Joyce discusses clever ways that Mitch McConnell, if he wanted to, could make some small compromises to avoid giant progressive leaps over the carcass of the Senate filibuster. The American people will come to regret those leaps.

Your thoughts and prayers just make me angrier, GOP Senators. Take one or two or three tiny, tiny steps forward toward reducing the scourge of mass casualty gun violence in America. Background checks don’t hurt lawful gun owners, but they might have kept guns out of the hands of two deranged 21 year olds who murdered 18 innocent people in the last seven days.

Joyce reacts to the 200 bills in 43 state legislatures all aimed at voter suppression. The fair thing, the just thing, the right thing is to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. It addresses the problem, without expanding the Federal Government. And it honors an American hero.

Joyce talks about the new social safety net entitlement programs that are buried in the fine print of the 600 page COVID Relief package.  Most of the spending has some real value – but before we make these temporary programs permanent – shouldn’t we discuss how to pay for them into the future? And how some might alter the nature of work in the USA?

Joyce talks about the importance of rebuilding trust with the American people and among their elected representatives. Joe Biden is risking establishing that trust with proposals for a $15 minimum wage and immigration reform on his first full day in office – proposals he knows will go nowhere.

Joe Biden will take Oath of Office on January 20, 2021, under the watchful eyes of 20,000 National Guard troops, Secret Service and dozens of other law enforcement agencies in the aftermath of the Capitol violence of January 6, 2021.  Further violence, blood shed is feared. What Donald Trump unleashed will take many years to corral and pacify. The work ahead is difficult but the continuation of the democratic republic of the USA requires that all of us engage in that work.

Joyce is astonished and worried about the lengths to which many have gone to mislead the American electorate about the outcome of the 2020 Presidential Election. While each voter is entitled to their own conclusions – there is only one set of facts.
