You people are a riot.. I live in California I know we make bad decisions.
We have the most people so we are going to have the most problems.
Stockton has always been borderline bad and got worse with the housing crash.
San Bernadino got bad after the housing Market Collapsed. I would be willing to bet many
people that bought houses they couldn't afford were from both parties. I am reasonably sure
the crooks that gave everyone with a pulse a loan for pure profit were mostly Republican.
I think both parties are corrupt .
I was amazed to see that great Republican state of Arizona. In a town full of Republican Mormons
still practices forced Polygomomy in the 21st century.
How many years has that been allowed to happen ?
When you start shooting bullets of blame you better take a good look in the mirror.
Hmmmm.....The 5 best run cities all have what two things in common? Either strong local private companies or they have taken a stand to cut government spending/waste. When are Americans going to wake up and realize the government only has what we give it. Nothing chaps my **** more than seeing politicians (on both sides of the aisle) treated like movie stars by the media when they are actually running this country into the ground.
Yay, Plano is no.1. I live in this city for the past 8 years and love it. Best city I have ever lived in.
Didn't think we were rated no.1, but not surprised at all. All the decisions the city make I always agree with. It is very clean and enforce laws for people who don't keep it that way.
Oh and yes it is primarily run by republicans who are pro business. Way to go PLANO!!!
The really big cities finally got what they wanted. A 3rd world population and control over the government. The Whites left just like they wanted.
And most of these big cities are a 3rd world, incompetent, corrupt cesspool.
But it is not PC to tell the truth.
Hey; 2 in the plus side, 2 in the minus for Cali!
That's the way it is out here; no sense thinkin' about movin' in, folks.

[BRIEFING.COM] The Russell 2000 crosssed the 1,000 level for the first time ever today and the S&P 500 established a new all-time, intraday high. Those were some of the more memorable highlights of what was an otherwise nondescript day of trading.
By and large, there just wasn't a lot of conviction on the part of either buyers or sellers. The major indices spent time on either side of the unchanged line, but never put a whole lot of distance between themselves and ... More
