NEW YORK TIMES
— What’s Your Ideal Community? The Answer Is Political – Emily Badger
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/04/upshot/whats-your-ideal-community-the-answer-is-political.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The American political map that has emerged over the last half-century, with blue cities and red beyond, is a product of both the ideological realignment of the two parties and geographic sorting among voters. It also raises a fascinating question about how our politics are shaped by where we live. Is it simply that people who are already liberal choose dense urban environments and conservatives choose more suburban living? Or do these places influence how we feel about government — and each other — in ways that make us more liberal or conservative? Political scientists, fortunately, cannot randomly assign people to cities, suburbs or rural outposts and then wait to see if their politics adapt. But their theories of why density might matter for partisanship add a provocative layer to how we think about the differences among us that are more often defined in an election year by education, income or race. A large Pew survey two years ago of American political life found that self-described liberals overwhelmingly said they’d prefer to live where the homes are smaller and closer together but where the amenities are within walking distance. Conservatives chose the opposite trade-off: big homes, spaced farther apart, but with schools and restaurants miles away. The question got at a pattern underlying politics today: Beyond our disagreements about taxes, welfare or health care, partisans also fundamentally favor different kinds of places.)

NEW YORK POST
— If you resent getting paid to nap, find another job – Editorial  (DIERSEN: The New York Post sides with the New York Department of Education against David Suker.  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and Illinois side with my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government against me.)
http://nypost.com/2016/11/07/if-you-resent-getting-paid-to-nap-find-another-job/
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: It’s hard not to feel a little sympathy for David Suker: He’s severely unhappy sitting around and even napping in libraries and lounges to “earn” his $94,000 salary. On the other hand, he’s free to find a real job — and the city Department of Education has every right to keep him out of the classroom. As Susan Edelman reported in Sunday’s Post, Suker is trying for a third answer — by suing to return to teaching. DOE actually tried to fire him, but the courts — and the United Federation of Teachers contract — prevented his termination. (He did have to pay a $7,000 fine.) Yet DOE was still unwilling to put him back in the classroom — whether because of his newsmaking confrontations with police as an Occupy Wall Street protester, or other information not made public. So it stuck him in the Absent Teacher Reserve, along with more than 1,300 other DOE staffers, at least 200 of them teachers — earning full pay and benefits but ineligible for overtime. A few ATR-dwellers actually make it back to real work — for example, teachers who take longer than usual to find placement at new schools after their old ones close. Yet most are simply warehoused because they can’t be fired, and no one’s willing to risk putting them in contact with kids. The system set up under the UFT contract makes it near-impossible to fire even serial gropers and other pervs. The real outrage is that they all remain on salary, courtesy of the taxpayers.)

CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN NEWS
— IS THIS THE LAST MAJORITY WHITE ELECTION? (DIERSEN: Since the 1960s, with Affirmative Action, with Diversity, and with Inclusion, Whites have given minorities a tremendous amount of preference. As minorities become the majority, how will minorities treat Whites?)
http://conservativerepublicannews.com/2016/11/07/is-this-the-last-majority-white-election/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to a WalletHub survey on the impact of minorities in America, 2016 is the last chance Republicans stand to win the White House… until 2060: “The study used two models based on population projections and matched to the overwhelming 65 percent minority turnout for President Obama in 2012 and the underwhelming 50 percent response for George W. Bush in 2004. The bottom line: In no presidential election from 2020-60 do the Republicans win. The closest the Republicans come is 2020 when the Democratic vote under the 2004 model reaches 50.48 percent, WalletHub said. The widest gap is projected for 2060, when the minority population will be its biggest, delivering the Democrats 58.8 percent of the vote.” The analysis pretty much states the obvious: that the growth of liberal-leaning minorities is outpacing the growth of both minority and white Republicans. It’s unclear, however, whether WalletHub’s survey accounted for voter fraud, or even acknowledges that it’s a real problem.)

