— Democrats and Republicans Aren’t Just Divided. They Live in Different Worlds. The two parties represent radically different slices of the American economy.- Aaron Zitner, Dante Chinni, Jessica Wang, and Danny Dougherty (DIERSEN: Who do you have little in common with? I have little in common with those who are anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: America’s political polarization is almost complete. Its two main political parties increasingly represent two different economies. And they barely overlap. Democrats can be found in educated cities and suburbs where professional jobs are plentiful. Republicans live in working-class and rural communities, home to agriculture and low-skill manufacturing. . .Household income tells a similar story. A decade ago, median household income was about the same for each party. Since then, it has jumped nearly 17% in Democratic districts while falling 3% in Republican ones. . .Republican districts, by contrast, hold growing shares of the nation’s agriculture, mining and low-skill manufacturing jobs, many of which do not require a college degree, have lower pay and are more exposed to overseas competition. . .People with college degrees are more concentrated in Democratic districts than in Republican districts. . .Why does this matter? “When folks have less in common with one another, it’s hard to expect that they’re going to see the problem the same way,” said Roger Johnson, president of the National Farmers Union, “let alone recognize that a problem exists.”)

— Whistleblower Complaint Involves Trump Communication With Foreign Leader – Dustin Volz and Siobhan Hughes (DIERSEN: The Democrats who dominate the federal government took adverse actions against me because I blew the whistle on their political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. The RINOs who dominate the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Central Committee continue to take adverse actions against me because I blow the whistle on their failure/refusal to defend/advance the IRP platform and the Republican Party platform.)

— Company-Led Ballot Initiatives May Be Good For The Cannabis Industry, But Are They Good Policy? – Kris Krane (DIERSEN: Every pot pusher, including every journalist, activist, candidate, elected official, party leader, major donor, political consultant, etc., should be required to disclose how much money the “cannabis industry” pays them to push pot.)

— Dear Taylor Swift, you are not a victim, so stop acting like one. – Haley Victory Smith

— Industry Insight: What’s a Journalist Worth? Finding the Answer Could Help Sustain Local News – Matt DeRienzo (DIERSEN: Of course, me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails are worse than worthless according to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, my neighborhood, my precinct, Wheaton’s West District, Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. I should write a book about the aforesaid. They talk and/or act like they have been promised lots of money, a new home, a new car, a sweetheart job, a sweetheart contract, favorable legislation (video gambling, pot, etc.), and/or much more if they succeed in stopping me from putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out.)

— New Study Finds Americans Believe Journalists Act More Unethically Than Police, Military Pew Research polled Americans on trust in leaders – Lindsey Ellefson (DIERSEN: Everyone involved with journalism, politics, and/or government should fully disclose everything about themselves, including the sources and amount of their income, their political affiliation, race, gender, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, and how long their ancestors have been in America. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is $53,316/year and my Social Security is $2,118/year. I am Republican, White, male, born in 1948, 100% German national origin, baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, heterosexual, married, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used the aforesaid against me.)
