Victory! (For Now): Obama Administration Withdraws Proposed Child Labor Laws for Farm Families

How much you want to bet that if Obama gets reelected, this issue is coming right back?:

Labor Dept. withdraws farm child labor rule after Daily Caller report goes viral
Daily Caller

Under pressure from farming advocates in rural communities, and following a report by The Daily Caller, the Obama administration withdrew a proposed rule Thursday that would have applied child labor laws to family farms.

Critics complained that the regulation would have drastically changed the extent to which children could work on farms owned by family members. The U.S. Department of Labor cited public outcry as the reason for withdrawing the rule.

“The decision to withdraw this rule — including provisions to define the ‘parental exemption’ — was made in response to thousands of comments expressing concerns about the effect of the proposed rules on small family-owned farms,” the Department said in a press release Thursday evening. “To be clear, this regulation will not be pursued for the duration of the Obama administration.”

Interesting verbiage…  To be clear, what they are really saying is that this WILL come up again after the election unless Obama and his fellow communist psychophants are booted out of the government.

The rule would have dramatically changed what types of chores children under the age of 16 could perform on and around American farms. It would have prohibited them from working with tobacco, operating almost all types of power-driven equipment and being employed to work with raw farm materials.

    I smell the UN.

    • I smell a ploy by the commies to increase the number of illegal aliens working on American farms…

        Send all your illegal’s to California where its not illegal to be illegal and they can collect their rightful share.

        Obama likes to eat dogs, illegal Mexicans like to chase them around the farm in pickup trucks trying to run them down in a midnite mexican game of death. Culture, culture, culture!

        • Chicken poodle soup, anyone?

          Hmm… After Obama is booted out of office, maybe he can save and/or create a few jobs for all those illegals he has let in by opening up a Taco Bo Restaurant, or something… Mmmm… Bo-rritos. Yummy…

        Washington, DC April 27, 2012 The Judicial Watch Blog

        DHS To Grant Illegal Aliens “Unlawful Presence Waivers”
        “In its quest to implement stealth amnesty, the Obama Administration is working behind the scenes to halt the deportation of certain illegal immigrants by granting them “unlawful presence waivers.”

        This appears to be part of the Obama Administration’s bigger plan to blow off Congress by using its executive powers to grant illegal immigrants backdoor amnesty. The plan has been in the works for years and in 2010 Texas’s largest newspaper published an exposé about a then-secret DHS initiative that systematically cancelled pending deportations. The remarkable program stunned the legal profession and baffled immigration attorneys who said the government bounced their clients’ deportation even when expulsion was virtually guaranteed.”

        Unfortunately Doc, you are 100% correct. When do we vote for a new president? This one has to go.

          Well I suppose our politicians want to live more like politicians south of the border where assignation is an intergal part of the process.

    To Barry and the dummy(s),
    We want our kids to grow up with a good work ethic. I know that this is something that you will never understand. I do not expect you to understand I realize that our culture is alien to you and your dummy. I have come to the realization that you know your limitations and seek to avoid future embarrassment. Put it this way, my sons will never look (or act) like your sons.

    Just as other elected dictators have done the sheeple will again be promised a Utopian paradise by the Charlatan in chief, as he stated he just needs four more years to complete the transformation to the era of ‘hope and change’. Sadly there are still too many Kool Aid drinkers out there, who give into the fear tactics and lies that if the other party wins they will loose all of their freebies provided by the welfare state. These fools fail to realize that a government that can give you ‘everything’ can just as easily take it all away.

    I am so disgusted by this traitorous sh*t sack and his lunatic comrades Pelosi being #1 f***ing insane b*tch from hell; it makes my head hurt, it gives me wrinkles, it makes me want to drink, it makes me want to hurt people. God please damn these people to hell on earth, hell isn’t good enough, I want to SEE it in action.

    Pelosi lying through her ludicrous teeth to try to repeal the 1st amendment
    same b*tch who said ‘we can’t know what’s in a bill until it passes’ (like Obama care, OH we don’t know what’s in it either, we aLL just have to wait until a bill passes THEN we find out what’s in it)
    had the gall and the nerve to talk about what the ‘founding fathers would have wanted’ while doing everything she can to destroy everything they actually stood for while building up everything they were against. The founding fathers didn’t want MUSLIMS f***ing up this country! They hated and were disgusted by them; and even pussycat presidents before Jefferson PAID the Caliphate a damned JIZYA bounty.
    The FBI spends millions investigating and arresting AMISH farmers for selling raw milk;
    administration does everything it can to destroy the small business owner; and THEN
    they try to pull this sh*t under ‘guise of safety’ of the ‘kids’??? HORSESH*T – and not only that, to say they wanted to eliminate the 4H accreditation and similar groups only to replace it with a 90 HOUR GOVERNMENT TRAINING COURSE? OH so they already had the course all fixed up, huh? 100 years of good works by 4H and they pull a government training course out of their ass?
    I’m sure the ‘brainwashing’ …er… training course is as idiotic as all the other retarded sh*t these stooges come up with.
    THEY HATE AMERICAN farmers because they are the heart and soul of this country and they know what’s really going on, they are not prone to the elitist faggot prissy liberal college douchebag brainwashing – they want to destroy their livelihoods so no one will no how to raise their own food and be dependent on the government for EVERYTHING.

    I despise him so f***ing much, it makes my skin burn !!!
