The Food Police - Coming to a Home Near You!

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)     (# of views)   10 comments
"On the morning of December 1, 2008, law enforcement officers forcefully entered the Stowers’ residence, without first announcing they were police or stating the purpose of the visit. With guns drawn, officers swiftly and immediately moved to the upstairs of the home, finding ten children in the middle of a home-schooling lesson. Officers then moved Jacqueline Stowers and her children to their living room where they were held for more than six hours." (Buckeye Institute)

What was this about? Well, the Stowers had the audacity to run an organic food co-op. The charges? Well, there weren’t any. Charges? We don’t need no stinkin’ charges; just bust in, hold the family hostage for 6 hours, confiscate their food, and by the way, have a nice day! Oh, did we forget to mention we are cops? Oh well, you know now.

If this type of thing is happening before HR 875, 814, and 759, what would it be like if these bills pass? Talk about a nightmare. And you think the IRS is bad. The food police will make the IRS look like a children’s choir.
