Wisconsin Bull

October 5, 2011 by  

Wisconsin Bull

A Wisconsin judge has ruled that people in that State have no “fundamental right” to consume any food, own or use dairy cows or consume the milk their cows produce, without government permission.

The ruling from Judge Patrick J. Fiedler was in response to a suit filed by the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund on behalf of Zinniker Family Farm and several other farms against the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.

Wisconsin is one of the most restrictive States in the nation where the consumption of raw milk is concerned. Raw milk sales are prohibited, but private cow share agreements (where people purchase shares of their own cows) are exempted.

A copy of the judge’s ruling can be read here. On page four the judge writes:

  • “Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a dairy herd.”
  • “Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow.”
  • “Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to board their cow at the farm of a farmer.”
  • “Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice.”

This ruling begs the question: What country does this fascist judge think he lives in?

    The Judge writes:
    ““Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice.””

    Let us then feed the judge just bread and water. After all WE are the government and he is a servant so lets see how he likes it.

    • Ted Crawford

      I agree Vicki! John Jay seemingly forsaw something like this and spoke out against it “The Law is intended to serve the people, not the people to serve the law”

      • Jeffrey A. Williams

        Here Here Ted! BTW it Jon Jay not John Jay.

    • lkar

      What is ironic is that you cannot consume your own milk, but you are entitled to your own sexual preference. I would venture that this same judge would be against any government intrusion ito homosexual rights, abortion rights, and illegal alien rights!

      • Rusticus

        You are incapable of understanding the simplest distinctions. You should have your keepers read you less complicated material.

          it appears that you cannot cnnect the dots.old west justice should be meted out here.this judge is ruling by the communist manifesto.

          • karel Eekels

            and to make it worse, he is getting paid for it in addition by the people of Wisconsin!

      • http://personallibertydigest michael

        Where did this judge come from… The USSR? Can’t drink my home made milk but I can sleep with any person I wish….. What BS…. Legalize fagets and lesbian to get mairred but not allow to drink ur own milk…. Them queers should help us with our freedom being infringed on….

    • Jeff

      Don’t give him bread the contents is grown by farmers.

    • Lost in Paradise

      I bet he would eat lead reeeal nice!

    • Thomas B

      No let’s not even give him bread and water. Let’s have him ask we the people for permission to eat, and then seize his assets as a communist fruitcake, then put him in prison and let him starve to death. That’s what the mutant activist judges and politicians have in mind for us once they have taken over completely and start burning us Christians in the furnaces. That is truly what we are up against unfortunately…they are just creeping along incrementally. It wouldn’t be a crime to do this to him. It’s going to be kill or be killed.

      • eddie47d

        Paranoia at it’s finest Thomas. “Christians burned at the stake”. Historically it was Christians who were burning other Christians they disagreed with. Should rules be relaxed on milk and dairy products for personal consumption? Yes I believe so as long as there is a disclaimer on the product that you eat or drink and do so at your own risk. The same with any food,beer,vitamins(herbal)that you grow or consume on your own or are willing to sell. Like any product buyer beware and it should be packaged to say so. We had a Listeria outbreak in this country and 20 have died and about 200 are still sick so will those farmers take responsibility for making one sick if they allow someone to consume a bad product? Pasteurized/Homogenized products should remain in all supermarkets to protect the consumer and the business.

        • Kat

          If the farmers are responsible for the listeria outbreak then maybe car makers should be responsible for all traffic accidents, ladder makers should be responsible for everyone who falls off, liquor distillers should be responsible for every drunk..well, you get the idea. I do not believe in willful negligence but I often wonder where these food borne outbreaks really originate. Obviously, the listeria didn’t grow on the food. Who put it there? That is what we need to ask. I also think, before we go hog wild finger pointing at the farmer’s responsibility to protect the consumer, we need to assess actual risk. The three things I mentioned cause FAR more deaths than tainted lettuce, milk, melons, etc. Yet the government isn’t pulling out all the stops to “protect” us from those evils. Look at legal drugs and our hospital care. How many deaths are caused by those entities. Is anyone shutting them down? I think we need to ask why the frenzy concerning raw milk and why the attack on the “little guy”.

          • Searcher

            What is the big fuss about raw milk? Hell I drank it from birth until I was 18, sometimes direct from the cow. I’m 76 now and in good health. And buy shares in your own cow? What kind of BS is this? The original cows in a farmers herd were most likely purchased, and then the herd was expanded through breeding, and now to consume the milk, or meat from that cow he has to buy it again. Who the hell does he have to pay, himself? One of the most ridiculous decisions I have ever seen handed down by a judge.

        • Thomas B

          We shouldn’t have the right to consume the foods of our choice without governmnet permission? And you agree with that? This is the socialist/communist vine creeping into our lives, as is their custom, to be incrementally snaeky. It has not to do with Christian paranoia, but anyone who is a Cgristian in this day and age knows quite well that we are the targets for elimination by the commie/gay/occult/mutants who push for the new world order. The new world order is/will be run by the gay/communist/occultists simliar to the nazis. This is how it is, not paranoia; and I’m helping to get the word out because alot of the innocent don’t know that the enemy is on attack throughout our system..I’m especially telling them to watch for creeps like you who will try to disuade them from recognizing the enemy. I won’t be able to stop us…you are born to fail.

        • Karolyn

          But those who choose to drink raw milk should have thr right to do so. I am sure most of the population would not. Eeeew! Right out of the cow?? I know people who will not eat eggs straight from the chicken! They will only eat them from the grocery store. Figure that one out!

        • metalflyer11

          Pasteurization & Homogenization to keep products safe? You say this because the FDA says so? Better educate yourself about what these processes do to food, especially milk.

            Pasteurization & Homogenization to keep products safe? You say this because the FDA says so? Better educate yourself about what these processes do to food, especially milk.

            Well for one thing, the processes take all the natural vitamins and minerals out of the milk then what do they do? Replace them with synthetic vitamins and minerals.. Go figure.

        • MNIce

          Umm, eddie47d, Christians were first burned at the stake by pagan emperors in Rome. Haven’t you heard the etymology of “Roman candle”?

          I do agree that it is a bit of a stretch to go from usurping raw judicial power over slurping raw milk to persecuting Christians. (The usurping and slurping are both potentially dangerous, but the former is far worse than the latter because it cannot be mitigated by simple sanitation.)

