(OrganicJar) For a change of pace every now and then, I’m going to publish an article by Stan ‘the stickman’ as sort of a way to lampoon current events happening in our reality. Now, Stan doesn’t have the luxury of a big brain like you and I do, but nonetheless he will still attempt to make sense out of the world we live in. Let’s see what crazy theory he’s pieced together this week by connecting the dots…as he likes to call it.

“Corporate grown vegetables today have 40% fewer nutrients than vegetables 50 years ago”

stick_06“We are a nation built on the strength of individual initiative. But there are certain things that we can’t do on our own. There are certain things that only a government can do. And one of those things is ensuring that the foods we eat, and the medicines we take, are safe and don’t cause us harm.” –Barack Obama

  1. Hey Stan the Stick Man! Now… don’t listen to Jason I’m sure you do have a big brain!

  2. hi,
    i am reading this bill. where exactly does it say we will not be able to grow fruits and vegetables in our own back yards?
    thank you,
    jayme

  3. UPDATE: Due to a large amount of interest in this post, I got some legal clarification. The bill says it applies to “any food establishment” or “any farm.”

    Clarification on “food establishment.” These are described in the Definitions section of the bill. Description (8) expands the bill to cover “a food establishment that processes all other categories of food products not described.” The bill covers almost anything an interpreter wants it to cover.

    Clarification on “any farm.” A farm is legally defined in the U.S. as “any place from which $1,000 or more of agricultural products were produced and sold, or normally could have been sold during the census year.” The use of the word “any” in front of farm eliminates the financial test.

    HR 875 Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009

    (my comments in bold)

    SEC. 401. PROHIBITED ACTS.
    It is prohibited–

    (1) to manufacture, introduce, deliver for introduction, or receive in interstate commerce any food that is adulterated, misbranded, or otherwise unsafe;

    (growing an organic tomato in your backyard is now illegal)

    (2) to adulterate or misbrand any food in interstate commerce;

    (as is transporting your organic food to another state)

    (3) for a food establishment or foreign food establishment to fail to register under section 202, or to operate without a valid registration;

    (you are prohibited from growing a tomato in your backyard without purchasing a license then submitting to the following:)

    (4) to refuse to permit access to a food establishment or food production facility for the inspection and copying of a record as required under sections 205(f) and 206(a);

    (growing a tomato in your backyard without regular government inspections and the purchase and use of mandated chemicals and pesticides from government-approved suppliers)

    (5) to fail to establish or maintain any record or to make any report as required under sections 205(f) and 206(b);

    (failing to document compliance for all food you produce)

    (6) to refuse to permit entry to or inspection of a food establishment as required under section 205;

    (growing a tomato without submitting to search and seizure of your personal property)
    Thanks to fdralloveragain for this info.

  4. What is your country coming to Stan?

  5. i would have to say that organic gardening is a good way to spend your time and also it can keep you healthy.`.-
