If I sought a government office, for example, Wheaton West District City Counsel, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would stress that I get a $54,168/year Civil Service Retirement System pension and a $18,000+/year federal health, dental, and vision insurance subsidy. They would hint/imply/argue/shout that the aforesaid is grossly excessive and that the federal government grossly overpaid me. Further, they would stress that I am a Trump supporter, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, heterosexual, old (born in 1948), non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, Crete resident 1948-1972, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. Further, they would stress that I oppose the promotion of dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation for opposing the aforesaid. Further, they would stress that I have been a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999 and the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000. My critics/opponents in Wheaton are extremely nasty and have lots of religious, government, political, and financial clout. I should write a book about the aforesaid who claim to religious, conservative, and/or Republican. Better yet, I should sue them.)

http://www.windycitymediagroup.com/lgbt/Census-2020-The-LGBTQ-community-counts/68257.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The LGBTQ+ community has always played a vital part in this nation’s history and success. We are not a minor population subset. We are a powerful constituency made even more impactful because we cross racial, ethnic, religious, income, gender and many other intersectional identities. An accurate Census count of our community is critical to ensuring programs that address our unique needs are fairly funded. It will also highlight the importance of our political voice which, in a democracy like ours, is critical. If we are not counted then we won’t count. It’s that simple. This year, for the first time in census history, same-sex couples will be able to declare their existence on the census form. While imperfect and incomplete, it represents an important step towards recognizing our community. We will continue to work on future Census, so that everyone in our community are counted and counted for who they are. But for now, we need to seize the moment and have our voices be heard.)

— White House, Warren Farrell mull fix to ‘boy crisis’ – Cheryl K. Chumley
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/mar/6/white-house-warren-farrell-mull-fix-boy-crisis/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Warren Farrell, co-author of “The Boy Crisis,” says America has a problem with males and it’s one that goes like this: They’re not being raised to be men. And how true that is. Today’s boys are being taught that masculinity is a disease. Where that’s led is to a rash of fatherless homes — and where that’s led is to a rash of behavioral, mental and psychological problems with the nation’s youth. It’s high time to end the experiment called radical feminism, the one where men aren’t needed and women can raise kids without male presences. It’s time to — as Farrell’s coined it — Make the American Family Great Again. MAGA, with a kick. “The boy crisis resides where fathers do not reside,” Farrell says. And in recent weeks, he’s met and spoken with a variety of folks from President Donald Trump’s administration, including officials with the Health and Human Services agency, the Department of Justice and within the hallowed halls of the White House. His goal is to create a national MAFGA program that would offer a Father Warrior Training program to help get America’s males back on the leadership track — to help bring back the once-valued masculine traits of responsibility, duty, strength and yes, love. To help teach those in the elementary levels how to be a proper father. This is no small task. Neither is it trite.)

— How Much Should Older Workers And Retirees Invest In The Stock Market? – Steve Vernon
https://www.forbes.com/sites/stevevernon/2020/03/03/how-much-should-older-workers-and-retirees-invest-in-the-stock-market/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Start by developing sources of retirement income that won’t drop when the market crashes; these sources should cover the cost of your “needs,” or at least come close. Such sources include Social Security, a pension if you’re lucky enough to have one, and cost-effective annuities you can purchase from an insurance company. Once you’ve developed enough sources of guaranteed retirement income to cover your basic living expenses, hopefully you should feel confident enough to invest your remaining savings significantly in stocks to give your money the potential for growth. This part of your savings can be invested in low-cost target date funds, balanced funds, stock index funds, or real estate investment trust (REIT) mutual funds. Then, use these savings to generate a regular retirement paycheck through a systematic withdrawal plan that covers the cost of your “wants”—hobbies, travel, gifts, and spoiling the grandchildren. When the stock market crashes, be prepared to reduce this retirement paycheck—and the money you’re spending on “wants” —while you’re waiting for the market to recover. If you put this type of plan in place, then, when the market crashes, you should have the patience and confidence to keep your investments in place and ride out the crash. Spend the time necessary to design a thoughtful retirement investing strategy, and you’ll be able to enjoy your life in retirement.)

KIPLINGER
— 5 Tips to Help Your Retirement Savings Last as Long as You Live – Matthew Stratman (DIERSEN: The cost of living in Wheaton is very high. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is dramatically lower because my Democrat superiors in the federal government wasted my career and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. Consequently, starting this year, my wife and I are forced to spend our retirement savings to pay for non-discretionary expenses.) 
https://www.kiplinger.com/slideshow/retirement/T037-S001-cheapest-u-s-cities-for-early-retirement-2019/index.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 3. Adopt an adaptive withdrawal (and spending) plan. Be flexible with your discretionary retirement spending, and be willing to reduce income when needed. By setting guardrails you know when to decrease the income in the years when the portfolio is in decline. Having an adaptive withdrawal strategy will allow for higher income in years when the portfolio is rising and help protect your principal during a decline.)

