(COMMENT: What do you assert was bad luck and not your fault? All during the almost 30 years that I worked for the federal government, my superiors were under tremendous pressure from Democrat politicians to get rid of their employees who were Republican, and especially those who were White, male, older, and/or non-veteran. In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer.” In 1987, my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing my GAO mentor to retire; he had hired me in 1980, got me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and promoted me to GS-13, currently $102,188/year in 1986. In 1981, Charles Bowsher took over GAO and ran it for the next 15 years. Under Bowsher, GAO shrank dramatically and is now just a shell of what it once was. I suffered a 21% ($20,361/year) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. In 1975, my Democrat IRS superiors succeeded in forcing my IRS mentor to transfer to Texas; he had promoted me to GS-9 in 1972, to GS-11 in 1973, and to GS-12, currently $85,935/year, in 1974. Republican losses in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton increased dramatically since I a) became a Republican Precinct Committeeman in 1999, b) served as the Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster 2000-2004 and 2008-2010, c) served as an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering member 2003-2007, d) served as a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member 2003-2011, e) served as the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, and f) raised funds from DuPage Republicans 2005-2019 so that DuPage Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks. Ever-increasingly those who move into my precinct are Democrats. My wife and I have fertility problems serious enough to stop us from having children.)

— How to keep stress during college from sabotaging your future – Victoria Bell
(COMMENT: What caused you the most stress while you were earning your bachelor’s degree? For me, it was fearing that I would not be able to get a good job when I graduated. Potential employers saw me as being draft bait. They did not believe that my application for a financial hardship draft deferment would be approved. Further, they were under big pressure to hire minorities, females, and veterans. Consequently, I accepted the only job offer that I got. But that job did not really require a bachelor’s degree, it did not provide me with valuable work experience, advancement opportunities were limited, and my boss, who did not hire me, disapproved of my avoiding the draft, having a college degree, being a Republican, being Protestant, and being German American.)

I would focus on a) past and present leaders of the IRP, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization, b) past and present Republican leaders of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Park District, and Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, c) conservative and religious leaders, and d) Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct, their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers. At the IRP State Convention in 2008, I fought hard for direct election of IRP SCC members. In my book, I would focus on the aforesaid who have taken the strongest adverse actions against me because of that.)

They did not believe that my application for a financial hardship draft deferment would be approved. Consequently, I accepted the only job offer that I got. But that job did not really require a bachelor’s degree, it did not provide me with valuable work experience, advancement opportunities were limited, and my boss, who did not hire me, disapproved of my avoiding the draft, having a college degree, being a Republican, being Protestant, and being German American. When I accepted a job offer and gave my boss my 2-week notice, he abruptly and rudely fired me. He would not have done that if I had been a veteran, Democrat, Catholic, or Irish American.)

My Democrat IRS superiors would stress that they did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors would stress that they forced me to resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

I would focus on those who blame me for their losses. I would focus on those who blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for their losses. I would focus on those who blame what I have done as a Republican Precinct Committeeman for their losses. I would focus on those who blamed what I did raising money from DuPage Republicans so that they could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019 and as a TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member 2003-2011, Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster 2008-2010 and 2000-2004, Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member 2003-2007, and American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member 2001-2004 for their losses. I would focus on those who destroy those like me who they cannot manipulate or dominate, who refuse to glorify and praise them, who refuse to pander to them, who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, who refuse to cover up their wrongdoing, and/or who refuse to give them money. I would focus on their political consultants, their major donors, their pollsters, their campaign managers, their campaign staff members, and their campaign volunteers.)

(COMMENT: I am an independent political/government reporter/journalist/editor. All the time and money needed to put together GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and to send them out comes from me. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes could hint/imply/argue/shout that because I am a Republican Precinct Committeeman, the leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Illinois Republican Party manipulate/dominate me. But the facts show otherwise. I am elected, not appointed. Every 2 years, I continue to run for Republican Precinct Committeeman notwithstanding the many adverse actions that the aforesaid, their operatives, and their dupes have taken against me. Of course, those adverse actions have harmed my ability to get out the vote for Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct. Ever-increasingly, MTRO leaders make it clear a) that they would never appoint me as a Republican Precinct Committeeman and that they blame me for all the problems that they and MTRO have had, are having, and will have.)

Neither of my outstanding parents attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. My father fought brittle type 1 diabetes from age 14, worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights, almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, did not buy a new car until he was 45 in 1967 and it was a bottom of the line 2-door Chevy, and died suddenly of heart failure in 1969 he was 47 and I was 21 years old. My father’s parents and his grandparents operated a hardware store in Crete. My mother’s parents and her grandparents operated a farm in Grant Park along the Indiana border.)
