    There is a war on women being waged by the federal government. But it’s not the one of which you’re thinking.


    A new piece of bipartisan legislation is in the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) known as the Personal Care Products Safety Act (S. 1014). The labeling regulations in this bill already exist elsewhere and are not new. However, the fees they create are.

    The View Up Here highlights "Not In Our Name" with @CDHill9

    in Politics

    How many wrong decisions can one nation endure? Every week there's a new story that shows a shocking lack in ethics or judgement on the part of the government. It’s open season on the environment, on science, the rights of veterans, it shames us all. Cuts to investigative journalism by most media outlets are allowing many stories to remain under-covered or untold altogether. Media consolidation has meant there are fewer voices reporting, with ever-tightening restrictions on what they can say. This is a critical threat to democracy, and it's the principal motivation for this film. Independent voices must pick up the slack.


    - The tradition of being at the forefront of scientific research and development, critical to the nation's properity, has been all but abandoned. Our prowess and innovation has been flushed because scientifc research is revealing the effects of destructive policies.


    - Since 2006 there has been an erosion of funding for veterans. The closure of 9 offices has resulted in having to drive for as long as eight hours to receive support. Lump sum payments have replaced life-long pensions, leaving veterans with less.


    - The Harper Government has spent over 40 million dollars on TV ads promoting the oilsands. They fail to mention NAFTA is investigating how Canada is ignoring its own environmental laws. Responsible development is crucial for prosperity, but allowing oil giants to pollute without limit is leading to tragic results.


    "Not In Our Name" (NION) will explore the axis of Industry, Media and Government, which prioritizes corporate interests over the peoples' interests. NION will show similar tactics around the world. The footage will directly contrast the pristine beauty of Canada with the damage that has been caused by de-regulated industry. We will work as hard as your contributions will allow. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1916096034/not-in-our-name

    What Is Real Success?

    in Finance

    What is real success? Most people simply don’t know! How do you know when you have reached success in life?


    Take stock of your own life. Would you consider yourself an example of real success? Can you measure success in wealth? There are many unhappy rich people in the world. What about fame? The tabloids are full of the sordid details of the lives of celebrities; the glamorous life often pulls people into degradation and despair. If we are honest, we have to accept the fact that true success cannot be measured bymaterial means. Such “success,” once acquired, never satisfies in a lasting way, as it appeared it would.Much of the world is in current “prosperity.” Yet—even within the affluent U.S.—95 percent of businesses fail within five years of inception. Across the world streaks the shocking trend of increasing failures. Scores of millions daily allow the creeping cancer of FAILURE to chain them to a life of unhappy circumstances, from which only death promises release.


    But WHY? WHY are only the very few really successful? Is it mere chance—is it just happen-so—can it be luck? Or are there definite reasons? WHY do all but the very few find themselves, by age 60 or 65, dependents? Why must there be old-age pensions, public welfare aid, charities to support the non-crippled, non-handicapped helpless? Why must children so often provide for aged parents—when it ought to be the other way around?
