Better move your gardens inside people...

The FDA wants control of "small producers" - Senate Bill 510:

Yet another power grab by the FDA to control everything. And if you don't think this will mean things like insane fees or penalties on small farmers or even personal gardens then you need to look over the history of the FDA.

And forget about the producers of raw milk. Those will be hammered by this

Great Leafy Greenman's Balls!!!

We can let a bunch of frakking bloated and greedy suits RUIN our economy but Goddess forbid we grow our own food or have locally produced food!

The only thing, besides others standing up and saying something, is that the First Lady is very very big on sustainable living including locally grown food.

I hope this bill dies a horrible death in committee and never rises again. *spit!*

Fire up your communication devices to your congresscritters people!

Local Produce Threats from National level and local as well.....
The thing is guess who's behind this Bill and its not the FDA?

Yup, Monsanto wants to control our food sources. However, since they've been getting black eyes left and right from their FrankenFoods having problems. This is another part of their game. They have been working to try and force independent farms under their control yoke and force them to submit or out of business.

Also local co-ops have come under siege by local LEOs. San Diego and other places in California have been closed down. Guess who's part of that little venture?

Wal-mart. They want to have local produce in their shelves and short cut local farmers. They plan to try and squeeze out everyone else who threatens this plan. Local mom & pop green grocers and co-ops have become targeted by Wal-mart Franchise Owners who many times are on local city gov't.

So guess who has the police do the dirty work for closing down the competition?
Those very same politicians who own stock in their neighborhood Walmart. The thing is that many of the co-ops that are around colleges like ours is by SIUC. Has protection by the student body and the city council. A surprising an opposite move towards the national trend elsewhere. Our local Wal-mart however, is still trying to be "organic" and trying to force out its competitors like Schnucks and ALDI.
