    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE: IS THERE A REPUBLICAN WAR ON WOMEN?

    in Lifestyle

    FINALLY, NORTH FLORIDA WRITER IS BACK ON THE AIR WITH A PROGRAM WEDNESDAY NIGHT.  OUR UPDATED AUDIO SUPPORT SHOULD MAKE THE SHOW SO MUCH BETTER. WE'LL TALK ABOUT A TOPIC THAT GETS MUCH DISCUSSION BUT, AT LEAST IN THIS BROADCASTER'S OPINION, IS AS PHONY AS CAN BE BUT, OF COURSE, EACH OF US IS FREE TO DECIDE FOR OURSELVES.


    REMEMBER IN EARLY 2012 WHEN GEORGE STEPHANOPOULIS ASKED MITT ROMNEY IF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WANTED TO MAKE THE SALE OF CONTRACEPTIVES ILLEGAL?  AT THE TIME IT SEEMED TO BE VERY STRANGE TO INTERJECT THIS SUBJECT INTO A DEBATE OF SUBSTANCE, BUT LATER, AS WE REMEMBERED STEPHANOPOULIS' CLOSE TIES TO HILLARY CLINTON, IT MADE MORE SENSE.  AND AS WE'VE SEEN OVER TIME, HILLARY HAS COME TO THE FOREFRONT ON THIS PHONY ISSUE BY CLAIMING TO BE THE ONE CANDIDATE SUPPORTING WOMEN WITH A RECORD TO BACK IT UP.  AND SHE USED IT AGAINST DONALD TRUMP IN RECENT TIMES BUT, BINGO, THE TRUMPSTER THREW IT RIGHT BACK IN HER FACE.  HE BASICALLY ASKED HOW SHE COULD BE THE WOMEN'S CANDIDATE WHEN SHE DID ALL IN HER POWER TO DESTROY THE VERY WOMEN WHO HAD ACCUSED HER HUSBAND OF SEXUAL ABUSE WITH EVIDENCE TO BACK IT UP.


    SO IS THERE REALLY A WAR GOING ON AGAINST WOMEN AND, IF SO, WHO IS LEADING IT AND WHY?  AND KEEP IN MIND THERE ARE MANY THINGS GOING ON TODAY THAT ARE OF GREAT THREAT TO WOMEN AND THE MOST CRITICAL RIGHT NOW IS THE IMPORT OF SUPPOSED "REFUGEES" WHO DO NOT ACCEPT WESTERN CULTURE AND HAVE NO RESPECT FOR WOMEN.  ONE ONLY NEED LOOK AT EUROPE TO SEE THE POSSIBLE HORRORS THAT COULD BE COMING TO AMERICA SOON. AND WHO IS PUSHING THIS PROGRAM AND WHY?


    THERE'S MUCH TO TALK ABOUT AND WE'LL COVER AS MUCH AS WE CAN ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT'S NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE. WE'RE READY TO GO WITH AN IMPROVED AUDIO SYSTEM AND CAN'T WAIT TO GET STARTED. HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US AT 7PM EST.

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE TONIGHT: 2016 - WILL THE "REAL AMERICA" COME BACK?

    in Lifestyle

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WILL OPEN IT'S POLITICAL COMMENTARY FOR 2016 WITH TONIGHT'S SHOW.  WHILE MUCH OF OUR FOCUS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR WILL BE ON MY FAITH, MY LOVE OF ANIMALS AND NATURE, AND OTHER GENERAL INTEREST TOPICS, NOTHING IMPACTS US MORE THAT WHAT THE POLITICIANS DO TO US IN THEIR COCOON KNOWN AS WASHINGTON, DC.  NEVER HAS IT BEEN MORE OBVIOUS THAT WE, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, HAVE BEEN FORGOTTEN BY OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES IN THEIR QUEST FOR FORTUNE AND FAME. 


