calling a small farm $5000 is a rip off
taking money from folks because they grow organic is a rip off
set the standards and fine those that break the law not the honest folks
if you come and inspect me and i am telling the truth u pay for the
inspection if I am lying I pay and get a fine . easy
now I pay a certifier, a inspector ,the state of Ca. etc how many pencil
pushing bureaucrats do I have to pay off just for telling the truth and
they all require paper work and can all charge me what they want. whats
with that. no one can tell you what you will have to pay to be organic
because every one charges what they want and u have to pay. it's a rip off
there are too many folks NOW with their hands in our pockets now.
I can't afford to give all these folks money now.
the organic tax is a rip off.

easy take the burden off the backs of the growers. they are paying to much
now. why do I have to pay a certifier and the state of Ca. both for the same
thing and why should I pay the USDA for the same thing I am paying everyone
else for. why do I have to give paper work to the state and be inspected by
the state and the certifier and pay them both for the same dam thing. its a
big rip off NOW and the USDA are talking about adding to the burden not
lifting it. I say let those that are lying pay and those that are telling
the truth not pay
this whole thing is a rip off. Mafia protection money . you get a letter
from the state of Ca. ok your organic now you have to pay us every year and
kiss up to us and the certifier sends a letter ok your organic now You have
to pay us every year year after year and the inspector sends us a bill yes
you are organic now you have to pay me every year year after year for the
rest of your life . I know I am organic what did i get from all this
nothing but a stinking little piece of paper more work. more bosses more
slavemasters now the USDA want to get into the act. ok your organic now
every year year after year after year you have to pay us. bull shit how
many pencil pushing bottom feeders do u have to pay off to tell the truth
the Mafia won they are now the Government and they got the organic grower by
the cohoniess and all these folks can charge what every they want and we
have to pay.
I can go on and on . those that feel it know it.
I say organic growers should not have to pay one cent more than any other
grower to grow and sell their crops and if they are organic they should be
able to tell anyone the truth. if the USDA wants to set a standard let them
if the USDA wants to regulate certifiers let them but don't tax the organic
grower for doing the good that he knows.
Its too much now
not one more cent
I need my money go rob someone else.
