The Voice of Joyce: if you want real facts and a change back to past values, support me now with talent and money! I can’t be a little Voice for change! 

June 21, 2017

 

 

No time like the present to ask for help. Dear followers, I’ve gotten support and encouragement from many of you and I thank you.

 
Now I need people to step forward and help me form an organization that moves from Social Media to the streets of our Land. We’ve got to strengthen and enlarge our media footprint.

 
We’ll go to CrowdPAC for funding. Initially our efforts will be volunteer till we’ve got a professional presentation.

 
Who will join m?   I support a National Healthcare system, if possible,  and Social Safety Nets .   Our leaders knew millions would lose jobs in our Market Society,  where everyone and everything has a price. For 30 years we have been purposely divided so that those in control of our government and their enablers could reap the benefits.

 

 

No more! Too many of us see what’s happening and we protest.  This time, unlike during the 60’s our protest will be non violent. No need to spill our precious blood for the benefit of a few when a National Shrike will suffice.

 
Support me and we can build on what exists and create a better way of life for all of us. Take a chance, stop hating Democrats or Republicans, urban or rural folks and support each other, because we’re all suffering.

 
Let’s share our stories. That’s what I’ve been trying to do for years. Read my posts and you’ll get the facts as I see them, unbiased and non partisan. We’re Americans. United we Stand.  That seems to sum up how I feel. I prefer “United we stand”. How about you? 


Joyce America Speaks Periscope @11am. Late Stage Capitalism! Time to strike! Or allow the Market Society to persist at your peril! 

June 21, 2017

 

 

Late Stage Capitalism is producing inferior products and despairing low productivity employees. The consequences: “we the People ” are paying for the despair of others and their poor workmanship with our lives.

 
In war we don’t appear to be excelling. We used to, not now. We can’t protect our selves from the enemy. I can’t imagine what happened to our ship off the coast of Japan? Why did it suffer severe damages and loss of life?

 
IN NYC subway systems, the “old” cars lasted generations. The new ones  have massive electrical failures. Not even the conductors can control the path and speed of the trains. Being stranded with no power has  become a routine occurrence. Why? Where are the folks, the computers and the signaling devices tracking the subway system? What happened to preventive maintenance? Accountability? Short term thinking , using budgeted funds irresponsibly , is costing people their jobs and shortening their life as they breathe stale air underground.

 
Our Healthcare dilemma has taken many forms. It’s failing ordinary Americans because those in power are literally against any healthcare coverage , period. They don’t see the necessity to maintain a healthy populace and only believe you should have catastrophic care. They’re out of touch with reality. They don’t know the facts. In South Korea the average life span is 105 yrs because they have a National Healthcare system that caters to ” hypochondriacs”. Some things can not be privatized. Healthcare deserves to be a single payer system where everyone benefits and the Uber wealthy can buy into “boutique ” practices as a choice.  Until then, guarantee subsidies to the Insurance Companies allowing them  to maintain a competitive edge .  Re write the Law for Big Pharma price negotiations.  Stabilize our existing ACA then move forward in a Bipartisan way in 2 years.

 

Meanwhile, too many of us , part of the once comfortable lower upper Class, are supporting family members who are part of the long term unemployed. This should be the job of Government. Congress and previous generations of legislators who knew we would have an employment crisis and did nothing for 30 yrs. “We the People ” do not have enough resources to support our children and grandchildren. Our State of Inequality must be reversed. Or most of us will have a Sophie’s choice of putting food on the table for our selves or the rest of the family.

 

 Let’s take back our Country sooner rather then later. A National strike beginning July 4 th is sounding more appealing every day!

 

“the heart and pulse of the Middle Class”


Joyce:America Speaks Periscope @11am Monday : Enough is enough! Let’s unite to seek Common Ground 

June 19, 2017

 

 

Why should we the people remain hostage to bad policy ? 

