— AUGUST 24, 2003 FLASHBACK: The New Couples Next Door, Gay and Straight – Kate Zernike (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, you are demonized, denigrated, and condemned if you do not promote LGBTQ activity. According to City-Data at http://www.city-data.com/city/Wheaton-Illinois.html, for Wheaton: “Likely homosexual households (counted as self-reported same-sex unmarried-partner households) Lesbian couples: 0.2% of all households Gay men: 0.2% of all households” Those who promote LGBTQ activity in Wheaton stress “OneWheaton.” SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OneWheaton)
https://www.nytimes.com/2003/08/24/us/the-new-couples-next-door-gay-and-straight.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mark Demich and Kevin Hengst, the couple across the street, are not actually married. Still, in the seven years they have lived in this Chicago suburb they have become like the Buckinghams, the Therrons, the Siconolfis — just another young family in the neighborhood, socializing porch to porch on summer evenings. Choosing the suburbs over the city, Mr. Demich and Mr. Hengst feared they would be The Gay Couple. But even in Wheaton — the home of an evangelical Christian college that until last year prohibited drinking and dancing, the seat of a reliably Republican county — they have found plenty of company. Sixty gay men and lesbians turned out for a wine-tasting a few weeks ago. About 30 played softball at a local park on a recent Saturday. . .In Wheaton, Mr. Demich, 42, said he liked the diversity. ”Of families,” he explained, after a brief pause. ”As opposed to city culture, where everything is around gay life, gay events. That’s not really the way America lives.” When he and Mr. Hengst decided to move to the suburbs, they told their real estate agent, ”Anything but Wheaton,” knowing its conservative reputation. Then they found the perfect house. They hung out a Gay Pride flag, and the neighbors invited them to a block party. The couple said they would bring fruit salad. ”Everyone broke out laughing,” Mr. Weinberg, a contractor, recalled. ”They were making fun of it, which went over well.” Neighborhood children have confronted the couple with questions: Do you two sleep together? Do you have wives? Their parents cringe, but also say they consider themselves, and their children, fortunate. ”Growing up in a good Catholic family, I didn’t even know about anything like this,” Ms. Weinberg said. ”It wasn’t thrown in front of me. These kids, if they don’t see it now, they’re going to see it soon. Living on a block like this is more the real world.” A few blocks over the train tracks, Ladd McClurg and Brad Ogilvie had similar concerns about moving to Wheaton when Mr. Ogilvie accepted a job in town. Mr. McClurg, who grew up in the Mormon faith, being taught that gays were sinners, said he arrived with ”almost a visceral disdain” for Wheaton’s many churches and their members. ”I learned to discover they’re not all bigoted,” Mr. McClurg said. ”There are a lot more variations on the middle out here than I was willing to give credit for.” Still, gays here say they step carefully to avoid causing offense. Betty Burns and Lisa Rechkemmer say they would never hold hands or hang out a pride flag for fear of upsetting their good relations with the neighbors. Mr. Ogilvie and Mr. McClurg display the flag, but resist the urge to hold hands unless they visit the city. One lesbian in Wheaton talked about how accepting her neighbors were, but did not want to be identified by name because she feared the kind of hate calls she and her partner received when they moved in two years ago. Mr. Demich and Mr. Hengst had to go to six or seven churches before they found one that did not preach that homosexuality is a sin. The church they chose, St. Paul Lutheran, had declared itself ”open and affirming” to gays five years ago, but only after a struggle. The decision was prompted not by gay parishioners — there were none at the time — but by a young man who had been baptized and confirmed in the church who died of AIDS. ”It lifted the issue,” said Marianne Avery, a member of the church council that debated the change. ”It was, ‘This is our children, this is not about letting someone in.’ ” Still, a handful of members left. ”What if they show up in drag?” the Rev. Melody Eastman, the pastor, recalled one woman asking.)

Further, I fully disclose my demographics: Trump supporter, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), patriotic, White, male, old (born in 1948), non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, etc.) 
https://thehill.com/opinion/technology/460595-liberals-haunted-by-social-media-tactics-they-use-against-the-right
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The reason why liberal editors are so distraught that independent conservative journalists are publishing evidence of the racist, anti-Semitic, and otherwise vile sentiments expressed by their supposedly “objective” employees comes down — as it usually does — to power. Many journalists are in the profession not to inform the public, but to gain the power to destroy people who question them — and they don’t like those tactics being turned against them. “[U]sing journalistic techniques to target journalists and news organizations … is fundamentally different from the well-established role of the news media in scrutinizing people in positions of power,” the Times wrote in its article — which was of course labeled “news,” not “opinion.”)

