Agent Orange Is Coming Soon to a Grocery Store Near You...

...At least, that's what Dow AgroScience wants.  If Dow's petition is granted by the federal government, the already dangerous patchwork of GMO corn being grown in America will become the recipient of a weapon of mass destruction.  I doubt anyone needs to be reminded of the pain and suffering caused by Dow's Agent Orange during the Vietnam War.  So do we really want it to be sprayed all over the American food supply?  Not that GMO corn is food, but we all know how these evils spread....

You Can Fight for Food Sovereignty

I am compelled to share this excellent food politics post and urge you to take action:

Maine Challenges Food Sovereignty

In summary, a small-town farmer in Maine, who happens to reside in a town where the local government has declared "Food Sovereignty," is being sued by the state for producing and selling Real Food.  The Food Sovereignty movement in Maine began in Sedgwick and grew to a handful of other small towns.

The town unanimously passed an ordinance giving its citizens the right “to produce, process, sell, purchase, and consume local foods of their choosing.” This includes raw milk, locally slaughtered meats, and just about anything else you can imagine. It’s also a decided bucking of state and federal laws. -- Food Renegade

The concept of declaring Food Sovereignty is brilliant and long overdue...if Blue Hill, ME falls to big gov't (whose witch hunt is of course prompted by big ag interests), where is the hope for the rest of us?  We should all get involved to promote similar ordinances in our towns.  

Please act on the plight of farmer Dan Brown and write to the Maine politicians involved (see info at the end of the abovementioned post.)

You do NOT have the right to eat what you choose?!

Yes, our world just keeps getting crazier and more infuriating.  The plots of decades-old dystopian, dictatorial, Big Brother books seem to be playing out before our eyes.  Are we awake and watching?

The government has said, more than once through different vehicles, that we, the people, do NOT have a fundamental right to eat the foods of our choice...to produce and eat our own food!  Lunacy...

This is not going away, my friends, and we need to fight this tide.

Just read for yourself and continue to research and warn others:
