When one’s eyes are opened to see the deception that has been worked on us, as you give evidence to in this article, they can begin to see a larger picture unfolding.
I know of four news stories just this week that indicate to me that the push is on by the government to gain control of our food:
3. Michelle Obama has said that “obesity is a national security threat.”
4.“Homemade holiday food baskets may give gift of botulism
As the popularity of canning rises, so do the risks — especially when newbies get creative”
To an unsuspecting public, any justification by the government can seem real and reasonable. But to those of us who see our government in a different light, we see these efforts as nothing more than fear mongering in an attempt to manipulate us into accepting further controls.
As we know, any problem that the government needs to fix is a problem they originally created. So, Michelle, give me a break. Whatever the government has allowed to be eliminated from our food, or added to our food, is responsible for the obesity we see in our country today.
GMO’s and further legislative controls will only work to increase the profits of the food industry and advance the agenda of poor nutrition and health for the people of America.
And, this latest story, about “Homemade holiday food baskets…” is the most foolish nonsense.
But, again, you put these innocent sounding ideas in front of an unsuspecting public and you will hear the outcry. We have turned on each other because of color, religion, gender, drug use, smoking, drinking, and soon we will begin to marginalize the fat and the farmers among us.
It would almost seem that some types of attempted propaganda are simply too senseless to work on the public and yet it often still does. i would guess that the success of things like this depends upon the younger generations to succeed many times. Those who are too young to remember a time when canning foods and planting gardens were not simply hobbies but a real necessity.
Common sense should certainly tell anyone that if canning foods was such a dangerous practice it surely would have claimed many more lives in the past and perhaps would have been replaced by some other less dangerous means of preservation like drying or salt curing. Any who have ever encountered a badly canned food product knows it is bad and a sense of smell is normally all that is required to keep one from danger.
What is safe according to the establishment? Only foods which are not foods at all but concoctions of chemicals and foreign dna compiled to make something which tastes close enough to food? It would be nice if the response to propaganda messages like this was to only increase the numbers of those who try to raise and can their own foods.
Can you imagine the reaction of people a century ago if you tried to tell them to eat produce which contained insect or other animal components? Naturally they would have been horrified. The establishment response to that might be "because they were less knowledgeable and more superstitious"... but i would say it's quite the opposite. People of a century ago had something which is lacking now...common sense and an innate distrust of the rich and powerful attempting to push their agenda on them.
S 510 Fake Food Safety bill passed by Senate in late-night sneak attack on small farmers and food freedom
The infamous S.510 "food food safety bill" was passed by the US Senate last night in a sneaky, last minute voice vote. All Senators voted for it, Republicans and Democrats alike. Not a single U.S. Senator -- not even Coburn -- objected to its passage.
With this vote, the US Senate now sends the bill back to the House of Representatives where it is due for a final vote as HR 2751 that would then send the bill to the White House for a presidential signature. This House vote could take place as early as tomorrow (Tuesday).
FDA has even participated in armed raids on small-scale co-ops and membership organizations. The FDA should not be given any additional power.
2. FDA has adequate powers under existing law to ensure food safety and effectively deal with foodborne illness outbreaks. FDA has power to inspect, power to detain product and can readily obtain court orders to seize adulterated or misbranded food products or enjoin them from being sold. The problem isn't that FDA needs more power; it's that FDA does not effectively use the power it currently has. The FDA already has power to inspect imported food yet inspects only 1% of food coming into this country from outside our borders.
3. S.510 (HR.2751) does nothing to address many significant food safety problems in this country, such as those resulting from confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs), genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and various contaminants (e.g., BPA, pesticides, herbicides, etc.).
4. FDA has used its existing power to benefit the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries at the expense of public health (e.g., allowing the overuse of antibiotics in confined animal feeding operations and refusing to require labeling for genetically-modified foods). This bill does not address the fundamental problems at this agency in order to truly protect public health.
5. S.510 (HR.2751) will expand FDA's involvement in regulating food in intra-state commerce, further interfering with local communities. State and local governments are more than capable of handling any problems related to food in intrastate commerce. All the major outbreaks of foodborne illness involve either imported food or food in inter-state commerce.
6. S.510 (HR.2751) will hurt our ability as a nation to be self-sufficient in food production because it has more lenient inspection requirements for foreign than domestic producers creating an unfair advantage for food imports. Giving an advantage to foreign producers will only increase the amount of food imported into this country that does not meet our domestic standards. S.510 (HR.2751) does not address food security -- the ability of a country to produce enough food to meet its own needs.

Congressman Higgins Announces Passage of Food Safety Bill
Is it just me or is the scene really beginning to heat up where it comes to all things oppressive and tyranical in this country? The TSA indecent security protocols.."food safety" legislation... and many i've spoken to having issues with their bank accounts, stricter credit checking...anything and everything to make living without plastic or using cash more difficult. This makes me wonder if "what's next" will involve a serious shift in the economy that will further drive people into the system and away from being able to use their own hard earned cash to buy anything. Something which smacks of "Beast" when you think about it.
Can't eat real food. can't use real money..can't even keep your own body to yourself if you board a plane.
