The Complete Patient reports:
In response to a request from the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, judge Patrick J. Fiedler issued a clarification of his decision last week regarding his assessment of the constitutionality of food rights. The judge expanded on his original statement that such constitutional issues are “wholly without merit.”
He explained that the FTCLDF arguments were “extremely underdeveloped.” As an example, he said the plaintiffs’ use of the Roe v Wade abortion rights case as a precedent does “not explain why a woman’s right to have an abortion translates to a right to consume unpasteurized milk…This court is unwilling to declare that there is a fundamental right to consume the food of one’s choice without first being presented with significantly more developed arguments on both sides of the issue.” Gee, I thought they both had to do with the right to decide what to do with your own body.
As if to show how pissed he was at being questioned, he said his decision translates further that “no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a dairy herd;
“no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow;”
And in a kind of exclamation point, he added this to his list of no-nos: “no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice…”
I have to assume that if we don’t have a fundamental right to own a cow or consume raw milk from our own cows, that we must not have a fundamental right to consume anything. Thus, the State must be able to starve us to death at its leisure according this ruling.
The State is your god serf.
Only people like the great Patrick J. Fiedler are able to determine what is appropriate for you to consume. You are simply too dumb to make such a decision for yourself.
