The Government in Your Garden...

I'd venture to guess that only a small fraction of US citizens have ever read a bill before it became law.  And who can blame them.  The bills are often ridiculously long and steeped in mind numbing and confusing legalese.  We're far too busy making bricks for Pharoah and attending circuses to try to wrap our head around such an intentionally convoluted mess.

A bill might have a fluffy...cute name like..."SB 2345 The happy fun make your life great act".  When in reality...hidden deep in the wording designed to have Americans give up their right of habeas corpus and be tried by military tribunals...or some other such nonsense. asks....isn't this sort of thing what our elected representatives are supposed to protect us from?!!

Sure we believe in a representative government...but it's quite obvious that many or most of those that supposedly represent the citizens...really represent whatever will put cash in their pockets...grow the welfare state...get them reelected...etc.  Many of these representatives...good intentioned but misinformed...grossly negligent...or conspiring and evil...push these bills through and ultimately they may become the unconstitutional "law" of the land.

What is also sickening is that many of these representatives never have a chance to...or don't bother to read the bills they are voting on !!

As a result...our freedoms dim with each successive year...month...and day as a collective Gulliver have the strings of tyranny placed over us.  Many of the politicians will continue to lull us with hollow promises...and encourage us to go back to sleep...while others are becoming brazenly open about their corruption as they believe that the people are too docile to ever do anything to really challenge them.

Here is a bill...that I am hearing about from time to time....that has the appearance of being ridiculously intrusive and corrupt.

It is called SB510  "The food safety modernization act".

Well...don't you want for your food to be "safe" and don't you want to be "Modern"?!!  What kind of crazy would be against safety and want to be a backwards outdated hillbilly in opposition to modernization!!?

Opponents of this bill say that it will (among other things) make it...

Illegal To Grow, Share,
Trade, Sell Homegrown Food

SB S510 Will Allow Government  To Put You In Jail ....

The government telling you how you can grow...what you can grow...etc!!!!

There are also people saying that there are ties to Monsanto...which is the devil.

To many...the notion that the government would ever come into your backyard and try to control what you grow may sound like some far fetched Orwellian plot.  That is...until someone shows up at your home with a clip board "just doing their job" to make sure that you are abiding the "law"...or you are found guilty of growing non-approved broccoli...and of course must therefore face the consequences!

So I'd recommend contacting your representatives...letting others know about it...and basically doing whatever becometh a concerned citizen.


  1. Perhaps this is the reason we are to store a "years supply"? So we can outlive the fools that place such idiocy into law - then continue our gardens.

    Just a thought...I'm probably wrong.

  2.'s not out of the realm of possibility...

  3. They( government) have stopped listening to us and althought two wrongs don't make a right, I'm joining them and no longer will I ( listen/ follow)abide in their ridiculous laws! They can't arrest and imprison all of us! Pure and simple it's all about control, if you control the food, you control the people. I'm following the Lord and what He lays on my heart and that has been and seems to be to be sufficiency and raising our own food, sharing the bounties of the harvest.

  4. Might be a real mistake to try and reach all the way into the personal gardens of many common folks! Never know what you may pull back when you stick your fingers and your nose in places they don't belong!

  5. Sorry for the slow response.

    I hear ya Kelle. I think more and more share your sentiments. There is even talk floating around about another declaration of independence!

    HermitJim. True...true...true. Man...right now I've got issues with the gas meter guy coming unannounced! Just try to pry your way onto my property to inspect my brassicas!!
