And, it's closer to Hawaii.

So far, there are at least 5 here that live in Chicago, know it's a shithole, but won't leave it. Then there's the fruits in basically the same shithole ( New Jersey) - that won't leave either. Lest we forget the California high roller kooks that pay over 50% in annual income taxes. Ya can't make this stuff up!!

..
Not sure how you people endure all that ****?!

First of all, where I live in NJ is nowhere near as much of a shithole as the greater Chicago area. Secondly, whether or not I will leave New Jersey is not a question at all, I WILL be leaving. In fact, our "worst case" retirement scenario projects full retirement for both my wife and I in 7 years, so if 7 years from today, there isn't at very least a "For Sale" sign on my front yard, something has gone horribly wrong in my life. Best case is to get the sign out there in 2-3 years.

Take your opinion and bury it up your ignorant, insecure ***.

Oh dear. Since you are such a passive aggressive ***** - stay away from HI. You fit very well in the shithole of general Chigaco

And Oahu isn't Hawaii. You can call it greater LA or perhaps west Miami Beach but it isn't Hawaii.

It doesn't matter what my issues are. By saying "Oahu isn't Hawaii" just shows both your denial of the absolute reality that the island is most definitely politically defined as part of the state, but it also shows how you gravitate towards an elitist smug attitude of superiority that you're not entitled to claim because you're just some Haole douche bag liberal to start with.

I would do it just to get out of shitty Illinois you talk about a shithole. That's a shithole
Besides you can learn to surf. The only sport in Chicago is trying not to f'd by your shitty politicians.

Are there any high cost of living cities that are considered **** holes?

I have no kids or pets, our house is paid off so it can sit for a while if we just rent a condo. My wife doesn't need to work. Sounds like a perfect fit but the pay is at least 20% less. I can store my furniture and just buy when I get there. (They admitted no relocation reimbursement) But I just bought a new car so I'll most likely ship that there. This is absolutely crazy and I have no idea what to do. It almost feels like destiny because we're totally the people this makes both lifestyle and financial sense for.

****.
20% lower salary and, most likely higher cost of living..so a double whammy

That's the biggest misconception, Illinois is not currently a shitehole, it's actually a very nice place to live. This is what people get wrong. They see the gang violence and they think it's crap. Oh no no no, IT WILL BE A SHITHOLE. That's the biggest problem. Taxes and underfunded pentions, coupled with tax perks for corporations just to paint a false rosie picture is what will doom this state. It's a sinking ****, not a sunk ship.

Again, big misconception about Chicago. 99.9% of the shootings are in the neighborhoods you wouldn't go in anyway.

I already made my choice pretty clear so either read the thread or find something else to so.

Maybe true but the taxation and firearms laws are enough to make me call it a **** hole.
