Just got this action alert to stop NAIS funding:

Immediate Action Required!

Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) has introduced an amendment to block funding for the National Animal Identification System (NAIS). His amendment will probably be voted on late Wednesday afternoon or evening as part of the House Agriculture Appropriations bill (HR 5384).

This is a great opportunity to stop NAIS. If the funding is cut off, then the USDA cannot continue to give grants to state agencies and private companies to promote and implement the program!

Please call your Congressman today! We do not have much time to rally support for Rep. Paul's amendment, so it is critical that everyone take action without delay.

The Capitol Switchboard number (202) 225-3121. If you don't know who to call, go to http://en.groundspring.org/EmailNow/...61861&u=709458 and enter your zip code in the box on the left-hand side of the screen. Your Congreesional Rerpresentative's contact information will be provided.

Ask her/him to vote for Ron Paul's Amendment to HR 5384 to block funding for NAIS because (choose a couple of reasons you think most appropriate, or use your own):

1. NAIS will be too costly and burdensome for farmers and ranchers.

2. NAIS invades the privacy of every American who owns even one livestock animal, whether a horse, pet pot-bellied pig, chicken, cow, goat, sheep, etc.

3. NAIS will not protect us against disease or bioterrorism because
(a) it does not address the causes of disease;
(b) it does not address how diseases are transmitted;
(c) we already have sufficient means of tracking diseases and controlling outbreaks; and
(d) the recommended technology (ISO radiotags) can be easily reprogrammed, so that it is ineffective against intentional introductions of disease.

4. NAIS will greatly expand the government bureaucracy, at the cost of individuals' rights and the free market.

5. NAIS will raise the cost of food, while not providing any additional food safety.

6. NAIS has been developed by the USDA without Congressional hearings or debate, and without any real involvement of the tens of thousands of individuals who will be affected.

If you have questions about this action alert, please contact Judith McGeary at [email protected]

Please call now. And forward this alert to all of your contacts, so that we can create the support we need for Congressman Paul's amendment!

I totally believe this. My kids were "voluntarily" enrolled in Indiana's vaccine registry simply because I took them to a doctor who was a member of the program (and they didn't tell us this, of course).

Isn't the government so 'helpful'?

I just got my first issue of Countryside in the mail today and there was a letter from one of the government agencies encouraging Countryside readers to not only keep an open mind about NAIS but to embrace it.

I would have laughed, except that I couldn't. I knew this person was serious.

This steams me so badly. I currently have 20-something silkie bantams, but I hatch for other people, hatch for myself, etc. I have 26 runner duck eggs in the incubator and more silkie eggs coming, I give some away, sell some, etc...this is RIDICULOUS.

I seriously think the Bird Flu hype is a huge scare tactic to get the government in to ours lives even more. Makes me SO mad!!!
