‘Most Dangerous Bill In History Of U.S.’ – Vote Imminent

From Mike Adams at Natural News:

Senate Bill 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act, has been called “the most dangerous bill in the history of the United States of America.” It would grant the U.S. government new authority over the public’s right to grow, trade and transport any foods. This would give Big brother the power to regulate the tomato plants in your backyard. It would grant them the power to arrest and imprison people selling cucumbers at farmer’s markets. It would criminalize the transporting of organic produce if you don’t comply with the authoritarian rules of the federal government.

“It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God.” – Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower.

This tyrannical law puts all food production (yes, even food produced in your own garden) under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security. Yep — the very same people running the TSA and its naked body scanner / passenger groping programs.

This law would also give the U.S. government the power to arrest any backyard food producer as a felon (a “smuggler”) for merely growing lettuce and selling it at a local farmer’s market.

It also sells out U.S. sovereignty over our own food supply by ceding to the authority of both the World Trade Organization (WTO) and Codex Alimentarius.

It would criminalize seed saving (http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/20…), turning backyard gardeners who save heirloom seeds into common criminals. This is obviously designed to give corporations like Monsanto a monopoly over seeds…

      After 1 min of searching alternate sources, I found a link to the bill’s amendments, one of which exempts anyone who was not required to register as a “facility” under the bio-terrorism act of 2002. Here it is http://thehill.com/images/stories/blogs/smallfarms.pdf
      Maybe it is over-reaching, and maybe, after given a better world, we wouldn’t have to regulate an interest in human well-being over profit. But this is the world we live, and personally, I have no problems with more government oversight over large-scale agribusiness. For local farmers, this brings their competitor’s costs up, while, unless this really is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, leaving their costs the same.

        Don’t hold your breath over that ever happening. Laws like this are drawn up by representatives of large-scale agribusiness to stamp out competition from the little guys. You know where Michael Taylor, the FDA Food Safety Czar, came from, right?

    While I would agree that this is a significant overreach and would fuck the growing organic/CSA/etc agriculture movement in the US, some of the stuff people have written and said about the bill amounts to hysteria.

    If the government was serious about food safety, they would hire tons more inspectors and spend a lot more time in processing facilities enforcing laws that are already on the books, instead of leaving manufacturers to do whatever they want.

      You said it…the bill is bad…as usual…but the hysteria of Adams pushes credulity to its limit…then keeps on truckin forward with joyous abandon off to parts hitherto unknown.

    Fascism, American style. It’s all here. After all, Monsanto own Blackwater, so now they can send their own goon squad to arrest you and possible detain you in some legal black hole, which thank to Patriot Act II that effectively ended habeas corpus, have become the no longer secret government.

      soon you will have no choice to “buy it”……that is the plan…it makes absolute sense that this would be their next step…..our food,,,,,our healthcare…..hmmm sounds like they may have us by the balls……..we will have to depend on them for what we must have in order to survive…..Im sure they will take great care of us….making sure we are healthy and not hungry…providing us with only the best…..never allowing us to suffer or sacrafice for what would benefit them……Thats what this is all about…our welfare……LMFAOOO!!!!YEA OK!

      • Dan Mac

        And this is not the end game. They also plan to go after breathable air. If they can make it scarce, everyone will have to buy it, get taxed on it, and obey every rule to keep from getting shut off. Of course, after secretly, intentionally making the air unfit to breathe they will convince us it was our fault for overpopulating and polluting. Be grateful undeserving, useless breathers!

      No kidding…Mike Adams has been the shrill voice of hysterical psychosis for years now.

      I may not like the bill, since there are any number of real parts that are just giveaways for big agribusiness or unfair restraint of trade for smaller organic producers…that much is perfectly true…but Adams has a brilliant knack for transforming an otherwise routine piece of bad legislative pork into an Alex Jones style panorama of doom.

          no. i voted/wrote-in for Cynthia McKinney. She is also black (if you think the color of your skin is relevant to the character of your soul). Obama is a tool, as are most people on this website whom support him. This will be the last black Friday ya’ll will ever see. My forefathers endured slavery – they were/are black and injured/dead slaves — you white people are about to be the slaves. Whites enslaved whites long before the enslaved blacks. Yeah, good job fools, good job electing a puppet as your president…

      The USA PATRIOT Act was the start of the end of freedom as we knew it.

      • Dan Mac

        I’m reluctant to disagree with this statement, as i agree with the sentiment. But as to the beginning of the end…. It’s hard to point to one event. If I had to I would cite the passing of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913. Of course, I’m neither of African nor Native American descent. In the poor corner of the world my ancestors escaped from I could cite “The Statutes of Iona.” But before that there were Viking, Christian, and Roman invasions. Many momentous attacks on freedom.

        With all that said, the Patriot Act certainly was an egregious and calculated attack on freedom.

    please don’t believe this to be true, this is bullshit propaganda. listen if you are going to sell food in the united states to other people in the united states the food you grow and sell must meet certain quality control standards. the large brands such as green giant, tyson chicken, prairie farms, and any other you would like to name, have standards of quality control for the food they sell in this nation, and the people that grow “organic” food or food for local farmer’s markets are simple being told that they have to meet the same standards any other food producer and seller does. it has absolutely nothing to do with your back yard garden unless you are planning to sell your produce to the public, if you sell your food to other people it has to meet the same standards as any other food sold. this is big brother fear mongering, it’s simply a bill to put everyone on equal footing