        • DeJay

          We have a rotten self serving government. Pastuerization destroys the Life Force of most if not all liquids and makes them dead food. Add to that the genetically modified produce which if only is making farmers forced to buy their seed from Monsanto. Then some foods are radiated which also make them dead food. Can you read between the lines?? They’re trying to make us sick and die so the drug companies can thrive. The judge is blantly a communist and needs to be stripped of his power like a previous comment about the judge eating lead.

    • Kate8

      Vicki – What would logically follow this judges words are that we “don’t have the fundamental right to life”.

      The right to healthful food, water and essentials of life, and our ability to acquire and sustain these things through our own labor, comes from our very existence upon this Earth, from Creator, and not from any puffed-up, self-proclaimed little demi-god who sold his soul to the schoolyard bully because he’s holding the biggest stick…

      How long are we going to keep bowing to a system which has utterly turned on us? Do we really think we can enter the courts of the enemy and find justice?

        this judge need’s to be disbared tired feathered and put out of this country and sent to CHINA he and all the reast that feels the same way my great grand parents drank raw milk made there own raw butter rasied trere own meat and butcherd it cured it raised there own vegtiables caned them and they hardly ever was sick and lived to be 100 years old and worked and lived off the farm products they even made there own flour corn meal sorghum they where up at 5am every morning fed the teams got them ready to start work milked the cows that was 7days a week whent to bed around 9’30pm or 10pm and died in there sleep now all we got are people that can’t live with out stores

      Vicki, why the bread he does not have the right even to water, unless the government (WE THE PEOPLE) gives it to him? I would not give him the time of day! Lock him up, he is insane!

    • MNIce

      I suggest we let the judge live on gulag soup for a while. I understand it was very fashionable in eastern Siberia between 1918 and 1991.

      Gulag soup recipe:
      1 head of cabbage
      40 liters of water

      Heat water to boiling. Throw in cabbage and cook until tender. Take out the cabbage and feed it to the guards. Everybody else gets one bowl of soup apiece.

    • Norman from Michigan

      This should be advertised in the Judge’s local newspaper and any other public journal in his jourisdiction every day starting 4 weeks before the next election for that Judge’s position. The voters will get him out for sure.

    • Vic Bailey

      We have to get rid of these Socialist asses before they start charging us to breathe! In Utah I heard that it is illegal to collect rainwater? How much more are the American people going to take until we clean house from the local all the way up to the federal crooks that are destroying our Constitution and our rights? NOW, would be fine with me! Semper Fi.

    This is totally unconstitutional. I think this judge has a screw loose. The people of Wisconsin really need to organize around this.

    • Karolyn

      Oh, too bad, the link for response is for Wisconsin residents. I certainly hope any readers from Wisconsin will use it.

        I did see a few comments on the net that he is a Democrat – I am not absolutely certain – it’s hard to find the basics on him with all the publicity out there right how – but A Dane County Judge in Wisconsin — most likely a Democrat — :)

    • Dale

      Karolyn, This Judge doesn’t have a screw loose, All his screws are missing

      • Bruce

        Hi Dale,

        No in fact this judge is ruling on what I keep telling all of you, he has not only the right to make such a rule he can also make any ruling he wants.
        WHY?

        “”The Constitution has not been in use in over 150 years.”” 1860 / 1868 / 1871.

        If you all want to fix the problem’s we face, as many of you ask well how do we fix it? >> Its very simple;<<
        ""REPEAL the 14th Amendment"" as it makes you a Slave to the state of the "Corporation of DC."
        If you all would please explore this, and this is the hard part you must "COMPRHEND" what the 14th Amendmebt means, then you would all understand that {the Constitution nor the Bill or Rights applies to YOU.}

        • Kate8

          Bruce – Good luck. Who is Congress is going to step forward and push to repeal the 14th Amendment?

          If it was an illegal Act in the first place, then it is null and void, right? Are we bound by illegal, unConstitutional Acts of Congress just because they say so? I would seem that most people believe that we are. But that would put us at the mercy of a government that is supposed to be limited…by…US. Meaning, they are ALL POWERFUL.

          Does any of this make sense to anyone? What if we, as a PEOPLE, declare our right and intention to ignore and void all ACTS and STATUTES which are unauthorized by SUPREME LAW and therefore cannot bind us?

          Perhaps we should all turn in our SS#s and declare our intention to end our slavery to DC and live free and sovereign. Sure, they’ll probably send in troops (UN troops, at that), but they are going to do that, anyway, at some point because we’ve given ourselves over to them by our compliance.

  • Cannon 12pounder

    Sounds like the judge needs a little fertilizer around his home to grow his own food. I would not sell him any. About 10foot high surrounding his place should do the trick.

  • http://none Houston Williams

    Pathetic, but please remember that while your article castigates the judge, as it certainly should, you
    have to ask “WHY” does this man comport himself this way? Is it just possible that he is serving the
    interests of the milk industry, which in turn presumes to control the government and the courts to do
    their dirty work? I dont presume to know the answer to this but my suspicions run very high. If Ameicans
    don’t roll up their sleeves and clean out the rot, the country won’t be worth a brass farthing. Very, very
    sad. I was born into a free country in 1938. Where did it go?????? H Williams

    Just don’t drink cow milk at all. Cows milk is for baby cows – NOT humans. Read “The China Study” by T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D.
    Even my granddaughter’s pediatrician told us she did not need cows milk.

    • weederwoman

      Lorraine,
      Do you not use milk to bake with, to make gravy, to eat cereal, etc., etc. Besides, people should have the “fundamental right” to grow and use their own food.

      • George M. Steffens

        The people who make the laws, and who enforce the laws do not feel compelled to obey them. Therefore, why should we? They only exist in those positions to “protect” us. It is out duty to ignore bad laws and decisions.

      We can neutralize the “Greedy Bastards” by removing money from the process. This would solve fund raising problems, lobbyists having to to pay for influence, PACS, corporations buying influence, free up legitimate legislatures to stop spending 80% of their time having to raise money to be re-elected, etc. 94% of candidates who raise the most money are re-elected, and these are usually incumbent…s. Lets level the playing field and give the opportunity to people who will legislate and SERVE.

