If things aren't bad enough in the economy these days, the mail is bringing my bills of extortion. I already received the estimated property tax report, now I have sitting on my desk my homeowner/hurricane insurance policy. Here in Florida where extortion of its private citizens is common practice, the task begins.
The task of how I am going to pay the extortionist become a reality. Granted its not due until November, but they mail it early so that you can stress for months. I imagine the already high forecloses rate in Florida is getting ready to take another dip. What I want to know is where all these displaced people going? The funny part of this whole scenario is that my extortion amounts exceed what I pay for my mortgage. Well, that's not really funny, but that is why I call it extortion.
The name of the company that insures me, or should I say charges me is called Citizens, is that for us or against us. I have never filed a claim yet I am not even given an option to use another company, so I can't even shop around for better prices. Can you call that a monopoly? With home value crashing, do I get a better rate, do I have my home devalued? What do I do? According to the statistics our fair state is considered to be the most corrupt, if your going to be on top I guess you have to pick something. When you hear the phrase "Paradise isn't cheap, well this is why!

    My father lives in west central FL and he's telling me that his taxes and insurance are going through the roof.

    It's why he wants to move back to RI which is saying something.

    If you figure it out, all the insurances you pay over the life of your mortgage will amount to more than you paid for the house in the first place. More folks are becoming homeless, and don't come to the Keys, the homeless folks here are getting arrested daily, just look at the websites in the Keys. Who said there isn't a recession??? Yet, you have to find something to smile about daily. A grandchild's smile or hug will do it.
