The food system isn’t broken: The government just won’t get the hell out of it

“Had this bill been about food safety, it would have contained provisions to expand and support family farms and ranches; it would have encouraged the entry into, and support of next generation farmers and ranchers. Instead of shoving Agenda 21 mandates on us  that come with titles such as “Best Farming” Best Land Management” and other idiotic WTO platitudes that are anything but the best practices, this bill would have encouraged gathering of generational knowledge about the land, the animals, crops, harvesting, food storage and preparation”

Why is it, every time the jackasses in the District of Criminals have run some program into the ground, squandered massive amounts of dollars while letting corporations write bills that benefit them and rape and rob the states, they always come out and say; “the system is broken”.  “We’ve got to fix the system, it is broken”.  It’s an emergency!  We have to do something right now!  And that is all quickly followed by one phony “crisis” after another as they try to scare the public into believing the “crisis” just magically and mysteriously appeared.  That’s just how bad the system is broken!  Like the magic egg contamination that just somehow appeared the week before they pushed S.510 the fake food safety bill onto the floor of the Senate.  How damn handy was that?!  Never mind that FDA knew about that way back last March when it was initially detected in Oregon.  A contamination that was allowed to reach epic proportions so that it could be used to scare you into thinking the only thing that could have saved us from these terrorist eggs….was S.510.

The battle over S.510, The Fake Food Safety bill is not over.  At stake are the severely reduced numbers of family and independent farmers and ranchers who have historically been the backbone of our economy and who produced the safest and most abundant food supply in the world.  If the intent of S.510 was to preserve and protect our agricultural sector, I would support it.  The fact is, it is intended to industrialize agriculture and centralize it in the hands of multi-national corporations.  While USDA and FDA and Homeland Security and a host of other privately owned government corporations, harp about the centralization of the food supply and how this must be avoided, the truth is, they are intending to do just that.

If this fake food safety bill had actually been written to deal with food safety in the US, it would have been centered on several key issues, none of which are addressed in the bill, and would not be focused on how to criminalize the ownership and control of agricultural property and the products derived from it for family and independent producers here in the US.

Now then, wouldn’t you have thought that if food safety and the security of the food supply was the true agenda in S.510, there  would have been a concerted effort to restore and replenish back up supplies for the people of the US if this bill truly was about food safety and security?  And who in their right mind, knowing that we have no reserves, throws the door open to exports and encourages the exporting of food products and supplies as preferential to securing the supply here at home?

What was absent from the bill was any concern for the…
