Winds-Of-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 1043

Winds Of Change

Firstly Winds Of Change are blowing. And suddenly media has exploded with prophecy and prediction. I won’t do that. Learn why in Winds-Of-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 1043.

Cycles

Secondly many cycles are ending all at once.

Tough Three Years

Certainly we have run the gamut in the last three years.

But more is to come.

Storm Of Change

Most importantly rather than tell subscribers and listeners what to think and what to do in Winds-Of-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 1043 I’ll talk about the fact that we’re in the middle of a storm of change.

No Predictions

Above all I won’t make predictions.

I won’t tell you what I think this leader should do.

Even more whether I think another leader is off his or her rocker.

Listen Dream Think

However if you’re back in the world this podcast is an opportunity to listen, dream and think.

Fear and Uncertainty Back Home

Further it’s an opportunity to avoid the swirl of fear and uncertainty that characterizes the world of bricks and sticks.

Nomads and Crisis

Therefore let’s spend some time talking about how we nomads deal with these kinds of crisis.

Time Lines

For example our time lines are different.

Thinking It Through

That is to say we have more time to process these things.

To think it through.

Called To Be Here

In the same vein I have talked to many nomads who feel they were called to be out here at this time.

Certainly they don’t always know why.

Just that they are here.

Uncertainty

Whether it is the Ukraine, The Pandemic, Inflation or economic uncertainty it impacts nomads differently.

Wonder and Worry

In short when I look up into the stars late at night by the fire I too wonder and worry about the future.

No Homework

On the other hand with so many cycles bisecting the present time I am not sure what can be ‘done’ about it.

And I refrain from doing homework for people.

No Telling You What To Think

Or telling them what to think.

Winds Of Change Blowing Hard

In conclusion the winds of change have been blowing pretty hard for the last three years or more.

Impacts

In addition even nomads may see impacts in terms of rigs and fuel.

Let’s Start Building The Future

Finally future developments depend on a number of technology breakthroughs underway as we speak.

To sum up, let’s get on with it.

Buddy-Holly-West-Texas-History-Bob Davis Podcast 994

West Texas Buddy Holly History

Firstly there’s a lot of history in West Texas including Lubbock’s Buddy Holly Center. Nomad friend Don Anger joins me to talk about it all in Buddy-Holly-West-Texas-History-Bob Davis Podcast 994.

Still Heading West

I am certainly continuing my nomad travels, heading west.

West Texas

And there is no more West than West Texas.

Firstly as I move west the roadside markers slowly change from historic periods.

Secondly the wind.

Boom and Bust

In addition the boom and bust nature of Texas. Especially West Texas.

Therefore you come across whole towns that have been abandoned over the years.

Those Highways

Even more highways that seem to go on forever.

Music and History Collide

On the other hand Don is a music guy.

As a result Buddy-Holly-West-Texas-History-Bob Davis Podcast 994 is a nice balance between the two.

Unique Nature Of Texas

Most importantly I think we both realize the unique nature of an amazing place called Texas.

Influence Of Lubbock

In conclusion how interesting it is that someone who had so much influence hails from Lubbock Texas.

Twentieth Century Experience

To clarify this town in West Texas exemplifies the twentieth century experience in the west.

Ranching Oil Business

That is to say ranching, oil, rail roads, cowboys and grassroots business people.

Buddy Holly

Finally from road side markers and ghost towns to Buddy Holly.

A lot worth talking about.

There’s a Feeling You Get

Most importantly there’s a feeling you get out here. For example the sky. Wind. Heat.

In short something about this place calms me down.

All About Distance

Could be the distance from one destination to another. Might be the seemingly lonely places you pass through.

But you’ll never forget West Texas.

War-AntiWar-Con-Job-Bob Davis Podcast 891

A Drone Strike Blows Up Internet…And A General

First of all after the US killed an Iranian General with a drone strike, social media went nuts. In addition all the other media went nuts. I think it’s time we sorted it all out in War-AntiWar-Con-Job-Bob Davis Podcast 891.

War-Anti-War Con Job

Furthermore when everyone wants to use the ‘facts’ they agree with and repeat arguments they hear on cable TV news it’s nothing but a war versus anti war con job.

Things Could Go Either Way

Certainly the United States is in a serious situation when it comes to Iran. In the wake of the airstrike things could go either way.

Real News Too Confusing and Complicated

Unfortunately no one was thinking about foreign policy when they voted in 2016. Moreover most Americans consider foreign affairs to be too confusing and difficult to think about.

Real World Too Complicated?

Above all when it comes to the US role in the rest of the world every action has a reaction. The hard part is managing reactions going forward.

You Want A Democracy? Grow Up!

Most noteworthy is the question of exactly what Americans want when it comes to foreign dealings. Sorry but it’s not as easy as a meme or a four line capital letters post on social media. More on that in War-AntiWar-Con-Job-Bob Davis Podcast 891.

Shouting Matches Are Not News

Even more these things aren’t solved with split screen debates on television where guests are encouraged to get into shouting matches. Meanwhile we show pictures of planes and ships.

Explaining The Issue

Finally it’s time to attempt to explain the contours of this story. In contrast to the magpies on the line, I am not going to tell listeners and subscribers what to think or what to do. I will not do your homework for you.

Try Listening First

If we really want to figure this out then different points of view need to be heard.
