Skip to comments.America's most miserable cities (Guess who is No. 1? Hint: It's Kwame's Town)

Imagine living in a city with the country's highest violent-crime rate and second-highest unemployment rate. As an added kicker, you need more Superfund dollars allocated to your city to clean up toxic-waste sites than just about any other metropolitan area.

“Besides all of the crap this poll cites, it appears we have a full blown Real Estate Depression here as well.”
You got that right. In my part of the liberal cespool called Michigan, homes selling for $30,000 or less and homes in the above $400,000 range are selling. The homes between are glutting the market and not selling.
That tells me one thing - the middle class jobs are dead in this socialist hellhole. The idiot liberals wanted a female communist in the governor’s chair and they got it.
No jobs, businesses leaving by truck loads and productive citizens fleeing by the hundreds of thousands.
This state will look like Haiti in a few more years. Meanwhile, the criminal politicians, crooked businesses and thieving bureaucrats will strip mine this state of all cash.
Not here in Bloomfield Hills. My neighbors home has been empty for over three years. It started on the market at $699,000 and has been recently listed for about $375,000 and still no takers. This is a 4200 Sq Ft., three bedroom, four and 1/2 bath, two car garage, decks, fireplaces, etc. home on the 18th fairway of a private Golf Course with fabulous views of the fairway and lake.
It is like you almost cannot give these things away!
The Court of Political Correctness is convening to 'TRY YOUR CASE!'LOL..
(Maybe Kwame will be my cell-mate. Oh wait, only non-PC types actually go to jail. Actual Felons like Kwame go to Disneyland!)
Actually, any of the Great Lake states might offer you the change you're looking for.
Although about now I am just about ready to pack up and move to a sunnier and warmer clime, (I live in the UP and it just DOES NOT want to warm up) I have lived other places, and (at least where I live, in MI) you pretty much can’t beat what we have here— our town is surrounded by lakes and forest w/in 5 mins., it’s a safe place, and when you need a hand, there is always someone there to step up.
Obviously sports were not factored in on this “miserable” list. Two of Detroit’s teams (Pistons and Red Wings) are in the final 4 teams left. I think that should account for something...at least it allows people to get away from the every day problems for a couple hours each day.
The Lansing Lugnuts are great fun to watch. We're lucky to have a minor league team here. The stadium is beautiful.
I'm kind of glad this spring has been cool. It seems like it has been a long time since we've had a real, extended spring, not the usual two weeks between blizzard and scorching.
I left DC/Philly for Seattle in 2001. I was amazed at how low key it was to live there. There isn’t much crime; I didn’t see graffiti all over like in Philly. At the end of my doctoral program my family wanted me to come back east. No.way.in.hell.
I landed in Iowa and have been living an American life with people who still have American values. It’s been wonderful - tho they are the folks who gave you Obama. Can’t win them all.
I’m looking for an abandoned missile silo to reside in.
“You got that right. In my part of the liberal cespool called Michigan, homes selling for $30,000 or less and homes in the above $400,000 range are selling. The homes between are glutting the market and not selling.”
4 years ago my house was appraised at $155K and right now, at this very moment, the house right next door to me is listed at $62.5K. My house is slightly bigger, but overall I am in a cookie cutter bungalow neighborhood. I’d panic, but I am working Dave’s FPU plan, so I’m not to frenzied. ;-)
“The idiot liberals wanted a female communist in the governors chair and they got it.”
Don’t worry, they are still blaming President Bush. The idiots blame him for everything and will never hold their local leadership accountable.
“Im suprised to see Charlotte come in ninth.”
Amazing considering the fact that some outfit called “Relocate America” or something similiar just picked Charlotte as the BEST city in the country to move to. I guess these ratings just don’t really mean a whole lot, do they?
