    Is Talking About Race & Racism Preventing Healing In America?

    in Current Events

    Are we living in a post racial America? Some Americans believe that, yes, we are and that some individuals who seek attention continue to use race and racism as a means for getting it. While others believe that harmful systemic racism and subconscious bias persists and the only way to eliminate them for good is to shine a bright light on them. 


    In this Episode of Race Haven Scott Speed is joined by guests Denny Faircloth and Dr. Osvaldo Gaytan. Scott (African American from Philadelphia, PA) and Denny (European American from Augusta, Georgia) will dialogue about this topic from two very different perspectives. Dr. Osvaldo (Psychiatrist) will join them to provide the social behavioral context to this dialogue.

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE THURSDAY: THE ROAD TO HEAVEN OR THE HIGHWAY TO HELL?

    in Lifestyle

    FLORIDA IS UNDER A PUSH FOR OVERREACHING DEVELOPMENT NOT SEEN SINCE THE SALE OF SWAMP LAND AS HOMESITES IN THE EARLY 1920'S.  THE DRIVING FORCE IS GOVERNOR SCOTT AND HIS CRONY-CAPITALIST BUSINESS BUDDIES AND THEIR QUEST FOR EXCESS PROFITS ON THE BACKS OF THE GOOD CITIZENS AND HOME OWNERS. LOOK, WE GET IT. DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH WILL ALWAYS HAPPEN, BUT DO THEY HAVE TO HAPPEN AT THE TOTAL COST OF THE SWAMPS, SPRINGS AND THE TOTAL LIFESTYLE OF RURAL RESIDENTS?  NO, THEY DON'T BUT THE CURRENT PUSH MOVING INTO NORTH FLORIDA IF LEFT UNCHECKED WILL RESULT IN A MIAMI NORTH OR WORSE.  IF THAT HAPPENS, IT WON'T MATTER HOW MANY NEW RESIDENTS AND CORPORATIONS HE BRINGS TO THE STATE WHEN THE WELL RUNS DRY.  WE'LL ALL BE LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME.


    MATT SURRENCY, THE MAYOR OF THE SMALL CITY OF HAWTHORNE WILL BE MY GUEST AS WE TRY TO FIND A MIDDLE GROUND AND SOME COMMON SENSE SOLUTIONS ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE THURSDAY NIGHT AT 9.  THIS IS A PROBLEM NOT JUST IN FLORIDA BUT EVERYWHERE, SO WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US AS WE TRY TO TURN A WIN-LOSE INTO A WIN-WIN SITUATION.  HOPING TO KEEP YOU INFORMED OF WHAT IS GOING ON A REAL TOPSY-TURVY WORLD.

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE: IS THERE A REPUBLICAN WAR ON WOMEN?

    in Lifestyle

    FINALLY, NORTH FLORIDA WRITER IS BACK ON THE AIR WITH A PROGRAM WEDNESDAY NIGHT.  OUR UPDATED AUDIO SUPPORT SHOULD MAKE THE SHOW SO MUCH BETTER. WE'LL TALK ABOUT A TOPIC THAT GETS MUCH DISCUSSION BUT, AT LEAST IN THIS BROADCASTER'S OPINION, IS AS PHONY AS CAN BE BUT, OF COURSE, EACH OF US IS FREE TO DECIDE FOR OURSELVES.


