94, 23, 75, every road in livingston county (I haven't traveled much outside of that in michigan lately, I'm usually leaving the state to vacation, not staying here) that is patches on top of patches.....our roads are in rough shape.lol... sales tax... michigan is one of the lower on the list. not in the bottom ten, but very close. 6% sales tax is GREAT! We were paying 8.xx % in the last few states we lived in.
The property and house and barn I just bought (for an amazing price) you cant touch around the south texas area for even double the price right now. Sure, bfe mississippi or arkansas sure you can probably find something cheaper. BUT, I can go to the UP and buy 100's of acres for what I am paying in chelsea. SO, are we comparing apples to oranges?
have you driven on 27 going up north? are you taking about running 23 or 75? what highways are you guys driving? 94? is that bad? (west of the city). I guess I am just not seeing these "bad" highways (saline milan road SUCKS RIGHT NOW THOUGH!). 10 is not great, but no where near terrible by any means. I have driven this country and back and fourth several times. michigan doesnt have the BEST roads, but to say we have the worst roads on the planet is a bit of stretch...
not trying to compare penis's here. I will lose.
BUT, I just moved back to michigan from across the country were it was "SO MUCH BETTER", and I am simply telling you. IT ISNT...
Also, I know some dont like the cold. BUT, think about all the stuff it keeps away... Ive been in the south for the last several years in the military, and I guess you dont know what you miss till you leave... AND, that is why we are back. :thumb:
Just like I asked someone at work. If you hate it here so much and the grass is so much greener why are you standing on this side of the fence complaining to me? :finger:
Not to mention some of the other states with out income taxes, that can save a significant amount of money as well.
I am not a Michigan hater, I'm just simply saying there are other states that I feel have more to offer. If/when I get the chance to leave michigan it wouldn't be for the miserably hot dusty state of texas filled with immigrants.
Jim, I am not saying michigan roads are the worst, but in the states I listed I found their roads to be better than michigan roads, Highways, primaries and often secondary roads were all smoother.
I really don't hate michigan at all, I was just simply pointing out to Faggar that there are other reasons besides if you have a job or not that you may not choose to live in michigan.
I almost find it comical that those of you who have traveled to places like harlan, windrock, moab, johnson valley, tellico, etc. to go wheeling can't at least see the point of view that is being presented. Michigan has a lot to offer, but other places certainly can compete and may have more to offer.
