It was a joke, but in your posts we can see your hate for: "Anything that embellishes Chicago."

Chicago schools shining bright!

j/k
LMAO! I hope he uses spell-check and rechecks his punctuation next time he decides to "educate" others.

lol, ok.

I have no beef against Chicago except for the winter weather and some of the residents who feel the need to constantly bash the Sunbelt...oh, and those who feel they know me better than I do, thank you. Apparently you speak for Steve-O too.

Sure thing, and your intention wasn't to come across as saying that people (some) are tiring of the Sunbelt because it's so much better back at home.

LOL.

What most people dont know is that people who moved into formerly fast-growing areas of the Sunbelt--Phoenix and Vegas--during the boom years are now beginning to move out during the bust years. Phoenix has become nothing more than an overpopulated, overbuilt, congested, concrete mess. The area grew much too fast to keep up with its basic needs. What attracted people to the area is now pushing them out. Arizona's economy is now much too small to support its 6.4 million population. Not too mention the over-inflated cost of living, no jobs, being foreclosure central and abysmal schools. I'm just glad many many people are beginning to see that. As for me, I will soon be moving from Arizona to greener pastures (literally and metaphorically) in Wisconsin. ARIZONA IS NOT WHAT IT IS CRACKED UP TO BE BY MIDWESTERNERS WHO THINK IT IS SOME SORT OF EDEN OR SOMETHING. I've lived here for four years and cant stand it. Arizona has become highly over-rated!

Please take it somewhere else PLEASE. Do you constantly need to spam the same message with your overgeneralizations day-in day-out in different threads? We know how much you hate Phoenix. Honestly.

You're choosing a good state to move to, though. Madison, I presume..

Actually, the larger Texas gets, the more purple it seems to get. It's only a matter of time before Texas becomes a blue state.

You are exactly right. Because who are the people moving to Texas? - mostly Californians & people from the Great Lakes\ Northeast. I've heard that all the large Texas cities vote strongly Democratic.
