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.

Dad-I-Bought-A-Buick-Bob Davis Podcast 923

Dad-I-Bought-A-Buick-Bob Davis Podcast 923

I don’t think I’m a car guy but now I bought a Buick! Certainly I love cars. Even more I know who to talk to about cars. Recently I bought a car my dad would have loved. Time to talk about my 1996 Buick Roadmaster with my friend Ken Madden in Dad-I-Bought-A-Buick-Bob Davis Podcast 923.

Escape From The Crazy With An Old School Cruiser

These days any distraction from the crazy is a good thing, right? That’s why when I had the opportunity to buy one of those ‘woody wagon‘ mid nineties cars, I jumped.

Buick With 72,000 Original Miles…In Dad-I-Bought-A-Buick-Bob Davis Podcast 923

Even more this one sat in a pole barn for ten years and has only about seventy thousand original miles.

Collector’s Item? I’d Like To Think So!

In a most noteworthy outcome I learned this car is not only a collectors item. This Buick is in high demand.

V8 Sedans and Wagons

Certainly this is as good a time as any to introduce podcast subscribers and listeners to a guy who’s driven these old V8 sedans and wagons for a long time.

Owned, Driven and Wrecked

From mid seventies Plymouth’s to Oldsmobile’s, Lincoln’s, Chevy’s and Buick’s, Ken Madden has owned, driven and wrecked more than his share of these big old American Beasts.

Powerful Memories

Especially relevant? These cars evoke powerful emotional memories for both of us. Find out why in Dad-I-Bought-A-Buick-Bob Davis Podcast 923. We need that nostalgia right about now.

Our Dad’s Loved To Buy Used Cars

Our dads preferred buying used cars. My dad would negotiate for a used Pontiac, Chevy or Buick until he’d pushed the sales guy over the edge. Ken’s dad did the same thing with Plymouth’s and Mercury’s.

Ride to Learn

Moreover the Maddens went cross-country with a trailer on the back of a Mercury wagon with 4 teenagers and a baby. My family barnstormed all over the Midwest and the South in a ’63 Chevy, 64′ Buick Electra Convertible. Later we hauled ass in the best of them all, a ’68 Buick Electra Convertible.

Clyde Barrow and The Chicago Gangsters And Their V8’s

Finally we devote a little time in this podcast to talking about the history of these big cars going back to the 1930’s. We also talk about their demise because of fuel standards in the 2000’s.

Mobile Podcast Command

I still have Mobile Podcast Command, a 2000 Ford Super Duty Diesel Ambulance. For sure keeping my 2007 Crown Victoria Police Car a little longer.

Now I’m That Guy Down The Block

In conclusion every neighborhood has one. The guy on the block with a bunch of old cars. That’s certainly the Maddens. Apparently I am now that guy too.
