Obama’s Attacks on the Family Farm Come Straight From Marxist Handbook …Update: DOL Drops Parts of Regulations Banning Kids From Working On Family Farms

Barack Obama is attacking the family farm – an American tradition.
The administration’s Department of Labor implemented new regulations to restrict children from working on the family farm. This is despite the fact that farm accidents and injuries have decreased over the past several years.

For generations children and adults have worked together on the family farm.
Those days are over.

Senators John Thune (R-S.D.) and Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) introduced the Preserving America’s Family Farm Act, to prevent the Department of Labor (DOL) from enacting its controversial proposed restrictions that would ban children from working on family farms.

Recently, Senator John Thune spoke out against the Obama Administration’s proposed labor rules for youth who work on farms and ranches on the Senate floor.

So why would Barack Obama attack farmers?
Attacking family farms is nothing new. It comes straight from the Marxist handbook.
Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh at Canada Free Press reported:

The Marxist-Leninist dogma said, “A small property generates capitalism day by day, minute by minute, spontaneous, and in mass proportions.” The small-time farmer feeding his family, with a little surplus, was seen as an individual member of the bourgeoisie, requiring squashing.

The commie’s strategy was to turn farmers against the richer farmers through class envy and class warfare and it worked quite well…

…Collectivization was completed in 1962 with medal awarding ceremonies. The chaotic and mismanaged agricultural system under communists experienced such a sustained crisis between 1948-1962, that the effects are still felt today, twenty-three years after the communists lost power.

Can this happen in America? Can we lose our land and property to someone else deemed more deserving by constant leftist propaganda? Can we lose our land to wilderness because environmentalists in control force us to move? Or is it already happening peacefully and silently while the population is being soothed with “hope and change”, lies and fabrications on a daily basis?

Americans are asleep, ignorant, mesmerized, doped up, or so corrupt that they no longer care what happens to their fellow citizens, their children’s future, the future of our country, so long as they have a cushy job, mindless television shows, sports, a pay check, perhaps bribes, comfortable homes, club memberships, vacations, and most of all, intoxicating power and control.

Redistributing wealth is the only thing communists know how to do brutally and stealthily well. Those who do not pay taxes or hold down jobs protest that it is their right to steal someone else’s money. They’ve even come up with a new euphemism, they are not stealing the wealth of producers, they are merely forcing them to “share the burden.”

But it is stealing! Every moment of time that we must work to earn money and pay taxes that are then spent by our out-of-control government on non-producers is a moment too long that we are slaves to someone else, a moment of time that is stolen from our limited time on earth.

UPDATE: The Department of Labor today dropped several of the new regulations banning kids from working on family farms.

    everything the obama administration does comes from the communist handbook. this whole administration is run by marxists and their lackeys. people, especially democrats need to made aware of the fact that their party is run by the SDS. check out the background of the people that are influencial in this administration, all college radicals, some going all the way back to the sixties.

    Well said by the good doctor. And nothing like a corrupt media to just not say anything to the people about what is going on. It’s a half hour of manufactured “war on women”, “war on religion”, “social justice” for select minority groups, or propaganda BS about man-made global warming. Nothing is real in the national news, and it is getting worse by the day.

    Does anyone really think this new law will EVER be used against the Mexican illegals whose entire families, down to the littlest kids, are worked on the farms?

    No — this will only be used against non-Mexican farmers. Just watch and see.

  • Thank god. The last thing we would is for those children to develop a strong work ethic (that or food).

    Subprime Scandal: The radicals who caused the mortgage crisis by shaking down banks for risky loans now demand they forgive those loans.

    ***********

    Background: the Subprime mortgage scandal grew out of requirements imposed by Congress on our largest banks to lend to people who couldn’t repay their mortgages. This caused what became known as a housing bubble, and George H.W. Bush gave his first of many speeches warning about the problem in January, the year he took office. The bubble burst near the end of his second term.

    Barack Obama supposedly gave legal advice during a lawsuit by ACORN to force banks to lend to people who could not show the ability to repay their loans. All during the Bush two terms, the Democrats at the national level claimed that everything was fine.

    More recently, ACORN has been involved in astroturfing OWS, which protests against the eeeevil banks, and Barack Obama has been blaming George Bush for the economic consequences of the ACORN lawsuit.

    Just connecting a few dots, here.

A nation where they still are free but their freedoms are slipping away and this Nation that is a shining City on the Hill is becoming a sad and dangerous place, dull and lifeless of work, energy, security, freedoms thanks to the Marxist in Chief.

    Unbelievable – Michelle Obama says “Stay Away From The Haters”….

    First lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday urged a group of young girls to “stay away from the haters.”

    “There’s always going to be haters out there. Don’t focus on that,” she said. “Put the negative things aside, because that’s always going to be there.”

