— How much the US minimum wage was actually worth the year you were born
(DIERSEN: I worked for the minimum wage 1964-1966. The $1.25/hour that I earned then is worth $10.64/hour in today’s dollars. I washed dishes in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights part-time during my junior and senior years at Crete-Monee High School and full-time during the summer in between. With the money that I earned and saved, I bought a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint (a poor man’s GTO) in May of 1966 to commute to classes at UIC in the fall from my parents’ home in Crete.)

DAILY PRINCETONIAN
— Confronting Gerrymandering: The Power of Just Data – Collin Riggins
(DIERSEN: Only 157 in my precinct voted for Trump while 269 voted for Biden. LGBTQ-promoting churches are just north and just south of my precinct. My precinct’s polling place is the LGBTQ-promoting and BLM-promoting church just south of the precinct. About half the homes in my precinct are represented on Wheaton City Council by an LGBTQer whose wife is an LGBTQ activist. Ever-since the 2015 gerrymandering, my precinct contains the Wheaton Warrenville School District 200 Administration building, a public grade school, and a public middle school. My precinct has fewer middle-income voters, more lower-income voters, and more upper-income voters than many other precincts. My precinct has had more turn over (home sales teardowns) than many other precincts. From what I see, about 4 out 5 times when a home owned by Republicans is sold, it is bought by Democrats.)
https://www.dailyprincetonian.com/article/2021/04/gerrymandering-data-census-redistricting-just-data
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For example, Kmetz outlined a problem in the electoral system that affects communities nationwide: there is currently not a centralized database for election results on the precinct level. As a result, the impact that smaller communities have in elections is obscured. Kmetz stated that this “makes it difficult to determine how changing district lines could impact elections.” So, rather than taking very zoomed-out election results as they are, the Lab started a project called OpenPrecincts. Working with local organizations to ensure their use of data is collaborative, transparent, and just, OpenPrecincts is a database that offers precinct-level election results for all 50 states. That way, context can be attributed to data, which can help explain disparities in voter turnout, the prevalence of gerrymandering, and other areas for structural change.)

(DIERSEN: The more the following demographics that the subject of a statute had, the more that Democrats want to tear that statute down: conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owner, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or if he had ancestors who had been in America for a long time.)

Referendum organizers this week plan to observe the process to get a sense of how many mail-in ballots are coming in from Milton Township and whether there’s enough to make up the gap. State election officials on Wednesday reported up to 5,785 outstanding mail-in ballots countywide. County election officials are not expected to post additional vote counts until Friday.)

— Pritzker digs Chicago financial hole deeper by increasing city firefighter pensions – Ted Dabrowski and John Klingner
https://wirepoints.org/pritzker-digs-chicago-financial-hole-deeper-by-increasing-city-firefighter-pensions-wirepoints/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Gov. J.B. Pritzker dug Chicago’s financial hole deeper this week, signing a bill that increases the pension benefits for Chicago firefighters. That follows his expansion of the Chicago Teachers Union’s collective bargaining powers last week, sure to result in larger budget deficits and more chaos for the city’s school system. The new pension law grants all Chicago firefighter retirees a 3 percent annual compounded increase (COLA) to their pensions. Prior to the law, retired firefighters born after 1/1/1966 received only a 1.5 percent simple increase every year. Now, those 2,200 additional firefighters will get the 3 percent COLA. You have to wonder if none of Pritzker’s advisers told him that the Chicago firefighter plan is just 18 percent funded, among the worst funded plans in the country. Or that it and the rest of the city’s plans are running out of assets – the firefighter plan’s assets are less than four year’s worth of payouts. Well-funded plans across the nation have assets worth at least 20 years of future payouts.)

— FROM THE ARTICLE: The election leaves in limbo a project that is part of Beijing’s quest to increase its grip on the world’s rare earths—the raw materials necessary to make the batteries and magnets that power everything from cellphones and electric cars to wind turbines. Global demand for rare earths is forecast to soar, as countries push to meet their commitments under the Paris Climate Accord, which President Biden has decided to rejoin. China mines over 70% of the world’s rare earths and is responsible for 90% of the complex process to turn them into magnets, according to Adamas Intelligence, which provides research on minerals and metals. – Stacy Meichtry and Drew Hinshaw

— Don’t hesitate to change your major – Carter Kolpitcke
(DIERSEN: In retrospect, with benefit of hindsight, I would have a) majored in accounting instead of management at UIC 1966-1968 and NIU 1969-1970, b) earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1976 or sooner instead of an MBA from Loyola in 1976, and c) taken the CPA examination much sooner than I did. I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979 when I was 30 years old. But by then, IRS and other employers viewed me as being much too old to have a successful career in accounting.)

