https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/27/op-ed-with-market-volatility-4-percent-rule-creates-risk-for-retirees.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The 4% rule was hatched in an era in which interest rates were higher, markets less volatile and Americans had shorter lifespans. Given today’s market volatility and changed retirement landscape, it’s safe to assume the 4% rule may be obsolete. Target date funds, mutual funds and exchange traded funds are often used to generate retirement income, yet annuities are the only financial product that was designed for and specifically provide protected lifetime income.)

— Impeachment was a dire distraction from coronavirus for Trump administration – Miranda Devine (DIERSEN: What adverse actions that were taken against you distracted you? The following adverse actions distracted 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 $20,157 (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.)

— Retirees seeking safe investments are paying the price – Michelle Singletary
https://www.telegram.com/news/20200329/michelle-singletary-retirees-seeking-safe-investments-are-paying-price
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The go-to strategy when a financial crisis hits is for the Federal Reserve to cut interest rates. The theory is that, by making borrowing cheaper, consumers will help rev up the economy by buying stuff on credit. But this quick fix has seriously hurt savers, especially those retirees who have sheltered their hard-earned savings away from the stock market. And as the Dow Industrial average continues its hair-raising volatility, more retirees will likely flee to bank-deposit accounts. However, with interest rates now at rock bottom, these savers will be exposed to another major risk — inflation. The government’s fiscal policies punish savers, asserts Sharon Kimball, who retired from the federal government in 2018 after almost 30 years. Kimball, 66, is a regular reader who has long stayed away from investing in equities. For her retirement account under the federal Thrift Savings Plan, she put all her contributions in the G fund, which is invested in short-term U.S. Treasury securities. Kimball’s other retirement savings have all been placed in certificates of deposit (CDs). The Virginia resident said she just couldn’t stomach the roller-coaster ride of investing in stocks or mutual funds. Her hope was for the CDs to produce just enough interest to offset any impact of inflation. Rates on CDs and money market deposit accounts, which are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC), were pretty puny before the spread of COVID-19. But things are about to get even worse for savers who have sought refuge in these federally backed accounts.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some media pundits and politicians appeared to celebrate the U.S. reaching the most novel coronavirus cases in the world in an attempt to dunk on President Donald Trump. Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio tried to call the media out for its “glee & delight in reporting that the U.S. has more CoronaVirus cases than China” on Sunday morning. Many members of the press attacked him for the allegation, despite some of their own co-workers being involved in celebrating the news as a way to attack Trump.)

My uncles on mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII. My father would have fought the Germans during WWII if he had not been 4-F. I should write a book about those who by their words and/or by their actions have made it clear that they are anti-German American. I would focus on my Democrat superiors in the federal government and those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois.

Internships evaporate, career fairs are canceled and some college seniors wonder if they should even bother looking for jobs – Kathryn Dill and Patrick Thomas (DIERSEN: What class were you in? I was in the class of 1970. What negatively impacted your job search? For me, it was my being draft bait. My father had died suddenly in October of 1969. Potential employers did not believe that my financial hardship draft deferment application to support my mother and brother in Crete would be approved. Further, potential employers were under tremendous pressure to hire minorities, females, and veterans. Consequently, I took the only job offer that got — retail sales manager for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights. The job did not really require a college degree. Constructively, I was the store’s salesman. Advancement opportunities were limited and slow. The store’s manager did not approve of my demographics (draft avoider, German-American, and Protestant). He never would have hired me, but Firestone Stores headquarters forced him to take me.)

My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. I just barely made into the upper 20% of my class. My ACT score was only 24.

— Ward, Senate District 25 Republican candidate, vows to reject public pension – T.H. Lawrence (DIERSEN: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and RINOs are nasty. If I sought a government office, for example, Wheaton West District City Counsel, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would stress that I get a $54,168/year Civil Service Retirement System pension and a $18,000+/year federal health, dental, and vision insurance subsidy. They would hint/imply/argue/shout that the aforesaid is grossly excessive and that the federal government grossly overpaid me. Further, they would stress that I am a Trump supporter, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, heterosexual, old (born in 1948), non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, Crete resident 1948-1972, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. Further, they would stress that I oppose the promotion of dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation for opposing the aforesaid. Further, they would stress that I have been a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999 and the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000. My critics/opponents in Wheaton are extremely nasty and have lots of religious, government, political, and financial clout. I should write a book about the aforesaid who claim to religious, conservative, and/or Republican. Better yet, I should sue them.)

