WI Judge: “Plaintiffs Do Not Have A Fundamental Right To Consume The Milk From Their Own Cow”

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.

    Food rights? I missed that one in the constitution. I think that one is covered under the pursuit of happiness. I doubt the founding fathers ever considered the state would tell you couldn’t drink milk from your own cow.

      That is Simple,  the 10th amendment covers it.  

      The Constitution is a limit on the GOVERNMENT not a limit on the people,  somehow over the last 100years (accelerated over the last 50) that has been flipped by the courts.

    My money is on statists pushing for monopolizing food processing in the future; production is co opted so its getting there. Might want to write up some articles about why the State doesn’t need to own the food industry ahead of time.

    “Waitresses are exploited and the coffee sucks, It’s filled with grounds we should aspire to greatness not grounds. Anyone with a loan can open a subpar eatery and poison our children, we must take back our food and make it the envy of the 2nd world again. We as Americans can change this for the better; food is the right of every citizen.”

    “You are simply to dumb to…” – could there be a worse spot to miss an ‘o’?

      Yeah, pretty bad. I fixed it.

      Look at it this way, at least I’m not in charge of what you can consume.

    Some judges do not seem to recognize the constitution.

     If this ruling seems wrong, consider what just happened in a federal court in Texas.  A Dallas business owner, who was involved in a civil dispute and paid millions of dollars to lawyers, and when he objected to their fees, they had a “friendly” judge seize all of his property, without any notice or hearing, and essentially ordered him to be an involuntary servant to the lawyers. The business owner has been under this “servant” order for 10 months and is prohibited from owning any possessions,  prohibited from working, etc…

    Here are some actual quotes, on the record, from the judge in this case:

    THE COURT: “I’m telling you don’t screw with me. You
    are a fool, a fool, a fool, a fool to screw with a federal judge, and if you
    don’t understand that, I can make you understand it. I have the force of the
    Navy, Army, Marines and Navy behind me.”

     THE COURT: “You realize that order is an order of the
    Court. So any failure to comply with that order is contempt, punishable by lots
    of dollars, punishable by possible jail, death”

    This black robed despot has a god complex…

  • Glorious Red Leader

    We should be cheering this bold, progressive ruling.  The rate at which milkshakes are bringing boys to the yard is unsustainable in a free society.

    This is why understanding the difference between a constitutional republic and a pure democracy is crucial to maintaining a free society. The founders debated whether or not to add the Bill of Rights to the constitution due to fear that leaders would later interpret these as individuals only rights. In a free society only actions which effect the rights and freedoms of individuals other than oneself, may be brought into question from a legal standpoint. This way the above mentioned, clown of a judge, would not be able to emphasize that it is about “fundamental rights”. Natural rights ARE fundamental rights, and include all things which do not interfere with the freedoms or property of other individuals.

    Where do we donate to the impeachment of this incompetent judge?

  • Randy Boring

    Never mind impeaching this particular incompetent judge: http://host.madison.com/news/local/crime_and_courts/article_f25f22b3-4a89-50e3-8d32-06da1adb92f2.html
    He gave up his position effective 4 days ago and is pursuing private practice as a lawyer.
