    NO TO COMMON CORE: A FLORIDA PERSPECTIVE

    in Lifestyle

    SEVERAL WEEKS AGO WE HAD MEG NORRIS, A GEORGIA OPT-OUT OF COMMON CORE LEADER AS OUR GUEST TO DISCUSS THE PITFALLS OF COMMON CORE AND THE NEGATIVE IMPACT IT WOULD HAVE ON THE EDUCATION OF OUR CHILDREN, MOST PARTICULARLY THE YOUNGSTERS IN GRADES K-3.  TONIGHT (THURSDAY, JUNE 11) NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WELCOMES CINDY HAMILTON, A LEADER IN THE ORLANDO OPT-OUT ORGANIZATION TO PRESENT THE FLORIDA PERSPECTIVE ON THIS PROGRAM.


    CINDY WILL FILL US IN ON WHAT IS HAPPENING PRESENTLY AND PLANNED IN THE NEAR FUTURE TO KEEP EDUCATING FLORIDIANS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE ON WHY THIS PROGRAM MUST BE STOPPED.  SHE HAS DEDICATED HERSELF TO THE CAUSE OF FURTHERING AN EDUCATION PROGRAM FOR OUR CHILDREN WHICH WILL PREPARE THEM TO BE ALL THEY CAN BE, NOT TO BE PIGEON-HOLED BY A CRONY-CAPITALIST AND GOVERNMENT LINKED POWERHOUSE WHICH THINKS IT KNOWS BETTER THAN PARENTS AND TEACHERS WHAT OUR CHILDREN NEED.


    I HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US THURSDAY NIGHT TO SEE WHAT IS AT STAKE. THE SHOW WILL START PROMPTLY AT 9:02 PM BUT WILL AS ALWAYS REMAIN AVAILABLE ON DEMAND.

    True Cost of Toll Abuse - Toll Taxes Equate to about $2.00 Per Gallon Gas Tax!

    in Politics

    Toll taxes today are the equivalant to yesteryear's "Modern Highway Man"



    The privatization and excessive taxation of our national infrastructure is very symbolic of what is happening to our country......Simply put - we are being taxed into poverty, sold-out to foreign corporations and our every move is being spied upon. 



    Enough Already!  Stop destroying OUR Country!



    Do the math....True Cost of Toll Abuse - Toll Taxes Equate to about $2.00 Per Gallon Gas Tax!



    Fact the truth.....Privitization is a scam for foreign corpations agaist the American people!  Our elected public servants have sold us out to a foreign corporation by the name of Cintra.  Cintra filed bankruptucy for the Indiana Toll Road. 


     



    The various anti-toll taxation groups across the country need to come together and become a real force for change.  Americans adamantly oppose toll taxes, but the "Gang of Thugs" in public office ignore the will of the American people.



    I say Enough Already!  Stop destroying OUR Country!

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER SHORT TAKE: IMAGINE......(4)

    in Lifestyle

    IMAGINE A WORLD OF UNLIMITED RESOURCES AND MONEY WHERE WE COULD ALL DO AS MUCH AS WE WANT AND USE AS MUCH AS WE WANT WITHOUT EVERY HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT RUNNING OUT OF WHAT WE WANT.  I THINK WE'D PROBABLY HAVE TO BE IN HEAVEN TO HAVE SUCH AN OPPORTUNITY BUT, THEN AGAIN, WE OFTEN LIVE TODAY AS IF THINGS ARE UNLIMITED.


    FOOD, SUPPLIES, GOVERNMENT SERVICES, CARS, HOMES, LAND AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT MONEY CAN BUY TODAY IS A SUPPLY AND DEMAND SITUATION.  WHEN SUPPLY OUTPACES DEMAND, IT IS EASIER FOR ALL OF US TO GET WHAT WE WANT. WHEN DEMAND IS GREATER, THE OPPOSITE APPLIES, YET WE OFTEN LIVE AS IF THERE ARE NO LIMITS UNTIL WE HIT THE BRICK WALL: WE CAN'T AFFORD IT OR WE CAN'T GET IT.  AND THE WORST OF IT IS THAT BY THAT POINT WE ARE OUT OF THE ONE ITEM, MONEY, THAT IS NEEDED. THIS APPLIES TO INDIVIDUALS, BUSINESS AND GOVERNMENT.


