It was an auspicious occasion when the Red Army marched into Hungary on April 4, 1945 to liberate the nation from the Nazi's.
Almost immediately, the economy began to flourish. Private businesses began to take advantage of rebuilding a war torn country. Life, once again, seemed hopeful.
Those who survived in my family, took no exception and began to take advantage of rebuilding their broken lives. My Dad and his brother formed their own construction company and began their work, earnestly.
By the time I was born in 1947,my parents were considered middle class citizens. We owned the construction company, a lumber yard, a summer lakeside retreat and our prized possessions 4 beautiful racing horses, trained and managed by Dad's uncle, a famous harness horse race jockey.
The euphoria was short lived. In early spring of 1949 an AVO agent (a Hungarian KGB) came with orders to confiscate all of our worldly possessions in the name of the new Communist government. Those who didn't comply were deported to work the newly formed collective farms or imprisoned in Siberia.
These collective farms were eventually destroyed by those who worked the farms and knew nothing about farming. Thus came the man made famines as it did in the Ukraine in the 30's and 40's.
By this time we had progressed to the 9th. step or plank http://www.jeremiahproject.com/culture/10-planks-of-communism.html of Marx's Communist Manifesto.
Fast forward the clock to April 2012, the state is not Hungary, but Michigan USA. The state government unleashed armed raids on small selected pig farms and forced the owners to shoot all their pigs.
This unconstitutional, illegal and criminal raid was perpetrated under the guise of a new law called "The Invasive Species Order (ISO). It declared that traditional live stock to be an invasive species, whatever that means. http://www.naturalnews.com/035585_Michigan_farms_raids.html
This is clearly a fourth amendment violation of unreasonable search and seizure. It was staged by the DNR in a mob-style manner, targeting farming businesses through its mass murder agenda.
The systematic destruction of private farms began around 2004, but more recently another raid on April 25, 2008 made national headlines and brought this to the forefront. This time the Department of Agriculture and state troopers arrested the farmers and seized their equipments on a dairy farm. Another raid followed in the Amish countryside of Pennsylvania in 2011 http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Raw_Milk_Raid_Timeline
It is evident that Communism has a stronghold in America and Obama is hastening Marx's policies. These are the 10 planks of Marx's policies. See how many we already practice.
1) Abolition of Private Property- this includes massive foreclosures then, taken over by the government
2) A heavy Progressive Tax.
3) Abolition of All Rights of Inheritance
4) Confiscation of Property of All Subversives, (whatever is classified as a subversive)
5) Centralization of State Banks accomplished by a Federal Reserve
6) Centralization of Communication and Transportation
7) Government owned Businesses and Factories and Cultivation of All Wasteland
8) Establishment of Industrial Armies, especially for Agriculture.
9) Gradual Abolition of the Distinction Between town and country through Equable Population Distribution.
10) Free Education for All Children in Government Schools.
America is at the crossroads, our rights and freedoms are being chiseled away. We are harassed by different groups, daily. The question we must address is the following: Are we going to allow history to repeat itself, again? History already taught us the consequences we must bear, if we continue to stay in a state of apathy. We don't get too many chances in life!
May G-d Bless America!
The article about shooting those pigs was horrible! That poor farmer! And what the heck is the DNR doing interfering, anyway? Is privately owned livestock now a 'natural resource'?!
I think you're right, Agi, they're coming for the farms. And they've started with one of the most vulnerable groups among us. The DNR agents probably knew that a non-Amish farmer would have run them off his property with a shotgun!
I've got an uneasy feeling that if we let this go by without bitter protest they'll expand their scope incrementally until we, too, will be victims of a 'man made' famine!
