Someone Tell President Obama: American Bridges Aren't "Crumbling"

The amount the stock market has "risen" in the last 4.5 years is equivalent to the devaluation of the dollar that has occurred because of our fiscal policies. If you don't understand the concept, it takes more green paper bills to buy the same product than it did 3.5 years ago. AT LEAST AS MANY. If you still don't understand; the "rise" in the stock market is based up inflated (printed) dollars, not real ones. If you still don't understand, God help you, (yes I DO mean that literally)

That's correct. The feds are printing $85 billlion per month! The dollar is just not worth as much as it used to be...

President Obama has been on a blitz while pushing what seems to be an evergreen priority for Democrats these days: "infrastructure investment." In his State of the Union speech, President Obama spoke of Merica's "deteriorating roads and bridges" and proposed what he called a "Fix-It-First" program that would see the government hire construction workers to work on America's infrastructure.

This worry is overblown. The Reason Foundation put out a report this week that found America's infrastructure is in fine shape, though there's certainly work to be done.
