S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US. It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money.
“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
It is similar to what India faced with imposition of the salt tax during British rule, only S 510 extends control over all food in the US, violating the fundamental human right to food.
Monsanto says it has no interest in the bill and would not benefit from it, but Monsanto’s Michael Taylor who gave us rBGH and unregulated genetically modified (GM) organisms, appears to have designed it and is waiting as an appointed Food Czar to the FDA (a position unapproved by Congress) to administer the agency it would create — without judicial review — if it passes. S 510 would give Monsanto unlimited power over all US seed, food supplements, food and farming.
History
In the 1990s, Bill Clinton introduced HACCP (Hazardous Analysis Critical Control Points) purportedly to deal with contamination in the meat industry. Clinton’s HACCP delighted the offending corporate (World Trade Organization “WTO”) meat packers since it allowed them to inspect themselves, eliminated thousands of local food processors (with no history of contamination), and centralized meat into their control. Monsanto promoted HACCP.
In 2008, Hillary Clinton, urged a powerful centralized food safety agency as part of her campaign for president. Her advisor was Mark Penn, CEO of Burson Marsteller*, a giant PR firm representing Monsanto. Clinton lost, but Clinton friends such as Rosa DeLauro, whose husband’s firm lists Monsanto as a progressive client and globalization as an area of expertise, introduced early versions of S 510.
S 510 fails on moral, social, economic, political, constitutional, and human survival grounds.

This will never pass. It'll have to be decreed by Obama's Food Czar.

this is one of the most sinful issues facing america today, it really makes me sick to see that a company such as Monsanto who owns the food(GMO)[genetically modified]rights to 95% of all seeds, maybe even more. now they want all the rights by taking away the right to grown our own healty food. it just sickens me to see how money rules in america. your already being taxed for the air you breath. clean air tax.
one day mark my words there will be a peepee and a poopoo tax on how much peepee and poopoo you dodo.

If voting REALLY did any good, we would not be in the mess we are in right now. Voting is a farce designed to make the sheeple think that they have a say in what goes on.

Just once I'd like to see an interpretation of a bill that actually references the bill section. Can anyone do that for this one? It's about 260 pages long, and searches for "individual" and "home" haven't turned up anything yet. I can't alert people if it's not actually in the bill.

It's not per se that its written in there, but what the law will allow for, should it pass, is the government to be in control of all food. It "expands" their authority to regulate food, this is what the bill outlines ...

(1) food facility reinspection; (2) food recalls; and (3) the voluntary qualified importer program. Requires the Secretary and... See More the Secretary of Agriculture to prepare the National Agriculture and Food Defense Strategy. Requires the Secretary to:(1) identify preventive programs and practices to promote the safety and security of food; (2) promulgate regulations on sanitary food transportation practices; (3) develop a policy to manage the risk of food allergy and anaphylaxis in schools and early childhood education programs; (4) allocate inspection resources based on the risk profile of food facilities or food; (5) recognize bodies that accredit food testing laboratories; and (6) improve the capacity of the Secretary to track and trace raw agricultural commodities. So ..........

in theory they would be given the power to say that a farm or a grower does not fall into one of these categories or meet these criteria of being considered safe food.

Could it be a bit of a stretch? Maybe. But in the long term, I don't think so. The bill is not in a final state at this time.
