You don't need the U.S. Misery Index to tell you that things are bad in the U.S. Unemployment is near or at all-time highs in many parts of the country, foreclosures continue to happen at unprecedented rates and there are some very real indicators that we are heading toward a double-dip recession.
Some of us should count our lucky stars, however. In certain U.S. cities, life is much worse for residents than in other areas of the country. Using a variety of criteria, including unemployment rates, health data, the number of foreclosures, crime statistics, climate and other measures of misery, WalletPop came up with its unofficial list of the 10 worst cities to live in. This list is far from comprehensive, but there are some significant reasons why these cities made the cut. Read on.

What about Frostbite Falls, MN?
We’re number 10! We’re number 10!
I have been to those ten places, this is fairly accurate. You could also throw-in any city in Upstate New York.
Moose and squirrel make it most hospitable place to live, comrade.
Frostbite Falls, MN....Home of Wossamotta U.!
Rah, Rah, Ree!
Kick 'em in the knee!
Rah, Rah, Rass!
Kick 'em in the other knee.
El Centro has at least one important redeeming quality. It is home to my favorite food on the planet: Quesadilla Especial at La Hacienda (formerly in Imperial, CA.)
0. The other side of Michelle Obama’s bed.
I heard all the gulf states are just terrible. The RSPCA is having a pet auction here in California due to so many families having to turn pets in at a shelter in the gulf area because of no money to take care of them.
Ten best small cities to live:
No. 1: Eden Prairie, Minn.
No. 2: Columbia / Ellicott City, Md.
No. 3: Newton, Mass.
No. 4: Bellevue, Wash.
No. 5: McKinney, Texas
No. 6: Fort Collins, Colo.
No. 7: Overland Park, Kansas
No. 8: Fishers, Ind.
No. 9: Ames, Iowa
No. 10: Rogers, Ark.
This smells like more Lib agiprop to me... WHERE IS BALTIMORE, PHILLY, GARY IN and EAST ST. LOUIS??? all these armpits are far worse than Phoenix or Miami
Oklahoma City made the list because of our obesity index. Granted, we have more fat people than we should. But I have yet to hear that it is contagious or that people are forced into obesity because of organized crime. So, give me a break, other people’s being fat is no reason to black ball a city.
We have low unemployment, low cost of living, low foreclosure rate, housing prices have not declined to much extent. People are friendly and our crime rate is low. But too many fat people is worse than Chicago’s double digit weekly murder rate.
Big FReepin' deal ... like I care if the neighbors work out. I'd rather they cooked great Mexican food ... with lard. And get those bicycles out of the way of my van already.
“Well I met her in El Centro
In the men’s room of a bar
We consummated our relationship
In the front seat of our car”

Y’know, the fact that Cleveland came out worse than Detroit is going to really annoy the Clevelanders. Being better than Detroit is their big hope after Lebron left.
I drive into number 10 each day from Desoto county to work. Could you imagine this place without FEDEX?
I’ve never been to Oklahoma City, but to place them on this list over ‘fitness’ issues is a complete and utter joke...
So Phoenix Arizona makes it because of the new law that makes it too hard for Latinos to live here??
There is quite a slant in some of these listings.
I’d sure pick OKC over most of the others on that list to live in. (No offense, I’d rather not live there, I like the Southeast, but OKC seems like a good town from everything I’ve read elsewhere.)
I wonder why it supposedly has such a problem with obesity. Lots of good food? Too hot/cold to exercise?
No Compton, CA or East St. Louis?
. . . . you nailed it ,,,, B/S !!!
