Today the government is confiscating your milk; tomorrow it will be your guns.

I must be kidding, right?
When I was a kid I worked on my Uncle’s farm during the summer months, the cats drank milk right from the teat, and we had milk right from the domestic female Bovine, on the table at suppertime. But that was back in the olden days when we were living in a free country, and we actually had natural rights.
“Laws don’t prevent crime; laws make criminals and control people”.

We are your government, and we are here to confiscate your drugs, guns, and your milk.
At a time in our history when the weed and tree huggers rule, and everything is green and el natur’al this story is astonishing and contradictory.
Today the founder of the Organic Pastures business in
is reporting that government
health officials have begun tracking down the names and addresses of
natural-foods customers and showing up at their homes, demanding to confiscate
any natural milk they might have and placing them under arrest. California
The dispute over raw milk has reached a fever pitch in recent weeks, with a judge ruling that owners of cows have no right to the milk their herds produce, and protests being staged by mad moms whose access to such foods is being threatened.
No! This is no joke folks…The latest report is documented at NaturalNews.com
The report said
health department officials have “unleashed
door-to-door raw milk confiscation teams to threaten and intimidate raw dairy
customers into surrendering raw milk products they legally purchased and own. Los Angeles County
According to Mark McAfee, “both LA County and San Diego county have attempted to acquire customer names and addresses from Organic Pastures for the sole purpose of sending ‘food confiscation teams’ to customers’ homes to remove the raw milk from customers’ refrigerators.”
NaturalNews quoted from one of McAfee’s reports:
Mike Adams reported on NaturalNews, “Remember: The raw milk from Organic Pastures is legally sold, legally purchased, and greatly enjoyed by its customers. There are virtually no complaints about this product. Customers love it. Only the government wants to confiscate it and destroy it.” He said, “What this clearly demonstrates is yet another ratcheting up of the California police state, where county authorities reach right into your refrigerator and confiscate food that they claim might not be safe — food that you’ve legally purchased and wish to consume knowing full well that it’s fresh and raw!”
It was just a few days earlier that mothers in
staged a protest at the trial of the manager of a farm buying club. The situation there had been monitored by the Farm Food Freedom Coalition. Watch the

, three people
are facing trial following an investigation of the Rawesome buying club. In that case, one of the defense lawyers was
stunned by the militancy of the prosecutor, declaring, “She doesn’t want raw
She wants blood.” California
In that recent case in
, a judge
ruled that Americans do not have a right to choose their food, not even when they own the cows and
the milk. Wisconsin
“The court denied plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment, which means the following:
“(1) no, plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a diary herd;
“(2) no, plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow;
“(3) no, plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to board their cow at the farm of a farmer;
“(4) no, the Zinniker plaintiffs’ private contract does not fall outside the scope of the state’s police power;
“(5) no, plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice; and
“(6) no, the DATCP did not act in an ultra vires manner because it had jurisdiction to regulate the Zinniker plaintiffs’ conduct.”
THE BOTTOM LINE: Easier than listing all the rights we don’t have, would be to list the rights we do have… Aha, that would be NONE!
