Welcome to this edition of Time 2 Escape WIFLI Briefing!I am hoping that if you have read a few of my blog posts in this venue,that you will understand that I lean considerably toward being Conservative. And I hope that you have determined that I excel at delivering a narrative that exhibits the confidant personal belief... that I'm right.
What is WIFLI?
You may be wondering what the acronym "WIFLI" means. I started out by calling these issues the Time 2 Escape Daily, but that didn't work out very well. I quickly learned that putting these issues together on a daily basis was a task I was unable to accomplish. To replace "Daily" in the title, I borrowed the acronym WIFLI, which literally means "When I Feel Like It." Putting together a post on this blog WIFLI works much better for my schedule, and for the higher quality of each issue that is eventually published!

However, I have to admit it, I've had times of wondering why I should bother to spend the time working on my blogs. Am I going to change anyone's mind, or am I just preaching to the choir? How would I know if my efforts make a difference?
I really do not have a way to answer that question. There's no tangible statistics like homeruns or strikeouts that tells me if I have a measurable influence in the direction this country was heading. The Rasmussen Report hasn't offered that information to me yet; and if they did, I'd be running for President. If I was a history-maker, you would have heard about it by now.
But I have learned something new this weekend. Hopefully, you will totally understand what was revealed to me. The toughest part of the lesson is knowing that not everyone will agree with everything that we believe. There was the good news that on The Weekend last Saturday when Michael Berry explained very astutely how we must not be dejected when we can not convince a liberal to our way of thinking. It does happen, but not often. What really matters is how many people we touch that had not yet made a decision on which side they are on.
The announcement that you will hear today, the one that will resonate strongly within yourself, is "Game ON!" Hopefully, the resonance will be deep, The stark reality that you will learn about below is that we will win a few when we fight back. We can't win every battle even when we are on the right side. But here's the deal: The liberals need to understand that we're not going to just lay down and comply, even when they pick five to crucify. I'm just sayin'...
* * * *Rural kids, parents angry about Labor Dept. rule banning farm chores
From The Daily Caller ~ By Patrick Richardson ~ Published Apr 25, 2012 1:31 AM
Update, April 26, 7:55 p.m.: Citing public outrage, the Department of Labor has withdrawn the controversial rulemaking proposal described in this article.
A proposal from the Obama administration to prevent children from doing farm chores has drawn plenty of criticism from rural-district members of Congress. But now it’s attracting barbs from farm kids themselves.
The Department of Labor is poised to put the finishing touches on a rule that would apply child labor laws to children working on family farms, prohibiting them from performing a list of jobs on their own families’ land.
Under the rules, most children under 18 could no longer work “in the storing, marketing and transporting of farm product raw materials.”
“Prohibited places of employment,” a Department press release read, “would include country grain elevators, grain bins, silos, feed lots, stockyards, livestock exchanges and livestock auctions.”
The new regulations, first proposed August 31 by Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, would also revoke the government’s approval of safety training and certification taught by independent groups like 4-H and FFA, replacing them instead with a 90-hour federal government training course.

President Barack Obama
Rossie Blinson, a 21-year-old college student from Buis Creek, N.C., told The Daily Caller that the federal government’s plan will do far more harm than good.
“The main concern I have is that it would prevent kids from doing 4-H and FFA projects if they’re not at their parents’ house,” said Blinson.
“I started showing sheep when I was four years old. I started with cattle around 8. It’s been very important. I learned a lot of responsibility being a farm kid.”

Here is a superb video about why the Labor Deptartment's proposed rules needed to be withdrawn. This illustrates the reason why this was a great win for We the People!
Child Labor Law Endangers Family Farms
Each year, an estimated 800,000 children work on farms across the United States.
Mending fences, feeding cattle, and driving tractors are all part of the daily chores for farm kids. But a new U.S. Department of Labor rule could make all of those tasks-- illegal.
Kristen Oaks shows us how those rules could threaten the future of one family farm.