— THOSE WHO CAN’T PRODUCE REGULATE THOSE WHO CAN – Seton Motley  (DIERSEN: I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years.  Motley would say that I became a federal employee and that I stayed a federal employee because I cannot produce. He would say that while I was a federal employee, I was a professional scold, a busybody, a bureaucrat, clueless, feckless, a know-nothing, and an ideological-tyrant. In my defense, in 1971 when I was 22 years old, if Oldsmobile had not withdrawn its job offer that I had accepted, I would have become an Oldsmobile employee and not a federal employee.  Once you become a federal employee, it is all but impossible to get a job in the private sector because private sector employers hate federal employees more than Motley does.  Further, in my defense, I passed the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations on my first attempt, I earned four other professional certifications, I became a licensed CPA, and I earned master’s degrees in business, accounting, and finance.)
http://conservativerepublicannews.com/2016/11/07/those-who-can-do-those-who-cant-regulate-those-who-can/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: And that’s where government comes in. Populated in far, far too many instances by people steeped not in the pursuit of excellence – but in its persecution. If these people were actually good at productive work – they would be doing productive work. But they’re not. So they’re professional scolds and busybodies – government bureaucrats lording over those doing productive work. Those who can – do. Those who can’t – regulate those who can. . . .Yet a bunch of anti-free-market, clueless, feckless government bureaucrats are pretending it is. So Schneiderman can continue his years-long effort to make Exxon’s life miserable. Here’s a thought: How about we rein in the know-nothing, ideological-tyrant bureaucrats? And let those skilled in the art of productive work – get back to engaging in productive work. Unhindered and un-harassed by the know-nothing, ideological-tyrant bureaucrats. Our economy, our nation – and the world – would be so much the better for it.)

— The Post-Familial Election  How the thinning out of families created fertile ground for Trump. – Ross Douthat  (DIERSEN: How is your family tree doing?  How many children did you and your spouse have, did your parents have, and did your grandparents have?  My wife and I gave up trying to have children, my parents had two children, my grandparents on my father’s side had two children and my grandparents on my mother’s side had four children.  My brother and my father’s sister never married and had no children.)
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/06/opinion/sunday/the-post-familial-election.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: So instead of widening, my family tree tapered, its branches thinned. And it may thin again, since so far the seven cousins in my generation have only three children. All of them are mine. This is a very normal Western family history. Everywhere across the developed world, families have grown more attenuated: fewer and later marriages, fewer and later-born children, fewer brothers and sisters and cousins, more people living for longer and longer stretches on their own. It’s a new model of social life, a “post-familial” revolution that’s unique to late modernity. For a while, conservatives have worried that this revolution is a boon to liberalism, to centralization and bureaucratic control — because as families thin people are more likely to look to politics for community and government for protection. This idea is borne out in voting patterns, where marriage and kids tend to predict Republican affiliation, and the single and divorced are often reliable Democratic partisans. The Obama White House’s “Life of Julia” ad campaign in 2012 — featuring a woman whose every choice was subsidized by the government from cradle to grave, with a lone child but no larger family or community in sight — seemed to many conservatives like a perfect confirmation of our fears: Here was liberalism explicitly pitching the state as a substitute for kith and kin. But while we worried about the liberal vision, our own ideological side was adapting to the family’s attenuation in darker ways — speaking not to singletons or single mothers, but to powerful post-familial anxieties among the middle-aged and old.)

LAS VEGAS REVIEW JOURNAL
— The real national embarrassment – Robert Samuelson
http://www.reviewjournal.com/the-real-national-embarrassment
(FROM THE ARTICLE: All this suggests an obvious immigration agenda.  First, we need to reduce illegal immigrants, both because illegality is bad in its own right and because the constant inflow frustrates assimilation. To further discourage illegal immigration, we should make E-Verify — a system for employers to check the immigration status of job applicants — mandatory for most businesses. We also need to legalize the vast majority of undocumented workers who have been here for years and don’t have a criminal record. Finally, we need to reform legal immigration so that it favors the entry of high-skilled workers, who aid the economy and assimilate more easily.)

http://www.nationalmemo.com/review-listen-liberals-political-rage-americas-dispossessed/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Five years ago, the sociologist Arlie Hochschild set out to better understand what she called the “deep story” of the mostly white, mostly downwardly mobile Americans who made up the fervent constituency of the Tea Party, and now of Donald Trump. These are the people who ostensibly vote against their economic self-interests, as Thomas Frank contended more than a decade ago in What’s the Matter with Kansas? They loathe a government that often redistributes and regulates in their favor.)

