CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Durbin snubs Kirk on Trump dump – Rick Pearson  (DIERSEN: To get Durbin’s support, what more would Kirk’s advisors have Kirk do?  Will they have Kirk officially banish all Trump supporters from the Illinois Republican Party (IRP)?  Would that be enough for Durbin to support Kirk?  Provably not.  Kirk would have to officially banish all Republicans from the IRP and especially those who are Protestant, conservative, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

— Will County fears impact of state’s fiscal woes – Susan DeMar Lafferty  (DIERSEN: What are your connections with Will County?  My ancestors have lived in Crete since 1854.  My great grandfather and then my grandfather operated Crete’s only hardware store at the northeast corner of Main & Exchange for many decades; I lived in an apartment above that store 1948-1954.  My brother continues to live in Crete in a home that my grandfather had built in 1926 on land that his grandfather bought in 1864; I lived in that home 1954-1972.  I attended Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and Crete-Monee High School 1962-1966. I lived in a town home in University Park full-time 1972-1974 and part-time 1974-1976. I rented out that town home 1976-1984.  I delivered mail in University Park and in the Will County part of Park Forest 1966-1969. I collected delinquent taxes for IRS in Will County 1972-1974.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— CPS layoffs have hundreds of teachers looking for work – Andy Grimm  (DIERSEN: Social studies teacher Robert DiPrima was shocked at being cut.  My critics/opponents would hint/imply/argue/shout that I should have anticipated that my Democrat GAO Superiors were going to succeed in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” that expired on September 30, 1997. They had always ranked me in the lower half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, they had not promoted me since 1986, they had kept me off audits of IRS 1980-1985 and since 1988, they had forced me to take an $18,459 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980, etc.  Further, in August and September of 1997, they acted like one of my Democrat subordinates who was a minority had threatened to leave GAO unless GAO got rid of me and gave him my job and gave him my preferred corner office.  Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents side with my Democrat GAO superiors and my Democrat GAO subordinate.)
http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/cps-layoffs-have-hundreds-of-teachers-looking-for-work/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Social studies teacher Robert DiPrima carried a sheaf of resumes — and a heavy heart — to a CPS job fair at International Union of Operating Engineers Local 399 in the South Loop on Thursday. His talks with principals were encouraging, but DiPrima still was shocked at being cut from the faculty at Jane Addams Elementary after 16 years at the South Side School. “It’s my first interview in 16 years,” DiPrima said. “Jane Addams is a family. I had kids of kids I’d taught in class.”)

CHICAGO DEFENDER
— Social media defends Malia Obama’s alleged pot smoking controversy – Terry Shropshire  (DIERSEN: We all can compare ourselves with Malia Obama.  What did you do when you were 18 years old?  During 1966 and 1967, I was a full-time UIC student.  I pumped gasoline part-time for John’s Sinclair in South Chicago Heights, then I delivered mail part-time for the Park Forest Post Office, and then I worked full-time for the Post Office during the summer of 1967.  I drove a 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint that I had bought new with money that I had saved washing dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights 1964-1966.  I lived with my parents and brother in Crete.  If I had not sought and obtained a student draft deferment, in all likelihood, I would have been drafted.)
http://chicagodefender.com/2016/08/11/social-media-defends-malia-obamas-alleged-pot-smoking-controversy/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Social media rushed to the defense of first daughter Malia Obama, who went to Lollapalooza in Chicago last week and was allegedly filmed puffing on a weed blunt by someone close to her. First of all, the young woman needs to choose new friends if the story turns out to be true. People acted like their heads were going to explode just because 18-year-old future Harvard student was twerking at the concert and skipped out on the Democratic National Convention in the first place. And now, in a celebrity gossip website Radar Online that seems to be owned and operated by the Kardashian family, they posted Tuesday showing Malia Obama allegedly smoking something at the same concert. Radar claims it was marijuana. Social media brushed away the so-called episode as frivolous, trivial and not worthy of coverage and blasted Radar and other outlets for trying to shame an 18-year-old acting like she was … well … 18.)

