Got (Raw) Milk? … Get Arrested.

Another milk hoist by the state:

Two undercover investigators with the Springfield-Greene County Health Department allegedly caught two of the couple’s daughters on two occasions selling a gallon of milk each from a Springfield parking lot.

Ohhhh, god forbid the violence! Horrors!The shocking crimes being committed nowadays!

This is just another score in the government’s campaign against raw milk, or unprocessed foods of any sort. You see, selling unprocessed foods means that you remove giganta-corporate interests from the picture, and sellers and buyers willingly transact with one another outside of the statist framework that binds us all to over-processed, undernourished foods that make billions for the largest companies in America and the world.

The state will never allow a bunch of overalls-clad “hicks” – who sincerely cater to their customers with the products they want – to take away from the racket of the huge agricultural interests whose businesses are subsidized and propped up by the state so they can reap huge profits from selling you processed garbage that is a detriment to your health.

    2 quotes from the comments that followed this article struck me:

    “I think it was H. L. Mencken who once said that in America they go after the S.O.B.’s first. And nobody cares about them. They establish bad precedents on them, and then they go after the rest of us.” — Allan Dershowitz

    “Overload the police with victimless crimes and other minutiae and eventually only creeps and bullies remain cops.” –Rick Gaber

    And people still think we’re in the “Land of the Free”? Wake up America.

    I think Whole Foods sells unpasteurized milk. Of course, there’s some Nanny State label on it that says something to the effect, “Not Recommended for Human Consumption”.

    The food-beverage-industrial-complex is a very powerful one.

    My daughter drinks raw milk and has done very well on the formula we make from it.  The hype against it is just that – hype.  

    Every day I read that agriculture is a great investment, but I can’t bring myself to invest in anything having do with the large corporations you mention.

    Another thought on the topic: Aren’t these buyers and sellers freely entering into contract with each other? Give me your milk product and I’ll pay you for it. I thought our government was supposed to protect private contracts? Who knew?
