That is no way to win,” he said.)

— Apple defeats lawsuit claiming it overpaid CEO Tim Cook, others – Jonathan Stempel (COMMENT: According to my Democrat IRS superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates, I was promoted much too fast. 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.)

My critics/opponents attribute my successes in life to my benefitting tremendously from discrimination against those who are minority, female, younger, veteran, unmarried, parents, LGBTQ, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. In my defense, I stress that neither of my parents attended college. My father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. He worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant on the east side of Chicago Heights. He almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. He died suddenly when he was 47 and I was 21. My mother never attended high school and never worked outside of the home until after my father died. Because of the aforesaid, I took college preparatory courses in high school. I got and ACT score of 24. I graduated in the upper 20% of my 1966 Crete-Monee High School class. I worked my way through college. I earned a bachelor’s degree and three master’s degrees. I earned six professional certifications. I earned a professional license. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on those whose parents are/were rich. Who bought them cars. Who paid for their college expenses. Who got them good jobs.)

— A quarter of United Methodist churches in U.S. have left during split (COMMENT: In 1961, when I was 13 years old and in 8th grade at Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete ( https://www.trinitycrete.org/ and https://ilhs.org/ ), the church’s split had a tremendous impact on me. The pastor succeeded in dumping the Missouri Synod for the Wisconsin Synod. My father was one of the Church Elders who led an unsuccessful fight to stay with the Missouri Synod. To stay with the Missouri Synod, my parents transferred to Hope Lutheran in Park Forest. Since 1847, all my ancestors had always been Missouri Synod Lutheran. On my father’s side, they all had all graduated from Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete. But in 1962, I graduated from a newly formed extremely small 8th grade at Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest. The church split created many divisions between those who stayed with the Missouri Synod and those who joined the Wisconsin Synod. The split ended big annual family reunions in Crete and Grant Park that had been organized by both my father’s and mother’s parents.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— What should the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) promote more strongly in its next platform and what should the IRP oppose more strongly in that platform? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

I served on the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee in 2008. Sadly, my requests to be appointed to serve on those committees again in 2012, 2016, and 2020 were not granted. Of course, I have asked to be appointed to serve on the 2024 IRP State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee.

Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party exists to defend and advance conservative principles.

In my opinion, the next IRP platform should more strongly promote the following:
— Personal responsibility,
— Traditional marriage and family,
— Right to life,
— Enforcement of immigration laws,
— Discouragement of vices,
— Second Amendment rights, and
— Equal opportunity, that is, no race or gender based preference giving.

Republican elected officials should promote the aforesaid.

In my opinion, the next IRP platform should more strongly oppose the promotion of the following:
— Dependency on government and charity,
— LGBTQ,
— Abortion,
— Mass/illegal immigration,
— Booze, gambling, pot, and other vices,
— Diminishment of Second Amendment rights, and
— DEI, that is, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.

Republican elected officials should oppose promotion of the aforesaid.

TEXAS TRIBUNE
— JUNE 18, 2022 FLASHBACK: Texas Republican Convention calls Biden win illegitimate – SEWELL CHAN AND ERIC NEUGEBOREN
https://www.texastribune.org/2022/06/18/republican-party-texas-convention-cornyn/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Meeting at their first in-person convention since 2018, Texas Republicans on Saturday acted on a raft of resolutions and proposed platform changes to move their party even further to the right. They approved measures declaring that President Joe Biden “was not legitimately elected” and rebuking Sen. John Cornyn for taking part in bipartisan gun talks. They also voted on a platform that declares homosexuality “an abnormal lifestyle choice” and calls for Texas schoolchildren “to learn about the humanity of the preborn child.” The actions capped a convention that highlighted how adamantly opposed the party’s most active and vocal members are to compromising with Democrats or moderating on social positions, even as the state has grown more diverse and Republicans’ margins in statewide elections have shrunk slightly in recent years. Votes on the platform were collected at the end of the party’s three-day convention in which party activists moved to add multiple items to the official Texas GOP platform. As the convention closed, two separate sets of ballots — one allowing delegates to choose eight of 15 legislative priorities and another allowing delegates to vote on the 275 platform planks — were gathered. Those will now need to be tallied and certified in Austin, but it is rare for a plank to be rejected, according to party spokesperson James Wesolek.)

