— Dead People Can’t Collect Fat Pensions – Rich Miller (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, everyone who is in line to get a pension or is getting a pension is demonized, denigrated, and condemned.

https://www.rcreader.com/commentary/dead-people-cant-collect-pensions
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The writer threatened mass assassinations for pretty much everyone who receives a state government pension, including survivors and heirs. To avoid this fate, the author demanded in the form letter that the pension actuarial tables be changed and the state’s constitution be amended to remove the pension protection clause before instituting a graduated income tax. The writer also demanded unspecified “cap$ and clawback$ for outrageous$ pension payout$” and local government consolidation. He or she also demanded the end of pension double-dipping and “playing salary games at career’s end to max out your take.”)

My critics/opponents have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I should pay reparations, that is, that I should pay the price of Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion.

EUREKA TIMES STANDARD
— On ‘Seeking: digital natives’ – ANGELA COPELAND (DIERSEN: How long have you had your email address? I have had [email protected] for more than 24 years, since January of 1995 when I was 46 years old. How long have you owned a computer system? I have owned a computer system since 1982 when I was 34 years old. While I worked for GAO during the 1990s, before GAO provided its staff with computer systems, I bought several computer systems and used them in my office. I published Milton Township Republican Central Committee’s (MTRCC) first website in 2000 and served as MTRCC’s webmaster 2000-2004 and 2008-2010. I published Milton Township’s first website in 2001 and served as its webmaster 2001-2003. I served as Illinois Center Right Coalition’s webmaster 2004-2006. I have been sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails since 2000 and publishing copies of them at www.gopillinois.com since 2005. I have been on Facebook since January of 2009.)
https://www.times-standard.com/2019/05/26/career-corner-seeking-digital-natives/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: This term makes sense at first. But, the definition of a digital native, according to Dictionary.com, is “a person born or brought up during the age of digital technology and therefore familiar with computers and the internet from an early age.” Those who are turning forty this year probably started to use the internet around 1995, when they were sophomores in high school — if they were lucky. That was in the time of the dial-up modem and America Online. Their parents were ahead of the game to have a home computer then. In all likelihood, they really began to use computers when they went to college. It should be noted that I’m omitting early Mac computers and things like Atari for the purposes of this column. I’m talking about the real-deal internet. Digital natives had the internet in elementary school or middle school. Wikipedia says digital natives “are often used to describe the digital gap in terms of the ability of technological use among people born from 1980 onward and those born before.” By this definition, a digital native would be 38 years old or younger today. Let that soak in. A job description that specifically requests that someone is 38 years old or less. Why does this happen? I don’t have the answer for you. I’d like to know this myself. I thought that the idea of a job posting was to hire someone with a certain skillset rather than a certain age. I also heard this rumor that discriminating on the basis of age when hiring is not allowed. In fact, I think there may be something called the Age Discrimination in Employment Act.)

BUSINESS NEWS DAILY
— How Can You Tell if a Job Candidate Is Lying About Their Credentials? – Adam C. Uzialko
https://www.businessnewsdaily.com/11314-background-check-candidate-credentials.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: When employers don’t want to conduct candidate verification themselves or feel it would be better handled by a professional third party, there are background check services. These companies are available to screen candidates, usually for a per-candidate fee, and provide background check reports for the employer’s review. Background checks generally review criminal history at the federal and state level, as well as verify past employment and educational attainment. “Manual verification of job candidates, especially in high-volume situations, may be impractical,” Chancey said. “For best results, employers should consider partnering with a reliable background screening vendor. Look for a vendor whose screening platform is easy to use and takes out the hassle of verifying multiple candidates, integrates with other HR systems such as the applicant tracking system, and whose capabilities can be customized to the needs of your organization.”)

The following harmed my career in the federal government: I did not become a veteran. I did not become a Democrat. I did not become a yes-man. I refused to help my Democrat superiors and supervisors 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. I complained about political affiliation discrimination. I complained about reverse discrimination. I complained about age discrimination. I complained about retaliation. In 1988, when I was 40 years old, I became an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged my superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation.)

According to pot pushers, just about everyone is a stoner already. Stoners, their operatives, and their dupes do everything that they can to destroy individuals like me, destroy organizations like TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, destroy companies, destroy governments, and destroy countries that do not promote pot.

