Re: Burners & the Pyramid Lake Paiutes: Time to Renew Respect

I've never yet met a Paiute who didn't appreciate me stopping going to and from BRC to buy a half dozen Indian Tacos for me and my mates. Exactly. It is an opportunity to have a conversation. What is going on in your neighborhood? How is your family? How are things changing? What do you think of al...

Re: Burners & the Pyramid Lake Paiutes: Time to Renew Respect

It's timely, with the black lives matter equality Equity movement sensibility extending to Native Americans. Indians are gaining power, economically and politically. What we want is for the Paiutes to love us, and the event, because every single burner behaves well. https://www.politico.com/news/20...

Re: your donation and taxes

Do donations come off of Taxes Payable or off of Income... How much would a donation of $300 reduce one's taxes? I guess that varies from 1 person to another depending on your tax bracket. But it's way less than $300. :D Charitable donations of goods and money to qualified organizations can be dedu...

Re: your donation and taxes

Yes. If you feel inclined to do so. 7. Charitable donations Normally, deductions for charitable donations are only available to filers who itemize. But in 2020, you can deduct donations of up to $300 even if you don't itemize. That $300 applies whether you're a single filer or you file a joint retur...

Re: Nevada proposes new "company towns" ~ autonomous zones

Isn't Empire still a company town? How would this proposal change things? The average strip mall is bigger than Empire. At that scale I don't think it matters. I think that on a scale any bigger than that when a "government" is beholden to shareholders over citizens bad things are bound to happen &...

Apparently the Mc rib is not on the menu year round because they sell sooooo many that it raises pork prices to the point where it's not cost affective to keep it on the menu.

When pork prices drop, they sell them again. (I've never had one.)
