We pay about $6,000/year for about $24,000/year worth of insurance.) 
https://chicago.suntimes.com/news/lightfoot-55-percent-subsidy-health-care-subsity-city-retirees-medicare/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But retirees’ attorney Clint Krislov argued that an even more desperate financial crunch is impacting 10,000 retirees who started working for the city prior to April 1, 1986 and, therefore, are not eligible for Medicare. “People are being charged $2,000 individually a month, $4,000 for a couple, almost $6,000 for a family. … That’s a lot of money, even for somebody with a $100,000 pension,” Krislov said. “These people don’t deserve this. Do the right thing by these people. Provide them the coverage that they were promised.”)DAILY HERALD

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/why-older-workers-are-ideal-employees-2019-04-15
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ageism is apparent in the workforce and the hiring process. Legislators are combating age discrimination, including a recent proposal called the Protecting Older Workers Against Discrimination Act, and companies are under fire for certain hiring practices, such as targeting younger applicants through social media. Older workers are stereotyped as lacking a strong work ethic, counting down the days to retirement and a disinterest in learning new skills to stay competitive in the workforce, and they also struggle with negative comments about their age from colleagues or are overlooked for promotions.)DAILY BEAST

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Pritzker promotes hatred of Trump by saying “The president is a xenophobe and a racist.”
https://www.northernpublicradio.org/post/pritzker-tells-journalists-we-need-you
(FROM THE ARTICLE: During his address, the governor also doubled down on his commitment to protect undocumented immigrants in Illinois. On Friday, President Trump said his administration is “strongly looking at” releasing thousands of detained migrants into so-called sanctuary cities. But Pritzker’s calling his bluff. “The president is a xenophobe and a racist…So when he makes threats like this, they’re upon that history,” Pritzker said. “The fact is we’re not going to ship 11 or 12 million people out of the country, no matter what Donald Trump says. I’m not going to let that happen in Illinois. It’s not going to happen in the United States.” He said Illinois will remain open to immigrants, despite threats from the White House.)

https://www.northernpublicradio.org/post/pritzker-tells-journalists-we-need-you
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Governor J.B. Pritzker held his largest press conference over the weekend – and he’s promising media transparency under his administration. Speaking before more than a hundred journalists at the Illinois News Broadcasters Association’s annual spring conference in Normal, Pritzker said he’s committed to helping Illinois media tell the stories that matter. Pritzker said mutual respect between journalists and elected officials is critical in the era of “fake news.” “If we want our democracy to thrive, we must have a first amendment that thrives,” Pritzker said. “Those with political power must be extremely careful that when we disagree with what’s being said, we nevertheless fight for your right to get the information out.” Illinois Public Media reporters questioned Pritzker about the lack of cooperation from some state departments, namely the Illinois Department of Corrections and Department of Human Services. Pritzker said he’s still hiring new staff after the Rauner administration – and that he’ll step in when government officials are unresponsive.)ILLINOIS FAMILY ACTION

Of course, sanctuary cites would have to require all their residents to speak, read, and write Spanish. Democrats in sanctuary cities want illegals to help Democrats get rid of Republicans once and for all. Will Democrats let Republicans stay in sanctuary cities a) if they give money to Democrats, b) if they learn to speak, read, and write Spanish, and/or b) if they give their jobs to illegals?)

What would the elected officials in your municipality, in your township, and/or in your county say if they were asked if they would allow your municipality, your township, and/or your county to accept illegals, and if so how many? FIRST, ELECTED OFFICIALS OF MUNICIPALITIES, TOWNSHIPS, AND COUNTIES HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO RIGHT TO ALLOW THEIR MUNICIPALITIES, TOWNSHIPS, OR COUNTIES TO ACCEPT ILLEGALS. I would sue any Wheaton, Milton Township, and/or DuPage County elected official who voted for Wheaton, Milton Township, and/or DuPage County to accept illegals. Of course, Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs on city councils like Wheaton, township boards like Milton, and on county boards like DuPage have every right to try and get referendums passed to accept illegals.) 
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/04/remember_murietta_dumping_unvetted_migrants_into_the_cities_of_political_foes_was_done_by_obama_first.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Back in 2014, when the migrant surge of that year brought tens of thousands of “unaccompanied children” and “moms and kids,” into the Rio Grande Valley, overwhelming the Texas processing facilities, President Obama inexplicably targeted small and mid-sized cities (same as the Trump officials’ emails) as their next destination of choice. And instead of talking about it, they really did try to bus the unvetted migrants into small cities such as Murietta, California; Yuma, Arizona; and a conservative area of New Mexico, bringing crime, disease, and a high need for social services, without consulting those communities. The residents protested, and the Obama administration declared them ‘racist’ in a bid to scare them into line. I was on the ground at Murietta during those protests when I was an editorial writer at Investor’s Business Daily, and I spoke to the citizens of that city, who were not only far from racist, but actually multiracial themselves. They told me this: Asked why the rebellion was centered in Murrieta and not elsewhere, the residents all had one answer: they were Reagan Country, and it was on their soil that the Reagan revolution was lit in 1978.)

