Moms Plan Raw Milk CivDis

Tomorrow a group of mothers will buy milk in southeast Pennsylvania then caravan to the FDA headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland. Big deal right? Well, actually it kind of is, because the milk is raw, sales of which are “illegal” in Maryland.

Any half-thinking person knows that the simple act of buying raw milk isn’t a crime. There is no victim. It’s a consensual interaction. The thing that sets these mothers apart from Joe Sixpaack is that instead of cowering to arbitrary dictates they stand for what they know is right.

The sooner more of us do so the sooner we can live in a world where people don’t believe text on paper or a piece of metal on their chest legitimizes their actions.

If you’re in the Mid-Atlantic consider joining The Raw Milk Freedom Riders caravan tomorrow. If you’re out of the area watch their livestreaming feed. Hopefully this level of transparency – and commonsensical approach to this issue – will protect them from threats of ransom or cages. If that happens, we’ll update this post and work to get more eyes on their situation.

    You go, girls. The only reason raw milk is illegal is because the politicians who “protect us” are paid off by the big agribusinesses.

    Everybody join in.

    Check out:, where a judge ruled in Wisconsin that at least in that state (pay attention to points 1, 2, 4 and 5):

    “the court denied Plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment, which means the following:

    (1) no, Plaintiffs do no have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a dairy herd;

    (2) no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow;

    (3) no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to board their cow at the farm of a farmer;

    (4) no, Zinniker Plaintiffs’ private contract does not fall outside the scope of the State’s police power;

    (5) no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice; and

    (6) no, the DATCP did not act in an ultra vires manner because it had jurisdiction to regulate the Zinniker Plaintiffs’ conduct.”

    So, according to this state’s court (WI), people have no right to eat and drink what they choose. So much for states’ rights. Federal, state – they’re all about force.

    A while ago I read what I believe would be a good idea for the raw milk peeps. I think it was stated that they did this in Australia.

    Raw milk producers should label milk not for human consumption. It should be sold for other purposes, skin care etc. Then whatever the consumer does with it in their own privacy is on them.

    Even joked that if the man comes they should start pouring the raw milk on themselves.

    I appreciate the battle but I think sometimes damage control may be a better option….

    Milk poisoning…look it up you morons!
