— Donald Trump paid $750 in US income taxes in 2016, 2017: NY Times – AP (DIERSEN: I worked for IRS for almost 9 years and I worked for GAO on audits of IRS for 3 years. Tax evasion is illegal. Tax avoidance is legal. What did you do to avoid paying higher federal taxes? Instead of renting, I bought the following and deducted mortgage interest and real estate taxes: a) a new town home in University Park in 1972, b) a studio condo in the Outer Drive East (ODE) building in downtown Chicago in 1974, and c) a one bedroom condo in the ODE building in 1976. My wife and I bought a home in Wheaton in 1978 and we had one built in Wheaton in 1984. Instead of spending my time and money on other things, I paid for and deducted tuition, fees, and books a) to earn a job-related MBA from Loyola on 1976, b) to pass the job-related CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, c) to earn a job-related master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, d) to pass the job-related Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and e) to earn a job-related master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997.)

Six of the aforesaid pieces had to be folded to fit inside the envelopes provided by the DuPage County Republican Central Committee. The envelopes had on them a) mailing labels provided by the DuPage County Election Division for each individual Republican or Independent voter and b) my return address label.)
https://www.reviewjournal.com/news/politics-and-government/las-vegas/nevada-legislator-uses-horses-to-get-out-his-message-in-las-vegas-2131003/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Nevada Assemblyman Edgar Flores canvassed in his east Las Vegas neighborhood on Saturday. Flores, who is running for re-election in Assembly District 28, kicked off a campaign literature drop Saturday morning with many supporters on horseback. The event, which included distribution of literature for his campaign and for the Biden-Harris campaign, was designed to promote the vote within Latino community, Flores noted in an email to the Review-Journal on Friday.)

NATIONAL LAW REVIEW
— Achieving Diversity and Inclusion within the Securities and Financial Management Industry and its Legal Partners (DIERSEN: Meeting Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion quotas, goals, and targets is a “zero sum game.” For every employee who is hired or promoted who is Democrat, minority, female, or younger, an employee who is Republican, White, male, or older is not hired or promoted. All my coworkers who IRS and GAO promoted over me were Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger.)
https://www.natlawreview.com/article/achieving-diversity-and-inclusion-within-securities-and-financial-management
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Accountability and measurement are necessary to achieve results. Marcham encouraged us to avoid barriers that we often throw up, and not to see diversity and inclusion results as a “zero sum game.” Instead tangible D&I results are a chance to grow both inclusively and financially – the well-known win‑win. Lewis wryly observed the financial services industry measures everything so there is no excuse not to measure our results on D&I.)

BUSINESS LEDGER
— Best Places to work in Illinois (DIERSEN: One would expect that employers that give lots of preference to their employees who are members of certain groups would be ranked higher by their employees who are members of those groups. Because the federal government gives preference to its employees who are Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or non-veteran, one would expect that those employees would rank the federal government very highly.)

DAILY SIGNAL
— The Left’s Moral Compass Isn’t Broken – Dennis Prager
https://www.dailysignal.com/2020/09/17/the-lefts-moral-compass-isnt-broken/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: All of my life, I have said that the left’s moral compass is broken. And all of my life, I was wrong. Why I was wrong explains both the left and the moral crisis we are in better than almost any other explanation. I was wrong because in order to have a broken moral compass, you need to have a moral compass to begin with. But the left doesn’t have one. This is not meant as an attack. It is a description of reality. The left regularly acknowledges that it doesn’t think in terms of good and evil. Most of us are so used to thinking in those terms—what we call “Judeo-Christian”—that it is very difficult for us to divide the world in any other way.)

USA TODAY
— Amy Coney Barrett: Talented judge, popular professor brings solid conservative credentials – Richard Wolf and Maureen Groppe (DIERSEN: How would Barrett have ruled in Diersen v. GAO? In Diersen v. GAO, the 7th Circuit ruled that employers can discriminate against their employees because they are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/09/26/who-amy-coney-barrett-talented-judge-conservative-credentials/3494471001/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: During her three years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, which includes Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin, Barrett has ruled in cases involving abortion, sexual assault, guns, race and immigration. Among them: . . Race: Barrett helped to block the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s effort to stop an employer from transferring Chicago-area employees based on their race or ethnicity. The agency had accused AutoZone of making the transfers to reflect area demographics. Three dissenting judges said the policy “deprived people … of employment opportunities at their preferred geographic location.” Age discrimination: Barrett ruled that the Age Discrimination in Employment Act does not apply when policies impact plaintiffs unintentionally. The ruling went against a 58-year-old job applicant who lost out to someone half his age when the company sought to hire a person with less than seven years’ experience.)

