Skip to comments.Obama’s Outrageous DOL Rules Will Restrict Minors From Working on Family Farms – Killing Farm Life
Posted on 03/21/2012 9:40:19 PM PDT by george76
Barack Obama is committed to killing off the family farm an American tradition.
For generations children and adults have worked together on the family farm. Those days are over.
Senators John Thune (R-S.D.) and Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today introduced the Preserving Americas Family Farm Act, to prevent the Department of Labor (DOL) from enacting its controversial proposed restrictions that would ban children from working on family farms.
Senator Thune spoke out against the Obama Administrations proposed labor rules for youth who work on farms and ranches on the Senate floor.
The Obama Administrations rules are so strict they would restrict minors from handling most animals and even from using battery-powered screwdrivers.

And the jackboots literally kick in and destroy anything not sanctioned by the Monsanto police state (raw milk, etc.).
And, they’re working on poisoning the air, soil, and water as fast as they can, for “soft kill” and to restrict the peasants from using non-GMO seeds.
You forgot a third way to stop Obama’s reelection: “conservatives coming out in droves to vote *against Obama* by holding their noses and casting a vote for the Republican ticket.”
Indon’t like Romney, but I don’t want Obama to pack the courts.
Getting the ‘peasants’ off the farm and into factory work was the goal of Stalin, Lenin, Mao... to build for the nation, the state, the country and war machine.
It is odd that I am not seeing that push as yet from the liberal left. At some point the 47% who don’t contribute will be rounded up and forced to contribute. The question though will be ...’to what?’
You see in the case of 0bama and not very much unlike Stalin, he is after the elimination of classes of people. In other countries and in history this often takes the form of genocide and is easily seen and understood as such. But in America, it is the elimination of a class of people of diverse histories.
Between this ruling and the Food Protection and Safety Act we see the laws for collectivization bringing brought to bear on the small farmer. These rules give no care to whether the farmer is using chemicals or is organic, it is to end the independent farmer. Both an old class and with the advent of the organic farmer the new class of farmer.
“...will the feds be sending out spies with binoculars to smoke out underage farm workers?...”
Yes. They’re called ‘drones’, eyes in the sky, and those machines see everything.
I am not voting for Romney.
Look for outright civil diobedence.
What are we supposed to do? The powerlessness is overwhelming.
Those who want him re-elected are:1. The Democrat Party. 2. The Republican Party. 3. the main stream media. 4. America’s enemies. 5.The One World Globalists.
6. And a lot of Freepers so that the Republicans are “taught a lesson.”
I am not voting for Romney.
Then don’t complain when obama is re-elected.
First of all, why would legislation be needed to stop a “president” from making rules into laws?
Second, this is all part of Agenda 21. The government takes over the farms when the farmers break the “rules”. I believe all the big corporations that own “farms” are fronts for the government. Where’s my tinfoil!
That dog don’t hunt for the Amish.
- I recall growing up in South Florida it was well known that county, state, or federal government agents were not welcome onto any private land of farmers and/or ranchers...
- Swamps, everglades, dense brushlands...
- Gators, Florida Cougars, Rattlers, Water Moccasins, Coral Snakes...
You could just disappear and never be found -
If you doubt this - simply inquire of an old timer down there...
Another place to respect is in the Western North Carolina mountains -
Sheriff’s Deputies will not go near some private property there -
I will not say where -
If you are curious -
Go try your luck -
It is very easy to get lost in the Smokies -
I have actually been expecting something of this sort for a long time. I told people years ago that anyone who ALLOWED his children to do the sort of things my father EXPECTED my older brother and me to do would have his children taken away on grounds of reckless endangerment. The way that children used to be brought up with no one thinking there was anything the least bit unusual about it would land parents in prison now. Strangely enough I am very glad to have been brought up that way, it taught me a lot of things I would never have learned otherwise.
