Is Populism The Road To Oblivion?

First of all, I’ll say it if no one else will. I think our politics is too focused on ‘the little guy’. Is populism the road to oblivion for us? Learn more in  America’s-Road-To-Oblivion-Bob Davis Podcast 888.

What’s Populism?

What is Populism? Where did it come from? I’ll tell you in this podcast.

Give The People What They Want, Right?

Certainly populism as a tactic does not have a cohesive ideology. I will point out it’s not about addressing specific issues. It’s about giving the people what they want.

Business As Usual Especially When They Say They It Won’t Be

Moreover I think politicians playing to the cheap seats risk making very bad decisions. Finally, it’s not just politicians.

Voting Against Yourself

It’s especially relevant to remember voters often make choices against their own best interests.

Democrats AND Republicans

Furthermore populism doesn’t call one of the two parties ‘home’. Populism is present in both party’s ‘business as usual’ politicians.

That’s Right…Populism

Consequently when democrats promise free basic incomes, free education and free health insurance. Or when republicans promise trade policies to protect coal miners, steel workers and farmers. It’s all the same. Populism.

A More Powerful Government

Meanwhile it sure seems like this trend leads to a more dangerously powerful and expensive government. Learn more in America’s-Road-To-Oblivion-Bob Davis Podcast 888.

Banana Republic Or Rome?

Due to masses lining up with their hands out, blaming capitalism or the deep state for all their problems we’re on the road to oblivion. We might end up banana republic, joining the other dead societies in history. Hence, Oblivion.

Don’t Hold Your Breath

Therefore I offer a small quiet voice of protest. Will it get fixed? Not anytime soon I am afraid.

Sorry but…

This just has to run its course.

(Editor’s Note: I refer to William Jennings Bryan as Wilson’s ‘former’ Secretary of State when discussing the election of 1896. Obviously Jennings became Secretary of State much later.)

Nocturnal-Thoughts-Seasonal Changes-Bob Davis Podcast 867

Night Owls Unite

I am a night person. Always was and will be. These days though it’s getting ridiculous. Staying up really late for a free wheeling talker in Nocturnal-Thoughts-Seasonal Changes-Bob Davis Podcast 867.

Extreme Night Person Here

Anyone who knows me is well aware of my scheduling extremes. Especially relevant are the changes I go through when the seasons change. Suddenly also Minnesotans are beginning to get scratchy throats and head colds. Here it comes.

Schedule Flip and SAD Light

First of all, sometimes I stay up so late I end up coming back around. This is what I call schedule flip. Then use something called a SAD light to reset my body clock. During this process I am in schedule hell. Staying up late and waking up too early.

Texts From Friends

Second as I am in the midst of this sleep schedule nightmare I am getting texts from friends. “Did you cover the Trump Rally?“, they want to know. So, unfortunately I have to address these questions in Nocturnal-Thoughts-Seasonal Changes-Bob Davis Podcast 867.

Dumpster Fire News

Because if I have learned anything traveling across the country and covering primaries and caucuses it is that the media loves a dumpster fire. Certainly Minneapolis did not disappoint, with dueling enthusiastic supporters of the president and protesters.

Traveling And Reporting

Above all it looks to me like the question, “Is It News?” hasn’t occurred to anyone. Certainly nothing wrong with getting a bunch of people together to collect email data and campaign contributions and to have something to post on social media. That goes for both sides in these cartoon political times.

Real News? Funny, Right?

Meanwhile the real news? Not getting addressed and ‘bubbling under’ when it comes to real coverage. The situation with Turkey and the Kurds. Stories about the Repo markets and federal reserve returning to a form of quantitative easing you would think would be unnecessary, what with the booming economy.

Talk It Out

Consequently it’s time to just talk it out. Kind of a transition between some of my heavily researched recent podcasts.

Summer’s Long Goodbye

As a result it’s a long goodbye to a great summer and the difficult transition to fall in this podcast. And considering my sleep schedule please don’t fact check on this one!

Toxic

I don’t think it matters where you come down on the process of impeaching Donald Trump. What’s especially relevant is the fact that the media has been praying for this. Due to this, politics will only continue to permeate our culture. Has it reached terminal toxicity? One can only hope. Learn more in Trump-Democrats-Ruin-Thanksgiving-Christmas-Bob Davis Podcast 865.

Live From My Garage

I did not want to do an overtly political podcast about this nonsense in Washington. So come with me to run some errands and we’ll talk about it, as we go live from my two garages.

High Crimes Expertise

Even more I wasn’t on the call with the President of the Ukraine, so I don’t know what was said. Sure I can read the so called ‘transcript’ but I’m not an expert when it comes to high crimes. What about you?

Run Its Course

Consequently whether you see what is going on now in Washington as the Democratic Campaign for the Presidency or a Witch Hunt, this thing has to run its course. Unfortunately.

Not Going Away

Certainly this whole thing isn’t going away anytime soon. Find out why in Trump-Democrats-Ruin-Thanksgiving-Christmas-Bob Davis Podcast 865

Ruining Christmas and Thanksgiving

Therefore prepare to have your crazy uncle Joe and your Brother In Law ruin Thanksgiving and Christmas this year.

Latin America Style Corruption

As far as I am concerned and above all, I have come to the conclusion that the United States Government is pretty well shot through with corruption, legal and illegal.

For Some Time

Furthermore I can make the case this has been true for some time.

Government Too Powerful

It’s all due to the growth of government power we the people have allowed.

Shut Down Santa and Mrs Claus?

Who wants to shut down Santa Claus?

Perfumed Princes In Washington DC

Consequently I won’t be breathlessly relating the latest development in the impeachment saga, attacking or defending the president or any of these other perfumed princes and princesses in the capitol.

Cancer

Finally my biggest concern is how these kinds of issues spread to our screens like a cancer.

Battlegrounds

My own analysis of the president’s current approval ratings in battleground states is key.

All Bets Are Off

The democrats may have had the president in 2020 in those battlegrounds. Too bad for them. Now all bets are off.

Gossip Is News

Maybe someday the American People will turn away from this constant barrage of political gossip. Don’t hold your breath, though.
