    senate bill s510 makes it illegal to grow, share, trade or sell hoemgrown food.

    Senate Bill S510 Makes it illegal to Grow, Share, Trade or Sell Homegrown Food |

    "If accepted [S 510] would preclude the publicís right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of oneís choice."

    Now that you're scared, here's a link to the actual bill

    S. 510: FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (GovTrack.us)

    I think environmentalists and organic food eating sissies should endorse libertarianism as a way to save their precious homegrown foods. Instead I always hear a lot of "wouldn't it be nice if"'s from environmentalists and organic hippies that fantasize about a big tyrannical state that takes away HFC and Fried Foods and other things that are deemed more dangerous than the expansion of the State. Environmentalists have brought this on themselves. It's time for environmentalists to embrace the free market. San Fransico soda bans and New York salt bans are not done to show support for healthy organic hippie goodness. The state works against EVERYONE. Dismissing everything as some kind of corporate state-capitalist scheme to kill and enslave people with HFC does nothing to protect your organic crops and hippie life style.

    This bill is wrong on so many levels.

    We gotta get rid of them Liberals. Some of us saw this tyranny heading our way. It'll be a great day in this country when everyone can see it.

    I have just read the summary of this bill, and nowhere does it say that growing food is illegal. What this bill does is to allow the CDC to track food borne illness, requires inspection of some food items entering our food supply, provides Homeland Security greater ability to track food that has been altered (which terrorists could do), and places greater protection on food that is imported (good idea, considering some of the crap coming from China that would not meet our safety standards.

    All in all, I like this bill. It does provide a measure of protection from tainted, or altered food, and it does NOT prevent ANYONE from growing their own. My only concerns are the cost, and if the Federal Government has the Constitutional authority to do this.

    The source is a conspiracy nut blog, the bill has languished in committee for a year with almost no action, and it does not do what the blog claims. Now that is impressive.

    The summary of the Obamacare bill didn't say anything about a paramilitary unit that answers only to the POTUS, either.

    Show me exactly where, in the bill, it says that you can't grow your own food. LOL.

    I had a feeling that the environmentalist conspiracy blogs that are covering this bill are jumping at the gun abit. I figured it would just be a good way to do an "if it were true, then--" rant. I'm going to play devils advocate a little bit here though.

    What this bill does is to allow the CDC to track food borne illness, requires inspection of some food items entering our food supply, provides Homeland Security greater ability to track food that has been altered (which terrorists could do), and places greater protection on food that is imported (good idea, considering some of the crap coming from China that would not meet our safety standards.
    As you've said, this bill has the possibility of stiffling production and therefor incuring a higher cost and therefor a higher price. As for imported food, why can't the free market decide that produce from China isn't good enough for them? Isn't it hard to contaminate food anyways? It sounds to me it would be pretty easy to track such a crime which is why it hasn't been done. That's why it's probably better and more successful to commit identity theft and blow yourself up beyond recognition.

    Tainted milk and baby forumula, anyone? Hell, Chinese pet food killed a lot of dogs and cats not long ago. The free market didn't find that either.

    Absolutely. Environmentalist bloggers would rather Alex Jones their way through things or endorse an ever increasing nanny state.