— Tom Arnold: My Trump Addiction Is Destroying My Career and I Don’t Care The president’s most unlikely foe is angry, vulnerable, and very busy. – Davis Richardson (DIERSEN: What did you do that destroyed your career? I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years. I avoided the draft. I failed/refused to become a Democrat. I failed/refused to help my superiors get rid of their employees because they were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran and had not made GS-13 (currently $98,198) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $116,040) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $136,495) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $165,500) by age 40. The aforesaid is called “up-or-out.” I complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. In 1980, when I was 40 years old, I became an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged my employer with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. What did you do that destroyed your political career? I failed/refused to become a RINO. I failed/refused to become an operative or a dupe for those who have the most religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois.

Ever-increasingly, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois hint/imply/argue/shout that my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old a) because I am dumb, stupid, incompetent, inept, unskilled, inexpert, amateurish, unprofessional, lacking ability, bungling, blundering, clumsy, unproficient, inadequate, substandard, inferior, ineffective, deficient, inefficient, ineffectual, no good, not good enough, wanting, lacking, leaving much to be desired, incapable, unfitted, unfit, unsuitable, unqualified, pathetic, cack-handed, ham-fisted, not up to it, a dead loss, not up to scratch, not up to snuff, and even worse things and b) because I am a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. Better yet, I should sue them.)
https://japantoday.com/category/national/retiring-late-as-pensions-underwhelm-more-japanese-opt-to-prolong-employment

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Yasuhiro Furuse could have retired two years ago, but he wasn’t entirely happy with his pension income and had to put any such thoughts to bed. It was just as well for Furuse’s employer Orix Corp, a financial services group, which would have struggled to find a replacement, with Japan’s jobless rate at 26-year lows. This win-win arrangement, increasingly common in Japan, highlights a structural and policy challenge facing the world’s third-biggest economy. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s government is considering raising the retirement age to 70 or 75 from 65 now, to ease pension burdens as well as a labor crunch. But a more durable longer term solution, analysts say, is for Japan to relax its strict controls on foreign workers. “I have no choice but to work,” said Furuse, 62, a senior adviser at Orix’s corporate business headquarters. “I appreciate that I could keep working, which makes me better off than living on pension and savings. Besides, I want to do something to contribute to society.” Japan’s population is among the oldest on the planet and has one of the longest lifespans, putting pressure on its pension system. The old-age dependency ratio — or the numbers of elderly against those of working age — is the highest in the OECD. The situation is being compounded by Japan’s deep-seated reluctance to fully open its gates to foreign workers, leaving many companies to rely on the old guard to overcome severe labour shortages.)

https://codcourier.org/11299/opinion/americas-fake-news-epidemic-we-need-credible-news-sources/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the era of the Internet, fake news is easily spread. It is because of today’s technology that we as consumers of media have the responsibility to seek out the most accurate, unbiased sources of news. Sources like Buzzfeed and Fox News are simply too biased to take for accurate news. These news outlets may be OK for a quick glance at what is happening in the world, but they shouldn’t be our go-to sources. I urge readers to make sure you are gathering information from reputable sources. I recommend The Associated Press, BBC and Reuters for world news, and the Daily Herald for local news. These media outlets tend to meet high journalistic standards while putting out minimal partisan bias in their stories. If we continue to allow ourselves to confuse biased, fake news for factual news, we risk the autonomy to make decisions based on our own morals. We cannot allow ourselves to be lied to by the fake news spread hazardously across the internet.)

Bruce Rauner (Republican) $36 million FOR:2014 (won) and 2018 (lost) gubernatorial campaigns 2. Jim Durkin (Republican) $11 million FOR:2016 (won, unopposed) and 2018 (won) Illinois House races 3.