      Amendment to US Constitution.

      “No person, corporation or business entity of any type, domestic or foreign, shall be allowed to contribute money, directly or indirectly, to any candidate for Federal office or to contribute money on behalf of or opposed to any type of campaign for Federal office. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, campaign contributions to candidates for Federal office shall not constitute speech of any kind as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution or any amendment to the U. S. Constitution. Congress shall set forth a federal holiday for the purposes of voting for candidates for Federal office.”

      • Teyha

        Gerald, You’re off to the right start. However, how about for every dollar a union, corporation, non-profit organization…. gives to a candidate they must give the same amount to the Federal Govt. for use to bring down the debt or maybe first pay back the IOU’s to SS and the PO. Maybe we should make it for every dollar spent pay back two dollars? Either they stop giving or our debt is paid quickly. Maybe we should charge the candidate the same. You take money from the above, you pay the same to the government. This way normal people can run for office.

      • MNIce

        “Get the money out” – that’s just about the most counterproductive amendment I have ever seen! Only the very wealthy (e. g., George Soros) could run for office under that scheme. And don’t even get started with “public financing”. That gives the bureaucrats the opportunity to control who runs and how they campaign. It wouldn’t take long for the bureaucrats to figure out they can pick the candidates most likely to cave in to their government employees’ union!

        If you want to reduce the influence of money on politics, you must first reduce the influence of politics on money. If we didn’t have politicians or judges usurping power that doesn’t belong to them, we wouldn’t have people thinking it useful to bribe them. After all, nobody will waste a bribe on someone who can’t do what the briber wants.

      • DeJay

        A few days ago Obummer came to California to raise campaign funds. To attend the meeting, tickets were $7500 and the dinner was $800. Now who could afford that but the rich and they will expect and receive favors for their contributions. It seems insane that Obummer has any suppoort from the Democrats. The Democrats must have been bought or are communists.

      Dear Lorraine,

      Your are correct that you should not consume pasteurized milk. It is a dead food. Raw milk however, a staple in the human diet for thousands of years, is an excellent food that provides helpful bacteria, helps to build natural immunity to allergens and contains the helpful bone-forming enzyme alkaline phosphatase.

      Best wishes,
      Bob

      • Sheldon

        I grew up drinking raw milk and it is fine. Not sure why more americans do not have a cow in their back yard along with chickens and a few goats. they would eliminate the need to mow the lawn. I have been really surprised that the EPA has not eliminated the use of mechanized lawn mowers.

      • eddie47d

        Okay Bob Livingston no argument with you about pasteurizing milk but since you do defend business interests what should they do to keep their products safe and transportable? What about shelf life for dairy products within a supermarket? Can whole fresh milk stay safe from lets say salmonella while sitting in a grocery cooler and for how long?

        • http://www.boblivingstonletter.com/ Bob Livingston

          Dear eddie47d,

          You write: “…but since you do defend business interests what should they do to keep their products safe and transportable?” What I defend, sir, is freedom and the free market. What I oppose is too much government regulation.

        I am allergic to cow’s milk, so I grew up on goat’s milk and (Yuckee) soya milk. Of course this would be illegal in Wisconsin since the goats belonged to my uncle who was also allergic to cow’s milk. His goats were cleaned, and the equipment for milking sterilized after each milking. I can’t stand the goats milk they sell in stores today. It tastes terrible. And also, can anyone tell me why they homogenize goat’s milk??? It comes from the goat already homogenized.

      • frank

        well, if I remember, raw milk killed Abe Lincoln’s mommy ..it’s called milk fever .. it can also transmit e. coli.. typhoid… typhus … and many other fun-filled ways of going down the tube to apainful and suffering death i

        • Disgusted

          That is true, but when was the last time you heard of someone dying from drinking raw milk – oh yeah Abe Lincoln’s Mom – and how long ago was that. However front page today is news about people dying from eating cantalope – lets ban those! You dope.

          • bobambi

            Organic Pastures dairy in California, which since 1999 has sold 40 million servings of raw milk and raw milk products without one reported illness. California in the same period experienced at least 20 recalls of pasteurized milk products.

        • bobambi

          Actually Frank.. there is little known about the reason Abe Lincolns mother died and yes many said it was “milk fever” but the milk fever then was thought to be caused by toxic plants fed to the cow. If I am not mistaken pasurization will not fix that.

    • Sheldon

      Yea right. Mares(horse) milk is sweeter. Goats milk is creamier, Mothers milk is not in great abundance but is better. The problem is getting women to lactate enough to replace all the milk needed.

      If we keep bowing to this kind of tyranny, it will never end until we are all dead.

      Our entire food supply is being corrupted. We cannot drink pure water unless we clean it ourselves. We are being told what we can and cannot do in relation to every aspect of our lives, our children’s lives…ALL of our choices are being taken from us and being declared to us by government.

      What if they declared to you that you MUST serve adulterated milk to your children? Would you be so blase about it then?

  • John Roane

    People rise up and take back your state and force these judges out and any other politician who supports them, and that is your right under the US Constitution. If you feel the judges are in the pocket of the milk industry don’t buy any milk from that industry as well.

    I am a european from the Netherlands, a small but big dairy country and also dominated by the farm industry. BUT we have our own freedom and responsebility to consume raw milk and raw milk products. These are full of essential healthy foodstuffs in stead of the dead pasturised products from the factories ! It is a shame for the USA to have such a Wisconsin gouvernement.

    • Jeryl

      The problem with our country is that we have a government that is in bed with special interests – every big industry from coast to coast. There are very, very few politicians at any level of government, from local to national, that truly care about the people they govern. In addition, common sense in American government is the rarest of commodities.

    • mickey

      I think that many Europeans are seeing the plight of the US. Hopefully, and we are begging, European countries will continue to fight buying any GM products, seeds, food, etc, and make it to the international news. Only then will we see a change here in the US.

      Even little Haiti with their starving people refused US GM food. BM corn has just about destroyed Mexico’s corn crops. France outlawed GM products because the bees disappeared.

      We may not need bombs and military support from the EU but we surely need support for the food supply.

