HERE IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA, GOVERNOR RICK SCOTT HAS ILLUSIONS OF GRANDEUR. AMONG HIS OTHER "DREAMS" IS HIS PLAN TO TURN FLORIDA INTO A MEGA-PORT FOR OCEAN SHIPPING TO AND FROM THE ORIENT. HE THINKS THE OPENING OF THE WIDER PANAMA CANAL WILL MAKE THIS A CINCH AND WANTS TO HANDLE THE HUGE NEW CLASS OF PANAMAX SHIPS, INCLUDING POST-PANAMAX AND NEW PANAMAX AT HIS PORTS, INCLUDING JACKSONVILLE AND TAMPA. IT IS A MAJOR COMPONENT OF HIS REASONING FOR BUILDING A NEW HIGHWAY NETWORK BETWEEN TAMPA AND JACKSONVILLE.
A NUMBER OF MAJOR PROBLEMS, HOWEVER, STAND IN HIS WAY. FOREMOST AND OF IMMEDIATE CONCERN IS THE HUGE DOWNTURN OF ASIAN OCEAN GOING SHIPMENTS. CHINA'S INDICES FOR EVALUATING OCEAN SHIPPING HIT A NEW LOW YESTERDAY, THE LOWEST IT HAS EVER BEEN SINCE CONTAINERIZED SHIPPING VOLUME MEASUREMENT WAS DEVELOPED. AND THIS MEANS THAT THE REVENUE IS REALLY NOT THERE TO CREATE NEW PORTS OF CALL; IT WILL BE DIFFICULT TO MAINTAIN FULL CAPACITY AT EXISTING PORTS AS WELL. AND EQUALLY IMPORTANT IS THE FACT THAT NEITHER JACKSONVILLE OR TAMPA IS CAPABLE OF PORT ENTRY BY THE HUGE NEW SHIPS. TAMPA ADMITS IT WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO HANDLE THE REALLY BIG VESSELS AND JACKSONVILLE'S ENTRY VIA THE ST. JOHNS RIVER WILL REQUIRE MAJOR DREDGING, DREDGING FOR WHICH THERE IS NO FUNDING AVAILABLE. OTHER PORTS HAVE PROBLEMS AS WELL AND WE'LL TAKE A LOOK AT THE OVERALL PICTURE TOMORROW AT 10 A.M.
CAN FLORIDA AFFORD THE PRICE FOR AN END RESULT THAT IS LIKELY NOT EVEN REALISTIC? AND DOES THE GOVERNOR EXPECT THE TAXPAYERS TO ASSUME THE HEAVY RISK OF PROJECTS THAT ARE HIGHLY SUSPECT FROM THE OUTSET? WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US WEDNESDAY MORNING ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE.
IT'S CRUNCH TIME IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WITH THE TOP TWO CANDIDATES, DONALD TRUMP, THE LEADER, AND TED CRUZ, STILL COMPETITIVE, GOING AT IT HOT AND HEAVY AS IS NORMAL IN POLITICS. BUT NEVER BEFORE HAS THE ANIMOSITY BETWEEN SUPPORTERS BEEN QUITE SO INTENSE AND ACTUALLY HATEFUL. SOCIAL MEDIA IS BRIMMING WITH SARCASM AND SOMETHING FAR BEYOND SNARK, AND THE HASH TAG #NEVER WITH THE OPPOSITION ATTACHED IS EVERYWHERE. NOW I'VE LOST SOCIAL MEDIA "FRIENDS" OVER THIS SINCE I FAVOR TRUMP BUT HAVE MADE IT CLEAR THAT IF CRUZ IS THE WINNER I'LL SUPPORT HIM WHOLEHEARTEDLY. UNFORTUNATELY, IT APPEARS THAT MILLIONS OUT THERE AREN'T WILLING TO FORGIVE AND FORGET WHEN THE BATTLE IS DONE AND IF THAT PLAYS OUT WE'LL BE GUARANTEED THE ELECTION OF HILLARY CLINTON, AN IDEOLOGUE WHO COULD VERY WELL PROVE TO BE MUCH MORE DAMAGING TO THE COUNTRY THAN OUR CURRENT PRESIDENT. AND THE REPUBLICAN ESTABLISHMENT, THE ONES WHO CREATED THE CURRENT PROBLEM IN THE FIRST PLACE, WOULD LIKELY BE PLEASED IF HILLARY IS ELECTED OVER EITHER TRUMP OR CRUZ. THEY, AFTER ALL, HAVE SHOWN REPEATEDLY THAT THE ONLY THING OF IMPORTANCE TO THE THEM IS MAINTAINING THEIR POSITIONS IN WASHINGTON.
