— DAMN IT FEELS GOOD TO BE A FEDERAL EMPLOYEE – John Gray  (DIERSEN: Many millions have not and will not seek a job with the federal government a) because the pay and benefits are terrible, b) because the advancement opportunities are terrible, c) because they lack required education, work experience, professional certifications, and/or professional licenses, d) because they cannot pass a background investigation, e) because they cannot pass a physical examination, f) because they cannot take the demonization, denigration, and condemnation that comes with being a federal employee or federal retiree, and/or g) because they are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran and they know that the federal government discriminates against its employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran. Non-veteran White males who are seeking a job with the federal government should be advised that except for rare exceptions, a) the longer that you are a federal employee, the less likely that private sector employers will hire you, b) your career will be wasted and you will be gotten rid of if you do not make GS-13 ($92,632) by age 25, GS-14 ($109,463) by age 30, GS-15 ($128,759) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service ($160,300) by age 40, c) you will be expected to help your superiors and supervisors get rid of their employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran, and d) virtually everyone despises if not hates federal employees, former federal employees, and federal retirees.)

GOPUSA
— Student loan lunacy  (DIERSEN: My Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the courses that I took to earn a bachelor’s degree, three master’s degrees, and two professional certifications a) were not job-related, b) did not help me carry out my job duties, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and d) were a distraction.  They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, a minority, a females, or a veteran.)
http://www.gopusa.com/student-loan-lunacy/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: College students whose majors don’t turn out as they envision will be able to walk away from their loan debt simply by claiming their schools bamboozled them, as allowed under a new rule. Proposed by the Department of Education, published in June in the Federal Register and scheduled for approval on Nov. 1, the rule will allow students to “discharge” their federal student loan obligation if they can show — and rather broadly — that they were hoodwinked by a university’s “misrepresentation.” This easy out would leave taxpayers and colleges on the hook for between $2 billion and $43 billion over the next 10 years, according to a federal estimate. And what could be easier than for the lame-duck administration, in its 11th-hour regulatory push, to ship off this sour tart and simply walk away? For starters, the rule is entirely unnecessary. An existing provision allows students to sue for loan forgiveness in cases of intentional fraud or in other violations of law. What’s proposed is preposterously unspecific, leaving schools with little recourse. It’s akin to allowing mortgage holders to dump their loans because they picked the wrong neighborhood in which to reside. In the end, this latest get-out-of-debt free nonsense helps no one. It simply abrogates personal responsibility. And unfortunately for young people sucked into these liberal escapades, life is not so forgiving.)

Of course, needless-to-say, they did that to justify getting rid of their employees like me who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.  My Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates demonized, denigrated, and condemned the experience that I had gained a) working for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 level (currently $77,899-$88,286), b) passing the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations, c) earning a job-related bachelor’s degree and three job-related master’s degrees, d) serving on the executive committee of a job-related professional association for 12 years, e) working for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 level (currently $92,632-$120,427), f) etc.  They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, a minority, a female, younger, or a veteran.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The authors note: “An older worker’s experience increases not only his own productivity but also the productivity of those who work with him.” All else equal, experienced workers are more productive. One study found that productivity peaks at age 50, when productivity is 60% higher than for the average 20 year old.)

— Trump’s Purple Heart Draws Rebuke From Illinois Vets – Charlie De Mar
http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2016/08/02/trumps-purple-heart-draws-rebuke-from-illinois-vets/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Tuesday showed off a Purple Heart he received from a supporter, just days after feuding with the parents of a U.S. soldier killed in action. “I always wanted to get the Purple Heart,” he said at a campaign stop Tuesday. “This was much easier, but I tell you it was such an honor.” The Purple Heart is given to soldiers who are wounded in combat and many veterans are upset the Trump accepted it, especially after he received five deferments to avoid the Vietnam War. Thomas Kapsalis received a Purple Heart in World War II, after he was wounded in the Battle of the Bulge. His leg was nearly blown off and he still has shrapnel in his body. “All hell broke loose, airplanes coming and bombing us, and I was up on the front lines,” he told CBS 2’s Charlie De Mar. He was held captive for five months and was awarded the Purple Heart for his bravery and sacrifice. When he enlisted, he said, he was “afraid to even shoot my rifle.” “You cannot get the Purple Heart unless you shed blood,” Kapsalis said. Trump’s remarks are not sitting well with him. “I don’t understand why he’s saying that,” Kapsalis said. Illinois congresswoman Tammy Duckworth posted a photo on Twitter of her with her Purple Heart, with a message directed at Donald Trump.)

