The picture above is the very tap root of Bishop's Homegrown/Face Of The Earth Seed. My grandparents shortly after moving to Pekin Indiana from Greensburg KY in 1947 where they purchased the farm that is now Bishop's Homegrown. This picture was taken in Pekin in front of the old co-op next to the old railroad depot, neither of which exist today.

USDA wants the right to do nothing about unaproved GMO's in food supply

Thanks once again to Agrarian Grrls Journal I have something else to rant about in the form of This Article which claims that the USDA wants the legal right to do nothing about unapproved Genetically Modified contamination in the food supply.

Fair enough, the USDA doesn't want to do it's job and wants to once again bow down to the feet of the GMO monster, fine, then I and many other traditional and organic farmers want permission to destroy by any means necessary any GMO crop that violates the sanctity and genetic structure of our traditional crops by means of the stealing of traditional genes via PVP and or the transgenic contamination of our crops via free floating genetically modified pollen. In case your wondering what that means, we want permission to destroy these GMO crops the moment they touch soil anywhere in the vicinity of our farms and crops and we want the ability to sue the manufacturer of said GMO varieties and the USDA when they end up in our food supply endangering the health of our family, friends, and earth.

That should be "SUBSTANTIALLY EQUIVALENT" to what the USDA wants. IF you don't like it, too bad.

No Fear, No Regret, No remorse, Freedom from tyrants! Don't tread on me!

hey Allan.
I don't get why there aren't cases before Supreme Courts, in your country and mine challenging the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Its a decision of conscience to live without GMOs. The absence of choice to avoid this abobination : trans-species, the modification of creation - it is an infringement of our rights In my food and garden, on my body, and in my truck. Freedom of religion and conscience. Perhaps we need to mobilize things in the courts. Why isn't that happening?

I wish we could all pull together and fight the enemies which seek to subdue us and our opinions and spiritual beliefs, unfortunately there are too many chiefs and far to few Indians to pull together and get it done I think! Keep up the good work anne, maybe together we can inspire hope and fight this!

I agree! It makes me mad that there are not labeling laws either, we don't know if this GMO is in our food. GRRRR. It would be nice if the government agencies that were supposed to look out for the public's best interests actually would do their job instead of hiding in the pockets of large agri-business

Why isn't there a big class action suit... a constitutional challenge?
What happened to freedom?
