Hey Buddy, Is That Your Reddi Wip? Break Out Some ID!

 

Ladies of New York, if you’re busy preparing your grand meal this Thanksgiving and realize that you forgot to buy Reddi Wip, for Heaven’s sake, don’t send your teenager to the local store to pick it up.  They’ll be attempting to break the law.

Yup, the next time you buy whipped cream (in a can) in New York, you may be asked for your ID.  According to the Democrat who wrote the bill, teenagers were purchasing the product to get high.  As of today, no other states have passed the measure but look for California to follow suit.

What next?  Aerosol deodorants?  Aerosol Pledge?  Granted, some teenagers are using it to get a cheap high.  However, how much more can we do to protect some of them from their stupidity?

Fentanyl, which has flowed across our border and onto our streets, has killed thousands.  Yet, our state and local governments persist in idiocy such as this.

No sense in wondering when Big Brother will arrive. He’s been here for quite some time and he’s even dumber than we thought he’d be.

    I had to present my drivers license to be scanned at the supermarket today, because my shopping basket contained a lighter. Not tobacco or smokes. A little lighter. I am, by the way, in my 70s. Some rules are too ridiculous to fathom.

    I see the creation of a black market in Reddi Whip for the HS aged crowd.

    At least whipped cream is actually “food.”  WTAF is it with people who huff SPRAY PAINT?  They end up with paint around their mouth, what do they think their LUNGS look like?

    It’s easier to put an 8 year old on hormone blockers in NY than to buy a can of whipped cream? Sounds about right.

    On the other hand, getting food in your lungs isn’t a good thing either.

    I’d like to state for the record that not only was I raised Southern Baptist, but my father was a Southern Baptist pastor. I don’t know a single blue haired church lady in rural West Tennessee that wouldn’t shake her head at this.

    This is why it is so important to fund programs to provide Redi Wip addicts the much safer nitrous oxide they need.

    Pledge is also a dessert topping.  Mm, lemony!

    I live in Northern NJ, so does this mean we are going to have a bunch of young hooligans crossing the border to take advantage of our lax whipped cream laws?

    My son has a job at the local supermarket and they have to check ID for Gorilla Glue.

    Since Hochul has said that all Republicans are not real New Yorkers, that means we don’t have to follow New York laws, right?

    I notice stores near me checking everyone’s ID rather than just the people who look younger. So, if I buy a bottle of wine at the supermarket, I have to show my driver’s license. My daughter tells me I look “youthful,” but at 57 that just means I could pass for a 45 year old. No one in their right mind would think I am under 21.

    It’s just CYA.

    Where we used to live an independent supermarket in town  hired a lot of teenagers as cashiers / check-out clerks. Teenagers are notoriously bad at estimating people’s ages, so the store had a policy of ID checks on everyone buying beer (New York, so we could buy wine or other liquor only at a dedicated liquor store). Universal ID checks removes all uncertainty or ambiguity. One day I found myself checking out behind an 85 year old friend who was getting carded for his beer. :)

    Some rules serve a good purpose. Others exist to condition compliance into the population. Take the TSA for example. Airports weren’t turned into massive security checkpoints for your safety. They were merely a testing ground for what the entire country will soon become.

    Well damn!  If universal ID with an age requirement is  good enough for Redi-Whip (or tobacco, driver’s license, beer, wine, firearms, sudafed, liquor, vape, etc.) then…

    Universal ID with age restriction ought to be necessary to VOTE or permanent organ removal for sexual confusion.
