— Lawmakers: Obama’s hiring of political appointees ‘deeply troubling’ – SUSAN FERRECHIO  (DIERSEN: GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job.  IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.  The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.)
http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/lawmakers-obamas-hiring-of-political-appointees-deeply-troubling/article/2603443
(FROM THE ARTICLE: House and Senate lawmakers Monday called for changes to federal hiring practices that appear to be fostering political favoritism in the Obama administration, by making it too easy for political appointees to become career federal workers. A new report issued by the Government Accountability Office found that out of 69 cases in the Obama administration where federal appointees were able to convert political jobs to career federal service positions, a quarter of those hires “did not follow proper procedures intended to prevent improper political favoritism.” The process of political appointees converting their appointments into career positions is known as burrowing. “The nonpartisan watchdog’s findings that one out of every four political appointees who burrowed into the executive branch during this administration did not follow the rules is deeply troubling,” House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton, R-Mich., said in a statement. “One of the reasons the federal government has laws on merit-based hiring is to prevent cronyism and political favoritism,” said Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation Chairman John Thune, R-S.D. “GAO’s finding that the Obama administration hasn’t consistently followed these rules is troubling.” The GAO found that among the 30 agencies reviewed, 28 reported “converting 69 individuals from political to career positions from January 1, 2010, to October 1, 2015,” and among those, 17 were hired without required review by the Office of Personnel Management. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, called for the administration to impose “a more stringent process,” for hiring employees who began as political appointees. The largest number of appointee-to-career federal employee conversions took place at the Department of Homeland Security.)

FORBES
— Mark Kirk And The Failure Of GOP Moderates – Chris Ladd
http://www.forbes.com/sites/chrisladd/2016/10/03/markkirk/#218d229b5c09
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois sent a Republican to the US Senate in 2010. Mark Kirk won in an otherwise solidly Democratic state by positioning himself as a unique brand of Republican. Voters saw him as a courageously pragmatic voice, a counterbalance to the extremism sweeping the GOP elsewhere in the country. Senator Kirk has been a bitter disappointment, slipping into the timid habits of the party’s other moderates. Now Illinois voters are about to bring him home. Sending Mark Kirk to the Senate has accomplished nothing for Illinois other than to empower outrageous characters like Ted Cruz and Jim Inhofe. When Senator Ted Cruz held the entire country hostage to his filibuster of a budget compromise, how did Kirk protect his constituents? By sitting in the background, waiting for a green light from Senate Republican leadership to end the filibuster. Kirk did nothing to mobilize opposition to Cruz’s goals or tactics and never opposed him publicly. Like other reasonable Republicans in Washington, he kept his head down, missing every opportunity to rally sane, pragmatic Republicans into a relevant power bloc. When Senator Rand Paul organized a bizarre, paranoia-laden rant of a filibuster to halt the appointment of the CIA Director, Illinois voters might have expected their Senator speak up for their interests against the “whacko bird” caucus. Instead, Kirk brought Senator Paul a snack. Contrary to popular belief, the Republican Party still retains a core of solid citizens with the country’s best interests at heart. Many of those Republicans, like Senators Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and Rob Portman, occupy positions from which they could affect change in the party. Unfortunately, sensible Republicans have consistently been spineless in the face of opposition from the party’s fringes. Elect a reasonable figure like Mark Kirk and he will meekly place every ounce of his (your) power and influence in the service of the carnival barkers at the party’s extremes. Speaking to audiences in Illinois, Kirk has been proud to support immigration reform. In Washington, silence. In Illinois, Kirk has claimed to embrace scientists’ positions on climate change. In Washington when he could have taken a stand that mattered, he blinked. Facing friendly audiences in Illinois Kirk admits to being pro-choice. When he gets to Washington his pro-choice credentials are hidden in some obscure Senate closet, only taken out be used on votes with no consequence. Kirk has refused to support Donald Trump, but like almost every other prominent Republican he has done so quietly and ineffectively, in a manner calculated to deliver the weakest impact. On issue after issue, Kirk lines up with Illinois voters until he leaves the state. In the face of opposition from other Republicans in Washington, Kirk takes the safe route. Blind to the irony, Kirk has made “courage” the signature of his campaign for re-election. His remarkable recovery from a stroke, which features at the center of his campaign message, makes his Senate record all the more awkward. Kirk struggled back to health in the face of  paralysis, eventually scaling several flights of stairs in the Willis Tower in a remarkable demonstration of grit and determination. Clearly the man possesses a powerful well of courage. Where was that steely force when Illinois voters needed it? Kirk will claim that he’s been courageous in taking a stand with Democratic Senator Menendez to impose sanctions on Iran. What courage does that take exactly? What powerful, well-funded lobby supports Iran in Washington? In Washington, “taking on Iran” is about as courageous as taunting an asthmatic kid on the playground. It would take actual courage for a Republican Senator to champion a rational response to climate change or gun violence. That is the force Illinois voters thought Kirk would bring to bear on their behalf in the Senate. Instead, Kirk has trained his courage on a politically impotent force, one of the least popular countries on the planet. Kirk has reserved his courage for political targets that won’t fight back. In private, sensible Republicans who occupy influential positions in Washington will claim that they are doing all they can. They will claim that they are carefully picking their battles. Climate change, immigration reform, and restructuring the tax code are issues they would like to push forward, but the party at the national level is not ready for sound solutions. These timid moderates are right about the party’s serious problems. Their complicity is making the party’s sickness more severe. Sensible figures like Susan Collins and Mark Kirk have come to play a toxic, enabling role in the GOP’s descent into madness. Their placid party loyalty lends credibility to outlandish characters like Louie Gohmert, Ted Cruz, Steve King and Donald Trump. Republican leaders like Kirk cannot continue to evade responsibility for the extremism they legitimize. Until someone in the Republican Party is willing to take a visible, courageous stand for sanity in the style of John McCain circa 2000, there is no reason to keep electing them. Any vote for a supposedly “sane” or “reasonable” Republican unwilling to confront the party’s extremes is a vote for those extremes. Electing Mark Kirk is a mistake Illinois voters are unlikely to repeat.)

