Can You Live On Hope?

If the Obama Aristocrats in this country have their way, we all may be reduced to begging.

We received this email from a friend and also believe, after some examination, that "the implications ARE frightening!"

H.R. 875: Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009

"This is one scary bill! I strongly urge you to get involved! The implications are frightening! Natural News wrote a pretty good short article, and I've included important addresses to save you the time and effort. Please pass this on to all the people you know who might be affected by food production (or the production of herbs and essential oils) or just interested in their rights. I think its clear that Monsanto is at it again."

HR 875 Introduced Feb 4, 2009, has been referred to committee

This bill is of serious concern to all U.S. citizens for many reasons. First is the formation of a Food Safety Administration, which appears to be the food equivalent of Homeland Security. Another is the very broad language used to describe the authority of the proposed FSA and who or what would fall under FSA jurisdiction. As written, the Food Safety Modernization Act could eventually be used to limit or eradicate everything from organic farming to backyard gardening. It also strips state controls over food production, yet another erosion of the 10th Amendment.

Representative Rosa L. DeLauro (D - CT) sponsored the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009 HR875:

- Her husband, Stan Greenberg, has MONSANTO as a client.
- She received $180k in donations from agribusiness PAC's.

There are 39 cosponsors of this bill. It could be a tough battle. Information and contact of your rep and the committee members are only a few clicks away!

It is important to voice your opinion to the committee members as well as your Representative. The best time to address concerns about a bill is while it is under consideration in committee.

Lose your property for growing food? "Big Brother legislation could mean prosecution, fines up to $1 million"

Another link with more information: Could the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009 be the End to Farmers’ Markets and Organic Farms?

And . . . just to be fair, here's a differing viewpoint on The Huffington Post.

"The only thing that is humiliating is helplessness."

So they make you dependent. First they take away your ability to think, fill you full of lies and phony beliefs, take away our jobs, our homes and businesses, our children, our right to self defense and last but not least, our right to grow our own food. They already got all our money!

More than just a food issue. For 40 years America's Aristocratic Elite have plundered the Middle and Poor Classes and Third World Countries. Systematically taking away their self-esteem, their value as human beings and as sovereign nations. The price we all pay for the right to be members of the community of Nations. Or, are we really looking at "pre-revolutionary France" in America?

  1. Another good analysis of HR 875: http://www.ftcldf.org/news/news-02mar2009.htm

    Note that there are other "food safety" bills in Congress, as well as HR 875. Take a look at: HR 759*, HR 814 (NAIS), HR 1332, S 425 (NAIS), and S 510. All these bills are one-size-fits-all and would regulate small farms the same as a large factory farm. But small farms are not the source of food safety problems.

    All these food safety bills need text like the following added:
    “Rule of Interpretation

    “No provision of this act shall be deemed to apply (a) to any home, home-business, homestead, small farm (including organic or natural) agricultural activity, social club, association, church, school or other local organization, (b) to any family farm or ranch, or (c) to any natural or organic food product, including dietary supplements regulated under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994.”
