Now you need a law to sell home made goods? It looks like few remember that nothing of the sort was needed before. There was always the lemon aid stands by kids, bake sales at the church not to mention charity events selling many types of home made foods. County Fairs had loads of home made foods for sale and no law, license or permit was required.

Where I'm at we have no such insanity, my wife runs a BBQ out front several days a week. We go around the neighborhood and take orders for meat when we butcher a pig along with other home made food items for sale, no permit required. Have you ever wondered how free your NOT. You need a passport or travel ID to take a domestic flight or board a ship staying within the US, we don't. You can't even grow a garden without getting arrested, we can and the list goes on.

The OP states that he HOPES this passes and many others comment saying, this is great news. Get a grip people, you don't need a permit or license and never did. They have passed illegal laws directly against your Constitutional Rights and now your happy they are passing a law allowing you to sell a pie.

They just want us to say, "Oh thank you government for passing this law, allowing me to cook my own damned food and make a little money off of it."

We should've always been allowed to do this. It's so funny to me, even though this is positive.

Have you watched the movie Food Inc. yet? I hope you do, it talks about a strain of e-coli which is deadly, which we have only because of mass feeding of corn products to cows. Cows were not "made" to eat corn, they were "made" to eat grass.

We are creating our own problems in many ways when we have so many laws which support large corporations instead of laws which support each individual persons right to choose their own food.

If I want to drink unpasteurized milk, that ought to be MY choice and not some corporate conglomerate controlling my choices. Right now I do not have that choice unless I own my own cow. I don't have the space for that or I probably would. I am on a waiting list though for a cow share program, but I could be on this waiting list for years before a space opens up. It can be frustrating on this end of things. Also the milk even in the cow share program is pasteurized because of the laws. I feel though at least I would be supporting my local farmers, and getting my milk from cows fed organically and free ranged without growth hormones.

Having grown up on a farm drinking unpasteurized milk from a grass fed free range cow every morning, not once did any of us ever get ill from it and most mornings it was still warm from the cow. Can't get any fresher and healthier than that if you are going to drink milk from a cow.

@getreadyalready, I agree with you about the killing of the good bacteria etc. and the use of anti-bacterial soaps etc. My daughter used to have asthma, USED to have it very bad. Her asthma specialist asked me what I used to clean with and when I told her she said no no no. She then guided me to stop using anti-bacterial soaps etc. to use white vinegar and baking soda and lemon juice for cleaning and for air fresheners. It has been years since I started doing this and my daughter no longer has asthma, AND my son's allergies have gotten MUCH better.

She explained that using anti-bacterial soaps keeps our children from building up immunities, making their immune system have a much harder time fighting off illnesses.

We don't "need" all these crazy full of chemical cleaners that many buy from the large corporations. White vinegar kills off bacteria etc just as well without the harmful side effects, while still leaving our children able to build up their immune system and leaving them healthier and visiting the dr's office less often.

I don't know the answers personally, but I do know that having large corporations controlling our food IS causing problems.

Get out of my fridge, get out of my bedroom and get out of my womb. None of them belong to you or a corporation or the government. ;-)

(and by "you" I mean those who want to control my choices)

Come on, I thought this was a "free" country, and by free I don't mean free range for corporations and pens, corn, antibiotics and growth hormones for the rest of us.

Harm None
