Met libertarian and conservative farmers and learned an incredible amount about farming and nature and science, as well as about government violations against them and against us all. The other side of the fence is nothing like what we've been taught to assume but great people with immense decency.

Seek justice for those now in prison, not only justice to put Cheney there. While Cheney remains free and all of us are being stolen blind by people who will likely never see a day in prison or even fines, let's take a moment to seek justice for those at the other end of the stick

PA Church Ladies Raided by 'Food Safety' Cops A church in Pennsylvania gives an early warning sign of the absurdity and injustice and threat to all community tradition when the state controls "food safety." The "food safety" bills in Congress pushed by industry, covers the entire food supply, and add warrantless entry, surveillance, monitoring, taking of all records, million dollar fines and prison terms, no judicial review, and Monsanto.

Defining "food safety" and thanking cowboys Some don't believe the "food safety" bills would establish control over farmers, farmers markets, CSAs, road side stands, small food processors, our gardens and our own kitchens. But why are people taking any chance by simply denying? Why not make sure? What needs to be included in the bills to ease the worried and to protect even the nay-sayers.

Seeds - How to criminalize them Some cannot believe that HR 875 will criminalize seed banking. "The bill doesn't say any such thing," they say. "It says food safety," they say. And Bush said he "brought democracyto Iraq." Here's how what they say is "food safety" can make saving seeds a crime.

HR 875 - the death of freedom in America It's been obvious to farmers and cattlemen that stopping NAIS is about preserving the most basic freedoms necessary to farm, but if people will take time to read the bill (and there are comments to help them along), they will see stopping those bills is fundamental to freedom for all of us to even exist. WRITE THE SUBCOMMITTEE CHAIR. HR 875 is more dangerous to this country than even the bailout.

A solemn walk through HR 875 Food and Water Watch put out information on HR 875 to counter "myths" and "rumors" on the internet that the bill would criminalize organic farming and take over seeds. It gives no specifics to back up its "facts," so the following close up view of the bill and accompanying commentary offers the reader a chance to decide for themselves what is myth and what is fact.

Monsanto's dream bill, HR 875 HR 875 is a Monsanto driven bill introduced by Rosa DeLauro whose husband works for Monsanto. Michael Taylor, a Monsanto lawyer, waits in the wings to take control our food again, but this time it would be with frightening power over our farmers, our only protectors of our food. This article contains quotes to give only a small idea of what is at stake in stopping HR 875, a dream bill for Monsanto.

Monsanto's Michael Taylor is BAAAAACC...KKK ... this time to control "Food Safety" from the White House Michael Taylor, perhaps stowed away in Hillary Clinton's trunk as a nostalgic reminder of the good ole days when Bill put him in charge of the FDA and he approved rBGH, has reentered government along with her and is hoping to slip into an office ... in the White House, and Rosa Delauro, whose husband works for the Clintons and Monsanto, has betrayed every man, woman and child in country for Monsanto's sake.

The CAFO stench is killing babies while the USDA laughs at farmers A new study out of Wellesley proves babies are dying from CAFOs. Please, put this into the context of the "it's a lie it's about food safety" bills currently in Congress, and realize that the industrial ag corporations causing these deaths are the very ones promoting "food safety." .

Goodbye farmers markets, CSAs, and roadside stands The "food safety" bills in Congress were written by Monsanto, Cargill, Tysons, ADM, etc. All are associated with the opposite of food safety. What is this all about then?

Has Reuters become a PR agency for Monsanto? The following is an article put out by Reuters. What follows it is the response of a farmer. Who is asking pertinent questions? Or perhaps more seriously, who is asking any questions at all?

Guessing at Michael Pollan's take on NAIS and industry's "fake food safety" bills. A quote from Michael Pollan. What does it tell us about NAIS and these bills? And where are green progressives who admire him so much as CSAs and organic farming and farmers markets (to say nothing of farmers themselves) are being stolen out from under them?

The criminalization of seed banking: hidden inside Monsanto "food safety" bills We are facing a catastrophe to the environment, to farming, to food, to health, if the bogus "food safety bills" currently in Congress go through.

Inside Cargill - knee deep in blood Cargill wants those food safety bills. Do you really think they suddenly found religion and are now interested in food safety? And if not, then what is in those bills they want to so dang much that the bills are being pushed through Congress as fast and as silently as possible?

Hillary Clinton and the Monsanto-driven "food safety" bills: Rural Cleansing at its worst The fake "food safety" bills in Congress are a threat to all our lives. Here is fast background on NAIS, which leaves off the even deeper threat of how this all fits in with Smart Grid as part of a global takeover of food.

The literal enslavement of the American farmer In the simplest terms, the "food safety" bills now in Congress enslave our farmers to an industrial system - having to do its bidding or face penalties and prison so severe they function as whips.

No win for the left. Merrigan as the show, Monsanto behind the curtain. HB 875, HB 814, SF 425 and HB 759 (to be introduced later) are the death of organic and independent farming in America. Merrigan's appointment is meaningless except as dressing - like an organic label on genetically engineeered food.

The corporations (Monsanto et al), the soil (Monsanto pesticides), and you. One of the most threatening things happening in the world is the multinational take-over of food, which is the ultimate totalitarian control over people. Two short histories and your move next.

Back story on the take over of the US food supply This excellent back story on NAIS will catch you up well on many things, including the absurdity and lie of any of this being about "food safety."

Vilsack, Monsanto, and what that ham sandwich really costs. The bills in Congress that will industrialize farming and eliminate organic food are not identical. Each is different and each bad in its own special way and they are still coming.
