Half in Illinois and Connecticut Want to Move Elsewhere
I'm not sure you can draw any correlation between taxes and that survey. Also included on the list of states people most want to leave are low-tax states Nevada, Louisiana, and Mississippi. On the list of states people least want to leave is my own Minnesota, only 2% above the winner Montana. In addition to having winters as brutal as Montana, we have taxes as brutal as New York.


Anyway to keep it on topic, Florida polled that 31% would like to move and 67% would like to stay.

Well said. I spent my high school years in Orlando, and I used to tell people, "Deep south is north of here."

No,actually in your mind after five minutes you were the boss. Well the boss screwed up the place to the point that only global warming is the only solution. I had to escape to a little town in south Georgia called Tallahassee. MarioG, do you not understand that arrogant attitude has not only got folks like you despised in Florida but pretty much all gringoes worldwide unwelcomed.

Re: Florida is at it again

Here's a thought; why don't all the people who were opposed to the aforementioned law that didn't pass, start a campaign to unseat State Senator Smith who introduced the law? Now you know that ain't gonna happen!

I suspect that most of the people who live within her district are happy with what she is doing. Were I one of her constituents, at the very least, I would be donating to her opposition at the next election (not to mention voting against her). May do that anyway... Donate to her opposition, I mean, since I don't get to vote for or against her.

Interesting concept, that: people who live in a place dictating what happens in that place...

Re: Florida is at it again

When my ancestors left Canada in 1755 during "Le Grand Dérangement" even we dumb Cajuns had the sense to bypass Florida for Louisiana... 'Course the dumber ones kept going, and now we call them Texans.

Or, people leave place because no one wants to live there, find place everyone does want to live in, and immediately start trying to make it like place they left that no one wants to live in.

Re: Florida is at it again

The reason, according to the latest poll, that 47 percent of the people that live in Maryland want to move out is oppressive taxation, which we definitely have. 44 new taxes in the past 8 years of the O'Mally administration. The second reason was long, cold, wet, nasty winters - which we obviously had this past year for sure.

I would have bailed out of here 35 years ago, but my loving spouse says NO! So, I'm kinda stuck, but just kinda. Next fall, it's off to the Florida Keys again, and they welcome live-aboards in Marathon's Boot Key Harbor. In fact, if you wish to stay in the Mooring Field, you MUST BE a liveaboard. Same holds true for the city marina.

$300 a month will get a mooring ball for you in Marathon, while there is a free anchorage area I'm not sure how long that will be around. However, if you anchor there you must pay for a weekly pumpout, which is only fair. $5 bucks a week ain't gonna kill any cruiser I know of.

My wife might come down to visit me on this next trip, but only if my daughter or son goes with her. It would be nice to have her aboard, but I know she won't stay for long, despite the beauty of the region and fantastic sailing. That's OK, though. I've made lots of great friends down there last year and many are still there.

Cheers,

Gary
