When will the government quit telling the people what to do. As a kid I started working at 10 mowing yards. No regulations. That is why our kids are so lazy today.

Obama, Jindal.. most politicians arent worth much.. our society has gotten lazy, and less responsible. Farm chores are a way of life.. not chores. The government should not have the right to tell me my son working on our family farm cannot climb a ladder or drive a tractor. If my neighbor was changing his roof on his house, it would be dangerous but acceptable.
