  1. I see problems of legal and science types. Legal: I understand the U.S. Constitution to be law that all branches of the federal government must obey. Food labelling is not a power granted to the federal government. Science type: I learned in high school chemistry, that anything containing carbon and hydrogen is organic. Therefore, the asphalt pavement I walk on to get to the grocery store is no less organic than the food in the store. The idea that if something is organic, it’s better for your health: snake venom is organic, botulism toxin, nightshade toxin, puffer fish toxin. I have gone far down the path of losing my patience with anything like “Oh, good, it’s organic”. And “natural” cheese(?), cheese doesn’t exist in nature.

  2. They tried this in the Socialist People’s Republik of Kalifornia.
    I have no doubt the federal version will stink just as much.

    The left likes to complain about those behemoth corporations, but this kind of thing is what kills the small producer and they support it wholeheartedly.

    Large producers can afford to test their products on a regular basis and label everything they sell.
    Small producers do not have the money or the time.
