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.

PBS
— 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.)

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.)

— 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.)

(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 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.)

— Your Accounting Career Plan (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 than I did. 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.)

Officer Muhammed Yusuf says racial identity is fluid and being incorrectly designated Caucasian has hampered his career. – Justin Rohrlich (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran the federal government for almost 30 years, they were always under tremendous pressure from Democrat politicians to retain and promote their Democrat employees, and especially those who were minority, female, younger, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or had ancestors who had not been in America for a long time.)

— CPAC Poll: Newsmax ‘Most Trusted’ in Cable News – Fran Beyer (COMMENT: I would hope that GOPUSA ILLINOIS would be ranked “most trusted” by those in Illinois who support the personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform. 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. In 2021, they ended my service as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks.)
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.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— What should the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) promote more strongly in its next platform and what should the IRP oppose more strongly in that platform? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

I served on the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee in 2008. Sadly, my requests to be appointed to serve on those committees again in 2012, 2016, and 2020 were not granted. Of course, I have asked to be appointed to serve on the 2024 IRP State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee.

Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party exists to defend and advance conservative principles.

In my opinion, the next IRP platform should more strongly promote the following:
— Personal responsibility,
— Traditional marriage and family,
— Right to life,
— Enforcement of immigration laws,
— Discouragement of vices,
— Second Amendment rights, and
— Equal opportunity, that is, no race or gender based preference giving.

Republican elected officials should promote the aforesaid.

In my opinion, the next IRP platform should more strongly oppose the promotion of the following:
— Dependency on government and charity,
— LGBTQ,
— Abortion,
— Mass/illegal immigration,
— Booze, gambling, pot, and other vices,
— Diminishment of Second Amendment rights, and
— DEI, that is, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.

Republican elected officials should oppose promotion of the aforesaid.

TEXAS TRIBUNE
— JUNE 18, 2022 FLASHBACK: Texas Republican Convention calls Biden win illegitimate – SEWELL CHAN AND ERIC NEUGEBOREN
https://www.texastribune.org/2022/06/18/republican-party-texas-convention-cornyn/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Meeting at their first in-person convention since 2018, Texas Republicans on Saturday acted on a raft of resolutions and proposed platform changes to move their party even further to the right. They approved measures declaring that President Joe Biden “was not legitimately elected” and rebuking Sen. John Cornyn for taking part in bipartisan gun talks. They also voted on a platform that declares homosexuality “an abnormal lifestyle choice” and calls for Texas schoolchildren “to learn about the humanity of the preborn child.” The actions capped a convention that highlighted how adamantly opposed the party’s most active and vocal members are to compromising with Democrats or moderating on social positions, even as the state has grown more diverse and Republicans’ margins in statewide elections have shrunk slightly in recent years. Votes on the platform were collected at the end of the party’s three-day convention in which party activists moved to add multiple items to the official Texas GOP platform. As the convention closed, two separate sets of ballots — one allowing delegates to choose eight of 15 legislative priorities and another allowing delegates to vote on the 275 platform planks — were gathered. Those will now need to be tallied and certified in Austin, but it is rare for a plank to be rejected, according to party spokesperson James Wesolek.)

— White supremacy goes back to ‘early church’: Oxford professor – MICAIAH BILGER (COMMENT: In my defense, I have always stressed that all my ancestors have always lived in northeast Illinois.)
https://www.thecollegefix.com/white-supremacy-goes-back-to-early-church-oxford-professor/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “The most egregious thing that we have to wrestle with is the normalization of white supremacy,” Reddie said. Although Christianity “was created as a movement for those who are marginalized and oppressed,” he said white leaders quickly began using the religion as a weapon to seize land and oppress other cultures. Reddie traced the distortion back to the early Christians who blamed the Jews for killing Jesus, instead of Roman leader Pontius Pilate, according to the report. “Pilate represents white supremacy, and white supremacy now becomes normalized and effectively becomes the religion of Jesus, the religion of God,” the professor said. As time went on, more and more people began to believe Jesus was a white European, like them, Reddie said.
Baptist News Global reports: That’s why few white Christians flinched at the claim that Jesus called European and American Christians to travel the globe to oppress brown- and Black-skinned people, he said, explaining that a Christianity suffused with white supremacy enabled plantation owners in the American South to see no contradiction between their faith and owning other human beings. “They saw people who are other as inferior and that it was OK to kill or enslave them for their own good.” Those attitudes clearly continue to exist and in the U.S. are evident in the rise of Trumpism, the British scholar said. Because white supremacy has been connected with Christianity for so long, he said it has “distorted the very fabric of what we call Christianity and the nature of church.” The Baylor conference is part of a “three-year sequences of programs on confronting racism in the white church and seeking God’s justice,” according to the event website. More than a dozen pastors, theologians, and Christian leaders participated. Baylor is a private, Protestant Christian university in Texas. Earlier this year, a Catholic university professor also linked white supremacy with the early Christian church in a new book, “Christian Supremacy.” The author, Fordham University Professor Magda Teter, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that white supremacists’ ideology “is rooted in Christian ideas of social and religious hierarchy.”)

