This makes me mad…..

I am allowed to drive a car. I am allowed to use a chain saw. If I so choose, I can climb a mountain. But I am not allowed to drink raw milk (h/t Path to Freedom Journal)….

Richard Hebron, 41, was driving along an anonymous stretch of highway near Ann Arbor, Mich., last October when state cops pulled him over, ordered him to put his hands on the hood of his mud-splattered truck and seized its contents: 453 gal. of milk.

With all the problems in the world, you would think I would find something else to worry about, but this issue never fails to get me mad.

Okay, so drinking raw milk is dangerous, so what?

If I know what I am buying what is it that to you?

You might argue that if I get sick it will impose a burden on society so society has a right to regulate the issue. But I guarantee you that if every one in American drank raw milk; it still would not put the burden on the health care system equal to motorcycles, four wheelers, and other such legal forms of entertainment.

I have drunk a lot of raw milk in my younger days, and I would do it again in heart beat if I had the chance. I know a lot of other people who drank even more raw milk then I did. And I do not know one person who got sick from it.

On the other hand, I know a lot of people who have gotten sick eating at fast food restaurants. Go figure….
