Live From The Political Wilderness!

These days the only way to see things clearly is stand back. Way back. I live in the high country. The wilderness. Learn more in Live-From-The-Wilderness-Bob Davis Podcast 949.

Been Here For Years

Firstly I’ve been here in the wilderness for years.

Best Approach For Listeners and Subscribers

Secondly I think the wilderness has turned out to be best thing for subscribers and listeners of this podcast.

Political Realignment

Because of my vantage point I see a big political realignment coming and I don’t have a dog in that race.

Trapped In The Roach Motel Of Politics

Even more those still trapped in the republican or democrat world might seriously think about the so called wilderness as a destination.

How The Party System Changes

Above all this podcast defines the party system and explains what realignment might mean.

Not Hearing What I Need To Hear

I have certainly said I am not hearing what I need to hear from the mainline political parties.

Land Of Political Confusion

During the time I have been in the high country the political confusion has only increased.

Nothing Seems To Make Sense

Likewise for many nothing seems to make sense anymore.

Hope For The Future

On the other hand there is a hopeful reason for this confusion. That’s what I want to talk about in Live-From-The-Wilderness-Bob Davis Podcast 949.

Forging A New Party System

To clarify I think the winner, or loser of the 2020 election may forge a new party system in the United States.

It’s As American As…

That is to say the political make up of the two main parties is about to change significantly. This has happened in the same vein in America several times since the 1790’s.

Partisan Commentators That Attack Their Standard Bearers Are Still Partisan

Finally I take some shots at commentators on one side the current divide as well as protesters on the other.

Our Political System Has To Change

To sum up it’s clear our political system has to change. We’re not addressing new technologies and the changes it brings. There’s been no real discussion of our approach to the rest of the world and our real economic problems or opportunities in this political season.

Something To Think About

In conclusion part of the mission of these podcasts is to give listeners and subscribers something to think about rather than to push you down a path.

Your Vote Is Your Business

I’ve always thought what you fight for and how you vote is your business and your business alone.

Election2020-Joe Biden-Council-Bluffs-Bob Davis Podcast 899

Final Few Hours Before Caucus

These are the last few hours of the Iowa campaigns for the caucuses to be held February 3rd. First of all, I’m all over the state getting all the candidates before the big day. Joe Biden is featured in Election2020-Joe Biden-Council-Bluffs-Bob Davis Podcast 899.

I’ve covered a lot of political rallies and conventions over the years. Due to that experience I can say, few work a crowd better than the former Vice President.

Avoids The Podium

Maybe because of his experience he moves slow and walks around more than some candidates. Biden addresses people personally. He doesn’t always use the podium.

East Coast Style

Most noteworthy is his east coast style. Stories about his mother. Family. Personal thank yous to the firefighters for ‘saving my sons’ lives’, and so on. Jokes about his wife’s cat. Learn more in Election2020-Joe Biden-Council-Bluffs-Bob Davis Podcast 899.

All About Trump

For this democratic candidate like all the others though, it’s about President Trump.

Trump. Nazis. Fascism!

Trump’s treatment of the military. Trump’s tax cuts. Furthermore how he handles foreign policy. As with all of the democratic candidates I’ve seen so far, oblique or direct references to Nazi Germany.

Using Government For Good

Certainly there’s the long list of programs. The idea here is to use government to help people. In addition the explanations of tax policy, to ‘pay’ for those programs.

Sense Of Urgency

Even more creating a sense of urgency on Climate Change and finally on the need to unite and lead a country that’s in dire need of rebuilding.

Mix And Match Other Candidates Slogans And Programs

Above all the experience of seeing all the democratic candidates tends to gel in the observer’s mind. They steal each other’s slogans, mix and match programs and ideas.

Uniting The Country

Similarly every speaker is the one and only who can bind up the wounds and unite the country after the terrible scourge that is Trump. Joe Biden is no different on that score. But it’s really about winning.

Will Americans Agree?

In conclusion the real question is whether every day Americans who vote, see Trump as a scourge. More importantly for Joe Biden, whether they decide he’s the guy who can get the job done.

Time will tell.

Growing Up In An Orphanage-Sal Di Leo-Author-Podcast 711

A tough little kid named Sal Di Leo, taken away from his mother and sent to live in an orphanage. That’s how this story starts. Follow the turns and twists as that 6 year old becomes a man. We’ll talk to author Sal Di Leo in Growing Up In An Orphanage-Sal Di Leo-Author-Podcast 711.

Not A Crime Novel

Joliet, Illinois. Early 1960’s. When his father leaves his mother and his 11 brothers and sisters with no heat and no money, a 6 year old and his older brother cope by any means necessary. They are dirty and hungry. The only help they get is from the nuns at their school. Sounds like the beginning of a crime novel, right?

Turning A Life Around

Not so fast. Sal joins The Bob Davis Podcasts to tell a story of self discovery that leads to gratitude. It starts with the sisters at a catholic orphanage, in Joliet, Illinois. Sal’s story also includes 4 years at BoysTown and a few twists and turns in life after BoysTown. Hear the story in Growing Up In An Orphanage-Sal Di Leo-Author-Podcast 711.

Gratitude and Service

These days there’s a lot of talk about character. More than a few thick books define character and preach about how to develop the attribute. Sal has packed more about character into “Did I Ever Thank You, Sister?” than many of those best sellers because he has lived it. Check out Sal Di Leo’s story in Growing Up In An Orphanage-Sal Di Leo-Author-Podcast 711.

This is a story you don’t hear very often these days. So many documentaries and speakers are out to run down the church. Every now and then though, you find a gem. Especially relevant is the fact that the sisters at Sal’s orphanage provided a very real home and base for an angry little kid to grow into a man.

Sal is an inspirational speaker, author and businessman. (Editor’s Note: You can also book Sal for speaking at 612-382-3582)
