NATIONAL REVIEW
— Entitlements: The Most Dangerous Addiction – DENNIS PRAGER
http://www.nationalreview.com/article/445940/entitlements-american-addiction
(FROM THE ARTICLE: All addictions – whether drug, alcohol, gambling, sexual, or cigarettes – are very hard to escape. There is one addiction, however, that might be more difficult than any other to escape – in part because it is not even regarded as an addiction. It is Entitlements Addiction, an addiction to getting something for nothing. One indication as to the power of Entitlements Addiction is that, while great numbers of people have voluntarily given up – almost always at great pain – drugs, alcohol, gambling, etc., few give up an addiction to entitlements. For the majority of able-bodied people who get cash payments, food stamps, subsidized housing, free or subsidized health insurance, and other welfare benefits, the thought of giving up any one of those and beginning to pay for them with their own earned money is as hard as giving up alcohol is to an alcoholic. Politicians know this, which is why it is close to impossible to ever reduce entitlements. And, of course, the Left knows this, which is why the Left almost always wins any debate over entitlements. Every American who is the beneficiary of an entitlement backs entitlements, and many who are not beneficiaries of entitlements would like to be. This, aside from ideology, is why the Left constantly seeks to increase entitlements: The more people receive government benefits, the more people vote left.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Emails to Emanuel raise questions about dozens of possible lobbying violations – Bill Ruthhart and Hal Dardick  (DIERSEN: Who/what do you lobby for?  I lobby for the Republican Party platform, the Illinois Republican Party platform, and the Milton Township Republican Central Committee resolution against video gambling.  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes lobby against some, most, or all of the aforesaid.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-rahm-emanuel-emails-lobbyists-registration-met-20170321-story.html
— The Democrats’ immigration problem – Henry Olsen  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, anti-Trumps viciously demonize, viciously denigrate, and viciously condemn Trump supporters as being haters, racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things, and especially Trump supporters who are Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/commentary/ct-democrats-immigration-trump-muslim-ban-20170320-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If Democrats want to win again, they must do one of two things: Attract back the Obama-Trump voter or win over the Romney-non-Trump voter. Their protestations against border security and the travel ban are not likely to do either. Surveys show that Obama-Trump blue-collar voters like Trump’s anti-immigration stance. These voters are likely to have felt competition from immigrants legal and illegal, and they want that competition to stop. Even though many of these voters agree with Democrats on traditional economic issues like taxes and entitlement spending, their primary concern now is to protect their livelihoods and standard of living by reducing competition from foreigners living at home and abroad. . .Democrats are either unwilling to see the truth or unable to acknowledge it: They cannot win back the presidency without attracting people who disagree with some of their views. Doing that does not mean singing the same old songs louder and more clearly.)

— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD: How a 1970s Arlington Heights case is affecting Trump’s travel ban – Burt Constable  (DIERSEN: Based in this, the statements made by advocates of “Welcoming Cities” can be used against those advocates. Overwhelmingly, those advocates have made statements that show that they are anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders (except Bill Clinton), and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors and that they want to get rid of those who are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders (except Bill Clinton), and/or those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20170321/news/170329828/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to a landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling involving a 1970s housing lawsuit in Arlington Heights, judges are free to consider Donald Trump’s statements while ruling on the legality of his revised travel ban.)
— White House tries to distance Trump from campaign aides – AP  (DIERSEN: Who distances themselves from you?  Members of the following groups distance themselves from me: anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders (except Bill Clinton), and anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.  In addition, members of the following groups distance themselves from me: those who a) reject planks in the Republican Party platform and work against those like me who support those planks, b) reject planks in the Illinois Republican Party platform and work against those like me who support those planks, c) reject the Milton Township Republican Central Committee resolution against video gambling and work against those like me who support that resolution, d) focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate, e) were defendants in lawsuits that I have filed, f) are operatives for the aforesaid, and/or g) are dupes for the aforesaid.)

I wholeheartedly condemn all the negative stereotypes being hurled at Republicans. As a Democrat, I would not expect to be judged based on the actions or words of Hillary Clinton, even though I voted for her. This misguided belief that all Republicans should be judged for the actions or words of Trump is unacceptable.)

I have $72,135 less to spend each year because my GS-13 Step 10 GAO salary was $122,991 in today’s dollars and my Civil Service Retirement System pension is only $50,856 or $72,135 less or 59% less.)

