18. Help me to understand...
how farmer's markets, etc. are threatened by this bill.

I assume we're talking about the actual bill, Bill S.510, not the one defeated in March?

I didn't read all the text, but I looked it over and saw just good food safety and improvements in the inspections procedures.

What, exactly is the horrible part of the legislation? Don't get me wrong, Monsanto is pretty evil and I like buying fresh, locally-grown produce.

If we can buy guns off of a card table, I have trouble believing they can shut down small-volume sales like farmer's markets.