I was a union member for almost 12 years.  Should I write a book about those who hate unions and hate union members the most in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois?  Should I write a book about my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates who hated unions and hated union members the most?)

— Cracking The Code On Gen Z: Do As I Say, Not As I Do – Neale Godfrey  (DIERSEN: I started saving for my retirement in 1966 when I was 18 years old when I started earning credits toward a Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension.  Money Magazine reported in its February 1978 issue that as of the end of 1977, I had made $7,393 in CSRS contributions or 7% of the $105,614 that IRS had paid me since 1971. Subsequently, to get 3 years of full-time CSRS credit even though I had only worked part-time for the Park Forest Post Office, I paid CSRS 7% of what the Post Office paid me 1966-1969 plus interest.)

http://www.forbes.com/sites/nealegodfrey/2016/11/06/cracking-the-code-on-gen-z-do-as-i-say-not-as-i-do/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Baby Boomers Blew It  We Baby Boomers did fail when planning for our financial future, but part of the problem is that our future is being prolonged. We are living longer and therefore outliving our resources. In 1900, the average lifespan was 47 years. Today, AARP reports that a 65-year old is expected to be able to blow out their birthday candles at 85 years of age. Wow, get out and enjoy your retirement. This is great news unless you happen to be an average American, between the age of 55 and 64, who has only accrued $104,000 in retirement savings, according to the June 2015 Government Accountability Office. To sum this up, a longer life span means that 47 percent of the oldest Baby Boomers are at risk of not having enough money for retirement, as reported by Employee Benefit Research Institute. Options are scary. Keep working? Live with the kids? Your choices get limited. We Baby Boomers have not set a great example for the Gen Z’ers who are just getting out of school, entering the workforce and trying to design their own financial futures.)

— GOP congressman threatens hearing to ‘explore network media bias’ – Callum Borchers  (DIERSEN: As everyone knows, virtually everyone in the paid media is an operative or a dupe for the Democrat Party.)
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/11/04/gop-congressman-threatens-hearing-on-medias-surreptitious-propaganda/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) said in a letter to television executives on Friday that “national network news has devolved from fact-based journalism to surreptitious propaganda,” and he raised the specter of a congressional hearing to “explore network media bias in coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign.”  Cramer’s timing is a bit odd. The election is Tuesday, meaning that any such hearing would come too late to affect coverage of the race (although, of course, the prospect of such a hearing is being raised in the campaign homestretch). It is possible that Cramer, a strong supporter of Donald Trump, is merely throwing a symbolic grenade at a press corps that the Republican nominee derides on a daily basis. Cramer does not have a hearing on the books; his letter indicated that he has not even requested one. He simply said that he plans to ask for a hearing.)

