Florida might as well be known as the sixth borough.New data from the Sunshine State’s Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles offers the latest glimpse of just how many New Yorkers fled south during the COVID-19 pandemic. At least 33,565 New Yorkers exchanged their NY drivers licenses for Florida credentials between September 2020 and March 2021.That’s a 32% increase from the same period the prior year, when 25,370 New York driver’s licenses were traded for Florida ones.Florida officials said a major cause of migration was parents looking to get their kids back in full-time, in-person school.

What a sad state of affairs when people are so toxic other states do not want them to settle there. It’s the democrat mindset that is destroying the country. Why would they be welcomed with open arms. #4. They are like locusts. Determine in your hearts never to vote for any democrat for any office. Keep them away from political power and just pray their numbers don’t increase to the point that they are in the majority. It is not right that these destroyers come and inflict their toxic policies on people who do not want them. Look at what they have done to California and New York. Who in their right mind wants that?

We already have enough New Yorkers here during Snowbird Season. All they do is complain that the Restaurants aren't as good as "Up North" , the Health Care isn't as good as "Up North" and now they will VOTE HERE! We already know what is going to happen. They are going to turn our Beautiful, Republican State BLUE! Then it won't be any different than the states they fled from! Obviously, they aren't smart enough to realize that!

I wish our wonderful Gov. DeSantis could somehow bar leftists from infiltrating our state. Our retirement community has many northern transplants and unfortunately, most of them retain their old voting habits. Talking to them you would think New York and Joisey were paradise. Their know-it-all attitude is a real turnoff.

Although I grew up in New York I left the state over ten years ago. I understand the concern of Floridians about us yankees. Whenever someone found out that I was from New York I was immediately questioned about what I would do to the voting record of Florida. I was quick to assure them that I did not live, nor think, like some moronic democrat. I have held conservative values all of my life, even though I lived within 50 miles of the city. I'm glad that we left that corrupt state. I though Mario was bad, his son must have told someone to hold his beer and watch. I'm sorry that I didn't leave sooner. It's nice to live in a free state and have a competent Governor.

So far, those numbers will not make a significant difference in Florida politics but migration out of New York has ruined a couple of smaller states in the Northeast as well as Pennsylvania. Plenty of NY and NJ license plates within a couple hundred mile radius of that urban jungle in the past year. It's an economic boost to Florida so they will not protest too much in Tallahassee. I moved down there for a brief time for a job in the 80s and it was about $300 to switch over drivers' license and registrations. Those people will also be spending their retirement incomes down there. It's not a good thing for the average citizen but the state benefits. Maybe I'm being selfish but better there than here. At least they are settling in the least desireable counties in the state. North and West Florida is still paradise.

I am a born and bred New Yorker looking to get out. Florida and South Carolina, at present, are our two choices. We have been trying to move out of NY for the last three years, but health problems have prevented that. However, I must tell you that everyone I know moving to Florida and South Carolina and also North Carolina are rock ribbed Trump conservatives. Not Rinos, but Conservatives. And we are all active in conservative politics, working for the Republican party when conservatives are running, and contributing to conservative candidates all over the nation. We have friends who have homes in both Florida and NY and they too are active Trump conservatives. So guys down south, the news isn't all bad. That said, I too am worried that too many democrats moving south will be bringing their noxious political policies with them and ruining wherever they go. So, y'all southerners, you aren't alone in your concerns about we yankees. But, I can tell you that where ever any of us move to we will continue to fight for conservative values and candidates.

In Colorado, we are seeing a lot of cars traveling on I70 having California, New York, and Illinois license plates. When I was at my local gym recently, I got to talking to a guy who is a real estate broker in my area. He said it's not just the remote learning thing that is driving people out of the dim states. People are fed up with political over-reach, corruption, and the cancel culture that is being forced on them in their home states. Also, since many people are now able to work remotely due to covid, they are buying house everywhere in states of interest to them especially in places where real estate prices are lower. In big towns, small towns, makes no difference. But, unfortunately they are bringing their politics with them.

I'll never forget going over to a women's dorm cafeteria (remember women's dorms?) the second day of college to have breakfast with some female HS friends. And above the low hum of normal polite meal conversation comes this LOUD nasal NYC Edith Bunker screetch..."Hey, Edith why do they have mashed potatoes for breakfast?" in that obnoxious NYC screetch that is somehow their trademark.

I can blame them for coming, poster #7. We can especially blame those who come to change Florida and other places into what they left in NY. It only takes a few minutes talking to Yankees to know if they've come to join us or to infiltrate us or arrogantly show us how to run things. Just to be safe, I still say, Yankees, go the heck home! We don't move to your states when things go bad; don't move to ours. The leftist kind always move to the most left leaning parts of the South. When I lived in NC, it was Charlotte and the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area. Here in SC, as poster #16 stated, it's Charleston.

I document these meetings, which have taken place over several years, in my book Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption, released May 18th.According to documents reviewed while researching for this book, these propagandists regulate Bloomberg LP and control the extent to which the former Democrat mega-donor-turned presidential candidate’s business can access the gigantic Chinese market.

Is planting misleading innuendo about oneself a good tool to sell the services of an information provider? In what other product category does one openly debase the quality as a means of gathering attention? Tucker Carlson, whose viewership is more than 4 times that of Don Lemon’s, likes to characterize the CNN host as stupid. That label certainly applies to the publicity stunt trick Lemon pulled on Friday night: “CNN Tonight” anchor Don Lemon announced Friday that “this will be the last night” of the show he’s hosted since 2014 (snip) "I’ll be back on Monday with my newly named show Don Lemon Tonight. See you Monday at 10pE."