    THE NEW YEAR HAS COME AND AMERICA IS BURDENED WITH PROBLEMS, MOST OF WHICH HAVE BEEN MADE ONLY WORSE BY A GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRACY THAT SOMETIMES SEEMINGLY ANSWERS TO NO ONE.  WE CAN'T BLAME THE ENTIRE MESS ON A DISENGAGED AND IDEOLOGICAL PRESIDENT, FOR IT TAKES MANY TO DO THE THINGS THAT ARE FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGING AMERICA INTO A THIRD WORLD STATE.  FREEDOM OF RELIGION AND SPEECH ARE ABUSED, THE PRESIDENT TRIES TO PICK WINNERS AND LOSERS WHILE ALLOWING CHAOS AND TREACHERY TO RUN RAMPANT. ANARCHISTS ARE ALLOWED TO SPOUT VENOM WHILE GOOD AMERICAN CITIZENS ARE EXPECTED TO FOREGO THE TRUTH UNDER THE NEW RELIGION OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.  IT'S 2016 AND WE ARE NOW AT THE BREAKING POINT: EITHER THE COUNTRY CHOOSES FREEDOM AND INIDIVIDUAL INITIATIVE OR WHAT MAKES AMERICA GREAT WILL BE DEAD. AND WHEN WE TALK OF THESE THINGS, REMEMBER, IT'S NOT A REPUBLICAN OR A DEMOCRATIC ISSUE BY PARTY, IT'S AN AMERICAN ISSUE. IT TRANSCENDS POLITICAL AFFILIATION SINCE AT HIGH LEVELS OF BOTH PARTIES PERSONAL POWER AND WEALTH HAVE BECOME THE CENTERPOST OF WHAT THEY TRY TO DO TO US.


    I HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US TONIGHT AS WE DISCUSS WHAT 2016 HOLDS FOR US AND WHAT IT MEANS AND HOW WE CAN IMPACT THE NATION THIS YEAR.  WE'LL DISCUSS TAXES, NATIONAL DEFENSE AND SECURITY, IMMIGRATION, COMMON CORE, GUN CONTROL, GLOBAL WARMING, HEALTHCARE AND AS MUCH MORE AS TIME WILL ALLOW. BE THERE.

    REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THIS SITUATION IN FLORIDA DIRECTLY IMPACTS YOU OR NOT, IT IS IMPORTANT TO PAY ATTENTION, FOR WHEREVER THERE IS CHEAP AND RAW LAND, PRECIOUS OR NOT, THERE IS SOMEONE BUILDING POLITICAL CONNECTIONS TO DEVELOP IT AND OFTEN IT IS NOT IN OUR BEST INTEREST.  THIS IS HAPPENING ALL OVER AMERICA.

    PLUM CREEK: THE REST OF THE STORY (PART 3)

    in Lifestyle

    TONIGHT AT 7 ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WE'LL CONTINUE WITH THE PLUM CREEK DEVELOPMENT STORY IN THE THIRD INSTALLMENT.  WE'LL MOVE TO A DISCUSSION OF THE UNINTENDED AND NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES THAT NEIGHBORS TO THE AMBITIOUS PROJECT WILL FACE AND HOW THEIR LIVES CAN LITERALLY BE TORN ABOUT.  THE DISCUSSION YOU WILL HEAR IS A PART OF GEORGE SIBLEY'S EXCELLENT AUDIO PODCAST CREATED IN PART BY SUPPORT FROM THE SIERRA CLUB.  AND I MUST ADMIT THAT THIS HUMBLE HOST IS INCLUDED AS ONE OF THE PARTICIPANTS SINCE i ALSO LIVE CLOSE BY THE WHERE THE ACTION WILL BE.


    THE MAIN POINT BEING MADE IS THAT THE ENTIRE PROJECT IS OVERKILL, TRYING TO FORCE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW CITY IN LOW, OFTEN FLOODED LAND WITH NO INFRASTRUCTURE.  AND SINCE PLUM CREEK HAS MADE IT CLEAR THAT THEY WILL NOT DO ANYTHING TO ACTUALLY DEVELOP IT THEMSELVES, THE LOCAL TAXPAYERS, INCLUDING THOSE OF US DIRECTLY IMPACTED, WILL PAY THE PRICE BOTH IN TAXES AND LOSS OF QUALITY OF LIFE. DOES THE COUNTY GOVERNMENT CARE?  ONLY TIME WILL TELL AND THAT WILL COME IN NEXT WEEK'S MASSIVE PUBLIC HEARINGS.


