TheVoiceOfJoyce. One reason we’re not making progress & preventing the next Pandemic, funding was cut to a key scientist collecting virus samples Globally for identification. Watch informative video by The NY Times on why Pandemics start and how to prevent Outbreaks!

TheVoiceOfJoyce Under funded and under staffed by 60,000 it’s a wonder Public Health works. Budgets have been cut by 30% , the CDC is out of date, Data collection is primitive throughout the Country. During a Pandemic that has claimed at least 180,000 Americans, money is needed to help people. Only 3% of the budget goes to Public Health. An opportunity waiting for problem solvers.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce There’s an old saying, a carpenter only sees a nail. Trump only sees money for him & friends. Opening up the Arctic to drilling is the worst idea of many. Does he anticipate Fire Tornadoes as the earth warms or more Carbon Emissions? No only cash. No planning. What did he envision when he had no plan either for the Covid Pandemic? Shouldn’t we solve one problem first, before rushing to create another? Disturbing Nature has no good outcomes. That’s why Covid is the first of many Pandemics. Why can’t he control his worst instincts? It’s not easy, but doable , when you care about consequences.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce With America recording 165,000 deaths from Covid, water is a necessity of life , literally. How can the Senate go on vacation as 60 million lose their water rights? Is this the GOP of Lincoln, TR or Eisenhower? We need a 3 rd Political Party!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Justices Block GOP from interfering in Rhode Island’s intent to allow Mail in Voting and grant emergency relief. There should be a National policy of mail in voting forms, especially during a Pandemic. Expand the Postoffice, don’t short change our PO. Change the Laws& keep the PO profitable. Mail in ballots will take more time, money & responsibilities .

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce All Antonin virals with efficacy should be encouraged & developed. It’s magical thinking to expect a vaccine to be a magic cure all. Everyone on our Planet must be vaccinated. Covid 19 would have to be eradicated for 100% protection from this infection. It’s far smarter to test our way out of this infection using the Simple Cheap Frequent Covid Saliva Tedt in every population. This is one issue the World can unite around; the preservation of life and our Societies. We’ll need every tool at our disposal to eliminate Covid & the next microbe to cause a Pandemic. This is not a one time effect. There’ll be many threats to our Societies until we change our lifestyles and allow Nature to thrive along with us!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce As Americans need wages during enforced Lockdowns to avoid Covid, Energy Corporations snatch Billions from workers. When Congress returns, demand a Basic Living Wage & a basic minimum wage of $15/hr. Give the the Lower & Middle Classes an opportunity to succeed.

@earthinstitute on Twitter The strike follows a reckoning, on social media, of how a lack of diversity in many scientific fields make black students often feel unwelcome, unsupported, or even unsafe. “Every time one of us is rejected, beat down, dismissed, ridiculed, or murdered, I question why I am still in academia,” wrote Cassandra Extavour, … More AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce How does #BlackLivesMatter impact our American experience?
