Monsanto’s Food Safety Bill S-510 Set for Vote Today
Constitution Party ^ | 11/16/2010 | Darrell Castle

Posted on 11/17/2010 12:09:29 PM PST by Mortrey

# Preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. # It will more than likely make Michael Taylor (mentioned above) the Food Czar. # End U.S. sovereignty over its own food supply by forcing compliance with WTO guidelines.

An chemical/bioengineering agribusiness dictating food policy.

What a great idea.

It passed cloture today - http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=111&session=2&vote=00250

Surprisingly, Chambliss and Isakson voted against it - even though they helped sponsor it.

Did you notice how they rushed this terrible bill to the floor in secret ___ ? Now government has taken over all food in the US.

It will be illegal to grow your own gardens or give veggies to friends. All organic food will be outlawed. Vitamins will also be illegal.

Food supplements of all types will be outlawed. Hundreds of thousands of Americans will be put out of work by this terrible law. And Monsanto's key man will be appointed by Obama to become the Food Safety Czar (ie rewarding open bribery of Congress Critters via campaign donations !)

And I have been posting warnings about this terrible bill since 2006. Really kicked up my efforts in 2009. But nobody would listen. Nobody cares. Kind of shows me how deeply freepers really give a sh!t about anything . . . NOT !

Trying to warn the people was a total waste of my time. Alors quoi de neuf? . . . Now I have other fish to fry and must get very busy with many new projects . . .

The food freedom revolution doesn’t fall neatly into Liberal/Conservative. It falls more along consumer safely versus liberty. Of course, the government often uses the former to simply increase its power and control. That is what this bill does.

This is a really, really bad bill and I hope it goes down.

Watch "Food Inc." Yes it is biased but it shows how the big food corporations get positions on gov't panels and push through policy that hurt the little guy or push their agenda.

The organic milk producers wanted to have in writing on their bottles "synthetic hormone free" The USDA voted it down. Guess what? The USDA was head by a guy at the time who was an ex Milk Producers President who was against it because it may may regular milk look bad to consumers.

All Those two RHINO’s Chambliss and Isakson did was vote agains’t cloture. Chambliss wants an ammendment to exclude small farms beyond $500,000 in annual revenues. He wants to be able to whine about protecting the small farmer later when the SHTF over all this and the FDA is running roughshod over the American citizenry. This whole piece of legislation is an outrage. The fact that any Republican would vote for it is proof positive that we are in deep doo doo.

A lot of small farms just went out of business even though the food contamination problems are in the big industrial food producers.

I guess corrupt money is still worth something in Washington. This is the invisible tyranny. No one is paying attention to this. Our most basic freedom is choosing what we wish to eat. This bill severely limits that freedom in order to benefit the big food companies.

Worse still, it is quickly leaving us with what many believe are only unhealthy choices. They are forcing a dairy black market. It is crazy and corrupt.

If anyone reading this is new to the issue, I recommend a book called "The Raw Milk Revolution". That book is about more than just milk as it covers food freedom issues in general. It is absolutely shocking what has happened in the last 3 years and no one is covering it.

Yes, I saw the article that came out later today with Chambliss’ remarks, after I responded to the ping.

You are preaching to the choir here - I was in no way showing support for these two.

Here is the full text:
http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=s111-510
It would be nice if it could be published complete as amended without all the [<struck out] notations but maybe it’s done just to make it difficult for any one without a staff to understand.
I didn’t find anything that requires my cat to be bio-chipped (she wouldn’t like it) or affect my friend’s garden – she doesn’t sell anything. It would create a huge and expensive new bureaucracy.

When did this bill pass, and can you send me a link. I was highly opposed to this, and posted either late 2008-2009 on this.....unbelievable.
This year I’ve dealt with Alzheimer parent, and pain in ar$e relatives, who have no clue....sorry I did not get more input on this.

Thanks for heads up, this is a terrible bill to pass.

You might as well add the 2 Georgia senators - they voted against cloture but they sponsored the bill. Chambliss said he voted against cloture because he didn’t like some of the wording that was added - it appears that he still supports the general idea of the bill.

Several Georgians and I are getting the same runaround response - both Senators are refusing to listen to anyone.

...and I’m saying, there is more here than meets the eye. Anytime both senators from WY and John Thune vote for cloture, something is up. These three are not your Susan Collins and Olympia Snow Republicans, and are not in the business of selling out America. Research time.

Hatch was one of the original sponsors, I thought.

I can predict that Hatch does NOT get past the Utah primary in 2 years.

Jason Chaffetz will wipe the floor with him.

Biggest problem is finding a very strong replacement for Chaffetz.

And these are the great white hope for rolling Obamacare back until we can repeal it, huh? It was an easy vote when they were in the minority, I am interested to see how it’s going to play out now that they have the power to at least defund it. Their votes will be worth a lot more now. The people who screamed and yelled in their faces opposing Obamacare when they wanted conservative votes? Who were those kooks? A majority of Americans from both sides of the political spectrum you say? Aw, who cares? It hasn’t cost oBamBam a thing, his lot are already off on the next fire we set-oops I mean the next great cause, let me check-yes, it’s DADT. They’ll be too busy stomping that huge (and I must say very well-designed) fire out. our colleagues on the right have assured me that they can set fires faster than their consituents can even react to the last ones they set. While they’re still bleating on about “Obamacare”, we’ll be setting an abortion fire over here, and a DOMA fire over here. They can’t keep up, bwaaahaahaahaa, while we get down to the REAL work which is just none of their business. Now see Pelosi, I told you we could work together if we tried-now get ‘em out there setting all those little fires so we can attend to the real business at hand.

"The greatest threat to Communism is the farmer." ~ Anonymus

You probably don't know that if Monsanto's terminator seeds contaminates a farmer's crops, that because Monsanto's seeds are Patented, then Monsanto will OWN ALL THE CROP OF THE FARMER!

By watching the Documentary film, "What In The World Are They Spraying," you will learn that organic crops in places like Hawaii are being destroyed by the toxic levels of Aluminum, Strontium, Barium, (and more) from Chemtrails leaving these toxic substances in their soils, and now the Organic Farmers will be forced to begin using these Terminator Seeds which have been specifically designed to grow crop in soils contaminated by the toxic chemicals in Chemtrails. Watch the film. Decide for yourself.

“If that’s the case, could these groups file suit against this law on the basis of religious persecution? “

Their exemption is probably already in there -
just like their Obamacare exemption.

Seems like only the Amish, Mennonites, and Black liberation theologists have true freedom.

FWIW, I e-mailed Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) on this. I mentioned that this would shut down some co-ops, farmers markets, and restaurants, and these establishments were mentioned by name, since these are establishments she has made appearances and some possibly frequents. No, not stalking, underlining the local impact this folly will have. This bill is not only food supply control, it is the continued war against small business. There are liberal constituents (crunchy ganola variety, not the limousine liberals from Edina) here in Minnesota who are also against this bill. This should be made a We the People issue.
