(5 Part Series on VS2015, at bottom of the page)
I am sitting here next to 150 pages of ‘public’ documents that will alter the way we engage in agriculture until the end of days.Â I have thoughts rumbling around my head on what to say, what to highlight, but to be honest this is a very humbling moment leaving me speechless except for deep groaning thoughts which are lifted up to my God.
With faith, walking, and the reality of ‘public’ documents many of you engaged in the food fight opposing the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) now known as Traceability in the age old game of semantic word twisting. Â Â Well, the Traceability regulation, has been passed off to Veterinary Services.Â I attempted to follow the organizational chart to whom they would be accountable and it is a dead end.Â Veterinary Services used to be its own entity, not following the USDA into Homeland Security, but was loosely accountable to the OIE.Â I can find no current org chart with its current status.
VS has launched a SharePoint cloud website where they claim transparency.Â When a person clicks on the links or link references you get nothing or saying it is for private use, namely to claim transparency while not being transparent.Â But most of could guess that already.
I am just going to let the documents stand for themselves.Â It is better to hear it in their own words anyhow.Â It won’t be difficult to connect the dots with Agenda 21, One Health, the enviro-green-wackery, etc…Â As you wade through these documents remember the comment period is not over for Traceability and here we have a massive program, a new inter (intra)net, and even a penalty matrix to bring lashes to those who refuse to comply.Â One thing remains the same…they will continue to use ‘incentives’ (remember the ol popcorn and key-chain to get folks to join the premises ID database?) to ensnare Americans to give up their rights and private property.Â What lies at the end of this agricultural Tower of Babel is slavery, starvation, and death no matter what their pretty pictures and words promise you.Â Enter the Days of Noah…., more on that another time.
For more than 3 years, Veterinary Services (VS) employees have been working to create a new vision for the organization. The national animal health landscape has changed significantly in recent years. VS must evolve to meet the new demands of animal agriculture in the 21st century.
Our challenge is to continue our evolution — to focus not only on the issues of today, but also those of tomorrow. To do that, VS will enhance and refocus the strengths that have made us the Nation’s animal health leader. VS2015, at its heart, has been about how we will reposition VS for the future demands of animal health.
VS New Perspective
VS employees from across the organization have been working for the past 3 years to more clearly define our future. Their work has culminated in a new plan for the organization entitled Veterinary Services: A New Perspective. Our New Perspective addresses the critical steps we’re taking to fully realize our place in the new animal health landscape. It articulates a clear vision for our organization and set specific goals, objectives, and priorities to achieve that vision. All VS employees and stakeholders are invited to comment on the New Perspective; the document itself contains links for submitting your ideas.