    WE HOPE YOU'LL TUNE IN FOR WHEREVER YOU LIVE, DEVELOPMENTS OF THIS TYPE ARE BEING PLANNED THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES.  I GUESS PEOPLE WILL FINALLY WAKE UP WHEN THE TREES ARE GONE, THE SPRAWL HAS LEFT BEHIND BOARDED UP COMMUNITIES AND WE'LL WONDER WHAT HAPPENED.  SO PAY ATTENTION, YOU MIGHT LEARN A THING OR TWO THAT YOU CAN DO AS WELL.

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE: ALERT! WILL FLORIDA PAVE OVER HER NATURAL BEAUTY?

    in Lifestyle

    TONIGHT NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WILL TAKE A SHORT BREAK FROM CHRISTMAS PROGRAMMING TO BROADCAST A SPECIAL ALERT TO FLORIDIANS CONCERNED ABOUT MAINTAINING OUR STATE'S NATURAL BEAUTY.  THE FLORIDA DOT IS PROPOSING AN AMBITIOUS PLAN TO LINK MAJOR METRO AREAS TOGETHER EASILY AND QUICKLY. THE PROBLEM IS, ALL OF THE PROPOSALS APPEAR TO FAVOR THE CREATION OF MASSIVE NEW HIGHWAYS AND RAILWAYS RIGHT THROUGH THE LAST BASTION OF OLD FLORIDA, THE INNER SPINE OF THE STATE.  THIS BROACASTER ATTENDED ONE SUCH MEETING IN OCALA THIS WEEK AS A CITIZEN OBSERVER WHERE LOTS OF LIP SERVICE WAS GIVEN TO THE COUNTRYSIDE YET RELEASES AFTER THE FIRST TASK FORCE MEETING SEEM TO INDICATE THE DIE IS ALREADY CAST. 


    WE AT NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE ARE NOT OPPOSED TO TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS, BUT WE ARE ABSOLUTELY OPPOSED TO MASSIVE NEW AND HIGHLY EXPENSIVE PROJECTS WHICH MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE WILL LEAD TO THE URBANIZATION OF ALL POINTS BETWEEN DESTINATIONS.  AFTER ALL, FLORIDA'S HISTORY IS FILLED WITH LAND DEALS AND SWINDLES WHICH HAVE CREATED MANY PROBLEMS THAT ARE JUST NOW GETTING WORSE. iF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL PROBABLY COME, BUT IS THAT WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT?  VICTIMS OF THE RUSH TO GROW AND GROW AND GROW ARE ALWAYS THOSE WITHOUT DEEP POCKETS OR POLITICAL CLOUT TO FIGHT.  AND REMEMBER, MOST OF THE JOBS AND SUPPOSED PROSPERITY GOES TO THOSE BROUGHT IN TO FILL THE VOID, ONCE AGAIN PUTTING EXISTING CITIZENRY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PRIORITY CHAIN AND PITTED AGAINST THE POLITICAL CLASS.


    WE'LL TALK ABOUT THIS TONIGHT BUT, SINCE IT IS THE CHRISTMAS SEASON, OUR MUSIC WILL ALL BE IN THE SPIRIT OF THE SEASON.  THEN, IN FUTURE DECEMBER BROADCASTS WE WILL REVERT BACK TO THE PEACE AND SERENITY OF CHRISTMAS PROGRAMMING. I HOPE YOU FIND TONIGHT'S SHOW OF INTEREST, FOLKS, AS THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNNG.

    COMMON CORE W/MEG NORRIS PLUS A LOOK INSIDE THE REAL CUBA

    in Lifestyle

    Here at North Florida Writer Live we’re sure that the topic for Wednesday night is, at best, confusing to understand.  But we’re fortunate to have our frequent guest, Meg Norris of Opt Out Georgia, bring us some exciting news about what is going on in Georgia to push for legislation to dramatically change the Common Core disaster that we see all over this great land.  Meg also informed me about a businessman who has great knowledge of the real Cuba, Alex Gimenez, who will tell us about the plight of the poor Cuban people.  An American by birth born to parents of Cuban and Argentinian descent, he is concerned about what we don’t know about Cuba.  While we are opening doors and lifting the embargo against Cuba per the President’s executive actions, the Cuban people are living under an internal embargo courtesy of the Castro regime.  The poor citizens basically own nothing and serve as serfs for the state.  In the words of the late and great Paul Harvey, Alex brings “the rest of the story”.


