It seems to me that people who live in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC have a generally more positive view about Maryland and what it has to offer than those living elsewhere in the state.

Why anyone in their right minds would live in Alaska is behind me. I know they pay their residents to live there in drilling rebates-lol-enough said.

I hate the cold.

This is so true. It has to suck for everyone else. DC is booming.

It just is where I live and work. It's nice enough and has some GREAT things about it. It's sure as he11 where I'd choose to live over some other places.

To be honest I don't see what all the complaints are about MD. This isn't directed at anyone specific at all. But people who don't want to live here, should move. I AM NOT saying that in the tone of 'well if you don't like it here, LEAVE.'

What I mean is people should do what makes them happy. And if there's somewhere else you'd rather live, then start making plans to do that. It may take a year or to to get it set up -- like getting out of debt, selling a few (or a lot) of things to bank roll the change, researching the place you're moving to, scouting out the move, etc.

But you only live once (in this life anyway) -- and if you think your quality of life would be better -- make the change. It's not going to happen by being complacent.

People complain that MD is expensive -- it ain't NYC or Honolulu people! Geez. You want expensive live in Hawaii for a while.

People complain about taxes -- well, on that front, MD isn't NY, CT, or California. You want high taxes try there.

People complain about the state leadership -- NO state has perfect leaders, and besides YOU/WE/SOMEONE just voted O'Malley back in. (The man wasn't in office two weeks the first time before he raised our taxes, and people voted him in -- AGAIN..but I digress...)

If the schools aren't what you want, work to make them better -- or put your kids in private school AND MAKE THE SACRIFICES NECESSARY TO DO THAT.

But please stop whining about MD isn't this or that. (Again, some complaints are on target and valid, but some are just a whiny refrain)
