That is no way to win,” he said.)

They were furious when I got promoted to GS-9 (currently $66,942/year) in 1972 when I was 24, to GS-11 (currently $80,994/year) in 1973, and to GS-12 (currently $97,079/year) in 1974. I had completed only 3 graduate evening business courses at Loyola when I was promoted in 1972, 7 in 1973, and 11 in 1974. I did not earn an MBA from Loyola until 1976. I did not take and pass the CPA examination on my first attempt until 1979.)

According to my critics/opponents, my Democrat GAO Chicago office superiors did not a) fail/refuse to promote me beyond GS-13, b) throw me off audits of IRS, c) always rank me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and d) force me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old because in 1988 I became the office’s only active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. According to my critics/opponents, my Democrat IRS Chicago office superiors did not a) fail/refuse to promote me beyond GS-12, b) disallow my travel vouchers in 1974, and c) disallow my education deductions in 1978 because I complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. According to my critics/opponents, my Democrat GAO superiors did not force me to suffer a $22,996 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO because of the aforesaid.

— Chicago Cop Sues For Right To Change His Race – SAMUEL SPENCER (COMMENT: If I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran, my Democrat superiors in the federal government would not have wasted my career, they would not have taken the many big adverse actions against me that they did.)
https://dailycaller.com/2024/02/27/chicago-cop-sues-for-right-to-change-his-race/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A veteran of the Chicago Police Department has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city because they won’t allow him to change his race designation within their records. Mohammad Yusuf, 43, a 20-year veteran of the police department, is suing the city of Chicago because they won’t allow him to change his race designation from Caucasian, even though he “identifies as Egyptian and African American,” according to CWB Chicago. In 2004, when Yusef joined the force, the department only offered Caucasian, Black and Hispanic as race designations. Now, the Chicago Police Department reportedly lets new recruits choose from over nine different race designations and allows officers to alter their gender identity if desired. But in Yusef’s case, the department has a “blanket prohibition” for race changes, CWB Chicago reported. The lawsuit states: “The Racial Identity Policy Ban facially and intentionally discriminates against certain individuals based on personally identifiable characteristics like race,” CWB Chicago reported. Yusef’s complaint suggests that his career was hindered due to his race designation, according to the outlet. “Despite Yusuf’s exemplary qualifications and the purported race-neutral policy of the Merit System, Yusuf has been repeatedly bypassed for promotion in favor of less qualified candidates, based on their race, specifically African American officers, some of whom had disciplinary issues and were not suitable for the responsibilities of a sergeant,” the complaint said, according to CWB Chicago. Although Yusef took a 23 and Me DNA test to prove his Egyptian heritage at the request of the CPD, the department remained unwilling to approve his request, according to the outlet. The CPD does not reportedly require transgender officers to provide proof of their “transition” before updating their personal records.)

During that time, I earned and saved enough to also buy a new 1972 Corvette in 1971 and to pay for graduate evening business courses at Loyola in 1972.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— Chicago has one of the largest income inequality gaps in the country – Jack Grieve (COMMENT: To remedy that income inequality, in 1997 when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” and they gave my job to my Black subordinate. In today’s dollars, my annual income dropped by $84,910/year or 57%. In today’s dollars, my GAO salary was $150,075/year. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is only $65,165/year or only 43% of what my GAO salary was. Further, to remedy that income inequality, in 1980 when I was 31 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take a pay cut to transfer from IRS to GAO. In today’s dollars, my income dropped by $22,996/year or 21%. In today’s dollars, my IRS salary was $110,020/year. My GAO salary was only $87,024/year or only 79% of what my IRS salary was. According to Democrats and RINOs, I have always been overpaid.)
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/economy/chicago-has-10th-highest-income-inequality-us
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A household in Chicago must bring home an annual salary of at least $149,219 to be among the city’s top 20% of earners. On the other hand, any household earning less than $27,255 is in the bottom quintile bracket. That means the city’s top one-fifth of earners make at least 5.47 times as much as the bottom one-fifth of earners.)

I should write a book about those who have blamed me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters the most for losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct suffered since 2005. I would focus on the candidates who suffered losses and their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers. I would focus on leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization, and Illinois Center Right Coalition. I would focus on conservative and religious leaders and activists.)

