Los Angeles, Miami, Las Vegas Among "Worst Places to Live"

Time to pile on the cities where people just want a GOTT-DAMM BREAK.  We've got a new list for you today of the top 10 WORST places to live in the U.S.

The list was put together by the website, and it's based on tons of factors, like the unemployment rate, foreclosures, crime statistics, health data, the climate, and more.

They say the WORST place to live is El Centro, California, which is just across the border from Mexico.  El Centro has the highest unemployment rate in the country at 27.5%, and is struggling so much that even the city's cemetery is in foreclosure.

Here's the top 10, with the main reason why each one is on the list:

#1)  El Centro, California.  (description above)

#2)  Cleveland, Ohio.  Cleveland has high unemployment, rough winters, a high rate of corrupt officials, and very high foreclosure rates.

#3)  Detroit, Michigan.  Detroit is America's most dangerous city, and home prices are way down.

#4)  Las Vegas, Nevada.  Last year, Vegas had the highest foreclosure rate in the country.

#5)  Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  Oklahoma City is the unhealthiest city in the U.S., based on 30 different indicators, including obesity rates, exercise rates, parks and more.

#6)  Los Angeles, California.  The L.A. metro area has the worst ozone pollution and the worst traffic in the country.
