Help Stop The Dangerously Phony Food Safety Bill

The word we are getting is that our "good for nothing but photo-ops and grandstanding" Congress may try to sneak through HR 2749 real fast, the latest phony food safety bill on a suspension of rules any day. Yes, we do need to take action to protect our food safety. But, no, this bill does absolutely nothing to identify or address the real problems. And by NOT addressing the real problems it can only do more harm than good.

But we now launching an incredibly powerful new advocacy tool, especially for the fight against HR 2749, and to stop all such future lunacy in its tracks, the People's Phone Lobby interface. It's so simple to use, just go to the page below and call your members of Congress and there is even a link to give you all their direct congressional and local district office phone numbers.

HR 2749 People's Phone Lobby:

Then when you speak to the staffers in your congressional offices, you don't JUST tell them your position, first you ASK them for their position. Are they supporting HR 2749 or not? And THEN you give them your position and MAKE them defend theirs if they do not agree with us, that HR 2749 is just more very bad news, another deceptively titled bill that in fact does the opposite of what it purports to be about, assuming it is anything besides totally worthless.

Why is this such a powerful new approach?? Because when you go to the link above and record your notes of your phone calls with your members of Congress, it becomes a permanent public record of just how many of us are calling, and just how many of them are trying to completely ignore the voice of the people, that any of their constituents can go out and read for themselves.

To protect your privacy, the record you make of your conversations with them will only display your initials and your city and state on this new blogging site. But then ANYONE can see for themselves the real numbers as to how many of us are demanding real change, and which members of Congress think our calls can just go in one ear and out the other. Go to the page below and put it to work for you and your family now.

HR 2749 People's Phone Lobby:

In fact, this is basically just what the corporate lobbyists do behind our backs day in and day out and all night too. They jam members of Congress about their positions on bills. And if they aren't falling in line they apply pressure. But now with this revolutionary logging tool, we can jam them right back. Why, we can see them huddled in small groups in their cloakrooms even now, talking about, "OMG, the people are on to us!!"

The fact is that a REAL food safety bill would be easy to write. Provision one, force the filthy factory farms, which are breeding all the antibiotic resistant bacteria and mutating viruses now, to clean up their act. And JUST the big factory farms, not the small, healthy organic farms that are the backbone of our real food safety.

Provision two, ban all ban GMOs until AFFIRMATIVELY proven safe and require full disclosure labeling of all such products, cows shot up with bovine growth hormone, etc. Of course, GMOs can never be proven safe because they AREN'T. Rats fed GMO soybeans get sick and die! That's right, they wouldn't feed this stuff to rats, but they want to give it to our children.

So Congress having gotten the directive from the corporate special interests that put profit ahead of our real food safety, a directive to IGNORE the real problems and look somewhere else, along comes HR
2749, which lacks even a preamble to identify why the bill even needed to be written in the first place, or what exactly it is intended to correct.

Instead, ALL HR 2749 does is grant the FDA expansive and unprecedented new POLICE powers to the FDA with no guidance of congresional intent as to how that power should be exercised. And who will be the administrators wielding this awesome new and truly frightening power, you ask? Why, President Obama just appointed a former Monsanto VP to oversee the FDA food safety group. There's a example for you. What a coinky-dink!!

Remember when Obama told us not to worry (because HE was the "decider") about all the drop dead creeps he was appointing to government administrative positions, the worst of the worst, the SAME people who were under all the rocks in the Bush administration? So what happens when THOSE same people are making all the real policy decisions because Congress has totally abdicated it's policy making function? Well ... we get wolves in sheep's clothing legislation put forward like HR 2749. It MUST be stopped.

And by getting on the phones now and making a public record of all our calls at the page below, we can generate so much bad PR for members of Congress who won't listen to the people, that even the most tone deaf of them will have to start dancing eventually. So let's get it started, and show the whole country how many tens and hundreds of thousands of us are on to them.

HR 2749 People's Phone Lobby:

The problem with food safety is NOT that the FDA doesn't have enough Gestapo like police power to harass small farming operations. The problem is that the FDA is perversely determined not to look at the real source of all the filth in our food supply, and Congress is doing nothing by way oversight to make them do it. And HR 2749 just gives more powerful weapons to people who can't be trusted to use responsibly the ones they already have.