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH GRAPHICS: Taxpayers cover $4 million in teachers’ college costs – Jake Griffin  (DIERSEN: While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, except for some small tuition reimbursements, I used my time and my money to earn a job-related bachelor’s degree, three job-related master’s degrees, and two job-related professional certifications. My Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the courses a) were not job-related, b) did not help me carry out my job duties, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and d) were a distraction.  They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, a minority, a female, or a veteran.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20160803/news/160809691/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Taxpayers in 70 suburban school districts paid more than $4 million last year to send 3,085 teachers back to college. The tuition reimbursement programs are meant to attract and keep teachers. But they do more than that. Since teachers’ salaries are commonly tied to their education levels, taxpayers essentially are paying to help teachers make more money. And since salaries are the biggest driver of teacher pension costs, those taxpayer-funded classes are also helping increase pension obligations. Tuition reimbursement for teachers came to nearly a half-million dollars in both Palatine-Schaumburg High School District 211 and Northwest Suburban High School District 214. Other school districts spent far less, and some, like Elgin Area School District U-46 and Naperville Unit District 203, have no tuition coverage for teachers and spent nothing. That’s according to school district financial records obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests.)

SPRINGFIELD STATE JOURNAL REGISTER
— Rauner signs bill altering health care ‘right of conscience’ law – Dean Olsen (DIERSEN: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform.  In Illinois, if you are not going to defend and advance the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) platform, you should not seek or hold any kind of government or political office as a Republican.  The Illinois Democrat Party (IDP) platform promotes abortion.  The IRP platform discourages abortion.  One could argue that if you sign bills that promote the IDP platform, you are a Democrat.)
http://www.sj-r.com/news/20160802/rauner-signs-bill-altering-health-care-right-of-conscience-law
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Opponents of the bill included the Illinois Family Institute, which said the changes in the more than 40-year-old law — recognized previously as one of the broadest in the country — will reduce religious freedom. “It is going to force pro-life doctors and nurses to violate their conscience,” David E. Smith, executive director of the not-for-profit institute, said Tuesday. However, Brigid Leahy, Planned Parenthood’s director of public policy, said: “This is not a violation of religious freedom. The whole purpose of this is to prevent harm. Religious rights should not be allowed to cause harm to another person.” Smith said the Tinley Park-based institute was “extremely disappointed” in Rauner. “We thought he was for smaller government and individual rights,” Smith said. “Instead, he chose to side with the Democrats and tyrannical government.” Asked to respond, Rauner spokesman Andrew Flach said in an email, without elaborating, that Rauner “has never pushed a social agenda and remains committed to government, economic and education reforms that can turn around Illinois.”)
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Sex advocates glorify and praise Rauner. According to this article, Rauner spokesman Andrew Flach said, “Gov. Rauner has never pushed a social agenda.”  If you sign bills that push the Democrat Party’s social agenda, you are not a Republican.)

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/election-2016-how-leaders-can-keep-employees-focused-on-work-not-politics-300308374.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As the Presidential election heats up, employees are spending more time watching the news, checking their social media accounts and hanging out by the water cooler discussing the candidates – all at the expense of lost productivity and possibly igniting personnel conflicts that will simmer long after the votes are cast. “This election year is running high on emotion, ugly rhetoric, and polarization. Unfortunately, some of the angst associated with the issues of the election are creeping into the workplace. People are angry. Angry people are less productive. What does a great leader do?” asks Mary C. Kelly, PhD., co-author of the new leadership book, “Why Leaders Fail.” She and co-author, Peter B. Stark created a list of five guidelines for leaders who want to succeed: 1. Raise the bar and set expectations for performance. Employees who have a lot of time to talk about politics do not have enough to do. Make it clear to your teams that what we do is important, and we need everyone to focus on doing their job to succeed. 2. Demand a culture of respect. Make sure everyone knows that there will always be differences of opinions, but in the workplace we will always have a culture of respect. You don’t have to like other people’s opinions, but you do have to respect the fact that they are entitled to opinions that are different from yours. You may not like someone’s politics, but that doesn’t mean you get to disrespect them. 3. Remind employees of uniting factors. Ultimately what unites us is a desire to work, provide for our families, and make a difference in the world. We all want to be successful, support others, and be a positive role model in the community. Remind people that at work, we need to stay focused on what unites us: the mission, vision and goals of the company. 4. Agree to disagree. Leaders know not everyone is going to agree on every decision or every issue, and that is true in the workplace as well as politics Allow people the freedom to respectfully discuss, but make sure the diatribe remains thoughtful, civil, and respectful. 5. Limit distractions. Most of our clients in the business world have one thing in common. They complain they have way too much to do and not enough time to get all their work done. We cannot waste time with distraction. Leaders can help limit distractions by holding people accountable for the on-time achievement of their goals. Emotions are running high this year because voters perceive that their leaders have failed them. In their 2016 book, “Why Leaders Fail and the 7 Prescriptions for Success” the authors analyze why good people, when promoted, hired or elected, so often fail. One of the top failures happens when leaders lose the trust of the people they are supposed to lead. “Trust is hard to earn and easy to lose,” said Stark, CEO of Peter Barron Stark Companies says. “And it can happen when leaders often are not paying attention to what matters to their people.” Another failure is when leaders try so hard to be popular that they allow their need to be l­­iked to interfere or even dictate their decision. “We all want to be liked on some level,” agrees Kelly, CEO of Productive Leaders, “but relying on popularity to run an organization guarantees failure.” Good leadership is difficult and it can be tough, especially when the employees are worried about outside influences. Leaders have to stay focused so their people stay focused. Leadership means making decisions that are right for the organization and its people.)

