The S.510 Food Safety Modernization Act

This tyrannical and ‘most dangerous bill’ would outlaw gardening and saving seeds.

(NaturalNews)
‘Senate Bill 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act, has been called “the most dangerous bill in the history of the United States of America.” It would grant the U.S. government new authority over the public’s right to grow, trade and transport any foods. This would give Big brother the power to regulate the tomato plants in your backyard. It would grant them the power to arrest and imprison people selling cucumbers at farmer’s markets. It would criminalize the transporting of organic produce if you don’t comply with the authoritarian rules of the federal government.

“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 whistleblower (http://shivchopra.com/?page_id=2)

‘This tyrannical law puts all food production (yes, even food produced in your own garden) under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security. Yep — the very same people running the TSA and its naked body scanner / passenger groping programs.

‘This law would also give the U.S. government the power to arrest any backyard food producer as a felon (a “smuggler”) for merely growing lettuce and selling it at a local farmer’s market.

‘It also sells out U.S. sovereignty over our own food supply by ceding to the authority of both the World Trade Organization (WTO) and Codex Alimentarius.

‘It would criminalize seed saving (http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/20…), turning backyard gardeners who save heirloom seeds into common criminals. This is obviously designed to give corporationslike Monsanto a monopoly over seeds.

‘It would create an unreasonable paperwork burden that would put small food producers out of business, resulting in more power over the food supply shifting to large multinational corporations.

Good News (somewhat)

FDA Declares Alcoholic Energy Drinks ‘Unsafe’

Why not ban it altogether?

‘Caffeine is an “unsafe food additive” to malt alcohol beverages, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration told four makers of alcoholic energy drinks after a yearlong probe into reports of hospitalizations and deaths.

‘The federal government may seize the products if companies don’t remove the caffeine from them, the FDA said today in a statement. The agency sent warning letters to Charge Beverages Corp., New Century Brewing Co., United Brands Co. andPhusion Projects LLC, the maker of Four Loko. The Federal Trade Commission also sent warning letters to the companies.

‘Drinks combining high levels of caffeine and alcohol have been linked to alcohol poisoning, car accidents and assaults, FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburgsaid today. Twenty-five state attorneys general had asked the FDA to investigate the drinks, which may contain up to 12 percent alcohol per 23-ounce can. Washington state banned the products after nine college students who drank Four Loko at a party were hospitalized…’

LA County Bans Plastic Bags

‘The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to ban plastic grocery bags in areas of the county under its jurisdiction, endorsing a broadly worded measure that proponents hope could become a model for California.

‘The ban, which goes beyond ordinances adopted in Malibu and San Francisco, most directly affects 1.1 million people who live outside the county’s incorporated cities. But anyone shopping at stores in such areas would encounter the new rules…’ Details:

Here’s one ingenious way to stop an event you don’t want:

Mom Calls in Bomb Scare to Stop Daughter’s Wedding

(CNN) —
‘A Russian woman who did not want her daughter to fly abroad to get married told police Wednesday the daughter was going to blow up a plane, officials said.

‘The 33-year-old daughter intended to fly to Morocco for her wedding. But the flight from Moscow to Morocco was delayed Wednesday after the woman called to say her daughter was going to set off explosives, the internal affairs department said.
Investigators later tracked the call to a 56-year-old woman in the Russian city of Yaroslavl, east of Moscow…’ Details:

And here’s a dumb one:

Bride-To-Be Paralyzed by Bachelorette Party Prank

‘A former bride-to-be is now paralyzed and has put off plans to marry after a bachelorette party prank went terribly wrong.

‘Rachelle Friedman was paralyzed from the chest down after her best friend and bridesmaid pushed her into the shallow end of a pool. Friedman, 25, snapped her neck and floated to the surface.

‘While Friedman and her fiance, Chris Chapman, remain a couple, health insurance has kept the pair from tying the knot. Friedman’s health insurance is limited and she must rely on medicaid to cover the cost of her care. Marrying Chapman would mean that their combined income would disqualify her from receiving government help…’ Details:
