Some legal eagle, help me out here.
Is there a constitutional issue?
What gives the Feds the right to tell parents on farms that their children can’t help out?
The children are not employees, in the workforce.
Same thing if you have your child help you do things on a non-farm. They aren’t an employee of yours.
Somebody help with this.
I haven’t heard it discussed from a legal perspective.
I hate it when the writer gives up and says, “those days are over”.
The days of children helping on the farm are over, because of Obama??
Come on people, don’t just role over and die!!
What you don't understand is that the Leftists have made it all or nothing. They are only ever doing one single thing, and then applying it to everything. So, if you fight one thing, and you win, then the entire edifice come tumbling down. You might think this is good - get all the dirt in one shot. And from that perspective, it is good. But the flip side is that there as so many varied vested interests hanging onto their piece of that one pie, that to protect themselves, they block the whole thing.
I'm talking about the corporatization of the person. It's one thing to have a limited incorporation of a business of many people, for financial reasons. But FedGov has taken the position that it creates the corporation, and that the corporation is therefore owned by it, and that everyone in the corporation is owned by it, and finally, that individual people can be "acting in their corporate capacity" (that's the meaning of the legal word "individual") and as such, are owned by FedGov.
Some people have pointed out that such definitions of incorporation makes literally everyone slaves of FedGov, under the guise of "acting in their corporate capacitites." And what's more, FedGov has decided that it doesn't have to prove anyone is actually a corporation - it has allowed itself to presume it against people. And what's more, to get rid of that presumption, you have to go to a FedGov "court" that sits in the presumption that the corporate presumption is correct.
Can it be fought? Yes. People could educate themselves and challenge this bogus legal presumption that steal life itself and win under common law. But for that to happen, two things would have to happen: 1) People would have to educate themselves as to what the real problem is; and 2) People would have to be willing to get rid of the entire corporate structure as it stands today, and collapse the megacorporate enablement and go back to a voluntarily interlocked small business culture of personal responsibility.
Still sounds good? Well, most of the graduates of what pass for universities happen to word for magacorporations in one form or another. We're talking tens of millions of people. And worse, they can't even imagine another way of life, as they have conflated modern conveniences with maegacorporations and personal incorporation. So they will fight such a change tooth and nail, as liberals, Leftists and RINOs. Because the same personal incorporation they live under, is what Obama wants to apply to children of farm families - the same status. And all those millions of crawling worms literally - literally - think that the problem with the world, is that everyone in the world has not yet been personally incorporated by the State like they are.
Nobody "gives" them that "right". They just take it.
All political power flows out of the barrel of a gun.
