— Millennial traits shape economy  Millennials aren’t big spenders or risk takers, and that’s going to reshape the economy – Don Lee  (DIERSEN: What did you spend your money on when you were under 35?  For me, it was college expenses, new cars, real estate, etc. What risks did you take when you were under 35?  For me, it was seeking and accepting draft deferments; earning a job-related bachelor’s degree and two job-related master’s degrees; passing the CPA examination and the Certified Internal Auditor examination; becoming a licensed CPA; not becoming a Democrat; accepting job offers from Firestone Stores, Oldsmobile, IRS, and GAO; getting married; etc.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-millennials-economy-20161010-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: They’re known for bouncing around jobs, delaying marriage and holing up in their parents’ basements. Dubbed recently as the “children of the Great Recession” by Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, millennials are the best educated and most diverse population of young people in U.S. history. They are also perhaps the most coddled, some would say spoiled. As they emerge this year as the United States’ largest demographic group — some 75 million strong — millennials are taking up the mantle as the most impactful generation since the baby boomers. Their influence has started slowly, due largely to the economic instability that has left many struggling to find good-paying jobs and saddled with staggering student loan debt. But millennials — adults under 35 — are certain to shape the economy for decades to come. And their coming of age in the midst of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression has bred distinct traits that could pose special challenges for the nation’s future growth and prosperity. For starters, millennials are not big spenders, at least not in the traditional sense. Millennials tend to prefer experiences over buying things and accumulating stuff. To them, an impressive selfie capturing a memorable moment is, in some sense, as enviable as a new car or fancy watch was to their parents.)

KANKAKEE DAILY JOURNAL
— Who’s losing on legal gambling? Looks like those who can least afford it – Editorial  (DIERSEN: Gambling is a vice.  If you promote gambling, you promote vice.)
http://www.daily-journal.com/opinion/editorials/who-s-losing-on-legal-gambling-looks-like-those-who/article_188cbdb8-38e8-5c5a-95b2-fa2409cc1cce.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: During the first eight months of the year, gamblers dropped $18.9 million into video poker machines in the city of Kankakee.  Daily Journal senior reporter Lee Provost recently reported on video poker totals in his weekly business column. The numbers were sobering — and staggering. In Kankakee, $4.3 million was “lost” in the machines. Ask yourself this. Who can afford to lose $4.3 million? The totals wagered from Kankakee add up to roughly all the totals from Aroma Park, $811,751; Bradley, $8.5 million; Bourbonnais, $1.8 million; Manteno, $6.3 million; and Momence, $2 million — combined. Here’s what this tells you. A disproportionate number of the terminals, or the wagers, or both, are coming from middle class and lower middle class areas. Does it make sense that Kankakee’s wagers are 10 times those of Bourbonnais? When video gambling was legalized, the initial thought seemed to be to help out small restaurants and taverns. Instead, what has happened is the creation of mini-professional storefronts that have rows of machines. A discussion of Aroma Park’s experience indicated that is where the money is flowing now. One mainstream Aroma Park restaurant no longer operates its machines. In addition, one local mayor quoted indicated that she had not seen many cars in front of one wagering establishment. Translation: It might be that a small number of people are losing a lot of money. Moreover, the amounts wagered are escalating rapidly — up by a third or more in half a dozen communities. Now, we would not want to be Carry Nation with the ax, crusading against demon rum. It would be impossible to go back to no gambling. But a wide range of studies estimates that somewhere from 1 to 2 percent of the population can be classified as being “problem gamblers.” These are people who don’t know when to stop, and show up to follow a bad day with another long session to get even. So, in the pile of proceeds being raked in by the state, we ask a question: Is enough money being set aside to help those who will need help? Much like cigarette taxes, the government seems to need and relish the money. Unlike tobacco, are we warning people enough?)

