My critics/opponents attribute my successes in life to my benefitting tremendously from discrimination against those who are minority, female, younger, veteran, unmarried, parents, LGBTQ, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. In my defense, I stress that neither of my parents attended college. My father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. He worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant on the east side of Chicago Heights. He almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. He died suddenly when he was 47 and I was 21. My mother never attended high school and never worked outside of the home until after my father died. Because of the aforesaid, I took college preparatory courses in high school. I got and ACT score of 24. I graduated in the upper 20% of my 1966 Crete-Monee High School class. I worked my way through college. I earned a bachelor’s degree and three master’s degrees. I earned six professional certifications. I earned a professional license. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on those whose parents are/were rich. Who bought them cars. Who paid for their college expenses. Who got them good jobs.)

— During the last 8 years that I worked for the Democrats who ran GAO’s Chicago office, they had my Black subordinate lead the office’s big annual Black History Month events. In September of 1997, they forced me to take their early retirement “offer” and gave my Black subordinate my job and my preferred corner office.

— A quarter of United Methodist churches in U.S. have left during split (COMMENT: In 1961, when I was 13 years old and in 8th grade at Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete ( https://www.trinitycrete.org/ and https://ilhs.org/ ), the church’s split had a tremendous impact on me. The pastor succeeded in dumping the Missouri Synod for the Wisconsin Synod. My father was one of the Church Elders who led an unsuccessful fight to stay with the Missouri Synod. To stay with the Missouri Synod, my parents transferred to Hope Lutheran in Park Forest. Since 1847, all my ancestors had always been Missouri Synod Lutheran. On my father’s side, they all had all graduated from Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete. But in 1962, I graduated from a newly formed extremely small 8th grade at Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest. The church split created many divisions between those who stayed with the Missouri Synod and those who joined the Wisconsin Synod. The split ended big annual family reunions in Crete and Grant Park that had been organized by both my father’s and mother’s parents.)

— Donald Trump’s bizarre pitch to Black voters is martyrdom marketing. Joe Biden may be the main beneficiary. – Clarence Page (COMMENT: According to my critics/opponents, none of the many big adverse actions that my Democrat superiors in the federal government took against me were because I complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. According to my critics/opponents, my Democrat GAO Chicago office superiors did not a) fail/refuse to promote me beyond GS-13, b) throw me off audits of IRS, c) always rank me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and d) force me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old because in 1988 I became the office’s only active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. According to my critics/opponents, my Democrat IRS Chicago office superiors did not a) fail/refuse to promote me beyond GS-12, b) disallow my travel vouchers in 1974, and c) disallow my education deductions in 1978 because I complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. According to my critics/opponents, my Democrat GAO superiors did not force me to suffer a $22,996 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO because of the aforesaid. If I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran, my aforesaid Democrat IRS and GAO superiors would not have taken any of the aforesaid big adverse actions against me. They would have promoted me into their Senior Executive Service because a) I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, b) I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, c) I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, d) I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, e) I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and f) I became a licensed CPA in 1981.)

— Chicago Cop Sues For Right To Change His Race – SAMUEL SPENCER (COMMENT: If I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran, my Democrat superiors in the federal government would not have wasted my career, they would not have taken the many big adverse actions against me that they did.)
https://dailycaller.com/2024/02/27/chicago-cop-sues-for-right-to-change-his-race/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A veteran of the Chicago Police Department has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city because they won’t allow him to change his race designation within their records. Mohammad Yusuf, 43, a 20-year veteran of the police department, is suing the city of Chicago because they won’t allow him to change his race designation from Caucasian, even though he “identifies as Egyptian and African American,” according to CWB Chicago. In 2004, when Yusef joined the force, the department only offered Caucasian, Black and Hispanic as race designations. Now, the Chicago Police Department reportedly lets new recruits choose from over nine different race designations and allows officers to alter their gender identity if desired. But in Yusef’s case, the department has a “blanket prohibition” for race changes, CWB Chicago reported. The lawsuit states: “The Racial Identity Policy Ban facially and intentionally discriminates against certain individuals based on personally identifiable characteristics like race,” CWB Chicago reported. Yusef’s complaint suggests that his career was hindered due to his race designation, according to the outlet. “Despite Yusuf’s exemplary qualifications and the purported race-neutral policy of the Merit System, Yusuf has been repeatedly bypassed for promotion in favor of less qualified candidates, based on their race, specifically African American officers, some of whom had disciplinary issues and were not suitable for the responsibilities of a sergeant,” the complaint said, according to CWB Chicago. Although Yusef took a 23 and Me DNA test to prove his Egyptian heritage at the request of the CPD, the department remained unwilling to approve his request, according to the outlet. The CPD does not reportedly require transgender officers to provide proof of their “transition” before updating their personal records.)

