“A lot of folks believe that raw milk is bad and big brother should ban it and anyone drinking it, processing it or daring to say anything good about it….”

That’s how Bruce of “Bruce on the Bruce” blog opens his post titled “The Milkman’s being milked and we are being suckered!”. Here’s more from that:

“…Put them in Chains , is the battle cry of our protectors and those who do all for the common good!
