This is a warning to all backyard chicken enthusiasts whether you sell your eggs or use them for your own consumption exclusively, hatch them, raise meat birds for your own consumption or for sale, plant a garden regardless of how small - anything to do with raising food. This bill will effectively hand over all food production to the federal government and will have the effect of overriding any state laws. The state will simply be the enforcer for the Fed. All on this forum: PLEASE READ THIS ARTICLE. http://www.ftcldf.org/news/news-02mar2009.htm If this doesn't mobilize you to action then nothing will. They are attempting to control the nation's food supply, money, and real estate - that's how Stalin did it. Contact your state's Senators and Representatives, fax, phone, email, send this to all you know who has an interest - which is everyone. Our very freedoms are under assault and if we don't do something NOW, we will be enslaved without recourse.
