Today we are going to continue to lean in on the treasonous insurrection and the logic trying to excuse it, the idiocy that made it possible and the sedition that pushed it. This was a serious occurrence and I’ve got more to say, but let's also get into the response democrats are pushing regarding new domestic terrorism laws, republicans like Mitch McConnell finally breaking ranks, and security during the Biden Inauguration.

Today we are getting back to the Biden - Harris Lift Every Voice Plan now that he has won the election. Him winning actually gives this plan more significance now so we wanted to make sure that we are taking the time to look at it thoroughly.

While it can’t be overstated that local elections have a much more direct impact on the day to day life of the average American, it also can’t be dismissed that presidential elections capture the nation's attention in a way that isn’t quite seen anywhere else. With that being said and with COVID still being a thing, we decided to have a show answering questions. We decided to boil the questions down to a list of 7 questions that we feel cover the bulk of all the things we were asked about. That is our show today and those questions are:
2:25 - What’s the outlook given that the majority of this election will be disputed?
10:15 - How can Trump Go straight to the supreme court with election issues?
14:42 - Why do they tell people to vote if it's based on the electoral college and not the popular vote?
22:37 - Why are the different networks presenting different results?
23:45 - Why don’t black people like Biden because of the 94 crime bill?
34:40 - Why does his position on the 94 Crime bill no longer matter?
44:15 - What's the deal With Mask and is there an end in sight for covid?
We just wanted to take the moment to let you know that new content is coming but we couldn't really predict how the elections were going to unfold so we decided to wait and see. Be safe out there, things are getting hectic and people are getting violent.
We decided to hold off on continuing the Biden plan analysis until after the election. Have a safe trip to the polls if you haven't voted yet, and be safe in your homes. We reserve the right to go live on election day #LOL!
Today we are continuing our talk about housing and what is in the Biden - Harris Lift Every Voice Plan.
Increase access to affordable housing.
Today we are talking about housing as we continue with the Biden - Harris Lift Every Voice Plan.
Here is a replay of our first live show. We didn't advertise because we wanted it to be a test. At the last moment, we decided to go live on Facebook, Twitch, and YouTube. We managed to be found by nearly 200 unique people with no advertising. That's pretty huge!
We are still figuring out our style for the live shows as we wanted to pause for conversation but we didn't want to drag out the already long debate. Comments and opinions are asked for and welcome.
The first few minutes are chopped off because of audio issues at the start.
Today we are going to stick with the Biden-Harris Lift Every Voice Plan diving into what they are saying they would do and what should be done for the Black Community. Tune in and share your thoughts!
Biden Plan Points Covered in this Episode:
Today we finish HR 748 starting with section 4116 covering employment compensation limitations, moving through title 5 covering relief funds and finishing up with title 6 covering miscellaneous provisions. We will also be getting into my thoughts overall regarding the entirety of HR 748 and its impact on the Black Community.
We talked about Donald Trump’s Platinum Plan, it was only 2 pages so it didn’t require a lot of time. But now we are going to dive into Biden’s Lift Every Voice plan, which is about 16 times longer and will require a few shows to fully digest. So let's get digesting.
Today we continue HR 748 starting with section 4026 covering reports from the Department of the Treasury and continuing through to section 4115 covering protections of collective bargaining agreements with air carriers and contractors. This show finishes out Subtitle A: The Coronavirus Economic Stabilization Act of 2020 and goes into Subtitle B: Air Carrier Worker Support.
We are going to try something a bit different for this show although not different for the show in general. If you recall when we used to do the Tuesday shows, we had shows called “Trending Tuesday” where we covered the top 10 trending topics according to google. Well today we are going to talk about some of the more popular or interesting news stories over the past week. We are going to be covering the VP debate tonight, COVID situations in the White House and around the country, a concern about Facebook being broken up, health workers addicted to drugs, New York is closing, California has stipulations on opening, Drinking is on the rise, and Harvey Weinstein has not yet finished falling.

So let’s get into it.
Somebody tell Trump that we fixed his Platinum Plan flyer for him. Cause we know how important honesty is for him.
This is the broken one he put out.

During this episode of Lessons from the Screen we are going to take another break from analyzing HR 748 to have a heartfelt conversation. I’ve been getting asked more and more by my listeners to have shows giving my take on what’s happening as a direct conversation/opinion piece, so I figure let's give it a try. Today I have boiled down the list of questions that I usually get during conversations and phone calls into 3 topics: mental health during corona, injustice and fighting for equality, and the political climate. For those of you that don’t know me personally but would like to ask questions or suggest shows, you can reach me at email@example.com.
I know I said I’d be dropping a video this week, but that didn’t happen for various reasons so we are going to aim for next week. I want the video to be quality and to enhance the way the information is consumed not to just be a video. That being said, we still have a lot to get into with this show as we take on part 1 of subtitle F covering Over-The-Counter Drugs and their review. The world however is continuing to move through the pandemic and the upcoming election returned to prevalence as Joe Biden selected Kamala Harris as his running mate.
Continuing the journey we are moving into the part 3 and 4 of subtitle E of HR 748. But talks have collapsed surrounding a second round of stimulus payments from another large bailout bill that was making its way through congress. With the stop-dates for a lot of the benefits in HR 748 rapidly approaching that could spell disaster. That disaster is especially disturbing considering Covid cases are continuing to rise and children are now getting infected at a much higher clip than we saw in the earlier stages. Today we are going to continue our discussion on HR 748 while also talking about some of the other things going on in America in this episode of Lessons from the Screen.
