Travel With Higher Prices

Back on the road for travel with higher prices. Time to talk about the basic causes of high inflation and what’s ahead for nomads. Revisiting some topics from earlier podcasts. Listen to Travel-With-Higher-Prices-Bob Davis Podcast 1048.

Euphoria Back On The Road

Firstly even a short trip back on the road delivers the same euphoria and excitement longer trips delivered last year.

Things Have Changed

Second things have definitely changed.

People Don’t Understand What’s Happening

Even more after many discussions with people I’ve met recently there is clearly a lack of understanding what’s going on and what’s caused these prices.

All The Key Information Assembled Here

In addition I have not been able to find all the key information assembled in one place.

Therefore that is the plan for Travel-With-Higher-Prices-Bob Davis Podcast 1048.

The Cure For High Prices

Above all most of the time high prices lead to a recession.

Learn The Word Monetary

Certainly as Milton Friedman said Inflation is Always and Everywhere A Monetary Phenomenon.

Too Many Dollars

That is to say too many dollars chasing too few goods.

Recession Ahead

And inflation often leads to recession.

Good News For Nomads

Due to the fact that recessions often lead to lower prices things might be looking up for us nomads.

California Gas Gouger

Meanwhile the media and politicians don’t talk about high fuel taxes irrationally gouge working Americans.

For example California’s tax on diesel is 68 cents. On gas it’s nearly 52 cents.

Exxon Should Take A Lesson From California

Even the oil companies could take a lesson on gouging from the State Of California.

Short Trips

In short I took a short trip into the so called Golden State intending to head to Los Angeles.

Cash Leaking Out Of My Wallet

However I turned right around and came back to Arizona due to the amount of cash leaking out of my wallet.

Longer Stays and Free Camping Please

Most importantly it’s short trips, longer stays and free camping for this nomad.

There Goes The Punch Bowl

In addition as the Federal Reserve takes away the punch bowl and pulls the slats out from under the economy I’m cheering.

Stock and Real Estate Market Shocks

Finally what’s ahead for the world back home might be stock and real estate market crashes and inevitable job losses we nomads have our fingers crossed for lower prices.

No House To Lose Here

In short if you’re on the road full time you probably don’t have a house to lose or high rent to pay.

Why We Hit The Road

Moreover this was the reason many of us decided to hit the road.

Nomad Story

It’s an important park of the nomad story.

Falling Off A Cliff

To sum up big market moves usually don’t happen fast.

But it’s kind of like falling over a cliff and grabbing branches on the way down.

As you fall you’re up and down but the general direction is down.

Good News The Media Won’t Tell You About

In conclusion that’s good news for nomads.

Maybe not so much for everyone else back in the world.

Media Back To Its Old Tricks

Firstly the media is back to its old tricks. They are showing a shocking level of ignorance when it comes to political polls. Learn in Media-Distorts-Poll-Results-Again-Bob Davis Podcast 932.

Predicting The Future. Again.

Secondly we should be suspicious of a media with a penchant for predicting the future.

No Partisan Coverage of Election 2020 Here

More importantly I have avoided partisan criticism of the president. In addition I have refused to engage in the same kind of misinformation when it comes to potential presidential candidates. Now you understand why.

No Partisan Issue Advocacy Here Either

Moreover I refuse to advocate for partisan issues or tell listeners and subscribers what to think.

Political Polling Coverage

Therefore I am starting my political coverage of presidential polling for 2020.

State By State Reports

To clarify from time to time I will do some podcasts discussing recent polling on a state by state basis.

Ignorant Story Lines

Truth is, the story lines being created now may or may not be the eventual result. I’ll explain why in Media-Distorts-Poll-Results-Again-Bob Davis Podcast 932.

All About The Electoral Vote

Even more we choose our presidents through the electoral college. We do not vote directly for the office of president in the United States.This reality forces presidential campaigns to develop electoral strategies.

Divided? Really?

Above all we keep hearing how the United States has become a ‘divided’ country. It’s the Blue States against the Red States.

County By County Vote Totals

But county by county vote totals show the votes are often ‘blue’ or ‘red’ by pluralities, not majorities.

National Presidential Polls Are Useless

Finally citing national popularity polls, presidential job approval polls, or even national political preference is little more than a waste of time.

Another Close Contest, So Far…

In conclusion, the 2020 presidential race at this time looks like another close contest. Unless that reality changes it’s going to come down to some key states.

Still Not A Lot Of Polling Data For Battleground States

Meanwhile polling data is not available for all the so called battleground states.

Fantasy Reporting

In short don’t believe everything you hear.

(Editor’s Note: I refer to both candidates running as ‘presidents’. Obviously I meant President Trump and former Vice President Biden. In addition at the time of recording of this podcast¬† results of the Iowa US Senate Primary had not been released. Due to this, no polls were available on the race. The primary was held on June 2nd, 2020. I said no democrat had yet been selected in the Iowa US Senate Race, which includes Senator Joni Ernst as the republican incumbent. This was true at the time. Now Ernst has a democratic opponent. For the results go here.)

Toxic

I don’t think it matters where you come down on the process of impeaching Donald Trump. What’s especially relevant is the fact that the media has been praying for this. Due to this, politics will only continue to permeate our culture. Has it reached terminal toxicity? One can only hope. Learn more in Trump-Democrats-Ruin-Thanksgiving-Christmas-Bob Davis Podcast 865.

Live From My Garage

I did not want to do an overtly political podcast about this nonsense in Washington. So come with me to run some errands and we’ll talk about it, as we go live from my two garages.

High Crimes Expertise

Even more I wasn’t on the call with the President of the Ukraine, so I don’t know what was said. Sure I can read the so called ‘transcript’ but I’m not an expert when it comes to high crimes. What about you?

Run Its Course

Consequently whether you see what is going on now in Washington as the Democratic Campaign for the Presidency or a Witch Hunt, this thing has to run its course. Unfortunately.

Not Going Away

Certainly this whole thing isn’t going away anytime soon. Find out why in Trump-Democrats-Ruin-Thanksgiving-Christmas-Bob Davis Podcast 865

Ruining Christmas and Thanksgiving

Therefore prepare to have your crazy uncle Joe and your Brother In Law ruin Thanksgiving and Christmas this year.

Latin America Style Corruption

As far as I am concerned and above all, I have come to the conclusion that the United States Government is pretty well shot through with corruption, legal and illegal.

For Some Time

Furthermore I can make the case this has been true for some time.

Government Too Powerful

It’s all due to the growth of government power we the people have allowed.

Shut Down Santa and Mrs Claus?

Who wants to shut down Santa Claus?

Perfumed Princes In Washington DC

Consequently I won’t be breathlessly relating the latest development in the impeachment saga, attacking or defending the president or any of these other perfumed princes and princesses in the capitol.

Cancer

Finally my biggest concern is how these kinds of issues spread to our screens like a cancer.

Battlegrounds

My own analysis of the president’s current approval ratings in battleground states is key.

All Bets Are Off

The democrats may have had the president in 2020 in those battlegrounds. Too bad for them. Now all bets are off.

Gossip Is News

Maybe someday the American People will turn away from this constant barrage of political gossip. Don’t hold your breath, though.
