and I soon grew out of it.
I am a little angry. I was just reading over some of my fellow homesteaders blogs, and Cauldron Ridge had a NAIS update. Angry? No, I am livid. How dare they push this program off onto our children. So much propaganda, it actually hurts to think that Future Farmers of America could be lulled into such complacency.
NAIS isn't a good program. It doesn't prevent disease in animals, it will not protect us from terrorism. It will take family farms away, placing them into the hands of factory farms that can afford the equipment.
NAIS is just another program to tell the American people what they should eat, and how to use their land and homes. We are steadily losing our freedoms because of money, greed and fear. They seem to think that we are actually willing to roll over and allow them to pat our bellies like good little dogs. I know the USDA reads my blog, I see them, and I don't care. I AM NOT AFRAID.
Do you really want to eat cloned meat? Do you really trust and agency that would go to court because they didn't want to test more then the less then 1% of slaughtered cattle at one slaughter house? Do you want to be mislead about organic foods? Recent history of the USDA has been laughable, if it wasn't so terrifying.
All these new rules that are to keep us safe are plain wrong. They do nothing of the sort. These new laws that they are pushing put us in more danger. Food labels will be legally able to mislead consumers. Factory farms, and big agri-business will be the only ones to benefit.
If you eat, then NAIS will affect you. Please, do your own research and make up your own minds. Do not be bullied it rolling over.
