It was bad enough when the authorities fined a couple of kids running a lemonade stand. In fact that was downright stupid. But if S 510 passes, you won't even be able to feed your family, lawfully, from your own garden! And that's pure maliciousness by our government. Be very leery of this intrusion into our lives, and the cost it will have on our sovereignty. Bill S.510 was introduced in March of 2009 by Senator Dick Durbin, Democrat of Illinois. It was co-sponsored by Lamar Alexander [R-TN], Jeff Bingaman [D-NM], Richard Burr [R-NC], Roland Burris [D-IL], Robert Casey [D-PA], Saxby Chambliss [R-GA], Christopher Dodd [D-CT], Michael Enzi [R-WY], Kirsten Gillibrand [D-NY], Judd Gregg [R-NH], Thomas Harkin [D-IA], Orrin Hatch [R-UT], John Isakson [R-GA], Edward Kaufman [D-DE], Edward Kennedy [D-MA], Amy Klobuchar [D-MN], Robert Menéndez [D-NJ], Ben Nelson [D-NE], Tom Udall [D-NM],
David Vitter [R-LA].
Call your Rep and Senator and DEMAND they don't support this legislation.
You can see the actual legislation here.
And here's an article that describes what the bill would mean for you and me, if it were to pass. This administration just won't reign in their maniacal inclination for power grabs. They may have been somewhat chastened two weeks ago, but they are too arrogant, to willful, and too disdainful to heed any lessons the people might be trying to teach. Watch what your Congressmen are doing these next two years, the danger to our liberty has not subsided.
(NaturalNews) 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 (http://shivchopra.com/?page_id=2)
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.
