Who's up for a ride?


Foggy Autumn Vineyard

Foggy Autumn Vineyard

For an idea of how strong the winds in NorCal are.

A fire that started in Vallejo has jumped the Carquinez Straits. The bridge is closed for now, according to KCBS.

Lots of spot fires breaking out in the North Bay.

I apologize to you all in advance.

My understanding of economics is very basic.

I read the recent OP by White Tara:
"Opinion: The Federal Reserve is in stealth intervention mode" https://www.democraticunderground.com/111686841

It sounds as if a major disaster is about to hit us, but I don't understand enough about economics to even follow the Opinion piece author's argument. I tried looking up some of the terms used, but the whole thing is about as clear as mud to me.

Is anyone willing to offer a simpler explanation of what is going on and where the danger lies? Or can someone point me to a resource (hopefully not book length) that can explain what all of this means re: the current economy and the Fed?

All I've managed to glean from it so far is that the Fed is doing something in stealth mode to try to fend off a disaster.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Regarding the Kurds. Just heard this on KGO's John Rothmann show.

Does anyone see a yellow color cast to this photo? Trying to reconcile what I see on my I-phone with what I see on the laptop.

Coke Bottle Green Waves (for those of you old enough to remember the old Coca Cola bottles)

The theme of the contest was Portals

Second Place: Walking to the light by alfredo (29 votes)

Third Place: The Door to the Sea by CaliforniaPeggy (24 votes)

And now a round of applause for our winners!

I want to thank everyone that entered a photo in the August contest. It was a great set of photos, and your involvement is greatly appreciated.

And thank you to everyone who voted in the contest. Remember, the DU photo contests are open to all DU members. Come join us in future contests!

The next monthly contest is in your hands CurtEastPoint! My understanding is that September is the Seasonal Contest (Summer) and so the next monthly contest will be the October one. Good Luck!
