SAVE ORGANIC FARMS and stop the Food Safety Modernization Act (H.R. 875) - Page 2

Support Local Organic in San Francisco

I've recently subscribed to a local organic delivery service in San Francisco. I want to encourage you to do the same as its the most effective way for us non-farmers to contribute to organic farming. The site is www.AlbertEve.com and they home deliver organic fruit and veggy boxes to your home every week. The stuff is generally very fresh and the prices are totally affordable.

I have a really hard time believing what I read in hysterical, conspiracy-theory oriented sites. And no, monopolization of the food supply is not a conspiracy because it's not a secret that every company wants a large a share as possible of its market. Any hard-headed, cool-thinking sites on this that are against it? Any? I agree that Monsanto sponsorship is a reason to petition it but it irritates me that the articles posted here are so, well... over-the-top.

I know what your saying about getting to hot-but have you considered the recent CPSIA law that sounded good. . .aka keep lead out of toys and products for children. Passed easily and quickly across party lines, but when you really look deeper into the bill what happens? Small business owners that are already producing safe products and work at home moms/pops are effected.
I feel strongly that this bill is much the same, sounds good who is against safer food? Who does not want food contamination to end? Who would be against having better tracking of food?
Prob is the WAY the bill is written! Therefore it needs to not pass and a knew bill should be introduced that does not have the same potential for disaster. And really ll you need to do to know this is true is read the bill

"stop the Food Safety Modernization" - I have not read this "food safety modernization act". Is it really that evil? Normally, I totally support everything that is targeted to reduce food safety risks. For example, did you know that wooden pallets are dangerous and food should not be transported on them? I read it over here: http://www.pallettruth.com/food-safety-risks/ What I am saying is that if this act is trying to protect us and our children, then I see nothing wrong about it. But if it is a sheep in a wolf's skin, they yes, we should vote no on it!
