    I see a lot of construction everywhere. The DOW is up and climbing. GDP isn't in step with the DOW and the Construction. Is the construction a result of the reported stockpiles of cash looking for a return??? A new bridge is being built here in Pensacola to replace the existing 3 Mile Pensacola Bay Bridge. The construction barge cranes look new and they are massive . An incredible investment and with equipment I think exceeds the need. I wonder if all this construction and equipment are the result of needs or excess restless money. The former is fantastic, the latter could be bad.

    Chet the big question is who is footing the bill? Someone is paying for it. I guess it must be the tax payer or they cutting money from something else , like healthcare and increasing tolls, property tax, fuel tax, VAT etc. Sorry the Dow is as flat as an pancake, only certain stocks are up, like healthcare one's.

The construction barge cranes look new and they are massive ringer cranes. Ringer means the counter weights for the cranes are so heavy that a round track circles the crane to help support the counter weights. I believe I counted 3 new looking ringer cranes.

    Sometimes republican governors can acquire federal funding easier and quicker than a democrat governor, depending which party is in power at the time of a request.
