January 28, 2024

Democrat and RINO leaders have opened Pandora’s Box. The illegal immigration they promote will ever-increasingly increase. Democrat leaders will continue to flood America with illegals at least until they have enough illegals using their false identifications to vote for Democrats that no Republican will ever be elected again. RINO leaders will continue to flood America with illegals at least until they have all the cheap labor that they can use. Countries that hate America will continue to flood America with their citizens until they have destroyed America. Constructively, if not literally, Democrat and RINO leaders have abolished America’s borders. By claiming asylum, refugee, or parole status, all the citizens of all of the countries of the world can come into America “legally” and stay in American “legally.” Because Democrat and RINO leaders ever-increasingly promote more illegal immigration but falsely deny it, a) Trump will be elected, b) the Senate will turn Republican, c) the House will stay Republican, and d) steps will be taken to save America.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/editorials/2821039/huge-loss-for-dei-in-federal-court/
(FROM THGE ARTICLE: When even a liberal federal judge appointed by former President Barack Obama rules that diversity, equity, and inclusion practices can be illegal, it is time to recognize that most DEI regimes by design are invidiously discriminatory. In a case that received too little attention, Judge Wendy Beetlestone of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania ruled this month that former Pennsylvania State University professor Zack De Piero had reasonable grounds to keep alive a lawsuit against the school based on its DEI practices. De Piero said DEI policies at the college essentially forced his resignation, and Beetlestone agreed the professor “plausibly alleged that he was subjected to a race-based hostile work environment.” . . . Those conditions were created explicitly by the university’s DEI policies and practices. For example, on five different occasions, the university required De Piero “to attend conferences or trainings that discussed racial issues in essentialist and deterministic terms — ascribing negative traits to white people or white teachers without exception and flowing inevitably from their race.” In one exercise after the Minnesota police killing of counterfeiter George Floyd, the instructor forced “White and non-Black people of color to hold [their breath] just a little longer [than black people] — to feel the pain.” If literally being forced to feel pain because one is white isn’t racially discriminatory, nothing is. But that was only one example. In another instance, De Piero said the facilitator “condemn[ed] white people for no other reason than they spoke or were simply present while being white.” Meanwhile, he said, university officials specifically told him “to incorporate race into his grading” in a way that would “penalize [white] students academically on the basis of their race.” And it is incontrovertible that Penn State’s DEI director “sent an email to all employees ‘calling on white people’ to ‘feel terrible,’ about their ‘own internalized white supremacy.”)

But notwithstanding the aforesaid, in 1978, my Democrat IRS superiors suddenly disallowed the aforesaid courses immediately after Money Magazine published its February 4-page article on me. In that article, Money Magazine strongly and falsely painted my deductions as being improper. Money Magazine strongly and falsely hinted/implied/argued/shouted a) that the courses were not job-related, b) that the courses did not help me carry out my job duties, c) that I took the courses to qualify myself for a new trade or business, and d) that I took the courses to get a job in the private sector.)

— The Psychology of Multicultural Identity. Analyzing identity through the lives of Kamala Harris and Nikki Haley. – Dinesh Sharma Ph.D. (COMMENT: What are your demographics? What do Haley supporters think of you? All my ancestors immigrated from what is now Germany during the 1840s and 1850s. Did your ancestors serve in the Union Army? Mine did not. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used that against me. In defense of my ancestors, I have always stressed a) that all of them lived only in northeast Illinois, b) that on my father’s side, they were lowly famers in southeast Crete Township, and c) that on my mother’s side, they were lowly sharecroppers in Grant Park along the Indiana border.)
https://www.psychologytoday.com/au/blog/leaders-in-the-making/202401/the-psychology-of-multicultural-identity
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Governor Nikki Haley, on the other hand, belongs to a family of warriors, continuing the Sikh tradition of her people; her husband, Michael Haley, and brother, Mitti Randhawa, have served in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. She was the first female governor of South Carolina; she also took down the Confederate flag after the shooting of Black parishioners at Emanuel African Methodist Church in 2015 by a White nationalist. She served as the UN secretary under Trump, who is now spreading a “birther controversy” about her name not being American enough. Yet she has steadfastly claimed that the U.S. is not a racist country. She once checked on her voter registration card that she was “White” when the census classifications were not clear about the “Asian” category on the census form. She has tried to balance the nativist vision of American exceptionalism prevalent in her party with her Indian heritage. Governor Nikki Haley exemplifies what psychologists have identified as an assimilationist view of identity, where the majoritarian White identity dominates the life narrative, while other minority identifications are subsumed underneath. How is it that Governor Nikki Haley, who was the governor of a state where the Civil War started, could forget about the root causes of America’s bloody history? I have a sneaking suspicion as to why she didn’t mention slavery. The party of Lincoln may now want to reassess the history of the Civil War under their new leadership. However, there is a silver lining in all this. Only in America can we witness two first-generation immigrant female candidates, vying for the top job, who are, to quote Thomas Paine, trying “to start the world over again.”)

A new report says city eateries had trouble finding workers last summer, with 82% of them short at least one kitchen staffer. Local owners say things have started to improve, but food and labor costs are still a concern. – Audrey Hettleman (COMMENT: I washed dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresge in Chicago Heights part-time during my junior and senior years at Crete-Monee High School 1964-1966 and full-time during the summer in between. Since 1964, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have used that against me to paint me as being an unmitigated loser. They hint/imply/argue/shout that they never would have stooped to take job like I took. In my defense, with the money I earned and saved washing dishes, I bought a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in May of 1966.

https://www.dailyherald.com/20240126/news/homeless-man-convicted-of-raping-woman-on-prairie-path-near-wheaton/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A 44-year-old homeless man was convicted Thursday evening of raping a woman on the Illinois Prairie Path (in) Wheaton almost six years ago. Following a three-day trial and less than three hours of deliberation, a jury found Robert Davison guilty of multiple counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault and one count of unlawful restraint. Davison has been in custody at the DuPage County jail since his arrest in May of 2018. Wheaton police began investigating the attack just after midnight on May 18, 2018, when a woman was heard screaming for help near the PADS shelter in Wheaton. The woman had dirt on her face and cuts to her upper body. The woman told investigators she had been approached by Davison along the Prairie Path who “demanded sex from her.” When she refused, she said Davison dragged her into a wooded area by the hair and sexually assaulted her. Davison fled after the attack, but was located two days later, authorities said. Davison is scheduled back in court March 7 for a pre-sentencing hearing. He faces up to 90 years in prison.)