    Alex is the father of two grown children and he is also very concerned about the educational system here in America and in his hometown of Atlanta.  So we’ll also get his take on Common Core and what a good businessman with international experience, not a crony-capitalist as a lapdog to the state, thinks about the process and what should be done about it.


    It should be a great discussion.  The show goes live Wednesday night at 7.  You won’t want to miss this one.  See you then.

    PLUM CREEK TIMBER: THE REST OF THE STORY (PART ONE)

    in Lifestyle

    ALACHUA COUNTY, FL COMMISSIONERS WILL SOON DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT THEY WILL GRANT PLUM CREEK TIMBER APPROVAL TO BUILD A "CITY IN THE SWAMP" ON ENVIRONMENTALLY SENSITIVE LAND.  THE REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST HAS CONDUCTED A MASTERFUL CAMPAIGN TO PIT GROUPS OF PEOPLE IN THE COUNTY AGAINST ONE ANOTHER BY PROMISING THE "WORLD" TO SOME AND IGNORING THE CONCERNS OF OTHERS.   


    THIS SHOW WILL BEGIN THE AIRING BY NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE OF FIVE INSTALLMENTS WHICH WILL PROVIDE, AS THE GREAT PAUL HARVEY SAID, THE REST OF THE STORY. THEY WERE PRODUCED FOR THE SIERRA CLUB BY GEORGE SIBLEY, A TALENTED PRESENTER WHO INTERVIEWED A NUMBER OF CITIZENS WHO HAVE HUGE CONCERNS ABOUT THIS ACTION.  NOW I DON'T AGREE WITH MANY OF THE ACTIONS THAT THE SIERRA CLUB SUPPORTS, ON THIS ONE THEY ARE "SPOT ON". THIS BROADCASTER IS PLEASED TO HAVE BEEN ASKED TO PARTICIPATE AND WAS INCLUDED IN THE INTERVIEWS.


    JOIN US FOR THE FIRST OF FIVE PRESENTATIONS AS WE DISCUSS HOW FLORIDA COULD BE LOSING ITS VERY LIFEBLOOD, THE PRECIOUS AQUIFER AND THE UNQUE SURROUNDINGS THAT MADE FLORIDA SUCH A SPECIAL PLACE. OH, DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH IS NATURAL AND CAN BE VERY GOOD, BUT UNBRIDLED GROWTH WITHOUT CONCERN FOR THE CONSEQUENCES IS VERY DANGEROUS, BOTH HERE IN FLORIDA AND THROUGHOUT THIS GREAT LAND.  THE SHOW WILL BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND FOLLOWING THE LIVE BROADCAST ON WEDNESDAY.  WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US.

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE: ARE THE RICH ALWAYS RICHER?

    in Lifestyle

    We all know the old saying, "The rich get richer and the poor get poorer" and many just take it for granted.   After all, we are bombarded constantly with politicians talking about the greed of the rich and how they need to pay their fair share.  But, of course, what is sometimes true is often not true; it depends entirely on the circumstances and the individual.  Any maybe, just maybe, the problem is really just how do we measure richness.

    Being that we are in the Advent season anticipating the approach of Christmas, now is a good time to discuss what constitutes being rich.  We need to do so at this time of year since what we believe in this matter plays such a dramatic part of our Christian faith.

    The Reverend Adrian Rogers offers some very good advice in this area and his teachings will form the basis of tonight's North Florida Writer Live programming.  Since it's Christmastime, the show will be devoted all month long to Christian values, our belief in the risen Christ and our longing for His return to save a troubled world.  Rev. Rogers, who passed away ten years ago, was an eloquent spokesman for Christian values and living under the purview of the Holy Bible.  And even though he is no longer with us, his messages can still be heard frequently today on the Bible Broadcasting Network (BBNRadio.com).

    Our show will consist of a short scripture reading, wonderful seasonal music, a message based on some of the words of a great preacher and teacher, and prayer.  We will also be using that wonderful song by Becky Kelley, Where's the Line to See Jesus? as our theme for the entire month.

    Won't you join us?  We'll be live at 9:30 on Wednesday night, afterwards available on demand 24/7.
