Who's leaves are they??

Well it is fall yet again and so the leaves are falling. So what do we do with all those leaves? Now maybe before I go down this road I should say I may “ruffle” some feathers here so hold on to your seats. The city has this “great” program of letting people to put there leaves out into the street and they come by and scope them all up and you don’t have to worry any longer. But now that seems just a lot like what liberals would want to have government take care of their problems for them. We need to show personal responsibility and take care of those leaves ourselves. We all need the exercise since it won’t be long the snow will be blowing and we won’t able to be out getting any. So now this is short and sweet put we need to take personal responsibility. We need to take care of them ourselves, and not expect someone else to do it for us. What do you all think? If we were to drop this program which they should, we could save a fair amount of scarce dollars the city needs.

Whose leaves are they? My neighbor's. They blow over into my yard. *LOL*

I understand what Ray is saying. It's another government program to address a housekeeping issue.
In my childhood, we burned the leaves. Yes, we had burning barrels. Smoke in the Autumn was as common as the falling leaves. We didn't die and no one collapsed during school.

Well Tom that may be the case for sure but if we do unto others as we would have them do unto us we need to rake up those leaves.