    TONIGHT WE'LL TALK A LITTLE ABOUT FACING REALITY: IN OUR HOMES, SCHOOLS, WORK, GOVERNMENT, CHURCH AND EVEN LEISURE.  LET'S TRY TO TAKE CARE OF OUR REAL NEEDS BEFORE WE GO AFTER THE WANTS.  IT WILL SAVE US A LOT OF GRIEF AND A LOT OF AGGRAVATION.  SEE YOU TONIGHT AT 9 (ET)

    A North Florida Writer "Short Take": Imagine(3)........

    in Lifestyle

    TONIGHT'S SHORT TAKE WILL BE ABOUT A SPECIAL PEEVE OF MINE: THE PERILS OF DINING OUT.  AND NO, IN THIS SHORT OPINION PIECE I'M NOT COMPLAINING ABOUT THE RESTAURANT OR THE WAIT STAFF.  LET'S JUST ASSUME THAT THE FOOD IS EXCELLENT, THE SERVICE IS GREAT AND THE AMBIANCE OF THE LAYOUT AND ACCOUTREMENTS OF THE ESTABLISHMENT ARE SUPERB.  WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT IS THE BEHAVIOR, PRESENTATION AND ATTITUDE OF SOME OF THE DINERS WHO RUIN A NICE EVENING FOR EVERYONE.  I KNOW THAT ALL OF US HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS.


    SO JUST IMAGINE....A GREAT RESTAURANT FILLED WITH NICE, WELL MANNERED AND PRESENTABLE PEOPLE WHO RECOGNIZE MY RIGHT AND YOURS NOT TO BE THROWN INTO "GRAND CENTRAL STATION AT RUSH HOUR".  IF YOU'RE IN A RUSH THERE ARE PLENTY OF DECENT FAMILY ORIENTED FACILITIES THAT MEET YOUR NEEDS AS WELL AS UNTOLD FAST FOOD ESTABLISHMENTS.  THERE ARE ALSO MANY PLACES THAT ESPECIALLY CATER TO KIDS, SO CONSIDER THAT AS WELL.


    AS RODNEY DANGERFIELD SAID: "I DON'T GET NO RESPECT". YOU NEVER WANT TO LEAVE A GOOD RESTAURANT FEELING THAT WAY.


    THE SHOW WILL ACTUALLY START AT 9:02 EASTERN.  I HOPE YOU'LL JOIN ME. DINING OUT, JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE THINGS WE DO IN LIFE AND LIVING IT.

    North Florida Writer Live "Short Take": Imagine...........(5)

    in Lifestyle

    IMAGINE THAT YOU BUY YOUR BEAUTIFUL HOUSE, YOU NEED TO MAKE SOME ADJUSTMENTS ON YOUR PROPERTY AND REFINEMENTS AND YOU TAKE CARE OF IT AND THINGS ARE NOW PERFECT.  BUT WAIT, DID YOU GET APPROVAL FOR YOUR ACTIONS? DOES IT MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN YOUR PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENTS AND DID YOU PAY ANY PENALTIES AND FINES ASSESSED FOR NOT FOLLOWING LOCAL, STATE OR FEDERAL REGULATIONS?


    SERIOUSLY, FOLKS, IF YOU THINK THAT A HOME IS A MAN'S (OR WOMAN'S) CASTLE, YOU MIGHT FIND YOURSELF IN FOR A HUGE SHOCK.  AND TODAY MORE AND MORE DIFFERENT AGENCIES AND OFFICES AT ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT ARE GETTING IN ON THE GRAVY TRAIN OF TAKING YOUR MONEY FOR HAVING THE PRIVILEGE TO OWN LAND IN THEIR JURISDICTION AND IT IS LIKELY TO ONLY GET WORSE IN THE DAYS AHEAD.


