I ran across an article that Pasco county is considering a ‘tent city’ to handle the large number of homeless in that county, because things have gotten so bad. I think the article is a bit misleading. The only reference as to whom is considering this tent city is a quote from the head of “Pasco County Continuum of Care.” That organization is not a part of any government. It is a nonprofit that is dedicated to serving the homeless. (Community Organizing) So it isn’t Pasco county that’s considering it, it’s a charity organization that is considering it.

This is where my post today goes from facts to largely being speculation on my part. Some of what you are about to read is anecdotal, and some based upon fact. We are seeing some interesting shifts in the Sunshine-Gunshine State.

I think that if there really are more homeless in Pasco county, that it’s a reflection on population shifts that we have seen here since 2020. Since the COVID lockdowns, there has been a huge influx of people of all economic levels from the northern states.

I know it’s anecdotal, but there seem to be many more people here than normal. There are many more “off color” license plates here than normal, and they aren’t leaving. This isn’t like our normal snowbird migrations. I keep seeing younger and younger people running around here, getting into cars with out of state plates while carrying golf clubs, looking as though they are retired. The grocery stores, restaurants, and other facilities are packed with out of state people. My theory is that we are being overrun by people who came here to escape their home states’ lockdowns, and many of them never left.

A few that I have been able to speak to tell me that they are “working from home” as they chuckle about how they moved here and got an apartment for far less money than they pay “up north” while they are collecting northern city wages. This is having a huge effect on the Florida economy, and is causing severe disruptions down here.

Home prices and rental rates are skyrocketing. Homes that were worth $250,000 in 2019 are now seeing their values topping $400,000. Rental rates in the state are continuing to climb at double digit rates, even as rents in other states decline. The statewide median sale price in Florida for single-family homes in 2022 was $402,500, up 15.7% year-over-year. For condo-townhouse units, it was $306,500, up 21.6% year-over-year. It isn’t a bubble in the classic sense- no one is panic buying. Prices are climbing, even though sales are falling.

As all of you know, we have been looking for a new home. Talking to real estate people, they say that sales are still strong. One agent I spoke with told me that he normally closes one or two homes a month, but has gotten contracts on two homes in the first six days of February already.

People are fleeing Florida’s cities for its smaller towns. The hottest markets right now are:

  • Marco Island: A community where a million dollar home is on the poor side of town and a condo will cost you $700k. Condos are reaching $600 a square foot!
  • Venice: This is where a house will cost you between $600k and a million, and mobile homes go for $150k. Can you imagine paying $150 a square foot for a trailer?
  • Dunedin: Another expensive beach town where condos sell for more than $200 a square foot.

So all of this is putting pressure on the people at the low to mid end of the economic spectrum. Housing prices are skyrocketing. That is why IMO, there is a huge push for people getting out of the Democrat controlled cities and into smaller towns.

The huge influx of people from liberal northern states and the shift of more conservative locals into small towns is going to change Florida’s electoral landscape in 2024. What it will do is anyone’s guess. I’m guessing that the liberal cities will become larger and more spread out, which will make the liberal areas expand, while the smaller towns will see less of an impact. Still, Floridians tend to be a funny lot. Time will tell.

I wish that article had more numbers and details on their survey.
Also, note that the national drop they cite is about $50/month in 8 months. That is small enough that methodology matters – big drops in 1 or 2 weighted metro areas could do it.
I talked with friends in East Texas at Christmas; the economy there and in Houston is booming, with employment and housing going like crazy. According to the article, Oklahoma is also doing well.
I need to look for employment numbers nationally to learn more about which population and job movements.

The Long March to bring about an internal communist revolution in the FUSA.
After the war of attrition the sheeple will sign off on the “peaceful” dictatorship of the proletariat.
West South Africa will be even worse.

Which is why I’m a fan of voting restrictions.

Federal election – IF you’re a US citizen, no matter where you are in US, you can vote. Ex – I move from CA to FL, I can vote immediately in the Federal election.