WE'LL TALK ABOUT THE CURRENT STATE OF REPUBLICAN AFFAIRS TOMORROW EVENING ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE AND I'M SURE THERE ARE THOSE WHO WILL NOT CHANGE THEIR POSITION BUT I'M HOPING ENOUGH WILL TO AVOID A TOTAL CATASTROPHE TO THIS GREAT LAND. I TRULY BELIEVE THAT IF HILLARY IS ELECTED, THE CONCEPT OF FREEDOM UNDER A CONSTITUTION IS GONE. I DON'T THINK WE'LL GET ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY. SO VIGOROUS SUPPORT OF YOUR CANDIDATE IS HEALTHY, BUT WHEN IT'S SAID AND DONE IF THE NATION SLIPS INTO FOUR MORE YEARS, WE'LL ONLY HAVE OURSELVES TO BLAME IF WE CAN'T PULL THINGS TOGETHER. I HOPE YOU'LL LISTEN IN AND GOD BLESS AMERICA.
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.
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.
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.
EVERY YEAR AT THIS TIME WE SIGH IN RELIEF WHEN TAXES ARE DONE AND SUBMITTED AND THEN WE JUST START OFF ON ANOTHER YEAR OF THE SAME OUTDATED AND COMPLICATED SYSTEM, ONE WHICH IS MANIPULATED, IS BIASED AND IS FULL OF CORRUPT ADMINISTRATIVE PRACTICES. SO WHY DO WE, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, CONTINUE TO PUT UP WITH THIS ALBATROSS WHEN SO MANY OTHER NATIONS HAVE REPLACED THEIR SYSTEMS WITH EASY TO NAVIGATE PROCEDURES. WE TALK ABOUT IT, YET DO NOTHING ABOUT IT AND THE POLITICIANS SMILE TO THEMSELVES AS THEY CONTINUE THE PRACTICE OF LOOKING OUT FOR THEIR CONTRIBUTORS FIRST AND THE PEOPLE LAST.
WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT IT TUESDAY, INCLUDING THE WASTE AND FRAUD AND THE MANY PROGRAMS WHICH WE FUND THAT SHOULD NEVER BE INCLUDED AND HAVE PROVED TO BE LOADED WITH CORRUPTION AND SPECIAL TRICKS. WHAT ABOUT THE FAIR TAX OR THE FLAT TAX? CAN WE CONTINUE THE WAY WE ARE GOING FOR MUCH LONGER? MY REGULAR GUEST MARK COLLIER WILL JOIN ME AT 10 AM TO SEE IF WE CAN'T COME UP WITH SOME ANSWERS.
YOU MIGHT WANT TO JOIN US. AFTER ALL, COME "HELL OR HIGH WATER", IN ANOTHER 365 DAYS WE'LL RIGHT BACK TO THE SAME POINT UNLESS ..........YOU FILL IN THE SUGGESTED WORDS. HOPE YOU'LL BE WITH US.

Agent Burt and Agent Marshall will conduct a timely discussion on what a Tax Return is and the meaning of Income within the legal system. Our discussion will continue to revolve around the Agency relationship that is operated through the Citizen-ship by the individual(person) which is operated by the AGENT(the human body and soul).
We discussed the meaning of the terms: income, gain, profit. Made comparisons between Actors(agents) vs Producer(principal) in a movie production. Talked about how the IRS is an accounting agency to determine the value of its possesions, both the legal name Entity and other things of value. Illustrated that labor for consideration is not income. Anything collected through the legal name Entity is the property of the principal of the Entity, but the human agent still must be paid for his time in something of value.
We were joined by Agent Tom and Agent Dino, whom we thank for thier time and contribution to the show.
