https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20191021/dupage-county-poised-to-vote-on-recreational-pot-sales-in-unincorporated-areas
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Larsen said he would be “shocked” if the board rejects the 3% tax on sales in municipalities. “I would expect everyone to support that,” he said. “We might as well get the revenue from it if we’re going to be dealing with the consequences of it.” Larsen said DuPage is expected to have increased law enforcement costs and other expenses as a result of the state legalizing recreational marijuana. “This is the only place we can get revenue to help deal with those costs,” he said. Last month, State’s Attorney Robert Berlin talked about issues other states faced after legalizing marijuana. He pointed to statistics showing Colorado experienced increases in property crime and violent crime. There also was an increase in the number of traffic fatalities with drivers testing positive for marijuana. County health department officials, meanwhile, said the availability of recreational marijuana is expected to increase use among adults and youths and hurt the health of residents. As a result, they are anticipating increased demand for public health services in DuPage.)

HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW
— Why Your Company Needs to Implement Pay Equity Audits Now – Robert Sheen (DIERSEN: If a pay equity audit of the federal government was done, it would show that it pays its employees who are Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger more than it pays its employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or older who have comparable work experience, education, and/or professional certifications and licenses. While I worked for GAO 1980-1997, GAO always paid its employees who are Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger more than it paid its employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or older who had comparable work experience, education, and/or professional certifications and licenses. GAO audits IRS. When GAO hired me in 1980, I had almost 9 years experience working for IRS, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $82,579-$93,592. I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976. I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree from DePaul. Much of what I did for IRS, including interviewing, data gathering, summary, and analysis, report writing, and making recommendations was similar to what I would be doing for GAO. NEVERTHELESS, the Democrats who ran GAO required me to take a $19,568 pay cut in today’s dollars (a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 to GS-9 Step 10) to transfer. They would NOT have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, and/or female.)

FED SMITH
— Presidential Power Versus Employees’ Constitutional Rights: Interpreting the Executive Orders Affecting Federal Workers – Mathew B. Tully, Esq. (DIERSEN: Constructively, federal employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran are deemed to be “poor performers” if they do not make 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. Extremely few federal employees make the aforesaid promotion deadlines.) 
https://www.fedsmith.com/2019/10/21/presidential-power-versus-employees-constitutional-rights-interpreting-executive-orders-affecting-federal-workers/

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Terminating Employees Deemed “Poor Performers” First off, there is a smaller timeframe in which to improve poor performance. The executive order to streamline removal procedures for federal employees decreases the amount of time that employees are subject to Performance Improvement Plans (PIPs)—that provide employees a chance to improve their job performance following a poor evaluation or reprimand—to 30 days, government-wide. That window previously lasted between 60 and 120 days and was up to agency discretion as to the length of the PIP and/or extensions of the PIP. Federal employees should be aware of additional provisions in the executive order, which direct that:)

During the 1840s and 1850s, all my ancestors immigrated to northeast Illinois from what is now Germany. Of course, needless-to-say, 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. Again, what if I had lied and successfully claimed Swedish ancestry?)

I fill the tremendous communications void created by, continued by, and aggravated by the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), Republican county party organizations in Illinois including the DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Republican township/ward party organizations in Illinois including the Milton Township Republican Central Committee. The IRP should send out emails similar to GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails that focus on statewide government and political issues. Republican county party organizations should send out emails similar to GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails that focus on countywide government and political issues. Republican township/ward party organizations should send out emails similar to GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails that focus on township/ward government and political issues. However, I acknowledge that paying people to do the aforesaid would cost a tremendous amount of money.

