— 8 Painless Ways to Downsize Your Lifestyle in Retirement – Rachel Hartman
https://money.usnews.com/money/retirement/baby-boomers/articles/8-painless-ways-to-downsize-your-lifestyle-in-retirement
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Get involved with what’s close to your heart. Charities and nonprofit organizations are often looking for volunteers. Visit places that line up with your values or are related to the line of work you were in. If you spent decades in health care, you might find fulfillment donating several hours each week at a children’s hospital. If you had leadership roles, ask about local boards looking to add new members. You could find satisfaction helping others, and you probably won’t be spending money while you are volunteering. . .Take on tasks you enjoy.)

The Democrats who ran GAO used that gutting to get rid of GAO employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13 (currently $96,403) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $113,920) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $134,000) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $164,200) by age 40.)

https://www.forbes.com/sites/lcarrel/2018/12/24/taxpayers-unprepared-for-changes-in-trumps-tax-law/#58eb1c1c7f63
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The biggest change is the repeal of deductions for state and local taxes. Going forward, an individual can only claim up $10,000 for all state and local sales, income, and property taxes together. For example, a small house in New Jersey may pay just property taxes of $25,000. But with the $10,000 cap, taxpayers are going to be shelling out a lot more to the tax man.)

 

BUSINESS 2 COMMUNITY
— Is Your Content Hated or Anticipated? – Kelly MicKey (DIERSEN: If you asked my critics/opponents, their operatives, and/or their dupes about the content of GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, what would they say?)
https://www.business2community.com/content-marketing/is-your-content-hated-or-anticipated-02150825
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I’m going to ask you an embarrassing question. Is your content, that stuff you’re putting out there for potential clients, is it hated or is it anticipated? Which is it? Well, here’s a few ways to find out. Let’s start with “who is it about?” If you find, look at your content, if you find it’s mostly about you, about your firm, about what you do, about who had joined the firm, about the services you offer, eh, there’s a likelihood it’s not going to be anticipated as much. You’re trying to sell something and if it’s not helping the client, it’s probably more likely on the hated side. The second question to ask is “what’s the value I’m adding?” What is the value of this content. Again, if it’s only about you and your services, the only value is they learn a little bit about what you offer. But I don’t think most people are going to see that as “boy, that’s a great value.” Think, instead, of what can you instruct the person on, how can you educate them about something, how can you make them a better consumer of services or more knowledgeable about what issues that might impact that. If you’re doing those kinds of things, it’s more likely to be anticipated. The third question, and the third place to look is, “is it missed?” Do people express appreciation to you? “Wow, I follow your content- it’s really helpful!” Do they open emails regularly? Do they express that kind of appreciation? If you miss a time or they miss something, they’re asking you about it.)

Jones knew that his running as a Republican would be used to harm the Republican Party, so Jones must be an anti-Republican, if not a Republican-hater.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Governor Bruce Rauner and other Illinois Republicans rallied at the Benedictine University in Lisle on the eve of Tuesday’s election. Rauner was wrapping up a 9-day bus tour of the state with one last attempt to get his supporters to the polls. If we get the turnout, we’re going to win it,” predicted Rauner. He was joined by other Republicans including Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti. The two reminded voters that if Rauner loses the election Democrats will control the house and the governor’s mansion. “We have a governor that’s always stood up to Mike Madigan, and we have a governor who is going to stand up to the person that Mike Madigan appointed which is J.B. Pritzker,” said Sanguinetti. Rauner asked his supports to remind their neighbors to go the polls on Tuesday. He said voters have been telling him, “Stay strong, don’t back down don’t give in. You’re on the right track. Madigan has got to go.”)

KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE
— Kane County Board chairman: People leaving state to avoid high taxes ‘Harder and harder to live within our means’ – CHRIS WALKER (DIERSEN: Have you lived within your means? My wife and I have always done that. Since 1997, my income has been 59% less, that is, it has been only $51,864 instead of $125,325 in today’s dollars because my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer.” We spend far less on immediate pleasures than others who share our demographics.)
http://www.kcchronicle.com/2018/05/18/kane-county-board-chairman-people-leaving-state-to-avoid-high-taxes/a9k42ld/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Property tax levels [are] one of the biggest problems that we’re dealing with in Illinois,” he said. “People are moving away from Illinois. Literally 30,000 people moved out [last year].” Recalling his early years in public service, Lauzen said he’d hear from disgruntled homeowners. Now those homeowners aren’t calling him, but are leaving the state for good. “It usually was the seniors, the older folks, who used to call,” he said. “The older men would call up and they’d holler at you and the older ladies, they’d call and cried about the property tax burden. And they’re living on fixed incomes and it was a huge problem. “These days, I think many of us are finding that they don’t call anymore. It’s almost like they’ve given up and they just move so that’s a terrible thing.” Lauzen explained that change is long overdue and one of the ways to do that is to stop taxing people out of their homes. He believes he’s made a lot of progress during the past seven years. “Before I had the privilege to serve as chairman, we had a 50 percent increase in the property taxes to support the county,” he said. “In the last seven years it’s leveled out at zero increase.” That includes having to insert into the base the new construction while excluding a cost of living increase. “I’m very proud of holding the line,” he said. “But it is naturally getting harder and harder to live within our means without asking people for more.” Lauzen said that the public often complains about the spending, but that he’s doing his part to help reduce debt. “[The public] says that all you guys and ladies do is borrow and spend,” he said. “We’ve paid off approximately 65 percent of the debt in the last six to seven years.” Lauzen closed his presentation by sharing a slide of three beliefs that he referred to as “Truly Dumb Ideas.” He said that he hopes no one who attended the luncheon ever allows any of them to see the light of day. It includes combining all local pensions into one, increasing property taxes by 1 percent of the home value to pay off the state’s pensions unfunded liabilities and running the government like a business. Mark Pietrowski, DeKalb County chairman, and Scott Gryder, Kendall County chairman, also made presentations during the luncheon.)

— Alan Dershowitz: FBI Full Of ‘Republicans Who Hated Trump’ – Justin Caruso (DIERSEN: I should write a book about my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government who hated Republicans the most. Republican haters at GAO 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 an $19,203 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. Republican haters at 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. Republican haters at the Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968. Many of the aforesaid were also anti-draft avoiders, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

If I had not been taking job-related graduate courses, IRS might not have promoted me in 1972, 1973, or 1974. If I had not earned a job-related master’s degree in 1976 and if I had not earned a job-related professional certification in 1979, GAO would not have hired me in 1980. If I had not earned a job-related master’s degree in 1980; not earned job-related professional certifications in 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997; and not earned a job-related professional license in 1981 a) GAO might not have promoted me in 1986 and b) GAO might have gotten rid of me sooner than it did.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The woman who once accused Milton Township Assessor Jim Gumm of sexually harassing her agreed to settle a lawsuit Wednesday that could have made her liable for up to $1 million in damages. The settlement all but ends a legal battle that began with former township employee Carol Scholl accusing Gumm of sexual harassment. The township eventually settled that claim. Gumm then fired Scholl, and she filed a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for improper dismissal. Gumm soon filed his own lawsuit against several township officials and employees, including Scholl, claiming a clandestine effort to smear his name and have him booted from office.)

ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER
— Fear compromises health, well-being of immigrant families, survey finds – Anna Gorman (DIERSEN: Who has wanted you to be fearful? While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, my Democrat superiors always wanted me to fear that they would take stronger adverse actions against me. Were it not for federal civil service protections, a) the Post Office would NOT have hired me in 1966 or let me work there for almost 3 years, b) IRS would NOT have hired me in 1971 or let me work there for almost 9 years, c) IRS would NOT have promoted me in 1972, 1973, or 1974, d) GAO would NOT have hired me in 1980 or let me work there for almost 18 years, and e) GAO would NOT have promoted me in 1986. Adverse actions that my Democrat GAO superiors took against me included forcing me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, always ranking me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, not promoting me beyond GS-13, keeping me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forcing me to take an $18,847 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.
