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!
Just as your tactics may be dictated by the amount of water available on scene, modified and aggressive interior attack can also affect how much water is truly needed at a rural working fire. Today we'll discuss different means of attack in the rural setting and safe, effective means of establishing water supply.
What my God should supply all your needs according to his riches and glory. Phillipians 4 19. We have to supply all our needs, but if it doesn't work without us believing, how is it that we should express our faith in the area of finance? It takes faith to give away a portion of what we have and trust that we have enough. If there were no God, and if his promise of multiplying I would give back to us was not true, it would be stupid to give. But there is a God who is true, to his promise. When we give we express that faith. People who are not giving because they do not have enough are people who don't believe. But phillipians has proof that faith through that giving. Some people have used the word Need to say they are only the bare neccessities. And the word supply came from the greek word PLEROO which means to Replenish.
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.

Terry Reasoner @ Virginia Speaks her Mind-Protesting AGAIN 50 Years Later in DC
Activist and fellow Progressive Terry and I met online and when I took an organizing job on the Americans for Workplace Oppurtunity, helping organize West Virginia's Senator Manchin to commit to vote for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. WHich he did! Terry herself delivered personally the signatures we gathered to his office and indeed has spoke in depth for Human Rights and Decency. She has championed the people of West Virginia by asking Senator Jay Rockafellow why he doesn't speak out to America when they slander or depict West Virginians as backwards or hillbilly. She has removed the stereotypes everywhere she goes.
She volunteers on so many projects that they are to numerous to name, Pro-Choice Issues, Canvassing and Phonebanking.

I met Harold Geddings lll while working during the modterms in Florida 2010. He came to me highly recomended by a friend and when I was asked to hire ten Team rural folk from Georgia there were not enough willing to come on such short notice hence my meeting Harold. I was delighted to meet this qualified, fantastically great guy who turned out to be one of my key players in the drama that unfolded in Polk County 2010. We were called the one sunny spot during the midterms for our exceptional voter outreach, engagement and organizational work at the end. The pace was fast and Harold was to.
I am delighted to be introducing him. He couragesouly ran for Congress in South Carolina's 2nd Congressional District against notorious "Congressman Joe "YOU LIE" Wilson. His campaign Hard Hats for Harold got some press because he kept his day job and ran against an incumbent who does not represent working folk. Harold got tapped this year by the Labor Party as thier Candidate and he willing excepted. He is a great and honorable man, He is also a Team Player, and a Progressive voice for all of us in the South. He is THE qualified, bona-fide, Labor Candidate and I can't wait to introduce you all to him and his race. We hope you will tune in live where you will be able to call in at (347) 996-3968.
ENVISION THIS: Combining the best practices from history and around the world to create a modern, rural micropolis in Central Maine, USA
Our guest, Tracy Gayton of Dover Foxcroft, Maine, envisions The Piscataquis Village Project as such a settlement “evolving organically and growing incrementally” and, so far, he has raised over 1/5 of the $2 million required funds to get it started.
The Piscataquis Village Project “was founded to establish the first compact, car free village in the United States...Though our project will not construct buildings, we will draft the street plan and simple design code, based on the best of traditional practices, that will guide the build-out of the site. Attached, durable and fire resistant buildings, no taller than a walkable height, will front on narrow streets, with continuous arcaded sidewalks offering shelter for the elderly and mobility challenged. Buildings will be arranged to create plazas, serving as markets and democratic meeting places for all classes of people, and will surround interior courtyards for more private space. All destinations will be within convenient walking distance, with vehicles garaged at the village perimeter. 375 acres of garden space, sufficiently sized for each household to raise a significant amount of food, will encompass the developed zone…The green belt, other than the area designated for vehicle parking, would also be a zone for allotment gardens, small scale agriculture, playing fields, outdoor recreation and park-like green space.
Is the Piscataquis Village Project a promising way to combine the resilient, equitable, and Earth-friendly qualities essential for a sustainable future with the best of rural and village lifestyles of the past? Let’s question and listen to its planner, Tracy Gayton, to find out.