DAILY HERALD
— Why Intel is going to share gender, racial pay data most companies conceal – Bloomberg (DIERSEN: If the federal government shared such pay data, it would show that it pays its employees who are Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger more than it pays its employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or older who have comparable work experience, education, and/or professional certifications and licenses. While I worked for GAO 1980-1997, GAO always paid its employees who are Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger more than it paid its employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or older who had comparable work experience, education, and/or professional certifications and licenses. GAO audits IRS. When GAO hired me in 1980, I had almost 9 years experience working for IRS, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $82,579-$93,592. I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976. I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree from DePaul. Much of what I did for IRS, including interviewing, data gathering, summary, and analysis, report writing, and making recommendations was similar to what I would be doing for GAO. NEVERTHELESS, the Democrats who ran GAO required me to take a $19,568 pay cut in today’s dollars (a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 to GS-9 Step 10) to transfer. They would NOT have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, and/or female.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “I pulled up a map for a friend of mine to illustrate how many conservatives were in his neighborhood; he had no idea,” Knoedler said. “He then told me that if only he’d known he was not alone on his street, he would have felt emboldened to put a candidate’s yard sign in front of his house.” Fuller said, “Conservatives are naturally less vocal about our political views, but having a community where we can encourage each other and organize to get involved in our communities will help members feel less alone.” Colorado is a launching group, but Fuller and Knoedler hope to expand to a national site.)

— Embattled former alderman Danny Solis uses loophole to double pension – Dane Placko (DIERSEN: My Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinate were beyond furious that I could and did retroactively purchase for very little money almost 3 years of full-time Civil Service Retirement System credits for when I worked only part-time for the Park Forest Post office 1966-1969. They were already furious that when I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old, I transferred with me almost 12 years of federal seniority, 30 days of unused vacation days, and 130 days of unused sick days.) 
https://www.fox32chicago.com/news/embattled-former-alderman-uses-loophole-to-double-pension
(FROM THE ARTICLE: However, they also informed Solis of a sweetener only available to elected officials in Chicago, allowing them to purchase pension credits retroactively. So in January, Solis wrote two checks to the pension fund totaling a little more than $128,000. That allowed Solis to more than double his pension payout to $7,900 a month and $94,000 a year. Zettler says Solis’ pension boost will pay off that $128,000 investment in just two and a half years, and also put another $1.3 million in Solis’ pocket if he lives another 15 years, which is 10 times the initial investment. “It’s a can’t-lose situation for the people involved,” said Zettler. Amazingly, Solis was able to buy retroactive pension credits for his three-month stint working for the Chicago Public Library in the 1960s when he was 17 and have it paid out based on his six-figure aldermanic salary.)

Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs are nasty. I should write a book about a) how my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government used and b) how my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois use my 100% German national origin against me. They constantly foist negative German stereotypes on me. I would focus on those who are German American, but who demonize, denigrate, and condemn me to curry favor with those who hate German Americans. They paint themselves as being “good” German Americans who go around destroying “bad” German Americans like me. In my defense, I stress that they all my ancestors immigrated way back during the 1840s and 1850s, 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 if he had not been 4-F, my father would have fought the Germans during WWII. If DNA information had been available back when I worked for the federal government, I would have stressed that. 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://www.gopillinois.com

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— With former Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner out of state’s political scene, Illinois GOP turns to grassroots fundraising – RICK PEARSON (DIERSEN: What motivates you to donate money to Republican political organizations? For me, it is their demonstrating that they can and will help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance the Illinois Republican Party platform and the Republican Party platform.) 
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-without-rauner-illinois-republicans-turn-to-grassroots-fundraising-20191014-uis6mwbrcvc3veh662sfqfofci-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In its last filing with the State Board of Elections, the state GOP reported having $88,412 in cash on hand as of June 30. Rauner’s last donation to the state party, totaling $100,000, came two days after Democrat J.B. Pritzker defeated him for governor, 55% to 39%. Pritzker’s victory has turned the tables on Republicans. The Democrat is the country’s wealthiest politician, worth $3.4 billion and ranking 250th on the Forbes 400 list of wealthy Americans. President Donald Trump comes in at 275th on the list with a net worth of $3.1 billion. Pritzker gave his campaign $172 million and his campaign fund has given the state Democratic Party nearly $3.2 million, state campaign finance records show.)

They painted what GAO Analysts do as being a unique “trade or occupation.” They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, or veteran. They viciously demonized, denigrated, and condemned the fact a) that I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $82,579-$93,592/year, b) that much of what IRS Revenue Officers do is similar to what GAO Analysts do, c) that I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, d) that I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, and e) that I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul. They were furious that I transferred with me almost 12 years of federal seniority, 30 days of unused vacation days, and 130 unused sick days.)

My Democrat GAO superiors 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 a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat 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. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)
