Is there a bottom of the Pit of Leftist Lunacy? Maybe not, I mean consider this
When you think of milk, what first comes to your mind? If you’re a millennial, you probably think of strong bones, Got Milk? commercials, or maybe eating your favorite cereal while watching cartoons on a Saturday morning.
What about racism? White nationalism? If you’re having trouble finding the connection between these institutions and milk, you’re not alone. You, along with the rest of the nation, have been so accustomed to hearing the benefits of milk that you probably didn’t even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts.
It may not surprise you that the United States was founded on racism. That every institution we uphold has racist roots that are sometimes difficult to catch and even harder to fight against. This phenomenon affects our voter ID laws, state testing and, yes, even our federal dietary guidelines. But how can our health guidelines, a system meant to be built upon scientific fact alone, have racist messages? Where there is a deep-rooted tradition to suppress an entire race’s existence, there’s a way.
The federal endorsement of milk in American diets contributes to the problem by uncritically pushing people to drink milk, despite the potential detriment it has on non-white people’s health.
Our current federal dietary guidelines urge people to drink three cups of milk a day, according to the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The main health benefit of milk is to guard against osteoporosis, a disease that weakens your bones — hence the “stronger bones” rhetoric. While this is a very practical health benefit, osteoporosis affects Africans at a significantly lower rate than it does most Americans, according to an article on Mother Jones.
Egads! Honestly who thinks this stuff up? What type of person enjoys finding racism everywhere everyday? Who is so demented that they are only happy when they are pretending to be a victim? Leftists of course! Because, leftism is an ideology for pessimists, bitter folks, and malcontents.
Why Milk Could Hit $8 A Gallon – Newser
If Congress doesn’t get its act together soon, old laws will cost all of America dearly – we’re speaking, of course, of the Milk Cliff. If legislators don’t take a break from fiscal cliff negotiations/posturing and pass a new farm bill by Jan. 1, the government will be forced to abide by a 1949 law that would force it to buy milk at roughly double the current market price, the New York Times points out. The inflated price tag would spur dairy farmers to sell to the government instead of the commercial market. That would lead to shortages that would push milk prices as high as $6 to $8 a gallon, explains the Times, up from a current average of $3.65.
That new government price would be calculated in part using 1949’s almost entirely by-hand milk production costs. Today, milk is much cheaper to produce, so farmers would reap a windfall profit. But it would also drive producers of products like butter, cheese, and yogurt, to find an alternative, like imported milk. “It would be short-term euphoria followed by a long hangover,” says one dairy farmer. “I don’t think customers… are going to pay double what they are paying now for dairy products.”

Silverfiddle is a truly insightful writer, and sums up my feelings in issues quite often. Here he sums up my feelings about liberty
Marry 15 gay lovers, smoke dope all day, own 100 guns. I don’t care what you do with your life so long as it doesn’t impinge on my liberties and the government doesn’t confiscate my money to pay for your mistakes. Buy raw milk, sell raw milk. Start a business this afternoon based upon a brainstorm you got this morning. Do it without teams of lawyers, and hire people without the bureaucratic red tape.
Already, most Americans hand over about half their income to government. Just for fun, try to name a few areas of life that aren’t taxed or regulated by the government. The government can take away your children based merely on assertions of abuse, or take your property and give it to a developer. You cannot build anything or remodel anything in your home, start a business, hire someone, drive anywhere, buy a firearm, make a political donation or do much of anything without being subject to myriad rules, regulations, taxes, fees, inspections, permits. (Scrooge-Like Predictions)
So my liberal friends, if you want to attract people to your cause, drop the big government statism, stop begging for “free” crap, and start walking and talking like Billy Jack. Like those wild horses galloping across the western plains, people gotta be free.
Yep! That sums it up for me
