Is big brother in your tomato patch?

BettyJean Kling

Here we go again- We need the truth. I went to the .gov site and for the life of me – I cannot figure out what is going on here. Folks we have got to start digging into these things and find out who is lying to us. Is this a bad law or not? Is the Government trying to prevent us from growing our own tomatoes or not? For two days now I am getting alerts like the one below- HELP- let’s find out before it’s too late- Is it true should we be hysterical and alerting everyone and his brother trying to stop it?

Senate Bill S 510 vote PASSED! – procedural vote passes 74-25  WAKE UP People -Pass this around for all so we the People can get trash like this stopped !

(NaturalNews) Senate Bill 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act, has been called “the most dangerous bill in the history of the United States of America.” It would grant the U.S. government new authority over the public’s right to grow, trade and transport any foods. This would give Big brother the power to regulate the tomato plants in your backyard. It would grant them the power to arrest and imprison people selling cucumbers at farmer’s markets. It would criminalize the transporting of organic produce if you don’t comply with the authoritarian rules of the federal government.

“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 (

This tyrannical law puts all food production (yes, even food produced in your own garden) under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security. Yep — the very same people running the TSA and its naked body scanner / passenger groping programs.

This law would also give the U.S. government the power to arrest any backyard food producer as a felon (a “smuggler”) for merely growing lettuce and selling it at a local farmer’s market.

It also sells out U.S. sovereignty over our own food supply by ceding to the authority of both the World Trade Organization (WTO) and Codex Alimentarius.

It would criminalize seed saving (…), turning backyard gardeners who save heirloom seeds into common criminals. This is obviously designed to give corporations like Monsanto a monopoly over seeds.

It would create an unreasonable paperwork burden that would put small food producers out of business, resulting in more power over the food supply shifting to large multinational corporations.

I encourage you to read more about this dangerous bill at the Food Freedom blog on WordPress:…

  1. HI Betty Jean,

    I just read a summary of the bill. It excludes farms and restaurants. It also delays implemention for small business.

    Does not reference usage or types of seeds only that they will be issuing a standard for production and distribution centers to decrease food borne illnesses.

    Maybe I’m naive but I don’t want anymore Cilantro and Lettuce deaths, so sounds okay to me.

    • That is what I read – so what the hell is this all about ? There has got to be more to this for all this ruckus- I wrote to these people about what I read and they insist – even our seeds are in danger – there has to be something we are missing here. Did you read all the links they send – are these folks alarmists? We have to get to the bottom of this – The only way to fix this country is to get to the bottom of this left vs right mania- We the People have to find the truth – two wings of the same vulture – People don’t know what to believe and so they give up. Let’s keep asking and digging. Let’s get the word out to search some more . Thanks – let’s not give up too easy – has to be more to this!!! Agreed?

    • Sorry to disagree- but restaurants are ALREADY required to have and document compliance with HACCP (hazard analysis critical control points) for every menu item. SOP for all restaurants for board of health and CYA purposes.
      I have read the bill- could somebody point me to where exactly farms and restaurants are excluded? I did not see that anywhere- though I did see the delay in implementation part for small business.

  2. Agreed!

    I also check who is behind the source quoted. Helps me determine if there is a hidden spin.

  3. HI PMM. not sure what you are disagreeing with? Can you explain?
    I am trying to figure out what this is all about?
    I can’t make heads or tales of it.
    I get two views so diametrically opposed I fear somewhere in the middles is the truth – so i am trying hard to figure it out.
    I am so tired of the party’ play tearing us apart- where does it say either or?
    Can somebody show me the language – the actual language we are upset about?

    That is all I am asking for?
    We can’t go on supposition – we need hard evidence- I am asking to see the actual verbiage- does anyone have the proof one way or the other?

    Thanks for stopping by and if you can point me to it – I will be forever in your debt- same with the Pay fairness act!

    I swear to God these two parties just jack us around to keep the majority at each others throats and I intend to call them on it!
    thanks again for any help you might offer!

    The Starvation of America Continues With The Passing of S510
    November 30, 2010
    tags: farmers under homeland security, food, sb 510by rightbill
    .Here are just a few points contained in this bill, thankfully provided by Health Freedom USA. Just think about what is in this bill and then go throw up as I have.

    1. It puts all US food and all US farms under Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, in the event of contamination or an ill-defined emergency. It resembles the Kissinger Plan.
    2. It would end US sovereignty over its own food supply by insisting on compliance with the WTO, thus threatening national security.
    3. It would allow the government, under Maritime Law, to define the introduction of any food into commerce (even direct sales between individuals) as smuggling into “the United States.”
    4. It imposes Codex Alimentarious on the US. A global system of control over food. It allows the United Nations, World Health Organization and Agriculture Organization to take control of every food on earth and remove access to natural food supplements.
    5. It would remove the right to clean, store and thus own seed in the US, putting control of seeds in the hands of Monsanto and other multinationals, threatening US security.


    10. It uses food crimes as the entry into police state power and control. The bill postpones defining all the regulations to be imposed; postponed defining crimes to be punished, postpones defining penalties to be applied. It removes fundamental constitutional protections from all citizens in the country, making them subject to a corporate tribunal with unlimited power and penalties, and without judicial review.

    Just as the ‘kabuki theatre TSA’ has nothing to do with real airline security, the S510 Food safety bill has nothing to do with protecting the American people and food safety. This is simply one of many attacks on our freedoms, Health care, False Airport security, Stimulus bills that only pay big dog sell outs and now a full court press to take over and gut our food supply. Saul Alinsky and Barack Obama Senior would be proud!

    The attacks continue by Obama and the progressives. Our new congress will have mountains of shredding to do in January. American people continue to stand. We will get our country back!


    The starvation of America continues with the passing of S510


    Soros is also 2nd largest holder in Monsanto Corporation, who’s X CEO is high up in the FDA, and stands to profit big time when they take control of everything to do with your food.

    Soros is also 2nd largest holder in Monsanto Corporation, who’s X CEO is high up in the FDA, and stands to profit big time when they take control of everything to do with your food. Including disallowing you to save seeds & putting big time burden on farmers that will push all but the huge corps out of business. You’re food prices have gone up … AND YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHING YET!

    When you get into how deep in our stuff Soros is, and how damaging his proposals are. Put that together with his MO which is crashing the economies of countries, which is also Obama’s MO considering his past & who he’s chosen to affiliate with … it paints a pretty vivid picture of their plans for us … Serfdom is the plan, basically slavery. You will have no rights, you will have no means to gain a better life, you will be LIVE STOCK for these people.

    The shameful Senators who voted for this have managed, ( if passed in the House) to put a rope around the necks of the 2.2 million farms in America….hark, our very food supply. Farmers would now have numerous unannounced inspections, increased 7 times in just the next 7 years, while buried in mountains of paperwork and forms to fill out. They would experience psychotic regulations dictating how the farmers grow all kinds of food, what to do with their soil and when, hygiene, packing, even dictating when and where animals can go into their fields.

    By making Farming and the Food industry more expensive, regulated and paperwork heavy it does only one thing, bankrupts America’s farmers and food supply! It has nothing to do with real safety. It has only to do with stealing from, starving and controlling the American people even more.
    It is time to hit back hard in the House and contact our Representatives. Tell them to vote NO on this. Go to and click
