Hey, Bradenton may be crime ridden with mucho black/Hispanic/redneck crime but it's also got the Peekaboo Lounge so it's not all bad!

I get a "snob" vibe from Sarasota, but not Bradenton.

Look kids...the ENTIRE Sarasota-Bradenton area is a strange place. Bradenton seems just seedy. Sarasota is like the Baltimore theory of good block-bad block. The whole area looks like Ohio paradise....
All I needed to see were the Waffle Houses to know...

The whole concept of ANYBODY in that area being a snob is pretty laughable...

I can tell you the difference between Sarasota and Bradenton by song!

Bradenton:
YouTube - M.I.A. - Paper Planes

Sarasota:
YouTube - What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

And that ladies and gentlemen is the difference between Bradenton and Sarasota. In one all they want to do is take your money (bang, bang, bang), and in the other one they see shades of green.

Shades of green? As in the color of money? Sarasota costs too much.

No, shades of green as in clean grass, beautiful air and friendly people.

Yes, I said friendly people. I'm from Orlando, and I've seen a lot of nasty people, believe me, the people in Sarasota are very friendly.

A large percentage of humanity is only caring about themselves and will step on the back of your neck to get to what they want.

Materialistic things only fill the void short term.

Money gives you the opportunity to be the a-hole to those that are deserving.

I have never been one to be put in the box, however most have this thought process.

I do know that all will be judged in the final days and what you and I think will probably not carry much weight.


By the way I am a 30 year resident of Sarasota County.