    REMEMBER IN EARLY 2012 WHEN GEORGE STEPHANOPOULIS ASKED MITT ROMNEY IF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WANTED TO MAKE THE SALE OF CONTRACEPTIVES ILLEGAL?  AT THE TIME IT SEEMED TO BE VERY STRANGE TO INTERJECT THIS SUBJECT INTO A DEBATE OF SUBSTANCE, BUT LATER, AS WE REMEMBERED STEPHANOPOULIS' CLOSE TIES TO HILLARY CLINTON, IT MADE MORE SENSE.  AND AS WE'VE SEEN OVER TIME, HILLARY HAS COME TO THE FOREFRONT ON THIS PHONY ISSUE BY CLAIMING TO BE THE ONE CANDIDATE SUPPORTING WOMEN WITH A RECORD TO BACK IT UP.  AND SHE USED IT AGAINST DONALD TRUMP IN RECENT TIMES BUT, BINGO, THE TRUMPSTER THREW IT RIGHT BACK IN HER FACE.  HE BASICALLY ASKED HOW SHE COULD BE THE WOMEN'S CANDIDATE WHEN SHE DID ALL IN HER POWER TO DESTROY THE VERY WOMEN WHO HAD ACCUSED HER HUSBAND OF SEXUAL ABUSE WITH EVIDENCE TO BACK IT UP.


    SO IS THERE REALLY A WAR GOING ON AGAINST WOMEN AND, IF SO, WHO IS LEADING IT AND WHY?  AND KEEP IN MIND THERE ARE MANY THINGS GOING ON TODAY THAT ARE OF GREAT THREAT TO WOMEN AND THE MOST CRITICAL RIGHT NOW IS THE IMPORT OF SUPPOSED "REFUGEES" WHO DO NOT ACCEPT WESTERN CULTURE AND HAVE NO RESPECT FOR WOMEN.  ONE ONLY NEED LOOK AT EUROPE TO SEE THE POSSIBLE HORRORS THAT COULD BE COMING TO AMERICA SOON. AND WHO IS PUSHING THIS PROGRAM AND WHY?


    THERE'S MUCH TO TALK ABOUT AND WE'LL COVER AS MUCH AS WE CAN ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT'S NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE. WE'RE READY TO GO WITH AN IMPROVED AUDIO SYSTEM AND CAN'T WAIT TO GET STARTED. HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US AT 7PM EST.

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE TONIGHT: 2016 - WILL THE "REAL AMERICA" COME BACK?

    in Lifestyle

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WILL OPEN IT'S POLITICAL COMMENTARY FOR 2016 WITH TONIGHT'S SHOW.  WHILE MUCH OF OUR FOCUS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR WILL BE ON MY FAITH, MY LOVE OF ANIMALS AND NATURE, AND OTHER GENERAL INTEREST TOPICS, NOTHING IMPACTS US MORE THAT WHAT THE POLITICIANS DO TO US IN THEIR COCOON KNOWN AS WASHINGTON, DC.  NEVER HAS IT BEEN MORE OBVIOUS THAT WE, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, HAVE BEEN FORGOTTEN BY OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES IN THEIR QUEST FOR FORTUNE AND FAME. 


    THE NEW YEAR HAS COME AND AMERICA IS BURDENED WITH PROBLEMS, MOST OF WHICH HAVE BEEN MADE ONLY WORSE BY A GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRACY THAT SOMETIMES SEEMINGLY ANSWERS TO NO ONE.  WE CAN'T BLAME THE ENTIRE MESS ON A DISENGAGED AND IDEOLOGICAL PRESIDENT, FOR IT TAKES MANY TO DO THE THINGS THAT ARE FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGING AMERICA INTO A THIRD WORLD STATE.  FREEDOM OF RELIGION AND SPEECH ARE ABUSED, THE PRESIDENT TRIES TO PICK WINNERS AND LOSERS WHILE ALLOWING CHAOS AND TREACHERY TO RUN RAMPANT. ANARCHISTS ARE ALLOWED TO SPOUT VENOM WHILE GOOD AMERICAN CITIZENS ARE EXPECTED TO FOREGO THE TRUTH UNDER THE NEW RELIGION OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.  IT'S 2016 AND WE ARE NOW AT THE BREAKING POINT: EITHER THE COUNTRY CHOOSES FREEDOM AND INIDIVIDUAL INITIATIVE OR WHAT MAKES AMERICA GREAT WILL BE DEAD. AND WHEN WE TALK OF THESE THINGS, REMEMBER, IT'S NOT A REPUBLICAN OR A DEMOCRATIC ISSUE BY PARTY, IT'S AN AMERICAN ISSUE. IT TRANSCENDS POLITICAL AFFILIATION SINCE AT HIGH LEVELS OF BOTH PARTIES PERSONAL POWER AND WEALTH HAVE BECOME THE CENTERPOST OF WHAT THEY TRY TO DO TO US.


