They are Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and/or RINOs. They 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.

SOUTHERN
— Union County Democratic Party withdraws legal action over county board’s pick for state’s attorney – MOLLY PARKER (DIERSEN: What do you say to a) those who cast Republican primary ballots and/or sign Republican candidate petitions but who focus on destroying Republicans and b) those who do not cast primary ballots and/or do not sign candidate petitions but who focus on destroying Republicans?) 
https://thesouthern.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/union-county-democratic-party-withdraws-legal-action-over-county-board/article_99de7213-eda0-58fd-906c-ff441241f069.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a statement to The Southern on Thursday, Union County Democratic Party Chair Teresa Vincent said that the county’s legal counsel has since provided her the necessary documentation establishing Klingemann’s affiliation to the Democratic Party. Klingemann, a private attorney in Marion who previously worked as an assistant state’s attorney with Edmonds, had not voted in primary elections, and was not active in party politics. The board confirmed his appointment by a 3-2 vote along party lines, with Republicans voting in favor of his confirmation and Democrats against. Union County Board Chairman Max Miller previously said that Klingemann stated to him during the interview process that he was a Democrat, which he said satisfied the party affiliation requirement under the law. But Vincent argued that Klingemann’s record was not sufficient to establish him as a Democrat. She pointed to a section of the law that specifically speaks to the replacement of state senators and representatives and defines party affiliation as follows: A person is a member of a party for 23 months after signing a petition for a candidate’s partisan candidacy for office, signing a petition joining a particular party, pulling a partisan primary ballot, running for partisan office or otherwise holding a partisan position such as state central committeeperson.)

RUSS STEWART
— BAIL-OUTS PROLIFERATE AMONG DEMOCRATIC COMMITTEEMEN
http://www.russstewart.com/articles/2019/09-11-19.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Here is a multiple-choice question for anyone who is still paying attention. A Chicago Democratic ward committeeman is (a) at the top of the political food chain, (b) at the bottom of the political food chain, (c) holds a non-paying post that is inconsequential, and/or (d) believes it’s a steppingstone to glory and power. Anybody who is now or has been a committeeman would answer (b) and (c). Anybody who aspires to and is running for committeeman in 2020 would answer (a) and (d). And everybody else, including this columnist, would give a resounding (c). After all, the sitting Democratic committeemen of the 1st, 39th, 40th, 41st, 45th and 49th wards, who were elected in 2016, lost 2019 bids to be elected or re-elected alderman, and the 50th Ward committeeman and the former 32nd Ward committeeman lost 2018 state senator and county commissioner races. Robert Murphy (39th) and Pat O’Connor (40th) lost the April 2 aldermanic runoff with, respectively, 44.1 and 46.2 percent. Proco Joe Moreno (1st), Tim Heneghan (41st), John Arena (45th) and Joe Moore (49th) lost the Feb. 26 primary with, respectively, 38.8, 29.7, 36.2 and 36.6 percent. And Ira Silverstein (50th) lost his Illinois 8th Senate District seat with 29.9 percent and John Fritchey (32nd) lost with 44.6 percent. They would surely answer the above question with a (b) and (c).)

I fully disclose that I have been the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000, a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999, and I am a Trump supporter, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, old (born in 1948), non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, federal retiree, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes use the aforesaid to destroy me. They use the aforesaid to paint me as being a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, someone who harasses people, and even worse things. They talk and act like they work for those who dominate the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois.

THE HILL
— How important is candidate age? – MARK MELLMAN (DIERSEN: How old are you? I am 70. All my critics/opponents, all their operatives and all their dupes promote age discrimination a) because they want to get rid of those who are older than they are and/or b) because they want to curry favor with those who promote age discrimination.) 
https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/460812-mellman-how-important-is-candidate-age
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Candidates are not simply bundles of age, race and résumé. They have issue positions and priorities, personality traits and personal stories, that weren’t measured in these conjoint experiments. We don’t know how much age matters compared to those factors. More broadly, moving from the generic to the specific is not always clear cut. In our example, while 70 may be too old, not all 70-year olds are too old. That’s exactly what a new CBS YouGov poll on candidate age tells us. In response to questions specific to each candidate, just 37 percent said Sanders was “too old” to be president, 31 percent said Biden was and only 5 percent believed Warren is too old to be president. Polls seem to tell us that age is important. But failure to ask the right questions, in the right ways, can lead analysts and strategists astray.)

