scubamage writes: Congresswoman Rosa Delauro (D-CT) has introduced legislation which could potentially destroy both small and organic farming as we know it. The bill, HR 875, forces pesticides, herbicides, and any new chemicals developed to be used by all farmers in the name of "food safety and sanitation." It would also seek to outlaw seed banking, enforce mandatory GPS tracking of all livestock, and to create a new governing body to oversee food safety without any oversight. This includes warrantless searches of all food production facilities. Further, it would require such intense record keeping that it could quite literally strangle many small farmers out of business. It is also interesting to note that Ms. Delauro is married to Stanley Greenberg — a political strategist whose clients include none other than Monsanto: the world's largest producer of herbicides, pesticides, and genetically modified food products.
I've never been canoeing before, but I imagine there must be just a few
simple heuristics you have to remember...
Yes, don't fall out, and don't hit rocks.
