Do you remember this I blogged about it and posted on facebook too. This was (SB 510) Well the Senate passed it on November 30, 2010 by a stunning 73-25 vote! This is crazy, but wait theirs more… The 111th congress changed the name of the Bill, passed it only after 50 minutes of debate, their was no input from the public at all. Then, they funded the whole bill for $3.8 Billion!!! That is right $3.8 BILLION!!! The new Bill is H.R. 3082: Military Construction and veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2010, it became law on December 13th 2010. Below is a description of the bill and the powers that have been given to the FDA, and the Department of Health and Human Services to control what we produce, and what we can do with that same produce or goods.
The new law gives the FDA surveillance powers. If the FDA suspects you’re engaged in the production or sale of a food they deem unsafe, they can place you under surveillance, no warrant needed, no notice to you needed. Why do they need these powers of surveillance you might ask? It is to make sure that no one is producing or selling food on the new list without proper authorization. The new law requires the FDA, under the supervision of the Department of Health and Human Services, to immediately make a list of high-risk foods and require those who engage in the manufacture or sale of those goods to keep the proper records,and produce those records on demand from any government agency. Failure to do so could cost you the farm and your freedom.
What kinds of foods would be on the list? we have to go to the governments website to find that out. Here is the website: www.fda.gov
What can we do? I don’t honestly know. Our government is trying to take away our freedoms everyday. If I want to grow my own food and then sell the excess that we can’t possibly eat I should be able to do that people have done that all through out recorded time.
