Raw Milk

Some folks are upset with some government agents who raided a seller of raw milk. “We believe this was an ILLEGAL raid being conducted mob-style by government thugs who respect no law and no rights,” they say. Well, yes, I think they should have produced a warrant and read him his rights. But it is illegal in most places to sell raw milk. There are important public health reasons why this is so. I don’t mind the government protecting us from business people who disregard our health and safety. I don’t mind them going after folks who disregard our health in the name of “health.” I just wish they were as aggressive in dealing with violation of health and safety laws by big business.