https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nicholas-fondacaro/2024/02/23/hostin-conspiracy-gop-only-support-ivf-stave-white
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Good things don’t last long on ABC’s The View. After defending embryos as children earlier in the week, staunchly racist and anti-Semitic co-host Sunny Hostin (the descendant of slave owners) found her angle of attack against Republicans on Friday, in the wake of an Alabama Supreme Court ruling on in vitro fertilization. According to her, the only reason Republicans were now coming out in defense of IVF was because it was how they planned to stave off white people being replaced by minorities. “On the one hand, they want you to not have an abortion and then they also don’t want you to have more children. Make up your minds. Whatever that means,” Friday moderator Joy Behar kvetched, keeping with the narrative that the GOP was trying to stop people from using IVF, for some reason. Before cracking open the lid on her crazy conspiracy theory, Hostin suggested she was on the trail of something major. “I think they do want you to have more children and they just not saying the quiet part out loud,” she teased. “Which is, multicultural Americans are going to become the majority population by 2050,” she began to unwind her crazy. “By 2050, the Hispanic Americans are expected to have the most population growth, an increase of about six percent, while the white population is expected to decrease by about 11 percent. At this time, the birth rate for white Americans in this country has been falling since the great recession and it’s dropped almost 23 percent between 2007 and 2022.”)

(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.)

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.)

Reparations into his own hands: As the two remaining survivors of the 1921 Tulsa race massacre await their day in court, philanthropist Ed Mitzen, who gifted $3 million to their families, reflects on why the wealthy White community needs to “step up.” (COMMENT: What arguments do your critics/opponents make that you should pay reparations? Mine stress that my ancestors have been in America since 1844, that none of them fought for the Union Army in the Civil War, that I have a pension, that I am not poor, that I am old (born in 1948), that I am White, that I am male, that I have been married since 1978, that I have no children, that I am conservative, that I am Republican, that I avoided the Viet War draft, that I am Protestant, that I am German American, that I lived in Crete 1948-1972, and that I have lived in Wheaton since 1978.)

None of those leaders came to my defense when Democrat and RINO leaders a) ended my service as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks in 2021, b) gerrymandered my precinct in 2015, c) ended my service as the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman in 2012, d) ended my service as the MTRO webmaster in 2010 and 2004, e) ended my service as an Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee member in 2007, or f) almost got ICRC to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters in 2006.

DAILY HERALD
— Both parties agree immigration policy failing – Tonia Khouri, Naperville Township Republican Organization Chairman
https://www.dailyherald.com/20240211/letters-to-the-editor/both-parties-agree-immigration-policy-failing/
(FROM THE LETTER: The crisis at our southern border is being politicized by the media to further the partisan divide between Republicans and Democrats. Both parties agree the anonymous uncontrolled mass entry of millions of migrants is adversely affecting states, counties, cities and local communities, posing a growing risk of enduring consequences. As a nation proud of its immigrant heritage, Naperville Township values diversity and espouses generosity towards charity and helping those in need. For 3 years the Biden Administration’s border policy has negligently overlooked the surge of migrants. Bipartisan concerns have fallen on deaf ears of state and federal leadership. In these challenging economic conditions, taxpayers can’t afford the unsustainable financial burden and unintended consequences we will face due to the influx of migrants. The challenges posed by the influx of migrants remain unaddressed, with no viable solutions or responses in sight: How do you expect educators to run their classrooms when overwhelmed with an influx of migrant children with different languages and backgrounds who are required to be educated without any additional resources? How do you expect medical providers to continue the quality, cost and availability of care that our community relies upon when healthcare must account for an enormous influx of migrants into our local healthcare system? How can our elected officials guarantee our safety when additional strain is placed on law enforcement and judicial system by this influx of migrants without support? Our responsibility to stand up for the well-being and future of our children, as well as the community, transcends political boundaries. Republicans and Democrats unite in acknowledging the failure of the Biden border policy. We endorse Republican candidates who offer practical solutions and seek lasting resolutions that protect our communities instead of jeopardizing them further.)

