    North Florida Writer Live "Short Take 2": Imagine...........

    in Lifestyle

    TONIGHT'S SHORT TAKE WILL BE DEVOTED TO FATHERS AND SONS.  IN TODAY'S CRAZY WORLD, IT'S EASY FOR DAD TO GET WRAPPED UP IN WORK AND THEIR OWN EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES WITH THE RESULT BEING A YOUNG BOY FEELING LEFT OUT.  HAVING LOST MY DAD AT AN EARLY AGE, I KNOW VERY WELL WHAT NOT HAVING A FATHER CAN FEEL LIKE ALTHOUGH I WAS VERY BLESSED TO HAVE A VERY SPECIAL MOTHER.  SO LET'S IMAGINE FOR A FEW MOMENTS..........IMAGINE HOW MUCH BETTER LIFE CAN BE FOR BOTH FATHERS AND SONS WHEN THEY SHARE LIFE TOGETHER.  AND IMAGINE WHAT THOSE WHO DON'T ARE FEELING.


    AMERICA HAS FAR TOO MANY FAMILIES WITHOUT A FATHER, NOT THROUGH DEATH OR DISASTER, BUT THROUGH SELFISHNESS AND LACK OF RESPONSIBILITY.  IMAGINE IF WE CAN CHANGE THAT: IMAGINE WHAT A BETTER PLACE IT CAN BE.


    SEE YOU TONIGHT AT NINE.

    A Conversation With Florida State Rep., Ed Narain, District 61

    in Current Events

    Join us on Friday, May 8, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. for the next edition of our podcast, America's Community Voices Network, onBLOGTALKRADIO.COM, with our special guest the newly elected representative for the Florida State House of Representatives, District 61, Mr. Edwin Narain. Since his election to office during the last election cycle, the freshmen democrat has made his debut in the Florida State House with great distinction. He was the first freshman ever elected to lead theminority caucus (unprecedented) and he was the chief sponsor of a bill that was passed into law to provide critical training to police officers to recognize the symptoms of a diabetic episode. Known as "The Arthur Green Act," this critical bill was sponsored my Rep. Narain after Mr. Green's untimely during a traffic stop in which he was suffering a hypoglycemic episode. The police officers, through no fault of their own, did not recognize the symptoms and attempted to arrest Mr. Green for erratic and DUI driving. Mr. Green collapsed and died in what was at the least a highly preventable death.


    To listen live and participate in the program please call (347) 857-3350 to ask questions or make comments or go to BLOGTALKRADIO.COM . To listen to the program after the live show, on demand listening will be available on BLOGTALKRADIO.COM, ITUNES and Facebook.

    Barbara Stone takes on Goliath vs. Florida Bar & Judiciary

    in Business

    Barbara Stone is a courageous "David" of sorts, taking on Goliath in a federal lawsuit against the Florida Bar for racketeering. She has also sued several judges for the legal abuse she has suffered via going to jail and being placed on house arrest for daring to try to save her mother's life from guardianship. In return for filing the most recent lawsuit, the judge in her mother's guardianship, Michael Genden, has issued a "show cause" order as to why she should not be held in contempt of court. The Order lists violating his Order, which prohibits Barbara from having any indirect or direct contact (ie knowing about her mother's neglect by the guardians), but is completely based upon hearsay and is thus, "no evidence." It certainly is replete with hearsay, which will not support a show cause order. The Judge is further trying to hold her in contempt for filing the Motion to Disqualify him due to his adverse interests. What a mess! Florida statutes say the Judge should disqualify himself because the 14th Amendment due process mandates it. See Caperton vs. Massey United States Supreme Court opinion (2009), which states that a judge must disqualify himself if there could be even an appearance of bias or impropriety, whether or not it subjectively exists. I think we have definitely met that standard here. The media will be at Monday's hearing, so let's cheer and encourage Barbara on as she helps write history!