— One Argument for Radical Income Transparency Our research suggests that disagreements about government spending may be partly based on misperceptions about how much others make – Oliver Hauser and Michael Norton (DIERSEN: My Civil Service Retirement System pension is $53,316/year. My Social Security is $2,118/year. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes should be required to disclose the source and amount of their income.) 
https://www.wsj.com/articles/one-argument-for-radical-income-transparency-11568167323
(FROM THE ARTICLE: How much do people actually know about the income and wealth of people who live around them? And how does what they think they know skew the way they think about government taxes and spending? Recent research we conducted suggests that the answer to those two questions are: Not much and a lot. An emerging body of research suggests that citizens’ preferences for spending on public goods—from social programs to health care to infrastructure—are based in part about who they believe contributes and benefits. However, we discovered that many people are unaware of the true extent of inequality where they live. And in some cases, their beliefs are dramatically different than reality.)

(FROM THE LETTER: Same sex marriages are legal and adoptions are now permitted. “Transing” from one gender to another is unusual no matter how you cut it. There is no reason for any hostility to gays and for those that have changed genders, but endorsing and even encouraging it is objectionable to many who have different views and believe strongly in the traditional family with one mom and one dad. There are celebs and great poets and philosophers who have been gay and have made contributions to society, no doubt about it. But the foundations for their good work had nothing to do with their sexual orientation.)

