AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce There is little doubt Climate Change is driven by an industrialized Society. It’s not clear what the impact of climate extremes; drought, floods, cyclones, has on people, poor and middle classes, agriculture, healthcare, productivity and infrastructure. There is a cost associated with Climate Extremes in human life and property!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Since the Supreme Court Decision overturning Roe, many Corporations are giving critical care packages to their employees to cover the cost of an abortion and women’s healthcare. Women are involved in interstate commerce , is this an opportunity to form Unions and maintain these benefits and better pay and working conditions and a say in Corporate Governance? For sure Don’t vote for the GOP that overturned our rights. #RockTheVote2022!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Excellent opinion on how to overcome the Rulings of a Conservative Supreme Court, follow Maine’s example and go back to Law making! 1. To overcome open carry, institute struck health and mental background checks, rigorous training, denial in to open carry in specific areas & liability insurance and registration. 2. To overcome the restrictions to women’s reproductive health, the FDA proposes the use of “ mifepristone “. It’s safe and this recommendation overcomes State Laws. 3. To maintain a separation of Church & State , make all Religious entities seeking public funds to be non discriminatory to the LBGTQ&A community. There are many ways to move forward and another way is to Vote repressive Legislators out of office beginning 2022! We the People “ are not Powerless!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce From the Financial Times essay by Lyz Lenz author : “A story of faith, loss & renewal in America“ She lost her faith in the Christian Evangelical conservatism of her youth, by living life as an American Woman.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Overturning Roe v Wade puts a heavy burden on poor women not seeking more children. They’re already suffering with work force participation , lack of internet and transportation now restrictions are being placed on maintaining the health of their bodies. Will the overturning of Roe v Wade effect how you will vote in 2022?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Good Workers Transportation Bill for air line workers specifically, will raise their minimum wage to $15/hr, give them benefits and insurance. All this to help air lines. Why can’t the government lift all wages to $15 min and increase labors participation everywhere?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Algorithm discriminated against individuals seeking to purchase a home using Facebook driven ads. It’s time to rein in AI, in most industries their built in biases make it impossible to hire people. They should be regulated and/ or removed when peoples livelihoods and lives depend on an honest assessment of them and their credentials and abilities. Algorithms are mathematical tools, they analyze data at best. They should be eliminated from HR decisions and other areas of our society. They’re a data aid to people and can’t make decisions.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Meta, Facebook and Instagram, are places to purchase parts for Ghost Guns. Meta stated the sites were taken down and they’re available. Why isn’t there enforcement of our Laws for Public Safety. Stop Social Media and other Platforms from acerbating culture wars, gun violence and gun purchases. 3D parts for home assembly are still available. Then infected , assault rifles wind up on our streets , in the hands of Gangs. Where is Federal Law ? Interstate commerce? Enforcement.

They’ve been awarded $75.6 million in damages and expect the EPA to set new standards for chloroprene, formaldehyde and other cancer forming toxins in the air. Deadline 2024 implementation! Why do we allow toxic chemicals near population centers? Why isn’t there a cap on their emissions? People safety trumps unabated Corporate Power.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The first of its kind; lawsuits against the manufacturers for promoting their weapons to our youth and criminal populations for the purposes of murder. Now someone shot by a Glock, used in NY subways is suing. Keep the Lawsuits coming and take a page from those who sued the Tobacco & Opioid industry. Firearms manufacturers are no longer protected.