 
Trump does nothing to help we the people or his base.  80% of Americans do not want the ACA repealed and replaced.   Negotiate with the Insurance Companies, assure them of subsidies , lift the law limiting negotiations by Medicare on Big Pharmaceutical Corporations and “Fix”  the ACA .   Make it more affordable! It’s like us , a work in progress.  Anyone in Congress will get the Glory for making the ACA a quality healthcare product at less costs.

 
In the normal course of events we’d talk to each other irrespective of our differences. I understand  and don’t support the intensity of hatred between Democrats and Republicans.   Denial of good policy to hurt your opponent makes no sense. It makes no sense to have winner take all politics. In fact, it harms all of us!
Destruction of a previous administrations policies, for the sake of claiming victory for one group ,over another , makes no sense. Politics affects our lives. It isn’t a “blood” sport with a winning team.

 
We can vote out bad policy, by voting out all of the people’s representatives who act  in the interests of their benefactors instead of in the interests of we the people.   We have to ask, what happened to Statesmanship?  and the  concept of achieving  Common Ground?

 
Hopefully, Trump and his administration and their enablers will be voted out of office. Some may be impeached. None of these actions can come soon enough for me! I’ve never felt this way before.   The lies spread to demean and disenfranchise people are an unconscionable representative of folks no longer concerned with the unity of our Nation.  Sad, so sad and destructive.

 
I champion the right of the Center to exist. I champion civility and espouse decent common sense bipartisan policy.   In this age of transparency, those who hide from us and their peers, shows me they are up to no good. Enough is enough.

 
Let’s go for Impeachment and elect me as the People’s President, sooner rather then later. I promise to stock the cabinet with a bipartisan diverse group of experts.
If you’re with me, tell your Congressman we want to Impeach and remove as many reactionaries & Trump cronies as possible. We want to move our Country forward with real, not Trumped up , jobs. We support the center and seek common ground.

 
The sooner we remove this group of do nothing’s , the sooner America can get back to restoring our economy and jobs. We want revenue not tax cuts. Let’s unite for the greater good. Together we can work toward eliminating our state of Inequality.

Joyce America Speaks Periscope @11am Friday: The shooting!  Bad policy is making people “crazy”.  Do you see “we the People”, yet? 

June 15, 2017

 

 

 

As dreadful as Wednesday’s shooting was, Congress has no reason to believe this is a one off!    Congress continues to pursue Trump’s agenda on Healthcare  “Repeal and Replace”, knowing that millions will be unable to purchase affordable healthcare.  Even if the changes are cosmetic and they kick the “can down the road, why create the perception of harm?  Trumps Agenda,  that he is partially disavowing,  has created hysteria among the populace.

 
The decent folks on the right and the left  who are watching Congress and understand that policy that hurts the Middle Class, also know that policy is not handed down to a Biblical figure, from on “high”.   Rather,  Bad policy  is made by elected officials, who know the people they are hurting!  That’s sad!  How can Congressmen and women, in good conscience , harm the constituents who elected them to  safeguard and protect their rights?   “We the People”,  now recognize that Laws made  by Congress and the President are not in our “best interests”.    Special interest groups demands   and their Lobbyists ,  come before the needs of “we the People”.

 
Until Congress and the President realize that ” we the People” understand our sorry plight and understand that we are not content to have a two Class system, violence may continue.

 
I spend my waking hours thinking how to prevent a Revolution and how to counter bad Federal policy in a rational manner. I’ve come up with Litigation and a National Strike.

 
I know that trickle down economics doesn’t work. So do most people. Our problem, we should have been shouting our stories of despair, loud and clear, every time more then 100 people lost their jobs. Unfortunately, as humans we were too trusting and hopeful, believing our State of Inequality would be short lived. We never realized, like Piketty did, that once the wealthy Class became obscenely wealthy, preservation of their wealth would become an end in itself. The wealthy enjoy their perks and have no intention of sharing. Like a” large sucking sound”  our money, money from “we the People” has gone  to fund the lifestyles of the rich and famous. While “we the people”  struggle to  make ends meet.

