  • Rant: Misunderstanding Inflation

    10:21
    Donovan rants about how people b***h and complain about the higher prices of things while not realizing how inflation works in our economy. Plus, the blame game of “it was better under this president than it is under this other president” is complete crap; presidents typically have very little sway over the economy they preside over.

  • Hot Takes: Sidney Powell's Guilty Plea, J.K. Rowling's Stance, Movie Projections, YouTube TV, Controversial Music, and Political Surprises

    29:19
     In this episode:  1. **Sidney Powell's Guilty Plea:** Donovan discusses former Trump attorney Sidney Powell's guilty plea in a Georgia election subversion case. The breach of election systems in Coffey County, Georgia hits close to home for Donovan, who resides in Georgia. Powell may receive a six-year probation sentence, which, if recommended, would keep her out of prison but involved in prosecuting other defendants.   2. **J.K. Rowling's Pronoun Stance:** Donovan delves into the controversial statement by J.K. Rowling regarding transgender pronouns. Rowling's preference for jail over using certain pronouns sparks discussion about nuanced perspectives on gender identity. Donovan emphasizes the importance of recognizing labels like "trans woman" and "trans man" and how the gender debate can lead to conflicts and cancel culture. The generational divide on this topic is explored.  3. **"The Marvels" Box Office Projection:** The episode covers the projected box office performance of the movie "The Marvels," with expectations set at $75 to $80 million. This projection is notably 50% lower than the opening of the first Captain Marvel movie, attributed to factors like a strike, campaign launch delays, and audience confusion about character connections. Brief mentions of other superhero movies like "Black Adam" and "The Flash" are included, along with Donovan's personal preferences.  4. **YouTube TV's Video Quality:** Criticism of YouTube TV offering 720p video quality akin to cable TV is addressed. While the article claims cable channels mainly broadcast in 720p, Donovan disputes this based on his experience. However, YouTube TV has taken steps to improve video quality, with investments in feeds and bit rate improvements. This benefits users with 4K-compatible devices, enabling higher quality content. Collaboration with partners is underway to bring 1080p HDR and 4K games.  5. **Jason Aldean's Controversial Song:** The controversy surrounding country singer Jason Aldean's song and its music video is explored. The video's setting at the site of a historical lynching and its controversial imagery have raised concerns. Aldean defends his work by explaining he's portraying real events, not endorsing them. The song's backlash and criticism, including Sheryl Crow's comments, are discussed. Aldean emphasizes the importance of speaking out against wrongdoing in the entertainment industry.  6. **Jim Jordan's Surprising Move:** The episode ends with a discussion of Representative Jim Jordan's surprising decision to back a plan empowering interim Speaker Patrick McHenry temporarily. This comes after Jordan's failed attempts to become Speaker of the House. While Jordan will continue his run for Speaker, he supports McHenry to ensure legislative business amid a government shutdown and ongoing conflicts. The potential consequences if Jordan becomes Speaker, especially in the context of a potential Trump re-election in 2024, are highlighted.  7. ** Thoughts on the Israel - Hamas conflict---VM/Text Line: 762-325-1313Email: show@donovanadkisson.comPodcast theme music by Transistor.fm.

  • Texas' Controversial Anti-Abortion Strategy: Blocking Roads to Reproductive Rights

    14:29
    In this episode of the Donovan Adkisson Show, Donovan discusses a concerning anti-abortion strategy emerging in conservative cities and counties in Texas. This strategy comes in response to the frustration of many conservatives after the overturning of Roe v. Wade. The jurisdictions in question are passing ordinances that make it illegal to transport anyone for an abortion using local roads within city or county limits. These ordinances also empower private citizens to sue individuals or organizations they suspect of violating the law. The ultimate goal is to block major highways and prevent pregnant women from leaving Texas to access abortion services. This strategy has already been implemented in two counties and two cities, with the potential for more to follow suit.Donovan expresses disbelief at this strategy, emphasizing that it could make it illegal for individuals to use roads that are funded by taxpayers. The state cannot directly enforce these ordinances, making it even more challenging to address their legality. Some local officials in conservative areas are resisting these measures, expressing concerns about their legality and potential harm to their communities. This pushback reveals a growing tension among anti-abortion advocates regarding the extent to which they can restrict abortion.Donovan provides background information about Mark Lee Dickson, an anti-abortion activist leading this effort. Dickson campaigns for cities to ban abortion through local "sanctuary city" ordinances and has no personal experience with abortion or sexual intercourse. He is known for his staunch support of Donald Trump and his belief that Trump won the 2020 election. Dickson considers all abortions to be murder with no exceptions.The episode concludes with a call to action, highlighting the importance of paying attention to local elections as these anti-abortion laws have found success at the local level. Donovan emphasizes the importance of maintaining the choice for all women and encourages listeners to share their thoughts on the matter.To join the conversation or share personal experiences, listeners are encouraged to leave a voicemail at 762-325-1313 or email the show at show@donovanadkisson.com.Show notes generated from the transcript of the episode using ChatGPT.LinksTexas highways targeted by antiabortion activists seeking to block interstate travel - The Washington PostMark Lee Dickson - Wikipedia---VM/Text Line: 762-325-1313Email: show@donovanadkisson.comPodcast theme music by Transistor.fm.
