AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Americans have reason to be fearful of permanent job losses. 61 % have not returned to work. There’s no social safety net for them & the GOP Senate is on vacation? Where is their compassion & understanding of the those unemployed? Reductions in unemployment taxes only reduces benefits. Stop the schemes and give everyoneworking or not, Medicare or Medicaid, 18 & older, cash checks to survive a Pandemic that doesn’t affect you, but effects every American. Give a lump sum $10,000 now to 154 million Americans making $75000 or less. Do it now. The Cost $1.6 Trillion. Provide a Social Safety Net and cut down on our stress. If we had had a National Policy to contain Covid, we wouldn’t be in this position today!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce There are RapidSalivaTests that are faster than SalivaDirect! Harvard has sponsored RapidTests as well. Results in 15 minutes. No School should reopen account to virologists if Covid is raging in ourCommunities. These RapidTests should be in all our homes, in schools and work. They detect the virus when people are infectious and asymptomatic. Outbreaks can be controlled and the sick can be quarantined! These tests are GameChangers

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce I support RapidTests.Org. Please support a Federal Program of RapidSalivaTests & #StopCovidOutbreaks. How?

Dear supporters of Rapid Tests,Some of you may have heard the news that the FDA approved SalivaDirect for PCR testing. This is a positive development, but by itself it will fall short of the widespread screening we would need to reopen schools and offices.First the good news: SalivaDirect offers improvements over the type of testing … More AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce I support RapidTests.Org.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Why are we allowing Covid to cause a disproportionately large number of deaths in the Latino, African American, Native Americans, & elderly, when we have the Rapid Salive tests ready for production at Yale, Harvard, BD , Quidel, Sherlock Industries , Rutgers, 25 BioSciences. We the People need minor cash to prevent these deaths, why aren’t they available to the population. It’s only a $1/day and we save lives, stop outbreaks & resume living. The sick stay home and the healthy are out!!!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce SalivaDirect used to help Labs to detect Covid in 10 min & clear Backlog. We don’t have enough tests to justify reopening schools. Children get the Virus. It’s prudent to use SalivaDirect & other tests similar to it in Schools, families, work place. Then we could reopen Society. What’s holding us back from using these Cheap Simple Frequent test in our homes ? We can stop Outbreaks. Go on living?

Joyce America Speaks Periscope @11am Monday: Scrapping over the Public Purse!

Dear followers:  Before I launch into my Blog Post, expressing my thoughts and the experts’ thoughts on the latest Bill before Congress, I direct your attention  to the  collaborative political cartoons above, drawn by Justin Weingartner in 2015.  We saw our “State of Inequality” and we were alarmed by the influence of money in politics.  … More Joyce America Speaks Periscope @11am Monday: Scrapping over the Public Purse!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Watch the short film on how the NBA maintains competition and gives everyone a chance at equal opportunity. A model for America, you choose! The NBA plan is based on competition & equal opportunity & a fair share. We can use their model to create a competitive environment where everyone gets a fair share.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Hoping for the best isn’t a plan. The Lower & Middle Classes need stimulus to survive the Summer & Fall. Not enough money has gone to the States and more money needs to go to potential workers & entrepreneurs ! My preference: QE for the Lower & Middle Classes. We’ve been stagnating for a decade.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Trump Administration Scrapped Federal Oversight of Police Brutality & racial profiling. Under Obama accountability led to Police culture changes. Now, without oversight and the removal of enforcement there is no accountability & no controls! Trumps administration uses more than Tweets to incite racial unrest!
