video: Food Safety Bill Passes House/Senate, President to sign, Gardens illegal?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptUeglSvhAM
Organic Farms, Back Yard Vegetable Gardens and animal farming destroyed by "The Food Safety Modernization Act"

"[S 510] would preclude the public's right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. 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." It is similar to what India faced with imposition of the salt tax during British rule, only S 510 extends control over all food in the US, violating the fundamental human right to food." ~ Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistle blower.

"Section 3 which is the definitions portion of the bill-read in it's entirety. section 103, 206 and 207- read in it's entirety.
Legally binds state agriculture depts to enforcing federal guidelines effectively taking away the states power to do anything other than being food police for the federal dept.

Effectively criminalizes organic farming but doesn't actually use the word organic.
Effects anyone growing food even if they are not selling it but consuming it.
Effects anyone producing meat of any kind including wild game.

Legislation is so broad based that every aspect of growing or producing food can be made illegal. There are no specifics which is bizarre considering how long the legislation is.
Section 103 is almost entirely about the administrative aspect of the legislation. It will allow the appointing of officials from the factory farming corporations and lobbyists and classify them as experts and allow them to determine and interpret the legislation. Who do you think they are going to side with? [italics mine]
Section 206 defines what will be considered a food production facility and what will be enforced up all food production facilities. The wording is so broad based that a backyard gardener could be fined and more.
Section 207 requires that the state's agriculture dept act as the food police and enforce the federal requirements. This takes away the states power and is in violation of the 10th amendment."

S. 510 the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US.

You will need it if we dont get a President!

Absolute nonsense. The bill does not do these things.

See these threads please:

Trying to convince people the bill does these things when it clearly does not, or that it applies to people it clearly does not apply to will work to bring about the very condition you are so afraid of, but which does not exist.

See this thread as to why:

Laws are only laws when you decide to follow them

they won't tell me not to have a garden.

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must. like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.-Thomas Paine

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

I do NOT like this bill at all...

But the fact is that the government, as it stands now, does not have the personnel to enforce this stuff.

Beside if gardening were to be outlawed...wouldn't that just "wake the masses up"?

They could enforce it with the Department of Homeland Security..

The death squad knows no laws. I should know given what I spied them doing, over yonder, in Oregon state...

That's illegal & they didn't like the video..

I personally don't believe death squads are in our future

and there just aren't enough DHS agents to control 300 million people without our compliance. imo

Who says the Bankers ever played fair.....

They can bring in the now bankrupt Blackwater and Aerial Assault Drones into America if they get antsy enough....

I have seen this reality on television....It's what they used all over Kuwait and Iraq. Disgusted beyond belief with the Defense Department. When all bets are off, don't even second guess what they'll simply do.

Cheney and Paulson make the Bankers in charge of our country look like Saint Rosemary...

Everyone with a backyard

Everyone with a backyard should start planning and planting now - after all, we are only taking Michelle O's advice, right?

What a lovely hypocritical first family we have.

I would like to thank ALL the right -wing chickenhawks!

Who didnt say one word on the radio to help stop the travesty .Not Hambone or Lush or Laura ingrown toenail or Leven or Micheal Weiner. They stayed completely silent while this bill passed.I wonder who PAID them off. Some friends they are!

And once Again The Traitors in Washington

Do not listen to the people who put them in office.

This is a real POS of a Bill & must be Repealed to allow All Organic Farming - Veggie, fruit, animals etc to be exempt Totally from this bill

Keep on contacting your Reps & let others know about this Evil POS Bill

"You Cannot Stop An Idea Whose Time Has Come"

Factory Farming in the Developing World

In some critical respects, this is not progress at all.

Walking through Bobby Inocencio's farm in the hills of Rizal province in the Philippines is like taking a step back to a simpler time. Hundreds of chickens (a cross between native Filipino chickens and a French breed) roam around freely in large, fenced pens. They peck at various indigenous plants, they eat bugs, and they fertilize the soil, just as domesticated chickens have for ages.

The scene may be old, but Inocencio's farm is anything but simple. What he has recreated is a complex and successful system of raising chickens that benefits small producers, the environment, and even the chickens. Once a "factory farmer," Inocencio used to raise white chickens for Pure Foods, one of the biggest companies in the Philippines.

Every Able bodied man and woman, stand and resist the Banks of England.

Let them eat lead.

"Our power is in the chronic shortness of food and physical weakness of the worker because by all that this implies he is made the slave of our will, and he will not find in his own authorities either strength or energy to set against our will. Hunger creates the right of capital to rule the worker more surely than it was given to the aristocracy by the legal authority of kings."
