GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— For a municipality or a county to allow the sale of recreational pot is to flush its “family friendly” status down the toilet. Each and every Illinois resident should urge their municipality and their county by email and at municipal and county meetings to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot ASAP. Each and every Wheaton resident should urge Wheaton’s Mayor and each of its City Council members by email (https://www.wheaton.il.us/544/City-Council) and at City Council meetings (the next one is tomorrow, Monday, July 15) to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot in Wheaton ASAP. Similarly, each and every DuPage County resident should urge DuPage County’s Chairman and each of its board members by email (https://dupageco.org/CountyBoard/CountyBoardListing.aspx) and at board meetings (the next one is Tuesday, July 16) to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot in unincorporated DuPage County ASAP.

SPRINGFIELD STATE JOURNAL REGISTER
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Trump-haters “hope Illinois private detention ban sparks change.” (DIERSEN: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. If you are involved in government or in politics, you should expect that sooner or later, your critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes will demonize, denigrate, and condemn the town that you grew up in. I should write a book about those who have demonized, denigrated, and condemned Crete, the town a) that I lived in 1948-1972, b) that my ancestors have lived in since 1854, and c) that my brother continues to live in. They stress that while I lived in Crete, most of its residents were German American and/or Lutheran.) 
https://www.sj-r.com/news/20190713/advocates-hope-illinois-private-detention-ban-sparks-change
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some of the most vocal supporters of such detention centers have been the communities themselves. One of the first proposals was in the economically depressed community of Crete, which is near the Indiana border. “The only reason we were interested in it was because of the money. We weren’t trying to make any statement of any kind,” said longtime Crete Mayor Michael Einhorn.)

IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.)
https://thriveglobal.com/stories/questions-ask-interviewer-evaluate-future-move/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: What are the company’s values? What characteristics do you look for in employees in order to represent those values? . . . What does success look like in this position, and how do you measure it? . . . Is there anything about my background or resume that makes you question whether I am a good fit for this role?)

MOTLEY FOOL

But they knew that my ancestors never owned slaves, that all my ancestors always lived in northeast Illinois, that they worked in a brick factory in Chicago, that they operated farms in Crete and Grant Park, and that they operated a hardware store in Crete.)

AIKEN STANDARD
— Three seats, seven candidates: Who’s running for Aiken City Council? – Colin Demarest (DIERSEN: Do you live in a city? If a city council seat became vacant, what factors would discourage you from running for it? For me, factors include candidates who commit to voting against the sale of pot and against video gambling in the city. In addition, candidates who commit to promoting the traditional family, right to life, immigration, Second Amendment, illegal drugs, equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving), and other planks in the Illinois Republican Party and Republican Party platforms. In addition, candidates who oppose promoting dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and even worse things. When city council vacancies occur, I believe that a) the names of applicants should be immediately released, b) all information that they submit, including completed application forms, resumes, and answers to standard questions, should be immediately released, c) a thorough background investigation should be done on each applicant, and d) one or more candidate forum should be held.)

— How long should a job search take? – ANGELA COPELAND (DIERSEN: What has hindered your job search the most? After I graduated from NIU with a bachelor’s degree in management in 1970 when I was 21 years old, it was my being draft bait. Potential employers did not believe that my application for a financial hardship draft deferment would be granted. After my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement offer in 1997 when I was 49 years old, it was the adverse actions that my Democrat superiors in the federal government had taken against me. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a letter posted to the church’s website, Glombicki addressed the congregation and said the church was “working hard to ensure the safety of all people at WPLC including our queer siblings.” “As a congregation, our work continues,” Glombicki said in the letter. “While preaching the love of all people each week might seem a bore, while it may seem like the city is welcoming to all sexual orientations and gender identities, and while it seems like something like this would never happen in Wicker Park, our message of radical welcome declaring this congregation ‘Reconciling in Christ’ in 2006 still needs amplification in the here and now.” Wicker Park Lutheran Church has a longstanding history of welcoming all to worship, affirming since 2006 that all people, of all sexual orientations and gender identities, are welcome to become members of the church. “We believe as people of faith that it’s about love — not just tolerance but acceptance and inclusion,” Glombicki said Tuesday night. “We continue to live out and widen those circles of love in all that we do here.” At this Sunday’s 10 a.m. service, hundreds of small rainbow flags will be placed in the lawn area near the flags “as a sign of love.” “As a congregation, each year we celebrate the diversity that God has created,” Glombicki said. This Sunday will be about remembering the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots and celebrating more than a decade spent as a church embracing people from all backgrounds: “We know that love is the final word and we will continue to make that the final word as we live out our ministry here.”)

Previously, they a) had given me unfair performance expectations and appraisals; b) had always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes; c) had not promoted me beyond GS-13; d) had gotten rid of my mentor in 1987 who had promoted me in 1986, who had gotten me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and who hired me in 1980; e) had kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO; and f) had forced me to take a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

They painted what GAO Analysts do as being a unique “trade or occupation.” They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, or veteran. They viciously demonized, denigrated, and condemned the fact a) that I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $82,579-$93,592/year, b) that much of what IRS Revenue Officers do is similar to what GAO Analysts do, c) that I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, d) that I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, and e) that I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul. They were furious that I transferred with me almost 12 years of federal seniority, 30 days of unused vacation days, and 130 unused sick days.)