They discouraged me from blaming others for my problems. That motivated me to take college preparatory courses in high school, get an ACT score of 24, graduate in the upper 20% of my class, earn a bachelor’s degree and three master’s degrees, earn six professional certifications, earn a professional license, etc.)

THE HILL
— CPAC is denying press passes to ‘left-wing’ journalists – DOMINICK MASTRANGELO (COMMENT: I have always fully disclosed that I am conservative. I attended many CPACs, although not recently, and I reported on them as a journalist for GOPUSA. According to my Democrat and RINO critics/opponents, you are not a “real” journalist unless you claim to be nonpartisan. RINOs are anti-conservative. I should write a book about high-profile RINO event organizers in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, and in Wheaton who have barred me from attending their events and/or who have had me thrown out of their events since 2000.)

— Democrats ask “CPAC or TPAC?” and say “This year’s conservative gathering is all about Trump.” (COMMENT: What has discouraged you from attending CPACs? For me, it is CPAC’s declining emphasis on the individual responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform.)

HECHINGER REPORT
— Did your college application essay mention race? Talk to us about it. (COMMENT: In my 1971 Loyola and 1976 DePaul applications, I stressed that I was an IRS Revenue Officer and that my employee manual encouraged me to take graduate business and accounting courses and that I wanted to take those courses to maintain and improve my job skills as an IRS employee. But in 1978, to get rid of me, my IRS superiors disallowed the courses that I had taken ignoring/rejecting what I had stated in my applications and falsely arguing that I the courses a) did not relate to my job duties, b) did not maintain or improve my job skills, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and d) qualified me for a “new trade or business.” They would not have done that nor would they have disallowed my travel vouchers in 1974 and gotten rid of the IRS manager in 1975 who had promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974 if I had not complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. I would not have complained about the aforesaid discrimination if my Democrat IRS superiors had not taken the aforesaid adverse actions against me. They would not have taken the aforesaid adverse actions against me if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)

PSYCHOLOGY TODAY
— Anything seems obvious, after the fact. – Angela Duckworth Ph.D. (COMMENT: What have you spent lots of your time, effort, and/or money on? In retrospect and with benefit of hindsight, what did you learn? Would you have done those things if you knew then what you know now? If so, what would you have done differently? I should write a book about that. I would focus on my serving as a) the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019, b) the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, c) the Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster 2008-2010 and 2000-2004, and d) an Illinois Center Right Coalition officer 2003-2007. I would focus on those who took the most/biggest adverse actions against me because I did the aforesaid. I would focus on those who have blamed me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters the most for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. I would focus on those who destroy those like me a) who they cannot manipulate or dominate, b) who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) who refuse to pander to them, d) who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, e) who refuse to cover up their wrong doing, and/or f) who refuse to give them money.)

— President Biden announces more student loan debt being forgiven. More than 100,000 student loan borrowers are getting some good news. Another $1 billion of student loan debt has been forgiven. (COMMENT: Not that I could have gotten a student loan, but because I worked my way through college, I was able to a) graduate debt-free from NIU with a bachelor’s degree in management in 1970 and owning a 1969 Dodge Charger SE, b) buy a new Corvette after my Charger was stolen 14 months after I graduated, c) buy a new town home in University Park 25 months after I graduated, d) buy a studio condo in downtown Chicago 48 months I graduated, e) buy a one bedroom condo there 72 months after I graduated, and f) buy a home in Wheaton with my wife 92 months after I graduated. In addition, I was able to pay for graduate evening courses in business at Loyola 1972-1976 and in accounting at DePaul 1976-1980. In today’s dollars, my IRS salary increased from $54,728/year in 1971 to $110,020/year in 1979. IRS promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974.)