https://www.journal-topics.com/articles/park-ridge-takes-compassionate-approach-should-any-migrants-arrive/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While no known arrivals of asylum seekers have occurred in Park Ridge, the city has put together a plan that would become effective if a bus load of migrants are suddenly dropped off in the city. Park Ridge leaders have decided not to enact an ordinance that would impose fines on bus companies and their drivers for allowing migrants to disembark in the city without prior notice. Instead, City Manager Joe Gilmore said, an “Emergency Management Plan” has been put together that directs that Park Ridge will “compassionately facilitate transportation (of migrants) to the city of Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications.” The plan lays out procedures the city and police department will follow should a drop off occur. In cases where migrants have been dropped off in Park Ridge without the city’s knowledge, “they should be sheltered at either the Dee Road or Uptown Metra station (whichever is closest).” From there, local police will contact the Metra Police Department and assist in getting people on the next inbound train to Chicago. In instances where a bus carrying migrants has not yet dropped off their passengers, the police “should request that the passengers remain on the bus for routing to the city of Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications.” According to Gilmore, city officials have studied the migrant issue for a lengthy period of time which for many suburbs has triggered ordinances that penalize bus companies and drivers that arrive in their communities unannounced. Most of those towns say they do not have the resources to shelter and feed asylum seekers. Local ordinances have been approved in neighboring Des Plaines and Rosemont. “The plan is high-level and fluid, and discussed frequently by city staff,” continued Gilmore. He explained that the city’s staff has communicated with other suburbs about their experiences. He added that a recent survey of the Northwest Municipal Conference revealed that a majority of its 46 members have not adopted ordinances that restrict unscheduled bus stops within their borders. “Park Ridge staff discussed this option, and engaged the city attorney, and staff concluded that this is not an effective option, at this time. We continue to monitor the situations and options.” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott about two years ago implemented the program of transporting asylum seekers, most of whom have entered the U.S. through Texas, to Northern locations that have declared themselves sanctuary cities. The city of Chicago considers itself a sanctuary city. Many people believe that Abbott created the program to dump migrants in cities as a way of showing the problems his state is wrestling with. In its Emergency Plan, Park Ridge police will provide “address, guidance, and/or escort to the Chicago location where migrants are given food and shelter. “The city of Park Ridge, like every Chicagoland municipality facing this crisis, does not have the resources or infrastructure necessary to accommodate individuals on a long-term basis,” said the city’s Emergency Plan.)

Yandle and Judge David W.

https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/3883986-new-executive-order-will-expand-race-preferences-throughout-the-federal-government/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Individuals should be treated as individuals and not on the basis of their membership in racial groups, especially by our government. Unfortunately, a new executive order encourages federal agencies to focus on racial group identity rather than the character and qualifications of employees and contractors. It will result in racial quotas in hiring, procuring, and even using artificial intelligence throughout the government. The executive order’s stated goal is advancing racial equity throughout the federal government. The word “equity” appears 21 times. The order brims with talk about “new action plans to advance equity,” “extending and strengthening equity-advancing requirements for agencies,” and requires agencies to convene “Equity Teams” charged with ensuring that their agencies are “delivering equitable outcomes.” While equity sounds similar to “equality,” the two concepts are quite different. A Biden campaign video narrated by Vice President Kamala Harris nicely sums up the difference, indicating that the administration uses “equality” to mean that each individual is given the same opportunities. “Equity,” on the other hand, seeks to achieve equal outcomes.)

Hopcroft (COMMENT: Under the Democrats and under the RINOs, Republicans who are White and/or male are ever-increasingly paid less than Democrats and RINOs who are minority and/or female. I am Republican, White, and male. I worked for Democrats 1964-1997. In today’s dollars, the most I was ever paid was $150,075/year. If I had been a Democrat, minority, or female, I would have been paid much more than that, at least $191,900/year in today’s dollars. I earned three job-related master’s degrees. I earned six job-related professional certifications. I earned a job-related professional license. All my coworkers who my superiors promoted over me were Democrats who had a) less work experience than I had, b) less education than I had, c) fewer or no professional certifications than I had, and/or d) no professional license. Virtually all of them were minorities and/or females. It is called political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)
https://ifstudies.org/blog/making-good-men-harder-to-find-how-changing-wealth-inequality-affects-marriage-patterns
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Lots of things affect how hard it is to find a spouse. Local sex ratios are an example. For instance, in Alaska, where there are many more men than women, it is harder for a man to find a wife than a woman to find a husband. Something else that affects how hard it is for someone to find a spouse are preferences. If a person will only accept someone as a spouse who has characteristics that few people have, then it will hard for that person to find a spouse. In a recent paper published in Evolution and Human Behavior, Robert Brooks and coauthors used computer simulation models to mimic how different wealth characteristics of individuals influence the outcome of marriage markets. Their models simulated a population of one million men and one million women encountering each other and pairing off if they met a partner who met their specification for wealth. All the simulated men and women had a wealth characteristic that was distributed normally in the population, with a certain mean and standard deviation. That is, some men and women were rich, some were poor and most were in between, with the amount of inequality measured by the standard deviation of wealth. The women had the greater requirements for a spouse—they would only pair with a man they encountered of equal or greater wealth than themselves. The men had the least requirements for a spouse—they would pair with a woman they encountered who was willing to pair with them.)

January 26, 2024

Democrat and RINO leaders want America to officially stop enforcing its immigration laws, that is, to let all those who come into America stay in America forever if they claim asylum, refugee, parole, etc. status. That will elect Trump.

If/when Democrats and/or RINOs try to officially make your county, your township, your municipality, and/or your school district official sanctuaries for illegals, who will lead the fight against that? I will lead the fight against that in DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, and Wheaton Warrenville School District 200. Previously, in Wheaton, I successfully led fights against video gambling and pot.

Wheaton is holding a special meeting on bus regulations Monday, January 29, 2024, 7:00 PM.