— Were He Seeking Any Other Job, Trump Would Be Flagged by H.R. – Andrew Ross Sorkin  (DIERSEN: 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.nytimes.com/2016/10/11/business/dealbook/were-he-seeking-any-other-job-hr-would-flag-trump.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Donald Trump describes himself as a businessman. And he says he wants to run the government more like a business. But would any business hire Mr. Trump? It isn’t a trivial question. Given the Republican presidential nominee’s vulgar boasts about sexually assaulting women and trying to coerce a woman to commit adultery with him — among other things — it is hard to believe he could get past the human resources department of a Fortune 500 company. Over the last decade, much of corporate America has put in place strict policies to deal with sexual harassment and other offensive behavior, trying to make amends for an abhorrent history of letting such conduct go unchecked (remember “Mad Men”?). Hiring procedures at large companies, particularly for senior positions, include extensive background checks, which typically include interviewing former colleagues and combing through articles, court records and, yes, social media. Thousands of employees have been fired or pushed out for using far less repugnant language than Mr. Trump’s words about how he gropes women. Walmart, the nation’s largest employer, with some 2.2 million employees, has explicit policies, for example, that prohibit “sexually explicit language, off-color jokes, remarks about a person’s body” as well as “using slurs or negative stereotyping,” “verbal kidding, teasing or joking” and “intimidating acts, such as bullying or threatening.” By those definitions, it is not clear if Mr. Trump would qualify to be hired as a janitor, let alone a senior executive. A spokesman for Walmart, asked whether Mr. Trump’s comments would disqualify him from employment there, said: “We’ve got a policy of not entertaining hypotheticals.” Mr. Trump has apologized for his language, which he described as “locker room talk.” But he used the language while on the job; he was recorded on a live microphone while working to promote “The Apprentice,” his popular reality show.)
— Trump’s Threat to Jail Clinton Erodes Democracy, Experts Say – MAX FISHER and AMANDA TAUB  (DIERSEN: Constructively, Clinton promises, if elected, to use the federal government to give those who are anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors WHAT THEY WANT.)

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/11/opinion/donald-trumps-sad-lonely-life.html
— Count Trump Among the Takers – BRYCE COVERT  (DIERSEN: Are you a taker?  Should everyone be required to publicly disclose how much federal income tax that they have paid in each of the last 10, 20, 30, 40, 50+ years?  Since 1978, my wife and I have paid more federal income tax because we pay the marriage penalty.  SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marriage_penalty)
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/11/opinion/campaign-stops/count-trump-among-the-takers.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Because Donald J. Trump hasn’t released his tax returns, we don’t know exactly what portion of his fortune he has sent the federal government. But in the second presidential debate, he confirmed that there were a number of years where he paid nothing at all. A week ago, The Times published his partial state tax returns from 1995 that show a substantial business loss that could have allowed him to avoid paying income taxes for nearly two decades. When asked by the moderator Anderson Cooper whether he indeed used the loss to get out of a tax bill, Mr. Trump replied, “Of course I do.”  But rather than attempt to convince the American people that he had paid his fair share of taxes, Mr. Trump has vociferously defended the virtue of his ways, even arguing that paying nothing makes him fit to be president. “That makes me smart,” he retorted when presented with the idea during the first presidential debate. He told the Fox host Bill O’Reilly two days later, “A lot of people say, ‘That’s the kind of thinking that I want running this nation.’ ” He’s now calling it “brilliant.” Mr. Trump’s assertion that people should pay as little as they can in taxes — because, as he told Mr. O’Reilly, the government will “waste the money” — fits with quite an old conservative ideology. The government is bloated, inefficient and trampling on freedoms, the thinking goes; therefore, it deserves as little of our tax money to prop it up as possible. It’s no coincidence that Mr. Trump proposed a tax cut during the primary that was unprecedented, costing the government about double the revenue as would have been lost to Mitt Romney’s plan.)

— A dozen hikers busted while police escort Governor Rauner through Starved Rock  Despite a busy holiday weekend, there were no falls to report at Starved Rock State Park. Conservation Police Sgt. Phil Wire says they did hand out 27 tickets counting Saturday and Sunday at the park. Four of them were for having small amounts of pot while the rest of the tickets were either for alcohol or being caught off the trails. Governor Bruce Rauner and his wife hiked about five miles at Starved Rock Saturday according to Wire. While walking with the governor, police nabbed a dozen other hikers for being off the trails.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2016/10/10/misogynistic-trash-megachurch-pastor-from-trumps-own-evangelical-council-denounces-him/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A member of Donald Trump’s evangelical council wrote a sharply worded email calling the Republican presidential candidate’s lewd comments made in a 2005 video “misogynistic trash that reveals a man to be lecherous and worthless,” saying he is no longer willing to offer more of his time without a “change of heart and direction.”  On Monday, Ed Stetzer, executive director of Wheaton College’s Billy Graham Center for Evangelism, published an email on his blog from a Chicago-area megachurch pastor who is on Trump’s council. (Stetzer does not serve on the council.) James MacDonald, pastor of Harvest Bible Chapel, a nondenominational evangelical church in Rolling Meadows, Ill., wrote the email to several members of Trump’s faith council, his campaign liaison and to some who oppose Trump’s candidacy.)

