The-Politics-Of-Panic-Bob Davis Podcast 910

Pandemic Panic

Time to talk about Panic. Especially the politics of panic. What does the word ‘panic’ mean? All that and more in The-Politics-Of-Panic-Bob Davis Podcast 910.

Fourth Podcast About Coronavirus

First of all this is the fourth in a series of podcasts on Coronavirus.

If It Bleeds…It Leads

I certainly did not intend to do a series on Coronavirus. However it’s rise to an official pandemic is most noteworthy.

Ladies and Gentlemen, if it bleeds it leads.

Four Podcasts Anticipating Current Events

Even more these podcasts have anticipated effects in the markets.

Right now the questions are, how bad will it get and what will the political effects be.

Enter the word ‘Panic’

If you are interested in real statistics regarding the spread of Covid-19 you believe ‘fake’ news.

Try to prepare by doing something you think might help your family? Panic.

Moreover media covering the story are automatically guilty of panic if they don’t parrot the party line, which apparently is this is not very serious.

In addition statements made from the White House in an attempt to damp down concern are often contradicted almost immediately.

Blame Everyone

Blame the media. Or China. Say the democrats are making a big deal out of this.

Blame the president for his off the cuff style and colorful language.

He blames CNN and the previous president.

Let’s not forget social media because it brings out the worst human instincts at times like these.

This Ain’t No Party

Finally one wonders whether we are truly panicking.

This Ain’t No Disco

Selling stock because the market is going down isn’t necessarily panic.

This Ain’t No Time For Fooling Around

Buying toilet paper may seem silly but it hardly qualifies as panic.

Measured And Careful Response

In conclusion Covid-19 is now a worldwide pandemic. That is officially a serious problem.

It’s reasonable to suggest a serious problem requires a measured and careful response that doesn’t minimize, spin, or denigrate people who are concerned about it.

Economic and Political Effects Snowballing

A measured and careful response is even more important as economic effects snowball and markets are effected.

I don’t think people trust the government anymore.

Can you blame them?

Oh right…you can!

Person-Of-The-Year-Stunt-Bob Davis Podcast 884

Person Of The Year…A Waste Of Time

I am not often amused by what passes for news these days. Moreover our obsession with year end lists and rankings bores me to tears. On the other hand Time’s ‘Person of The Year’ stunt is always worth a few laughs. Learn more in Person-Of-The-Year-Stunt-Bob Davis Podcast 884.

Poster Child Greta

First of all the decision to put Climate Change Poster Child Greta Thunberg on the cover as person of the year for 2020 has upset your crazy Uncle Fred and all his baby boomer conservative friends.

Baby Boomers Love Their FaceBook

Even more no one would have paid any attention until these aging baby boomers took to FB to express their rage. Meanwhile we’re missing key issues that really matter.

Time! Number One! A Hundred Years Ago

Especially relevant is the fact that Time Magazine struggles to remain relevant.

What used to be the number one weekly magazine in the United States about a hundred years ago, is a shadow of a shadow of its former self.

Ask SIRI or Alexa

For example, without asking SIRI or Alexa, can you remember last year’s person of the year?

Crazy Uncle Changes Positions on Climate Change!

What’s more when was the last time anyone convinced anyone to change their position on Climate Change?

United Nations…Hotbed Of Capitalists!

Greta’s most noteworthy rage against the machine of conservative capitalists at the United Nations is pure comedy.

Stunt Culture and Person-Of-The-Year-Stunt-Bob Davis

Certainly we’re missing something here. I believe it must be said. Again. We live in a stunt culture. If the current president has proven anything it is drawing attention to yourself is the path to power and profit.

Constant Manipulation

As a result we are submerged in a fish tank of constant manipulation by all kinds of media in this country, feeding on one stunting public personality after another.

Like Moths To A Flame

They can’t help themselves and neither can we.

Taking The Bait Over and Over

Too bad so called conservatives have taken the bait. Again.

Kinda Funny Though

Although I must admit, some of the Greta Memes are pretty funny.

Toss Up House Elections 2018 Part 2-Bob Davis Podcast 754

Second in a series of podcasts detailing the so called toss up races in the 2018 midterm elections. Most noteworthy here are my observations about whether many of these elections are actually toss ups. Find out why I say this in Toss Up House Elections 2018 Part 2-Bob Davis Podcast 754.

Trump’s Future Hangs In The Balance

From Iowa, to Illinois. Kansas to Kentucky in this podcast you’ll find out why the media says the future of Donald Trump’s administration hangs in the balance. You’ll also find out whether the predicted ‘blue wave’ could be reality. Or not.

Details Without Partisanship

As I have said many times, one of the things our media loves to do these days is predict the future, The reason I am producing this series of podcasts is to give you the existing conditions in each of these districts without partisan comment or predictions. This series includes the Senate toss ups, and the Governor’s toss ups and part one of the house toss ups.

How Close Are They?

How close is the race in Illinois’ northwestern suburbs that make up the 6th district? What about all the predictions about 12th district which stretches from the working class Saint Louis suburbs across the river, all the way to the southern tip of the Land of Lincoln? Especially relevant here are predictions about Kentucky’s 6th district, which the president won by 17 points. When a candidate for president wins a state by over twenty points, is there a potential for backlash? Learn more in Toss Up House Elections 2018 Part 2-Bob Davis Podcast 754.

Telling The Voter What’s Going To Happen Before The Vote

These days it doesn’t matter whether you’re on network television or You Tube. If you have a national talk radio show or are a podcaster. Everyone wants to tell the voter what’s going to happen before it happens. If you listen to this series of my podcasts you’ll know the situation in these districts. You’ll know what races to watch on election night.

What IS The Situation?

Once the voters decides for themselves who their voting for on election night, they can sit back and watch the results knowing what races to look for. Why? Because someone looked at all the key races and without partisanship or rancor laid out what the situation is.

Fortune Tellers

Finally, many of these districts have no polling unless its done by partisan groups or political parties. Predictions are being made based on the 2016 election or because one party or another said they were ‘targeting’ that race. In conclusion our politics are too fluid for political fortune tellers to be accurate.