    • johnny

      Sorry your argument of Dying Children is ridiculous. People have been consuming milk for centuries and it has not caused any problems in the general population. There are those who due to their own body chemistry do not consume dairy products, but overall it is healthy to humans. If Your argument were plausible aour streets would be filling up with dead children……… scare tactic!

      • Bob G

        Me, my brothers, and all our friends were raised on raw milk in the 50s and 60s. No one died.

    • Disgusted

      People all over this country are drinking raw milk and have been for years. I haven’t heard anything about dying or sick people from it’s consumption. Maybe you should be standing on your podium screaming about cantelope!
      It is my right to choose what I want to drink and what I don’t. I choose to not drink soda and haven’t had one in over 20 years. I would rather they outlaw soda than raw milk – it would certainly make more sense.
      This isn’t about raw milk – the heart of this argument should be that the government is taking away your right to choose! They should not have the right to tell you what you can and can’t drink!

    • combat seabee

      The only reason cows milk would be harmful to people is because through government overreach, they have managed to debilitate our immune systems from which they were designed to work. Read the stats fool, even the use of all these hygenic,(?) bacteriacide hand washes have killed of the beneficial bacteria that we need to have a healthy immune system and combat the harmful ones.
      I grew upon a farm not a grocery store and the raw milk never hurt us children or our parents or our relatives who came for the summers to live on the farm. The problem is, we live not with “Mother Nature” but in concrete and brick superstores which have taken over our lives and bodies. How many toxins do you think you eat everyday even without you fear of raw milk? It will scare you fool!!!

      • Norman from Michigan

        Combat Seabee has a point about raw milk. As I also have grown up on a farm with milk cows I agree that raw milk is safe to consume. But we on the farm also know when it is fresh and kept refridgerated. We also would have to get our milk cows certified by a veternarian to sell or consume the product. Therefore it is fresh and safe to consume. When it gets old we would discard it. I was watching a 20/20 type show that exposed the lack of refrigeration and freshness in our food transportation. Reefers (refridgerated semi trucks) not being turned on. Perishable food in semi trailers standing to be unloaded for hours, unsafe temperature levels in transport, etc. The industry does not keep close enough attention or control on the products you and I consume and bacteria etc. enter our food chain.

    • SmartAlice

      If people washed their hands, bacteria wouldn’t get into the milk, thus negating the reason for pasteurization. Raw milk is a healthy and safe food for consumption, and in our modern times of vast knowledge you’d think people would know how to wash their hands. That’s where the transference of impurities come from. Now go wash your hands and keep the good food clean.

      • Karolyn

    • bobambi

      Wisconsin milk laws are in place to protect big business… pasturisation only extends the shelf life of milk… not make it safer. Homogenized milk is not good for anything…
      Organic Pastures dairy in California, which since 1999 has sold 40 million servings of raw milk and raw milk products without one reported illness. California in the same period experienced at least 20 recalls of pasteurized milk products.

  • Pilot

    This judge’s ruling is unenforceable and should just be ignored and disregarded. Is he going to send government thugs to each and every dairy farm to make sure no one is consuming the milk from the cows they own? I suggest the judge himself should go on a one way trip to Siberia, where he may find the legal situation more to his liking.

    • Disgusted

  • Ross E B

    Pasteurized milk was done to extend the shelf life of milk. This extends the profit from the product. Pasteurized milk is dead milk. It has very little value to us. The protein structure is changed in pasteurization. This helps to cause people to be lactose intolerant. Many people who are lactose intolerant have no problems with raw milk. Raw milk is safe if you get it from a farm that is careful with the care of the cows and the handling of the milk.

    • Disgusted

      You are very right. I have a friend who has 5 children and because of intolerance of pasteurized milk for some of them had 3 different kinds of milk (if you can actually call soy and rice milk…milk) in his refrigerator. After some research he tried raw milk and all of his children drink it without issue. He now has one kind of milk in his refrigerator.
      The state government and the federal government need to stay out of it.

    • Linda

      Ross E.B.,
      I had my own cow, and I can tell you that the milk was still fresh 21 days out! It is all in the handling. Pasteurization just gave the milk producers/sellers an excuse to be sloppy. Even Louis Pasteur would not drink pasteurized milk!

    • Carol

      Are you trying to tell us that there is no milk sugars in raw milk? It’s the lactose(milk sugar), and the non-production of the lactase enzyme by the pancreas that causes lactose intolerance. And don’t try to tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about. I happen to be lactose intolerant.

      • http://www.boblivingstonletter.com/ Bob Livingston

        Dear Carol,

        Yes raw milk contains milk sugars. But raw milk also contains a full complement of enzymes and lactase-producing bacteria the body needs to break down and assimilate milk sugar lactose. These are killed when the milk is pasteurized and homogenized. Many people who are lactose intolerant can tolerate raw milk, but not all.

        Best wishes,
        Bob

      • bobambi

        Carol, no one is trying to tell you anything. If YOU are allergec to milk then don’t drink it..but who is to tell me that I cannot drink the milk from my cow or my neighbors cow? I am allergec to carrots.. so maybe you should not eat them…right?

        • Carol J

          I don’t recall saying that no one should drink cows milk. I just said that milk contained the sugar lactose and some people do not produce the lactase enzyme.

      • Jibbs

        Causes
        Lactose intolerance occurs when the small intestine does not produce enough of an enzyme called lactase. Your body needs lactase to break down, or digest, lactose (the sugar found in dairy products).

        Lactose intolerance generally develops in individuals as they age. People tend to become lactose intolerant around their teenage years, or during adulthood (ages 30 to 40). Generally, lactose intolerance most commonly runs in families and is related to one’s family’s genes. Lactose intolerance can also be brought on by infections, chemotherapy, penicillin reactions, surgery, pregnancy, or from the avoidance of dairy products for a prolonged period of time. Additionally, specific ethnicities are more likely to suffer from lactose intolerance than others.

        On rare occasions, newborns are lactose-intolerant. Usually newborns outgrow the condition as they get older.

        Genetics
        One’s genes can play a key role in being able to consume dairy product without symptoms. One’s genetic make-up dictates if his or her body can produce enough lactase enzyme, an enzyme the body needs to break down dairy products. Many ethnic cultures are in fact more likely to be lactose intolerant because their diets call for low lactose intake. Over generations, these ethnic groups don’t pass on the enzyme to break down dairy because they aren’t consuming dairy.

