Santa Fe, NMCarnival of fools
The only 2 things about Santa Fe that are nice is the scenery and the weather. But, those two things cannot bring about the total comfort and homeyness that makes a city a great place to live. Firstly, Sperling shows a fatal flaw about Sante Fe. A 50K average income with a close to 400K avg housing price? Hmmm, Denver home prices with 35% less avg income. California rent prices in a little town with ZERO private sector industry (Tourism does not count because those jobs have menial wages) and state gov't jobs. Umm, No. The other fatal flaw is that Santa Fe is always rated as one of the top 5 rudest cities in America. They have deadly drivers, a huge illegal (Yes liberals, illegal means illegal) population, extremely HIGH income inequality (something liberals always yammer on about but never do anything about) and a shrinking population and tourism. Even though Santa Fe is a failed little town with a looming deficit, it doesn't stop their pretentious residents from making it as an expensive of a city as any big city in N.Y. or California. It's like a fairytale land for these transplants, but it drives out or burdens the local population which are mostly hispanic. Again, great weather and scenery are the ONLY pluses about Santa Fe and I give a star to each for a total of two.
Colorado Springs, COVery Disappointing
On the west side of this city it's very picturesque, quaint and majestic, but it's east side is just blah. Also, this place is maybe the worst singles scene in a city this nice. The women here are just unattractive as all get out. I don't know what it is but they can't hold a candle to women in Albuquerque where I came from. A poor, crime ridden and jobless wasteland that still has far more and better looking women. Something about military towns that are like this. Anyway, this city is too crowded, expensive and lame. Colorado in general is highly overrated and I'm going to be moving on when my lease is up. The mountains and climate are the only pluses. Too many cons and not enough pros for me to want to stay here.
Albuquerque, NMA lawless 3rd world wasteland
This has to be one of the worst cities in America, and it's 100% because of the reprehensible people (if you can call them that) that live here. There's not a single day that will pass without getting in some sort of conflict with people. half or more of the people are functionally illiterate (FACT) Half of the people here are in the penal system in some way (FACT), and 3/4 of the people here are 100% dependant on the Fed Gov't in some way shape or form (FACT). They are rude, ill-mannered, selfish,, mean and violent. There are less than 100 uniformed cops in this 550K population city (FACT). If you want to see Detroit in the desert come to Albuquerque. As for the climate, it's getting worse too. The Sandia wilderness here is almost completely dead. The desert is all the way up to 8,000ft now and more than half of the trees in the forests in the high elevations have died completely. Albuquerque is a place of death and i'm so fired up about getting out of this hole and up to paradise Colorado before the years up. Good riddance New Mexico, same as the old Mexico.
Lubbock, TXIf God was going to insert an enemma
This is where he would put it. I've traveled all about the US & have
spent extensive time in small towns to our biggest cities, and panhandle
west texas is amongst the worst places to even look at much less live in. Where to start. Trash in this city is as grass is to a golf course
(except for here). 30-60 mile an hour winds daily. Landscape reminescent
of damnation alley, and a stench that makes raw sewage smell good. As for the people. Ummm........Well. they have to live here, so I guess I
can understand. Also, for a city of about 1/4 million people, there is
absolutely NOTHING to do here, and everything is of the lowest possible
quality with the exception of 2 grocery stores. I've been here for only 3 months and i'm leaving in 2 days for my job, and i actually feel like
i'm being released from prison or something after 20 years. Like my boss said, who had to endure west tx, "the best view of west, tx is in
your rear view mirror"
Onalaska, WIBest fishing I ever did
I was in nearby lacrosse working for a couple months, and there was nothing to do but drink and fish. And cold you fish. There was this small family owned boat rental and tack shop that would rent you a boat with an outboard
for $60 the whole day. I got tired i caught so many fish. The people were great up in wisconsin. Much friendlier than texans, and smarter too.
Texas, TXstay way from texas
Too many immigrants and overly proud texans. It's a crowded, hot, and boring
