I worked for GAO as an Analyst for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $101,176-$131,532/year. I worked on audits of federal financial institution regulators for almost 9 years, on audits of IRS for 3 years, and on audits of many other federal agencies, including Railroad Retirement Board, Department of Defense, U.S. Postal Service, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Energy, Department of Transportation, Immigration and Naturalization Service, General Service Administration, Federal Highway Administration, Department of Labor, Federal Aviation Administration, Veteran Administration, Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Department of Health and Human Services, for almost 6 years. I worked for IRS as a Revenue Officer for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $85,084-$96,431/year. I worked for the Post Office as a part time carrier/clerk for almost 3 years at the GS-4 Step 1-3 levels, currently $16.64-$17.75/hour. I learned a lot about federal court procedures as an active member in a class action lawsuit and as the plaintiff in two lawsuits. I learned a lot about arbitration procedures as a grievant four grievances and as a Financial Regulatory Authority arbitrator since 1998).

DAYTONA BEACH NEWS JOURNAL
— Volusia Republican dominance: Gap between GOP, Democrats growing – Mark Harper (DIERSEN: What percent of the voters in your precinct, municipal district, municipality, township, and county a) unethically cast Republican primary ballots to do whatever damage that they can to the Republican Party and b) vote for Democrats in general elections?)
https://www.news-journalonline.com/news/20200211/volusia-republican-dominance-gap-between-gop-democrats-growing
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The gap between Republicans and Democrats in Volusia County is now more than 7,000 and growing, as the GOP’s ground game and the demographics of who’s moving to the Daytona Beach area are contributing factors to a reddening county. But for Sunshine State voters who want a say, there is a significant deadline approaching. They must be registered as a Democrat or a Republican by next Tuesday, Feb. 18, in order to vote on March 17. Florida remains a closed-primary state. For presidential preference primaries, NPAs have no say. In Volusia County, more than 3 in 10 registered voters are ineligible to vote for President Trump, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg or anyone else in March. That’s in large part because considerably more and more Floridians are not signing up with the parties.)

Eva-Genevieve Scarborough thanked city council members for their support during a meeting last week, saying now is the time for the city’s LGBTQ residents to become more outspoken. “For a long time, we have, of necessity, kept a low profile because who we are by nature was considered too controversial,” Scarborough said.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— After Facebook settles class action, Google is sued – JOHN PLETZ (DIERSEN: Have you ever been a member of a class in a class action lawsuit? I was. In 1988, when I was 40 years old, I became an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged my Democrat GAO superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. The members of the class were GAO employees who were White, male, and over age 40. The lawsuit failed because instead of uniting, class members “cut deals” with their Democrat superiors “under the table” to keep their jobs. Class members agreed to help their Democrat superiors get rid of other class members. I should write a book about the class members in GAO’s Chicago office who did everything that they could to get rid of me to keep their jobs. They kept me off audits of IRS. They gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals. They always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes. They did not promote me beyond GS-13. They stressed the following to demonize me, to denigrate me, and to condemn me: a) I was conservative, b) I was Republican, c) I had avoided the draft, d) I was baptized, raised and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, e) I was 100% German American, f) I lived in Crete 1948-1972, g) I had lived in Wheaton since 1978, h) my wife had a good job and we had retirement savings, i) my wife and I had given up trying to have children, j) we did not adopt, k) we did not become foster parents, l) I had owned a 1972 Corvette since 1971, a 1962 Chevy Impala SS collector car since 1989, and a 1968 Dodge Charger R/T collector car since 1994, m) my ancestors had been in America since 1844, n) etc. And then, in 1997, when I was 49 years old, they helped my GAO superiors force me to take their early retirement “offer.”)

I worked for GAO as an Analyst for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $101,176-$131,532/year. I worked on audits of federal financial institution regulators for almost 9 years, on audits of IRS for 3 years, and on audits of many other federal agencies, including Railroad Retirement Board, Department of Defense, U.S. Postal Service, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Energy, Department of Transportation, Immigration and Naturalization Service, General Service Administration, Federal Highway Administration, Department of Labor, Federal Aviation Administration, Veteran Administration, Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Department of Health and Human Services, for almost 6 years.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Kinzler’s campaign employs two paid staff members. His team also is made up of “a bunch of loyal volunteers,” including a “kitchen cabinet” of 20 people handling duties such as campaign literature and high school outreach. He said this approach represents his view that politics shouldn’t be a long-term gig. “I believe that representing the people isn’t a career, it’s more of part-time honor that you do for a couple years,” Kinzler said. Ives said her campaign includes eight paid staff members and is “blessed to have over 300 self-identified volunteers.” She is involved in day-to-day decisions about data collection, fundraising, communications and strategy.)

They assigned their employees who were Democrat, minority, female, and/or young to audits of IRS a) who knew absolutely nothing about IRS, b) who had never taken a course in accounting, and/or c) did not want to be assigned to audits of IRS.

They wasted what I had learned passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, earning a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, and passing the Certified Internal Auditor Examination on my first attempt in 1981. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or a veteran.)

