prichard, why not northern ga? it isnt as popular as nc and tn, right?

Backtofla, I've got a little cabin in N. Georgia. You'd be surprised how many people from Central Florida have moved up there. A lot of people from South Florida have moved to the little town of Blue Ridge (also a lot of Atlantians with 2nd homes there too). The locals aren't too happy about it. I've sort of avoided that area, but not due to who is/isn't moving there. I just liked Rabun Co. a little better - it's got the River and Lake Burton

If Floridians (me included) and Atlantians end up messing up N. Georgia, Arkansas is on my list of places I'd consider retiring to. But for now, I absolutely love N. Georgia!

There are several things I would like to educate you about...let's start with learning how to spell. "Thier" as you spelled it in many of your post is spelled, "their." And now lets talk about your country. Puerto Rico is a part of America!! Now I know the school systems aren't that great but then again I thought you might have learned basic spelling and concepts.

As for the way us Puerto Ricans act. You can assume what you want. Yes there some people who may follow a certain stero type, but there are many Puerto Rican people who are well educated and don't live the "ghetto" life you describe. I am sure there are plenty of Southern people who follow stero types, you don't see us posting constantly about who much we hate you.

Have you ever lived in NYC, struggling to make it by? Then deciding to try to make a better life for your family by moving to only be rejected by the native people who are supposedly friendly? For New Yorker's when times get tough we do what we have to, to survive, even if it means defending ourselves from other people who hate us after we answer the question, "so where are you from?"

and then you wrote:

"I am sure there are plenty of Southern people who follow stero types"


i'm not always a good speller either.

Peace, I believe Orlando will become just like some areas in California where there is a big mix of interests and they will feed each other. There is room for everyone. www.MoveNowToFlorida.com

If you read everything I said, you would get the point I was trying to make about people trying to make better lives for themselves and their families and being rejected for who they are and where they are from...

i see your point, but people discriminate against the south "all" the time, but when a southerner retaliates and says something about another area all hell breaks loose....on top of that ...you dont have floods of southrners moving into NYC and talking crap about everything there on their home turf, but we do (New Yorkers that come here) and thats why you hear people say what they say....its from conversations we here at the store or in resturants where New Yorkers are complaining about how nothing is as good or like it is in NYC....we can tell the difference of them just talking to people in thier group or them just being loud to let "everyone" around them know what they think about our state.....most southerners dont visit NYC and say things like that when we are there.....im not saying all New Yorkers are guilty of this but for the ones who are (which is alot) we as southerners wished you wouldnt come in someones house and walk with muddy shoes on the carpet or tell us our kitchen is too small or our TV isnt as nice....thats all....but my words wont change anything....because it all comes from being homesick for most of the people that have attitudes

sexyitalianmami76, MIAMIMANEFOSHO; Could you please tell me what school system you attended so I can be sure NOT to send any of my children there? Or even drive by it for that matter?

Also, I worked in fast food during college and PLEASE believe me when I say being rude to the employees definitely adds to the ingredients you get on your burger. Trust me. heh. Seriously.

thaspecial-I also understand the point you are trying to make as well. It just sucks that I have been wanting to move to Florida for several years now and I was very excited that this is supposed to be happening soon and then for me to read some of the messages that are posted here, it honestly makes me want to reconsider. I guess my point is that I hope not everyone feels this way toward "New Yoricans" when I just want a better life for my family.

I also agree with what you said about people being homesick. I think that to many people move expecting to experience the same life that they had in their own state. But people have to realize when they move that they are moving somewhere that people's way of life will be different from what you are used to. Culture Shock, I guess.