— How long do you need to save to buy a home in Chicago? 4 years, experts say. – Elvia Malagón (COMMENT: Back in the good old days, that is, back in the 1970s, it took me only 25 months to earn and save enough to buy a new town home in University Park — 15 months working for IRS, 18 months working part-time for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights, and 7 months working full-time for that store before that. During that time, I earned and saved enough to also buy a new 1972 Corvette in 1971 and to pay for graduate evening business courses at Loyola in 1972.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— Chicago has one of the largest income inequality gaps in the country – Jack Grieve (COMMENT: To remedy that income inequality, in 1997 when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” and they gave my job to my Black subordinate. In today’s dollars, my annual income dropped by $84,910/year or 57%. In today’s dollars, my GAO salary was $150,075/year. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is only $65,165/year or only 43% of what my GAO salary was. Further, to remedy that income inequality, in 1980 when I was 31 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take a pay cut to transfer from IRS to GAO. In today’s dollars, my income dropped by $22,996/year or 21%. In today’s dollars, my IRS salary was $110,020/year. My GAO salary was only $87,024/year or only 79% of what my IRS salary was. According to Democrats and RINOs, I have always been overpaid.)
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/economy/chicago-has-10th-highest-income-inequality-us
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A household in Chicago must bring home an annual salary of at least $149,219 to be among the city’s top 20% of earners. On the other hand, any household earning less than $27,255 is in the bottom quintile bracket. That means the city’s top one-fifth of earners make at least 5.47 times as much as the bottom one-fifth of earners.)

I would not have bought that car if my 1969 Dodge Charger SE had not been stolen. I had worked for IRS for only 4 months. My salary was $54,728/year in today’s dollars.

They are blamed for all the losses that Republicans suffer during and after they are chairmen. I served as the chairman of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois 2005-2012. I should write a book about those who have blamed me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters the most for losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct suffered since 2005. I would focus on the candidates who suffered losses and their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers. I would focus on leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization, and Illinois Center Right Coalition. I would focus on conservative and religious leaders and activists.)

I would have majored in accounting instead of management at UIC, NIU, and Loyola and I would have done things much sooner than I did. As it was, I did not earn an MBA from Loyola until I was 27 in 1976. I did not take and pass the CPA examination until I was 30. I did not earn a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul until I was 31. I did not take and pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination and become a licensed CPA until I was 32. But by then, because of my bad demographics, I was much “too old” to have a successful career in accounting. I did not take more than one graduate evening course at a time at Loyola and DePaul because of financial limitations and time limitations. IRS did not offer me a job until I was 22 and it was as a “Revenue Officer” job instead of a “Revenue Agent” job because I had not taken enough accounting courses.)

The more of the aforesaid planks that my critics/opponents reject, the harder that they work against me. I should write a book about my critics/opponents who are working against me the hardest.

https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/cpac-conservatives-straw-poll/2024/02/25/id/1154886/
(COMMENT: Newsmax was voted by the Conservative Political Action Conference the “most trusted” cable news outlet in America — trouncing rival Fox News by a whopping 34 points, according to a straw poll conducted at the annual conference. CPAC announced the findings of the survey Sunday after four days of meetings in Washington, D.C. Each year CPAC organizes the nation’s most influential conservative conference, drawing major political and celebrity figures weighing in on policy issues and political races. The CPAC poll findings showed: 49% said Newsmax, when asked which network do you “trust the most.”
Only 15% said the same about Fox News. 29% chose “none” of the options as a trusted outlet. Either CNN or MSNBC was the choice for 1% each.
The survey was conducted by McLaughlin & Associates from Wednesday to Saturday — with a total of 1,478 conservatives participating. Participants appeared to be happy about Newsmax but were less sanguine about Big Tech platforms and their leaders. Some 55% of CPAC attendees singled out Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg as the Big Tech CEO “doing the most to undermine America.” Google CEO Sundar Pichai came in second at 32% with Amazon’s Jeff Bezos at 5% and Apple’s Tim Cook at just 1%. The survey also asked participants what was the best way to combat “woke elites.” Almost a majority, 46%, said it would be to “give to grassroots efforts to mobilize conservatives.” Some 25% said donating “directly to candidates for Congress” was the best approach. Participants completed the survey using a unique six-digit PIN code to eliminate multiple or outside voting.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Scaman says Cook County is reimbursing the village for monthly expenses of more than $300,000. “At this point, we’re going to see all the money we invested,” she said. At its Jan. 23 meeting, Oak Park trustees authorized staff to pursue a grant of $1.9 million through the Illinois Department of Human Services and the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus. The village received notice the following week that grant was approved. The funding will be used to provide aid to asylum-seekers through June 30. That will enable the village to continue helping migrants in a different shelter because asylum-seekers staying at the Carleton and West Cook YMCA must leave by the end of February.)

