This was posted on another forum and I felt this would also be a good spot for it to get the word out to as many as possible who might be affected by this kind of political attitude.



Rep Mike Jaros from Duluth Mn sent the following letter to one of his constituents in response to a letter about motorized recreation. The question was not even about snowmobiles, but he slams them anyways.

If you are on other sled, ATV, Jeep, boat or motorcycle boards where people from Duluth Mn might see this, please re-post it there.

Here's the letter:

Hi Greg,

Thanks for your message. We are running out of energy, so why waste it on recreational vehicles? If you want to recreate, sit in a boat and power it manually like we used to do it. Also, you can ride in a sled with manually propelled devices and ATVs could be driven with manpower. That is real exercise!

You must see how energy prices are skyrocketing and all prices are rising, because everything we touch, buy or see is dependent on energy. I went to a seminar last January where two world energy experts said that in about 25 years freeways and airports will be historical museums. We will have to go back to horses and buggies, trains and boats, which are most economical transportation.

I was not asked by MRR to introduce my bill, but I guess they are supporting it. I do not care - I do what I think is right. There are some who believe that giving your organizations gas tax money is unconstitutional, I believe it is not, because when the constitution was written there were no paved roads. Good Roads Association believes your programs are getting too much money. I introduced the bill to look into all of these issues and decide next biennium who is right and who is wrong.

Best wishes and take it easy - relax, recreate and enjoy life, because it is too short! Motorized vehicles and snowmobiles make life too fast and too many people are getting killed on those devils!

Best wishes,

I cannot type the response I would like to give on this HSOforum. All you would see is "poor work usage"

    • If you consider the "thugs" as part of the protest group (which DC police even said they weren't, but only intended to do damage) then the answer is yes. The labeling of all because of the actions of a few is something I have and always will disagree with.
    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