https://www.chicagotribune.com/2024/02/08/the-way-we-were-you-can-thank-a-german-immigrant-for-the-start-of-the-naperville-public-library/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Naperville Public Library has a rich history helped in large part by the generosity of James L. Nichols. Nichols, born in Germany in 1851, spoke his native tongue until age 12. He learned to speak English after he and his parents moved to America, living first in Albany, New York, and then moving to Illinois. Nichols earned a certificate to teach at a country district school by age 18, and later moved to Naperville in 1876 when he was 25. He graduated from North-Western College — now known as North Central College — in 1880. In 1882, Nichols was appointed chair of the college’s commerce department and four years later he published a textbook called “The Business Guide.” A huge success, his book had sold 3 million copies by 1917. In 1891, he left higher education to focus on running his publishing company, J.L. Nichols & Co. Nichols was just 44 when he died Aug. 18, 1895, but what he left in his last will and testament had a lasting impact on his adopted hometown. Nichols bequeathed $10,000 to the city of Naperville for the establishment of a library with the requirements that the city maintain it, supply its materials and provide employees for its continual use.)

Government officials conspiring with Big Tech to censor millions of Americans online. The Federal government human trafficking over a million illegal and undocumented people a year. A President who took deliberate actions to make the southern border weaker.
Congress and the media labeling a protest as an “insurrection” while calling actual riots, “peaceful protests.” The American people turning a blind eye to a President who clearly is suffering from dementia and pretending that everything is all right.)

— To get votes from those who have demographics that vote for Democrat candidates, RINO candidates, RINO elected officials, and RINO party leaders ever-increasingly give more and more and more preference to those who have demographics that vote for Democrat candidates.

https://www.gobankingrates.com/money/finance/average-income-dual-income-no-kids-duos/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Every parent knows that kids are expensive. But in addition to shelling out more when you have offspring, parents also often earn less. This makes the little darlings doubly expensive. Here’s what you need to know about the income disparity between parents and those who are child-free. Couples Without Kids Earn More. Couples known as dual income, no kids — or DINKs as they’re sometimes called — earn more than couples with kids, even if both spouses work. According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey Data, as analyzed by Rocket Mortgage, the average dual-income couple who has children has income of $129,000 per year. Two-income couples without kids averaged $9,000 more per year, for a total of $138,000 in annual income. Couples Without Kids Also Spend Less. In addition to having more time to spend on their careers and the increase in salary that comes along with that, couples without kids spend less simply because they aren’t feeding, housing, clothing and educating little people who aren’t contributing to the household income. According to the Institute for Family Studies, the cost to raise a child to adulthood ranges from $202,248 to $430,928. These added expenses coupled with reduced income result in a double whammy for parents. What Are DINKs Doing With All That Extra Money? The dual income, no kids crowd earns more and spends less, so where is that extra money going? Some of it is going to savings, with DINKs putting more aside for retirements than their colleagues who are parents.)
— Mark Cuban: Here’s Why I Don’t Spend Money on a Chauffeur or Cleaning Services – Josephine Nesbit (COMMENT: I am one of the fewer and fewer and fewer homeowners in Wheaton who fertilize, mow, and edge their lawns, trim their bushes, mulch/rake their leaves, shovel their driveway and sidewalk, etc.)
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/mark-cuban-why-don-t-130059290.html
(FROM THGE ARTICLE: World-famous entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist Mark Cuban has a net worth of $4.7 billion, but even he doesn’t spend money on a chauffeur or cleaning services. On “The Really Good Podcast,” the billionaire told host Bobbi Althoff that he doesn’t have a butler, prefers to drive himself everywhere, and does his own laundry. While Cuban does have a personal chef in Dallas, he and his wife cook most of their meals. The video currently has over 2.5 million views on YouTube. Cuban said he drives himself because he enjoys the privacy when asked if he has a chauffeur. “I like the privacy. I’ve been around people who have hired somebody to do everything for them, and that’s just like no privacy,” he explained. “It’s hard enough to have privacy.” Cuban does own several houses and enjoys his private jets, which he says helps him save time. Cuban also said he tries to be the same person as when he was poor and rich and has kept most of the same friends. “When I was poor, I had a blast. I loved my life,” he explained. “I could wake up smiling and back then, you just had not to answer the phone because it could be a bill collector.” Earlier this year, Cuban told CBS’s Sunday Morning that he worked hard to keep his wealth from changing his personality and would be happy with 1% of his net worth. Born to working-class parents in Pittsburgh, Cuban didn’t grow up with the wealth he has today. When Althoff asked when he stopped being poor, Cuban said it was when he was 28 or 29 years old. “But when I was 27, I won’t forget it,” Cuban said. “I went to the ATM, and it showed me a big old zero. So that’s when I was 27. And then got past that, and then bam, bam, bam, bam, bam.”)

