Did you see what the Food and Drug Administration did to an Amish farmer? The Washington Times reported, and I saw it again tonight on the news:
The FDA won its two-year fight to shut down an Amish farmer who was selling fresh raw milk to eager consumers in the Washington, D.C., region after a judge this month banned Daniel Allgyer from selling his milk across state lines and he told his customers he would shut down his farm altogether.
The decision has enraged Mr. Allgyer’s supporters, some of whom have been buying from him for six years and say the government is interfering with their parental rights to feed their children.
But the Food and Drug Administration, which launched a full investigation complete with a 5 a.m. surprise inspection and a straw-purchase sting operation against Mr. Allgyer’s Rainbow Acres Farm, said unpasteurized milk is unsafe and it was exercising its due authority to stop sales of the milk from one state to another.
By the way, the FDA is part of the Dept. of Health and Human Services, the HHS, run by the same Kathleen Sebelius, catholic, who at her master’s command is trying to force distribution of abortifacients on Catholic institutions.
One of your fellow readers here is/was a customer of this Amish farmer. He told me by email that under the cover of darkness the FDA came in armed to raid the man’s farm … at gunpoint. He has 7 children. Nice.
The Amish can’t sell milk across state lines, but the Obama Adminstration can sell guns to drug lords across borders.
The Obama Administration is going to make sure you can’t buy or sell milk the way you want to according to your religious principles, and make damn sure your religious principles are violated when turning contraception into a human right entitlement you have to pay for whether you want to or not.
Imagine what a second term would be like. Without the constraint of facing reelection, how far will he go?
