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.

This is Part 2 of the discussion started Sunday on NORTH FLORIDA WRITER TALKS concerning the Plight of Small Rural Landowners. Water is becoming an issue in Florida and small rural landowners are certainly holding "the short end of the stick". Karen Chadwick joins host James Dick of northfloridawriter.com and a major contributor to the Conservative Report to discuss this problem that impacts not only Florida but small landowners across the nation.
Karen brings extensive practical knowledge of Florida's water network gained from her experience as a sculptor who has designed models of rivers and other aquifer related water sources that are now displaying stress from lack of sufficient recharge and introduction of pollutants. Preparing for her work assignments has required her to interface with subject matter experts with both government and private experience as well as conduct extensive independent research to master each task undertaken. The show is being broadcast Saturday since Sunday, Easter, will be spent honoring The One who gave us the ultimate gift.
We will discuss the interrelationship of water and development, the state of the water sources today and where they are headed in the future. If you are concerned about the quality and quantity of your water supply, as you should be, the discussion is designed to make you think about what life will be like if we don't pay attention to this life giving resource. If not, the future could be very bleak indeed.

Last Friday Michelle Manhart an air force veteran saw protesters stepping on the American flag she took immediate action that resulted in her being detained by the Georgia, Valdosta State University police.
The former air force sergeant was informed by a student that there were protesters on campus that had the flag on the ground and they were walking on it. Manhart saw that a group of protesters were desecrating the flag by using it as a floor matt.
According to Manhart, she stressed, “I went over there to pick up the flag from the ground. I not concerned as much for the cause of the group’s protest, but felt very strongly that the flag did not deserve to be on the ground."
