    One doesn’t experience self transcendence, the illusion of self only dissipates-🟥

    Children and their families deserve stability and security
    No more evictions from primary residences!
    No child should be taken from a person just because they can’t make enough money!
    No one should live in fear of losing the only home they have!
    Housing is Childcare!
    Housing is Healthcare!
    Base Needs for All!!

    France actually pays families to have more children… they are a valuable commodity; like no other.

    Such an important topic! Thank you for having Ms. Garbes as a guest, TDS and Trevor! The conversation which she tackles in her book will hopefully continue beyond this.

    Honest words, something that is so rare today. Words not veiled in comedy or sarcasm. Just telling a point of fact and what is needed in being able to raise a Family.

    Agree, with her as long as the choice are there for women and nothing taken away or enforced. Why second amendment is protected but women rights are trampled on. It’s still true for other immigrants they do jobs which Americans don’t want or care no one is taking anyones job.

    Economic slavery is a political system that refuses to correct minimum wage to a living wage. Perhaps we need a public vote to correct the wages of the 70’s in politics as minimum wage has increased and NOT what it is today.

    I’ve been a caregiver for many years. It’s a crisis that we are facing right now but it’s going to get really bad. First we need to start recognizing caregivers as professionals and pay them accordingly. We also need some kind of senior intervention programs to help families sort what their options are in their area!

    I’m unsure why she said Filipinos people take jobs American workers don’t want. The Philippines has state sponsored nursing programs. Their countries train their women, then send them to the US to work in hospitals. Then those women send the money back home to their husbands or families. I’ve seen buses of them come to the Social Security office straight from the airport. The US does not offer free nursing or medical school training. But because others countries do pay for their people’s post-secondary education and medical school, we see many more immigrants working in US hospitals. It’s not that Americans don’t want those jobs, it’s more like we can’t afford to train for those jobs. The only other option is going into the military and getting the GI Bill to help pay for college.

    Public child care was a topic that came up in the 60s, but was shut down by Nixon. He felt that it would “Sovietize” the American family and American values. Been unobtainable ever since.
