The fight is on many fronts, a female senator from California now wants all added food ingredients tested for pathogens in her "processed food safety act S2819" which, if passed, will put all small food companies out of business, Wyoming made beef jerky - gone, Baer's Jam- gone, Chugwater Chili - gone. Still fighting HR 2749, which wants a $500/year fee to register with the Feds just to do vegetables, now S 510 same thing no fees, but doesn't protect the farmers' market growers. I've been telling people about this since August when the house passed HR 2749, but no one listened. The WY dept of Ag., is now talking to various groups in the state about these bills and what to expect, people are now starting to get concerned, they should be scared about their lively hood if they have anything to do with food. I'm convinced more then ever that the Democrats are trying to crush the local food movement. Between the Cap and Trade, Socialized Med, Food Safety, we will be cold and hungry within two years of all this passing. Where does all this stop and common sense return, is the next revolution 2010.
Sorry for the rant, I need to go out in the global warming blizzard and feed my sheep. C

From my friend Mike:
Soon we will be hearing the environmentalist screaming about the new ice age! Forget not that these are the same people who oscillate between warming and cooling about every 20 years or so. There is speculation that the so called "Dark Ages" was in part caused by a cooling of world temperatures resulting in fewer crops and thus hunger, disease, and generally poorer living conditions. This was followed by a warm up that may have been the reason for the "Renaissance." Our world revolves around the food supply, always has always will.
