I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes.

I would focus Republican leaders of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, and Wheaton Park District. I would focus on leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization. I would focus on those who focus on a) stopping me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) stopping everyone from reading those newsletters. I would focus on those who succeeded in stopping me from raising funds from DuPage Republicans so that DuPage Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day parade and fireworks. I would focus on those who I have sued.)

RINOs are overjoyed that my Democrat superiors in the federal government wasted my career and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old because I opposed political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination and I became an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. I should write a book about the biggest RINOs in the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization, Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton.)

— 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.)

(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.)
