Holy Cow! Tyranny at The Dairy


This morning I watched yet another video of something that disturbs me greatly: the events leading up to the "legal" theft of  several tons of cheese produced on a small family farm in Missouri. This, after the cheese had been embargoed for over 2 years and thus was no longer fit for consumption anyway. All of this was done in the name and at the expense of the taxpayers of Missouri, under the guise of  "food safety."

Trending: NJ Governor Signs “Rain Tax” Bill; Residents Can Now BE TAXED When It Rains On Their Property

On Friday, the sad final scene of a two-and-a-half year tragedy will play out for Morningland Dairy. It is the once-thriving raw-cheese-making business that came under government assault in 2010 when two samples of its cheese were said to be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes, even though no illnesses were ever reported.

The Missouri Milk Board and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ganged up on Morningland and obtained a court order to destroy 30,000 pounds of its cheese, implement a recall on many thousands more sold over the previous eight months, and shutter the cheese making business without providing clear guidance on how it could re-start. All this after a three-day inspection by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration failed to turn up any sign of pathogens in its facilities.

Morningland fought the assault, and lost its court case, which is currently on appeal to the state’s supreme court. The embargoed cheese, after two-and-a-half years in a cooler, is pretty much rotten.

I'm not sure the greater public is aware of this, but in some states there is a near war on small dairies who produce and sell raw milk and cheese. I frequently get updates where small farmers are being raided for selling products that both the Founding Fathers and my grandfather were raised upon from their youth.

Personally, I've never drank raw milk, but I want to protect the rights of those who enjoy it and those who produce it as well. I think it's a valid question to ask: Are we really a "free people" when farmers in some states are not allowed to milk their own cows and sell that raw milk to those who enjoy it? I think not.

One of the many complaints against King George III in the Declaration of Independence was that he "erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.”

Mather Byles, a tory clergyman in the colonial era, once asked "Which is better - to be ruled by one tyrant three thousand miles away or by three thousand tyrants one mile away?"

Though Mather Byles was no patriot, the question he posed was valid and seems to have found its fulfillment in our day.

Yet again, the people of this continent have swarms of officers, appointed at all levels of government, sent out to harass the people and eat out of their substance. And now the tyrants can embargo our substance until it spoils and then haul it away garbage trucks.
