    1964: The American Experience
    I just watched the 1964: American Experience on my local
    state public television. I enjoyed the program and it certainly brought back
    many memories. I have one issue with the producer and his choice to lean left
    on the historical record and the way the subliminal message was portrayed in
    the film. In the section on President Johnson’s efforts to move the vote on civil
    rights, the film passed the image that it was only Republicans who President Johnson had to sway to his side. It should be noted, for the record, that the majority of Democrats voted against the 14th amendment, The Civil Rights
    Act. Even though Goldwater was a dominant figure for the new Conservative Party at that time, the real barrier to Johnson’s civil rights agenda was the racist
    faction within the Democrat party, not the Conservative Republicans of that
    era. Without the support of the Republican vote, Johnson, and America would not
    of won that victory.

    It would be a good gesture if leftist Democrats finally
    admit that the history of their own political party wasn’t as ideologically
    pure as their revisionist ideas often are.

    I see the station does not wish open debate on the Common Core.

  • g5club

    Of course Fordham is going to push Common Core- they have received money from the biggest Common Core supporter there is- Bill Gates! Fordham Institute has a vested interest = money, almost 2 million so far! Reality is, FL’s standards were higher than Common Core States Standards but yet our state is spending billions of dollars on experimental lower standards, how is that benefiting our children? Better yet, who is looking out for our children?

    I listened to t.d. allman spout off his nasty nonsense on this morning’s show. After less than 30 seconds, I concluded allman has a real personality issue, that being he’s a jerk. I have to question what possible benefit to your audience this guy’s rants serve?
    Thanks for nothing.

  • Frances

    You have to ask yourself, why Allman hates Florida, so much! I know the Spanish were brutal to the Huguenots, but at the same time, they left France because of persecution, The Catholic Church’s fight with The Reformation Movement, taking place, in Europe. One needs to understand history and the importance of the mores of that time. He says he’s a native, but I bet we are talking about 2nd or 3rd generation. He rewrites history to support his opinion. He doesn’t even know that the earliest settlers, still living here were not the Menorcans, but the Spanish Families of Perez,, Solana, and Sanchez. These families can be traced back to the first settlers brought by Menendez, in the late 1500’s. It is true these families, married Menorcans, once, the Menorcans fled to St Augustine.

    Vote Adrian Wyllie for Governor! Also, Bill Wohlsifer for Attorney General and yes on 2.

    Why vote between 2 known liars? Florida, we are fortunate enough not to

    be stuck picking one liar or the other this time. We actually have an

    alternative. Take advantage of the opportunity. Adrian Wyllie deserves

    my vote. He is a honest average Floridian just as you and I , that is

    willing to stand up and do something for the interest of all of us here

    in Florida. The other candidates both Republican and Democrat are owned

    and controlled by special interest, like puppets and will lie to your

    face to gain your vote, then continue the same old agenda that we

    complain about year after year. Time to get off this merry-go-round,

    election after election, thinking it will be any different. Take a

    stand, vote for the candidate that loves this state and is willing to

    take time out of his life, effort and money to SERVE the people of

    Florida, and stop voting for these ‘paid for’ career politicians that are

    only out for money and fame and have zero interest in us Floridians.

    Even if it’s just for honesty alone, vote for Adrian Wyllie instead of

    the other two (Scott/Crist) which are proven liars. The choice is yours

    and yours alone, if you want the same old corruption and slap in the

    face, go ahead and vote for one of the two puppets (Scott/Crist) OR do

    what is right for our (yours and your children’s) future and vote for

    Adrian Wyllie. Support him by donating to his campaign, spreading the

    word and contribute to the super brochure program which I think is very powerful. Visit his website today

    Since your radio show assumes the role of community organizer in the pursuit of social justice, I think you’re slipping. A 16 year old Raines student was hit by a car driven by a 75 year old. Here’s your mission First Coast Connect, should you choose to accept. Find out if the 75 year old was white, and if he/she is, then start the agitation process. You know the drill: Racism is behind this so called accident. After you plant that well used seed, enlist some expert comments from a minority professor/politician/passer by. And then beat the story to death, have as many First Coast Connect shows as necessary until the government steps in and punishes someone in the Tea Party, republican party or passer by.

    THANK YOU FOR PRESENTING THIS INFORMATIVE PROGRAM. I HAVE FOLLOWED SOME OF THE INFORMATION ON THE PROJECT. ONE ITEM I HAVE NOT HEARD DISCUSSION ON IS HOW DO WE PAY FOR THE DEEPENING OF THE RIVER? IF WE DEPEND ON FEES FROM THE SHIPPERS DO WE HAVE A SIGNED CONTRACT WITH THEM THAT WILL COVER THE COST? DO WE HAVE A SECONDARY SOURCE OF REPAYMENT IF THE FEES CHARGED AS NOT SUFFICIENT TO PAY FOR THE PROJECT? I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT TO DISCUSS THE COST INVOLVED AND HOW THEY ARE TO BE PAID.

