VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
It's pretty clear to me, that the author of this article is smoking dope.
Naperville? I'm originally from Naperville. Naperville is a suburb of Chicago. FREEZING winters. Terrible traffic. Sky high real estate taxes due to the school systems. DuPage County crap. It's such a hard way of life, my husband refuses to move back when he retires.
Great place to educate kids if you have money. Cute boutique stores. Nice to hold hands and walk around downtown. Then go home someplace else.
Anybody been to Honolulu in the last couple of years????? Homeless everywhere. Last vacation we nick-named one of the beach huts "Heroin Hut" because of off the addicts living under it. Drive along the coasts and notice the tarps, tents and laundry hanging out on the line at the beaches. Those are more homeless. Apparently, Hawaii has some crazy law about beaches being public and the homeless can live there.
Then there's the guy lying on the sidewalk with what looks like hospital tubes coming out of his body. Sign says he's terminal. He's either an addict or that's Honolulu's version of hospice.
Honolulu is pititful.
Obamaville? We won't get to retire in Obamaville - City Hall needs all of the tax money that it can squeeze out of us - even post mortem.
The recognition that a single characteristic should not be the sole determination of the state for early retirement is a wise one. I am glad to find that low taxes is an important consideration, and that my initial home state has that.
