House and Senate Fast-Track Bills to Ban Organic Farming

The information below is from an e-mail I just received. We need to contact our congress representatives and express our opinion on this issue.

House H.R. 875

Senate S 425

The main backer and lobbyist is (guess who?) Monsanto!

The Bills will require organic farms to use specific fertilizers and poisonous sprays. All farms and growers will be instructed and regulated by the newly formed agency to 'make sure there is no danger to the general public and the appending food supply.' The attempt is to 'standardize' the agricultural industry.

At first this may appear as if it is only directed at commercial farms but don't be fooled. This WILL include backyard gardens that grow food for consumption by a single family and not intended for resale. Most prior Bills that started off with such intent are later expanded in their scope and become more restricted in nature.

If this passes then NO more heirloom clean seeds but only Monsanto genetically-altered seeds that are now showing up with unexpected diseases in humans.

The name on this evil food plan is the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009 (Really makes it sound like the feds are trying protect us!)

Criminalize Organic Farming? video (Read the text under the video as well.)

Let me be crystal clear here. This has NOTHING to do with food safety. This is only about TOTAL CONTROL by the federal government in our lives.


  1. ah! Big Brother is coming, eh? Did you hear about the seeds that once planted and grown cannot reproduce more fertile seeds? Yes! Very scary. Full control. It's good to talk about these things. Most would think you are paranoid, because the truth is too scary to admit. Good post.

  2. I refuse to believe we're screwed. I continue to believe our representatives will listen to us. I will continue those beliefs as I saddle up my unicorn and fly off to dance on the rainbow.


  3. A friend emailed this to me and it made me sick. I am so tired of the government interfering with farming. We'll ask for help when we need it -- you know??


    I already wrote them. Twice.

  4. Oh my God THANKyou for letting me know about this! It is outrageous. Will definitely pass it along. Bless you.