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH BIG PICTURE OF ANDERSON: A handful of politicians (Janice Anderson, Mark Curran, Paul Froehlich, Pete DiCianni) switch parties, citing extremism. Others question their motives.
https://www.dailyherald.com/20240207/local-politics/a-handful-of-politicians-switch-parties-citing-extremism-others-question-their-motives/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Jim Zay, the DuPage Republican Party chairman and the longest-serving county board member, suggests switching parties is an opportunistic move. Zay remembers when Democratic candidates would lose and then run under the GOP banner. Roger Kotecki, for instance, ran unsuccessfully as a Democrat in 1988 before winning a county board seat as a Republican in 1990. Now Democrats hold the county board majority in DuPage, a traditional GOP bastion. “They’re taking advantage of this situation where they think, ‘The Republican Party’s done in DuPage, and so I’m going to jump on board the Democratic side here and run for office and nobody will know,’” Zay said. “And I think the voters in DuPage County are a lot smarter than that.”)
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH BIG PICTURE: Naperville residents denounce McBroom’s ‘polite challenge’ to house migrants – Alicia Fabbre
https://www.dailyherald.com/20240207/news/naperville-residents-denounce-mcbrooms-polite-challenge-to-house-migrants/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Naperville residents Tuesday blasted City Councilman Josh McBroom, describing his idea of a volunteer signup sheet to house migrants as disingenuous and nothing more than a political stunt. McBroom drew national media attention following a Jan. 16 council meeting during which he suggested the city should look into creating a signup sheet for residents interested in housing new arrivals. In the days after the meeting, McBroom, a Republican, said his proposal was a “polite challenge” to those who support open borders. A week later, McBroom and three other council members who supported the notion withdrew the request and the city manager issued a memo stating city staff would not look into the proposal and it would not come before council for further discussion. “It has been astonishing to hear a council member declare with baseless conviction that Naperville residents are hypocrites about supporting people in need because they didn’t sign a nonexistent form,” resident Meena Banasiak said. “Instead of making an earnest effort to find common ground among different perspectives you provide a disingenuous proposal that needlessly insulted our residents and diverted attention from solving the actual problem to ridiculing people who want a real solution.” Banasiak was among the more than 150 people who attended Tuesday’s meeting, which included public comment from more than 30 residents. Though several focused on McBroom, others requested a resolution from the city council supporting a cease-fire in Gaza and addressed issues such as controversy surrounding this year’s social service agency grant awards and the resignation of a human rights and fair housing commission member. Banasiak and others called on council members to censure McBroom. Though some council members expressed disappointment in the events since Jan. 16, they did not discuss or indicate support for censure. After Tuesday’s meeting, McBroom said that while many who spoke offered to help — either through donations or programs — he did not hear anyone offer to house any migrants in their homes. Earlier this month, McBroom sent a letter to Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott thanking him for his leadership with the migrant crisis and shared his volunteer signup sheet proposal. “Democrat legislators helped to create this mess and now the rest of us are left paying the bill,” McBroom wrote. “Many of my colleagues and fellow residents are quick to support the idea of welcoming and supporting new migrants, but no one is willing to invite them into their home. And my statement proved that.” McBroom repeated similar sentiments Tuesday and remained steadfast in his belief that taxpayers should not foot the bill for new arrivals. In January, Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced another $11 million in state grants would be made available to municipalities to assist new arrivals.

Naperville Mayor Scott Wehrli said the city has not applied for state grant funding to assist migrants. He added that any grant application would have to come before the council. Though the city has not received buses carrying migrants from Texas in recent weeks, Wehrli said the city intends to follow its plan and provide safe passage to new arrivals to the landing zone in Chicago. “I don’t want to use tax dollars, I don’t want to take state aid,” McBroom said after Tuesday’s meeting.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Since SCOTUS issued its decision banning race-based affirmative action in education, multiple lawsuits have been filed against companies because of their DEI programs. PwC, an accounting firm with 46,000 US employees, was one of the companies targeted by anti-DEI activist group America First Legal in 2023 following the affirmative action decision. The group, led by Stephen Miller, said that PwC’s Start internship and scholarship programs, which only accepted applicants from underrepresented groups, could be illegal, the Financial Times reported.
