More fun with authoritarians

They're proposing a regulation that would force anyone who grows or produces food or food products, then transports them for sale to register with a new bureaucracy, and submit to a bunch of different tests, submitting all kinds of samples and keep all kinds of records, even beyond what is required already. 

This bill is going to cover nearly everything, and would probably put a lot of family farms and small businesses under.  This would leave most of the food production in the hands of a few major corporations...which are of course fairly easy for the government to take over.  Thought the state taking over the financial system and housing market was scary?  Just wait till they move to take over food and medicine.
