Michigan government forces farmers to destroy vast amounts of healthy food while homeless U.S. children and veterans starve

Very often, there is nothing so destructive and harmful as government bureaucracy, in which nameless, faceless automatons make decisions based on inflexible, arcane and inane rules.
And it isn’t just the federal bureaucracy; states can be just as guilty of blindly implementing policies that are clearly idiotic. Take Michigan, for example, and the subject of food.
As reported by Daisy Luther, the “Organic Prepper,” at LewRockwell.com, “While Americans in the nearby city of Detroit face life in third world conditions, unable to even afford running water, the state of Michigan decided to direct its resources towards cracking down on a small food co-op in Standish for having the utter audacity to provide milk, butter, cream and eggs to people who bought shares in the organic dairy.”
Luther said the Michigan Department of Agriculture (MDA) is the culprit here; they “must be so proud of their deeds” after forcing Joe and Brenda Golimbieski, owners of High Hill Dairy, as well as Jenny Samuelson, owner of the My Family Co-Op, to “dump out 248 gallons of milk, to break 100 dozen eggs, and to destroy an undisclosed amount of fresh cream, butter and cheese” because, ostensibly, the state didn’t get its pound of silver.
‘This is such a shame’
