Who would believe that seed banking will be criminalized or manure made illegal or that seed cleaning equipment is already illegal this year? They are all on a short list of "sources of seed contamination" in an innocent looking document within the FDA (though the absence of pesticides or chemical fertilizers from that list is a tip-off of who has had a hand in this).

"If there is no substantial public outcry heard before March 15 of 2009, it will be difficult to impossible for Granny to have laying hens, for your daughter to have a pony, or the organic farm across the street to grow veggies.

Only in the last decade have the demon doctors of big agriculture finally come up with a plan so devilish that it just might succeed in running farmers off the land for good. Can you imagine America with no family farms? "Take a look at current House bills HR 814 and HR 875 (Senate version S.384). They are driven by Monsanto, a large corporation that has eyes on controlling all the world's agriculture. These bills will strangle family farms in red tape, and levy confiscatory fines, causing farmers to simply give up.

Then the Big Ag corporations can grab their land, snapping it up at bargain prices." There are alleged "food safety" bills in Congress right now (HB 875, HB 814, SF 425 and possibly soon, HB 759) which are - to put it plainly and truthfullly - the death of organic farming and independent farming in America.

One, at least, merges the USDA and FDA, immensely corrupted agencies, into a more powerful, centralized agency that gives even more power to Monsanto and other corporations which have influence there.

These were introduced one week after Vilsack in a press conference said they weren't thinking of doing that yet [Do your best to remember the recent centralizing of all the intelligence agencies and the loss of rights that entailed for urban groups ... and then apply it many times magnified to rural people in our country in order to get an inkling of how things are working similarly.

In both cases, multinational forces we fear are getting hold of massive tax-payer funding - in the name of safety from terrorists or safety from germs - to set up huge data banks and across the board spying and abrogate an endless list of civil and human rights.

Now realize that on the farming side, the farmers will actually responsible for buying and maintaining the spying equipment, for staying accurately spied upon and file the reports on their own lives, for turning over DNA, for easements on their land to allow for warrantless entry onto property, or face ten years in prison and $500,000 penalties .]

What is the FDA doing? 

"First, it is providing a means whereby key individuals on its payroll are able to obtain both power and wealth through granting special favors to certain politically influential groups that are subject to its regulation. This activity is similar to the 'protection racket' of organized crime: for a price, one can induce FDA administrators to provide 'protection' from the FDA itself.

"Secondly, as a result of this political favoritism, the FDA has become a primary factor in that formula whereby cartel-oriented companies in the food and drug industry are able to use the police powers of government to harass or destroy their free-market competitors.

"And thirdly, the FDA occasionally does some genuine public good with whatever energies it has left over after serving the vested political and commercial interest of its first two activities." - G. Edward Griffin, World Without Cancer. Hillary and Bill Clinton are deeply involved with Monsanto , often called the most evil corporation on earth. The people introducing these bills are friends of the Clintons and/or have their own close connections to Monsanto which is working aggressively to take control over food around the world, whether through patenting of seeds and animals, buying up fish farms in India or privatizing water - if you need it to survive so will be willing to pay through the nose for it, Monsanto is out there ahead of you, getting control over what you need .

After doing your part, trust in the intelligence, our universe, and go back to farming, gardening, loving your neighbors and living peacefully.
