You Don't Have a Right To Choose What You Want to Eat

The Federal leviathan in court in Iowa has argued we citizens '... do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish'

"There is no 'deeply rooted' historical tradition of unfettered access to foods of all kinds," states the document signed by U.S. Attorney Stephanie Rose, assistant Martha Fagg and Roger Gural, trial attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice.

If you ever had any doubt that we are heading into a period of tyranny that will rank right there with the Soviet Union, Mussolini's Italy or other such "paradises", this should just about destroy that doubt.

This is related to a frightening piece of legislation that has been languishing since last year, another Food Safety Act.  Since large factory farms have had some contamination issues, you'd think the Feds would target the foreign food imports, the large factory spinach farm located next to the pig farm (remember the e. coli in spinach?) , or someplace like that right?  Silly person!  The is going to clamp down on mom and pop farms, organic farms, and folks who sell the fruit off their trees on roadside stands.   Just like the toy safety act I talked about two months ago, the big companies can afford the lab tests and all the other process (well, they pass on the costs to you); the small farm can't possibly.  The way the law was worded in 2009 made having a lemonade stand, or selling things you grow in your own garden, illegal without absurd fees. 

If there's any food you like that is high in salt, fat or other things they plan to regulate, you should stock up now.
