Got Milk

Got Milk

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”.  
– de Andréa 1998

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 California 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.

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 Los Angeles County 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.

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:
“I received a phone call yesterday morning from a wonderful young gal, a 36-year-old mom out of LA County.  She’s one of our UPS customers that we deliver overnight raw milk to her house.  When the CDFA was in here the other day on our recall, they demanded to have all our delivery addresses for overnight UPS delivery.  We screwed up and [inadvertently] gave it to them; they got it from one of our secretaries here.  The LA County health department started calling her, six or seven times, demanding that she give up her raw milk from her own home to the health department.

She refused, then they showed up at her house and demanded that she give her raw milk to them.  She was getting ready to call 911 for the sheriff’s department and have them removed from her front doorstep, and she was threatening to use her camera to take a picture of them and post it on FACEBOOK for harassing her over her raw milk…  The investigators left after she told them she was not going to give them the raw milk and to get the hell off her property.

This is what’s going on, it’s like food Nazis, it’s incredible what these people are doing, trying to collect food from people’s houses…

Then the San Diego health department called me up and said oh we want a list of all your buyer’s club members, and I said no… and they said we want all their addresses and their names, because we want to go to their homes.  I said it ain’t happening, we aren’t going to give it to you.”

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 Minnesota 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 videos

Today, 30 states allow the sale of raw milk and 20 forbid it, but the federal government forbids it in interstate business.

In California, 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 milk.  …  She wants blood.”

In that recent case in Wisconsin, a judge ruled that Americans do not have a right to choose their food, not even when they own the cows and the milk.

“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!
