Agriculture and chemical companies have destroyed life on the planet. Farmers are licensed to kill and lawmakers get rewarded from farm subsidies while our children are eating and drinking from producers that have no love for there neighbors or the environment. The next issue will probably be organics in which they allready have changed the meaning of our food supply. We must all stick together and stop Agriculture from planting tumors seeds in our food supply. Agriculture and its ethanol has allready drove up the cost of every item in the stores while the 288 billion dollar farm bill awaits voting in the US Senate. Call your Senators today and tell them to vote no on this bill and tell them to stop farmers from making vegetables out of our children.

Protecting families that own industrialized farms or that own companies like Monsanto has become many bureaucrats' highest form of patriotism. Let us not dare think that free market processes might lead to a just balance between those who want milk not tainted by growth hormones and those who couldn't care less. Instead, some desperate for patent-profit income have sought relief from Gestapo-like honchos such as State Agriculture Secretary Dennis C. Wolff.

I wonder which one of the hromone using dairies Secretary Wolff will be going to work for when his time in office is over? Are we as consumers too stupid to make up our own minds? For once I'm glad to live in Maryland. I will continue to buy Rutter's milk (at a better price than the bigger dairies) for my kids!
