Ohio AG Dept. & State's Top Cop Sued For Food Co-Op Raid

There are 40 comments on the www.newswithviews.com story from Jan 7, 2009, titled Ohio AG Dept. & State's Top Cop Sued For Food Co-Op Raid. In it, www.newswithviews.com reports that:

NWV News, Sarah Foster --

It’s been over a month since a team of 10, heavily armed sheriff deputies, at the behest of county and state agencies, conducted an aggressive mid-day, search-and-seize raid of the home of John and Jacqueline Stowers, owners of an organic food co-op called Manna Storehouse in LaGrange, Ohio -- and tore their world apart.

The couple has not yet been charged with a crime, but they don’t have to wait to become defendants in a trial -- they’re the plaintiffs in a court action launched by two advocacy groups on their behalf.

How nice to see that Cleveland has not lost its completely cross-wired penchant for misdeeds.

Next thing you know, Dennis Kucinich will be chaining himself to the Stowers front door. Ewwwwwwwww.

They should just eat Cheetos and pork rinds, and get heart bypasses like the rest of us.

Kucinich is one of the only honest Rep in Congress.

Look, just because you smoke crack up in BC does not mean the rest of us do. Kucinich is a fruit cake.

Look, I have lived in Cleveland over half my life. I have watched that goof ball lie, cheat and steal his way into all sorts of nutty situations. If you want him, you can have him, cheap. In fact, you can just have him.

You don't know what you're talking about in regards to Kucinich. Regardless if you agree with his politics, he's very open about what he believes and therefore very predictable. What do you mean "fruitcake"? You mean you think he's gay? Firstly, what does that have to do with anything? Secondly, I'm pretty sure he's not gay.
I don't agree with Kucinich's politics in general, but look at G.W. Bush. With him you had a big spender of taxpayer's money posing as a conservative. Did you like that?

Oh, I don't? I have over 20 years as an Eastsider...so why don't you go talk about something you know about, for a change.

I watched Kucinich chain himself to the gates, pander to the union workers, whine and cry about how the "common man" is being robbed, all the while he was part of the City of Cleveland, one of the most systematicly racist institutions whose very existence is dependent on the class envy it has vomited for the last 50 years.

Ever been to Hough and 40th or so? Driven all the way down Broadway? Had dinner at the Red Chimney in Slavic Village (where the cop was shot and killed?). Ever had to walk down Buckeye (Zesty Pizza is the best pizza I have ever eaten, even better than Chicago or New York)? Go ahead and tell me about those and you will have some credibility with me. Otherwise, you are just another Marxist Kucinich groupie that read his website and wants to "steal from the rich and give to the poor".

Kucinich is one of the last true Communist/Marxists left in American politics.

But you are right about one thing. I don't think he is gay. His new wife is HOT!

You'll have to educate me further. You claim he lies. I don't see that, though I've only known about him since he's been a representative in San Francisco. He's all about socialism, it seems to me. I don't see him claiming otherwise. Did he say he was not socialist when in Ohio?

I'm saying Bush claims to be a conservative when he is a social conservative at best. This is the worst of both worlds to me. He's against abortion when it's convenient, but he's a free spender. He'll dole out money to corporations and a totally unnecessary war in Iraq at the drop of a hat.

At the end of the article, he points out that the violent raid was to send a message that this kind of 'producer to consumer' arrangement will not be tolerated. It is as if the local agencies are there to ensure that all groceries will be bought at large chain grocery stores or walmart.

Amazing, we are suppose to bow down to this tyranny? Our gov. does not secure our food supply & when people try to buy healthy food this happens.

This struck me too.
"The irony of Chad Stowers serving his country overseas while government agents raid the family farmstead was not lost on author and Business Week columnist David Gumpert, who has a blog where he discusses food and health care issues and cases like the raid on Manna Storehouse.
“[Chad]’s been there [in Iraq], separated from his family, for the last five months, supposedly protecting our rights from abuse—the sort of abuse that appears to be taking place on an ever-more-frequent basis at farms and food outlets around the country,” Gumpert observed in an online piece he titled: Seems U.S. Forgot to Tell Navy Seabee Chad Stowers the Real War is being Fought Here …and He’s the Enemy.
Gumpert says that he asked Katie if she was aware of “the irony of her husband putting his life on the line in Iraq, while she was being held at gunpoint in her home by American law enforcement officials, and she said,‘It occurred to me.’”"

Kucinich is a goof ball. He has always been a socialist/Marxist.

He never lied about that. The lies I was referring to is the fundamental lie of the promise of Marxism and Socialism in an uber-urban setting like Cleveland, the jewel of the rust belt.

Regarding Bush, you must be new here, because if you have seen any of my Bush posts, we are in agreement. He was never a conservative, but a social Republican. Fiscally, he is as bad as any Democrat.

We do disagree on the war. While I don't like the war, I do not think it would have been prudent to ignore the totalitarian behavior and even the potential for WMD's in Iraq. Personally, I would have turned that area into a glass parking lot and just assumed the assets, but that is probably why I am not the President.

I am from BC. I live in Central Ohio. There is a lot of crack smoking going on in Ohio. I'm not one.
Can you make a list?
