Senate Bill S 510 Food Safety Modernization Act vote imminent: Would outlaw gardening and saving seeds – Mike Adams

November 17th, 2010

(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.

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.

It would create an unreasonable paperwork burden that would put small food producers out of business, resulting in more power over the food supply shifting to large multinational corporations.

How to protest Senate Bill 510

1) Go to Congress.org and type in your zip code in the box in the upper right hand corner.

2) Click on your Senator’s name, and then on the contact tab for their phone number. You can also call the Capitol Switchboard and ask to be directly connected to your Senator’s office: 202-224-3121.

3) Once connected ask to speak to the legislative staff person responsible for agriculture. If they are unavailable leave a voice mail message. Be sure to include your name and phone number.

Give them this message in support of the “Tester Amendment” which would exempt small farms from S.510:

“I am a constituent of Senator___________. I ask that he/she support the Tester Amendment to the food safety bill. The Tester Amendment will exempt the safest, small, owner-operator farms and food facilities and farmers who direct market their products to consumers, stores or restaurants. Food safety legislation should not create inappropriate and costly regulatory barriers to family farms and the growing healthy food movement in the drive to crack down on corporate bad actors. Please support the Tester Amendment and market opportunities for small and mid-sized family farms, and small food processing facilities.”

You may also wish to explain that you oppose the Food Safety Modernization Act in its entirety, and it is a destructive, freedom-crushing law that will destroy the future of food in America.

Remember, America has already lost control over its money supply to the Federal Reserve (nearly a hundred years ago). America has lost its health due to the medical industry and its profit-from-sickness agenda. Now we may lose our right to grow our own food and save our own seeds if Senate Bill 510 passes.

This is a dangerous, tyrannical law that would thrust the American people into an age of darkness and malnutrition. It would criminalize many of the very people growing our food and turn food production into yet another corporate monopoly.

Please take the time right now to contact your U.S. Senator and voice your strong opposition to this bill.

    so, if your broke but you have seeds to grow and you grow a garden and the gestapo come and steal your food because they’re not Monsanto’s seeds is illegal and unconstitutional. its really not so different from being forced to buy heath insurance. whats strange is people don’t condone violence but its so nice of them to show up pointing pretty flowers at you to make the slaves comply. nothing like a nice friendly search of your home. after all there’s nothing to worry about as long as you get on your knees and put your hands behind your back and they’ll put a nice pretty chrome bracelets joined with a chain on your wrists because they don’t condone violence either. to keep you safe they’ll empty the frig and take the contents with them because they need to make shore the food was handed out at your local food distributor, no fresh farm eggs, no meat from local farmers because it may be tainted with nothing and that would be unacceptable. SO IF THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY WOULD POINT THEIR PRETTY FLOWERS AT THE AGGRESSORS WHEN THEY SHOW UP I’M SHORE THEY WOULD JUST NICELY APOLOGIZE FOR THE MISUNDERSTANDING AND MOVE ON. THEY WILL BLOW YOU AND YOUR WHOLE FAMILIES BRAINS ALL OVER THE PLACE IF YOU DO NOT COMPLY SLAVES!

    Unless it makes you feel good, there is no sense in getting all in an uproar about any one bill – the whole system of thinking by all of humanity has to change. And this isn’t possible until AFTER the cataclysmic calamity that’s ahead. My golly, what times we live in!

    Excellent blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many choices out
    there that I’m completely confused .. Any suggestions? Cheers!
