Gotta love these smucks who write this stuff, they are getting smoother.  Bottom line is that once passed the bill sets into motion an unknown quagmire of consensus building with respect to small direct market operations, places the university extension services as a educational venue. The same bunch that has misdirected farmers for generations and has led to the ultimate demise of this country’s ability to be self sustaining in food production. The selection of these group members will certainly be based on arse kissing individuals who would willingly sell their souls to the devil for a place at the stakeholder’s table.  Never mind that in light of the bill’s non interfearance with the WTO the big corps have their get out of jail free card.  With local municipalities entering into comp plans that state cooperation(subjugation) with other governmental agencies, the stage is set for any infraction to be charged as a municipal violation thereby voiding most procedural requirements(due process) because of the mass of flow through the courts. see Wisconsin v Monchilovich.  This is evidenced with the appearance of county food inspectors, and food handling certifications requirements for at least one person in any given facility.   

 Anyone found in noncompliance will be dealt with as a smuggler, which clarifies the context given of a state or country moving goods into the United States (federal corporation). 

  Being sane the act of any individual or group involved in consensus building or offering an esclusion or amendment, must be viewed as an act of treason in that their acceptance of the authority to grant authority to impose sanction solely on “reason to believe” is nothing more than condoning the violation of due process. see Screws v. U.S. 

  On this there can be no compromise, for any who “hold these truths to be self evident.” 

Are we to be deemed pirates by merely offering sustenance to another?  See Maritime Law.

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.