    – First Lady Michelle Obama, 2012

    For some reason I have a difficult time reconciling this advice about “staying away from haters” when the very person who says it sits in the church pew of this “hater” for twenty, yes twenty, years.

    The only way it is possible to reconcile the statement from Michelle Obama is to accept the fact she is, in actuality, saying it’s perfectly acceptable for black haters to spew vitriolic hate speech, and simultaneously unacceptable for White Haters to do the same. Not exactly exemplifying post-racial, or inclusive ideology.

    And it is being taught and studied and refined in every single American University, and HAS BEEN SINCE 1959.

    Obama’s got no plans for communes. This is about moving this last small piece of agriculture into the hands of coporate agribusiness Archer Daniels Midland will reap the benefits and that’s the way Obama wants it. He’s not a marxist in the sense he seeks govt ownership. he’s smart enough to realize that will NEVER fly in America. But corporate growth is as American as apple pie and big govt linked to big business and finance with an assist from big labor and media and a helping hand from big education will allow America to move to a fascist state almost unnoticed by the people. That’s what Obama and Pelosi are, Fascists. And corporate Amreica is moving in lockstep with them.

  • Multitude

    I disagree as to the actual motivations. Obama is not an ideological Marxist in that he loathes Capital and its affects. Just take a look at his extravagant lifestyle, his McMansion in Chicago, his wife’s $5000 painting and gardening shirts, etc.

    For progressives, it’s entirely about Control. Imprisoning farmers who are producing whole milk isn’t about safety (who cares if someone decides to eat whole milk? Hell, are you going to stop them from eating dirt or weeds? A cop in every back yard? Oh wait, so that’s what the domestic Predator drones are all about… ). All the new FDA regulations on small farms are not about safety. Did you know if you have a kitchen on a farm to work with your products (e.g. you’re an organic grower and you periodically work with your crop, like grapes or apples), you now have to pay for FDA inspections of your kitchen? And they’re dumping all sorts of requirements that are suitable for a kitchen at a Green Giant production facility. No small farmer’s going to have those resources.

    Progressives are so terrified of uncertainty that they require totalizing control over all aspects of society. It’s the origin of their movement, functioning as an extreme reaction by the white elites who feared Marxism would enrage the dark skinned masses and lead to overthrow as Europe had witnessed numerous times. It’s a trickery to fool those same masses, the young, and the naive faux intellectuals into believing the movement is about progress, compelling them to support that which actually constrains and restricts progress.

    I heard about this 3-4 weeks ago and I’ve been wondering when Gateway Pundit and some of the other blogs would cover this monstrosity. Being raised on a small farm in hilly SE Kentucky, being able to help with the work gave me a great sense of pride and at the same time taught me the value of hard work. As my Grandmother used to say, “If we want to eat in the winter, we must work in the summer.” This regulation will destroy our farm kids’ values. Sadly, I think that is the goal.

    OT — We should be worried about the Executive Order (EO 13547?) Obama signed recently that gives the Government POWER OVER ALL SOURCES OF WATER for Americans — i.e., ponds on farms, rain water, etc. If this EO is not repealed, the environmentalists have won.

    “The proposed regulations would not apply to children working on farms owned by their parents”, says the Labor Department press release from last August announcing publication of the proposed law revisions in the Federal Register. 

    
Kids CAN work on their own family’s farm and subject themselves to the risk of working around dangerous machinery.  They are exempt from this rule. The law is designed to prevent them from hiring outside employees under the age of 16 and to protect them from possible harm on the job.

    Apparently Sarah Palin doesn’t see huge Confined Animal Feedlot Operations, she doesn’t see the sludge ponds of waste from the CAFO’s, she doesn’t see the huge equipment that is used such as harvesters and thresher machines. She can’t understand how many chemicals such as anti-biotics, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, fertilizers, machine lubricants, fuels, etc. etc. etc. All these things that make modern industrial farming a very hazardous occupation for grownups much less children.

    Obama has about eight months left to totally turn America into a communist country. I know Americans like the fact that they get to vote out people they do not want, but guess what, you don’t get to vote out communists who take over. Wake up. You all are waiting to place your vote, but then again so are many illegals and Americans who are going to vote and stuff the ballot boxes. Your vote isn’t going to be worth the machine or paper it is put on. I sure hope Americans do not roll over and take it.

    Thank you for informing us about this. We have seen the constant erosion of our rights, and property rights. This isn’t an isolated incident, just out of recent memory was the attack on small produce growers and in fact the government is regulating the small business right out of existence. This statement say’s it all: The Marxist-Leninist dogma said, “A small property generates capitalism day by day, minute by minute, spontaneous, and in mass proportions.” The small-time farmer feeding his family, with a little surplus, was seen as an individual member of the bourgeoisie, requiring squashing.