— Lawsuit claims Yahoo ousted male employees – Jon Swartz  (DIERSEN: In 1989, GAO instituted its pay-for-performance system to get rid of its employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2016/10/07/lawsuit-claims-yahoo-ousted-male-employees/91724590/
(FROM THE ARTICLE:  A second man has filed a lawsuit alleging Marissa Mayer and other top Yahoo female executives discriminated in favor of women in their hiring, firing and promotions in the company’s editorial division. Scott Ard, who worked for more than three years at Yahoo until early 2015, says he and others were terminated to “accommodate management’s subjective biases and personal opinions, to the detriment of Yahoo’s male employees,”  according to a lawsuit filed in federal court in San Jose, Calif., this week. The suit alleges the performance-rating system, fostered by Mayer, resulted in a rapid succession of individual layoffs, which violates the U.S. and California Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) acts that require advance notification of mass layoffs.)

http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/wheaton/news/ct-wheaton-single-mothers-home-1007-20161006-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A long-vacant office building in a prominent Wheaton location could be repurposed as a group home for new and expectant single mothers. Built in 1987 as the Wheaton Inn bed-and-breakfast, the 19,813-square-foot, three-story brick building at 301 W. Roosevelt Road, later was used as the offices for Invesco PowerShares, an exchange-traded fund firm. The company relocated to offices in the former Sara Lee building in Downers Grove in July 2012, and since then, the building has been vacant and listed for sale. Now, the Clarendon Hills-based nonprofit group Love from Above has a contract to purchase the building and is proposing to place up to 12 expectant mothers in the house. The group’s founder and CEO, Yvonne Florczak-Seeman, said Love from Above intends to buy the building from Invesco PowerShares subsidiary PCM Properties LLC and use it for a two-year transitional housing program. The building will be known as the Butterfly Garden, she said. “This is for women in college who get pregnant who want to continue their education but don’t want to have an abortion. For them, their choices are parenting or abortion,” Florczak-Seeman said. For Florczak-Seeman, 52, the issue of support during an unplanned pregnancy is a powerful — and personal — one. As a teenager, she experienced an unplanned pregnancy and made the decision to have an abortion — a decision she says she regrets. “Pregnancy is not a terminal illness or a disease,” she said. “It’s a nine month process. We need to empower these girls. Motherhood won’t destroy them; it will mature them. Motherhood or adoption is a beautiful decision. I have been feeling that this kind of program is much needed. There is not one organization that empowers young ladies.” The building will serve as the home for women ages 18 to 26 for two years each, Florczak-Seeman said. The building would have a nursery to care for babies whose mothers want to attend classes. The group also would offer on-site culinary and fashion design programs for mothers, she said. The group, which also would place all of its offices on the first floor of the building, relies on private donors, Florczak-Seeman said. “We are very excited,” she said. Wheaton officials said that while they have received an application from the group, they haven’t yet determined what kind of zoning change, if any, the group’s proposed use would require. PCM Properties LLC bought the building for $2.625 million in 2005 from Kathryn Harbison, who had run the Wheaton Inn bed-and-breakfast.)

