Unicorns and Rainbows For Trump Zombies

They call them ‘Trump Zombies‘. These days, to them, whatever he does is golden. The president’s fanboys are now claiming he will easily win the 2020 election by a landslide. What are the chances? In Landslide-Trump-Zombie-Dreams-Bob Davis Podcast 848.

Pundits Already See 2020’s Outcome

It’s more than a year from the 2020 election. The commentators and pundits are already telling us what will happen. Moreover their predictions are nothing more than wishful thinking.

Landslide. Really?

I’ll start with actual vote totals rather than early polls. Moreover I’ll talk about what a ‘landslide victory‘ is. Finally, what even an electoral landslide victory for the president would be built on.

Pundits On Rich Guy’s Dole

Certainly these pundits and commentators are on a rich political operator’s payroll. They’re voices are not their own.

I Know You’re Lying Cause Your Lips Are Moving

It’s most noteworthy that the things the people on TV and Talk Radio say often end up in the discourse. Especially when they’re telling you what you want to hear, which is when their lips are moving. Especially relevant is, people don’t know how to fact check the steady flow of nonsense that passes for ‘news’ in America. Even the fact checkers.

Independent Voices

As a result it is left to independent voices like me to go through the so called ‘battleground states‘ and examine vote totals from 2016, and review vote totals and turn out for 2018 to get closer to an answer to the question, could Trump achieve a landslide victory in 2020? That’s what I do in Landslide-Trump-Zombie-Dreams-Bob Davis Podcast 848.

It’s Votes Not Passion

In conclusion it depends on votes. Not passion. Not polls. Pundits don’t decide who wins. It’s easy to call a winner when the president is one of the known factors and the other team hasn’t picked a standard bearer.

Trump Zombies In Barcaloungers

Trump’s Zombie Army ought to plan on a lot of door knocking and hard political work if they want to win by a landslide.

Peak Summer

We’re living through a pretty intense time these days. Moreover I noticed something I call ‘peak summer‘ recently. It’s a pristine moment when time seems to stop and you can’t get enough. Learn more in Peak-Summer-Triggers-Transformation-Bob Davis Podcast 847.

A Time To Transcend The BS

In addition I think summer has a transformational quality. You can transcend all the BS. Especially in that moment when evening turns to dusk, the moon rises, and night starts to come on.

Power of Sound Gets It Across

I am fascinated with the power of sound. You can’t really film peak summer. Oh sure, some movies capture it. Pictures sometimes get it. On the other hand recording peak summer bottles the experience.

Evening Becomes Night and You Are There

As a result I have been out recording blocks of sound. In Peak-Summer-Triggers-Transformation-Bob Davis Podcast 847 listen to evening become night. You’ll have to put up with my explanation of why summer is transformative and some summer memories.

Summer Memories

I first experienced peak summer when I was a kid. Seems like around twelve, thirteen or fourteen. When you hit that age there is a natural separation from the family and a yearning for freedom.

Freedom and Independence

Maybe due to age, maybe by my insistence, my parents relaxed the rules a little during those times. I got to stay out later. Spent the night on the front porch, or in my fort in the backyard.

A Night Owl Returns To His Roots

I’ve always been a night owl. Consequently I spent a lot of time on the front stoop on those summer nights, listening to the radio and dreaming the way a kid dreams about the future.

It’s most noteworthy that these days I seem to have returned to those halcyon days. The glow of the street lights. Wind in the trees. The sound of trains in the big switching yard in my home down.

Don’t Forget To Enjoy It

We’re at the moment of peak summer right  now. Enjoy It.

Magic

I don’t have to tell people who live in the Upper Midwest, it’s a fleeting and magical moment. But I can share it with you…

Seven States On This Tour

People ask me what it’s like to roll through seven states in nine days. From Eastern Tennessee to the Ozarks in this podcast. Most noteworthy is a night drive. Summertime. Windows down. Join me in Back-Road-Night-Drive-Bliss-Bob Davis Podcast 842.

Angling Up

My big thing is ‘angling up’. Rolling out of Eastern Tennessee to Nashville, and then Northwest on US 70 West. Through the night.

All Back Roads

Especially relevant? All back roads and small towns. Some of them county roads and bad state roads. It’s late. A full moon. Warm and humid.

Going With The Flow. Nothing Else Matters

The theme for this podcast is the question of what’s it like to ‘go with the flow’. Sometimes you end up in a Walmart parking lot and sometimes you end up in a beautiful campsite with a fire already lit and plenty of wood.

Heading Northwest In Tennessee

From Atwood to Milan, Trenton to Dyersburg and Tiptonville it’s most noteworthy that I am visiting places in the Volunteer State I have never seen. Moreover I see the same development in some of the small towns visible in cities.

Travel Alone

Most importantly people wonder what it is like to travel alone. First of all you have to be okay with single person travel. Moreover if you take someone with you, they have to be a good spur-of-the-moment traveler. Seems like the best things happen when you are just in the moment. This is not pin-point efficiency.

Mobile Podcast Command is not a plush RV. And…we use maps!

Major Lessons Learned

Above all every now and then there’s a miscalculation that takes you many miles off course. Travelers have to be okay with those kinds of outcomes. On this drive, a major miscalculation meant a major lesson learned. It’s all good though. Learn more in Back-Road-Night-Drive-Bliss-Bob Davis Podcast 842.

Covering A Lot of Space

Finally there are a lot of people out on the road today. Whether they’re doing the Van Life thing, or camping in one of the national or state parks every now and then, I don’t know too many who cover the space I do in a short time frame.

Happiness is…

In conclusion at the end of this day of travel, I am convinced there are so many lessons learned on the back roads, this is what it’s all about. It really is true. Happiness is a clean windshield and a full tank of gas!
