More Gov't Regulating life! Now I did my digging and couldn't find a reliable source to back the wild claims in the OP, nor did the summary contain anything that screamed OMG, however, it was another layer of Bureaucracy to fix... what? MORE food safety? Why not shore up existing programs, regulatory bodies and inspection processes instead of something like this, that creates MORE Gov't?
⚧ C.T.L.W. You figure it out
My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
Reading is fundamental, troll.

which was a conclusion shared by dan
such as telling a woman what she cannot do with her body kind of regulation of one's life? or the telling gay couples that they cannot have legal recognition similar to the marriage of a man and woman; that kind of regulation of someones' lives?More Gov't Regulating life!
you must have missed the variety of instances when potentially toxic materials were found in food shipmentsNow I did my digging and couldn't find a reliable source to back the wild claims in the OP, nor did the summary contain anything that screamed OMG, however, it was another layer of Bureaucracy to fix... what?
you must also think that a terrorist would never use our food supplies as a way to introduce biological agents against us ... so why regulate and monitor it [/sarcasm]
you would be the FIRST person to whine that Obama failed to protect us if the nation was afflicted by foreign food stuffs, either intentionally or by chanceMORE food safety?
what new agency does this establish ... or does it actually beef up the systems we now have, by tightening what and how they monitor our food stocksWhy not shore up existing programs, regulatory bodies and inspection processes instead of something like this, that creates MORE Gov't?
Seriously you guys you need to think this through before you start posting. This bill doesn't even fit your stereotype of these hippy liberal kids that are all about growing their own "crop". Why would they want to take our right to grow food ourselves and why in the hell would the government ever bother with checking food at a roadside stand?

"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
here's THE BILL - full text. I did a very thorough once over on it, and NOWHERE did I see it mention private food production at all, much less regulate it. So...read it and get back to us when you find the smoking gun...
Oh...and the rest of you wringing your hands about this: are you really so brainwashed as to think that your local law enforcement officers, much less FDA of DHS agents are going to waste the manpower to sweep through neighborhoods looking for contraband tomato plants just so that Dick Durbin can make sure Monsanto controls all of the food production in America?
Take it off:
Tax & Spend > Borrow & Spend. But it seems that now we must tax and NOT spend.
I reject your reality, and substitute my own.
If you want an idea of what lack of food regulations looks like go read The Jungle.