http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/pope-not-right-to-talk-about-violent-terrorist-islam/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Pope Francis said Sunday he won’t label Islam as “terrorist” because that would be unfair and not true. Reporters aboard the papal plane flying him home after a pilgrimage to Poland, the day after extremists slit the throat of an elderly priest celebrating Mass in a French church, asked him why he never uses the word “Islam” to describe terrorism or other violence. While in Poland, Francis made an unscheduled stop at a church in Krakow to implore God to protect people from the “devastating wave” of terrorism in many parts of the world. When asked why he didn’t describe the priest’s murder and other attacks as Islamic terrorism, Francis replied he won’t do that because “it’s not right to identify Islam with violence. It’s not right and it’s not true.”  “I believe that in every religion there is always a little fundamentalist group,” he said. “I don’t like to talk of Islamic violence because, every day, when I go through the newspapers, I see violence, this man who girls his girlfriend, another who kills his mother-in-law,” Francis said, in apparent reference to crime news in predominantly Catholic Italy. “And these are baptized Catholics. If I speak of Islamic violence, then I have to speak of Catholic violence.” “In Islam, not all are violent, not all the Catholics are violent,” he said. “It’s like a fruit salad, everything’s in there. Noting he has spoken with imams, he concluded: “I know how they think, they are looking for peace.”  As for ISIS, he said, the Islamic State group “presents itself with a violent identity card, but that’s not Islam.” Francis spoke on the day when Muslims in France and Italy flocked to Sunday Mass in a show of interfaith solidarity following a string of extremist attacks threatening to sharpen religious divides across Europe.)

— Christian County Sheriff Reacts To New Marijuana Law
http://foxillinois.com/news/local/christian-county-sheriff-reacts-to-new-marijuana-law-08-01-2016
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Christian County sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp is condemning Illinois’ new marijuana decriminalization law. Governor Bruce Rauner signed the bill Friday removing criminal penalties for possession of small amounts of marijuana. Now possession of 10 grams of marijuana or less is considered a civil violation, similar to a traffic ticket. Kettelkamp says the change won’t save his department time, because drugs can lead to more serious crimes. “I think this is a big mistake for our legislators. I just wish the legislators would just spend one day, or a couple days, in law enforcement’s shoes and see from the people that use marijuana,” said Kettelkamp. Kettelkamp tells us he’s worried the new law sends the wrong message to kids who might now think it’s acceptable to use marijuana.)

http://www.nytimes.com/1996/03/13/us/seeking-return-to-ways-of-patronage-in-politics.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It is no secret that the fabled Democratic machine in Chicago stole a vote or two for John F. Kennedy in the 1960 Presidential election. It is less well-known that Republicans in downstate Illinois were padding the vote for Richard M. Nixon. In fact, while political machines have traditionally been regarded as the offspring of the Democratic Party in big cities, the Illinois Republican Party has hardly been a slouch in flexing its political muscle, known in the state simply as clout. The party has long dominated the suburbs and smaller cities, and throughout the 1980’s, when James R. Thompson was Governor, a job applicant typically needed a letter of endorsement from a party leader. So perhaps it is fitting that Republican politicians here are rising to the defense of political patronage. In 1990 the United States Supreme Court, ruling in a case brought by five frustrated job seekers against the Republican Party of Illinois, outlawed political favoritism in all government hiring except for policy-making posts, saying that only merit should count. This was a strange concept in Illinois, where the spoils system had always been rather the point of politics. This spring the issue is heading for the Court again in a different case, and Gov. Jim Edgar, a Republican, filed a brief last month asking the Justices to reverse its ban on government favoritism. He argues that patronage actually helps the democratic system. As another top Republican here, State Representative Lee Daniels, put it, patronage “doesn’t need to be a dirty word.” In response, civil libertarians say it is an embarrassment for the state to have political leaders arguing against meritocracy. “It seems only in Illinois,” said Harvey Grossman, the head of the American Civil Liberties Union office in Chicago, “would state officials be willing to publicly endorse the corrosive practice” of patronage. But Jeffrey Coleman, a lawyer for Governor Edgar, said it was simply logical for a political leader to prefer workers who are friends, rather than foes. “George Washington and Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson and every administration at the Federal and state level for 200 years used political consideration in hiring,” Mr. Coleman said. “And it seems rather ironic that nine men and women who were appointed to the Supreme Court for political reasons would say that politics should play no role in the selection of public employees.”)

