8787694Gotta get ’em early, eh?  Toddlers at a N.Z. farmer’s field day, wearing hi-viz vests to rake hay with plastic implements. Their chains will sit lightly by the time they’re grown….

    Of course KG, the young must be convinced they do not have to face any challenges or risks in their entire lives. All the more easy to make them dependent on the government. (you really need a puke emoticon or one that screams in anger)

    Part of the reason things like this are happening-


    When women start doing what men have traditionally done, yours is a civilization of the setting sun.

    • KG says:

      Yep. Exactly right.
      We end up with a feminised society which will never fight for freedom and which will in fact help repress any signs of it. Because the bastards are terrified of what it costs.
      They’ll go to any lengths to avoid facing the reality of life as a battery hen.

    • Michael in Nelson says:

      What that demographic shows is the rise in single parent (i.e. mothers) families. In addition the high number of unemployed men in the US is another factor. I don’t think it is an indication of women taking over traditionally male roles so much as the breakdown in two parent families.

    On the CR sidebar:
    “The loss of freedom is like cancer; it will spread slowly but surely across all parts of society until our liberty has been utterly eaten away and we are left with nothing but a half-forgotten idea of what freedom was.”

    Just sorted that link out KG as it seems to have gone awry.
    Rise in Female Breadwinners Means America Is a Loser

  5. Redbaiter says:

    Comments say it all. What an unbelievably stupid article.

  6. KG says:

    Some great comments!
    It has to be stupidity, surely, because nobody in their right mind would try to excuse what the NSA is doing with such a lame piece of garbage.

    ‘..Vigorous debate on key issues is essential to a healthy democracy, and it is essential that outsiders be able to scrutinize and challenge what public officials are up to.
    People who work for the federal, state, and local governments aren’t privileged overlords to whom we owe obeisance; in a democracy, they are public servants who work for us.
    Right now, however, there are hundreds of thousands of public servants (including private contractors with fat government contracts) who are busy collecting information about every one of us…’

    Geez,I wasn’t much older than those boys when I was mowing hay with a tractor :roll:

      If someone saw your kids on your tractor on your farm mowing hay – there would be hell to pay, starting with the State taking away your kids :!:

      I remember growing up Huntington, W.Va. during the 1950s and at a time when just about everyone dad on the block had fought either the Japs, Germans, or the Chinese/North Koreans and bought back from the wars booty pistol, rifles and parts of uniforms like Nazi and American helmets.

      So on a slow Saturday, the kids would raid the various attics and out buildings and form up “armies” – the kids with the German military equipment would attack the kids with American WW II kits in the woods where the defenders built forts.

      Yep, we were running wild all over Huntington with old unloaded operational rifles and bayonets playing war games – and recall don’t once the police or any adult getting upset…even when one of our number discovered about 1,000 rounds of German ammunition abandoned in an old warehouse about to be knocked down, that we kids took down to the Ohio River and popped rounds at coke bottles we had thrown in the river as targets a couple of old 9mm Mausers.

    In the old days toddlers without vests would play with their toy rakes imitating Daddy bring in the hay. Today they use toy rakes and safety vests to fake the same thing.

    The olden days were better.

    Even Guantanamo Bay detainee uniforms don’t take away all risk on the job.

    When I saw this headline I had a little chuckle- remembering the hi-viz-kidz on this blog a year ago.
    They had little ’30’ circles on their backs, and I thought it was kms/hr -until a reader suggested that’s how many points each was worth