WEDNESDAY JOURNAL
— The uncomfortable truth – Jonathan Panton
https://www.oakpark.com/2024/02/20/the-uncomfortable-truth/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some may live in denial, but entering the United States illegally is a crime. The village of Oak Park has continually used the term “asylum-seeker” to hide the truth. First, the term “asylum-seeker” is misleading. Applicants seeking asylum protection have the burden of (1) proving that they suffered past persecution or have a well-founded fear of future persecution; (2) the applicant is a member of a protected ground (race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, political opinion); (3) there is a connection between the harm the applicant suffered and their protected ground; and (4) the applicant either fears harm from the home country’s government or the home country is unable or unwilling to control a private person. INA§101(a)(42)(A). Asylum is designed to protect those who meet these four elements. In the fiscal year of 2023, asylum relief was denied in the majority of cases. While some individuals are genuinely escaping persecution, there are many others who unlawfully enter the United States for economic opportunities. This does not warrant asylum protection. The primary job of a government is to keep its citizens safe. In 2023, Customs and Border Patrol had 3,201,144 encounters with illegal immigrants. A serious concern is the lack of vetting of illegal immigrants in the United States. Border Patrol Chief Jason Owens stated on X (Twitter) that his agents arrested an average of 47 individuals every day in 2023 who had “serious criminal histories.” Moreover, those figures only included individuals who have been apprehended. In 2023, 860,000 “gotaways” unlawfully entered the United States. These individuals pose safety concerns since their criminal backgrounds and whereabouts are unknown to law enforcement agencies. Oak Park’s Village Board broke its duty to residents by approving a $1.9 million grant providing various services for immigrants, some of whom may be illegal. The $360,000 allocated toward giving illegal immigrants various legal services is wasteful. The role of the government is to provide public services like police, fire, roads, schools. I don’t recall the village paying for residents’ legal services spent appealing their outrageous property tax bills. Yet Oak Park has no issue doling out money for legal representation to individuals whose first act in the United States may have been a crime.)

Neither of my parents attended college. My father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school.

I earned professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48. I earned a professional license when I was 32. In terms of buying new cars, how successful have you been compared to your parents? My father did not buy a new car until he was 45 and it was a bottom of the line 2-door 6-cylinder 1967 Chevrolet. Thanks to my outstanding parents, with money I earned, I bought a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint when I was 17, a 1968 Oldsmobile 442 when I was 19, a 1969 Dodge Charger SE when I was 20, and a new 1972 Corvette when I was 23.)

NPR ILLINOIS
— Democrat and RINO leaders ever-increasingly kill the American Dream for Americans, and especially for Americans who are heterosexual, conservative, Republican, White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time. The Post Office hired me when I was 18 in 1966, Firestone Stores when I was 21, IRS when I was 22, and GAO when I was 31. But because I am all of the aforesaid, if I was 18, 21, 22, or 31 today, I doubt that they would hire me.

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— Government shouldn’t have the power to discriminate based on race – Julian Adorney (COMMENT: Life is a zero-sum-game. To give preference to one group is to discriminate against another group. To give preference to minorities and/or females is to discriminate against Whites and/or males. My Democrat superiors in the federal government used Affirmative Action and DEI big time to give preference to their Democrat employees who were minority and/or female. Ever-increasingly, to get more votes from minorities and/or females, Democrat and RINO politicians use DEI to give preference to minorities and/or females.)
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/2861205/government-shouldnt-have-the-power-to-discriminate-based-on-race/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In his new book The End of Race Politics, Coleman Hughes takes aim at the spread of diversity, equity, and inclusion ideology in the U.S. government. Instead of DEI that discriminates on the basis of race, he argues, we should adopt colorblindness as a national policy. What is colorblindness? Hughes defines it this way: “We should treat people without regard to race, both in our public policy and in our private lives.” One reason to adopt colorblindness as a national policy is that the government cannot be trusted with such a weighty power as picking and choosing which skin colors to favor and which ones to disadvantage. The government’s race-based classifications are completely arbitrary. Hughes notes that the current five racial categories (black, Hispanic, white, Asian/Pacific Islander, Native American/Alaska Native) were developed by the Carter administration and are enormously inconsistent. For example, Pakistanis are considered to be Asian. But Afghans right next door are considered to be white. The arbitrariness with which these lines were drawn isn’t fixable; it’s baked into the cake. Race is a social construct and is at least somewhat fuzzy, so racial categorization means the government will inevitably rely on crude measures to try to decide who fits into which bucket. . .There’s an even bigger problem: History shows that governments can’t be trusted with the power to discriminate. Slavery was the law of the land for 89 years (1776-1865), and Jim Crow for another 100 (1865-1965). For most of our nation’s history, the U.S. government wielded its power to place a boot on the neck of people of a specific skin color. A mere six years ago, then-president Donald Trump was reported as referring to Haiti and African nations as “s***hole countries” from which we shouldn’t want more immigrants. Is this really the government that social justice warriors want to endow with the power to make more decisions on the basis of race? This point should be especially salient for proponents of DEI. Ibram X. Kendi, one of the most popular advocates of DEI in the United States, proposed the creation of a new Department of Anti-Racism with totalitarian powers to police Americans’ speech and actions. But in How to Be An Antiracist, Kendi said that the United States has “stage four” racism (comparable to stage four cancer). He says racism and white supremacy have “spread to nearly every part of the body politic.” If the United States is as irredeemably racist as he claims, who does he imagine will end up staffing his new Department of Anti-Racism? Where will he find the saints necessary to discriminate in the “right” way rather than use their enormous powers to discriminate the “wrong” way? Hughes notes that the civil rights movement and the abolitionist movement fought for the idea that our government should be colorblind. The abolitionist Wendell Phillips said in a speech in 1867, “When once the nation is absolutely, irrevocably pledged to the principle that there shall be no recognition of race by the United States or by State law, then the work of the great anti-slavery movement which commenced in 1831, is accomplished.”)

