In reading this “companion bill” to S.510, one has to wonder: 

Isn’t this Rosa Delauro’s HR 875 come to life?  Fines imprisonment and all?

Does this mean the FDA is actually going to force the labeling of genetically modified contaminated foods? 

Would not the inclusion of substantially altered food products, alterations which were so diverse a patent was issued on them…..wouldn’t these qualify as misbranded and adulterated if the label does not specify what genetic alterations had been made and how much of the product on the shelf was made up of unnatural food-like creations?

Would the selling of cloned meats also qualify for misbranded and adulterated if the label does not state the product is the result of cloning? That the meat does not come from natural processes?

Will labels on meat and dairy products now state that they contain the residuals from antibiotics, vaccines and hormones? What about the labels on grain products?  Will the labels now list the level of residual herbicides and pesticides present in the finished food-like product?

Will labels now include the information that eating genetically altered food could harm your health and that independent studies have shown damage to internal organs, fertility and DNA may result from consuming genetically altered food-like products?

Will gene slicing between plants and animals now be indicated on labels?  Will we know, for example, if the strawberry’s that look so appetizing are really just strawberry’s, or, are they a combination of strawberry and swine? Will the label now read “Pigberry’s”?  I’d like to know!

Will the surgeon general attach a warning label to all genetically altered food-like products that those foods could be harmful to your health?  We did it with cigarettes…..it isn’t like it hasn’t been done before.

Apparently none of these things are of concern to those illustrious royals in congress.  Reading this companion bill you can see the intent is to raise revenue and to regulate small farms and ranches right out of the business. 

The bill listed below is the “enforcement” through establishment of police state provisions and the change to the corporate code of the federal corporation a.k.a. The United States, government.  If these provisions were intended to in any way reign in the horrendous activities of bio-piracy corporations, or to end the push to submit the sovereign citizens of the US to unlawful foreign agreements and global organizations, most likely we would cheer their passage.  The fact is that they aren’t intended to apply to anyone except small producers who don’t have banks of hired gun attorney’s and wads of cash to pass out.  These now “criminal acts” are focused on YOU!

Senator Leahy, Senator Franken……shame on you.