— Your Accounting Career Plan (COMMENT: In retrospect, with benefit of hindsight, if I could do it over again, I would have overcome my fear of not being able to pass the CPA examination much sooner than I did. I would have majored in accounting instead of management at UIC, NIU, and Loyola and I would have done things much sooner than I did. As it was, I did not earn an MBA from Loyola until I was 27 in 1976. I did not take and pass the CPA examination until I was 30. I did not earn a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul until I was 31. I did not take and pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination and become a licensed CPA until I was 32. But by then, because of my bad demographics, I was much “too old” to have a successful career in accounting. I did not take more than one graduate evening course at a time at Loyola and DePaul because of financial limitations and time limitations. IRS did not offer me a job until I was 22 and it was as a “Revenue Officer” job instead of a “Revenue Agent” job because I had not taken enough accounting courses.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— What should the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) promote more strongly in its next platform and what should the IRP oppose more strongly in that platform? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

I served on the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee in 2008. Sadly, my requests to be appointed to serve on those committees again in 2012, 2016, and 2020 were not granted. Of course, I have asked to be appointed to serve on the 2024 IRP State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee.

Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party exists to defend and advance conservative principles.

In my opinion, the next IRP platform should more strongly promote the following:
— Personal responsibility,
— Traditional marriage and family,
— Right to life,
— Enforcement of immigration laws,
— Discouragement of vices,
— Second Amendment rights, and
— Equal opportunity, that is, no race or gender based preference giving.

Republican elected officials should promote the aforesaid.

In my opinion, the next IRP platform should more strongly oppose the promotion of the following:
— Dependency on government and charity,
— LGBTQ,
— Abortion,
— Mass/illegal immigration,
— Booze, gambling, pot, and other vices,
— Diminishment of Second Amendment rights, and
— DEI, that is, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.

Republican elected officials should oppose promotion of the aforesaid.

https://www.texastribune.org/2022/06/18/republican-party-texas-convention-cornyn/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Meeting at their first in-person convention since 2018, Texas Republicans on Saturday acted on a raft of resolutions and proposed platform changes to move their party even further to the right. They approved measures declaring that President Joe Biden “was not legitimately elected” and rebuking Sen. John Cornyn for taking part in bipartisan gun talks. They also voted on a platform that declares homosexuality “an abnormal lifestyle choice” and calls for Texas schoolchildren “to learn about the humanity of the preborn child.” The actions capped a convention that highlighted how adamantly opposed the party’s most active and vocal members are to compromising with Democrats or moderating on social positions, even as the state has grown more diverse and Republicans’ margins in statewide elections have shrunk slightly in recent years. Votes on the platform were collected at the end of the party’s three-day convention in which party activists moved to add multiple items to the official Texas GOP platform. As the convention closed, two separate sets of ballots — one allowing delegates to choose eight of 15 legislative priorities and another allowing delegates to vote on the 275 platform planks — were gathered. Those will now need to be tallied and certified in Austin, but it is rare for a plank to be rejected, according to party spokesperson James Wesolek.)

And while Darren Bailey’s campaign downplayed the endorsement as an example of the former president’s support of GOP incumbents, the campaign reiterated Bailey “proudly stands” with the former president. – Tina Sfondeles

— Migrant crisis stirs tension in Oak Park, but village mounts a supportive response – Judith Crown
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/equity/migrant-crisis-arrived-oak-park-cold-night
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Scaman says Cook County is reimbursing the village for monthly expenses of more than $300,000. “At this point, we’re going to see all the money we invested,” she said. At its Jan. 23 meeting, Oak Park trustees authorized staff to pursue a grant of $1.9 million through the Illinois Department of Human Services and the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus. The village received notice the following week that grant was approved. The funding will be used to provide aid to asylum-seekers through June 30. That will enable the village to continue helping migrants in a different shelter because asylum-seekers staying at the Carleton and West Cook YMCA must leave by the end of February.)

