anarchy is a society without a government, it has little to do with freedom or oppression at all.
I don't think any of us feel that we should never need to answer to anyone for anything.
I believe that insinuation is disingenuous at best, if not insulting.
I'm not Mark, I don't speak for him. I am a person in the broader community where he lives and I am trying to relay this issue (struggling to explain it the best I can)
I think this is actually a more complex issue than it appears.
I do not believe we are being paranoid in an age where there is a revolving door between the FDA and Monsanto that results in GMO salmon being approved.
I do not believe we are being paranoid when billions of dollars are spent on the "department of homeland security" and "transportation security administration" that do not result in anything but negligible return in safety for U.S. citizens.
I don't think I'm paranoid to believe that Diane Feinstein probably has other interests in mind as she supports "gun control" for my (and other U.S. citizen's) safety.
You can call it paranoid all you want, but poor decisions are being made by governments every day, and very few of those decisions are made on behalf of the citizens, most are made to grow the governments authority or on behalf of financially powerful interests that have close government ties.
In my opinion, I believe the DNR's directive and everything it is based on has little to nothing to do with protecting public safety and mostly to everything to do with supporting corporate interests of big agriculture and agri-food production who make high profits by cutting costs that are necessary to produce high quality food or conserving the environment.
Look guys, I don't even eat much pork. I most often eat lean meats chicken, fish, etc. - and I choose organic foods because I believe I can maintain my health better without ingesting roundup and foreign proteins used in GM food. I'm in my mid-40s and in far better physical shape than most of my friends my age.
I don't have a fight in this game other than I think the DNR is overreaching their authority and the basis of it is something that the state doesn't want to tell the citizenry.
Why else would they stall and gag the case?