THE BLAZE
— Never-Trump Republicans Plot Next Step for New GOP Nominee – Kaitlyn Schallhorn
http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2016/08/11/never-trump-republicans-plot-next-step-for-new-gop-nominee/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Members of the movement to free the delegates from presidential candidate Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention failed, but their efforts haven’t completely subsided. In email and phone calls to supporters of the anti-Trump movement, the group Free the Delegates has its sights set on another way to replace Trump as the party’s nominee — by invoking Republican National Committee rules that would allow members to replace the nominee aside from just “death, declination or otherwise” beginning with a written petition that includes signatures of at least 16 RNC members from 16 states. The group’s executive director, Regina Thompson, said that the effort was still “a work in progress like anything else of this nature is.” “This is the only avenue left within the RNC rules,” Thompson said in an interview with TheBlaze. “We’re committed to working within the Republican Party process and this is the next step — and only step — left within the rules to change the nominee.” The free-the-delegates movement has placed emphasis on the RNC rules that allow for it to fill “vacancies which may occur by reason of death, declination, or otherwise” — with the “otherwise” clause serving as their catalyst. And in order to try to recall and replace Trump, they must get the RNC to hold a meeting by submitting a written petition with at least 16 committee members’ signatures from at least 16 states. Thompson told TheBlaze that the group’s request and petition have been emailed to almost every RNC member and that the group is now in the process of following up with those members. Free the Delegates has sent emails to supporters to request volunteers for help in contacting members.)

 

POLITICO
— Trump predicts winning the presidency will get him into heaven – Louis Nelson  (DIERSEN: Many, if not most, if not virtually of my most nasty, most troubled, most failed, and/or most vicious critics/opponents in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois shout that they are religious.  They stress that they are a member of a church, that they attend church services, and/or that they give money to a church.  They demonize, denigrate, and condemn those a) who are not a member of their church, b) who do not attend services at their church, c) who do not give money to their church, d) who do not give tem money, e) who refuse to serve as one of their operatives/dupes, and/or f) who they cannot manipulate/dominate.  Of course, needless-to-say, the aforesaid have long since condemned me to HELL.)

NEW YORK TIMES
— How Much Does Donald Trump Pay in Taxes? It Could Be Zero – JAMES B. STEWART  (DIERSEN: Democrats always want Republicans to pay more taxes.  My Democrat IRS superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were furious that I paid less federal income tax because I deducted my education expenses.  To disallow those deductions, they and Money Magazine hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the courses were not job-related, did not help me carry out my job duties, were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and were a distraction.)

— FRONT PAGE: The Millions of Americans Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Barely Mention: The Poor – BINYAMIN APPELBAUM  (DIERSEN: What do/did you do to help the poor?  My Democrat Post Office superiors would say that they forced me to resign in 1969 so that poor Democrats, poor minorities, poor females, poor younger people, and/or poor veterans could have my job. My Democrat IRS superiors would say that they did not promote me beyond GS-12 so that poor Democrats, poor minorities, poor females, poor younger people, and/or poor veterans could have those promotions. My Democrat GAO superiors would say that they did not promote me beyond GS-13 so that poor Democrats, poor minorities, poor females, poor younger people, and/or poor veterans could have those promotions and that they forced me to retire in 1997 so that poor Democrats, poor minorities, poor females, poor younger people, and/or poor veterans could have my job and my preferred corner office.)

http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/news/2016/08/11/facebook-news-feed-informative-posts-more-weight/88563800/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Facebook is altering the formula that determines what its 1.71 billion users see when they log into the social network to give priority to posts that make them feel informed, the Silicon Valley tech giant said Thursday. It’s the latest in a series of changes to guide Facebook users to compelling content — be it status updates from friends, news articles about current events or the latest about their favorite celebrity —  that sucks them in longer and keeps them coming back. Facebook says its goal is to put the updates that are most important and relevant to each individual user highest in their News Feed, yet Facebook users often complain that News Feed, coming up on its 10th anniversary, doesn’t know what they want to see at the top of their News Feed. News Feed is critical to Facebook’s success. The more time users spend in it, the more ads Facebook can show them. Last week, Facebook said it was weeding out junk by cracking down on “clickbait,” articles with misleading or vague headlines that lure people into clicking on them. In June, Facebook said it would give preference to posts from friends and family over content from public figures and publishers.)