WEDNESDAY JOURNAL
— The uncomfortable truth – Jonathan Panton
https://www.oakpark.com/2024/02/20/the-uncomfortable-truth/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some may live in denial, but entering the United States illegally is a crime. The village of Oak Park has continually used the term “asylum-seeker” to hide the truth. First, the term “asylum-seeker” is misleading. Applicants seeking asylum protection have the burden of (1) proving that they suffered past persecution or have a well-founded fear of future persecution; (2) the applicant is a member of a protected ground (race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, political opinion); (3) there is a connection between the harm the applicant suffered and their protected ground; and (4) the applicant either fears harm from the home country’s government or the home country is unable or unwilling to control a private person. INA§101(a)(42)(A). Asylum is designed to protect those who meet these four elements. In the fiscal year of 2023, asylum relief was denied in the majority of cases. While some individuals are genuinely escaping persecution, there are many others who unlawfully enter the United States for economic opportunities. This does not warrant asylum protection. The primary job of a government is to keep its citizens safe. In 2023, Customs and Border Patrol had 3,201,144 encounters with illegal immigrants. A serious concern is the lack of vetting of illegal immigrants in the United States. Border Patrol Chief Jason Owens stated on X (Twitter) that his agents arrested an average of 47 individuals every day in 2023 who had “serious criminal histories.” Moreover, those figures only included individuals who have been apprehended. In 2023, 860,000 “gotaways” unlawfully entered the United States. These individuals pose safety concerns since their criminal backgrounds and whereabouts are unknown to law enforcement agencies. Oak Park’s Village Board broke its duty to residents by approving a $1.9 million grant providing various services for immigrants, some of whom may be illegal. The $360,000 allocated toward giving illegal immigrants various legal services is wasteful. The role of the government is to provide public services like police, fire, roads, schools. I don’t recall the village paying for residents’ legal services spent appealing their outrageous property tax bills. Yet Oak Park has no issue doling out money for legal representation to individuals whose first act in the United States may have been a crime.)

— The fate of the IRS could rest on the outcome of the 2024 election – AUSTIN DENEAN (COMMENT: Democrats run IRS and GAO. In 1971, I was one of the last Republicans IRS hired. IRS disallowed my travel vouchers in 1974, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, and never promoted me beyond GS-12 even though I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976 and passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. GAO audits IRS. In 1980, I was one of the last Republicans GAO hired. GAO forced me to take a $22,996/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO, gave me bad job assignments and unfair performance expectations and appraisals, delayed my promotions and never promoted me beyond GS-13, kept me off audits of IRS except 1986-1988, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and forced me to take its early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old even though I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, became a licensed CPA in 1981, earned professional certifications in 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997, and earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— FRONT PAGE: 62% of Americans Lack a College Degree. Can They Solve the Labor Shortage? IBM, Delta and others have dropped college degree requirements but old hiring habits are hard to break. – Lauren Weber (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran the federal government for almost 30 years (Post Office 1966-1969, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997), they ever-increasingly lowered hiring, retention, and promotion requirements and used Affirmative Action and DEI to hire, retain, and promote more Democrats. Consequently, all my coworkers who they promoted over me were Democrat DEI hires a) who had less work experience than I had, b) who had less education than I had, c) who had no professional certifications or fewer than I had, and/or d) who had no professional license like the one I had. Virtually all of them were minorities and/or females. Consequently, that ever-increasingly rendered WORTHLESS my job-related bachelor’s degree (NIU-1970), three master’s degrees (Loyola-1976, DePaul-1980, and IIT-1997), six professional certifications (1979, 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997), and professional license (1981). It is called political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)
https://www.wsj.com/lifestyle/careers/employers-open-more-doors-to-workers-without-degrees-but-few-are-getting-in-732f1098
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Facing a long-term labor shortage, employers are looking to expand the pool of potential workers. One group—people without a college degree—holds particular promise. They make up nearly two-thirds of the U.S. population over 25, and traditionally have been ineligible for many managerial and technical positions. A push by some companies to eliminate degree requirements has opened the door to more candidates. Yet the share of jobs that went to those candidates barely budged after the requirement was lifted, according to a new analysis. There are several explanations for the plodding progress, from automated screening tools that favor college graduates to the difficulty of changing hiring managers’ long-held beliefs about the value of a bachelor’s degree. Many employers say they know time and demographics aren’t on their side. Baby boomers are aging out of the workforce, U.S. birthrates are low, and shifting immigration policies make it difficult to count on reinforcements from abroad. Meanwhile, college enrollment is on the decline. Only 38% of Americans over age 25 have at least a bachelor’s degree. . .Over the past few years, major employers such as medical device maker Medtronic, IBM, Delta, Google, Walmart and General Motors have eliminated degree requirements from hundreds of their job postings. They are among the early members of a movement known as skills-based hiring, where employers evaluate job candidates on their skills rather than their education. “If you’re putting unnecessary requirements on jobs, you’re automatically removing 62% of the population that could apply,” said Kelli Jordan, vice president of growth and development at IBM, one of the first employers to adopt skills-based hiring.)

