Keep your eyes peeled:

I have just discovered that a bill has been proposed that will ensure farmer’s markets, roadside produce sellers, and CSA’s will fairly die out.  The article that breaks it down is here:

The Explanation

The site that tracks how far it’s made it from introduction to being signed off by the president is here:

Tracking the Status

I pray this doesn’t make it.  I hope that someone sees that taking away the rights of the small-scale grower from selling their produce will make hard times even harder on many of us trying to survive in a decayed economy.

Why, oh why, would they hinder the american public from making money any way they can in a legitimate and legal way?  How will we be able to eat locally if they manage this?

The second page mentions that most of these types of bills don’t make it out of committee, let’s hope they’re right.

      No, I have not seen ‘Zeitgeist’, I’m afraid I didn’t know there was one to watch? I know the word and it’s definition, but not a watchable version.

      As for the word itself, I suppose it is the spirit of the times that everything is crashing, even the common sense that something like this topic is even possible, instead of instantly cast aside as a bad idea.