In the late-1980s, my wife and I gave up trying to have children without trying IVF. Our doctors told us that because we both had serious fertility problems, success would have been very unlikely. We did not adopt or become foster parents. My Democrat GAO superiors used that against me viciously. They falsely hinted/implied/argued/shouted not only that I lied about trying to have children, but that we were disgusting selfish DINKs (dual income, no kids) who never wanted to have children. They used that slander to punish me severely in 1989. They did the aforesaid because I had become an active member in a class action lawsuit in late 1988 that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR REPUBLICAN PRECINCT COMMITTEEMAN: What have you done and what will you do to encourage the registered Republican voters in our precinct to cast Republican ballots in the March 19, 2024 Republican primary? Which of your fellow township and county elected Republican Precinct Committeemen are running to serve as officers of our township and county Republican party organizations? Who is running to serve as the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) National Committeeman and Committeewoman? When and where is the next IRP State Central Committee meeting? Which IRP State Convention Committees have you asked to be appointed to?

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— What are the demographics of your county? How have those demographics changed? As more and more and more voters who have demographics that vote for Democrats move into DuPage County, Democrat candidates get more and more and more votes in DuPage County. Those who have the following demographics vote for Democrats: liberal, minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, unmarried, poor, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or have ancestors who have not been in America for a long time. How have the leaders of your Republican county and township party organizations responded to demographic changes? I should write a book about how the leaders of the DuPage County Republican Central Committee and the Milton Township Republican Organization have responded to demographic changes since 2000. – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com
(According to Wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DuPage_County,_Illinois#Demographics ), in DuPage County, 63.4% are White, 12.8% are Asian, 4.7% are Black, 0.1% are Native American, 3.2% are two or more races, 0.4% are some other race, and 15.5% are Hispanic of any race. DuPage County has become more diverse. The population of foreign-born residents increased from about 71,300 in 1990 to 171,000 by 2009 estimates. There were 325,601 households, out of which 37.00% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 60.90% were married couples living together, 7.90% had a female householder with no husband present and 28.00% were non-families. 22.90% of all households were made up of individuals, and 6.80% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.73 and the average family size was 3.27. In the county, the population was spread out, with 26.70% under the age of 18, 8.20% from 18 to 24, 32.40% from 25 to 44, 22.80% from 45 to 64 and 9.80% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 35 years. For every 100 females, there were 97.20 males. For every 100 females, age 18 and over, there were 94.20 males. The median income for a household in the county was $98,441 and the median income for a family was $113,086. Males had a median income of $60,909 versus $41,346 for females. The mean or average income for a family in DuPage County is $121,009, according to the 2005 census. The per capita income for the county was $38,458. About 2.40% of families and 3.60% of the population were below the poverty line, including 3.90% of those under age 18 and 4.30% of those age 65 or over. Religion The First Church of Lombard is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

