Looks like the govt is pushing through some seriously flawed legislation. There's a bill in committee right now that I'm sure will get a vote because it's a response to the recent "peanut deaths". The language is so general and the reach so broad that organic and other safe and small farmers will be forced into chemicals and vaccines and other stuff, rendering organic and natural farms obsolete. These smaller farms cannot afford the additional equipment, supplies, lawyers, "experts" (govt-approved ones, of course), and workers needed to comply with such outrageous requirements.

If you care about the food you eat, I urge you to contact your reps now while it's still in committee. If it gets put up for a vote, it just plainly will be too late to stop it.

Read more, and links to the bill at my blog http://www.craftychefgraphicsblog.com/2009/03/new-cpsia-gubmint-is-taking-over-food.html. Sorry, it's too much to put all the links in here, I've been passing this word around several places.

This world is so scary....

Have you noticed the chemtrails in the sky yet?  That's really scary because even if farms are practicing organic and natural methods, the government is spraying the sky with who knows what everyday.  They'll get us one way or another.  It makes me so sick...
