ommerce Clause Judge says NO Right to Drink your Cow's Milk [THIS IS AN UNALIENABLE RIGHT TO LIFE] Ever since the Economic Downturn, more and more people have been turning towards home grown gardens and their local communities in order to support themselves and plan for their future and survival.
[THIS IS TYRANNY] The government has been increasingly less and less supportive of the small american farmer and independant self sustaining home gardener.
One of the worst things that they have been doing is trying to limit the sale of Raw Milk to the general population. In order to find an excuse to do so, they have envoked the "Commerce Clause" with which they can regulate Inter-State Commerce and put a stop to Raw Milk Sales.
The Commerce Clause (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3). The clause states that the United States Congress shall have power "To regulate Commerce.
However, up until now, anyone could still drink the milk of their own cow.. Until this Judge came along...

Those raw milk proponents advocating “teach, teach, teach” may want to enroll Wisconsin Judge Patrick J. Fiedler in their first class–in the kindergarten section.
In response to a request from the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, the judge issued a clarification of his decision last week regarding his assessment of the constitutionality of food rights. The judge expanded on his original statement that such constitutional issues are “wholly without merit.”
He explained that the FTCLDF arguments were “extremely underdeveloped.” As an example, he said the plaintiffs’ use of the Roe v Wade abortion rights case as a precedent does “not explain why a woman’s right to have an abortion translates to a right to consume unpasteurized milk…This court is unwilling to declare that there is a fundamental right to consume the food of one’s choice without first being presented with significantly more developed arguments on both sides of the issue.” Gee, I thought they both had to do with the right to decide what to do with your own body.
As if to show how pissed he was at being questioned, he said his decision translates further that “no, Plaintiffs to not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a dairy herd;
“no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow;”
And in a kind of exclamation point, he added this to his list of no-nos: “no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice…”
You have to wonder if maybe even the regulators are getting a tad uncomfortable with the rulings coming from the nation’s judiciary on food rights. Many of these individuals, biased as they are against raw milk, dabble in farming to some extent, or grew up on farms. This judge has gone way beyond what many of them have come to assume–that everyone has the right to own a cow and consume its milk Even in places that ban raw milk sales, there’s nearly always a provision in state law that anyone who owns a cow has the right to consume its milk.
