Well, this should come as a shock to absolutely no one. It seems the U.S. Department of Labor has discovered that hasn’t yet managed to jam its sticky fingers into everything, so it’s set its sights on … farm kids.


The Department of Labor is poised to put the finishing touches on a rule that would apply child-labor laws to children working on family farms, prohibiting them from performing a list of jobs on their own families’ land.

Under the rules, children under 18 could no longer work “in the storing, marketing and transporting of farm product raw materials.”

“Prohibited places of employment,” a Department press release read, “would include country grain elevators, grain bins, silos, feed lots, stockyards, livestock exchanges and livestock auctions.”

Rossie Blinson, a 21-year-old college student from Buis Creek, N.C., told The Daily Caller that the federal government’s plan will do far more harm than good.

“The main concern I have is that it would prevent kids from doing 4-H and FFA projects if they’re not at their parents’ house,” said Blinson.

“I started showing sheep when I was four years old. I started with cattle around 8. It’s been very important. I learned a lot of responsibility being a farm kid.”

Be sure and read the entire article for the full ridiculousness. Personal responsibility? Hard work? Developing skills? But … but … we can’t have our kids learning about such things! If they do, the Nanny State won’t have anyone left to nanny!


Such stupid government overreach is ripe for mockage, and it was only natural that Twitter stepped up to the plate with the #ObamaFarmChores hashtag game.!/Gabby_Hoffman/status/195188897913909248!/greg_zemaitis/status/195188939697561602!/KochMonster/status/195190994164129792!/dcseth/status/195193016972099585!/HiramJGoldstein/status/195193572423766016!/Mattphilbin/status/195200746155802624!/Blaknsam/status/195194585964744705!/greg_zemaitis/status/195189936201269249!/VioletTiger2/status/195194539588333568!/JustenCharters/status/195195663947005953!/Mattphilbin/status/195198338780504064
