    Are you in, or near, one? I thought I might be as unemployment here on the coast of Oregon is almost 11%. But, so far, so good??? :doubt:

    Snip:

    "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."

    Number 7 is horse hockey.

    Living in Prince William county, VA (which has a very similar law to AZ's), I can tell you the change has been great. Many of the illegals deported themselves, those that stayed, we helped deport over the last 3 years. I'm not saying that there are no illegals in the county, but there are a lot fewer. The net effect, less overcrowding in the schools, DMV, and emergency room and slightly lower home values in some places because of decreased demand that began before the crash. But, other areas values have gone up because people didn't want to live in an all Hispanic neighborhood. Those are much fewer now.

    So, Phoenix at number 7 is BS. Just sour grapes by the writer.

    Damn, Oklahoma can't win.... Where are all these fatties they're talking about!?! Out of all the places I have ever lived, this has to be the greatest(which is the reason I always end up back here)! Crime rate isn't bad, Recession hasn't hit us as hard as most of the country, and the people are the friendliest I have ever met.
    AMAZED Abq., NM didn't make it. That place was a hell hole!

    Cleveland is miseravle cold, Phoenix is horribly hot. There is no place from Astoria to Brookings that is not nice. You can't get a job there, but while you are not working, it is a nice place to enjoy yourself.

    Sadly, Cleveland likely deserves its dishonor...but Miami? Good grief. Even if you are miserable, you're still in Miami. I agree; a biased list.

    East central KY is the absolute worst place to live. No one move here.

    Our area is actually pretty good. Lots of mom and pop operations still. A lot of self sufficiency.

    I live here in arizona and say what you are saying about this state is horse hockey. This city lost a lot...a lot of money with this crap and brewer telling the world we have higher crime rate than we actually have...acutally crime has gone down...is killing this state.

    Arizona......its hate, but its a dry hate. By the way, why would the writer have sour grapes towards arizona?
