Just answer the question. Will the children of farm owners, according to the DOL rules that everyone's worried about, be allowed to, or not to, participate in whatever farm chores their parents charge them with?

The children are not subject to the damned legislation and the only way they could ever become subject to it is by confused people believing they as parents are subject to the legislation, and the best and surest way to confuse these people is by asking the disingenuous questions you're asking. Guardian of truth, my eye!

Why are you working so hard at convincing farmers they should accept this legislation as valid?

The Labor Department withdrew a proposed rule Thursday that would have limited the work that children can perform on farms.

The proposal drew heavy criticism from rural-state lawmakers and agricultural leaders, who cast the rule as government overreach that would erode the traditional American family. Others in Congress supported the rule, and unions argued it was needed to make farm work safer for young adults.

In nixing the proposal, the Labor Department cited the need to protect "the rural way of life."

Obama administration scraps child labor restrictions for farms




Warning:

Do Not re-elect Obama --- He will wait and pass these things next year !!!



believe this ?

"The Obama administration is firmly committed to promoting family farmers and respecting the rural way of life, especially the role that parents and other family members play in passing those traditions down through the generations," the Labor Department said in a statement announcing the withdrawal of the rule.

"The Obama administration is also deeply committed to listening and responding to what Americans across the country have to say about proposed rules and regulations."

Well good. That settles that and what's left to argue with.

So, JPZ, I suppose you'll have to find someone else to hurl insults at. I have a feeling that won't be hard for you to do. lol

Actually you all should continue the discussion.

The issue will show up again eventually.

Because this is more than likely part of the Agenda 21 coup d'état plot.
