For the last month I have become sick and tired of TV news that hourly comes up with a new super criminal, either elected, or a private thief.  Jessie James, Al Capone, Bonny and Clyde, are all small change compared to the contemporary shysters the likes of Bernie Madoff and the Wall Street gangsters who don't just rob the train, but haul all the nation's money away in a fleet of armored trucks.  Not just looting the other bad guys, but stealing their own mother's savings! 
 
So, I watch old Westerns where the good guy always wins.
 
Livestock publications like Beef, Drovers, and National Cattleman know people like clean and nice stuff so they print the weekly NAIS promotion releases. The NAIS program claims it can stop all disease and save the world.  USDA offers a positive pablum message, but  void of all cost considerations. 
 
USDA has billions to work with.  They hold court on Independence Avenue in what was the largest office compound in the world.  There is something about the authority of making enforcements from the power of a narcissistic filled over two million square foot stone carved building that makes them ---- feel --- faultless.  Then out in the corral dealing with cattle, horses and managing a farm----what could these humble people possibly know about livestock and disease?
 
The experience of stepping in real bull dust every day will provide valid lessons totally clashing with the marble halls of USDA.  There is an opinion of the regulators, and an opinion of the regulated---totally different.
 
Check this link putting NAIS in perspective so even (well meaning) people in DC can understand it.  This short video narrated by Henry Lamb represents the view of the regulated.  This is produced by Sovereignty International, Bx 191, Hollow Rock, TN 38342.

For a second opinion on NAIS this film is produced by Liberty Ark Coalition.

Met libertarian and conservative farmers and learned an incredible amount about farming and nature and science, as well as about government violations against them and against us all. The other side of the fence is nothing like what we've been (more...)
