Miami was already a haven for Jews. This time from Venezuela, last time from New York City. ;)

Also for Jew-like New Yorkers who happened to be Gentiles. :BigGrin3:

Can I take it that there is no symbolism or other hidden meaning connected to this post coming on the heals of a few posts on an invasive species?

You realize that if the story was about Africans you'd be a racist by now, right?
You have a dirty mind. Rest assured I abide by Cipolla's theorem: you can split humanity by any criterion, age, sex, income, nationality, hair color, &c., there will always be the same proportion of cunts.

And that number is always greater than you think it is.

Former Mrs. Florida Karyn Turk headed to prison for stealing mom's checks

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- A federal judge in Florida ordered Mrs. Florida 2016 to spend a month in jail for stealing her mother's Social Security checks rather than using the money to pay for nursing home care.

U.S. Magistrate Bruce Reinhart also sentenced Karyn Turk on Thursday to five months of house arrest when she gets out of prison and to perform 100 hours of community service in a nursing home, the Palm Beach Post reported.

...

Turk is a conservative media commentator and her attorney told the judge her career is dead without the ability to hob-nob in the community, travel to interview celebrities for YouTube broadcasts and to host fundraisers.

"Her livelihood is based on networking and being a social media commentator," Tarras said.

She brought a check for $46,000 to court to reimburse the government, the attorney told the judge, adding that should be enough.

But Reinhart disagreed. He said that even though Turk had apparently led an otherwise law-abiding life, her crime was a serious one, and she couldn't "buy her way out of jail" by writing a check.

"Choices in life have consequences, I'm sorry to tell you," the judge said. "If you steal from the government, you're not going to have a reputation as an honest person."

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Fisherman lands 350-pound grouper off Florida coast and scales in comparison

Image

A man who was fishing off the coast of southwest Florida reeled in a 350-pound Warsaw grouper that marine biologists from the Fish and Wildlife Research Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida, estimated was 50 years old.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission posted a photo on Instagram of the fisherman standing next to the oversized grouper for scale and wrote in the caption that it was caught with a hook-and-line in approximately 600-foot deep water on Dec. 29, 2019.

The whopping catch also made history for the FWC ageing program as the oldest sample ever collected.

The researchers harvested its otolith, also known as an "earstone," which is a hard, calcium structure behind the brain of the fish that they said was "extremely valuable" to help determine its age.

Disney security guard arrives naked to Florida prostitution sting
POLK COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Authorities have arrested more than 100 people in an undercover sting targeting prostitution, human trafficking and child predators in Polk County, including a pastor and two people who work at Orlando theme parks.

The six-day investigation, dubbed “Operation Santa’s Naughty List” aimed to identify and help victims of human trafficking who might have been forced into prostitution.

“I in my heart believe that every one of these prostitutes at some point in their time in their life were a victim of human trafficking, if in fact they’re not currently a victim of human trafficking,” said Sheriff Grady Judd.

Sheriff Judd said a number of people answered online ads and arranged to meet with undercover detectives at a location in Polk County.

Have you considered a gator? Probably easier than crawdads in the long run. Plus, you'll know they are there.

Plus they keep the annoying child population in check.

Did you know that gators are the natural predator for children?

True fact.
