That's the only conclusion we can draw after learning that housing construction has dropped...again! According to the East Bay Business Times, new home construction dropped 37 percent, compared with the same period last year. And in the East Bay, housing construction dropped almost 72 percent. Now, we know some Johnny-Come-Smartlies out there will say this is due to a collapse in credit markets for both construction and home ownership. But we say you'd all just rather play on Facebook all day. After all, consider this: again according to the Biz Times, California's oil production is at its lowest point in 66 years. And no, we don't want to hear some fairy tale about a national shortage of drilling rigs and crews. Did the dog eat your homework too? Really, you disgust us.
