— Fired Teacher Sues School Board, Claims He Was Terminated for Conservative Political Activism – Virginia Allen
(COMMENT: RINOs a) reject the equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) plank in the Republican Party platform and b) promote patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. RINOs are overjoyed that my Democrat superiors in the federal government wasted my career and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old because I opposed political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination and I became an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. I should write a book about the biggest RINOs in the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization, Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton.)

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/13/opinion/david-shor-biden-democrats.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Over the 20-year period from 1970 to 1990, whites, especially those without college degrees, defected en masse from the Democratic Party. In those years, the percentage of white working class voters who identified with the Democratic Party fell to 40 percent from 60, Lane Kenworthy, a sociologist at the University of California-San Diego, wrote in “The Democrats and Working-Class Whites.” Now, three decades later, the Democratic Party continues to struggle to maintain not just a biracial but a multiracial and multiethnic coalition — keeping in mind that Democrats have not won a majority of white voters in a presidential election since Lyndon Johnson’s landslide victory in 1964.)

JOURNAL COURIER
— German heritage well-rooted in state – and a cause for celebration – Tom Emery
(COMMENT: All my ancestors immigrated during the 1840s and 1850s to northeast Illinois from what is now Germany. My grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans during WWI. My uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII. My father would have fought the Germans during WWII if he had not been 4-F. I should write a book about those who have used my being 100% German national origin against me the most. I would focus on those who have also used my being baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran against me the most.)
https://www.myjournalcourier.com/insider/article/German-heritage-well-rooted-in-state-and-a-16511797.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: German-American Day is observed every Oct. 6 and, in Illinois, there is plenty of reason to celebrate. German ancestry remains prevalent in Illinois, as it has for a century and a half. The strength of German-Americans helped shape Illinois history through a Civil War, as well as two world wars against the old country. Of the nearly 1.8 million residents of Illinois in 1860, nearly 325,000 were of foreign birth. Germans were the largest ethnic group with 130,000, nearly 8% of the state’s total population. Some 20% of Chicago’s population was German. Many had arrived following the failed German revolution of 1848. . .Many Germans were farmers, while others were laborers, merchants, and skilled tradesmen. Some followed the popular crafts of their homeland and worked as butchers, bakers, shoemakers, furniture and wagon builders, and cigar makers. Architecture of traditionally German-American buildings, often in brick, still is visible across the state. German-language newspapers were found across the state, even in the smallest cities. In 1859, future presidential candidate Abraham Lincoln bought the press and type to establish a German-language Republican paper. In Peoria, future Illinois Secretary of State Edward Rummel, a native of Baden, Germany, ran a German paper and print shop that produced goods in both German and English. John Wood, who founded the city of Quincy and served as governor for 10 months in 1860-61, was born to a German mother. In 1892, John Altgeld, a Prussian native, won election for one term as Illinois governor and is best known for his pardon of three of the accused in the infamous Haymarket Riot. Politically, German support was crucial, and their weight was felt at the first Illinois Republican state convention in 1856. The German influence also was a key factor in the 1860 presidential race, and at the Republican National Convention in Chicago, German resolutions were even incorporated into the national platform. Germans were perceived to be staunch abolitionists, though some scholars dispute that claim. Nearly 6,000 Illinois Germans enlisted in the first six months of the Civil War, comprising practically three whole regiments. One top German commander was Friedrich Hecker, a renowned 1848 revolutionary who was a gentleman farmer near Belleville, in the heart of heavily German settlements. Another German regimental commander from St. Clair County was Gustave Koerner, who served as lieutenant governor of Illinois from 1852 to 1856 and was a pallbearer at Abraham Lincoln’s Springfield funeral. By 1910, more than 319,000 German immigrants were in Illinois, and more than 1 million people of German descent — a 10th of the national total — called the state home. With nearly 400,000 first- and second-generation German immigrants, Chicago was the sixth-largest German city on the globe in 1914. The high concentration of Germans caused some protest at the outbreak of World War I, as many of German descent decried their adopted country’s stance against their homeland. Music by German composers such as Mozart and Beethoven was banned in some public places, and some German-Americans were under surveillance by state and federal officials. Other German-Americans were forced to recite loyalty oaths in public spectacles. Within a few years, use of the German language, once prominent, faded from schools and churches. As a result, many Germans in Illinois distanced themselves from their heritage. From 1914 to 1920, the number of Illinois residents who identified themselves as German on the U.S. Census dropped more than 41%, to 112,000. But many Germans remained loyal to the American cause and took active roles in the war effort both at home and abroad. A quarter-century later, dislike of German residents was a minor issue in World War II, as many chose to focus their disgust on Adolph Hitler, rather than their German neighbors. Today, German heritage in Illinois is celebrated in festivals and carnivals statewide, while some communities in Chicagoland, as well as Moline, Peoria, Gibson City, Mascoutah, Waterloo and Millstadt, feature popular German restaurants. Museums and research centers on German-American history and heritage are found in several large metro areas, including Chicago, Frankfort and the Quad Cities.)

https://dailycaller.com/2021/10/05/victor-davis-hanson-breaks-down-how-elites-are-destroying-what-it-means-to-be-an-american-citizen-in-new-book/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The overarching theory of social scientists and historians is the shift from an “equality-of-opportunity” to an “equality-of-outcome” society. This transformation during the New Deal was the requisite for the entire 1960s continuance under the Great Society programs and their redefinition of civil rights to encompass government-ensured economic parity through higher taxes, income redistribution, massive new government spending, and forced proportional representation by race and gender in hiring and admission. Up until then, Americans traditionally had been open to new and stronger laws protecting equality of opportunity but were wary of the destructiveness of envy, the ancient fuel of an equality-of-result society that saw government punish its more successful citizens.)

