    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE THURSDAY: THE ROAD TO HEAVEN OR THE HIGHWAY TO HELL?

    in Lifestyle

    FLORIDA IS UNDER A PUSH FOR OVERREACHING DEVELOPMENT NOT SEEN SINCE THE SALE OF SWAMP LAND AS HOMESITES IN THE EARLY 1920'S.  THE DRIVING FORCE IS GOVERNOR SCOTT AND HIS CRONY-CAPITALIST BUSINESS BUDDIES AND THEIR QUEST FOR EXCESS PROFITS ON THE BACKS OF THE GOOD CITIZENS AND HOME OWNERS. LOOK, WE GET IT. DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH WILL ALWAYS HAPPEN, BUT DO THEY HAVE TO HAPPEN AT THE TOTAL COST OF THE SWAMPS, SPRINGS AND THE TOTAL LIFESTYLE OF RURAL RESIDENTS?  NO, THEY DON'T BUT THE CURRENT PUSH MOVING INTO NORTH FLORIDA IF LEFT UNCHECKED WILL RESULT IN A MIAMI NORTH OR WORSE.  IF THAT HAPPENS, IT WON'T MATTER HOW MANY NEW RESIDENTS AND CORPORATIONS HE BRINGS TO THE STATE WHEN THE WELL RUNS DRY.  WE'LL ALL BE LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME.


    MATT SURRENCY, THE MAYOR OF THE SMALL CITY OF HAWTHORNE WILL BE MY GUEST AS WE TRY TO FIND A MIDDLE GROUND AND SOME COMMON SENSE SOLUTIONS ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE THURSDAY NIGHT AT 9.  THIS IS A PROBLEM NOT JUST IN FLORIDA BUT EVERYWHERE, SO WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US AS WE TRY TO TURN A WIN-LOSE INTO A WIN-WIN SITUATION.  HOPING TO KEEP YOU INFORMED OF WHAT IS GOING ON A REAL TOPSY-TURVY WORLD.

    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.

    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.

    in Lifestyle

    THANKSGIVING IS ALWAYS A SPECIAL TIME. FAMILY AND FRIENDS GATHER TOGETHER FOR GOOD FOOD AND GOOD CHEER, USUALLY WITH A SIDE OF FOOTBALL AND A FOLLOWING NAP. BUT IT IS MUCH MORE THAN THAT FOR IT IS ATIME WHEN WE CELEBRATE THE RELATIONSHIP OF AMERICA WITH GOD BY THANKING HIM FOR ALL THAT HE HAS GIVEN US.

WHAT'S MORE, IF WE DEVOTE OUR ENERGIES TO THE SPIRITUAL AWAKENING OF HIS LOVE, WE WILL PUT MATERIALISM IN THE BACKGROUND AND FOCUS ON THE REAL CHRIST, THE ONE WHO GAVE US THE ULTIMATE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE IF WE ONLY DECIDE TO ACCEPT IT.  REMEMBER, CHRISTMAS PRESENTS COME AND GO BUT ETERNITY WITH JESUS CHRIST LASTS FOREVER.
