— An age of agency awaits us – IAN ROWE
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/restoring-america/faith-freedom-self-reliance/an-age-of-agency-awaits-us
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Two popular visions have risen to answer this question. I call them “blame the system” and “blame the victim” narratives. The “blame the system” mindset argues that impediments to young people achieving the American dream are primarily due to systems of oppression, which create institutional and systemic barriers around race, class, and gender. In this worldview, any undesirable outcome in a person’s life has nothing to do with their individual situation but rather is a result of oppressive forces rigged against them. . .While “blame the system” places the entire focus on society’s oppressive forces, the “blame the victim” mindset suggests that roadblocks to realizing the American dream are due to an individual’s bad choices or lack of effort. America isn’t the problem if you are unsuccessful; you are the problem. “Blame the victim” accuses young people of being the architects of their own shortcomings, and the exhortations that accompany this mindset are all too familiar: “Have fewer babies outside marriage, and you won’t live in poverty.” “Commit fewer crimes, and you won’t be abused by the criminal justice system.” They are familiar because they are true at a surface level. They encourage behavior we want to propagate and discourage behavior we want to lessen.)

DENVER POST
— Teens feel pressure of perfection post-pandemic isolation. Students face the stress to perform well academically and in extracurricular activities. – JESSICA SEAMAN
(COMMENT: What motivated you to get a college degree? My father’s regretting not getting a college degree motived me. That motivated me a) to take college preparatory courses at Crete-Monee High School 1962-1966, b) to get a score of 24 on the ACT, c) to graduate in the upper 20% of my 1966 class, d) to get accepted by UIC, and e) to earn enough money to buy a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in 1966 to commute to/from my parents’ home in Crete and classes at UIC. My outstanding father fought type 1 diabetes from childhood, was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma, was discouraged by doctors from going to college because of his diabetes, and almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. Almost all the breadwinners on the 1200 block of Wood Street in Crete where we lived earned money more than he did. I remember when he owned a bottom of the line 1951 Plymouth straight-6 with a stick shift, our neighbor to the north owned a top of the line 1958 Buick V-8 with an automatic, and our neighbor to the south owned a top of the line 1957 Pontiac V-8 with an automatic. He bought a bottom of the line 1961 Chevrolet straight-6 in 1962 and a bottom of the line 1967 Chevrolet straight-6 in 1967. According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, the only reason why I became a college student was to avoid the draft.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Five of the six top Republican candidates for governor appeared at a Washington, Ill., forum last night to address a range of issues, including the economy and Second Amendment. Darren Bailey, Gary Rabine, Paul Schimpf, Jesse Sullivan, and Max Solomon all attended. The biggest applause came toward the end of the event when Bailey walked across the stage and pointed to an empty chair where Richard Irvin would have been seated. “I want to talk about this empty seat,” Bailey said, pausing for the audience to cheer for a while. Bailey then accused Irvin of “grossly” lying while on the campaign trail. Bailey said Irvin may talk about cutting taxes, “but he raised taxes in Aurora.” And Irvin’s running mate, Avery Bourne, once told Bailey to put on his mask while he was fighting the mask mandate in the General Assembly. “Friends, enough is enough,” Bailey said.)

(COMMENT: Ever-increasing, the anti-conservatives who run the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) treat conservatives, that is, treat platform Republicans, that is, treat Republicans as being second class citizens. Everyone in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton sees how the aforesaid treat me and treat my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and how the aforesaid treated my service as a) the Republican fundraiser so that Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019, b) the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, c) a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member 2003-2011, d) the MTRO webmaster 2008-2010 and 2000-2004, e) an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member 2003-2007, and f) an American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member 2001-2004.)
https://thefederalist.com/2022/04/19/ken-burns-follows-the-revolutionary-life-of-benjamin-franklin-in-new-pbs-documentary/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For the following two decades, even as Britain and her American colonies grew apart, he hoped to find the terms that would prevent an irreparable breach. But a searing experience in London’s Cockpit after the Boston Tea Party convinced Franklin of the necessity of a separation from Great Britain, which would never view its colonial subjects as anything other than second-class citizens.)

