AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Latest Global News. Trump notorious Liar & air time is divisive. He should wear a mask to protect others, that’s responsible behavior. Elon Musk is not above Laws either. Where does this sense of entitlement & magical thinking come from? The Countey needs leadership that’s focused on understanding our pain & a plan to move forward

We’re on Covid Time, there’s a new normal! http://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/05/12/coronavirus-update-us/

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Lebanon Government corruption has reached a new high and 50% of the People are now below the poverty line. Sound familiar. Prices going up for staples, bail outs for Big Businesses & Government does nothing to protect their Peopke. The Peaopke have had enough. They’re protesting. The Lebanese are going to do without rather than pay high prices for food!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce America under Trump will never rise above the effects of Covid 19. He is opening states blindly, with little testing & tracing of contagion. He prefers Liabity waivers, rather than safeguard the lives of employees or employers or consumers. If workers are so important to the economy, make them citizens, if they’re not already, and recognize their heroism! Further, instead of diving our States, insist that States of plenty share their produce and products with the rest of us. Why should anyone be hungry in America? There’s a lot to do to bring back America’s can do spirit. First you have to care about Americans. All 330 million people . Trump & TrimpsGop only care about their interests and the massive cover up they’ve perpetrated because of their purposeful ineptness and callous disregard for American lives. Unless you’re a fetus, the rest of us are expendable.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Shame on Trump & TrumpsGOP Isn’t enough that you did nothing to protect lives & our Economy. Now you want to shield big businesses from Liability Insurance. They should be responsible for the health & well being of their employees. Liability will regulate how Labor is treated. It’s enough catering to one class over another. Small businesses always had compensation & Liability Insurance, why shouldn’t Big Businesses? Equality Neutral. The safety of workers, first.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Now that we’re experiencing Covid 19, we want to be prepared next time. That means stockpiling PPE’s, Creating platforms for testing kits, mobilized testing throughout our Country, more hospital beds. US has 2.3 beds per1000 & South Korea has 12.8. An emphasis on health makes a flexible resilient population at all times. Better for people, better for the Economy. Prevention costs less than just in time response to emergencies.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Why we need a functioning Federal Government? They can coordinate the needs of each State & ship the necessary Tests & PPE’s required. If the War Production Act were imposed, every pharmaceutical company, lab , startup would be able to contribute to this massive healthcare market. A population of 330 million requires a Billion Tests & tracing of the virus’ spread. The States are not equipped to accomplish this task on their own. In fact, that’s why we have a Federal Government, to unify our country .

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Why aren’t the Europeans suffering economically like Americans? They have better healthcare, more generous unemployment benefits, less layoffs. They keep people working on staggered shifts & flexible schedules. They’ll take an economic hot, but their economies will survive and so will their peopke. They care about their employees. Our Oligarchsmainly care about their own self preservation. Otherwise, there would be oversight to maintain employees wages, even if they can’t be productive during a Pandemic.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce As we fight Covid 19, this town is also battling another Plastics Plant with the potential to further increase cancer cases with their toxic fumes & pollutants. There ought to be a Law , saying they can’t build in population centers. Unfortunately, corporate power reigns & Trump loosened pollution controls. People over Profits so we can survive & thrive

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce A law has been passed, only essential businesses remain open, others can go online temporarily, until PPE is available to everyone along with masks & gloves. This is the best time to Unionize . Labor can no longer be abused! Use common sense. Make less money & stay in business!
