https://www.forbes.com/sites/johnmauldin/2019/12/02/americas-full-employment-hides-a-dirty-secret/#9c6e22d7c157
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Should just being “employed” make people/workers happy? On one level, any job is better than no job. But we also derive much of our identities and self-esteem from our work. If you aren’t happy with it, you’re probably not happy generally. Unhappy people can still vote and are often easy marks for shameless politicians to manipulate. Their spending patterns change, too. So it ends up affecting everyone and everything. Unhappy Employment There’s this plight of people who, while not necessarily poor, aren’t where they think they should be—and perhaps once were. This disappointment isn’t just in their minds; the economy really has changed. Yes, you can probably get a job if you are physically able, but the odds it will support you and a family, if you have one, are lower than they once were.)

Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and RINOs want Trump to dump individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

FORBES
— AARP Spikes Investigation Into Age Discrimination By The U.S. Government – Patricia Barnes (DIERSEN: According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, etc., a) the federal government has never engaged in any kind of political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, or retaliation and b) all the adverse actions that my Democrat Post Office, IRS, and GAO superiors took against me were justified because I am a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things who should be gotten rid of once and for all.) 
https://www.forbes.com/sites/patriciagbarnes/2019/12/02/the-aarp-spikes-investigation-into-age-discrimination-by-the-us-government/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The AARP has spiked the publication of an investigative story about systemic age discrimination in recruitment and hiring by the U.S. government. The 4,000-word story is one of two articles that the AARP commissioned for the January 2020 edition of the AARP Bulletin. The other story, said to be an overview of age discrimination in employment, is still slated for publication. The AARP, which has 38 million dues paying members, did not respond on Sunday to requests for comment by email and telephone. Why would the AARP, which claims to advocate for Americans aged 50+, jettison an important story about age discrimination in hiring by the U.S. government? A source close to the matter, who asked not to be identified, said senior officials at the AARP killed the story due to political considerations and to avoid risking the loss of federal grant funding. The AARP in 2017 was awarded $74.4 million for job training services from the U.S. Department of Labor and $9.6 million from the Internal Revenue Service to provide tax assistance to seniors. According to Axios, the AARP is one of the largest media companies in the country, earning more than $174 million annually in media-based advertising revenue. The AARP Bulletin has the 2nd-highest circulation in the country. The AARP and its nine subsidiaries earned an estimated $1.65 billion in annual revenue in 2018. Age Discrimination Little media attention has been paid to the federal government’s role in perpetuating age discrimination in the United States. Since 2012, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) has operated a program called the Pathways “Recent Graduates” Program that permits federal agencies to discriminate based on age in the recruitment and hiring of workers. The program was created by former President Barack Obama in 2010 through Executive Order #13562. It allows federal agencies to restrict applications for job vacancies to individuals who graduated from a qualified educational institution within the preceding two years. The program not only harms older workers by arbitrarily excluding them from federal jobs but it sends a message to the private sector that age discrimination is acceptable. Pursuant to a 2017 Freedom of Information Act request, the OPM said about 93 percent of applicants hired for 92,193 jobs under the Pathway “Recent Graduate” Program from 2012 to 2017 were under the age of 40. The Pathways “Recent Graduates” Program is a classic example of “disparate impact discrimination,” where a seemingly neutral policy has disproportionate and adverse impact on older workers. The OPM has said the program will continue until it is invalidated by a sitting president. So far President Trump has shown no inclination to halt the program. A source said the remaining AARP article refers briefly to age discrimination by the federal government. Political Headwinds The AARP increasingly finds itself in difficulty due to its conflicting roles as the self-proclaimed advocate for older Americans and as the leading purveyor of supplemental health insurance to older Americans who are Medicare recipients.)
