Busy

Wow! It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything.
I’ve been busy with:

  • Home rebuild
  • Work
  • Freelancing work
  • New puppy

Anyway, soon I’ll have some things to post as far as client work updates like what I’ve learned with AngularJS for a vital client project and how awesome biscotti can be.

For now, check out Beam Me Up Biscotti for an example of some recent work and place an order! Seriously, the best biscotti I’ve ever had and Laura is a dear friend of mine.

Rawles on QE3

Does anyone really believe this Pollyanna pie-in-the-sky nonsense now coming from the mainstream media? With QE3, We All Win — Poor and Rich Alike. What balderdash! Let’s face facts, folks: The Federal Reserve has backed itself into a corner. They can’t do anything that will trigger higher interest rates. So the only arrow left in their quiver is monetization (“quantitative easing” is the gentler, sugar-coated name.) Their brilliant plan is to re-inflate the housing bubble by buying up $40 billion per month, indefinitely, in mortgage derivatives using make-believe money. This pure fiat “money” is coming from their Sunshine Pump. I can only ask: How long can that continue? And how long will it be until our foreign creditors demand a higher rate of return to roll over their Treasury paper? Once interest rates rise, the party will be over. We will see a credit collapse and then a collapse of the US Dollar. – SB

This is the part of the post where I say, ‘duh‘ and hope that anyone reading this wakes up to the reality of the day and helps others pull their heads from either the sand or a shady orifice.