GOPUSA
— Pandering to illegals
http://www.gopusa.com/?p=13622
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a bid to continue the ineffectual immigration legacy of President Obama, if not a pander for Hispanic votes, Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton vows to, if elected, introduce comprehensive immigration “reform” within her first 100 days in office. Already that’s “luring (immigrant) families to the U.S. and wrecking innocent lives,” according to a statement from the National Border Patrol Council. The labor union representing 16,500 workers says what Mrs. Clinton proposes would be worse than Mr. Obama’s “disastrous” amnesty. More executive actions would add chaos at the southern border, providing cover for drug cartels and Islamic extremists to gain entry, according to the Border Patrol council, which backs GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump. “We are already seeing a massive influx of activity on our southern border,” according to the council. As it is, Obama’s pockmarked “pathway to citizenship” led to state lawsuits, a federal judge’s injunction and finally a deadlocked Supreme Court. Now Clinton vows to expand Obama’s executive actions on immigration, USA Today reports. Any comprehensive “reform” begins with Congress — not with empty campaign promises from either candidate. And until the people’s representatives determine what those reforms should be, it is the president’s sworn duty to uphold this nation’s immigration laws.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Top Illinois GOP donor William Kunkler: Hopes Trump is ‘humiliated’ on Election Day – Rick Pearson  (DIERSEN: Anti-Trumps are counting on Trump to lose big time in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, in Illinois, and in America.  Of course, anti-Trumps are already making plans to a) first get rid of Trump supporters in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, in Illinois, and in America and b) then get rid of all those in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, in Illinois, and in America who do not share their hatred of Trump.  If you are a member any of the following groups and you are not shouting your hated of Trump, the anti-Trumps will get rid of you: Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, and/or your whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.  If you are of German national origin and/or if you are a draft dodger, you are in especially big trouble.  Anti-Trumps are moral relativists who believe that their end justifies their means.  Anti-Trumps are disciples of Saul Alinsky. If/when the anti-Trumps come to destroy you, what will you do?)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-donald-trump-illinois-donor-humiliated-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A veteran Republican campaign donor who’s pushing for immigration reform says he hopes “Trump and his supporters are humiliated” on Election Day. William Kunkler, a private equity executive who backed Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s unsuccessful bid for the Republican presidential nomination, said he wasn’t voting for the GOP nominee and expected Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton would become president and move quickly to push immigration changes. “Republicans will be licking their wounds after the effects of Trump leading the ticket and should be willing to deal with (Clinton) on sensible reform,” Kunkler, co-chair of the Illinois Business Immigration Council, said at a panel hosted by the group and FWD.us, the immigration advocacy organization founded by Facebook Chairman Mark Zuckerberg. Kunkler — who backed and helped bundle campaign cash for previous GOP nominees including Arizona Sen. John McCain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — was one of the few speakers to openly mention Trump by name to an audience at the tech incubator TechNexus in the Lyric Opera building. From the launch of his campaign in June of last year, Trump has vowed to build a wall on the Mexican border, called some immigrants from Mexico “criminals” and “rapists,” proposed to ban Muslims from immigrating and later expanded his plan to include immigrants from counties engaged in supporting terrorism. Calling Trump’s rhetoric “ugly and hateful,” Kunkler noted “the number of Latinos registered to vote has increased substantially (from 2012), and the turnout of this group is expected to be much higher to fight back against Trump. I support that fight and hope Trump and his supporters are humiliated at the polls.” John Rowe, former chairman of Exelon Corp. and another co-chair of the business council, said he found this election season “especially challenging for those of us who generally vote Republican.” Along with belief in “moderate taxes (and) individual responsibility,” Rowe said like-minded Republicans “also believe in people.” “We have an opportunity as a country to continue to make this melting pot work. It’s a challenge. We have no alternative but to make it work,” he said. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, who represents the Miami area, appeared on a panel with Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk, North Shore Rep. Robert Dold and state Senate GOP leader Christine Radogno. The Florida congressman said he was optimistic a comprehensive reform plan that addressed border security and people in this country illegally could be accomplished. Kirk and Dold have said they do not support Trump, while Diaz-Balart has said he will vote for the GOP nominee. “Eventually the (critical) noise has to settle, the window of opportunity will open — it doesn’t have to open much — and it requires the extremes to kind of just shut the hell up,” Diaz-Balart said. “I’m convinced that noise, which is a lot of noise, is a small part of our country.” Radogno said the “red meat” being fed low-information voters about immigrants and immigration needs to be replaced with education. “I think that one of the worst things that we can do, and we see that going on right now and we see it in both parties, is making immigration a political issue, and what we do is feed people’s lack of information, the misinformation that they have. I think if people are educated, they understand … that immigration makes sense from an economic perspective, from a business perspective.”)

