WALL STREET JOURNAL
— Democrats and Republicans Aren’t Just Divided. They Live in Different Worlds. The two parties represent radically different slices of the American economy.- Aaron Zitner, Dante Chinni, Jessica Wang, and Danny Dougherty (DIERSEN: Who do you have little in common with? I have little in common with those who are anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, 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.)
https://www.wsj.com/graphics/red-economy-blue-economy/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: America’s political polarization is almost complete. Its two main political parties increasingly represent two different economies. And they barely overlap. Democrats can be found in educated cities and suburbs where professional jobs are plentiful. Republicans live in working-class and rural communities, home to agriculture and low-skill manufacturing. . .Household income tells a similar story. A decade ago, median household income was about the same for each party. Since then, it has jumped nearly 17% in Democratic districts while falling 3% in Republican ones. . .Republican districts, by contrast, hold growing shares of the nation’s agriculture, mining and low-skill manufacturing jobs, many of which do not require a college degree, have lower pay and are more exposed to overseas competition. . .People with college degrees are more concentrated in Democratic districts than in Republican districts. . .Why does this matter? “When folks have less in common with one another, it’s hard to expect that they’re going to see the problem the same way,” said Roger Johnson, president of the National Farmers Union, “let alone recognize that a problem exists.”)

I should write a book about the aforesaid. They talk and/or act like they have been promised lots of money, a new home, a new car, a sweetheart job, a sweetheart contract, favorable legislation (video gambling, pot, etc.), and/or much more if they succeed in stopping me from putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out.)

My Civil Service Retirement System pension is $53,316/year and my Social Security is $2,118/year. I am Republican, White, male, born in 1948, 100% German national origin, baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, heterosexual, married, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used the aforesaid against me.)

(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.)

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.) 
https://federalnewsnetwork.com/commentary/2019/09/elections-and-federal-workers-the-good-and-the-bad/
(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.)

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH COLOR PICTURE: Suburban school administrators bracing for legal marijuana’s impacts – Marie Wilson
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190901/suburban-school-administrators-bracing-for-legal-marijuanas-impacts
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Students won’t be allowed to use marijuana when adult recreational use begins Jan. 1, but school leaders anticipate legalization bringing a cascade of effects in the educational realm. The need for prevention education will increase. The difficulty of determining intoxication among students and staff members will rise. The use restrictions imposed on employees will need clarification. And the regulations that come with federal funding could create conflicts. These are the chief concerns raised by educational leaders across the suburbs as they start a school year during which recreational marijuana use by adults 21 and older is set to begin under the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act. Elgin Unit District U-46 CEO Tony Sanders raised many of these points in a paper he wrote for a doctoral degree he is pursuing from Aurora University. He advises vigilance to prevent increased marijuana prevalence. “Students already have access, somehow, to illegal marijuana,” Sanders said. “I think this (law) makes it more open for students to gain access to marijuana, and I do worry about that.” Vigilance against marijuana in schools could mean posting signs to remind the public of smoke-free and drug-free regulations, which U-46 plans to do, Sanders said. Or it could mean using health class lessons to emphasize the negative implications of marijuana use by teens, which is in the plans for Glenbard High School District 87, among others. Whatever districts do to prepare for adult marijuana use, they should work to create a “culture of nonuse” among students, said Cristina Cortesi, substance abuse prevention coordinator at Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire. “Unfortunately, when a substance is legalized, it creates greater accessibility and it creates greater norms of use,” Cortesi said. “When policy is not in our favor in terms of preventing substance abuse, it’s just a harder road ahead.”)

— Are You Enabling a Toxic Culture Without Realizing It? – Celia Swanson (DIERSEN: My Democrat GAO superiors created a toxic culture to get rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who had not made GS-13 (currently $98,198) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $116,040) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $136,495) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $165,500) by age 40. Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs in have always worked very hard to create a toxic culture in the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Party, Milton Township Republican Central Committee, etc.)

— JUNE 29, 2018 FLASHBACK: What Are the Requirements Necessary to Become a Journalist? – Maria Christensen (DIERSEN: To slander me as someone who falsely claims to be a journalist, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who promote vices hint/imply/argue/shout a) that I do not have a degree in journalist like the Daily Herald’s Robert Sanchez (https://www.dailyherald.com/newsroom/RobertSanchez/) and b) that I am not paid for what I do like the Daily Herald pays Robert Sanchez. I have served as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000. I worked for GAO as an Analyst for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $98,198-$127,654/year. What GAO Analysts do (https://www.gao.gov/about/careers/career-paths/) is extremely similar to what journalists do. In addition, I became a Forensic Accountant in 1997, Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, Certified Government Financial Manager in 1994, Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, Licensed CPA in 1981, Certified Internal Auditor in 1981, and CPA in 1979.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Educational Requirements A bachelor’s degree is necessary in this competitive profession. Journalism or communications should be your major, but it’s a also good idea to minor in a specialized subject, such as political science or economics. A broad liberal arts background is required for a journalism degree, and many journalism programs require a concentration, such as electronic news or public affairs reporting, but a minor degree can give you an edge over other job seekers. For example, a journalism degree with a concentration in environmental reporting, along with a minor in a physical science, can prepare you well for science reporting. Gaining Experience You need some experience to get a job as a journalist, but you don’t necessarily need a job to get experience. Many employers won’t even look at your resume unless you have an internship listed. Your school career center can help you find internships and you can list them on your resume. Even if you intend to be a broadcast journalist, it’s a good idea to have a portfolio of writing clips to demonstrate you understand how to report on the news. Join your college newspaper staff and look for summer employment with small, local newspapers, television or radio stations. Try freelance writing for online publications or local media outlets.)

Previously, by reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, they could see how TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Illinois Center Right Coalition, and American Association of Political Consultants treated those like me who support the IRP platform.)
