    Washington is the best state in the nation, while Louisiana and Alabama are the worst, according to a new analysis by U.S. News & World Report.

    The American rankings and analysis website factored in health care, education, economy, infrastructure, opportunity, fiscal stability, crime and corrections, and natural environment to create its annual list of the best and worst U.S. states.

    New Hampshire (3 Years): 2nd
    Vermont (17 Years): 5th
    Virginia (4 years): 7th
    Massachusetts (1Year): 8th

    Damn I chose good states.

    Seattle is just one city. Washington has other places too.

    There's not much surprise there for me aside from the fact that CA is so high.

    So then how would you explain the huge difference between California and Texas ? California is "supposed to be" horrible.

    None of the States in the "Retirement Belt," outside of Florida and Georgia crack the Top 30.

    I get that but when it is the crown jewel city in your state and it is in the state of despair that video suggested one would think someone would knock it out of #1.

    If your crown jewel is rapidly turning into a $hit hole one might consider not having a jewel addition by subtraction.


    (I like the wordplay on emerald city)

    There are plenty of shitholes that wish they could be Seattle. Every state has its own shitholes, some have more than others.

    Ah yes Washington, plenty of rain, rampant alocholism, heroin overdoses, high taxes and high suicide. Plus #Freeattle. Sounds great.

    It's not much to extol, but having lived in Alabama, Arkansas, and Mississippi, I'd definitely say Alabama should at least rank above the others. While I have not lived in West Virginia, I'd say Alabama should rank above it as well. File my opinion under "tallest midget."

    If Florida would just stop immigration from the shithole states than we would be higher. We need extreme vetting to let "You People" in...

    Utah is such a cool place, then you’ve got the inbreds making it all weird. Then there’s the alcohol laws....

    They need to build a Wall. Every aspiring new resident must speak into a box, and any speech that hints of a northeastern accent must be immediately rejected...

    Subjective ranking that doesn’t take cost of living into account - which makes it a complete joke.

    The only bad thing I can say about Washington is that AlaskaGuy may visit there on occasion. Brrrrrrrrrrr!

    Also, "cheap" is not a synonym of "desirable".
