    Seasoned Rural Organizer Jessica Barrett shares her Experience, Strength, & Hope

    in Politics Progressive

    (JUST A DISCLAIMER to let you know we loose conncection at about 33 mins or so. We will have Part 2 ASAP to close)


    Jessica Barrett shares her struggles organizing the powerful red county. The only red county south of the famous I-4 cooridor. She began a Young Dems of America Chapter in Polk, and a lil history folks so you can get your head wrapped around the courage this lady has. Big Ben HIll Griiffin, who built the "Gator Swampbowl" for the UF. He owns cattle, potassium farms, you name it. Well he has a Grandaughter named, Katherine Harris, (who grew up in Bartow Polk County) you may recall the name for she was the Sec of State of Fl who called the race for Bush against AL Gore in 2000. COincidence, we think not....


    Jessica and I left a Purple county, just ready to claim it's voting rights, although voter suppresion and collusion to committ fraud was seen on 2010. Very powerful people control outcomes, but in the midterm 2010 we almost won a congressional race due to our high volunteerism and indeed Polk County was the ONLY County called out the night before the elction fro the exceptional work the county did. It was the people, and Jessica started the way. I can't wait to do this interview! Hope you will join us for encouragment on mid-terms and take away suggestions that worked for us In Florida 2010!

    Why People Riot, Loot, Burn and Destroy Their Communities

    in Politics Conservative

    Urban Communities are at War why??? Because the relationship between Government, Police Brutality, and the People are DISCONNECTED. Who is the Government? ... THE PEOPLE??? WHO VOTED FOR THE JUDGE~THE POLICE CHIEF~THE HEAD OF THE SHERIFF DEPARTMENT? THE TREAT AMERICA WITH NO JUSTICE AND NO PEACE


     


    Knee jerk/emotional response is a part of it but let's also consider that the 'Authority' usually safeguard the important things which limits targets of oppression so that emotion still needs an outlet. Often times it is the oppressed boxed into their own areas that have that 'knee jerk' response.


     


     Without some training and very good leadership that excess energy erupts in its primeval form often in our own communities. Let us also remember that there are always opportunists who have no emotional ties to the righteous cause who act as provocateurs.


     


     I am suggesting that our communities are devoid of good and sustained leadership.


     This is by design.


     


     We know from our High School Physics classes that nature abhors a vacuum and it will be filled.


     


     Good leadership in the Black community is a vacuum. We need to fill it with people of our choosing and reject those given to us by the same ones that oppress us.


     


     Ask yourself, "who is my community leader?" Then ask yourself is that person working towards the community's best interest?We have a role to play. Let's play our role

    Empower Half Hour Implementing Enjoy Life Communities

    in Motivation

    This podcast will focus on how easy it is to implement an Enjoy Life Community.  


    Enjoy Life Communities are A SOLUTION -- It's so sad how our Country has been divided over these past weeks. Perhaps a lot of it has been due to the lack of leadership of our elected officials. There is so much hurt and hatred, and we know each one of us feels differently about what is happening in our society. BUT, we believe it truly has to stop. A few weeks ago Doreen came up with an idea which has been sponsored by the Time to Play Foundation - the Enjoy Life Community Project (www.timetoplay.com/enjoy-life-community)


    We presented it to the Brookhaven Town Board 10/28 and she's been speaking to a few elected officials. It's a big idea. How does it work?  It brings EVERYONE together to the table - NOT to focus on problems, but to find solutions... so EVERYONE can enjoy life. We all live here. I think it's time to stop fighting. This is not to minimize anything that is going on in our society, but to actually find solutions. Certainly protesting and rioting is not solving anything at all. And, every life is precious. The longer this goes on, the more heartache we will see.


    Please contact us -- help us get this started. For all of us -- for our children.


    Empower Half Hour is made possible by the Time to Play Foundation, Inc., a not for  profit corporation. See more at www.TheEnjoyLifeProject.org

    Rural Council Co-Founder Deb Kozikowski Speaks about New Suppressive Voter Laws

    in Politics Progressive

    It took generations of struggle for women and minorities to gain the right to vote. With the voting rights act in 1965, finally every vote counted.

    One generation later, 34 states have passed voter ID laws, disenfranchising millions of voters. Most are women, older, or minority voters.

    RuralVotes and South Forward have teamed up to launch a new Voter ID Project. to help voters.
