College. Being young and dumb I pretty much thought the campus of the University of Tampa WAS Tampa...once I started leaving campus it was pretty disappointing. Then I got married and had kids and it was even more disappointing.

And yes I like where I am now.

But what i dont understand rico,is that you post facts and #s that represent that there is a serious problem with Florida ,including illegal immigratio being a problem and the facts you post show that the hispanic culture in florida is doing more harm than good to the state.yet you will debate against those types of fstatments when you make replies.Are you playing devils advocate while showing folks the hispanic culture is hurting florida?

I have lived in FL for 34 years, used to have a good time here..before the heavy influx of residents,ensuing traffic problems, incr pollution,decresed fishing due to above, and NOW the insurance/tax hikes. In many ways, I wish I had never left my home state of PA...I miss it there..Life was so much simpler..not such a struggle , just to survive..but as they say..this is just MY OPINION................................DJ/Sunshine

Default hmm?

Well I see you covered most of Floridas stats.
Florida has grown in many areas, but there is still alot of untouched land in Florida, we have more then just a little bit of agriculture, it is possible in your area sir that it is deplenishing. I know where I am from which was cypress swamps, big ranches, horse farms and endless forests as far as you could see has started to see growth and it really disheartens me, but then all I have to do is get out and drive east or west or north and quite a few places South and I feel better. Loads of small towns in Florida, just gotta get off the beaten path for sure. All States have the same gripe for sure. Florida is very diverse, we have over 158 state parks other ranks not mentioned is We are the Horse capital of the World, Kentucky claims to be, but we Marion County (Ocala) actually holds the trade mark from the Dep Of Agriculture, top ranking in sugar cane, strawberries, fishing capital of the world, citrus. Ruskin is known as the Salad bowl of America, cause not only are they top ranking in tomatoes, but they also grow winter vegatables and others year around, the list is endless, and the diversity of the landscape of Florida is unbelievable, but you won't find this in the city and over grown areas for sure. Florida also is the only place in the World with the underground cave systems and springs, which is absolutley beautiful in places. Florida is unlike any other state and read a book the history is fantastic and very diverse. Anyway 5th generation cracker here, gotta support this place. Do we have many people moving down here? Oh yeah, pisses me off just thinking of it, but I have been to many places in the united states and have traveled many places abroad, same story, no matter where you go. I think TOO many people in the world is the problem.

The air isn't the only thing unstable about Florida. The people are just as unstable and imbalanced. Every place has its share. What I find is that Florida has an abundance. That's my story and im sticking to it.

I don't think this is quite true--would appreciate hearing more about it.

I'll agree with you there.
And I do think Florida really is a one of a kind place, with a remarkable history.
It will be interesting to see how everything shakes out.

For the first time in 30 years, United Van Lines Inc. says it moved more people out of Florida than in, and analysts see that as a sign that consumers are looking elsewhere for a cheaper slice of life.

The nation's largest moving company reported 16,212 inbound shipments to Florida last year and 17,019 outbound shipments. United moved more people to Florida in each year from 1999 to 2004, but the number of inbound moves fell in 2005, spokeswoman Jennifer Bonham said.

United's report shows that North Carolina, Oregon and South Carolina were the top destination states in 2006. Michigan, hit hard by automobile industry layoffs, North Dakota and New Jersey were the states that saw the most people leave.
