    The DETROIT-IFICATION OF RURAL AMERICA

    in Politics Conservative

    Under Obama, rural poverty has slipped off the national agenda as presidential candidates, pundits, and the press focus on the needs of big cities – the very places making the countryside poor. 


     


    The fate of upstate New York is a small scene in a larger story enveloping rural areas across the United States. As the balance of population shifts to cities, urban elites are increasingly favoring laws and regulations that benefit urban voters over rural ones. The result is the "Detroit-ification" of sparsely populated areas so that the countryside increasingly resembles the inner city. This trend fuels the intense populism and angry politics that has shattered the post-WWII consensus and divided the nation.

    Bridging the Last Mile in Rural America for Telemedicine/Telehealth

    in Technology

    Iron Bow's Dan Klanderman shares his thoughts about telemedicine and telehealth and how organizations are innovatively solving the issue of the "last mile" in rural areas. Many in America not only do not enjoy high-speed broadband access, but many also do not have any Internet access at all, but smartphones and mobile connectivity are creating opportunities for those people to take advantage of some telehealth solutions today.

    Rural America: The Plight of Small Landowners and Their Environment

    in Politics Conservative

    On this week's edition of NORTH FLORIDA WRITER TALKS, host James Dick, a regular contributor to the Conservative Report and blogger through his own web site, North Florida Writer, northfloridawriter.com  will lead a discussion of the plight of small rural landowners facing the pressure of development in rural North Florida. The show should be of benefit to all who love the rural lifestyle as the American landscape is under threat of urbanization from sea to shining sea.  James will be joined by two landowners in the middle of the struggle for retention of their lifestyle, one a retired NCIS agent and the other a housewife, turned activist, when she realized after she had raised her family that the environment she loved and in which she had lived her entire life was collapsing around her,  Topics will include:


    PROPERTY RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES


    THE IMPACT OF LOBBYISTS ON THE LEGISLATIVE PROCESS


    ACTION STEPS WHICH CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE


    THE PROPER BALANCE BETWEEN URBAN AND RURAL


    Whether you are Conservative, Liberal or somewhere in between, if you live in, or want to maintain a  reasonable rural presence in America, this show has something for you. After all, do we really need another strip mall or postage stamp lot development at every bend on the country road?