ATLANTIC SENTINEL
— Prevalence, Impact and Assimilation of German Americans  German Americans have been something of a silent majority, despite their significant contributions to the culture. – Nick Ottens (DIERSEN: What is your national origin?  During the 1840s and 1850s, all my ancestors immigrated to northeast Illinois from what is now Germany.  Of course, obviously, needless-to-say, and without question, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used that against me. In my defense, I stress that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans during WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII, and that my father would have fought the Germans during WWII if he had not been 4-F.  Further, according to
http://dna.ancestry.com, my ancestry is 33% Europe West, 28% Scandinavia, 24% Great Britain, 11% Ireland, 2% Europe East, 1% Finland/Northwest Russia, and 1% Italy/Greece.)
http://atlanticsentinel.com/2016/11/prevalence-impact-and-assimilation-of-german-americans/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: German Americans are the largest ancestry group in the United States. Some 46 million Americans, comprising 14 percent of the population, claim German roots. Germans have been part of American history almost from the start. The first German immigrants settled in rural Pennsylvania and upstate New York. Many were Protestants who had made the journey to the New World from predominantly Catholic parts of Central Europe. A second, larger immigration wave would come in the nineteenth century, when around seven million Germans arrived, doubling the population of the United States at the time. Many of them established farms in the Midwest, leading to a heavy concentration of German Americans in states like Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Dakotas. Impact  German Protestants and Jews tended to vote Republican; most Catholics were Democrats. What united them was opposition to slavery and Prohibition and in general a mistrust of Southern populists and New England puritans alike. Germans played an important role in the early American labor and socialist movements, which were strongest in those Midwestern states that had large German minorities. Milwaukee, for example, was the only major city in America with socialist mayors for a long time. German contributions to American culture include beer, hot dogs, Christmas trees and kindergarten (literally, “garden for children”). Companies such as Boeing, Goldman Sachs, Heinz, Kraft Foods, Lehman Brothers and Levi’s were all started by Germans. Prejudice  There had been little prejudice against German until the United States entered World War I on the Allied side in 1917. Former president Theodore Roosevelt denounced “hyphenated Americanism”. Anti-German bigotry became widespread. A German minister was tarred and feathered in Minnesota after he was overheard praying in his native language with a dying woman. A man suspected of spying for the Germans was lynched in Collinsville, Illinois. The Justice Department was no help. It drew up a list of all German aliens in the country, counting some 480,000. More than 4,000 of them were incarcerated until the hostilities in Europe ended a year later. Ordinary Germans responded by speaking English in public and anglicizing their names: Koenig became King, Müller became Miller, Schmidt became Smith. The German American experience during the Second World War was mixed. Nearly 11,000 German citizens were interned and some 300,000 German-born residents were restricted in their travel and property rights. But President Franklin D. Roosevelt — Theodore’s nephew — also sought out German Americans for top war posts, including General Dwight D. Eisenhower, who spearheaded the Allied war effort in Europe, and Admiral Chester Nimitz, who was the American naval commander in the Pacific. German speakers were recruited as translators and spies. Very few sympathized with the Nazis. Assimilation  Despite their numerical preponderance, German Americans have been something of a silent majority throughout American history. Partly that’s because they themselves deemphasized their Germanness in the first half of the twentieth century. Barely any German speakers remain. Many first-generation German immigrants were also poor, uneducated farmers, who spread out across the Midwest, unlike, say, more middle-class Irishmen and Italians, many of whom settled in the big cities of the Northeast where they could more easily become a political force. Whether it is in spite or because of this process of assimilation, German Americans now do better than most ethnicities on many metrics. They are more likely to have college degrees and less likely to be unemployed. Their median household income is 18 percent above the national norm. Well-known German Americans include former House speaker John Boehner, former secretary of state Henry Kissinger, the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the oil magnate John D. Rockefeller and the actress Meryl Streep — as well as the current Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump.)

— Is Fox News the only suitor for Megyn Kelly? (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes hint/imply/argue/shout that the more money that you are paid, the more credibility that you are.  They shout that because I am not paid any money to serve as your GOPUSA Illinois Editor, I have no credibility. According to this article, Fox News as willing to meet Kelly’s asking price of a $20 million annual salary.  I should ask my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes how much money are they are paid a year and who pays them.)
http://www.gopusa.com/?p=16699
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The much expected bidding war for the services of Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly has apparently fizzled, due in part to Rupert Murdoch’s indication last week that he wants to re-sign the star anchor and was willing to meet her asking price of a $20 million annual salary. According to Vanity Fair, CNN, ABC and CBS are passing on the opportunity to hire Kelly: “One CNN insider explained, ‘of course we would love to have her,’ before noting that poaching Kelly, given the likely cost of her contract, ‘is not something we are seriously considering.’ Instead, this person elaborated, CNN is investing more in documentary-style programming after the election. ‘I don’t believe anyone is pursuing her other than Fox at this point,’ said one ABC insider. A source close to CBS said that they are not making an offer, either. (The person close to Kelly noted that discussions with rival executives were ongoing.)” If that’s true, that really only leaves NBC and MSNBC as potential suitors. But in this era of tight budgets it’s unlikely they would be willing to cough up the kind of money that Kelly wants. Kelly has been under fire from conservatives ever since her tough questioning of Donald Trump at the first GOP presidential primary debate last year. Her ongoing squabbles with the nominee have sent viewers elsewhere, leading to some slippage in her ratings.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The City Council’s Progressive Caucus is demanding that an ordinance creating Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s $100 million “Catalyst Fund” include an ironclad guarantee that the money will be invested in neighborhoods truly in need. The all-purpose revenue ordinance that Emanuel introduced at Tuesday’s City Council meeting falls far short of that demand. It states that “priority would be given to investment funds” that put their money into projects “located in census tracts eligible for Community Reinvestment Act credit.”)

