Blame Us For Bush County
Dimpled chads, anyone? Oh yea. That was us! And all it got the rest of the nation was eight years of unmitigated disaster, two wars, a blown up economy, and color-coded terror warnings. It also gave people fresh new material to make fun of Florida with. YOU'RE WELCOME, AMERICA!

Wasted Spring Breakers County
Clogged roadways filled with douchey privileged college bros drinking Smirnoff Ice and puking all over the A1A sidewalks for a whole week? Awww yea. Suck on THAT, Daytona!

Remember when Miami-Dade briefly changed to Miami-Wade during the summer of free agency? I suggest a permanent change to Broward-Bosh County.

This change could benefit local tourism. However, the cost of changing building signs, park signs, stationery etc would be borne by the public. It's much easier to quantify the estimated cost than the number of additional tourists. Same old story: socialized costs for privatized profits. If the beneficiaries of this expense had to pay for it by some kind of surtax, my guess is that it would be soundly rejected. Now, if somebody could make an argument that changing our brand name would raise all of our property values, the cost could be negligible compared to the overall benefit to the County in higher tax revenues.. The problem is that its pure speculation this change would have that kind of benefit. Did Miami-Dade benefit from the change? If so how much and who were the beneficiaries? How was it calculated and is the figure reliable?That same money could be spent on homeless shelters, school busses, park improvements etc.
