Posted on 11/17/2010 12:09:29 PM PST by Mortrey
# Preclude the publics 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.

What a great idea.

Not good this bunch.
Man oh man, I just want the government outta my life!
I’m sure they have our best interests at heart. The market will take care of itself.
I actually feel some common cause here with some of the far-lefties who have been screaming about Monsanto for years.
FYI - Ping
Surprisingly, Chambliss and Isakson voted against it - even though they helped sponsor it.
Me too. My SIL is an extreme liberal hippie from the 60s and she and I actually agree that this bill is horrible and our own senator is a co-sponsor.
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.
Too late now. It’s all over. Monsanto won and the people lost. Hint: Better buy lots of vitamins very quickly.
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.
so did orrin hatch
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:
It would be nice if it could be published complete as amended without all the [<struck out] notations but maybe its done just to make it difficult for any one without a staff to understand.
I didnt find anything that requires my cat to be bio-chipped (she wouldnt like it) or affect my friends garden she doesnt sell anything. It would create a huge and expensive new bureaucracy.
