Farmers across America holdings -- stick up against Morgan -- new government regulation the administration is considering.
New child labor laws that could prevent kids from marketing.
On many areas of their well -- family farms.
Even the kids on the part of themselves would be barred.
First the -- con man and now this give us star.
Red Steagall and says this is a lot of crops.
Companies like that but read this is you don't like this.
I don't like it -- let's talk a little bit about -- -- to -- agricultural society.
Millions and millions of people who are hardworking dedicated tax paying citizens and proud to be Americans.
Supply the most economical.
Efficient and safest food supply on this planet -- only one point 7% of our population.
They feel that they belong to the land and millions -- -- feeling of belonging and to that for the young.
And those young people grow up in a live laboratory.
Learning how to handle livestock learning -- -- the rotation of crops all the cycles of agriculture and the grand cycle of life.
They take those that education.
To a college or university and -- learn about the new technology -- learn how to treat their lifestyle as a business because they have to in order to enjoy the lifestyle.
We take that away from home.
They no longer feel like they belong they no longer feel like they have a place -- that they have a farmer -- -- -- go -- to -- -- educated.
And have a lifestyle that their parents had their grandparents and a great grandparents.
And I think it's absolutely horrible that -- Proposing to take that away from them because these are the things that they can't learn in a classroom.
But -- and when they come now that open laboratory bumps are -- when they come out and say.
Well we're fine with the -- -- red storm about but you have to draw a line at what could be.
Abuse in other words having -- a 78910.
Year old kid.
We're gonna hot sun you know ten hours today.
Essentially free labor.
And did so like a glorified sweat shop but with corn -- Well I don't agree with it.
Most of the young people that I know and have -- an awful lot of people who -- in agricultural society those kids love to be a part of -- they want to learn.
They want to feel like they belong that's their piece of land.
And they belong to that piece of land and I disagree that we are abusing the children in agricultural says yes.
That's why where did this come from -- right I don't know will the Genesis them but.
I mean this has been in greater are called for a long time -- is not not abuse is going on America's farmlands -- -- You're quite right did have a son of a farmer becomes a farmer becomes you know the big gotten to other farmers and it's gone this way it forever.
So what what started this and in Brazil abuses going on but.
I don't know but Aldo Leopold once said that.
It's terrible that everybody doesn't girl up on farmer -- because they have a tendency to believe that food comes from the grocery store.
And he comes from the -- the fact that they don't understand all the things that it takes to develop and perpetuate the lifestyle and agriculture.
And agricultural truth is the third largest employer in our entire society.
And it didn't make any difference how -- our armed forces are how fast our technology is how comfortable homes and cars are if we can't feed ourselves.
None of that makes any difference.
So what I wanna know is that -- the next generation gonna come from that point if we put shackles on these people who want to learn and be a part of our agricultural society.
Very good point you know read -- -- I worked on a form for a while I was a kid I -- effect there was always free float that was his name are Bret thank you very very much red Steagall.
