GO, STOCKTON!! YOU"RE #1!!!!!



Beverly from Phoenix sent me an article about America's 10 most miserable cities and guess who was #1????
STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA - Ghetto Capitol of the world!!!!
Below is an excerpt from the article:

The most miserable city
Stockton ranks in the bottom seven in four of the nine categories we looked at: commute times, income tax rates, unemployment and violent crime. Only New York City has a higher income tax rate than what Stockton, and all California residents, are forced to pay.
Stockton was ground zero for the housing boom and now the subsequent bust. Home prices more than tripled between 1998 and 2005, and then came crashing down last year. Stockton had the country's highest foreclosure rate last year at 9.5 percent, according to RealtyTrac, an online marketer of foreclosed property. Things are not looking much brighter in 2009 as housing prices are expected to fall another 36 percent on the heels of a 39 percent drop in 2008. Also, unemployment is expected to jump to 13.3 percent from 10.4 percent, according to economic research firm Moody's Economy.com.
So, according to this article, things are only gonna get worse there. WOO-HOO!!!!

Ah, the Outer Banks of N.C.... such a beautiful place with such nice people. They wave to you (with their whole hand and not just the middle finger) when they drive by but they mind their own business, too.

Stockton? No.

San Bernardino should hold that dubious honor. If Hades had a commode, Berdoo would be its perpetually clogged drain.

Yo, Bob... that was funny as shit!!!! Having lived in Northern Virginia for many years, right outside D.C., I always thought that place was the asshole of the universe but "Berdoo would be its perpetually clogged drain"... fucking cracked me up!!!

Look at the first picture, passed out drunk, empty chicken bucket and watermelon rinds. Ever wonder where "sterotypes" come from?