ATLANTIC
— Why Conservatives Are Turning Against Higher Education College isn’t providing an effective engine of upward mobility for most Americans. – Reihan Salam
https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/08/higher-education-has-become-increasingly-partisan/596407/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: At a recent gathering of conservatives, for example, Hawley drew a straight line from the declining economic prospects of non-college-educated workers to a number of social maladies. “Just about any American worker without a four-year college degree will have a hard time in the cosmopolitan economy. Maybe that’s one reason why marriage rates among working-class Americans are falling, why birth rates are falling, why life expectancy is falling. All the while, an epidemic of suicide and drug addiction ravages every sector, every age group, every geography of the working class.” This divergence of the economic prospects of the college-educated and non-college-educated is hardly a new development. What is new, though, is the growing interest among Republican lawmakers, Hawley included, in doing something about it legislatively. One implication of the senator’s remarks is that Congress ought to be more solicitous of the interests of the non-college-educated, and to that end the senator recently introduced legislation that, according to The Hill, would allow low-income students to use federal dollars currently earmarked for higher education to pursue vocational training. Leaving aside the merits of Hawley’s proposal, there is reason to believe that it is good politics, or rather good Republican politics. As the Pew Research Center finds in a new survey, there’s been a sharp increase in dissatisfaction with America’s colleges and universities among Republicans in recent years, and it makes perfect sense for right-of-center policy makers to want to do something about it. Consider the changing composition of America’s major-party coalitions. Shortly after the 2018 midterms, Adam Harris observed that the Trump presidency was accelerating the “diploma divide,” which refers to the starkly different voting patterns of college-educated white voters and those without a degree, a split that is unique to whites. In the midterms, Republicans did 16 points better among whites without a college degree, while securing the votes of only 45 percent of their college-educated counterparts. In contrast, when George H. W. Bush defeated Michael Dukakis in 1988, he did so in part by winning college-educated white voters by 20 points. Another factor in the diploma divide is the gender gap in college attendance and completion. In the 1980s, women began graduating from college in higher numbers than men, and since then, their advantage has only widened. Today, you have to go up to the 60-and-over demographic before you find men outnumbering women among college graduates. The diploma divide has also had implications for partisan geography. When Republicans lost the House in 2006, half of their vulnerable seats were in districts that had more college graduates than the national average; that number was 70 percent for the 2018 midterms.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Whether weed-infused drinks are going to catch on the way vape pens, edibles, and traditional flower have is still up for debate, but your favorite beer companies are still most likely looking over their shoulders. And that’s because they have a legitimate concern that the cannabis industry may lure consumers away from alcohol. At “Cannabis In The Booze Industry,” a conference during Bar Convent Brooklyn, a trade show for the beverage industry in June 2019, leaders from both the cannabis and alcohol industries gathered to talk about how one affects the other. All signs are clear that the rapidly growing cannabis sector is a significant threat to the alcoholic beverage industry, particularly for beer drinking consumers. Larger alcoholic beverage distributors, including Constellation Brands, Molson Coors, and Heineken, have already invested heavily in cannabis in an effort to ride the wave rather than be washed away in a potential tsunami of non-alcoholic canna-drinks. Or, as studies like research from the University of Georgia and Syracuse University in New York are finding, legalization of marijuana could mean interest in — and consumption of — alcohol experiences a corresponding decline. . . .3). Bars Are Ready to Get Onboard With the inclusion of cannabis-infused drinks, bars stand to attract consumers who would want to socialize or recreationally indulge while avoiding alcohol. These beverages could offer options to widen bars’ customer base to include people who don’t want to drink alcohol. Since there’s a chill-factor to the beverages, whether they’re THC- or cannabidiol (CBD)-infused, makes them stand out from current non-alcoholic options.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: I made a promise to myself early in my career. If my job ever became so unbearable that I got stomach cramps at just the thought of walking into the office, it was time to quit. But what if staying in your crummy job is the only way to have tens of thousands of dollars in student debt forgiven? This is the issue vexing a reader, who asked me during a recent online discussion: Should I stay or should I go? “I’m a federal employee with five years left to loan forgiveness,” the person wrote. “I work in a toxic office and have been trying for several years to find a job in a different agency. I was recently offered a two-year term position that would be in a new practice area with supervisory responsibility and a fairly significant pay raise. But I would lose the ‘golden handcuffs’ of virtually guaranteed employment and risk losing six-figure loan forgiveness if I don’t find a permanent position during the two years. Is it worth it?”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: China effectively expelled a Wall Street Journal reporter from the country, one month after the newspaper published a report detailing allegations that a cousin of Chinese leader Xi Jinping was involved in high-stakes gambling and potential money laundering in Australia. Chinese authorities told the Journal on Friday it would not renew press credentials for Chun Han Wong, a Singapore national who has covered Chinese politics out of the paper’s Beijing bureau since 2014. Those credentials expired Friday. China sometimes withholds or refuses visas to punish international news organizations for what the ruling Communist Party perceives as unfavorable coverage. But the decision amounted to the first time in recent memory that the Chinese government has effectively turfed out a reporter from the Journal, a publication generally known for incisive but evenhanded coverage of the country.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Kirkwood said he recently purchased Long Sing Restaurant, a Waukegan restaurant that has five video gambling machines. The purchase made Kirkwood a liquor license holder in the city of Waukegan, which means under state law, he must abstain from any votes on liquor-related issues, city attorney Bob Long said. State law previously outright banned all local elected officials from holding liquor licenses. Former aldermanic candidate Jack Dye, who ran unsuccessfully for alderman in the 6th War and had raised the issue in a Facebook post, said he would hope Kirkwood would also abstain from all votes related to gambling. He also pointed to the level of campaign spending tied to gambling interests in the last election.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: If the city wants to ban sales, the process will be straightforward, he said. But if they choose to allow sales, the proposed ordinances would have to go through the zoning process, which includes giving adequate notice to residents, holding a public hearing before the plan commission and additional approvals at the committee and city council levels. “Effectively, things need to be done by mid-November,” Koenen said. “It takes time to do it right.” Monday’s discussion is expected to take place during the government operations committee meeting, which is held after the 7 p.m. city council meeting at 2 E. Main St.)

