It's for your own good

Here's a few quotes that ought to bump your blood pressure nicely (emphasis mine):

"Plaintiffs' assertion of a new 'fundamental right' to produce, obtain, and consume unpasteurized milk lacks any support in law."
"There is no absolute right to consume or feed children any particular food."
"Plaintiffs' assertion of a 'fundamental right to their own bodily and physical health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families' is similarly unavailing because plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish."
Got that? You have no right to choose your own diet, or your child's. You have no right to produce any particular food item.

And the Feds - via HHS, USDA, and various state agencies - are doing just that. Armed raids - over milk.

There's a trailer for the documentary Farmageddon here.

I saw that documentary and I loved it. I tend to agree with a lot of what was said but quite frankly couldn't get the thought out of my head that a bunch of these people are a bunch of liberals griping about government regulations infringing on their right to make a personal choice.

I could have cut the irony with a knife.
