It's All About Control

"Sometimes I don’t know if I’m living in the United States or the old Soviet Union. 

"A new bill has been introduced in the Senate—S.3767. This bill makes it a crime, punishable by up to 10 years in prison, to “introduce misbranded food into interstate commerce.” The bill also appears to provide the same punishment for introducing “adulterated” food into interstate commerce.

"These terms are so vague and so broad that they could cover almost anything. Government agencies already consider raw milk to be “adulterated.” Any supplement or food could be labeled as “misbranded.”

"'Interstate Commerce' could cover anything and everything that is sold or even consumed in the United States of America."
Follow the link to let your Senator know what you think about this.  They'll vote for it anyway.