I ask that the following speak out against Democrat/RINO orchestrated illegal immigration: a) the leaders of the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), b) your representative on the IRP State Central Committee, c) the leaders of your county/township/ward Republican party organizations, d) your Republican congressman, state senator, and state representative, e) the Republican leaders of your county, township, municipality, and school district, f) the candidates on the March 19, 2024 Republican primary ballot in your precinct, g) conservative leaders and activists in your area, and h) religious leaders and activists in your area.

— Orland Park officially declares it is not a sanctuary city – Jeff Vorva
https://southwestregionalpublishing.com/2024/01/19/orland-park-officially-declares-it-is-not-a-sanctuary-city/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For years, Orland Park Mayor Keith Pekau has been saying the village is a non-sanctuary municipality. On January 15, the board of trustees made it official. The board voted 6-0, with Joni Radaszewski absent, on an ordinance declaring that the village will not be a sanctuary city. In past meetings, Pekau said that allowing migrants into the community was unfair to the residents of the community and unfair to the migrants themselves as Orland Park is not equipped to handle them. He added that sanctuary cities go against federal law even though it’s being encouraged on the state and county level. “We are clearly not a sanctuary city,” Pekau said. “We will not aid and abet the state, the county, or the city of Chicago in violating federal law. “And it’s really unfortunate that we have to pass something like this. We shouldn’t really have to say that we need to pass an ordinance saying we’re going to follow federal law. But it seems like in this current environment, we do.” On the problems caused by migrants and illegal immigrants, Pekau paraphrased former President Ronald Reagan. “The beauty of America is that if you come here from somewhere else you can become an American,” Pekau said. “No other country takes people in, and they become Americans like America does. “But it must be done legally and it seems absolutely nuts that we have to pass an ordinance that we will follow U.S. law. Now Chicago has reached out and asked us to help them violate federal law.” The mayor said that there is $450 billion being spend nationally on “non-citizens illegally crossing our borders” and that money can be better spent on the local level.)

— Naperville migrants: City scraps plan for residents to house new arrivals
https://abc7chicago.com/naperville-migrants-illinois-in-chicago-migrant-housing/14361376/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Naperville is not moving forward with a plan to have residents house migrants in their homes. The city was considering putting together a list of residents willing to bring migrants into their homes. But city staff decided there are other state and federal agencies putting together lists of shelters to house migrants, so it’s not necessary for Naperville residents to pitch in. The decision came just one week from Chicago’s deadline for when migrants will start being evicted from shelters. The city said it’s continuously looking at that 60-day shelter stay policy, but no changes in the eviction date have been announced.)

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE WITH PICTURE: Naperville will not consider volunteer list for housing migrants – Alicia Fabbre
https://www.dailyherald.com/20240125/news/naperville-will-not-consider-volunteer-list-for-housing-migrants/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a memo to city council members Wednesday, Naperville City Manager Doug Krieger said the city received significant feedback following a Jan. 16 city council meeting where Councilman Josh McBroom suggested the idea. At that time, city staff was directed to look into the suggestion and report back to the council. “Based on initial staff research, migrant housing lists are currently being maintained by government agencies at the federal and state level, as well as through private charities,” Krieger writes in the memo. “As a result, it has been determined that it is not necessary for further city consideration and therefore this matter will not appear on a future city council agenda.” The message will be part of a “manager’s memorandum” expected to be posted to the city’s website, city spokeswoman Linda LaCloche said. At the Jan. 16 council meeting, McBroom floated the idea of a volunteer list of residents willing to house migrants and had the support of three council members – Nate Wilson, Jennifer Bruzan-Taylor and Paul Leong – to have staff look into the suggestion and report back to the council at a later date. Though McBroom said last week he was sincere in his proposal, he said Thursday the suggestion was a “polite challenge” to those who support an open border policy. “It was a sincere challenge because the city of Chicago clearly cannot handle this crisis anymore, and they’re putting pressure on the cities,” McBroom said. “The way I see it, we’ve got one of two options. Individuals can contact their state representatives to pressure them to get the border secure. Or, if you supported this policy and you believe an open border is a good policy, then are you willing to house a migrant family? There are a lot of them who are homeless right now in the dead of winter.” McBroom’s proposal quickly drew national attention, and McBroom on Thursday appeared on a Fox News program. It also sparked a flurry of emails to council members with reactions ranging from outrage from conservatives who blasted McBroom, a Republican, for suggesting people house new arrivals to a local church inquiring how families could help. McBroom brushed off some of the reaction from fellow conservatives, saying he could “take a few arrows” and said his challenge at least got people talking. Others, however, didn’t see his actions in the same light. “I don’t appreciate Naperville becoming a national laughing stock or just being used for political points,” Councilman Ian Holzhauer said. As the city faced increased scrutiny, Mayor Scott Wehrli said he had a discussion with McBroom late last week about his proposal. “I suggested to him if he had a change of heart, he should contact the city manager and let him know,” Wehrli said. McBroom on Thursday acknowledged he contacted Krieger about the proposal and asked to have it removed from future agendas. Wilson, who initially supported the measure, also requested the same. Krieger reached out to Taylor and Leong, who also supported ending further inquiry and removing it from the agenda. According to council policy, the support of three council members is needed to add an item to the agenda. To remove an item, two of those council members must support its removal. Wehrli, who said he did not support McBroom’s initial proposal, said the city will continue to ensure the safe passage of new arrivals to the landing zone in Chicago. Residents who want to help new arrivals are encouraged to visit chicago.gov.)