REFINERY 29
— Is Early Retirement Actually Worth The Cost? – WHIZY KIM
(DIERSEN: If you are not retired, when you do retire, what will you do with the rest of your life? If you are retired, what are you doing with the rest of your life? My Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. Since 2000, I have been putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters together and sending them out. Those newsletters a) have gone out each and every morning since 2004, b) have gone out each and evening too since 2015, c) have included links to almost 396,900 articles and information on many upcoming events, and d) have been and always will be free and contain no advertising.)
https://www.refinery29.com/en-gb/2021/04/10409276/early-retirement-cost-experiences

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The retirement fantasy used to look like this: It’s your 65th birthday, and you can finally kick back. You’re basking in the glow of your sunset years, thrilled at the idea of never having to work again. Head empty, no thoughts, just Mai Tais on the beach. It’s the ultimate, idyllic reward for dedicating decades of your life to work — especially when you sometimes (or often) didn’t want to do so. In reality, retirement looks totally different than it once did — even as a fantasy. At the same time as an increasing number of Americans are retiring later than 65, many others are throwing as much money as they can toward the goal of retiring early — not just by their 50s, but in their 30s or 40s. The F.I.R.E. movement, which stands for “financial independence/retire early,” has gained a lot of disciples in recent years, but it also has its detractors. Some people love the idea in theory, but don’t think it’s feasible for them in practice. Others wonder what you do with the rest of your life if you retire in your 30s. But many of those who are on the F.I.R.E. path are quick to point out that early retirement isn’t necessarily about never working again. Instead, it’s about having more control over the work you choose to do. Ultimately, the question isn’t simply whether it’s realistic for the average person — it’s also about whether the costs of pursuing early retirement are worth it.)

— While the nation debates voting rights, turnout in suburban Chicago municipal elections is ‘frankly disappointing’ – CLARE PROCTOR
https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/breaking/ct-election-municipal-low-turnout-20210407-ecvcvo77nbap7nxzox3glwxkyq-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: At the county level, voter turnout mostly hovered in the low to midteens, typical for many counties in consolidated elections. On the lower end, McHenry County reported a voter turnout of 9.5%, and Kankakee County topped voter turnouts across the counties at 18.6%. The pandemic didn’t have a significant effect on voter turnout, according to county clerks’ offices, with sufficient alternative options for people to vote early or by mail instead of in person. In Cook, DuPage and Lake counties, turnout was 14.7%, 15.6% and 13.7%, respectively. In Will County, southwest of Chicago, 15.8% of voters cast a ballot Tuesday. That’s nearly 3 percentage points higher than the previous consolidated election in 2019, which had a voter turnout of 13.2%, said Charles Pelkie, chief of staff for the Will County clerk’s office.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20210225/deborah-sajdak-2021-candidate-for-college-of-dupage-board
(FROM THE ARTICLE: After a lengthy professional career, I am in a position now where I can become more involved in the community. Since education has such a vital role in our society I would like to make some contribution to the success of our young people as they learn and grow. In my positions with Nordstrom I have acquired a broad variety of skills that include: procurement, conflict resolution, negotiation, organization and communication and I would enjoy being able to use these skills in a completely different environment. The only direct experience I have had in higher education has been as a student myself, but it seems to me that the COD board is a place where the skills that I developed over decades at Nordstrom, a large, well known retailer, could be exceptionally useful. At Nordstrom, in my positions as store manager as well as a buyer, I was able to cultivate a broad variety of competence in important management skills including procurement, conflict resolution, negotiation, organization, and communication. I would really enjoy putting those abilities to good use in a completely different, noncommercial environment. I believe that I would bring a fresh set of eyes to the table and would be able to give a different perspective to the issues that are currently faced.)