BARBWIRE
— THE PRICE OF (WHITE) PRIVILEGE – DANIEL GREENFIELD  (DIERSEN: What is your DNA? I would have to pay the full 5% White privilege tax.  According to
http://dna.ancestry.com, my ancestry is 33% Europe West, 28% Scandinavia, 24% Great Britain, 11% Ireland, 2% Europe East, 1% Finland/Northwest Russia, and 1% Italy/Greece.)
http://barbwire.com/2017/03/18/the-price-of-privilege/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A proposal has been making its way through the social justice sewer system to have white people pay a 5% privilege tax. That would be a lot cheaper than the current wealth redistribution built into the tax system. In 2004, black people made up 12% of the population and 20% of those who didn’t file taxes at all. It was estimated that 50.7% of African American households, 52% of Hispanic households and 37% of white households paid no income taxes. The numbers would likely have only gotten worse after the recession, which destroyed large numbers of African-American jobs, and the Obama years, which traded social welfare for economic progress. An otherwise equal tax system with a 5% white privilege tax would be an enormous improvement. How do you calculate the income losses for a white student shut out of college by affirmative action or a white business owner’s income losses due to preferential business programs aimed at minorities? The white student would happily pay that 5% to be allowed to go to college instead of being told that more diverse students with worse grades will cut ahead of him in line because they are “disadvantaged”. It would be easier for the white business owner to calculate in a fixed privilege tax for an otherwise competitive market than the intangible forms of diversity discrimination that rig the game. A 5% white privilege tax would be far too honest. The real tax is hidden and much higher. But the white privilege tax does raise all sorts of fascinating questions. How do you calculate it? It can’t be by appearing or identifying as a minority. Such an unfair performative system would allow Rachel Dolezal, aka Nkechi Diallo, to escape paying her white privilege tax after unfairly exploiting her white privilege to head the NAACP. If white people can just braid their hair in dreadlocks and spend a week in a tanning salon before renaming themselves Mkesi Daluboo or Willami Clintonoo, what good is a white privilege tax? The only fair way to do it is with a DNA test.)

PATRIOT POST
— Turkey Threatens European Invasion? – Nate Jackson  (DIERSEN: Mexico has been invading America for many decades. Anti-Americans support that.)
https://patriotpost.us/posts/48070
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s no secret — at least to those informed by anything other than Leftmedia propaganda — that jihadis infiltrate the ranks of “refugees” in order to carry out terrorist attacks. Even Barack Obama’s State Department quietly acknowledged that fact. While American judges bemoan Donald Trump’s travel ban because it “targets Muslims,” some Muslims certainly don’t have any trouble making it all about religion. As Gary Bauer notes, “A diplomatic spat erupted recently when Turkey wanted to send diplomats to the Netherlands to campaign among the Turkish residents there for an upcoming constitutional referendum in Turkey. Dutch officials refused to allow the visit, which coincided with their own hotly contested election, and the Turkish government erupted in rage.” “Shame on the EU,” Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan thundered. “Down with your European principles, values and justice.” He wasn’t done, claiming, “They started a clash between the cross and the crescent. There is no other explanation.” Worse, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu threatened, “Soon wars of religion … will start in Europe.” This might happen because, he added, “We could open the way for 15,000 refugees … each month and blow [Europe’s] mind.” Now, a brief history lesson. Less than 100 years after Mohammad’s death, Muslims were invading Europe — first Spain and then France before Frankish King Charles Martel defeated them at the Battle of Tours in 732. Hundreds of years of subsequent Muslim aggression led to the Crusades. So no, Dutch politicians did not “start a clash between the cross and the crescent.” Muslims did that 1,400 years ago and they’ve never stopped. The battle just looks different now, and the “army” is a horde of “refugees.” Did we mention that Turkey is a member of NATO and ostensibly and ally of Western Europe?)

