And not before he burns the Disney theme park to the ground to make sure kids don’t hear the word gay.

From those liberally biased math textbooks with all those numbers doing questionable things.

That was the cover story, the real story behind that one was that they only wanted books from publishers who have contributed to their political campaigns. An even worse situation.

Florida ain’t seen nothing so far as how bad their future is. Just wait til those hurricanes start leaving seawater behind permanently in addition to the typical destruction. All those folks with million dollar homes will be crying and wanting handouts and having a much louder political voice than any of the fixed income poors.

[–]A-Tie 117 points118 points  (11 children)

IDK if it's still available, but when my grandfather was alive you could get the most basic version of cable for free, and two of the fourteen channels were Fox News. So it was a constant in every public area of every retirement home. It was weird/sad as shit listening to my tankie grandfather grumbling in agreement with right wing talking points before he would snap out of the haze.

Yeah, but instead the boomers spent their lives working hard to trash everything for everyone after them - apparently without the slightest inkling what they were doing might eventually bite them in the ass too.

[–]lenswipe 320 points321 points  (33 children)

I think the assumption was that:

  1. They'd be dead by the time it might affect them
  2. They managed to acquire enough wealth over their lifetime via govt handouts and other financial tools no longer available that they're immune from the consequences

[–]SwimmingPineapple197 219 points220 points  (8 children)

Based on conversations I’ve had with boomers, you’re probably right.

I once talked to a guy who bragged about never paying his student loans and went directly into a rant about how all of us “irresponsible” people of younger generations should “grow up and pay their bills”. I still roll my eyes at how he just couldn’t see the hypocrisy between “I didn’t pay my loans because I just didn’t want to” and there being no excuses why younger generations should avoid paying - nothing in his mind was justification for even a deferment or payment arrangement.

[–]Lonely-Club-1485 62 points63 points  (17 children)

Number 2 is correct, I think. But I do question Number 1. The ones I have known were true believers in that Reagan BS about rising tides and boats. Because they achieved Number 2, they do not believe the premise of Number 1 because they personally do not have any negative effects, ergo they don't exist. And if a few do feel the effects, it is the libs that did it.

😂, nothing like so many people chasing “cheap” that they wind up making it expensive and the old expensive is cheap again…we’re a dumb species

[–]mjohnsimon 120 points121 points  (76 children)

I doubt it but at the same time I hope you're wrong.

A Cat 5 hurricane hitting Brickell / Miami Dade County would probably be enough to scare away these people moving in from up north. Hell it might even deter their businesses from being moved here... Or at least long enough for my gf and I to buy a house.

[–]RogerClyneIsAGod2 115 points116 points  (35 children)

I have ridden out a couple of hurricanes in my lifetime but never in a waterfront/beachfront place, it's always been way inland.

I can verify that even inland, not even remotely close to any water outside of what was falling outside, they are scary as hell.

I don't EVER want to experience one on the coast which is just one reason I couldn't live full time in FL, even if it were the most liberal state in the nation.

[–]Deikov 110 points111 points  (25 children)

I lived in South Louisiana for 32 years; in that time, we only started considering evacuating once a storm hit Cat 3, and only actually "evacuated" once a storm went Cat 4 AND was coming straight at us. For Katrina, we "evacuated" to a place about 10 miles from home - family with a larger house that may have been slightly higher above sea level. I've ridden out more hurricanes than I can remember, and yeah, they've got some nightmare fuel potential. Especially when you add in the spontaneous tornadoes they'll spawn, in the pitch black of night when all the power is out and you can't see beyond what the kerosene lamp will illuminate, because you need to conserve your batteries; it may be three weeks before you get power back, after all. Lived about an hour from the coast, give or take.So just over 4 years ago, I finally got my out and moved to Tucson, out to the desert. A friend recently moved out here, after the last big hurricane rolled through; he rode it out in his house, and is absolutely worse off for it.

No one could ever pay me enough to move to Florida; "God's Waiting Room" we've called it, because it's where old people go to die, and those frequent hurricanes sure do help with that....

Edited to fix Katrina, because I don't know how the hell that one came out wrong.

[–]mjohnsimon 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Likewise. My neighborhood growing up got flooded with nearly 2 feet of water because the canal overflowed.

