  1. wonderful bit of irony : the icon for the Wisconsin Raw Milk freedom riders – the Statue of Liberty holding up a bottle of raw milk. In his book Rulers of Evil, Tupper Saussy has a photo of ths same spirit in the form of a statue of Persephone, daughter of Jupiter and goddess of the dead, reigning over the united states from atop the Capitol at Washington DC.

    on Feb 22 the Raw milk freedom riders will be forming-up in front of the Capitolium … shrine to Jupiter in Wisconsin … on the steps of which, as his moral authority for defying the state, Vernon Hershberger will be using the writings of ‘a bunch of misogynistic bronze-age sheepherders’ – I am so looking forward to how this Smack-Down of the gods plays on natioal tv!

    in the Book which the Amish pretend is the ultimate reference for their theology, the script calls for an innocent lamb to be sacrificed ; guess what, Vern? In this little made-for-media psychodrama … you’re it

    As you well know, Gordon, things don’t always play out according to the script. What is this book that the Amish base their worship on? Aren’t they Christians, and don’t they read the bible like other Christians do?

    Your interpretation here is all very James Shelby Downard, but I’m not convinced it’s the most real dimension of this “psychodrama”, as you call it.

      I actually like your new approach Mr. Bovine – letting him post so he can’t claim he’s being unfairly excluded, but at the same time keeping a close eye on his comments and drawing attention to any of his BS.
      He’ll definitely keep you busy! 😉
      I enjoy all your rebuttals. Thanks for taking the time to write them.

      • what you wouldn’t know = you poor little adolescent mentality, is that the Moderator is hiding half of what I say – exemplifying perfectly the red fascist approach = put up part of the case / censor what doesn’t fit the dogma, thus presenting the appearance of freedom of expression hiding the concepts which would make you actually think

        Josep Stalin said “ideas are weapons. Why would we let our enemies have them?”

      • thebovine

        Thank you Jenny. I’m glad to know that you appreciate the effort to be more “inclusive” of fringe viewpoints.


    Mr. Bovine deserves the “Order of Raw Milk “(if not Canada) many times over !