WASHINGTON TIMES
— Fearful Mexicans scrap Cinco de Mayo – Cheryl K. Chumley  (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always a) sided with foreign countries, and especially with Mexico, against America, b) sided with citizens of foreign countries, and especially with citizens of Mexico, against citizens of America, and c) hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I am a racist because I support America’s immigration laws, the immigration plank in the Republican Party platform, and the immigration plank in the Illinois Republican Party platform.  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes either a) have never been harmed by illegal immigration or b) benefit directly from it.)
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/mar/20/cinco-de-mayo-canceled-mexicans-fear-trump-deporta/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A Cinco de Mayo celebration called El Carnaval de Puebla, held each year in Philadelphia, has just been suddenly canceled — and in short order, it’s due to President Donald Trump. Why? The normal and usual Mexican holiday participants are worried they might get deported. This is a good thing. For years, under Barack Obama, the law-abiding of the nation have watched with a wintry mix of outrage and disbelief as the nation’s illegals stood at podiums — public podiums, immigration officials be hanged — to shed tears for their entitlement rights, and demand the mean ol’ Republicans who want to deport them get in the amnesty line. Jose Antonio Vargas was probably the worse-case scenario of a face-slapping to America’s border control laws. Remember Vargas? He was the guy who penned a long-winded heart-puller in New York Times Magazine entitled, “My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant.” Was he arrested? No. Shortly after writing another piece about the plight of the illegals — to include his personal struggles in a country like America with borders — Team Obama announced the halting of deportation of those age 30 and under who met certain DREAM Act circumstances. Vargas was also the guy who called his illegal self an American — that he just didn’t “have the right papers.” Right. But he was hardly the only illegal in America, under the Obama administration, to boldly go forth as an illegal — to demand equal rights to citizens. Thousands of others took part in public events, outright outing their illegal statuses, outright casting deportation concerns to the wind. And why wouldn’t they? Obama had an open door policy at the border — an open door policy that led him, in the days before the last presidential election, to pretty much encourage those without voting rights to, well, get to the ballot boxes and vote, anyway. His message: Because who’s going to deport them?  When asked in late 2016 by a member of the media if undocumented citizens, dreamers — “I call them citizens” — got in the election game and voted, would immigration officials then know their location and deport them, Obama’s response: “Not true. And the reason is first of all when you vote you are a citizen yourself. And there is not a situation where the voting rolls somehow are transferred over and people start investigating.” Go on, Obama egged. Vote. Nobody’s checking — not in my administration, anyway. Well, new administration. And now illegals across the nation seem to be getting the message that the new sheriff in the White House isn’t so blind to the borders. Typically, up to 15,000 gather in South Philadelphia each year for the Cinco de Mayo celebration. But this year? Different story, it seems. In recent times, Trump’s border control officials have arrested or detained hundreds of illegals. Why just within the last few days, 248 were detained in Pennsylvania, Delaware and West Virginia during a mass federal raid that lasted about two weeks. As such, illegals everywhere are starting to think: Hey, maybe we ought not strut about as if we’re citizens any longer. Good idea. “The group of six organizers decided to cancel unanimously,” said Edgar Ramirez, one of the Cinco de Mayo organizers, to a local NBC affiliate about the fate of the event. “Everyone is offended by the actions of ICE. They did not feel comfortable holding the event.” Ramirez’s comments were meant to be critical — were meant to demonstrate just how Trump’s crackdowns were causing undue chaos in the illegal community. But sorry, no sympathy here. For the law-abiding in America, Ramirez’s announcement is just yet another feel-good moment for the election of Trump — another chance to breathe a collective sigh of relief that the adults are back in charge and order, justice and law once again count.)

— No Crackdown on Illegal Employers – Editorial (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, Trump should immediately require all employers in America to use E-Verify a) before hiring any new employees and b) to verify that all their current employees are legal.)
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/20/opinion/no-crackdown-on-illegal-employers.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Trump began his campaign assailing immigrants as ruthless lawbreakers who steal American jobs with impunity. To halt them, he has vowed to build a wall along the border with Mexico, hire thousands of new immigration agents, ramp up immigrant detention and subject visa applicants to even more rigorous vetting. His administration has been largely silent, however, about the strongest magnet that has drawn millions of immigrants, legal and not, to the United States for generations: jobs. American employers continue to assume relatively little risk by hiring undocumented immigrants to perform menial, backbreaking work, often for little pay. Meanwhile, as Mr. Trump’s deportation crackdown accelerates, families are being ripped apart, and communities of hard-working immigrants with deep roots in this country are gripped by fear and uncertainty. As long as employers remain off the hook, a border wall and an expanded dragnet can only make temporary dents in the flows of undocumented immigrants.)