    My family has a construction trucking business. I don’t know if you have been watching what has happened to the trucking business, but many independent operators have been run out of business to end up working for the big companies, working as a driver, but not paid by the hour as most labor is, PAID BY THE MILE! And at a rate they got 25 years ago. They don’t get paid for their time loading or unloading or waiting to pick up the load. Where is the dept of labor there “protecting” the worker? Now they have to compete with Mexican trucks! There will be NO small independent businesses under the progressives plan..

    Obama must be defeated and his policies rejected if our constitution and country are to remain.

    #25–Jim, you are a democrat troll, how do those n*ts taste you commie n*tlicker? Grow up, George Bush hasn’t been president the last 3.5 years, and if he had done 10% of what Obama has done your pants would have been permanently stained brown, from you constant crapping. The MSM would have written a hundred articles a day criticizing his actions, instead of ignoring and covering up as they do for Obama. Get a job and pay your own way and stop accommodating theft by the government. It isn’t “redistribution”, it’s theft. I’m far from rich, and also a retired union worker, so don’t get the idea I’m some fat cat. You want “fair”? How about a flat rate income tax, ALL pay on gross income, NO deductions, NO tax credits, No breaks of any kind, NO subsidies, NO bribes by politicians with taxpayer money to purchase votes. I think that would be FAIR and let’s keep the rate low, NINE percent or less sounds good to me, so the citizens remain prosperous.

    the dept of labor already has regulations on child LABOR.

    Also in my lifetime, every time the government “regulates”, it starts out with regulations on big business and in the next breath says, this isn’t going to apply to small business, then guess what? After a short period they apply all the regulations to small business… A small family business doesn’t have the ability to have to fill out endless paperwork, permits, and useless government paperwork no one reads or uses, they are working dawn to dark making a living. There are NO 8 hour workdays in small business, after you drive an 8 hour day, the trucks need to be maintained, tires need to be changed, there is ALWAYS something. Big corporations love these regulations being pushed down on their small competitors, who are usually much cheaper than their big counterparts, and a lot more affordable to the consumer. Big corporations have staffs of lawyers, accountants and secretaries to handle all this and love the government running these small independent family businesses out of business.

  • This is tyranny! It’s how the Russian’s used to do things. They would pass a law send a Communist agent around to tell you what you can do and what you can’t, of course in this case we’re modern and have TV and cell phones and the internet, and then once you know what the new law is then you had not better have your kids out in the fields and have a Communist agent of the Dept. of Labor drive by your field and see your kid on a tractor or you will loose your farm, or be fined heavily or something. Rush was telling a story about how the Roman’s used to keep people under control without having to send a bunch of troops. They would go to some village and grab the first five (5) people they would find and crucify them, then the Roman’s wouldn’t have any trouble out of that village for a few years.

    See, that’s what this is. The Roman’s have spoken, you are not to employ your children unless they are 1) old enough to work, 2) have received all the proper training, and 3) you are not exposing them to any dangerous chemicals or working conditions unless you have given them enough protection according to the government regulations, 4) your children are your employees and should be treated as such.

    Yeah, what I would like to know is, is the government going to compensate every farmer in the country all the money they are going to have to spend to go out and hire all the help they need? I doubt that will happen.

    What the liberals don’t want is for young people to learn good work habits, dissipline, what you do pays off if you do things right, and that there is a good profit from farming the land you own. Oh, excuse me that’s two things, the good things kids learn from farming, and the benefits of private property ownership. That’s what liberals really want to stop.

Do any of your liberals think you could take care of yourselves if things got real bad, I mean like really bad where your soft life came to an end, and there wasn’t any government telling you what to do at every step, or someone like us who understand that things are not as good as the government is telling people? Where you liberals think that your easy soft life will continue on like it is now forever, or to be prepared for the worse and hope for the best like many of us conservatives are doing? We know that things can’t go on like it is forever, and are preparing ourselves for any unforeseen situation. You don’t believe anything bad is going to happen to you, just us who don’t follow Obama and his Communist agenda for the country. We believe that this Labor Dept. ruling is wrong, you don’t have kids and don’t believe you need any children to carry on your name, and if you did then you would pay someone else to have the kid for you so you wouldn’t mess your sleek body up. Is that the way it’s going to be, those of you who don’t even have kids are trying to tell us who do, how we should raise our kids?

    #51 – Where in this article is Sarah Palin mentioned? She certainly lives rent free in your head. Unfortunately, I am sure that is a place where she would not want to be. All that empty space. Regardless, whether or not family members are excluded at the present time is irrelevant. Marxists have a way that as soon as they get a toe in the whole body will soon follow. It’s OK, just you wait when it is mandatory for college students to have to work in the fields or else they will not be able to finish their education. We will see if you are so complacent when it is you or one of your children.