 
We understand. We see what’s happened and we’re not content to let this State of Inequality continue. I don’t agree with the Fed raising rates. I see it as a massive giveaway to Wall Street once again. I’d rather use some of those bonds to bail out the Middle and poorer classes. According to my calculations, $1.7 Trillion in bonds could be converted into a cash check of $12,000 to help 154,000,000 survive.

 

A social safety net  for the Middle and poorer classes would be spent and not saved. It would be cash used to fuel many businesses. It’s worth a try!   ” We the People” have suffered for 9 long years with low wages and marginal employment.  America’s Market Society has not worked for us, though it has rewarded CEO’s irrespective of their performance and their shareholders.

 

If  QE for the Middle and poorer classes is not feasible, I’d like to know why not?  I require an explanation for my 10,000+ followers in my on line Community.

 
What do you think dear followers? How do you feel about recent events? Do you think the folks in Congress or the President see us yet?  
See you at 11 am Friday and let’s chat.
“The heart and pulse of the Middle Class”


The Voice of Joyce: Apprentice level jobs only ones available? Time to Strike for more? 

June 13, 2017

 

 

 

We’ve become a Nation of serfs,  serving an entrenched Monarchy! When they say there are 3-4 million jobs out there, they mean , at the Apprentice ship level. I wonder, do apprentices get paid? If they were in the Union, they’d get 25-50% of the Union Journeyman wage scale plus benefits.

 
In our Gig economy, how much is their pay? Most likely minimum wage jobs?  If they lead to upward mobility in 2-4 yrs,  with wage increases , that’s a plus for the very young.

 

This was normal practice in the old days,  of the 70’s and even the 80’s,  when kids getting out of college , with no work experience made a minimum  wage of $25-35,000 a year. Today’s  $’s  should be would be higher, but they’re not.  Sad, so sad!

 

Why were  Middle Management jobs deemed expendable?   Why jave we dismissed qualified project managers and failed to hire them back.  We know the airline s can’t schedule without Middle Management expertise in the business, scheduling and IT.  We know Rehab facilities don’t function well without Supervisory management and staffing.  We know IT requires more then coders and upper management direction.  So, why don’t we care?  The only reason I can discern, a dysfunctional organization only affects, “we the People”.  The CEO’s and shareholders are rewarded at the expense of the working public.

 

So, I see a two class society.  Input at the bottom, no management and the high earners and shareholders at the top. This is no way to run a business or a country. 

 
At some point Americans will  Strike. Wait and see!  If you are afraid someone will take your low level job, don’t despair, there are 3-4 million Apprentice level jobs available, according to our President.  Enough to shuffle through!  Though I still wonder, when will the good high paying jobs return to America?   Where are the proposed Infrastructure jobs?  “We the People”  have nothing to lose but your continued loss of pride and the apathy we’ve sunk into!


Joyce America Speaks Periscope @11am I understand myself and I see you. It isn’t either or , it’s US.  We have a choice! 

June 7, 2017

 

 

 

We have choices. We may be too scared to choose them! I understand. We , everyone of us , chooses our own path to follow!

 
I’m 74 yrs old. If someone had said to me 10 yrs ago, that I’d be planning to run for the Presidency of the United States and enroll in Silver Sneakers, I’d have thought they were dreaming . Those two plans are ” in the works”, as “we” say. If you know me, you’ll understand my fear, my self doubts and my tenacity to persevere and make my plans reality.

 
For one choice , I’ve made a passionate commitment on my own , realizing that the actualization of my dream requires you,  my dear followers and a SuperPAC dedicated to supporting me , my passion for understanding our World  and my desire  to visit our planet and our Country , America, all 50 States.

 
My second choice is easier, I merely have to walk a few blocks, pay $18/a month for a supplement to my United Health Care plan , choose a few exercise programs tailored to my physical requirements and start exercising.

