What is it with our government's over-the-top regulation these days? Not only is it trying to control our healthcare, our artwork, and our schoolchildren, but now the government is even trying to control our hard-working mothers!
Each day before the school bus comes to pick up the neighborhood's children, Lisa Snyder did a favor for three of her fellow moms, welcoming their children into her home for about an hour before they left for school.
Regulators who oversee child care, however, don't see it as charity. Days after the start of the new school year, Snyder received a letter from the Michigan Department of Human Services warning her that if she continued, she'd be violating a law aimed at the operators of unlicensed day care centers.
So at the same time Obama is busy preaching to mothers to go back to school or go back to work, the government is busy impeding their effort?
"The worst part of this whole thing, with the state of the economy ... two parents have to work," said Cowan, a corporate sales representative with a 5-year-old son and 11-month-old daughter. "When you throw in the fact that the state is getting involved, it gives women a hard time for going back to work.
Furthermore, who is the government to say whether or not YOUR OWN neighbor can watch YOUR OWN kids? Lisa Snyder was simply trying to do a favor for her friends so they could make it to work in time- too bad Big Brother had to ruin it.
