— Biden is slightly healthier, study says, but both presidential candidates may be ‘super-agers’ – JAMES RAINEY (DIERSEN: What do you say to those who promote age discrimination? All my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes promote age discrimination a) to get rid of those who are older than they are and/or b) to curry favor with younger people. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton’s West District, in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County’s 4th District, in DuPage County, and in Illinois. I would focus on present and past leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton, DuPage County, Illinois, and Wheaton Chamber of Commerce.)
https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2020-09-25/biden-trump-super-agers-longevity-study
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The presidential candidates and their supporters will likely keep belittling the other guy as a doddering old fool, but a group of geriatric experts say in a new paper that both President Trump and challenger Joe Biden appear to have the physical and cognitive tools to make it through four years in the White House. In fact, the two candidates’ relative good health and other advantages — parental longevity, access to top-notch healthcare and abstinence from smoking and drinking — suggest both men are likely to become long-living “super-agers,” who thrive well into their 80s, or beyond, according to a draft report written by three medical doctors and four researchers with expertise in public health, survival analysis and statistics. . .While the candidates are unusually healthy for their age, Biden is projected to live longer because of his routine fitness regimen, compared with Trump’s relatively sedentary lifestyle and obesity, according to the paper. which will be published in October in the Journal on Active Aging. The journal bills itself as “an indispensable tool for professionals who are dedicated to older adults living as fully as possible regardless of age.”)

— These 5 Habits Will Help You Stay Focused All Day. – MINDA ZETLIN (DIERSEN: What do you do and what motivates you to stay focused on doing it? I put together and send out a GOPUSA ILLINOIS email every morning and every evening. The continuing failure/refusal of Republican organizations in Illinois to keep Illinois Republicans up-to-date with government and political news and commentary continues to motivate me to put together and send out a GOPUSA ILLINOIS email every morning and every evening. The continuing massive efforts by my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes a) to discourage me from putting the emails together and sending them out and b) to stop everyone from reading the emails also motivates me.)

Tax avoidance is legal. What did you do to avoid paying higher federal taxes? Instead of renting, I bought the following and deducted mortgage interest and real estate taxes: a) a new town home in University Park in 1972, b) a studio condo in the Outer Drive East (ODE) building in downtown Chicago in 1974, and c) a one bedroom condo in the ODE building in 1976. My wife and I bought a home in Wheaton in 1978 and we had one built in Wheaton in 1984. Instead of spending my time and money on other things, I paid for and deducted tuition, fees, and books a) to earn a job-related MBA from Loyola on 1976, b) to pass the job-related CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, c) to earn a job-related master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, d) to pass the job-related Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and e) to earn a job-related master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997.)

NATIONAL LAW REVIEW
— Achieving Diversity and Inclusion within the Securities and Financial Management Industry and its Legal Partners (DIERSEN: Meeting Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion quotas, goals, and targets is a “zero sum game.” For every employee who is hired or promoted who is Democrat, minority, female, or younger, an employee who is Republican, White, male, or older is not hired or promoted. All my coworkers who IRS and GAO promoted over me were Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger.)
https://www.natlawreview.com/article/achieving-diversity-and-inclusion-within-securities-and-financial-management
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Accountability and measurement are necessary to achieve results. Marcham encouraged us to avoid barriers that we often throw up, and not to see diversity and inclusion results as a “zero sum game.” Instead tangible D&I results are a chance to grow both inclusively and financially – the well-known win‑win. Lewis wryly observed the financial services industry measures everything so there is no excuse not to measure our results on D&I.)

DAILY SIGNAL
— The Left’s Moral Compass Isn’t Broken – Dennis Prager
https://www.dailysignal.com/2020/09/17/the-lefts-moral-compass-isnt-broken/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: All of my life, I have said that the left’s moral compass is broken. And all of my life, I was wrong. Why I was wrong explains both the left and the moral crisis we are in better than almost any other explanation. I was wrong because in order to have a broken moral compass, you need to have a moral compass to begin with. But the left doesn’t have one. This is not meant as an attack. It is a description of reality. The left regularly acknowledges that it doesn’t think in terms of good and evil. Most of us are so used to thinking in those terms—what we call “Judeo-Christian”—that it is very difficult for us to divide the world in any other way.)

USA TODAY
— Amy Coney Barrett: Talented judge, popular professor brings solid conservative credentials – Richard Wolf and Maureen Groppe (DIERSEN: How would Barrett have ruled in Diersen v. GAO? In Diersen v. GAO, the 7th Circuit ruled that employers can discriminate against their employees because they are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/09/26/who-amy-coney-barrett-talented-judge-conservative-credentials/3494471001/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: During her three years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, which includes Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin, Barrett has ruled in cases involving abortion, sexual assault, guns, race and immigration. Among them: . . Race: Barrett helped to block the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s effort to stop an employer from transferring Chicago-area employees based on their race or ethnicity. The agency had accused AutoZone of making the transfers to reflect area demographics. Three dissenting judges said the policy “deprived people … of employment opportunities at their preferred geographic location.” Age discrimination: Barrett ruled that the Age Discrimination in Employment Act does not apply when policies impact plaintiffs unintentionally. The ruling went against a 58-year-old job applicant who lost out to someone half his age when the company sought to hire a person with less than seven years’ experience.)

