His callow malevolence knows no bounds. We’re going to continue pushing back so hard on this fool it’s gonna push him right out of the White House.

Feds withdraw controversial child farm labor proposal

The U.S. Department of Labor has withdrawn a controversial proposal that would placed more stringent rules on minors’ work on farms.

“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 Labor Department said in a written statement. “To be clear, this regulation will not be pursued for the duration of the Obama administration.”

The proposed rules would have barred children under the age of 16 from operating tractors or heavy farm equipment on non-family farms. They would not have applied to children working on their own family farms.

Sen. Chuck Grassley released a statement Thursday regarding the decision to scrap the proposal.

“It’s good the Labor Department rethought the ridiculous regulations it was going to stick on farmers and their families,” he said. “It would have been devastating to farm families across the country. Much of rural America was built on families helping families, neighbors helping neighbors. To even propose such regulations defies common sense, and shows a real lack of understanding as to how the family farm works. I’m glad the Obama administration came to its senses.”

Federal officials had said the rules were needed because of how dangerous farm work is.

You know what else is even more dangerous for kids? Some freakish Chicago lawyer spending all their money for 100 years into the future while making sure there are no jobs for them if they ever graduate from college which they may never be able to afford in a world that grows more dangerous by the day because the President of the United States sympathizes with and funds our enemies. That’s what.

    I was raised on a farm. I spent summers hauling hay (the inventor of the large, round hay bail and tractor-mounted stabber deserves a holiday!), my winters feeding cattle, I gathered eggs from chickens, my mother milked cows and I churned the cream into butter.

    I learned the benefits of work and responsibility.

    Obummer doesn’t know what those words mean.

    “I’m glad the Obama administration came to its senses.” Grassley
    No, They did not come to thier senses, the push back was strong. Watch carefully, the DB and his administration will find another way in different words to accomplish this idiocy.
