Animal RFID Plus, HR 875 Spells Doom for 4th Amendment

Farms become play toys for Federal Control Under the Act
*************************************


Here are a few excerpts from this disturbing report about the so-called "Food Modernization and Safety Act".

"The bill will create a new Food Safety Administration and give its administrator the authority to "conduct monitoring and surveillance of animals, plants, products or the environment" on every family farm, ranch, vineyard and fishing hole in the country. Moreover, the administrator can visit and inspect the property and demand that the owner present "papers and effects," and all records relating to food production."

"There is nothing in this bill that requires the administrator show probable cause or that evidence be presented to a judge to secure a warrant for entry into the property. The Fourth Amendment explicitly prohibits government from entering private property without a warrant, "describing the place to be searched, and the persons or thing to be seized." "

Section 405 of the bill says that "the validity and appropriateness of the order of the Administrator assessing the civil penalty shall not be subject to judicial review."

Totalitarianism pure and simple. Create a federal government that controls every non sexual aspect of the citzenry, tell the people they only get what the government gives them, and you quickly have the Chinese and Cambodian versions of communist totalitarianism.

Was Orwell only a generation off?

Interesting how they encourage total "freedom" in sexual relations (which is to say a separation of sex from commitment) yet demand increasing progress to totalitarianism in every other aspect of life.

As Sobran noted, they want to weaken our reliance on each other and strengthen our reliance on them.