(DIERSEN: Democrats illegally encourage illegal immigration. To vote for Democrats is to illegally encourage illegal immigration. Those who illegally encourage illegal immigration should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.)
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/greg-hinz-politics/chicago-starts-see-immigrant-tide-mexico
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Agencies here that serve refugees and other immigrants seeking asylum say their caseload has soared in recent weeks and now is at the highest level it’s hit for several years. For instance, Heartland Human Care Services reports that as of this morning it was housing 240 children who crossed the border unaccompanied by adults. On Dec. 3 it housed none. “I have no doubt we’re going to hit capacity” of the 359 beds Chicago-based Heartland operates under a contract with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, said Executive Director David Sinski. “You’ve read about what’s happening. I’m sure they’re going to keep coming.” At this point, the wave appears likely to at least match surges in 2018 and 2014, Sinski says. Though the kids are young, “almost all” are teenagers from the Golden Triangle area of Central America, he says. “They’re seeking safety. They’re escaping violence that is unimaginable.” The young refugees are usually flown to Chicago by the federal government and temporarily housed here by Heartland before being given permanent homes. Another group that deals with family units, the Interfaith Committee for Detained Immigrants, says it now is meeting 30 to 50 people a week who show up on Greyhound buses straight from the border. The group expects the number to keep growing even though it’s at the highest level its seen in years. Colin McCormick, the agency’s program director for refugee assistance, says the surge began in late February as the Biden administration eased some rules and “gets a little bigger” every week. Many are stuck on Greyhound buses for at least two days before they arrive in Chicago, where they may have even longer journeys ahead, depending on their final destination.” As is the case with Heartland, “the vast bulk” of the arrivals are from Central America. But a few are from other countries, such as Haiti, entering the U.S. via Mexico. Though it may be controversial with some U.S. natives, to the immigrants, trying to enter here “is not a choice,” McCormick asserts. “They’re doing what they need to stay alive.” Most of those arriving here end up not staying in Chicago. Heartland says its clients, who are placed with sponsors, usually family members vetted by the agency, end up on the East and West coasts, not Chicago. All are tested for COVID when they arrive here, with some also tested on the border. Catholic Charities also runs a similar program for unaccompanied youngsters, with some finding their way here on their own or via other agencies. Metropolitan Chicago has a large Mexican-American population, with growing numbers of people from Guatemala, Honduras and other Central American countries. To some degree the influx is seasonal, tailing off in the cold winter months before building again when it’s warm. If that’s the case this year, the tide may have a ways to run before it peaks.)

(DIERSEN: The TSP was established in 1987. I contributed the maximum amount to the TSP until my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is dramatically reduced because a) my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, delayed my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13, and forced me to take a $20,361 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12. My Democrat Post Office forced me resign in 1969.)
https://www.fedsmith.com/2021/04/01/soaring-stock-market-means-more-tsp-millionaires/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As the stock market continues to climb to new record levels, it is helping federal employees with their retirement savings as well. The number of federal employee millionaires investing in the Thrift Savings Plan has hit a new high. According to the latest data from the TSP, as of the end of the first quarter 2021, there are now 84,808 TSP investors with a balance of $1 million or more. The highest account balance is now pushing $10 million; the lucky current or former federal employee with this designation has a total TSP account balance of $9,318,238. The number of millionaires in the TSP has increased 12.4% since the end of 2020.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Research shows that when stress becomes long-term, it can negatively affect every system in the body. Over time, chronic stress can become debilitating. It can also increase the risk of serious health complications, such as obesity, depression, and heart disease. Many symptoms of stress are easy to ignore or mistake for symptoms of other common conditions. The symptoms of chronic stress include: headaches, digestive problems, skin problems, pain, lack of energy, focus, and interest in previously enjoyed activities, being irritable, easy to anger, and forgetful, eating too much or too little, misuse of alcohol or drugs, feeling overwhelmed, anxious, fearful, or out of control, feeling depressed, insomnia, heart palpitations)

— Affordable Housing Should Be a Priority – Jamelle Bouie
(DIERSEN: Where did your down payment come from? I bought a new town home in University Park September 1972 when I was 24 years old. The down payment came from what I had earned a) working for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights full-time August 1970-March 1971 and part-time since March 1971 and b) working for IRS in Chicago and then in Harvey since June 1971. That money also enabled me to buy a new 1972 Corvette in October 1971 and to pay tuition and books for graduate business courses at Loyola starting in January 1972. I had graduated debt-free from NIU August 1970 owning a 1969 Dodge Charger SE. The money for tuition, books, and room and board came from what I earned delivering mail for the Park Forest Post Office November 1966-September 1969. I bought a studio condo in downtown Chicago in 1974 and a one bedroom condo in downtown Chicago in 1976. The down payments came from what I earned working for IRS. My wife and I bought a home in Wheaton in 1978. The down payment came from what she had earned working for the FBI and U.S. League of Savings Institutions (League). We had a new home built in Wheaton in 1984. The down payment came from the equity that we had in our home and from what I earned working for GAO and from what my wife earned working for the League.)

