No Joke Folks, the Food Safety Modernization Act will be voted on next week and will change local food production and access forever. 

Some recent news clips to peruse for yourself:

Does your head hurt yet? Yup, it's pretty compilcated. Here's a synopsis.

The Good: 
Not much. Advocates say that due to all the contamination problems of late -- the spinach, the eggs, the peanuts [problems, uhm, that were created by Big Ag]  -- that WE the people need this legislation to protect us from ourselves. So what's wrong with that? Really, this bill is about corporate control of our food supply. More power will be handed to the FDA [yes, the same FDA that 
conducted RAIDS on raw milk farmers] with more food inspection rules and higher compliance costs not only for the big ag guys but also for the small family farms which will make it impossible for them to compete. 

The Bad:
What was good about S.510 was the Tester-Hagan amendment, which exempted small scale farmers from burdensome provisions. But then the Big Ag guys, who vehemently argued that this bill was NOT about anti-competion, 
came out last week to protest this amendment. I know, it's shocking. Not.

The Very, Very Ugly:
Well I'm not the expert here but here is a quote from someone who is, and that kinda says it all:

"If accepted [S 510] would preclude the public’s 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 one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God."

-Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistle blower

Don't take my word for it. Here are 12 reasons why S.510 is THE BILL FROM HELL.

Do something. Do it now. 
Call your Senators today. Tomorrow is too late.

Sustainability is a political choice, not a technical one. It's not a question of whether we can be sustainable, but whether we choose to be. - Gary Lawrencent
