Farmer’s Daughter talks about raw milk

Here’s an excerpt from a recent post on “Tales of a Farmer’s Daughter” blog, along with a University of Waterloo radio interview with Mark McAfee:

“An editorial in Tuesday’s Ontario Farmer addresses the issue of farmers drinking raw milk. The author, Paul Mahon, says there is a contradiction in the dairy industry as farmers are permitted to drink their own raw milk, but they aren’t permitted to sell raw milk to consumers.

There has been controversy concerning the sale of raw milk for years and it seems the debate is not over. Mahon says, “If there are people who believe that unpasteurised milk is for them, they should be able to legally get it for themselves.”

In some aspects, I agree since my family drinks raw milk from our farm and no one in my family has ever gotten sick from drinking raw milk. In fact, twenty-four years ago when my oldest brother was a baby, my mom asked the doctor if she should pasteurize the milk for him.

The doctor said she should pasteurize milk for him until he was a year old and then he could drink raw milk….”

    Follow the money! Follow the control of freedom! That is what everything is about. Our freedom to choose and who will get the money.
    Bearaucracy has only one mission –to keep the rich rich and the poor under control. Is that 2? Oh well you know what it is all about. . We give them permission to do this and if not the present beaurocrats then the next lot . Power and greed in any avenue of life breeds more power and greed. Read your history. All that we can hope for is to hang on for as long as we can on a personal level.
    No-one hears what they cannot concieve of, everyone hears what they need to hear and when they can handle that knowledge. I pray the youngsters will not repeat our ignorance to allow this to happen. Our generation was motivated with fear and ignorance. We blamed rather than took responsibility. Come young champions, rally for us, save yourselves and the ones to come. I Believe!

    “The money powers prey on the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. The banking powers are more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. They denounce as public enemies all who question their methods or throw light upon their crimes”.

    I think that the various levels of government (whom I’ve worked for in the past) are edging into panic from the expressions of LIBERTY being made by the people under their thumbs. Be it raw milk, tea parties or anti-corporate anarchists, the threat to their control has driven the governments to embark on this Stalinist style attack on our freedoms. We are undermining their authority and control, keep digging!
