JoyceAmericaSpeaks Periscope @11am Monday Wake up America, we’re being boiled alive like Frogs! 



What’s the difference between us and the Russians? They don’t care about politics or politicians, as long as they have an apartment, a good paying job and food. They’ve withstood life under the czars, the Revolution, Stalin, and now Putin. The Russian people are ok as long as their lifestyle remains untouched. Tamper with their right to life, liberty and their pursuit of happiness and the Russian people will not tolerate their governments lack of concern for their rights.  Take away the apartments of 1.6 million Muscovites and they take to the streets.

They’re different then us. We are consumed with Politics and politicians and quietly accept our fate, like frogs boiling slowly.    Otherwise, how can you explain our denial of the facts. American rights have been eroding since the 80’s,  yet most of us didn’t realize the harm done to us till recently.   Some still believe in the “goodness” and capability of Donald Trump and his Administration.  They’re accepting the Party line.   They deny their reality and believe with all their heart , as he continues to destroy our Institutions and degrade the rights of labor , that he will produce “good” paying jobs for them.

One has to wonder why are Americans so tolerant? The rest of the World appears to be demanding an end to cronyism and corruption,  while we accept it and shrug  off it’s effects at our peril.  Our economy is not improving.   Wages are stagnant.  Good paying jobs at the management level are non existent.

Wake up America! We’re being swindled. The alt right will not stop their crusade against the poor and the Middle Class till we’ve all taken to the streets or we’re dead. Stop deluding yourselves, change is slow.  I understand. After 9 yrs of being patient myself,  I realize there are no white knights to save us.   I was hoping for a 3 rd Party to emerge and that never happened either.

I am now my own advocate for change. Enough is enough. Bills are passing the House that make my hair curl and few say anything. Every decent Congressman on both sides of the aisle should be denouncing these assaults on “we the People”. I hear some opposition on the GOP side but not many. We need real dissent to counter this extreme agenda. We need centrists. 

I’m no politician and I will encourage decency no matter who says they stand with the American people. Everyone else should get out of our way as we advocate for Legislation that improves the lives of the poor and the Middle Class.  I’ll detail how to generate revenue on Periscope at 11am.

Together we can build an America for the 22 nd Century.  Wake up and join me before we’re boiled alive, ” just like the Frogs”.

See you at 11am and we’ll chat.  More to follow.  Other thoughts to be published tomorrow.  Have a great night.

“The heart and pulse of the Middle Class”

JoyceAmericaSpeaks Periscope @11am People Power, Resistance, Crony Capitalism! Trump Nope!

In South Korea corporation’s are so powerful it is feared that they pose a systemic risk to the Economy. This time with the jailing of the Samsung CEO, which owns 1/5 th of South Korea’s exports, the people want to seriously send a message to corrupt officials.#GetOUT!


The People will no longer tolerate the cozy relationship between business and politicians.
Romanians took the streets recently to protest the rollback of anti corruption laws.  They were successful and ministers were removed from Power!

We the People,  in America, know that government policy makers have been corrupted by Big Business and their lobbyists at the People’s expense.  The USA has already legalized Bribery   Paid protestors are not the problem. The People who have felt powerless without resources are  finally rebelling against a corrupt society.  #Trump?Nope!  Pink slips to be sent to the White House on March 15th, 2017.  Do your part!

Protests are happening  in America and all over the Globe. The internet has shined a light on Nation’s and the result is not pretty. The few in power aided by Multinational Corporations are controlling the destiny of Billions. We the People see the truth and don’t like it.

Crony Capitalism will collapse under the weight of an irate Populace. Wait and See! 

See you at 11am!  Let’s talk.

The Voice of Joyce: America Speaks? Periscope @11am Monday #Inequality, Values : archival Posts

Dear followers,
I’m concerned about our State of Inequality. The side show provided for our distraction continues. Don’t lose sight of “what’s ” important to the health, wealth and well being of the Middle Class!

I’ll publish new Posts and some of my archives. I could see our State of Inequality and injustice forming since the crash of 2008!  Some of these Posts date back 2 yrs.  The quest for a better life continues.


See you tomorrow at 11am.  More to follow!

“the heart and pulse of the Middle Class”

Joyce: AmericaSpeaks Periscope@11am. Enemy of the People 





More assaults on Democracy favoring the Beleaguered Billionaires Club. Anything for them, nothing for we the People.  That’s our new reality.  The Lobbyists and Big Business are now installed as the heads of our Institutions.  Our Question?  Will they care for the needs of “we the People” or themselves?