— At Wheaton’s Edison Middle School, black eighth-graders to lecture whites on ‘black hair culture,’ ‘importance of Black History Month’
(COMMENT: This school is in my DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9. Per Breakthrough Ideas: “The Edison Middle School Principal should be focusing on academics instead of these types of presentations. Only 42 percent of the students perform at grade level in English Language Arts and only 33 percent perform at grade level in Math. Black student achievement is one-third White student achievement according to 2019 data. No racial breakout of data is available for 2021 at the ISBE Report Card, NOTE: Prior to COVID, 57 and 45 percent of students were at grade level in ELA and Math respectively – those are NOT statistics to brag about either.”)
https://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/621598562-at-wheaton-s-edison-school-black-eighth-graders-to-lecture-whites-on-black-hair-culture-importance-of-black-history-month
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A black-only student group at Wheaton’s Edison School has been conducting lectures for white students this week, instructing them on what words it is appropriate to use around blacks, why it is important that whites find Black History Month important and the particulars of “black hair culture.” An email to parents and students obtained by DuPage Policy Journal outlined the details of Edison’s school-sponsored “Panthers in Black” lecture series. “There are different endings such as ‘-er’ and ‘-a’ which have two different meanings,” one slide from the presentation reads. The presentation goes on to dictate how the word should be approached. “When it is used between African Americans, the definition of the word changes and is commonly used as a term of endearment such as “friend” or “buddy”. ONLY African Americans can use it in this context, not other races,” another slide reads. The Panthers in Black Club is closed to non-black students. “If there are any African American students who would like to join Panthers In Black (PIB), please contact your school counselor. PIB works towards raising awareness about Black history, culture, and racial injustice,” the slideshow reads at the end. The lecture took place without parent notice. The lecturer was delivered to sixth-graders on Monday, March 7, seventh-graders on Tuesday, March 8, and to the eighth grade on Wednesday, March 9. The series was announced by the school via email. “This week, a group of students from our Panthers in Black group is presenting a short slideshow during part of the ELA block. The presentation is called POV from PIB (Point of View from Panthers in Black). The presenters are 8th grade students who are Black and want to help their non-black peers learn how to avoid saying some of the offensive and hurtful things they have heard in our school,” the school said in an email. “Some of the topics include the history and importance of Black History Month, the history of the n-word and the importance of never saying it, Black hair culture and the importance of not touching people’s hair and more. “We truly want our school to be a place where all students feel seen, accepted, respected, and valued. We are so proud of these girls for having the courage to share these important lessons with their peers in the hopes of creating a more welcoming and inclusive environment in our school.” Edison School is part of CUSD 200 and has 664 students in 2021, 464 whites, 59 Hispanics, 53 Asians and 42 blacks, according to the Illinois State Board of Education.)

(COMMENT: While he worked for the Daily Herald, Krol reported on a July 5, 2003 picnic that I organized in the Prairie Path Park in my precinct for voters in my precinct, Jeanne Ives’ precinct to the east and Debra Olson’s precinct to the west.

DUPAGE COUNTY ELECTION DIVISION
— Precinct Committeeperson
(COMMENT: I should write a book about serving as a Republican Precinct Committeeman. I was appointed in Milton Township in 1999, elected in 2000, and reelected every 2 years since. I served as the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) webmaster 2000-2004 and 2008-2010. I unsuccessfully ran for the open MTRO Treasurer office in 2004.

https://www.dupageco.org/Election/Candidates_and_Campaigns/48691/
(FROM THE POSTING: The grass roots and foundation of the political parties are its precinct committeepersons. They serve as the foot soldiers to the most fundamental political unit of government, the precinct. The precinct committeeperson helps shape party policy and participates in the selection process of candidates. A precinct committeeperson is elected to a two-year term in the even-year primary elections. Expectations of a precinct committeeperson: Represent the party’s voters at the county central committee convention to elect the county central chairman and its officers. The precinct committeeman casts a total number of party votes, (weighted vote), as cast in the precinct at the recent primary election. Attend and become involved in the party’s Township meetings. Become a voter registrar and register all qualified constituents. Appoint and fill vacancies of election judges for the precinct polling place. Provide candidate and election information to the voters. Circulate petitions for candidates prior to the primary election. Become familiar with the elected officials and legislatures so the concerns of the voters can be passed on to them)

