"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

A Step Closer To Food Wars?

Urgent call to action on Senate Bill 510 Food Safety Modernization Act - video

The US Senate will vote on the bill this evening. Further info can be found HERE.

Britain doesn't need laws like this - we already have fines from council jobsworths and health & safety rules to keep us in our place.   What have we become?

Three days ago in the EP Dan Hannan spoke against the EU's regulation of herbal medicine and vitamin supplements. It may seem unconnected but it isn't. It has everything to do with who controls what we choose to put into our own bodies:

  1. Depressing to see their global plans being implemented.

  2. History should tell them that there's only one way for it to end, TT, but perhaps they don't read the right sort of books. What do they expect - everything's been done by stealthy small steps that are nearly ready to be joined up. You can't repress people, take away their nationhood and identity and expect them to lie down and take it.

    Totally depressing.

  3. Dan spot on once again, like him I'm skeptical about these supplememnts but don't see why others should not use thm if they want to. It's big pharma putting the independents out of business by agreeing on a regulatory mechanism that they can't afford just like Big Meat did to small independent abbatoirs and Big Brewers tried, but FAILED, to do to small breweries.

  4. Putting independents out of business and and telling people what they can/can't eat/drink is what they do best, Banned. Over here we already have home grown or allotment food and home-baked cakes being refused by hospices, old folks' homes, schools etc because of H&S.
