Chicago makes list of Forbes’ most-miserable cities
According to Forbes.com, Chicagoans live in the fourth-most godforsaken city in America. Detroit topped the 2013 list of America’s Most Miserable Cities.
“Chicago residents must endure long commutes [31 minutes on average], plummeting home prices [37% in the past five years], brutal winters and high foreclosure rates [3.3% of homes in 2012 says RealtyTrac]. Many residents are giving up on the Windy City with a net migration out of the city of 107,000 people the past five years, according to Moody’s Analytics.”

Damn. I've got some good rants too. There was a pretty good article in the Chicago Tribune today too about taxes as well as the Forbes' list thing.

Working, there was a big lay-off this week, 40 peeps escorted off Westinghouse property by armed guard services, 5% reduction in the work force, since the japan sunami, we've lost 20 contracs to build new nuke plants, the libs have destroyed the power industry, fucking lucky I dodged the axe.

IL. is were I've lived since 1979, do I like it?

No, but there has always been work, growing up in Michigan, I can tell you first hand what it's like to be poor and hungry, not have a roof over your head and no hope.

With that said, I'll put up with alot of shit to live the life style that I have today, I'll stay here till I get a job transfer or retire.

I posted this in the IA forum, but I'll let you Chicago guys see it too.

I got some video of the albino doe that has been roaming our property. Plus I have plenty of riding fail too...