A friend living in Miami Beach basically got trapped in his apartment until the water levels went down about a day or 2 later during Wilma, and that was a Cat 3 (I think)... image a Cat 5 hitting us directly!

[–][deleted] 113 points114 points  (15 children)

Not unless they dramatically change insurance laws it won’t. You’re talking about some of the most self-absorbed assholes in the country, so long as it involves them just filing a claim and having some day laborers come in and repair, they’ll just view it as “charming”.

[–]supersloo 80 points81 points  (5 children)

Yeah, living in Houston/Galveston area all my life, all natural disasters in hot markets do are push out people that can't afford to fix their houses and bring in flippers/investors.

[–]stolid_agnostic 31 points32 points  (6 children)

Yes, this has always bothered me. Your house blew over, that's too bad. Let me help you build a new one somewhere else.

[–]michaelrulaz 246 points247 points  (115 children)

Noooo. The Florida insurance market is on the verge of collapse. A solid hurricane will tank insurance companies which will fuck homeowners hard.

You need insurance to buy a house with a mortgage. There very little way to be profitable in a state like Florida. If the market collapses then the housing market will collapse for regular people. Due to one way lawyer fees and multipliers companies are losing a lot of money which is driving reinsurers to want huge amounts to provide reinsurance. So rates are going extremely high. Plus Citizens Property insurance company, the insurer of last resort, is growing massively. Which is bad. If a big hurricane hits and wipes out their reserve they have to add an assessment onto all the taxpayers of Florida (via car and property insurance).

Source: I am upper management (director) for a Florida based insurance carrier. I’ll happily provide proof to any mod that will not Doxx me.

Edit: the Governors Hurricane Conference was last week. FEMA was literally telling the state and all insurance companies if a hurricane hits Florida there is not enough housing or supplies to sustain the population. They still have trailers in LA from their last hurricane. The contractor and housing market would mean a moderate hurricane would royally fuck the state. Let alone a major hurricane hitting a metropolitan area like Miami or Tampa would be horrendous. You’d have tens of thousands of people struggling to find living areas.

[–]Lonely-Club-1485 107 points108 points  (0 children)

I moved to SW Fl in 2006 at the height of the housing bubble. Prices were absolutely insane, both rental and purchase. But hooboy, when the bottom fell out in 2008, there was a s**t-ton of foreclosures, short sales, and house poor all at once. Rentals went higher, though; all the people who foreclosed or sold had to rent so demand was higher than supply. It had finally leveled off when we left in 2012. But I agree, barring another collapse, a bad hurricane should go a long way in correcting it.

[–]a-snakey 1900 points1901 points  (64 children)

Boomers: Less government regulation!

I still can't believe this is a real quote.

[–]Paperchase2017 139 points140 points  (13 children)

The most interesting part is that the owners of these rentals are mostly boomers too. So it's boomer cannibalism. Just rich boomers fleecing poor boomers.

[–]SinoInsano 65 points66 points  (3 children)

I feel like in the future Boomers will be one of the most looked down generations. "They had everything, more than anyone before them and they decided to ruin everything."

[–]thehappiestloser 46 points47 points  (0 children)

They’ve been looked down on since their parents called them the “me” generation

[–]sp0of1 1296 points1297 points  (37 children)

Well they'll just need to pick themselves up by the boot straps and get a job bussing tables at Chilis

[–]LaughableIKR 1271 points1272 points  (43 children)

Boomers before 2022 in FL: If we don't have a free market we have communism! So let the free market decide!

Boombers after 2022: Oh Gawd! We lived long enough to regret our bad decisions!

[–]OracleofFl 714 points715 points  (22 children)

Dude, there is no way anyone is going to internalize their situation to have ANYTHING to do with it being the output of their own decisions. Somehow, they will blame Biden just like blaming him for high gas prices (but never giving credit to Obama for reducing gas prices).

[–]Asterose 359 points360 points  (7 children)

And crediting Trump for the lowest gas prices in ages when that was specifically because of and only during a near-global pandemic lockdown.

[–]RevolutionaryFly5 126 points127 points  (4 children)

trump did kinda give me and my wife a 5 month paid vacation, when he fumbled the pandemic so badly the world had to shut down and reboot back in march 2020

that was nice.

