That is no way to win,” he said.)

They were furious when I got promoted to GS-9 (currently $66,942/year) in 1972 when I was 24, to GS-11 (currently $80,994/year) in 1973, and to GS-12 (currently $97,079/year) in 1974. I had completed only 3 graduate evening business courses at Loyola when I was promoted in 1972, 7 in 1973, and 11 in 1974. I did not earn an MBA from Loyola until 1976. I did not take and pass the CPA examination on my first attempt until 1979.)

According to my critics/opponents, my Democrat GAO Chicago office superiors did not a) fail/refuse to promote me beyond GS-13, b) throw me off audits of IRS, c) always rank me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and d) force me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old because in 1988 I became the office’s only active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. According to my critics/opponents, my Democrat IRS Chicago office superiors did not a) fail/refuse to promote me beyond GS-12, b) disallow my travel vouchers in 1974, and c) disallow my education deductions in 1978 because I complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. According to my critics/opponents, my Democrat GAO superiors did not force me to suffer a $22,996 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO because of the aforesaid.

— Chicago Cop Sues For Right To Change His Race – SAMUEL SPENCER (COMMENT: If I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran, my Democrat superiors in the federal government would not have wasted my career, they would not have taken the many big adverse actions against me that they did.)
https://dailycaller.com/2024/02/27/chicago-cop-sues-for-right-to-change-his-race/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A veteran of the Chicago Police Department has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city because they won’t allow him to change his race designation within their records. Mohammad Yusuf, 43, a 20-year veteran of the police department, is suing the city of Chicago because they won’t allow him to change his race designation from Caucasian, even though he “identifies as Egyptian and African American,” according to CWB Chicago. In 2004, when Yusef joined the force, the department only offered Caucasian, Black and Hispanic as race designations. Now, the Chicago Police Department reportedly lets new recruits choose from over nine different race designations and allows officers to alter their gender identity if desired. But in Yusef’s case, the department has a “blanket prohibition” for race changes, CWB Chicago reported. The lawsuit states: “The Racial Identity Policy Ban facially and intentionally discriminates against certain individuals based on personally identifiable characteristics like race,” CWB Chicago reported. Yusef’s complaint suggests that his career was hindered due to his race designation, according to the outlet. “Despite Yusuf’s exemplary qualifications and the purported race-neutral policy of the Merit System, Yusuf has been repeatedly bypassed for promotion in favor of less qualified candidates, based on their race, specifically African American officers, some of whom had disciplinary issues and were not suitable for the responsibilities of a sergeant,” the complaint said, according to CWB Chicago. Although Yusef took a 23 and Me DNA test to prove his Egyptian heritage at the request of the CPD, the department remained unwilling to approve his request, according to the outlet. The CPD does not reportedly require transgender officers to provide proof of their “transition” before updating their personal records.)

The more of the aforesaid planks that my critics/opponents reject, the harder that they work against me. I should write a book about my critics/opponents who are working against me the hardest. In 2021, they ended my service as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks.)
https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/cpac-conservatives-straw-poll/2024/02/25/id/1154886/
(COMMENT: Newsmax was voted by the Conservative Political Action Conference the “most trusted” cable news outlet in America — trouncing rival Fox News by a whopping 34 points, according to a straw poll conducted at the annual conference. CPAC announced the findings of the survey Sunday after four days of meetings in Washington, D.C. Each year CPAC organizes the nation’s most influential conservative conference, drawing major political and celebrity figures weighing in on policy issues and political races. The CPAC poll findings showed: 49% said Newsmax, when asked which network do you “trust the most.”
Only 15% said the same about Fox News. 29% chose “none” of the options as a trusted outlet. Either CNN or MSNBC was the choice for 1% each.
The survey was conducted by McLaughlin & Associates from Wednesday to Saturday — with a total of 1,478 conservatives participating. Participants appeared to be happy about Newsmax but were less sanguine about Big Tech platforms and their leaders. Some 55% of CPAC attendees singled out Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg as the Big Tech CEO “doing the most to undermine America.” Google CEO Sundar Pichai came in second at 32% with Amazon’s Jeff Bezos at 5% and Apple’s Tim Cook at just 1%. The survey also asked participants what was the best way to combat “woke elites.” Almost a majority, 46%, said it would be to “give to grassroots efforts to mobilize conservatives.” Some 25% said donating “directly to candidates for Congress” was the best approach. Participants completed the survey using a unique six-digit PIN code to eliminate multiple or outside voting.)

