'No Food Rights' Judge Quits to Work for Monsanto Law Firm

Link to article

"That any official would approve gene patents is bad enough – discovering nature is not inventing it.  But in the Wisconsin case, Judge Fiedler ruled that humans:
  • 'Do not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a dairy herd;'
  • 'Do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow;'
  • 'Do not have a fundamental right to board their cow at the farm of a farmer;'
  • 'Do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice;' and
  • Cannot enter into private contracts “outside the scope of the State’s police power.'
Ruling against raw milk forces consumers to drink genetically modified, antibiotic-laden milk from cows fed an unnatural diet of pesticide-loaded feed.  No doubt that makes Monsanto a major fan of Patrick Fiedler.  His decision was rendered on Sept. 9 and he stepped down from the bench on Sept. 30."
