JoyceAmericaSpeaks Periscope @11am Wednesday: Whose Paradise? An epiphany!

Paradise for whom?  “We the People” have the right to own guns to massacre each other; we have the right to be discriminated upon, not in the usual sense, but by algorithms that determine what house we buy, car we purchase, and loan interest paid.  Now we know the cause of our inequality: tax havens … More JoyceAmericaSpeaks Periscope @11am Wednesday: Whose Paradise?

JoyceAmericaSpeaks Periscope @11am Monday: I’m appalled! What about you? 8% illiteracy and more Invest in yourself!

I’m  appalled.  So many issues that effect us are being identified.  Yet, I just read that 8% of the American population is illiterate!  That is so disturbing; almost 30 million fellow Americans are unable to read or write.  How can they understand the issues confronting us?  How can they vote with certainty, knowing that they’re … More JoyceAmericaSpeaks Periscope @11am Monday: I’m appalled!

  I was driving home from work around 2:30pm on a bright May day in 2010 listening to the news of the first Flash Crash.  I couldn’t believe what I’d heard.  In the short span of 36 minutes, the Dow had wiped out trillions of dollars in trades, 9% of the market, and gradually recovered.  … More Joyce AmericaSpeaks Periscope@11am Wednesday: The Flash Crash of 2010, Dow lost 1000 points!

Joyce America Speaks Periscope @11am Monday. Gun Ownership, Human Capital and Democracy 

The  NRA is finally considering a minor control to prevent mass murder.   They will allow debate on the sale and use of the bump stock, a  $200 item that turns an assault weapon into an automatic killing machine.  I understand from my research, this is not the only way to convert an assault weapon into … More Joyce America Speaks Periscope @11am Monday.