http://www.fox32chicago.com/news/local/242518816-story
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The owners of a longtime Ravenswood musical instrument store say they are shutting down and leaving Chicago because they are Trump supporters. Worlds of Music Chicago co-owner Suzzane Monk shared her frustration in a letter to Crain’s Chicago Business: “From the constant protests blocking roads and businesses, to the attacks on Trump supporters, to the verbal and online bullying going on every day across this city, Chicago, you have made it quite clear that Trump supporters are not welcome. When my fellow Chicagoans praised the riot at UIC that shut down the Chicago Trump rally I attended, I was angry and ashamed. Since I am not one to be silent, I have been bullied. My husband and our music store, Worlds of Music Chicago, are still being bullied. Sadly, my story is not unique. Other Chicago Trump supporters are experiencing the same hate, bullying and intimidation. If you need any further evidence of Trump supporters being unwelcome, you need merely turn on the local news, pick up a local paper or read your alderman’s latest newsletter bashing and misrepresenting our president.” Monk said the store, located at 4161 N. Damen, will close at the end of April. Her letter to Crain’s follows an unsuccessful GoFundMe campaign titled “Save Music Store From Trump Haters.” That campaign had a goal of $30,000, but as of March 18, had only raised $5,955.)

— Tips for defusing heated political debates in the workplace – Tom Fox  (DIERSEN: Democrats run the federal government.  I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years.  I should write a book about all the times that my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates asked me questions to confirm that I was a conservative Republican and that I opposed patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, smoking, pot, gambling, diminution of the First and Second Amendments and that I had been baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, that I was 100% Gernan national origin, that my ancestors had been in America since the 1840s, that my wife had a good job, that we had given up trying to have children, that we did not adopt, and that we did not become foster parents, that we were saving as much money as we could for our retirement, etc.  They used my responses to demonize me, to denigrate me, and to condemn me as someone a) who should pay the price of Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion, b) who should have his career wasted, and c) who should be gotten rid of. Government is nasty.  Politics is nasty. Democrats are nasty. Democrats are disciples of Saul Alinsky who believe that their end justifies their means.)

— Study: You need 86 applicants to hire that one right person – Gene Marks  (DIERSEN: GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job.  IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.  The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. Many millions have not and will not seek a job with the federal government a) because the pay and benefits are terrible, b) because the advancement opportunities are terrible, c) because they lack required education, work experience, professional certifications, and/or professional licenses, d) because they cannot pass an employment examination, e) because they cannot pass a background investigation, f) because they cannot pass a physical examination, g) because they cannot take the demonization, denigration, and condemnation that comes with being a federal employee or federal retiree, and/or h) because they are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran and they know that the federal government discriminates against its employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)

CENTRAL ILLINOIS PROUD
— What’s Neil Gorsuch’s religion? It’s complicated  Supreme Court nominee defends religious rights – DANIEL BURKE (DIERSEN: What religion are you?  I was baptized, raised, and conformed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran (MSL). I should write a book about churchgoers in Wheaton, in Gen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage Country, and in Illinois who demonize, denigrate, and condemn MSLs as being “too conservative.” They promote a) booze, pot, gambling, and other vices, b) LGBTQ activity, c) abortion, d) illegal/mass immigration to fill their pews, e) race based preference giving, f) gender based preference giving, g) age discrimination, h) patronage and nepotism, i) political affiliation discrimination, j) dependence on government, k) dependency of charity, l) hatred of Trump hatred of Trump’s supporters, and/or m) other terrible things. They all are extremely judgmental and they all have condemned me to Hell.  They all hint/imply/argue/shout that they manipulate/dominate all the churches in Wheaton and that they could/would easily stop any church in Wheaton from accepting me.)
http://www.centralillinoisproud.com/news/politics/whats-neil-gorsuchs-religion-its-complicated/675237663
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Eventually, the conversation turned to Gorsuch’s own religious background. He was raised Catholic, but now worships with his wife and two daughters at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Boulder, Colorado. Like the city, the congregation is politically liberal. It bars guns from its campus and installed solar panels; it condemns harsh rhetoric about Muslims and welcomes gays and lesbians. And its rector, the Rev. Susan Springer, attended the Women’s March in Denver, though not as a form of protest but as a sign of support for “the dignity of every human being.” Springer says St. John’s is carrying out the covenant Episcopalians recite during baptisms: to strive for justice and peace among all people. Her congregation, she added, includes liberals, conservatives and all political points in between. “What binds us together as one body is a curiosity and longing to encounter and know God,” she wrote in an email to CNN, “a willingness to explore our own interior selves, and a desire to leave the world in some small way better for our having been in it.”)