ILLINOIS FAMILY INSTITUTE
— School-Approved Racism in Western Suburb of Chicago (Wheaton) – Laurie Higgins
(COMMENT: This school is in my DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9. Per Breakthrough Ideas: “The Edison Middle School Principal should be focusing on academics instead of these types of presentations. Only 42 percent of the students perform at grade level in English Language Arts and only 33 percent perform at grade level in Math. Black student achievement is one-third White student achievement according to 2019 data. No racial breakout of data is available for 2021 at the ISBE Report Card, NOTE: Prior to COVID, 57 and 45 percent of students were at grade level in ELA and Math respectively – those are NOT statistics to brag about either.”)
https://illinoisfamily.org/education/school-approved-racism-in-western-suburb-of-chicago/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It appears the racism identified as “anti-racism” and being endorsed all across America is bearing rotten fruit at ever younger ages and in ever more perverse ways. Just last week, administrators at Edison Middle School in Wheaton, Illinois allowed student members of the blacks-only “Panthers in Black” school club to lecture peers on the intricacies of using various forms of the “n”-word. Students learned who is permitted to use the “n”-word and which “n”-word suffix is appropriate in what context. Parents of students forced to listen to this non-voluntary lecture were not notified ahead of time or asked to sign a permission slip. Eighteen slides were included in the lecture addressing topics like the importance of Black History Month. This slide was notable for its vagueness. The Panthers in Black advocate for “recognizing” and “promoting” appreciation of African American “achievement, culture, heritage, sacrifices, and accomplishments, including past and current events.” Several things are unclear.)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— Despite what most Democrats say, the US is worth fighting for
(COMMENT: Which countries do Democrats want to invade and to conquer the United States? They would be countries that promote dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, abolition of the First and Second Amendment, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. They would be countries that would get rid of those who are law enforcement officers, Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owners, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

NEW YORK TIMES
— First Amendment Scholars Want to See the Media Lose These Cases. Some legal experts say it is time to draw a sharp line between protected speech and harmful disinformation. – Jeremy Peters
(COMMENT: Since 2000, my critics/opponents have accused me of promoting false claims and harmful disinformation with my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters. I should sue my critics/opponents. I would focus on those who have done the most a) to stop me from sending out the newsletters and b) to stop everyone from reading the newsletters. I would focus on those who a) stopped me from raising funds from DuPage County Republicans so that DuPage County Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day parade and fireworks, b) gerrymandered my precinct in 2015, c) ended my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship in 2012, d) ended my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership in 2011, e) ended my Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) webmaster service in 2010 and 2004, f) ended my Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee membership in 2007, g) tried to get ICRC to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters in 2006, h) ended my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board membership in 2004, and i) viciously ended my bid to serve as MTRO Treasurer in 2004.)
https://www.nytimes.com/2022/03/13/business/media/fox-news-first-amendment-sullivan.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The suits, which are being argued in several state and federal courts, accuse Project Veritas, Fox News, The Gateway Pundit, One America News and others of intentionally promoting and profiting from false claims of voter fraud during the 2020 election, and of smearing innocent civil servants and businesses in the process. If the outlets prevail, these experts say, the results will call into question more than a half-century of precedent that created a clear legal framework for establishing when news organizations can be held liable for publishing something that’s not true.)

