The Drop in the Bucket Milk Protest of 2009

The Drop in the Bucket Milk Protest of 2009

By word of mouth, by email, by telephone and by U.S. mail, dairymen are organizing a large hay-roots protest that they expect will cripple America on May 31st and June 1, 2009.

Dairy farmers are conspiring to withhold milk from processors for two days later this week. They are calling their protest:

The National Don't Ship Milk Days.

How effective will this protest be, and how crippled will the food sector become after this threatening and unprecedented action?

We suppose it will have the same impact as the Adhesive Tape Manufacturers two-day strike in March of 1960. Remember how quickly Velcro captured Scotch and 3M's lost market shares?

Or, the three hour gasoline protest targeted at Exxon last February. That worked quite well, and as a result of one hundred and seventy two dedicated American anti-oil activists, Exxon has only made a two gadzillion dollar profit this year instead of their projected 2.1 gadzillion.

The Notmilk group supports dairy's well thought out milk protest, and hopes that it continues for the next two years. America's Department of Offense can purchase all the unshipped milk and store it in the Arabian desert for a few days, then ship it to Afghanistan and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) in Northwestern Pakistan.

Talk about the ultimate weapon of mass destruction!

Hopefully, it wasn't anything I said...
