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. DESPITE THE HARD TIMES THAT SOME OF US FACE NOW, WE ARE STILL SO MUCH BETTER OFF THAN MOST OF THE WORLD AND WE NEED TO EXPRESS OUR THANKS TO HIM FOR ALL THAT WE HAVE.
ON THIS YEAR'S RADIO CELEBRATION I WILL START A TRADITION OF READING ONE OF GEORGE WASHINGTON'S THANKSGIVING PROCLAMATIONS AS A CENTERPIECE OF THE SHOW. IT IS DONE SO TO SHOW THE CLEAR AND IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE OF AMERICA'S FOUNDERS RECOGNIZING THE CENTRAL PRESENCE OF A LOVING GOD. WE WILL ALSO HAVE SOME SEASONAL CHRISTIAN MUSIC AND A BRIEF PRAYER OF THANKS, AND THEN WE'LL TURN THE CORNER TO THE FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT AND THE BEGINNING OF THE CHRISTMAS SEASON AND WHAT IT REPRESENTS.
I HOPE YOU'LL TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO JOIN ME, NORTH FLORIDA WRITER, AS WE THANK GOD FOR OUR BLESSINGS. SHOULD YOU MISS THE LIVE SHOW ON THANKSGIVING EVE AT 9:30 PM, IT WILL BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND UPON CONCLUSION ON DEMAND 24/7. LOOKING FORWARD TO IT, FOLKS.
WE AMERICANS ARE A VERY MATERIALIST LOT AND AT NO TIME OF YEAR DO WE DISPLAY THIS TRAIT MORE THAN AT CHRISTMASTIME. BUT SHOULDN'T WE PUT MORE OF AN EFFORT INTO USING OUR CHRISTIAN BELIEFS FOR THE TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS? SERIOUSLY, ISN'T IT TIME FOR US TO SHOW IN OURSELVES THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS IN ALL THAT WE DO THIS YEAR? IT'S WHAT THE LORD REALLY WANTS FROM US AND IT HAS MANY ADDITIONAL BENEFITS. IT PUTS US IN CLOSER TOUCH WITH HIM, BRIGHTENS AND STRENGTHENS OUR FAITH AND OUR HOPES AND SERVES TO USE US AS MISSIONARIES TO THE UNFOUND FLOCK IN ALL THAT WE DO. 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.
TONIGHT ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WE'LL TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE CAN DO TO SHOW OUR SPIRIT IN OUR DAILY LIVES AND THE IMPACT IT WILL HAVE ON OTHERS. HE'S THE REASON FOR THE SEASON AND WE NEED TO PUT HIM FIRST.
THE SHOW STARTS AT 9:30 AND WILL THEN BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND 24/7. WE'RE IN THE FIRST WEEK OF THE ADVENT SEASON WHICH WILL CULMINATE IN THE ARRIVAL OF THE CHRIST CHILD WHILE WE ALSO ANTICIPATE HIS COMING AGAIN AT A TIME THAT ONLY HE KNOWS TO RULE THE WORLD. LET THE WAY WE LIVE BE AN EXAMPLE TO ALL THROUGHOUT THIS JOYOUS SEASON AND BEYOND. HOPE YOU'LL TUNE IN.
WE AMERICANS ARE A STRANGE LOT. WHEN WE FACE A CRISIS WE ARE SLOW TO MOBILIZE BUT ONCE WE DO WE CAN ACCOMPLISH AMAZING THINGS. NOW IS ONE OF THOSE TIMES, FOLKS. AMERICA IS ON THE ROPES AND WE CAN'T DEPEND ON ANY POLITICIAN, REPUBLICAN, DEMOCRAT OR INDEPENDENT TO GET THE JOB DONE. NO LONGER CAN WE SPEND OUR SPARE TIME ON THE NFL, HOLLYWOOD OR THE KARDASHIANS. NO, IT'S TIME TO MOBILIZE OUR ENERGY AND OUR TALENT TO SET THE STANDARD FOR THE FUTURE OF AMERICA. POLITICIANS CAN AND WILL DO LITTLE UNLESS WE PROD AND PUSH THEM TO ACTION WHICH DOES WHAT WE WANT IT TO DO. ISN'T SAVING AMERICA WORTH IT?
