Liberals should not be allowed to shop at the same stores where normal people shop. I don’t care if it’s in England or the USA.

store layouts were creating problems for the parents of young children

No, the problem is parents not being parents. Mine never screamed and cried for a candy bar at the check out. They knew better.

Will they create a special lane for “white guilt”?

If I was a store owner in the UK, I’d have Pork Rinds at the store entrance and on the end of every isle.

I had the biggest laugh of the day. I went to the local supermarket and was just trucking down the Kosher isle when I saw three shelves of Catholic motive candles. You know the kind where Mother Mary is holding the Christ child and Yashua on the cross. Right in the middle of the Kosher isle, in the middle of Kosher products. I was dumbfounded me being Jewish and all. I called the manager over and showed him and his reaction was “So? Are you offended?” I just shook my head and left.

Instead of candies and mints, politically-correct check out lanes will now have alfalfa spouts and tofu along with essentials like condoms, hypodermic needles and RU-486 pills. Of course, you’ll need to bring your bags to get these out of the store.

No...poor parenting skills create the “problem”.

Government can help by allowing parents to impose a little discipline in their children’s lives.

To minimize the need for follow up posts.....

I DIDN’T SAY BEATINGS!!!!!

Oh, yipee.

Once you're done with this, nanny government, there's a whole lot of other crap that my neighbors do that I don't like that I'd like you to stop, too.

My kids grew up hearing the words — “The answer is No!”, and “Tough!” alot. They also got love and guidance. They grew up to be great people and are great parents. Candy at the counter was never a problem. Occasionally stopping by the bubble machine, or those ones with a toy, was usually my idea, so they got their fun stuff— especially if they had been good.

It’s quicker to shop without kids, that being said if we are in the checkout lane my kids don’t even ask for candy unless they know ahead of time, for whatever reason, they’ve been told they can get a treat. They know this because they were raised that way. Also, we’ve just never been a family that has a lot of gum around, so if I pick up some mints for my purse, I’ll let them get a pack of sugar free gum. They think of it as a treat and it makes them completely forget about all of the other candy.

My kids went through their entire childhood without once having so much as a piece of gum purchased for them at the supermarket check-out. They only asked once or twice, then they learned.

I see other harried parents at the supermarket who have no control over their whining children who spend the entire time tugging at their parents and demanding this or that. I understand those are liberals. However, I sometimes wish their children could be mine for just 15 minutes.

They have to get rid of all of them?

Here most stores have parent-friendly lane to try to cut down on hassles kids might cause.

Of course, I’d like them to stop selling those disgusting low-class magazines at the counter. Today the women’s magazines are as bad as Playboy. Kids who can read get an eyeful.
