Join Steve and me tonight on Conservative Republican Forum as we discuss his run for Florida State House in District 89, and the hot topics of the day. As we get closer to Florida’s August 24 Primary and Election Day in November, things are heating up on the political scene. This year’s elections are absolutely critical and those of us who care about preserving freedom must do everything in our power to help bring commonsense conservative men and women of integrity into all levels of government — from local and state legislatures to the halls of Congress.
As always, we welcome your presence in live chat and your calls at (347) 637-1121. See you at 6 p.m.!
Steve and I take a break from our grassroots candidates series to interview two of the brightest minds and articulate voices among conservative women, Heather Bachman and Alexandrea Merrell. Bachman is the Policy Director of Frontiers of Freedom, Political Editor for Parcbench and host of the GOP Girl Show. Merrell is the author of a new book entitled, Rules for Republican Radicals, having completed extensive research on leftist agitator Saul Alinsky.
Having listened to Merrell’s interview on The Neidner Show last week, I can promise you that this evening’s broadcast will be informative and fascinating. And since Steve and I both write for Parcbench, we’re familiar with Bachman’s excellent work and look forward to hearing more about her involvement in the conservative movement.
As always, live chat will be open and your calls will be warmly received at (347) 637-1121. See you at 6 p.m. Eastern!
Join Steve and me tonight at 6 p.m. as we continue our “Grassroots Candidates Series” with guests Jim Pratt, running for US House in South Carolina’s Sixth District to unseat Jim Clyburn, and Tommy Castellano, the third Republican primary challenger in Florida’s Eleventh Congressional District. Since we’ve already spoken with Tommy’s other two primary opponents, this will complete the interviews for all Republican candidates running in that race.
As always, we’ll give each candidate time to articulate their positions and answer your questions. Please call in at (347) 637-1121 and/or join us in the chat room. We welcome all respectful feedback and opinion and intelligent debate, so if you have something of substance to add to the discussion, please do. But trolls be warned: we have a very low tolerance for nonsense!
Ok, off to be productive on this lovely Saturday. Won’t be such a “long time” until our show!
“Seize the day. Pray for grace from God’s hand, then nothing will stand in your way.”
I discovered this wonderful song thanks to my friend Sabrina, who included it as part of a collection of inspirational music she’d burned onto CDs for Christmas gifts last year. Just like daily prayer time, listening to motivating music helps keep me focused, strong and firm in my beliefs, and in the accomplishment of my dreams. No matter what may be going on around me, especially things I cannot control, I do know I am fulfilling God’s purpose for me by using the gifts He’s given me — the ability to write, speak and communicate effectively.
Writing professionally has been the only thing I’ve ever really wanted to do from the time I was old enough to tell everyone around me, but it’s also one of those “impractical” career choices — much like acting or singing — that through which few find meaningful success. No, it wasn’t my parents who warned me about that; quite the opposite. They encouraged my dreams, particularly with every A+ essay, book report or teacher conference in which my budding skills were highly praised. And when it was time to go to high school, I was assigned to Advanced Placement (AP) English classes, where my love for reading and writing was expertly guided along by some fabulous teachers, including Mrs. Fenning (RIP).
Truth be told, I was the one who killed my dream before even giving it a chance to materialize. Instead of listening to my own God-given guidance and heeding the encouragement of family, I decided it would be just too hard to make a go of it as an aspiring journalist, opinion writer and novelist. But even while I spent many years working hard and trying to adjust to various corporate positions with varying degrees of compatibility to my skills set, I kept up with my handwritten journals. And especially during the “Ken” and early-Florida-years phase, I wrote copiously in lovely, hard-cover books with floral designs, which ended up being an invaluable resource when I finally sat down to write Water Signs some 14 years later.
Writing is also therapy, and I am convinced that — along with everything else I did — including the successful session I eventually took with the “remote viewer”, it played a significant role in ridding me of panic and anxiety disorder forever. Unsurprisingly, as I look back on that experience, I can also see how suppressing my real career goals and rejecting my life’s purpose also contributed to the emotional disorder, along with the deep-seated matters of the heart. (I will devote a post soon exclusively to panic and anxiety disorder, in the hope it will be helpful to others who may struggling with this formidable problem).
When the phenomenon known as the internet came along, and with it blogs, print-on-demand and social media in the 2.0 phase, I saw that as my opportunity to finally go for it, professionally speaking. This amazing technology has made it possible to showcase my work to an unlimited audience, network with people all around the world, connect with like-minded individuals, and via sites like You Tube, enhance every entry with an appropriate song or video.
At last, I achieved my childhood dream of writing a novel, and was able to publishing without having to grovel to a literary agent, or cope with one rejection letter after another. I could write exactly what I wanted, and present my work directly to my audience — no dream-killing gatekeeper required.
I was even able to expand into other areas previously not thought of, such as talk radio hosting, which has enhanced my political activism, commentary, blogging and novel-writing.
Have a great Sunday and seize the day!
