Reaching The Limits Of Government Power

First of all this is a developing story. Even so, seems like people of all political stripes have about had it with the government. We’ll talk about it in Reaching-Limits-Of-Government-Power-Bob Davis Podcast 930.

Developing Story

Especially relevant? We don’t know all the details in the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis Police.

Unprecedented Reaction

Even more riots are breaking out in the vicinity of the incident and across the metro. This has never happened before in Minneapolis and Saint Paul.

What’s The Pattern?

I see a pattern here. However I’m not sure others will appreciate it.

Feeling Our Fellow Citizens’ Pain

Above all some also will not appreciate the pain of the community where George Lloyd died recently.

Lock Down Protests

On the other hand protests against lock downs are still fresh, although these were orderly by comparison.

Tyranny?

In Minnesota residents of communities far from Minneapolis took to the streets to protest what they called tyranny.

Trump’s Rule By Fiat

Finally the president of the United States issued yet another executive order limiting 1st amendment rights for the big social media companies. Learn more in Reaching-Limits-Of-Government-Power-Bob Davis Podcast 930.

All In One Basket

Most importantly some will not agree with me putting all government over reach into one basket. But I think it works for this podcast. Whether it’s police, presidents, governors or mayors, people have about had it.

Incompetency, Arrogance and Danger Of Government Abuse Of Power

To clarify, I do it to draw attention to the increasing incompetency and arrogance of all our governments. It’s certainly been a theme in these podcasts.

No One Likes It

In conclusion, we’re all suffering.

No one likes shut downs.

We all feel it when any citizens are mistreated.

Self Inflicted Economic Catastrophe

Further, the whole country is suffering from a self inflicted economic catastrophe.

Riot and Carrying AR-15’s

In addition we can argue about whether people should riot, or carry AR-15’s to a protest at the capitol.

What’s undeniable? Apparently a lot of people are furious at the government. They’ve definitely got their reasons.

Word to the Wise

Certainly so called elected representatives and public servants better figure it out. And soon.

First Night at EAA. Sunday nights are load in nights for exhibitors, fly-ins, and media at the EAA AirVenture Air Show at Osh Kosh, Wisconsin. I always celebrate with a regular podcast, live from just under the control tower as we start a new week, on the First Night at EAA. It’s late. Everyone is asleep, but I am getting in the last few thoughts on the coming show, and new developments in the political world this weekend. Having just come from the RNC at Cleveland and witnessing the divisions in the Republican party firsthand, it’s a little weird to see the same kinds of fissures developing with the democrats at Philadelphia with the specter of the democrat establishment killing the grassroots too. Throughout this hot and stormy Sunday I’ve been thinking about a recent email exchange with a Trump supporter that says so much about American politics today. A gentleman who normally sends me great jokes via email suddenly swerved into politics exhorting me and a few score others on his email list to ‘vote Trump’. Why? Because Trump is going to get rid of NAFTA and the TPP and bring all the jobs back to the United States. I decided to press him to find out exactly why he thinks what he thinks and why he would take the unusual step of pushing his friends to vote Trump. It took several emails to learn he just ‘feels’ Trump is the best guy, Trump is like Lincoln, Trump knows what to do and he’ll do it, and don’t make me explain this stuff, google it. Then he asks me what I think of the questions I asked him! That serves as a debate in the land of Trump. A place where everyone gets what he wants, when he wants it, because Trump said so. A place where one bright morning a box will arrive from China and everyone will open it up and find a note that reads, “Sorry about taking your job at the bucket factory way back in 1997 but we needed it. Here it is back, slightly used but we hope you’ll forgive us”. There it is people. Donald J. Trump is going to get Uncle Joe his job back at Bethlehem Steel so he and Martha can buy back the 1993 Buick Regal, which the GM plant in Flint will be making again thanks to old ‘I’ll make the trains run on time’ Trump. I realized, while ordering coffee at the concessions stand next to the beautiful B-25 out here on the airfield, that there are a lot of 50+ children out there. Thinking is just too hard. Researching facts takes too much time. Actually learning the contours of an issue is a job no one wants. Lots of final thoughts — for the time being — on the convention, the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz as the DNC chair, and the impending Trump presidency. Or not. Thank God I can talk about airplanes for the next few days! Sponsored by Hydrus Performance.

RNC Dies At Cleveland? Day One of the Republican National Convention. While the mainstream media covers the convention from inside, The Bob Davis Podcasts is on the streets outside Quicken Arena. Some insiders would agree with the headline; RNC Dies At Cleveland. Some are actually saying that a rules fight that resulted in a few walkouts signals the end of the grassroots movement in republican politics, and certainly the end of something once known as a ‘principled’ conservative. While pundits point to a platform they say is the most conservative in history they ignore rule changes that give the RNC complete control over future conventions. The takeaway? No more Ron Paul insurgencies and no more Ted Cruz and evangelist grassroots movements. While the chance always existed for the Republican Establishment to join forces with the grassroots movements to ‘Dump Trump’, instead the establishment joined forces with the Trump campaign. In the end, the grassroots are out. Permanently. As some republicans – including various state party officials – cracked under the pressure of hard ball politics, it’s the same old story with republicans. Why rock the boat? Why make a spectacle of yourself and your state for the media? While there’s talk of a walkout, with each passing moment, the majority of the GOP, passive to the core, will go along to get along. Some see this outcome as necessary to unify the party for victory. Others see it as the death of the grassroots movement in republican politics, and the republican party. Outside the exclusion zone around the convention venue, delegates and politicos taking a break mixed with Cleveland’s downtown workers, and street people milling around bars and restaurants. It was a street fair featuring network TV studios and bloviating rather than kielbasa. Hit the streets with the Bob Davis Podcasts, starting with a woman who lives on the streets giving her analysis of the political situation, moving onto a protest, plus Blaze Correspondent Mike Opelka and more.
