World-Gone-Crazy-Bob Davis Podcast 1044

A World Gone Crazy

Firstly extraordinary circumstances cause me to break down key issues in a World Gone Crazy. Find out what’s up with me out here in the desert in World-Gone-Crazy-Bob Davis Podcast 1044.

Financial Strain

Secondly someone needs to explain some facts as our financial system faces significant financial strain.

Most importantly this is as close as I’ll ever be to discussing politics.

Causes

However I am limiting myself to talking about what’s causing this financial strain.

No Picnic

Certainly what Americans are experiencing right now is no picnic.

Nomads are no exception.

Options

But we do have some options folks back home may not have.

Mobile

Importantly we’re mobile.

Free Camping

Even more we camp for free.

Fuel Prices Slowing My Roll

On the other hand the high cost of fuel has certainly slowed my roll.

And everyone else out here in the land of the nomad.

Stress Anyone?

Meanwhile a majority of Americans say they are under a great deal of stress right now.

A Mix Of Bad News

To clarify we’ve had a pandemic. Inflation has already made food, fuel and rent more expensive. And throw the Ukraine situation into the mix.

That’s a lot of stress.

But as a the result of hitting the road stress is a little easier for me to manage right now.

What’s Next?

Most importantly what happens next?

Financial Stress

Firstly our financial system is under a lot of stress

Stagflation

Stagflation is a concern.

Inflation

Inflation is ravaging all of us.

Deflation

On the other hand the cure for high prices may eventually be high prices.

No To Higher Prices

Even more I don’t think we can accept prices this high and eventually we will reject them.

Recession Ahead

That is to say eventually high prices effect demand to the point where an economic recession develops.

Certainly some economists think we’re nearing that point.

Weird Tension In The World

Above all with the situation in the Ukraine and Eastern Europe getting more tense by the day I feel like we have to take certain steps to protect ourselves. Details in World-Gone-Crazy-Bob Davis Podcast 1044.

Not Easy

Finally these aren’t easy times.

Take A Break

So give yourself a break every now and then.

To sum up I don’t like talking about these things.

Living Life Through My Podcasts

But I live as much as my life as possible through these podcasts.

And this is what I am living through right now.

Tough-Decisions-Ahead-Bob Davis Podcast 957

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?

There-Is-Something-Going-On-Bob Davis Podcast 954

Have You Ever Felt Like There Is Something Going On?

Firstly have you ever felt like there is something going on? Something you can’t quite put a finger on. More importantly a feeling welling up from deep inside. That’s what There-Is-Something-Going-On-Bob Davis Podcast 954 is all about.

Feelings Rule In This Podcast

Second I know this is weird. Therefore this is not a ‘fact-based’ podcast. This is about feelings and trusting your feelings or intuition.

Wanting To Go!

Most importantly many people seem to have this instinctive urge to ‘get away’. To ‘Go’. So this podcast is for them.

Everyone Wants to Go To Ground

In addition real estate in rural and exurban areas is hot right now. Lots of houses in the city up for sale. RV’s sales and prices are through the roof.

All At Once

Seems like everyone wants to hit the road, move to the country. All at once.

Is There Something Going On?

Certainly this begs the question. Is this some kind of animal instinct. Like going to ground before an earthquake?

What Do We Do With Our Instincts?

Moreover do we listen to our instincts or rationalize them away? And, what happens when we do that?

Not Everyone Can Be A Nomad Or Buy A Farm

Meanwhile life goes on. Not everyone can become a nomad or buy a farm.

The Rational And The Sensitive

Finally some do not feel the urge at all.

Doesn’t Mean There Isn’t Something Going On

On the other hand if some feel it and some don’t one doesn’t invalidate the other.

Feel The Feels

In the same vein I’ll just say I feel this urge strongly.

Trouble Ahead

Even more, my instincts tell me there’s more trouble ahead and this might be what some people are reacting to.

Mayhem And Madness…Seem Normal Now

In the same vein, fill in the blank with whatever mayhem you think we might have to face.

2020 Is A Very Strange Year

Given what we have already dealt with in 2020, I don’t think anyone can say, “That’s not going to happen”, with any degree of confidence!

Strange Brew

In conclusion, I don’t know what I’ll do with these feelings.

Speak My Truth And Move On

Finally I do know that I can’t move on with my regular podcast schedule without getting this off my chest. That is what I do in There-Is-Something-Going-On-Bob Davis Podcast 954.