ON THIS EDITION OF NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE MY REGULAR CONTRIBUTOR MARK COLLIER WILL JOIN ME AS WE TALK ABOUT THE ECONOMY, THE IMPACT OF IMMIGRATION, THE MYTH OF FREE TRADE, OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM AND THE COMMON CORE TRAGEDY, THE MILITARY, OUR SOCIAL ORDER AND OUR MORAL CODE AND MANY OTHER AREAS THAT HAVE PLAYED SUCH A MAJOR PART IN OUR DEVELOPMENT, BOTH GOOD AND BAD. LET'S START A CONVERSATION THAT WILL LEAD TO HER GREATNESS AGAIN. IT'S UP TO US, FOLKS.
THE SHOW GOES LIVE AT 9:00 PM AND WILL BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND 24/7 SHORTLY THEREAFTER. WE'LL TRY TO TAKE A FEW CALLS DURING THE SECOND HALF HOUR, JUST PLEASE KEEP YOUR COMMENTS BRIEF AND SUBJECT RELATED. HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US.
AT THE 11TH HOUR ON THE 11TH DAY OF THE 11TH MONTH OF 1918, THE WAR TO END ALL WARS ENDED. INITIALLY NAMED ARMISTICE DAY, ITS NAME WAS CHANGED FOLLOWING THE SECOND WORLD WAR, PROVING THAT WE MUST ALWAYS BE VIGILANT TO TYRANNY IN THE WORLD. AS LONG AS EVIL EXISTS ON THIS EARTH, WAR WILL UNFORTUNATELY BE FACED BY MANKIND. ON WEDNESDAY WE HONOR OUR VETERANS OF ALL MILITARY SERVICES, LIVING AND DEAD, WHO SERVED. FROM VALLEY FORGE, TO GETTYSBURG, VERDUN, IWO JIMA, NORMANDY, THE CHOSEN RESERVOIR, HUE, IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN, AMERICANS HAVE DONE WHAT WAS ASKED OF THEM, NO MATTER THE RISK THEY FACED. MANY DIED, MANY MORE WERE WOUNDED, AND THE LUCKY ONES RETURNED INTACT EXCEPT FOR THE HORRIFIC MEMORIES OF WHAT THEY SAW. HONOR THEM, APPRECIATE THEM, AND VOW THAT WE WILL REQUIRE OUR GOVERNMENT TO TAKE CARE OF THEM IN A WAY BEFITTING OF THEIR SACRIFICE. THEY HAVE EARNED WHATEVER IT TAKES.
JOIN US FOR WORDS AND MUSIC AS WE HONOR THEM TUESDAY NIGHT, THE EVE OF VETERANS DAY, ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE. THE SHOW WILL START AT 9:30 PM AND BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND 24/7 UPON COMPLETION. GOD BLESS THEM ALL.
WE AMERICANS ARE SOMETIMES VERY STRANGE. WE TALK ABOUT THE "THINGS AND THE STUFF" THAT WE WANT BUT WE SELDOM LOOK DEEPER IN TERMS OF CULTURE, BELIEFS AND WHERE WE EXPECT OUR LIFE TO TAKE US. WITH A BIG ELECTION COMING UP NEXT YEAR, DON'T YOU THINK ITS TIME TO THINK ABOUT WHAT WE SEEK AS A COUNTRY BEFORE WE TRY TO PICK A NEW LEADER TO FULFILL OUR WISHES? DO WE WANT TO CONTINUE TO LEAVE IT UP TO THE POLITICIANS TO DETERMINE OUR WAY? WOULDN'T IT BE A GOOD IDEA FOR EACH OF US TO TRY AND INFLUENCE THE PROCESS ACCORDING TO OUR HOPES AND DREAMS? AFTER ALL, THEY'VE DONE A PRETTY GOOD JOB OF MESSING THINGS UP SO FAR HAVEN'T THEY?
