HR 875 and the Criminalization of the Backyard Gardener

HR 875 was introduced to our 111th congress by Rosa DeLauro, whose husband Stanley Greenburg works for Monsanto. The bill benefits factory farming corporations such as factory farming ops like Monsanto, ADM, Sodexo and Tyson, by stressing small farms with new regulations and potentially putting small food suppliers out of business. My guess is that the bill was written by people from inside that industry.

Monsanto is up to no good. Monsanto has been engineering corn and other crops to be infertile, such that farmers cannot plant next season from this year's seed crop!! And not only does this invention assure that the farmer must purchase seed annually, the genetically engineered corn pollenates other corn and reduces the viability of the crop world wide. Causing starvation and an increased need for people to buy seed corn. Now a Monsanto ally has introduced a bill making it a pain in the ass to grow a little bit of food on your small farm or in your back yard garden. This bill increases the regulation of small food growing operations, while letting the corporate starvation profiteer run free. We can't let this bill pass. Is there anyone out there paying attention? Are you ready to act as a citizen? We the people are up against Goliath, and we'd better pick up some stones!! Please do what you can.
