I wouldn't have thought much about printing these photos that came from a friend yesterday. After all, everything about China seems a bit odd. But then I read a story on a Libertarian email bulletin and it all came into perspective. I'm guessing that Louis Pasteur didn't know what he was doing when he invented pasteurization to prevent disease. China has so many people they don't seem to care about such things. Wikipedia says: Pasteur's research showed that the growth of micro-organisms was responsible for spoiling beverages, such as beer, wine and milk. With this established, he invented a process in which liquids such as milk were heated to kill most bacteria and moulds already present within them. Claude Bernard and he completed the first test on April 20, 1862. This process was soon afterwards known as pasteurization.
Then again we have Fresh Milk in China. Right from the goats in the back of the van. At least they're not getting melamine added to make it "improved" like they have been shipping in dog food to America.
Now we hear from the Libertarian Party bulletin: The Liberty Crier.

Oklahoma Legislator Pushes Raw Milk Delivery To Homes
A Tulsa legislator wants to loosen state regulations of raw milk dairies to allow them to deliver directly to consumers.
“Basically, my hope is that we can make milkmen legal again,” said Rep. Ken Walker, R-Tulsa. “Since these customers already go to the farm, my sole purpose is to let the farmer deliver to the home.”
State law allows dairies to make “incidental” amounts of raw milk sales directly to consumers at farm sites.
Unlike other commercially available milk, raw milk is not pasteurized or homogenized.
Fans say it is creamier, sweeter, healthier and fresher, but skeptics worry about the potential for disastrous diseases – including rabies – to be spread.
Many other states allow home delivery of raw milk, and some allow raw milk sales in grocery stores, Walker said.
“I think people choose raw milk because the process of pasteurization robs the milk of nutrients, and a lot of people think there are health benefits to drinking raw milk,” he said.
Oklahoma Legislator Pushes Raw Milk Delivery To Homes [continued]
Is this progress or is this going backward? We used to have fresh milk delivered to our homes in the 1940s and it was still pasteurized. So why the push to eliminate the benefits of pasteurization since it has been proven to kill disease? Is this fresh (unpasteurized) raw milk movement the product of a mentality whose first priority is legalizing marijuana? Because that is what the Libertarian Party seems to have evolved from. Pot heads.
