    Surely there's an appropriate P.T. Barnum quote...

    Hi, my name is Mouse, and I'm now every Florida municipality's worst nightmare. I live in one of the lowest tax rate counties in the state right now, and I'm taking my low, low property taxes with me wherever I move in the state for hopefully the next 50 years.

    So Brevard County, Palm Beach County , or Hillsborough County, if I move there in the next couple of years, you're not going to get $6K a year from me in taxes like you would from someone who moved here from New York, but instead you get my annual contribution of $29.95 for fire protection. Maybe if I'm feeling generous, I'll kick in an extra $5 for the road department to fix the pothole down the road.

    My Brother: So, how should I vote on that Amendment?

    Me: I'm voting no.

    My Brother: I can't even understand it. What will it do?

    Me: I don't know, I can't understand it either. It seems like a crappy piece of legislation they slopped together.

    My Brother: How'd you decide to vote no?

    Me: Shelly said to.

    My Brother: Who's Shelly?

    Me: I don't know, just do what he says.

    And it appears that you have absolutely no idea how portability works in this case.