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/09/10/san-francisco-nra-domestic-terrorist-organization-lawsuit/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “San Francisco’s actions pose a nonfrivolous constitutional threat,” the lawsuit argues. “Defendants are intent on targeting the NRA for its advocacy, chilling the NRA’s and its members’ rights of free speech and association under the First Amendment, all with an eye to silence the NRA from the debate on Second Amendment rights.” . . . “This action is an assault on all advocacy organizations across the country,” NRA lawyer William A. Brewer III said in a statement. “Fortunately, the NRA, like all U.S. citizens, is protected by the First Amendment.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Massachusetts Senator Warren has proposed that the wealthiest 75,000 households pay an annual tax of 2% on each dollar of their net worth above $50 million. It would rise to 3% on every dollar above $1 billion. She has said this would combat rising inequality. Critics have charged that the tax would be hard to administer and easy to avoid. They’ve also questioned its constitutionality.)

— Elements of Libel and Slander
https://injury.findlaw.com/torts-and-personal-injuries/elements-of-libel-and-slander.html
(FROM THE POSTING: Defamatory Statements One essential element in any defamation action is that the defendant knowingly or negligently published something defamatory about the plaintiff. A communication may be considered defamatory “if it tends so to harm the reputation of another as to lower him in the estimation of the community or to deter third persons from associating with him,” according to the American Restatement of Torts (or “The Restatement”). Examples of defamatory statements are virtually limitless and may include any of the following: . . . A communication that exposes a plaintiff to ridicule A communication that reflects negatively on the plaintiff’s character, morality, or integrity . . . A communication that suggests that the plaintiff suffers from a physical or mental defect that would cause others to refrain from associating with the plaintiff)

https://blogs.findlaw.com/blotter/2012/09/3-crimes-for-threatening-a-politician.html

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ever think of threatening a politician? With the endless loop of commercials and phone calls, it’s only our sanity and knowledge that threatening a politician may be a crime that stops most of us from doing so. But every year, a few people do lose it and lash out with threats and actions against a politician or political candidate.)

— Sensitivity in teaching LGBTQ and history – William Juneau, Huntley
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20190909/sensitivity-in-teaching-lgbtq-and-history
(FROM THE LETTER: Same sex marriages are legal and adoptions are now permitted. “Transing” from one gender to another is unusual no matter how you cut it. There is no reason for any hostility to gays and for those that have changed genders, but endorsing and even encouraging it is objectionable to many who have different views and believe strongly in the traditional family with one mom and one dad. There are celebs and great poets and philosophers who have been gay and have made contributions to society, no doubt about it. But the foundations for their good work had nothing to do with their sexual orientation.)

ATLANTIC
— Why Conservatives Are Turning Against Higher Education College isn’t providing an effective engine of upward mobility for most Americans. – Reihan Salam
https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/08/higher-education-has-become-increasingly-partisan/596407/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: At a recent gathering of conservatives, for example, Hawley drew a straight line from the declining economic prospects of non-college-educated workers to a number of social maladies. “Just about any American worker without a four-year college degree will have a hard time in the cosmopolitan economy. Maybe that’s one reason why marriage rates among working-class Americans are falling, why birth rates are falling, why life expectancy is falling. All the while, an epidemic of suicide and drug addiction ravages every sector, every age group, every geography of the working class.” This divergence of the economic prospects of the college-educated and non-college-educated is hardly a new development. What is new, though, is the growing interest among Republican lawmakers, Hawley included, in doing something about it legislatively. One implication of the senator’s remarks is that Congress ought to be more solicitous of the interests of the non-college-educated, and to that end the senator recently introduced legislation that, according to The Hill, would allow low-income students to use federal dollars currently earmarked for higher education to pursue vocational training. Leaving aside the merits of Hawley’s proposal, there is reason to believe that it is good politics, or rather good Republican politics. As the Pew Research Center finds in a new survey, there’s been a sharp increase in dissatisfaction with America’s colleges and universities among Republicans in recent years, and it makes perfect sense for right-of-center policy makers to want to do something about it. Consider the changing composition of America’s major-party coalitions. Shortly after the 2018 midterms, Adam Harris observed that the Trump presidency was accelerating the “diploma divide,” which refers to the starkly different voting patterns of college-educated white voters and those without a degree, a split that is unique to whites. In the midterms, Republicans did 16 points better among whites without a college degree, while securing the votes of only 45 percent of their college-educated counterparts. In contrast, when George H. W. Bush defeated Michael Dukakis in 1988, he did so in part by winning college-educated white voters by 20 points. Another factor in the diploma divide is the gender gap in college attendance and completion. In the 1980s, women began graduating from college in higher numbers than men, and since then, their advantage has only widened. Today, you have to go up to the 60-and-over demographic before you find men outnumbering women among college graduates. The diploma divide has also had implications for partisan geography. When Republicans lost the House in 2006, half of their vulnerable seats were in districts that had more college graduates than the national average; that number was 70 percent for the 2018 midterms.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Whether weed-infused drinks are going to catch on the way vape pens, edibles, and traditional flower have is still up for debate, but your favorite beer companies are still most likely looking over their shoulders. And that’s because they have a legitimate concern that the cannabis industry may lure consumers away from alcohol. At “Cannabis In The Booze Industry,” a conference during Bar Convent Brooklyn, a trade show for the beverage industry in June 2019, leaders from both the cannabis and alcohol industries gathered to talk about how one affects the other. All signs are clear that the rapidly growing cannabis sector is a significant threat to the alcoholic beverage industry, particularly for beer drinking consumers. Larger alcoholic beverage distributors, including Constellation Brands, Molson Coors, and Heineken, have already invested heavily in cannabis in an effort to ride the wave rather than be washed away in a potential tsunami of non-alcoholic canna-drinks. Or, as studies like research from the University of Georgia and Syracuse University in New York are finding, legalization of marijuana could mean interest in — and consumption of — alcohol experiences a corresponding decline. . . .3). Bars Are Ready to Get Onboard With the inclusion of cannabis-infused drinks, bars stand to attract consumers who would want to socialize or recreationally indulge while avoiding alcohol. These beverages could offer options to widen bars’ customer base to include people who don’t want to drink alcohol. Since there’s a chill-factor to the beverages, whether they’re THC- or cannabidiol (CBD)-infused, makes them stand out from current non-alcoholic options.)

