Did you know that a proposed ruling from our wonderful government has told us that our children cannot work on our own farms? Seriously, no joke. There are 85 regulations written on this ruling, 85! Thankfully, we have some that are fighting for us in this uphill battle. The proposed ruling has now exempted the children who work on their own parent's farm. But, it isn't over yet! This is still up for commenting and it is not a done deal.
What is happening to America? Where did our freedom go? For the Department of Labor to even make a ruling that would tell parents that their kids can't work on their farm, that they can't trim hooves, ride a horse, work in the fields, use an electric screwdriver, help with hay baling, be with animals over six months of age, the list goes on and on, is a little to socialistic don't you think?
Watch this video below from Fox News. Then, watch Senator John Thune bring up some great points that we can all agree with! Thanks to him and Senator Jerry Moran for introducing a bill called Preserving America's Family Farm Act, which gives back our parental rights on our own farms.
It is time we put our feet firmly down on our land, put up a fight, and speak out against such unconstitutional acts from the government! Family farms are at risk. They are being shut down more than I care to hear about. Why? Because they didn't follow some silly regulation or because a new regulation came along making it impossible for the farm to survive!
Did you know that in New Zealand, they are pushing for a new law that states that people cannot grow their own vegetables, all in the name of safety? It's coming, folks. It's here, now. And if we don't take a stand and speak up, who will?
