Hogg’s Mouth and Missiles



The protest march over the weekend has caused a good deal of chatter, most of it negative from the political right. Look, David Hogg’s parents ARE proud of him. Why are you surprised at how he behaves? Where do you think that he learned to talk that way?

If 69% of the people believe that Gun Laws need to be “tightened,” should we be trying to figure out why they think that way? Shouldn’t we be discussing the ideas and merits rather than the language of one un-cultured 17 year old?

While 60 Minutes and the press salivate over the titillating idea that Trump and Stormy watched a shark week documentary, the Houthi’s are launching MRBM missiles at Saudi Arabia.

In case you are saying “the Who?” the Houti’s are allied with the Iranians and so they are fighting ISIS and Sunni’s everywhere. And where did they get their hands on a bunch of Burkan-2 (SCUD) missiles? And how long will it be until the missiles are armed with more than TNT?

Mad Mike Hughes is a huckster who managed to convince a bunch of sincere flat-Earthers to give him enough money to launch himself 1875 feet into the air in a “attempt to prove” that the Earth is flat. By the by, it wasn’t his first launch, but the last time he did it he didn’t care about the shape of the planet.

Evil Knievel tried the same thing once upon a time. Frankly, Evil’s was far more entertaining…


About FTB1(SS)

Plausibly Live is the Official Podcast of The Dave Bowman Show. From 2007 to 2015, Dave was the host of KFIV’s “Afternoons Live” (Later “The Dave Bowman Show”) and the Central Valley’s go-to man for insightful and entertaining analysis of the day's news and events. In 2015, Dave left radio to raise his son and helped to launch the Podcast 99 network (www.podcast99.org), which features voices and topics from all around the area, the nation, and the world, on a variety of subjects. Re-launching his own show as a podcast, Dave continues his look at the world around him, now without the constraints of terrestrial radio, but still with his eclectic mix of history and common sense. The primary feature element of Plausibly Live is Constitution Thursday, which since 2010 has been a weekly look at the history and impact of the US Constitution. Dave is a US Navy Submariner, a radio talk show host, father, baseball fan, avid reader and a frustrated writer. He has a passion for books, theology, submarines, coffee, tequila, 1970’s music (especially funk!) and is a ToTaL Star Trek geek. Dave being promoted to FTB2(SS) in 1986. Dave being promoted to FTB2(SS) in 1986. He was born in Oklahoma, grew up in Colorado, graduated from Ogden High School (Class of ’81) in Ogden, UT, served for eleven years in the US Navy Submarine fleet, was a Naval Instructor and as a Ballistic Missile Fire Control Technician, he achieved the rank of FTB1(SS) through sorcery and favoritism, but would have been happy staying an FTB2(SS) for life. He was trained as a targeting specialist and Battle Stations Missile Fire Control Supervisor aboard USS Michigan SSBN-727(G) and was trained on two Fire Control Systems, the Mk 98 Mod 0 TRIDENT and the Mk 88 Mod 1 POSEIDON. Later he served as a part of the Fleet Combat Training Center Dam Neck Auxiliary Security Force, which sounds impressive but was really just bait for Seal Team 6 and any Iraqi terrorists who happened to land on the beach in Virginia. He later attended Seminary in Atlanta, GA, then served as a pastor for five years before realizing the massive error of his ways. He then worked in non-Profit management until 2006 when he was hired to do sports for a local talk radio show, eventually moving into the host position in September of 2007. In the fall of 2008, after years of questioning and study, Dave completed the process of conversion to Judaism. In 2009 Dave married Cami, and in 2010 they were blessed with their son, Benjamin, to go along with four daughters, one son-in-law and three grandchildren. In the summer of 2017, Dave and Cami relocated “back home” to Silverdale, WA, where Dave had been stationed when they first met in 1985. From September 2007 to January 2015 Dave was heard each weekday from 3pm to 6pm (Pacific) on Power Talk 1360AM & 1280 in Modesto & Stockton, CA. Today, you can hear his Podcast Show, Plausibly Live, on The Dave Bowman Show website or on The Podcast 99 Network Page.

  1. Parkland is not a slum area, so I’m wondering why that 17-year old isn’t cultured.
    I own guns, but agree that assault rifles are not necessary for civilians and the background checks should be tightened up. So what am I classified as? left? or right?
    Mad Mike just went and proved that PT Barnum was right – fools are born every minute!


  2. Why do you think cultured is limited to “not slum” areas? Culture is a matter of upbringing, not a matter of affluence.

    Not that he strikes me as uncultured in the few videos I just checked out. He rather resembles somebody who has had Precisely Fucking Enough and no longer cares what people think of him.

    As to why we’re not having a sober discussion on the merits? That would be a question to ask the gun nutters. Not that you’ll get a reasonable answer mind you, they have no interest in a sober discussion on the merits. Fanatics rarely do. That’s why they’re attacking and mocking the students. That’s why gun nutters invariably go off into arcane trivia about weapons classification to “prove” their opponents wrong. Etc… Etc…

    As happens all too often, the fanatics on both sides drive the discussion. Sane voices on the right and left are drowned out by the louder voices of the nutters and the gun grabbers. (Not helped by the fact that many are at least sympathetic with the extremists of their side and thus tend to spread their memes and propaganda.)