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/03/opinion/the-case-for-bureaucracy.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Internal Revenue Service, for example, offers a compelling case for adding professionals. Mr. Trump talks about raising revenue by collecting unpaid taxes, and according to the I.R.S., the “tax gap” of unpaid but owed taxes is some $400 billion. If only 20 percent of that could be collected, it would yield substantial funds. But we need agents to collect these owed taxes and to perform audits. Historically, I.R.S. employees have returned many times the dollar amount invested in their salaries and benefits. The audit rate is now at a record low, however, and the I.R.S. relies increasingly on a tradition of voluntary taxpayer compliance, which is waning. (We can only imagine what a President Trump, who seems to boast about not paying taxes, would do to that tradition.) Moreover, another of Mr. Trump’s proposed revenue sources, stopping improper payments, would also be aided by more I.R.S. agents. The Government Accountability Office has shown that billions of dollars are paid to those who hack into taxpayers’ accounts and divert refunds. Existing staff members simply can’t keep up with these technologically sophisticated perpetrators of fraud. More professionals, schooled in cybersecurity, are called for. There is a common misconception that our bureaucracy has grown out of control. The federal civilian work force (excepting Postal Service employees) is about two million, roughly the same size it was during the Kennedy administration. In effect, the Civil Service has drastically shrunk since then, for the gross domestic product has multiplied five times, and numerous new agencies (like the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Homeland Security) have added significant and complicated missions to the federal agenda. Because of a shortage of federal positions, the only way these agencies could be staffed was by adding contractors, who, according to one estimate, now exceed the number of federal workers by a factor of four. These contractors, who are often more costly than a government counterpart would be, operate under increasingly thin federal management and scrutiny. The political scientist John J. DiIulio Jr. calls this “leviathan by proxy.” There are not only constitutional concerns but also management problems with contractors performing what are deemed by statute and regulations to be “inherent government functions.” These are functions that should not be outsourced. But when they are, it leads to further inefficiencies.)

