• Should The U.S. Government Allow You To Drink Raw Milk?

    Now I have to tell you before we begin that I grew up on raw milk. I have also recently found a place where I can buy raw milk and cream today, and obviously I believe that I have the right to ingest any raw milk and the products made from it.  The key word here you will notice is RIGHT.

    Do I know that there is always the chance of running into a problem with raw milk as well as with organic products?  Of course. Do I think that I have the RIGHT to take my chances while avoiding the problems that I know come with the chemicals in processed food?  I absolutely do.

    So what’s the problem? Oh, just the usual…governmental interference in my life when I don’t need the help.  According to Mike Adams, Editor of NaturalNews.com, not a single Democrat and only fifteen Republicans voted in favor of ending FDA raids on raw milk farmers. If you have not been keeping up with these, raids I’ve posted a couple of links below to get you started.

    For now, here’s where we seem to be:

    U.S. Senator Rand Paul introduced an amendment that would have ended armed FDA raids on raw milk farmers. No Democrats voted for this and only fifteen Republicans believe that we have the RIGHT to choose what we put in our bodies. Instead, they choose to criminalize “real” food.

    Out of our 100 Senators, only the following stood with Rand Paul on the issue of raw milk and “health food” supplements. (Of course, the government has been trying to get its fist into the supplement market for years.)

    Kelly Ayotte R-NH)
    John Boozman (R-AR)
    Jim Coburn (R-OK)
    John Cornyn (R-TX)
    Mike Crapo (R-ID)
    Jim DeMint (R-SC)
    Mike Johanns (R-NE)
    Ron Johnson (R-WI)
    Mike Lee (R-UT)
    Rand Paul (R-KY)
    Jim Risch (R-ID)
    John Thune (R-SD)
    Pat Toomey (R-PA)
    David Vitter (R-LA)
    Roger Wicker (R-MS)

    If you agree with the vote of the above, they need to hear from you. Obviously, if you do not agree, they need to hear as well. I suppose in that old nutshell, the issue is simply whether you believe we have the right to buy milk, eggs, etc. that has not been processed. If you do, now would be the time to speak up. There are only fifteen elected officials on your side.

    And again, I ask you: Should the U.S. Government “allow” you to drink raw milk…or would you like to make your own decisions on these types of questions?

      Not only are they coming down on raw milk, I can assure you we will see a huge tax on sugar products and candies in the very near future. Government is so good for us.

      I remember so well, just a little girl, standing close by my Daddy as he milked “the” cow. She looked like a jersey, beautiful, and her breath was so sweet and her eyes and eyelashes were so pretty. Yes, we had raw milk, and so did all of the people that came before us. I can just see that milk, frothy in the bucket, and Daddy would take it into the house, Mama would strain the milk, and then we had butter, buttermilk and good cream to use over blackberries. And when the time came to make ice cream, oh, what joy. Daddy would go to milk the cow earlier than usual, to have plenty of milk for the ice cream. Lots of times, we had family or neighbors visiting, and while the men sat on the front porch turning the ice cream freezer, Daddy would take a set of bed springs and a mattress and put in in the front yard, and all of us kids would lie on the mattress and look up at the milky way and try to count the stars. We had better enjoy those memories, if the government has its way, there will be no more fresh milk available, and the next step will be to stop us from raising our own vegetables. No more roadside stands with fresh blackeyes, squash, okra and tomatoes. Maybe then we will be forced to buy vegetables and other items from Mexico or South America, drenched with DDT and all of those other bad things that we are forbidden to us. Just check your grocery story today.

        I agree, Missy in that I believe there is more danger in the chemicals than I do in the “natural,” at least for me. Of course, my immune system can’t stand up to the chemicals so I have been eating this way for a very long time.
