Not my thoughts, but what I heard from some Florida "Natives", one told me a story where some Baby Boomer from NY was being interviewed on the local news because there was a 4 foot gator in the lake behind her home and she felt threatened by it and called the HOA to have it removed, which they did.

I agreed with him 100% and laughed because it's not just the accent but how some people act here. Same woman probably let's her 5 pound Teacup Yorkie walk around unleashed near the waterline.

How do you know I'm a he?

"Factual Evidence" let's call in Dayle Hinman folks!

I already proved my point, but your hungry for more info I know you were compelled to reply. I wish I could satisfy your appetite for information on Florida and the negatives, but I must be going, I'm flying to Milan for Christmas to spend the holiday with some relatives and have to start packing.

Buon Natale...Merry Christmas...Happy Hanukkah...Happy Holidays..meh to be politically correct.

yes. there is a very high concentration of former NY'ers in S. FL. I wonder if that is the highest concentration anywhere.

Probably because there arent alligators roaming around NY. Surely if u took a Floridian on the NYC subway they would be concerned at all the rats there.

Ive got a BROOKLYN novelty plate on the front of my truck, a small NY Yankees decal and a decal memorializing 9-11. Also an American flag.

People are stupid everywhere, not just in Florida. Our country had been going down the toilet for a long time. I mean, the fact that more people can name the Kardashians but can't name half of the Supreme Court Justices is very, very sad. Not long ago, I told someone I was gazing at the moon the previous evening and she thought the moon was a planet. I gave up trying to explain it's a satellite of our planet Earth and that other planets also have moons. After all, how can the moon be a satellite when it doesn't even have any TV channels?

Anyone who has watched a late night talk show knows that people in California can also be really ignorant. I used to think the people stopped on the street were paid actors, but they're not. One man was asked in what country one would see the Panama Canal and he couldn't answer Jay Leno. Some people couldn't even name 2 of the Founding Fathers of our country. New England has over and over again been listed as the area with the smartest people, but that's because of all the Ivy League colleges, but a lot of them move to Florida when they retire or buy second homes here. The wages in most states in the South are very low, so they don't often attract highly educated people who desire competitive salaries. Still, there are plenty of smart people in the Deep South. Some of the stereotypes do exist, but idiots live all over the United States.

Florida has been ranked somewhere in the middle in most surveys regarding education and its rank has improved over the past several years. In fact, many of Florida's high schools are ranked the best in the country.

For as long as I can remember, FL was always the choice when leaving NYC whether it was retirement or relocation.
