    REBROADCAST Cuba: The Castro Crime Family's Embargo Against it's Own People

    in Politics

    You've heard of the external embargo against Cuba.But you never heard of Cuba's own internal embargo against it's own people. An embargo that makes Cuba no different than a plantation or company town where nothing belongs to anyone nor will it ever. Cubans are little more than chattel property paid in scrip. Alex Gimenez, the son of Cuban immigrants, documents the reality that still exists inside Cuba. A reality hidden by the Cuban regime, and ignored by the US media and special interests pressuring for investing in Cuba. Don't miss this opportunity to hear (and call in (773) 897-6524) during your early morning drive time.

    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.

    RYAN ROCKS IT! with Ed Johnson & Beverly Beveridge - Trip to CUBA

    in Radio

    Ryan Rocks It Asbury Park Style with Former Mayor of Asbury Park, NJ, Ed Johnson and Woman about town, Beverly Beveridge, Public Relations Director, FMC Productions, NYC.  I am so excited to have these two very special personal friends of mine on my show once again.  I have interviewed them both individually in the past and what we like to do is have FUN, FUN, FUN.  So tune in to hear all about the "People-to-People Cultural Exchange Trip to CUBA" that was planned and realized by these two fantastic people.  Of course to make such a trip possible Ed and Beverly had the welcomed assistance of many others plus a few talented United States musicians who completed the group to make this special historic trip.


    Per Beverly, On Wednesday, 12/16/2015 an adventurous 14 member delegation met in Miami, Florida after many challenging months of planning to go to CUBA.  The mission was to attend and perform at the "31 ST Annual Jazz Festival in Havana."  On Thursday night, the group touched down into a time warp at the HAVANA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT via Eastern Airlines # 737, with the AMERICAN FLAG on the plane. This plane landed on the 1 ST Anniversary of renewed diplomatic relations with Cuba.  Their group stayed at the beautiful Miramar Section (aka "Embassy Row") of Havana just minutes from all of the excitement of the Old Town.


    To hear all about this most historic event from the originators of the trip kindly call the guest line 213.943.3559 or go to blogtalkradio.com/ryan-rocks-it-asbury-park-style.  Sit back and enjoy live talk radio at it's BEST!  


    Peace, Nancy Ryan Host of " RYAN ROCKS IT ASBURY PARK STYLE".