TIMES
— Paper favors local GOP hopefuls – David Giuliani  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, in Illinois, television stations, newspapers, radio stations, websites, etc. a) promote the Democrat Party platform and b) promote candidates who will defend and advance the Democrat Party platform.)
http://www.mywebtimes.com/news/local/paper-favors-local-gop-hopefuls/article_202d7114-9806-5e61-a9cd-a44c6d70a7d2.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Every week, the Illinois Valley Times reaches mailboxes in La Salle County, with stories promoting the candidacies of Republican state representative candidates Jerry Long and David Welter. One of its owners, Dan Proft, is largely mum about the local paper, which is among a string of conservative publications popping up around the state this year. The local paper, which started in July, has no advertising, other than for a nonprofit conservative group to which Proft belongs. The chain was started in the winter by the Chicago-based Liberty Principles PAC, which receives much of its money from Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner. Over the summer, a private corporation, Local Government Information Services Inc., took possession of the papers, Proft said. The company filed its corporate paperwork with the state in mid-August, a few weeks into its management of the papers. The Times asked Proft how the company makes money with its newspapers. “I’m certain you don’t understand how newspapers or businesses make money,” Proft said in an email to a reporter. “In addition to ads, have you ever heard of the concept of subscriptions as a revenue source for newspapers, for example? Are you familiar with the concept of seed capital used to launch and grow a business? I didn’t think so.” Proft said the reporter could not be fair in reporting about his company’s newspapers, suggesting the reporter favors Long’s opponent, Rep. Andy Skoog, D-La Salle. “That makes you an advocate not a journalist. So please make sure Andy Skoog reports your ‘stories’ as in-kind contributions (in his campaign reports),” Proft said in an email. The registered agent for the company is an accountant, which often is the case in corporate filings. The company’s information listed no president, though Proft has confirmed before he is one of the owners. Proft, a former Republican candidate for governor and radio show host, declined to answer whether any seed money for the company came from Liberty Principles PAC. By law, political action committees must report expenditures and donations. He also wouldn’t say whether the papers would stop circulating after the Tuesday, Nov. 8, election. The paper regularly runs stories favorable to Long, of Streator, and Rep. David Welter, R-Morris, who is facing Democrat Martha Shugart, of Morris. The most recent editions contained headlines such as “Long supports Illinois farming” and “Welter seeks district input.” ‘Justifiable grounds’  In March, the state Board of Elections ruled complaints against Liberty Principles and its papers were filed on “justifiable grounds.” The complaints alleged Liberty Principles failed to include proper attribution of its papers’ funding source and coordinated with candidates. In its ruling, the elections board said Liberty Principles was “admonished” to ensure all its political literature and communications identify the PAC as its funder. Specifically, it must include “paid for by” language. At some point afterward, Local Government Information Services took control of the papers. In July and August, the Illinois Valley Times included no ownership information. Now it lists its corporate owner, but still includes no phone number. Skoog tied to Mautino  Liberty Principles, which Proft heads, still involves itself in La Salle County. This week, the group distributed a mailer linking Skoog to his predecessor, Frank Mautino, D-Spring Valley, whose campaign spending is under federal investigation. “Will Andy Skoog be any different than Frank Mautino?” the flier asks. Earlier this year, Skoog publicly asked Mautino to answer questions about his spending. But, like Gov. Rauner, Skoog declined to join calls for Mautino’s resignation as state auditor general, saying he wants investigations completed first.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “He that will not work shall not eat (except by sickness he be disabled). For the labors of 30 or 40 honest and industrious men shall not be consumed to maintain 150 idle loiterers.” — John Smith, 1609  One out of 6 prime-working-age adult males in the United States is not temporarily unemployed, or “between jobs,” or “looking for work.” No, a huge cohort of men in America is now neither employed nor looking for work. They are just skating by on a combination of girlfriends, wives, mothers and government benefits. Their status, argues Nicholas Eberstadt in “Men Without Work,” is a “quiet catastrophe.” Until relatively recently, choosing not to work was a luxury only the wealthy could afford. Everyone else had to keep the wolf from the door (though the temptation to try to live off others has always been with us — see John Smith above). In the 1950s, 98 percent of prime-age males were working or looking for work (i.e., in the labor force). Today it is 88 percent. Recessions have affected labor-force participation, but the downward trend line has been consistent for decades. Only 15 percent of non-working men cite inability to find work as the reason for their idleness. Eberstadt examines the usual explanations. The retirement of baby boomers? It doesn’t account for the decline in work by those aged 25-54 (traditionally, the group most likely to be employed). The participation of prime-age men in the labor force fell from 94.1 percent in 1948 to 84.3 percent in 2015. Aren’t more men in college? If the work patterns of 1965 were obtained today, even accounting for the extra students enrolled in education programs, an additional 10 percent of America’s young men would be employed. “The overwhelming majority of adult male job trainees,” Eberstadt writes, “appear to be job holders already. … Most men enrolled in formal schooling are also in the workforce.”)

http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2016/10/04/sex-abuse-survivor-urges-lawmakers-to-change-state-statues-on-child-sex-abuse/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Scott Cross made headlines when he testified that former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert abused him when he was a wrestler at Yorkville High School in the late 1970’s. He says sometimes it takes a lifetime for survivors to come forward. “I understand that the average age that an individual is willing to come forward is roughly 42 years of age. Our current state stops at age 38. It is unbelievably hard to step forward and confront a person of power and trust in somebody that you idolized and respect,” said Cross, who is now 54. He is also the brother of former Republican statehouse leader Tom Cross.)

— Some MBA programs are receiving fewer applications.

