According to Fox Nation, the latest reason Barack Obama is a fascist is that his administration is encouraging workers in the hot sun to take breaks and drink water. The same advice Hitler would have given!

So what does the Obama "regime" actually say, according to the linked story from

"Let's Move," says the Obama White House. But Obama's Labor Department is telling some workers to slow down.

On Monday, the administration launched a national campaign warning people how dangerous it is to work outside in hot weather.

"Drinking plenty of water and taking frequent breaks in cool, shaded areas are incredibly important in the hot summer months," said Dr. David Michaels, assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, a division of the Labor Department, says heat stroke has killed around 30 workers a year, on average, since 2003, and "thousands" of workers" are stricken annually with heat-related illnesses.

"For outdoor workers, 'water, rest and shade' are three words that can make the difference between life and death," Labor Secretary Hilda Solis said Monday in a news release. "If employers take reasonable precautions, and look out for their workers, we can beat the heat."

Omigod! First they want you to move, then they want you to stop moving occasionally! WHEN WILL THESE TOTALITARIAN DICTATORS MAKE UP THEIR MINDS?!

The CNS story directs us to OSHA's Campaign to Prevent Heat Illness in Outdoor Workers Web page, which includes this commie-red logo:

But what do I see here? Why, it's the exact same logo on an OSHA page dated June 2004! That's impossible! OSHA under the heroic freedom-lover and patriot George W. Bush couldn't have been against heat-related occupational illness! This must be the Obama Ministry of Truth retrofitting the online documents!

Oh, wait -- here's some OSHA heat stuff from 1999. So it's all Clinton's fault.

Nah, it goes further back than that - it goes back to the start of commie pinko unions, and then their favorite President, that commie pinko FDR.

I'm sure he let those socialist CCC and WPA workers take breaks!

Glad to see someone finally coming out in favor of heatstroke.

I'd be happier, Dark, if were we seeing more people coming out of heatstroke. Grant, they're brain-dead and cooked on Kool-Aid, but hey, their stupidity could be the result of physiological reaction to a warmer climate.