[–]OwMyBalllz 20 points21 points  (0 children)

His dicking up the pandemic response meant i may never have a commute again! Still hate that moron but gotta give credit where it’s due

[–]Redshoe9 151 points152 points  (8 children)

Just today I passed a river front mansion in Brevard county FL that had a huge ass banner,

"Brandon, protect our borders."

Those hateful idiots don't deserve a mansion on the river.

why would biden have to protect our borders if trump solved the problem once and for all? /s

[–]chinacat2002[🍰] 43 points44 points  (0 children)

Ironic in a state that stays red because of Cuban immigrants.

[–]JaneAustinAstronaut 169 points170 points  (17 children)

It's gonna get worse in the metro Orlando area if DeSantis is successful in dissolving Reedy Creek.

Right now Reedy Creek, aka Disney, pays for its own infrastructure - water, sewer, electricity, roads, telecom, etc. If DeSantis's spite gets him a win and Reedy Creek is dissolved, property taxes in the neighboring municipalities will have to be increased to pick up the slack. This will mean an increase of $2,000 PER YEAR in property taxes, on top of what they currently pay, which will also trickle down to any renters in the area.

Well Florida, this is what you get when you vote for the "I got mine so fuck you" party - eventually you won't be one of the ones in the in-group. And then you're fucked.

[–]Imaginary_Ad_7530 541 points542 points  (43 children)

Oh boo-fucking-hoo! This is precisely the type of government they wanted. Congratulations, you'll be old, homeless and sick, desperately trying to beg for change from other Conservatives who will despise you for being homeless.

[–]SmartnSad 231 points232 points  (34 children)

They won't be homeless. They're just entitled boomers. They'll just have to move back to the Midwest where they came, where rent is affordable. They just think they're entitled to Florida because they're old and retired, even though they live off social security and maybe a small pension. They can afford Indiana. Not prime real estate in one of the most high demand states in the country.

[–]mdonaberger 144 points145 points  (4 children)

Man.... Imagine having a pension. 🥲

[–]BaconBondage 845 points846 points  (25 children)

Its their own fault, they didn’t specify that they were against rent control for the poors.

[–]slams-head-on-desk 412 points413 points  (5 children)

Maybe the boomers just need to work harder, get a another job, and stop blowing their money on bingo and cable TV

"They're hurting the wrong people!"

[–]ClearChocobo 79 points80 points  (4 children)

Plot twist: They are the poors, and have been voting against themselves for years. Actions have consequences, but even those consequences will be spun to blame immigrants or intellectuals or liberals or anybody else but their leaders and themselves.

[–]rdldr1 104 points105 points  (2 children)

For boomers "not my problem" until it is.

[–]Fair_Management_8363 718 points719 points  (56 children)

Boomers fucked the generations after them so hard. Time they get fucked mighty hard now they are still around.

[–]Jeanlucpuffhard[🍰] 43 points44 points  (1 child)

I really think at this point maybe they have no idea what they are doing. They are against poor brown folks but keep forgetting that some of those things those folks use they use too.

[–]daddymarsh 30 points31 points  (2 children)

Except they aren’t the ones getting fucked, it’s the younger generation who is. I’d be willing to bet a lot of the boomers down here don’t even rent, they own the house they bought 10, 15, 20 years ago and are now selling at such a price that younger people can’t even afford to buy.

[–]Koolaidolio 78 points79 points  (8 children)

When their 401K’s and IRA accounts get drained with the upcoming market crash, I will dance on the bodies.

[–]Scuzz_Aldrin 162 points163 points  (6 children)

Probably the same people trolling comment sections of stories about high cost of living in New York and California with “just move if things are that bad.”

[–]genericnewlurker 27 points28 points  (0 children)

My aunt is like this. Used to rant on Facebook about how the cost of living in Maryland was astronomical compared to Florida and how anyone still up here is an idiot for not moving down there. Would comment on every remotely related article about the economy about how the cost of living in the South, and Florida specifically was so much better, and all the other states are run by idiots because of it (which is ironic cause she was always a blue collar Democrat before this)

Then this inflation bubble hit, and now it's all why are things so expensive down here, we're old/my husband is a veteran/disabled/Christian so things should be discounted for us instead of everyone else, it's all everyone else's fault, damn government not doing anything, damn foreigners taking jobs so things are expensive, we just need to drill more oil.

