Our rights are at
stake…don’t you care!?!
There is a mess brewing all over this country, and it actually has been for some time. More and more we see our basic rights being taken by a callus and over-reaching government bent on “controlling” things that are not part of there power to control.
my city, Columbia, MO, there is a desire to “attract” businesses by
what is commonly referred to as EEZ, Enhanced Enterprise Zone.
Sounds innocuous enough, right?
Well…before you say that attracting business is a great idea, and
it is, please consider the methods by which they choose to do it.
Mark Flakne, president of
Keep Columbia Free, was a guest speaker at our local Ron Paul meeting this
past Monday evening. He
invited all of us to the City Council meeting, still in session after our
meeting to support those against the “blight” designation and this EEZ
business. And this is not
just local; it’s going on all over the country.
Just to make it simple, it seems local government wants to be able
to take people’s homes and property to give it to local businesses OR
entice new businesses to locate here.
Now, does that really sound like a good plan?

But, there’s even more.
All over the internet yesterday, and going on for a little while
now, is information about the Michigan farmers who have had to “put
down” their hog stock because the MI Department of Natural Resources
designating the breed as feral and a danger to the state.
While that may be true, if you look into it, these farmers don’t
seem to have their herds running willy-nilly all over the state.
They have them well fenced and are in the business of farming or
game hunting. Either way,
it’s not our business, it’s theirs, their right to pursue happiness,
i.e., provide for their own welfare.
Something, last I checked, is part of the very reason this country
Below is the article that
has stirred up such a fuss. It
does a bit of sensationalizing, but then, taking away someone’s right to
make a living is pretty strong stuff!
It would tend to bring out the fire in any of us!

Let’s shift our
attention to the hubbub about raw milk, the farmers and in particular, the
case of Pennsylvania
Amish farmer Dan Allgyer. While
there is much going on in central Missouri right now about raw milk,
because of an E. coli outbreak, they admitted
Tuesday they have not confirmed the source of the outbreak.
According to ProCon.org,
and the CDC’s
own website, there have been approximately 30,000 vaccine adverse
reaction cases reported yearly since 1990, 10- to 15% of which are
considered serious, even life-threatening or causing death.
When searching data on the VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting
System) website, to move on the actual Data page, you must first read and
agree with, the Preceding Statement about VAERS Data, in which it states,
"Underreporting" is one of the main limitations of passive
surveillance systems, including VAERS. The term, underreporting refers to
the fact that VAERS receives reports for only a small fraction of actual
adverse events.” And,
let’s not forget to mention the 5,500 cases reported of a “causal
relationship between vaccinations and autism” filed between 2003 and
According to the CDC’s
own document, Nonpasteurized
Dairy Products. Disease Outbreaks, and State Laws – United States, 1993
to 2006, of the “disease outbreaks” and 121 products observed for
which the pasteurization information was known (both “fluid milk” and
cheese products were involved), 60% of the outbreaks were from
unpasteurized products. While
the report comments on the fact that there were 202 hospitalizations and 2
deaths related to the unpasteurized products, compared to the 37
hospitalizations and 1 death associated with the pasteurized products, it
conveniently fails to comment on their own data that shows there was a 64%
rate of associated illness related to the PASTEURIZED products…out of
4,413 illnesses, 2,842 were contracted FROM the pasteurized products.
Personally, I’d say that 2 deaths from consuming raw milk in 13
years does not make consuming raw milk that dangerous.
In their report about the dangers
of raw milk, the FDA says that since 1998, “more than 800 people”
have become ill from drinking or eating products containing raw milk.
In 2006, ALONE, the CDC
reports there were over 800 cases of “disease outbreaks” from
salmonella acquired from peanut butter or peanuts, yet you don’t here
the FDA telling us not to eat peanuts!
SO, from this quick
search of “official data,” we find there are 3,900 serious adverse
reactions reported PER YEAR from vaccines vs. raw milk and its 1,571
associated illnesses, resulting in 2 deaths over a 13-YEAR period.
And we are going to run around attacking raw milk farmers because
there MIGHT be a problem with the raw milk???
AND, in a free country (this country IS still free, right?),
shouldn’t it be my choice what I consume, or put into my own body?
Yet, we are warned to stay away from raw milk and TOLD that
vaccines are “mandatory” for our children to enter school.
Flashback to the row over
Bass, from Oak Park, MI. Remember
her? After some work resulted
in the digging up of her front yard, Ms Bass decided to plant several
vegetable/herb gardens instead of replacing the grass.
The city decided she was in violation of a code that states there
must be “suitable, live plant material” in your front yard.
To Ms Bass, veggies and herbs ARE “suitable.”
Apparently not so, according to Oak Park, which was threatening her
with 93 days in jail over her veggies…on her own property…in her own
Go back just a little bit
more to the FDA raid on Rawesome Foods, which happened on involve the MO
farmers at Morningland Dairy. This
dairy, in business for 30-plus years with no complaints, was ordered
to destroy their inventory with no
proof of contamination.
We need to understand what is going on here…We are endowed with certain unalienable rights, among which is the right to pursue happiness, which, by definition, means to seek a state of well-being (being healthy), joy, good fortune, PROSPERITY. I think we can all agree this includes being able to do what we like to support our families. We are guaranteed the right to privacy and due process, as well. When they start preventing us from those rights, and we let them, we are, in essence, giving in to their oppression. Is that really what you want to do? Are you really willing to give up the promise for which this country was founded? Are you really willing to let this government become the tyrannical mess from which our founding generation freed us?
It behooves us, as the population of this country, to stand up for the rights of everyone. If you aren’t willing to speak out for someone, or support their rights in some way, what happens when YOU need the support? Don’t you understand what made this country so great from the beginning? The promise of a population free from tyranny and oppression at the hands of a despotic government bent on keep us under their heel! Please don’t tell me our founding generation died in vain for this country they so believed in, a country that could truly bring a new way of life to the planet, if only its own people would realize the importance of what is going on…I don’t think I could take it!
