VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
Speaking as someone who was born and raised in Kentucky, I can say that for the most part it is a miserable state full of miserable people. Lexington is nice but that's really the only area worth living in. The same goes for West Virginia. I got my diploma in 92 and got out quick as I could!
This propoganda is entirely designed to get people to start moving to 'future" boom towns. People read this crap and think someplace may be interesting so they do a little research,maybe even take a trip to see what it is like. Money changes hands and the economy gets a cash infusion. Sure there will be real boom towns because of energy (fracking) and other industries, but for the most part they will taper off in the coming years.
Our country "overall" is in bad shape no matter what the corporate(government) controlled media tells us.
You know the status of your state/city/community better than anyone feeding us this line of bull.
The reason the housing market is stable is Nebraska is an agricutural state the houses for the most part are farmhouses tied to the land by as many as 4 generations of family My wifes family lives on and farms 1800 acres of farmland just outside of Grand Island that's been paid for since before the great depression. The reason unemploymeny is low because the majority of the people are 2nd and 3rd generation farmers who only hire labor at planting and at harvest time, the rest of the year they have very few employees if any.. As usual MSN you're full of beans Nebraska is without a doubt a great place to live. But if you've gotta have a job ya betta keep moving because the reason the jobless rate is 3.8 is there are very few jobs and they're filled with long term employees, There are few major cities in Nebraska Omaha, Lincoln & Grand Island is the 2nd largest city in the state and by most standards Grand Island is a one horse small town with far more tractor dealers than car dealers or movies or even grocery stores Of Course they have a WalMart Super Center and you might get a job there.. I suspect that MSN is as misguided about every state as they are Nebraska mebbe mebb not I can't say,, I don't know about any of the rest of the states listed or MSNs opinions., but I'm well aware of the situation in Nebraska. You might want to keep in mind that Kool-Aid was invented in Nebraska and is the state beverage. Gotta have that Kool Aid & corn on the cob.
Who ever wrote this article has never paid taxes in Texas. I moved from WA to TX about 5 years ago. Bought a home for about what my home in WA was valued at. according to the tax assessor. Here in TX I am paying nearly 3 times as much on property tax. Austn has the worst traffic congestion in the country. I have yet to see any trees down here. I have seen a lot of tall bushes.
Don't,t worry the best places still to com with Mitt and Ryan for President ,with 8 more year mission accomplish Like monkey Bush will live in Caves.
I think there should be separate listings for the economy and the living environment. Minn. the Dakotas and Nebraska likely have fairly good economies but the weather sucks. Iowa? Likely has a good economy because of the farming but apart from watching the corn grow just what do you do? Also, as far as Maryland and Virginia must be taken into consideration is the cost of living. If you are already wealthy, likely Hawaii is the best but not looking for a job. Utah not so great if you are not Mormon unless you can afford to live in Park City. Oregon is great for outsdoors and Portland great for fun but outside Portland the job market stinks even though Oregon is second in economic growth in the U.S. Texas? If you like tornadeos, cyclones, droughts, crappy looking country, rattlesnakes, and every bush has a thorn on it and every bug has a stinger on both ends. Never do you ever sit down on the grass because of the chiggers or the fireants. Louisiana? Among the poorest states in the U.S. and has one of the worst public school systems in the U.S. People who live there have very poor health and life expectancies. Not much different than next door in Mississippi. The secret to good living in the U.S. is being rich. That way you can live anywhere.

Equities climbed steadily since the opening bell as investors prepared for tomorrow's policy decision from the Federal Reserve. Although chatter in recent weeks has included speculation the Fed would look to taper its asset purchases, today's broad gains suggest investors expect mostly reassuring words from Chairman Bernanke at tomorrow's press conference.