How much money and other things of value do they promise/give their operatives and their dupes to destroy you?  Operatives and dupes for my critics/opponents talk and act like they been promised lots of money, a new home, a new car, a sweetheart job, a sweetheart contract, favorable legislation, and lots more if they succeed in destroying me.)

— SNEED: Malia’s timing? Hmmm. The web was burning up with a RadarOnline report Wednesday first daughter Malia Obama, 18, was snapped smoking what looked like pot while twerking away at Lollapalooza in Chicago on Sunday, July 31. But hang on. Here’s a timeline: Longtime pal/attorney Brendan O’Connor left Sneed a phone message that Sunday to report he had just spotted Malia and her girlfriends at Lollapalooza at 4 p.m.; observed them for about 45 minutes; noted the retinue of Secret Service agents; and was stunned by Malia’s impressive composure. “Let me tell you, the Obamas would be very proud of the classy way Malia was handling herself,” O’Connor’s phone message stated. “I did not engage with them, but I was only 20 feet away,” O’Connor told Sneed on Wednesday, shortly after the alleged pot story broke. “Malia was sitting on the lawn with six girlfriends like normal kids, no VIP treatment. No guys in tow. All very respectful, and all behaving better than the average idiots attending the concerts. The Secret Service had a perimeter around her. And no one appeared to be drinking or smoking. They had walked around to see the group Years & Years and the singer Halsey.” Less than an hour later, RadarOnline claimed, Malia was tagged by a witness inhaling what smelled like pot passed to her by some guy while watching the Bryson Tiller concert. “I’d be very surprised,” said O’Connor. “The Secret Service may have been wearing casual shirts and summer shorts, but they were out in full force.” Well, hey.

— Donald Trump Says He’s OK With Losing the Election – Alexandra Mondalek  (DIERSEN: Of course, needless-to-say, if/when Trump loses, anti-Trumps will first destroy Trump’s supporters and then they will destroy those who do not hate Trump.)
http://time.com/money/4448134/donald-trump-ok-losing-election/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Thursday while calling in to CNBC’s “Squawk Box” morning show, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said he’s “ok” with losing the election. “All I do is tell the truth, and if at the end of 90 days I’ve fallen short because I’m somewhat politically correct, even though I’m supposed to be the smart one, and even though I’m supposed to have a lot of good ideas, it’s ok, you know, I go back to a, a very good way of life. It’s not what I’m looking to do I think we’re going to have a victory, but we’ll see.” The most recent Real Clear Politics poll shows Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton ahead of Trump by almost eight points, echoing Trump’s implication: He may very well lose. Of course, the poll numbers follow a series of gaffes the GOP nominee has made in the last few weeks, including making off-kilter comments on sexual harassment and insulting a Gold Star military family. Consistent with his past behavior, Trump hasn’t apologized for the political missteps, either. So, what would Trump do after the election? He could go back to managing his real estate business, though he’s not hurting for work (even though Trump-branded businesses have suffered.) He’s currently worth about $4.5 billion — or $10 billion, according to him.)

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH COLOR PHOTO OF GRIFFIN: Wide range of rules on what teacher classes taxpayers cover – Jake Griffin  (DIERSEN: Officially, the federal government encourages its employees to take job-related courses.  However, while I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, the agencies that I worked for either had no tuition reimbursement program or one that provided only token reimbursement. Nevertheless, while I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, spent lots of my own time and money taking courses to earn a job-related bachelor’s degree, three job-related master’s degrees, and two job-related professional certifications. However, my Democrat superiors, Democrat supervisors, Democrat coworkers, and Democrat subordinates in the federal government always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the courses that I took a) were not job-related, b) did not help me carry out my job duties, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and/or d) were a distraction.  They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, a minority, a female, or a veteran.  To keep their jobs or to get promoted, my Democrat superiors, Democrat supervisors, Democrat coworkers, and Democrat subordinates in the federal government focused on wasting the careers of and getting rid of federal employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20160810/news/160808971/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A Daily Herald analysis of 92 suburban school district teacher contracts showed 70 with some type of tuition reimbursement program for educators. As in District 41, a vetting process of the coursework is nearly ubiquitous in all the contracts, but that process varies widely. Most contracts allow teachers to be reimbursed only for classes that count toward an advanced degree or have practical applications to the classes they teach or could teach in the future. District 41’s University of La Verne courses aren’t part of an advanced degree program. Critics of tuition reimbursement programs said school boards and administrators should pay closer attention to these policies, since teachers’ education levels are directly tied to their salary and pension costs. “When you are tying compensation to the number of classes taken and completed, that seems to be the wrong measurement,” said David From, Illinois state director for Americans for Prosperity, a national tax policy reform organization. “It should be tied to how good you are. It’s doing our kids a disservice and it’s certainly doing taxpayers a disservice.” Teachers union officials argue everyone, including taxpayers, benefits from increased education for a school district’s teachers, particularly when those classes are germane to what they teach.)
— Blagojevich’s 14-year prison term remains; wife lashes out at judge – Barbara Vitello  (DIERSEN: Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes glorify and praise the judges who have ruled against me.  My critics/opponents in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, in Illinois, and in the federal government have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout.)

