The Jackasses did it……HR 2749 the Seizure of the US food supply and production passed the House
Farm Wars ^

Posted on 08/01/2009 7:24:30 PM PDT by FromLori

Despite some really eloquent speeches to the contrary, our “for sale” House of Representatives passed the Food Fascism Act….euphemistically called a food safety act, by a margin of about 140 over the naysayer’s.

True to form, Rosa DeLauro spoke about things she knows nothing about and couldn’t care less; Rosa just loves her some Monsanto!

And that exclusion for farms??? Gone! And that includes you organic idiots who thought you had kissed enough behinds to have your industry excluded.

The newly revised bill that appeared overnight after the original was defeated 29th of July, now includes all those farms we were told would not be affected by this legislation. Of course those big agri-corporations made out like bandits. Biopiracy is going to have a profitable future thanks to the political whore’s in congress we call our representatives.

The entire HR 2749 bill was completely wiped and replaced with an amendment that was the text of another bill similar to, but far more lethal than the first. Now, please tell me again that backroom deals and pre-planned votes don’t happen in congress. To make it look bi-partisan, some Democrats voted no, and some Republicans voted yes. This was to make you think they had actually debated and considered what they all intended to do anyway.

The bill that passed does only two things……..it seizes control of food production and supply and then hands it over to big agri-corporations. The remaining content of the bill is a primer on enforcement……meaning all the powers they have granted themselves to prevent you from claiming Constitutional protections, and enabling them to violate your rights on multiple levels…..all for food safety of course.

There is NOTHING in this bill that will address, prevent or otherwise affect the safety of food. This was federal encroachment which will be extended to the states with the cooperation of state officials. This bill did nothing but establish a police agency, granting it massive and uncontrolled enforcement capabilities allowing it to make up even more rules to benefit its corporate sponsors, as it moves along.

Oh! And did I mention this will be done by expanding the FDA? The FDA for god’s sake!

A November 2007 report titled “Subcommittee on Science and Technology, FDA Science and Mission at Risk” doc was a scathing review of the not only the inadequacies of FDA, but the fact that it in no way can assure the safety of food in the United States.

That report cited the massive failure of FDA to perform even its basic functions, going on to declare the agency’s problems were the result of corporate influence and funding. It should have been declared defunct right then and there, but of course the lobbyists who stalk the hallways of congress on behalf bio-pirates and other parasitic corporations just wouldn’t hear of such a thing. I can only assume the report on the massive failure of FDA to operate on even a cursory level ended up in the restrooms to wipe the behinds of all those royal asses who hold down seats in the House and who voted today to end competition for industrialized corporate producers while wiping out family and independent operations.

And it wasn’t just the House that sold us out. In the last few months various organic associations and other assorted producers came out with what they described as “myths on the net” about the intention of these bills. Why…..these bills were not going to apply to family and independent farms and ranches and surely not to organic growers. That was just internet hysteria! I wonder who was hysterical last evening as this bill passed specifically bringing them under the expanded FDA authority? And drinks all around!

I have no doubt that dinner and drinks were being supplied last evening by corporate lobbyists as a way to thank House members for passing this seizure of the US food production and supply. FDA was probably pouring the champagne. I wonder if anyone thought to invite those organic groups?

Maybe they could give everyone a big dose of Vioxx when they arrive, spike it with a Gardasil shot and then wash it all down with a big giant super sized diet soda loaded with that yummy aspartame. This should all be followed by a meal consisting of gmo infected fruits and veggies with a big slab of genetically altered meat just oozing antibiotics, growth hormones and the residues from chemicals of all kinds, shipped in from a country who gave their word they “inspected” the food before shipping it.

After all, thanks to Henry Waxman and his cohorts in Constitutional Crime, that’s what is going to end up on our plates.

I’m taking bets on what will be the tipping point for the upcoming civil war. When our food supply hiccups, that might be the #1 bet.

Yeah, I can’t wait till the garden police come up the driveway. Thankfully we are surrounded by hundreds of acres of fields so there’s lots of room to buy lots of FDA bodies ;o) If those bastards think I’m going to eat meat, veggies and fruit from the grocery grocery store they have another thing coming in the form of a load of buck shot. I can’t wait till they face the farmers around here who are locked and loaded.

Lori, Are you trying to start a WAR?

I bought an entire top round this weekend for just $1.62 a pound, and put up a bunch of meat in the freezer and have five pounds of ground jerky marinating in the fridge that we’ll make into snak sticks tomorrow. Vacume bagged with an O2 absorber, that meat will keep indefinitely.

I also grabbed a bag of “Special trimmings” whcih is what they cut off of flank steaks to make them uniform, for $1.90 a pound vs $3.50 for flank steak. Partially frozen, sliced, marinated and dehydrated, that meat also makes killer jerky.

My neighbor is a hunter and usually gets all kinds of offers of deer and elk meat, and I told him not to turn any of it down this year. We’re going into high gear on jerky this fall...
Last time I checked you could still get a 50 pound bag of American hong grain white rice for $17, and a good bucket to store it in for about $18.

Dried eggs are expensive, but I can recommend a good source, along with other dried and dehydrated products.

“There is NOTHING in this bill that will address, prevent or otherwise affect the safety of food”

Congress is real handy at passing bills that mean nothing according to the title.

I suggest not only do we rid ourselves of them; we jail them for malious attempt to defraud the public.

And what was the model that gave these A-Holes the precedent, courage and temerity to do something like this?

"Click it or Ticket", MADD, smoking bans, etc.

Some of us tried to warn the lifestyle Nazis, but they weren't interested in listening.

And remember boys & girls, when tshtf hoarding food will be illegal. You will have to turn any extra over to the community board association for the anti-starvation of children commission, or some such. Never mind that you prepared and stocked your own shelves. It will be for the common good.

From http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h2749/show

“This bill proposes greater FDA regulatory powers over the national food supply and food providers, namely granting it the authority to regulate how crops are raised and harvested, to quarantine a geographic area, to make warrantless searches of business records, and to establish a national food tracing system. Concurrently, the bill would impose annual registration fees of $500 on all facilities holding, processing, or manufacturing food and require that such facilities also engaged in the transport or packing of food maintain pedigrees of the origin and previous distribution history of the food.”

The FDA is going to REGULATE how food is raised and harvested and TO MAKE WARRANTLESS SEARCHES OF BUSINESS RECORDS!!!

This bill OVERRIDES THE CONSTITUTION!
