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.
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 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.

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.

NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE CONTINUES ITS PRESENTATION OF GEORGE SIBLEY'S PRODUCTION TONIGHT. PART FOUR OF PLUM CREEK TIMBER: THE REST OF THE STORY IS DEVOTED TO THE LAND AND THE WATER IN EAST ALACHUA COUNTY AND WHY THE PLUM CREEK DEVELOPMENT PLAN WILL HAVE SUCH A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON OUR CONTINUED AVAILABILITY OF CLEAN WATER AND A HEALTHY WATERSHED. WE WILL INCLUDE DISCUSSION WITH A NUMBER OF TECHNICAL EXPERTS ASSOCIATED WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA AND THE SHOW WILL LEAD US TOWARD THE UPCOMING NEXT AND FINAL PHASE OF THE POLITICAL STORM THAT CAN NO LONGER BE AVOIDED.
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.
THE SHOW GOES LIVE AT 7:30 PM (ET) AND THEN WILL BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND. WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US.
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.

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.
