Tea Party nuts never disappoint:

Congress decided it wanted to prohibit [child labor], so it passed a law—no more child labor. The Supreme Court heard a challenge to that and the Supreme Court decided a case in 1918 called Hammer v. Dagenhardt. In that case, the Supreme Court acknowledged something very interesting — that, as reprehensible as child labor is, and as much as it ought to be abandoned — that’s something that has to be done by state legislators, not by Members of Congress. […]

This may sound harsh, but it was designed to be that way. It was designed to be a little bit harsh. Not because we like harshness for the sake of harshness, but because we like a clean division of power, so that everybody understands whose job it is to regulate what.” Newly elected Tea Party Senator Mike Lee (R-UT)

Yes.  Child labor should be a states’ rights issue.

VH-1, I love the 1830’s!

What’s next for you, Mike?  Would you like to protect Utah’s child brides?  Multiple child brides?

  1. Quick, someone make that little girl work before she can think for herself and become a journalist or a writer!!

    Looks like every Republican wants to be this teen:

  2. Ya know, I actually like people like this fella. When I’m sitting here, feeling fat, stupid and useless, like a complete waste of DNA and space, a nice guy like Mr. Lee comes along and proves that there is somebody else out there who is a HUGE waste of space and DNA! There’s 2 ways to feel better than average – raise yourself, or lower the average. This guy just blew the HELL out of the curve, and NOT in a good way! Kinda makes you wonder about Darwinism sometimes……

  3. Oh, BTW Melissa, I assume the avatar (or whatever you call the little pictures next to an entry) are automatically generated? If not, you picked the perfect one for me – blue (my favourite colour), round (good physical description) and bald as a billiard ball (half nature’s choice, half mine)!

    • Well, when your hairline has a pronounced widow’s peak in your teens, and starts seriously receding in your early twenties, even as it’s turning grey, let’s just say you reach a point where one day, as you shave your stubble, you just don’t stop at what’s left of the hairline. Next thing you know, the only haircare treatment you need is Simonize! (Car wax, for those of you who don’t know.) No more dandruff, no more dirty hair, just occasional waxy yellow build-up! 😉

  4. BTW, on a serious note, as we approach MLK day, check out the following blog for a timely piece:
    Not just pertinent for an African-American father and son who helped the US military get past segregation, but a great example of how Americans have overcome previous divisions between groups. Especially important in light of the tragedy in Arizona.

  5. he just wants to keep the states’ options open. in case all the illegal immigrants get kicked out of the country (like in the rethugs’ wet dreams), someone has to pick all those crops. little fingers will be just right for beans and other small veggies.

  6. That “breaker boys” backgound was an excellent choice for the poster. And please be careful with your young self lest one of those old stinky morman perverts waves his hand and “claims you, having not lain with a man”. Hell, El Dorado Texas was chocked full of them before the DPS shut that giant nest of sin down. This new guy is typical of this new thinking that the Party Of God (Reagbolah) is ready to impose on the normal people. Just review the recent Supreme Court talk about how females are not covered by the 17th amendment. Next they will call for the enforcement of Dred Scott and start rounding up the negroes.