— Increasingly, employers are turning away older applicants or firing older employees to replace them with younger ones. – Sheila Callaham (COMMENT: Age discriminators get rid of older White men so that they can give preference to younger women and minorities. I should write a book about age discriminators. I would focus on the biggest age discriminators in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, and in Wheaton. I would focus on those who have the most religious, government, political, and/or financial clout. I would focus on those who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me.)

— What should the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) promote more strongly in its next platform and what should the IRP oppose more strongly in that platform? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

I served on the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee in 2008. Sadly, my requests to be appointed to serve on those committees again in 2012, 2016, and 2020 were not granted. Of course, I have asked to be appointed to serve on the 2024 IRP State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee.

Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party exists to defend and advance conservative principles.

In my opinion, the next IRP platform should more strongly promote the following:
— Personal responsibility,
— Traditional marriage and family,
— Right to life,
— Enforcement of immigration laws,
— Discouragement of vices,
— Second Amendment rights, and
— Equal opportunity, that is, no race or gender based preference giving.

Republican elected officials should promote the aforesaid.

In my opinion, the next IRP platform should more strongly oppose the promotion of the following:
— Dependency on government and charity,
— LGBTQ,
— Abortion,
— Mass/illegal immigration,
— Booze, gambling, pot, and other vices,
— Diminishment of Second Amendment rights, and
— DEI, that is, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.

Republican elected officials should oppose promotion of the aforesaid.

https://www.texastribune.org/2022/06/18/republican-party-texas-convention-cornyn/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Meeting at their first in-person convention since 2018, Texas Republicans on Saturday acted on a raft of resolutions and proposed platform changes to move their party even further to the right. They approved measures declaring that President Joe Biden “was not legitimately elected” and rebuking Sen. John Cornyn for taking part in bipartisan gun talks. They also voted on a platform that declares homosexuality “an abnormal lifestyle choice” and calls for Texas schoolchildren “to learn about the humanity of the preborn child.” The actions capped a convention that highlighted how adamantly opposed the party’s most active and vocal members are to compromising with Democrats or moderating on social positions, even as the state has grown more diverse and Republicans’ margins in statewide elections have shrunk slightly in recent years. Votes on the platform were collected at the end of the party’s three-day convention in which party activists moved to add multiple items to the official Texas GOP platform. As the convention closed, two separate sets of ballots — one allowing delegates to choose eight of 15 legislative priorities and another allowing delegates to vote on the 275 platform planks — were gathered. Those will now need to be tallied and certified in Austin, but it is rare for a plank to be rejected, according to party spokesperson James Wesolek.)

— Native Americans hope Illinois lawmakers can transfer stolen land, ban racist school mascots – Mike Miletich (COMMENT: I should write a book about my GAO coworker for almost 18 years 1980-1997 who shared many demographics with me. We both were DuPage County residents, Republicans, CPAs, White, male, married, non-veteran, Protestant, and our ancestors had been in America for a long time. But he was a Native America. He filled the office’s Native American quota. I would focus on the many ways in which our GAO superiors gave him preference over me. Unlike me, they let him work until he was eligible for regular retirement. We were both very active in the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter. He differed from me in that he was younger than me, he had started his career with GAO, his wife had little or no income, and he had children.)

My CSRS pension is dramatically less because my Democrat superiors wasted my career and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. Further, my Social Security is dramatically less because I get a CSRS pension. Notwithstanding the aforesaid, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always demonized, denigrated, and condemned my CSRS pension as being much too generous.)

