S.510 Depredation

S.510 Depredation:

There is an important article everyone should read over at the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund. The Senate is working hard to take away not just our rights to farm but consumers choice.
  • “There is no absolute right to consume or feed children any particular food.” [A–p. 25]
  • “There is no ‘deeply rooted’ historical tradition of unfettered access to foods of all kinds.” [A–p. 26]
  • “Plaintiffs’ assertion of a ‘fundamental right to their own bodily and physical health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families’ is similarly unavailing because plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish.” [A–p. 26]
  • “There is no fundamental right to freedom of contract.” [A–p. 27]
Comment: There are no rights when government is "god."

Comment 2: I just got through reading the information posted by the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund and it's well worth your time to check out. This bill is horrible and we need to fight this to the hilt.
