Pontification on Truths, Falsehoods, and Tinfoil Hats

Wherein Rob subjects new friends to the show by way of an interesting discussion with ArmyManJ, MasterS and TheBigG, which starts with conspiracy theories, which start with deficits and ends with living inside chain link fence, and fascism, and includes a mention of the classic Red Dawn [and whoa, they did a remake, must see!!],  and the tendency for history to repeat itself, and destroying stuff, and gun registration, and a really bad idea to get around it, and the requirement to train, and the apparently false notion that hammers are used more than pistols to kill people, and government intervention and control, and a near accurate Thomas Jefferson quote, and brainwashing training the next generation, and the notion that we can’t imagine how bad the trouble that we are in really is, and an allusion to The Front Men, and desensitization, and the thin blue line including the notion that power needs to sit in a tightly confined, not-corrupted space, and the likelihood of a military coup in the USA, and a sheriff who stated he would refuse to enforce new gun control laws and shifting baselines, and how to boil a frog, and the recent government shutdown and what Bill Whittle said about it, and the apparently false rumor that the oceans were closed, (which based on truth and reality shows, ha, and isn’t entirely inaccurate), and resourcefulness and community (love this part), and prepping and preppers.

[A new record for hyperlinks in the show notes!]

[Later a great point was made, the first step in preparing for the worst is getting your head around the fact that a bad thing could happen, and being prepared mentally to begin dealing with it. Would you be one of the ones that wastes time coming to terms with a disaster, or the far fewer that can quickly cope with the impact and start moving?]

Also that same day, we talked about 3D printers and guns. Click, Print, Gun looks a good view.

TPIDNTY: How Did We Do?

Rob reports what happened that caused him to try a little pledge drive effort, and how it went down, and what it did, and celebrating what does happen and not looking at what didn’t, and not being disappointed, and uncertainty about what’s the next best step, and the desire to not say “I as your agent will”, and a sincere request for more prayer, and laments not having simple tools at his disposal, and shares how the seasons change, and speak to labels and such, and my situation, and being bored, and figuring out why, and a tough realization, and sharing a part of somebody else’s story who won’t likely ever hear this, and being brought to our knees by our circumstances, and exhaustion, and why the airwaves might go silent soon, and includes Collide by Bebo Norman, which I think I have figured out what he is talking about in, and reports Krazy Cross’s great attitude and blessing to me, and a big thank you to those that got involved in making the pledge drive an unqualified success.

Stand Up was the song used in the pledge drive, shared with permission.

No Time To Get It Wrong

Bible verse of the day is Romans 13:8.

Wherein Rob cites the wrong number for the verse he reads, and wonders if NPR/OPB isn’t more interesting, and shares that he’s now a supporting member and speculates the day will never come where RRR has a pledge drive (ha), and passes on their original reporting that houses are being built larger so more people can live in them, and speaks of car maintenance, and observes there’s a lot of action on my wall, and laments how expensive it is to keep a car on the road, and the difficulty of finding a great mechanic, and the idiot light and what it means, and the next thing that must be done, and references The Musician, and includes Waitin’ For The Bus/Jesus Just Left Chicago by ZZ Top, and welcomes The Teacher back from vacation, and relates the setback to the Bering Sea crab fleet and what it means to Christmas in Japan, and states the government shutdown has had no discernible effect to my life, and how weird it is to consider reality show stars as friends, and alludes to a tradition in Mexico of having a lot of friends, and notices there’s a lot of The Man in this episode, and missing the a vlog, and my secret new domain name, and being responsible for everything I say always considering _you_ and how you’ll like what I post, and touches on an idea for the sister episode (which was forgotten, pretty sure, can’t even say this morning what the great thing was grr), and asks if you’ve had any close calls, and wishes there was some feedback to respond to.

No Time To Get It Wrong

[What’s up with the RIAA? I’m finding all kinds of good music on YouTube that should be taken down, would have been the last time I looked awhile ago… anyway enjoy the samples!]

TPIDNTY: Everyone Would Do It

Wherein Rob explains why it’s not easy (and thus the title of this one makes sense?), and shares a clear understanding that I should not stand in the middle, explains a little about the situation and trying to help Krazy Cross get his album Rest Stop Songs into more people’s hands, and teases a video I can’t publish just now, asks for your prayer about this, and demonstrates another thing that’s harder than it should be (so out of practice, but I’ll be smoother next time I hope).

No Time At All

Bible verse of the day is Ephesians 3:20 (NLT)

Wherein Rob is rusty but presses on anyway and references what you’re not hearing in today’s ep and wants to try to include some slow baked BBQ but instead eats a donut and tries to not talk with his mouth full too much, and razzes KMarie about NZ breakfast choices, and celebrates getting the basket home and the eggs carefully unpacked, then explains why he’s running behind, and laments the lost thermos still missing, and wonders how _you_ are doing, and explains a little about why he’s getting up early lately, which has no stink of desperation, and explains one key aspect of making a message mean something to somebody, and shout out to you as I wonder how you’re doing, and then goes on to talk about great pictures (almost typed gray pictures, check it out), and references stock art, and adds The Builder to the list of people possibly listening to my little show, and almost doesn’t remember what was happening with the stream of consciousness soliloquy from minute to minute, and references the very early days of podcasting, then takes a brief stop (which BTW featured an excellent, well-timed phone call), and then records the second half with remarkably more road noise (makes sense given the greatly increased speed, the first part was county highway 55 and the second freeway closer to 70) and states the government shutdown has ended [but it hasn’t] and then fails in abject fashion with a quote I should have pulled over and written down (thanks Beavis) and laments the sad state of my current tech.

[How have I never chosen Eph 3:20 before, hard to Imagine!!]

Music is “Bingo in the Country” by Happy Elf published by WM Recordings [My how things change!! gotta get back to fma.org whoot!]

[Double MP3 compression FTL, the music sounds bloody awful, I don’t know why I didn’t look a bit harder for the good soundtracks, they are _right here_ but too late]
