That is funny, funny, a relative of mine would be on the floor with that, but he would add CALIFORNIA with FLORIDA as well.I told him with nature you may get parts of CALIFORNIA anyway.

Too many to list, if you've paid attention to the news for the last 20 years or so...

Considering the shape of Florida, it makes it look like we're pissing on Cuba.

Ah, Florida.


No state income tax.
Pisses right on the commie paradise, Cuba.
Didn't buckle under race baiting preassure down south.


Oh, and girls in bikinis. Everywhere. Including in grocery stores.

They make up for it with unwarranted DUIs.

There are all kinds of ethnic people in FLORIDA, I don't see any harm in the cartoon. It is hilarious, just like there are no blatant intentions with New Yorkers saying they are better then people from Chicago, The rival between BOSTON AND NEW YORK IN THE SPORTS WORLD. Why many New Yorkers look at New Jersey as a dumping ground state. Why many people in the country like to pick on New York or Texas, etc etc. Florida has been the butt of many jokes for years. Like this one-CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD-83- A small town in Florida.

Obviously not. But your comment, yes.

You made yourself into the "race baiter" by using those silly, unjustifiable words.

I love how someone justified Florida being a "cool" because they had no income tax (which is hardly a good thing, because you'll still be paying that percentage in everything else) and girls in bikinis at the supermarket. I live in Georgia, and have vacationed to Florida nearly every year of my life. And while you think seeing women in bikinis in the grocery store would be like this...



It is actually more like this...

The law prevailed. It had nothing to do with justice.

He said he didn't know what the law was! He lied. He took classes. Why, he practically laid down on the ground. And screamed like a bitch. He knew what he was doing. He had a concealed weapon. And he knew the law.

Look into your heart.

They make up for it with unwarranted DUIs.

If you can point to a news story that shows police have been giving tickets to people in Florida who were not under the influece, that would be one thing. Otherwise, you're either drunk or you're not. It's either warrented or it's not.


And tripling traffic violations fees, tripling yearly car registration fees, disposable tires fees, the list goes on and on...

Not quite. There seems to be some confusion here about state income vs. other kinds of fees. One is taken out of your paycheck and you have to deal with come tax season each year. And you get some of that back in filings.

You're registration fee is an optional cost. If you don't have a car, you don't pay it. If you're going to be without a car for a year (maybe because of cash flow, possibly because you had your license revoked temporarily) you don't have to renew. Certaintly not a way to make up for nonexistant state income tax.

A the disposable tire fee, by the way, has it's under pinnings in the same ideology that brigns you crap like wrongful conviction of a person on trial. Anyway, that's for another time.
The disposable tire fee is also options. If you don't drive, you don't have tires to have a fee charged against you for. If you drive very little each year, sans a popped tire or dry rot, this is not an annual fee, it can takes years before you pay that -- certainly not a way for a state, any state, to make up as you all supposed, for ninexistant state income tax. And if you do drive and drive frequently, if you have the cash, you can always get new tires before you're wear out and trade in your old ones at a used tire supplier; they'll pay you a little for the tires and you don't pay a fee. You can even just sell them yourselves online and make more.


Traffic fines are at the discretion of the issuing officer. It is not an annual fee. You can go years without a ticket. In fact, if you don't have a vehicle, you're not going to get a ticket for speeding or what have you. And while there are problem officers out there, most are not as such, and if you try -- I don't know -- obeying the law, you might find yourself without a ticket. I've known people who've gone without a citation their entire life. In fact, the police in this county are pretty lenient considering they let people change lanes suddenly without signaling, while in front of the cop car; speeding passed an officer and not getting pulled over; and they have the common buffer to five to ten miles over which they let people get away with. Certainly not a way to make up for nonexistant state income tax, from a population that has members who get ticketed little to even at times never at all.


The state is not an evil entity set to get you just 'cause it has no state income tax. It charges fees just like any other state. In fact, it charges the same kinds of fees and often about the same amount thereof, as others states who do possess a state income tax do. So, if Florida were greedy for this, what does that make the state who double down upon you? I guess there'd have to be a level like super karate monkey death gluttony.


I know, this seems like common sense, but yet here I am having to explain it.

Did anyone else here have to LOL when you heard the attorney say: "He is dead through no fault of his own. He is dead because another man made assumptions. Because his assumptions were wrong."

Am I the only one who thinks young Trayvon is dead because he made a fat, racist wanna-be-cop bleed from the head, before ascertaining whether this "community watch commander" was carrying a firearm?

There are many lessons to be learned from this unfortunate meeting of two idiots in the dark. One of them certainly is "try English before violence." If only one of those 911 phone recordings had said (instead of "HEEELLLLLPPPPP!!!") "Wow, where's that community watch guy when you need him?!" Or, "My name is Trayvon Benjamin Martin. I'm just walking home; I live over there. Is that pistol in the crack of your ass hurting you? May I help you to remove it?"

For the record, I was being a bit sarcastic.

So much of this makes little sense for both men. Trayvon was not the innocent little boy shown in that one photo that continually is shown on the news that is several years old... And Zimmerman is not prince of the city guarding it's gates. I cannot help but wonder what the missing piece is? Perhaps one of them was there to sell the other drugs and it went down bad? Or was a set-up from the start. Who is to say now? But I do believe this is not over yet.
