Never leaving? Your current location doesn't appear to be Miami. LOL.

It was listed as South Florida and in the time this thread has been going I moved from Key Largo to Hendry county. Life is so much better and I am closer to farming than IT. Miami is a place I am often in, but the area just seems to get worse and worse over time. I am trying to get my friends to move out here from Miami, but they are mostly trapped by their jobs. I love it here though.

Working people don't have time or a need for a farm to work and live.

Pinecrest. In the last ten years it has gone from relatively quiet, to congested and noisy...lots more traffic, lots more construction, landscapers with chainsaws and leaf lowers, loud loud loud neighbours etc. Smaller houses are replaced with gargantuan ones, trees cut down, so the loud people are closer to your windows and there's less shrubbery to deaden the noise...Coral Gables is much quieter, believe it or not.

Business owners can benefit from the reduced living costs of an area, less traffic, and a higher quality of living than a county run by corrupt politicians bending over to entice real estate scams. Working people need to eat, and it is a lot better to have produce at arms reach instead of going to Publix for overpriced, wilted greens and tasteless fruit.

My goal is to get enough people together to control county government and be business friendly but developer adverse. Most long time workers in a place like Miami are employed directly or indirectly by government. They are locked in their jobs by benefits that shrink over time and a salary that never keeps up with a Fed driven bubble cost of living.

I live in Little Havana, its not that great, feels more like low income trap slum, and the people are ****ty. I used to live in Coral Gables (currently work there), love the people and the international vibe it has. I went to school in Coral Gables Elementary (one of my fav years).. Miami is not for me though, not diverse enough in my opinion, no Asian influence (ex: Chinatown), no enough Mosques, where are all the Indians? Lack of actual Bilingualism (Spanish heavily preferred over English), too expensive to live in, too many ignorant people, too frigging hot! (I love the cold), too ghetto, I could go on.... lol

luckily I'm moving soon

It looks like ppl from Miami only wants to see diversity as a aesthetic thing instead of interacting with real ppl. My question is, why some people are so complaining about they neighborhoods is there are zero interaction no matter if you live in little havana, haiti, Coral Gables or the most sumptuous condo on the beach?

It looks like everything is about how-it-looks-like if you'll pardon the repetition.

I honestly could care less if they refuse to learn English, that's their problem. They know they won't get anywhere without English.
ABSOLUTELY. I hate that and I am a Latino living in Argentina!

I learned English as a kid, so it's always a challenge and the most I enjoy when I visit the USA is the chance to speak English for real. I've been to places as diverse as San Fransisco, Phoenix, Detroit and New York, but when I visited Miami, people would talk to me in Spanish, and I was like "what the F! did I land on the wrong country! why are you talking to me in Spanish, you're ruining the experience!"

Thank you so much!! I clapped while reading this because finally a Latin American who ACTUALLY wanted to immigrate to the UNITED STATES!!! not some copy and paste version of a Latin American city. I applaud you for respecting, and actually wanting to use our country's language because SO MANY people in this city don't. Unfortunately for some of us born and raised in Miami, yes, you did land in the wrong country. Good luck and continue your efforts!