— CPAC is denying press passes to ‘left-wing’ journalists – DOMINICK MASTRANGELO (COMMENT: I have always fully disclosed that I am conservative. I attended many CPACs, although not recently, and I reported on them as a journalist for GOPUSA. According to my Democrat and RINO critics/opponents, you are not a “real” journalist unless you claim to be nonpartisan. RINOs are anti-conservative.

HECHINGER REPORT
— Did your college application essay mention race? Talk to us about it. (COMMENT: In my 1971 Loyola and 1976 DePaul applications, I stressed that I was an IRS Revenue Officer and that my employee manual encouraged me to take graduate business and accounting courses and that I wanted to take those courses to maintain and improve my job skills as an IRS employee. But in 1978, to get rid of me, my IRS superiors disallowed the courses that I had taken ignoring/rejecting what I had stated in my applications and falsely arguing that I the courses a) did not relate to my job duties, b) did not maintain or improve my job skills, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and d) qualified me for a “new trade or business.” They would not have done that nor would they have disallowed my travel vouchers in 1974 and gotten rid of the IRS manager in 1975 who had promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974 if I had not complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. I would not have complained about the aforesaid discrimination if my Democrat IRS superiors had not taken the aforesaid adverse actions against me. They would not have taken the aforesaid adverse actions against me if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)

In retrospect and with benefit of hindsight, what did you learn? Would you have done those things if you knew then what you know now? If so, what would you have done differently? I should write a book about that. I would focus on my serving as a) the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019, b) the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, c) the Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster 2008-2010 and 2000-2004, and d) an Illinois Center Right Coalition officer 2003-2007. I would focus on those who took the most/biggest adverse actions against me because I did the aforesaid. I would focus on those who have blamed me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters the most for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. I would focus on those who destroy those like me a) who they cannot manipulate or dominate, 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, e) who refuse to cover up their wrong doing, and/or f) who refuse to give them money.)

— Conservatives are targeting IVF. Women deserve a choice. – MICHAEL FRERICHS (COMMENT: Government is nasty/vicious. Politics is nasty/vicious. Democrats are nasty/vicious. In the late-1980s, my wife and I gave up trying to have children without trying IVF. Our doctors told us that because we both had serious fertility problems, success would have been very unlikely. We did not adopt or become foster parents. My Democrat GAO superiors used that against me viciously. They falsely hinted/implied/argued/shouted not only that I lied about trying to have children, but that we were disgusting selfish DINKs (dual income, no kids) who never wanted to have children. They used that slander to punish me severely in 1989. They did the aforesaid because I had become an active member in a class action lawsuit in late 1988 that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)

— Pritzker’s budget to include plan to erase $1 billion in medical debt. Gov. J.B. Pritzker will include the $10 million ask in his budget proposal for the next fiscal year to erase $1 billion in medical debt for Illinois residents — and the investment would mark the first in a multi-year plan. – Tina Sfondeles

— QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR REPUBLICAN PRECINCT COMMITTEEMAN: What have you done and what will you do to encourage the registered Republican voters in our precinct to cast Republican ballots in the March 19, 2024 Republican primary? Which of your fellow township and county elected Republican Precinct Committeemen are running to serve as officers of our township and county Republican party organizations?