        Lactose Intolerance by Ethnic Groups:
        African Blacks 95%
        American Indians 90%
        Asian Americans 90%
        North American Blacks 75%
        Mexican Americans 75%
        Mediterraneans 60%
        North American Whites 15%

        • Carol J

          Thanks for the info. I had been told, by my doctor at that, the it was the pancreas that produced the enzyme. I just read the Mayo Clinic report on it.

    • Karolyn

    That judge is what some like to think of as an “intellectual.” Some “intellectuals” have all the common sense of a cracked brick. That particular judge in Wisconsin should be told straight to his face that NO Wisconsin judge has the right to breath air or to continue to live without the advanced, written permission of the people of Wisconsin.
    This kind of insane behavior is to be expected, but it should NOT be tolerated. A judge is supposed to be a source of wisdom and knowledge, and when that isn’t forthcoming, then the people have the RIGHT to protect themselves.
    That same RIGHT also covers elected lower life forms in all 50 states [57 states, according to a certain Washington yahoo]. We are very close to having to protect ourselves daily, and our non-leaders need to know that the days of gradualism are over.
    Tyrants MUST get what they deserve. If they don’t like it, let them flee to another country. Period. We do NOT need permission to be FREE!

    That SB510 is dangerous. It was said it wouldn’t effect the back yard garden but we are seeing it.

    At first, I wondered about the insane behavior to protect us from ourselves but now I am beginning to suspect the government knows what is going on and the pollinators are are infected with GM stuff that reacts to medicines. Small wonder the doctor asks what medicines one takes. It certainly isn’t for our health but for the possible interactions.

    I too grew up with local dairy milk and didn’t have problems with lactose intolerance until much later in life. My kids also had real dairy milk. I wouldn’t feed the grocery store crap to my dogs, much less drink it.

  • Robert

    After reading this article I was applalled by the “gall and the oddasity and arrogance” of this judge. By what precendence did this judge use to base his ruling(s) on? If this ruling doesn’t give the meaning of “Absolute power corrupts absolutely”, then I don’t know what does. Do you? It is obviously clear he is mentally duranged in his mental capacity to make fair and just decisions. He has clearly shown that he is mentally incapable and he does have an ego to satisfy (Power over the people). I do not know what the proceedures are for your state but he has demostrated that he needs to take a “permanent” vacation from his position as judge for the state of Wisconsin because of his irrational thinking. How was this judge put into his positon? Was he elected by the people or by the state legislature. If he was elected by vote from the people then logic dictates that the people can remove him from his chair by special vote due to his “Mental Incompatence.” His thinking processes has failed him, obviously, which will give justification for his removal. And for his past rulings, to include this one, would become automatically become “null and voided”. So I say to the people of Wisconsin, ban together to stand against “his will” or be ruled under “his will”. The choice is yours. So I ask the people to do the “right thing” and help this judge for a much needed rest form his judgeship. This judge needs to understand that the people need relief to pursue about their own business without fear. This judge must understand he needs this rest. Remember, the people of Wisconsin have a choice but the judge cannot because he is mentally encapable of making any rational decision(s) on his own any more. Therefore, the people must prevail in this matter as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the longer it takes to replace. Remember, remove him for “No Confidence” and other charges for his sake. He needs rest and soon.

    This is not just an issue for Wisconsin, sometimes these rulings grow legs and travel interstate. And it is not just an issue about Dairy-the FDA seems to think that they can tell the US citizens what they can or cannot eat or grow and push GMOs on us. It is about corrupt public servants and corrupted government ideology. I also consumed raw milk as a child and never got sick-in fact I have a very good immune system and never had any childhood diseases and don’t even get so much as a cold today-maybe thanks to raw milk. While you are at it look at the ingredients that are in the bread at the grocery store. Take the challenge and see if you can get some mold to eat that bread. These ingredients were added in the 90s to allow the baking industry to be lower their sanitary standards and extend the shelf life of their products. This trampling on our Constitution and our liberties and rights have to stop now! It is my opinion that our best hope is for Dr. Ron Paul to win the 2012 Presidential Election. I for one just got a second house in Wisconsin and will follow the link.

  • Sam I am

    Since we don’t have a fundamental right to consume what foods we want without permission from the state, then everyone in Wisconsin needs to call the local police or the judge’s office before every meal just to double check that the food you are eating is “authorized”. Just say that you heard about the case against raw milk, in that you are just being safe. Say that your kids are starving and you are still waiting for permission to consume foods A, B, and C. Watch CPS come and take your children despite being careful to always obtaining state permission before meals.

      Or send them the “end result sample” of what we digested the night before so that they can examine it to see if what we ate was authorized by the State as a legally consummable product. :)

    There is an excellent book written by the founder of Gun Owners of America, by H. L. Richardson and I recommend it for everyone reading and replying to these posts. It is called, Confrontational Politics. http://gunowners.org/
    It is a short and easy read, chocked full of great advice as well as being an excellent expose on why these wackos act the way they do, why they win, and how we can learn from this and apply the same tactics. William Butlet Yeats once wrote in Second Coming, “The best lacked all conviction, while the worst were full of passionate intensity”. Let’s reclaim that intensity.

  • Jay

    Did anyone bother to read the Order?
    First, it denies a SUMMARY JUDGMENT request, which is a request for a decision prior to any trial or production of evidence. The judge actually writes “The Court is unwilling to declare there is a fundamental right… without first being presented with significantly more developed arguments… ” Seems reasonable to me. After all, if I said that I love to eat marijuana and heroin… do I have a fundemantal right to grow and use them? Didn’t think so…
    More importantly, Judges have to decide the case before them, not some make believe case. The order makes clear, this is about a company operating a DAIRY FARM which SHOULD be regulated so hat the public’s health is not endangered.
    I know this isn’t a popular view here, but if you’re going to get angry about something, you should know the actual FACTS first!

      ■“Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to board their cow at the farm of a farmer.”

      “After all, if I said that I love to eat marijuana and heroin… do I have a fundemantal right to grow and use them? ”

      Why yes you do. The fact that some people butt into your business is exactly why the Judge thinks the way he does about milk.

      For a TRULY free people the possession of ANYTHING created, grown, obtained without fraud or theft, can not be illegal.