http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/careers/ijustworkhere/ct-huppke-work-advice-knowledge-transfer-0731-biz-20160728-column.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As members of the baby-boom generation continue to selfishly retire, waltzing off to engage in ridiculous activities like “enjoying life” and “relaxing,” the rest of us are left with the drudgery of work and, in many cases, a notable lack of institutional knowledge. According to the Pew Research Center, 10,000 baby boomers are reaching age 65 each day. While it’s been on the horizon for years, the reality of the boomer brain drain is still catching companies off guard, making “knowledge transfer” the buzzword du jour. Before veteran workers depart, it’s crucial they pass along not just a rough outline of how they do their jobs or a filing cabinet stuffed with old manuals and reports but some of the deeper knowledge gained from years of experience. It’s something Dorothy Leonard, a professor of business administration at Harvard Business School and co-founder of the consulting firm Leonard-Barton Group, calls “tacit knowledge.”)

http://www.news-gazette.com/news/local/2016-07-31/tom-kacich-hillary-made-news-even-when-she-was-22.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: By the time she was 22 years old Hillary Rodham had been elected student body president at Wellesley College, had given the first-ever student commencement speech at the Massachusetts college that is still exclusively for women, had been featured in an issue of Life magazine, had been accused on the front page of the Boston Globe of upstaging a U.S. senator and had been denounced in an editorial by her hometown newspaper, the Chicago Tribune. Even 900 miles away at the University of Illinois, Rodham was mentioned by Illinois Gov. Richard Ogilvie in a commencement address as representative of the student idealism of that time. All of that attention 47 or more years ago undoubtedly prepared Rodham — the future Hillary Clinton — for a lifetime in the public eye, including a historic run for president. The one-time “Goldwater Girl” from Park Ridge shed her conservative values while at Wellesley and within four years had moved 180 degrees politically, backing anti-war Democrat Sen. Eugene McCarthy for president in 1968. She became a student leader, ran for president of the student government and on May 31, 1969, gave the commencement speech that attracted so much attention. Ruth Adams, the president of Wellesley, introduced Rodham as “cheerful, good humored, good company and a good friend to all of us.” In her prepared remarks Rodham talked mostly of her classes’ time at Wellesley, of protests and demonstrations, and shared power and responsibility, and of the value of education.)

 

HERALD & REVIEW
— Legislators: Big pay for a part-time job – Editorial  (DIERSEN: Who hints/implies/argues/shouts that you are/were overpaid?  The following hint/imply/argue/shout that the federal government overpaid me: those who are anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors. Many millions have not and will not seek a job with the federal government a) because the pay and benefits are terrible, b) because the advancement opportunities are terrible, c) because they lack required education, work experience, professional certifications, and/or professional licenses, d) because they cannot pass a background investigation, e) because they cannot pass a physical examination, f) because they cannot take the demonization, denigration, and condemnation that comes with being a federal employee or federal retiree, and/or g) because they are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran and they know that the federal government discriminates against its employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Most folks would say that a salary of $100,000 for a full-time job is a pretty good gig. A six-figure salary for a part-time job is the stuff of fantasy. Except for the Illinois General Assembly, where the majority of members pull down more than $100,000 a year for what is a part-time job. For taxpayers, the news gets worse. When other costs such as pension, mileage, per diem payments and insurance are figured in, taxpayers pay about $32 million a year to the 177 legislators, according to a new report by the Illinois Policy Institute. Illinois legislators are the highest paid in the Midwest and fifth-highest in the nation. It should be noted that this group of 177 legislators have combined to turn Illinois into the worst-run state in the nation. Pay for performance isn’t part of the formula.)
