My neighborhood is so geriatric that I have to print out an article in a large font and hand carry it around the neighborhood. I wish I could just email them.

I want every one involved in making this decision extracted by the scruff of their necks and kicked to the curb.

You are easy. Our first thoughts were of rope and un-occupied lamp-posts. My neighbors were p!$$ed. Seriously angry.

Okay, thanks. Sorry to intrude into your inside joke. I was just curious.

God Bless.

Actually, I suspected it was a Farm Workers Union initiative.

Just for now. Just like the last time they “backed” off. Then they tried it again “toned down” somehow.

They are relentless and won’t ever stop.

In wars with the afghanis the brits found they had to wipe them out to stop them. It is that way with fanatics.

Yes, ultimately, they want to take over the farms.

The Amish would have been hit hard by this ruling.


Hit hard? It would have completely destroyed them.

Hell, we're suburban and most are geriatric. Between all of us we've barely got an acre under cultivation.

Folks are p!$$ed at the over-reach. And reacting.

And the barstids back off, so they can figure out how to get it done again.

It's like having a naughty puppy that you just have to keep smacking with a rolled-up newspaper until it finally gets the lesson.

We are getting there on the 2nd amendment. We just need to keep on pushing.

Like a nuclear warhead makes for a good illumination round.

Well they do. Higher the better, you can illuminate half a state, or even more. Side effects can be rather inconvenient though.

"“The Department of Labor backed off the rule in February. The department now said it will not pursue the regulation again during Pres. Barack Obama’s administration.” Code for they will ram it down farmers throats if obama is re-elected. It’s just a temporary backoff until they can slip it unnoticed into some other legislation."

Apparently Congress has already delegated authority to the Dept. of Labor to do whatever the hell it wants & that no new legislation would be needed.

Just a temporary setback for Obama.

He can't go into full blown Pol Pot mode *until* he's reelected and has more "flexibility". That's when he'll start relocating all evil conservatives to do farm labor and giving our houses to people who 'deserve them'. That's the Communist way.

However first he's got to get all those pesky guns from our hands. But he's "working under the radar" on that. Right Barry.

They are NOT backing down on this.
Just making the announcement.

Look for it to come back in another form.
They will do the same thing through obamacare or through the IRS.

They don’t quit.

They were taking too much heat here before the election. But it, like so many other things, has revealed their heart and soul.

Now, they will wait until after the election because if he is re-elected he’ll be, “much more flexable,” don’t you know? Just like he intends with the Russians, radcial Islam, and so many other anti-America causes, groups, and nations.

” One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.” - Ayn Rand, ‘Atlas Shrugged’ 1957 “

Those kids take jobs from Mexicans who are now leaving the country in record numbers with (loser) Obama’s votes!
You nailed it. That's the reason they wanted this rule, to protect a bedrock voting constituency of the dems... illegal Mexicans.

People were livid about this. I had friends who don’t talk politics posting articles about this on FB. It made no sense to them. It makes perfect sense to me though. Every move Obama makes weakens America.

This effort to make rural life miserably harassed, regulated and unprofitable has to do with “Agenda 21.”

If you have no studied that, please do. The UN has laid out “human free” zones in every Nation in the name of protecting the enviornment. The goal is to make everyone live in cities without cars and humans would not be permitted to enter or use the wildlife zones. They remove most of our nations land from human use.

Progressives in both parties are pushing that agenda and using safety, global warming and overpopulation bs as an excuse. Citizens outside the cities need to understand what is going on because the Feds are really sneaky in what they do.

The U.S. Department of Labor is withdrawing a rule that would have limited the sorts of work that children can do on farms, for now. After the election a more flexible position will be taken.

Was this a “human rights” initiative or a “safety” initiative?

It was probably a "gay men don't like farming" initiative.
