Forbes Lists America's 20 'Most Miserable Cities'; Guess What The Vast Majority Have in Common?

By Tom Blumer | February 23, 2013 | 08:58

Forbes just published its 20 Most Miserable Cities List for 2013. The magazine left off several obviously more "worthy" contenders, perhaps because its decisions to include and exclude certain criteria were, to say the least, more than a little odd.

I have listed the magazine's top twenty following the jump, along with each city's mayor and that person's political leanings, showing a commonality the magazine's Kurt Badenhausen failed to observe:

20. Youngstown, Ohio -- Charles P. Sammarone, Democrat
19. Gary, Indiana -- Karen Freeman-Wilson, Democrat
18. Poughkeepsie, New York -- John C. Tkazyik, Republican
17. Cleveland, Ohio -- Frank Jackson, Democrat
16. Atlanta, Georgia -- Kasim Reed, Democrat
15. Atlantic City, New Jersey -- Lorenzo Langford, Democrat
14. Milwaukee, Wisconsin -- Tom Barrett, Democrat
13. Camden, New Jersey -- Dana Redd, Democrat
12. St. Louis, Missouri -- Francis Slay, Democrat
11. Toledo, Ohio -- Michael Bell, ran as an independent but is a lifelong Democrat
10. New York, New York -- Michael Bloomberg, Nanny State "Independent" since 2007; Democrat before 2001; ran as a Republican in 2001 just to get a spot on the ballot.
9. Waukegan, Illinois -- Robert G. Sabonjian, Democrat (see first paragraph following this list)
8. Stockton, California -- Anthony Silva, a Republican sworn into office by Democrat and former California Assembly Speaker Willie Brown.
7. Warren, Michigan -- James Fouts, Republican
6. Vallejo, California -- Osby Davis, Not determinable
5. Modesto, California -- Garrad Marsh, "non-partisan," clear Democrat sympathies
4. Chicago, Illinois -- Rahm Emanuel, Democrat
3. Rockford, Illinois -- Larry Morrissey, Independent
2. Flint, Michigan -- Dayne Walling, "nonpartisan," formerly worked for U.S. Rep. Dale Kildee, a Democrat
1. Detroit, Michigan -- Dave Bing, Democrat

On a internet thread you have shown me and proven so by your actions that lying is your only successful strategy that you seem to be demonstrating at this point in time and it doesn't negate the fact that our president is failing us.
He fears profiling.

<quoted text>I don't accept tax inequality. Apparently you do. The working class get the shaft. I'm on their side. You kiss azz for the wealthy. I'm not too worried about them.
I paid my dues and earned my retirement. I worked damned hard for many years and raised a family - provided for them. I earned my free time to do as I please these days. I still have a lot of work to do - lots coming right up soon.
I never suggested we should be equal financially. What I do suggest is that the wealthy are not more special than those who work for a salary or a wage, and I resent special tax code that advantages them to the tune of the greatest income inequality and wealth disparity in America since the Great Depression and still growing daily. You're an idiot. Enjoy it. Serve the kings and queens. I'll go my own way. I'm neither ignorant, indolent, lazy or a slacker. I STILL don't like the way it's going in America. I'm a lucky woman who appreciates the opportunities she has had and wants them around for my grandchildren. From what I see, it's getting tougher all the time.
I'm curious (really). Obama opted to pursue HC 'reform' over 'tax inequality' during his first 1/2 years... when he COULD get ANY program done (or, pert near).

in your opinion, WHY did he do that?

think about it... if he would have re-wrote the FIT codes to, say, a flat standard deduction ($40, 50, 60k) and a FLAT tax on ALL income over that deduction, what would that have done to 'revenues'? and FOR the economy?

let's say it would have really jump-started a REAL recovery... HC reforms would have been easy-squeasy. even true single-payer (read that National HC a la Europe). Immigration 'reform', too.

WHY didn't he DO IT? remember, the Party of Tax Breaks For the Wealthy was NOT able to stop HC. I cannot believe that those members of that Party that support either Tax Reform or a Flat Tax would have balked like they did about HC. such a movement would have had REAL BI-partisan support... at least waaaay more than HC.

WHY?

The White House suggested the sequester — a package of automatic spending cuts that were so horrible they would inspire a bipartisan supercommittee to cut a better deal.

Unlike Conservative Media, We Don't 'Make Stuff Up' at MSNBC, Proclaims Ed Schultz

By Jack Coleman | February 23, 2013 | 13:20

Does Ed Schultz ever actually watch the cable network that employs him?

While complaining about crimes against humanity by conservatives in media, Schultz on his radio show this week depicted MSNBC as the principled epitome of accuracy and balance.(audio clip after page break)



Here's Schultz doing this while describing a recent conversation with Peter Boyles, a conservative talker who broadcasts out of Denver.(h/t for audio, Brian Maloney at mrctv.org )--

All Liberals want them to stay, get FREE driver licenses without any driving tests.

Get free college tuition.

Get free welfare, Social Security, Medicaid, Food Stamps, Medicare, etc.

All Liberals also want them to have priority for Federal job applications, even over military people.

All Liberals want them to get free and priority housing.

Also ALL Liberals want them to have free healthcare, that is one of the reasons for Obamacare. For tax payers to fund illegal's health care expenses.

Do any Republicans live in those cities? I think they're all in the burbs somewhere living in gated communities, or else they're in the rural rural (yeah - twice) areas cooking up meth. Did you somehow think that with there being no Republicans in town, one could get elected? These folks have already been there, done that, and it turned them all into Democrats after they drove the d*mned Republicans out of town for ripping them off repeatedly! Why do you think they're poor and miserable in the first place?

Come to think of it, I think that's now happening on a national scale. That's why the Republican party is hellbent on redistricting:

Texas Redistricting: Federal Court Blocks Legislature-Drawn Maps

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/28/texa...

SAN ANTONIO — Texas Republican lawmakers discriminated against minority voters while drawing new political boundaries, a federal court ruled Tuesday, rejecting a plan pushed by the state's GOP leaders in a decision that likely comes too late to affect the November elections but is set to reverberate to 2014.

In some cases, black congressional members in Texas had economic drivers such as sporting arenas freshly carved out of their districts, though "no such surgery" was performed on any belonging to white incumbents, according to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.(cont.)

I don't know. In fact, my initial complaint about the President is that I thought he got his priorities wrong. I think he should have stayed on the economy longer. JMO