http://www.windycitymediagroup.com/lgbt/Census-2020-The-LGBTQ-community-counts/68257.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The LGBTQ+ community has always played a vital part in this nation’s history and success. We are not a minor population subset. We are a powerful constituency made even more impactful because we cross racial, ethnic, religious, income, gender and many other intersectional identities. An accurate Census count of our community is critical to ensuring programs that address our unique needs are fairly funded. It will also highlight the importance of our political voice which, in a democracy like ours, is critical. If we are not counted then we won’t count. It’s that simple. This year, for the first time in census history, same-sex couples will be able to declare their existence on the census form. While imperfect and incomplete, it represents an important step towards recognizing our community. We will continue to work on future Census, so that everyone in our community are counted and counted for who they are. But for now, we need to seize the moment and have our voices be heard.)

https://patch.com/illinois/naperville/best-case-scenario-august-peak-virus-dupage-county
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If severe control measures including strict social distancing are not put in place, coronavirus infections could top 210,000 in DuPage County by early May — 23 percent or more of the population. That’s the conclusion of Columbia University researchers as reported by the New York Times, which compiled maps showing the estimated spread of the virus in every county in America under varying scenarios for control measures. Under the best-case scenario, including strict imposition of measures like closing schools, banning mass gatherings, and testing and quarantining sick people and their contacts, the peak of infection could be pushed past July 31, with as few as 9,000 cases — just 1 percent of the DuPage County population. But even in a scenario falling somewhere between these two extremes, the number of infections could top 160,000 by the middle of June, about 18 percent of the population, the researchers concluded.)

https://www.seattletimes.com/business/local-business/as-advertising-dries-up-amid-coronavirus-shutdown-washington-news-outlets-lay-off-staff/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Coronavirus has infected Washington’s media ecosystem. The statewide shutdown of most businesses and a halt to events, ordered to slow the virus’s spread, have dried up advertising revenues at news outlets across the state. Layoffs and furloughs have followed, putting additional pressure on the remaining reporters and editors, who are already working overtime — and usually working from home — to feed the public’s need for news about the virus. Almost no paper in Washington has remained unscathed.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Media readership and viewership is soaring as citizens seek life-or-death information about the coronavirus: Where to get tested? Does my hospital have enough ventilators? Is it safe to go outside? But the accompanying economic decline is killing off advertising – for restaurants, cars, travel, entertainment – and other support that has kept many news organizations going. For some, the events of the past few weeks have already proved too much for their fragile existence. Alternative weeklies have stopped printing. Local dailies are laying off staff at already decimated newsrooms. Many others, including digital-only newsrooms, are hanging on by a thread. It’s happening around the world: Newspapers in Australia and Britain announced in the past few days that they were going out of business or suspending print publication. “Journalists are essential in this moment,” Craig Aaron, president and co-CEO of Free Press, a Washington-based advocacy nonprofit, told me in an interview. “We need to keep reporters working, and we have to do it now.”)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— FROM THE ARTICLE: Voter turnout overall, however, is expected to drop. And conventional wisdom says that generally favors party-backed candidates and those with strong field organizations, potentially giving Rep. Dan Lipinski and Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx more of a leg-up. There’s a lot going on and your crystal ball and tea leaves are shrugging. But we can tell you five contests worth watching: . .Oberweis v. Rezin: Those are the two names to watch in this heated Republican primary that will decide who competes against freshman Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood in November. Jim Oberweis and Sue Rezin have been feuding in recent days, ever since Rezin has filed a federal election complaint accusing Oberweis of employing a scheme to circumvent campaign finance rules. Along with the unpredictability of the coronavirus, this race has five other candidates in the hunt. So anything can happen. – Shia Kapos)

— FROM THE ARTICLE: EARLY VOTING NUMBERS in Chicago and Cook County were up going into today’s election. Chicago saw early voting rise 22.5 percent from 2016, according to the Chicago Board of Elections, and most of the increase came Monday. Early voting this year totaled 171,709, compared with 140,148. On Monday alone, 25,781 voters cast ballots, compared to 9,821 on the day prior to Election Day 2016. In the surrounding suburbs, early voting rose 46 percent, from 114,021 in 2016 to 166,613 this year, according to the Cook County Clerk’s Office. The reason: Gov. J.B. Pritzker, Mayor Lori Lightfoot and other elected officials pounded the drum for voters to get to the polls early to help decrease the potential for crowds during the coronavirus outbreak. – Shia Kapos

