New Study Ranks California Dead Last in Quality of Life

Postby Professor Fate » Thu Mar 01, 2018 2:53 pm

California has the worst quality of life in America.

At least that's what U.S. News & World Report's most-recent Best States rankings say. The Golden State ranked 50th in quality of life by fairing poorly in the natural and social environment categories.

The report, released Tuesday, ranks states based on a healthy environment and a sense of community. It takes into account each state's urban air quality, pollution and voter participation, among other measures.

California ranked last in urban air quality and 45th in "low pollution health risk," although it was 13th in drinking water quality. The state also found itself second-to-last in voter participation, 44th in community engagement and 38th in social support.

Despite its beaches, redwood trees and Hollywood glam, the state's blemishes are often highlighted. Los Angeles consistently leads as the world's most traffic-congested urban area and even its own citizens have tried to secede multiple times.

The best states?
1. N. Dakota
2. Minnesota
3. Wisconsin
4. New Hampshire
5. S. Dakota
6. Mississippi
7. Arkansas
8. New Mexico
9. Iowa
10. Colorado

Well, obviously we have giant butterflies in CA. They's climbin' in your windows, They's snatchin' your people up, tryin' to steal 'em. So y'all need to hide your kids, hide your stars, and hide your coaches cause they're grabin' everybody out here.

Looking at the first five states on that list, the two most important criteria must have been the willingness to shovel snow and freeze your nuts off.

Nos. 8, 9, and 10 should be included in the freeze your nuts off category. I've spent time in all of three of them during winter months.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

That would include all of them except Mississippi and Arkansas, where the list of "things to do" is brief: 1) Eat things 2) Drink things 3) Shoot things 4) Repeat

If CA came in last, they must have surveyed people sitting in their cars on the 405

Looking at that list again, how did Mississippi get in there? It's like one of those "Which one isn't like the others" questions. New Mexico too, except for maybe, like three towns.
Don't look at me, I just work here.

Remember when all the songs were about going to California...A U-haul from Texas to Cali is around 289 bucks and about a thousand bucks more going Cali to Texas...just shocking!

Wishing it was 1984...or earlier. My kids don't know what it was like...beaches, hardly any graffiti...no tent cities...Have you been to the court house lately...The Homeless Hilton...I am sure it has nothing what so ever to do with liberal policies enacted over the last oh 20 years or so...we are definitely on the down swing...How is the high speed rail system coming along?

Really gives new meaning to being a Sanctuary State...it's a stanktuary all right...

Pick one specific comparisons can be made.

I knew neither of you would answer. CA haters never answer that question.
