On one hand, America has mostly clean air, great national parks, mountains, beaches, and a variety of climates ranging from tundra to taiga, grassland, mountain, and tropical.

On the other hand, America is one of the worst countries to live in.

The cost of living is insanely expensive. Prices keep shooting skyward while paychecks crash downwards. America is the only industrialized nation on Earth with no universal/national healthcare. Medical emergencies easily cost 5 and sometimes 6 figure prices which often have to be paid out of pocket and are the #1 cause of bankruptcies.

The culture is fake, inauthentic, toxic, soulless, and socially disconnected. The entire social atmosphere is confined to closed cliques. Default ice barriers are between all strangers, and their is no human connection. Every man is an island and expected to stay out of everyone's lives and mind their own business. One is literally alone in heavy crowds. And speaking of being alone, going out alone in America makes you look like a loser to everyone, and you stay alone. Friendships are fake, superficial, and fleeting, mostly a facade. Any/all conversations with strangers are strictly business-related. People live to work, they work easily 100 to 120 hours a week, and they don't have time for anyone anymore.

The dating/marriage scene for American guys is in the sewer. American women are a divorce, prison, and a restraining order just waiting to happen. American women are also gold diggers, only wanting guys with huge, luxury McMansions, expensive luxury sports cars; guys, you want a relationship with an American woman, your next zip code of residency better be 90210 if you want your future marriage to work out. American women are also hateful, unapproachable, and spoiled rotten with a bad attitude. Roughly 98% of American women younger than 30 are lesbian, and America in general is a man-hating culture. A rapidly growing number of American women are also filing false rape charges on guys they don't like. Also, there are about 1,000-3,500 single men to every one single woman in America.

Some pretty neat places to visit, a stadium, the Gateway Arch, and the Missouri Botanical Gardens. But the city's north side has some of the most violent, high crime neighborhoods in America. And tourists and locals, STAY THE HECK AWAY from East St. Louis! East St. Louis is a terrorist city. Terrorists live in East St. Louis. They blow things up day and night. Numerous roadside bombs get detonated every day in East St. Louis; East St. Louis is about as dangerous as Baghdad, Iraq! Even the FBI and Homeland Security warns against all travel to East St. Louis.

Terrible place to visit, and a terrible place to live.

The entire city proper east of Cicero Avenue from Lawrence Avenue southward is all one huge endless ghetto. Even Downtown Chicago is a horrible, extremely bad neighborhood. What was once the Magnificent Mile is a war zone of flash mob shootings, homicides, armed robberies, all targeted at innocent people. There's shootings every day inside Chicago's museums and sports facilities. The "El" has become a death trap with flash mobs toting stolen MP-5s shooting up trains and then robbing everyone on board. Even CTA buses get shot up in broad daylight by the flash mobs. And the flash mobs target law enforcement, media personnell, and innocent people. The rest of the city is violent gangs such as the Gangster Disciples, the Latin Kings, the Four Corner Hustlers, and the Mickey Cobras. The same huge ghetto also extends south right into the southern suburbs, covering the urban areas of Dolton, Harvey, Midlothian, Blue Island, South Holland, Country Club Hills, Matteson, Richton Park, Steger, Chicago Heights, South Chicago Heights, Ford Heights, Glenwood, Lynwood, Dyer, Lansing, Munster, Hammond, Whiting, East Chicago, Highland, Griffith, Merrillville, Gary, and Schererville.

West of Illinois Route 50/Cicero Avenue may be much safer, but there's nothing to do but work. Chicago suburbs people are hateful, anti-social, closed, and disconnected from one another. People in DuPage County (including the suburbs of Lombard, Glen Ellyn, Wheaton, Downers Grove, Naperville, Batavia, and West Chicago) have a zero tolerance policy towards strangers. You can see them in their closed little cliques. No strangers allowed. Any/all conversations with anyone are strictly business-related. Guys, going out alone in DuPage County makes you look like a massacre suspect, and you get avoided by a wide margin. Approach a woman and/or have non-business related conversation with a stranger = 55 years in prison. Lake County (including the suburbs of Gurnee, Waukegan, Libertyville, Grayslake, Lake Villa, and Zion) is a mirror image of DuPage County.

Overall, I'm a fan. I'm not going to say the traffic is "not that bad", because it's pretty ridiculous, but it's actually not as bad as I expected. Having spent a lot of time in SF and Seattle, where the traffic can be pretty crippling at times, I came to understand the value of commuting in the off-peak hours. Not everyone can do that but 9 times out of 10 I have the ability to leave my place before 7 and come back before 3. If not, I'll try to leave after 10 and come back after 7. The people here, like many big cities, don't always have time to chat, but I've found folks more or less friendly. Flaky yes; you'll get a lot of excitement about meeting up only to find that just a select few follow through. But I like the neighborhoods here, there is a lot of variety, and you'll find your pockets that you enjoy and spend most of your time in. The air quality is not good which bothers me more for my kids than for me, but if weren't for that and of course the high price of living, I could see us spending a long time here. There are so many opportunities, and movers and shakers out here, that it's a place where you can make some jumps in life once you figure out how to navigate the places and personalities.

I kind of dig Albuquerque. I've been spending some more time here and there's a charm to it, especially in Old Town. There's some great food there, as ABQ is the home of green chile. It's got four seasons, housing is very affordable, and honestly I like most of the people, there's a bit of indifference but also a good amount of a southern hospitality of sorts.