My father is the first Republican who’s gone out and said, ‘Listen, what’s happened to the African-American community is horrible and I’m going to take care of it.'”)

— When It Comes to Success, Age Really Is Just a Number – BENEDICT CAREY  (DIERSEN: Non-veteran White males who are seeking a job with the federal government should be advised that with only rare exceptions, a) the longer that you are a federal employee, the less likely that private sector employers will hire you, b) your career will be wasted and you will be gotten rid of if you do not make GS-13 ($92,632) by age 25, GS-14 ($109,463) by age 30, GS-15 ($128,759) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service ($160,300) by age 40, c) you will be expected to help your superiors and supervisors get rid of their employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran, and d) virtually everyone despises if not hates federal employees, former federal employees, and federal retirees.)

BOSTON GLOBE
— Influencing law firm bonuses  The politics of bonus pay – Kevin Lewis  (DIERSEN: While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, virtually all my bosses were Democrats. Further, during my last 8 years, my boss’s boss was a female Democrat, and during my last 4 years, my boss was a female Democrat.  To get her to do their dirty work, my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates stressed to her a) that while she was a liberal Democrat, I was a conservative Republican, b) that while she was Jewish, I was Missouri Synod Lutheran, c) that while she was Russian national origin, I was German national origin, d) that while her ancestors were recent immigrants, my ancestors had been in America since the 1840s, e) that while she was younger, I was older, f) that while she had children to worry about, I did not, g) that I opposed gender based preference giving, h) that I opposed age discrimination, i) that I never made GS-14, j) that etc.)
http://www.bostonglobe.com/ideas/2016/11/03/law-firm-bonuses-influenced-personal-politics/39GjiHF8pXQkWLR0vzCvdJ/story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: BEFORE YOU AGREE to work somewhere, check the boss’s political donations. Business school professors at Penn State analyzed confidential data from a large law firm and found that bonus pay for male associates, relative to other associates of the same seniority, grew significantly faster than bonus pay for female associates the more conservative their supervising partners were (as measured by political donations). This was true even controlling for the associate’s gender, race, parental status, billable hours, and law-school ranking; the age, gender, and race of supervising partners; and the political orientation of other partners and the department head.)