Of course, such ridiculously stupid proposals for more government regulations ended up being withdrawn. And the great news is that this shows us that when the American citizens are awake and alert, We the People can actually overcome the desires of Big Government!
Child Labor Rule Withdrawn
Focus turns to educational programs to reduce farm accidents
From AGWEB (Powered by Farm Journal) ~ By Jennifer Russell ~ Published Apr 27, 2012
The U.S. Department of Labor announced April 26 that it is withdrawing its proposed rule dealing with children who work in the agriculture sector.
The department said in its statement:
"The Obama administration is firmly committed to promoting family farmers and respecting the rural way of life, especially the role that parents and other family members play in passing those traditions down through the generations. The Obama administration is also deeply committed to listening and responding to what Americans across the country have to say about proposed rules and regulations.Farmers and politicians alike have applauded the decision.
"As a result, the Department of Labor is announcing today the withdrawal of the proposed rule dealing with children under the age of 16 who work in agricultural vocations.
"The decision to withdraw this rule — including provisions to define the 'parental exemption' — was made in response to thousands of comments expressing concerns about the effect of the proposed rules on small family-owned farms. To be clear, this regulation will not be pursued for the duration of the Obama administration.
"Instead, the Departments of Labor and Agriculture will work with rural stakeholders — such as the American Farm Bureau Federation, the National Farmers Union, the Future Farmers of America, and 4-H — to develop an educational program to reduce accidents to young workers and promote safer agricultural working practices."

Oh, wait... Now that the problem of the attack on family farms is over, maybe we should start thinking about the fact that the Obama administration is just plain anti-capitalism. The most recent attack came from the EPA, in the form of a bureaucrat trying to set an example. Did you hear about this story? What if it is true? Would a video of the EPA official saying how he'd crucify business operators change your mind?
That's right, I detected some skepticism regarding the Obama attack on free enterprise. But here you go, this is the proof that the transformation of America is not about making sure everyone has a fair chance to succeed. It seems that the real agenda is making sure everyone has a fair chance to have equal results regardless of their efforts.

Here is the proof of the collusion between the Obama administration and the leftist mainstream media minions. It is the smoking gun.
Obama slow jams the news & the economy
From GlennBeck.com ~ Published Friday, Apr 27, 2012 at 2:12 PM CDT
Nothing like a little propaganda on late night television – that’s exactly what America got when Obama stopped by Jimmy Fallon’s program to participate in his ‘slow jam’ the news bit. Only, there was nothing really that funny, just Obama giving a speech and the host making it appear cool.America doesn't need a cool president. We need a president that doesn't have to resort to brazenly using the late night show circuit in order to get things done, like improving our economy and cutting the size of the government.
Watch the video of the Fallon show below:

So... I guess if the "preezy of the United steezy" wants to utilize his left-wing media minions for free propaganda, which seems a little sleazy, let's give him a little taste of some well deserved derision.
It isn't all that often that people try to take credit for such a pathetic performance in the last three-plus years of a one-term presidency. But this one-term president shows his arrogance in believing that his base is ignorant enough to want to vote for him again, just because Barack Obama is so cool.
Right back at you, President Obama. Game on!

I saved the best for last. A week ago, I mentioned the story about Ted Nugent's run-in with the Secret Service regarding remarks during the NRA 2012 Annual Convention on a radio show. In fact, I even linked to the story, "Nugent Ousted From Fort Knox Concert Line-Up." In the story below, Nugent responds to the cancellation.
Ted Nugent says he's insulted by Army base concert cancellation after remarks about Obama
From Yahoo News (AP) ~ By Ryan Pearson, The Associated Press ~ Published Apr 27, 2012
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Ted Nugent said he was insulted by the cancellation of his planned concert at an Army post over his comments about President Obama.
Commanders at the Fort Knox, Kentucky, post nixed Nugent's segment of a June concert after the rocker and conservative activist said at a recent National Rifle Association meeting that he would be "dead or in jail by this time next year" if Obama is re-elected.
CONSERVATIVE ROCK-STAR TED NUGENT
Nugent told The Associated Press this week that his words were not intended as a threat against the president.
"To think that there's a bureaucrat in the United States Army that would consider the use or abuse of First Amendment rights in determining who is going to perform at an Army base is an insult and defiles the sacrifices of those heroes who fought for the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights," Nugent said.
