Forbes recently published its top 10 most “MISERABLE” cities in the U. S. - Their operational definition of “miserable” is heavily weighted to economic factors - unemployment, housing, along with certain quality of life factors.
What is both interesting and instructive about this list is the fact that heading the list is Detroit, in the 10th spot is New York - with the entire top 10 most miserable cities in America being made up of 3 cities in Michigan, 3 in California, 3 in Illinois and, of course, 1 in New York state.
Michigan, California, Illinois and New York - all four states under the thumb of Democrats - With 3 of the four, Michigan, Illinois and California experiencing generational/long term control of Democrats.
Gee, could their be a pattern here?? Of course. Yet, we elect and then reelect a Democrat to lead the country - with his reelection coming in the face of a very weak economy, high unemployment, skyrocketing energy prices, colassal spending and debt, a burgeoning government in both size and control and tax increases.
Anyone having confidence in our electorate going forward should seek clinical intervention.