      This would include milk, and herbs of any type. If you were a truly free people these freedoms would be self evident. For those who are slaves who think you are free, you often miss the big clues that your Master says what you can or can not eat.

    • American Drone

      Ron Paul nailed this enigma many years ago and still makes the same claim, of which I agree. A free market will correct any and all substandard products far better than government regulation. Regulations lead to even greater regulations, which then spread into all aspects of society and morph into loss of rights, left unchecked. A free market will simply drive the substandard product producers out of business by not accepting any product that is unsafe.

      I do agree with Jay to a point and that is we need a strong Federal gov’t, BUT, not the intrusive monstrosity that we currently have. We need a government that remembers that it works for US so that we can do what we do best: live free, be creative and in harmony with each other, support each other when needed, be an excellent example to the world like we used to be, and stay out of our neighbors business. A good government should work to protect us when needed but leave us alone otherwise. The few have this notion that the many are too stupid to be left alone to their own devices; however, history has proven otherwise. The problem began when gov’t decided that it alone knew what was best…perhaps there were good intentions along the way, but that too fell short due to a disease that is common to us all…human imperfection.

    This is just one example of the overall problem at all levels here in the U.S. Look at how the Federal Government continues to overstep the Constitutional authority given to it. This is just a list off the top of my head and could be much longer.

    There has been a concerted effort at all levels to destroy the U.S. and it’s Constitution. Look at every area the government is trying to take away rights. For instance look at the following very short list:
    1.)Parental rights. 2.)The right to assemble wherever they want without having to have a license or a permit. 3.)The right to grow my own food without the government telling me I cannot grow whatever I want or sell, trade, or give it to whomever I want without their permission. 4.)The government control of the internet essentially controlling the speech that can be used against the government. (This is already in the works by the FCC gaining control of it in spite of the Federal Judge ruling it was illegal for them to do it. Now they are trying to put Net Neutrality in place which gives them total control of the internet. 5.)Removal of the right to truly own our own property without the government being able to confiscate it under rules made up by the government. 6.)Removal of our ability to have electricity supplied to our house without the government monitoring and controlling how much electricity we are allowed to use. They are moving toward requiring these so called smart controllers in every home. They have already said they will start charging the persons who refuses to have these smart controllers installed in their house. These controllers will have the ability to openly monitor what is going on inside the house, but we are told this will be disabled. (Year right!) 7.) The right to own and operate a business without the government coming in and control it out of business. I know several instances where the government legislated a business out of business.
    These are just a few things to bring to your attention, I have not even scratched the surface. The fact is, if the American people do not wake up and see the U.S. is being taken over by the Marxist Communistic ideology, we can kiss the U.S. goodbye. At this point, the only thing I see that could possibly stop this takeover, is for people to wake up and recognize that the U.S. has thrown God out and repent ant turn back to Him. He is the only one who can save our nation at this time. The power has shifted so solidly in the favor of these Marxist Communists that the only one who can break that power it the one who brought our nation together in the first place, the Lord Jesus Christ.

      This is why I have told my husband…I would rather make aliyah (immigrate) to Israel and deal with dodging the occasional bombs..etc. at least there is freedom there. The gov isn’t oppresive..there isn’t this huge list of you can’t and you musn’t. So sad..this once great nation is being destroyed by a bunch of cowards. If they were real men..they wouldn’t behave the way they are

      • newspooner

        My understanding is that Israel is a socialist country. Correct me if I am wrong. I think we need to make liberty’s last stand here in the USA.

        • Helana

          Not entirely…but this country is. We like to say we are not. Our founders were not. Most of us in our hearts are not..but our leaders are…and they are forcing it down our throats.

          Still..either way..in Israel…you are free to live..have your home..business…life etc..without the constant inteferance of the gov

    • newspooner

      I don’t believe that our only hope is God’s intervention. We can still save liberty via the ballot box. But we need to get out there and wake up people one by one.

      • Lost in Paradise

        I wish that were true, but it is not. THe ballot box is not going to help this time. WE will need to fight our way out of this one with our guns and ammo. It is better to die fighting the bastards than to let them rule us with an Iron Fist.

        I could no longer stand it, so I moved to a 3rd world country, where I can have freedom. GO FIGURE! Knowing what is happening to the country I love, is tearing me to pieces, but what can one man do by himself. If my fellow Americans and Patriots would stand up and fight with their words and their weapons, I would return to help. But not until, will I return.

  • Helana

    Is this what our Men and Women fought and died for? NO! They fought for our freedoms..freedom from tyranical leaders in England, freedom from opressive invaders etc. They did not fight and die so we could be told by our leaders..you can’t drink cows milk..you can’t eat the veggies you grow…you can’t put a well on your land..you can’t do this or that. Give me a Break!! Our Constitution and Bill of Rights affords us the rights to such things. It is NOT illegal!. We do not live in Communist China or Russia. This judge needs to be removed from the bench.., any law he has made that is contrary to the real laws need to be overturned…so the people of Wisconsin can get back to normal life. We here in Hoosier country would not put up with it. Hmmm ..I wonder. If all us farmers..being I am one of them..would just stop feeding the country..and just took care of our own…I. think that would get the point across in a hurry. Oh sure they’d outsource that too…but who the heck would buy it..or could afford it. God Help Us All!

  • American Drone

    You nailed it…and it will happen.

    People need to study American history. Read the writings of those who founded this country. You will note that they were an economic elite who feared the “common people”. This is why when the USA was founded only people of “means” were allowed to vote. The ordinary working person was not allowed to vote until later on in our country’s history. There is a difference between a “Republic” and a “Democracy”. We are a “Republic”. The Republicans through “Voter Picture ID” want to prevent the poor, the elderly, the people of color from being allowed to vote. This way they believe that they can prevent people more likely to vote Democrat from voting. Returning the US to the sort of society we once were, a society where only “those of means” had the right to vote.

    • American Drone

      HUH?

    • Vicki

      Jerome Bigge says:
      “This is why when the USA was founded only people of “means” were allowed to vote.”

      Well actually only people who owned property voted because they were the only ones who had something to loose when the tax man commith. The rest of us did not need to vote cause the whole of the people understood and enforced the Constitution. Government was small and focused on it’s proper role of protecting the rights of EVERYONE.

