Judge: You don’t have a right to provide for yourself

Want to get pissed off at your government?  The following information comes from a news article and recounts the absolute insanity of a Wisconsin judge!  Here is part of his ruling about whether people have the right to keep their own cows and use the milk from their own cows:

(1) no, plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a diary (sic) herd;

(2) no, plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow;

(3) no, plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to board their cow at the farm of a farmer;

(4) no, the Zinniker plaintiffs’ private contract does not fall outside the scope of the state’s police power;

(5) no, plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice;

Regarding another lawsuit, this one in Iowa: “Attorneys for the federal government have argued in a lawsuit still pending in federal court in Iowa that individuals have no ‘fundamental right’ to obtain their food of choice.”

“There is no ‘deeply rooted’ historical tradition of unfettered access to foods of all kinds,” states the document signed by U.S. Attorney Stephanie Rose, assistant Martha Fagg and Roger Gural, trial attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice.

“Plaintiffs’ assertion of a ‘fundamental right to their own bodily and physical health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families’ is similarly unavailing because plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish,” the government has argued.

“The interest claimed by plaintiffs could be framed more narrowly as a right to ‘provide themselves and their families with the foods of their own choice,'” the government document states. But the attorneys say that right doesn’t exist.

Federal Food Police Hunting Tony the Tiger

The federal government is out of control.  The Constitution, in case you didn’t already know, was written to limit the power and authority of the federal government.  The federal government rarely pays heed to the Constitution anymore unless they can find a twisted way to make it limit the liberties of the citizens of America.

The federal government is involved in auto manufacturing, has taken over the health care industry with an eye to destroying private insurance companies, and has taken over the student loan industry.  It has passed a law banning incandescent light bulbs, and now the federal government wants to kill Tony the Tiger unless the makers of Frosted Flakes change the recipe.

See the full story here.

You know.  I keep looking through the Constitution, and I just don’t see where the federal government has in its 18 authorized duties to poke its nose into manufacturing automobiles, producing food, loaning money, buying mortgages, etc.  The citizens of the U.S.A. are insane if they don’t stand up against unconstitutional laws.   Get loud and protest if necessary.  Your senators and representative should know your name because you contact them often to tell them to vote against this or that unconstitutional bill.

The federal government has its place, its duties.  It has far exceeded the authority granted it in the Constitution.  Subsidiarity.  Remember that word.  States and individuals have most of the authority and rights in the Constitution.  Let’s let states govern their citizens.  Let’s restrain the federal government as our Founders intended.  They were well aware of the consequences of having an unrestrained government.  It leads quickly to tyranny.
