Good point and you are so effin right. I hate this shite hole.
A ban on leaf blowers would go a long way toward solving our illegal immigration problem.
I love mine for dusting...open the windows, fire that puppy up, and voila!! No more dust lol
The old One Kidpower Grass Slasher! Has the added advantage of fighting the "obesity epidemic": mandate them...it's for the CHEEEL-drin!
Then, make them finish the job with these:
Yep. My dad had all those things. Kidpower indeed!
Maybe in her honor there should be a weekly allotted time free citizens have permission from government to do their yard work. A fine of course if you don't and a fine if you do yard work requiring gas or electric power on any other day. Bug Zappers yea ban them also and those horrid smelling mosquito torches as well. All of this posted in extreme sarcasm of course.
I'm glad I live where I do. I can mow when I wish, or never mow at all and no one cares, shoot my firearms when I wish, plus much more, just as do my neighbors also do living nearly a quarter mile away. We all get along just fine. :>}
As for the womans complaints? There are several ways to make your home a lot more insulated to outside noises. I have an Ondura roofing on my home and it knocks out most outside noises. I live right over a medivac flight path for helicopters usually flying fairly low. I barely hear them now and only when directly overhead.
The noisiest,most annoying device around.
I’ve seen guys spend up to an hour just blowing stuff around that they could have swept or raked in 15 minutes.
Leaves fall in the fall,true,but the darned things are used to cleanup grass cuttings and just plain dirt that collects on sidewalks.
They are also used for the spring cleanup here in MA.
They seem to have a hypnotizing effect on the users. They just stand there and blow things around.
Leaf blowers are a three season pain in the butt.
Will you adopt me?
I've lived in a rural area most of my childhood and adult life. I have about 30 acres and I'm in the middle of it. I'm up at the end of a dead end road going up a ridge. In the spring summer and fall my home can't be seen from the road nor will it even show up on ariel photo anytime :>}
These idiots, the enviro’s, want no noise and no power (energy use of any form) yet they are the first and loudest to scream and yell to get their power turned back on immediately during an outage. I said they want no power, meaning no form of energy should be used, and they won’t be happy until we are all living without power, and that is pretty much what they profess. BUT let them go without it for one day, and they scream bloody murder.
Blowers are used to clean off grass from driveways and sidewalks after mowing too, so I suppose once a week they might be used, fools like this stalinist have to stick their nose in everyones business while saying she doesn’t want to do that, BUT.......
They can have my leaf blower when they pry it from my cold, dead fingers.....