      Once the income tax became law then working folk had something to loose and needed (and got) the power to vote. As we see today our forefathers were VERY wise in limiting voting to those with wealth to loose. Now that everyone gets to vote we see the people getting wealth (money) from government constantly voting for those politicians who promise them more “bacon” from that government.

  • Joyceann

    I raised my kids on a farm, we grew our own produce, our own meat and our own milk and eggs. It is my right to do this. I sold many a jar, and gave the milk away. Nobody ever got sick and I didn’t find out later than government food was not good for you. This is just a way for government to shut down a food supply that the government can’t control. The judge said we don’t have a right to food. Who does he think he is? I’m sure that in the right to life, liberty and the persuit of happiness, that food and water are in there somewhere.
    We need to vote the government out of our business and vote out these judges. We can begin by doing our homework and using our power to reclaim America.

    • American Drone

      Your family and you didn’t get sick because the FED was not around to tell you how bad that was. Now that you know that this is bad for you, you have no choice but to get sick. Sorry, just telling you what your beloved FED wants you to know.

      Of course, I am being sarcastic, but there is truth in that sarcasm. We often do get sick, but not because of bad milk, but because of worry, fear, and angst all caused by the fear mongering of Big Brother.

  • BigStick2012

    When are we the people going to rise up and say enough is enough, this guy is obviously incompetent, and borderline senile. I guess the people of Wisconsin like being puppy dogs, and maybe those that are okay with this ruling and like being told when, how, what, and where to do everything should all have their noses pierced so they can be led around by a leash. They certainly wouldn’t want to have to think for themselves on such important matters as what they can eat, no they might make the wrong choices and get a ticket or something. Remember ‘Demolition Man’ a computer with oblama’s voice and picture handing out citations everywhere. Can’t wait!!!!!!!!!

  • Tracy

    This is just more proof that our entire government from executive and legislative to the Judicial and press has been bought out by big food and big pharma. Soon you won’t be able to grow a potato in your backyard without nanny state approval.

  • Kimberly

    Does everyone understand now that the courts don’t give a rip about our “natural rights” that are supposed to be protected by the Constitution and the constitutions of the states? This is “tyranny” at its worst! And why when you vote for judges, be sure to check their records. I realize some judges are appointed, however, if you vote for people who respect your natural rights, then they will appoint judges who in turn respect your natural rights.

    Remember, this is not the only judge who thinks this way. ALL judges must swear an oath to support, uphold, and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. If a judge doesn’t do this it is an impeachable offense and the judge should be removed.

    • American Drone

      The United States of America was founded as a Republic, not a democracy, under the Constitution.

      The purpose of a Republic form of government is as follows:
      -To control and limit the Majority and protect the Minority by a written Constitution
      -To protect the GOD-given, inalienable rights and liberty of the Individual
      -Without this protection, the “Democracy” would result in a Majority with unlimited power over the Minority [mob rule]
      -Without which, there would be no legal safeguards for the Rights of the Individual or the Minority

      I guess the question is this: If our government refuses to abide by the Constitution, how long will the People continue to do so? If the Constitution is “null and void”, isn’t the government “null and void” by that same reasoning?

      “Our Constitution was made only for a MORAL and RELIGIOUS people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”-John Adams

  • Helana

    Jerome…you are so far out in left field that you need a map to get back. Not trying to be mean..bt seriously my american brother..what you said is not so.

    Yes…we are a Republic..and not a Democracy as many are lead to believe. There is a difference.

    But the gov was never that way..no do the republicans want to do that. Why would would say that? What historical proof do you have to back up these claims?

    Originally only slaves and women were not allowed to vote, but then even that changed.

    Now I agree there is to much gov intrusion into our lives..but the reason we have a need for voter ID according to the gov..is so illegal aliens don’t vote, also so there isn’t multiple voting going on. Like say someone was to vote in several different states..which has happened. Heck..people have voted in several different counties.

    So stop with the conspiracies

            I was being sarcastic; the whole idea in this country of tolerance is a joke.

          • dufas-duck

            Actually, it is tolerance and tolerance comes in many different shades of gray. It depends on what the voters are tolerating. Most voters vote for what they is given to them, not what is the best for everybody.

            An example of tolerance might be Democratic Senator Byrd, a card carrying grand poo-bah of the Klu Klux Klan and the longest serving member of congress…. He was voted in again and again because he directed more federal tax monies from all the other states into his state than any other politician ever would or could. The voters kept voting him in for what he gave them. His votes were bought and paid for with other states federal taxes. His being a Klan member was tolerated for the voters gain, very similar to what the banks did, everyone else can go dig dirt as long as the banks got theirs…

            Tolerance is alive and well, it just depends on which tolerance one subscribes to…

      Actually, the cure has been mentioned often enough, VOTE! of course, a stronger cure is to PRAY FOR AMERICA as she has lost her way.

    • American Drone

      The point that you make is why I earlier mentioned an excellent resource by H.L. Richardson , founder of Gun Owners of America. He wrote a book called, Confrontational Politics, which discusses the concept of FULCRUM in public thought. Instead of trying to move the masses, move the fulcrum just far enough and the entire philosophy will shift, much like a teeter totter. Grass roots politics and thought, combined together, are the movers of the fulcrum, one person at a time. We must band together to amplify our voice. This is how the far left did it, the multitude of leftist organizations joined together to change America…now it is time to tip it back the other way.

    “What country does this fascist judge think he lives in?”

    I’d say that is an understated question.

    How does a judge in this country get away with making such a ruling?

    To say one has no right, can have it’s basis in law, but to say that they have no FUNDAMENTAL right… is just absolutely crazy. Epecially to grow and consume ones own food, which is not just a fundamental rights of American citizens, but a fundamental rights of human beings, and life in general.

    The man needs pulled off the bench and hung in the center of town.

    Twenty-eight U.S. states do not prohibit sales of raw milk.[22] Cow shares can be found, and raw milk purchased for animal consumption in many states where retail for human consumption is prohibited.

