We are all Kulaks now

One of the significant events of the totalitarian regime of Stalin, was the purge of the farmer. The freedom they were "allowed" during the previous decades of communist rule in Soviet Russia, were swept away from the Ukrainian steppes. Stalin starved the poor Kulaks out by confiscating grain supplies and destroying their livestock.
"They had gone over the country like a warm of locusts and taken away everything edible; they had shot or exiled thousands of peasants, sometimes whole villages; they had reduced some of the most fertile gland in the world to a melancholy desert."

Malcolm Muggeridge, quoted in "Death by Gun Control", Aaron Zelman and Richard Stevens
All this was performed under the guise of "Centralized Planning."

Bawb has alerted us to the threat of S. 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, (introduced by the slime POS Dick Durbin of Illinois) its full text is here.

Bawb's "Dirty Dozen" summary of the bill gives us such gems as:
#1 All food production facilities in the United States will be required to register with the U.S. government. No food will be allowed to be grown, distributed or sold outside this bureaucratic framework unless the FDA allows it.

#2 Any food that is distributed or sold outside of U.S. government control will be considered illegal smuggling.
Please read more.

Can someone explain to me how this bill is any different than this?
The government, the planners, the leaders who directed the robbery, even the government employees themselves "knew better than the peasants how they should live, and what they should sow and when they should plough."

Page 168, "Death by Gun Control", Zelman and Stevens
Because of the criminal interpretation of Interstate Commerce, this gives a virtual unlimited vista of new laws and regulations to our bureaucratic overlords.

As most of my half-dozen readers are aware, we are at a pivotal time in our nation's history. 250 years ago our ancestors would have been heating up the tar and gathering feathers.

While we still have the ballot box:

Every last one of them.

I believe that the recent food scares have been manufactured to stampede the public into supporting this monstrosity. I also believe that they are preparing for an eventual holodomor.

But then maybe my tinfoil hat is on too tight.

Looks like IL senator Durbin and our sen Harkin are deeply involved in this pile of shite.

A couple of assholes and what will they do next? Eh, Sam?

I wouldn't go so far as to say anyone manufactured these recent salmonella scares, but politicians are definitely opportunistic bastards.
