    As many people are feeling the economic downturn hit them, they are growing their own food. However, the government might try to take that choice away from the people as well by passing a bill that would make it illegal to clean and store seeds.

    I wish them luck with that one.

    Passing that law would be as inconsequential as repealing the 2nd Amendment. They might do it, but who is going to obey it?

    Again an effort by big agribusiness to wipe out the organic food industry.

    I notice the guy that submitted this is a Dim. and I mean that sincerely. I wonder if he or agribusiness lobbyists wrote it?

    I got to "well, I've read a summary of the bill" and had to stop. If you're looking for an analysis of a bill, start with someone who at least claims to have actually read it.

    I can understand making it illegal to sell homegrown food products as that is unregulated. I have my doubts that any law would outlaw "growing, sharing, or trading" homegrown produce.
