Are there no workhouses?

Just when you think they've hit rock bottom, the GOPers dig to a new low:
Newly minted Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah said in a lecture posted to his YouTube channel that Congressional laws banning child labor are forbidden by the US Constitution.
Well I guess you could call this the GOP's first attempt at actual job creation.

Via Woody, the man of a thousand blogs. I'm stealing this comment from Rick on his Facebook page as the best response: "We musn't deny our citizens the opportunity to "bootstrap" it. Welfare is demeaning, and only encourages laziness. Our children don't need hand outs, they need hand tools."

Really. Maybe we could get them little pickaxes and send them into the coal mines... [photo via]

[Big thanks to Comrade DougJ, the man of a thousand nyms, for the very kind link.]

I should thank you Woody. DougJ picked it up because the quotes were so good. It was really nice of him to include the links in his clip. He's a very nice man.
