It's actually true, though. If you examine state-to-state domestic migration trends, NY, I believe, is the largest Florida contributor, followed by states like New Jersey and PA. Most of the rest of the country only sends small amounts of people there overall.

I know, all those retired old people wreak havoc on the native population.

It would be a dirt-poor hellhole, comprised mostly of dumb, inbred rednecks and Cubans/Puerto Ricans/Haitians.

It would be like neighboring Alabama with Cubans, but with less population than AL.

Nothing wrong with it, unless you dont speak or read Spanish, at which point Id imagine youd feel a bit out-of-place. He asked what FL would be like w/o yankees, and I laid it out. Simple as that.

I once saw a bumper sticker in Florida that read "happiness is 200 Canadians heading north with a New Yorker under each arm." That sums up the feelings of a lot of older generation Florida natives. The younger generation Florida natives seem to not care so much.

Having an aging population is not just a bad thing. Most countries with old people have low crime rates, (That's right guys the biggest factor for crime is how old a country is on average, not how many black people or edit other race is located in the country). Yes eventually aging population will screw super safe places like Japan, South Korea, Singapore, England, France etc. because they will be declining populations and no one to fill things like empty houses, neighborhoods, wasted infrastructure and know one to support the older population etc.