WASHINGTON POST
— If You Already Hate Your New Job, It’s Fine to Quit – Kathryn Minshew
(COMMENT: I never hated my jobs, but my Democrat superiors wanted me to. I should write a book about adverse actions that my Democrat superiors in the federal government took against me and how I responded. After my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, my attorney Walter T. Charlton filed a lawsuit against them in 1998. After they made it clear that they would never again assign me to audits of IRS and assigned me to audits of federal financial industry regulators in 1990, a) I started taking graduate finance courses at IIT in 1992 and earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading in 1997 and b) I became a Forensic Accountant in 1997, Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, Certified Government Financial Manager in 1994, and Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990. After they a) gave me an unfair performance appraisal in 1989, b) made it clear that they were going to get rid of me that year, c) got rid of my mentor in 1987 who had hired me, gotten me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and promoted me in 1986, and d) made it clear that GAO would never promote me again, I filed a grievance and sought help from Henry Hyde. After they forced me to take a $20,901 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980, I a) became a licensed CPA in 1981, b) passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and c) completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980. After my Democrat IRS superiors a) made it clear that IRS would never promote me again, b) disallowed my education deductions in 1978, c) got rid of my mentor in 1975 who had promoted me in 1974, 1972, and 1972, and d) disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974, I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, started taking graduate accounting courses at DePaul in 1976, and passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. After my Democrat Firestone Stores boss made it clear that he disapproved of my demographics, I accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile. After my Democrat Post Office superiors a) forced me to resign in 1969 and b) disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968, I earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Perhaps you have read the book “1984” by George Orwell and published in 1949. In the totalitarian superstate Oceania, the government purposely breaks up families in order for the government to keep its power. The family structure needs to be non-existent so that the people cannot unite or feel loved. Here’s another interesting quote: “The planned destruction of the family was part of the communist agenda from its inception by Karl Marx and Frederic Engels. It became government policy in the USSR in about 1917. It was so successful in the USSR that it threatened to destroy society in the USSR. Curiously, while in the 1940s the USSR took steps to repair the damages its family-hostile policies had caused, American communists imported the Soviet agenda for the planned destruction of the family into the USA.” (Statement of Bill Wood, July 17, 2003, before the U.S. Congress Committee on Ways and Means)

That is, ever-increasingly, everyone is under ever-increasing pressure to discriminate against those who are White, male, older, heterosexual, non-Trump-haters, conservative, Republican, non-veteran, married, citizens of America, those who do not have financial, health, and/or other problems, those who have more money than others, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

— Immersive experiences draw audience in for dialogue about diversity, equity and inclusion. Student and faculty actors bring stories of discrimination to life — and then it’s the audience’s turn to step up. – Grayson Schmidt
(COMMENT: My critics/opponents a) reject the equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) plank in the Republican Party platform, b) have personally benefited or want to benefit from Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, Equity, or Inclusion, c) have children and/or grandchildren who have benefited or who might benefit from AA, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, an/or d) have not had to pay the price of AA, Diversity, Equity, or Inclusion. They have no problem with Oldsmobile withdrawing a job offer that I had accepted in 1971 when I was 22 years old saying that Oldsmobile had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. They have no problem with IRS and GAO promoting over me minorities and females who had a) less job-related work experience than I had, b) less job-related education that I had, and/or c) fewer professional certifications and licenses than I had.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Failed Democrats like Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx are not only dragging Cook County down the tubes but they are also dragging the state down with it. Failure of officials like Gov. J.B. Pritzker to speak out against Lightfoot and Foxx tend to aggravate the state’s dysfunctional policies as businesses and homeowners flee to other states. Among those leaving are Chicago Police officers who are being chased out by Lightfoot’s failed policies. The Chicago mess is reflected in the tightening grip Democrats have on the congressional seats as diversity in views vanishes and undermines the public understanding of issues.)

Kresges in Chicago Heights. But nevertheless, I a) took college-preparatory courses, b) got into the upper 20% of my class, c) got a 24 on the ACT, d) got accepted by UIC in 1966, e) got accepted by NIU in 1969 and graduated with a bachelor of science degree in management in 1970, f) got accepted by Loyola in 1972 and graduated with an MBA in 1976, g) got accepted by DePaul in 1976 and graduated with a master’s degree in accounting in 1980, h) passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, i) passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and j) got accepted by IIT in 1992 and graduated with a master’s degree in finance in 1997. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes attribute the aforesaid to my benefitting from “White privilege.”)

