America Speaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Topics for discussion: 1. Don’t trust Barr, read his prior recommendations! 2. Are you really a contractor or an employee? Two explosive issues Periscope @11am
Barr, like Cheney and Gonzalez believe in the theory, the President is above the Law. If the President does something, it must be legal and Constitutional. Not so fast.
We never learned about Cheney’s. contacts in The Bush White House. Nor did we find and publish the 22 million emails that went missing during the Bush years.
Fast forward to Trump and his priorities. He precipitated a Shutdown on principle not policy. If it were policy , he’d negotiate a deal for the DACA kids and those Hondurans, Haitians and Ecuadorians who’ve been here for 30 yes. on Temporary Qualified Visas. Instead, Trump’s into Pyrrhic victories & winning at all costs. He doesn’t pay for his dreadful policy decisions, he’s unaffected, but “ We the People”pay dearly, with our homes and our lives.
Trump shredded all his notes on his private meetings with Putin. That’s not legal. He broke the Law and yet, who is calling him out? What are the consequences for breaking the Law. The note’s of the President, everything he utters, becomes the property of “we the People”. Those notes belong to the American people. Perhaps we need a better Education , one that provides an understanding of American History , the Constitution and the Laws of our Land. Than we can all be Citizen Advocates. an aside, back to Trump’s latest pick for AG. He wouldn’t have nominated him, if he wasn’t in his pocket.
Barr has the same views of the Presidency , as Cheney and Gonzalez. If the President does something, it’s legal and Constitutional? Really, Presidents can be removed from office for High Crimes & Misdemeanors & Bribery. We don’t have a Despot, we elect a President. If Barr is coming across as a gentler soul, don’t believe him. He’s been coached. He’s been advising the President. He believes the President is above the Law, since the President makes Law. We have no checks & balances on this Presidency.
- The President, his Cabinet and the GOP that supports him, don’t walk to the People’s drummer, they hear the rustle of money &the beat of power! They don’t play our tune. They dance to Corporate Entitlements, there is a quid pro quo, just not within 24 hrs.
Barr will say anything to be nominated and then do what he thinks is right, not what’s in the best interest of our Country. He’s already said, he’d summarize the Mueller report. This man doesn’t represent an independent Judiciary and should not be confirmed.
Topic #2 Are we Independent Contractors or Employees of a Corporation? I’ve always hated the term “Gig” economy. It reminds me of tools not people. To be used, as required and than discarded. Not so fast.
If you’re a 1099 , working for a large Corporation, you may be an employee! Independent Contractors negotiate their own times, rates of pay and hours. If you don’t, then you’re an employee entitled to the rights and benefits of an employee. Everyone in the Independent Contractors box, should mount a Class action suit against their employers and sue for the taxes, benefits and compensation due you, along with Vacation & sick leave. Those arbitration clauses probably aren’t legal either.
The Corporation has broken the Law by classifying employees as Independent Contractors and the remedy is a Class Action Suit to break their hold on people. Independent Contractors can’t sign non compete clauses either. That, too, goes against the definition of Independent Contractor. Why is the Law asleep? The easy answer, “We the People” have no one looking after us, no independent Judiciary or Savvy Lawyers, everyone is preoccupied with the “Chaos du jour”.
- Wake up and pay attention and continue to pay attention or we’ll lose more rights.
When you’re playing to win, know that the opposition will go to any lengths to win. Lying, cheating, softening their stance , all is fair, as long as they get what they want.
If you like giving up your rights. If you’re comfortable letting Democracy slip away, remain silent. Otherwise, raise your voices high in protest and mount legal suits to protect you. Extremism in defense of Democracy is no crime. Goldwater said that.
We want our State of Equality and fairness. Ruthless doesn’t work in the best interest of “We the People”. Lincoln , TR and FDR were not ruthless. They were up front and transparent in their dealings with their “fellow man”.
See you later and we’ll chat.