    I HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US TONIGHT AS WE DISCUSS WHAT 2016 HOLDS FOR US AND WHAT IT MEANS AND HOW WE CAN IMPACT THE NATION THIS YEAR.  WE'LL DISCUSS TAXES, NATIONAL DEFENSE AND SECURITY, IMMIGRATION, COMMON CORE, GUN CONTROL, GLOBAL WARMING, HEALTHCARE AND AS MUCH MORE AS TIME WILL ALLOW. BE THERE.

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE: ALERT! WILL FLORIDA PAVE OVER HER NATURAL BEAUTY?

    in Lifestyle

    TONIGHT NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WILL TAKE A SHORT BREAK FROM CHRISTMAS PROGRAMMING TO BROADCAST A SPECIAL ALERT TO FLORIDIANS CONCERNED ABOUT MAINTAINING OUR STATE'S NATURAL BEAUTY.  THE FLORIDA DOT IS PROPOSING AN AMBITIOUS PLAN TO LINK MAJOR METRO AREAS TOGETHER EASILY AND QUICKLY. THE PROBLEM IS, ALL OF THE PROPOSALS APPEAR TO FAVOR THE CREATION OF MASSIVE NEW HIGHWAYS AND RAILWAYS RIGHT THROUGH THE LAST BASTION OF OLD FLORIDA, THE INNER SPINE OF THE STATE.  THIS BROACASTER ATTENDED ONE SUCH MEETING IN OCALA THIS WEEK AS A CITIZEN OBSERVER WHERE LOTS OF LIP SERVICE WAS GIVEN TO THE COUNTRYSIDE YET RELEASES AFTER THE FIRST TASK FORCE MEETING SEEM TO INDICATE THE DIE IS ALREADY CAST. 


    WE AT NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE ARE NOT OPPOSED TO TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS, BUT WE ARE ABSOLUTELY OPPOSED TO MASSIVE NEW AND HIGHLY EXPENSIVE PROJECTS WHICH MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE WILL LEAD TO THE URBANIZATION OF ALL POINTS BETWEEN DESTINATIONS.  AFTER ALL, FLORIDA'S HISTORY IS FILLED WITH LAND DEALS AND SWINDLES WHICH HAVE CREATED MANY PROBLEMS THAT ARE JUST NOW GETTING WORSE. iF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL PROBABLY COME, BUT IS THAT WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT?  VICTIMS OF THE RUSH TO GROW AND GROW AND GROW ARE ALWAYS THOSE WITHOUT DEEP POCKETS OR POLITICAL CLOUT TO FIGHT.  AND REMEMBER, MOST OF THE JOBS AND SUPPOSED PROSPERITY GOES TO THOSE BROUGHT IN TO FILL THE VOID, ONCE AGAIN PUTTING EXISTING CITIZENRY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PRIORITY CHAIN AND PITTED AGAINST THE POLITICAL CLASS.


    WE'LL TALK ABOUT THIS TONIGHT BUT, SINCE IT IS THE CHRISTMAS SEASON, OUR MUSIC WILL ALL BE IN THE SPIRIT OF THE SEASON.  THEN, IN FUTURE DECEMBER BROADCASTS WE WILL REVERT BACK TO THE PEACE AND SERENITY OF CHRISTMAS PROGRAMMING. I HOPE YOU FIND TONIGHT'S SHOW OF INTEREST, FOLKS, AS THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNNG.