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER TALKS: ARE YOU PREPARED FOR ANY DISASTER?

    in Politics Conservative

    WE AMERICANS ARE VERY SPOILED.  NO MATTER WHAT DISASTROUS SITUATIONS WE MIGHT SEE AROUND US, WE ALWAYS ASSUME THAT IT CAN'T HAPPEN TO US.  UNFORTUNATELY, ONCE THE DISASTER STRIKES, IT IS OFTEN TOO LATE TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT AND WE BECAME DEPENDENT UPON THE GOVERNMENT TO HELP US.


    WE'VE SEEN ALL TOO OFTEN THAT THE PEOPLE WHO COME OUT OF TRAGEDY THE FASTEST ARE THE ONES WHO DEVELOP A PLAN OF ACTION FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES.  THEY ARE READY AS MUCH AS THEY CAN BE AND THE DISASTER IS OF MUCH LESS CONSEQUENCE.  LIVES ARE SAVES, LIFE IS ABLE TO GO ON AND THE ENSUING HARD WORK TO RECOVER IS MUCH MORE MANAGEABLE.  AFTER ALL, WHEN WE'RE OUT OF FOOD, WATER AND BASIC SHELTER IT IS HARD TO SURVIVE FOR LONG.


    TODAY THE TYPES OF POTENTIAL DISASTER FACING US HAVE GROWN SIGNIFICANTLY. IN ADDITION TO FLOODS, HURRICANES, TORNADOES AND EARTHQUAKES, WE NOW SEE AN INCREASE IN MOB RIOTING ACTION, THREATS FROM FOREIGN ENTITIES WHO TRULY HATE AMERICA AS WELL AS THE POTENTIAL FOR A DEADLY AIR ASSAULT WHICH EVEN INCLUDES AN EMP BURST.


    IN THIS EPISODE OF NORTH FLORIDA WRITER TALKS, MARK COLLIER JOINS ME TO TALK ABOUT THE THINGS WE NEED TO DO TO BE PREPARED FOR THAT HORRIBLE EVENT THAT WE HOPE NEVER HAPPENS.  BUT LIFE CHANGES RAPIDLY, SO IT'S IMPORTANT TO PLAN AHEAD.  JOIN ME, JAMES DICK, YOUR HOST WITH NORTH FLORIDA WRITER TALKS FOR WHAT I AM SURE WILL BE A ROUSING DISCUSSION.  DON'T BE FEARFUL, JUST REALIZE THE CHALLENGES OUT THERE AND DO YOUR PART TO BE READY.  FOR IN THE FIRST PERIOD OF TIME AFTER A DISASTER, YOU ARE REALLY ON YOUR OWN.  GET YOUR "GAME PLAN" READY. SELF PRESERVATION IS AN INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY MATTER.  YOU OWE IT TO YOUR LOVED ONES TO DO WHAT YOU MUST TO CARE FOR THEM.

    Weird and Wacky Laws

    Weird and Wacky Laws


    Let’s have some fun discussing the ridiculous, outdated and just almost-too-funny-to-be-true laws that exist in the US. This 30-minute show will be fun, and provide legal trivia that’s perfect for a water-cooler conversation or to stump your friends!


    Just in the presenter’s home state of Florida:



    The Florida State Constitution allows for freedom of speech, a trial by jury, and pregnant pigs to not be confined in cages.        
    Laws in Florida include:



    It is illegal to sell your children.
    It is considered an offense to shower naked.
    You are not allowed to break more than three (3) dishes per day.
    And in case you think it is ok to switch to breaking cups in Florida, be aware: chip the edges of more than four cups or saucers, and you are breaking the Law!


    Keep in mind that this radio show is for entertainment... it is not advisable using the mentioned laws as evidence in court, unless you'd like the judge to laugh you into jail!


    The Presenter is “LADY LAWYER LIVE,” Cynthia Rignanese. Ms. Rignanese has been practicing law in the city of Winter Haven in Central Florida since 1990. Her practice focuses on estate planning, business, corporate and real property law. She can be reached live on the air. Following the show, her office number is 863/294-1114.
