More Obamite Congressional hypocrisy and moves towards increased government power and criminalization of healthy ordinary human behavior and activity. Prepare to kiss your organic grocery produce good-bye. "Let them eat GMOs."
Senate Bill S 510 Food Safety Modernization Act vote imminent: Would outlaw gardening and saving seeds
This tyrannical law puts all food production (yes, even food produced in your own garden) under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security. Yep — the very same people running the TSA and its naked body scanner / passenger groping programs.

Down on your knees, peasants! The King’s Hat is passing by!
