NEW YORK TIMES
— ‘Incomprehensible’ Numbers: How Republicans Are Losing New York Suburbs In one county, Democrats grew by more than 150,000, while the number of Republicans dropped by more than 30,000. – Vivian Wang (DIERSEN: If current trends hold, the many Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, and RINO leaders of the Republican Party will officially banish individuals, organizations, companies, and governments that are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owners, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/13/nyregion/peter-king-long-island-republicans.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democrats now outnumber Republicans on Long Island, a once unthinkable development in a traditional conservative stronghold where voters backed every Republican presidential candidate, bar two, from 1900 to 1988. . .The shift mirrors a nationwide trend of historically moderate or conservative suburban voters now slowly tipping left. Just last week, those voters helped flip the Virginia statehouse, ousted the last Republicans in a Philadelphia-area County Council and appear to have unseated the Republican governor of Kentucky. The pattern, if it holds, could prove decisive not only for the 2020 presidential election, but also for the makeup of each party’s base for decades.)
— A Black Paratrooper’s First Veterans Day, and His Last A long struggle to remove the stigma of a questionable Army discharge comes to a close. – Michael Wilson (DIERSEN: Constructively, my Democrat GAO superiors gave me a dishonorable discharge in 1997 when I was 49 years old when they forced me to take they early retirement “offer.”)
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/12/nyregion/veterans-death-military-benefits.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: He made his way to Brooklyn, still carrying the stigma of his discharge. He said he had tried to commit suicide three times. “I struggled with depression, alcohol abuse and the shame of my dishonorable discharge,” he wrote. He eventually pulled himself up and started over, graduating from Adelphi University and going on to earn a master’s degree. “I found stability,” he wrote, “and dedicated my life to helping others.”)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— GOP’s small-fry fundraising – SHIA KAPOS and ADRIENNE HURST
https://www.politico.com/newsletters/illinois-playbook/2019/11/12/gops-small-fry-fundraising-madigan-hammers-arroyo-deval-patrick-eyes-white-house-run-487650
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Since his exit from politics, the GOP has had to change direction. The party hopes its grassroots fundraising campaign, called Lincoln Legion, will raise funds the old-fashioned way. Hackler says 92 percent of all donations in 2019 have been of $100 or less. How it’s playing out: The party raised $36,405 during the most recent reporting period that ended Sept. 30, according to the State Board of Elections. That’s up from $19,000 in donations the previous three months. Republicans have $106,369 cash on hand — up from $88,412 at the end of June. The House Republican Organization has $417,006 cash on hand; the Republican State Senate Campaign Committee has $214,986 cash on hand; and House Minority Leader Jim Durkin has $1.1 million on hand. Those are small-fry numbers compared to the Democratic Party of Illinois, which has $819,289 cash on hand. Sure, there are more Dems in Illinois, but the differences are stark. Friends of Michael Madigan has $7.1 million, the Democratic Majority has $4 million, and the 13th Ward Organization, where Madigan holds sway, has $1.8 million. Pritzker isn’t the only reason Dem fundraising outpaces the GOP. There’s been an eroding of Republican support in the affluent suburbs. Call it the Trump effect, says Democratic political consultant Scott Kennedy. “The 2018 Democratic fundraising success has largely been attributed to a higher level of enthusiasm among Democratic voters but the number of check-writing affluent suburbanites who switched from Republican to Democrat in the Trump era likely also played a role,” he told Playbook. “If Illinois Republicans are going to rebound, they’ll need to reverse that trend.”)

How would that work in the Situation Room? – Peter Funt (DIERSEN: How old are you? I am 71. I should write a book about those in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois who promote age discrimination.

It is called pretext.)

— Work permit delays disrupt foreign workers’ career plans (DIERSEN: What disrupted you career plans? 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 $19,568 (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. In 1971 when I was 22 years old, Oldsmobile withdrew a job offer that I had accepted saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. That directly resulted in my accepting a job offer from IRS.)

