    What is the reason for this. They're bored? I love when we have to "update" laws. What exactally is the problem with the old one? And why do they want to get rid of 4H, oh yeah it's PRIVATE orginization, we gotta have the govenment send in their min wage city employees who read about this stuff in a book.

    read the OP link. They are not trying to get rid of FAA and 4H, just replace their safety training with a government approved training. I think it's a huge waste of time and tax payer money, true, but it is not doing away with 4H or FAA as an entity.

    This is just plain stupid. I used to pick berries, cherries, and beans growing up. I raised my own calves and it taught me about work and reward. Sad that we are taking this away from our children.

    Wow...talk about hypocrisy.
    Corporate Agriculture, especially the beef industry, employ underage illegals on a regular basis.
    Yet - Obama goes after family farms.
    Yeah...he is for the little guy alright. :eusa_eh:

    I think the point is they're trying to get rid of those programs for "approved" ones. Kinda how they did in schools with sex ed, taking stuff away from parents and private orginizations so we have govenment beaurecrats running the show. My question is what about 4h and FAA saftey training is not working?

    like I said, I do not disagree that replacing the safety training in FAA and 4H is a waste and not needed.

    However, that is a far cry from the sky is falling mentality of the OP. The proposed changes do NOT affect family members doing chores on a family farm, only 'employees'.

    People should actually READ and RESEARCH before they take what someone posts here as Gospel. That goes for BOTH sides of the spectrum.
