http://www.laconiadailysun.com/opinion/letters/102905-russ-wiles-3-17-360
(FROM THE LETTER: Thanks to Matt Vespa of townhall.com for pointing out examples of the lunacy of political correctness in academia today. Of course we know that this insanity is due in part to teachers imbuing a belief in young students that America is just not a very nice country. Of course, this too is yet another example of the progressive-left convincing folks that expecting foreigners who we welcome into this country to assimilate is just plain racist, mean and nasty. Democrats and the progressive-left in this country apparently are not able to comprehend the irony of their ideology. Perhaps that is why they are not paralyzed by what should for all intents and purposes be debilitating “cognitive dissonance.” Please look it up and then reflect on their actions, the irony of which should keep them up at night. It apparently does not because, after all, they have good intentions and so the often damaging results of their well intended actions and deeds are irrelevant to them. Crazy right?)

— IS COLLEGE A SCAM? – Kent Kellar  (DIERSEN: How successful were you in putting your college degree to work?  In August of 1970, I graduated from NIU with a bachelor’s degree in management and started working for Firestone in its Chicago Heights Store as its Retail Sales Manager.  In early 1971, because I was not putting my college degree to work, I accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile to be a Factory Representative.  The Firestone Store manager immediately fired me when I gave him my 2-week notice.  But then, Oldsmobile withdrew its job offer saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint.  That directly resulted in my accepting a job offer from IRS to be a GS-7 (currently $43,914) Revenue Officer.)
http://conservativerepublicannews.com/2016/12/29/is-college-a-scam/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: College graduates are finding themselves unable to put their degrees to work, LeAndre Martinez of the Huffington Post explains that “I am 23 years old. I’ve got $60,000 in debt from student loans. I make around $10 an hour working as a cook, and I live off of about $20 a week after I cover rent and other expenses. Since I graduated, my degree has been pretty much useless. When people see that I have a degree, it’s like it doesn’t even mean anything. Every job that I’ve done, it’s kind of been by personal relation or word of mouth.” Martinez is not a lazy millennial, but a product of a weak economy and a diminishing labor force. Investors Business Daily of Dec. 2016 explains, “40 percent of [Millennials] still live with their parents, a 75-year high. They can’t afford to live on their own… This may well be the challenge of the coming decade — to re-skill and retrain younger workers so that they can find better, higher paying jobs and move out of their mom and dad’s house and into their own digs. They’re just bearing the brunt of decades of failed economic policies that have cut U.S. economic growth from 3 percent-plus to below 2 percent, and caused family incomes to stagnate.”)

— Trump’s Walk of Fame star gets 24-hour security
http://www.fox32chicago.com/news/219637652-story
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Donald Trump is getting a lot of security obviously now that he’s President-elect, but did you know his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is also getting a lot of security. The star is all repaired and drawing big crowds after being vandalized last month. Now, it has 24/7 protection. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has placed three barricades around the star, and two officers are on foot patrol along with a squad car nearby at all times. The LAPD days this monitoring does not cost extra for the city, since officers are always patrolling the busy area. There is no word on when this presidential protection will cease. This all comes about after a vandal hacked out the star’s gold-colored name and television logo last month. The culprit, James Lambert Otis, told news media outlets he originally intended to “remove” the entire star from the 6800 block of Hollywood Boulevard, auction it off in New York and give the money to the nearly dozen women who allege they were groped or sexually mistreated by Trump. But Otis said he was unable to accomplish the feat.)

She revealed that she continued to track their whereabouts after the festival was over. Maude, 18, is a freshman in Northwestern’s School of Communication, according to a university spokesman. She declined a Tribune interview through her publicist.)