My Democrat IRS superiors 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.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The competitive environment, the up-or-out promotion schedule, and the sheer size of the company ensure a high rate of turnover. This means that Accenture jobs are frequently available, in a variety of roles as well as office locations. These jobs are posted at multiple forums, but you can be sure to find some at Glassdoor and Indeed.)

VANCOUVER SUN
— NDP, Liberal and Green parties have subtly different plans to keep people safe while campaigning – Lori Culbert (DIERSEN: Of course, ever-increasing, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes hint/imply/argue/shout that because of the pandemic and because of my terrible demographics (old, overweight, White, male, type-2 diabetic, Trump supporter, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owner, Protestant, 100% German American, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, and owner of six American nameplate cars and one SUV), I should NOT do anything to help elect candidates and b) I should resign as a Republican Precinct Committeeman. Nevertheless, yesterday, I finished hand-delivering door-to-door the following to all 150 homes in my precinct a) that had at least one Republican or Independent voter and b) that had no Democrat yard signs: joint candidate piece from the Milton Township Republican Organization, sample ballot, literature from the 14 Republican candidates on the ballot in my precinct who provided campaign literature, and my GOPUSA Illinois business card. Six of the aforesaid pieces had to be folded to fit inside the envelopes provided by the DuPage County Republican Central Committee. The envelopes had on them a) mailing labels provided by the DuPage County Election Division for each individual Republican or Independent voter and b) my return address label.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The three main parties supplied their safety plans to Postmedia, and there are obvious similarities around mask-wearing, social distancing, handwashing and staying home when sick. But there are also differences. At the NDP camp, workers from different parts of the campaign are “bubbled” and not allowed to interact with their fellow party workers. That is not only a drag for the Smith brothers, but for senior bus staffer Marie Della Mattia and her daughter, Emily, who works at NDP headquarters. The NDP says its rules are based on guidelines from WorkSafeBC and Henry’s office: At headquarters, staff work in small cohort teams that arrive and eat at different times while those on the bus sit in spread-out seats and hand sanitize after every stop. On Thursday, the party issued new protocols for journalists, which includes an online form that asks for symptoms and collects contact-tracing information. The Liberals’ safety plan includes many of those same elements, but also details minimizing the number of workers in campaign offices, prohibiting the public from entering the offices or requiring appointments, and using plastic or shower curtains barriers when physical distance cannot be maintained. The Liberals also have rules for canvassing, which includes limiting physical contact with doorbells and railings, hand-sanitizing between each house, never going into voters’ houses, and never petting their dogs and cats. Campaign material should be carried in a plastic bag, workers must “take every possible precaution to avoid sneezing” on it, and it should never be handed directly to a voter. Liberal events should have no more than 50 people, ideally be held outside, provide masks and sanitizer and, when possible, have assigned seating, the party says. In its safety material, the Green party acknowledges that “COVID-19 has created a situation where campaigning is going to look very different.” For starters, canvassers should wear gloves and, this year more than ever, respect a voter who isn’t interested. “Canvassers must understand that the public may not be comfortable with this type of activity at their place of residence. Team members will need to be polite, respectful and sensitive to people’s comfort levels,” the Green material says. Only team members in the same household bubble should travel in a car together. If additional people must be in the car, roll the windows down. In campaign offices, door handles, printers and sink taps must be cleaned several times a day, and Green party volunteers should avoid using common coffee pots, kettles or microwaves — which could make for some tired and hungry volunteers. Even when it comes to donations, the rules have changed. The Green party would prefer “contactless” transactions, presumably e-transfers, or old-fashioned cash can be dropped into a container with a slot on top.)