http://www.laconiadailysun.com/opinion/letters/102905-russ-wiles-3-17-360
(FROM THE LETTER: Thanks to Matt Vespa of townhall.com for pointing out examples of the lunacy of political correctness in academia today. Of course we know that this insanity is due in part to teachers imbuing a belief in young students that America is just not a very nice country. Of course, this too is yet another example of the progressive-left convincing folks that expecting foreigners who we welcome into this country to assimilate is just plain racist, mean and nasty. Democrats and the progressive-left in this country apparently are not able to comprehend the irony of their ideology. Perhaps that is why they are not paralyzed by what should for all intents and purposes be debilitating “cognitive dissonance.” Please look it up and then reflect on their actions, the irony of which should keep them up at night. It apparently does not because, after all, they have good intentions and so the often damaging results of their well intended actions and deeds are irrelevant to them. Crazy right?)

AMERICAN THINKER
— The Left’s Descent into Fascism – Shari Goodman  (DIERSEN: If you are a Trump supporter, where are you no longer welcome?  What year is it in America – 1933, 1934, 1935, 1936?)
http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2017/03/the_lefts_descent_into_fascism.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Long before the creation of ghettos and concentration camps, the demonization of Jews began in 1933 when Germany elected Adolf Hitler as Chancellor.  Following his election, Hitler created a fascist dictatorship which eventually led to the Holocaust and the extermination of six million Jews whose only crime was their Jewish identity. The dehumanization of Jews was a necessary requirement for Hitler and his fellow Nazis and they did so with a campaign of demonization, ridicule, and blame.  Hitler’s election provided Germans a daily dose of anti-Semitism and gave it legitimacy while providing a rationalization for the extermination of six million Jews. The persecution of European Jewry was gradual.  At first Jews were no longer welcome at schools and universities.  Later, they were no longer able to own their businesses and homes. With time, public transportation was unavailable to them, public restrooms were forbidden, hospitals excluded them and eventually they were no longer able to use public streets or go outdoors.  They were complete outcasts in a land they called home.  By the time the crematoriums were running, Jews were no longer viewed as humans, but as vermin to be stamped out for the good of humanity. Today, the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency has provoked the fascist Left to reject the election results.  Taking a page from Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radials, in which Alinsky advised his followers in Rule 13 to “pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it,” the Left is now resorting to the fascist tactics of targeting Conservatives much like the Nazis who targeted European Jewry for their economic and social ills.  Conservatives and Trump supporters are reluctant to identify themselves and conceal their support for fear of a backlash from the Leftist elites. From the Berkeley riots to Black Lives Matters marches it is not safe to be a conservative Trump supporter on American streets and college campuses.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— Mere Budgetary Christianity  What would Jesus say about big government? – JAMES FREEMAN  (DIERSEN: What do you say to religious leaders who ever increasingly hint/imply/argue/shout that God hates those who are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders (except Bill Clinton), and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time?  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in Wheaton and in Glen Ellyn are extremely judgmental and hint/imply/argue/shout that God loves them but God hates me and God is going to send me straight to Hell mainly because I spend Sunday mornings putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out instead of attending church services.)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/mere-budgetary-christianity-1489780327
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times is having fun implying that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s effort to replace ObamaCare is at odds with Mr. Ryan’s Catholic faith. The column is of a piece with the “Jesus was a socialist” arguments that bounce around the left half of the social media universe. Without wrestling with any difficult questions of faith or logic, Mr. Kristof simply casts the federal bureaucracy in the role of Jesus. Then the Timesman proceeds to suggest through satire that by seeking to reduce outlays and improve incentives in federal programs, Mr. Ryan is defying the will of his God. Of course if federal agencies were ever actually given the statutory mission to do as Jesus would do, Mr. Kristof would be as horrified as anyone. But this seems to be a political season when people who spend much of the year driving religion out of public life abruptly drag it back in as they attempt to justify big government. It’s not necessarily persuasive. The ancient book has numerous admonitions to perform charity and various condemnations of greed, but it’s not easy to find a passage in which Jesus says that government is the best vehicle to provide aid, or that anyone should force others to donate. Even casual readers of the Bible may notice that Jesus doesn’t get along all that well with the political authorities of his time and (spoiler alert!) his relationship with government ends rather badly. Back then, tax collectors were not presumed to be the dedicated public servants that we appreciate so much today. And in our own time, social conservatives who think the U.S. Government has become hostile to religion—Christianity in particular—should consider what Jesus had to put up with.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— Two choices for Trump supporters in Chicago: Be silent or be bullied – SUZZANNE MONK  (DIERSEN: How nasty are the anti-Trumps in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, and in your county?  One would expect that the fewer votes that Trump got in the aforesaid jurisdictions, the nastier that the anti-Trumps would be there. One would expect that the more religious, government, political, and/or financial clout that anti-Trumps have in the aforesaid jurisdictions, the nastier that the anti-Trumps would be there.)
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20170317/ISSUE07/170319882/two-choices-for-trump-supporters-in-chicago-be-silent-or-be-bullied
(FROM THE LETTER: For 24 years, I have loved living in Chicago with my husband, a native Chicagoan. I have loved doing business in Chicago. The food, the sports, the culture and the arts, and the diversity of people have been a fertile ground for our life, and I have been proud to call myself a Chicagoan anywhere I went in the world. But for the last year I have not loved living in Chicago. I am ashamed of you, Chicago, and the intolerance you now accept in the name of politics. You see, I am a Trump supporter. My husband is a Trump supporter, too. And because we support Trump, we no longer feel proud, or safe, being in this city. Chicago, you have always been a Democrat-run town, but this year you have become a one-party city terrorizing anyone not in your party for their beliefs. From the constant protests blocking roads and businesses, to the attacks on Trump supporters, to the verbal and online bullying going on every day across this city, Chicago, you have made it quite clear that Trump supporters are not welcome. When my fellow Chicagoans praised the riot at UIC that shut down the Chicago Trump rally I attended, I was angry and ashamed. You have made it quite clear, there are two choices for Trump supporters in Chicago: Be silent about your politics or be bullied for them. Since I am not one to be silent, I have been bullied. My husband and our music store, Worlds of Music Chicago, are still being bullied. Our store has had to cut employee hours due to the bullying, and soon we will have to cut our employee altogether. We will close at the end of April, because we are no longer willing to subject our staff, our customers, our neighbors and ourselves to the daily risk. Sadly, my story is not unique. Other Chicago Trump supporters are experiencing the same hate, bullying and intimidation. If you need any further evidence of Trump supporters being unwelcome, you need merely turn on the local news, pick up a local paper or read your alderman’s latest newsletter bashing and misrepresenting our president. So, after 25 years, after a lifetime for my husband, we have to leave. In the end, it wasn’t the high taxes, constant road construction or high crime. It wasn’t the unchecked gang violence or political cronyism. In the end, we have to leave because of the hate you are willing to tolerate. I’d like to say, it’s not you, it’s me—but Chicago, I’ve got to be honest . . . it’s you. You’ve changed. You are no longer the nose-to-the-grindstone hardworking Democratic City of the Big Shoulders. You have a Trump-sized chip on that big shoulder, and it has turned you into a city of fear, hate and division. A city that encourages political bullying. A city I can no longer call home.)

