The Milk Wars

My newfound excitement in finding a few excellent sources for the illicit pale stuff (through my “connection”, aka Mom in upstate N.Y.) has been quickly tempered by yesterday’s news of more harassment and arrests in the government’s War Against Milk.

Is this seriously where the powers that be need to be spending $$ and cracking down?

Could dairy farmers truly be such a threat to national security?

Might Raw Milk be the next Methamphetmine???

Raw milk lovers upset over Amish arrest

It’s the milk spill that crossed state lines.
Brooklyn raw milk enthusiasts are crying over the loss of their supplier – a horse and buggy-driving Amish farmer from Pennsylvania.
Mark Nolt of New Line, Pa., was arrested and shut down last Friday for selling the contraband.
“Oh God. My heart is pounding. I can’t believe what a God—- police state this is,” said one Brooklyn customer who made monthly pickups of raw dairy products from Nolt that the farmer had dropped off in Manhattan by workers.

  1. That is completely nuts. The poor Amish man. He is only supplying something people want. And it’s illegal to transport raw milk across state lines? It is MILK, not CHILD PORNOGRAPHY, for crying out loud.

  2. What is so important about raw milk that the Feds would get involved in it? I’ll give you my opinion. Raw milk is only produced and consumed by individuals who think for themselves. And that thought can take you many places.