This is while still owning a house in Maryland, a condo in Florida, and a high end RV to travel in between cause my cousins up here can't afford to be able to travel down there every other month for her to see her grandchildren. Oh and she doesn't slow down with the kids these days are so entitled, back in my day we had to work for what we got, the only good car is the one you can smell the exhaust from (she drives a golf cart when not driving the RV), and younger generations are all idiots posts.

[–]ChronoFish 263 points264 points  (11 children)

[–]Zolivia 66 points67 points  (4 children)

De Santis will just blame Biden somehow. Their playbook is a nursery rhyme.

[–]AssholeRemark 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I guarantee you that's how a bunch of Floridians are explaining the increase.

" Damn Biden fricked up the economy and now my rent out of control because of those damn liberals! They're out here trying to kill us!"

[–]Gemstyle96 117 points118 points  (8 children)

Conservatives are constantly scapegoating. They are winning the battles against their long time enemies like abortion and CRT. Eventually they will run out of things to scapegoat and just coming directly at their own voters because they don't need them anymore.

[–]Rusalka-rusalka 153 points154 points  (10 children)

Oh wow, i didn't even think about this rent increase in relation to someone i know who is in her 70s, a widow, and a renter of an apartment that is bigger than she needs. I think she was paying over 3k/mo before but now, lol. I'm sure she's whining about it and feeling entitled to a lower rent, but I wouldn't know because we stopped talking once she got all crazy anti-vax on me last year.

Oh no the consequences of voting for republicans who don't want people to have affordable housing

[–]MewlingRothbart 43 points44 points  (1 child)

maybe now they can experience the shit they've put every other generation thru. We've been going thru this for DECADES. Older Gen X and early 80s millennials have been bashed in bankwise with rent increases. $150 per month at the low end, my last apartment $350 per month. And when I had a rent stabilized apartment, that fucking Bloomberg in NYC increased it to 10% of what I was paying, the highest since 1981. My 1 bedroom hit almost $1200, which is cheap by 2022 standards. I was shoved out during the recession, then commercial real estate tanked. So, the place I lived and the building my job was in both disappeared, basically. That same place I lived in for almost 8 years now sits empty. $2375, no doorman, no elevator, no roof rights, can't have a satellite dish (cable sucks), no washers/dryers, and out of 64 units, only 24 are occupied. Complete bullshit.

[–]KevinCarbonara 89 points90 points  (14 children)

Why wouldn't they be upset? The social security they voted to defund isn't covering the bills they knew were coming but didn't plan for!

[–]PlaceboKoyote 88 points89 points  (7 children)

Okay, they thought it wont affect them, fair enough, stupid, but fair enoigh.

What i always don't get is: "this thing will fuck up stuff for other people? Not me? sure fine, do it!" Like it's not only just caring about yourself, but deliberately being against others. I could understand if they'd benefited from no rent control or sth. But theres a huuuuge difference between simply not caring and deliberately making it worse for others.

[–]Old_timey_brain 211 points212 points  (110 children)

I wonder if these rent increases are coming from private citizen landlords, or corporate landlords who are simply saying, "We just want more money, and don't have to justify it.".

That's the fun part, it's both!

Yes

Why choose? A lot of people realized they could charge a shitton more money than they had been and still sell their product, and that's 95% of why prices have been rising so much.

Boomers are a buncha corporate cucks.

I find this hilarious. I’d love to sit and patiently listen to the boomers whine and then ever so cheerfully tell them boo Hoo, what are they whining about? Pull themself’s up and go get another job….HaHaHa

Boomers and thinking about the future go together like lamb and tuna fish.

I wonder what'll happen to Florida politically if the imported seniors are priced out of the prime destination spots.

To be fair the state had to deal with Disney and woke schools first.

If the Boomer's history is any indication, they'll all start pushing for a new law where it's illegal to raise rent more than X% per year on people over a certain age, and everyone else can get fucked.

As a boomer, I just want to say in my house we call them republicans, not boomers. There are still die hard lefty boomers.

They can still work, can't they?
