They could only list ten. I'm sure the rest of the red states were next.

This would be fine but all the so-called Best Places to Live lists are just PR for shiatty red state cities

Texas number 2?  Why not number one, apparently this list eschews left.

I've only been to Arizona once just to hike around the national parks which was cool and then stay out of the cities. But like a malevolent magnet Phoenix drew me in. The most depressingly unholy place on the planet and I thought Kinshasa was bad.

Arizona's the home of Joe Arpaio.  That tells me everything I need to know about that state.

According to a black co-worker who's wife was doing government training there, Huntsville was still segregated in 2010.  Maybe not full "two water fountains next to each other", but pretty much all retail was separate and unequal, and you better not go to the wrong one.

Sarasota wasn't that bad in 1995, but I've never wanted to go back.  Pretty good restaurants, but that's about all I remember about the place.

Well you know, all the blue state cities are being systematically destroyed by BLM Antifa hippies.  San Francisco's streets are now a river of homeless feces, Chicago is a permanent war zone, and nothing remains of Portland but a gigantic smoldering crater.  Fox News says it's so, therefore it's so.

My parents live in Texas and I would totally send this to them if I didn't live In Arizona.

I came really close to ending up in Chandler the last time I was in the job market, and the way things are going I might have to reconsider spending part of my time down there in the not too distant future.

Wife and I moved to AZ next week. Hope to be a part of making it a better place.

What a huge surprise that Trump-orientated voting states have the worst and most malignant governments that are completely unfocused on their constituencies.

"But Amazon pointed CNBC to two subsections of Apple's App Store guidelines that Fakespot may have violated. One guideline states that apps must make sure they're permitted to use, access, monetize access to or display content from a third-party service. Another guideline states that apps should not include false information and features."

So when is amazon's app getting the boot?

If it was strictly based on health access, New Mexico would rank pretty poorly.  But we try with inclusiveness and electoral access for all.

Dammit, Nevada.
 
2021-07-17 10:45:15 PM  
I guess I could have read their methodology, but I'm  too lazy. I'm  sure it's a lot of "do we think this place is a shiathole?" Confirmational bias.

No way.

You're probably right, but I can confirm just from experience that their criticisms of Nevada are spot-on.

Hey this list hasn't been verified by a Cyber Ninjas recount. We'll get back to you ... probably never with the REAL results.

In all honesty, Portland's fall from grace over the last 7-8 years is a damn Greek tragedy.  It was a great place to burn my 20's but I wouldn't move back for anything now.

There is a homeless person who gets naked and poops off the curb in my neighborhood right now. Nobody seems to know what to do. Some guy was actual freaking out on Nextdoor this morning.  I guess he had to stop for the light and his kid on the passenger side saw the evacuation. I have seen it. Just butt ass naked with white ass dropped slightly back and into the gutter.  I mean. At least it's in the gutter? But. Yeah. Damndest thing.

Those metrics they chose are odd. Is there a browser plugin that blocks articles solely based on crap statistics? I'm extremely tired of the media drawing unsupportable conclusions from cherry-picked statistics and polls.

I don't think missing four mail-in elections in a row means you might have to go vote in person next time around if you're still in the state is really all that big a deal