https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-partisan/wp/2016/08/09/the-gop-must-dump-trump/
— The workers Clinton and Trump should not forget – Joe Davidson  (DIERSEN: Virtually all federal employees are Democrats.  Democrats are moral relativists who believe that their end justifies their means.  Democrats are disciples of Saul Alinsky. If Trump wins, they will do everything that they can to make his administration fail, and therefore, to make America fail.)
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2016/08/10/dont-forget-civil-servants-during-the-presidential-transition/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the heat of a bizarre presidential campaign, the horse race makes it easy to forget that the point of politics is governing. And when we think of the next administration, we often focus on who will get the top political appointments. But to govern effectively, any administration needs to consider civil servants, particularly during the transition, when they will play an enhanced role until new political appointees are in place. Max Stier, president and chief executive of the good-government Partnership for Public Service, calls career federal employees the “vital engine” that keeps government going. “The reality is the career workforce is the continuous thread across administrations,” he said. “They’re the people who know how it works and how things get done.” Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump should not forget them. The Presidential Transitions Improvements Act, signed by President Obama in March, recognizes their importance and calls for each agency to appoint a senior career employee to oversee and implement transition activities.)

— No break for Blago; judge won’t reduce ex-gov.’s prison sentence – Jon Seidel and Tina Sfondeles  (DIERSEN: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in giving me a lifetime pension sentence.  Constructively, by forcing me to take their early retirement “offer,” in today’s dollars, they put me on administrative leave for the rest of my life at $50,720/year, or 42% of my $120,427/year salary.  Why did they punish me that way?  I had complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, and, since 1988, I had been an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged GAO with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation.  Previously they had punished me by a) not promoting me beyond GS-13, b) keeping me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and c) forcing me to take an $18,459 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

http://www.gopusa.com/?p=13537
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The mainstream media have gone to great lengths to avoid reporting on controversies with the potential to damage President Obama’s reputation or legacy. The endeavor to politicize the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) became an article of impeachment against Richard Nixon in 1974. But the actual politicization of the IRS under Barack Obama is treated as a phony scandal ginned up by Fox News, talk radio and the tea party movement. So it’s no surprise that recent news stories about the IRS scandal have been met with nearly complete silence from the mainstream media. The goal is clear: if the media ignore this scandal long enough, it will be treated and dismissed as old news.)

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/14-states-donald-trump-win-november/story?id=41240078
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois  Trump in Lawrence Township, New Jersey, May 19, 2016: “You’ve let go of thousands of people, and you’ve left, in this case, Indiana, in Chicago, and all of the different places … We are going to win Illinois. We are going to win Indiana. We are going to win these states.”  ABC News rating: Solid Democratic. If Trump is able to pick up Illinois, it would be the first time in almost three decades a Republican has done so. With Democratic strongholds like Chicago delivering a large number of votes, the Democrat has won by double digits in the past six presidential elections.)

MONEY MAGAZINE
— Why Trump and Clinton Need to Join the Conversation on Retirement Security – Dan Kadlec
http://time.com/money/4445086/trump-clinton-retirement-security/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Imagine if the candidates harped on the savings and retirement crisis. Even though 20% of Americans have no retirement savings, only 8% list retirement security as a top concern, the survey found. The Government Accountability Office has found that about half of all households near retirement age have zero retirement savings and no pension other than Social Security. So where is this conversation among our would-be leaders? The public is more than ready. Some 68% of American workers complained last fall that presidential hopefuls were not talking enough about retirement issues, according to a poll from the Financial Services Roundtable. In a major speech on the economy this week, Republican nominee Trump didn’t utter a single word about retirement, longevity or aging. Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s forthcoming speech on the economy isn’t likely to raise the issue either. Her website talks about retirement almost exclusively in terms of Social Security, which she vows to expand by raising taxes on the wealthy. This at least acknowledges the savings crisis. But it also suggests a woeful misunderstanding of how to fix it.)

