The new Food Tyranny Act -- called the "Food Safety Modernization Act" in the U.S. Senate -- has been passed by the senate today. It would give the FDA vast new powers to criminalize and imprison farmers and food producers while doing absolutely nothing to address to real root of the food contamination problem.

Apparently in this bill it will now be illegal to grow,sell, or trade your own produce. We have now given even more power to the FDA which continues to push very harmful prescriptions out to the public without barely testing side effects... This seems to be a very dangerous bill, i cant grow my own tomatoes??? Although it seems there might have been an amendment which removed this part from the bill... its hard to tell, ive read 2 different sources and neither can confirm all the info, that info im getting from watching "End of Liberty" on youtube

The Tester Amendment of the bill did manage to exclude some smaller farmers from the more tyrannical provisions of the bill. As currently stated, this would exclude small farms that sell less than $500,000 worth of food and which sell most of their food locally. However, Senators failed to consider what's going to happen when the Federal Reserve keeps printing counterfeit money, devaluing the dollar and causing massive food price inflation. A farm that right now produces merely $100,000 worth of food (which could be a small, two-person farm) will soon find itself producing $500,000 worth of food (or more) due to the rapidly falling value of the U.S. dollar. This is how the Federal Reserve's money counterfeiting actions will further destroy America and place small family farms under the tyranny of the FDA.

Supposedly it won't effect home gardeners. Also, supposedly it won't effect small farmers unless they grow enough to commence with interstate trade exceeding $500,000- or something like that.

Our tomatoes are safe...for now.

Your statement "Apparently in this bill it will now be illegal to grow,sell, or trade your own produce" is false.
You can still grow tomatoes.
