Well, that must be the price you have to pay for living in a free country, man.

Freedom certainly is not free is it? I have just about paid my bill but I wouldn't have had it any other way.

Its not really employment though. I never got paid yet worked constantly. Not complaining at all though cause its a great environment to grow up in and I miss it but not fixing broken equipment all the time or scoop shoveling out grain bins or brush hogging rag weed laden CRP land.

Freedom is not free, true. It costs "a buck o'five."

WHEN WILL YOU PEOPLE LEARN TO READ BEFORE ENGAGING YOUR MOUTHS??
The proposed agricultural revisions would impact
only hired farm workers and in no way
compromise the statutory child labor
parental exemption involving children
working on farms owned or operated by
their parents.

I said mouth because, engaging the brain would be asking too much.

I've spent enough time to be happy not being involved in farm work.

Here's some "good old country wisdom" I learned though, since you seem to have some bizarre thing against anything urban.

1) "A man who argues what you believe in, and what you know, when he doesn't know is soft in the head."

2) "People will be good or bad no matter where they are born. If some one tells you they are better then you are because of where that was, then you haven't found one of the good people in the world."

Well, I now live in an urban area but I grew up in the country. So, does that negate your pearls of wisdom?

Started working on Dairy Farm at 8.Mostly feeding,picking rocks off fields and helping with Hay.

I bought my own School clothes,bought Cattle,Hogs and Dogs.Had plenty in Savings.By the time I got married at 17 I worked one more year bought my own 100 acres,6 bedroom house.

But so many regulations anymore with kids,they want to work but people don't want to take the chance.Last time I hired Kids the only thing they could do was unload and load trucks,couldn't even sew Bags of Grain.
