https://www.heraldnews.com/news/20201030/i-dont-trust-them-young-fall-river-voters-look-beyond-traditional-media-to-inform-their-voting-decisions
(FROM THE ARTICLE: They rarely read or listen to actual news reports, but most of them are ready to cast their votes on Nov. 3. Six young adults, who live or work in the Fall River area, were asked if they could identify any news or media outlet that might have informed and influenced them, as to whether they’ll vote for President Donald Trump or Joe Biden on Election Day. Five of the six said they rely nearly exclusively on social media sites for political insight, while one says she favors listening to the British Broadcasting Corporation for the latest news. None of them said they pay much attention to American mainstream media. “I don’t trust them. There’s a lot of slant in the media,” said Robert Perry, who works for Epicurean Feast Cafes and manages the cafeteria at Bristol Community College’s Elsbree Street campus. Perry, 28, says he began to adopt a cynical view of national news media outlets even before Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016.)

TORONTO STOREYS
— Nearly a Quarter of Millennials Expect $100K from Family to Be Able to Purchase a Home – Kayla Gladysz (DIERSEN: I bought a new town home in University Park in 1972 when I was 24 years old. The down payment came from what I had earned and saved a) working for IRS in Harvey for the prior 9 months and in Chicago for 6 months before that and b) working for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights for the prior 18 months part-time and for 7 months before that full-time. That money also enabled me to a) buy a new Corvette in 1971 and b) pay tuition for graduate business courses at Loyola.)
https://torontostoreys.com/first-time-homebuyers-survey-bmo-millennials-family-support-mortgages/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to a new survey from BMO Bank of Montreal conducted by Pollara Strategic Insights, 56% of participants said they would seek help from family as they geared up to purchase their first home. Prospective buyers in Ontario were second-most likely to look for financial assistance, as 58% of respondents declared they would do so. British Columbia’s home-hunters took the top spot; there, 59% said they’d seek aid. What’s more, Millennials (an arguably debatable age range, but defined by Pew Research Center as those born between 1981 and 1996) were more likely to search for financial assistance than those defined as Gen X (individuals born between ’65 and ’80). While who is seeking support in making the big (literally and figurative) move is interesting, what might be even more intriguing is just how much these could-be-buyers are looking to obtain from external sources. Among those looking for financial aid, nearly 25% are seeking between $10,000 and $50,000; on average, first-time buyers are questing after $44,500 in assistance. But Millennials aren’t stopping there. According to the survey, 23%, or nearly a quarter of buyers in this age range, are expecting $100,000 or more in financial support as they prepare to purchase a home.)

Join literary historian Dr. Caroline Kisiel and sociologist Dr. Brian Miller for an historical overview of the state’s relationship to race.

But slavery had existed in the region for centuries, and its impact on American approaches to race affected counties in Southern Illinois for decades after incorporation. As Illinois grew as a state, this later affected suburbs outside Chicago, including Wheaton.)

— DuPage County Sheriff’s Office Launches Internal Probe After Staff Are Seen Dining Inside Restaurant, Against Governor’s Orders – Charlie De Mar
https://chicago.cbslocal.com/2020/10/27/dupage-county-sheriffs-indoor-dining-investigation/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: CBS 2 started asking questions, and it sparked an internal investigation within the DuPage County Sheriff’s Department. CBS 2’s Charlie De Mar has obtained the photos that have the department asking its own why they may have been eating inside a local restaurant – despite Gov. JB Pritzker’s orders not to. Photos taken in front of the Verdict Restaurant in Wheaton were sent to CBS 2 this week. They show a DuPage County Sheriff’s squad car, along with the department’s community service volunteer, parked in front of the restaurant. “We are right across from the courthouse, so the 99 percent of the people that are telling us to stay open work for the county,” said Verdict Restaurant owner Anna Sarantopoulos. Sarantopoulous chose to keep serving inside despite the governor’s order to stop, and she acknowledges the DuPage County Sheriff’s personnel sat inside this week. The department is only about a mile from the restaurant. “I can’t babysit a law enforcement officer. Do you know what I mean?” Sarantopoulos said. “They came in to support the Verdict. You know what I mean? I’m not the one to say, ‘Oh I can serve everybody else in the community but I can’t serve you.’ That’s not my place.” Late Monday, Sarantopoulous received a non-compliance notice from the DuPage County Health Department. She was threatened with a misdemeanor if the struggling restaurant continues to serve inside. “Our question is why us and not all the other the surrounding restaurants in the area?” Sarantopoulos said. “We’re trying to keep our staff. We’re trying to keep all our employees. We’re trying to pay the rent.” The DuPage County Sheriff’s Department said after we asked about the photos, an internal investigation started. “They have a boss. They have their own bosses. If the bosses wanted to tell them, ‘Do not go into any of the local restaurants,’ then they should have,” Sarantopoulos said. “Their boss should have reiterated and said, ‘Hey guys, be careful where you go eat.’ But not me. Not my place.” The DuPage County Health Department said they have contacted 13 restaurants in the area for indoor dining complaints.)