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— What are the demographics of your county? How have those demographics changed? As more and more and more voters who have demographics that vote for Democrats move into DuPage County, Democrat candidates get more and more and more votes in DuPage County. Those who have the following demographics vote for Democrats: liberal, minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, unmarried, poor, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or have ancestors who have not been in America for a long time. How have the leaders of your Republican county and township party organizations responded to demographic changes? I should write a book about how the leaders of the DuPage County Republican Central Committee and the Milton Township Republican Organization have responded to demographic changes since 2000. – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

— Illinois GOP Slams Gov. Pritzker Over Migrant Funding – Nick Koutsobinas
https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/illinois-gop-jb-pritzker/2024/02/21/id/1154496/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois Democrat Gov. J.B. Pritzker, during his State of the State address on Wednesday, called for a budget proposal of $182 million to be directed toward the healthcare costs of illegal migrants in his state, the Center Square reported. Framing the issue as one of a broken immigration system as opposed to an open-border policy constructed by the Biden administration, the governor said: “I will not join the chorus of people in this country or in this chamber who eagerly look to slam shut an immigration door that was once open to our ancestors.” Pritzker then blamed Republicans in the United States Senate for not agreeing to what was nominally dubbed a border bill that tied more funding to Ukraine than the border and was negotiated in secret apart from Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla. “Why did every single Republican run away from something that they claimed they desperately wanted,” Pritzker asked a crowd of Illinois politicians. “Because Donald Trump told them to, and they’re afraid of him.” The Illinois governor also blamed Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for transporting migrants to Chicago and other sanctuary cities. But local conservative politicians say Pritzker is to blame for his state’s migrant crisis. “You can’t literally invite people to come here with this insane sanctuary state policy and then complain that we don’t have the resources when they arrive,” state Rep. Blaine Wilhour, R-Beecher City, said after the governor’s address. Pritzker also outlined that part of the proposed funding would go to transitioning illegal migrants from temporary shelters to permanent housing. State Rep. Ryan Spain, R-Peoria, however, said there are better uses for the state’s budget. He said that “$2.8 billion dollars of state of Illinois spending” is going to “undocumented immigrant healthcare or migrant assistance. It is a gigantic sum of money that is crowding out other spending priorities that I think are worthwhile.” Newsmax could not verify the figure but has contacted Spain for comment. Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Tony McCombie, R-Savanna, has called for a statewide moratorium on accepting migrants, citing high expenses.)
— CPAC Enforces New Rule Barring Left-Wing Journalists – Jim Thomas (COMMENT: I have always fully disclosed that I am conservative. I attended many CPACs, although not recently, and reported on them as a journalist for GOPUSA. According to my Democrat and RINO critics/opponents, you are not a “real” journalist unless you claim to be nonpartisan. RINOs are anti-conservative. I should write a book about high-profile RINO event organizers in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, and in Wheaton who have barred me from attending their events and/or have had me thrown out of their events since 2000.)
https://www.newsmax.com/amp/politics/cpac-rule-gop/2024/02/21/id/1154466/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), chaired by Matt Schlapp of the American Conservative Union, has implemented a significant policy change, disallowing credentials for left-wing journalists, reported Mediaite. Schlapp stated, “CPAC has a new rule. If you’re a propagandist, you can buy a ticket, like everyone else, but you’re not in the media, and we’re not going to credential you by saying you’re in the media.” He criticized certain media outlets for their alleged anti-Trump and anti-conservative stance, asserting that such bias undermines the credibility of journalism. Schlapp announced this decision as the conference commenced near Washington, D.C., igniting reactions and discussions about media access and bias. In a conversation with Schlapp, Steve Bannon articulated concerns about what he perceives as biased reporting, accusing some journalists of engaging in “information warfare.” In response, Schlapp highlighted a perceived trend of targeting conservatives with unfavorable coverage, emphasizing a need for increased discernment in media accreditation. Acknowledging the existence of left-wing journalists who provide balanced coverage, Schlapp maintained that CPAC’s decision aims to address what he sees as pervasive bias within the media landscape. He cited instances where journalists selectively target conservatives, contributing to what he described as a hostile environment for those with differing viewpoints. Responding to questions regarding CPAC’s evolving identity and criticism of its increasingly MAGA-centric focus, Schlapp defended the conference’s trajectory. He dismissed concerns over relevance and emphasized a commitment to principles aligned with the conservative movement. Additionally, Schlapp shared an exchange between his wife and a Huffington Post reporter who was denied credentials, expressing satisfaction with what he described as a reaction from “leftist propagandists” who expected preferential treatment as a “real” journalist. “But as we know what’s happened to these corporate media entities is they’re 100%. If you listen to MSNBC, it’s 100% anti-Trump, anti-American, anti-conservative every moment of every day. They never have any kind of honest treatment of anything,” Schlapp said.)

