No need to come here and expect a rapid change to make things like it was in a concrete jungle somewhere else. It's not going to happen soon. To many old time crackers in place to block it.
I wish. Where were the crackers for the last 60 years, at least? Run over by the machine. Folks with money stuffed pockets and took over. And I don't mean cute Aunt Gladys and Uncle Henry. I mean developers. If it weren't for the crash they would have eventually turned the entire state into a parking lot. Except for the middle of the state. That's run by Big Ag and isn't going anywhere.

Special interests run Florida.

I would take Florida over old, dumpy Ohio anyday of the week.

In fact, I would take almost anywhere (except west virginia) over Ohio.
Ohio is the epitome of rust belt, boring, crap weather mid-west, fat people.

I'm not saying everyone in Ohio is fat, but its got that obese, folksy "RoseAnne Barr" feel to it.

remember the TV show RoseAnn?
thats what Ohio is like.

There's plenty of fat people down here as well; they just wear less clothing.

Very common, everybody loves FL on vacation and most love the first few months or years here. Then the love sours for some and they move out to be replaced with more newcomers. Over a 1000 people move here every day and over a 1000 pack up and leave every day too. Businesses that sell homes when these people move in and move out and move their belongings are recession-proof in FL.

If 1k come and 1k go that is a balanced situation, isn't it?


I disagree with you that MOST people fit the description you provide.

According to the state of Florida, 1,000 people move in a day. I can't find any reference to 1,000 people moving out a day, other than what you've plastered all over the internet.