    It’s a shame one of the largest cities in the US, Jacksonville doesn’t have a decent jazz and easy listening radio station. My only interest in music came from FM music played on WJTZ 90.9 Jones College. The station has been sold and no longer broadcast in Jax, leaving only Rock/Rap, and Country music formats. Of course there are several Conservative propaganda stations, but the spewing of lies is not an interest to people who love good music

  • ParaLaUAZ!

    One reason to drop the embargo and allow more U.S. citizens to visit Cuba? Education. Americans – as represented by some of the comments on this show – are completely clueless about the reality of Cuba. The woman who claimed Cuba has nothing of interest to trade with the USA, since “Bacardi is already here in Jacksonville”. OMG.

    How many Americans are aware that Cuba manufactures the only vaccine in the world that arrests the development of lung cancer? Or the dozens of other biomedical products created by a booming industry that has developed precisely because the U.S. embargo banned Cuba’s purchase of medicines on the world market?

    And to those who are worried that hundreds of American tourists would toss a lifeline to the Castro government – you are obviously unaware that Cuba currently receives around 3-million European and Canadian tourists each year. The only thing that a few hundred U.S. tourists will do to Cuba is make the beaches less attractive to the rest of us.

    Cuba’s #1 income earner right now is not tourism. It’s not even mining. It’s the sale of medical services by Cuban doctors and nurses who are working all over the world. Those are in addition to the thousands of Cuban medical personnel on aid missions – funded by the Cuban government – working in areas like West Africa, where Cubans are the largest on-the-ground, front-line health care army taking on the Ebola outbreak.

    As a Canadian who has lived in Cuba and studied the island since 1994, I have a perspective unencumbered by a half-century of U.S. hostility to the island. Cuba did not invade the U.S. (remember the Bay of Pigs?). Cuba did not conduct terrorist acts on U.S. soil (but was the recipient of hundreds of incidents: bombings, assassinations, biological warfare, etc. conducted by the USA or groups the US allows to operate in Florida). Cuba has not initiated a financial blockade on the USA (while a simple Google search will provide you with many examples of US and even foreign banks fined for ‘breaking the embargo’ with Cuba). Cuba is the victim in this scenario, and the U.S. bully has finally decided to stop stealing its lunch money, and instead will from this point forward attempt to undermine the Cuban government with the carrot, not the stick. But the ultimate aim is the same: the USA wants Cuba to return to it’s pre-1959 role as America’s whorehouse in the Caribbean.

    U.S. citizens need to get over their 50 years of ignorance and learn about this country about which they have literally no idea.

    JJ

    Dandelion
    They grew up together since the summer when they both turned 3
    when a Momma and Daddy moved Into the house ‘cross the street
    they were always together at school and at Church every week
    and they promised each other and exchanged some Dandelion Rings

    he went to the city and she went to the University
    so they could become the people that they’re supposed to be
    she lost her religion and he lost his naivety
    but these things don’t weigh much and they never noticed ‘em leave

    Chorus
    there’s not always a price you can pay
    to get back what you lost yesterday
    but if it spirals around what’s lost can be found
    life’s kinda funny that way

    a time zone of distance put a decade or more in between
    but when they met up for dinner it felt like it’d been just a week
    “the first million’s your hardest”, he said over long Island ice tea
    she said that the same thing is true for a Doctor’s degree

    she said “Life’s Just great”, and he couldn’t complain of a thing
    though things didn’t turn out the way that they thought they would be
    they parted their ways with both of them cryin themselves to sleep
    they thought it was too late to rewrite their own history

    Chorus

  • We were shooting a little home-made video last weekend for a new song we’re really excited about, “Targets and Triggers” in case anyone is interested is checking out more about Mortimer Rex:

    https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10152742537183432&set=vb.107674483431&type=2&theater

    This is not an edited film, just a floor camera (a Go Pro – so it’s got a bit of the “fish-eye” going on). In fact, you can see one of our friends (wearing PJs!) filming as he gets into the shot for a while. It’ll all be edited out, but you can see us in action, so to speak.

    The sound isn’t good – it’s just the mic on the camera, not recorded from the board, so forgive the quality if you can.

  • Gearin Ballweg

    Interesting color and texture in the grasses, too.

  • We must mention that Rick Groves is playing Bass in Dandelion. We had a great time recording it, and his work really makes this song great. Mortimer Rex certainly hopes to continue having Rick play with us.

