Rock On, Raw Milk Freedom Riders!
Today's the big day: Raw Milk Freedom Riding moms from across the U.S. -- along with a few of our raw milk freedom fighting stars -- are drinking milk on the FDA steps... right about NOW. Wish I could be there!!!
I'm in love with peaceful civil disobedience these days, even when the misbehavers are not exactly on my wave length. When legislators won't listen, ya gotta get their attention and inform them that this ain't going to go their way anymore. We are done with oppression.
If you want to listen live to the activities, click here! I'm listening now. Right now, Michael Schmidt (in his fifth week of a hunger strike) is talking about raw milk, the political situation, how we can collectively take back our natural right to consume the foods we want.
Michael just said, "Forget fear." I'm all over that!
Raw milk won't be illegal for much longer.
They simply can't arrest us all. We outnumber them.
In case you are on the fence about raw milk, still under the spell of propaganda brought to you by corporate-controlled msm "news" outlets, here's a quickie education in less than 200 words, reprinted with permission of the author, Mark McAfee of Organic Pastures, found in the recent Weston A Price quarterly (which I devour when it arrives):
DECLINE IN MILK CONSUMPTON
In a recent article in the publication Progressive Dairyman, the author ponders the relentless fall in fluid milk consumption in America. What he does not mention is the fact that fluid pasteurized milk is listed as the top most allergenic food in America by the Mayo Clinic and others. It all comes down to simple science. When bacteria are killed during pasteurization, the resulting pieces of dead bacteria are foreign protein wastes that our bodies react against. MAST cells release their histamines, asthma bronchial spasm occurs, mucus is released that creates the bed for ear infections, and allergies rage. When doctors tell their patients not to drink milk, they are referring to milk that is pasteurized (and ultrapasteurized).
In California, organic raw milk is sold in four hundred stores and consumed by about sixty to seventy thousand people every week. They report few allergies and in fact the opposite is true—most allergies and asthma improve dramatically with raw milk. This highly beneficial raw milk physiology was demonstrated by the peer reviewed and published PARSIFAL study of fifteen thousand kids in EU who drank raw farm fresh milk.
The dairy industry needs to connect to their consumers and listen to them and their physiologic and digestive needs. The industry needs to fire the processors and their big-lie campaigns. The propaganda does not work anymore because the human body does not lie to its owner. The science project performed every single time someone drinks pasteurized milk comes through within minutes with the irrefutable study result. Either it is mucus-forming from MAST cell release of histamines or it is lactose intolerance. Neither mucus from histamines nor lactose intolerance are associated with raw milk consumption.

Want a little more from Mark? Read this, too -- Mark's an excellent educator on the topic!
In the meantime, while you are getting an education (because I know you don't want to just believe the propaganda without doing your own research), find a raw milk farmer, buy a gallon of delicious fresh raw milk, drink it, give it a go. Raw milk is a super-food. Ya know, our ancestors drank raw milk and flourished.
