A couple guys I work with are from Florida and mentioned the tax schemes and other things about FL that if I were to sail long term or around the Gulf, I may as well skip FL and keep going.

that was LAST week's Margolis amendment that was brought up before the House Appropriations committee, which applied only to Miami-Dade counties...

The amendment being debated now in the Senate, is a different one from Senator Christopher Smith of Broward County, which is much more far reaching. It would allow any community in Florida not currently participating in the pilot program to determine the minimum distance one may be permitted to anchor from a private residence...

A much scarier proposition, especially given that it does not only apply to Broward/Dade, and as such might actually find wider support among legislators...

You may be right, but I'm not going to go down quietly.

If you were to sail the gulf, Florida is the only place worth going. I hope you guys get the bills defeated, but I like the analogy of the basketball game. If all they have to do is keep trying, I think eventually they will succeed.

If I didn't live here already I would skip it. It sucks.

Yeah. That's the ticket.

Everything about it is bad. Anybody who isn't already in Florida, believe me, you don't want to come here. Just stay away.

Yeah. Yeah.

There are some nice things about Florida, and I'm heading down there in a couple of weeks, but I sure don't miss living in south Florida. My brother has lived there for 30 years, and his wife is a Florida native, with all of her family living there, and they talk about leaving every time I see them. She says it doesn't resemble the place she grew up in. Florida is changing, and not necessarily for the good. And, I don't think there is anything anybody who is against it, can do about it.

I was born in Florida. My parents were born in Florida. 3 of my 4 grandparents were born in Florida.

I remember as a little kid my mom told us kids that if we ate our vegetables, always told the truth, and said our prayers every night that when we die we will go to a place where there are no damn Yankees.

Re: Florida is at it again

The problem might not be with yankees in general.

The problem might be with the sort of yankee that would want to move to Florida...
