Well, that's what a new plan from the United Nations and the Obama Administration is all about. But it doesn't stop there!
Fee's permits, fines, taxation, new licenses and much, much more you will be forced to partake in if you want to run your farm!
Welcome to the New World Order for Farmers ... Agenda 21, they call it!
Now the UN and the Obama Administration want to classify all your farm vehicles and farm equipment as commercial vehicles! That's right a little thing called Agenda 21, is being pushed hard while the UN can rely on Obama to do their bidding. Agenda 21 is a United Nations “comprehensive plan for action to be taken globally, nationally, and locally by organizations of the United Nations system, governments and major groups in every area in which humans impact the environment.”
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, a component of the Department of Transportation, has proposed implementing new standards that require farmers and all those who work on a farm to obtain a license to operate farming machinery. To do this, the agency will be reclassifying all farm vehicles and equipment as Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMVs).
The New American’s William Jasper wrote of Agenda 21 in February, explaining that the plan is virtually all encompassing:
The UN’s Agenda 21 is definitely comprehensive and global — breathtakingly so. Agenda 21 proposes a global regime that will monitor, oversee, and strictly regulate our planet’s oceans, lakes, streams, rivers, aquifers, sea beds, coastlands, wetlands, forests, jungles, grasslands, farmland, deserts, tundra, and mountains. It even has a whole section on regulating and “protecting” the atmosphere. It proposes plans for cities, towns, suburbs, villages, and rural areas. It envisions a global scheme for healthcare, education, nutrition, agriculture, labor, production, and consumption — in short, everything; there is nothing on, in, over, or under the Earth that doesn’t fall within the purview of some part of Agenda 21.
Family Farms will be roped into the coming new world order and regulated out of existence.
What would this mean for our local farmers? The move by the DOT appears to be “legislation through regulation.” By reclassifying all farm vehicles and implements as Commercial Vehicles, the federal government will now be able to claim regulatory control over the estimated 800,000 farm workers in America, at the same time, overriding the rights of the states.
So you would be required to have a commercial drivers, license keep hourly logs, keep up those logs on all equipment and farm workers. You would have to pay fees, have inspection and be allowed by the government to operate your farm equipment.
Your farm equipment would likely be required to display a DOT number and be subject to additional fees, taxes and mountains of regulations and red tape.
From - The Blaze, “if this allowed to take effect, it will place significant regulatory pressure on small farms and family farms all across America — costing them thousands of dollars and possibly forcing many of them out of business.”
Many of our family farmers have seen the large corporate farms push them out and government regulate them out. Between 1974 and 2002, the number of corporate-owned U.S. farms increased by more than 46 percent. (Farm Aid)
In addition thee new rules would make it illegal for your teenage children to work or assist at all on the farm because they could not be licensed to operate the commercial vehicle. Thereby eliminating an American tradition and one of the most important sources of labor for most FAMILY Farms!
They have nearly destroyed the small local banks, now they are setting their sites on family and small farmers. This group wants control and they will stop at nothing to obtain it!
