I really need to vote Republican – Senator Coburn, you are not a douche

I must admit that I have never voted for a Republican since I was frist able to vote in 1976.  Watching Senator Coburn on CSpan last night confirmed for me that I need to stop voting Democratic (and raising and donating money) because the Republicans really care about me and my bank account.  Thank you Senator Coburn for standing in the way of a vote on S. 510 (the bill as is would likely pass 80/20).  My god, if the FDA had more tools and resources less people would get sick and I might just make less money.  Thank you Senator Coburn.  I am sorry I called you a douche on twitter yesterday.

    I watched the video. You were right yesterday. The only thing you did wrong was slander douche bags.

    THANK GOD FOR COURAGEOUS LEADERS LIKE SENATOR COBURN who speak out against phony legislation like S-510. This convoluted draconian measure with its CODEX like provisions penalizes and criminalizes small farmers and backyard gardeners who are stIll able at this time to produce HIGH QUALITY PESTICIDE AND HERBICIDE FREE, NON-GMO, NON-IRRADIATED ORGANIC VEGETABLES AND MEAT.

    This type of food is MUCH HEALTHIER, MORE NUTRITIOUS AND INHERENTLY SAFER than the mass produced chemicalized genetically manipulated food and medicine that is forced upon the US and world population by BIG AGRA, BIG PHARMA, etc.,etc., etc. Why is our government trying to destroy this growing and immensely popular mini segment of the food and nutrition industry?

    Will this legislation criminalize Michelle Obama’s enormously popular VICTORY GARDEN if she refuses to use deadly cancer causing herbicides and pesticides on it? I hope that MONSANTO PEOPLE have not already prevailed upon her to use herbicides on this garden.

    Senator Durbin and attorney Marler should take some time to study the fine print in much recent proposed food legislation to learn about how CODEX CONCEPTS are woven into these proposals. (eg. S-3002 and the recently enacted Financial Reform Bill) They should also learn the truth about CODEX and how it is attempting to UNDERMINE OUR CONSTITUTION by writing language into American laws which forces ERRONEOUS CODEX CONCEPTS into the fine print of our laws.

    CODEX was conceived and drafted by a semi-secret group which meets regularly around the world and produces “HARMONIZATION” REGULATIONS which are then forced upon populations worldwide before these populations have a chance to learn about them.
    Most persons in the USA (including some legislators) have virtually no knowledge about CODEX.

    If CODEX finds its way into US laws it will, together with draconian, bogus and unneeded food “safety” laws, without a doubt destroy the presently growing and thriving vitamin and supplement industry and the organic food and farming industry. In the process It will also destroy or maim the growing alternative and complementary medicine industry. These industries, in addition to providing many many jobs, provide the means for many millions of people to maintain good health with a minimum of need for expensive and often risky conventional medical procedures and therapies.

    MOST OF THE RECENT FOOD SAFETY PROBLEMS ARE ACTUALLY CAUSED BY SOME (NOT ALL) LARGE MASS PRODUCTION FACTORY FOOD PRODUCERS WHO FAILED TO OBSERVE GOOD PRACTICES. THERE ARE PRESENTLY PLENTY OF EXISTING LAWS AND REGULATIONS WHICH CAN PROTECT OUR FOOD SUPPLY IF PROPERLY AND FAIRLY ADMINISTERED. DESPITE THE RECENT AND ONGOING MEDIA FRENZY OVER FOOD SAFETY, WE SHOULD NOT ADOPT STUPID DRACONIAN TYRRANICAL LAWS WHICH WILL NOT PROVIDE FOOD SAFETY BUT WILL BE EXPENSIVE TO OUR FREEDOMS AND HEALTH AS WELL AS THE FEDERAL STATE AND LOCAL BUDGETS..!!!

  • You are right; Senator Coburn is not a Douche. I would also like to thank him for speaking out against phony legislation like S-510.
