US Senate passes the Patriot Act for Food, S510, by a vote of 73 to 25

Today, the US Senate passed the Patriot Act for Food, S510, by a vote of 73 to 25. We can expect to watch the raids on natural foods increase, and we can expect continued malicious prosecution of growers, like the 2-acre gardener in Georgia. We can also expect private food arrangements to go underground, so as to opt out of the increased rules and regulations we can expect from the FDA.

You can surrender
Without a prayer
But never really pray
Pray without surrender

You can fight
Fight without ever winning
But never ever win
Win without a fight

Now get out there and rock.

This is deliberate poisoning.  The FDA never should have been allowed to

over-see organic farming as they are biased.  So much for contacting ones

Senator.  Health be with you.