FORBES
— Ever-increasingly, according to Democrat and RINO leaders, no one is in America illegally. According to Democrat and RINO leaders, all you have to do to be in America legally is to claim asylum, refugee, or parole status. Constructively, Democrat and RINO leaders have abolished America’s borders. Constructively, Democrat and RINO leaders have destroyed America.

MONEYWISE
— 65% of parents are still supporting their millennial children – Sebrina Wex (COMMENT: I should write a book about my critics/opponents whose parents are/were filthy rich. How much money do/did your parents have/had? My critics/opponents have always falsely painted my parents as having been filthy rich because they sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod. But in fact, my father never earned more than $50,000/year in today’s dollars. He almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. Because my parents lacked money, I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964 to buy a 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air in 1964. I washed dishes and delivered newspapers 1964-1966 to buy a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in 1966. I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966 and delivered mail 1966-1967 to pay my UIC expenses and buy a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 in 1967. I delivered mail in 1968 to pay for my UIC expenses and buy a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE in 1968. I delivered mail in 1969 to pay for my NIU expenses 1969-1970.)

— The GOP wants to bring back pay-for-performance – NATHAN ABSE (COMMENT: The Democrats who run GAO have used pay-for-performance (PFP) since 1989. My Democrat GAO superiors always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for PFP purposes. They used the extreme subjectivity in their performance appraisal system. They gave me bad job assignments and unfair performance expectations and appraisals. They turned my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates against me. The aforesaid took place while a) I served on the Executive Committee of the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter 1989-1996, b) became a Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, Certified Government Financial manager in 1994, Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and Forensic Accountant in 1997, and c) earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)

LINKEDIN
— Top Tips for Career Advancement in Accounting – Lisa Ingram (COMMENT: In retrospect, with benefit of hindsight, if I could do it over again, I would have overcome my fear of not being able to pass the CPA examination much sooner. I would have majored in accounting instead of management at UIC, NIU, and Loyola and I would have done things much sooner than I did. As it was, I did not earn an MBA from Loyola until I was 27 in 1976. I did not take and pass the CPA examination until I was 30. I did not earn a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul until I was 31. I did not take and pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination and become a licensed CPA until I was 32. But by then, because of my bad demographics, I was much “too old” to have a successful career in accounting. I did not take more than one graduate evening course at a time at Loyola and DePaul because of financial limitations and time limitations. IRS did not offer me a job until I was 22 and it was as a “Revenue Officer” job instead of a “Revenue Agent” job because I had not taken enough accounting courses.)

Because of their defunding GAO, my Democrat GAO superiors punished me severely They wasted my career, took many big adverse actions against me, and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. They forced me to suffer a $22,996/year (21%) pay cut to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. They gave me bad job assignments and unfair performance expectations and appraisals. They turned my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates against me. They kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 years. They delayed my promotions and never promoted me beyond GS-13. They always ranked me in the bottom half or my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes.)

