Do you think the crime rate, with attacks on tourits may have something to do with it?

The tourists must be waiting for the VENUES to be completed before traveling to the CITY BEAUTIFUL.

It's the economy - tanking because of crooked realtors and mortgage brokers, and also high taxes brought on by corrupt city and town spending.

But we are going to be saved, by federal government spending to bail out corrupt businesses and pennilesss homeowners.

Good thing we've leveraged every penny of a tourist tax that will decline rapidly as we head into a recession. On the bright side, at least we'll have a renovated Citrus Bowl with no team to play in it.

Hotel Occupancy is down because it is cheaper to rent a house then a room.

Unfortunately, our Federal government will borrow whatever it can to keep things going (read that as "charge it all to future generations to pay").

Somebody has to stop them! If some stupid fatcat can't afford their house or can't afford to keep his business running, I don't think it's fair to get the government to issue billions of dollars in bonds (debt for future generations) to bail them out!!!

They're bankrupting the country to save themselves from bankruptcy.

If we have a bad tourist year, then we get reduced tax revenues. Reduces tax revenues, homeowners have to pay for the gap if Orange County flas short. This all equals, no matter what, homeowners will end up paying for the venues, and whatever else is voted for by our local government.
