    I said this could be going on in states all over the country, not every state in the country. Calif and Florida come to mind, both have huge off shore oil deposits they refuse to extract.

    Good links Fiddy. The effect of boom times is always multifaceted. The boom gives but there are some take aways as well.

    Infrastructure to support growth, is a very important consideration and then with all the complexities of state budgets and income sources, well, the oil money is not pure state profit.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    How many jobs would become available and how many people do you think are willing to leave their homes and family to work and live on a off shore oil rig? Certainly not enough to lower the unemployment ranks significantly.

    Yours is a pipe dream.

    You'd get a lot of young bucks and desperate fathers or mothers trying to make ends meet by going to those jobs.

    That's why those jobs pay so well.

    Sounds like the flood damage and growing pains sops the money up.

    One thing to remember, the infrastructure work creats jobs so the oil jobs create satellite jobs. This is how the boom spreads out to all industry.
