Skip to comments.FDA begins implementing sweeping food-safety law
Posted on 01/04/2013 7:45:19 PM PST by Vince Ferrer
The Obama administration moved ahead Friday with the first major overhaul of the nations food-safety system in more than 70 years, proposing tough new standards for fruit and vegetable producers and food manufacturers.
The long-awaited proposals by the Food and Drug Administration are part of a fundamental change aimed at preventing food-borne outbreaks caused by everything from leafy greens to canteloupes to peanut butter rather than simply reacting to them. Every year, contaminated foods sicken an estimated 48 million Americans and kill 3,000.

” - - - everyone in business has to conform to his priorities - - - “
That is why B. Hussein Obama is a Communist Dictator.
On 7 August 1932 a law came into force that stipulated that all food was state property and that mere possession of food was evidence of a crime.
You want to control people? Control their food.
I would label him as a fascist over communist. Communists like to own businesses, but fascists just like to tell others what to do with their businesses, or else.
All part of the plan to starve the peasants so the ruling-class can live in the Walden paradise they deserve.
I'll kill my food.
F U B O!
as with all statist edicts, this will further raise prices while actually decreasing food safety.
” - - - but fascists just like to tell others what to do with their businesses, or else.”
So a gangsta would be a fascist?
“That is why B. Hussein Obama is a Communist Dictator.”
I think fascist is a better term. A communist wants the state to own everything (thus The People really own it), while a fascist allows private ownership of business but has a big say in how that business is run, from wages to products to, well, just about everything is regulated by some central fascist authority.
The only difference is that a fascist has the force of law behind him.
Did Michael Taylor NOT come from MONSANTO ?
Yes indeed he did!
AND what does Monsanto produce? Why it just may be genetically modified food! Or as those of us who pay attention, it’s called GMO seed for Genetically Modified Organism.
Yum! Tasty , built in insecticides like, Bt. (Bacillus Thuringenesis)
95 % of the soy in this country is GMO... who knew? So is the corn....Who knew?
THIS is Agenda 21 and Michael Taylor is getting his payoff for being the face of true evil.
What do you suppose happens to your gut after you eat this?
Organized crime is like government, or government is organized crime. I can never tell which. The protection rackets are the most obvious parallel. Even when gangsters meet market demand, as with women, licker, feel good pills, loose cigarettes, soon sody pop in NYC, or games of chance, they do so by violently enforcing their monopoly, exactly like government.
It’s not like people all over the country dropping dead from “unsafe” food.......
But what is the force of law but implied and actual violence that’s generally accepted as legitimate? I’m sure from time to time, here and there, gangsters have cut out their own little polities accepted by locals as every bit as legitimate as the state.

5. control the environment
6. control waterways
7. control schools
8. control unions
9. control the internet

WHAT DID I MISS..?
John Stossel will have plenty of fodder for his program these next four years. We’re going to be regulated to death if not by other means.
And think of who this will hit. He is already hitting hard the low cost restaurant industry with ObamaCare, now he is increasing the price of food. This may not affect the large franchises as much, because most of them enforce higher standards than the old rules anyway, but for many it will raise the price of food as well.
He is also just hitting customers everywhere with a tax increase, so they will be in the mood to save money.
High end restaurants will survive, because the rich can pay no matter what the price, and every man needs a place to impress a girl. But on the low end, it is very price sensitive, and people can always bring a lunch pail to work. For the small restaurants and grocers, they are getting hit from every angle.
I would have rather the enemy had come in uniform.
And I think you're there.