— McBroom: ‘I haven’t had a single person’ in Naperville sign up to house illegal aliens
https://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/653885165-mcbroom-i-haven-t-had-a-single-person-in-naperville-sign-up-to-house-illegal-aliens
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Naperville City Council Member Josh McBroom said he hasn’t had any Naperville residents volunteer to house illegal aliens who have moved to the Chicagoland area. McBroom made the comments Thursday on AM 560’s Chicago’s Morning Answer with Dan Proft and Amy Jacobson. “It’s weird. During the last presidential race, we had thousands of Biden signs in Naperville. We’ve got houses all over town that advertise support for this mass migration of illegals. They say ‘no human is illegal,” McBroom said. “Since I’ve proposed this, I’ve haven’t had a single person ask me, ‘Where’s the sign-up sheet. I want to sign the sign-up sheet, I’m ready to sign my house up for the signup sheet’ It’s shocking.” “These are the people that voted for this. We’ve got thousands of illegals coming into the area. And they’re homeless— in the middle of winter,” McBroom said. ”You voted for this. You sign up. Be the change. Open your house. At the Jan. 16 Naperville City Council Meeting, McBroom suggested the city create a “signup sheet” whereby residents who support illegal immigration to the Chicagoland area could volunteer to house now homeless illegal aliens to live with them. “We hear from people that we should do more,” McBroom said. “We do have a very affluent community, a lot of big homes.” McBroom earned his Bachelor’s degree from Purdue University. He and his wife Emily settled in Naperville in 2001. McBroom is a Financial Advisor and owner of McBroom Financial Group in Naperville. He was elected to the Naperville city council in 2023. His current council term ends in 2027.)

https://afn.net/politics-govt/2024/01/25/reparations-resolution-lists-130-reasons-for-handing-out-14-trillion/
(COMMENT: Reacting to the resolution, GianCarlo Canaparo of the Heritage Foundation says the resolution claims slavery created “lasting harm” on black Americans. Among the poorest Americans, he says, there was little difference between struggling blacks and whites through most of the 20th century until the 1960s. Echoing a view of many others, such as black economist Thomas Sowell, Canaparo says the structure of the black family changed for the worse when President Lyndon Johnson introduced his “war on poverty” in 1964. What was supposed to end dependence on government instead created what is now known was the “welfare state” that hurt black families the most. “It is the family, staying in the family above all else,” Canaparo says, “that determines your economic, educational success in America.” Bush, 47, fits that description herself. The daughter of a local politician, Errol Bush, she graduated from a private Catholic prep school then graduated from nursing school.)

FEDERATION FOR AMERICAN IMMIGRATION REFORM
— Immigration Now a Zero-Sum Game (COMMENT: Everything is a zero-sum game. Everything given to members of one group is not given to members of another group. All my coworkers who my Democrat superiors promoted over me were Democrats a) who had less work experience than I had, b) who had less education than I had, c) who had fewer or no professional certifications, and/or d) who had no professional license. Virtually all of them were female and/or minority. It is called political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)
https://www.fairus.org/blog/2024/01/16/immigration-now-zero-sum-game
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Sheer volumes of admissions now exceed national need, capacity, and manageability — a far cry from a rational, and limited, immigration approach designed to aggregate national purpose with mutual benefits. Instead, today’s immigration has often become a zero-sum game, the proposition that a gain for one side entails a corresponding loss for the other side…notably each and every American. Of course, it’s been evident for a long time; FAIR has been reporting regularly on the rising cost and impact of immigration. But while politicians have been able to conveniently ignore consequences and “kick the can” down the road for decades, the money is now running out, space is unavailable, and social resources are drained. The result has been a marked increase in the immediate shifting of resources and a displacement of Americans to accommodate surging migrant needs.)

ZERO HEDGE
— Cultural Replacement: Why The Immigration Crisis Is Being Deliberately Engineered – TYLER DURDEN
https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/cultural-replacement-why-immigration-crisis-being-deliberately-engineered
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Cultural Replacement Theory “Replacement Theory” is often denigrated by the media as a racist conspiracy held by white people who are “afraid to lose power.” This is nonsensical for a number of reasons, including the fact that if “white people” were a monolith and we had all the power, then we would simply snuff out any threats to that power and lock down our borders. There would be nothing anyone could do to stop us. The truth is, there is no white monolith, there is no patriarchy and there is no such thing as systemic racism. Do some leftist activists clamor for mass migration to replace white people in the US and Europe? Absolutely. They call it “decolonization.” Is this the real purpose of mass migration? Probably not. The replacement going on is not so much about replacing white people as it is about replacing western culture. The goal, I believe, is to open the floodgates to foreign elements because most of them come from more socialist systems that have no understanding of individual freedom. In this way, the establishment can dilute the American culture of independence and use the tyranny of the majority (democracy) to erase our values and principles forever. This is why you will hear Biden and his ilk constantly pontificate on “democracy” and the “defense of democracy’ and the conservative “threat to democracy.” This is very deliberate terminology. When they say “democracy”, they are talking about the rule of the mob; the tyranny of the majority. They are talking about collectivism, socialism and ultimately authoritarianism for the “sake of the greater good.” Migrants are being used to phase out the pillars of western civilization. This is why the borders must be secured now and illegals must be kicked out of the country with haste. No martial law, no FEMA detention facilities, no amnesty, no asylum, no welfare and no subsidies. They just need to be removed and sent back to where they came from and if they return illegally they should be severely punished. In order for this to happen it would appear that southern states will have to enforce their own border security. But how to do this without federal interference? The American public will have to step in and step up to help states like Texas. The movement will have to be so overwhelming that the federal government is afraid to intervene. The shape of this secure border action will require trial and error, but as long as Texas is willing to continue arresting illegals and shipping them out of the country, all that is needed is a contingent of deputized Americans to help watch the border and catch people trying to cross. There may also be a need for people to defend border walls and fences from federal sabotage. Some will argue that this constitutes a violation, a defiance of federal authorities, and I would say yes, it is, and that’s a good thing. The Biden Administration is in dereliction of its duty to keep the country safe from foreign invasion. Doing nothing and leaving borders undefended from mass immigration is no different from refusing to defend the border from a foreign military. If the current trend is allowed to continue, the stage will be set for a host of emergencies that will be exploited to give elites the excuse to erase what constitutional protections we have left. This cannot be tolerated. It’s time to end it.)

https://www.corvsport.com/are-corvette-owners-old/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Many thought the revolutionary design of the C7 would help bring in the younger generation (and it did to some degree), but the average Corvette customer’s age in 2019 had still climbed to 61 years old. Heading into C8 production, individuals between 25 and 40 only accounted for 3% of sales.)

