    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.

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE: IS THERE A REPUBLICAN WAR ON WOMEN?

    in Lifestyle

    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 THURSDAY: THE ROAD TO HEAVEN OR THE HIGHWAY TO HELL?

    in Lifestyle

    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.

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE TONIGHT: 2016 - WILL THE "REAL AMERICA" COME BACK?

    in Lifestyle

    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.

    The North Carolina Anti-LGBT Bill...help me understand the discrimination.

    in Podcasting

    There is big uproar of the the Anti-LGBT bill that was passed by the state of North Carolina in March that says businesses can't make rules or regulations benefitting specifically people of the LGBT Community. Reading the laws, I'm not seeing the true discrimination that people are saying that exist from this bill being passed. I'm not seing where the issue is. I just want to understand. This is not condeming, I'm looking for clarity.
