Chewing on Food Safety: A National Conversation is Needed



To leave the Fate of the Future of Real Food Safety to the decision making capacity of 100 men and women U.S. Senators, 435 House members and Food Safety Policy Makers who may never have shopped their local Farmers' Market or delighted in the taste of butter from contented cows would be an error in judgement.  To imagine that Washington legislators, who may never have delighted in leafy greens fresh picked that morning, contamination free, are suited to make the call on what we who sing  "America The Beautiful" will eat tomorrow is faulty logic.  Food is ours.  All of ours.  It is time to Chew on Food Safety.  A National Conversation has begun.  Let all of us,  GE Lovers, Organic food Lovers, Conventional Food Growers, sit down and enter into an honest and honoring Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Food.

Let us give thanks and praise our Unity in Diversity as a nation.  Let us be grateful that it is an America value to converse before we vote. We can take time to discuss with each other why we all need real food safety based on principles of Sound Health and Healing that have been with us since the beginning of  dinner on planet earth.  New Food Rules.  We call for these now: Food Rules that are in harmony with the beat of nature.  New agreements about what laws we ask our FDA to enforce to protect the bounty of our diverse seeds. We believe that can pave the way to economic renewal that is grounded and rooted in American ideals through turning our beat around with nature.  We want support in growing a bit of our own food.  We want support for community gardens. We want to co-create true earth-based Homeland Security through supporting 1000's of micro-farms. Vegetables do not lie.  We can live with it if some of our micro-farmers are not regulated by national or international Food Rules and Regulations.  We, who know our foods and know our farmers, have the adulthood to decide what we want to eat.  We do not need our FDA to mandate rules for the foods that we want to eat and have been safely eaten since we crawled out of the sea.

We express a new bill of what is right now to participate in our own government.  We ask you to chew with us, to dine with us, to see what local, fresh, organic is all about as we create real food safety for our children and for people of the world everywhere.  This is the kind of fair trade we stand up for.  This is the kind of agreements we as one incorporated humanity ask for.  We ask you, our honored elected representatives to eat and digest with us what is being said here.

All people, here and everywhere deserve good food as a human right.

Lettuce Keep The Beet together now.

The later verses of "America the beautiful" sing out throughout our beloved  Land again now:

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain...

America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Till selfish gain no longer stain
The banner of the free!

America! America!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

America! America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!

O beautiful for patriot dream
...beyond the years
...alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Till nobler men keep once again
Thy whiter jubilee!