HERITAGE FOUNDATION
— Scranton Joe and the Temple of Doom Spending – EJ Antoni and Peter St Onge (COMMENT: Back in the good old days, that is, back in 1972 when I was 24, I bought a new townhome ( https://www.redfin.com/IL/University-Park/774-Sunset-Ct-60484/unit-5/home/23344604 ) in University Park. The downpayment came from what earned a) working for IRS for 15 months, b) working part-time for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights for 18 months, and c) working full-time for that store for 7 months before that. That money also enabled me to buy a new Corvette in 1971 and to pay tuition for graduate business courses at Loyola in 1972. In today’s dollars, my IRS salary was $54,728/year in 1971 and $66,942/year in 1972.)
https://www.heritage.org/markets-and-finance/commentary/scranton-joe-and-the-temple-doom-spending
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Millions of young Americans seem to have given up on their economic future, turning instead to “doom spending.” Adults under 30 are moving back in with their parents at rates not seen since the Great Depression, giving up on the American dream of homeownership. So long as the uniparty in D.C. keeps spending like there’s no tomorrow, America’s youth will believe there’s no tomorrow for them.)

BLOOMINGTON PANTAGRAPH & HERALD & REVIEW
— With tax credit scholarships expiring soon, Illinois schools, parents scramble to fund students’ tuition – ALYSA GUFFEY (COMMENT: How much money do/did your parents have/had? My critics/opponents have always falsely painted my parents as having been filthy rich because they sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod. But in fact, my father never earned more than $50,000/year in today’s dollars. He almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. Because my parents lacked money, I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964 to buy a 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air in 1964. I washed dishes and delivered newspapers 1964-1966 to buy a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in 1966. I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966 and delivered mail 1966-1967 to pay my UIC expenses and buy a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 in 1967. I delivered mail in 1968 to pay for my UIC expenses and buy a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE in 1968. I delivered mail in 1969 to pay for my NIU expenses 1969-1970.)

Liberals are preparing to fight back if he wins. – AP (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran GAO 1980-1997, IRS 1971-1980, and Post Office 1966-1969, virtually all of my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were Democrats. Virtually all of them despised/hated Republicans. My Democrat superiors and supervisors wasted my career and took many big adverse actions against me. It is called political affiliation discrimination. I should write a book about that.)

— While I worked for the Democrats who ran the federal government for almost 30 years (Post Office 1966-1969, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997), a) virtually none of my superiors and supervisors were Republican and b) fewer and fewer and fewer of my coworkers and subordinates were Republican. While I have served as a DuPage County Milton Township Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999, fewer and fewer and fewer of my fellow Precinct Committeemen are conservative, that is, fewer and fewer and fewer are platform Republicans.

LINKEDIN
— Top Tips for Career Advancement in Accounting – Lisa Ingram (COMMENT: In retrospect, with benefit of hindsight, if I could do it over again, I would have overcome my fear of not being able to pass the CPA examination much sooner. I would have majored in accounting instead of management at UIC, NIU, and Loyola and I would have done things much sooner than I did. As it was, I did not earn an MBA from Loyola until I was 27 in 1976. I did not take and pass the CPA examination until I was 30. I did not earn a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul until I was 31. I did not take and pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination and become a licensed CPA until I was 32. But by then, because of my bad demographics, I was much “too old” to have a successful career in accounting. I did not take more than one graduate evening course at a time at Loyola and DePaul because of financial limitations and time limitations. IRS did not offer me a job until I was 22 and it was as a “Revenue Officer” job instead of a “Revenue Agent” job because I had not taken enough accounting courses.)