    Mandatory sentences have to go. One size fits all should not be allowed in our judicial system. That’s why they are called Judges. Prosecutors have too much power and some abuse their power.

  • Kimberly Waterhouse

    I’m shaking my head and absolutely not understanding, why a community program, such as JaxPAL, is not in this conversation or represented. Everything that I’m listening to, is exactly what our programs and services are all about. This is Kimberly Waterhouse, 1st VP on the JaxPal board of directors.

  • DL Hancock

    I watched the show tonight and was shocked at the misinformation in the crowd. What I watched was to many people telling stories of what they’ve been told by mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, aunt, uncle and NOT true history or reallity.
    The first two problems I had was that the host of the show and the female attorney told stories about their children and I will elaborate from there.
    The Attorney stated that she always told her children to call home if they were pulled over INSTEAD of telling her children to respect people and especially Police officers, that you DO NOT fight the law on the side of the street but in the courtroom. She stated that her kids get mouthy and they more or less have that right instead of just showing respect. NO ONE has the right to get mouthy, PERIOD, especially a kid and not smart to a cop on the side of the road.
    I was honestly shocked at her answer on this topic, but I am not done with her.
    The Host-Al Letson told a story of his son at the mall or somewhere playing music and an officer asking him to move. However, Mr Letson reinterated that the cop keep agging his son on and his son Got MAD. Mr Letson, IF you are worried about your son making it home alive, you honestly need to tell him to growup, keep his mouth shut and especially NOT to get mad with Police officers. Plain and simple. If you cannot understand that sir, I dont know what else to tell you.
    The female attorney- Her speech on desegregation and HER fact of Black Teachers being taken out of Black schools to teach those poor stupid White Kids and that is more or less what she was saying was misinformation told to her.
    I would say to her to go to Civilrights.org and research desegregation and busing and then I would say for her to PLEASE use Common Sense.
    Today AA’s make up approxiamtely 13% of america, which I would guess the numbers were much lower in 1968-1978, meaning that how many AA teachers do you really think there were that could have been moved to teach white students AND had Masters degree’s? In your mind, desegregation happened to help White kids when in reallity it was just the opposite.
    Just like today, schools receive tax money per the tax income in their district. AA’s continued to fail schooling and used funding as the problem. Therefore, to help Black students get an equal education, Blacks and Whites were bused for sometimes up to 50 miles away from home, even though they lived right next door to a school.
    I am NOT writing this as a negative to anyone. I am writing this to correct the Misinformation with in ALL communities b/c NONE of this happened when the majority of the audience tonight was alive. However, EVERYTHING I’ve written can be researched and most is on civilrights.org.
    Until Black america AND White America get over the misinfirmation that mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, aunt, uncle and ALL other relatives STOPS and is debunked, we cannot move forward to a peaceful nation.
    In what I watched, ONLY one person even came close to telling the truth OR should I say given true facts and that was the Police officer as it happens. People gave stories as they’ve benen told.
    The Pastor brought up good points, but stopped short of saying what should have been said or he honestly didnt know.
    Yes, the problems are within the Black Community and that is not newly known. Its just that everyone rejects that argument.
    The problem is NOT with ALL Blacks, the problem is with poor Blacks,poor whites etc and i would bet that IF you checked, in most cases the poverty/drug use/who knows has continued from generation to generation.
    We had great grandma, great grandad, grandma, grandad, mom, dad either not there or not willing to work or whatever the problem was. it may have been caused by white america and jobs at the time for great grandma, great grandad and they told the stories of being held back and then their kids didnt go anywhere and left their kids and they didnt go anywhere in life and so on and so forth and when people DO NOT go anywhere in life, what do they do, They Blame others. No one takes responsibility for failures. This happens in EVERY Culture, not just Black america.
    Now, I have worked closely with every race, I have lived with every race, I have depended on EVERY race to watch my back ti LIVE and I have watched theirs and I will even use the most famous words in being called a racist. some of best friends and people I respected were Black. No Problem.
    One other point I want to make. Blacks continue to believe that White people are the racist. However, I would suggest for anyone of you try two things and I guarantee you that IF no one tells the others, I know the results of Who are or will be the true racist.
    Take a Black man and send him into the most backwoods bar you can find and I guarantee you, he will be fine.
    Now, Have a White man go into a Black only bar and I guarantee you that it will NOT take 5 minuites before he’s attacked. I’ve had it happen many times. If it doesnt happen, they were told, plain and simple and you know it. I’ve seen it happen to many times.
    I could tell you about REAL america since 1968 ( As I see it and many facts that went along with it from the feds), but refuse b/c there is no doubt that I would be attacked and I would have to defend myself.
    All that I can say is that everytning I’ve written about, is on Google or should be and can be researched..

