A frequent complaint of villians against heros like James Bond, "Why won't you just die?!" is also an appropriate question for one of the most despicable bills Congress has been trying to push through, S.510.
They went quiet about it last year after massive outcry, but it's back again - and this year they're trying to push it through without debate or media coverage! You can get all the details at Food Freedom - they have a great, brief video that will explain it.
The basics, however, go like this:
1. Our government has declared that we, the people, DO NOT have the right to choose what we eat or what goes into it.
"There is No Right to Consume or Feed Children Any Particular Food; There is No
Generalized Right to Bodily and Physical Health; There is No Fundamental Right
to Freedom of Contract." ~ US Dept of Health & Human Services and US Food
& Drug Administration, 2010
2. The US food supply is already horrifically contaminated, daily poisoning the population and leading to serious health consequences like cancer, behavioral and neurological disorders and sterilization. (Yes, I can provide documentation of all of the above.) If this bill passes, Americans who have been choosing to limit their exposure to this contaminated supply by producing their own food and purchasing from local and/or organic suppliers will be criminalized.
3. Private citizens will not be allowed to grow their own gardens. Seriously.
4. Monsanto and its ilk will continue their uninterrupted destruction of modern seed stock and genetic biodiversity among crops.
Please, please, please - take two minutes to:
*watch this video
*pass the information along to everyone you know
*and write, call, email, stalk or otherwise impress upon your legislators how completely unacceptable this ambomination is!
