College Review - 1/17/2013
It is nearly impossible to continue or finish a college degree in South Carolina" It is made very clear that education is not important, and the show it by hiring truly uneducated poeple to fun the state college. It is filled with apathetic teachers, and I use the word teacher here loosely.

If you can educate yourself then you might stand a chance, but it won't be from the staff or by educated teachers. Everyone down here in the south is too busy playing "confederate war" games. Let me help everyone out.....run out to your yard and bonk yourself on the head and play dead. See if you had learned history then you would know that the South lost, and move onto more current subjects and learn!!!!

Best of everything - 11/28/2012
I moved to RI about 5 years ago from Colorado and I have to say, I don't think I ever want to move. Unless you are from the midwest, there are rude people everywhere, you have to overlook that and move on, you can't control how everyone will react to you.
Personally, I think that you get what you give; if you are rude, they will be rude back. I can honestly say that I have not had anyone be rude to me here when I just start small talk with them. When I ask for directions or a general question, people are more than happy to help out.
I love the fact that normally there is not a lot of snow here (winter of 2009/2010 was a different story). They still talk about the blizzard of '78 (in Colorado, there is a blizzard almost every year, so we don't keep track). The beach and ocean is fantastic and so close no matter where you live, there are a ton of classic, quaint New England towns that have great local stores and food. Also, you are so close to everything. In Read More

Rude People - 10/2/2011
Though I have met some very nice people in Rhode Island, I'm amazed at the number of rude individuals I've encountered. Every morning, I hope to survive the day without being ridiculed by a total stranger. Rhode Island is full of angry, mean spirited, people who need to drag others down to feel better about themselves. There's an enormous amount of ignorance in this state.  Read More

Unfunded Liabilities - 7/5/2011
According to a recent news story, each household in the state of RI would need to pay about $35+K to bring unfunded liabilities. Given the severity of this situation, be prepared to spend more money on taxes. RI will never be tax friendly to retirees who are not from the government sector or a school Read More

"Rude Island" Worst Place I Have EVER Lived - 6/21/2010
I moved here with my husband and two children a few years ago because my extended family resides here. Since I cant get them to see what life is like in the rest of the world I will probably live here for quite some time, reluctantly. The people are extremely rude. Inhabited by rich snobs and the bitter "lower-class" that are under their feet.

There is beauty in some of the nature when it comes to this state and unfortunatly, if it werent for these aweful people you come in contact with this could be a serene place to live.

Everything is OVER PRICED. The theme is, pay through the nose for mediocrity or worse, because everyone is either struggling or greedy. This applies to all goods. Things have not changed since the days of the rich vs the poor here. Yes here in RI you are not inbetween, you are either rich or poor because every chance the state gets, and each town within, they it drains your earnings to stuff their pockets. This is also the reason why you Read More

Winter weather and taxes population - 12/24/2009
We just got 22" of snow before the season had officially started. Taxes would be a burden for a retired couple as well as the winters......one winter we got over 110" inches. We are a state with an area 65 X 35 miles and over a million people. Very Read More