    Most states impose restrictions on raw milk suppliers due to concerns about safety. As of 2009, the state of Connecticut has discussed creating possible restrictions upon the sale of raw milk to farms and farmer’s markets.[23] The FDA reports that, in 2002, consuming partially heated raw milk and raw milk products caused 200 Americans to become ill in some manner.[24]

    Many governmental officials and the majority of public health organizations hold to the need for pasteurization. Before pasteurization, many dairies, especially in cities, fed their cattle on low-quality food, and their milk was rife with dangerous bacteria. Pasteurizing it was the only way to make it safely drinkable. As pasteurization has been standard for many years, it is now widely assumed that raw milk is dangerous.[25] The Cornell University Food Science Department has compiled data indicating that pathogenic microorganisms are present in between 0.87% and 12.6% of raw milk samples.[26]

    Proponents of raw milk (in the U.S.) advance two basic arguments for unpasteurized milk. They claim that pasteurization destroys or damages some of the milk’s nutrients, and that while pasteurization may kill “dangerous” bacteria, it also kills off “good” bacteria that raw milk supporters claim to have health benefits.[27] The United States Food and Drug administration claims that this is false, and that pasteurizing milk does not destroy any of its nutritive value.[28]

    Proponents also invoke the benefits of direct-marketing when promoting the sale of raw milk. The ability of the farmer to eliminate the middle-man and sell directly to the consumer allows for greater profitability. Many manufacturers sell small-scale pasteurization equipment, thereby allowing farmers to both bypass the milk processors and sell pasteurized milk directly to the consumer. Additionally, some small U.S. dairies are now beginning to adopt low-temperature vat pasteurization.[29] Advocates of low-temperature vat pasteurization note that it produces a product similar to raw milk in composition and is not homogenized.

    Well hmm? ~ It’s home of cheese heads and the state economy is linked to byproducts of the bovine.

    I’d suspect that this state is more sensitive then most to such matters.

    But anytime you get government into your business,life get crazy, it’s a given. The bad thing is maybe the farmer. Taking care of dairy cows is hard work and a everyday process. Sundays and Christmas means little to a cow. You are taking care of a herd of “girls” , two or three keeps me busy as a one legged man in a butt kicking contest.

    I hold no strong opinions at this time and it could easily be seen as a political football.

  • charlie61451

    Let’s see; you can own the cow, but you don’t have the right to consume the milk it produces. That’s like saying that you can own a furnace, but you don’t have the right to the heat it produces. I don’t see much difference between this judge’s ruling, and the aromatic brown pile that the cow leaves behind her after she has consumed the hay and grain that you probably don’t have the right to own, either.

    It’s time to retire these kind of judges. A tar and feather party anyone.

  • Jay

    This judge needs to be fired! People were drinking raw milk long before homogenization, and corporate monopoly. This judge was obviously bribed, threatened, or blackmailed. Take your pick!

  • Libertarian58

    Why do we even listen to these communists? We need to start ignoring them. They can’t put 300,000,000 of us in jail. . .

  • Pathos

    “A society that surrenders freedom for security shall have neither”.

  • Winston Smith

    Watch TV – any day – and there are waves of commercials for “FDA Approved”, prescription medicines. Flashed on the screen in “fine print” are words to the effect: “TAKE THIS MEDICINE AND YOU MIGHT DIE!” But foods that have nourished millennia of us humans are “dangerous”?

  • Bob McCormick

    The judge is correct we have no rights anymore. It’s time to put government back in it’s proper place.

  • Andrew

    TIME TO REMOVE THAT JUDGE – MAYBE THE WAY OF THE OLD WEST -= ANYONE GOT A ROPE?

  • Bob Eisenbart

    What county is this nut ball from? I think Judges like this should be made an example of by removing him from the bench in the next election process. Commerce is one thing, but what you do with your own cows, chickens, pigs whatever, is none of their business.

  • Bob Eisenbart

    Answered my own question. Dane county, wow who would have guessed!! He has made a decision to step down from the bench after 18 plus years. He will take up private practice in Dane county. Beware the “reserve judges syndrome”. These guys show up later and can’t be removed through elections like regularly elected judeges. It is a system that needs to be changed so that the people have that last say in whether they “serve” the people as a reserve judge or not. Off the milk point but important.

    • libertytrain

      Yep, Dane County – Madison, home of the union squabbles a few months back. Who would guess…. :)

  • BILLY V.

    THIS IDIOT IS TAKING UP AIR SPACE!

  • Pete Hans, Wausau WI

    Many of you do not know Wisconsin is a Socialist State run by Socialists, if you do not believe me look up the Mayors of Milwaukee in Google.

  • Paul D.

    There’s a joke that was old when I was a kid. . .

    Q– What do you call a lawyer with an IQ of 50?
    A– “Your Honor.”

  • Mac

    Judge Patrick J. Fiedler, discloses his true allegiance by arguing that “economic well-being of the dairy industry” is at the heart of Wis. Stat Sec. 97-24(4).

  • Freescot1253

    This is a PRIME example how TOO MUCH POWER and AUTHORITY corrupts the system. Who is this judge to edict this kind of authority? I live in WV and will continue to eat what I raise, animal or plant, and NO judge is going to stop me. End of story.

  • gunsandammo

    Q. “What is the difference between a catfish and a liberal judge?”

    A. “One is a scum-sucking bottom feeder, and the other is a fish.”

  • Verus Langham

    Let’s just take a peek back in the era in which the Founders were putting together the foundations for this nation… some farmers, some inventors, some merchantmen: if it were a thing that they could foresee in future times they might well have included in the Constitution all the legal-speak words that would further define just what they meant by life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, to include (for the benefit of those who could not understand their clear meaning) such assertions as: “Yes, I own my own farm and I sell my goods to merchants who in turn package the goods and resell them to the community; I also sell to my neighbors and friends and we all enjoy the liberty to pursue the happy days whenever we sit at our tables eating and drinking the product of our labors… my, isn’t it noteworthy that no governmental regulatory body may in any way impede our personal pursuits of happiness by erroneously legislating the correctness for distribution and consumption of our livelihoods?”
    You know! It is beyond time when impeachment proceedings against such judges as this imbecile should have been done and over with. If given their full throttle, unchecked, they will next impose on us taxation on eating too much of fresh-homegrown produce and dairy products, else throw us into prisons for violating their edicts. We cannot fail to rally behind the state of Wisconsin to overthrow their burdensome jurists and legislators who think too much of themselves and their plan for our freedoms.
