Whither Almonds?

2015-04-07 :: dave@thedavebowmanshow.com
Length: 1s

The assault on Farming has begun in earnest as the definition of what is and what is not "food" and what therefore should or should not get water is now embedded in the headlines and questions. A reporter asks Governor Brown about the 2% of GDP that framing represents for the State of California and whether or not the use of water justifies that low of a GDP output. The Governor responds with a waffle about jobs instead of setting her straight. The water Wars in California are on. Led by the Media, the target is the Central Valley and Almonds. After all, if just 2% is using 80% of the water, why do we "need" it? Senator Rand Paul announces that he is now in the running against Senator Ted Cruz and Hispanic Governor Jeb Bush for President in 2016. …

The Honor System

2015-04-06 :: dave@thedavebowmanshow.com
Length: 1s

An Easter Egg hunt to honor Jesus goes predictably awry when nobody involved understands how “the honor system” actually works. All that money may not really solve the problem that Memories Pizza has, which is, of course, that they committed a thought crime which the government has already begun turning into a hate crime. And believe you me, that will NOT go unpunished… or un-fined, if you get my drift. Victor Davis Hanson reminds us of how this drought went from a naturally occurring weather pattern to a political nightmare, but he still doesn’t make it rain. The Washington Post accuses Republicans of mounting an “insurrection” against the “legitimate Constitutional Authority” of the President. Seriously. And Kentucky loses, which means Dave can finally watch the NCAA Tournament, but he won’t because… BASEBALL IS BACK!…

Length: 1s

It is Erev Pesach, and Dave is watching "The Ten Commandments." Governor Brown has ordered a MANDATORY 25% cut in water use in the entire state of California. And he means it this time! The President holds a presser to announce that there is no deal with Iran, and anybody who says that there is no deal with Iran had better shut their mouths because he's the CinC and he has no higher duty than to protect us from Mad Mullahs with nuclear weapons.

The (Very) Liberal History of the Indiana RFRA

2015-04-02 :: dave@thedavebowmanshow.com
Length: 44s

In Indiana, controversy reigns over the State's Religious Freedom Restoration Act, with accusations flying that it will allow rampant discrimination against gay people. So why did Indiana feel the need to pass such a law in the first place? what was it that compelled a Democrat controlled Congress to pass the first Religious Freedom Restoration Act by a unanimous vote in the house and a 97-3 vote in the Senate before being signed by President Bill Clinton? And if the nations liberals saw good in the Religious Freedom Restoration Act , what is it about Indiana's version that has them so worked up? In this episode we take a look at the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and how we got to the point where Indiana (and a lot of other States) felt compelled to pass such a law. The story begins in the migrant worker farmed fields of Texas in the 1930's, with a child born to migrant farm workers who will go on to fight for Civil rights and to freely express his religious beliefs...…

Length: 33s

The “Heckler’s Veto” comes back to life as High school Students in California are told not to wear Patriotic clothing on Cinco de Mayo. The Supreme Court declines to take up the case, but does that really mean that they agree with the 9th Circuit Courts ruling that the School did the right thing by banning the American flag T-Shirts? When it comes to people with jobs that involve the public safety, shouldn’t there be a better system for letting employers know if a person is mentally ill or a potential danger to the public?…

Indiana is the focal point for outrage for one simple reason, and it has little to do with religious freedom or gay discrimination. It has to do with Basketball. Dave found the BEST Mexican food in the State of California this weekend. In 1981 Rawhide went down from an assassin’s bullets, but he got back up. The GOP look s to having three 1st Term US Senators as 2016 Candidates for President. Wasn’t lack of experience a problem when it comes to picking a President? Today is Vietnam Veterans Day.

The Peruta decision from the 9th Circuit Court gets vacated and the whole thing heads back to the Court En Banc. What does that mean for the future of the ruling? Why did this happen? What happens next? The weird story of the German wings Co-Pilot continues to baffle and confuse. With seemingly no clear cut reason for his actions, one Male Rights Activists blogs in with what might be the dumbest reason on record. And yet, we’ve heard this same line reasoning before, from a mass killer, right here in California. Will Bowe Bergdahl face the death penalty? Not likely.…

Not Constitution Thursday

2015-03-26 :: dave@thedavebowmanshow.com
Length: 1s

It’s supposed to be Constitution Thursday, but a combination of factors, including noise, news and not liking the way it was going, mean that today is a regular episode of Plausibly Live. The Bowe Bergdhal charges mean that social media will be alive with posts about the Presidents deal to trade the Talibanis for a traitor. Just remember one simple and unarguable fact – you cannot charge Bergdahl with desertion if you do not have Bergdahl in custody. If you don’t have him, he goes down as a hero, and while there are always alternatives for getting him back, how many of those were realistic? The Co-Pilot of the Germanwings plane appears to have intentionally crashed the plane into the Alps. The Sodomite Suppression Act continues to generate response and discussion.…

In what some are calling a St. Patty’s Day miracle (which makes no sense given who is involved here), Benjamin Netanyahu and Likud not only win the elections in Israel, they win big.

At SXSW, Albert Gore, Jr., flies in on his private jet and immediately demands that everybody who disagrees with him be punished.

A Missouri Congressman has a new bill that will make a police Officer writing a ticket a Civil Rights violation. Yes, you read that correctly. A Civil rights violation. The state of Oregon is tired of people driving fewer miles and more fuel efficient cars, so they’ve decided to tax miles driven.

Municipal Revenuers

2015-03-10 :: dave@thedavebowmanshow.com
Length: 1s

The White House admits what Dave told you yesterday – that the White DID know about Hillary’s eMails years ago. That means that there issue a political reason why this is coming up now, which is the Iranian deal. In Ferguson, a report shows that the Police were used more for Revenue enhancement than for crime investigation and protection. That has Dave wondering how exactly Der Mayor plans to use the Modesto Police if he gets his new Magical Sales tax? The Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity has a long history, dating back to before the Civil war, so it’s no surprise that when a Fraternity was caught singing racist chants at the University of Oklahoma, it would be them. Some scientists think that other scientists were wrong when the second group of scientists said that there were no signals coming from Gliese 581d. The first group says that the signals may be evidence of intelligent life just twenty-two light years from Earth. Let’s go see! And while taxing bacon may seem like a great idea, it’s really just a typical tax, designed to deincentivize the eating of delicious (and not kosher) bacon. So why does the same website praise the “benefits of smoking?”…

UC-Irvine’s Student Government rescued the College from embarrassment, ridicule and backlash by vetoing the proposed Flag ban. But there is still a question about what they said in the Veto message. The Hillary eMails and the Menedez charges are less about somebody doing wrong than they are about President Obama’s Iran deal. Fifty years ago US Marines landed on the beaches outside of Danang, beginning the use of American ground troops in direct conflict in the Vietnam War. Let the hearings begin. Congress and the State Senate are asking questions about the recent refinery explosion and why gasoline prices are exploding as well.

Constitution Thursday - America on the Brink

2015-02-19 :: podcast@constitutionthursday.com
Length: 46s

By 1786, the United States were on the brink of utter destruction as a nation. The government had no way to raise money, no way to defend the borders and no way to protect individual rights. Armed insurrection was a real threat, and armed invaders stood ready to pounce on whatever was left. The Philadelphia Convention was more than just "fixing" the government. It was, quite literally, the last chance for the American dream. In the Preamble, we see how the Convention proposed to save the nation, what it would accomplish and it took a direct aim at those who would support the fatally flawed government already in place. (Editors note: We apologize for the excessive background noise. Ben was home from school today, and he was just wound up and wasn't going to calm down for anything.
