Raw Milk Acquittal: A Victory for Freedom

Good news for this farmer of the future and raw milk!

"In these days of creeping tyranny – some would say galloping tyranny – whenever freedom wins a battle, it’s time for a celebration.

So pour yourself a champagne glass full of healthful, delicious, GMO-free raw milk, and raise a toast to Vernon Hershberger, who was just acquitted by a jury on three of four counts of “foodcrime.”

Hershberger can now return to his farm and continue producing healthy food for his neighbors. The jury’s verdict sent an unmistakeable message: When a farmer like Hershberger wants to run a cooperative food club, and provide his neighbors with raw milk and other non-Monsanto, farm-grown foods without a retail license, he is acting within his legitimate rights. In other words, both raw milk and direct-to-consumer food clubs have been effectively legalized in Wisconsin."...

One caveat though is the stupid jurors convicted him on one count of violating the holding order placed on his products after he was raided by the food gestapo which the judge could give him up to a year in prison and $10,000 fine... Idiots! So if the Judge is in the factory farms pockets he will be harsh and effectively put this guy out of business with a harsh sentence.

What the fuck is wrong with people they (the jurors) are smart enough to know the raid was unjustified but still too stupid to realize if the raid was unjustified then so was the holding order as a result of the raid. Fear of disobeying unjust authority runs far too deep thanks to generations of indoctrination... Sigh!

Here's to hoping the Judge does the right thing and suspends what ever sentence he gives...

Chalk one up to the Little

Chalk one up to the Little Guy and Food Freedom! Thank you Mr Hershberger for standing up to the Police State. It's a shame Mr Hershberger was still convicted of the one count. this should have never happened. It is so disgusting to watch the Gulag commit tyranny over family farms. Grrrrrrr.

If the food Nazi's feel like their heads are going to explode, they should go outside, take a deep breath, and get a good healthy lungful of aluminum dioxide falling from the chemtrail filled skies. That should fix them right up.

oh for goodness sakes

you really think if the United States Air Force, Department of Defense, or the United States government were to release a document on controlling the weather by 2025 they would have kept it classified?

here come the down votes for asking reasonable questions.

Wonderful to hear for the future of raw milk!

On the other hand, I hope the judge does suspend his sentence at least, quite ridiculous, indeed.

If not,

We need to know who the judge is. I'm working on a list of tyranny supporters.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.
