Most of you have heard how the Department of Labor is proposing a regulation that will prevent kids who grow up on farms from basically doing all things my cousins and I did working on a farm. These masterminds in Washington D.C. believe that somehow a child doing chores on a family farm equates to a violation of child labor laws. This wonderful family farm tradition is now being demonized by an unfeeling bureaucratic system that cares more about how something is done than what is actually getting done. We’re supposed to ignore the fact that this is how family farms have operated in America since before our independence. Now some D.C. bureaucrat is saying we’ve been wrong all along and that these children should not be subjected to these working conditions. They want to crack down on these sweatshops. Not only does this open another door for the government to replace the parent, but it also takes away the opportunity for our young people to learn a valuable skill at a very young age. Can someone please tell me where in the constitution it authorizes some government official the power to usurp the rights of the parent? Once again there is no provision in the constitution that permits this because the constitution is a document designed to RESTRAIN the federal government from doing exactly this.
Pathetic! John lays out what this is about
This is what happens in an America when the constitution is ignored by unelected bureaucrats who could care less about our rights. It turns our traditions and history as a nation on its head and forces us to live in an America that’s upside down. It was in 2008 when Michelle Obama said we would need to change our traditions and history. Welcome to Obama’s America. This is just another attempt to fundamentally change who we are as a people and we must stop it. The more we allow these elected or unelected bureaucrats to regulate every aspect of our lives the more we lose as a people and as a nation. The more we become enslaved.
