You may not think your home garden could ever be regulated by the Dept. of Homeland Security, but if you do not submit your complaint right now, this bill may be approved.

We never thought our farms would be forced to grow only approved foods from patented seeds on the large scale and look what has happened… We lift campaign contribution limits and let corporations buy the politicians and pass their own laws and now our farmers have to pay so much money for regulated seeds and chemicals that they are forced to auction their farms back to the wealthy chemical and seed companies. The majority of the farms in the U.S.A. are now owned by companies indirectly and few individual small growers are left to make sure clean organic food remains available.

The debate of “ownership” can include a few variables. Who owns the land? How much of the farm land is owned clear and free? This means no bank mortgage or active leans with machinery included in the mix. In addition to the land ownership variable, there is also the debate of crop ownership.

The majority of seeds in the world are now genetically enhanced as HYBRID seeds which are a form of “terminator” seed and are owned by primarily one of the main 3 “LARGE COMPANIES” DEKALB, Monsanto and Pioneer. They do not market the seed as a terminator seed because of world opposition but the fact remains that the seeds have been altered and thus “Patented” and protected under Federal regulation.

This also assures the companies an Iron Fist control over the farmer since we are threatened to now buy and grow these seeds or risk being sued! We have to start growing organic seeds in enclosed fields with high security wind-proof fences and 24 hour surveillance to assure a 0.00% possibility that a patented hybrid seed can cross breed in our organic fields. Corporate agents will try to plant their hybrids into our fields and it only take one single plant in a field to shut it down while lawyers drag out years of court paperwork.

The seeds are a variation of Variety and Trait Level Genetic Use Restriction Technology (V/T-GURT) which sterilizes second generation seed and minimizes volunteer plant spreading. T-Gurt seeds are altered to only germinate with the aid of an added spray activator compound which adds to the air and soil pollution.

Even seeds that are not confirmed “terminators” still have “No Cleaning” clauses attached. Over the years our farmers quit collecting their seeds and had no choice but to purchase more. The corporations forced their way into the sales channels and eventually removed all opposition. It reached the point where most all seeds planted on large scale crop land is a trademarked Hybrid. They promoted huge jumps in yield efficiency and hybrid pesticides to partner with the seeds in order to keep us from reading the legal fine print that basically sold our soul to them for the rest of eternity by keeping us from growing any other seed on an adjacent acre.

Another argument the companies are using to promote their pesticide and seed sales is the over populating of the Asian Lady Beetle which the Dept. Of Agriculture imported to stop locusts and other crop pests. Yes, the Asian Beetle needs to be removed from North America but the Dept. of Agriculture should provide a stimulus payment to us for removing the Beetles by hand not by spraying more chemicals on our food. The Beetle has no natural enemies other then freezing temperatures and it is up to us to stop providing them warm places to survive. Then we can reintroduce the American Lady Bug back into the fields the way mother nature intended.

This means, we can not collect the seeds and replant them. Even if we are cleaning our own organic seeds, corporate thugs pay us visits and threaten legal action. Many of us have to clean seeds underground like we are doing something illegal. It is like trying to obtain alcohol during prohibition. Just ask the Arkansas Mayfield family. Read about their story and hundreds like them at:

http://www.organicconsumers.org/Monsanto/farmerssued.cfm

If we do not make similar residual purchases the following season  or sell enough to match our purchases then we are flagged by corporate enforcing agents whom come knock on our door to inquire about the change.

They look at our fields and if there are crops growing without a record of seed purchase, we have to produce proof of ownership. The seed corporations have their lawyers file trade infringement charges and our crop can be confiscated for gene examination. Even if there is not a stray plant in the ditch, the corporate agent will pull a plant and claim it was growing on public access adjacent to our crops.

We can be issued a “cease and desist” order  that locks up our land for months during legal dispute and we are offered a settlement fee close to 33% below the estimated legal cost so most farmers will just pay the companies to leave them alone rather then fight them and face bankruptcy and a lifestyle change. This money then goes to the American Farm Bureau and a portion is promoted as being used to fund college scholarships. This is a sad attempt to make them look like the good guys when all they actually do is decrease their own money that is being directed into the scholarship funds.

Sure, one may want to defend the companies but that would mean you support interferring with mother nature. Nature vs. Science is the oldest rivalry in exhistence. I may support some arguments in approval for technology but very few convince me that the natural solution is not the best solution. If I am sick, I eat healthier foods, drink more water, excercise and pray rather then take medicine or go have surgery. If fate and mother nature decide my time is up, then that is my contribution to greater good. I am not going to defy death and contribute to over population! That is a primary cause to our worlds problems.

DO NOT LET YOUR GREED affect your judgement. So many of us farmers have failed to control our debts and ultimately placed us in a position where we crack under pressure to squeeze more income at the expense of the greater good even though our profit margins may in actuality, be lower!

