If Americans ever received a clearer indicator that they no longer live in the land of the free, it's the kind of legislation the U.S. Senate is contemplating right now, Senate Bill S410 Food Safety Moderation Act. It seems ironic that it is Canadian "watch dogs" that have alerted Americans to this threat. Check out the article.
I've read a lot of survivalist blogs and texts floating around on the internet, and there was one fellow/group who predicted this very thing, and worse, so it was a bit surreal to see this kind of thing going on in the U.S. Imagine making seed-saving illegal. Let's take another step, and imagine making it illegal to use compost that you made yourself, illegal to grow non-hybrid crops, illegal to use home-made alternatives to commercial products. Sounds like a movie I recently watched called Downstream is not entirely crazy.
I hope this kind of insane BigCorp mentality isn't contagious.
