What kind of farm will be able to grow government safe food?
Industrial production of peanuts, cantaloupes, hamburger and spinach reigned havoc on the nation’s food chain, sickening many and killing some.
In keeping with their stated policy of “never letting a serious crisis go to waste,” politicians flew into action, and in the waning hours of 2010, passed the Food Safety Modernization Act, which granted to government total and absolute control over the nations’s food chain.
Former Monsanto Executive Michael Taylor, now government’s Food Safety Czar, recently handed down 1,200 pages of new food safety rules. These rules are scheduled to go into effect in a few weeks.
Few have read all the 1,200 pages, and most seem resigned to follow a former Speaker of the House, who would likely say, “Let’s enforce all the rules so we can know what they are!”
Some, however, would like to have time to read all the new rules before accepting them. Their asking for time to read all the rules leads us to ask…
For whom is government making food safe?
