Back In The Day – which, in this case, is to say the Pre-Atkins Era – the Sibling Unit and I used to purchase homemade whole-wheat bread from some friends of ours. Good ingredients, improved our friends’ financial situation – and the bread tasted pretty damned good, too.
Naturally, the Imperial Socialists in the Al-Obambi excuse-for-a-government can’t stand anything like that, so they’re going to do what Nazis always do – crack down on it.
Attorneys for the federal government have argued in a lawsuit pending in federal court in Iowa that individuals have no “fundamental right” to obtain what food they choose.
The brief was filed April 26 in support of a motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund over the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s ban on the interstate sale of raw milk.
“There is no ‘deeply rooted’ historical tradition of unfettered access to foods of all kinds,” states the document signed by U.S. Attorney Stephanie Rose, assistant Martha Fagg and Roger Gural, trial attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice.
Would you just like to bet your sweet asses on that, Steffi, honey? I tend to think that you might find a lot of farmers – not to mention folks who grow tomatoes in their backyards – who might see things a little differently
Hell – Her Irascibleness once tried to grow a mini-garden out in our backyard Back In The Day – and I’d just have loved to see your little jackboots come try to do something about that.
“Plaintiffs’ assertion of a ‘fundamental right to their own bodily and physical health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families’ is similarly unavailing because plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish,” the government has argued.
And the counter-argument goes up: BULLSHIT.
I’ll eat what I want, as much as I want, when I want, and just what do you food nazis think you’re going to fucking do about it?
Bring it on, Steffie, Marfie & Roggie.
Make sure your HMO is paid up first. Because I’ll probably have a few million folks with me on this one
