I donít know anyone from here thatís happy, there is a type of blind pride in the state; crabs and sports, but it really is blind.

Itís a place where no one has any sort of connection with each other unless youíre part of a hive mind, operating like a gang rather than an individual, the place is unhealthy and toxic.

Worst state in the us is maryland to me; lived here for 30 years, next month Iím selling my house and leaving this hellhole to move out of state forever.


You sound like you fit right in.

Big changes in the federal government, the proximity of which drives a lot of Maryland economically, causes major changes in personnel every 4-8 years. Lot of contracting, consulting jobs which turn over a lot too.

We live in a very nice area actually but like you, I would love to be out of this state. My wifeís connection to the medical community and the fact she has friends and family here has prevented that so far. First chance though, weíre gone. ďFree StateĒ my ass.

The broad sweeping generalizations people make are amusing.

That being said Maryland is an expensive place, but like I said earlier in the thread the desirable places to live in other states are even more expensive.

You could always move to Youngstown Ohio. A poster a while back that it was great......

I would say the areas of Severna Park/Crownsville/Annapolis/Davidsonville for starters , and lets not forget Gibson Island in Pasadena and South Anne Arundel County. On average, some of most expensive zip codes in the USA. I know the owner of the Ravens has a place in or very near to Severna Park.

No, it may not have half of the problems he mentioned, but they do exist in the other half. I know what he's talking about. But it's a matter of degrees and he's exaggerating because he's frustrated. I know that feeling too.