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/09/opinion/the-great-affluence-fallacy.html?ref=opinion
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As we’ve gotten richer, we’ve used wealth to buy space: bigger homes, bigger yards, separate bedrooms, private cars, autonomous lifestyles. Each individual choice makes sense, but the overall atomizing trajectory sometimes seems to backfire. According to the World Health Organization, people in wealthy countries suffer depression by as much as eight times the rate as people in poor countries.)

— Millennials: Saving $1 million is easier than you think – Gail MarksJarvis  (DIERSEN: How much money do the operative and the dupes for your critics/opponents have?  Virtually all the operatives and the dupes for my critics/opponents have severe financial problems.  They hint/imply/argue/shout that they will do anything for money. They paint themselves as being “thugs for hire.”)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/columnists/ct-marksjarvis-millennials-retirement-millionaires-0807-biz-20160805-column.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Could you save $1 million over a lifetime?  Millennials seem to think becoming a millionaire is completely out of the question. But many of them are wrong and are already blundering their way toward $1 million without realizing it. With a little more attention to handling their money, many could end up much better off than their parents. A new Wells Fargo survey shows that two-thirds of millennials figure it’s ridiculous to assume they will ever accumulate $1 million. But 59 percent are already going through the discipline of saving. The trouble is many are flying blind, unaware of where they should stick the money so their good intentions turn into powerful action. One obstacle for nonsavers is their view of adulthood. About 85 percent of millennials say that saving for retirement is an important part of becoming a “financial adult.” Yet many see that adult moment arriving at age 32, not at 25 when small savings make $1 million more attainable.)

NEW YORK TIMES
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD: HARDCOPY ARTICLE TITLE: The Challenge Trump Poses To Objectivity – Jim Rutenberg  (DIERSEN: Of course, needless-to-say, a) anti-Trumps hint/imply/argue/shout that I am pro-Trump and b) pro-Trumps hint/imply/argue/shout that I am anti-Trump.  Of course, needless-to-say, anti-Trumps, pro-Trumps, and everyone else have blamed me, are blaming me, and will forever blame me for everything that is bad.)
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/08/business/balance-fairness-and-a-proudly-provocative-presidential-candidate.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If you’re a working journalist and you believe that Donald J. Trump is a demagogue playing to the nation’s worst racist and nationalistic tendencies, that he cozies up to anti-American dictators and that he would be dangerous with control of the United States nuclear codes, how the heck are you supposed to cover him? Because if you believe all of those things, you have to throw out the textbook American journalism has been using for the better part of the past half-century, if not longer, and approach it in a way you’ve never approached anything in your career. If you view a Trump presidency as something that’s potentially dangerous, then your reporting is going to reflect that. You would move closer than you’ve ever been to being oppositional. That’s uncomfortable and uncharted territory for every mainstream, nonopinion journalist I’ve ever known, and by normal standards, untenable. But the question that everyone is grappling with is: Do normal standards apply? And if they don’t, what should take their place? Covering Mr. Trump as an abnormal and potentially dangerous candidate is more than just a shock to the journalistic system. It threatens to throw the advantage to his news conference-averse opponent, Hillary Clinton, who should draw plenty more tough-minded coverage herself. She proved that again last week with her assertion on Fox News Sunday that James Comey, director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, had declared her to be truthful in her answers about her decision to use a private email server for official State Department business — a grossly misleading interpretation of an F.B.I. report that pointed up various falsehoods in her public explanations. And, most broadly, it upsets balance, that idealistic form of journalism with a capital “J” we’ve been trained to always strive for. But let’s face it: Balance has been on vacation since Mr. Trump stepped onto his golden Trump Tower escalator last year to announce his candidacy. For the primaries and caucuses, the imbalance played to his advantage, captured by the killer statistic of the season: His nearly $2 billion in free media was more than six times as much as that of his closest Republican rival. Now that he is the Republican nominee for president, the imbalance is cutting against him. Journalists and commentators are analyzing his policy pronouncements and temperament with an eye toward what it would all look like in the Oval Office — something so many of them viewed as an impossibility for so long.)