THE ATLANTIC
— One Way to Ensure Equal Pay for Men and Women  The private sector doesn’t compensate women fairly. Can it learn anything from the federal hiring process? – ALEXIA FERNANDEZ CAMPBELL  (DIERSEN: In 1989, the Democrats who ran GAO started their pay-for-performance system a) to retain and to promote their employees who were Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger and b) to get rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.  Of course, obviously, needless-to-say, without question, under that system, my Democrat GAO superiors always ranked me in the lower half of my coworkers and never gave me any bonuses.)
http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2016/11/how-the-government-mostly-closed-its-gender-pay-gap/506084/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: When employers come up with salaries, there are two different ways they think about how much a worker should earn. Jacque Simon, the public policy director for the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), a union, puts it this way: Should a salary be tied to the job itself, or to the individual hired to fill it? In the first scenario, employers decide what they are willing to pay for someone to carry out a certain role. In the second, the employer focuses more on the individual and what they are worth to an organization. Federal employers  fit into the first category, using a rigid pay scale similar to ones favored by labor unions. Labor unions view structured pay scales as a means of preventing discrimination based on gender, as well as age, race, and other categories. “Once you give supervisors in the federal government the ability to vary pay by individual, rather than job, they are going to reward the people they like the best,” says Simon. In the federal government, most white-collar jobs are governed by the General Schedule, which includes 15 general pay levels that vary based on the experience, skills, and education needed for a position. Each job opening is posted at one of these levels, so candidates can only negotiate within the minimum or maximum pay range (there are 10 steps within each level). The pay system, which was launched 1949, was designed to ensure that people with the same skills got paid the same salaries. Limiting salary negotiations benefits women because research shows that they are less likely to negotiate salaries, and are more likely to be penalized if they do. Also, giving hiring managers more discretion may introduce inadvertent biases when putting together an offer. This has been effective, but it still leaves room for some discretion, not all of it good. For example, some federal agencies base salary offers on what an applicant made at his or her previous job, which contributes to disparities in pay, according to the Office of Personnel Management, the federal agency that oversees hiring and payroll. So, this year, the office urged agencies to consider an applicant’s previous salary as only one of many factors in drawing up offers, because that number may be, as is often the case for female job candidates who left the workforce for several years, artificially depressed. (Though senior government executives are not paid within the General Schedule system, their pay scale is somewhat a continuation of it, with more discretion in pay negotiations.)

DAILY HERALD
— MAY 17, 2011 FLASHBACK: Gresk: Get Hubble on tax rolls
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20110517/news/705189928/
— Moving toward better balance of worker benefits, taxpayer affordability – Editorial  (DIERSEN: Do you want government to be a “model employer?”  What is your attitude toward government employees and toward government retirees?  Are/were you a government employee?  I was a federal employee for almost 30 years.  Are you a government retiree?  I have been a federal retiree for more than 19 years. Many millions have not and will not seek a job with the federal government a) because the pay and benefits are terrible, b) because the advancement opportunities are terrible, c) because they lack required education, work experience, professional certifications, and/or professional licenses, d) because they cannot pass an employment examination, e) because they cannot pass a background investigation, f) because they cannot pass a physical examination, g) because they cannot take the demonization, denigration, and condemnation that comes with being a federal employee or federal retiree, and/or h) because they are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran and they know that the federal government discriminates against its employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20161102/discuss/161109662/
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: The public pension crisis in Illinois is a runaway train. So when we see someone actually try to apply the brakes, we take notice. The DuPage County Forest Preserve District this week approved a sweeping series of changes to its employee pay policies that leaders predict will save the county $6 million over the next 20 years. That might not seem like a lot of money, but it’s not chump change. What it is an important step in the right direction. Just think of how this could mushroom if similar steps were taken in many of the other 6,900-plus taxing bodies in Illinois. A story today by staff writer Robert Sanchez lays out how forest preserve commissioners have decided to ratchet down an established bonus program and also put the brakes on lump-sum payouts to qualifying or retiring employees for unused sick time. “These changes will curb long-term spending, especially in the area of pension costs,” Commissioner Jeff Redick said, “and allow us to responsibly serve the taxpayers and both our current and future employees.” The district for years has handed out longevity-based bonuses to retiring or qualifying employees that averaged $15,000 to $20,000. You don’t find that in a lot of private-sector jobs. Not anymore. Nor do you find many companies that still — if ever — reimburse employees for unused sick time. The district isn’t going to take money from people already expecting it. Like companies that have eliminated their 401(k) contributions in lean times, those employees who already are in the bonus program — called a “retention incentive” program — will still get bonuses, but starting Jan. 1 they no longer will grow. Those who haven’t yet qualified for the bonus program never will. The district also is putting limits on lump-sum payments for sick days accrued after the start of next year. What is even more important is that the forest preserve district has decided to eliminate both the bonus and sick time payback from the calculation of pensions. That in itself is expected to save $4.5 million in pension liability over the next 20 years. In a time when pension payments in some cases are reaching a tipping point with operational costs for governmental bodies, it’s important to look toward ways in which the private sector has managed to stay afloat in tough financial times. Other taxing bodies should follow this example.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: GOP nominee Donald Trump singled out NBC News reporter Katy Tur on Wednesday during a rally in Florida, continuing to taunt reporters covering his campaign. Tur has been embedded with the Trump campaign, following the candidate throughout the presidential race. Trump in the past has called out Tur publicly by name, and has referred to her as “Little Katy, third-rate journalist.” During his usual takedown of the “dishonest media” in Miami on Wednesday, Trump called out the press  – and specifically Tur – for being biased and not reporting fairly on his campaign. “We have massive crowds. They’re something happening. They’re not reporting it. Katy, you’re not reporting it, Katy.” Trump said to cheers. “But there’s something  happening, Katy. There’s something happening, Katy.” CNN host Wolf Blitzer last week asked Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway to talk to the Republican nominee about singling out reporters, especially those embedded with the campaign, citing safety concerns. “He points to them, he sort of eggs the crowd on to go after them,” Blitzer said. “There are a lot of young journalists. He shouldn’t be doing that.” Conway appeared on Blitzer’s CNN show later Wednesday and defended Trump, saying he didn’t intend to suggest that anyone be mean to Tur or to attack her. “After he did that . . . she was harassed by a lot of the people over there,” Blitzer said. “The last time we spoke, you told me you shared my concerns about the singling out of these embeds … You said you would talk to him. How did that conversation go?” “The conversation was very productive and I’ve also talked to NBC News today,” Conway said. “Look, we want fair coverage and we wan’t everybody to be safe at our rallies. I don’t appreciate a lot of the threats I get either from people who I guess are worried that we may actually win this thing.” After Trump taunted Tur, other journalists tweeted #ImWithTur in support of the NBC News reporter. Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims – 1.6 billion members of an entire religion – from entering the U.S.)