— Oregon county officials dismantle $1 million-a-year diversity office and now say they want to focus on merit. – HARRIET ALEXANDER (COMMENT: My critics/opponents promote diversity, that is, they reject merit, that is, they reject the equal opportunity plank in the Republican Party platform, that is, they promote patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. I would focus on those who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Pritzker on Monday said the Johnson administration had not told the state “where they would like us to put our resources” to build new shelters, “so we can’t help if they don’t identify those locations.” Johnson countered Wednesday that “the state has received a number of locations that they can build a shelter at.” He did not elaborate. But city officials said they have recommended to Pritzker’s administration potential sites outside Chicago, sometimes with specific buildings in mind, a notion the governor’s office disputes. “And you know, again, just keep in mind that the state of Illinois can build a shelter anywhere in the state of Illinois. So, the state does not have to build a shelter in Chicago,” he said.)

— With fundraising up, Illinois GOP may be turning a corner – Greg Hinz
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/politics/illinois-gop-may-be-turning-corner#/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Just in time for election season, the Illinois Republican Party is showing signs of life. A fundraiser set for next month not only is a sellout, with 740 tickets purchased for the Feb. 9 dinner at a Rosemont hotel, but has garnered more money than the party reported raising all of last year. Combined with an armistice of sorts between often feuding factions on the party’s central committee, the party appears to have taken at least initial steps to pull out of the funk it’s been in since former Gov. Bruce Rauner lost his re-election bid to Democrat J.B. Pritzker in November 2018. Rauner moved to Florida shortly after the 2018 vote, followed soon by Citadel chief Ken Griffin. Both men and a couple of others, such as shipping mogul Dick Uihlein, had almost personally kept the party funded, writing large personal checks. With them gone and Pritzker easily winning a new term in 2022, income dried up, with the Illinois Republican Party reporting income of only $230,000 in 2023, according to Illinois State Board of Elections records. That has changed. The upcoming Rosemont event featuring U.S. Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana already has grossed “more than $300,000,” says party Chairman Don Tracy, a Springfield lawyer who took office after Rauner left the state. And with three weeks to go, the party has added as many seats as it can to the Rosemont venue and sold them all. “That’s the biggest event I can remember in many years,” said Tracy in a phone interview. “There’s a lot energy.” “Seven hundred people and $300,000 — that’s quite an accomplishment,” said former party Chair Pat Brady. The event appears to be the largest fundraiser for the state party since a host of presidential candidates showed up at a 2011 Chicago event honoring Ronald Reagan’s birthday, according to Brady. In an odd twist that also indicates some change, Tracy said much of the proceeds from the event will be used to amplify the Illinois GOP’s early- and absentee-vote efforts. Ergo the dinner’s “bank the vote” theme. Former President Donald Trump famously ridiculed such efforts after his 2020 loss, repeatedly charging that any votes not cast in person on Election Day were subject to massive fraud. Many party professionals later concluded that relying strictly on in-person votes ceded too much ground to Democrats, and Tracy said efforts to get the GOP back into the early-vote game this year have the blessing of not just the Republican National Committee but Trump himself. Despite the new money, Illinois Republicans face a daunting task this election cycle. They hold no statewide offices, are in no super-minority positions in the Illinois House and Senate, and likely presidential nominee Trump lost the state by a wide margin to Democratic nominees in 2020 and 2016. Trump heading the 2024 ticket “could be a headwind,” particularly in Chicago, where the party needs to do much better, Tracy said. Tracy has remained neutral in this GOP contest, with Richard Porter, the GOP national committeeman from Illinois, having backed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Regardless of who the party nominee is, “We’re going to be broad-based, on a wide range of issues. . . .We have a team,” Tracy said. Jeanne Ives, the former gubernatorial candidate and conservative who serves on the state party’s governing board, confirmed the group is more unified at the moment than it has been in recent years. “There’s a concerted team effort to turn the tide and make things better,” Ives said in a phone interview. Having a plan and the money to fund it “will help,” even in Illinois, she added.)

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2024/01/dei_making_college_unaffordable.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I graduated from college in the 1980s. I took my bachelor’s degree in 2.5 years by taking overloads—up to 22 credits–every semester, and full loads every summer and interim session, as well as a number of correspondence courses from another university when I had to have a class that wasn’t offered when I needed it. At that state college, my education cost a bit less than $10,000. I was an adult, paying my own freight, and needed to get back into the workforce as quickly as possible. I took out no student loans. Tuition then was a fraction of current college tuition. That was in part possible because the school had only the administrators it needed. There was one registrar, one President, and only necessary additional administrators. They all had full time jobs with at least eight hours of daily work. Deans were working professors, and virtually every English and music class—my disciplines–was taught by a full professor. Every teacher at that school taught a full class load. There was no such thing as DEI, CRT or wokeness in general. That’s not the way of things now.)

JOURNAL COURIER
— Some firearms owners worry state will step up action amid poor registration numbers – Ben Singson (COMMENT: Anticipate/expect that immediately after the next big mass shooting in Illinois, Pritzker will force county sheriffs and states attorneys to arrest and perp walk high-profile non-registrants in their counties who share Trump’s demographics: conservative, Republican, White, male, older, non-poor, non-veteran, married, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.myjournalcourier.com/news/article/republican-lawmakers-worry-possible-seizure-18617660.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some Republican state lawmakers are worried the state is going to escalate action against unregistered prohibited firearms in Illinois — including seizing them — though the governor’s office denies any such plan. Assistant Republican Leader Rep. C.D. Davidsmeyer, R-Murrayville, said he is concerned Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s administration would coordinate with Illinois State Police to begin confiscation of illegal weapons, including those now banned under the Protect Illinois Communities Act. “I believe it will happen, if it has not happened already,” he said. Davidsmeyer said he also is worried the government will withhold grants from local law enforcement agencies that did not enforce the assault weapons ban. Dozens of sheriffs have stepped forward to say they will not enforce the ban, a move Pritzker has said would put their jobs at risk. “Ultimately, my concern is that … because so many sheriffs have said they will not enforce this law,” Davidsmeyer said, “that the state will try to withhold all grants from local law enforcement because they’re not doing what the powers on high tell them they have to do.” A representative for the governor’s office said the claims are “all completely false.” The concerns come after few people registered guns classified as “assault weapons” with state police by the ban’s registration deadline. About 1.2% of all Firearm Owner Identification Card holders registered their guns between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31; an additional 5,867 were in the process Jan. 1-16 of completing an affidavit, according to state police. Davidsmeyer said he believes Pritzker will “say whatever politically he needs to say” to enact stronger measures against some firearms. Politicians are “afraid of doing … partial measures” because they want to be sponsored by pro-gun control groups, he said. “Unfortunately, the reality is (Pritzker) wants those guns,” Davidsmeyer said. “That’s it. I’m not saying this to scare anybody. He doesn’t believe people should have them so, at the end of the day, he hasn’t specifically said, ‘We’re going to come to your house and take your guns.'” A representative for Illinois State Police said officers must enforce all aspects of the criminal code, “including seizing unlawfully possessed weapons.” They must operate within the bounds of the Constitution, the Fourth Amendment and the local state’s attorney, the representative said.)