— Official On Why He Resigned From Federal Salary Council (DIERSEN: My Democrat superiors in the federal government demanded “political loyalty.” They got rid of their employees who were not Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13 (currently $101,176) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $119,559) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $140,634) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $170,800) by age 40. The planks in the Democrat Party platform that they demanded the most loyalty to were the ones that called for the federal government to give preference to its employees who were Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or veteran.)
https://www.nprillinois.org/post/official-why-he-resigned-federal-salary-council#stream/0
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The federal government here in Washington and around the country is run by civil servants – people who provide consistency, deep expertise, even as administrations change. The idea is that politicians and their political appointees may come and go, but thousands of lawyers and scientists and other specialists – they stay put. Well, a new executive order issued by President Trump puts tens of thousands of those jobs at risk, prompting our next guest to resign in protest, writing that Trump’s order is, quote, “nothing more than a smokescreen for what is clearly an attempt to require the political loyalty of those who advise the president or, failing that, to enable their removal with little, if any, due process,” end quote. Those are the words of Ron Sanders. He resigned yesterday as chair of the Federal Salary Council, and he joins us now.)

https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2020/10/top-down-white-penitence-is-shaking-up-and-roiling-the-american-workplace.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A white physician working in Raleigh, North Carolina, says he has participated in multiple diversity training exercises—including two in the last two years—without a fuss. But he was taken aback when his employer, Duke University Health System, said this summer it will roll out a comprehensive strategy to purge the last vestiges of racism from the workplace. The way it looks to him, Duke basically wants him to admit he’s a racist and repent. Like a growing number of organizations around the country responding to the death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement, Duke is adopting anti-racist advocacy as an organizational mission. That mission doesn’t mention time-honored workplace goals like color-blindness, meritocracy, or equal opportunity; instead, its target is the so-called complicity of America and its citizens in “structural racism,” “oppression,” and denialism.)

LOS ANGELES TIMES
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: What do you say to those who blame “Republican leaders” for the success that Democrats have had in destroying America’s cities? My ancestors on my father’s side immigrated from what is now Germany to Chicago in 1844. They worked in a brick factory for 10 years and then homesteaded a farm in Crete.
https://www.latimes.com/opinion/story/2020-10-27/column-why-do-republican-leaders-hate-cities
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Stadtluft macht frei” — “city air makes you free” — is a German phrase dating back to the Middle Ages. Legally, it described a rule that if a serf lived in a city for a year and a day, his feudal master could no longer claim him. But the term came to mean more than simply a way of escaping feudal bondage. Cities have long been where the poor and the enterprising go to find opportunity and prosperity, to sculpt their lives amid the economic dynamism that conservatives are supposed to celebrate. Cities are where most immigrants go to pursue the American dream. And it’s not just immigrants from other countries. A good rule of thumb for determining whether a state is trending “red” or “blue” is to look and see if young people are moving in or out.)

Don Beyer, D-Va. “His father-in-law gave him the position he is failing at miserably, with deadly consequences. We will remember his casual racism.” “Jared Kushner is the face of white privilege and nepotism. He doesn’t want to change our racist, broken system because he benefits from it. He’s the last person that should be lecturing the Black community on the value of ‘hard work,'” said Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif.)

ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY
— DuPage County Clerk Acknowledges Issues With Voting Machines, Commits to Remedial Measures to Ensure Voters Accurately Informed, Not Misled
https://illinois.gop/category/news/
(FROM THE PRESS RELEASE: Following calls by voters and Republican Party officials, DuPage County Clerk Jean Kaczmarek is acknowledging an issue with DuPage County voting machines and has committed to several remedial measures requested by the ILGOP and others. Several voters reported that while reading the questions on the screen of the electronic voting machines at early voting locations in DuPage County, after 10 seconds, the machine would automatically highlight the candidate or question that occupied the first ballot position, which this year are the Democratic Party candidates. The technical issue is related to how the County’s voting machines comply with the ADA. “While all counties must adhere to ADA requirements while conducting their elections, we have not seen this occur in any other county in the State, where a candidate’s name would be automatically highlighted, as they were in DuPage,” said ILGOP Chairman Tim Schneider. “We brought these issues to the Clerk and appreciate the Clerk’s office taking these issues seriously.” The DuPage County Clerk has committed to place signage at each Early Voting site, to provide a hand out to each voter, and to place explanatory signage on each electronic voting machine used in Early Voting in DuPage County. While a technological fix is unavailable during the Early Voting period, the Clerk has committed to investigate whether a technological fix may address the issue for Election Day voting. Said Schneider, “We appreciate the Clerk taking these remedial measures to help avoid any voter confusion on these machines. It is obviously of the utmost importance that all voters have the chance to make an informed choice at the polls.”)

In my defense, I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32. I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981. I served on the Executive Committee of the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter 1983-1996. In Diersen v.

