I worked for GAO as an Analyst for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $101,176-$131,532/year. I worked on audits of federal financial institution regulators for almost 9 years, on audits of IRS for 3 years, and on audits of many other federal agencies, including Railroad Retirement Board, Department of Defense, U.S. Postal Service, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Energy, Department of Transportation, Immigration and Naturalization Service, General Service Administration, Federal Highway Administration, Department of Labor, Federal Aviation Administration, Veteran Administration, Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Department of Health and Human Services, for almost 6 years. I worked for IRS as a Revenue Officer for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $85,084-$96,431/year. I worked for the Post Office as a part time carrier/clerk for almost 3 years at the GS-4 Step 1-3 levels, currently $16.64-$17.75/hour. I learned a lot about federal court procedures as an active member in a class action lawsuit and as the plaintiff in two lawsuits. I learned a lot about arbitration procedures as a grievant four grievances and as a Financial Regulatory Authority arbitrator since 1998).

— Volusia Republican dominance: Gap between GOP, Democrats growing – Mark Harper (DIERSEN: What percent of the voters in your precinct, municipal district, municipality, township, and county a) unethically cast Republican primary ballots to do whatever damage that they can to the Republican Party and b) vote for Democrats in general elections?)
https://www.news-journalonline.com/news/20200211/volusia-republican-dominance-gap-between-gop-democrats-growing
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The gap between Republicans and Democrats in Volusia County is now more than 7,000 and growing, as the GOP’s ground game and the demographics of who’s moving to the Daytona Beach area are contributing factors to a reddening county. But for Sunshine State voters who want a say, there is a significant deadline approaching. They must be registered as a Democrat or a Republican by next Tuesday, Feb. 18, in order to vote on March 17. Florida remains a closed-primary state. For presidential preference primaries, NPAs have no say. In Volusia County, more than 3 in 10 registered voters are ineligible to vote for President Trump, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg or anyone else in March. That’s in large part because considerably more and more Floridians are not signing up with the parties.)

How much pot will pot-pushing reporters, journalists, editors, activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, etc. use themselves, and if little none, why? First, each and every one of the aforesaid should be asked on the record a) how much pot have they themselves used, b) how much pot are they themselves using now, c) how much pot do they themselves want to use, d) what restrictions on pot use do they themselves want to be rescinded, e) are they themselves making money from the sale of pot now, and if so, how much, f) how much money do they themselves want to make form the sale of pot in the future, and g) how much tax revenue do they themselves want governments to get from the sale of pot? Then, those government, political, law enforcement, religious, healthcare, education, etc. leaders who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican who did not speak out against pot at municipal and county hearings should be asked on the record to explain in detail why they did not speak out against pot at municipal and county hearings.

DAILY SIGNAL
— Help Us Produce Real News – Katrina Trinko
https://www.dailysignal.com/2019/12/29/help-us-produce-real-news/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As conservatives, we know the facts are on our side. But it’s not easy to communicate those facts—especially in a hostile environment with so many liberal-leaning media outlets. What’s more, good, original, compelling journalism is time-consuming and expensive. Producing “real news” involves a lot of fact checking, editing, and rigorous research—and involves competition against outlets with hundreds, if not thousands, of reporters, editors, and contributors. . .But challenges remain. In 2020, we’re excited for some new projects, including running op-eds from college students—to showcase the new conservatives of the next generation. We’re aiming to produce more original content on YouTube and Instagram—two key platforms for getting the conservative message out among young adults. And we’re planning to send our reporters up and down the country—because we know, contrary to what the swamp would have you believe, the most important stories are happening outside Washington, D.C.)

— New Budget? No Budget? Maybe You Need a Bit of Both – Julia Carpenter (DIERSEN: Why do you have less money? For me, it is the success that my Democrat superiors in the federal government had in wasting my career and getting rid of me. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is only 42% of what my 1997 salary was in today’s dollars.)

It is ever-increasingly clear that pot pushers want everyone in your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, and in Illinois to be a stoner. To use pot is to destroy yourself, and therefore, to destroy your neighborhood, your precinct, your municipality, your township/ward, your county, and Illinois.

— How Influential Women in Business face challenges in a male-dominated world – Kim Mikus (DIERSEN: Do/did you have a male-dominated job? All the jobs that I had while I worked for the federal government were male-dominated. I delivered mail for the Post Office 1966-1969, I collected delinquent taxes for IRS 1971-1980, and I audited federal agencies for GAO 1980-1997. In my opinion, my superiors had a very hard time hiring and retaining women for the aforesaid jobs not because they were male-dominated jobs, but because they were viewed by virtually everyone as being “bad jobs.”)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— We’re living in (almost) the best of times – Michael Barone (DIERSEN: From what I see, employment opportunities for those who share my terrible demographics are worse today. Employers are less likely to hire, retain, or promote those who share my terrible demographics. The Post Office hired me in 1966 when I was 16; I doubt that it would hire me today if I was 16. Firestone Stores hired when I was 21; I doubt that it would hire me today if I was 21. General Motors offered me a job when I was 22; I doubt that it would offer me a job today if I was 22. IRS hired me when I was 22; I doubt that it would hire me today if I was 22. IRS promoted me when I was 23, 24, and 25; I doubt that IRS would promote me today if I was 23, 24, or 25. GAO hired me when I was 31; I doubt that it would hire me today if I was 31. GAO promoted me when I was 38; I doubt that GAO would promote me today if I was 38.

The SECURE Act increases that age to 72, which may have tax implications, depending on where the account holders fall in their tax bracket in the year they withdraw.
