In an absolute brilliant use of our tax dollars, the federal government spent an entire year orchestrating a bust on an Amish milk company for selling unpasteurized milk (and yes, the customers knew they were buying “raw” milk–that was the whole point).
Regardless of the FDA’s take on milk pasteurization, the fact that these incredibly competent federal agents had to spend an entire year building a case against a group of people who are not exactly known for being, well, “clandestine,” frightens me.
Now, if we could just clamp down on illegal butter churning we could have a terror-free world.