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— Northern Illinois is a different story, Murphy acknowledges, saying GOP candidates there “are in their toughest fight” trying to dance around supporting an unpopular president (at least in Illinois) while sticking to their Republican values. It’s a delicate dance. Local Republicans are leery of rejecting Trump outright, for fear of alienating GOP voters. Instead they appeal to suburban voters’ independent streak — reminding them that it’s OK to vote one way at the top of the ticket and Republican down below. Republican state Rep. Grant Wehrli is in the fight of his political life in the 41st House District partly because he has refused to endorse Trump. Meanwhile, Democrats have poured money into challenger Janet Yang Rohr’s race, making it one of the most competitive and expensive statehouse races this cycle. . .Republican Senate candidate Mark Curran is taking his campaign to the streets — literally. He’s “walking for positive change.” Today, he’ll walk from Lake Michigan to Oak Park, along Madison Avenue. Wednesday, he plans to walk from Lake Cook Road and to Chicago along Milwaukee Avenue. And Friday, he’s walking from Howard to Beverly along Western Avenue. – Shia Kapos

They used those cuts to get rid of GAO’s employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13 (currently $101,176) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $119,559) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $140,634) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $170,800) by age 40. Extremely few GAO employees made the aforesaid promotion deadlines. To get rid of me, they forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, 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 a $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

COEUR D’ALENE PRESS
— More info always good for voters – BRENT REGAN (DIERSEN: Questions to ask candidates: If elected, would you encourage or discourage the following: reparations, BLM, LGBTQ, dependency on government, dependency on charity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, more gun controls, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and/or age discrimination?)
https://cdapress.com/news/2020/oct/24/c1-my-turn-regan/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: To make an informed decision at the ballot box in local government elections, the voter must make an additional effort to determine the candidates’ suitability for a particular office. It has been argued that in these local government elections, political parties should stand down and not actively promote any candidate on the basis of party affiliation alone. Unfortunately this is not the case. Idaho Democrat Party Chair Evangeline Beechler said during a recorded panel discussion: “When you get into non-partisan politics, right, you can kind of hide … so a lot of times we can get a lot of progressive liberals in those city council seats.” “Hide?” What are they trying to hide? In contrast, the Republican Party believes in transparency. Our Platform clearly describes our positions on public policy and our candidates are proud to identify their party affiliation. Our Kootenai County Republican Central Committee (KCRCC) is comprised of nearly 70 Precinct Committeemen from every part of our county. Each PC serves about 1,500 registered voters. An important part of the KCRCC’s mission is to assist the voters in evaluating the candidates by providing literature, forums, festivals and other resources. Precinct committeemen frequently field inquiries about candidates. In order to be consistent and transparent, our committee tasked our Elections Standing Committee with developing a questionnaire for all candidates, regardless of party. Since the “non-partisan” races do not use party affiliation, it is reasonable to inquire directly about the candidate’s positions on various policies and the candidates should be forthcoming with their views so that the voter can make an informed decision. To accomplish this, the Elections Committee developed a questionnaire which was then forwarded to the candidates. The Elections Committee compiled the results and presented their report to the KCRCC. The candidates also were given the opportunity to present themselves directly to the KCRCC and answer questions. Finally, the KCRCC voted on the candidates and issues they would recommend to the voters. In the interest of transparency, the metrics of the evaluation were posted on our website, kootenaigop.org, so that anyone could see who the KCRCC recommends and why they are recommended. This system is neither original nor unique as many organizations evaluate candidates to uncover information that would be of interest to their members. It is reasonable that the KCRCC would seek answers from candidates on topics that would be of interest to Kootenai County voters. In Kootenai County, the Republican Party has consistently offered quality candidates that are attractive to the majority of voters. Our volunteer Precinct Committeemen are active in their communities and represent all parts of Kootenai County, from city to country and from farm to factory. Committeemen work tirelessly to advance the political debate and to help inform the voters. I am immensely proud of these dedicated volunteers and humbled that they have chosen me to be their Chairman. You are invited to visit our website, kootenaigop.org , for additional information.)

https://wdet.org/posts/2020/06/10/89705-angry-venting-is-not-the-answer-says-aggression-expert/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In response to feeling threatened – whether the threat is real or imagined – Bushman says that people often resort to displaced aggression when either the target that provoked them is not available or they fear retaliation from that target. But, unlike Sigmund Freud’s concept of venting as a positive tool that improves an individual’s psychological state, Bushman says that venting is actually one of the worse options to defuse the feeling of anger and aggression.)

https://inews.co.uk/opinion/masked-unmasked-violence-new-york-regulations-psychology-719210

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Displaced aggression now latches on to the “misbehaving other”. This latching on is guided by an ideological dualism between libertarians, who think we should let survival of the fittest run its course in a bid for herd immunity, and paternalists who seeks to lock us all down in our homes. Never mind that this either/or logic ignores the “middle way” of testing, tracing and targeted isolation. This ideological dualism latches on to the identity markers of us and them, and directs the anger on to the member who is misbehaving and needs to be corrected, and if words fail, with force.)
