— A few questions for those conservatives so eager to cut the pensions of government employees. If all you’re doing is cutting costs at the expense of lives and futures, I don’t see public sector workers accepting that. Nor would it have my support. – Jeffrey Taylor, Irving Park
(COMMENT: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes hint/imply/argue/shout at those who have financial, health, and/or other problems a) that I have had a Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension and subsidized health, dental, and vision insurance since I was 49 years old in 1997 and b) that the aforesaid are far too generous. In my defense, a) I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, b) I earned a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, c) I earned job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and d) I earned a job-related professional license when I was 32. Further, my Social Security is only 1/3 of what it should be because I get a CSRS pension.)

HERITAGE FOUNDATION
— Equity Elementary: “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” Staff in Public Schools – Jay Greene, Ph.D. and James Paul
(COMMENT: How soon, if not already, will the following have Chief Diversity Officers: your employer if you are still employed, the organizations that you are a member of, and the governments that you are under?)
https://www.heritage.org/education/report/equity-elementary-diversity-equity-and-inclusion-staff-public-schools
(FROM THE ARTICLE: An analysis of student test-score data shows that employing a chief diversity officer (CDO) in K–12 school districts does not contribute to closing achievement gaps and is even likely to exacerbate those gaps. If CDOs are not accomplishing their stated goals, what is accomplished by creating these positions? CDOs may be best understood as political activists who articulate and enforce an ideological orthodoxy within school districts. They help to mobilize and strengthen the political influence of one side. The creation of CDOs tilts the political playing field against parent and teacher efforts to remove the radical ideology of critical race theory and other illiberal ideals from school curricula and practices.)

PRESS HERALD
— COMMENT: A house divided against itself cannot stand. Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. Ever-increasingly, the Republican Party lets those who reject some, most, if not all of its platform, that is, it lets Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, Independent plants, and RINOs a) serve as Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains, b) hold leadership positions in Republican township/ward/county/state organizations, and c) run for government offices. Most commonly, they reject the traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. I should write a book about the aforesaid in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton. I would focus on those who had their operatives and their dupes a) stop me from raising funds from DuPage County Republicans so that DuPage County Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day parade and fireworks, b) end my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship in 2012, c) end my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership in 2011, d) end my Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster service in 2010 and 2004, e) end my Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee membership in 2007, f) try to get ICRC to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters in 2006, and g) end my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board membership in 2004.)

— Federal employees make an average of $100K a year, according to watchdog group – ELISSA SALAMY
(COMMENT: Ever since I became a federal employee in 1966 when I was 18 years old, my critics/opponents have viciously demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me as being overpaid. In my defense, I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32. GAO started paying me $102,188 in today’s dollars in 1986 when I was 38 years old. In my defense, I had worked for GAO for almost 7 years, and before that, for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $85,935-$97,395. I had passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt when I was 32. I had become a licensed CPA when I was 32. I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt when I was 30. I had earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul when I was 31. I had earned an MBA from Loyola when I was 27. I had earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU when I was 21.)
https://foxillinois.com/news/nation-world/federal-employees-make-an-average-of-100k-a-year-according-to-watchdog-group
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Watchdog group Open the Books took a close look at how much federal employees are getting paid. “In most federal agencies today, the average salary now is six figures, $100,000 per year. But it’s not only about the big salary, it’s also about the benefits: 44 days of paid time off for the average bureaucrat,” said Open The Books’ Adam Andrzejewski to Jan Jeffcoat on The National Desk. “We also found nearly 27,000 federal employees out-earn every governor of the 50 states.”)

(COMMENT: In 1971, when I was 22 years old, Oldsmobile rescinded a job offer that I had accepted saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. Firestone Stores fired me for accepting that offer. That resulted in my accepting a job offer from IRS. Did Oldsmobile post a “Whites not welcome sign” in 1971?)

RIVER BENDER
— With Application Deadline Approaching, Duckworth Seeks Additional Student Applications For U.S. Military Service Academies
(DIERSEN: Were you an outstanding Illinois student? I was not. I just barely made it into the top 20% of my high school class in 1966. My ACT score  was only 24. Further, a) my eyesight could not be corrected to 20/20, b) I had partial red/green color blindness, and c) I could not run because I had Osgood-Schlatter disease (SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osgood%E2%80%93Schlatter_disease ). Further, I did not demonstrate leadership ability. I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; pumped gasoline 1971-1972; and collected delinquent taxes for IRS 1971-1980.)
https://www.riverbender.com/articles/details/with-application-deadline-approaching-duckworth-seeks-additional-student-applications-for-us-military-service-academies-53303.cfm
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Each year Duckworth, with the assistance of a nomination committee, selects from the applicants a group of outstanding Illinois students to receive Congressional nominations to attend West Point, the Air Force Academy, the Naval Academy, or the Merchant Marine Academy. “It takes a special kind of young person to succeed at a U.S. Military Service Academy,” said Duckworth. “The rigorous nomination process demands outstanding test scores, a high GPA, and a commitment to community service. I encourage all interested Illinois students to apply for a nomination, and I applaud their desire to serve our country.” Service academies allow young people to serve their country while receiving a full four-year scholarship. Upon acceptance of an appointment into an Academy, a student commits to five years of active duty service after graduation. U.S. citizens between the ages of 17 and 23 may receive appointments from one of the four service academies. In order to be considered, a student must get a formal nomination from their Member of Congress, Senator, or the Vice President.)