The moment also reminds me how I could have missed the opportunity to attend life-changing institutions if the current college admissions policies were in place then. The decision by the United States Supreme Court to repeal race-conscious admissions looms large. Affirmative action is not merely a policy; it’s a bridge to opportunities once unattainable.)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— Mayor Brandon Johnson’s administration is changing its strategy on managing the migrant crisis. – Shia Kapos
https://www.politico.com/newsletters/illinois-playbook
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Behind closed doors: The mayor met privately with small groups of aldermen Friday — keeping groups small avoids the pesky open meeting rules — to brief them on how the city will no longer set up new shelter space because the costs are too high. That means it won’t build industrial tents for migrants, either. Here’s a copy of the briefing report obtained by Playbook. New strategy: The city will work with churches and private individuals to find beds for asylum seekers. And as individuals leave any of the current shelters, beds will open for the next wave of migrants. And while the cold snap continues, the Harold Washington Library will serve as a warming center for some asylum seekers as well as for the already unhoused. The goal: Get asylum seekers into regular housing as soon as possible or send them back to the landing area, which is a shelter of sorts until beds open up in the current shelters. Getting folks out of shelters and into housing will be easier now that the state has staffed up case managers in nearly all of the city’s 28 shelters, the aldermen were told.)

In 2020, instead of using Illinois’ first day of legalization to warn of marijuana’s undisputed dangers, she celebrated the event as if it were the end of prohibition of apple pie. Her picture appeared on countless national stories from CNN to FOX, all smiles. “Illinois lieutenant governor beats long lines to become one of the first to legally buy weed in the state,” said the CNN headline.)

— JANUARY 01, 1989 FLASHBACK: IN SNOW, IT`S A CUL-DE-SOCKED – Blair Kamin (COMMENT: I have lived on Wheaton’s high-taxed 4-home Cove Court cul-de-sac since 1984. Yesterday, I learned that because of “budget constraints,” Wheaton no longer final plows its cul-de-sacs unless individual snows are more than 2-inches deep. That means that if a cul-de-sac is hit with multiple individual snows in a row, but each of them are less than 2-inches, no final plowing is done no matter how high the snow is piled up in the middle of the cul-de-sac, along the curb, and in front of driveways. I have appealed that final plowing policy to Wheaton’s City Manager. My 2018 Chevrolet Cruze LT has only a 6 1/2-inch ground clearance. Mountains of salt and hope for warm temperatures are not the answers. Per doctor’s orders, because on shoulder/arm injury, I am not supposed to shovel snow this winter.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-1989-01-01-8902220015-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Snow and the cul-de-sac do not mix. The Plow Man had cometh, and as she looked at what he`d left behind, Drake recalled the time a plow operator scooped up neighbors` trash and unloaded it near her front lawn. ”Don`t buy a house on a cul-de-sac unless you want to put up with all that,” said the 45-year-old resident of west suburban Naperville. Last week`s heavy snow reminded thousands of people that they pay a price for living on quiet streets with privacy and gently sweeping curves that are like a snowball heaved at Chicago`s no-nonsense street grid. From Naperville, which has about 700 cul-de-sacs, to northwest suburban Schaumburg, which has about 535 of the dead-end, turn-around streets, the price is paid in destroyed sod, buried mailboxes and driveways that get clogged after there`s no place left for plows to put the snow. ”Mother Nature abhors a void,” said Steven Kaar, operations and maintenance manager for the Naperville Department of Transportation. ”Unfortunately, it`s Mr. Jones` driveway.” The reason for the mess is that the typical snow-clearing vehicle in Naperville, a small pickup truck, isn`t powerful enough to push heavy snow where operators want it to go. In fact, it takes 7 to 10 times longer to clear a cul-de-sac than a through street, according to Naperville officials. That`s bad news for suburban taxpayers, wherever they live. Cul-de-sacs are ”several times more expensive” to clear than regular streets, according to Naperville City Manager Ralph DeSantis. Heavy snow also slows Postal Service carriers. Just try reaching out of your Jeep and putting a letter in a snow-encased mailbox. ”I`ll try and deliver it (to the door),” said mailman Tom Stafford, 35, as he headed down a Naperville cul-de-sac. ”I`ve done that at least 20 times today. And I`m only about two-thirds of the way through the route.” Such are the disadvantages of streets where children can play without fear of through traffic and parents don`t have to contend with noise. Homes usually sell for a little more because of the privacy of cul-de-sacs. It also doesn`t hurt that the streets are called cul-de-sacs. To be sure, cul-de-sac is French for ”dead end.” But French adds a touch of class in the same way that English names like Devonshire give snob appeal to little subdivisions on the prairie. Yet that has not rescued the cul-de-sac from being ranked behind arterial streets, major collector streets and local side streets on the snow-clearance priority lists of suburban traffic engineers. The engineers, who make their rankings on the basis of which street handles the most traffic, regularly hear from armchair critics. ”They neglect roads like this,” said 20-year-old John Delgado, a transplanted Californian who was house-sitting on a cul-de-sac in Naperville last week. ”Out here`s where it really matters. . . . People have to be able to get out of their house to get on the main road.” Suburban officials like to deflect such criticism by pointing out that cul-de-sacs may be more manageable than Chicago`s side streets. In the city, cars often cram both sides of the side streets-and wind up covered with snow after plowing. In contrast, it`s illegal to park on the street during certain night hours in some suburbs. But some residents can`t get their cars out of the driveway after a heavy snow. That`s because plows are supposed to dump snow into ”parkways,” the city-owned strips that are wedged between the sidewalk and the curb. But the parkways are filled with mailboxes, street lights, trees and fireplugs. Those obstacles often force plows to push snow into driveways and sidewalks. ”It`s not intentional and it`s not malicious,” said Naperville`s Kaar, sounding like one who has been accused of such sins. ”Again, it`s the law of physics. . . . You come up to a void and the plow fills that void.” Another problem: Plows often go out at night and during snowstorms, when it`s difficult to see. As a result, they sometimes go over the curb and gouge sod. That some suburbs pay for replacing sod underlines the fact that cul-de-sac power is not taken lightly. Naperville, for example, has at least 17,000 residents who live on cul-de-sacs, according to Kaar. That`s more than 20 percent of the suburb`s 79,805 people. The snow-clearing problem also has forced suburbs to purchase something called the articulated end-loader-a hulking, bulldozer-like contraption that bends in the middle like large city buses. That feature allows the loader to make a complete, uninterrupted turn around cul-de-sacs. But unlike the weak pickup truck, the loader has the power-most of the time-to put snow where it should go, officials said. There`s just one problem: The end loaders cost $65,000 to $80,000 apiece- compared to $15,000 for a pickup truck. As a result, Naperville and Schaumburg have only a handful of them. The fact that end-loaders can travel at only 18 m.p.h. also brings complaints from residents who think it takes too long to clear their streets. But residents like Diane Drake aren`t leaving their cul-de-sacs-not because of an inconvenience that strikes a few times a year. ”I wouldn`t move to a regular street,” Drake said. ”This is pretty good. Until it snows.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Amid Illinois confronting a persistent migrant crisis, a Naperville councilman, Josh McBroom, is proactively addressing the situation. He has proposed a plan to connect willing local residents with asylum-seekers requiring shelter. McBroom discussed the concept of compiling a list of Naperville households willing to host these newcomers at a recent city council meeting, as per the Chicago Tribune. While there seems to be a split among city officials, the proposal has garnered some backing. This has prompted staff to explore the viability of a grassroots hosting program, leveraging the city’s affluence as a refuge for those in need. “We do have a very affluent community. A lot of big homes,” McBroom highlighted the potential in Naperville for private citizens to fill the gap where government funds may fall short, according to the same Tribune report. Following Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s move to relocate over 30,000 migrants to the Chicago area, including collar counties like Naperville due to logistical changes, McBroom’s initiative emerges. While still in the early stages, this plan could provide a direct means of assistance to these individuals, many of whom encounter harsh temperatures and resource shortages upon their arrival. “I’m hearing stories about little kids at train stations without coats on,” McBroom said, painting a grim picture of the migrants’ plight to the Chicago Tribune. Aligned with local initiatives, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker revealed a commitment of $17 million in state funds to assist municipalities in tackling the migrant crisis, as reported by the Daily Herald. The Metropolitan Mayors Caucus, granted $11 million from this fund, will distribute grants to communities displaying readiness to aid migrants with housing and food. While recognizing the intricacies of his proposal and addressing concerns regarding local schools and city management roles, McBroom maintains the necessity of the initiative in response to what he deems the “inhumane” current state of affairs. The implementation specifics of McBroom’s proposal remain unclear. The challenge extends beyond city council deliberations, encompassing logistics, legality, and ethical considerations. Nevertheless, the growing support for action in Naperville indicates that amidst the cold winds, there is a compassionate undercurrent eager to reshape the narrative for those stranded in the suburb’s embrace. McBroom shared with the Daily Herald, “My idea would be let’s find out … let’s find out who’s willing to help.”)

