The Wolverine State. The capital of the Rust Belt. A Great Lakes state of the Upper Midwest, where the weather changes faster than a NY prostitute. The weather sucks big time. It's too cold for much of the year and too humid in the summer. It is not uncommon in anywhere in Michigan to get some snow in May. It can be 70-degrees one day and in the 50s and rainy the next. The skies are gray with overcast much of the time, making Michigan one of the states with the least amount of sunshine.

It currently ranks 8th in population with almost 10 million people, but will be passed soon by Georgia and North Carolina. Lansing is the capital and Detroit is its largest city. Other important population centers include Grand Rapids, Flint, Kalamazoo-Battle Creek and Ann Arbor. About half of the state lives in the Detroit metro area.

If you think your state has problems, try coming here. Michigan has serious problems and is experiencing a "one state" recession compared to the rest of the U.S., because it is controlled by the corrupt and anitquated labor unions of the auto industry, such as the UAW, and their Democrat money. It has refused to diverisfy its economy by placing all of its economic eggs in this industry alone. This has produced devastating effects: Michigan and Detroit have become the capital of the Rust Belt; the most job losses of any state and the highest unemployment rate as plants close, downsize or move to Mexico; people then move south or file for unemployment or transfer to plants out of state; the nation’s highest number of foreclosures; and a decline in population as people move elsewhere to find work. Things have gotten so bad for many of Michigan’s cities, that Governor Jennifer Granholm initiated a failed “cool cities” initiative to attract young folk back to its cities. It will never work because once Michiganders graduate from college, they usually leave this place. Who could blame them?

Outside its cornfields and declining Rust Belt cities, Michigan has some nice places, mostly in the far north Lower Peninsula and Upper Peninsula (which should belong to Wisconsin). The state is generally Dull with a capital-D with not much to do. However, Mackinac Island (pronounced MAC-IN-AW)is popular in the summer. Frankenmuth has the world's largest Christmas store and Detroit is only good for going to casinos and bars. OK, so Dearborn (a Detroit suburb) has Greenfield Village and Detroit is four professional sport teams, but the rest of the city is an urban nightmare and should almost be avoided at all costs.

Most Michiganders love to escape their "downstate" urban hell for their cabins or summer homes in Northern Michigan. Northern Michigan is good for hunting, fishing, skiing and going to the lake. Michiganders talk with a funny accent that resembles a northern dialect heard in Wisconsin, Minnesota or Ontario. Michiganders can't drive worth a damb and usually speed on the freeway as if they were in the Indy 500. Other than that, Michiganders have Midwest values and are generally friendly when compared to either coast.
Michigan is generally dull with not many good paying jobs anymore, but it is NOT the worst state to live in compared to those Great Plains States.

The welcome sign says, "Welcome to Michigan. Great Lakes. Great Times." I don't know why because there isn't much to do or see. Hunting, yes. Fishing, yes. Ice fishing, yes. And Sometimes snow skiing. Then there is the world's largest Christmas store in Frankenmuth, Greenfield Village in suburban Detroit and Mackinac Island (pronounced MAK-IN-AW) in northern Michigan, which is only good in the summer. Does all this qualify as something to do? Not in my opinion, but that's just me. Generally Michigan is a boring state to live in. No culture. No diversity, unless wiggers, hicks and white suburban yuppies count. No mountains. No amusement parks. No beaches or hot women in bikinis, except in the far south if you like polluted Lake Michigan. No awsome shopping opportunites like Chicago, Seattle or San Fran. There aren't many high-paying jobs either--at least not as many as there used to be because they all went to the Sun Belt or Mexico. Most people, IF they have a job, work in auto assembly plants downstate. The rest are either hick farmers and low-paying service workers. You will be looking for a long time to find work in this state. It should be part of Ontario. Michigan is not a very good state but, in fairness, is not the worst either. That would go to one of those Great Plains or Redneck States.
The biggest mistake I ever made was not moving out of Michigan sooner.

1. the capital of the rustbelt

2. a place one will rarely find a job. The ones that are there are leaving soon.

3. its largest city is Detroit where its population is leaving by the droves.

4. its good if you like skiing, snowmobiling, fishing or hunting

5. too many rednecks in the northern part of the state

6. land of decaying, industrial towns of all sizes that are overpopulated with old-fart-GM retirees who dont know how to drive worth a dam

7. Their idiotic northern accent drives me nuts. Dont know how to pronounce simple words like hike,like bike, milk or can. Hike, like and bike are pronounced "hoyk" "loyk" and "boyk." Milk is pronounced "melk" and can is pronounced "ken"
Michigan sucks and has absolutely no hope whatsoever.

A state composed of rundown cites and a backwoods full of militia members working on their '87 Camaros.
What is that smell? Any why is everyone around me driving El Caminos and various other rusted out junkers? Oh dear God I've taken a wrong turn and now I'm in Michigan!

Sucks. Ohio's bitch. (See '07 Pistons, Tigers, Football and Basketball Wolverines, even lost wrestling in '08.) Crappy football team, ugly-ass uniforms. It's no accident that Hell is in Michigan. It's really redundant, when you think about it.
O-H I-O. "We don't give a damn about the whole state of Michigan, weeeeeeeeeee're from OHIO!"