CBS MINNESOTA
— College Republicans Paint Controversial Mural On U Of M Bridge
http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2016/10/01/u-of-m-trump-mural/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A student group’s mural on the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus has ignited conversation and controversy. The U of M College Republicans group painted a mural yesterday in the group’s designated spot along the Washington Avenue Bridge. Dozens of student groups paint murals along the inside walls of the pedestrian level of the bridge every fall. This group’s read in part “Build The Wall,” which refers to presidential candidate Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. The sign was later vandalized with the words “Stop White Supremacy.” Multicultural groups who did not support the vandalism later gathered to protest what they called “anti-immigrant” hate speech. “There’s freedom of speech but then there’s hate speech. It’s one thing to be conservative and it’s another thing to be saying these things that are clearly xenophobic and targeting specific groups of people,” Guillermo Perez said. Perez is a member of Sigma Lambda Beta, a Latino-based multicultural fraternity that happens to have the panel next to the College Republicans. “I was really angry, angry because it’s an attack to my people because I am Mexican,” Perez said. The group responded using its own panel, which said, “Building bridges, not walls.” “We’re trying to seek, at the very least, an apology and recognition that what they did was wrong,” Perez said. U of M President Eric Kaler said while some may find the initial message offensive it is protected speech and should not have been vandalized. He released a statement saying: “During the annual ‘Paint the Bridge’ event, an opportunity for registered student groups and University departments to promote their groups by painting a panel on the Washington Avenue Bridge, one panel assigned to a student group has received attention. The panel includes the phrase from Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, ‘Build the wall.’ While this is protected as free, political speech, we have heard from members of our community who find the phrase hurtful, offensive, anti-immigrant, and anti-Latinx. “People in our community may disagree with the sentiment expressed. However, while the University values free speech, the subsequent vandalism of the panel is not the way to advance a conversation. “The University of Minnesota supports a campus climate that welcomes all members of our community and our values of equity and diversity, but that also ensures the free flow of ideas, even those that are offensive to some. As students and our community participate in responses to this and future issues, I urge all of us to be respectful and thoughtful in our approach. We encourage all who find some protected speech distasteful or offensive to engage in more protected speech.” The College Republicans also released a statement Saturday. “We find it highly disturbing that someone would vandalize a simple statement such as ‘build the wall’. “We have received comments on the painting, falsely accusing us of being racist, xenophobic, and anti-immigrant. Our party’s nominee supports building a wall on the Mexican border to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into this country. We understand that some students may disagree with this policy position. However, free speech is at the center of a functioning democracy, and the actions taken against our panels run contrary to free speech. It’s worth noting that numerous politicians from both parties support building a wall on the Mexican border. “President Obama, Vice-President Biden, Secretary Clinton, and Minnesota Governor Dayton have all supported building a wall on the Mexican border while they were U.S. Senators (Secure Fence Act of 2006). We look forward to students writing angry letters and reporting these Democrat politicians to the Bias Incident System for hurting their feelings as well. “Regardless of how one feels about border security or Mr. Donald J. Trump, it is never acceptable to infringe on other people’s freedom of speech. University policy clearly states, ‘Any alteration(s) to any panel by any person(s) outside of these designated time(s) is considered vandalism and subject to University Policy and/or local, state and federal laws.’ “We appreciate President Kaler’s statement of support for our freedom of speech and we expect the university to continue to uphold their commitment to freedom of speech and diversity of thought.”)

— 5 Facts You Didn’t Know About Retirement  Here are some important retirement-related facts about Social Security, long-term care, retirement savings balances, homeownership, and taxes. – Jason Hall
http://www.fool.com/investing/2016/10/02/5-facts-you-didnt-know-about-retirement.aspx
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 3. Average retirement savings will generate less than $500 per month  According to Vanguard, which manages millions of retirement savings accounts, the median balance in defined contribution plans (think 401(k) plans) it manages for people 55 and over was less than $72,000 in 2015. For context, that would only generate about $240 per month in retirement income. This only covers a small selection of total retirement savings, but even as a small sample size it’s concerning. The U.S. Government Accountability Office offers up a bigger picture look, but it’s still concerning. According to the GAO, the median age 55-64 household has $104,000 in retirement savings, while the median age 65-74 household has $148,000 saved. Sure, that’s a lot more than Vanguard’s data, but in terms of dependable retirement income, it’s only worth $347 to $493 per month in retirement income. Paired with an average Social Security benefit of less than $1,500 per month, that’s not a lot of money to live on in retirement. For millions of older Americans, there’s an even bigger concern. The GAO found that 29% of households age 55 and over don’t have any defined benefit (such as a pension) or retirement savings at all.)

