Unsolicited Advice: Put Your Damn Shopping
Cart Back

Welcome to Unsolicited Advice, the weekly column in which I give salient advice to people who haven’t asked for it and don’t even know who I am. This week I’m aiming my unsolicited words at those of you who were born in barns and then raised by wild wolves in the far, uninhabited reaches of the Appalachians before you were reintroduced to civilized society. You know who you are. You’re the people who refuse to take your shopping carts back to the cart corral.


*Outline version can be accessed at

I have a lower back injury which allows me to park in the handicapped spots. The cross hatches, which allow access for specialized wheelchair vans, are constantly filled with discarded carts, rendering them useless. Put your danged carts back, people!!

One of my pleasant memories involves a healthy young man and his family in the Walmart parking lot. He unloaded his cart and moved it directly behind my car which was parked next to his. As he was getting in his car, I moved it directly behind his. He backed into it and got out of his car with a confused and angry look. I think they call it Karma.

Why don't they put some of those corrals near the handicapped spaces. It's a hike from the handicapped spaces to where you can put a cart. I can't hike.

I do take my cart back to the corral but also wish they would put a corral closer to the spaces closer to the store. It is a long walk back a lot of the time and people usually park close so they don’t have to walk a long way. But agree—if you leave your cart,don’t leave it by the handicapped space!

While we're at it - don't go through the express lane (20 items maximum) with a half-full shopping cart. Yesterday at Wally World I was behind not one, but TWO customers committing this infraction.

If I have an injury that affects my ability to walk for a day or a few weeks, why can't I park in handicap parking? I'm just asking to make a point. Also, why are pickup parking spaces closest to the store? Like handicap parking, they are almost always empty. Nobody get angry, this is just my world I'm writing about.

I used to work at a golf course and we naturally set aside handicapped parking spaces, primarily for patrons of the dining room. There were many seniors at the club who had very close and friendly ties to their physicians and they managed to obtain the necessary credentials for a handicapped tag or license plates. The senior golfers would actually brag about it and would often be seen pulling into the handicapped spots, pulling their pull carts out of the the trunk and proceeding to walk eighteen holes of golf.

As a native of my beloved Appalachia, I must take offense! We are exceptionally responsible (haven't you ever seen The Waltons)???? I never leave my cart and, in fact, carry other carts when I return mine. Pick on the blue state-er, entitlement types :). Also, as someone with a close family member confined to a wheelchair for 43 years, I get rabid about anyone other than mobility- or blind-impaired people in handicapped slots; nor should you park there if your passenger is impaired but YOU are the one going into the store. It's simple courtesy but more--it keeps someone from unloading, assembling, getting into and then rolling their wheelchair from a distant spot just to grocery shop. I helped my brother do it countless times--sometimes in the rain--because the handicapped slots were full. Many had no tag or had engines idling. Other than that, I agree with the article!!

In Free Appalachia when we notice you're done unloading, we ask if you're done with the cart and take it along to the store. You are usually amazed, delighted, or both.

When entering the store you can also take a cart from the corral or a stray one, and use it. That will be 1 less cart someone has to push up to the store.

Failure to take shopping carts back to the cart corral is nothing compared to taking shopping carts off the premises and not return them. Typically, shopping carts can cost anywhere from $90 to as much as $200 per cart. For example, Florida Statute 506.513 reads: "Illegal use of shopping carts and laundry carts.—It is a violation of ss. 506.501-506.519: (1) To remove any shopping cart or laundry cart from the premises or parking area of a retail establishment with intent to deprive temporarily or permanently the owner of such cart, or the retailer, of possession of the cart. (2) To remove a shopping cart or laundry cart, without written authorization, from its owner or from the premises or parking area of any retail establishment. (3) To remove, obliterate, or alter any serial number or sign affixed to a shopping cart or laundry cart." Many local governments refuse to enforce this Statute and assert that this Statute bars local governments from enacting any similar shopping cart ordinance. Therefore shopping carts are removed from the premises and many are thrown into lakes. Every few years local government employees remove two or three 5-ton truckloads of carts from lakes. Some food stores have installed expensive underground electric fences that freeze the cart's wheels when they go outside the fence.

Another data point of the national Ferguson affect. Does anybody deny there is an uptick in this behavior in their town? People spent a year and a half watching all forms of illegal behavior. Anything less than violent crime against another citizen is now ignored by most police departments. Americans got the message. The Democrats achieved the total destruction of the American social fabric. 1-0 Democrats.