DAILY HERALD
— It wasn’t democracy that forced dangerous pot option on communities – Barbara Shafer (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, if you are an activist, candidate, elected official, party leader, major donor, political consultant, religious leader, education leader, medical leader, etc. who claims to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican, you should be doing everything that you can to stop the sale of pot in your municipality and in the unincorporated areas of your county.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20191030/it-wasnt-democracy-that-forced-dangerous-pot-option-on-communities
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Sen. Heather Steans couldn’t be more wrong, answering the question (re: cannabis legalization HB1438) “Is democracy a bad thing?” by stating the bill’s co-authors “don’t think so.” It wasn’t democracy. It was representation gone awry with 104 Illinois legislators speaking on behalf of 12.8 million Illinoisans. With 60 out of 104 legislators having received a total of $630,000 in marijuana lobbyist money in 2017 and 45 voting yes, is it interesting? Yes. Comped? Maybe. Democracy? No. Negotiation and compromise were missing, too, with a 600-page amendment appearing in an unrelated shell bill two days before the General Assembly’s end of session. No public debate. No referendum. No transparency. No democracy. Question: Was HB1438 a bad thing? The real question is “Who ends up paying the price: you, your kids, businesses, communities, teachers, or law enforcement?” Other states teach us the answer: All of the above. The co-authors claim, “Our intent was not to impose cannabis dispensaries on every community.” Will it end up that way? Washington State began with mandated medical, offered opt-out recreational, but finally allocated retail licenses to communities.)

How rich were your parents when you were young? Neither of my outstanding parents attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. He worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights, almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, and did not buy a new car until he was 45 years old, and it was a bottom of the line 2-door Chevy.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Social Security Administration released its analysis of the bipartisan Social Security Fairness Act of 2019 (H.R. 141) at the end of September. The legislation would provide a break to older Americans (and their spouses) from the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) which reduces the size of the checks coming from Social Security when a person collects a pension from a job not covered by Social Security. The actuaries at the Social Security Administration estimate that this relief will cost the general taxpayer $33 billion over the next 10 years.)

— New marijuana store licenses: Residents of 681 Illinois census tracts can get a leg up on applications. Are you eligible? Here’s which areas qualify, and why. – Ally Marotti (DIERSEN: Pot pushers want all of Illinois to be designated a “Disproportionately Impacted Area (DIA).” I fear that the pot pushers in Springfield will vote to force the sale of pot in DIAs even if the municipality or county had voted to ban the sale there. Where pot is sold, it brings down everything and everyone around it. How close is a 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 (Census Tract 8426.04) 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. SEE: on https://censusreporter.org/profiles/14000US17043842604-census-tract-842604-dupage-il/ and https://www.chicagocityscape.com/maps/index.php?place=censustract-17043842604 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 western Wheaton 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.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Applications for licenses to operate 75 marijuana stores are now available, offering the first path into the industry for those who don’t already operate a cannabis business in Illinois. A map the state released identifying areas hit hardest by the war on drugs could play a vital role for some applicants. More than 2 million people live in the hard-hit areas identified on the map. A qualified resident of those areas who applies to grow and sell recreational marijuana will get an additional 50 points on the application, which has a maximum score of 250 points. . .To create the map, officials broke the state down by U.S. Census tracts. To qualify, an area had to have an average annual rate of at least 30 marijuana-related arrests per 10,000 residents or at least one marijuana-related parole per 10,000 residents. Roughly 10 years of arrest and parole data was analyzed, said Michael Negron, assistant director of the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. The data reflects the addresses of people with marijuana arrests or paroles, not where the incidents occurred. Additionally, an area either must have a poverty rate above 20%, more than 20% of households in the area must receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, also known as food stamps, or the area’s average unemployment rate over the past two years must have been at least 20% higher than the national average. “The data is intended to be objective while still keeping in mind where we think the impact of the war on drugs is,” Negron said. “That means the data really sets the map.” Here’s a look at the poverty and SNAP participation rates of some census tracts identified on the map: . . . Wheaton — Poverty rate of 9%, SNAP participation 8.2%, average annual marijuana-related arrest rate of 9.1 per 10,000 residents. This tract qualified as underserved based on its unemployment rate of 5.7%, which was more than 20% higher than the national average in 2017 and 2018. It is west of downtown Wheaton and includes a western chunk of Milton Township.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Individuals will get an edge by qualifying as social equity applicants if they’ve lived for five of the past 10 years in an area that’s been disproportionately impacted by past drug policies or have been arrested for or convicted of a minor pot offense. Additionally, employers will qualify if the majority of their workforce meets those criteria. Some social equity applicants can also qualify for waivers from the state to cover half of their application fees. To qualify for a loan from Good Tree, applicants must fill out a form online to confirm they meet the qualifications before Nov. 1.)

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.