The group meets the second Thursday evening of each month from 7-9 and has had meetings at various businesses in Bakersfield. . .The top priority of the GBRA is implementing and developing a Precinct Leader (captain/committeeman) Program in Bakersfield and Kern County.

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— Schimpf, who ran unsuccessfully for state attorney general in 2014, is the second Republican to declare his candidacy. Businessman Gary Rabine, who heads a paving and roofing company, has also declared he’s running. Reps. Rodney Davis — who isn’t shy about criticizing Pritzker as “an unmitigated disaster” — and Darin LaHood have not ruled out a run for governor. State Sen. Darren Bailey is expected to announce his candidacy next week. And Republican National Committeeman and Chicago attorney Richard Porter is toying with a campaign, too. Davis and LaHood are waiting to see how their districts could be adjusted in the upcoming redistricting process. Along with rejecting Pritzker’s handling of the pandemic, there’s another theme that will play out in the gubernatorial race: who supports Trump. So far, all the GOP contenders do. – Shia Kapos

— Gov. J.B. Pritzker knows what angry taxpayers need: Legal weed – John Kass (DIERSEN: What do your critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes do? Mine talk and/or act like they a) did smoke pot, b) are smoking pot, c) want to smoke pot, d) want to kill all restrictions on smoking pot, e) want to make money selling pot, and/or f) want governments to take in lots of revenue from the sale of pot.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: With economic refugees continuing to flee Illinois — we’ve lost more residents than any state in the U.S. over the decade — taxpayers have waited in vain for the political ruling class to explain how they’ll reverse the Illinois Exodus. But there were no answers from the ruling Democrats, Gov. J.B. Pritzker, House Speaker Mike Madigan and their Illinois Republican handmaidens. Until now. They’ve made weed legal. Logically, it follows that our wise masters want the people of Illinois to get stoned. Get stoned, Illinois. Thanks, Pritzker. Thanks, Boss Madigan. You’ve made Illinois into the Land of the Lotus-Eaters. What this means is that angry Illinois taxpayers can finally stop being angry. We can forget our mental anguish at being left behind in the Illinois Exodus by smarter, luckier people who got out when they could. All this reminds me of the companions of Odysseus in the land of the lotus-eaters. Once they bit into the lotus fruit, they lost their anger and wrath. They sat down and went to sleep. And taxpayers who remain in Illinois may legally sit in passive stupor before their video screens, waiting for Grubhub to bring Baja Blast from Taco Bell and playing “Call of Duty” until dawn. But don’t think I’m being critical of pot smokers. And medical marijuana users? I don’t mean you. If weed helps soothe your pain, do what’s best.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: But ask the veteran Northwest Side lawmaker what he sees as the biggest change, and he replies: the digitalization of democracy — the growing influence of social media to affect policy combined with a decline in the number of media outlets covering state government. “It’s the difference from a representative democracy to a direct democracy,” Cullerton said. “So, the old model (for voters) is, ‘I’m busy. I’m hiring you. Go down to Springfield. Listen to testimony. Make your informed decisions. Every two years, I’ll check on you,’” he said. “And now, you just go directly to the legislator (who says), ‘We don’t need to listen to any testimony. I got 500 emails and 5,000 tweets retweeted saying I’ve got to vote for this bill.’”)

