Blood-In-The-Streets-Yet?-Bob Davis Podcast 909

Blood In The Streets

First of all the phrase ‘blood in the streets’ means you buy when everything goes to hell, learn more in Blood-In-The-Streets-Yet?-Bob Davis Podcast 909. Second of all you have to wonder if we’re getting to that point.

Predicting The Future Is For Suckers

I don’t like predicting the future. I like to wait and see what happens and consequently make judgements.

Streets Are Sensitive To Shocks

On the other hand word travels fast these days. We’re very sensitive to shock. We often are responding at the same time leaders are responding. Long before any in depth facts can be determined.

Perception Is Reality

Moreover in this environment the old saw ‘Perception Is Reality‘ is more true than ever.

Wait and See

I am often asked what I think of some political development. Joe Biden’s ‘sudden surge’. The ‘Super Tuesday‘ results. I still think ‘wait and see’ is the best approach.

Markets Rule The Roost Right Now

Especially relevant now is the course Coronavirus will take. More importantly the economic effects triggered by the real time reactions to the virus.

Each Podcast Needs Clarification

I have been podcasting about just these topics. Furthermore it seems like each podcast needs more clarification.

Primaries and Candidates

In Blood-In-The-Streets-Yet?-Bob Davis Podcast 909 there’s clarification and amplification. There is also most noteworthy additional thoughts about the primaries and potential presidential candidates.

It’s A Long Way To November

Finally we have a long way to go until early November when we actually vote for candidates and initiatives in local, state, house and senate elections. And when we cast our preference for president.

Electoral College Or Congress?

Even more it will be mid December when the electoral college will choose a president. Or, God forbid, the US Congress. A lot can happen between now and then.

About That Blood In The Streets Question

Maybe it would be better to return to the question at the beginning of this blog. Is there blood in the streets yet? And what does it mean.

What’s a Monger Dad?

First of all a monger is someone who deals in something. These days with Coronavirus you might find yourself being called a fearmonger. Learn more in Fearmonger-Fishmonger-Virusmonger-Bob Davis Podcast 908.

Virus Fear

Especially relevant is my most recent podcast. I said if the virus causes an economic slowdown it would limit the President’s shot for a second term.

Not Just The Market

Moreover I did not base my analysis on the stock market. I know full well ups and downs will happen everyday until Covid-19 runs its course.

Things Should ALWAYS Go Smoothly Right?

I want to talk about how we expect things to go smoothly no matter what.

Always Right…Never Wrong

In addition, time to talk about how predictions about a developing story having to be one hundred percent correct all the time.

Fake News!

Most noteworthy, politicians who demonize media that doesn’t follow the party line. Fake News! Lies! Political Agenda!

Nothing To See Here Folks

Also the idea that ‘professionals’ are in charge. There’s nothing to worry about here! Just go back to your homes and wait for further instructions.

Projecting An Air Of Confidence

These days public and corporate officials project an air of confidence and competency.

Consequently our companies and governments maintain a a veneer of perfection publicly.

What happens when smart people make things go wrong? Check it out in Fearmonger-Fishmonger-Virusmonger-Bob Davis Podcast 908.

Cascade To Crisis

We’re on top of this! Nothing to worry about! Then, the unexpected cascade into crisis.

How do we react when the ‘super competent’ are swamped?

Complex Developing Crises

In conclusion don’t be so quick to judge someone’s takeaway today. Tomorrow they might be right. Especially when it comes to complex and developing crises.

Dog-Fashion-Show-2-4-1-Bob Davis Podcast 906

First of all I came back from the mega road trip for a friend’s event in Minneapolis. Second back in the studio and sharing some final thoughts about the road trip. Check it out in Dog-Fashion-Show-2-4-1-Bob Davis Podcast 906.

These days no one talks about these events where people from all walks of life have interests that bring them together. I talk a lot about events like that in my podcasts.

So it was most noteworthy to attend an event that helps animals in need. In fact it was a surprise to find out I was going to have to emcee the event!

Even more coming back for this event made me think of all the places and experiences I had on a road trip that turned out to be much longer than I thought it was going to be. Learn more in Dog-Fashion-Show-2-4-1-Bob Davis Podcast 906.

Especially relevant? Coming away from these road trips in awe of how big this country actually is. Moreover the contrast between the smallness of social media and how diverse we Americans actually are!

In the second half of this podcast some final thoughts about broken politics. Especially relevant? Russian Trolls ‘influencing’ the 2020 election. Again.

I have to point out the glaring difference between what we appear to be on social media and how we really are.

Finally my critics on one side of the political spectrum can’t seem to understand why I covered ‘the democrats’ in Iowa. Seems like no one can bear to listen to something they might disagree with!

I tell the story of getting kicked out of a Mike Pence event versus being welcomed with open arms by the supposedly ‘horrible’ democrats. I’ll also tell you why I am sitting this election and future elections out.
