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

(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.

    Bring it on. I'll be an "outlaw", and I will defend myself and my right to produce my own food to the death. I ain't joking. Just try me…

    Terrible; no to Senate Bill S 510; this is war against people and small farmers to protect the big agro-industrial interests.

    Wow…you gotta be joking me….how much control is enough? It's times like these where George Washington is rolls over in his grave. We used to be the greatest free nation in the world…

      I was just saying the exact same thing to a friend of mine. It's so hard to watch everything our founding fathers fought so hard for just slipping away right before our very eyes.

    I'm going to buy more seeds and guerrilla garden, but foraging in the forest will probably be illegal too. There will be fierce fighting and death for sure. Remember the Ukraine and Holodomor?

    Some interesting parallels there..

    WOW! I took time to read the full article in the link provided, and I just am baffled by what was written! I just don't know where people come up with these things! I am hoping it was some kind of twisted joke but I fear many people seem to believe these things to be true. After discussing this bill the other day I took time to read and research SB510. Only one thing in the 260 some pages really stood out and the author of this article seemed to forget to add that to his article. The only people effected by SB510 will be those who grow their own produce and give it away or sell it and make over $500,000.00 per year in doing so. How many folks do you know know that make $500,000.00 from their garden each year? Further checking, I discovered that locally, (Ohio) in a 3 county area we have 5 Farmer's Markets. I spoke with enough people in each area to discover that all 5 Farmer's Markets make no where near $500,000.00 combined per season! A little common sense and research can go a long way to find the truth.

      While the income limit does make this seem a little less threatening the fact of the matter is that most mid to large scale farmers can hit that limit very easily depending on their capacity. And beyond that, all it takes is them getting their foot in the door with this bill giving people the perception that it won't apply to them because of the dollar limit and before you know it, the limit is lowered and lowered until finally it does apply to everyone. The last thing we need right now is more oversight and regulation by an agency that has proved itself to be incapable of doing the jobs it has already been assigned.

      Do you have any idea what the corporat farms and monsesanto are doing with their GMO food and textile crops??? If you think that the elites and wanna be inchrage people are way out there wait until they control the food. Someof us don't get to the farmers market and depend on organic foods from the supermarkets. How do you think that this will affect the price??? They are driving us out of existance.

      We are where we are now because it was small bites they were taking out of our liberties. DON"T YOU GET IT!!!!!!!

      The FDA just said that there is no foundation in law for individuals to have a fundamental right to eat the type of foods they want. DO you understand what they mean??? We don't need a law to give us permission but they insist we do or there is no foundation in law. This means that they think that all authority do do anything is the governments to hand out when and if they see fit.

      ARE YOU STILL IN THE DARK!!!!!!

      ya but give them an inch and theyll take a mile

    Here is the deal… You have John Mc Cain to thak for this, sooooo….I would make sure that he gets all your grief over this BS including as many people in AZ that you know writing letters to this NAZI. I do not care what kind of BS this guy spouts let him ahve both barrels. I suggest making it impossible for his office to receive calls due to the day and nigh calles and emails to this morons office. Repub or not this is big business whinning. No family farms or organic farms were responsible for the ecoli problems. Corporate farms that use, you guessed it, immigrant labor that take a crap in the fields and then go back to picking food. Ecoli is a human borne bacteria that comes from the bowels….. LOOK IT UP!

      You have an excellent point! Ecoli is growing "out of bounds", not just because of humans – but also because of cows: eating GMO corn. Their 5 stomachs can't handle it, become inflamed and cause the ecoli. Did you see the movie Food Inc! Well, it really goes farther than that. We just have to educate people! They needs the facts! Contact groups, organizations where there are alot of people – at least the try is well worth it.
      The S510 bil passed the Senate November 30, now it needs to go to the House and Pres.
      This bill will ALSO: will Remove access to Natural Food Suppliments: vitamins and minerals and teas and – anything else that will heal you naturally.

    Apocalypse here we come…

    That is insane! My wife and I keep a backyard garden every year, and I will be damned if I let the government control whether or not I can eat fresh tomatoes on my B.L.T. They already tried to pass a bill pertaining to food storage, and the FBI is spying on preppers. Freedom my hairy, white ass. If Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, and Henry were alive to see this, they'd start a whole new war. As Patrick Henry once said, "Give me Liberty, or give me death." It's impossible to have liberty when our own government is trying to become dictators.

    SECESSION NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The boys in grey were right ……………..hows it working for you now ?

  11. Barbara April 1, 2012 at 4:38 pm #

    Wow, and some people plant gardens to grow food that helps the food banks out to feed the poor people. Do they want those people to starve?

  12. Faith August 12, 2012 at 9:48 am #

    Mayberry, I'll stand with you.

  13. Faith August 12, 2012 at 9:54 am #

    Your so right. My opinion is if we give them an inch they will without doubt take a mile. WE THE PEOPLE have got to stop this now, not when it does pertain to us. This nation is my birthright, I served her faithfully and I do not want to see her go down this path. May GOD preserve us!
