The economy is bad all over. Try living in the foreclosure capital of the USA. Stockton, Ca. We were even on 60 minutes. We are luckier then most. We own our home. But the value has dropped 25 %. Lets all hope that things will change. God I am so sick of that word... Maybe I should say "Lets get it right this time..."

I'd move. It propbably won't get better for a long time. Or maybe never. From what I've heard Michigan is about one of the worst places right now. They've been in a recession for a long time. I moved from Florida for similar reasons. The house I own now, would be 3 to 4 times as much there, and my pay would be the same.

yeah... i think michigan loses 10,000 people a month..... and with detroit being an autoindustry driven city.... it tanked......unions/greedy folks killed the big 3........

there was never a backup industry to support the area..... from engineers to factory workers...thats it really...... even the new architecture here sucks...hahha...... makes me wonder sometime....

maybe i should be a street performer....do the robot...

on another note...theres 3 big casinoes here that just suck the area dry...... part of the funds was supposed to support the schools.....but i think 100 schools closed within a year......

they need to consolidate everyone to one area of detroit and then create an inner-city sprawl.......

just watch out for the property taxes.... they are crazy high for no reason

i wanted to buy a lot and build a shop/house..... but you can buy a building in detroit for any where from 5,000 to 50,000 depending on the owner............ alot of people hold on to their messed up buildings thinking they are gonna strike it rich one day...hahahaha......i was looking at a 2 story building to live/work and could have gotten it for about 60gs...... but work slowed down and couldnt make it happen..... would have been perfect for me...... get the mini screen shop going and my furniture line going also....
