Farmageddon the Movie: This Coming Saturday and Sunday in the Twin Cities!

A couple of weeks ago I put up a post about this eye opening movie coming to the Twin Cities. Well the times is here.

Just how important are the issues that Farmageddon covers? Read a couple of quotes I've included below and see how you feel about your freedom and right to eat healthy food.

"There is No Right to Consume or Feed Children Any Particular Food;There is No Generalized Right to Bodily and Physical Health; There is No Fundamental Right to Freedom of Contract." 
~ US Dept of Health & Human Services and US Food & Drug Administration, 2010

"...'no, [people] do not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a dairy herd;
'no, [people] do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow;'
And in a kind of exclamation point, he added this to his list of no-nos: 'no, [people] do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice...'"
~ David Gumpert, TheCompletePatient.com,
quoting Wisconsin Circuit Court Judge Patrick J. Fiedler, August 2011

“[Peoples] assertion of a ‘fundamental right to their own bodily and physical health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families,’ is similarly unavailing because [people] do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish.”
~FDA after Rawsome raid

How do these quotes make you feel? 
Do you have as much freedom to eat what you desire as you thought?  
What happens when have to become completely reliant on a government to provide us with their version of "healthy food"?
