What plan did you have when you graduated from high school? I had an acceptance letter from UIC when I graduated from Crete-Monee High School in 1966. However, many, if not most, if not virtually everyone viewed me as not being “college material.” Neither of my parents had attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. I spent my junior and senior years and the summer in between washing dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights.)

Sessions, an Eagle Scout, was noticeably absent on a West Virginia stage as Trump spoke to a Boy Scout jamboree. – JOSH DAWSEY, ELIANA JOHNSON, NAHAL TOOSI and DANIEL LIPPMAN  (DIERSEN: In what ways have your critics/opponents succeeded in shaming you?  My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take an $18,847 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.  My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974.  My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.  Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs ended my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship in 2012, my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership in 2011, my service as a Milton Township Republican Central Committee webmaster in 2010 and 2004, my Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee membership in 2007, and my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board membership in 2004.

— JULY 25: In 1978, the world’s first “test-tube” baby, Louise Brown, was born in Oldham, England.  My wife and I were married on April 1, 1978. Because we gave up trying to have children without trying the test tube baby procedure, because we did not adopt, and because we did not become foster parents, my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates demonized, denigrated, and condemned me. They compared and contrasted me adversely with one of my Democrat female coworkers who did not abort her child who had Down Syndrome. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, a minority, a female, or a veteran.)

— It’s OK to Party When You Turn 60  More people are celebrating the age rather than lamenting getting older – Clare Ansberry  (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes promote age discrimination. They hint/imply/argue/shout that if you are a non-veteran White male federal employee, you are an unmitigated disgusting loser if you do not make GS-13 (currently $94,610) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $111,801) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $131,508) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $161,900) by age 40. They stress that I did not make GS-13 until I was 38 and that I was never promoted beyond that.  They stress a) that my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take an $18,847 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980; b) that my Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974; and c) that my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

They hint/imply/argue/shout that my wife and I have the “ability to pay” higher taxes because I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth and I have always been privileged, because I avoided the draft, because the federal government grossly overpaid me, because my wife and I gave up trying to have children, we did not adopt, and we did not become foster parents, and because my federal retirement benefits are much too generous. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes side with Madigan.)

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/449785/smuggling-deaths-what-blame
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Without E-Verify and worksite enforcement, we send the message that hiring illegal aliens is okay. Without prosecution of immigration-related Social Security fraud and tax fraud we send the message that lying and cheating is okay. Without tracking the departure of temporary visitors, and following up on those who overstay, we send the message that violating the terms of admission is okay. Foreigners hear that message loud and clear, which is why they’re so willing to pay criminals to smuggle them here.)

Since then, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have used that to viciously demonize me, to viciously denigrate me, and to condemn me. Further, they stress a) that my Democrat GAO superiors always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take an $18,847 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980; b) that my Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974; and c) that my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

My $50,856/year pension is only 41% of the $122,991 that I earned in 1997 in today’s dollars.  I went on vacations in 1969, 1970, 1971, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977.  My wife and I went on many vacations, typically four each year, 1978-1992 in connection with her business trips to luxury resorts all across America.  Of course, my Democrat IRS and GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were beyond furious about that.)

http://www.wsiltv.com/story/35952041/a-vacant-white-house-job-first-pet
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Politically ambitious pups and kittens: Put your resumes aside. The job of first pet – an enviable White House gig with luxurious live-in privileges, after-hours access to the president and guaranteed positive press coverage – is not currently available. That’s because President Donald Trump is not looking for a fluffy sidekick at the moment. Asked about plans for a four-legged addition to the White House, Stephanie Grisham, a spokeswoman for Melania Trump, said in a statement: “The first family is still getting settled so there are no plans at this time.” If Trump stays pet-free, he will be breaking with a long held tradition of presidential pet ownership.)

For my first 6 years with GAO and for my last 9 years, they succeeded in keeping me off audits of IRS. They did not promote me to GA-13 Step 1, $94,610 in today’s dollars, until 1986 and they never promoted me beyond that. They would not have done the aforesaid if I had been a Democrat, a minority, a female, or a veteran.)

They would demonize, denigrate, and condemn the fact that I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979 and that I passed the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) examination on my first attempt in 1981. They would stress that I took CPA and CIA examination review courses and that others got higher scores on the examinations than I did. They would demonize, denigrate, and condemn the fact that I became a licensed CPA in 1981, a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) in 1990, a Certified Government Financial Manager (CGFM) in 1994, a Certified Financial Services Auditor (CFSA) in 1996, and a Forensic Accountant (FA) in 1997.  They would stress that became a CFE, CGFM, CFSA, and FA by grand fathering and not by passing an examination.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Their goal is to increase the proportion of adults in Illinois with high-quality degrees and credentials to 60 percent by 2025. The rate stood at 40.8 percent when the goal was set in 2008 and rose to 49.6 percent by 2014, according to the Illinois Board of Higher Education.)

