                                                     S.3767 (or is it S.3669? Has the number changed   yet again?)

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! More

S.510: And congress moves against the people once again. Who will protect America from Congress and the USDA/FDA?

Go here to find out how much each of our elected officials has been collecting from the lists of supporters of this bill. Then read the lists of supporters: it’s a who’s who of biotech, and big AG.  If you can read these lists and still come away thinking this bill is about food safety, stop reading here; we can’t do anything else for you.

If ever there was a reason to vote the bums and the bumettes out, surely the coming vote on S.510, The Assault on Domestic Agriculture euphemistically called a “Food Modernization Act”, would be that reason.  A “yes” vote on this bill is a vote against the sovereignty of the United States and wholesale capitulation to unlawful trade and harmonization agreements including Codex Alimentarius. Nothing in this Act is intended to, or will, secure the food supply and make it safe.  The safety of food will only be accomplished by keeping corporate federal agencies out of your state!  

The Federal government is once again, knowingly entering into a area where they have no valid constitutional authority and can claim no enabling act or constitutional clause, as a source from which they could derive authority over agriculture.  The misinterpretation of the commerce clause, knowingly misrepresented, cannot facilitate the enactment of this Act into positive, enforceable, law. 

Congress, lacking any constitutional authority, is fully aware they can confer no mandate onto the states causing them to comply with any portion of this Act, has inserted provisions into the Act ordering private corporate contracting to take place between the federal corporations known as the USDA and FDA and other federal corporations, and the state corporations designated by each governor to act as agents on behalf of the state.  This is the only way any of these agencies can gain access to the states; your governor will open the door!  More
