WTO doesn't want us to know where our food comes from...

Interesting ruling by the WTO concerning COOL requirements...

Wow, very "interesting" indeed. Then again if you actually care about where your food comes from, you could always get to know your farmer, enroll in a meat CSA, go to your local farmers market, mail order your grass fed meat etc...Or, hey here's a novel idea, don't purchase or consume products that are of questionable origin, (or that you for whatever reason have a moral quandary over). I mean half the reason governments/corporations get away with things like this is that most folks really just don't care. Or at least not enough to change their shopping habits. 

Agree...

I secretly had held out some hope some that the new Farm Bill would embrace a modicum of reform. Not a major overhaul, but at least a bit of a push in the right direction. But the way they have now decided to just rush it through and write the whole thing in a matter of weeks, behind closed doors by-passing any semblance of democratic process...it's rather disheartening.
