    Brookline Massachusetts, Home Of Smirking Weasle Mike Dukakis:

    Todays News,
    Brookline is, of course, the ultimate people’s republic.

    It is a town with streets that run into Boston, but that are barricaded the other way, to prevent the riffraff from driving their muffler-free low-riders into Muddy River. Brookline celebrates diversity - in Boston. Brookline supported busing - in Boston. Mike Dukakis is the prototypical Brookline resident, and now his aging disciples are acting up again at Town Meeting.

    This year the Beautiful People aren’t trying to ban hand-held cell phones or spanking. This time it’s the turn of the dreaded SUV to feel the wrath of the self-righteous.

    Wow, I always thought that Brookline had one way and sometimes even barricaded streets because the streets were laid out 400 years ago. Well before it occurred to anyone to make 'em wide enough for 2 way car traffic, which of course would be invented 250 years later. Next 'ol Harry... I mean Howie will be telling us that the rich people of Beacon Hill had the hill itself installed to make it harder for the riff raff to climb up there and that the snooty people of Cambridge dug out the Charles river to keep the degenerates of Boston out?

    Is it self-righteous or hypocritical of me to feel that Howie, who never carries more than his reporter's notebook to and from work could get by with something smaller than a Ford Excursion and should therefore pay a little more in excise tax if he chooses to drive so big a vehicle? Even though I drive an even bigger vehicle? I use my work van for personal errands on occasion and I know for a fact that my business would suffer if I showed up at a customer's house with 1500 ft of their new carpet strapped to roof of a Subaru Outback. Particularly if it was raining out.

    If criminals can come to this country Illegally then have parades and demand "Rights" and the kooks slobber all over them and treat them as though they were their personal pets and then these same batty looney screwballs want to Tax My Car simply because these bastards don't like My Car they can go and pound sand up their socialist son of a b!tching a$ses.

    One of their heros John Fonda Kerry owns THREE Suv's, start with him if they want to force their Socialist Liberal Bullsh!t on the people, kick Al Boob Gore out of his Oil Burning Mansion and make him live in a three bedroom ranch house, the American people are FREE to buy and drive the vehicle of their choice, make the drunk Uncle Teddy get rid of his gas guzzling motor boats, make that stuttering junkie Bobby Kennedy Jr get rid of his private Jets, make Auntie Pelosi use the train.

    I now own two SUV's I think I will buy another one and just park it in my yard and let it run all day.

    I can understand having an SUV in rural and suburban areas, where people are dependent on cars for all of their errands, but in cities, SUV's are mostly a waste. They're difficult to pass when doubleparked on narrow streets, they sometimes take extra parking space, you can't see what's behind them, but most importantly they do more harm to environment than many other cars. I think an increased excise tax on them is a good idea, though double sounds a bit high.

    And I like all the other things in the article that Brookline has done, such as banning leaf blowers. I wish Cambridge would do that.

    By the way, Harry, I saw something I never saw before: a funny right-wing bumpersticker. It said "Footprint of a chicken," and next to the text was an image of a peace sign.

    Patters, God Bless you, leaf blowing machines, I can't stand them, I hate their guts.
    Anybody that has a back yard knows that God put those leaves there in the first place and if you wait awhile God will remove them with his nice machine (wind).

    I once had a neighbor when I lived in Burlington Ma, he used to sit in his picture window holding a rake waiting for the first leaf to fall then he would go racing out of his house and attack the leaf, when the leaf was gone he would just stand there looking at his yard.

    One day while I was drinking some wine I had an idea, it took me about three weeks to complete this feat of engineering, the people at MIT (I used to steal their bikes when I was a kid, I will have to answer to God for that) those people would have marveled at this.

    The first week I sat and studied the wind, my wife would say, "you idiot what do you do when you sit out there staring into space", I replied, "Im watching the wind" she knew better than to keep prying.

    Then on the second week I said to this Leaf Freak with his rake, "don't you think a small white fence would look good in that small space between our houses" he said, "Jesus yeah, it would" I then said, "if you will pay for half of the lumber I will pay to have it put up" :singing:

    I now controlled the wind, 90% of the time the wind came in from the south, I deflected the wind, now the wind hit the fence bounced off and circled to the east it then picked up all of my leaves and dumped them into sh!t heads yard, I spent many happy days laughing my a$s off watching this moron rake all the leaves up that were in my yard, he didn't drink or sing or talk dirty so I never hung around with him, I conned the sap into paying for half the fence, I was going to put one up anyway.

    If you wait long enough those leaves will blow away, there is no need for those rotten noisy leaf blowers, "Ban Them"

    That was pretty brilliant Harry. Bet that same sort of reasoning helped you when driving a truck on a very windy day.

    I never liked perfect lawns and never minded dead leaves. When I was a kid (after leaving the Bronx), the house I lived in had beautiful gardens, but the lawn had lots of crabgrass and dandelions. Why anyone would replace a dandelion with a piece of sod is beyond me.

    Crab Grass and dandelions are my favorites, they are tough and green and while your neighbor is out there throwing white stuff all over his yard and trimming grass with his scissors you can sit around in your shorts singing, drinking beer and eating chicken wings, every once in awhile yell over to him and say "hey your grass looks great" :rocker:

    That's the way to do it, and then wait until he gets grub worms and has to rip the whole thing up.

    My neighbor is one of those obsessive-compulsives with the leaf blower. He blows all his leafs into neat piles. Then he blows the sidewalk clear of every particle that is not concrete. THEN...he goes into the STREET and blows the street clear into the stormdrains. This takes hours about twice a week. I sweartagawd, I caught him once in late fall aiming his gas-powered phallic blower into a tree that refused to give up its last leaves. I had a talk with him this spring and told him he needs to back off with the noise or I'll ring his friggin neck. I also told him he might want to seek help to resolve his Freudian issues.

    They become obsessed with them, get a tape recorder and tape the noise then call him up at 3:30 AM and just play it back to him when he answers the phone.

    If I switched to a 4 stroke engine with a muffler, catalytic converter and spiffy new MA inspection sticker, would it be ok to use a leaf blower? I really don't like leaves lying all over the place. Especially when it rains and people stomp a near permanent leaf stain into the sidewalk. There has to be some common ground here.

    Who has time for rakes? What about an air compressor? Mine's electric and is only a little louder than a leaf blower when the motor cuts in. I have a long enough hose...

    Now that I think of it I wouldn't need to track down 2 stroke oil anymore either:confused:

    Edit: I sure as he11 ain't giving up my Lawnboy!!

    I think people are certifiable loons. SUV's are now evil. Sure, a RAV4, or a Lexus RX330 Hybrid is evil dammit! So much more evil than say a Mercedez S500? How about an antique car like an '86 Jaguar, or any old beater from the 70's or 80's? Pick-up trucks? What amazes me about people is their simplistic stupidity. A car is bad for the environment because....... it's big? What maroons! This is classic retard legislation. Of course, since 30-40% of the public consists of retards, it has a wonderful chance of passing.

    Spare yourself the wrath of the enviro-police, and the other loons, and invest in one of these.

    Oh, and don't forget to keep it to one square for each bathroom visit. If you feel you need more, those leaves could come in handy. :D
