Another great idea from Skippy…

Think: what else can I do to ruin the USA?


Does Obama sit around thinking of how he can destroy our country even more? That’s a rhetorical question. Now comes another brilliant idea from this administration:

Now Obama Wants to Force Farmers to Get Commercial Drivers Licenses

Via Gateway Pundit: A new rule being proposed by the federal Department of Transportation would require farmers to get commercial drivers licenses.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration wants to adopt standards that would reclassify all farm vehicles and implements as Commercial Motor Vehicles, officials said. Likewise, the proposal, if adopted, would require all farmers and everyone on the farm who operates any of the equipment to obtain a commercial driver’s license (CDL), they added.
The proposed rule change would mean that anyone who drives a tractor or operates any piece of motorized farming equipment would be required to pass the same tests and complete the same detailed forms and logs required of semi-tractor trailer drivers.
Drivers would keep logs of information including hours worked and miles traveled. Vehicles would be required to display DOT numbers. A CDL in Virginia costs $64 for eight years, or $8 per year, not including the cost of an instructional class and the written test.
If the DOT reclassifies farm vehicles and implements as commercial vehicles, the federal government will have regulatory control over the nation’s farm workers, estimated at over 800,000, by requiring them to have commercial drivers licenses.
That possibility worries county farmers and others in Halifax County interested in agriculture. “I have a CDL, but very few farmers have one,” said Nathalie farmer Ronnie Waller. “This is just another bureaucratic hurdle for the farmer. It’s hard enough fighting Mother Nature, insects and all…now we have to fight the federal government,” he added. “We’re getting more rammed down our throats, and I could see repercussions across the nation. This move is another inane gesture in my opinion,” Waller concluded.
More control of people and more taxes.  And you know they eventually will want to control their emissions as well.  We know one thing for sure about Skippy, if an idea comes out of this administration, it’s going to be bad for our country.

  1. Am I The Only One?

    “If Congress Would Have Been doing it’s Constitutional Required Duties and Over-Site, Obama and Past Presidents: ‘Would-Not’ of Had Dictator-Type, Over-Reaching Powers, Today!”

     
  2. Am I The Only One?

    Just A Thought: “Would Homeowners and All Their Family Members, That Drove Their Presonal Use Lawn-Tractors; Would They All Have To Get CDL’s, Just to Operate it?”
    “More Un-Employment Numbers for Kids That Mow Lawns In The Summer!”

     
    • Yes, probably (no one would think about that before making the rule and they would think upon its implementation, knowing bureaucrats). And, since when is any of this work on a farm “interstate commerce” allowing it to be federally regulated? They’ll just assume it is, too.

       
  3. This is the difference between a community organizer and someone who has to work for a living. A community organizer is little more than a traffic cop directing traffic. He or she co-ordinates activity geared to enhance the existence of the community. To make the interchange of ideas seem important, they periodically give each other awards and titles but, as a rule, nothing has been earned in the process, such as a salary, unless they are union bosses and/or community leaders. We all know how much these individuals get paid for “existing,” and no production!

  4. I’ve been aware of this for a little over a week. I work in this industry. Told my boss, e-mailed a senator, all in vain I’m sure. They’ll use any method they can to gain control. No better way than food. By the way, great website.

     
  5. Much the same approach used to discourage small business in America, the government clearly wants complete control over our lives in order to create total dependency on the government and foreign imported goods, including food and oil which America has in abundance. Obama knows exactly what he is doing as do members of the progressive party. The Obama administration does not want wealth or independence, rather, his aim is at downgrading America’s credit rating with Standard and Poor’s affecting the stock market and economic stability of the world. Obama easily accomplishes this through his insane policies designed to bankrupt while Republicans sit back and scratch their heads.. Obama did not have a plan to improve this nation’s economy, instead continues to create more and more ideas to help with America’s self-destruction, and then blame the Tea Party when they succeed. They will lie, cheat, and deceive in order to make ends justify the means. This isn’t about meeting the needs and serving the best interest of the people, instead, is a declaration of war against the working middle class and wealthy not beholding to Obama. It’s class warfare with all the propaganda Marxists are able to muster up. Obama is dividing this country like never before since the American Civil War. Nearly all Obama had promised during the presidential campaign of 2008, have later proven boldfaced lies, including bipartisanship and transparency. What we received instead has been the antithesis in nearly every category. Obama has done little, if anything, to hide his evil intentions

     
  6. And yet we are told that a recent poll of religious groups in America finds 65% of Jewish Americans and 50% of American Catholics approving of the way Obama is handling his job as president!