February 28 Morning Edition

DAILY HERALD
— Endorsement: Almiron for Republicans in primary for DuPage County recorder
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20200228/endorsement-almiron-for-republicans-in-primary-for-dupage-county-recorder
(FROM THE ENDORSEMENT: It’s easy to understand why both candidates for the Republican nomination for DuPage County recorder consider the position a perfect fit for their credentials. Ron Almiron, an attorney from Wheaton, has a long and deep history of service in local projects, service agencies, school and community boards and even more recently treasurer and CFO for the Wheaton Mosquito Abatement District. Babette Holder Youngberg, a communications professional from Wheaton, boasts a long history in real estate and property management that is specifically relevant to the duties of this office. Both candidates speak knowledgeably and think creatively about a role that demands a disciplined combination of attention to detail and customer service. Choosing between them is no simple matter for voters. The distinction for us comes down to depth of community involvement and level of detail in the vision for the office. Almiron’s diverse range of community, school and government activities gives him a slightly more refined sense for operating a government office, and he approaches the role with compelling intensity. Whoever ultimately wins the election in November, there is a possibility he or she will not serve long. If voters approve a consolidation measure in the General Election, the elected recorder’s position will be eliminated and the duties folded into other county offices. Youngberg and Almiron argue that the public is best served by an elected recorder but both agree to work cooperatively toward a smooth transition if voters decide to eliminate the office. Republican voters can’t go wrong with either candidate in this primary. Our choice is Almiron.)
— Endorsement: Grogan for Republicans for DuPage County auditor
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20200228/endorsement-grogan-for-republicans-for-dupage-county-auditor
(FROM THE ENDORSEMENT: In nearly 12 years as DuPage County auditor, Bob Grogan has produced an impressive reputation for transparency, efficiency and competence. With justifiable pride, the Downers Grove Republican points to various state firsts he has implemented — including the first county checkbook online, the first transparency portal and the first auditor hotline. He has served as the president of the Association of Illinois County Auditors and notes that he knows how “to ask the awkward questions” that an auditor must raise when working with county officials to fix errors, find wrongdoing or just make things work better. His challenger for the party’s nomination in the March 17 primary is retired bank officer Jeffrey Mack, of Downers Grove. Mack has an appropriate financial background for auditor and a reasonable familiarity with the duties of the office. His strongest argument, however, is that he could bring a “fresh set of eyes” to the operation. That’s not an irrelevant point, but Mack doesn’t build on it by demonstrating why a new perspective alone would justify replacing an auditor with Grogan’s record and credentials. Grogan is Republicans’ strongest alternative for the November ballot, and he gets our endorsement.)

ROBERT FEDER
— Before he became ‘Mayor Pete,’ Buttigieg worked as NBC 5 investigative intern (DIERSEN: Were you an intern? GAO audits IRS. When I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinated did not want me to transfer, but failing that, they wanted me to transfer as a GS-4 Step 1 (currently $34,610/year) intern, that is, to suffer a $61,821/year (64%) pay cut in today’s dollars. They painted what GAO Analysts do as being a unique “trade or occupation.” They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, or veteran. They viciously demonized, denigrated, and condemned the fact a) that I had worked for IRS 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, b) that much of what IRS Revenue Officers do is similar to what GAO Analysts do, c) that I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, d) that I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, and e) that I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul. They were furious that I transferred with me almost 12 years of federal seniority, 30 days of unused vacation days, and 130 unused sick days.)

For me, it includes the candidate’s record of defending and advancing the Republican Party platform, including its traditional family, right to life, immigration, Second Amendment, illegal drugs, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. For me, it includes their record of opposing the promotion of 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, and retaliation for opposing promotion of the aforesaid.)

If I had not been taking graduate finance courses and earned a master’s degree in finance, GAO would have succeeded in forcing me to retire earlier than it did.)

— Facebook Censors Christian Objection to Democrat Pete Buttigieg – Corinne Weaver
https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/techwatch/corinne-weaver/2020/02/25/facebook-censors-christian-objection-democrat-pete
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The First Amendment covers freedom of speech and freedom of religion. But what if someone’s religion does not allow homosexuality? Facebook apparently deems that kind of speech to be “hate speech.” When the founder of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, Peter LaBarbera, posted on Facebook that he had a moral objection to Democratic candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg, his post was removed. The post stated, “No amount of politics, no amount of media persuasion or #LGBTQ lobbying power, no celebrity endorsements, will ever make homosexuality right. It is clearly condemned by God (Romans 1), & nature discriminates against it. We don’t want #MayorPete teaching kids that Wrong is Right.” According to a screenshot attached to LaBarbera’s tweet, Facebook told him, “Your post goes against our Community Standards on hate speech and inferiority. No one else can see your post. We have these standards to protect certain groups of people being described as inferior to others.” Christianity and Catholicism have objections to the act of homosexuality on a moral, traditional basis. So does traditional Islam. In fact, a news page called “Islamic Breaking News” on Facebook shared an image of the “[f]irst gay Muslim wedding” in the U.K. The page wrote on the post, “This is what caused Allah to destroy the people of Lut. A.S.” Commenters on the post wrote, “May All Mighty Allah grant them punishment,” and “Its against the preaching of all prophet of Allah.” The post has been up since Jan. 18. It has not been removed for “hate speech.” Facebook’s hate speech policy states, “We define hate speech as a direct attack on people based on what we call protected characteristics — race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, caste, sex, gender, gender identity, and serious disease or disability.” Furthermore, “Expressions that a protected characteristic shouldn’t exist” are also banned from the platform. Could the problem be criticism of Buttigieg? Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has worked with the Democratic candidate before, recommending campaign hires for the South Bend mayor.)
