And the critical paragraph in this page, without lobbying is:

"(NaturalNews) At 10:30 today, the U.S. Senate picks up its debate on the
issue of S.510, the "Food Safety and
Modernization Act" which is really a wolf in sheep's clothing. It would
grant the FDA new, tyrannical powers that could
be used to criminalize backyard gardening, outlaw saving seeds, imprison
people who sell raw milk and oppress food
freedom throughout the country."

Yet more on S510 from Food Democracy Now:

Food Democracy Now | Mayhem on the Hill, Big Ag Declares War on Food Safety
http://action.fooddemocracynow.org
[I am leaving off the link to this article to comply with the rules of Sanet
but the following paragraph in the article
is worth reading for an update on progress of the bill:]

"Yesterday family farmers won an historic victory when a compromise was
reached on the Tester Amendment that offered
protections for family-scale farm operations. Now Big Ag is throwing a
tantrum and is desperately trying to kill the
landmark Food Safety Modernization Act. Even worse, Senator Coburn (R-OK) is
playing chicken with the American people's
health by demanding a ridiculous amendment to ban earmark spending through
2013. America can no longer endure inaction
on this important piece of legislation! Each year more than 5,000 people die
and 76 million are sickened from foodborne
outbreaks."

<><>

And obviously 99.9999% of which: "Each year more than 5,000 people die and
76 million are sickened from foodborne
outbreaks." is caused by large corporate farms, not small farmers, backyard
gardeners, farmers market vendors
and individuals involved in direct sales of farm products.

And:

> > I neither condemn nor agree with any comments by anyone, anywhere, at
anytime. Hopefully that is PC enough.
>
> Me too on that.

That again for me.