https://www.myjournalcourier.com/news/article/illinois-lawmakers-clear-path-assault-weapon-18615276.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: One of the concerns raised during the discussions focused on how ISP planned to collect and store information about the items people registered, and what the agency would do with that information if the law eventually is overturned as unconstitutional. So far, the law has survived legal challenges in both state and federal courts, but the National Association for Gun Rights, which is the major plaintiff in one of the federal lawsuits, has said it plans to file an appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court within the next several weeks. Rep. Ryan Spain, R-Peoria, who also co-chairs the committee, said Tuesday he was frustrated by the short timeframe used to adopt the new rules and by the way some issues were handled. He then offered a motion to prohibit ISP from adopting the rules, arguing that the rules do not meet a requirement in state statute that they be “simple and clear” so people and groups affected by them can understand them. That motion failed because it needed eight votes on the 12-member committee but only received six.)

ABC7
— Illinois Republicans to introduce legislative package to discourage migrant arrivals – Sarah Schulte
https://abc7chicago.com/migrants-illinois-abbott-republicans-chicago/14330663/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But instead of extending a helping hand, some Illinois Republican lawmakers said they plan to introduce a legislative package aimed at discouraging migrants from coming here, including repealing an element of the Trust Act that prohibits local law enforcement from cooperating with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE. “Our hope is they are going to have traveler’s remorse and that migrants will return to their home country,” said State Senator Andrew Chesney (R-Freeport). “I’ve been a police officer since 1993. I can tell you it’s insane, that you have one law enforcement agency not able to speak to another,” said State Senator John Cabello, Assistant Republican Leader. Additionally, state republicans criticized Illinois for providing health care for undocumented residents and for providing housing and resources to the migrants. “Governor Pritzker, his allies in the General Assembly, Mayor Johnson have rolled out the red carpet for the migrants,” Chesney said. While the state will continue to care for new arrivals, Gov. Pritzker has asked Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to stop sending them here during the bad weather. His request was ignored. “I think that tells you everything you need to know about the Republican Party, their position on migration and Gov. Abbott himself,” Pritzker said Monday. The Republican migrant legislative package is unlikely to gain traction in Springfield; nor is more state money for the migrants. In a statement, Democrat Senate President Don Harmon said, “We recognize the moral imperative of aiding our new neighbors, but we also have lingering issues with the unhoused, food insecurity, mental health and lack of employment in communities across the state that deserve resources and assistance, too.”)

