A Republican Form of Government

We have our definition of “republic,”
but what if that wasn’t necessarily the definition the Framers had?



A few years ago there was a wonderful show on TV, “How the States Got Their Shapes.” Host Brian Unger takes you around the country and looks at…. well… how the states got their shapes. It’s all based on the book of the same name (HERE). For what it’s worth, the show is better than the book, but the information is the same.

At any rate, why does any of that matter?

Yesterday, the California Supreme Court ruled that the much heralded and discussed Prop 9, a vote by the people on whether or not to separate California into three States, should be removed from the ballot because it “might” violate the States Constitution.

Now… whether it does or not we have to ask some questions about this whole deal.

Plausibly live, It’s Constitution Thursday on The Dave Bowman Show!

Befuddled Virtue Signaling

“The entire point of the entire Russia thing is simply Virtue Signaling.

“What was so bad about Monday’s press conference?” A very special texter wanted to know. and in a voice Mail, Busters wonders “HOW” the Russians influenced the election?  Read the rest of this entry

Register Today and Save!!!



Dave’s medical appointment was pretty typical of the way we do medical care these days. Thank goodness you can “Register Today and Save!!!!”

This mornings press conference with Trump and Putin was less press conference than it was political theatre, to be viewed solely through the lens of your own political viewpoint rather than anything that was or was not actually said…

PopScience has a great article dealing with how YOU should be responsible for YOUR own safety on the interwebs since the government won’t do it for you (alas, in their view). Ultimately, it should cause us to think about the way that our government works today. How is it that the FCC, and executive department, can make “rules” that have not been debated or passed by Congress?