DESERET NEWS
— A closer look at which states best represent America — and which fall short. Survey says Utah is furthest from the overall representation of the U.S., while Illinois is closest. – Emma Pitts (COMENT: Those who have the following demographics vote for Democrats: liberal, minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, unmarried, poor, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or have ancestors who have not been in America for a long time. Because voters who have the aforesaid demographics vote for Democrats and because Illinois voters overwhelmingly vote for Democrats, Illinois voters must overwhelmingly have the aforesaid demographics. Those who vote for Democrats overwhelmingly promote dependency on government and charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, diminishment of Second Amendment rights, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, and age discrimination and that is exactly what Democrat Illinois elected official promote. If you backed out Chicago voters, and especially if you backed out Collar County voters too, Illinois would be to the right of Utah. In the 2022 Illinois gubernatorial election, Republican Bailey won in all but 17 of Illinois’ 102 counties.)
https://www.deseret.com/2024/2/21/24079255/united-states-represent-electoral-presidential-candidates-caucuses
(FROM THE ARTICLE: No single state can perfectly represent the United States in all aspects due to the country’s vast diversity, but Illinois had a “94% similarity when all demographics are averaged.” “It’s most similar in terms of gender, age, the share of residents born in the U.S. and the unemployment rate, with more than 99% similarity for each of those metrics,” according to the survey. Regarding representation, Utah ranked last place in the following categories, making it an atypical representation of the country: Religious composition of adults. Wealth gap. Age characteristics. However, every state contributes uniquely to the nation’s fabric, and the concept of being the “worst” or “best” representative is largely subjective and dependent on the measures used for comparison.)

INSIDE HIGHER EDUCATION
— More Than Half of Recent 4-Year College Grads Underemployed. A new report found that many recent graduates don’t land jobs that require a degree. – Sara Weissman (COMMENT: I did not get a job that really required a bachelor’s degree in business until 10 months after I graduated from NIU in 1970 because I was viewed as being draft bait and because of my bad demographics (conservative, Republican, White, male, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844). The Democrats who ran IRS in 1971 hired me as a GS-7 (currently $54,728/year) Revenue Officer because they could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, or someone whose ancestors had not been in America for a long time who would take the job. They would never have hired me if I had not taken and passed the Federal Service Entrance Examination in 1970.)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— Government shouldn’t have the power to discriminate based on race – Julian Adorney (COMMENT: Life is a zero-sum-game. To give preference to one group is to discriminate against another group. To give preference to minorities and/or females is to discriminate against Whites and/or males. My Democrat superiors in the federal government used Affirmative Action and DEI big time to give preference to their Democrat employees who were minority and/or female. Ever-increasingly, to get more votes from minorities and/or females, Democrat and RINO politicians use DEI to give preference to minorities and/or females.)
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/2861205/government-shouldnt-have-the-power-to-discriminate-based-on-race/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In his new book The End of Race Politics, Coleman Hughes takes aim at the spread of diversity, equity, and inclusion ideology in the U.S. government. Instead of DEI that discriminates on the basis of race, he argues, we should adopt colorblindness as a national policy. What is colorblindness? Hughes defines it this way: “We should treat people without regard to race, both in our public policy and in our private lives.” One reason to adopt colorblindness as a national policy is that the government cannot be trusted with such a weighty power as picking and choosing which skin colors to favor and which ones to disadvantage. The government’s race-based classifications are completely arbitrary. Hughes notes that the current five racial categories (black, Hispanic, white, Asian/Pacific Islander, Native American/Alaska Native) were developed by the Carter administration and are enormously inconsistent. For example, Pakistanis are considered to be Asian. But Afghans right next door are considered to be white. The arbitrariness with which these lines were drawn isn’t fixable; it’s baked into the cake. Race is a social construct and is at least somewhat fuzzy, so racial categorization means the government will inevitably rely on crude measures to try to decide who fits into which bucket. . .There’s an even bigger problem: History shows that governments can’t be trusted with the power to discriminate. Slavery was the law of the land for 89 years (1776-1865), and Jim Crow for another 100 (1865-1965). For most of our nation’s history, the U.S. government wielded its power to place a boot on the neck of people of a specific skin color. A mere six years ago, then-president Donald Trump was reported as referring to Haiti and African nations as “s***hole countries” from which we shouldn’t want more immigrants. Is this really the government that social justice warriors want to endow with the power to make more decisions on the basis of race? This point should be especially salient for proponents of DEI. Ibram X. Kendi, one of the most popular advocates of DEI in the United States, proposed the creation of a new Department of Anti-Racism with totalitarian powers to police Americans’ speech and actions. But in How to Be An Antiracist, Kendi said that the United States has “stage four” racism (comparable to stage four cancer). He says racism and white supremacy have “spread to nearly every part of the body politic.” If the United States is as irredeemably racist as he claims, who does he imagine will end up staffing his new Department of Anti-Racism? Where will he find the saints necessary to discriminate in the “right” way rather than use their enormous powers to discriminate the “wrong” way? Hughes notes that the civil rights movement and the abolitionist movement fought for the idea that our government should be colorblind. The abolitionist Wendell Phillips said in a speech in 1867, “When once the nation is absolutely, irrevocably pledged to the principle that there shall be no recognition of race by the United States or by State law, then the work of the great anti-slavery movement which commenced in 1831, is accomplished.”)

