I had in motion plans to depart the State of Florida before Covid hit. My motivation was that there is a "Florida Tax" in the form of exposure to hurricanes and, if you're not really enjoying the beach there's no reason to pay it.
Compounding that was what I had repeatedly seen with my own eyes -- it was not an "anecdote" -- on contractor and other fraud within the State. Uninsured motorists were never arrested, especially if illegal aliens, and as a result UIM car insurance was ridiculously expensive and getting more-so. Due to the prevalence of contractor frauds with regard to construction standards and similar -- and the outright complicity of the county inspectors, one of whom literally did a drive-by inspection on permitted work on my house and it was done wrong but of course not flagged, homeowners insurance was ridiculous and getting worse. Every storm laid this bare when someone who had a "new roof" put on, or had a new house that allegedly was built to modern codes, was stripped by said storm and the alleged "secondary barrier" was not there and in some cases even the hurricane clips weren't.
Everyone in the State pays for those frauds. Since the only people who can bring criminal charges are the cops, and they never do, that is effectively endorsed criminality -- the "private parties" commit the crimes and the government doesn't give a crap, endorsing it and of course then claims that as GDP and loves it in that it generates sales taxes and more.
What has been done about this? Nothing, and spare me the "oh he was too new then" garbage with DeSantis because he's had plenty of time now, hasn't he, to start throwing people in prison!
But there was also this other factor too, which has a relatively new article but the law in question is 30 years old and, as my daughter aged out of the bracket where she could go after someone it was definitely time to leave because if that had ever impacted me personally I would have run the scoreboard and started with every single medical person even tangentially responsible and continued onward until someone shot me.
It's known as the "free kill" law and yes, its as bad as you think it is.
It was routinely exploited over the last three years, and probably is still being exploited today if you happen to get the Coof.
What it says is that unless you have a spouse, are 25 or less, or have a minor child under 25 nobody else can sue on your behalf for pain and suffering if a medical practice kills you.
Your parents can't, unless you're a child.
“Right now, there’s no reason for doctors to do better when they’ve messed up in cases of someone being single, divorced or widowed, and having no minor child.” Davis said.
That's what your Governor thinks is ok, Florida.
Heh, its just your life, and heh, this just applies more to Seniors than anyone else, doesn't it?
Congratulations on your Rah-rah-rah when it comes to DeSATAN.
Fuck him and his entire false and maliciously so "pro-life" family bullshit.