At the Milton Township Republican Central Committee Wednesday evening, August 14, 2019, at the Carol Stream Holiday Inn, after two of their nasty threatening operatives falsely charged me with harassing Carol Stream Holiday Inn employees, one of them in front of an extremely credible witness said that he was going to stop everyone from reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.)

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2019/08/18/rasmussen_new_poll_shows_voters_trust_national_political_media_about_the_same_as_they_trust_wikipedia.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Sunday on “Full Measure,” host Sharyl Attkisson discussed a new poll showing a plurality of Americans think political media is more biased than it was five years ago. She talks with pollster Scott Rasmussen, who said: “We asked about national political reporters, are they credible, are they reliable? And you know, a little more than one out of three people say yes. When we ask about Wikipedia, we get the exact same answer. So what’s happening is we have a world where people look at journalists like they look at Wikipedia. Gee, that’s an interesting fact. I better check it myself.” “The media has a huge credibility problem and it’s always had the problem,” he explained. “Oh, we talk about it differently today. Now we talk about it as a political bias. I think the issues have always been there. I mean, people were complaining about the bias of Walter Cronkite back in the 1960s.” He continued: “78% of voters say that what reporters do with political news is promote their agenda. They think they use incidents as props for their agenda rather than seeking accurately record what happened. Only 14% think that a journalist is actually reporting what happened… If a reporter found out something that would hurt their favorite candidate, only 36% of voters think that they would report that. “So voters are looking at them as a political activist, not as a source of information,” he concluded.)

August 7 Morning Edition

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Ten have applied to be appointed to fill Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy. If your representative on your city council resigned, what would you want the process to fill the vacancy to include? I want the city to issue a press release each time it receives an application to fill a vacancy. Those press releases should not only disclose the applicant’s name, but the completed application, resume, and all the documents that were submitted. Residents should have the right to know not only the applicants’ names, but a) how long they have lived in the city and in the district, b) why they want to be appointed to fill the vacancy, c) what they believe the most important issues are that the city needs to address, d) what their opinion is on how those issues could be addressed, e) what their work experience is, f) what their education is, g) what professional certifications and licenses are, and h) what experience do they have carrying out typical city council functions: Review and approve the annual budget; Establish long- and short-term objectives and priorities; Oversee performance of the local public employees; Oversee effectiveness of programs; Establish tax rates; Enter into legal contracts; Borrow funds; Pass ordinances and resolutions; Modify the city’s charter; Regulate land use through zoning laws; Regulate business activity through licensing and regulations; Regulate public health and safety; Exercise the power of eminent domain; Communicate policies and programs to residents; Respond to constituent needs and complaints; and Represent the community to other levels of government. (SEE: https://www.nlc.org/city-councils) There should be at least one well-publicized candidate forum before an appointment is made. Because aforesaid has not happened, and apparently will not happen, for Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy, yesterday, I filed my application, and today, I filed a Freedom of Information Act request for all the documents that applicants have filed. Needless-to-say, I want to know if the candidates would vote for or against banning the sale of pot in Wheaton. – Dave Diersen

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH BIG COLOR PICTURE IN THE NAPERVILLE SUN: DuPage committee starts discussion on allowing or banning recreational pot sales in unincorporated areas – ALICIA FABBRE (DIERSEN: At DuPage County’s last board meeting, I called for DuPage County to be the first country in Illinois to ban the sale of pot. I will continue to do that at future board meetings. Please join me.) 
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-dupage-board-recreational-pot-st-0807-20190806-6cxgufxut5d2jb2cyjkkprv4dy-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Committee members will continue discussion of the issue on Aug. 20 and could bring a recommendation to the full county board as early as the board’s Sept. 10 meeting. Currently, DuPage County zoning follows state law for medical marijuana facilities. Under those rules, cannabis cultivation centers must be located at least 2,500 feet from schools, group homes and residential areas and dispensaries cannot be closer than 1,000 feet to the same sites. If the same standards were used, there likely would be no place to locate a dispensary or cultivation center in any area under the county’s jurisdiction, said Sam Tornatore, who heads the board’s development committee. “If we decided to mirror current zoning, then essentially it’s game over,” said Tornatore, a Roselle Republican. He and others noted the county would have to adopt less restrictive rules than those for medical marijuana in order to allow dispensaries or cultivation centers in unincorporated areas. State law leaves it to municipalities and counties to decide if they want to put any restrictions in place for recreational marijuana businesses, officials said. “The notion of granting easier access to recreational marijuana than to medical marijuana makes no sense,” said board member Robert Larsen, a Wheaton Republican.)

