AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Finally, there is a proposal to change the GDP metrics to reflect everyone’s status & contribution to gross domestic product via distributed metrics. Than we’ll see who benefits from Society and who doesn’t in real time data. We’ll know why our happiness quotient is way down for the Middle Class! We know, our GDP doesn’t reflect our State of Inequality!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Stockton residents are given $500 month extra, a 30% increase in their income, by SEED and it makes a big difference in time spent with family, feeling good about yourself, being able to trust. Basic Living Wage when there is no social safety net. Now, 100 families are benefiting from this social experiment lasting 18 months. Looks like a win win

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Time to be humane, #NoNewJails if we weren’t warehousing our kids, tacking on usurious fines, kids could receive counseling, do Community Service & check in with Court appointed officers.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Lawrence Tribe, Constitutional expert, addresses Impeachment as an Obstructive pattern of abuse of Domestic & Foreign Policy for personal gain. If Trump is not Impeached, what will stop him from calling upon Foreign Interference once again and this time to hack all our Voting machines? Election Reform is a top priority to assure one person one vote! ImpeachTrump

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce We have a learning crisis in American schools. Poverty, lack of a stable home , trauma have affected many disadvantaged kids.

Use the full power of the Judiciary to ImpeachTrump now!
