stop S510! Stop poisoning our food!!!

http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/568/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=4613

while the right-left debates about Glenn Beck and mosques, and blah blah blah, we are losing the right to clean organic real food!
CODE RED!!!!
Dear Senator,
KEEP A “HOLD” ON S.510! This bill is NOT a ‘noncontroversial’ bill that the Senate can sneak through as a unanimous consent action!
Your constituents and others all around the US, in our determination to protect the right of every American to clean, healthy, clearly labeled, unadulterated food, have brought strenuous objection to degrading our food supply and implementing the well-presented, but very dangerous Codex HARMonziation which the corrupt and dangerous FDA, USDA and other industry-led agencies are so eager to present to us as faits accompli.
Instead, we look to you to preserve our right to clean food, labeled to indicate pesticides, adulterants, GMOs and other dangerous ingredients and to make sure that S. 510, the mis-named “Food SAFETY Bill” is defeated through either inaction or a successful Nay vote and any similar bill is, likewise, defeated. This is a controversial matter that should not be pushed through the Senate by “unanimous consent.”
Among the dangers facing our food and our freedom is the FDA’s determination to destroy our access to high potency nutrients although guaranteed by the 1994 Dietary Supplements Health and Education Act (DSHEA). Amendments and bills to do so, along with the FDA’s illegal Codex activities constantly threaten this freedom of choice. I look to you as my elected legislator to protect this right along with all other food and health freedom related ones.
I will be monitoring your activities on these issues closely. Thank you in advance for your work in the service of health and freedom. I take these issues very seriously and will vote on the basis of their support by my legislators and other elected officials.
The congressional majority leadership has issued its “short list” of bills it wants to push to passage before the August recess. S.510 is NOT on the list.
PLEASE PLACE OR KEEP A “HOLD” ON THIS BILL! Have your staff call the Senate Cloak Room staff and tell them this bill is, in deed, a controversial matter that should not proceed by unanimous consent.
I repeat: this is not a non-controversial matter that could pass the Senate as a “unanimous consent” item. Therefore, please place a “hold” on this bill so it does not “sneak” through the Senate.
This is a very important matter to me and I will keep track of your actions on this bad bill.
Yours in health and freedom,

  1. This bill actually goes out of its way to specifically protect small farms and organics. Here is a summary from the Senate on how it does this: http://thehill.com/images/stories/blogs/smallfarms.pdf

    for some of you that trust the government and think they would not ever want to poison us… go to your local video Rental store or Netflix instant download and watch
    “Food,inc.”
    Drawing on Eric Schlosser’s Fast Food Nation and Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma, director Robert Kenner’s Oscar-nominated documentary explores the food industry’s detrimental effects on our health and environment. Kenner spotlights the men and women who are working to reform an industry rife with monopolies, questionable interpretations of laws and subsidies, political ties and rising rates of E. coli outbreaks.

    According to this website the bill is only 278 pages long. Read it before you go to bed with a mug of hot coco. Mind you saying that..you have probably all read it.

    ~greetings, I am a new member on your awsome site…
    I am very concerned about the state of our world, country & our own thoughts being corrupted – especially the food we are consuming. What’s the best way to control the population? Food…without food, people will, and have done anything! -talk about mind control…food can have a direct effect on our health & our mind. I recently have been hearing alot about food that is genetically modified & chemicals sprayed in the soil and on the plants we eat-it has to have a direct effect on people and animals ingesting these chemicals, etc. …why is organic produce so much more expensive than mass produced fruit & veggies?
    Well, I really appreciate being informed about this “food safety bill” & will copy and distribute it to as many politicians I can, and post it on my facebook page for others to hopefully take some action and try to take back some of the power we have as thinking humans to decide what food we want to put into our mouths. An INFORMED decision…
    ~thank you roseanne, I’ve always loved your humor, now I love your courage to tell the TRUTH!
