— Finland tops global happiness index for 2nd consecutive year – AP (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs focus on making Republicans unhappy, and especially Republicans who are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
— The next #MeToo movement: Older women confront ageism – Bonnie Marcus (DIERSEN: All my critics/opponents, all their operatives, and all their dupes promote age discrimination a) because they want to get rid of those who are older than they are and/or b) because they want to curry favor with those who promote age discrimination. Democrats run the federal government. Starting when I was 25 years old in 1973, my Democrat IRS superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates stressed to my IRS superiors that I had failed to meet their up-or-out deadline for their employees like me who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran – I had failed to make GS-13 (currently $96,403/year) by age 25. I did not make GS-13 until I was 38 years old in 1986 and working for GAO. The Democrats who run the federal government use up-or-out, Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion to waste the careers and to get rid of their employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
— In TV debate, Toni Preckwinkle questions whether Lori Lightfoot has the experience to run Chicago – Bill Ruthhart and Juan Perez Jr.(DIERSEN: What experience do you have? Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. If you have experience, your critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes ignore, dismiss, belittle, demonize, denigrate, and condemn your experience. I have been a member of the Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) since 1999. If you asked my fellow MTRCC members about my experience, or for that matter, if you asked them what I do 10+ hours each and every day, that is, do they know about the emails that I send out, few of them would know. Few of them would know a) that I worked for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which, at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $96,403-$125,325/year; b) that I worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5/12 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $81,071-$91,880/year; c) that during that time I became a Forensic Accountant, Certified Financial Services Auditor, Certified Fraud Examiner, Licensed CPA, Certified Internal Auditor, and CPA; or d) that during that time, I earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT, a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, and an MBA from Loyola. Few of them would know that I was a) the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, b) a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member 2003-2011, c) MTRCC webmaster 2008-2010 and 2000-2004, d) an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member 2003-2007, e) an American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member 2001-2004, or f) an American Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter Executive Committee member 1983-1996.)
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Ever-increasingly, Democrats hint/imply/argue/shout that the longer that your ancestors have been in America, the more reparations that you owe, and especially if you are a Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owner, draft avoider, and/or German American.

— The first time the U.S. considered drafting women — 75 years ago – Pamela D. Toler (DIERSEN: Were you draft bait? I was draft bait 1966-1971. Employers are extremely reluctant to hire, to retain, or to promote those who are draft bait. I graduated from NIU in August of 1970. During 1970 and 1971, potential employers did not believe that my application for a financial hardship draft deferment to help support my mother and brother would be approved. Consequently, in August of 1970, I took the only job that was offered me, a job that did not really require a college degree.)

My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes stress that I a) did not earn a job-related bachelor’s degree until I was 21 in 1970, b) did not earn job-related master’s degrees until I was 27, 31, and 48, c) did not earn job-related professional certifications until I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and d) did not earn a job-related professional license until I was 32.)

Democrats run the federal government. Starting when I was 25 years old in 1973, my Democrat IRS superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates stressed to my IRS superiors that I had failed to meet their up-or-out deadline for their employees like me who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran – I had failed to make GS-13 (currently $96,403/year) by age 25.

— Is Elite College Worth It? Maybe Not Wealthy parents who spend heavily to get their kids into top schools aren’t giving them as big an advantage as commonly thought, research shows – Greg Ip (DIERSEN: Those researchers should talk to Charles Bowsher. I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980. Bowsher took over GAO in 1981 and ran it until 1996. His top priority was hiring, retaining, and promoting young minorities and young females who were Ivy League graduates like he was, but who had a degree in public administration. Consequently, in GAO’s eyes, my 1970 bachelor’s degree in management from NIU WAS WORTHLESS, my 1976 MBA from Loyola WAS WORTHLESS, my 1980 master’s degree in accounting from DePaul WAS WORTHLESS, and my 1997 master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT WAS WORTHLESS.)

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Democrats and RINOs blame Republicans for the “racial wealth gap.” Democrats and RINOs want government to a) take income and assets away from Whites and b) give that income and those assets to minorities. Overwhelmingly, minorities are Democrats. Where did your income and assets come from? My income and assets came from working for the federal government for almost 30 years.
— Mary Mancini’s ‘racist state’ gaffe is a setback for Tennessee Democrats and a gift to Republicans – David Plazas (DIERSEN: Of course, Democrats and RINOs want the leaders of all the states, counties, townships, municipalities, wards, and precincts in America to say that their political jurisdictions are full of Republicans who are White supremacists, Nazis, KKK members, haters, racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things who should be gotten rid of once and for all.)
— Employment Decision Based On Employees’ Years Of Service Does Not Necessarily Violate ADEA (DIERSEN: During the 1980s and 1990s, the Democrats who ran GAO used Republican success in cutting GAO’s budget to justify getting rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13 (currently $96,403) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $113,920) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $134,000) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $164,200) by age 40.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The message of the Bryan decision is simple: if an employer can demonstrate legitimate cost savings measures, and the employer specifically targets those of a certain number of years of service as opposed to those of a certain age, the employer may be able to avoid ADEA liability for acts that seemingly affect ADEA protected older employees more than younger employees.)