The potential gutting of key Dodd Frank Rules will leave “we the People” open to worst business practices. We the People really need our brokers to put our needs first. That’s what Fiduciary responsibility means, plus a cheaper maintenance fee . Why should brokers be exempt from watching out for our interests ? Ask that question and demand Fiduciary Responsibility!  The two  other regulations, if gutted, brings the Banking industry back to 2008 on steroids!  The Financial Industry , plus Hedge Funds and Insurance Companies invest heavily in Derivatives  now.  Once they can trade for their own accounts, do you think they’ll think first about you or themselves.

Write your Congressman and start being involved in the workings of local government. Better to become part of local government, become and know the players.  It’s not too late to apply for local school boards and Councils.

Understanding is the key to undermining the existing power dynamic. We’re going to become a Nation of Activists. Look at Romania, after days of Protest, their government backed off diluting anti corruption laws. We should be so lucky.

Other laws to protest: Support the reinstatement and sanctity of  our National Parks and Monuments   !  Don’t let Congress open Public Lands for coal mining, or drilling for gas and oil.  ? Look what’s happened in  Oklahoma? 400-500 earthquakes , the last one was 5.8 on the Richter scale. When do we all say enough.? Insist on investment in alternative fuels and infrastructure as promised. We can generate good jobs at all levels of income , if planned properly.

Big business has hobbled the American Worker, not Globalization, not trade agreements. Their greed created these deals. Focus on the real villains, The American Corporation, the Lobbyists they employ  and the Congressional support they receive.   Custom Laws for the few!  It’s our obligation to spread the news, look at the issues and change “hearts and minds.”

Protest, start running for state and local governments. Support your neighbors. Start learning about ways to improve healthcare and share your findings. We’re all in this together. 360 million against the elite group that governs us and the Businesses that support them.

Thank you for listening. See you at 11am.   Let’s chat!

Joyce:AmericaSpeaks:Periscope @11am PeoplePower Day 6 Push Back expected: Let’s begin 






Dear followers:

Since 2012, I’ve been thinking about a 3rd Party for 5 years, now is the time to seriously pursue this massive effort!  I’ve named our Party, The National Centrist Party, with a nod to a great Political Danish Series, entitled  “Borgen ” .

Who are we?  Our Mission:

  • The National Centrist Party. Has formed out of America Speaks We are “All inclusive”, accepting everyone .


  • As a group we shall push back against the most egregious policies and candidates for government.
  • It is our obligation to become an active registered political party. Our affiliation should be independent and aligned with one of the Parties. While we would like open primaries That has not happened yet, we have to belong somewhere?  I’m asking you for suggestions. ?

I wrote our agenda in 2015 & 2016 and it’s still relevant. Our next step is recognition of our new Party. Recruitment of luminaries to represent us. Promotion of bills to put before Congress and new candidates at the local, State and Federal level. Referendums to change local and state law when necessary. We will partner with other groups to be effective.
If you are interested in joining , send me your email addresses.


Thank you. Push back and the realization of consensus legislation is our mission . Our tactics include civil discussion of the issues confronting us and the crafting of Bills and referendums for government approval.


See you at 11am.  Let’s chat!
Wishing everyone a great day!

Joyce:AmericaSpeaks Periscope@11am”truthines” “post Truth” Deregulating Banks?

Dear followers:

See you at 11am.  Let’s continue our chat on a meet up in January!  My email is , planning session first by our “core” group.  Then open to  anyone wishing to participate in our 3rd Party meet up, planning and networking event.


Let’s talk about “post Truth” , appealing to emotions rather then speaking the truth or citing facts.  A good way to sway voters .    A bad way to inform the public, “we the people”. It’s use is more widespread then you imagine and  subtly narrows  our choices.


Bank deregulation , has been talked about in the Trump administration.   It was proposed by Peter Orszag several years ago, when “we  the people” were considering Glass Steagall for the 21st Century co authored by Elizabeth Warren and John Mccain.  ( FYI several articles have been written by me on “the Voice of Joyce”, starting 2013, 2014 .  If interested please review my archives!)  “Capitalization” was  the new concept, like “plastic”!   It could be tricky, since total current market value of Bank assets may be misleading.  Or, it  could work, if as Greenspan proposed, Banks kept 25-35% of assets in reserve at all times.  It might prompt Banks to reward  and keep insuring savers?  Keeping them “honest” , the Banks, requires  enforcing accountability and understanding their  actual  current debt to asset ratio?   “Tricky”!


See you at 11am.
