All my good lib neighbors were out this weekend with their gas powered leaf blowers to collect leaves on their .2 acre lots. Those are the same people who have John Deere riding mowers for cutting those lots in the summer. The fatsos riding them barely have enough room in the yard to turn the mowers around so they are continually shifting into and out of reverse. These people make me sick. They all vote for people who want to pass laws (and raise energy costs) to limit greenhouse gases while driving their big crew cab trucks that are rarely seen with more than grocery bags in the back. They feed their fat asses and fart methane into the atmosphere while riding on mowers and blowing leaves. They all vote for every new school tax increase and then complain about property taxes being so high. These f***ing people make me want to puke. Problem is the country's full of them. Hypocrites in the suburbs and generational welfare families in the cities. We're f***ing doomed.

Greetings Snerdly:

Well, that's not exactly way I would have put it, but yeah, my neighborhood is a lot like yours. Because I live in a "blue" area of the country, it is safe to assume that there is better than a 50/50 chance any given neighbor votes for people who support the extremist green movement. So far, I'm the only person on my street that I've seen using an old-fashioned rake, and that uses a push mower (except one neighbor that has a 0.1 acre lot). We are also the only 1-car household, with the rest having at least one truck or SUV amongst the fleet of autos, boats, ATVs, snowmobiles, etc.