— Illinois GOP Slams Gov. Pritzker Over Migrant Funding – Nick Koutsobinas
https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/illinois-gop-jb-pritzker/2024/02/21/id/1154496/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois Democrat Gov. J.B. Pritzker, during his State of the State address on Wednesday, called for a budget proposal of $182 million to be directed toward the healthcare costs of illegal migrants in his state, the Center Square reported. Framing the issue as one of a broken immigration system as opposed to an open-border policy constructed by the Biden administration, the governor said: “I will not join the chorus of people in this country or in this chamber who eagerly look to slam shut an immigration door that was once open to our ancestors.” Pritzker then blamed Republicans in the United States Senate for not agreeing to what was nominally dubbed a border bill that tied more funding to Ukraine than the border and was negotiated in secret apart from Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla. “Why did every single Republican run away from something that they claimed they desperately wanted,” Pritzker asked a crowd of Illinois politicians. “Because Donald Trump told them to, and they’re afraid of him.” The Illinois governor also blamed Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for transporting migrants to Chicago and other sanctuary cities. But local conservative politicians say Pritzker is to blame for his state’s migrant crisis. “You can’t literally invite people to come here with this insane sanctuary state policy and then complain that we don’t have the resources when they arrive,” state Rep. Blaine Wilhour, R-Beecher City, said after the governor’s address. Pritzker also outlined that part of the proposed funding would go to transitioning illegal migrants from temporary shelters to permanent housing. State Rep. Ryan Spain, R-Peoria, however, said there are better uses for the state’s budget. He said that “$2.8 billion dollars of state of Illinois spending” is going to “undocumented immigrant healthcare or migrant assistance. It is a gigantic sum of money that is crowding out other spending priorities that I think are worthwhile.” Newsmax could not verify the figure but has contacted Spain for comment. Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Tony McCombie, R-Savanna, has called for a statewide moratorium on accepting migrants, citing high expenses.)
— CPAC Enforces New Rule Barring Left-Wing Journalists – Jim Thomas (COMMENT: I have always fully disclosed that I am conservative. I attended many CPACs, although not recently, and reported on them as a journalist for GOPUSA. According to my Democrat and RINO critics/opponents, you are not a “real” journalist unless you claim to be nonpartisan. RINOs are anti-conservative. I should write a book about high-profile RINO event organizers in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, and in Wheaton who have barred me from attending their events and/or have had me thrown out of their events since 2000.)
https://www.newsmax.com/amp/politics/cpac-rule-gop/2024/02/21/id/1154466/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), chaired by Matt Schlapp of the American Conservative Union, has implemented a significant policy change, disallowing credentials for left-wing journalists, reported Mediaite. Schlapp stated, “CPAC has a new rule. If you’re a propagandist, you can buy a ticket, like everyone else, but you’re not in the media, and we’re not going to credential you by saying you’re in the media.” He criticized certain media outlets for their alleged anti-Trump and anti-conservative stance, asserting that such bias undermines the credibility of journalism. Schlapp announced this decision as the conference commenced near Washington, D.C., igniting reactions and discussions about media access and bias. In a conversation with Schlapp, Steve Bannon articulated concerns about what he perceives as biased reporting, accusing some journalists of engaging in “information warfare.” In response, Schlapp highlighted a perceived trend of targeting conservatives with unfavorable coverage, emphasizing a need for increased discernment in media accreditation. Acknowledging the existence of left-wing journalists who provide balanced coverage, Schlapp maintained that CPAC’s decision aims to address what he sees as pervasive bias within the media landscape. He cited instances where journalists selectively target conservatives, contributing to what he described as a hostile environment for those with differing viewpoints. Responding to questions regarding CPAC’s evolving identity and criticism of its increasingly MAGA-centric focus, Schlapp defended the conference’s trajectory. He dismissed concerns over relevance and emphasized a commitment to principles aligned with the conservative movement. Additionally, Schlapp shared an exchange between his wife and a Huffington Post reporter who was denied credentials, expressing satisfaction with what he described as a reaction from “leftist propagandists” who expected preferential treatment as a “real” journalist. “But as we know what’s happened to these corporate media entities is they’re 100%. If you listen to MSNBC, it’s 100% anti-Trump, anti-American, anti-conservative every moment of every day. They never have any kind of honest treatment of anything,” Schlapp said.)

— A closer look at which states best represent America — and which fall short. Survey says Utah is furthest from the overall representation of the U.S., while Illinois is closest. – Emma Pitts (COMENT: Those who have the following demographics vote for Democrats: liberal, minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, unmarried, poor, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or have ancestors who have not been in America for a long time. Because voters who have the aforesaid demographics vote for Democrats and because Illinois voters overwhelmingly vote for Democrats, Illinois voters must overwhelmingly have the aforesaid demographics. Those who vote for Democrats overwhelmingly promote dependency on government and charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, diminishment of Second Amendment rights, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, and age discrimination and that is exactly what Democrat Illinois elected official promote. If you backed out Chicago voters, and especially if you backed out Collar County voters too, Illinois would be to the right of Utah. In the 2022 Illinois gubernatorial election, Republican Bailey won in all but 17 of Illinois’ 102 counties.)
https://www.deseret.com/2024/2/21/24079255/united-states-represent-electoral-presidential-candidates-caucuses
(FROM THE ARTICLE: No single state can perfectly represent the United States in all aspects due to the country’s vast diversity, but Illinois had a “94% similarity when all demographics are averaged.” “It’s most similar in terms of gender, age, the share of residents born in the U.S. and the unemployment rate, with more than 99% similarity for each of those metrics,” according to the survey. Regarding representation, Utah ranked last place in the following categories, making it an atypical representation of the country: Religious composition of adults. Wealth gap. Age characteristics. However, every state contributes uniquely to the nation’s fabric, and the concept of being the “worst” or “best” representative is largely subjective and dependent on the measures used for comparison.)

