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 If you work for Amazon, you work overtime, you’re overwhelmed & HR & shop management are augmented by AI. Employees are encouraged to leave. There is no upward mobility for hourly employees. If you became sick with Covid, disability may not be covered. Is it any wonder Corporations are finding it difficult to find employees? Life has become precious. That’s why we need Fundamental Change. New rules for Workers giving them the right to organize and have a say in their workplace environment. Instead, we’re getting Corporate PR telling Americans how invested they are in Employees? PR doesn’t replace real commitment. When Corporations stop getting $20 back for every $1 invested in a Congressional representative, we’ll have Culture Change!

TheVoiceOfJoyce GOP adds to disregard for People, compounding , their anti Democracy Voter Suppression Laws by cutting off unemployment benefits prior to the September cutoff. 19.3 million people are food insecure. How can they hurt so many and still be a popular Political Party? Do you honestly think the GOP cares if you’re poor white or a minority? They’re interested in maintaining their Oligarchy! We the People, have no place in their plans for America’s future! Think again , when you vote!

TheVoiceOfJoyce Private Equity and other Venture Capitalists have created their own Tax Laws. Both parties are complicit and codification of Fair Taxation is necessary. The problem, these Uber wealthy individuals & their partners contribute to Congressional representatives who are reluctant to pass new Laws. Times have changed, the Uber wealthy need to pay their fair share, enabling us to create large meaningful jobs programs & Infrastructure projects. Tax all fees at straight income and levy a 2-5% asset tax on the moneyed men & women. Simplify the Law and collect their taxes. We’re not an Oligarchy! The Middle Classes have been overburdened long enough!

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 Drought overtakes the West & Southwest and no counting on the Monsoon to increase rainfall. Last year it was a no show. What happens to ski season, tourism? No snow, no water, warm weather? We need energy solutions yesterday and a chance to survive. Don’t hold your breath for Congress to act, Bipartisanship doesn’t go far enough to help “We the People “. We need Biden’s large Infrastructure plan, nothing less will make a dent in restoring our resources and our future!

TheVoiceOfJoyce The “Big Lie” and fraud continue as Dark Money & inept “auditors” use Partisan oversight to re examine the Peoples ballots endlessly in an attempt to find Voter fraud where none exists, to overturn a legitimate Election . The question, will TrumpsGOP let these fake audits end? They won’t, because they like the status quo;Voter suppression, in fighting among groups, poor education, encouraging a lack of scientific &technological proficiency, low vaccination rates , low wages, cut In unemployment benefits, & programs that Hurt “we the People “! Why change when they can be paid by Lobbyists to support industries rather than citizens ! It’s past time for all people in the Lower & Middle Classes to understand that anyone who denies us the right to vote, a good education, healthcare and decent wages , is not working on our behalf. There is no bipartisanship now, let’sinsist that Biden’s economic plans pass along with Federal guidelines for Election Reforms. Than we want a minimum wage, & a change in the NLRB. New Laws to help all labor return to pay with dignity. A Clean Slate for Workers!

TheVoiceOfJoyce Why charging a 15% tax minimum on actual business expenses makes sense. Corporations would finally have to pay tax on where they sell their products. No more tax havens to escape taxation, lifting the burden of Taxation off the dwindling middle classes. Finally we’ll have money for Infrastructure, etc.