I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981. I became a licensed CPA in 1981, a Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, a Certified Government Financial Manager in 1994, Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and a Forensic Accountant in 1997.  I earned a bachelor’s degree in management in 1970, an MBA in 1976, a master’s degree in accounting in 1980, and a master’s degree in financial markets and trading in 1997.  I served on the Executive Committee of the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter 1983-1996.)
http://thesouthern.com/news/opinion/mailbag/voice-of-the-reader-qualified-for-comptroller/article_5153c62c-3846-58d4-a74a-31557ec1078f.html
(FROM THE LETTER: In the midst of the national campaign, we must not forget the elections closer to home that impact us. One such office is that of the state comptroller. This is a position of great importance given the mismanagement and financial state we are in. The comptroller is in essence the state’s head accountant, and neither of the major parties candidates running have any accounting experience. In fact, the state of Illinois has never had an accountant elected to this office. This year, that could change. The most qualified candidate is Libertarian Claire Ball. She has real world experience with both a bachelors and masters degree in accounting, and has received her CPA. Claire Ball has presented a comprehensive plan for accountability and transparency for the office. Claire Ball has also called attention to the payments of lobbyists ahead of social services that close by the day. What Claire Ball won’t be, is beholden to a party instead of the people. She has neither Rauner or Madigan to answer to. Claire Ball can perform arithmetic that the incumbent recently had difficulty with. Claire Ball will also not be using the office as a stepping stone as have the two major parties done in the past. This Nov. 8, vote for the most qualified and capable candidate. The state of Illinois’ finances can not continue under the tenure of the parties who have so badly damaged it. Vote for Libertarian Claire Ball.)

 