— How to Navigate Your Most Dangerous Decade – Liz Weston (DIERSEN QUESTION: What could Diersen have done to avoid being forced by his Democrat GAO superiors to take early retirement in 1997 when he was 49 years old? ANSWER: a) Diersen should NOT have become an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 when he was 40 years old that charged his superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, b) Diersen should NOT have complained about political affiliation, reverse discrimination, or age discrimination, c) Diersen should have been a yes-man, d) Diersen should NOT have avoided the draft, and e) Diersen should have always been a Democrat.) 
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Losing a job is almost always traumatic. In your 50s, job loss can be devastating — and devastatingly common. More than half the workers who entered their 50s with stable, full-time jobs were laid off or pushed out at least once by age 65, according to an analysis of employment data from 1990 to 2016 by the nonprofit newsroom ProPublica and the Urban Institute, a nonprofit think tank. Only 10% of those who lost a job ever found another that paid as much, and most never recovered financially. Such concerns may seem remote in a booming economy, when the official unemployment rate is 3.5% overall and just 2.4% for those 55 and over. But recessions are inevitable, and even in good times older workers can be more vulnerable to involuntary job loss because of age discrimination. These realities make it important to have a plan for navigating what could be your most dangerous decade.)

— How Your Leadership Team Might Be Setting A Terrible Example – Ron Carucci (DIERSEN: I should write a book about how members of organizations are encouraged/forced to emulate the leaders of those organizations. I would focus on the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and the Illinois Republican Party. I would focus on those leaders who glorify, praise, and pander to those members who glorify, praise, and pander to them. I would focus on those leaders who demonize, denigrate, condemn, and destroy those members who do not glorify, praise, and pander to them.)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/roncarucci/2020/01/13/how-your-leadership-team-might-be-setting-a-terrible-example/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the everyday intensity of leading an organization, teams at the top can lose sight of the signals they send, and whether or not the example they’re setting is one they’d actually want followed. The team at the top of an part of any organization (enterprise, function, region, business unit) has disproportionate levels of influence over those it leads. People further down in the organization look to their leaders for cues on what’s acceptable (and what isn’t) and the team’s behaviors – both good and bad – will be emulated. Having your actions play out publicly as if on a jumbotron, is a huge responsibility, but unfortunately too many teams don’t take this responsibility as seriously as they should. The consequences can be farther reaching than most leadership teams realize. . .If a video camera captured your leadership team in action for a full day, how would you feel about having that video used as training for the rest of the organization? Being on a leadership team should be viewed as a privilege. And along with that privilege comes a responsibility to behave in ways you would be proud to have the rest of the organization emulate.)

https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/basics/conformity
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Conformity is typically motivated by a person’s identification with a specific group. In theory, to be truly accepted as a member, an individual must adopt the norms and rules that govern the group’s behavior. . .That usually means copying the actions of others, looking to the group when deciding how to think or behave, or doing what is “expected” based on widely accepted (if often unspoken) social norms.)

ILLINOIS FAMILY INSTITUTE
— In Chicago, Schools Re-Write History With “1619” Lies – Alex Newman (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, to send your children to a public school is to make them “good little Democrats,” that is, to make them anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://illinoisfamily.org/education/in-chicago-schools-re-write-history-with-1619-lies/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In Chicago Public Schools, captive students are being indoctrinated to believe that one of the very first societies in the world to end slavery was actually a monster defined by the evils of slavery — almost as if this monstrous nation had invented it. This narrative is peddled despite the fact that the nation in question sacrificed hundreds of thousands of its finest men to eradicate slavery — not only ending it domestically, but eventually, worldwide, too. And this slanderous lie is peddled despite the fact that institution of slavery has been ubiquitous throughout human history — at least until America and the Christian West put an end to it. Indeed, in the African nation of Mauritania, slavery did not even become a crime until 2007, and the institution remains firmly entrenched there, as it does across broad swaths of Africa and the Middle East. But supposedly, it’s America that is evil. Welcome to upside world of America’s “progressives” — the post-modernist absurdity where good is evil, evil is good, up is down, and truth does not even really exist.)

I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout. I would focus on those who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican. I would focus on those who are the most disgusting scapegoaters.)

— Post Impeachment, a Key Republican Suburban Area Rallies Around Trump Voters in the populous, heavily Republican suburbs west of Milwaukee did not entirely embrace Donald Trump in 2016.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The third impeachment trial in American history ended on Wednesday not with a bang but with a whimper. But here in Waukesha County, a patchwork of suburbs, small cities and rural areas west of Milwaukee that holds more Republican votes than any other county in this crucial swing state, there was a nervous excitement. Yard signs have been flying off the shelves in the county Republican Party’s headquarters in a strip mall near a vegan food supply store. More than 150 people showed up for a State of the Union watch party on Tuesday night, applauding and cheering in a giant hall. And volunteers like Diane Schlosser, a 63-year-old homemaker, have been walking in off the street to sign up.)