https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/illinois-republicans-push-back-on-migrant-funding-as-state-lawmakers-return-to-springfield/3329170/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As lawmakers return to Springfield Tuesday, the migrant crisis in Chicago moves to the top of their agenda. Republicans introduced a package of legislation designed to strip Illinois of its sanctuary status and make it a less attractive alternative for asylum seekers. They want to repeal the Trust Act which keeps local police from talking to Immigration and Customs Enforcement about undocumented individuals. They also want to reduce health care expenditures and education spending on asylum seekers. “Our job as elected officials is to protect those taxpayers that pay our salaries and pay for everything under this dome,” said State Rep. John Cabello from Rockford. In Chicago, the Office of Emergency Management and Communications said that no new buses of asylum seekers have arrived from the Southern border states and that the official drop off site no longer has any migrants staying in CTA warming buses. There are still more than 200 people awaiting placement at O’Hare and another 12 in the warming center at the Harold Washington Library. The lull comes after Texas Governor Gregg Abbott refused a request by Illinois Governor JB Pritzker to stop sending busloads of migrants in the subzero cold. Pritzker responded by placing full page ads in five Texas newspapers pleading for a stop to state transports to save lives. “It’s dangerous to send a busload of migrants who don’t have jackets, who don’t have shoes, proper shoes, to a climate like the one we are in now,” Pritzker said while campaigning for President Joe Biden at Monday’s Iowa Republican Caucuses. Who will pay for housing migrants? According to Politico, both Chicago and New York City are teaming up to ask the Department of Homeland Security for more money. New York City Comptroller Brad Lander and Chicago Budget Director Annette Guzman reportedly signed a letter Director Alejandro Mayorkas saying the cities have not received proper reimbursement from the federal government. Cost is a major concern for Illinois Republicans as well. They claim their new legislative package is deigned to stave off tax increases to pay for migrant services.)

Additional locations will open on March 4. A full list of early voting sites has not yet been released, but information on early voting can be found on the DuPage County website.

I would focus on how your critics/opponents use your being forced into early retirement against you. I would stress that the more qualifications that you have when you are forced to retire early, the more that your critic/opponents hint/imply/argue/shout that you were forced to retire early because you were a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things. I had the following qualifications when the Democrats who ran GAO forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old: I had worked for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $118,439-$150,075/year. I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $97,079-$110,020/year. I had become a licensed CPA. I had passed the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations on my first attempt.

To let illegals illegally come to America illegally and to illegally stay in America illegally just because they seek asylum, refugee, or parole status not only opens the floodgates, not only abolishes America’s borders, but destroys America.

— A pay cut for a better work-life balance? Many workers say yes – Micah Materre (COMMENT: Have you taken a pay cut? GAO audits IRS. In 1980, when I was 31 years old, I took a $22,996/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 to GS-9 Step 10, to transfer from IRS to GAO. I did that because the Democrats who ran GAO would not let me transfer unless I took that pay cut. Because my Democrat IRS superiors made it clear that they would never promote me to GS-13. Because the GAO Staff Manager who arranged the transfer promised me I would be quickly promoted to GS-11 Step 10 and then back to GS-12 Step 5 and then to GS-13. Because that GAO Staff Manager promised me he would assign me to audits of IRS so that I could use my knowledge of IRS that I had gained working for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $97,079-$110,020/year. Because of GAO’s mission. Because GAO claimed to be nonpartisan. Because far too many people hate IRS employees. But the Democrats who ran GAO immediately replaced that Staff Manager with a Staff Manager who disapproved of my being a former IRS employee, my being a former union member, and my being conservative, Republican, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, Crete resident 1948-1972, Wheaton resident since 1978, and someone who transferred in with almost 12 years of federal seniority, lots of unused annual leave and sick leave. For the next 6 years, he gave me bad job assignments and unfair performance expectations and appraisals, he delayed my promotions, and he I kept me off audits of IRS. But then, he want on extended sick leave in late 1985 because of his heart problems caused by his excessive drinking. That enabled the Staff Manager who had arranged my transfer to assign me to audits of IRS and to promote me to GS-13, currently $115,439/year. But then, in 1987, the Staff Manager who disapproved of me came back from extended sick leave and promptly a) forced Staff Manager who had arranged my transfer to retire, b) threw off audits of IRS, c) gave me a very bad job assignment, d) gave me very unfair performance expectations and a very unfair performance appraisal, ranked me at the bottom of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and made it clear that GAO would never reassign me to audits of IRS or promote me to GS-14. )

— You need more than $1 million to retire in parts of the US: How does Chicago rank? – Addy Bink (COMMENT: The cost of living in Wheaton is very high. My Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension is dramatically less (it is only $65,165/year), because my Democrat superiors wasted my career and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. Even though I paid into Social Security 1964-1974, my Social Security is dramatically less (it is only $2,945.20/year). because I get a CSRS pension. Because Medicare now costs me $3,255.60/year, all my Social Security goes to pay Medicare and I had to pay Medicare $320.40 more. I have only $259,336.63 in regular IRA accounts and only $69,091.58 in Roth IRA accounts a) because of my Democrat superiors in the federal government, b) because I paid lots of money for tuition and books to earn three job-related master’s degrees, and c) because I bought new cars and collector cars.)
https://wgntv.com/news/chicago-news/you-need-more-than-1-million-to-retire-in-parts-of-the-us-how-does-chicago-rank/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois fell on the lower end of the scale, ranking as the 15th-cheapest state overall. Here, GOBankingRates determined you need at least $787,800 to retire, slightly more than Indiana at $777,600. Wisconsin retirees need even more at $840,000. That total would, of course, increase if you retired earlier. To fund a 30-year retirement, you’d need at least $1 million in 25 states, the study found. . .While Illinois ranked among the more affordable states, Chicago ranked among the most expensive metros to retire in. Here, you’ll need roughly $948,000 in order to afford a 25-year retirement. If you moved north to the Milwaukee-Waukesha area, you could save about $100,000, the analysis found. Across the state in the St. Louis area, a retiree needs even less at about $744,000.)

If I had been a Democrat woman or minority, they would have promoted me into their Senior Executive Service (currently $191,900/year) long before I was 40 year old in 1988. I earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970. I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976. I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980. I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981. I became a licensed CPA in 1981. All my coworkers who my Democrat superiors promoted over me were Democrats who a) had less work experience than I had, b) had less education than I had, c) had fewer no professional certifications, and/or d) had no professional license. Virtually all of them were women and/or minority. It is called political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)
