Sam seems to be addressing every point that is not being made against him. But is he even denying that matter at hand, which my understanding is incorrect labeling?
His argument in the filings so far seems to be that the FDA has no authority to regulate the labeling of his products because (1) they do not contain drugs, (2) they are being sold to "private people" rather than "public people," and (3) his products have never hurt anybody. He can't seem to grasp the concept that saying his products aren't drugs doesn't make them not drugs.
Best I can tell, he had a trial a couple years ago for selling products that weren't properly labeled, and he ended up with an injunction prohibiting him from selling any of his products for five years, unless the FDA agreed that he was properly labeling them. He just changed the labels (some people claim the new labels complied with the regulations) and started selling the stuff again. He claims he couldn't be prevented from doing this because he was selling to members of some "private club" he started and the government can't regulate anything that's done under contract like that. I don't know where he got his legal advice.
