More brightline in my life, please! More trains passing through Stuart! More freight! More trains! More stops! More bridge closings! And all thanks to the economic lifeblood that is the great city of Miami!

Pete, this is the perfect example of "that's not how we do it up north". What makes YOU, a recent transplant, think trains are the solution? Just because the area you escaped from uses trains? Don't you see the irony there?

Cronced said it correctly in his Freudian slip.."miami is the most important city IN SOUTH FLORIDA". Not Florida, but south Florida. The exact issue. At one time Miami was an integral part of the state. Now, it's developed this separatist, adversarial relationship.

So tell me again why you want a second train running to Orlando when you don't even have any intention of riding it?

You just showed how little *you* know. Where I "came from" (as you so nastily put it)... did away with trains 40 years ago with the exception of getting to NYC, which has become nothing but a hassle.

The train stations in the towns I lived in have either been torn down or converted to bakeries. LOL. You really have NO idea what *YOU* are talking about on this one. In a State like Florida... when so much of the infrastructure is along 2-3 main arteries, a train makes fantastic sense. I don't know what your reason is for not liking it, and if it's because you lost a loved one or something, or had a ED claim, or something - I'm sorry for that... but you need to learn that sooner or later economic viability is going to come from someplace other than growth. I find this most comical in speaking with you on the topic because you are the one that doesn't like growth -- yet you fail to understand that growth will happen regardless. But in your world, once the growth happens and there is nowhere left to go, the economy of the rail will be a defining variable in the towns with high millage rates v. the towns that don't.

The simple reality of it is that easy and efficient public transportation (or private mass transportation) creates better economies... and from better economies come revenue from sources OTHER than property owners.

I can ABSOLUTELY assure you, that "where I came from" they did the complete opposite. They want revenue from the homeowner and they don't care who suffers.

Next time you pull the "where you came from" card -- I suggest you sit down and close your mouth and look beyond your own myopic little world.

Think before you speak. Or our great State WILL end up like the cesspool that is the NE.

LOL.. "our state". Pete, you don't know shit about Florida. You're a transplant who got rid of "the train", except the one to New York City. Sorry, but you are NOT a "floridian", just a yankee transplant who moved to south Florida.

I agree... I love listening to a certain hypocrite in "Stuart" who is in the trades - and brags about it - complaining about all the development. LOL. I wonder if he could keep bragging without all the development that he hates so much. That ought to shut the hypocrite up.

I'm still working on my Ionization Transporter Machine that will revolutionize personal transportation. Imagine, depart West Palm at 10:10:000 AM and arrive Disney, CALIFORNIA at 10:10:001 AM! I'm looking for investors - send money. Cash accepted!

I'm not a "builder"..only built one house down here, the one I live in. They ones you refer to are developers..they scrape acres of land clear, reslope it, and re-landscape it. McMansions and big houses on postage stamp lots. Levittown of the south. It's called urban spread, and it's detestable. Detestable, unimaginative, cheap. Progressive thinking adapts existing properties, or modernizes them.

Point is..railroads are old technology. Monorail is the future. Why is everyone so hung up on ancient technology?. Moving heavy crap, like containers and cars, rail wins. People? Monorail of some design. And, at some point ya gotta realize Brightline management is full of shit. They have done virtually nothing they proposed, and are losing money on projects they fulfilled. Their projections are beyond laughable. Hopefully Branson will pull Brightlines head out of its ass.

Oh, I apologize. I didn't know that you don't do work for any new residents or work on any newer homes or the like. If I had known that you screened all the people you work for to ensure that they are only long-time residents that only lived in "original" homes... that would be different.

Do tell, how do you do the renovations on those teepees? Is there a screening process to ensure that your clients were:
  • Ais.
  • Apalachee.
  • Calusa.
  • Creek.
  • Miccosukee.
  • Seminole.
  • Timucua.
  • Yemassee.
Get off the bullcrap high horse already. It's silly.

Pete, you're becoming the poster child for the typical NJ transplant. You don't live in "Florida", you live in south Florida. Florida disappeared there decades ago. I haven't lived in Ft. Lauderdale since 1970, btw. Yes, I know a little of the history also. There's isolated pockets of "old Florida" remaining, but even those are slowly being turned into "Boca style" monstrosities for gullible northerners to purchase.

You understand the difference between south Jersey and north Jersey? Well, Florida is the same. South Florida is north Jersey.

For anyone interested, there is a distinct set of rules and thought practices for living in Florida. These include, but are not limited to...

Where you can live and call it "Florida" or "South Florida".
How long you can live in Florida and still not be considered a Floridian.
Types of acceptable architecture.
Types of acceptable transportation.
Correct ways of thinking about the world you live in.
Cultures which are deemed "negative".
Parts of the state that people do or do not care about.

For information on these and any other topics, contact bitterbeerface. If you don't know how to contact this person, just make a post on the Florida and Georgia section of THT and mention some positive aspects of Dade or Broward counties. You will be hearing from this person soon enough.

Ok... so you're evading the part about only doing work for the tribes, and instead insulting me. Got it.

If you like it, fine. Stop trying to force your ideals on the rest of the state. THIS is the issue. Your self righteous attitude knowing what's good for everyone.
