Food Safety or Food Control?

We had mentioned HR 2749 a while back.

It passed in the House.

Some object:

The bill that passed does only two things… it seizes control of food production and supply and then hands it over to big agri-corporations. The remaining content of the bill is a primer on enforcement… meaning all the powers they have granted themselves to prevent you from claiming Constitutional protections, and enabling them to violate your rights on multiple levels… all for food safety of course.

There is NOTHING in this bill that will address, prevent or otherwise affect the safety of food. This was federal encroachment which will be extended to the states with the cooperation of state officials. This bill did nothing but establish a police agency, granting it massive and uncontrolled enforcement capabilities allowing it to make up even more rules to benefit its corporate sponsors, as it moves along.

In its original form--which has been changed--the bill presented a lot of problems for the "Farmers' Market" suppliers/vendors, and the "organic food" growers.
