The Next Click It or Ticket?

Posted in category Safety Nazis

There was a time when we thought that one could be safe while shopping at Safeway. Americans, in their ceaseless search of “safety,” thanks to government propaganda and policy, and safety nazi fear mongering from the media and the masses, have come up with yet another way to spend money they don’t have on safety they don’t need. Here is The Wrap Strap, a shopping cart safety strap – just in case a high-speed cart collision might cause the little one to be launched from the cart and sent like a projectile through the produce section at Kroger, head first into a patch of barbed artichoke hearts.

    I wonder how many stars the NTSB awarded to that thing? Or does the FDA have jurisdiction because they are in fact in the supermarket…? Has DHS setup VIPR checkpoints in aisle 6?

    They also need straps on the front of the cart for the little ones who like to stand on the front metal bar.

    Looks to me like the contraption meant to keep the kid safe would still allow kiddie to lean over and suck on the handle bar of the cart. Nothing gets my ire as much as modern moron moms who put their kids into these carts, and then ignore the kid while he/she sucks or licks the handbar which probably holds a zillion germs or worse. You think uncle sam is concerned about this?…not a chance, but don’t expect today’s young moms to be concerned…they have yet to grow up themselves. My heart goes out to today’s youngsters who have pretend-to-play-house parents..and half of them are single moms, a truly sad group of girls who haven’t a mommy bone in their bodies. Methinks a better idea for the ‘wrap strap’ would be between the thighs of females who have no business bearing babies…far too many today are narcissitic and totally incapable of caring for another human,let alone a child. Only mature adults need apply for that job. No kid needs a mom playing doll house.

    Don’t forget the helmet, hand sanitizer and flu shot on the way out!

    It’s probably a silly thought, but I use the included seat belts to fold the child seat up and hold it out of the way. I started doing this the same day I stopped to wonder how many dozens of little kids had pooped on that spot where my produce was now sitting over the shopping cart’s lifetime.

    It gets even better Karen.  Now 8 year olds in California must have booster seats until they reach 4′ 9″ in height.  This really is true :-P

    I’m waiting for time a law is passed forcing my dog to wear a helmet in my car.
