The Founders Warned Us About Some One Some Time...Could Be Right About Now.

"The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation on the ruins of public liberty.
It serves always to distract the public councils and feeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions.
It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration to confine themselves with in their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all departments in one and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism.
If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed."

George Washington’s Farewell Address


FLAHR in, the name of a gold coin first made in Florence in the 1200's. The name comes from the Latin word for flower. The florin bore the imprint of a lily on one side, and the figure of Saint John the Baptist on the other side.

Law Suit To Determine-Unalienable Rights OR Government Granted Rights!

On June 14, the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF) filed its brief in resistance  to FDA’s motion to dismiss. “FDA made some pretty incredible arguments in their motion to dismiss,” said Fund President Pete Kennedy. “Our research shows that this nation has a long history of consuming raw dairy products and that FDA’s prohibition against taking raw dairy for human consumption across state lines runs counter to that national history,” stated Kennedy.

FTCLDF filed a lawsuit earlier this year to overturn the federal ban that prohibits raw milk for human consumption in interstate commerce. The lawsuit claims that the federal regulations (21 CFR 1240.61 and 21 CFR 131.110) are unconstitutional and outside of FDA’s statutory authority as applied to FTCLDF’s members and the individual plaintiffs named in the suit.

Contrary to FDA’s claims, the Fund argues in its brief that everybody has the right to travel across state lines with raw dairy products in their possession, that everybody has the right to consume the foods of their choice, that parents have the right to feed their children the foods of their choice, and that everybody has the right to be responsible for their own health.

“We believe we are breaking new ground in this case,” said the Fund’s General Counsel Gary Cox, “yet in a way, we are really asking the Court to expressly recognize what our Founding Fathers implied in the Declaration of Independence and in the Constitution.” 

FDA's Views on Freedom of Choice

Here are some of FDA's views expressed in its response on 'freedom of food choice' in general and on the right to obtain and consume raw milk in particular:

"Plaintiffs' assertion of a new 'fundamental right' to produce, obtain, and consume unpasteurized milk lacks any support in law." [p. 4]

"It is within HHS's authority . . . to institute an intrastate ban [on unpasteurized milk] as well." [p. 6]

"Plaintiffs' assertion of a new 'fundamental right' under substantive due process to produce, obtain, and consume unpasteurized milk lacks any support in law." [p.17]

"There is no absolute right to consume or feed children any particular food." [p. 25]

"There is no 'deeply rooted' historical tradition of unfettered access to foods of all kinds." [p. 26]

It's all part of the green agenda; the destroy agriculture part.

I don't agree wiht them 100% as it's written. Parent's have the right to feed their children anything not known to be a potential health hazard is how I'd write it, specifically.
Not saying raw dairy is a health hazard either.

But I whole-heartedly support ANYTHING that tears the reins out of the hands of these Imbeciles who have been turning our life into one big Freakin Day Care Center!
I can't stand it.
It won't end well either. It Can't !

If you watch the video; the guy says that the FDA searched and seized without a warrant! And ask the agent to correct him if he said anything not correct. NO RESPONSE from the agent.
