Nocturnal-Thoughts-Seasonal Changes-Bob Davis Podcast 867

Night Owls Unite

I am a night person. Always was and will be. These days though it’s getting ridiculous. Staying up really late for a free wheeling talker in Nocturnal-Thoughts-Seasonal Changes-Bob Davis Podcast 867.

Extreme Night Person Here

Anyone who knows me is well aware of my scheduling extremes. Especially relevant are the changes I go through when the seasons change. Suddenly also Minnesotans are beginning to get scratchy throats and head colds. Here it comes.

Schedule Flip and SAD Light

First of all, sometimes I stay up so late I end up coming back around. This is what I call schedule flip. Then use something called a SAD light to reset my body clock. During this process I am in schedule hell. Staying up late and waking up too early.

Texts From Friends

Second as I am in the midst of this sleep schedule nightmare I am getting texts from friends. “Did you cover the Trump Rally?“, they want to know. So, unfortunately I have to address these questions in Nocturnal-Thoughts-Seasonal Changes-Bob Davis Podcast 867.

Dumpster Fire News

Because if I have learned anything traveling across the country and covering primaries and caucuses it is that the media loves a dumpster fire. Certainly Minneapolis did not disappoint, with dueling enthusiastic supporters of the president and protesters.

Traveling And Reporting

Above all it looks to me like the question, “Is It News?” hasn’t occurred to anyone. Certainly nothing wrong with getting a bunch of people together to collect email data and campaign contributions and to have something to post on social media. That goes for both sides in these cartoon political times.

Real News? Funny, Right?

Meanwhile the real news? Not getting addressed and ‘bubbling under’ when it comes to real coverage. The situation with Turkey and the Kurds. Stories about the Repo markets and federal reserve returning to a form of quantitative easing you would think would be unnecessary, what with the booming economy.

Talk It Out

Consequently it’s time to just talk it out. Kind of a transition between some of my heavily researched recent podcasts.

Summer’s Long Goodbye

As a result it’s a long goodbye to a great summer and the difficult transition to fall in this podcast. And considering my sleep schedule please don’t fact check on this one!

Backroads-Iowa-Real-Farmers-Talk-Bob Davis Podcast 843

Time For Real Talk

I think it’s time to talk to real farmers. I want to know about the issues effecting their lives and businesses these days. Time for a trip to rural Iowa in Backroads-Iowa-Real-Farmers-Talk-Bob Davis Podcast 843.

People Media Doesn’t Have Time For

Moreover farmers know big city media doesn’t have time for them.

Beware 2020 Political Coverage In Iowa Focused On The Cities

As a result most political coverage for 2020 is already coming out of the urban centers in the state.

Staged Events

I covered the Iowa Caucuses in 2016. Most of events were staged toward network television.

Operatives and Activists

In addition the crowds portrayed in the news as ‘grassroots’ were in fact political operatives and activists.

Truth is nobody is talking to real people. Moreover farm institutions don’t always speak for them either.

Family Farmers

Meet Mark Haselhuhn. Mark and his family have been farming in Iowa for generations. What’s most noteworthy about Mark?  He’s not a big corporate farmer.

Trade and China

Especially relevant are his opinions concerning trade issues and the recent dust up with China over Tariffs. Later we’re joined by Mark’s recently retired friend and helper, Leo.

Real People

While media continues to spend it’s time telling us all what to think, seems like we should listen to some real people for once. That’s what I do in Backroads-Iowa-Real-Farmers-Talk-Bob Davis Podcast 843.

Unvarnished Opinions

From economics to immigration the unvarnished opinions of real voters and influential family farmers might surprise you. Above all it isn’t surprising that in this neck of the woods, politicians aren’t knocking on doors or walking through fields to ask farmers what they think. Even more the media isn’t either. Until the Bob Davis Podcasts came along.

Quit Bickering

Finally one of the key points of our conversation involves the desire for these two farmers to see politicians quit their bickering and work together. They don’t like the ‘My Way Or The Highway’ approach of either side of the so called political spectrum.

No Illusions

In conclusion it’s sad that Mark and Leo don’t have any illusions about whether politicians will start working together anytime soon.

(Editor’s Note: Special thanks to Mark’s daughter Emma for arranging this interview on a moment’s notice. In addition, guiding me to the farm via Facetime in real time! I know your time is precious, and I really appreciated the opportunity to talk to Mark and Leo. We’ll check in with them early next year.)

Pole Shift Happening-Soon-Latest YouTube Craze-Bob Davis Podcast 796

2018 was the year for religious prophets to predict the end of the world and be wrong. Seems like 2019 is starting off with a bang. It’s all about a flip of the Earth’s magnetic poles these days. Up is Down. Down is Up! Learn more in Pole Shift Happening-Soon-Latest YouTube Craze-Bob Davis Podcast 796.

True North Ain’t True No More

Especially relevant is the movement of the magnetic North Pole from the arctic over Canada, toward Siberia. Our magnetic pole is moving so fast even NASA has put out emails noting the speed of the shift and its effect on your devices and GPS systems.

From Canada To Siberia

According to NASA the northern magnetic pole is racing away from Canada toward Siberia with ‘surprising acceleration’. While the magnetic poles normally ‘wobble’ around, this is unprecedented. Enter YouTube to save the day.

Disaster Porn

Suddenly YouTube is full of videos describing calamity and disaster. From Russia Today to the BBC and all points in between. Moreover it won’t be long until the mainstream cable networks and broadcast television get hold of this story and run with it. Step right up and get your disaster supplies right here!

cYouTube Goes Overboard Again

Due to intertest in moderately factual accounts of the magnetic pole movement YouTubers have gone overboard with all kinds of information and theories. As a result factual lines are getting blurred. Theory becomes immanent danger with warnings that the actual geographic north and south polls will follow the magnetic poles, and the earth’s rotational axis will ‘flip’.

Minneapolis and Saint Paul Will Be The New Miami!

Most noteworthy to Minnesotans is the prospect of Minnesota slipping down to the equator in a new orientation. Could this happen? Theoretically possible. Would we survive it? To go from 13 degrees to 93 degrees in one afternoon? All of us northerners would like to try!

Sleeping Psychics, Sumer and the Plastic Crust

Finally, who came up with these theories to begin with? From Edgar Cayce, “The Sleeping Psychic” to Immanuel Velikovsky and Zechariah Sitchin. In Pole Shift Happening-Soon-Latest YouTube Craze-Bob Davis Podcast 796 I tie it all together and you can decide.
