— Section 230 Reform: Left and Right Want It, for Very Different Reasons – Daren Bakst
https://www.heritage.org/technology/commentary/section-230-reform-left-and-right-want-it-very-different-reasons
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Big Tech, including social media platforms, are now under the microscope, and legislators have very different ideas on what, if anything, needs to be done. Some want to reduce the chilling of speech by social media companies. And some want to use Section 230 reform as a way to chill speech still further. There should be wariness of getting on board with “230 reform” without recognizing that many on the left have a completely different view of what reform looks like.)

(DIERSEN: I worked for the minimum wage 1964-1966. The $1.25/hour that I earned then is worth $10.64/hour in today’s dollars. I washed dishes in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights part-time during my junior and senior years at Crete-Monee High School and full-time during the summer in between. With the money that I earned and saved, I bought a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint (a poor man’s GTO) in May of 1966 to commute to classes at UIC in the fall from my parents’ home in Crete.)

DAILY PRINCETONIAN
— Confronting Gerrymandering: The Power of Just Data – Collin Riggins
(DIERSEN: Only 157 in my precinct voted for Trump while 269 voted for Biden. LGBTQ-promoting churches are just north and just south of my precinct. My precinct’s polling place is the LGBTQ-promoting and BLM-promoting church just south of the precinct. About half the homes in my precinct are represented on Wheaton City Council by an LGBTQer whose wife is an LGBTQ activist. Ever-since the 2015 gerrymandering, my precinct contains the Wheaton Warrenville School District 200 Administration building, a public grade school, and a public middle school. My precinct has fewer middle-income voters, more lower-income voters, and more upper-income voters than many other precincts. My precinct has had more turn over (home sales teardowns) than many other precincts. From what I see, about 4 out 5 times when a home owned by Republicans is sold, it is bought by Democrats.)
https://www.dailyprincetonian.com/article/2021/04/gerrymandering-data-census-redistricting-just-data
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For example, Kmetz outlined a problem in the electoral system that affects communities nationwide: there is currently not a centralized database for election results on the precinct level. As a result, the impact that smaller communities have in elections is obscured. Kmetz stated that this “makes it difficult to determine how changing district lines could impact elections.” So, rather than taking very zoomed-out election results as they are, the Lab started a project called OpenPrecincts. Working with local organizations to ensure their use of data is collaborative, transparent, and just, OpenPrecincts is a database that offers precinct-level election results for all 50 states. That way, context can be attributed to data, which can help explain disparities in voter turnout, the prevalence of gerrymandering, and other areas for structural change.)

https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/breaking/ct-election-municipal-low-turnout-20210407-ecvcvo77nbap7nxzox3glwxkyq-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: At the county level, voter turnout mostly hovered in the low to midteens, typical for many counties in consolidated elections. On the lower end, McHenry County reported a voter turnout of 9.5%, and Kankakee County topped voter turnouts across the counties at 18.6%. The pandemic didn’t have a significant effect on voter turnout, according to county clerks’ offices, with sufficient alternative options for people to vote early or by mail instead of in person. In Cook, DuPage and Lake counties, turnout was 14.7%, 15.6% and 13.7%, respectively. In Will County, southwest of Chicago, 15.8% of voters cast a ballot Tuesday. That’s nearly 3 percentage points higher than the previous consolidated election in 2019, which had a voter turnout of 13.2%, said Charles Pelkie, chief of staff for the Will County clerk’s office.)

(DIERSEN: The Republican Party platform calls for equal opportunity, that is, for no race or gender based preference giving.

https://www.nprillinois.org/post/exploring-difference-between-equity-and-equality-america#stream/0
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Heritage Foundation: “Opinion: Biden’s Embrace of ‘Equity’ Means He’s Abandoned the Quest for Equality” — “President Biden preaches unity but practices division. Witness his ‘Executive ­Order on Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government,’ part of an unprecedented barrage of such orders.” Wall Street Journal: “‘Equity’ Is a Mandate to Discriminate” — “On his first day as president, Joe Biden issued an ‘Executive Order on Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities.’ Mr. Biden’s cabinet nominees must now explain whether this commitment to ‘equity’ means they intend to abolish ‘equal treatment under law.’ Their answers are a confused mess.” Wall Street Journal: “How Equality Lost to ‘Equity’” — “The first time Shelby Steele used the word ‘equity’ in one of his books—’White Guilt,’ published in 2006—he was referring to the value his father had accrued in restoring ‘three ramshackle homes to neat lower-middle-class acceptability.’”)

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/03/08/new-wedge-states-rush-block-transgender-athletes/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The US Department of Education suspended a decision that found racial “affinity groups” discriminated against students and staff, The Post has learned. The goal of the programs — used by the New York City public school system and other school districts — is to separate students and staff by racial groups in order to help address discrimination and “white privilege.” But the practice of separating schools into racial groups is discriminatory, a determination obtained by the Post found. The findings — reached during the waning days of former President Trump’s time in office in early January — were in response to a complaint about a Chicago-area school district’s “racial equity” training programs and lesson plans.)

They view it as an attempt to push liberal politics in the classroom. “It takes teachers and it puts them in a position to become advocates for a particular political agenda,” said Republican rules committee member Rep. Steve Reick of Woodstock last month. “There is a lot of resistance to turning teachers into advocates for particular political viewpoints.”)
