Government regulation is always a slippery slope.
Government regulation is FORMERLY a slippery slope.

Under Obama it's a BULLET TRAIN TO SOCIALISM.

Big govt is killing the family business, too...

November 2012 cant come soon enough...hopefully, it will bring about a change in attitude and a change in direction.

If not, bye bye America as we once knew it.

The organic farming movement is NOT the way to feed the world. However, shouldn’t we as citizens be free to choose what we put into our mouths?


The organic farming movement is one set of rules, controlled in Washington DC.

I at one time promoted using the ISO 9000 standards in agriculture which allowed multiple standards, you just had to prove what you said you were going to do. The customer then decided if that was good enough.

Why should the "family farm" be more important than the "family gas station" or the "family insurance agency"?Let them compete without subsidies, or excessive regulation.

The incredible efficiencies of large farming has had alot to do with the disappearing family farm. Most small farmers I know do it because they love farming even though it is marginal from a business standpoint. That's their choice.

More leftist cognitive dissonance.

They’re all-in for the “family farm,” freedom from ridiculous Gov’t intervention, organic food, etc..., yet it seems many are happy to have Obama and his ilk takeover Gov’t health-care, increasing the budgets of EPA and FDA by 30% per year, etc...

They don’t seem to realize these all have the same root.

Big government is killing the family farmer.

Precisely as laid out in the U.N.'s Agenda 21

I like farmers, but the truth is we've been losing farming jobs for a lot longer than 20 years. And big government has very little to do with it.

Automation, large scale farming, and improved farming techniques have had a lot more to do with it, than big government.

A family farmer is not going to be able to farm the same small plot of his ancestors did, producing little more than they did and still be able to buy that satellite dish and a modern car, and a college education for their kids, etc. If they aren't going to produce much more than their ancestors, then their standard of living is not going to be much better either.

A comment on something in the article.

There is raw milk cheese (cheddar, cottage) and other raw dairy products avaiable in southern Calif., anyway.
Alta Dena is one brand, Horizon is another.
There may be others.

Our kids, now in their 40’s, were raised on raw milk and other products - the milk was even delivered to the doorstep by a local dairy!

Milk consumptiom was stopped when the youngest became 12 or so. Yeah, we came to believe cow’s milk is meant for their babies, and not us. Find calcium elsewhere . . .
(One daughter has not one cavity)!

These raw products are delicious, tho. They are not foods that have been processed to heck!
(Hope the govt. peeps aren’t listening in and getting further regulation ideas).

Also, the ‘raw milk’ dairies are held to a higher standard and inspection.

And gez wot?
None of us are De-mocrats.

: )
