Got this note from W.C. Douglass. Another attempt at inching the small business out. Please act now to prevent this restrictive bill to pass. Pretending to be "enhancement of food safety" it's really just to kill off the small, organic farms. Say no to government control of what you can eat. (Click here to sign the NFS petition.)
Urgent health freedom information
A call to arms to save our food and our freedom!
The very future of organic food in the United States has come under attack. And if we don't act -- and fast -- the health of you and future generations could be permanently compromised.
Congress, in its infinite stupidity, has recently passed House Resolution 2749. This ugly bit of legislation is called the "Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009."
Boy, is that a misnomer if I've ever heard one.
Typical of all Obama legislation, this fascist act was hurried through Congress too quickly for any lawmaker to read it (assuming any of those dolts would have bothered to try).
The farm controls mandated by this law would usher in complete government control of the food supply, and ultimately the end of organic foods. Why? Because it would give the FDA complete power to impose one-size-fits-all regulations on ALL food producers -- including independent farmers.
And because this bill also limits the amount of recourse food producers have in the courts, this means that the FDA will be able to snuff out all the foods this agency (and the influential lobbyists at whose behest this agency tends to act) it wants.
That's right: in one fell swoop, the Obama Administration is about to do away with all of pesky little state struggles being waged against organic farms and dairies, and win the war with one gigantic, fascist law.
All of those good things I've been telling you to consume more of -- raw milk, hormone- free meat, organic vegetables -- would be gone. For good.
Of course, the bill doesn't spell that out in so many words. No one would agree to it.
But since it would impose all manner of standards that would be impossible or unaffordable for small, organic farms to meet, the bill sentences organic farmers to death by paper cuts.
And those farmers guilty of even the most minor infraction of the many new regulations will feel the entire weight of the federal government crashing down upon them -- fines in the millions of dollars, and prison terms up to a staggering eight years.
The bill would even require ALL food producers to register with the FDA... for the hefty sum of $1,000!
But this hideous bill isn't a law just yet. There's still hope -- and that hope lies with you.
Help me defeat this dangerous bill
While the Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009 has already passed the House, there's still time to be sure it doesn't get past the Senate and into range of Obama and his deadly pen.
But I can't stress this enough: the time is NOW.
As you know, I've been an outspoken proponent of organic and natural foods. As Americans, it is our right -- as well as the rights of our children and grandchildren -- to have the freedom to eat the kind of food we think is best for our health.
We must smash this attempt at complete government control of the very food we eat. And that's why I've partnered with the Natural Solution Foundation (NSF), and their efforts to kill HR 2749 in the Senate.
Since 2004, the NSF has worked toward the same goal that I write to you about each week: the support of health freedom in the United States. I think this organization is a valuable and powerful ally in this fight.
I urge you to join me and my partners at the NSF to act now to help put an end to this bill. We've already seen arrogant lawmakers made to cower before the outrage of American voters who are against the monstrous Obama healthcare reform bill. Let them hear your outrage at the Draconian restrictions of this so-called "Food Safety Act."
Remember all that you have to lose. What I'm talking about is bigger than the vitamin D, calcium, and natural antibiotics that you'll miss when you never again have the chance to drink a glass of raw milk. It's about the freedom of small farmers here in our country, and ultimately your own freedom as well.
If you've ever taken any of the advice that I've offered you to heart, please act now. Call both your senators. Write them. Sign petitions. (Click here to sign the NFS petition.)
Let your voice be heard.
Urging you to help keep the FDA at bay,
William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.