DUPAGE COUNTY ELECTION DIVISION
— DuPage County Early Voting off to great start – Hundreds vote in person on first day
https://www.dupageco.org/Election/Election_Commission_News/2020/63514/
(FROM THE PRESS RELEASE: The first day of Early Voting in DuPage County has gone smoothly, with hundreds of voters – some of whom lined up outside the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton before dawn – having cast their ballots by mid-afternoon. “We’re quite happy with how it’s gone today,” DuPage County Clerk Jean Kaczmarek said. “Though the line of voters snaked through the Fairgrounds parking lot today, people were patient, they practiced social distancing, and everyone – voters, pollworkers, and my staff – worked together to make this first day run smoothly.” At 8 a.m. the doors to the polling place at the Fairgrounds were opened and Kaczmarek announced, “the polls are open!” At the close of the day, 660 voters had exercised their right to vote at the Fairgrounds. The site is open 8 a.m. thru 4:30 p.m. weekdays through Oct. 16, and from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturdays through Oct. 17. Hours, as well as the number of Early Voting sites, expand on Oct. 19, when 18 sites all over the county will open to voters offering touchscreen voting. The current Fairgrounds site will offer paper ballots through Nov. 2. Plenty of PPE, including hand sanitizer, masks, and latex gloves, were available for voters. A professional cleaning crew wiped down surfaces throughout the day at the Fairgrounds voting site. “It’s great to see such enthusiasm by voters on the first day,” Kaczmarek said, “but we still have 39 days until Nov. 3, and you can vote on any of those days, either in-person or in the comfort of your home by mail ballot.” Thursday was also the day the Clerk’s Office began sending mail ballots to voters. Those ballots should start showing up in mailboxes of voters who’ve requested them soon. “If you’ve applied for a mail ballot, there’s no need to vote in person,” Kaczmarek said. “More than 159,000 DuPage County voters have already requested mail ballots, and my office will make sure each of those voters gets their ballot. Voters still have just over four weeks to request a mail ballot, but we recommend that if you plan to vote by mail, you apply for your ballot online as soon as possible. “This election may feel very different from any previous election – from the masks and plastic shields at the polling places to the disinformation coming from many quarters, but voting is still the same,” Kaczmarek said. “There are three ways to vote – by mail, in-person before Election Day, and in-person on Election Day. I urge voters to make the choice that is easiest and safest for them.”)

My Democrat IRS superiors 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 forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968. My aforesaid Democrat superiors would stress that the aforesaid adverse actions that they took against me directly benefited their employees who were poor, and especially their poor employees who were Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or veteran.)

— DuPage County: Voting In A Pandemic: Early Voting Begins In Most Of Illinois Thursday – Dana Kozlov
https://chicago.cbslocal.com/2020/09/23/voting-pandemic-early-voting-begins-illinois-thursday/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: This year’s presidential election is poised to be historic for many reasons, and Wednesday in counties all around Chicago, final preparations were underway for the start of early voting Thursday. DuPage County is working to make voters and election judges feel safe. The DuPage County Fairgrounds will be the county’s first and only polling place for early in-person voting. The county clerk moved early voting there for many reason, most significantly because of the size of the room and ability to keep doors wide open if needed. Less than 24 hours before DuPage County voters enter the doors election judges sat through training. This year in a pandemic that training contained a whole new set of rules and a whole new set of personal safety equipment. “Everything has been turned upside down and inside out,” said first term DuPage County Clerk Jean Kaczmarek. Kaczmarek said planning has been underway since the primary ended. She said $3.5 million in state and federal Cares Act money has been used to buy now needed items like shields, sanitizer, masks and new equipment to handle mail-in ballots. Kaczmarek also doubled election judges’ pay as an incentive. Early voting judges will now get $20 an hour. “We’re in pretty good shape with election judges. We’re always recruiting. It’s a move other county clerks have made, too, in hopes of avoiding a judge shortage. Melissa Nachman said it helped sway her, admitting she was concerned about her safety. “However, I felt that it was important. We need to have election judges just to make our elections work well, and I weighed the two things,” Nachman said. Safety is clearly a priority. Polling stations are six feet apart. Floor markers demand social distancing, and a mail-in drop box is near the door for those dropping of mail-in ballots. DuPage County has gotten 155,000 mail-in ballot applications. Statewide there have been almost 1.8 million. “That is an incredible number. The most we’ve ever had cast in vote by mail was just two years ago; 430,000 voted by mail,” said the Illinois State Board of Elections’ Matt Dietrich. Dietrich said at this rate half of the presidential votes could be cast before election day. He echoes what many election leaders say: the earlier the better. Early voting begins in all of Illinois except Cook County and the City of Chicago. That’s also when those requested mail-in ballots will begin to be sent out. Paper ballots begin Thursday, but touch screen voting begins Oct. 19 in DuPage County.)

https://www.npr.org/2020/09/22/915843471/trump-expands-ban-on-racial-sensitivity-training-to-federal-contractors
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Trump said on Twitter on Tuesday that he had expanded the ban on “efforts to indoctrinate government employees with divisive and harmful sex and race-based ideologies” to contractors doing business with the federal government and those receiving grant funds. “Americans should be taught to take PRIDE in our Great Country, and if you don’t there’s nothing in it for you!” he tweeted. Earlier this month, Trump announced efforts to promote “patriotic education” and railed against students learning about systemic racism. He signed an executive order that requires contracts to now include a provision that says contractors with the federal government will not have “workplace training that inculcates in its employees any form of race or sex stereotyping or any form of race or sex scapegoating” or face the cancellation of contracts. “Instructors and materials teaching that men and members of certain races, as well as our most venerable institutions, are inherently sexist and racist are appearing in workplace diversity trainings across the country, even in components of the Federal Government and among Federal contractors,” the order says. The trainings cited include references to white privilege and systemic racism.)
