    Default America's most miserable cities

    according to Forbes magazine. I post this in fun but I will say I'm shocked that 3 of the top 7 most miserable are in Michigan. I would have guessed at least 6 if not 7 of the top 7 would be there.

    To add a partisan political flavor 18 of the 20 most miserable cities are in blue states.

    Not one Florida city in the bunch. But remember it sucks here. Miserable sunshine and beaches. They won't even let you ride the manatees anymore. If you are one of the miserable people leaving Michigan, NY, NJ, Ohio, Illinois or even California, I hear Arizona is really nice.

    Cali also has 3/10 and Illinois has 3/10 as well.

    And stringy, I'd rather have AIDS than live in Florida. You keep your old people and shitty driver and hurricanes. Sterling heights is amazing.

    If you feel so inclined a comment would be appreciated.

    Respect a believers right to believe, but they should damn well repect our right to challenge such utterly illogical notions.

    That's the thing, they are your shitty old people. If you'd keep them this would be an absolute paradise. Hurricanes are no real worry.

    Even though Michigan is such a hellhole at least there are no massholes there.

    No surprise to see Detroit at the top of the list; it's America's Iraq.
    Free speech is cool as long as it jibes with our program.

    violent crime in Detroit is down 5%......normally that would be good news.....however, since the population is down 50% that's actually about ten times higher......

    I'm sure that Detroit has more going for it than whatever trailerpark you crawled out of. In fact Iraq probably does too.
