There Goes Your Tax Cut

How’s the price of gas these days? How’s the price of diesel? We pay nearly 3 dollars a gallon or more at the pump. Especially for diesel. Republicans always talk about lower taxes. Not Trump. The president wants at least a 15 cent per gallon increase in the federal gas tax. Find out why in Gas-Taxes-Republican-Hypocrisy-Bob Davis Podcast 833.

What The Lord Giveth, He Taketh Away

Most noteworthy is the existing 18 cent federal tax on gas and almost 25 cents a gallon for diesel. Even more, most state lawmakers want increases in their state gas taxes.

Drunken Sailors Fighting on The Dance Floor

Sure they take in a lot of money in Washington and the state capitol. In contrast states and the federal government actually spend piles of money. Not to mention your local town or city. For information about that, click here.

Bonding Bonding Bonding

I live in Minnesota. They’re not supposed to, but here politicians throw in bonding packages in just about every legislative session.

You Can’t Get There From Anywhere During ‘Construction Season’

The result? Bonding on bonding. Some projects fully funded, haven’t even been started. Even more, there’s so much construction people are tearing their hair out trying to get to work.

Gas Taxes – Not Just For Highways Anymore

Stadiums. Light Rail. Train Stations. Bus Lanes. Bike Trails. Subsidized bike rentals. Running paths. Signs. Talking Traffic Lights. Roundabouts. Federally compliant intersections and curbs. Sometimes projects finished a couple of years ago are torn up and redone. Notice there are no highways or roads in that list. We still need more money for all those highway projects too. Add Trump’s airports and bridges and it means tax increases. Corporations aren’t going to pay for it.

Five Floors of 1800 Dollar A Month Rentals and a Starbucks On Every Corner

Moreover subsidies for ‘affordable’ housing projects which are really five story condos and 1800 dollar a month rentals with a Starbucks on the ground floor everywhere. Funding for these projects are cobbled together from Federal Transit Authority money.

Republicans Love Lower Taxes, More Spending and Ballooning Deficits

Finally, as republicans ballyhoo their 2017 tax cut and campaign on lower taxes, they keep spending. In Minnesota they passed a five hundred million dollar bonding bill and a 48 billion dollar budget last week and they think they did a great job. This year the federal budget is 4.4 trillion. That’s a trillion more than Barack Obama’s average. The US Budget Deficit this year will be more than a trillion dollars. Our total debt is estimated at 22 trillion.

Buddy Can You Spare 67 Thousand Dollars?

The raw dollar amounts these governments take in will make you sick. Especially relevant is the fact that every American is on the hook for 67 thousand dollars in federal debt alone, and counting. Because despite the revenue, they keep spending more and more, whether they have a D or an R in front of their name. Sooner or later the piper has to be paid. Spending, whether it comes from tax collections or bonds, always ends up as a tax.

The Man Who Lost Billions Wants You To Pay For … Another New Airport

And here comes the man who built skyscrapers and lost billions doing it, Donald Trump. He wants to put his name on airports, subways and bridges we don’t need, and make us pay for it.

What would Ben Franklin say to the woman about our government today?

“It’s a Hypo-cracy Madam. If you can keep it”.

Why would you want to?

Fishing Expedition Ends-Bob Davis Podcast 816

The Northwest Sportsman’s show is the backdrop for breaking news! Mueller’s big fishing expedition is over. We’ll talk about it in Fishing Expedition Ends-Bob Davis Podcast 816.

Attorney General’s Report of A Report

While the media melts down and the rest of the world yells at each other about the ‘details’ of four pages from the Attorney General. it’s time to vent.

A Political Minority Monopolizes Our Time For Nothing

These days it sure seems like we are at the mercy of political types. People who spend all day clicking on, watching and listening to any show doling out details Washington’s latest intrigue.

Real People Looking At Boats Seems Like A Good Idea

What a breath of fresh air to join Minnesotans at the Sportsman’s show. Fishing rods and reels. Rifle scopes. Resorts. Meat smokers and boats. Lots of boats. A rite of spring in these parts.

No CNN MSNBC or Fox Equals Bliss

Moreover not a single TV in the place tuned to CNN or Fox, or MSNBC and their incessant coverage of every scratch of Robert Mueller’s ass and Donald Trump’s anguished tweets in response. Or the bleating of the disappointed democrats. Or the “I told you so’s” from republicans.

All The Predictions Turn Out To Be Wrong

Especially relevant is our need to be delivered from the heroes of political news addicts, and their constant uninformed predictions.

Trump’s Revenge

Finally for now, President Trump can take a well deserved victory lap in the form of tweets and mass emails, or the next hour long press conference, In addition his supporters deserve a moment of bliss as for once their sworn enemies are left reaching or speechless.

Time For All The Politicians And Political Addicts To STFU

In conclusion it seems to me that our biggest problem is our fixation on the intrigues of the federal government in Washington, and our worthless politicians in state capitols, county commissioner offices and city hall.

Fishing Anyone?

Suddenly going fishing sounds like a pretty good idea.

United States-Emergency-Spectacle-Bob Davis Podcast 807

I am so sick of the media speculating on what’s ‘about’ to happen and predicting the future these days. So when something actually happens it’s worth talking about. Learn more in United States-Emergency-Spectacle-Bob Davis Podcast 807.

Trump Loves Bombshells and So Does The Media

Moreover when it’s a bombshell that triggers uproar from all sides of the so called political spectrum, it’s news.

All About Trump

The president has been talking about declaring an emergency for weeks. In addition there have been rumors his unhappiness with a legislative compromise that netted only about one fifth of what he wanted for his ‘big beautiful wall’ on the southern US border. It’s been a spectacle. It’s about to become a most noteworthy example of a political dumpster fire.

Can He Really Do That?

Especially relevant is the question of whether the president can actually declare an emergency to build a border wall. Obviously the Administration thinks so. There are currently thirty states of emergency already declared by presidents going back to Jimmy Carter. This will be number 31. We’ll talk about in United States-Emergency-Spectacle-Bob Davis Podcast 807.

All About The Approval Rating

There will be court challenges and lots of and lots of news coverage. Here’s the thing. Immigration and the border wall is a good issue for the president. Already some polls have his approval rating over fifty percent. As to whether a wall will actually work? I guess that remains to be seen.

Big Spending Big Government Republicans

Lost in the shuffle is a new budget bill that substantially increases federal spending. With the national debt at 22 trillion and more than 100 percent of the nation’s GDP you could call Trump President Donald Baines Nixon. With this spending bill you could call him Donald Barack Trump. (Editor’s Note: I refer to the debt of the US as the Budget Deficit which is probably somewhere around half a trillion. The 22 trillion dollar figure is in actuality the total debt of the US, currently at about 105 percent of the country’s GDP).

So Long Suckas

Suddenly the guy many republicans thought was ‘conservative’ is taking fire from the right as well as the left.
