LATE ADDITIONS (Part 3a)
1) a family update from Friday from the Manna Storehouse folks themselves via Steve & Paula Runyan’s blog
2) Salt Spring News is following the story and has a nice exposition on the theme of our photo caption “Sheep may safely graze?”. (I wondered how many people would realize it is the title of a famous aria by J.S. Bach). Ironically, the theme of the accompanying words have to do with “good government”, something we are arguably not seeing in this case. It’s a lovely piece of music and Salt Spring News has a link to a YouTube version of the music toward the bottom of their report.
3) Here’s something about the legal basis on which Manna Storehouse operates, from a comment on an earlier post (Oppression Update) on Steve and Paula Runyan’s blog. This comment is by “Steve and Paula”:
“….The following is from their rules and regs.
c. Manna Storehouse is not licensed or approved by any federal, state or local agency and it does not have any plans to do so in the future.
Members agree that by joining Manna Storehouse you state that you are not an employee of any federal, state or local government agency. Any transaction, communication or observations by you and/or anyone with you cannot be reported or communicated in any way to any federal, state or local government agency; nor used in a court of law against Manna Storehouse or any member of the Stowers family.
1. “Manna Storehouse” – means a private business, non licensed and non regulated”
4.) And this is from another comment on the same post, by Robert Coss:
“… Check out this video of a raid where they forgot to take the computer with all the video footage stored on it!…. “
5.) Watching that video of a swat team in action against citizens whose only “crime” seems to be using silver and gold instead of paper notes, reminds me that it might be interesting, in this context, for readers to watch the video of the Nov 2006 raid by twenty-some armed officers on Michael Schmidt’s raw milk farm in Durham Ontario.
