Europe: Them Or Us
This is the title of 2 programs aired on BBC One on Tuesday 12th and 19th April 2016.
They trace the history of our dealings with what is now the European Union from its start to now. The reason they are being aired now is because, as most people know, both inside and outside of the UK, we are going to vote on the 23rd June 2016 whether we want to be part of it or not.
In one way they are definitely Them and not Us and that is in most of them have a written constitution and we don’t. And their parliaments are subject to it whereas ours is not. There are restrictions on our parliament in that no individual parliament is allowed to bind its successors. All laws they pass have to allow future parliaments to change them. Read More…
I have done quite a few posts on language and how it is being redefined, with particular emphasis on the redefining of marriage. Those of us who disapprove of this redefining say that redefining it to include 2 people of the same sex marrying would mean that language and laws that have been around for hundreds of years would be redefined and they would find themselves in a mess. This has proved to be true as an entry on the Coalition For Marriage website proves.
I have put the whole article below under the title: Read More…
Strategies: 7 keys to crowdfunding success Greenville NewsSo, in 2012, Congress passed the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act. Among other things, the law allows start-ups to raise money from the public through crowdfunding sites.
Crowd Funding In 7 Success Steps
How to Succeed With Crowd Funding
There is a new option for small-business owners, inventors, etc who want to raise money. It is crowdfunding. Up to now these people only had 2 options when seeking investors. They could beg from family and friends and if it was a promising concept investors and venture capitalists.
But they couldn’t appeal to the wider public and if they thought it was a good idea help them to get it of the ground. The reason for this was because there were laws that prevented people loosing their money to scam artists and stopping them appealing to more than certain number of those with personal wealth.
But with the advent of crowdfunding and crowdsourcing as it allowed those with creative ideas to get input from potential customers. Crowd Funding also protects both those who want and those who are lending the money and more than one person is doing the lending. Read More…
In an earlier post I looked at Language and How We Use it. . I demonstrated that some words are being used illegitimately. In this post I want to look at the ways we redefine words.
In July 2013 our government redefined words, by redefing the word marriage. Those who supported the change tried to convince us that they were only including others in the word, but this is not the case, as a moments thought about it shows.
It is not, as some suggest, discriminating against those who are not now included. This was suggested by someone who wanted the law to be changed. They said they were being excluded, but the truth is they were and are excluding themselves. And no redefining words will change this. Read More…
Website Done For You
There are many internet marketers offering to give you a free website, but when you take them up on their offer you find that you have to subscribe to a hosting company who provide you with hosting, but nothing else. The one I want to tell you about in this post could be more different.
The person who is offering to build you a website is Stone Evans. He has been doing this for 10 years and the hosting company he is using is GVO. I have been with him for a number of years and when I joined it was another hosting company with a seperate autoresponder, which, as you know, if you have read earlier posts is part of GVO.

What Should or Should not have a Patent on it
“It’s unbelievable”, say Avaaz, telling us that “Monsanto and Co. are at it again. These profit-hungry biotech companies have found a way to exclusively ‘own’ something that freely belongs to us all — our food! They’re trying to patent away our everyday vegetables and fruits like cucumber, broccoli and melons, forcing growers to pay them and risk being sued if they don’t.”
No one owns or should own the means to produce our food. What they are asking to patent belongs to all of us. Read More…
As You Think: So are You
People today are starting to acknowledge a truth that writers of the Bible knew 3000+ years ago. For instance Solomon (Proverbs 23:7) says As he thinketh in his heart, so is he. The United Christian Broadcasters in their Word For Today took this theme up and on Sunday 5th of May 2013 said:
It’s not what others say to you or about you that determines your future; it’s what you say to yourself (i.e. think) when others have finished speaking! Read More…
Decline In Wildlife
Today (Sat 23rd March 2013) I received a communication from the Social Association on the decline in wildlife, with specific emphasis on the decline in bees. I had let my membership lapse and they asked me to renew it and then said that I was “probably aware of the Keep Britain Buzzing campaign, launched in response to the startling decline in the number of bees and other pollinating insects in recent years.” But these are not the only ones there is a decline in wildlife generally.
They added that the “reasons for the decline in the bee population are complex, but evidence strongly points to an important factor. Read More…
Internet Tools Needed by Marketers
In earlier posts I mentioned that I am a member of Global Virtual Opportunity and have joined their programs as soon as I am told about them as they provide the internet tools that marketers need. This is usually before they are launched, as existing subscribers are told about them first. The latest one they have now launched is called Pure Leverage and it is a truly set and basically forget as far as the program itself is concerned, as everything has been done for us and supplies the internet tools we need.
It has 3 parts. The first part which everyone joins is a suite of internet tools that marketers need to run their business. The 2nd is to become a Reseller so you can promote it and earn money. The 3rd part is an upgrade that you can also earn money on. Read More…
