Hear of the FDA Globalization act of 2008? Probably not, CNN and FOX news are far too busy covering slaves fighting for their freedom and fake politricks. Just so you know, all is not well in our so-called ‘capitalist’ society. Since earlier this year the FDA has been trying to pass legislation to require any company who manufactures cosmetics, such as soap, shampoo, make-up, etc, to pay a minimum of $12,000 yearly in fees, and to file ridiculous amounts of paperwork for every product and new ingredient added to any existing product. If passed, this could mean the death of small business, especially in the natural and organic cosmetics market.
“But Imperialist, shouldn’t they be required to do this? For our safety”
Sure, but creating laws that would cripple the development of small business in a time of recession is asking for larger, more powerful companies, to impose higher prices and literally monopolize the market. It is taking it a step too far, and it’s intentions are obvious. It will leave us with the choice of covering our bodies in lauryl sulfates and ammonium phosphates, or simply not showering to avoid toxic contamination and smelling like a dirty politician.
Sign the Petition and make noise on myspace/facebook/whatever
Dr Bronners may be safe, they probably make enough to cover the fees and a system to handle the paperwork. But say goodbye to that wide variety of yummy soaps and shampoos available at your local natural foods store.