USA TODAY
— No degree? No problem as tight labor market changes the game – Paul Davidson  (DIERSEN: Do you have a college degree? In 1971, having a job-related bachelor’s degree was a requirement for IRS to hire you at the GS-7 level (currently $43,915/year). In 1980, having a job-related master’s degree was a requirement for GAO to hire you at the GS-9 level (currently $53,717/year).
http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2016/08/07/no-degree-no-problem-tight-labor-market-changes-game/88303732/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Less educated workers are suddenly hot commodities. San Diego-based Get It Done House Buyers, which buys homes to sell at a profit, began hiring salespeople without a Bachelor’s degree eight months ago because of the tight labor market, says CEO Todd Toback. Turns out they’re his best performers.  “They’re really, really hungry,” Toback says. Now, instead of reviewing resumes, he says, “We see how people act during interviews.” One of those salesmen, Raymond Sylverne, 28, formerly a full-time Marine, says he was aware of employers’ bias toward college grads but, “I had confidence. If I had a college degree but couldn’t convert (sales, I’d) be useless.” The 4.9% jobless rate has left employers a shrinking pool of available workers, forcing many to hire candidates with only high school diplomas or less for jobs that previously required four-year degrees. Many recruiters are pleased with the results, prompting them to modify how they evaluate applicants.The shift is a boon for workers who have struggled on the outer edges of a labor market that has long deemed a college degree a requirement.)

CEDAR RAPIDS GAZETTE
— The problem with decriminalizing marijuana – Joseph Lemon
http://www.thegazette.com/subject/opinion/guest-columnists/the-problem-with-decriminalizing-marijuana-20160807
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Last week, Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner signed into law reductions in the criminal penalties for minor marijuana possession. Previously, those convicted of marijuana possession faced possible jail time; now, just a citation and a fine. This reminds us of an age-old admonition: “Just because you can do something, it doesn’t mean you necessarily should.”  Critics of this more liberal (or libertarian, depending upon your political persuasion) policy toward marijuana have reason to worry. As reported by the New England Journal of Medicine, there is an inverse correlation between the perceived risk of marijuana and the incidence of people’s use of it. Simply put, the less risky people view marijuana, the more likely they are to use — and abuse — it. For some, decriminalization may be perceived as a tacit governmental endorsement of certain activities — including smoking pot. This moral dilemma is heightened when the government stands to profit from the behavior in question. Like sales taxes generated from marijuana sales in Colorado and Washington, for example. Since those states have legalized recreational marijuana use, the perception of its risk has lessened, and the amount of its use has increased proportionately. So, too, have vehicular fatalities related to marijuana use. According to research conducted by AAA, marijuana-related traffic deaths in Washington state have doubled since pot was legalized there. There are other reasons for concern. To begin, marijuana growers have continually bred marijuana to increase its potency. Today, the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”) – i.e., the psychoactive component — has increased by 22 times compared with marijuana strains that were available in the 1960s. Although often considered to be benign, the New England Journal of Medicine has identified serious negative impacts of marijuana use on brain functioning. These include reduced neural connectivity and damage to areas of the brain such as the frontal cortex, parietal lobe, and temporal lobe. In turn, that damage results in a broad range of neural dysfunction: everything from problem-solving to the understanding and expression of emotions become impaired. It should come as no surprise, therefore, that marijuana use is highly correlated to underperformance at both school and work. Marijuana users experience higher dropout rates and lower academic achievement. On the job, they are responsible for a disproportionate number of workers’ compensation claims, along with absenteeism and lost productivity. Marijuana advocates often argue that it is not addictive. Research indicates otherwise. As reported in the New England Journal of Medicine, about 9 percent of people who experiment with marijuana will become addicted to it. In our American culture, we laugh when Hollywood lampoons potheads in movies such as “Pineapple Express” and “Dude, Where’s My Car?” But, at The Abbey Addiction Treatment Center in Bettendorf, we see the faces of marijuana addicts first hand. And it’s not funny. We see people who struggle with simple tasks at school and work. People incapable of perceiving or expressing emotion. People who suffer from higher incidence of mental health diagnoses, such as schizophrenia, paranoia, and anxiety. While we have great success in helping our patients to recover from their addictions, we can’t help but remind the public that the best way to mitigate certain public health risks is to avoid the factors that cause them in the first place. Put another way, just because you can use marijuana, it doesn’t mean you necessarily should.)
