People that actually work for a living.

Post by Rob Lister » Wed Sep 11, 2019 2:57 pm

I'm a fan of this guy. He and his father run a large--~500 cow--dairy farm. His work-ethic is extraordinary. I doubt he ever gets laid. I hope makes a lot of money but I doubt it. Here's one video of many.



I like milk. This guy busts his ass from before the sun rises to well after it sets, every day, rain, snow or shine. The cows won't wait. Sunday is a day you pause for 15 minutes to pray, and even that pisses off the cows.

They have a ~100-acre farm in which they grow most of the feed for the cows.

I would quit the first day.

Yes, but is he a racist? Is he woke? That is what is important. You have snowflakes waking up before noon and laboring for the benefit of everyone till close to dusk. And does his wife get the same pay as him? Do his cows free range?

Does OSHA have different rules for dairy farms? If not they can be a nightmare.

Under OSHA's current appropriations law, OSHA is not allowed to spend any of the funds appropriated to enforce any standard, rule, regulation, or order under the OSH Act which is applicable to any person who is engaged in a farming operation which employs 10 or fewer employees and does not maintain a temporary labor camp.

I wouldn't survive a walking tour of the dairy farm, and if I were the tree guy I would be a bowl of jelly.

Working hard is a moral value (for the poor, of course).

The distain that many on the left have for skilled blue-collar workers has always been a mystery to me.

If you replace "left" with "communist" it all makes perfect sense

For a guy that sexually assaults and maybe even rapes his cows on a daily basis, this guy is pretty cool.



It's interesting what he does at 4:15

He obviously cares very, very much for the comfort of his bitches.

Interesting comment.
I worked for years with very educated folks in white collar pursuits. For the last 8 years or so I have "made things" working with folks in the trades. Less educated, more conservative.

The biggest difference, and one that probably irks lefties, is that the guys in the trades really can conduct themselves with no interaction with the feds, largely. Yeah, the building trades have local zoning but the feds are pretty much out of the picture.

Gotta think in that. It is sorta like the Morlocks.

He decided to take a day off from work and still worked more hours than I do in a week.

Here's the thing: despite propaganda and the occasionally true stereotype, if you count everyone in the US that at least leans left, I think "communists" would be a very small portion. So are you referring to the stereotypical extreme lefty or the more numerous kind?

The lefty that has disdain for people who work and create all the shit needed to live, they are commies. And dumber than hell.

In the USA the "left" these days is a faction of the billionaire ruling class.

Or rather the dupes and lackeys of said faction.

Quick show of hands please.

Who here has ever actually worked for a living (Rob's definition), for even a short period of time?
I'd say non-strenuous indoor drudgery such as retail clerk does not count (I have also been one of those).
Strenuous indoor drudgery such as warehouse work does count.

I have, though not lately.
In my case that includes pick and shovel work, technician in a factory, a technician job that was mostly driving to different sites, and some other odds and ends.

Any other once upon a time proletarians here?

Congratulations, you have achieved circularity.

"The left does this bad thing."
Who are you thinking of as the left?
"People that do this bad thing!"

Not terribly consequential. That would be true even if only three people in the country did that bad thing.

They don't get to have their actual opinions consulted. They are assumed to be lackeys regardless.

One judges by the fact that they all happen to come up with the same talking points simultaneously.
