    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.

    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: 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.

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

    in Lifestyle

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WILL PRESENT PART TWO OF PLUM CREEK TIMBER: THE REST OF THE STORY, FEATURING GEORGE SIBLEY'S PRODUCTION FOR THE SIERRA CLUB OF PLUM PUDDING ON FRIDAY.  IT WILL CONTINUE THE EFFORTS TO QUESTION A MAJOR DEVELOPMENT BY A LARGE REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST IN FRAGILE, WET AND RURAL NORTH FLORIDA. CITIZENS BECOME AWARE OF THE ISSUE AND BEGIN TO ORGANIZE TO IMPACT WHAT IS UNFOLDING. WILL THEY BE SUCCESSFUL IN ULTIMATELY ACCOMPLISHING SOMETHING POSITIVE FOR LOCAL RESIDENTS OF THE AREA OR WILL THEIR EFFORTS BE TO NO AVAIL? WELL, WE'LL JUST HAVE TO WAIT TO SEE HOW IT ENDS UP.


    THIS IS NOT AN INDICTMENT OF DEVELOPMENT, FOR WE ALL KNOW THAT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND JOB GROWTH IS NECESSARY FOR AN ECONOMY TO FUNCTION EFFECTIVELY, BUT THERE IS A CATCH WITH THE APPROACH IF IT ISN'T TEMPERED TO A DEGREE. WHEN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICALLY DESTROYS THE NEARBY NEIGHBORS, IT'S NOT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AT ALL. IT'S ECONOMIC DISASTER.


    THE SHOW WILL RUN AT 6 PM (ET) FRIDAY AND THEN BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND 24/7.  WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US.

    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.

    EP216 Historical Pirate Fiction Author Ozgur Sahin joins Kori on the Back Porch

    in Books

    Ozgur K. Sahin is an award-winning independent author and life coach currently living in Minnesota. He has a background in astrophysics, consciousness development, and history.  He is currently editing the second book in his Brethren of the Spanish Main historical pirate fiction series, and has written and blogged about narcissism and personal/social development.


    The Wrath of Brotherhood


    After learning of his sister’s death at the hands of pirates, successful merchant Captain Roy Toppings sails to the Caribbean on a misguided mission of vengeance against the man who failed to protect her: her Spanish widower, Pablo Francisco.


    In the climate of the Restoration-era Caribbean colonies, where scheming and stealth could yield a prize as readily as boldness and firepower, Roy's vendetta lands him and his small but talented privateer crew in the middle of political intrigue and a deadly invasion in the West Indies as the nations of Europe struggle to consolidate power in anticipation of new monarchs in England and France.


    When Spain prepares a strike that could jeopardize all other commercial interests in the Caribbean, Roy must risk losing his chance at vengeance to fight for his nation and his fellow Brethren of the Coast.
