The USDA has no history of being the target of violence. But they do have the mantra "get big or get out."
Do you think they'll bring machine guns when they visit ADM or Cargill? Nooooo....
“What we have seen happen, with the FDA especially, is they have come onto small farms, raw milk producers, and raided the heck out of them with armed agents present,” says Liz Reitzig, co-founder of the Farm Food Freedom Coalition. “Do we really want to have our federal regulatory agencies bring submachine guns onto these family farms with children?”I'd ask why we have federal regulators at all, but yes, if so, why machine guns? Because the pendulum is swinging back, small farms are resurrecting, and the USDA mantra is get big or get out. Time to bring straight fire power to people who disagree with government policy and try to create good food.