Ray Duke, 62, has worked for Monsanto for 40 years. He said he gives tours during his retirement because he’s so excited about biotechnology. He walks through the labs and down the corridors like a kid in a candy shop, smiling and talking excitedly for hours about the technology he thinks can save the world. “We have an obligation in our generation to leave the world in better shape than we found it,” and genetically engineered crops can do just that, he said. They can help farmers cut down on pesticides use, he said, while saving them money and time and limiting pollution. Engineering also will allow farmers to grow more food on less land to feed a booming world population, he said.

Ray, ARE YOU SERIOUS? You have been manipulated by Monsanto advertising and job training to believe technology is the solution to our worlds problems! Fixing the problem directly, is the solution. THE PROBLEM is the technology. None of these problems exhisted before technology allowed our species to break the laws of nature and our population has exploded because of it.

Maybe Ray and other Corporate supporters should follow the National Family Farm Coaltion at http://www.nffc.net/. This group of wonderful activists has been risking their land and lives to fight the monopoly in the United States since 1986.

We are trying to reverse this Corporate monopoly by promoting the planting of Organic (non-hybrid) seeds from vendors such as the following group:

I plan on volunteering soon for a SEED Vault organization similar to the Global Diversity Crop Trust and other gene banks.

If you do not own and plant an ORGANIC / ALL NATURAL seed, then you can not seriously be labeled OWNER of your farm. This fact supports the statistic that the majority of farms are now “OWNED” by large companies and the private farmer is a mere pawn held in captivity to perform what can only be considered as slave labor.

The majority of my family ancestry comes from farming roots and over the past 50 years we have dwindled down to only a remaining handful of active growers. On a % scale; in the 1940s 75% of our family was farming for a living. In the 1950s, nearly 60% and the trickle down has continued to currently be roughly only 5% of us who remain active in sustainable living.

The decrease in growth of sustainable food mixed with the suicidal actions of over population make me ashamed of our species. The list of our wrongs is massive but the price of food in stores, the wasteful packaging, lack or “reusing” and zero waste living has passed the point of no return.

I personally am situated to spend a majority of my time in sustainable 3rd world cultures and pray for my loved ones who remain pawns to the plague back in over populated areas like the U.S.A., UK, China etc. Even if our country was to follow China and activate a limit on procreation per woman, it is too late. Your best chance at returning to a stable economy is SUSTAINABLE LIVING!

You can join others like me and learn to live on your own, or continue being dependent on a society destined for genocide. You make the choice.

(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 (http://shivchopra.com/?page_id=2)

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 (http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/), 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: http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com

Watch this excellent video on NaturalNews.TV which explains S.510 in more detail:

Take action now or lose your right to grow your own food
Sign this petition at Citizens for Health:
http://www.citizens.org/?page_id=2312

Do it today! This is really important.

In addition, the Cornucopia Institute recently sent out an urgent call-to-action email containing the following information: http://www.cornucopia.org/2010/11/

How to protest Senate Bill 510

1) Go to Congress.org and type in your zip code in the box in the upper right hand corner.

2) Click on your Senator’s name, and then on the contact tab for their phone number. You can also call the Capitol Switchboard and ask to be directly connected to your Senator’s office: 202-224-3121.

3) Once connected ask to speak to the legislative staff person responsible for agriculture. If they are unavailable leave a voice mail message. Be sure to include your name and phone number.

Give them this message in support of the “Tester Amendment” which would exempt small farms from S.510:

“I am a constituent of Senator___________. I ask that he/she support the Tester Amendment to the food safety bill. The Tester Amendment will exempt the safest, small, owner-operator farms and food facilities and farmers who direct market their products to consumers, stores or restaurants. Food safety legislation should not create inappropriate and costly regulatory barriers to family farms and the growing healthy food movement in the drive to crack down on corporate bad actors. Please support the Tester Amendment and market opportunities for small and mid-sized family farms, and small food processing facilities.”

You may also wish to explain that you oppose the Food Safety Modernization Act in its entirety, and it is a destructive, freedom-crushing law that will destroy the future of food in America.

Remember, America has already lost control over its money supply to the Federal Reserve (nearly a hundred years ago). America has lost its health due to the medical industry and its profit-from-sickness agenda. Now we may lose our right to grow our own food and save our own seeds if Senate Bill 510 passes.

This is a dangerous, tyrannical law that would thrust the American people into an age of darkness and malnutrition. It would criminalize many of the very people growing our food and turn food production into yet another corporate monopoly.

Please take the time right now to contact your U.S. Senator and voice your strong opposition to this bill.

    Whoa there. Over 90% of farm land is owned by family farmers NOT large companies. Granted the family farm must now use large machinery to plant and harvest, but they are still owned by the families who live on them.

    • You should take a look at the new updates I posted on the blog in response to your comment. None of our family farm neighbors own the farm any longer. We all have debts with the bank and are at risk of bankruptcy and foreclosure. We highly doubt more then 5% of private farmers are debt free and farming with organic seed which are 2 requirements to claim you “own” the farm business and/or land as an entity.
