Just a note of thanks to those alums that work so hard on the Hall of Fame every year.

Latinos specifically Cubans are EXTREMELY racist towards Americans in Miami & they have gotten away with it for years thanks to the government.They come over here,get things for free,then gripe & moan about how horrible America & its people are then brag about how superior(lmfao)Cubans are.Id have to say from over a decade of experience, that most Cubans suffer from narcissistic personality disorder accompanied by grandiose delusions & are certifiably insane.

Troy commented on "25 Things You Must Know Before Moving to Miami"

This article is not even close to realty except a couple points like people being so slow in traffic which I hate.
The list you have is only your negative personal opinions far from some facts!
Here are some facts from someone who has been here for 22 years after living up in NJ for a year.. What part of Miami you live is VERY important like all other big cities..
Here are some facts..
- We do not have state tax, and city tax here in Miami unlike most of the big cities out there.
- Traffic, and parking is way better than other big cities.
- Because of the beautiful weather, People always have things to do unlike other big cities. All outdoor sport activities like soccer, tennis, basketball, and boating, attending festivals.
You can play tennis all year without paying a dime. I heard, they charge $70 per hour for tennis court fee. CRAZY!
- Amazing events all the time, Art Basel, Ultra Music Festival, Miami(Sonny) Open, NBA, NFL, MLB, and more..
- I live in Aventura, my daughter attends to a charter school(free) which ranks in top 50 in state..There are tons of activities, and parks for kids..
- You never feel an outsider here in Miami (I do not speak spanish)...

I can list tons of good things but honestly, I do not have time to write more…

Finally, someone with enough courage to speak the truth about Miami. I live in Atlanta and visited my friend one time who moved to Miami two years ago. OH HOLY HELL! WHAT A PIT! I spent eight days there in shock at what a third world country it resembled. I didn’t run into a single person who spoke English. Nor a single girl with blonde hair and blue eyes like myself. The language barrier was extreme. Just going through the fast-food drive-thru was a horrific experience. And oh my heavens, the shit holes of over-priced housing made me go into shock. When my friend lived here in Atlanta, she lived in a gorgeously appointed 1600 square foot townhouse, but when I visited her in Miami, the most she could get on her decent income was what one could equate to a 325 square foot, extremely run-down prison cell in Little Havana. She even had to park her car at an angle on the sidewalk. Unbelievable! Anyway, I was so disgusted with the entire place, I have not been back. I have no problem if anyone thinks I’m racist. The place is an absolute pit completely destroyed by the majority Latinos who live there. Shame on those in government who allow this.

Ive escaped commented on "25 Things You Must Know Before Moving to Miami"

Miami by the numbers:
[I havent updatd this list, I had other things to do such as moving to another city]

(Note: a ranking of 5 out of 10, for example does not mean that a city is “in the middle”. It means it is within the top 10 worst for a given category.)

9th in most unequal cities:
Not first or second, but hardly near the middle., especially when you consider this includes the entire United States and many smaller cities.

2nd in most miserable cities:

Unemployment rate:  11.2 %.
National average: 9.1 %
You can decide if you want to guess if there is addition unemployed “off the books” as Miami has a HUGE black market economy relative to other cities.

180 out of 200 in driver safety:
The Allstate Insurance Company (NYSE: ALL) today released its seventh annual “Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report™.” The report ranks America’s 200 largest cities in terms of car collision frequency to identify which cities have the safest drivers according to Allstate data.
In the 2011 report, Miami ranks as one of the least safe driving cities, landing at number 180 on the list. According to the report, the average driver in Miami will experience an auto collision every 7 years.

4th Rudest cities in America:

Rudest drivers 2 years in a row:
Data is a few years old, but can we then conclude the problem has magically resolved istself? i doubt it.

Highest ranking in medicare fraud:
“Federal authorities, in July of 2010 in conjunction with the first Healthcare Fraud Summit (taking place, rather symbolically, in Miami), led a crackdown in the 5 major U.S. cities that have the dubious recognition of being the largest Medicare fraud perpetrators: Miami, Brooklyn, Baton Rouge, Detroit, and Houston”.

2nd most stressful city, a multifactorial study:
“Miami has the highest violent crime rate in our study as well as one of the highest property crime rates. Making Miami even more stressful is the long commute time, a high unemployment rate, and a high rate of divorce. Despite these factors, Miami residents manage to maintain a positive mental attitude.”


My 2 cents worth:
That last sentence above is worth noting: perhaps the maintenance of a positive mental attitude allows Miamians to live in their own muck without any worries. But having seen the low level of civic involvement and poor government policy rampant in Miami, one has to ask if this “acceptance” is in fact part of the problem.

For those of who expect more, and actively create a better world, accepting this level of strife, crime and stupidity is not a positive attribute.

High crime, medicare and auto insurance fraud have consequences that accrue on other individuals. maintaining a “positive mental attitude” does not abrogate the consequences of these behaviors, even if the perps feel it abrogates their responsibility for same.

Keeping this in mind, things aren’t going to change here any time soon.

[it appears they havent.  ONE FINAL NOTE REGARDING LITERACY: I speak Spanish fluently, Im a gringo or “cracker” (and had been called that to my face by Cuban doctors in the hospital where I worked ‘jejeje”) AND THE ONLY ONE TO PASS THE TRANSLATOR’S EXAM FOR SPANISH ON MY FLOOR.  NONE of the native speakers were competent in standard Spanish.]

David Hecht commented on "Why Miami Traffic is So Bad (And How To Avoid It)"

You have a couple of directional errors here:
You say that “if you go five blocks west of Miami Ave. in downtown you are right in the middle of Biscayne Bay.”  Actually, you have to go 5 blocks EAST of Miami Ave. to get to the Bay.
You say, “by no means ever get on a major street going West during morning rush or East at night.”  Actually, you’ve got that exactly reversed: the heavy traffic from the Western suburbs toward downtown goes EAST in the morning; and the afternoon commute goes WEST.
You say that the Turnpike and NW 106 St. is “not far from the county line.”  Given that the county line is at NW 215 St., “not far” is correct compared to, say, a trip to New Jersey. wink
As for the street stones in Coral Gables (where I lived from 1963 to 1980): they never blow down in a hurricane!  And CG does in fact have normal street signs on poles throughout its commercial and high-traffic areas.
You didn’t mention Miami Beach.  Getting from 5th St. to 41st St. by taking Collins is an exercise in exhausting frustration.  Better to bypass South Beach by taking Alton.
Otherwise, very nice!  Thanks!  smile

Jobs are not scarce you just have to be there kind of people, that is the problem, they won’t admit it but they discriminate. If you did not graduate from the university of Miami and don’t speak the local language and know half of the county. you better go somewhere else there really arnt many places to run to when you get in trouble.