https://archive.nytimes.com/economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/29/gingrich-and-the-destruction-of-congressional-expertise/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In addition to the C.B.O., one often hears attacks on the Congressional Research Service, the Joint Committee on Taxation and the Government Accountability Office. Lately, the G.A.O. has been the prime target. Appropriators are cutting its budget by $42 million, forcing furloughs and cutbacks in investigations that identify billions of dollars in savings yearly. So misguided is this effort that Senator Tom Coburn, Republican of Oklahoma and one of the most conservative members of Congress, came to the agency’s defense. In a report issued by his office on Nov. 16, Senator Coburn pointed out that the G.A.O.’s budget has been cut by 13 percent in real terms since 1992 and its work force reduced by 40 percent — more than 2,000 people. By contrast, Congress’s budget has risen at twice the rate of inflation and nearly doubled to $2.3 billion from $1.2 billion over the last decade. Mr. Coburn’s report is replete with examples of budget savings recommended by G.A.O. He estimated that cutting its budget would add $3.3 billion a year to government waste, fraud, abuse and inefficiency that will go unidentified. . .It is essential that Congress not cripple what is left of its in-house expertise. Gutting the G.A.O. and abolishing the C.B.O. would be acts of nihilism. Any politician recommending such things is unfit for office.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: When buses ferrying migrants north from Texas began arriving in Naperville, Illinois, which is roughly 30 miles from Chicago, local officials were caught off guard. “We had a total of six buses in December and they went directly to the Metra train station with occupants boarding trains to Chicago,” Naperville Director of Communications Linda LaClouche said. “We did not receive any prior notification of this and became aware of this after it happened.” After those buses dropped off their riders, the city started planning for migrant arrivals and forged an emergency operations plan, LaClouche said. “Given how the situation has evolved and changed, we continue to update our plan,” she said. Naperville has a population of 149,936 and a median household income of $143,754, according to Census data. It has about 68 homes currently on the market worth more than $1 million, according to residential real estate brokerage Redfin. It’s one of a laundry list of Illinois suburbs ? at least 20 in the greater Chicago area ? to which Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has been busing migrants since the city of Chicago began fining and in some cases impounding buses. Abbott has not said why he is now targeting towns outside Chicago, and his office did not respond to a request for comment.)

NEW REPUBLIC
— What is/was your occupation? What percent in your occupation is/was minority and/or female? According to Democrat and RINO leaders, if there are fewer minorities and/or females in an occupation, it is because of racism and/or sexism. But wait, what about unpopular occupations, that is, what about bad jobs? Why would minorities or females want bad jobs? According to my critics/opponents, all the jobs that I had were bad jobs. I was a part-time postal employee 1966-1969, an IRS Revenue Officer 1971-1980, and a GAO Analyst 1980-1997. Why would minorities or females want the bad jobs that I had? The answer is that they did not want them. That is why my superiors had a very hard time recruiting and retaining minorities and females. That is why they lowered requirements dramatically to hire, retain, and promote minorities and females. That is why they wasted my career and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old and gave my job and my preferred corner office to my Black subordinate.

DAILY HERALD
— Both parties agree immigration policy failing – Tonia Khouri, Naperville Township Republican Organization Chairman
https://www.dailyherald.com/20240211/letters-to-the-editor/both-parties-agree-immigration-policy-failing/
(FROM THE LETTER: The crisis at our southern border is being politicized by the media to further the partisan divide between Republicans and Democrats. Both parties agree the anonymous uncontrolled mass entry of millions of migrants is adversely affecting states, counties, cities and local communities, posing a growing risk of enduring consequences. As a nation proud of its immigrant heritage, Naperville Township values diversity and espouses generosity towards charity and helping those in need. For 3 years the Biden Administration’s border policy has negligently overlooked the surge of migrants. Bipartisan concerns have fallen on deaf ears of state and federal leadership. In these challenging economic conditions, taxpayers can’t afford the unsustainable financial burden and unintended consequences we will face due to the influx of migrants. The challenges posed by the influx of migrants remain unaddressed, with no viable solutions or responses in sight: How do you expect educators to run their classrooms when overwhelmed with an influx of migrant children with different languages and backgrounds who are required to be educated without any additional resources? How do you expect medical providers to continue the quality, cost and availability of care that our community relies upon when healthcare must account for an enormous influx of migrants into our local healthcare system? How can our elected officials guarantee our safety when additional strain is placed on law enforcement and judicial system by this influx of migrants without support? Our responsibility to stand up for the well-being and future of our children, as well as the community, transcends political boundaries. Republicans and Democrats unite in acknowledging the failure of the Biden border policy. We endorse Republican candidates who offer practical solutions and seek lasting resolutions that protect our communities instead of jeopardizing them further.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— You can thank a German immigrant for the start of the Naperville Public Library – STEVE METSCH and ANDREA FIELD
https://www.chicagotribune.com/2024/02/08/the-way-we-were-you-can-thank-a-german-immigrant-for-the-start-of-the-naperville-public-library/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Naperville Public Library has a rich history helped in large part by the generosity of James L. Nichols. Nichols, born in Germany in 1851, spoke his native tongue until age 12. He learned to speak English after he and his parents moved to America, living first in Albany, New York, and then moving to Illinois. Nichols earned a certificate to teach at a country district school by age 18, and later moved to Naperville in 1876 when he was 25. He graduated from North-Western College — now known as North Central College — in 1880. In 1882, Nichols was appointed chair of the college’s commerce department and four years later he published a textbook called “The Business Guide.” A huge success, his book had sold 3 million copies by 1917. In 1891, he left higher education to focus on running his publishing company, J.L. Nichols & Co. Nichols was just 44 when he died Aug. 18, 1895, but what he left in his last will and testament had a lasting impact on his adopted hometown. Nichols bequeathed $10,000 to the city of Naperville for the establishment of a library with the requirements that the city maintain it, supply its materials and provide employees for its continual use.)