State election – you must be a resident of the state in which you want to vote at least 3 years before your ballot counts. To understand the flavor of the state and why things are the way they are. Ex – I move from CA to FL, while I still get to vote immediately in the federal election, I can’t vote in any FL state election for 3 years.

Local election – you must be a local for at least 5 years before voting in a local election, premise the same as state. Ex – I move from Tampa to Panama City, I have to wait at least 5 yrs before voting local. Again, to understand the local issues and not brow-beat (out-vote) the locals.

Will it happen?? We can’t even get our federal elections under control, so probably not.

The “electoral landscape” is going to matter in 2024 as much as it did in 2020 and 2022: nothing.

All that is over.

Fraud and the word covers a large range of fraudulent shenanigans to be carried out by the powers that be and their accomplices, enablers, thugs, goons and orcs is all that counts, now.

Those that call themselves “American Patriots” need not apply. Our opinion doesn’t count for zilch. Naaaaaada!! . . . . . . . . .

America is dead. This is AINO-Venezuerica, now. A third world banana “republic” in the hands of a mafia that amuses itself looking at the gullible ex-Americans run around talking about “fixing things” Fix the elections. Fix education. Fix the FBI. Fix corruption. You can’t “fix” a third world banana “republic” in the hands of mafias. Unless you get rid of the mafias and re-found and re-dedicate the Constitutional Republic.

This is a runaway train that can only end in disaster.

Here’s something to ponder about:

If somebody wants you to live as their prisoner in a plastic pod, masked forever, even when alone taking a bath, as a sign of submission, taking poison vaxx NottaVaccine genetic slow-kill bioweapons to depopulate the Earth from “excess” humans, eating bugs, with no private means of transportation nor the right to go anywhere unless specifically mandated to, with permanent, non-optional audio and video recordings of every second of your life, with no real money but behavioral dependent tokens, with faceless bureaucrats judging every word and twitch of yours to “score” you and either allow you a few tokens as reward for being a “goooood booooy!!” or to punish you as they fancy depriving you of whatever they want to withhold from you because they can and you have no recourse, being given every single second of your life what passes for “news” but is only animal training and indoctrination and with zero human freedom but only the range of an animal in a techno-zoo-bio-lab-jail-concentration-camp-ant-hill and always having to mind being very, very obedient and meek or your life will be even more of a living hell than it is . . . . . . it is not by trying to talk them out of pushing you into such inhuman ruin and misery and torture that you will avoid that fate worse than death but by killing them.

Because such a monster is not interested in your input about anything but she is a medieval Dark Ages torturer that only longs to cause you pain for the enjoyment she knows she will derive from your squirming and moaning and braying.

When somebody wants to tie you to a table and apply red hot irons to your skin just to see and hear and enjoy what happens to you, you have to understand that it is not business as usual.

Now replace “apply red hot irons to your skin” with “apply wokeism to your life”

There is no talking, no voting, no “democracying”, no tolerance, no open mindedness, no even humanity to it.

You are dealing with an alien species that hates you and wants to torture you to death that you need to extinguish.

You do have to kill them. All of them. That’s all there is to it. Nothing less will do.

No dreaming of past better times, no three-wise-monkeys, no recourse, no appeal.

We are at war. The sooner people understand, the better.

99% of what passes for business as usual is just kabuki for the mind control of the ants in the ant-hill.

We are the ants. The ant-hill is AINO-Venezuerica.

AINO-Venezuerica doesn’t hold elections. It holds kabuki performances. People dance around. The mafias laugh. And the results were decided way BEFORE the kabuki-“elections” Your “vote” is a fake input in a system that only sees you as cattle. On the other side of the “voting” machine is a tube to the sewers of history.

Can’t remember now exactly where I saw it, but according to somebody or other, around 18-20% of new refugees to FLA register as D卐M☭CRATs. No matter how you look at it, that’s a good sign, I think, albeit counterintuitive for anybody who’s lived in an area that suddenly found itself beset by a swarm of shitlib locusts fleeing the nests they already befouled.
