The more I read, the more I realize how close we are to losing our national way of life forever. In fact, I think it has already happened.
As a novice homesteader just getting my own self-sufficiency operations going, I am greatly concerned by the news of the Michigan DNR, which is only one state to the east of my location, slaughtering and causing famers to slaughter “invasive species” pigs that were no threat to anyone. How long until my state would force the local organic farmer I buy my bacon from to do the same.
Oh? You don’t think this news will affect you because you don’t own a farm? Where do you think YOUR food comes from?
In anticipation of the DNR arriving on the scene, one farmer engaged in what can only be described as a heart-wrenching task of shooting his own pigs, one by one, including baby piglets before the DNR arrived. This was to avoid being arrested as a felon. His livelihood is now completely destroyed, as the state of Michigan has put him out of business. Even after this farmer informed the DNR that he had destroyed his entire herd of pigs, the DNR continued to illegally acquire a search warrant by providing false information to a court Judge, then conducting an armed raid on his ranch to verify that the entire herd of pigs had indeed already been shot to death. That this took place satisfied the DNR, which is now showing itself to be engaged in the mob-style destruction of targeted farming businesses through its mass-murder agenda of Michigan’s small-scale farm pigs.
