Reader Jonathan asks if I live in a suburb because he lives 200 miles from the nearest town. I guess that depends on your definition of a suburb. Miriam Webster defines a suburb as a smaller community adjacent to or within commuting distance of a city.

So what is a reasonable commuting distance? In wide open country, 50 miles is an hour’s drive. In more densely populated areas, it isn’t unusual for it to take an hour to drive 10 miles. Using the IRS definition of commuting distance of 50 miles, there is no place that you can live in the entire state of Florida that is more than 50 miles from a city. Why is that? Because the entire state is only 140 miles wide from beach to beach, with cities on both coasts and in the center of the state, so it’s rather difficult to be more than 50 miles from anything. That would make the entire state either city or suburb, but that is demonstrably not the case.

A great example of this could be southern Osceola county and the town of Yeehaw Junction. This is an area of chicken farms and cattle ranches. The entire town has a population of 240 people. Technically a part of the Orlando-Kissimmee Metropolitan Statistical Area, it is located less than 50 miles from the nearest city.

The Turnpike exit at Yeehaw Junction is notable for being the only exit on a nearly 90-mile stretch of the Turnpike, being located at the southern end of the longest stretch of limited-access highway without an exit in the United States (the next interchange to the north being 48.9 miles away at Kissimmee/St. Cloud) and the northern end of the second-longest such stretch, the next exit to the south being 40.5 miles away at Fort Pierce. It is about as remote as you can get in Florida. Get in any sort of trouble in this area, and you are screwed. Police, fire, and EMS help is 30 minutes or more away, and the nearest hospital is an hour’s journey from there. Yeehaw Junction is considered remote enough that in 1968 the government purposely released biological warfare agents over the town without the knowledge of town residents, although the entire experiment was kept a secret until 2002. The project was called Project 112

Project 112 was supposed to be conducted outside of the US, but it has since come to light during a Congressional investigation in 2002 that there were experiments conducted all over Florida, including:

  • Avon Park
  • Boca Raton
  • Eglin Air Force Base
  • Fort Pierce
  • Panama City
  • Yeehaw Junction

It’s hard to imagine that Fort Pierce and Boca Raton are considered rural, but the CIA and the military were perfectly fine with using Bio weapons on US citizens just so they could see what would happen.

Even then, the CIA won’t release many details about the operation, not even to Congressional oversight committees. The entire project was approved by agencies that eventually would become the FDC and the CDC, so don’t think that the government is above conducting experiments on the US public.

The US government, in concert with the UK, Canada, and other nations actually committed what would be a war crime, yet they want us to believe that COVID was an accident, because they would NEVER release biological warfare agents as a test.

Our government is evil, and it is long past time that it collapse.

My take on Rural.

#1 Where you can have chickens and a Rooster, and the neighbors look forward to your extra eggs.

#2 Where you can call your neighbor while your “in the city” and have them walk into your house and check that you didn’t leave the water going. AND if it was, they’d clean it up and laugh at you later.

#3 Where neighbors actually check on each other if they notice you’ve not checked your mail lately. (Actually had that happen last week). Bonus points if neighbors show up with their snowblower if your struggling with the driveway.

#4 Where a “Few downed trees” might make city folks start walking OR better yet turn around and go back to their nasty city.

I had a college room mate who was from Queens NYC. He was a stereotypical New Yawker in every sense of the word. To him the urban sprawl of suburban Philadelphia was “the countryside”. He thought Philadelphia itself was just a town or small city. He considered actual countryside to be wilderness and wilderness to be “wasteland”, and the idea of being in any sort of natural environment horrified him. In his mind, NYC was the finest city and the ideal place for a human being to live, chiefly because of the mystique about “city that never sleeps” and being able to obtain anything you want at any hour of the day. I used to tell him this was over rated, but what do I know.

    We had a friend and his girlfriend visit; she was from the heart of NYC. She could not stand the silence of our farm; it drove her nuts.

    Also, I only called 911 once when two punks were breaking into my neighbors cabin up the mountain; it took 42 minutes for them to show up, and by then I had chased the young men off.

All governments are charismatic mobsters providing cover for Batman villains.

If we define rural in terms of emergency service response time, then increasingly large portions of cities are becoming “rural.”

Huh. Seems like something else I’ve heard of…

Been here going on 19 years. Sometimes I go more than a year without hearing a new siren. Never had a Trick or Treater. But I can get to the mall in under15 minutes. Since Radio Shack died, I Don’t, but, meh.. I don’t mow up by the road until the wildflowers are done and have seeded out,give the bugs and birds what they want, screw the rest of the world,,

Pappy moved to Okeechobee and loved it, calling it Shangri-La in America.
I would say 50 miles or more from any city but there are Cultural Marxist EDU indoctrination centers out there.
A bud of 20+ years moved out that way right before the Stig Beal and there are two commie campuses in that county.
The CPUSA (D) college comrades don’t venture very far inland from the interstate gas stations and strip mall complexes.

The REAL information (IMO) is towards the end of DM’s post. The information of how bad and for how long the government has been trying to kill us….. and we continue to abide and sleep…… even amongst the posts above, the troubling information was overlooked…..

yeah. right. back in 1948 I think it was the DOD did a little test in NYC.
they released a virus /germ/bug in the subway. granted the virus are something not found in that area
and “safe” . they found inside of 24 or 48 hours, the air moved by the subway pushed it all over the city. funny that bit. anyway. this happen just a few years after they bought the cook book from the Jap doctor that ran unit 731 I think it was. a bioweapons unit that killed thousands in Korea and China during WW2
the weird/funny part is that the State dept. where the ones that bought the cook book and let the asshole get away with his crimes. I think paid him well and hid his ass too.
and giess who state was best buddies with back then ? go on guess.
the state guys where best friends with the OSS- CIA clowns
funny that bit.
