Nationalized food?

Say goodbye to the small town American farmer.
No more tomato stands on the side of the road.
Forget the fresh chickens from the coup.

All your food will have to come from the grocery store. All your food will have to be checked through the government. Don’t dare to grow corn in your own back yard or they just might come after you.

This legislation is so broad based that someone with a backyard garden could have their property siezed.

On the table before Congress is HR 875 which was introduced by Democrat Rosa DeLauro from Connecticut whose hubby Stanley Greenburg WORKS FOR MONSANTO. Does something smell fishy? Oh, watch out you salmon farmers.

Remember Monsanto is the world’s biggest producer of herbicides and genetically engineered seeds and wouldn’t they love to throw the small farmers out of business.

H.R. 875 is called the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009 and if you want to talk about Socialism, here it is. This horrific bill would establish a “Food Safety Administration” within the Department of Health and Human Services. The mandate of this new department would be “to protect the public health by preventing food-borne illness, ensuring the safety of food, improving research on contaminants leading to food-borne illness, and improving security of food from intentional contamination, and for other purposes.”

Section 3 of HR 875 defines what type of establishments would be subject to the regulations in this legislation. It that section, a “food production facility” is defined this way:

The term ‘food production facility’ means any farm, ranch, orchard, vineyard, aquaculture facility, or confined animal-feeding operation.

Stalin nationalize farming methods that enabled his administration to gain control over the food supply? Stalin used the food to control the people?

HR 875 gives the government the power to regulate what is “safe” farming. and therefore farmers are not using enough herbicide on their plants to be “safe” or they aren’t following the same “quality control” procedures as the big guys they could be instantly put out of business.
So if you want to go to the local farm stand and buy some fresh strawberries just picked by farmer Jed who uses no pesticides, you won’t be able to.

And what about meat? You won’t be able to go to a local farm and pick your cow. You won’t be able to buy fresh farmed milk. And the only fresh egg you will see is in a carton.

What will America be without the roadside farm stand?
What will happen to our families if the freshest blueberries they get to eat are from Chili?
How will our children know the fresh taste of watermelon if the only one they taste has been shipped from Mexico?

We cannot allow this bill to pass.

We need to be free to feed our own people!

    Thanks for giving us information about our produce! One of the joys of living on Martha’s Vineyard is enjoying fresh fruit, veggies, chickens etc. from our family farms. There is nothing tastier than freshly picked tomatoes, strawberries and corn. We Moms have a voice. We better start speaking up before it’s too late!

    They can’t stop us from foraging can they? What will they do, use crop dusters to kill all wild vegetation? LOL I know it’s not funny! These people have WAY too much time on their hands, they need to work with their hands, and garden, and do housework like us housewives, and they will not have time to dream up all of these stupid ideas. You need to team up with MaryJane Butters, if you haven’t already.

    There are actually plteny of particulars like that to take into consideration. That could be a great level to deliver up. I offer the ideas above as basic inspiration but clearly there are questions just like the one you deliver up the place crucial thing might be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged round things like that, but I’m positive that your job is clearly recognized as a good game. Each girls and boys really feel the impression of only a second’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

  6. Prior to digital cameras we would send our film to be developed which could be as short a wait as 1 hour or as long as a week depending on where and what was being processed.I shoot film. So, I’ve learned to sit back and wait out this “need” for the instant.

  8. Kim, that would be fine. I honestly have trouble differentiating the taste of raisins and dried cranberries. Cherries or really finely chopped apricots would also be great.