THE BLAZE
— Tucker Carlson slams business owner Mathew Blanchfield who refuses to work with ‘ignorant’ Trump supporters – Tre Goins-Phillips  (DIERSEN: How many Blanchfields are there in America, in Illinois, in your county, in your township/ward, in your municipality, and in your precinct?  They all voted for Clinton. How soon, if not already, will they display signs that say the following are not wanted: Trump supporters, Protestants, conservatives, Republicans, Americans, Whites, males, older people, rich people, gun owners, German-Americans, draft avoiders, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors?)
http://www.theblaze.com/news/2016/11/24/tucker-carlson-slams-business-owner-who-refuses-to-work-with-ignorant-trump-supporters/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mathew Blanchfield, CEO of the Albuquerque-based internet marketing firm 1st in SEO, went on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday to defend his announcement that those who support President-elect Donald Trump are “not welcome” at his company. And the conversation between Carlson and the business owner was brutal. “If you are a Republican, voted for Donald Trump or support Donald Trump, in any manner, you are not welcome at 1st in SEO and we ask you to leave our firm,” Blanchfield’s original letter read. During the bewildering discussion on Fox, Carlson asked the CEO why he would say something like that. Blanchfield argued he is standing on “moral principle” and that he is intolerant of bigotry, racism, sexism and fascism. The New Mexico entrepreneur went on to draw comparisons between Nazi Germany and the United States under a Trump administration. “When you say ‘fascism,’ I mean, you don’t really believe that? If you believed that Trump was a fascist dictator, then you would organize an actual resistance to him. You would be Dietrich Bonhoeffer, you would be fighting against him for real,” Carlson told the Blanchfield. “[W]hy wouldn’t you take up arms against him? If you really believe the country is being taken over by someone you compare to Hitler, then that’s — I mean — that’s like the worst thing that could ever happen.” Blanchfield, who throughout the interview noted the number of death threats he’s received, told the Fox anchor that their discussion was his “resistance.” Clearly becoming frustrated by the interaction, Carlson told Blanchfield he is “belittling historic reality” by comparing Trump to Hilter. “Being rude to news anchors who make $3 million a year is not the same as rounding up an entire ethnic group and killing them, or invading Poland,” the Fox host said. “For you to say that really does diminish actual historical crimes,” Carlson added. In the end, Carlson shot back at Blanchfield, telling him he’s “on a moral vanity trip like I’ve never seen.” “Has it ever occurred to you that every rich, famous person, fashionable person, in America agrees with you?” Carlson asked. “That you’re taking no risk at all? That, in fact, people like you are celebrated in every American newspaper, at award ceremonies? I mean, come on.”)

— Trump, Republicans plan to target benefits and job security for federal workers – Lisa Rein  (DIERSEN: According to this article, there are about 2.1 million civilian federal employees.  From what I see,  virtually all of them are Democrats.  Political affiliation discrimination is rampant in the federal government.  What if Trump decided to make the federal government “look like America.” What if he said that he is going to fire about 1,050,000 federal employees and replace them with Republicans?  I would be more than happy to help him with that.  On the other hand, 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.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/ct-trump-federal-workers-20161121-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President-elect Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress are drawing up plans to take on the government bureaucracy they have long railed against, by eroding job protections and grinding down benefits that federal workers have received for a generation. Hiring freezes, an end to automatic raises, a green light to fire poor performers, a ban on union business on the government’s dime and less generous pensions – these are the contours of the blueprint emerging under Republican control of Washington in January. These changes were once unthinkable to federal employees, their unions and their supporters in Congress. But Trump’s election as an outsider promising to shake up a system he told voters is awash in “waste, fraud and abuse” has conservatives optimistic that they could do now what Republicans have been unable to do in the 133 years since the civil service was created. “You have the country moving to the right and being much more anti-Washington than it was,” said former House speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., a leading Trump adviser who serves on the president-elect’s transition team. “We’re going to have to get the country to understand how big the problem is, the human costs of it and why it’s absolutely essential to reform,” said Gingrich, who urged Trump to shrink big government and overhaul the “job-for-life” guarantee of federal work. Gingrich predicted that Stephen Bannon, a former Breitbart News chief who helped steer Trump’s campaign and is now one of his most influential advisers, would lead the effort. “It’s a big, big project,” he said. The project aligns with Bannon’s long-stated warnings about the corrupting influence of government and a capital city rampant with “crony capitalism.” Breitbart headlines also provide a possible insight into his views, with federal employees described as overpaid, too numerous and a “privileged class.” “Number of Government Employees Now Surpasses Manufacturing Jobs by 9,977,000,” the website proclaimed in November. There are 2.1 million federal civilian employees. Top Republicans on Capitol Hill say their first priority will be making it easier to fire employees regarded as incompetent or who break the rules. “It’s nearly impossible to fire somebody,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. “When the overwhelming majority do a good job and the one bad apple is there viewing pornography, I want people to be held accountable.” Chaffetz said he plans to push through wholesale changes to the generous retirement benefits that federal workers receive, by shifting to a market-driven, 401(k)-style plan for new employees.)

Smith  (DIERSEN: Should the time that I spend putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out be counted as a “monetary donation” to those who read the emails?  I spend 10+ hours each and every day putting the emails together and sending them out.  At $100 an hour, that is $1,000+ each and every day, $7,000+ each and every week, $30,000+ each and every month, $365,000 each and every year, and $3,650,000 each and every decade.)
http://www.fedsmith.com/2016/10/16/executive-order-seeks-to-increase-federal-employee-donations-to-cfc/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Contributions to the CFC have been going down each year since 2009. A new executive order seeks to reverse this by allowing retired federal employees to donate as well as allowing agencies to count federal employees’ time spent working for charity as a monetary donation.)
