Bruce Sidlinger 

Impulse buying a hot air ballon because he loves “doing stuff in the air”! Plus three wheelers, lawn darts, basket weaving (not underwater but), ballon ratings vs. flying a plane, “unplanned landings” and more than you’ll ever need to know about hot air ballon! Plus apprenticeships and important skill sets that our country needs.

Plus a discussion on "pure classical economics", think Adam far we’ve strayed to a control economy. 

Borrowing money to go to college to be a “ceramicist”  in “mythical free market America” would not be a good credit risk. But in America today, hey here’s your $200,000 to be a professional student!

And there's always the post office and who didn't deliver mail for 40 days

November 18, 2020

0:00-17:30 Hey Newsom, come take my turkey leg!

Elisha could not imagine a world like we have in 2020 when he got heavily involved in politics in 2007.

The bubble economy, real estate, stocks, bitcoin, and more. The eminent economic crash that’s been coming for decades?
