Tough Decisions Ahead

These days it seems like tough decisions are ahead for everyone. Me too. Let’s talk about it in Tough-Decisions-Ahead-Bob Davis Podcast 957.

Things Aren’t What They Seem

First of all the truth is things aren’t what they seem. At least that’s my takeaway.

When The Going Gets Tough

Second of all when the going gets tough, decisions have to be made.

Normal People Take The Brunt

Most importantly normal everyday people are the ones that struggle the most with choices.

Ranches, Road Trips and Renters

I can’t tell you how many people I know who have told me about some plan to move to a ranch in New Mexico, go out on the road, or take in renters.

More Stimulus?

Even more there’s talk of more stimulus and government spending. And here I thought the economy was going strong.

A Sea Of Nonsense

I say we’re living in a sea of nonsense. I’ve already talked about how useless political content is in a world awash with speculation and ‘experts’ at every turn.

Turning A Blind Eye To So Called Coaches

In addition what about the nonsense these so called ‘coaches’ are spewing on social media.

Content Has To Change

I’ve also certainly talked about how I can change my own content in that regard.

One Spectacle After Another

Meanwhile with so many ‘one day stories’ all the copycat content about the debates seems silly. Especially with the spectacle of the president’s back and forth with Covid-19 and the hospital over a recent weekend.

Back To Those Tough Decisions

Above all we’re living in a time when soon most of us will be forced to make tough decisions.

In Tough-Decisions-Ahead-Bob Davis Podcast 957 I wonder how my listeners and subscribers approach those decisions.

My Experience

Further I tell a few stories I’ve gleaned from my experience and from others.

Curve Balls and Wild Pitches

Sometimes life throws curve balls.

Similarly I have to wonder if we’re about to receive the mother of all wild pitches.

In conclusion how do we make those tough decisions?

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.)
