TheVoiceOfJoyce Instead of talking about our rise in violence & meanness, we, everyone of us, can aim for one decent act per day. I still believe our Economic stagnation is causal to meanness & violence. That coupled with cancel culture & identity politics, encourages mistrust, where everyone is the enemy. A healthy productive society doesn’t have tone for meanness! We cure our sick. We pay decent wages and staff jobs appropriately, not stingily! Treat peopke with respect and dignity and we’ll see a less violent & mean person! We’re all waiting for the Hobs Act, the child care relief and educational program! Pass those bills before vacation and people will feel valued. Without Fundamental Change , standards of care, labor rights there is no progress!

TheVoiceOfJoyce There is a need for well trained Police. Start with retraining, add Salary increases, add liaisons with approved counselors to resolve domestic violence, abuse & drug issues. Finally, pass the Hobs Act & the Infrastructure bills to relieve economic stress . Tackle increased Homicides ! Background checks, Ban on assault weapons, etc. The last problem solver is a Federal Law on who owns a weapon, national Registry, automated, and which guns are allowed in the civilian population. All sides deserve pay with dignity and a return to mutual respect. We need an active Police Force who the Public and the Policy makers support!

TheVoiceOfJoyce Lobbyist money pays off, unless Gov Edward’s vetoes the bill that makes it easy to pollute Louisiana air with little consequences, unless someone is killed! Why with the 2 Nd most gas pipelines in our Country, is Louisiana afraid to enforce Laws that make Oil Companies responsible for major fires and gas leaks with sizable pollutants & emissions? Where are these pipelines going. They’re in Louisiana to stay. Why should people suffer for their errors?

TheVoiceOfJoyce While Trump was being investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. He failed to answer Congressional subpoenas . At the same time he was secretly investigating Journalists and Congressional representatives investigating him, along with members of their family. All this illegally conducted by the DOJ under AG BARR! When did we become a police state? Imagine if the 1/6/21 Insurrection was successful? Oregon has thrown out one Legislator involved in the 1/6 uprising, Congress should appoint a Special Counsel and do the same! Autocracies that sweep people away in the Middle of the night are definitely not the American way. Stand up for Democracy! Not party, not a person, our way of life depends upon our activism!

TheVoiceOfJoyce: Agenda(No spoilers)Watch YouTube Tuesday! EPI #84 People, Compassion & Science

I was going to write about Democracy and decided to speak about unequal Education in America and advocate for Science & technology instead, presenting new ideas and an understanding of why we’re being held back !   At least 8 States don’t teach Science and Technology. In Texas alone, Ars Technica has been tracking bills … More TheVoiceOfJoyce: Agenda(No spoilers)Watch YouTube Tuesday! EPI #84 People, Compassion & Science

TheVoiceOfJoyce Climate Goals by the G7 must be met. Yes, economies will lose Trillions & contract , when temperatures rise 2.5 degrees Celsius. However, people will die along with biodiversity & pollution will increase destroying our resources, too! That’s why I wonder, why are American Republicans going all in on Fossil Fuels, do they think they’ll be the lone survivors? Do they think their short term gains are worth dooming all our Resources to extinction? These are the People Joe Manchin supports? People who only cares about themselves& their wants ! The rest of us, what do we want. Speaking for myself, I want a better life for my children & grandchildren, I can’t support short term selfishness. “We the People “have an equal human right to survive and thrive!

TheVoiceOfJoyce Teens temporarily filling low paying jobs & that’s beneficial to them. America still has a problem creating work at decent pay for the 20+ age group. When will wages increase so they can form and support families?Sooner, rather than later ,wages must rise and new jobs created to absorb millions. Starvation is not a solution. Neither is a permanent non working class!

TheVoiceOfJoyce If you want to Unionize with ease, the NLRB Laws that were changed by Elaine Chow, Mitch McConnells wife, must be changed back to favor Unionization over Corporate Power. That’s why Bessemer didn’t succeed. Before, if you wanted a Union, you met in private off site, cast a secret ballot and no one could interfere in your Right to Organize. Union members set the rules of their employment, had a say in working conditions & followed Safety Standards. They were also given a chance to purchase voting stock and a say in Corporate relations. There’s a lot to be gained, ask for Fundamental Change! Ron Wydon of Oregon, is ready to help!

TheVoiceOfJoyce 14 States out of 43 have already passed restrictive Voting Laws that will disproportionately affect minorities. How many States must pass these Laws, before the Federal Government acts to Pass the Legislation needed to support fair voting rights and limited political contributions. Pass HR 1 & HR 4 For the Families Act & S1 in the Senate. Get rid of the Filibuster and legislate Democracy for all!

TheVoiceOfJoyce No wonder today’s GOP doesn’t want History to reflect America’s racist past, in many Southern & TrumpsGOP controlled States, they are racist in their response to unemployment benefits. They look upon benefits as a deterrent to work. African Americans get much less than the white population and now they want to cut out benefits that should have extended through September. Raising wages helps everyone. Increased wages equals increased productivity & less inflation. Realistically, until the Jobs act and For the Families Act, child care and many unemployment benefits haven’t reached long term unemployed or workers in the Gig economy. There will be a lag in employment until people experience relief from economic pain and experience the benefits of child care allowances and resumption of schooling. What we’re-seeing is temporary. Be patient and work with your constituents.
