#2 "To be clear, this regulation will not be pursued for the duration of the Obama administration."
Wonder what the expiration date is on that?

#3 "There's other ways to learn how to farm, but it's so hard. You can learn so much more working on the farm when you're 12, 13, 14 years old."
Ok, I won't say it.

#4 Ag advocates have been fighting this since it was a rumor.
It is not a work where idle hands were just playing about and accidentally boo-bood themselves.
It has nothing to do with protecting kids. It has everything to do with shutting down the rural culture.
So the question is, why?
We out here know the answer. The EPA has been dicking around for 3 years with cow farts and dust taxes. Looking like a class b dork in front of troops ringing out God Bless America the very morning after we nearly got boned is infuriating.

#5 THis legislation is about cutting off self-reliance thought at a young age. Its also comes from the blue states looking down on those in the red states and figuring they know more then them. It was reversed because someone pointed out that the law would effect a number of battleground states and those populations were appalled at the stupidity and nerve.

#7 So glad to hear that they've pretty much squelched this ridiculous dictate that would fragment and impose further balkanization (Wull Duh! same-o,same-o) on our tightly-knit, inter-dependent and very hard-working US farm families.
I'm sure that they're already struggling with the choking specter of much higher animal feed and vehicle fuel prices.
In a previous era, in "this here USA", I loved driving my Grandpa's tractor. I'd plow away doing various tasks and then change implements to drag around until dinner.
My Dad then promulgated the evening orders to my sister and I, "Pack your suitcases before you hit the sack tonight; we're heading back to the Philippines tomorrow...But first, go give Grandma and Grandpa a great big kiss and hug. That's how it was growing up. -cz-
