NORTHWEST HERALD
— McHenry County reviewing marijuana tax; Franks opposes setting tax at cap Franks voices concerns about setting it at state-established 3% cap – DREW ZIMMERMAN (DIERSEN: Disgustingly and tragically, the more available that pot is, the more pot that will be bought. QUESTION: Who buys pot? ANSWER: Those who have severe physical and/or mental health problems.) 
https://www.nwherald.com/2019/09/13/mchenry-county-reviewing-marijuana-tax-franks-opposes-setting-tax-at-cap/atu38nj/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: However, Franks said he doesn’t think setting the tax at its cap is prudent. Therefore, he made a public recommendation to lower the rate. “You don’t want to make [marijuana sales taxes] so high that people are going to go and buy it in other counties,” Franks said. “Also, if it’s really high, it’s going to keep the illicit market going and encourage the illegal behavior that we’re trying to stamp out, so I think it’s bad business, and it’s also bad for our law enforcement.”)

— ‘We’re Tightening Our Belt’: Trump’s Midwest Support Tested As Farmers Struggle – CLAY MASTERS (DIERSEN: What has tested your support for the Republican Party? If I had become a Democrat, the Democrats who run the federal government would have promoted me into their Senior Executive Service long before I was 40 years old. If I had become a moderate, that is, if I had become a RINO, those who dominate the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and the Illinois Republican Party would have promoted my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails since 2000.)

(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.)
