And another dumb liberal idea gone awry:
America was built by farmers, and to this day, farming is a generational industry for many. So why are federal agencies, led by President Obama appointees, intent on taking steps that will undermine and ultimately destroy our nation’s agricultural heartland?
It’s no secret that liberals hold fatty, high-carbohydrate dairy and corn products directly responsible for our nation’s obesity rates. They blame farting cows for a depleted ozone layer and consider farming streamlined animal abuse. Yet the government’s attempt to effectively ban farm kids from working on their own farms goes beyond outrageous.
Under new standards being advocated by the Labor Department, youths under the age of eighteen would be prohibited from working in hay lofts, giving shots, caring for baby animals, and being in the vicinity of animals whose behavior may be “unpredictable.” For the estimated 1.3 million youths living or working on farms, this means no longer being able to perform routine chores if the farm is set up as a corporation or a business partnership. Today, the vast majority of family farms are legally structured in this manner.
Citing agriculture’s high fatality rate, uninformed liberal elites have taken it upon themselves to create an image of uneducated, backwards farmers who are too stupid to protect themselves and their children. In fact, the Labor Department believes that “[c]hildren employed in agriculture are some of the most vulnerable workers in America.”
Nothing could be farther from the truth.
While America is busy engineering politically correct, “bubble-wrapped babies,” farm kids are raised to endure adversity, work hard, and take responsibility.

I have to agree, this would be freaking torture and something not allowed by the government to be used on terrorists!
Two seniors at Evanston Township High School in Illinois had a rather novel — if patently inhumane — idea for raising $1,000 to help a popular student hangout spot that was going under: Play Justin Bieber’s “Baby” over the PA system over and over until students coughed up the dough.
After administrators approved the Geneva Convention-flouting fundraiser for the Boocoo café & art studio, Charlotte Runzel and Jesse Chatz assaulted their classmate’s ear-drums with “Baby” after each class period — over twenty times between Monday and Wednesday.
The Saved By The Bell-esque scheme proved successful: Despite having a whole week to raise the money, it took Runzel and Chatz only three days to reach their goal.
“It made me smile to look at what we can do and look at the money we are raising,” said Chatz.
But some students and staff members on the receiving end were not as enthused.
“There were certainly people who disagreed that it was a fun thing,” said the school’s assistant director of student support and racial equity, Ali Hart. “Some people were truly annoyed, but that’s kind of the incentive. If it wasn’t going to be slightly annoying, then you wouldn’t be motivated to stop the music.”
And this is what turns men on, women in leather! Know why? Because she then smells like a new truck! hahahahhahaaha
Read this very carefully and ask yourself: why need on site and ready to put up fencing and other material to make CONCENTRATION CAMPS? See, this is yet another move by our government to be ready to snatch and grab those citizens it deems necessary to put away in a camp.
Alex Jones has posted a “Help Wanted” advertisement issued by a private firm that is working for the U.S. government, namely, FEMA. The document reads as follows:
KBR is establishing a National Quick Response Team for our current Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) work, and for anticipated future contracts. Upon completion of evaluation, certain subcontractors may be invited to establish a Master Services Agreement (MSA) with pre-established lease rates and terms and conditions. The Continental US will be broken up into five regions as indicated in the map below Services will be required in each State within each region.
Anticipated Project Requirements:
Establish services listed below within 72 hours for initial set-up and respond within 24 hours for incremental services. This is a CONTINGENCY PROJECT and it should be stressed that lead times will be short with critical requirements due to the nature of emergency responses.
Subcontractors must be flexible and able to handle multiple, shifting priorities in an emergency environment. Supply lines needed must be short but not necessarily pre-positioned.
Think of the many good soldiers who died and what they would say about our president hosting TERRORISTS in the white house.
On June 25, 1996, in Khobar, Saudi Arabia, a housing complex near Saudi Aramco (a Saudi national oil company) was targeted by terrorists. A truck bomb was detonated just outside one of the buildings that housed US and foreign military personnel. The explosion ripped the front of the building off, much like what happened in the Oklahoma City bombing.
Casualties from the attack were 1 Saudi and 19 US Air Force personnel killed and 372 US, Saudi and other foreign military personnel injured. The carnage was incredible and left a permanent impact upon many of the survivors of the attack.
William Schooley, a US Air Force staff sergeant was asleep in the next building when the bomb exploded. He immediately responded to the site where he assisted in the recovery of the wounded and dead. Schooley recounted his actions as,
“I cleared the path for the walking wounded to evacuate and then provided first aid to the wounded. Unfortunately, the airman I was working on did not survive. I don’t know how to put arms back on.”
The scene was so intense that Schooley was later given a medical discharge due to post traumatic stress.
Initially, the US officials blamed Hezbollah al-Hejaz the local Saudi Hezbollah, as being responsible for the attack. Since then, the FBI linked Iran’s Revolutionary Guard to the Khobar Tower bombing.
One individual with ties to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard and who has been indicated as having some knowledge or possible involvement is Hadi Farhan al-Amiri, who is currently serving as Iraq’s minister of transportation. Though official investigation has not been able to document al-Amiri’s role in the bombing, many believe that there is enough circumstantial evidence linking him to the attacks or that he has knowledge of those who did.
With the implications surrounding al-Amiri, many survivors and the families of the victims of the Khobar Towers bombing are enraged by the callous inconsideration of President Obama who recently hosted a delegation from Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on Monday that included al-Amiri.
Schooley commented on al-Amiri’s White House visit by expressing,
“Outrage at the visit to the White House really doesn’t describe what I feel. I watched outstanding airmen die that night and witnessed horrific carnage. The survivors of Khobar Towers have been swept under the rug and now have received the greatest insult.”
On hearing of Obama’s welcoming of al-Amiri, another senior airman who survived the bombing and who asked to be anonymous shared his outrage by saying,
“Given Hadi al-Amiri’s ties to terrorism and potential knowledge of those who committed the yet-unsolved FBI investigation into the brazen murder of 19 USAF airmen at Khobar Towers, his presence in the White House was nothing short of insulting to those who both lost family members and those who survived the horrific attack. It wouldn’t matter whether it was a Democrat or a Republican in the White House, it was just wrong.”
Chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) sent a letter to Obama questioning his wisdom in having al-Amiri at the White House. She also told him that al-Amiri should not be involved in the future of Iraq if they want their future to be successful.
But we should not be surprised by the president’s actions. Over the past three years he has repeatedly demonstrated that he has no concern for the American public or for our military personnel. His only concerns are for his brother Muslims and Marxists who he plans on using to overthrow America as we know it.
