Vegas - A bust

To say that I'm not a huge fan of Vegas would be somewhat of an understatement. The unfortunate part is that if we'd rented a vehicle of some sort, it could have been a nice trip. But being as we were marooned in the Strip, there's only so many upscale shops, casinos and hotels to see before you get a little bored. Neither of us being gamblers, we "gambled" for about a total of 30 minutes... playing slots. We won $100 too! So we cashed out and were done with it. Unfortunately, that was no nearly enough to pay for dinner that night. Being from Pittsburgh, voted the most liveable city in the country, with good prices on everything from houses to a pint, I was in complete sticker shock. $8 for a beer, $12 for a glass of wine, $30-40 for a "real" meal. Of course, you can find cheaper food, in strip mall type fast food places, but I really don't consider that going "out."
The best part of the whole trip for me was sitting out by the pool in 90+ degree weather and actually getting hot enough to get in the pool. That did not happen one single time in Pittsburgh this year.
So, I'll sum it up like this... if you get a chance to go to Vegas and you're not a big gambler, plan on taking some trips out of the strip to see some of the mountains or the Hoover Dam. That probably would have saved the trip for me. Otherwise, I'm marking down as a "been there, done that, not goin' back."

This QE thing is a disaster waiting to happen everytime the government prints more dollars the less their value. I believe that creating money out of thin air can only result in one thing and that is inflation. The growing inequality over the last three decades has been caused in large part because employees particularly low skilled and unskilled employees do not get an increase in their compensation that equals the increase in living costs. This will just cause the bottom third of the population to become more and more dependant on friends family private charities and the government for their support instead of their employers.
