    How sad what Florida has become

    Something seems really wrong in Florida. Much of the state looks half dead. The palm trees look half dead, lawns and areas where grass should grow are half dirt, half grass. Like you might expect in a desert climate. The skies are never bright blue, rather a dim whitish blue. Many business areas are trashy, with big weeds everywhere and either poorly mown or unmown grass. FOR LEASE signs are in all business strips in Florida.

    Surprisingly lately I have even noticed a lot of trash and litter along the highways and freeways. There are still a few nice areas , the beach side communities - where the wealthy live and water their lawns and plants of course, also a few areas that for some reason are still hanging on, and a few other areas that appeal to snow birds. But overall Florida is becoming just like the industrialized rust belts of the north. Dirty trashy and decaying.

    Almost everyone has a shiny newer affluent looking car though.

    How did a worldwide tourist destinatin get this way? Were those in power trying to copy third world tourist destinations maybe? If so, they suceeded. What a shame. It was such a paradise years ago.

    Maybe it is the unrelenting almost nonstop chemical spraying of the skies in Florida. Many claim we are being bombarded with aluminum, barium and other harmful heavy metals and even viruses. Who is spraying us like bugs, and Why? The military no doubt has to be involved.

    Illegal and legal third world immigrants probably love it here though.. It is THEIR state now. They all work and hold jobs.Poor White citizens are the ones you see standing at the corners with signs asking for help or work, begging those third world immigrants for mercy.

    • When again did your ancestors move to America? From where? Why did they move here, financial opportunities? There were already people here, why did they move here?

    • Who wants to visit Florida, not safe to go out to dinner, not knowing if a nut with a gun wil come in and kill everyone. Or accost you then say right to not stand down. Couldn't pay me enough to visit FL.

      Answer this question, when did your ancestors move to America, and were there already people here then? Mine came around 1890-1905 from Europe. There were lots of people here already.

      Gee the Europeans came here about 300 years ago, and found the land already taken, but they took it for themselves without even asking. They killed many of the residents who were already here for thousands of years, who thought it was their home. They killed almost all the buffalo for just the hides, leaving the bodies to rot away. Going to Church all the while. Technically does it even belong to them now? Maybe you should look think a little deeper.

      Sentiment: Buy

      I first thought you said, "How sad what Fonda has become." What a traitor to her country!

    • If you are being sprayed like a bug, it is because you are a bug. Live with it!

    • You are a total moron......

    • My parents are in Florida as we speak. They're having a lovely time. The weather has been great! I wonder why you don't enjoy it? Oh yes, you're a racist moron who has ruined his own life with his hate. How could I forget?

      • Like I said there are still some nice places in Florida, most are predominantly White areas though. And there will always be some nice places, just as there are in third world countries.

        The roads in Florida are excellent which might givie it the appearance of a more prosperous state than it is to visitors heading to a specifice tourist destination, or those who don`t travel much outside their 'nice' pleasant areas.

        It appears to me to be a state in decline though. The White folks who at one time dominated this state sold White Floridians out imo. I think the future for ordinary working and middle class Whites in Florida is very bleak. It will not be a pleasant place for most of them, imo.
