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.)

In my DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 59 in Wheaton, I have hand-delivered a copy of the sample Republican ballot to each of the precinct’s 224 homes and 4 apartments that have at least one registered Republican voter. I am going to hand-deliver to those residences a letter from Annette Corrigan that encourages them to vote for her as a DuPage County Board District 4 write-in candidate.)

Democrat leaders ever-increasingly use DEI to take opportunities away from Republicans who are the aforesaid. My Democrat superiors in the federal government took opportunities away from me big time.

LINDQUIST VON HASEN & JOYCE
— 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.)

— White supremacy goes back to ‘early church’: Oxford professor – MICAIAH BILGER (COMMENT: In my defense, I have always stressed that all my ancestors have always lived in northeast Illinois.)
https://www.thecollegefix.com/white-supremacy-goes-back-to-early-church-oxford-professor/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “The most egregious thing that we have to wrestle with is the normalization of white supremacy,” Reddie said. Although Christianity “was created as a movement for those who are marginalized and oppressed,” he said white leaders quickly began using the religion as a weapon to seize land and oppress other cultures. Reddie traced the distortion back to the early Christians who blamed the Jews for killing Jesus, instead of Roman leader Pontius Pilate, according to the report. “Pilate represents white supremacy, and white supremacy now becomes normalized and effectively becomes the religion of Jesus, the religion of God,” the professor said. As time went on, more and more people began to believe Jesus was a white European, like them, Reddie said.
Baptist News Global reports: That’s why few white Christians flinched at the claim that Jesus called European and American Christians to travel the globe to oppress brown- and Black-skinned people, he said, explaining that a Christianity suffused with white supremacy enabled plantation owners in the American South to see no contradiction between their faith and owning other human beings. “They saw people who are other as inferior and that it was OK to kill or enslave them for their own good.” Those attitudes clearly continue to exist and in the U.S. are evident in the rise of Trumpism, the British scholar said. Because white supremacy has been connected with Christianity for so long, he said it has “distorted the very fabric of what we call Christianity and the nature of church.” The Baylor conference is part of a “three-year sequences of programs on confronting racism in the white church and seeking God’s justice,” according to the event website. More than a dozen pastors, theologians, and Christian leaders participated. Baylor is a private, Protestant Christian university in Texas. Earlier this year, a Catholic university professor also linked white supremacy with the early Christian church in a new book, “Christian Supremacy.” The author, Fordham University Professor Magda Teter, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that white supremacists’ ideology “is rooted in Christian ideas of social and religious hierarchy.”)

https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nicholas-fondacaro/2024/02/23/hostin-conspiracy-gop-only-support-ivf-stave-white
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Good things don’t last long on ABC’s The View. After defending embryos as children earlier in the week, staunchly racist and anti-Semitic co-host Sunny Hostin (the descendant of slave owners) found her angle of attack against Republicans on Friday, in the wake of an Alabama Supreme Court ruling on in vitro fertilization. According to her, the only reason Republicans were now coming out in defense of IVF was because it was how they planned to stave off white people being replaced by minorities. “On the one hand, they want you to not have an abortion and then they also don’t want you to have more children. Make up your minds. Whatever that means,” Friday moderator Joy Behar kvetched, keeping with the narrative that the GOP was trying to stop people from using IVF, for some reason. Before cracking open the lid on her crazy conspiracy theory, Hostin suggested she was on the trail of something major. “I think they do want you to have more children and they just not saying the quiet part out loud,” she teased. “Which is, multicultural Americans are going to become the majority population by 2050,” she began to unwind her crazy. “By 2050, the Hispanic Americans are expected to have the most population growth, an increase of about six percent, while the white population is expected to decrease by about 11 percent. At this time, the birth rate for white Americans in this country has been falling since the great recession and it’s dropped almost 23 percent between 2007 and 2022.”)

(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.)

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.)

— 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.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— To trace the origins of busing migrants to Chicago, start with Donald Trump, Tucker Carlson and Ted Cruz. The Chicago Sun-Times spoke with some of the key decision-makers in Illinois and Texas about the early months of Texas’ continuing program to export migrants to Democratic cities like Chicago. Officials here were caught off guard when Texas Gov. Greg Abbott began shipping busloads of new arrivals in 2022 and were furious when Colorado’s governor and the El Paso, Texas, mayor — Democrats — got in on the act. – Frank Main and Tina Sfondeles

BLOOMINGTON PANTAGRAPH & HERALD & REVIEW
— With tax credit scholarships expiring soon, Illinois schools, parents scramble to fund students’ tuition – ALYSA GUFFEY (COMMENT: 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.)

— 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), a) virtually none of my superiors and supervisors were Republican and b) fewer and fewer and fewer of my coworkers and subordinates were Republican. While I have served as a DuPage County Milton Township Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999, fewer and fewer and fewer of my fellow Precinct Committeemen are conservative, that is, fewer and fewer and fewer are platform Republicans.

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.)

ABC7
— Chicago Auto Show holding Automotive Career Day (COMMENT: My plans for an automotive career ended when I was 22 years old in 1971 when Oldsmobile withdrew a job offer that I had accepted saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. My Firestone Store boss rudely fired me because I had accepted that offer. That directly resulted in my accepting a job offer from IRS.)

WGN RADIO
— GOP challenges Illinois’ judicial policies on female, minority attorneys – Joey Schneider (COMMENT: To give preference to one group is to discriminate against another group. My Democrat superiors and supervisors in the federal government gave preference to their employees who were Democrat, minority, female, younger, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or had ancestors who had not been in America for a long time. That is, they discriminated against their employees who were Republican, White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or had ancestors who had been in America for a long time.)
https://wgnradio.com/news/gop-challenges-illinois-judicial-policies-on-female-minority-attorneys/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Three federal judges in Illinois adopted policies in 2020 that could allow female and minority attorneys extra time to make arguments in various court proceedings. In recent weeks, at least two Republican U.S. Senators and one conservative nonprofit group have challenged these policies. A nonprofit called America First Legal first sent a complaint to U.S. Chief Judge Diane Skyes on Jan. 25, claiming that the three Illinois judges with these policies promoted “unlawful judicial race and sex discrimination.”)

My 1970 financial hardship draft deferment application was approved in 1971 to help support her and my brother.)