HOPEFULLY, TONIGHT'S SHORT TAKE WILL GET EACH OF US THINKING ABOUT OUR ROLE AS AMERICANS, THE GOOD FORTUNE THAT WE HAVE TO LIVE HERE AND WHERE WE WANT TO SEE OUR FUTURE. ITS A BIG TOPIC AND WE'LL ONLY TOUCH THE SURFACE BUT EACH OF US NEEDS TO START OUR OWN THINKING SOMEWHERE. NOW'S AS GOOD A TIME AS ANY, DON'T YOU THINK?
JOIN US LIVE AT 9 TONIGHT ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE. AS ALWAYS, THE SHOW WILL BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND UPON CONCLUSION.

A listener on the TTA Facebook page recently asked Seth Andrews to respond to a "Letter to the Editor" posted in Seth's hometown paper, the Tulsa World. Usually, as skeptics, we let these kinds of posts slide, because they often don't accomplish much and/or they generate more trouble that they're worth.
But in this case, Seth responded, and this show chronicles the exchange, the fallout, and the curious tactics of the indignant commenters who couldn't prove the god they were defending.
Yes...it's a rant. (Gonna be one of those shows.) Enjoy.

TONIGHT NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WILL TACKLE THE QUESTION, WHY DOES THE REPUBLICAN ESTABLISHMENT NEED TO BE REPLACED?
IN RECENT YEARS, THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS LOST ELECTIONS LARGELY DUE TO LACK OF SPARK IN THE PARTY'S BASE. FOLLOWING THE REAGAN REVOLUTION AND THE LAST TWO ELECTION LANDSLIDES DUE TO CONSERVATIVE AND BLUE COLLAR SUPPORT, THE PARTY HAS FALLEN INTO A RUT WHERE THE ESTABLISHMENT THINKS IT HAS INDEPENDENT APPROVAL AUTHORITY TO NOMINATE A MUSHY, MILQUETOAST CANDIDATE. EVEN WITH THE TWO VICTORIES BY GEORGE W. BUSH, THE PARTY MOVED DRAMATICALLY AWAY FROM THE PRINCIPLES OF REAGAN AND WON TWO CLOSE ELECTIONS WHICH SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN CLOSE AT ALL. AND SINCE THEN, THE LIKES OF JOHN MCCAIN AND MITT ROMNEY, WHILE GOOD MEN, FAILED TO EXCITE A BASE WHICH WAS LOOKING FOR SO MUCH MORE.
TONIGHT WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT 2016 AND THE WAY THE ESTABLISHMENT IS TRYING TO STOP THE INSURGENTS, MOSTLY OUTSIDERS, WHO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE THE WAY PARTY BUSINESS IS DONE. DONALD TRUMP AND TED CRUZ OFFER THE MOST DRAMATIC EXAMPLES OF A PUSH FOR AN OVERHAUL OF THE PARTY WITH BEN CARSON ALSO IN THAT CATEGORY. AS JEB BUSH FALTERS AND THE ESTABLISHMENT TRIES TO CREATE A SWELL OF SUPPORT FOR MARCO RUBIO, A MAN WHO HAS ALREADY BETRAYED THE THINGS THAT GOT HIM ELECTED, TRUMP AND CRUZ OFFER THE BEST HOPE FOR REAL CHANGE AND REAL RESPONSE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. AND WITH TRUMP'S ABILITY TO SHOWCASE ISSUES, WE FIND OURSELVES AT LONG LAST DEALING WITH THE ISSUES THAT THE PEOPLE ARE CONCERNED WITH AND THIS CLEARLY UPSETS THE ESTABLISHMENT AND THEIR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE MASTERS.
THE SHOW STARTS AT 9:30 AND THEN WILL BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND 24/7. I HOPE YOU WILL TUNE IN TO OUR PREVIEW OF THINGS TO COME.
