An unbelievable story that truly illustrates how far down the road of slavery to the state we are
A yearlong sting operation, including aliases, a 5 a.m. surprise inspection and surreptitious purchases from an Amish farm in Pennsylvania, culminated in the federal government announcing this week that it has gone to court to stop Rainbow Acres Farm from selling its contraband to willing customers in the Washington area.
The product in question: unpasteurized milk.
It’s a battle that’s been going on behind the scenes for years, with natural foods advocates arguing that raw milk, as it’s also known, is healthier than the pasteurized product, while the Food and Drug Administration says raw milk can carry harmful bacteria such as salmonella, E. coli and listeria.
This is simple folks, truly simple. The federal government, nor in my opinion any state government has any reasonable right to dictate to adults whether or not they choose to sell, buy, or consume the milk in question. Now I know there are folks who will say, “it is for our own good”, or the classic ” if it just saves one life”. To those folks I say, simply, what other things do you wish the government to save us from?
Why not ban two story homes? After all people die every year falling down their stairs. Tens of thousands die in car crashes, why not ban cars? People choke to death, why not mandate that everyone eat pureed food only? Seriously people, either we are free or we are not. And this story is not one that should be told in a land of liberty!
