    Americans feel an 'entitlement' that the rest of the world does not have. It's time to get your head out of your ass and survive. The GOM is done. There is no "coming back". There is also another side to this story. Some of these business/home owners are very wealthy.

They called the police on Mexican cleaning crews saying they were illegal workers. And how many people of color do you see in ads for Florida panhandle beaches? or Gulf Shores, Al? The mighty whites run everything here and got exactly what they deserve.
