I'm sure you've heard a least one news report about kids working on the farm,
and how the Department of Labor, has come up with new rules for "Their Safety"
"" BULL SHIT""
It's about unions, if your kids can't work, then you have to hire someone
approved by the government to do the same job. That can be unionized.
It's about the right to raise your children, how you see fit. It's about
property rights and the right to have as little of the
government in your life as possible.
I grew up in a ranching an farming family. Rode behind my mom,
horseback from fist light till last, moving cattle. When I could ride
by myself, my babysitter was an old roan horse. My mom know,
if I couldn't keep up, Red would head for the barn.
I was as safe as any kid.
At age nine I started driving tractor for my dad.
At first running tools while he fixed fence,
then doing more, little by little.
I can hunt and fish, cut and rap my own meat.
Grow and can my own food, drive almost anything and do almost anything.
By the time I was in high school the ranch I grew up on was gone.
I've lived a privileged life since I've been married, but not without hard work,
side by side with my husband. The same as my mom did with my dad,
and her mother did and they were both ranchers daughters.
Who I am and what I have achieved on my own,is because of how
I grew up. "Ranching and Farming". The best thing I ever did for my
kids, was to move them to our 18 acre farm and put them in 4-H.
To the powers in Washington DC.
