... I have written here many times about NAIS and now the Obama government, having promised people would have 60 days to comment, having promised transparency, having promised it was in support of small farmers, is pushing through as rapidly as humanly possible, bills that will mean the end of organic farming.

How? By Monsanto entering into the body of organic farming like a disease and morphing organic farms into industrial facilities, the farmer being forced to "treat" the land with chemicals and the animals with drugs, trapped into paying for what is unwanted, unsafe, unneeded, unconstitutional.

This is monopoly at the most extreme degree - not just unfair competition but total control of every aspect of the competition to the degree of making them laborers for the monopoly.

Here is the senate version.

The bill has been referred to the following committees:

Senate Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry. Sent to committee on February 9, 2009 we are not allowed to know what happens in committee. For some reason these things are secret and we can't most times even know how anyone voted. As this site points out, if you do not have a rep or senator on the committeesâ??â??.they don't' want to hear from you.

In the House: http://www.govtrack .us/congress/ bill.xpd? bill=h111- 875

A bill in the US Congress: To establish the Food Safety Administration within the Department of Health and Human Services to protect the public health.

Referred to committee on February 4, 2009

House Energy and Commerce

House Agriculture

The bills in both the House and Senate are virtually identical. This means this whole deal was decided at the same time Smart Grid was inserted into the Stimulus Package. The house and Senate bills will lay the groundwork for NAIS and other programs, and Smart Grid will make them operable. ...

This is all part of the Smart Grid System of controlling everything in our lives and us â?“ to me it is the Patriot Act gone ballistic, digitizing every aspect of our lives and leaving no area of privacy or true freedom whatsoever. Do people even remember anymore how different life used to be, how it belonged to us and only us?

Last paragraph.

One of the largest components of Smart Grid is already being implemented by the USDA; it's called the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) it requires farmers to implant a RFID tag into the body of all of their livestockâ?“cows, pigs, goats, chickens, sheep, all livestock. The NAIS threatens to destroy small-scale family farms. If you're not familiar with the NAIS, here are a couple of resources: Downsize DC, NAIS: Too little too late? and NAIS: Let's do some fuzzy math. Coupled with Smart Grid, the NAIS strengthens the ability of Government officials to control rural Americans as completely as they control people in the cities. ...