However, it became increasing clear that my Democrat IRS superiors wanted to replace me with someone who was a Democrat, a minority, a female, younger than me, and/or a veteran. In keeping with that, in 1978, my Democrat IRS superiors disallowed all the aforesaid courses. They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the courses a) were not job-related, b) did not help me carry out my job duties, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, d) qualified me for a new trade or business, and e) were a distraction.  I took IRS to Tax Court and I won, the court allowed all my graduate business courses.  However, the court disallowed the graduate accounting courses that I had taken at DePaul 1976-1978 by accepting my Democrat IRS superiors’ argument that those courses qualified me for a new trade or business.)

Lack of oversight and approval of financial investments, contracts and budget transfers also raised questions.)

DAILY HERALD
— Naperville Republicans hosting spring primary to make election ‘open’ – Marie Wilson  (DIERSEN: If you are NOT going to defend and advance the Republican Party platform and the Illinois Republican Party platform, you should NOT seek or hold any kind of government or political office as a Republican.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20161004/news/161009522/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republican voters in Naperville Township should mark their calendars for Feb. 28, 2017, when they can head to the polls for a primary election. The Naperville Township Republican Organization decided to hold a primary next year instead of a caucus to choose candidates for positions before the April 4 election. Seats included in the primary are for supervisor, clerk, assessor, highway commissioner and four township trustees. Carl Schultz, Naperville Township Republican chairman, said the group chose to buck its recent trend of slating candidates through a caucus because a primary will allow all interested voters to get involved. “I think it’s a very positive move,” Naperville Township Supervisor Rachel Ossyra said. “It shows the organization’s commitment to transparency, accountability and ensuring all the voters have access.” With a caucus, state-mandated to take place during a gathering on a certain night, Schultz said “there’s a lot of people that are excluded — not maliciously, but by fact.” Military members or college students or anyone who happens to be out of town on caucus night wouldn’t be able to participate, Schultz said. Neither would anyone in the hospital or unable to access the caucus site. The decision comes at a time when Naperville Township is the subject of political discussions about government consolidation — either by managing road district operations through agreements with other entities or by potentially eliminating townships themselves. “Given some of the local issues regarding townships, we thought we should broaden (the candidate selection process) and make it as open to the entire community as possible,” Schultz said. “It gives voters the best opportunity to weigh in on what’s going on.” What’s going on, Schultz and Ossyra say, is really a discussion about “modernizing government.” The discussion could mean more people will want to be involved as candidates. If there is broader interest, Naperville Township Highway Commissioner Stan Wojtasiak said hosting a primary is a good move. It allows anyone to gather signatures, get their name on the ballot and run — without having to be a party insider. “It opens up the field to anybody who has any interest,” Wojtasiak said. The Republican organization is encouraging anyone who wants to run for a township position to review the 2017 candidate’s guide from the Illinois State Board of Elections. Prospective candidates must file nominating petitions between Nov. 21 and 28.)

1011 NOW
— Lawmakers concerned as millennials show little interest in public service – Peter Zampa (DIERSEN: 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.1011now.com/content/news/Lawmakers-concerned-as-millennials-continue-to-show-little-interest-in-public-service-395866121.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Are millennials uninterested in public service? That’s a question lawmakers are pondering in Washington. Statistics show younger generations are scared off by federal government jobs. “Bring back this sense of civic idealism that you can make a difference,” said Steven Olikara, Founding President of the Millennial Action Project. Millennials are shying away from public service. The goal of the Millennial Action Project is to bring American politics into a more inclusive and bipartisan age, by using the talents of younger generations. “There’s this larger narrative that we have to combat which is that you can’t make a difference in public service,” said Olikara. “The levels of distrust continue to be high levels. Something like 80 percent of millennials don’t trust the government to do the right thing.” Olikara says recruitment and compensation are two huge issues when it comes to incentivizing young people. “There is a systemic problem, we need cultural change, and I think the biggest thing I hear all the time is, we need to be rewarding talent and rewarding results,” said Olikara.)

http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/theo-epstein-and-his-neighbors-near-wrigley-hire-private-security/
(FRON THE ARTICLE: With crime surging citywide, residents in one of Chicago’s wealthiest neighborhoods are chipping in to hire private security guards to patrol their 16-square-block section of Lake View a half-mile west of Wrigley Field. Among those donating to the cause: Cubs President Theo Epstein and his wife. The Epsteins are among “dozens” of families who have contributed to the Southport Community Alliance, a not-for-profit group formed in June to pay for patrols of homes bounded by West Grace Street, West Roscoe Street, and Southport and Ashland avenues. Marie Whitney, Epstein’s wife, is one of three directors of the organization, according to state records. Besides a rise in burglaries and robberies in their neighborhood, the Epsteins understandably have other concerns about safety.)