— House Passes Legislation to Streamline VA’s Hiring Procedures – Ian Smith (DIERSEN: GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job.  IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.  The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.)

— House Passes Legislation Making It Easier to Fire VA Employees – Ian Smith  (DIERSEN: Were it not for federal civil service protections, because I have always been a Republican, a) the Post Office would NOT have hired me in 1966 or let me work there for almost 3 years, b) IRS would NOT have hired me in 1971 or let me work there for almost 9 years, c) IRS would NOT have promoted me in 1972, 1973, or 1974, d) GAO would NOT have hired me in 1980 or let me work there for almost 18 years, and d) GAO would NOT have promoted me in 1986. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always promoted patronage.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— Prove it or apologize, Quigley tells Trump on wiretapping – GREG HINZ  (DIERSEN: Who comes to your defense when you are slandered?  Virtually no one comes to my defense when my critics/opponents slander me because my critics/opponents have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois. They have made it very clear that they will have their vicious operatives and their vicious dupes viciously destroy any individual, any organization, any company, or any government that comes to my defense. That is why I am no longer the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman, a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member, the Milton Township Republican Central Committee webmaster, an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member, an American Association of Political Consultants Midwest chapter board member, a GAO employee, etc.)

They stress that they are a member of a church, that they attend church services, and that they give money to a church.  Many of my critics/opponents use government and/or charities a) to take money away from those who have more money (usually Republicans) and b) to give that money to those who have less money (usually Democrats, Libertarians, and Greens).)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: What is fascinating about this desire to chop-chop-chop the federal work force is this: that force is now already lower than it was in 1940. The federal work force has been shrinking steadily every decade for the past 70 years. See the Washington Post chart at upper right. All of which poses the question: what’s really going on here?)