But then, even more wastefully, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)

https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/341090
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Having some minimum requirements combined with previous hiring data is a great place to start. However, employers should go beyond that, and focus on hiring the right culture fit. . .cultural fit is essential. An organizational culture is a system of shared assumptions, values, and beliefs that govern how people behave in a company. These shared values have a strong influence on the people in the organization, and dictate how they act and perform. Unfortunately, many hires struggle due to culture misfit, where they do not fit in with the team, they are not aligned with the values and goals pre-established, or their personality and workstyle is not compatible with what the company offers. A great way for employers to start seriously considering culture fit when hiring is to, firstly, define their organization’s culture, and make sure that it is visible and communicated regularly. Some employers do this by developing a strong online employer brand that can be viewed by potential job applicants. By announcing their organizational culture to potential applicants, it is more likely that employers will receive candidates who truly share their core values and principles and are able to smoothly assimilate.)

Yes-men help the federal government get rid of its employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who did not make 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.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/sns-bc-us–trump-kelly-20191027-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Donald Trump ‘s former chief of staff, John Kelly , says he advised the president not to fill the job with someone who wouldn’t be honest with him and provide a check on his impulses because he would end up being impeached. “That was almost 11 months ago, and I have an awful lot of, to say the least, second thoughts about leaving,” Kelly told the Washington Examiner. “It pains me to see what’s going on because I believe if I was still there or someone like me was there, he would not be kind of, all over the place.” “I said, whatever you do — and we were still in the process of trying to find someone to take my place — I said whatever you do, don’t hire a ‘yes man,’ someone who won’t tell you the truth — don’t do that. Because if you do, I believe you will be impeached,” Kelly recalled in an interview at the Sea Island Summit, a political conference hosted by the Examiner. Kelly said he does not believe the president would be in his current predicament if he had stayed as chief of staff. White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement of her own Saturday: “I worked with John Kelly, and he was totally unequipped to handle the genius of our great President.” Trump pushed back on Kelly’s comments in a statement: “John Kelly never said that, he never said anything like that. If he would have said that, I would have thrown him out of the office. He just wants to come back into the action like everybody else does.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In August 2019, the Economic Policy Institute reported that, in 2018, the average pay of CEOs at America’s 350 top firms hit $17.2 million―an increase, when adjusted for inflation, of 1,007.5 percent since 1978. By contrast, the typical worker’s wage, adjusted for inflation, grew by only 11.9 percent over this 40-year period. In 1965, the ratio of CEO-to-worker’s pay stood at 20-to-1; by 2018 (when CEOs received another hefty pay raise and workers received a 0.2 percent pay cut), it had reached 278-to-1. An AFL-CIO study, released in June 2019, had similar findings. Examining compensation at Standard & Poors 500 companies, the labor federation reported that average CEO pay in 2018 had increased by $5.2 million over the preceding 10 years. This resulted in an average CEO-to-worker pay ratio of 287-to-1. These figures, of course, are only averages, and at numerous major corporations, the economic gap between boss and worker is much greater. According to the AFL-CIO, the CEO-to-worker pay ratio at Walmart (America’s largest private employer) is 1,076 to 1, at Walt Disney Company 1,424-to-1, at McDonald’s 2,124-to-1, and at Gap 3,566-to-1. At 49 S&P 500 firms, noted an Institute for Policy Studies report, half the work force―that is, 3.7 million employees―received wages below the official U.S. poverty line for a family of four.)

— What Can We Learn from the Germans About Confronting Our History? – Lizzie Widdicombe (DIERSEN: What if I had lied and successfully claimed Swedish ancestry? During the 1840s and 1850s, all my ancestors immigrated to northeast Illinois from what is now Germany. Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used that against me. In my defense, I stress that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans during WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII, and that my father would have fought the Germans during WWII if he had not been 4-F. Further, according to http://dna.ancestry.com, my ancestry is 33% Europe West, 28% Scandinavia, 24% Great Britain, 11% Ireland, 2% Europe East, 1% Finland/Northwest Russia, and 1% Italy/Greece.

— Taxing retirement income
https://abc7chicago.com/politics/weekend-watch-taxing-retirement-income/5628662/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois may be one of the best places to retire because of its tax policies for older citizens, but this could mean negative consequences for the younger generations. According to the BGA, of 41 states that have an income tax, only three – Illinois, Pennsylvania and Mississippi – do not tax retirement income. Many states exempt some retirement income, such as pension or Social Security benefits, the BGA reported.)
