    This country is built on the foundations of slavery and  the genocide of the real  American people (native Indian tribes) why would anyone feel any sympathy for this situation? Still, you must be safe in the knowledge that you have the biggest arsenal of nukes in the whole world, and the man with the little hands in full control of the big button

    I graduated from Grace M. Davis HS in 1971 and left Modesto in 1973 and never looked back. Loved the weather, and the location, but hated the crime and so many idiotic people. I moved to a state with cold weather, but the people are nice overall, much better behaved, the town is quiet, peaceful, and has great tasting water, great fishing, and terrific cooks… lol. Peace.

    Salt Lake City was by far the worst place I had ever lived. The Mormon church own the state like a mafia (and runs it), and the streets are full of dirty heroin users. I remember walking home from college and seeing needles everywhere on the sidewalks.

    The WORST place to live in the USA is the *entire country*! Our government has been totally taken over by the Corporate Right. We don't have a democracy any more. All of the wealth in concentrated in the hands of America's greediest psychopaths, who rule over us with the iron fist of corporate greed. The rest of the country is becoming a 3rd world hell hole. I don't even think of America as being my country any more.
