I live 10 minutes from Mountain Creek. I really like it here in NW NJ.I live in north west NJ. I call it the "not NJ part of NJ." Politicaly conservative, semi rural, under an hour away from skiing in PA, 2 hours to northern Catskills. Could not pay me to live in FL. CA, sure if you mean Mammoth Mountain.
Teach actual history, civics, and sure art and literature. But the (debunked) 1619 BS or the re-hashed 70's Derek Bell CRT? No, thats teaching false premises. So as for being afraid? Complete ( and verified) fear KK.public schools should'nt teach us history, world history, civics, literature, art, and music? you are that afraid of your child being educated into being a liberal? the one things public grade/high school doesn't seem to teach at all anywhere that they should, is personal finances.
yeah, smoking can get people riledOR maybe it caused it?
I'm with you though
I had never heard of The Villages, FL before this thread. Had to look it up. It's interior Florida, 20 or 30 miles north of Orlando.
There's definitely a cultural difference between the States losing population and gaining population:
This was pretty funny, there is a whole series of these :
Californians Adjust To New Life In TexasThis couple left California due to the cost of living, crime, taxes, etc. etc. etc. But now they're not so sure they can get used to living in Texas!babylonbee.com
But it’s a self-selected groups of “people”, from whereverpeople come to the state from all over the nation
On the flip side, there are plenty of folks, who moved to FL, and not just at retirement age, who really enjoy the various levels of the "FL lifestyle" (and that certainly encompasses everything from true redneck to ultra cosmopolitan high society) and never left.But it’s a self-selected groups of “people”, from wherever
I know of two couples who retired, moved to Florida and then moved back home (California, New Jersey respective). They were not ready to do nothing except “waiting to meet God” yet.
Mock them? No.On the flip side, there are plenty of folks, who moved to FL, and not just at retirement age, who really enjoy the various levels of the "FL lifestyle" (and that certainly encompasses everything from true redneck to ultra cosmopolitan high society) and never left.
Everyone has their own preferences, just like some of us skiers/riders like ripping corduroy whereas others are all about gnarly "no fall" super tech terrain.
If one is happy where they are in their lives, why should anyone mock them? Unless of course they are jealous of how they actually are miserable in their own lives and don't want to address their own situation because it seems "tough" verses it feeling easier to mock someone else whom they view as inferior?
They have the Everglades which is breathtaking - but otherwise, I'm kinda with youits not even a contest. florida.
i live in new jersey now. jersey city, which i kind of consider to be the sixth borough of NYC, but an ugly yellow license plate nonetheless. as a born and raised new yorker, i had disliking new jersey baked into me. but its really a bunch of nonsense. the jersey suburbs to the north and west of the city are actually quite nice. jersey has great access to nature within the state and a short drive away into NY and PA. jersey has easy access to two world class cities in NYC and Philly. jersey has hundreds of miles of great beaches, complete with a degenerate casino town.
california is expensive but wonderful. its physical beauty and variety of climate/terrain types is second to none in the united states. the skiing, beaches, and cities are all world class. california fucking rules.
florida is a piece of shit swamp full of shitty people. they have horrible politics. they have no seasons. they have no winter sports. their largest city miami is not culturally on par with other cities of its size and stature. the only thing florida has going for it is good tax policy, and golf if that's your thing.