    After all didn’t Obama’s mother go to Cuba to help the revolution by cutting cane? Absolutely not necessary until someone in the government had the brilliant idea to take over the sugar industry.

    They might as well take over the kids because they already have control of the water.

    What #46 said. It’s been true before that EO. They have so many government agents and agencies that they can afford to send out these ignorant goons to decide if you get the permits and if anything on your farm is polluting. Always they fall back on the water issue.

    Remember the AR people that were so proud of their rabbit cages? The ones that sold something like 7 or 14 and then they owed thousands? Amazed it was not the poop going into the water. Chicken manure from chicken houses that is fertilize and used for years is a no no. Ranchers have to contend with so much and then it is all about the abused animals.

    This is so damn scary. They have already driven many small farmers out. They want control and almost have all of it. Control the fuel, food and water.

    If our ELECTED voices do not get off their no good for nothing azzes and start standing up and screaming this stuff on every tv, radio and paper they can find, I can’t be held responsible for my …………

    He’s going to take the family farms, just like Stalin did. Why is this bastard being allowed to be where he is? Why are they letting him do this. Senator Thune, with all do respect, I’m sick of your stupid legislation that isn’t necessary. The African Muslim bastard needs to be arrested. Maybe if you’d had just respected the Constitution, and not permitted a foreigner from usurping the White House, the farmers wouldn’t be the newest victims of this impostor. This is their property! They don’t have the right to interfere in the family farms! DO YOUR JOB! GET HIS PAPERS!

    #50 – What part of DOES NOT APPLY TO CHILDREN ON FAMILY FARMS. do you not get?”

    Oh dude, we get it. Here’s the deal though: Those same kids cannot work on their Grandparent’s farms, their Uncle’s farms, nor any other farm around. Have you ever had a kid showing livestock at the 4-H fair? Well, some of them agisted their livestock somewhere else. This law would prevent them from feeding, cleaning up after, mixing grains, or even transporting their livestock to another farm. Yep, there goes 4-H.

    Oh, and while we’re at it: Those same kids cannot help on a neighbor’s farm. A lot of farmers in this area trade work: If someone has a bale-wrapper, they’ll wrap the bales for a farmer who in turn will allow that farmer to use his 8-row planter to plant corn when needed. In any of those cases, no child under the age of 18 can move, set-up, tear-down, repair or use the equipment.

    If that same next-door neighbor goes on vacation or needs to go away from the farm for a day or so, the neighbor kid can’t work on his farm for those days when it is needed. I know of a lot of times when neighbors pitch in to help a farmer who’s had a medical emergency. There was one guy who died suddenly, the neighbors pitched in and brought in the harvest for the widow. It helped immensely. But now, those kids who want to help out their friends will be forced to sit inside and do nothing.

    Here in the real world, we help each other out. We do the work ourselves. I remember years of picking beans, feeding chickens, helping with the milking and gathering eggs on my Grandparents’ farms. Now, the next generation cannot do that. They are forced to sit inside for what? Some fear they might get hurt? A kid delivering pizza in the big city has more of a danger of getting hurt.

    And what about this idea that kids need more exercise? Well now they can’t do that! I spent summers at my Grandparents working my butt off in the garden and in the barn. Can’t do that anymore! That will lead to fatter kids who have no idea how to grow anything.

    Yeah, we get the whole “Family Farms are OK’ thing. It’s still stupid, communistic and unwarranted. But get out your lil’ leash so that those kiddies don’t get hurt!

  • When this mess we are in comes crashing down where would you rather be, on your small farm or the the big city killing each other for scraps out of a garbage can?

  • Rome’s Bureaucrats Better than the EPA’s at Increasing Prosperity!A comparison, with graphics, of how Rome’s takeovers left areas prosperous, whereas Obama/Government interference has the opposite effect. For example, PAX ROMANA vs POX OBAMA. In conclusion — Rome knew how to create wealth. And, despite the fact that Roman soldiers had little qualms about inflicting pain, I would also argue they showed more compassion during their crucifixions than the EPA does during theirs.

    Not all of the new, onerous regulations have been withdrawn, just the most egregious ones. Family farms still are getting a butt-load of new regulations they will have to comply with.

    This is a Pyrrhic victory at best.

  • currently

    Sad, depressing, irritating and mind boggling.

    Nevermind that accidents have increased or decreased. Who keeps these government statistics? It’s beside the point. Don’t you think families want to protect their kids or anyone else working on the farm?

    I’d trust them over the Government any day.

    Anybody consider the jihad against the infidel farmer? Michigan “feral” pig situation….WHO came up with this plan? Islam is HUGE in Michigan and pork is unclean. hmm?

    Well, looks like they pay close attention to the conservative online sites. It pays off to confront and expose their commie plans and crackpot ideas. By the way, it was about family farms….