BLOOMINGTON PANTAGRAPH
— Local numbers provide context on income issue – Steve Vogel  (DIERSEN: How financially diverse is your county, your township/ward, your municipality, and your precinct?)
http://www.pantagraph.com/news/opinion/vogel-local-numbers-provide-context-on-income-issue/article_333cee83-5535-57c6-bbc7-4d0999fab26e.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to the Economic Policy Institute, a left-leaning Washington think tank, the average 1 percenter family in McLean County earned $679,124 three years ago (the latest data available), while the remaining 99 percent earned an average of $51,440. That means a 1 percenter here makes about 13 times more than the rest of us earn, on average. That ratio puts McLean County pretty much in the middle of a ranking of the nation’s 3,064 counties. Somewhat comforting, I think, especially in the context of some other EPI data. For instance, McLean County’s 1 percenters take in 11.8 percent of the income earned here. That compares with 26 percent in Lake County — the high water mark in Illinois — and the national average of 20.1 percent. The latter two numbers are stunners. A local figure that may trouble egalitarians more is that 41 percent of McLean County’s moolah is made by the top 10 percent of earners. Another way to say that: 10 percent of local households take in 41 cents of every dollar earned here. Yet it’s 57 cents in Lake County, and about 48 cents in all of Illinois and the entire nation. Again, striking numbers. Do you aspire to be a 1 percenter in McLean County? Your family would have to earn at least $365,000 to make the cut — about $24,000 less than the national average. The best (and fresher) news comes from the U.S. Census Bureau. Last year, it says, nearly 5,700 McLean County residents climbed out of poverty. Unfortunately 19,116 McLean County residents are still classified as poor. That’s 11.5 percent of our population — a big number, to be sure, but 3.4 percentage points better than two years ago.)

http://time.com/money/4515096/hillary-clinton-national-service-reserve-millennials/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Hillary Clinton wants you to serve your country. The Democratic presidential candidate proposed a new program on Friday aimed at expanding national service volunteer opportunities–for young Americans in particular. Clinton’s National Service Reserve would allow Americans pitch in with ongoing service projects addressing the addiction epidemic or helping the homeless, or perhaps to help provide emergency relief in national disasters and situations such as the water crisis in Flint, Mich. Clinton plans to work with corporations and universities to ensure “reservists” get paid time off to volunteer or, in the case of students, college credit.)

http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20160930/OPINION/160929765
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Chicago is a city of extremes. It gets very hot and very cold. We have some of the most generous and kind people I know, yet violence is exploding across the city. The tech sector is booming, yet entire swaths of the city have seen little to no new opportunities. Dependent largely upon our skin color and ZIP code—which are inextricably related—Chicagoans are either gaining in educational attainment and benefiting from rising property values and increasing income or they are experiencing the opposite. Make no mistake, the status quo costs us all: Nations with greater inequality tend to have fewer periods of sustained economic growth. Is it a coincidence that Chicago ranks in the bottom third of the world’s largest economies for GDP growth and employment? I have a bias toward optimism and action. Yes, we have problems with racism and inequality. Yes, we have an epidemic of violence. But what can those of us in the business community do about it? One obvious answer lies in jobs.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A House Republican introduced legislation to prevent the U.S. government from granting immigrants citizenship, responding to a report found that several hundred people slated for deportation were accidentally naturalized. The bill, offered by Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) before Congress departed this week for its pre-election recess, would halt any new naturalizations until the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) finishes modernizing its fingerprint record database. A DHS inspector general report made public this month stated that at least 858 people ordered to be deported were mistakenly granted citizenship because their digital fingerprint records weren’t in DHS or FBI databases. Some paper-based fingerprint records weren’t consistently converted into digital form.)

— How Men & Women See the Workplace Differently  A new report finds they have vastly dissimilar perspectives—and experiences—at work. Here’s what companies can do about it. – Nikki Waller  (DIERSEN: My critic/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted a) that instead of me, the Post Office should have hired a woman in 1966, b) that the Post Office should gotten rid of me much sooner than it did so that a woman could have my job, c) that instead of me, IRS should have hired a woman in 1971, d) that instead of me, IRS should have promoted women in 1972, 1973, and 1974, e) that instead of me, GAO should have hired a woman in 1980, f) that instead of me, GAO should have promoted a woman in 1986, and g) that GAO should gotten rid of me much sooner than it did so that a woman could have my job and my preferred corner office.)
http://www.wsj.com/articles/how-men-women-see-the-workplace-differently-1474970085
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Men and women go to the same business meetings, have the same colleagues, strive for the same jobs up the ladder. Yet a major new study by LeanIn.Org and McKinsey & Co. shows that men still get more promotions, more challenging assignments and more access to top leaders. And while growing numbers of women are negotiating for raises and promotions, they also face pushback when they do. A Journal Report looks at the different worlds that men and women inhabit at work—and what can be done to make them more equal.)
