“We declare now that we do not want to be a ‘licensed retail food establishment’ or a ‘food service operation’ and we do not plan to become one in the future and that we will not knowingly conduct any activities that would require that type of licensing,” she wrote.”

The comments that follow the web edition of this story are not so restrained, however:

Peacechicken wrote:

” THANK YOU for actually reporting this story. Every other Cleveland news outlet has ignored it.

You may also want to include the fact that a SWAT team held semi-automatic weapons at the Stowers’ families heads all day while the raid was conducted. They were also not read their rights and had items confiscated that were not included on the search warrant. Who needs Constitutional Rights, anyway? All because they wanted to eat and sell healthy food…

The Buckeye State has become a Police State. “

Sean wrote:

” What a clear breech of their God-given rights! These people are being targeted by our police State because they are independent and not within the control of the State. People should be able to raise their own food as they see fit, without harming their neighbor, and be able to distribute it to their neighbor as well. God bless them for their work and all work like it, and may it be restored to its former condition. The State should pay dearly for persecuting its own citizens. Bravo to this paper too for publishing the story. “

” We need to bombard the ODA’s inbox and telephones with messages. We will not stand for this. This is a constitutional violation up one side and down the other. Those poor babies that were held by gunpoint - who had no idea what the heck was going on - are going to have nightmares and anxiety for years to come!

Welcome to the Obamanation, folks. Get used to it. “

Rick wrote:

” This nation was founded by people who raised their own food without government bureaucrats sending SWAT teams into their homes.

The Department of Agriculture people ought to be ashamed of themselves and their behavior. But I’ll bet they’re not. I’ll be they think they are doing the right thing, and either don’t understand the Stowers or despise them as “noncompliants.” Scary and wrong.

Tell me again why more government is a good idea? “