AMERICAN PROSPECT
— Pelosi Must Not Run Congress Like Trump Ran His Businesses Congress doesn’t have the resources right now to take on Trump, and Democrats aren’t fighting to acquire them. – DANIEL SCHUMAN (FROM THE ARTICLE: Congress is a shadow of itself. What this means in terms of personnel, for example, is House committee staff fell by one-third from 1994 to 2016, from 1,947 people to 1,298. Government Accountability Office staff fell by one-third, from 4,572 to 2,989.)
https://prospect.org/article/pelosi-must-not-run-congress-trump-ran-his-businesses
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A quarter-century ago, Newt Gingrich set out to destroy Congress as a force for progress, slashing the House’s funding by 14 percent and eviscerating its support agencies, like the Office of Technology Assessment, which drafted reports on emerging scientific and technological issues. In the last decade, House Republicans literally decimated funding for the House. Overall funding for the legislative branch is down by $370 million in constant dollars over the last decade alone, and funding for committees over that time has dropped by 22 percent—from $432 million to $329 million in constant dollars. Congress is a shadow of itself. What this means in terms of personnel, for example, is House committee staff fell by one-third from 1994 to 2016, from 1,947 people to 1,298. Government Accountability Office staff fell by one-third, from 4,572 to 2,989; and the Congressional Research Service fell by one-quarter, from 835 to 609. This is colloquially known as the lobotomization of Congress. The average expertise of and resources available to the rump of remaining staff have dropped precipitously, and few in power have any real experience governing. As if you couldn’t tell. To sum up, Congress is in no shape to take on Trump.)

https://medium.com/trusting-news/whats-your-why-share-it-with-your-audience-to-sustain-your-future-a070669f317
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Why do we do it? Why do we work in a highly unstable career with no job security? Why do we cover stories so unimaginably terrible that sometimes all that’s left for us to do at the end of the day is cry? Why do we endure a high-pressure, fast-paced environment with little pay while at the same time dealing with a constant barrage of criticism from those we are trying to serve? (You’ve unfortunately probably heard some of this before: you’re a liberal rag; you’re in Politician X’s pocket; have you EVER even HEARD of a copy editor?) We do it because we care. We do it because our passion for our communities runs deep in our veins. We do it because we feel a responsibility to tell our neighbors’ stories, keep our cities safe and hold our governments accountable. We do it because we can’t imagine doing anything else. Historically, we haven’t been very good at telling the story of our why. But it’s one that is key to sustaining local journalism for years to come. As the news industry continues to face more layoffs, I’ve heard my colleagues ask, “So what can we do? How can we help ensure the future of our news organization?”)

— How the Rural-Urban Divide Became America’s Political Fault Line Such a conflict isn’t unique to the U.S., but the consequences are far-reaching here. – Emily Badger
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/21/upshot/america-political-divide-urban-rural.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the United States, where a party’s voters live matters immensely. That’s because most representatives are elected from single-member districts where the candidate with the most votes wins, as opposed to a system of proportional representation, as some democracies have. Democrats tend to be concentrated in cities and Republicans to be more spread out across suburbs and rural areas. The distribution of all of the precincts in the 2016 election shows that while many tilt heavily Democratic, fewer lean as far in the other direction. As a result, Democrats have overwhelming power to elect representatives in a relatively small number of districts — whether for state house seats, the State Senate or Congress — while Republicans have at least enough power to elect representatives in a larger number of districts. Republicans, in short, are more efficiently distributed in a system that rewards spreading voters across space. . .The median congressional district in America looks ideologically more Republican, Mr. Rodden finds (the median precinct in the chart also voted slightly Republican). And so Democrats have to find a way to win in those places, even as the progressive wing of the party is ascendant and lobbying for control of the party’s message. If Democrats hold on to some suburbs they recently flipped — a possibility as suburbia diversifies and as college-educated whites move toward the Democrats — Republicans could one day be as concentrated in rural areas as Democrats have been in cities. In that situation, one where Republicans pack their votes more tightly in rural America and the median suburban district becomes slightly Democratic, the urban party might actually start to benefit from geographic polarization. But there will still always be the Senate.)