STAR COURIER
— Sen. Weaver named to Advisory Council on At-Risk Students  (DIERSEN: Were you an at-risk student? I was not thanks to my outstanding parents who sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961, to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod, and to Crete-Monee High School 1962-1966.  They provided me with room and board in their home in Crete 1966-1968 while I attended UIC, weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and the summer of 1969.)
http://www.starcourier.com/news/20161101/sen-weaver-named-to-advisory-council-on-at-risk-students
(FROM THE ARTICLE: State Sen. Chuck Weaver (R-Peoria) has been appointed to the Illinois General Assembly’s Advisory Council on At Risk Students, a panel charged with finding ways to improve educational opportunities and access for disadvantaged students. “A student’s education lays the foundation for the future success in life, which is why it’s so important that we make sure all of our students have the best possible access to education,” said Senator Weaver. “This council will allow us to continually work to find new ways to help our most at-risk students succeed.” The Advisory Council on At Risk Students is made up of 20 members, most members are education and human service professionals. The Republican leader in the Senate was allowed to select one person to serve on the council and she selected Senator Weaver. The council will file an annual report with the General Assembly to recommend changes to be implemented. Sen. Weaver, whose district includes the Kewanee area, has long worked as an advocate for students and disadvantaged children, as a past president of the Youth Farm in Peoria where he served on the board for 28 years. He was involved in merging Youth Farm with the Childrens Home, one of Illinois’ premier providers for at risk children. “We have some serious challenges to face with our educational system, but I’m truly excited at the opportunity to work toward ensuring a quality education for every student,” said Weaver.)

— University of Texas student government wants to ‘disband’ Young Conservatives for ‘hate-filled’ bake sale  (DIERSEN: Under the Democrats and under the RINOs, ever-increasingly, you are viciously demonized, denigrated, and condemned if you do not promote Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion, that is, if you do not promote discrimination against Whites and against men.)
http://www.thecollegefix.com/post/29750/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Administration: Sorry, it’s ‘protected speech’  The University of Texas-Austin has pledged to ignore demands from student officials to “disband” a conservative student group following its satirical “affirmative action bake sale” last week. Several Student Government (SG) representatives filed a resolution against Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) that also called for the administration to punish and even expel students who commit “future incidents of bias.” Without referring to the resolution, YCT sent a legal threat letter to UT President Gregory Fenves. It said the group would sue UT if it took “punitive action” against YCT for its speech, citing a federal law that allows lawsuits against public officials for retaliating against or chilling protected speech. A university spokesman told The College Fix in an email Tuesday night that won’t happen, because UT “does not and will not take action against an organization for protected speech.” ‘More of a movement’ than actual legislation  At an SG assembly meeting Tuesday night, shortly after the university said it wouldn’t punish YCT, representatives nonetheless voted to “fast track” the resolution, known as AR-15, The Daily Texan reported. Debate was extended at the unusually lengthy meeting, according to the Daily. President Kevin Helgren said YCT’s bake sale was “hate-filled” but emphasized that the university could choose to ignore an approved resolution. Co-author and co-sponsor Priya Suri said the resolution was “more of a movement and a statement that we stand in solidarity with people of color and people who were emotionally affected” by the bake sale. The outcry against YCT’s bake sale started with a student petition that alleged the cheeky demonstration against racial preferences – which was partly led by a black student – was a “hate crime.” It had 860 signatures as of Tuesday night. The new petition was followed by the SG resolution, which has seven sponsors and 12 authors. Two authors work in the Multicultural Engagement Center, though neither is listed as full-time staff – Cameron Maxwell, director of external relations for African American Affairs, and Alejandrina Guzman, director of Latino Leadership Summit for Latino Community Affairs. It’s not the first petition to try to kill YCT at UT for a political demonstration – three years ago, more than 5,000 people signed a similar petition. The resolution is dripping with contempt for what it characterizes as UT’s hands-off approach to offensive campus speech. It cites the bake sale; a Feb. 20 incident where white UT students allegedly threw bottles and yelled a racial slur at a black student; Phi Gamma Delta’s 2015 “border patrol” party, which was investigated by the dean of students; and the cause of the prior petition, YCT’s planned “Catch an Illegal Immigrant” game (canceled due to “safety concerns“), among other incidents. The resolution says UT took “no punitive action” against “identifiable university-associated perpetrators” in most of the incidents. It suggests that UT should punish students when their actions provoke “large-scale protests and outrage.”)

http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/11/02/how-republicans-see-the-gop-on-the-eve-of-the-2016-election/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 70% of Republicans think their party is divided; Most Republicans think Trump represents the GOP’s “core principles;” “Negative voting” is higher for Trump than it was for past GOP candidates; GOP voters who supported Trump in the primaries and those who backed one of his rivals differ sharply in their views of him; and As Election Day nears, more Republicans feel favorably toward their party.)
