FDA’s Budget Hike to Keep You Safe

Here’s a small note about the FDA that hasn’t received too much attention in the news:

Senate Appropriators Pass $50M FDA Budget Increase, Mainly For Food Law. The Senate appropriations panel cleared the fiscal 2012 FDA budget bill late Wednesday (Sept. 7) to boost FDA funding by $50 million beyond this year’s level, with the bulk of the additional money targeting implementation of the new food safety law and leaving the medical product portfolio with nominal changes ahead of user fee negotiations next year.

Unknown to many, Benito Obamalini’s budget included a 5-year freeze on non-security discretionary spending, except that the FDA obtained a $50M boost, and that is just the beginning for the fed’s stepped-up enforcement of its Food Tyranny Act.

On order to prepare scientists around the world to submit to the U.S. policy on all things food, a U.S. government lab in the heart of the Washington, D.C. statist sewer is already training international scientists in “food safety”: the International Food Safety Training Laboratory. A comment from a manager at the lab:

“The United States is not imposing its methods on other countries,” she added. “There is really a grander goal of harmonization of techniques.”

Force = harmony is a stretch.

    The fact that one frequently hears the phrase “FDA approved” in advertisements tells you all that you need to know about the booboisee. Either the masses (on the whole) are simply not paying attention to the tyranny emanating from DC or they do not know how to assess the information.

    The criminals at the FDA really are ticking me off. I hope they do not get away with banning supplements formulated after 1995. Thanks Karen for your resistance.

    On this subject of food totalitarianism…you know how so many people (all the socialists who surround me in California, anyway) so very deeply admire Scandinavia?  Well, today I just read an article about how Denmark is now taxing saturated fats in foods.  And this doesn’t mean ADDITIVES, but naturally occurring saturated fats, so this tax is added to foods like butter and meat.  And you wouldn’t believe the amount of on-line applause this move has garnered–”About time governments are starting to tax unhealthy foods, let’s hope the US follows suit,” and so on.

    This morning I was thinking about the corrupt, manipulative, “slave-owning” class to whom the populace is nothing but livestock from which to extract the maximum in profits and then send to the glue factory…and I realized that I ALMOST understand them. I mean, the people are truly so very stupid (and also equally as evil if they only had the opportunity) that raping and pillaging them is just too tempting for some predators to pass up.  It’s like the call of Krispy Kreme’s “Hot Donuts Now” sign to the obese, the stupidity of the public must be just too magnetic for a politician to pass up.