ROCKFORD REGISTER STAR
— The Winnebago County elected job no one wants Precinct committee posts prove tough for party leaders to fill – Isaac Guerrero (DIERSEN: I should write a book about what discourages conservatives like me from serving as a Republican Precinct Committeeman in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois. According to this article, in Winnebago County, “Only 86 (23%) people filed to run for 378 precinct committee jobs up for grabs in the March primary.” In DuPage County, Republicans filed for Precinct Committeeman in 364 (39%) of DuPage County’s 930 Precincts. 2 years ago, 470 (51%) filed in those 930 precincts. 39 (57%) filed in Addison Township’s 69 precincts, 23 (56%) filed in Winfield Township’s 41 precincts, 50 (48%) filed in Bloomingdale Township’s 104 precincts, 56 (43%) filed in Milton Township’s 130 precincts, 29 (43%) filed in Wayne Township’s 68 precincts, 63 (40%) filed in Downers Grove Township’s 156 precincts, 48 (35%) filed in York Township’s 136 precincts, 34 (26%) file in Lisle Township’s 129 precincts, and 22 (23%) file in Naperville Township’s 97 precincts.)
https://www.rrstar.com/news/20191207/winnebago-county-elected-job-no-one-wants
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the lowest-stakes election this voting cycle, candidates don’t even care if they’re thrown off the ballot. “If someone goes to the trouble of challenging my petitions and I’m thrown off the ballot, I’ll just get appointed after the election,” said county Auditor Bill Crowley, one of many precinct committeemen who didn’t trouble himself with getting the required 10 signatures this year. Precinct committeeman was once a job that aspiring politicians used to get a foot in the door of their party. These days, the elected position draws little interest. That’s understandable given the lack of pay and prestige and the generally minimal responsibilities. There are times, though, when the precinct committeeman plays a critical role. If a state representative dies in office or resigns, committeemen select a replacement. Committeemen historically have served as the foot soldiers of the two major parties, walking their neighborhoods to hand out literature and talk up their candidates. The lack of interest in the job troubles people who understand that committeemen don’t just build their parties from the ground up — they help nourish democracy at the grass roots. “As a precinct committeeperson, I teach people how to vote,” said Rockford Alderwoman Karen Hoffman, D-8, who also serves as a precinct representative in Ward 8, Precinct 3. She’ll be on the March ballot to keep that job. “I go out and I say, ‘OK, guys, if you’re not registered to vote, here’s what you need to do, here’s where you need to go, this is the deadline.’ I speak to people about early voting all the time. My whole purpose is to get out the vote. You’d be surprised how many people don’t understand the voting process. “Hopefully, after listening to me they’ll vote for Democrats — that’s my hope,” Hoffman said. “But I just want people to vote, no matter how they vote, to be a part of the process. My whole purpose is to teach and train people to vote and become involved in the election process. And if you don’t want to do that, then you really shouldn’t complain.” Only 86 people filed to run for 378 precinct committee jobs up for grabs in the March primary. (A committeeman, though elected, is a party official, not a government official.) Nearly a quarter of the 86 didn’t bother to obtain the minimum 10 signatures on their nominating petitions as required by law. Linda Lundquist, running in Ward 8, Precinct 4, is one who takes the job seriously. “When I went knocking door to door collecting signatures, I met some people who shared with me that they don’t like to get involved in politics,” Lundquist said. “But like it or not, we are all involved in politics. Now, whether we choose to be engaged is another matter entirely. But I think that the more of us who are engaged in our government, the more that our government will reflect all of us. Because when we are engaged and when we are involved, our government and our politics becomes so much richer. And the community is richer because the government truly reflects all of us.” Lundquist is something of an overachiever — she obtained nearly 150 signatures. “Wow. That’s a lot of door knocking,” Crowley said. “That’s remarkable.” Crowley obtained just one signature — his own — on his nominating petition. He and dozens of other precinct committee candidates will be elected in March even though they didn’t collect the 10 voter signatures required by state law. A resident of Crowley’s precinct could have filed paperwork by Dec. 9 to challenge the validity of his petition and knock him off the ballot, but no one did. “The trouble is, we can’t get enough people to run for precinct committeeman,” Crowley said. “I mean, we can’t give these positions away. And we’re giving them away.” The job’s low profile doesn’t help, either. “The precinct committee system is a very arcane system and very few people understand how it works,” said Charles Laskonis, chairman of the Winnebago County Democratic Central Committee. “Sometimes, I guess it’s just the political wonks that consider it cool to run for precinct committeeman, just so they can say that they’re part of the political process.” Rock Valley College trustee Gloria Cudia, a Republican, collected nine signatures on her petition to represent Ward 10, Precinct 2 in Rockford. Rockford Alderman Tuffy Quinonez, D-11, obtained only two signatures on his petition to represent Ward 11, Precinct 1. He could have had three signatures if he had simply put his own John Hancock on the petition, but he didn’t bother. Crowley, Cudia and Quinonez said they simply didn’t have time to obtain 10 signatures while juggling hectic schedules as the Dec. 2 filing deadline approached. Crowley knows the drill better than most. He has served as a Democratic precinct committeeman for decades. He’s running for re-election next year to keep his county auditor job. He’s also seeking a precinct committee post in Harlem Township. Even after appointments, however, most precinct positions remain vacant. “Try finding a Democrat who wants to run for Burritt Township precinct committeeman,” said Laskonis, referring to the sparsely populated township that’s home to far more cornstalks than humans and far more registered Republicans than Democrats. “You can’t even find someone to appoint to that job. Maybe there’s someone. But I haven’t found them.” A good precinct committeeman may be hard to find these days, but there’s really no need to worry, said state Sen. Dave Syverson, R-Rockford. “There’s a lot of people out there who volunteer for campaigns and they basically do the role of the precinct committeeman, but without the official title,” Syverson said. “They get out there and they walk door to door and they’re actively supporting party candidates. They’re doing the same work for individual candidates, just not through the local party infrastructure. So it’s really the role of the political party to encourage and help people understand why it’s important to do this grass-roots kind of work.” Either way, there are plenty of benefits to walking around your block and introducing yourself to your neighbors, Lundquist said. “I feel good about Rockford, in general,” Lundquist said. “There’s so many good things happening in Rockford, really. But in my small neck of the woods, in my precinct, I felt so good after knocking on doors and meeting all these people who are my neighbors. “I wish everyone would do this because everyone would feel better about the state of the world,” she said. “You’d see we’re in much better shape than what is sometimes shown to us.”)