The 200 attendees included Randy Hultgren.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Curran, who said he is scheduling his announcement for Aug. 15, Republican Day at the Illinois State Fair, would become the highest profile name to enter the March 2020 GOP primary contest. So far, four people have filed candidacy statements with the Federal Election Commission — none with more than $1,500 in the bank as of June 30.)

http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2019/aug/06/beggs-and-wendle-in-lead-for-spokane-city-council-/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The race for City Council president pitted two sitting members of the council against Wendle, who despite her lack of resume in city politics was able to raise substantial campaign funds. Beggs, an attorney with a background in social justice who has represented the South Hill on the council since 2016, raced to an early lead with 10,718 votes. Wendle finished the night in second place with 9,349 votes. Mike Fagan, who has earned a reputation as the council’s most conservative member, sought a promotion after two terms representing the northeast district but trailed Beggs and Wendle with 8,093. More ballots will be counted on Wednesday. The race also featured Phillip Tyler, former president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP, who has been dogged by accusations of abuse by multiple ex-wives. He came in a distant fourth. Beggs said he was confident heading into Tuesday’s election that he would come out on top.)

— Bushwick rezoning opponents look beyond Brooklyn for strategies – Paul Stremple
https://brooklyneagle.com/articles/2019/07/29/bushwick-rezoning-opponents-look-beyond-brooklyn-for-strategies/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Community activists in Bushwick are pushing for a complete shutdown of engagement between their local representatives and the Department of City Planning, hoping to stop a planned rezoning of their neighborhood from taking shape. Mi Casa No Es Su Casa, an anti-gentrification group, has started a petition for the purpose, which they say has garnered more than 350 signatures. Previously, the group has shut down community board meetings, disrupted city feedback sessions and projected anti-gentrification and anti-rezoning slogans across swaths of Brooklyn. Now, they’re looking to keep fighting the process, however they can. The group hosted a town hall inside a Bushwick church on Sunday to discuss methods of resistance with residents and community leaders from across the five boroughs. Roughly 30 attendees listened as a panel of speakers addressed both the specific rezoning of Bushwick and the greater processes of rezoning, displacement and gentrification at work in New York City.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190729/party-chairman-dupage-republicans-facing-unity-challenges
(FROM THE ARTICLE: His rise within the ranks of the DuPage Republican Party came one small step at a time, and now Marty Keller is chairman of the political organization that traditionally has found voter favor in the state’s second-largest county. Keller, of Wheaton, got involved in his party first as a precinct committeeman in Milton Township. From that start in 2004, he has stepped into roles as an elected Milton Township trustee and then as the employed executive director of the township’s Community Emergency Response Team; as chairman of the Milton Township Republicans; and then as vice chairman and now chairman of the countywide organization. Keller recently sat down with the Daily Herald to share the party’s outlook after a 2018 election that found Democrats winning an unprecedented number of county, state and national seats. Here is an edited version of the conversation.)
— FRONT PAGE WITH COLOR PHOTO: Casten seeking second term after ‘awesome, humbling’ first months in Congress – Marie Wilson
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190729/casten-seeking-second-term-after-awesome-humbling-first-months-in-congress
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Casten’s opponent from the Republican Party could be former Wheaton City Council member and Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti, who held the statewide position during former Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration. Or it could be former Wheaton City Council member, state representative and gubernatorial candidate Jeanne Ives, who ran against Rauner in the 2018 primary. Casten campaign spokeswoman Chloe Hunt said in a news release that both potential Republican challengers would take opposite stands from Casten on issues such as abortion and taxes. “Jeanne Ives and Evelyn Sanguinetti both embrace an extreme partisan ideology that would deny a woman’s right to choose and raise our health care costs,” Hunt said. “They both strongly support President Trump and they both are wildly out of touch with the concerns of the 6th Congressional District.” Ives launched her campaign by filing a statement of candidacy July 18 with the Federal Election Commission. Sanguinetti has been campaigning since April. Sanguinetti’s campaign has criticized Casten for being “out of touch” with his constituents, for rubber-stamping priorities of House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi instead of being “a centrist,” and for saying he wants to open an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. . .The National Republican Congressional Committee, for example, is calling out Casten and fellow freshman U.S. Rep. Lauren Underwood of the 14th District for votes related to military spending, saying they both are playing to a “socialist base” and putting “partisan extremism ahead of the safety of our brave troops.”)