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.

— Cost Of Racism: U.S. Economy Lost $16 Trillion Because Of Discrimination, Bank Says – ADEDAYO AKALA (DIERSEN: I should write a book about the cost of Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, and Inclusion. To meet AA, Diversity, and Inclusion quotas, goals, and targets, my Democrat superiors in the federal government wasted many millions of tax dollars. My Democrat 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 $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. 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 aforesaid Democrat superiors would stress that the aforesaid adverse actions that they took against me directly benefited their employees who were poor, and especially their poor employees who were Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or veteran.)

— DuPage County: Voting In A Pandemic: Early Voting Begins In Most Of Illinois Thursday – Dana Kozlov
https://chicago.cbslocal.com/2020/09/23/voting-pandemic-early-voting-begins-illinois-thursday/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: This year’s presidential election is poised to be historic for many reasons, and Wednesday in counties all around Chicago, final preparations were underway for the start of early voting Thursday. DuPage County is working to make voters and election judges feel safe. The DuPage County Fairgrounds will be the county’s first and only polling place for early in-person voting. The county clerk moved early voting there for many reason, most significantly because of the size of the room and ability to keep doors wide open if needed. Less than 24 hours before DuPage County voters enter the doors election judges sat through training. This year in a pandemic that training contained a whole new set of rules and a whole new set of personal safety equipment. “Everything has been turned upside down and inside out,” said first term DuPage County Clerk Jean Kaczmarek. Kaczmarek said planning has been underway since the primary ended. She said $3.5 million in state and federal Cares Act money has been used to buy now needed items like shields, sanitizer, masks and new equipment to handle mail-in ballots. Kaczmarek also doubled election judges’ pay as an incentive. Early voting judges will now get $20 an hour. “We’re in pretty good shape with election judges. We’re always recruiting. It’s a move other county clerks have made, too, in hopes of avoiding a judge shortage. Melissa Nachman said it helped sway her, admitting she was concerned about her safety. “However, I felt that it was important. We need to have election judges just to make our elections work well, and I weighed the two things,” Nachman said. Safety is clearly a priority. Polling stations are six feet apart. Floor markers demand social distancing, and a mail-in drop box is near the door for those dropping of mail-in ballots. DuPage County has gotten 155,000 mail-in ballot applications. Statewide there have been almost 1.8 million. “That is an incredible number. The most we’ve ever had cast in vote by mail was just two years ago; 430,000 voted by mail,” said the Illinois State Board of Elections’ Matt Dietrich. Dietrich said at this rate half of the presidential votes could be cast before election day. He echoes what many election leaders say: the earlier the better. Early voting begins in all of Illinois except Cook County and the City of Chicago. That’s also when those requested mail-in ballots will begin to be sent out. Paper ballots begin Thursday, but touch screen voting begins Oct. 19 in DuPage County.)

https://www.npr.org/2020/09/22/915843471/trump-expands-ban-on-racial-sensitivity-training-to-federal-contractors
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Trump said on Twitter on Tuesday that he had expanded the ban on “efforts to indoctrinate government employees with divisive and harmful sex and race-based ideologies” to contractors doing business with the federal government and those receiving grant funds. “Americans should be taught to take PRIDE in our Great Country, and if you don’t there’s nothing in it for you!” he tweeted. Earlier this month, Trump announced efforts to promote “patriotic education” and railed against students learning about systemic racism. He signed an executive order that requires contracts to now include a provision that says contractors with the federal government will not have “workplace training that inculcates in its employees any form of race or sex stereotyping or any form of race or sex scapegoating” or face the cancellation of contracts. “Instructors and materials teaching that men and members of certain races, as well as our most venerable institutions, are inherently sexist and racist are appearing in workplace diversity trainings across the country, even in components of the Federal Government and among Federal contractors,” the order says. The trainings cited include references to white privilege and systemic racism.)

— NYT: Elites ‘Ghost’ Their Illegal Migrants in Coronavirus Crash – NEIL MUNRO
https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2020/09/21/nyt-elites-ghost-their-illegal-migrants-in-coronavirus-crash/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Wealthy Americans have quietly fired and discarded many of their illegal migrant house cleaners since the coronavirus economic crash, often without warning or compensation, says the New York Times: . . . The article, and the quoted pro-migration activists, only hinted at the hypocrisy of elites who applaud migration and diversity but discard their illegal migrant employees without warning or compensation. . . But the article also sidelined the damage done to Americans’ labor market by the creation of several underclass workforces within the U.S. labor market. For example, the article glossed over the reality that employers know they can hire low-wage illegals at minimal legal risk, so undermining the hard-won labor market rights of Americans. . . The passive-voice phrase “were largely replaced” hides the rarely-noted movement in the 1970s and 1980s by upper-income whites to hire illegal, grateful, and compliant Latinos instead of proud American citizens — mostly blacks — for domestic chores. “The reporter seems to be avoiding the question of why the American women, having won these new worker protections, just coincidentally happened to stop working in this field and be replaced by Hispanic women,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which favors reduced immigration and tight labor markets.)