Congress and the media labeling a protest as an “insurrection” while calling actual riots, “peaceful protests.” The American people turning a blind eye to a President who clearly is suffering from dementia and pretending that everything is all right.)

https://www.gobankingrates.com/money/finance/average-income-dual-income-no-kids-duos/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Every parent knows that kids are expensive. But in addition to shelling out more when you have offspring, parents also often earn less. This makes the little darlings doubly expensive. Here’s what you need to know about the income disparity between parents and those who are child-free. Couples Without Kids Earn More. Couples known as dual income, no kids — or DINKs as they’re sometimes called — earn more than couples with kids, even if both spouses work. According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey Data, as analyzed by Rocket Mortgage, the average dual-income couple who has children has income of $129,000 per year. Two-income couples without kids averaged $9,000 more per year, for a total of $138,000 in annual income. Couples Without Kids Also Spend Less. In addition to having more time to spend on their careers and the increase in salary that comes along with that, couples without kids spend less simply because they aren’t feeding, housing, clothing and educating little people who aren’t contributing to the household income. According to the Institute for Family Studies, the cost to raise a child to adulthood ranges from $202,248 to $430,928. These added expenses coupled with reduced income result in a double whammy for parents. What Are DINKs Doing With All That Extra Money? The dual income, no kids crowd earns more and spends less, so where is that extra money going? Some of it is going to savings, with DINKs putting more aside for retirements than their colleagues who are parents.)
— Mark Cuban: Here’s Why I Don’t Spend Money on a Chauffeur or Cleaning Services – Josephine Nesbit (COMMENT: I am one of the fewer and fewer and fewer homeowners in Wheaton who fertilize, mow, and edge their lawns, trim their bushes, mulch/rake their leaves, shovel their driveway and sidewalk, etc.)
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/mark-cuban-why-don-t-130059290.html
(FROM THGE ARTICLE: World-famous entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist Mark Cuban has a net worth of $4.7 billion, but even he doesn’t spend money on a chauffeur or cleaning services. On “The Really Good Podcast,” the billionaire told host Bobbi Althoff that he doesn’t have a butler, prefers to drive himself everywhere, and does his own laundry. While Cuban does have a personal chef in Dallas, he and his wife cook most of their meals. The video currently has over 2.5 million views on YouTube. Cuban said he drives himself because he enjoys the privacy when asked if he has a chauffeur. “I like the privacy. I’ve been around people who have hired somebody to do everything for them, and that’s just like no privacy,” he explained. “It’s hard enough to have privacy.” Cuban does own several houses and enjoys his private jets, which he says helps him save time. Cuban also said he tries to be the same person as when he was poor and rich and has kept most of the same friends. “When I was poor, I had a blast. I loved my life,” he explained. “I could wake up smiling and back then, you just had not to answer the phone because it could be a bill collector.” Earlier this year, Cuban told CBS’s Sunday Morning that he worked hard to keep his wealth from changing his personality and would be happy with 1% of his net worth. Born to working-class parents in Pittsburgh, Cuban didn’t grow up with the wealth he has today. When Althoff asked when he stopped being poor, Cuban said it was when he was 28 or 29 years old. “But when I was 27, I won’t forget it,” Cuban said. “I went to the ATM, and it showed me a big old zero. So that’s when I was 27. And then got past that, and then bam, bam, bam, bam, bam.”)