    I loved watching these beautiful birds in the dark cypress swamps of the woods I roamed in as a child. Watching “woodies” for hours allowed me to gain an intimate knowledge of their habits. Such as the fact that they feed on acorns. I also, learned the sound of the mournful cries that they make to each other. It adds to their ghost like character as they move in and out of the swamp thickets appearing and disappearing in the black water bobbing for acorns to fill their craw’s.

    NPR is the only radio station my wife and I listen to and annually contribute to. This Errthang show has disappointed me in your otherwise high standard for programming. It seems to validate and even promote the bastardization of the English language. The stories may be fine but I just can’t get past the “DJ” kind of nonsense chatter.

    what a horrible sexist belittling demeaning name for an event put on for women. Women are not girls. They are adult human beings. No one would market an event for men as “boys day out.” I will not support WJCT or Hyatt Regency for mountingthis attack on women.

    Once a thriving community of businessmen and their family’s, this little piece of paradise has been lost in time, no longer inhabited by outsiders, reclaimed by nature. It’s peaceful tranquility tugs at the heart with the hiss of rushing water over the old dam, the natural beauty of nature at it’s best. It’s location is unknown by many, few have been fortunate to have happened upon it and those who have are drawn back again and again to soak in the awe of nature’s power to comfort even the most weary soul. Mr. Wayne Morgan has made it possible for many to enjoy this little known treasure of Brantley County, Georgia with his beautiful Photography.

    I think that Trump and others might be confused about the two voting issues – the popular vote and the electoral college votes. What do you think? It is important to get that confusion straightened out.

  • andreaparker

    I think that before they talk about transgendered people look up about,true facts.i do go to the ladies restroom,have female on all records.we go in do our thing wash hands and out .I do not like being judged by suppose Christians,as judge not as you shell be judged. I have known who I was at 4 years old.all people need to have their rights if not what does that say about our country.i feel watching this that we in lgbt are being judged on this panel,if they say no problem with lgbt then why not pass this ?

    Be My Neighbor Day was a great first time event! Thank you for a wonderful experience which our granddaughters enjoyed. Only negative was disappointment that Daniel Tiger wasn’t present. All the publicity featured him, so learing, after looking and patiently waiting, that Daniel was in Orlando was a moment of sadness. LOVED the trolly ride in adfition to all of the activities and receiving a new book

  • Sally Marks

    I am offending by “girls day out” every single time I hear that advertisement it sickens me. I completely agree with nomd from a year ago that no one would market an event for men as “boys day out”. It recalls the period in our history when women were stuck in the house, and NEEDED day out once in a while! How very backwards! I wouldn’t expect this from NPR, I would expect this coming from maybe Daughters of the American Revolution?

  • Kathy Schwaller Whitaker

    Good grief settle down. I really don’t think calling the event “Girls day out” means that they don’t think we are women. And to equate this with taking away our right to vote is rediculous. Why so sensitive? It’s just a cute name for the event.

  • Bruce Houck

    To participate please donate online at WJCT

  • Denise Velasquez J

    Will it be recorded? I will not be here that date anyway to see it at another time?

    SFC Jackson is a great instructor who loves young people. He is a also a great father who understands, is compassionate and is non-judgmental. I’m excited he was chosen for this national recognition. Duval County has a jewel in him.

    Denying civil rights – e.g., voting – in Florida is a racist effort enacted after the U.S. Civil War as a barrier to voting by newly freed Afro-American slaves. It is a clearly vindictive, counter-productive, archaic process that is an embarrassment to our state and its people. It did not then and does not now have anything to do with reducing crime or making our communities safer. It is the same racist effort today as a century ago. We are one of the very few states that deny civil rights to felons who have completed their sentences.

    Many years ago I worked for the Department of Corrections in another state and was on the team who instituted a new community corrections program. We established and operated a pre-release center where we worked with inmates in a community setting near their original home for 90-180 days before they went on parole or completed their sentences in some other manner. On the check list for every inmate before leaving our center was, for instance, a current driver’s license and registering to vote in the community to which they would be returning. We wanted our inmates to succeed and to be productive members of our communities once they returned to open society. Florida apparently wants inmates to fail once they complete their sentences by placing every barrier possible in their way. Florida apparently believes that every felony conviction comes with a lifetime penalty – removal of civil rights and exclusion from many occupations and licenses – crippling the individual for life despite the fact he/she completed his/her sentence. Clearly Florida has thrown out the tradition of equal justice. Very sad.
