Are The FDA and USDA finding ways/excuses to make people not have their own backyard gardens to grow food?

Our government is clearly protecting Big Businesses like Monsanto, etc.

13 states already have veggie libel laws.

Agriculture subsidies.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture showed that higher soda taxes would drive down obesity, but despite such a levy raising much-needed public revenues, Colorado’s newly Republican House is pushing legislation to create a special budget-busting sales tax exemption exclusively for soda.

Georgia Legislature’s are intensifying the inequity with a bill to create a regressive sales tax on food that would then finance a brand new corporate tax cut.

Missouri state Sen. Jane Cunningham’s proposal to eliminate child labor laws would allow corporations to employ any kid under 14 and would terminate restrictions on the number of hours that kid can be forced to work.

When?

Update:

Einsteins!

Lobbyists, patronages, special interest groups, etc.

    FDA is a thug group which spends most of their time trying to bust natural medicine, while approving all sorts of chemicals that will only make you sicker. The FDA also approves of illegals picking the vegetation and not washing their hands in the fields while picking HELLO ECOLI. And the USDA has thought pumping up beef with hormones was the way to go, and has thus screwed up our genetic codes and disrupted the natural balance. Its time to shut down the FDA and tell them where to go, and the USDA also needs to be disbanded, if they were so wonderful our beef would not have been banned from Japan.

    A Senate Bill granting the Government the power to ban growing your own "unsafe and unregulated" food has already passed.

    They are doing it to keep your food supply as safe as the medicines you get through the FDA regulatory system. You can't be trusted to provide for your family.

    It is unlikely it will be strictly enforced except if you attempt to sell some of your produce to a neighbor, or trade it for what they produce.

    i don't understand approximately your state by capacity of in my state their is the ninety 9 cent shop that sells packets of seeds for 17 cents a kit, in the event that they have not bought out.

With bulbs you recognize you have a great onion. With tomato flowers time would be cut back in a million/2 or much less and additionally while he harvests them he can get his very own seeds for the subsequent planting time. He will additionally staring on the size you get and sophistication, will nevertheless have time to have a million-3 seasons left in the 300 and sixty 5 days to reap. in case you besides the undeniable fact that what to stick to something that he can advance rapid and is waiting in a million-2 months, then purchase him: a million) turnips (a million-2 months) 2) radishes (1month) 3) summer season spinach (a million-2 months) 4) zucinni, yellow squash, criminal neck squash and so on...

    Big government wants regulations to control your life, and tax revenues to . . . control your life.

    I would favor a tax and restrictions on people growing their own backyard foods. Backyard food money is as good as soda money, your know? It's all "much-needed public revenues".

    Let's help everybody, including you, see that big government is stealing your money to fund departments that restrict your freedom.

    The sources you cite are all republicans.

    And at the state level.

    Yes, this concerns me a lot.

    No, they are not.

    And I fail to see how a soda law has anything to do with your backyard garden.