 
One goal I control 100%. The 2 nd one depends upon you, my dear followers and those who have yet to join our Revolution.   We don’t destroy systems, we fix them, one “tweak” at a time. We’re human, we don’t do perfection, we do fixing , trail and error and move forward. Some times it’s a giant step for man and a small step for mankind. It’s what we do, moving forward, slowly perhaps and deliberately,   to get to that giant step  forward for mankind too!

 
Since I’ve had time to think, I’ve used my time trying to understand myself and as an added bonus, I see you too! I have empathy for you, my followers, the advantaged and the disadvantaged.

 
Those with funds need to understand the many who are struggling to survive.   “We the People” were  stronger and more fearless before the Recession wiped out most of our more aggressive and confident traits. Sad, very sad. I understand the less fortunate because I have seen their decent into worthlessness first hand. I know their struggle to survive and feel compelled to give a helping hand and the encouragement to assure the successful return of dignity to someone in need.

 
With compassion, the less fortunate can find a way forward, too. If not entirely out of poverty,  with self confidence and a return of dignity anyone can take responsibility for themselves and make a choice to move forward or stay in place.   Either is a choice.  Both require the inner knowledge that the choice is available to be made.  Then,   It’s up to “the State” to provide the Social Safety Net and job growth “we the People” require to survive well!

 

The very wealthy have similar choices to make. They can remain wrapped in the comfort of their wealth, devoid of all empathy for others, or they can exercise their choice to be their brother’s keeper and move forward in our World, trying something new. Not perfect.

 

New ideas, in fields to numerous to detail once again,  to be improved upon and with out destroying what was. The recognition that we have the power to move forward taking baby steps, is enough to begin our conscious effort into creating the next phase of our Technological advance into the 22 nd Century.

 
We have a choice. We can sit back and acknowledge our misery or we can take small steps toward creating a better America and a better global community.

 
It takes one person to see themselves and those we love first. Then we can scale up our new found empathy to help each other, one person at a time.
See you at 11 am when we’ll continue our chat.

 
“The heart and pulse of the Middle Class “. All inclusive, no one left out! See yourself and dream big!


JoyceAmericaSpeaks Periscope @11am Monday We’re in the Paris Accord till 2020! The other Facts. 

June 5, 2017

 

 

 

It’s sounds good to say Trump acts in the best interest of his base. Sounds good and it’s not true. Trump is motivated by money. 22 Senators advised him to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord. Those Senators took campaign funds from the fossil fuel industry, they were motivated by money.  All  the corporation’s cited,  giving Senators campaign funds , were guilty of ignoring the rights of workers while courting Senators in their States. Check them out: Devon Industries, Peabody Energy, Murray Coal.

 
Trump is influenced by special interest groups, a fact!   What’s more disturbing is his tendency to create chaos & dismay with his policies that will go no where. It ‘s equally disturbing to have both political parties feeding into our fears. No need for alarm on this one.

 

However, The quicker , we the people realize that he uses a strategy of diversion to calm some and agitate others, the quicker you’ll feel better and deal with his feckless policies.
The Paris Climate Accord is a good example of his diversion tactics. Some folks, small businesses think Trump is withdrawing from the World and concentrating on them. While globalists believe he’s exiting the World .  The truth, he’s helping no one and isolating us from the continuing R & D in energy.  Why shouldn”t America create new jobs through renewables?  It is our future, too!

 
How are “we the People” deluded?  If Trump really wanted to exit the Paris Accord and exit the agreement in 1 year, he had to exit the underlying UN agreement. He chose not to do that. Instead he chose to exit the Paris Accord which has International Rules in place, stating no Country can decide to exit the  Paris agreement for 3 yrs after signing.   After the 3 year wait period,  it takes 1 yr to exit. The debate will take place in 2020 , when “we the people” or the next President decide to rejoin. Meanwhile, we remain within the Paris Accord.

 
The take away, be informed and try not to sweat the small stuff! It’s still the Economy, Stupid! We Americans need good paying, jobs and careers! We’re not there yet!

See you at 11am and let’s chat!
