    If this type of oppressive, intrusive action by the State continues then you can kiss good bye any bake sales, chicken barbecues, steak roasts, pig roasts, etc. in your community. There are similar actions being taken by other State gov’ts regarding private and community gardens and local co-ops. Those who accuse myself and others of being paranoid about things like this need only do a bit of their own research to discover this type of thing is becoming quite common.

    The State Health Department needs to back off on this issue. Until we run out of leaking sewage systems, smouldering burn barrells, leaking fuel tanks, and pharmaceuticals in our water supplies, I think we’ve got bigger fish to fry. The state…needs to focus their evil gaze on the top of the economic ladder, and solve all of those problems first. Leave us alone with our bake sales and chili, cook-offs, and pot lucks until that other work is done.

    Did they get paid overtime to go to Morristown NY on a Sunday morning and show up in force at this thing?