— Vaccine passports are latest flash point in COVID politics – MARK SCOLFORO
(DIERSEN: Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes want vaccine passports to be required so that they can use that requirement to more rapidly and more viciously destroy those who are not vaccinated.)
https://apnews.com/article/travel-new-york-data-privacy-immunizations-coronavirus-pandemic-f1c7623849d5458bcda3aed67f4c3d90
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The argument over whether passports are a sensible response to the pandemic or governmental overreach echoes the bitter disputes over the past year about masks, shutdown orders and even the vaccines themselves. . .But lawmakers around the country are already taking a stand against the idea. GOP senators in Pennsylvania are drawing up legislation that would prohibit vaccine passports, also known as health certificates or travel passes, from being used to bar people from routine activities. “We have constitutional rights and health privacy laws for a reason,” said Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff, a Republican. “They should not cease to exist in a time of crisis. These passports may start with COVID-19, but where will they end?” Benninghoff said this week his concern was “using taxpayer money to generate a system that will now be, possibly, in the hands of mega-tech organizations who’ve already had problems with getting hacked and security issues.”)

The contributions were sent in an effort to help the House majority stay ahead of a tough upcoming election cycle without contributing directly to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee — which AOC has been publicly against. She created a political action committee (PAC) to raise money for progressive primary candidates herself after she criticized DCCC policies.)

HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW
— The Elements of Good Judgment
(DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are extremely judgmental. According to them, I have extremely bad judgment. They demonize, denigrate, and condemn a) each and every decision that I make to include or to not include links to articles in GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) each and every comment that I make or do not make on those articles. They focus on destroying not only me, but on destroying all those a) who they cannot manipulate, b) who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) who refuse to pander to them, d) who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, and/or e) who refuse to give them money.)

U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT
— NOVEMBER 1, 2012 FLASHBACK: Why You Should Never, Ever Discuss Politics at Work – Jada A. Graves
(DIERSEN: Democrats run the federal government. They get rid of federal employees who are Republican, and especially those who are Republican and White, male, older, non-veteran, conservative, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owners, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. I should write a book about the many times that my Democrat GAO coworkers and subordinates asked me questions to confirm that I opposed patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination and the promotion of dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, illegal drugs, and abolition of the First and Second Amendments.)

REVIEW JOURNAL
— The 10 radical new rules that are changing America – Victor Davis Hanson
https://www.reviewjournal.com/opinion/opinion-columns/victor-davis-hanson/victor-davis-hanson-the-10-radical-new-rules-that-are-changing-america-2321809/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 1) Money is a construct. It can be created from thin air. Annual deficits and aggregate national debt no longer matter much. . .2) Laws are not necessarily binding anymore. Joe Biden took an oath to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”. . .3) Racialism is now acceptable. We are defined first by our ethnicity or religion, and only secondarily — if at all — by an American commonality. . .4) The immigrant is mostly preferable to the citizen. . .5) Most Americans should be treated as we would treat little children. . .6) Hypocrisy is passe. Virtue-signaling is alive. . .7) Ignoring or perpetuating homelessness is preferable to ending it. . .8) McCarthyism is good. Destroying lives and careers for incorrect thoughts saves more lives and careers. Cancel culture and the Twitter Reign of Terror provide needed deterrence. . .9) Ignorance is preferable to knowledge. . .10) Wokeness is the new religion, growing faster and larger than Christianity. Its priesthood outnumbers the clergy and exercises far more power. Silicon Valley is the new Vatican, and Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google and Twitter are the new gospels.)

(DIERSEN: While I worked for the Democrats who ran GAO’s Chicago office 1980-1997, they assigned me to supervise at one time or another all the employees who they hired who were disabled, minority, female, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, Democrat, liberal, those whose ancestors had not been in America for a long time, and those employees who had serious performance problems.)