DAILY CALLER
— Tucker Carlson: Shutting Down Economy Poses ‘Its Own Kind Of Public Health Risk’ – SCOTT MOREFIELD (DIERSEN: To defeat Trump, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and RINOs do everything that they can to destroy America’s economy.)
https://dailycaller.com/2020/03/16/tucker-carlson-shutting-down-economy-health-risk/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Fox News host Tucker Carlson struck a balanced approach between epidemiologists who would argue for shutting everything down to fight the coronavirus pandemic and those concerned that an economic recession and even depression could pose “its own kind of public health risk.” Acknowledging the “major threat to the country” that coronavirus poses, Carlson pointed out the fact that there is “no clear consensus on how the country should respond.” “That should not surprise you,” said the Fox News host on Monday night’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “People of good faith are working toward a couple of different goals tonight which at times collide with one another.” While the “first obligation” is always public safety and should be accomplished if possible, Carlson pointed out that protecting the economy should also be considered. “At the same time though, we need to protect our economy, and it’s not just something that Wall Street cares about, to be totally clear,” he said. “Economic decline is dangerous for everyone, especially at the bottom of the economy. It’s a legitimate human concern. It’s not just financial, it’s about families.” The “two imperatives” can “often conflict,” the Fox News host contended. “So if you ask an epidemiologist what we ought to do next, the answer is simple: shut it down, close every public space until the virus passes.” “From a public health standpoint, that makes sense, but what would be the consequences of doing that?” he asked. “Millions and millions of people would lose their jobs, some of them for good. We would enter a severe recession with mass unemployment and it could get worse from there. It’s not a joke, that could happen. You would see an awful lot of people in poverty in middle America and that poses its own kind of public health risk. Poor countries are never healthy countries. If you want great health care, you’ve got to pay for it and you have to have money to do so.” Any proper response “requires balance” and is a “complex question” with “no obvious answers.” Later in the monologue, Carlson warned against printing cheap money and eventually entering a situation where the U.S. “becomes Zimbabwe.” “It’s missing the point anyway,” he said. “The real imperative is saving jobs. For government bureaucrats and administrators and corporate H.R. directors, a month out of the office constitutes a vacation, but for the classes below, it could be the beginning of a long spiral, a real one. Of waiters, bartenders, retail workers, huge parts of the service industry on which we are dependent could see their income dropped to zero and not come back.” Carlson called the “guaranteed basic income” proposed by Utah Sen. Mitt Romney a “well-meaning” idea but in actuality “decadent and foolish.” “Name a place that’s become happier and more prosperous under a scheme like that,” he said before lauding the German system that allows employers to place their workers on “reduced hours” with the government making up the difference.)

Nor is it ignorance. Rather, it boils down to raw self-interest. In his book, The Age of Entitlement: America Since the Sixties, Christopher Caldwell notes that rich Americans think themselves to be as vulnerable as blacks. They are a relatively small minority of the population. They fear being resented for their wealth and power and of having much of that taken from them. Accordingly, the wealthy seek to protect what is theirs by preventing strong majorities from forming by using the divide and conquer principle. As R.R. Reno writes when reviewing Caldwell’s book: “Therefore, the richest and most powerful people in America have strong incentives to support an anti-majoritarian political system.” He goes on: “Wealthy individuals shovel donations into elite institutions that incubate identity politics, which further fragments the nation and prevents the formation of majorities.” Some of the rotten fruit of the wealthy taking this approach include multiculturalism, massive immigration of diverse people, resistance to encouraging assimilation, racial strife, trying to turn white males into pariahs, and the promotion of gender confusion. Through it all, society is bombarded with the Orwellian mantra that “diversity is strength,” as if repeating it often enough can make it so. It is also why patriotism and a common American culture are so disparaged today. Those from the upper strata of society project the idea that if you’re a flag-waving American, you must be some kind of retrograde mouth-breathing yokel. The wealthy as a groups are content to dissolve the glue that holds the U.S. together. And it is all done to enhance and preserve their power, wealth, and influence. This is why they so hate Donald Trump. He strives to unite people and the country, although you’d never know that that is what the president is doing if you live in the media bubble. Trump’s MAGA agenda is an anathema to the managerial class.)