LINCOLN JOURNAL STAR
— DREAM Act divisive, elitist – RUBEN NAVARRETTE JR. (DIERSEN: From what I see, to curry favor with Democrats, employers want to gloat that they hire illegals, and that to make way for them, they do not hire citizens of America and that they get rid of citizens of America.)
http://journalstar.com/opinion/columnists/ruben-navarrette-dream-act-divisive-elitist/article_58cdae0d-39bb-588f-af15-c17ff32892f2.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: What bothered her was the insistence on going to college. What about those kids who go to vocational school or go straight to work? They didn’t deserve legal status? Someone in Washington was playing God again, deciding who stayed and who went according to a narrow definition of positive behavior. Why stop at attending college? Why not demand that beneficiaries of the DREAM Act not accept any public assistance, or abstain from smoking, or never fall into debt or not be unemployed for more than six months at any point in their lives? The new bill from Graham and Durbin is a slight improvement because it covers those who “work lawfully for at least three years.” But it also has a new requirement that recipients speak English and know U.S. history. Great idea. But shouldn’t we start by demanding those things from native-born U.S. citizens? These moral judgments are all subjective and awfully condescending. They’re all about what Graham, Durbin, and the other senators who will eventually support their bill require to make them feel comfortable with overlooking the fact that these young people are in the country illegally. Welcome to this week’s episode of the game show: “Good Immigrant, Bad Immigrant.” If Graham and Durbin want to make themselves useful in the immigration debate, they should stop treating immigrants like they’re some kind of social science experiment. Instead, they should draft a bill that would eventually legalize most of the 11 million people who are in the country illegally — whether or not they went to college or speak English. It’s no wonder that so many DREAMers experience a version of “survivor’s guilt” because they were tossed a life preserver while their parents and siblings are left to drown. All this talk about how the Trump administration is dividing families. You know what really divides families? The DREAM Act.)

DUPAGE COUNTY REPUBLICAN CENTRAL COMMITTEE
— John Curran appointed to State Senate  County Board Vice Chairman picked as Radogno replacement
https://www.facebook.com/DuPageGOP
(FROM THE ANNOUNCEMENT: Downers Grove, Ill. — The Republican 41st Senate District Selection Committee announced today the appointment of John Curran to the Office of State Senator for the 41st Senate District of Illinois. “John Curran will be an excellent State Senator for the 41st District,” said DuPage County GOP Chairman Brian Krajewski. “As the Vice Chairman of the DuPage County Board, John is a strong advocate for fiscal restraint and good government reforms, has deep roots in the community, and knows the pressing issues that southwest suburban residents face.” After interviewing about a dozen candidates, the committee members agreed that Curran is the most qualified person to serve the remainder of Christine Radogno’s term. “We interviewed many outstanding candidates who applied to fill this vacancy,” said Will County GOP Chairman Kathy Havel. “John’s record in support of respectful, responsible, representative government and his extraordinary commitment to constituent service was clear.” Since 2008, Curran has served the 3rd District of the DuPage County Board, where he led the effort to ban the end-of-career pension enhancements that is projected to save taxpayers $28 million. During his public service, he has pushed for transportation infrastructure development and cost-saving public employee reforms. For his professional career, he is a Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney focusing on employment and labor litigation. He also has municipal experience as a former trustee for the Village of Woodridge and is a current resident of Downers Grove. The 41st Senate District is in Cook, DuPage, and Will Counties. The Selection Committee consisted of Chairman Krajewski, Chairwoman Havel, Lyons Township GOP Committeewoman Christine Cook, and Lemont Township GOP Committeeman Howie Ludwig. Also present were Downers Grove Township GOP Chairman Bob Grogan, Lisle Township GOP Chairman Jay Fisher, and Homer Township GOP Chairman Brian Burian.)

During my last 4 years at GAO 1993-1997, I reported directly to a GS-15 Step 10 (currently $161,900). Most, if not virtually all of my GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates DID NOT want to work for her or work with her because she was very demanding, female, younger, Jewish, and wealthy. She had an MBA from the University of Chicago and had passed the CPA examination on her first attempt. To turn her against me, my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates stressed to her that I was conservative (she was liberal), Republican (she was Democrat), I was 100% German national origin (she was 100% Russian national origin), I was baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran (she was Jewish), and that my ancestors had been in America since the 1840s (her ancestors were recent immigrants).)

That part-time income helped me a) help support my mother and brother, b) pay for tuition and books for graduate business classes at Loyola, c) pay off my 1972 Corvette car loan, and d) have a down payment to buy a new town home in University Park in September of 1972.)

— Hits on federal retirement advance as bill is introduced to fire feds for ‘no cause at all’ – Joe Davidson (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always promoted patronage. Because I have always been a Republican, were it not for federal civil service protections, a) the Post Office would NOT have hired me in 1966 or let me work there for almost 3 years, b) IRS would NOT have hired me in 1971 or let me work there for almost 9 years, c) IRS would NOT have promoted me in 1972, 1973, or 1974, d) GAO would NOT have hired me in 1980 or let me work there for almost 18 years, and e) GAO would NOT have promoted me in 1986.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Future federal employees could lose their jobs much more easily under legislation introduced by Rep. Todd Rokita (R-Ind.). He wants all new feds to be considered at-will employees, meaning they “may be removed/suspended without notice or right to appeal for good cause, bad cause, or no cause at all,” according to a summary of the legislation. This represents no understanding that civil service protections are designed to protect not just staffers, but also the public from a government bureaucracy riven with political favoritism, as was the case under the spoils system. Even members of Congress eager to fire feds faster must know that this drastic proposal runs afoul of a basic and long-standing principle that says government staffers should be protected from willy-nilly punishment by political operatives. While Rokita’s plan demonstrates the extremes to which the fire-feds-faster crowd will go, presumably, but perhaps not assuredly, there are enough people in Congress who know better. I doubt his legislation will fly. . .Not all Republicans want to punish feds. Nine GOP House members signed a letter in June opposing Trump’s proposal, because it would renege on the retirement promised to feds when they joined the government. “Congress and the administration cannot balance the federal budget on the backs of our federal workers,” said one of the letter signers, Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.), after the House plan was released Tuesday. “Many of our federal employees work at the CIA, Pentagon, FBI, law enforcement, homeland security and intelligence agencies.  They and our federal workforce are dedicated hard-working professionals who work day and night to protect our homeland and national security, cure diseases, and provide services that help the American people.”)
