I have come to the conclusion that Florida is a portal to Hell. Instead of “Welcome to Florida ” at the border it should say “Abandon all hope ye who enter here.”
Just in recent memory, some from the hall of shame:
The face eating homeless man in Miami
George Zimmerman / Trayvon Martin
Charles Whitman, yes the Texas Tower sniper but he was raised in Lake Worth FLORIDA
The inordinate amount of coordinated mortgage fraud from title agencies, bank officers, real estate brokers, straw buyers.
Flim-flam con men, fake investment companies, time share scams, people renting houses they do not own, planned fender benders to collect from insurance companies, clinics treating phantom patients and billing Medicare for millions.
Dozens if not hundreds of politicians kicked out of office from misdemeanors to major felonies. Do not get me started on the voting snafus, clusterfucks and Chicago-like voter fraud.
Exorbitant home insurance rates, impossible to afford windstorm insurance, sinkholes.
Trailer parks. Amusement parks that charge $80.00 per person, plus parking.So a family of four can get in a park for just a hair under $500 dollars and then its the nine dollar hot dog and the eleven dollar beer, so let the cash registers sing.
Just offshore: the Bermuda Triangle,hurricanes, refugees from Cuba and Haiti, drug smugglers, human smugglers, sharks, portuguese man o’ war, alligators, crocodiles, idiot tourists who can’t swim , the perils are endless.
Yet people flock to Florida like moths to a flame, to enjoy the beaches, the year round great weather,and the cultural diversity from the north Florida redneckish college town feel, to the international flavor of Miami, to the hip-hop feel of South Beach, to the laid back Jimmy Buffett feel of Key West.Come to Florida, you want weird, you got weird.
