Gloria Moraga’s One-On-One podcast provides tips and real-life ways to talk with each other. Are you texting more and more; and talking to people less and less?

My Nancy Pelosi Story - Great to Know and Report on a Real Hero
I was a young reporter covering the California Delegation for Cox Broadcasting. She was a young Congresswoman from San Francisco.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi went on to become the most powerful woman in Congress, but she remained the same strong, outspoken warrior for Civil Rights and Women's Rights that I first met decades ago.
This is my Nancy Pelosi story.
What is the Midterm Curse? And How did Biden Beat it?
Franklin Roosevelt did it. So did Bill Clinton and George W.Bush. Some historians may disagree with me, but John Kennedy did it too.
And now add President Biden to this list. He's beat the Midterm curse. We still need to see what happens in the House. But we can be sure there was no Red Wave from Republicans in this Midterm Election.
Democrats keep control of the United States Senate. And they may keep the House of Representatives as well.
Whatever happens, when all the votes are counted, President Joe Biden's first midterm election has put him in the history books. He wins. And so do DEMOCRACY!

If It Really Is The Economy, Stupid, Then Vote For A Democrat
If It Really Is The Economy, Stupid, Then Vote For A Democrat.
Every Economic Disaster in American History happened Under a Republican President. Of course, Republicans in Congress helped.
Here is the list.
Herbert Hoover - Republican: 1929 Stock Market Crash and Depression.
Ronald Reagan - Republican: 1982 Recession. Cut taxes for Ultra-Rich, then Raised Taxes three times, including a payroll tax which hurt "Reagan Democrats." Tripled the Deficit.
George W. Bush - Republican: The Savings and Loan Crisis. The 2008 Financial Meltdown. The Multi-Billion Dollar Bank Bailout.
Trump - Republican: Mismanagement of the COVID Crisis, which was/is disastrous for the U.S. Economy. He racked up the National Debt by $7 TRILLION! Lost the Trade War with China - which caused the lost of 300,000 U.S. Jobs.

How Republicans Plan to Steal Your Social Security
There are a couple of plans. Republicans are considering stealing your Social Security. How they pull it off is easy - The Debt Ceiling Vote.
Every few years, Congress has to raise the Debt Ceiling. It is not a move that Increases Spending. It is required to pay for Existing Debt.
If Republicans win the U.S. House of Representatives, they will hold President Biden and Democrats Hostage by blocking the Debt Ceiling vote.
This happened before and it can devastate an already fragile U.S.Economy.

Indian tribes and affiliated businesses would operate gambling.
This is the official language from the Ballot: Proposition 27 allows Indian tribes and affiliated businesses to operate online/mobile sports wagering outside tribal lands. Directs revenues to regulatory costs, homelessness programs, and nonparticipating tribes. Fiscal Impact: Increased state revenues, possibly in the hundreds of millions of dollars but not likely to exceed $500 million annually. Some revenues would support state regulatory costs, possibly reaching the mid-tens of millions of dollars annually.