The Democrats who ran IRS in 1971 hired me as a GS-7 (currently $54,728/year) Revenue Officer because they could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, or someone whose ancestors had not been in America for a long time who would take the job.

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.)

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.

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.”)

The aforesaid enabled me to graduate debt-free from NIU in 1970 owning that Charger. My father died suddenly in 1969. My mother had never attended high school or worked outside of the home. My 1970 financial hardship draft deferment application was approved in 1971 to help support her and my brother.)

https://www.chicagotribune.com/2024/02/10/on-her-way-out-rnc-chair-ronna-mcdaniel-urges-crowd-in-rosemont-to-vote-early/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel used an Illinois GOP fundraiser Friday night to deliver a valedictory address of sorts as she prepares for her ouster from the party post later this month under pressure from former President Donald Trump. Appearing at an event aimed at encouraging Republicans to vote early and by mail, a “Bank Your Vote” program she initiated despite criticism from Trump and other GOP leaders that the practice Democrats have used successfully has been littered with fraud, McDaniel made no mention of the former president or her imminent departure as RNC chair. She exhorted a crowd of more than 700 people in a ballroom at the Westin O’Hare hotel in Rosemont to pledge to vote early, avoid an Election Day vote deficit and save the party from the expense of pushing them to vote in the campaign’s final days. “Why bank your vote? We in the party must start utilizing mail-in and early voting,” she said. “Please raise your hand and you will pledge to vote early this election. Everybody, we got to do it.”)

CNBC
— This is what happens if you don’t pay your taxes on time. Late fees and interest are only the beginning. – Megan DeMatteo and Kelsey Neubauer (COMMENT: I worked for IRS’s Collection Division for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $97,079-$110,020/year and I worked for GAO on audits of IRS’s Criminal Investigation Division for 3 years at the GS-13 Step 1-3 levels, currently $115,439-$123,136/year.)
https://www.cnbc.com/select/what-happens-when-you-dont-pay-taxes-on-time/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Levies and liens Within a few months, you should expect to receive letters from the IRS indicating how much you owe. These may be followed by collection notices or phone calls. Eventually, you may receive a Notice of Intent to Levy, a letter indicating the IRS is prepared to seize your assets to cover the amount due. It can claim your home, car, bank accounts or even a portion of your paycheck. After receiving the Notice of Intent, you have 30 days to pay your balance, appeal the levy or reach an agreement with the IRS before further action is taken. If you don’t pay within 10 days of receiving the notice, the failure-to-pay penalty increases to 1% per month. If you owe the IRS $10,000 or more, a lien may be placed on your home. According to the IRS website, “a lien is a legal claim against your property to secure payment of your tax debt, while a levy actually takes the property to satisfy the tax debt.” The IRS will file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien “to alert creditors that the government has a legal right to your property.” This may limit your ability to get credit, including refinancing your mortgage. If you sell your home, the IRS may claim a portion or all of the proceeds. Even declaring bankruptcy may not remove a tax lien. Other consequences for not paying taxes If you still have not settled your account, the State Department may eventually refuse to issue or renew your passport. If you have a “seriously delinquent tax debt” (considered $62,000 or more) your passport may even be revoked. The IRS has 10 years to collect unpaid taxes. While tax evasion and tax fraud are jailable offenses, you won’t go to prison for not having enough money to pay your tax bill. That’s why filing a return, even if you don’t include full payment, is important. How to pay your taxes over time If you’re concerned your tax bill may be steep, you can set up an installment plan with the IRS. These payment plans include interest and a non-payment penalty of up to 25% of the balance due. You can also apply for an offer in compromise (OIC), which is a request for the IRS to settle your tax bill for less than the amount that you owe. They’re not commonly approved — only about a third of OICs were accepted in 2022 — but the IRS will consider your income, expenses and other factors when reviewing your request.)