The downpayment came from what earned a) working for IRS for 15 months, b) working part-time for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights for 18 months, and c) working full-time for that store for 7 months before that. That money also enabled me to buy a new Corvette in 1971 and to pay tuition for graduate business courses at Loyola in 1972. In today’s dollars, my IRS salary was $54,728/year in 1971 and $66,942/year in 1972.)
https://www.heritage.org/markets-and-finance/commentary/scranton-joe-and-the-temple-doom-spending
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Millions of young Americans seem to have given up on their economic future, turning instead to “doom spending.” Adults under 30 are moving back in with their parents at rates not seen since the Great Depression, giving up on the American dream of homeownership. So long as the uniparty in D.C. keeps spending like there’s no tomorrow, America’s youth will believe there’s no tomorrow for them.)

None of those leaders came to my defense when Democrat and RINO leaders a) ended my service as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks in 2021, b) gerrymandered my precinct in 2015, c) ended my service as the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman in 2012, d) ended my service as the MTRO webmaster in 2010 and 2004, e) ended my service as an Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee member in 2007, or f) almost got ICRC to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters in 2006.

Employers do not want employees like me who fight political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. Employers do not employees like me who have sued their employers. Employers do not want employees like me who they cannot manipulate or dominate. Employers do not want employees like me who will not cover up their wrong doing. Employers do not want employees like me who will not discriminate against anyone including those who are conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time. Employers want cheap labor. In today’s dollars, my ending GAO salary was $150,075/year. Employers want employees who help them meet their Affirmative Action and DEI quotas, goals, and targets.)

