ALTON DAILY NEWS
— Challenges Anticipated with Legal Weed – Doug Jenkins (DIERSEN: QUESTIONS TO ASK CANDIDATES: Have you ever used recreational weed? If so, exactly when and exactly how much? If so, why did you disrespect the rule of law? Are you going to use recreational weed when it is legal? If so, exactly how often and exactly how much? What do you say to people who impair themselves? Have you ever driven a vehicle while you were dunk or incapacitated? If so, exactly when? If so, why did you disrespect the rule of law? What do you say to people who impair themselves?) 
http://altondailynews.com/news/details.cfm?clientid=17&id=292314#.XaRSrL5_OM8
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While there are established, accepted and legally binding blood alcohol levels when determining when someone is drunk or incapacitated, no such tests exist to see if you are high on marijuana. With recreational weed becoming legal in Illinois next year, that has employers trying to figure out policy on how to address its use. A spokesman from OSF Healthcare outlines some of the challenges. Troy Overholt, Vice President for Occupational Health at OSF HealthCare admits to employers that while it may be risky and has yet to be challenged in court, monitoring for marijuana impairment in an employee may need to be less scientific and more observational. There is no scientifically reliable way to measure for marijuana intoxication. THC is stored in fat cells, so the length of time it’s in your system is not a blood test level. So, he says you could test high today from use weeks or months ago, and it depends greatly on frequency and the amount of use.)

You should expect that the more of the following that you are, the more reparations that you will have to pay: Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owner, German American, draft avoider, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time. Of course, the Democrats will bankrupt you if any of your ancestors owned slaves, fought for the Confederacy, lived south of the Mason-Dixon Line, etc.)

They stress that my 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 $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

— Women still get fired for being pregnant, as Elizabeth Warren says she was in 1971 Walmart, UPS and other major employers have faced charges of mistreating pregnant workers – Leslie Albrecht (DIERSEN: In 1971, when I was 22 years old, Firestone Stores fired me because I accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile. But Oldsmobile withdrew that job offer saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. Of course, to force an employee to retire is to fire that employee. In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me retire, that is, they fired me. They fired me a) because I was an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, b) because I had complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, c) because I refused to help them get rid of their employees who were Republican White, male, and/or non-veteran because they had not made GS-13 (currently $98,198) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $116,040) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $136,495) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $165,500) by age 40, and d) because many of my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates despised many of my demographics including my being Republican, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844.)

CAPITOL FAX
— Sanguinetti bows out of congressional race From Evelyn Sanguinetti via a campaign spokesperson… It is with deep regret that I must announce that I have officially decided to end my campaign for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Congress for the 6th Congressional District of Illinois. I want to thank everyone that supported me through volunteering, financial contributions, and words of encouragement and support. I am sorry if this announcement lets you down. Although I firmly believe that I can and will win the nomination if I stayed in the race, the question in my mind is at what cost. There has been enough destruction in the Republican Party from past election cycles, and I choose not to contribute further to it by engaging in a costly and negative campaign against my opponents. I wish the remaining candidates all the best, and I encourage all Republicans to unite behind the eventual nominee for the good of the Party and more importantly the Nation as we continue the fight to stop socialism and to protect the American Dream for future generations.

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.)

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.)

You’ve never experienced one, so shut up! I don’t want to hear from you! Just stop Dan, just stop Deno. You are not oppressed and people in Oak Park and we are trying to recognize that as a community.” Buchanan’s comments drew a round of applause from the audience.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Where pot is sold, it brings down everything and everyone around it. How close is a “Disproportionately Impacted Area” (DIA) to where you live or work? Illinois Democrats want pot shops to open up in DIAs to revitalize those areas. Wheaton is the DuPage County Seat. The Democrats who run the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (IDCEO) have outrageously designated western Wheaton as being a DIA, that is, an area that has high rates of arrest, conviction, and incarceration related to cannabis as well as poverty and unemployment. Needless-to-say, that must be a mistake. While Wheaton has banned the sale of pot, the Democrats who run Illinois may very well vote to allow pot shops in DIAs thereby overriding Wheaton’s ban. I ask the following and everyone else who has an interest in Wheaton to ask the IDCEO to immediately rescind its DIA designation: Wheaton Mayor and City Council members, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Milton Township officers and trustees, DuPage County Board Chairman and County Board members, and federal and Illinois officials who represent or seek to represent any part of Wheaton.

According to the IDCEO, it designates a census tract as being a DIA if the area 1) has a poverty rate of at least 20%, 2) has 75% or more of its children participate in the federal free lunch program, 3) has an average unemployment rate that is more than 120% of the national average for a period of at least 2 consecutive calendar years, 4) has at least 20% of its households receive assistance under the supplemental nutrition assistance program, or 5) has high rates of arrest, conviction, and incarceration related to the sale, possession, use, cultivation, manufacture, or transport of cannabis.

According to the IDCEO, it designated Census Tract 8426.04 in western Wheaton (https://censusreporter.org/profiles/14000US17043842604-census-tract-842604-dupage-il/  and https://www.chicagocityscape.com/maps/index.php?place=censustract-17043842604) as a DIA because a) according to Illinois Department of Employment Security data, it had an average unemployment rate over the last two calendar years that exceeded the national average over that time period by more than 20% and b) because the per-capita rate of parolees residing in the area who had been imprisoned for cannabis offenses exceeded the cutoff for a high imprisonment rate. According to the IDCEO, “Unemployment rate data is from Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES). Data on parolees is from Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC). Per-capita rate is determined using census tract population from the 2013-2017 American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year Estimates.” From what I see, one or both of the aforesaid must be a mistake. If Census Tract 8426.04 in western Wheaton as a DIA, than all of Illinois is a DIA.

I have asked the IDCEO to provide me ASAP with the specific sources of the following data concerning Census Tract 8426.04: “According to IDES data, it had an average unemployment rate over the last two calendar years that exceeded the national average over that time period by more than 20%” and “The per-capita rate of parolees residing in the area who had been imprisoned for cannabis offenses exceeded the cutoff for a high imprisonment rate.”

Again, I ask the following and everyone else who has an interest in Wheaton to ask the IDCEO to immediately rescind its DIA designation: Wheaton Mayor and City Council members, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Milton Township officers and trustees, DuPage County Board Chairman and County Board members, and federal and Illinois officials who represent or seek to represent any part of Wheaton.

– Top ten reasons why “leaders” who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican do not encourage anyone to read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com
– They are Democrats or Democrat plants, Libertarians or Libertarian plants, Greens or Green plants, or RINOs.
– They reject the traditional family, right to life, immigration, Second Amendment, illegal drugs, equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving), and other planks in the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) platform and the Republican Party platform.
– They promote dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, booze, gambling, pot and other vices, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, retaliation, and even worse things.
– They focus on forcing out Milton Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, IRP, etc. members who they cannot manipulate/dominate and those who are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, White, male, older, gun owners, German American, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.

— Even Amid Low Unemployment, Many Workers Struggle Finding A Job – Christian Weller (DIERSEN: What has frustrated your job searches? Since 1997, the following things have frustrated my job searches: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer.” Previous to that, they 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 $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. They would not have taken the aforesaid adverse actions against me if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran.)
