$1.6 Billion and 18,000 additional government employees for S.510, the Food Safety bill, are up for a vote in the Senate any time within the next 60 days. S.510 is one of the most dangerous pieces of legislation thus far.
Since 2008, the Obama administration has increased the FDA budget by 135% to an astounding $4.03 Billion and yet Senators want to add another $1.6 Billion and double the number of employees. Why? Is our government trying to institute fascist control over our nation’s food supply? You decide.
“If accepted, [S 510] would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God.” ~ Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health Whistleblower
The US already has an over-funded government agency responsible for food safety. One must ask themselves why this new legislation (S.510) is needed. It doesn’t take a mental giant to understand what’s going on.
Let me be direct; Americans do not want the “transformation” that this government intends. Reference: “The Obama administration is proposing to increase funding for … the agency’s effort to “transform” the way it regulates food and medical products” and FDA Requests $4.03 Billion to “Transform” Food Safety System, Invest in Medical Product Safety, Regulatory Science.
Perhaps this video will provide a better understanding of what the Obama administration is attempting to do:
In 2007, the FDA Commissioner stated that the FDA Mission is as follows:
“FDA is responsible for ensuring the safety and high quality of more than a trillion dollars worth of products that are critical for the survival and well-being of all Americans — products that include some 80 percent of the United States food supply, all human health care products, electronic products that emit radiation, animal drugs and feed, and cosmetics.”
The only way to determine whether food is safe is to test it, right? I didn’t see any test equipment in the hands of the government employees raiding that store, did you? Does the FDA Mission specify that the government has a right to conduct armed raids on food producers or stores?
These types of raids are happening now, so imagine what will happen if S.510 passes.
I urge you to contact all Senators and tell them to VOTE NO on S.510.
Update: Government Moves on Food Supply
Why did GREG JUDD and LAMARR and a couple
of other Convervatives sign on to this
Will they please explain themselves to the
citizenery so that we will understand?
Hi Cape, They signed on because they didn’t read it. They took the word of Progressive Dems/Pres. If they actually read the bill, they wouldn’t vote for it, that’s for sure.

Where exactly in the bill does home gardening become a crime?
It’s covered throughout the bill because nowhere in the bill is there an exclusion for home gardening.
Here’s the link to the bill:
As you read the bill, you’ll see that the context applies to all food – it gives the FDA complete control over any person, group, company or organization that produces, grows or raises food if that food is distributed in any way, or is consumed by anyone other than the producer.
It doesn’t distinguish between food sold or given away, which again means all food. When the regulations derived from this bill are written, the government will have every right to make it illegal to give away food from your own garden.
What’s also scary is that it implies food that’s not inspected by authorities can violate this legislation. Again, incredibly broad. There’s clearly a reason a bill like this would be intentionally so broad.
Where it specifies that they’ll build “food defense capabilities”, they don’t provide specifics, and when they talk about a “facility” it can be anything. The bill shows they’re also taking economic concerns into account (can be, for example, home gardens provide food that would otherwise need to be purchased), and if they decide to nationalize the food industry as they’ve done with other industries, home gardens would undiputably impact their financial bottom line.
Given the bill is 266 pages, they had every opportunity to clarify and exclude home gardening, but they didn’t. S.510 is that broad, and it simply must not be passed.
