Im hoping a lot. I heard St. Cloud's food scene is too bland. Could also use a few mojitos there!

I don't think PRs moving here will impact me.

I wonder if people were up in arms with New Orleans and residents of other places impacted by Katrina moving into Houston and such.

As I recall, yes, people were up in arms with all the evacuees from NO.

Imagine losing your home to a natural disaster and people are 'up and arms' over you trying to flee disaster.

Obviously, it's about who those people are. I'm sure no one cared if suburbanite New Orleans residents fled to their city, if they were even significantly impacted.

Now, Puerto Ricans who do not speak Enlish are claiming that as a disability and filing for SS Disability here.

Too many PR's are takers, and its sheds a negative light on all of them unfortunately. How to weed out the bad ones an send them elsewhere?

They messed up the local school districts here for a couple months until they went home- you'd have a 'classroom' being a taped off square in the gym because there was no space for them otherwise.

Hopefully the stuff in the article has been fixed since the 2013 publication date.

If Social Security Disability cannot be properly administered there, it needs to be eliminate. The abuse is rampant, and we are paying for it. Here's an article saying 11 were arrested of SS disability fraud, so there's hope...
