PostSubject: Gardening makes you a criminal bill   Mon Mar 16, 2009 10:10 am

Thank you to a good friend for sending this.

THIS IS ONE GIANT STEP ACROSS THE LINE IN THE SAND...


It looks like there trying to cover all there bases to the sheep dependent on the government.

United States Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) has proposed
legislation, *H.R. 875*, which *would literally prohibit Americans from
raising food* for themselves, their families, or *even for their
animals*, without the */uber alles/ national government's permission!*
Extreme statement? NOT! *H.R. 875 makes Americans serfs on their own
land!* Read on; this one bill could wipe the United States, /as a free
nation/, from the face of the Earth! *We urgently need your help to kill
this extremely dangerous bill!*

*H.R. 875, the so-called Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009 (FSMA)*
sounds innocent enough at first blush, with language purporting 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." In reality, *the FSMA is an
extensive and all-controlling abomination that must be stopped!*

The *FSMA mandates registration* of every "food production facility,"
which the bill defines as *"any farm, ranch, orchard, vineyard,
aquaculture facility, or confined animal-feeding operation;" and every*
"food establishment," which the bill defines as "a slaughterhouse...,
factory, warehouse, *or facility owned or operated by a person located
in any State that processes food or a facility that holds, stores, or
transports food or food ingredients."*

*H.R. 875 makes NAIS look tame.* This bill will not just sweep up
commercial food operations. The fine print of the FSMA will subject
hobby gardeners, home canners, anyone with a few chickens, or anyone who
"holds, stores, or transports food" - including mushrooms or wild
berries gathered in the wild - to registration, extensive management,
and inspection by a huge new bureaucracy, the Food Safety Administration
(FSA)- even if the food items will only be consumed personally. And
registration must be via "an electronic portal," which will be costly
and difficult for those without computers.

*H.R. 875 exponentially advances the "Foodborne Disease Surveillance
Systems" required of member states of the World Health Organization
(WHO)*, which includes the United States. "Food establishments" will be
required to adopt preventive process controls, *including implementing
recordkeeping and labeling of all food and food ingredients to
facilitate their identification and traceability, /including
instructions for handling and preparation for consumption./* This might
sound rather reasonable... until you remember the definition of a "food
establishment" above.

I don't think the American people are paying any mind to what our government is doing! The sleeple are all asleep at the wheel or on their cell phones talking about the scores from last night's games!

What a kook Rosa Delauro is!! lol! Maybe she should visit Hawaii.....the second largest export there is marijuana. A substance that has been illegal for almost a century. But I'm sure she feels sooooooo important writing nonsense laws! And I'd love to see HOW she will fund such a riduculous idea...GEEZ!!

Rosa's husband is a lobbyist for the monsanto company. Watch on google the world according to monsanto, and you will understand why they are trying to pass this bill.