    AND IF AND WHEN YOU PAY OFF YOUR MORTGAGE, JUST TRY NOT PAYING PROPERTY TAXES OR OTHER LOCAL ASSESSMENTS AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS?  YOU COULD VERY WELL FIND YOURSELF OUT ON THE STREET AND YOU REMAIN AT THE MERCY OF HUNGRY GOVERNMENT AGENCIES THAT ALWAYS WANT TO TAX MORE SO THEY CAN SPEND MORE.


    JUST BE AWARE AND MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THE RULES BEFORE YOU GET YOURSELF IN A "PICKLE".

    Internationally-Known Author and Mystic Michael Roads Interview Tonight!

    in Spirituality

    Alijandra presents a recent, pre-recorded interview of best-selling author and mystic Michael Roads. They will be discussing his current book "Stepping Between Realities".  Although this interview was pre-recorded, the chat room and switchboard will be open, and monitored by host, Alijandra.


    Michael Roads says he is an ordinary man on an extraordinary journey 


    Many people talk nowadays of unconditional love, of awakening, and of metaphysical experiences. Few can say they have been on this path for over half a century. Michael Roads was born a farmer's son in Cambridgeshire, England, in 1937. From an early age he discovered that he could travel beyond linear space and time, and enter into deep communication with Nature. Since his spiritual awakening at the age of 49, Michael has written 17 books on his experiences. Since 1991 he has traveled yearly over five continents presenting inspirational and life-changing '5-Day Intensives' in a clear, compelling, humorous and no-nonsense format, enabling many participants to experience amazing shifts in consciousness. For many years, he has lived in Australia.


    Michael, the ordinary mystic, weaves his wealth of life experiences with the most extra-ordinary insights - insights that offer pathways to our deep spiritual relationship with Nature and with Self. He has the wisdom and ability to empower people to gain understanding of the true nature of reality, and assist them in their spiritual awakening to their Divine potential. His website in the US is www.michaelroadsusa.com

    The Spirit Comes to Charleston

    in Lifestyle

    THE DEADLY SHOOTING DEATHS OF NINE BLACK AMERICANS IN A CHARLESTON, SC CHURCH LAST WEDNESDAY NIGHT LEFT MANY THINKING THAT ANOTHER FULL BLOWN RACIAL RIOT MIGHT VERY WELL ENGULF THIS BEAUTIFUL SOUTHERN TOWN.  AFTER ALL, THE ALLEGED GUNMAN, DYLANN ROOF, WAS DEFINITELY A RACIST FILLED WITH HATE AND HE SHOWED LITTLE EMOTION AS HE GUNNED DOWN CHURCH MEMBERS ATTENDING A BIBLE CLASS WITH THEIR PASTOR, REVEREND CLEMENTA PINCKNEY, WHO WAS ALSO KILLED.


    BUT CHARLESTON SURPRISED THE WORLD AS THE CHRISTIAN SPIRIT OF THE FAMILIES OF THE VICTIMS, OTHER CHURCH GOERS AND THE OVERALL COMMUNITY RESPONDED WITH LOVE RATHER THAN HATE.  AND YESTERDAY, A HUGE CROWD VISITED THE EMANUEL AME CHURCH TO SHOW SOLIDARITY WITH ITS MEMBERS IN THE WAKE OF THE TRAGEDY.


    WHY WERE THINGS SO DIFFERENT IN CHARLESTON THAN THE EVENTS PREVIOUSLY IN FERGUSON AND BALTIMORE?  AND WHAT CAN THIS TEACH US AS WE GO FORWARD IN A NATION THAT HAS SO MUCH HOSTILITY AND HATRED INSTILLED IN SO MANY?


    JOIN NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE TONIGHT AS WE DISCUSS CHARLESTON AND HOW THE HOLY SPIRIT MAKES THINGS DIFFERENT.  WE'LL SEE YOU AT 9 EASTERN.