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Hispanics at Harvard unite to protect Hispanics at Harvard. During the 1980s and 1990s, GAO employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who had not made GS-13 (currently $101,176) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $119,559) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $140,634) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $170,800) by age 40 DID NOT UNITE TO PROTECT THE AFORESAID. Instead, to keep their jobs as long as possible, virtually all of them “cut deals” with their superiors. Most commonly, they agreed to help their superiors get rid of their employees like me who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who had not made the aforesaid promotion deadlines.

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— Demographic Shift Poised to Test Trump’s 2020 Strategy Base of white, working-class voters projected to decline and be replaced by Democratic-leaning groups – Aaron Zitner and Dante Chinni (DIERSEN: How bad are your demographics? Ever-increasingly, Trump-haters encourage everyone to dump those who are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. I should write a book about those in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois who ever-increasingly dump the aforesaid.)

I used public transit a lot in 1971 and 1973-1997. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who hint/imply/argue/shout that they would never stoop to use public transit.)

— ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ ‘I have long been particularly concerned with the lack of intellectual diversity at the law school.’ – Stephen Bainbridge 
https://www.wsj.com/articles/notable-quotable-diversity-and-inclusion-11578008804
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As regular readers know, I’m up for a merit raise at UCLAW this year and am now required to submit a statement of how I contribute to the University’s goals in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. I have just emailed the statement to the administration. It reads as follows: “Although I am aware and respectful of the many dimensions within which a university properly seeks a diverse faculty and student body, I have long been particularly concerned with the lack of intellectual diversity at the law school. A survey of U.S. law professors in general found that white Democratic professors (both male and female), Jewish professors, and nonreligious professors ‘account for most (or all) of the overrepresentation among racial, gender, religious, and ideological groups in law teaching.’ The groups that ‘account for most of the underrepresentation among racial, gender, religious, and ideological groups in law teaching’ are Republicans (both male and female), Protestants, and Catholics. This disparity persists even though ‘religious and political diversity are probably more important for viewpoint diversity than gender diversity and roughly as important as racial diversity.’)
