    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE: IS IT THE "TRUMP TRAIN" VS THE CRUZ-KASICH CABAL?

    in Lifestyle

    THURSDAY ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER WE'LL ONCE AGAIN TALK REPUBLICAN POLITICS. MY REGULAR GUEST MARK COLLIER WILL JOIN ME AS WE TRY TO UNDERSTAND IFTHE UNLIKELY ALLIANCE BETWEEN TED CRUZ AND JOHN KASICH IS REAL AND POSSIBLY A GAME CHANGER OR IS IT ALREADY FIZZLING.  DONALD TRUMP, OF COURSE, HAD A BIG NIGHT TUESDAY IN THE NORTHEAST, SWEEPING ALL FIVE PRIMARY CONTESTS BY HUGE MARGINS.  BUT THE NEXT BIG TEST COMES UP NEXT TUESDAY IN INDIANA, A MUST WIN STATE FOR CRUZ BUT POLLS CURRENTLY SHOW TRUMP AHEAD.  AND WHILE AFTER ESTABLISHING A QUESTIONABLE RELATIONSHIP WITH CRUZ, KASICH THEN SAID THAT HE WOULD STILL ASK HIS VOTERS IN THE HOOSIER STATE TO VOTE FOR HIM ANYWAY. WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?  BUT AFTER ALL IT'S THE WORLD OF POLITICS, FOLKS, IN A VERY UNUSUAL YEAR SO DON'T BE SURPRISED AT ANYTHING THAT COULD HAPPEN. AND WHATEVER THE END GAME, LIBERTY LOVERS OF ALL PERSUASIONS NEED TO COME TOGETHER IN THE END TO INSURE THAT HILLARY CLINTON DOES NOT BECOME PRESIDENT.  MORE TAXES, LESS FREEDOM AND EDICTS FROM A MORALLY BANKRUPT PRESIDENT WOULD BE THE END RESULT.  WE AS A NATION LIKELY CAN'T SURVIVE MORE OF WHAT WE'VE HAD FOR MUCH OF THE LAST GENERATION. THIS WE ALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND. THE SHOW GOES LIVE AT 10 AM AND THEN WILL REMAIN AVAILABLE ON DEMAND. HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US.

    A NORTH FLORIDA WRITER WARNING: BEWARE OF THE REPUBLICAN ESTABLISHMENT!

    in Lifestyle

    TED CRUZ WINS IN WISCONSIN AND SETS DONALD TRUMP BACK A BIT, YET THE RACE FOR THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION IS FAR FROM OVER. REGARDLESS OF YOUR FAVORITE, THE SENATOR IS TO BE CONGRATULATED FOR A WELL ORGANIZED PRIMARY WIN. AND NOW WHAT SHOULD CONCERN US MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE IS WHAT THE REPUBLICAN ESTABLISMENT IS UP TO. SINCE WE KNOW THAT THEY DON'T LIKE EITHER OF THE TWO LEADERS IN THE RACE, ARE THEY SETTING UP A DOUBLE CROSS, ARE THEY COOPTING A CANDIDATE, OR IS THEIR EVEN SOMETHING MORE DEVIOUS COMING UP?  AFTER ALL, NEVER FORGET WHAT THEY DID TO YOUNG CHRIS MCDANIEL IN MISSISSIPPI IN 2014 AND THAT WAS JUST A SENATE SEAT.  A BRIGHT YOUNG MAN WAS SMEARED BY THE PARTY THAT HE HAD SUPPORTED SINCE HE WAS 13 YEARS OLD BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T WANT A CONSERVATIVE TO REPLACE AGING THAD COCHRAN.  SO NEVER DOUBT WHAT THEY'LL TRY TO DO IN A PRESIDENTIAL RACE WHEN THE TWO LEADERS DO NOT FIT THEIR MOLD OF "GOING ALONG TO GET ALONG".  REGULAR GUEST MARK COLLIER WILL JOIN NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE THURSDAY AFTERNOON AS WE DISCUSS THE UNFOLDING DRAMA  OF THE ELECTION CYCLE AND WHAT IT MEANS TO CONSERVATISM. WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US FOR A TIMELY DISCUSSION.

    North Florida Writer Live: I-75 Relief Task Force Update: Meeting #4

    in Lifestyle

    Friday afternoon at 3 pm North Florida Writer Live will present an overview of the happenings at the I-75 Task Force meeting on April 6th at the Villages, a meeting generated by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) at the request of Governor Scott and his Secretary of Transportation.  Yours truly was one of the group of private citizens from the six county study area who spent the day observing and listening to the Task Force discussion of interstate roadway needs before offering public comments on the matter. There are a number of issues which are troubling in the overall process and this session was by far the most active session since the process started last December. For the first time since the sessions started, a number of the state-appointed panel members had serious questions and reservations about the process as it unfolded.  The panel even put into the mix for consideration the option of no new roadway at all, just modification of existing roads. We will talk about this matter, offer comments on a few of the key moments during the day and take a few calls if time allows and we hope that local area listeners will pass the information on to others in the way of possible road changes. It's your state and your land, folks, so get involved, be informed and speak up. We hope you will tune in for the show.

    South Florida Attorney James "Randy" Ackley- Foreclosure is a Humanitarian Issue

    in Finance

    Over the past 25 years Randy has devoted his life to disaster relief and humanitarian aid having been employed at the American Red Cross and in charge of Presbyterian Global Disaster Assistance.   Randy has been on the ground when Hurricanes like Andrew and Katrina struck, responded to tornados and floods, faced armed conflict in Kosovo, economic collapse in Bulgaria, the Indian Ocean tsunami in South Asia and earthquakes in Haiti and Japan- all while keeping his membership active in the Florida BAR.


    When Randy says he can help save your home- he means just that.  Randy has helped save homes that are in the paths of Tsunamis, volcanos, hurricanes and wars- and even in more mundane venues- but equally dangerous areas- like court rooms.


    Randy has stated that home losses are the consequence of bad actions by banks that caused families to lose their homes.  Randy Ackley believes that if the laws on the books are enforced, families can fight back and avoid losing their homes altogether. While many people may still perceive foreclosure as similar to that of our grandparents’ day, Randy points out that many people now realize that contemporary foreclosure is often the result of failings, or outright fraudulent behavior, of the lenders and the industry, and that these are very different circumstances from the foreclosures of the past. 


    If you are in Florida and are looking for help with your foreclosure, especially your foreclosure trial, call James "Randy" Ackley at  561-594-5671 for a FREE CONSULTATION.
