(FROM THE ARTICLE: ‘There was a line outside the door:’)
— Democrats ever-increasingly use Emmett Till to promote hatred against Republicans.
— Democrats say “How to find the courage to quit your job.” I should write a book about all the many adverse actions that my Democrat superiors in the federal government took against me to get me to quit. They would not have taken any of those adverse actions a) if I had been a Democrat, female, and/or veteran, b) if I had not complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination, and c) if I had not become an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 when I was 40 years old that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation.

REAL CLEAR EDUCATION
— Equity and the Race to the Bottom – Jack Miller (COMMENT: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes reject the equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) plank in the Republican Party platform. I should write a book about them. I would focus on those a) who have directly personally benefited from race and/or gender based preference giving and/or b) who want to directly personally benefit from race and/or gender based preference giving. For example, a) to get leadership positions in Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and/or Illinois Republican Party and/or b) to get support to run for government offices.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Over the last few years, the rallying cry of “woke” activists has become “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” (often abbreviated to DEI). There is little reason to object to such principles on the surface. After all, America was founded on the principle that all people are created equal. Unfortunately, the meaning of words can change over time. Rather than the Founders’ vision of equal opportunity for all, the use of the word “equity” today denotes equal outcomes for all. The implementation of this “equity agenda,” however well-intentioned, will lead to terrible consequences.)

The FBI is assisting the San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Office in the search for Oropeza. As the search continued, according to Capers, a cellphone that Oropeza reportedly used to be “in communication with officials” was found along with clothing that had been abandoned. Oropeza was said to have fled the area on foot or a bicycle. Officials used tracking dogs to find his scent but lost eventually lost track. Investigators believe Oropeza is armed and dangerous and considers him a threat to the community.)

— My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes reject the traditional marriage plank in the Republican Party platform. I should write a book about them and the adverse actions that they have taken against me. I would focus on those who have never been married, who have/had major marital problems, and/or who are divorced. I would focus on those who hypocritically attribute all my successes in life since 1978 to my being in a traditional marriage since 1978. I a) passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, b) transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980, c) completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, d) passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, e) became a licensed CPA in 1981, f) got promoted by GAO in 1986, f) earned four job-related professional certifications between 1990 and 1997, and g) earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997.

— With Biden as oldest US president in re-election bid, health experts call for ‘complete transparency’
— Democrats say “The IRS is hiring special agents prepared to use ‘deadly force’ if needed and is paying up to $95,000.” In 1971, when I was 22 years old, because I had not taken enough accounting courses, IRS did not offer me a Revenue Agent job. Instead, IRS offered me a Revenue Officer job. I forever regret a) not majoring in accounting at UIC 1966-1968 and at NIU 1969-1970 and b) not taking graduate accounting courses at DePaul 1972-1976. I had even less confidence in myself back then. I erroneously thought that I could never pass the CPA examination. But I did pass the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979 when I was 30 years old. But by then, because of my terrible demographics, I was far too old to have a successful career in accounting.
— Summer jobs are plentiful for teens who want to work. – Steve Rosen (COMMENT: What motivated you to take summer jobs? For me, it was to earn money a) to buy a used car in 1964 when I was 16 years old to get to/from work in Chicago Heights and classes at Crete-Monee High School, b) to buy a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in 1966 to get to/from jobs and classes at UIC, c) to pay for my UIC expenses 1966-1968, d) to buy a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 in 1967 to get to/from classes at UIC and my Park Forest Post Office job, d) to buy a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE in 1968 to get to/from classes at NIU and my Park Forest Post Office job, and e) to pay for my NIU expenses 1969-1970. I did yard work during the summers of 1962 and 1963. I delivered newspapers during the summers of 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965, and 1966. I washed dishes during the summer of 1965. I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline during the summer of 1966. I delivered mail during the summers of 1967, 1968, and 1969.)

— What does an analyst do? (COMMENT: I worked for GAO as an analyst for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $109,732-$142,650/year. While I worked for GAO, I a) completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, b) passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt, c) became a licensed CPA, d) became a Certified Fraud Examiner, Government Financial Manager, Financial Services Auditor, and Forensic Accountant, d) served for 13 years on the Executive Committee of the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter, and e) earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT. I worked for IRS as a Revenue Officer for almost 9 years before that, the last 5 1/2 years at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $92,279-$104,583/year. Much of what IRS Revenue Officers do is similar to what GAO Analysts do. They gather and analyze financial information to collect delinquent taxes. While I worked for IRS, I a) earned an MBA from Loyola and b) passed the CPA examination on my first attempt.)
(FROM THE POSTING: An analyst gathers, interprets, and uses complex data to develop actionable steps that will improve processes and optimize results. Day-to-day, it’s an analyst’s job to assess company and client needs, review robust information, and analyze it, looking for trends or areas for improvement. They must then deliver that information to stakeholders, and use it to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of a service, product, or system. Many industries hire analysts to monitor the results of their business functions or help develop new ones.)
— Communists decry that gun sales surge in the United States. The only reason why foreign countries have not yet succeeded in invading, infesting, conquering, and destroying the United States is that so many of its citizens own so many firearms and own so much ammunition. Ever-increasing, those who want to destroy America fight to outlaw AR-15s.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A growing number of Americans, especially women and people of color, are buying guns on a large scale nationwide, with many making their first gun purchases, CNN reported on Saturday.)