FEDERAL NEWS NETWORK
— Elections and federal workers – the good and the bad – Jeff Neal (DIERSEN: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. Democrats are nasty. While I worked for the Democrats who ran GAO’s Chicago office 1980-1997, my Democrat coworkers and subordinates a) frequently asked me questions to confirm that I was Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), conservative, patriotic, Republican, old (born in 1948), non-poor, childless, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, Corvette owner, former union member for almost 12 years, and that my ancestors have been in America since 1844 and b) stressed the aforesaid negative information to my Democrat superiors and supervisors. They also stressed that my Democrat IRS superiors a) had not promoted me beyond GS-12, b) disallowed my education deductions in 1978, c) got rid of my mentor in 1975, and d) disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. They also stressed that my Democrat Post Office superiors had forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Having election discussions at work is another risk you should avoid. Those conversations may start innocently enough, but given the level of emotion that seems to accompany everything these days, it is better to avoid getting into them at all. An innocent conversation with a colleague may turn into a Hatch Act complaint filed with the Office of Special Counsel, or into a fight, or a damaged working relationship that persists for years. You are unlikely to convert your coworkers to your side, so it is far better to keep politics out of work entirely.)

NAPERVILLE PATCH
— OUTSTANDING: Naperville Opts Out Of Recreational Marijuana Sales  The council voted 6 to 3 in favor of opting out of recreational cannabis sales. – Lisa Marie Farver (DIERSEN: At Wheaton’s City Council meeting yesterday evening, Lynn Robbins was appointed to fill Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy and I again urged Wheaton to ban the sale of recreational marijuana.)
https://patch.com/illinois/naperville/naperville-opts-out-recreational-marijuana-sales
(FROM THE ARTICLE: After weeks of debate, comments from residents, and anti-cannabis rallies, the Naperville City Council voted to opt out of recreational cannabis sales Tuesday. The City Council meeting brought close to 250 residents out to share their comments about the issue, which ended in a 6-3 vote in favor of opting out. . .The topic of recreational cannabis was discussed for more than three hours at Tuesday’s meeting, which was filled with dozens of residents sporting bright orange “Opt Out Naperville” t-shirts and pins. . .After the public comment portion of the meeting, City Council members had a chance to sound off on the issue. Council member Kevin Coyne said, “I think it’s a very clear and easy decision tonight.” He added that neighboring cities Wheaton and Bolingbrook will likely opt out and that he wanted to prevent Naperville from becoming the “marijuana capital of DuPage County.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The decision to opt out of recreational pot sales came several hours after hundreds of people began packing the Naperville City Council chambers as residents and non-residents waited their turn to comment on the issue of whether to allow the retail sale of pot. The discussion on marijuana sales brought 238 people to sign up for public comment on the topic — a vast majority speaking in favor of opting out while wearing white and orange “opt out” shirts. Over the past couple weeks, the group was organized to rally and lobby city council members to keep recreational cannabis dispensaries out of Naperville. At the same time, residents in support of retail marijuana sales have circulated a survey on the issue. People who asked city council to opt out Tuesday night are concerned recreational pot dispensaries would lead to increased availability to children and would hurt the “family friendly” brand of Naperville.)

As about 1.2 million mostly low-skilled legal immigrants are admitted to the U.S. every year to take primarily low-wage jobs, an underclass of servants for the wealthy has boomed over the last decade compared with overall job growth.)

She was offered a job as a French teacher at Sacred Heart-Griffin, a Catholic high school in Springfield, Illinois. White, who is herself not a Catholic, tells NewNowNext she went into the interview with nerves, because she “kind of figured that since it was a Catholic school, it wouldn’t be the most inclusive space, obviously.”)
