The new "Farm Laws" proposed by the Dept of Labor, under Barrack Hussien Obama have been withdrawn.

The new law would have prohibited Family Farms the use of thier own family members under the age of 18....... The Bureacrats under Barrack at the direction of Barrack recinded the the law after finding out that they had just laid a big goose egg with the Public..... in other words, over stepping thier responsibilities...... Its a voting thing

Anybody know the real reason for the law in the first place... Share with us.......

That was a trap for our president to fall into, by the prejudiced bureaucracy. He thought it was protecting children. The truth is that because of the huge "Agribusiness" there are very few family farms and most of those farms are all equipped with machinery, so there is no hard labor, like the early days of horse drawn plows. It is a redundant law. The "Agri" boys may use their children, but you can be sure they are all college grads and well over 21. It is interesting that they can't find anything worse to bring up against our president. He has proven them wrong on all counts. If people could let go of their prejudices long enough to see, they would see a man trying hard, against all odds, to help the people of this country.

You might get a kick out of Lehman's website in Kidron, OH. Check out http://www.lehmans.com/ Lehman's sell everything made today or yesterday including Amish buggies, refrigerators, stoves, and much more. We never miss a chance to visit their store when we are in the area. I think you might enjoy their website. The Amish have come a long way in the Sugar Creek, OH area.
