Preppers Gone Wild

My inbox has been full of prepping info ever since I did the podcast about Ebola. These days if you think your phone isn’t listening to you, think again. Learn more in Doomsday-Prep-Overkill-Commonsense-Bob Davis Podcast 852.

Nuclear War

First of all is it necessary to prep for nuclear war? Hydrogen bombs are exponentially more powerful than the Hiroshima bomb.

Moreover Minneapolis and Saint Paul would be dust if we got nuked. In that case, what’s the prep for?

Ordering Your Supplies From Glenn Beck

Do I really need to spend six hundred dollars for a year’s supply of dried beans in case of a nuclear war?

If Jesus Is Coming You Don’t Need Supplies

Some people want to be ready for the day when our Lord Jesus returns. I thought Jesus will take the believers before the trouble starts. If you’re down with the Man, save your money on prepping. You’re out of here.

Collapse Of All Government May Be Just What The Doctor Ordered

What about Earthquakes? Hurricanes? Even more, a collapse of all government?

Freeze Dried Lasagna And Family Radios

Do I need dried food and hand charging radios for that? What if Yellowstone finally blows? Well, THAT one you might want to think about.

What To Prepare For…Really

People who live in the Upper Midwest should be prepared for two things. A power failure in the dead of winter and a really bad tornado. The only real concern is whether we can make it to the lake, and if we want to spend more time with the family.

What If People Pull Together In A Disaster?

Finally End Of The Worlders seem to think those who live in the exurbs will be beset by inner city hoards. But the Preppers all predict the people they don’t like won’t make it. Especially the liberals. But what if people work together in a disaster?

Prep Overkill

In conclusion there are things we should have a plan for. Time for an easy conversation about some of the things we should not worry about, on a beautiful summer night. Common sense says worrying about the rest of it is just overkill.

Who’s Running This Country Anyway?-Bob Davis Podcast 762

In Who’s Running This Country Anyway?-Bob Davis Podcast 762, I wonder if republicans and democrats really stand for different ideas about the future.

The Deep State

It’s especially relevant that our government is so complex we have to worry about who is ‘running the country’.

Who Runs The Country?

Fact is, our elected representatives just operate the government. We run the country. Almost four hundred million Americans. Working. Raising families. Starting businesses. Going about our lives.

Failed Leadership From Both Parties

Most noteworthy? The people we send to Washington DC don’t seem to be able to actually run our government.

Same Coin Different Day

Because republicans and democrats prove every day they represent two different sides of the same coin. Find out why I say that, in Who’s Running This Country Anyway?-Bob Davis Podcast 762.

Borrow, Spend and Tax

As a result, one party borrows trillions for ‘public works’ and ‘programs’. The other borrows trillions for ‘tax cuts’ and spending on defense.

Your Uncle Sam Is A Deadbeat

Above all every year the government gets bigger and further in debt.

Distract High School Distract Rape Distract Drinking

Meanwhile the millionaires in Washington have us fighting about what happened to two high school kids 36 years ago.

Real Power? Who Cares

Due to this no one can be bothered to talk about the nominee’s views on executive power, enhanced interrogation or surveillance.

Dangerous Situation

The immense power of government is dangerous to all of us. Doesn’t matter whether you fly the red or blue flag. No one is advocating exclusively for liberty and freedom from these enormous government agencies. Certainly not republicans or democrats.

Limiting The Power Of The State and Liberty

In conclusion the whole history of liberal democracy has been to limit and control state power. We seem to have forgotten that growth in government power causes its inefficiency and creates the conditions that breed tyranny. Learn more in Who’s Running This Country Anyway?-Bob Davis Podcast 762.

Charlottesville Is Final Nail In The Right’s Coffin-Podcast 656

Well before the 2016 primary campaign I posted a podcast announcing the death of the conservative movement. Whatever was left of the right is the final casualty this past weekend In Virginia. In Charlottesville Is Final Nail In The Right’s Coffin-Podcast 656.

A Deal With The Devil

During the 2016 presidential campaign Republican moderate leadership had the opportunity to allow the convention to move through the political process to select a candidate. Instead they chose to close ranks with a candidate famous for rhetoric and little else forcing that candidate on the American people. Surprisingly a week later, the democrats did the same thing. This faustian bargain resulted in a rhetorical presidency which has accomplished little.

Identity Politics Right Wing Style

In this way, the Grand Old Party closed ranks with the politics of division. Name calling and chaos. But wait! Right Wingers didn’t break windows or block freeways. It was the Left which used violence. Until now. In Charlottesville Is Final Nail In The Right’s Coffin-Podcast 656.

It Wasn’t Us!

Is it too soon to suggest humor in the irony of every paid commentator, blogger, show host and agitator of the right suddenly trying to show the world those people carrying Nazi Flags in Charlottesville aren’t really conservatives? Is it too soon to decry the loud mouths hocking constitutional conventions, fife and drum, messaging seminars and civil war?

Who is to blame? Everyone

Especially the voters. This generation of Americans. Children who think the louder they yell the better chance they have to get what they want. People who think good citizenship is doing a FaceBook Live video or throwing up a You Tube Channel predicting the end of the world. Commentators who want to tell you what happened when they weren’t there.

All Hat and No Cattle

People who refuse to help during election season but won’t miss a tea party meeting to discuss messaging and their version of the constitution. People who want to protest but can’t be bothered to stand up and run for office or do any of the hard work citizenship in a democratic society demands. Block a freeway? Why not! Shoot a congressman? Sure. Destroy someone online? Fun! Carry a nazi flag in a parade? Awesome! We’ll just blame the Mercers or George Soros. Doesn’t Matter.

Government Is More Powerful No Matter Who’s In Charge

Whatever you scream when you protest, one thing is true. Government power is more absolute. A prison we have created for ourselves is bankrupting us and destroying our society. National debt is dangerously high and climbing. Little more than window dressing passes for action. Political news watchers concern themselves with the latest greek drama live from the White House. Issues? Policy? You won’t get clicks with that.

Losing Equation

Neither majority nor minority provides anything close to leadership. Attacks and Counterattacks. Name calling. Gleeful enjoyment of this House of Cards. Surprise when it results in death. This does not end well.
