Joke's on them when half the state is underwater in 20 or so years.

Just wait 10 years. 99% of them will die off

Florida: God's waiting room.

Florida is where old New Yorkers go to retire and die. Seinfeld can't be wrong.
 
2013-12-29 02:41:58 AM
That's because all the snowbirds are making it permanent. Gonna suck when they find out they can't vote in both states anymore.

I find that people who can't make it in society either end up moving to Vegas or Florida.

New Yorkers should demand a recount.

The bonus here is that Florida gets more representation in the House.  Yay.

Well in that case I might just see yet another TV show reboot.

They cancall it COPS:Miami-Dade, or maybe COPS:Broward County.

Monroe county is usually pretty blue, and I believe the Buffalo area, though that's maybe reducing over time... My county though, ugh. Our 'Democrat' mayor is bleeding this place dry and will probably ALSO retire to FL.

I agree 100%.  People who move to California or Florida are losers who couldn't hack it when faced with real weather.  Any man or woman worth a damn wouldn't even vacation to those states; they'd stay in states with actual seasons.  The traffic, crime, and smog in California is so terrible it's not even worth driving through.

Plus nowadays the state is ruled by drug gangs.  Rampant violence.  Tourist beheadings nearly every day.

Nobody speaks English.

Earthquakes.  Terrible floods.

Locusts.

Yeah, real men vacation or live in New Mexico, Texas and Arizona. Cali is horrible, just a total hellhole, nobody should come here. Especially the southern bit, which is trapped betwixt the horrors of Tijuana and pr0n stars.

Don't you hate it when somebody does something that you could have done, but didn't do, and they got recognized for doing it and you didn't because you didn't.

All heavily populated states New York, California, Texas, Florida etc should have their own tags.  More people, more stupid things being done.

Which is why is it so insane. Imagine the cowardly liberal mind that is ok with banning salt, large popcorn and sodas. Now imagine them getting old and senile. That is half of Florida's population. The other half are the criminal rejects of Cuba and other illegals.  Florida is our Australia with a Disney World.

This also proves that high taxes do drive people away.

B. Thomas Golisano had it right. So does my niece, who owns a construction company. Anyone of means is leaving this over-taxed, over-regulated, progressive hellhole for states that don't go all Dyson on their wallets.

Of course we are ahead of New York. It took the highly intelligent people from those tropical 3rd world sh*tholes a few years to realize how f*cking cold it gets in NY. Now they and their welfare / food stamp / free medical and subsidized educations ( that they never use) come here to Florida. Thanks ACLU and Jimmy Carter. Thank you.

If there are any Americans still living south of West Palm Beach please bring our flag with you as you escape from south Florida.

The New York City metro area is actually gaining population, it's upstate that's been devastated by loss of manufacturing jobs.   IBM. GM, GE, just to name a few.....all gone now and they ain't coming back.   Funny thing, despite all the talk of sky-high wages, most of those New York manufacturing jobs were paying $20-$25 per hour.  The jobs that have not been sent overseas have been moved to Florida or Texas where they pay $10-$15 per hour.

Well the wages drove some mfg jobs away from Upstate but it really had to do with the crazy high taxes, sales, property,income and fees for every single thing the state can tax from fishing licenses to business liquor licenses. NY's motto should be "We've got what it takes to take what you got"

================

Certainly taxes are high, but the plants were ancient, and the areas around the plants heavily polluted by lack of environmental regs back in the day.  For example, GE dumped untold amounts of dioxins into the Hudson.  It's a very sore point with GE that the state ordered them to clean that shiat up.  Now they will move to Texas and Florida and never be bothered by those pesky environmental regs again.  Enjoy your dioxin, Florida.

Oh, she's 17, I'm sure.


I had a college roommate who was the goddamn fountain of youth.  He'd go out on a date with a girl who was "19".  Then after an evening of fixing the cable I'd hear some variation of "turns out she's 17".  He generally had the sense to not test age-of-consent laws, but after a while I suggested he start carding girls before the first date.

Well, no - the stinkin' rich stick around because they can pay the freight. Westchester, most of Manhattan and a growing part of Brooklyn are boutique addresses, plus Dutchess/Columbia/Ulster is a nice place for a second home.

It's the middle class and some of the upper-middle who GTFO whenever possible.

That'll come as news to upstate's congressional delegation. A big chunk of rural upstate is represented by Louise Slaughter, Bill Owens, Dan Maffei and Brian Higgins - all Democrats. There are no more conservatives like Gerry Solomon (look him up - he was your classic napalm-eating old Marine) in New York's congressional delegation, and over in the Senate, moderate Kirsten Gillibrand went hard Schumer left (liberal with an exception carved out for Wall Street) when she got the callup after Hillary left office.