AMERICAN THINKER
— It’s No Longer about Equality – Jeffrey Folks
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/07/its_no_longer_about_equality.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Minorities achieved legal equality in the 1960s, and they proceeded to claim the equivalent of reparations in the form of affirmative action, minority set-asides, preferential admissions based on race, and thousands of informal arrangements in the workplace granting preference in terms of evaluations and workload. As minorities gained these preferences, some became more aggressive. Some version of the Squad’s tactic of calling out whites and daring them to talk back became commonplace across society. Many Americans have witnessed blacks stepping to the front of the line and expecting to be served first. Many have seen minorities promoted ahead of more experienced whites with the idea that minorities need to be “represented.” But what we see now is different. It is not just society helping out those who have been disadvantaged in the past. It is a form of aggressive prejudice against, disdain for, and potential violence against whites. As I see it, the Squad epitomizes this new stage in race relations. It’s fortunate we have a president who recognizes what these women are about and is willing to stand up to them.)
— Reparations: A flawed stratagem – Sam Younnokis (DIERSEN: From what I see, if the Democrats defeat Trump in 2020, they will appoint “Reparations Czars” in each precinct in America who will determine how much reparations each resident of the precinct must pay. The more of the following that you are, the more reparations that you would have to pay: Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owner, German American, draft avoider, and if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

I would focus on those in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois a) who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican and b) who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout.)

— Trump Should Never Release His Tax Returns – David Thomas Roberts (DIERSEN: Democrats use tax return information to destroy Republicans. In 1978, the Democrats at Money Magazine and the Democrats at IRS used my tax returns to hint/imply/argue/shout that my education deductions were improper and should be disallowed. They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the graduate business courses that I took at Loyola 1972-1976 and the graduate accounting courses that I had taken at DePaul since 1976 a) were not job-related, b) did not help me carry out my job duties, c) were taken by me to qualify me for a “new trade or business,” d) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and e) were a distraction.)
https://townhall.com/columnists/davidthomasroberts/2019/07/29/trump-should-never-release-his-tax-returns-n2550685
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The latest data available from the IRS showed 2.2 million tax return errors in 2015 without an audit involved. Several years ago, Money Magazine gave a rather mundane sample family tax return to complete to 45 tax professionals and received 45 different tax outcomes, some as much as 160 percent different in the amount of taxes due or refunds to be received. It is literally impossible for anyone with complex tax returns to absolutely know beyond a shadow of a doubt if our tax professional did it right.)

My new Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates asked me lots of personal questions to get information to use against me. They asked questions to confirm that I was conservative, Republican, Missouri Synod Lutheran, 100% German American, draft avoider, a Crete resident 1948-1972, and that my ancestors had been in America since 1844. To paint my wife and I as being undeservedly filthy rich DINKs, they asked me questions to confirm my wife’s employment and job perks, that we owned a home in Wheaton, that we owned three cars – a 1978 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale, 1978 Chevy Chevette, and a 1972 Corvette, and that we owned a town home in University Park and had rental income from it.)