— ALL OF THE FRONT COVER: Americans Being Priced Out of Their Love Affair With Cars – GIULIA CARBONARO (COMMENT: Back in the good old days, a) I bought (paid for in full) a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in May of 1966 when I was 17 years old with the money that I had earned the previous 18 months working part-time for the minimum wage washing dishes and I got for selling my 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air, b) I bought (paid for in full) a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 in December of 1967 with the money that I had earned the previous 13 months working part-time delivering mail and I got for my selling my Pontiac, and c) I bought (paid for in full) a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE in December of 1968 with the money that I had earned the previous 12 months working part-time delivering mail and I got for selling my Oldsmobile. Granted, my parents provided with room and board all that time.)
https://www.newsweek.com/2024/02/16/americans-being-priced-out-their-love-affair-cars-1866374.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For decades, car ownership has been a trademark of the American lifestyle, with vehicles becoming symbols of freedom, independence and even rebellion, as well as a necessity. . .Just 10 percent of new car listings are currently priced below $30,000, according to CoPilot. Things are not much better in the used car market, where only 28 percent of listings are currently priced below $20,000. According to an October report by Market Watch, Americans needed an annual income of at least $100,000 to afford a car, at least if they’re following standard budgeting advice, which says you shouldn’t spend more than 10 percent of your monthly income on car-related expenses. That means that more than 60 percent of American households cannot afford to buy a new car, based on Census data. For individuals, the numbers are even worse, with 82 percent of people below the $100,000 line.)

https://www.aol.com/news/republican-party-texas-censures-speaker-232924174.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Republican Party of Texas has announced they’ve officially censured Representative Dade Phelan on Saturday, according to a release. Officials said they will be “imposing the full set of penalties allowed by the rules, for lack of fidelity to Republican principles and priorities.” According to a release, rule 44 of the Republican Party of Texas allows the party to censure elected officials who violate Republican Party of Texas principles and priorities three times or more in a given biennium. The censure of Phelan details five such instances on issues such as the impeachment of Ken Paxton, Democrat Committee Chairs, border security, and educational freedom. The release stated that the original censure resolution was passed by the Jasper County Republican Party with at least two-thirds support and required a three-fifths vote to pass the 64-member State Republican Executive Committee. The final vote was 55 in favor, four opposed, and four abstentions. . .Phelan is now the four elected official in the history of the Republican Party of Texas to be censured utilizing the Rule 44 censure option.)

But my IRS supervisor did decry the president that the transfer established. I had to suffer a $22,996/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer.

— Every FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) Delay Puts College Further Out of Reach – Justin Draeger and Ted Mitchell (COMMENT: I should write a book about the many negatives of working your way through college. My college GPA was lower because I skipped classes Mondays and Fridays at UIC 1966-1968 and at NIU in 1969 so that could work more hours for the Park Forest Post Office. But I would focus in my book how if you had to work your way through college, your critics/opponents use that to stress that you did not get scholarships because your high school grades and your ACT/SAT score were not high enough. My high school grades and my ACT score were lower because washed dishes during my junior and senior years instead of studying.)

My critics/opponents not only do not fight the aforesaid, they promote the aforesaid. I should write a book about my critics/opponents.)

— Why Aren’t There More Black Accountants? – Bernard Grant (COMMENT: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, so that my Democrat GAO superiors could give my job and my preferred corner office to my Black CPA subordinate, they forced me to take their early retirement “offer,” and that is exactly what they did. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes not only have no problem with that, they applaud that. They promote up-or-out, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)
