  1. Today
  2. Yellen is more intelligent than ANYONE who worked for (kissed the ass) of Trump. Anyway, I find it ironic that folks who enjoy a snowmobile trail system, the very existence of which resulted from so called "socialist" principles - volunteering for the good of others, transfer payments from richer provinces to Quebec, federal and provincial government grants and support - should find such fault with the system that created it. Not to mention our "socialist" health care system - the like of which is sometimes visited by those out of country who, injured, receive care equal to that of local residents without having to worry about what hospital they "subscribe" to. This is a snowmobiling forum isn't it? Ah well.....
  3. Ever notice how politicians say they are "investing the governments $" to justify spending when what they should say is they're spending your $!
  5. Yesterday
  6. Bend over it’s coming. Fix is in there too. Another steal in broad daylight.
  7. Cletus is a good chap to know in that area, has a garage and can fix you up right away. He helped us out when one of our riders tore a track a few years backs when we ran the coastline.
  8. We tend to not cross and go through town looking for the trail unless you’re heading west into Ontario rather we cross to the southern side and go east following the river almost to the dam where you’ll find a trail taking you off the river. None of it is marked but it’s beaten down from the locals. These are my stomping grounds.
  9. It is a very sad day to realize that the real agenda is to continually push a liberal far left agenda where you encourage a base that refuses to pull their end of the rope to vote for a party that raises taxes solely for social entitlements. When that group gets bigger than the group actually working for a living they just keep voting to take more from those who are now supporting them. It is socialism and that turns into communism when everyone is depending on the government rather than themselves. Next stop, government health care, take away firearms, and presto....the people have no power. Glad I am not 15!!
  10. They'll attempt to unsuccessfully inflate their way out of the global debt problem leading to the dreaded D word in 3-5 years!
  11. I am just glad my 40 years working will help those less fortunate than me you know those folks that early on realized doing something that was not necessarily easy, or fun every day (AKA a job) was something they wanted any part of. I take solace in the thought that our government will use my taxes wisely ensuring that the money I have worked for and saved over my 40 years of uninterrupted work will help the disenfranchised have a good retirement also. If we (the working class mostly known as the republican party) lose the Senate in the Georgia runoff, we are screwed.
  12. Does not affect almost all who voted Biden. They don’t work or pay taxes. Especially the dead who voted no difference to them.
  13. President-elect Joe Biden announced Monday that he will nominate Janet Yellen, a former chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank, to be his Secretary of the Treasury. What does that mean to American taxpayers? To start, it means your personal income taxes will increase, your 401k will drop in value as the Biden administration and Yellen increase the corporate tax on the corporate stocks in your 401k, and your cost of gasoline and energy will increase. Most telling, Yellen has previously stated her opposition to the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act, also known as the "Trump tax cuts" which reduced the corporate income tax and personal income tax. BIDEN PICKS YELLEN FOR TREASURY SECRETARY, DEMOCRATIC OPERATIVE TANDEN FOR OMB DIRECTOR She wrote in a co-bylined op-ed in the Washington Post in 2018 that there was no need for a tax cut because, “the economy was already at or close to full employment and did not need a boost.” Americans who found jobs after the enactment of the tax cuts would disagree. After the tax cuts were signed into law in December 2017, the unemployment rate dropped from 4.1% down to 3.5% just before the pandemic hit. African American unemployment dropped from 6.7% to 5.8% and Hispanic unemployment dropped from 5.0% to 4.4%. 5,122,000 jobs were created from December 2017 to February 2020. The labor force participation rate rose from 62.7% to 63.4%. Video Median household income increased by $4,440 or 6.8% in 2019 -- the largest one-year wage growth in history. All that will run backwards by repealing the tax cut that gave us the growth and jobs. Biden and Vice Presdient-elect Kamala Harris said repeatedly during the 2020 presidential campaign that they will “eliminate” the Trump tax cuts on “day one.” Such a repeal would impose a $2,000 annual tax hike on a median-income family of four and a $1,300 tax hike on a median income single parent with one child. WHO IS JANET YELLEN? Repeal of the tax cuts also means the individual mandate tax will come back into force, hitting five million households with a $695 - $2,085 tax. 75% of these households make less than $50,000 per year. The liberal Yellen will gladly carry out Biden’s tax hike plans. Biden wants to double the top capital gains rate to 40%, the highest since Jimmy Carter in 1977. He wants everyone -- “every single solitary person” -- to pay capital gains taxes at ordinary income tax rates. Biden also wants to impose yet another middle-income tax hike by eliminating the step-up as the basis for capital gains. When you try to leave an asset to your spouse or children, he will force an immediate capital gains realization upon transfer of the asset. 