    Green up day!

    So, yesterday, aside from being Star Wars day (May the fourth be with you) it was Green Up Day, at least locally. Green Up Day is when people, and by people, I mean families and individuals, collect trash from the sides of the roads, put the trash in specific green plastic trash bags, and leave them full on the sides of the roads for the state to pick up.
    My question is, do any of you all have this same sort of town/county/state greening up thingie? Seems like a good idea to me. Just askin'

    I have never even heard of it, but it is very cool. The only people I see picking up trash on the sides of the road here are inmates with a big white van and a sherrif. That is a whole other topic of discussion though. But I like the idea in your OP. Thanks for sharing that. We need more things like what you mentioned here. Not just on green day but year round.

    I propose we round up all 40 million illegal aliens in the country. Then we ship them off to the Canadian border. Each gets a trash bag. Line them up from coast to coast. let them walk south. As they reach oceans let them turn inward, still moving south. When they reach the Mexican border tell them, in a language they understand, "Good job".

    Boot them and the trash they collected into Mexico.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    It really is a great thing, especially when you hear a preschool age child whining to their parents that they can't pick up trash year round...oh, wait, orange suited inmates on the side of the highway? Oops... LOL

    I say we put them all on the borders of Alabama, and when they get to your house, they all shout, "Feliz Cinco de Mayo, gringo!"

    They can do that as they pick up whatever trash there is in Alabama enroute to the Mexican border.