(DIERSEN: GAO audits IRS.

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Vietnam’s class war and our wars – DAVID PAUL KUHN
(DIERSEN: What was the biggest mistake that you have made in your life? For me, it was my avoiding the draft. I got student draft deferments 1966-1971 and a financial hardship draft deferment 1970-1971. I should write a book about those who have used my avoiding the draft against me the most. I would focus on the adverse actions that a) my Democrat Post Office superiors 1966-1969, b) my Democrat Firestone superior 1970-1972, c) my Democrat IRS superiors 1971-1980, and d) my Democrat GAO superiors 1980-1997 took against me.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/opinion/commentary/ct-opinion-vietnam-class-war-college-deferments-20211001-imtjszj7wnfuze3kjxgiz5p3oy-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A half-century ago, the cruelest case of legalized class privilege in modern American life was abolished. For America’s “fortunate sons” and future leaders, attending college was such a common route to avoid the Vietnam draft, though the policy’s inequity is now conveniently relegated to the footnotes of that fraught era. Unlike any war since the Civil War, Vietnam asked the least of those who came from more. The war’s unjust burden combined with how the anti-war movement manifested on college campuses — especially elite campuses — led Vietnam to play an early role forming a class and cultural fault line that severs us still. Most of the era’s youth who came to lead us had a student deferment — including Presidents Joe Biden, Donald Trump and Bill Clinton and Vice President Dick Cheney. Other privileged sons, such as President George W. Bush, avoided combat by attaining a coveted National Guard slot. Educational deferments were the lion’s share of the more than 15 million men who legally evaded conscription. College graduates were roughly 6.5 times less likely to serve in Vietnam than other civilians of the same generation. (High school dropouts were twice as likely.) Fewer than a fifth of those with a student deferment came from modest circumstances. By comparison, 7 of 8 protesters in this era had at least one year of higher education. A century after elites lawfully avoided the Union and Confederate drafts, there was again an understanding that only a certain sort did most of America’s fighting and dying in war. As Vietnam escalated in 1967, a majority of male collegians — and half of all students — considered themselves a war “hawk,” but two-thirds of them objected to “the same proportion of college students” being drafted as non-college youth. Rifts within that ’60s generation lingered largely ignored while, polls show, the “generation gap” was overhyped. Blue-collar whites, in particular, were not more supportive of the war than upscale whites but they were exceptionally critical of the anti-war movement. It was their kin and kind shouldering the bulk of the fighting in Vietnam. Because the wealthy were almost exclusively white, white soldiers were “actually more likely than Black veterans to be drawn disproportionately from the working class,” as one study noted. In fact, from their sense of “lost status” to most veterans’ low opinion of “draft dodgers,” veterans’ views were more divided by class than by race. Many of them resented “good boys” marred by the “bad war” and campus activists who lectured those with less status about social justice, even as their college sanctuary meant lowlier boys might die in their place. After the war, James Fallows challenged the “bright people of my generation who made a cult of their high-mindedness” but “willingly took advantage of this most brutal form of class discrimination.” At Boston’s Navy Yard in 1969, Fallows saw his fellow Harvard and MIT students “deliberately failing (their) colorblindness tests,” even as the next bus of the “white proles of Boston” arrived. “We knew now who would be killed.” Yet here we are, recently witnessing the end of another war that went on too long and asked too much of too few. The soldiers of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars disproportionately hailed from veterans’ families and, as with Vietnam, rural areas. Today’s leaders hardly bat an eye at how the coastal enclaves that steward our politics, economics and culture contribute little per capita to the military power that, whatever its mistakes, helps secure their dominance. Our small warrior class does choose to enlist. Though circumstances impact that choice. Struggling youth often still risk the worst in war to get somewhere better in life. Yet most Americans who served and died in Vietnam were also volunteers. And conscription, however divisive, lessened the class divide. The potential to be drafted also invested America in the war’s tragedy, unlike our 9/11 wars. Still, even when the affluent served, they were the least likely to see combat. Draft resistance almost always paid off for those who could pay (for college or a draft-law lawyer). Occupational deferments favored upscale fields. This overall inequity sparked an under-discussed class war that boiled beneath the real war and exacerbated America’s emerging culture war. It also portended a working-class outlook that they bore unfair stigmas and unjust burdens. “The critics are picking on us, just ‘cause we had to fight this war. Where were their sons? In fancy colleges? Where were the sons of all the big shots who supported the war,” one Vietnam veteran asked in Murray Polner’s book “No Victory Parades.” “For every guy who resists the draft one of us gotta go.” After witnessing a protest, the veteran added: “One of their signs read: ‘We’ve already given enough.’ And I thought, ‘What have they given?’” Near the war’s end, David Broder read the book and wrote that it highlighted what we “prefer not to think about … the least democratic war of our century. There was no equality of sacrifice.” Fallows later asked, “Why … especially in the atmosphere of the late sixties, people with any presumptions to character could have let it go on?” And in some sense, why do we still?)

— Finding Purpose In Your Work – Tim Hetzner
(COMMENT: What is the purpose of your work? Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. The purpose of my work is to encourage Illinois House Republicans, Illinois Senate Republicans, Illinois Republican Party, Republican County Chairmen’s Association of Illinois, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization, Republican county, township, and local elected officials, Republican candidates, conservative leaders, religious leaders, etc. to defend and advance the Republican Party platform, and especially its traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. The more of the aforesaid planks that my critics/opponents reject, the harder that they work against me. This year, they succeeded in stopping me from raising funds from Republicans so that they could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks.)