GAO audits IRS. In 1980, I was one of the last Republicans GAO hired. GAO forced me to take a $22,996/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO, gave me bad job assignments and unfair performance expectations and appraisals, delayed my promotions and never promoted me beyond GS-13, kept me off audits of IRS except 1986-1988, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and forced me to take its early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old even though I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, became a licensed CPA in 1981, earned professional certifications in 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997, and earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— FRONT PAGE: 62% of Americans Lack a College Degree. Can They Solve the Labor Shortage? IBM, Delta and others have dropped college degree requirements but old hiring habits are hard to break. – Lauren Weber (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran the federal government for almost 30 years (Post Office 1966-1969, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997), they ever-increasingly lowered hiring, retention, and promotion requirements and used Affirmative Action and DEI to hire, retain, and promote more Democrats. Consequently, all my coworkers who they promoted over me were Democrat DEI hires a) who had less work experience than I had, b) who had less education than I had, c) who had no professional certifications or fewer than I had, and/or d) who had no professional license like the one I had. Virtually all of them were minorities and/or females. Consequently, that ever-increasingly rendered WORTHLESS my job-related bachelor’s degree (NIU-1970), three master’s degrees (Loyola-1976, DePaul-1980, and IIT-1997), six professional certifications (1979, 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997), and professional license (1981). It is called political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)
https://www.wsj.com/lifestyle/careers/employers-open-more-doors-to-workers-without-degrees-but-few-are-getting-in-732f1098
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Facing a long-term labor shortage, employers are looking to expand the pool of potential workers. One group—people without a college degree—holds particular promise. They make up nearly two-thirds of the U.S. population over 25, and traditionally have been ineligible for many managerial and technical positions. A push by some companies to eliminate degree requirements has opened the door to more candidates. Yet the share of jobs that went to those candidates barely budged after the requirement was lifted, according to a new analysis. There are several explanations for the plodding progress, from automated screening tools that favor college graduates to the difficulty of changing hiring managers’ long-held beliefs about the value of a bachelor’s degree. Many employers say they know time and demographics aren’t on their side. Baby boomers are aging out of the workforce, U.S. birthrates are low, and shifting immigration policies make it difficult to count on reinforcements from abroad. Meanwhile, college enrollment is on the decline. Only 38% of Americans over age 25 have at least a bachelor’s degree. . .Over the past few years, major employers such as medical device maker Medtronic, IBM, Delta, Google, Walmart and General Motors have eliminated degree requirements from hundreds of their job postings. They are among the early members of a movement known as skills-based hiring, where employers evaluate job candidates on their skills rather than their education. “If you’re putting unnecessary requirements on jobs, you’re automatically removing 62% of the population that could apply,” said Kelli Jordan, vice president of growth and development at IBM, one of the first employers to adopt skills-based hiring.)

FORBES
— Ever-increasingly, according to Democrat and RINO leaders, no one is in America illegally. According to Democrat and RINO leaders, all you have to do to be in America legally is to claim asylum, refugee, or parole status. Constructively, Democrat and RINO leaders have abolished America’s borders. Constructively, Democrat and RINO leaders have destroyed America.

MONEYWISE
— 65% of parents are still supporting their millennial children – Sebrina Wex (COMMENT: I should write a book about my critics/opponents whose parents are/were filthy rich. How much money do/did your parents have/had? My critics/opponents have always falsely painted my parents as having been filthy rich because they sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod. But in fact, my father never earned more than $50,000/year in today’s dollars. He almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. Because my parents lacked money, I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964 to buy a 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air in 1964. I washed dishes and delivered newspapers 1964-1966 to buy a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in 1966. I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966 and delivered mail 1966-1967 to pay my UIC expenses and buy a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 in 1967. I delivered mail in 1968 to pay for my UIC expenses and buy a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE in 1968. I delivered mail in 1969 to pay for my NIU expenses 1969-1970.)

GOVERNMENT EXECUTIVE
— The GOP wants to bring back pay-for-performance – NATHAN ABSE (COMMENT: The Democrats who run GAO have used pay-for-performance (PFP) since 1989. My Democrat GAO superiors always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for PFP purposes. They used the extreme subjectivity in their performance appraisal system. They gave me bad job assignments and unfair performance expectations and appraisals. They turned my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates against me. The aforesaid took place while a) I served on the Executive Committee of the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter 1989-1996, b) became a Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, Certified Government Financial manager in 1994, Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and Forensic Accountant in 1997, and c) earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)