7 FINANCIAL PLANNING TIPS TO ACT ON BEFORE THE END OF 2020 Trump permanently lowered the U.S. corporate income tax to 21% which finally made America competitive with other nations on tax policy. Yellen will be tasked with helping Biden raise the corporate tax rate to 28%, even higher than Communist China’s 25%. The Treasury also oversees the IRS, so look for Biden and Yellen to increase the IRS enforcement budget so more agents can audit your small business. Choosing Yellen tells us that Biden will keep his promise/threat to impose a tax on energy. Yellen is a longtime supporter of placing a tax on energy. She has endorsed an energy/carbon tax of $40 a ton which translates into a 40-cent increase in the cost of a gallon of gasoline when you fill your tank. This energy/carbon tax will also increase the cost of your home heating oil, natural gas, and the cost of all products shipped to stores or your home by truck, plane, or rail. GET FOX BUSINESS ON THE GO BY CLICKING HERE Once in law, the Yellen carbon tax automatically ratchets up each year. A tax increase every year, on autopilot, without a vote from congress. A new gusher of your tax dollars pouring into Washington DC, a politician’s dream. Even former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton refused to endorse such a tax when she ran for president in 2016 because her studies showed a carbon tax would devastate low and middle-income households. And picking Yellen also signals that it is full speed ahead on increasing spending. Rather than enact the $500 million COVID-focused legislation from the Republican senate, Yellen and Biden support the $3 trillion spending spree to subsidize states and big cities that bankrupted themselves due to decades of overspending and mismanagement plus gold-plated pension for unionized government workers. Promising to nominate Yellen to lead the Treasury Department, an advocate of higher income taxes and new taxes on energy/gas demonstrates that Biden will follow through on his threat to raise taxes at least $4 trillion and did not mean a word of his promise to never raise a penny of any tax on taxes on anyone who earns less than $400,000. Let's be honest, most people filling up their tanks with gas make somewhat less than $400,000.
  14. There are ground floor rooms in the section detached from the main building, probably were not any available when you were there.
  15. Are there any ground floor rooms available at this motel yet? Stayed there in August two years ago and there were none - had to pack my stuff up a flight of stairs to second story despite asking for ground floor due to mobility issues at the time. I was told there were no ground floor rooms - not sure if there were not any, or not any available at the time. You seem to know a lot about this place?
  16. So true... if you look at Dufour's channel, he's got a few of a unit in the process of being installed in the shop, along with a few others where it's sitting outside and "flexing"! Anyway, I'll get back with a report once we get this baby rockin' ..
  17. Few more of the new outdoor area
  18. One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.' The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door. Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen doughnuts waiting for him at his door. Then a Member of Congress came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The Member of Congress was very happy and left the shop. The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Members of Congress lined up waiting for a free haircut. And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.
  19. Trail still in the works. I've been told club is aiming for 2021. Route still to be determined. Yes restaurant le classic is closed this winter. That sucks!
  20. Last week
  21. Cannot really argue with this statement, the last 3 years saw the largest percentage of employment in a half century, you could have had 3 jobs if you wanted, only people out of work on public assistance were those who refused to work, and everyone was still trying to hire until covid came. Trump may not have pleased everyone but no question he really made the economy go, we saw our best 3 consecutive years ever, 47 years, the best 3, absolutely no coincidence. Watch what happens, by August gas will be 3 to 3.50 a gallon, heating oil will go up, natural gas will go up, stock market will go down, and....they will blame it all on Trump.Raising taxes will not make it better, they will just need the money to be able to pay those who cannot find work. Crazy shit, going from everyone trying to hire to no jobs available.If this happens we will be looking at another change in 4 years.
  22. Are you saying they are going start Grooming this again this up to Clova? If so will they also have access from say the Classic? I think that was closed off lately. Thanks in advance.
