AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce When citizens protest peacefully, which is our right in a free Democracy, why is Trump tune deaf to the People and the Constitution? Withdraw the troops now, they weren’t necessary before & their presence is inflammatory. No, Mr Trump, we will not give you a reason for Marshall Law. We want you out in November with your toadies. It’s you who has broken the Rule of Law, not We the People!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce 500,000 masks coming to NY & Seattle Monday. That’s a start. We can’t wait a year for more, we need the Defense Production Act, allowing other businesses like the Automotive Industry, to repurpose to make medical equipment in quantity. They have the manpower and the factories. Set them up and we decrease our need for time spent idle.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Most places in America are worse off than they were in 2016. With the Coronavirus by necessity, we’ll be in Lockdown to protect ourselves & community. QE for Middle & Lower classes , working or not, 18 & older require a $5000 stimulus. That’s $770Billion. When it’s over, we’ll need reconstruction & more stimulus. We’re all in this together. Rich & poor for America & Americans.
