    I am seeing exactly the same thing. New Construction gave way for repairs and upgrades. Starting to see new construction with the repairs still going up. It is a good sign.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Spring time, when things are blooming, is when the environment is suppose to be ripe for shovel-ready jobs.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    They are skyrocketing in anticipation of Obamacare.

    Haha - I'd imagine there are a few of those "shovel-ready jobs" being offered at the Churchill Downs stables this weekend.

    Healthcare costs were skyrocketing long before Obamacare, as well.

    Yes they were and they are going to continue skyrocketing. That's why businesses do what they do in anticipation of Obamacare. Glad to see you understand it clearly.

    Let me get this straight... 1) since the GOP is, apparently, legislating what science is taught in schools, that 2) businesses who don't agree are going to 'relocate' and 3) immigrants are going to take *my* jobs? And, somehow, this is going to 4) put downward pressure on jobs in conservative states?

    And don't try to spin 'No Child Left Behind' as conservative, it had OVERWHELMING bipartisan support. Heck, the democrats had more yes votes than the republicans in both the house and senate!

    ROTFLOL... Obama had his day with complete control of government, and he didn't have a budget and spent 6Trillion.

    WTF happened to the money and Obama's oft repeated "laser-like focus on the economy"? Where are all those shovel ready yobs? What happened to all this fantastic "investment"?

    The government's job isn't to steal wealth and distribute it to their pet projects... if they want to do that, then open a business... their job is to create a fertile environment to attract investment (low taxes, sane regulations and regulatory practices).

    Obama was busy backdooring ObamaKare, now he's on a gun hunt... and... when 0bama's prescriptions are doomed to failure... you don't just jump in the bus and ride off the cliff. Democrats can do that... the patriotic opposition doesn't have to.

    For example... Democrats OWN ObamaKare. When it tanks... all fingers point to the Sozialists of Amerika Partei (SAPs)/Democrats. Of course... they will Kermit Gosnell that bit of info to the very best of their ability. To the journ-O-lists... the Goebbels Press Corps(e) ObamaKare will be like the ashes of an abortion floating through the desert winds.

    You had no point, so yes it was validated. You typed one sentence of snobbery and got a more than valid reply.

    If you don't like my posts, then ignore them...or you will indeed keep proving my point.
