We’ve got a code red, code red! Boom! Officers kicked in the doors and came swarming in, like a bunch of angry wasps, guns drawn and looking to shoot the first thing that twitched. I sat still, silent, watching the security monitor in the back room guarding my cooler filled with one of nature’s most precious foods – raw milk.
My heart was racing and beads of sweat dripped from my head to the cold concrete floor below. A bottle of milk slipped little by little through my fingers and, in what seemed like slow motion, crashed into the floor. Glass and milk surrounded me like a pool of blood at a crime scene.
I imagine that’s how farmers feel when the FDA and other government agencies raid their farms, like the gestapo pigs that they are.
Will the milk industry stop at nothing to eliminate its competition? How far are they willing to go to get their declining sales to rise again?
Well, it recently came out that the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) have filed a petition with the FDA to add aspartame or sucralose to sweeten milk. If you thought pasteurized milk couldn’t get much worse, it has. The dairy processors even want to add it to sour cream, whipping cream, yogurt, and almost every other type of dairy product you can imagine.
As if adding these products weren’t bad enough, big dairy doesn’t even want you to know about it. That’s right – they don’t want to put it on the label. Here’s what the dairy associations had to say in their petition:
“IDFA and NMPF argue that nutrient content claims such as “reduced calorie” are not attractive to children, and maintain that consumers can more easily identify the overall nutritional value of milk products that are flavored with non-nutritive sweeteners if the labels do not include such claims. Further, the petitioners assert that consumers do not recognize milk — including flavored milk — as necessarily containing sugar.”
A classic case of misinformation and propaganda brought to you by big dairy. What’s next? Carbonated six pack cans of Mountain Milk? C’mon man! They don’t even want to label it. They don’t think you have the right to know that you’re consuming poison. Yes, aspartame is poison.
When are consumers gonna wake up and stop buying all of this pasteurized, irradiated, garbage? Skim milk used to be considered a waste product. Now it’s considered “low-fat” and supposedly good for us, even though it tastes like chalk-water. Well, why not add some artificial sweeteners to make it taste better? “We better not tell them though, because consumers are catching on to the fact that aspartame and other artificial ingredients aren’t good for them,” corporate stooges whisper into each other’s ears. What’s wrong with these guys?
Real farmers feed skim milk to their pigs. Well, it looks like corporations want to feed us to the pigs instead. Fatten us up and slow us down, until we become obese, sterile sheep ready for the culling.
You’re darn right I have and you probably have too. “Oh, well, what’s Brad gonna do?” you may be asking. I’m already doing what all of you need to be doing – not participating in this racket of corporatism. We know government and corporations are in bed with one another. Fascism is upon us and action is needed. Stop buying pasteurized dairy products from the meg-lo-marts, especially the big name brands from the biggest stores. The bigger the brand, the worse it probably is.
“Well, how do I know what’s in my food? ” you may be asking. That’s easy, go to the farm and see for yourself. If producers of food don’t have the guts to label their products correctly, stay away, far away – next question.
If this doesn’t wake you up, I’m not sure what will. If you think our overlords have our best interest in mind, think again. It’s hard to think, though, when our brains are clouded from all the processed foods they shove down our gullets. But, if you’re still reading, then there’s hope, there’s a way out.
Breaking the chains
You wake up first thing in the morning and throw out all the processed garbage that’s in your cupboards. Don’t even wait to take a shower… okay, take a shower, you smell funny. Now, once all the processed garbage is thrown out, go down to the farmer’s market and get some fresh veggies, fruits, meat, nuts, soaked-grain or soured, homemade breads and other foods people used to eat before the industrial revolution… traditional foods, got it. Get these foods and get them into you. Ferment them, roast them, bake them, eat them raw. Yes, why not do them all? Do this for a week and see how you feel. After one week, try another week.
Okay, now it’s been two weeks and your energy starts coming back. You’re feeling good, alive, and awake. You’re starting to question political leaders, your boss, mainstream media, and people in general. By the third week you’re running wild. You start telling people what’s on your mind, you’ve stopped lying, and you have an opinion. You’ve unplugged your cord, cut the chain with your bare hands, and started being man for the first time in years. Then, when your boss asks you what exactly has happened to you, say, “I decided to eat free or die, Wooo! And I listen to Food Riot Radio.”