I use a handicapped spot. Personally, I don't like the people who roll carts into any empty spot. Then it's hard to back out with a van. Mothers with kids are busy texting and never stop for vehicles backing out-of any spot. Some of the ignorant lot actually work at the super market. The guys who work at Wally World block handicapped places with carts and block the driveways with multiple carts. Too bad if you have to wait.

Pandemic driving gun, ammo sales, police and
firearm instructors being left high and dry

Posted by ladydawgfan 8/2/2021 8:57:30 PM Post Reply
Steadily increasing gun sales across the country as the COVID-19 pandemic lingered and then reignited in recent weeks amid the spread of the new Delta variant continue to cause sustained shortages of ammunition, which is impacting new gun owners, law enforcement agencies, and firearms instructors. Gun sales, especially for first-time buyers, soared as the pandemic stretched for months last year but also as riots and criminal violence rose dramatically as well, all of which placed strains on U.S. ammunition makers who struggled to keep up. Sales appeared to surge again after Joe Biden won the presidency and gun-control-pushing Democrats took over Congress, putting ammo makers even further behind.

During a congressional hearing on voting rights, U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) got a Texas Democrat to acknowledge that adults need a government-issued photo ID to operate in day-to-day life. State Rep. Senfronia Thompson is one of a large group of Texas Democrats who fled to Washington, D.C., on private jets, thereby creating an absence of a procedurally necessary quorum in the lower chamber, to prevent the GOP-majority legislature from passing an election reform measure. The bill has already passed the Texas senate. Under Mace’s rapid fire questioning — which was necessitated because of the five-minute limitation under prevailing House Oversight Committee rules —

Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors oversees the election activities for the county. What they allowed to happen in the primaries in the County is shocking.

This appears to be blatant violations of an individual’s privacy and voter protection standards. Compliance has become a HUGE issue for the Maricopa crowd. How could this type of poor oversight and implementation impact the 2020 general election? If simple standards are not met, what else could have occurred?

It’s an oft-quoted saying: “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts.” A fact is something done, an action performed or an event or circumstance that actually occurred. Essentially, facts are indisputable truths about people, places and events. The one seminal event that continues to fester like a boil on the American psyche is this past Nov. 3, 2020, presidential election. Why does it continue to fester? It festers because people of all stripes and backgrounds believe there were elements of election fraud, misrepresentations of the truth, dishonesty due to lawfare and, in certain cases, severe obstruction by politicians at all levels of government.
Stick a Fork in Liz Cheney—She's Done 20 replies

Rep. Liz Cheney, recently dubbed a “Pelosi Republican” by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, has lost the support of her constituents and is on the fast track to losing her next election in 2022. According to polling data, a mere 23 percent of primary-voting Republicans plan to vote for her again—a whopping 77 percent plan to vote for someone else. Cheney’s image has been destroyed by her vote to impeach Trump earlier this year and her support for the partisan January 6 commission. President Trump wants to use his influence in the party to push out wobbly Republicans who didn’t support his Make America Great Again agenda.

One of the most obvious misconceptions about liberals today is that they personify tolerance. The Oxford English Dictionary defines tolerance as "the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with. A recent poll by the Survey Center on American Life at the American Enterprise Institute found that Democrats are twice as likely as Republicans to report ending a friendship over a political disagreement (20% versus 10%). Liberals are also "far more likely than conservatives are to say they are no longer friends with someone due to political differences" (28% versus 10%).

It is always amazing to observe how the Biden administration and Democrats ignore the preferences of the American people in deference to their own political ambitions. It is also interesting to note that they insist Biden won fair and square but they are also clinging to election law exceptions ostensibly put in place due to the pandemic — and presenting them as the norm for the future. Even though no one is really buying their “Jim Crow 2.0” narrative, they continue to charge ahead. On Wednesday, the Biden Department of Justice (DOJ) sent a guidance document warning states about the election security laws under consideration or already signed into law.

On her second attempt at 125kg, she was able to get the weight up and pumped her fist after in satisfaction, however judges ruled it a “no lift.” She returned quickly for another attempt at 125kg only to fail to stand up with the weight above her head. Hubbard was the only one of the 13 finalists to not complete at least one lift.
