WASHINGTON POST
— A library wanted a New York Times subscription. Officials refused, citing Trump and ‘fake news.’ – Antonia Noori Farzan (DIERSEN: If you were me, what would you do encourage Republican Party leaders in Illinois to encourage Republicans in Illinois to read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails?) 
https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/11/05/new-york-times-citrus-county-florida-library-subscription-rejected-fake-news/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The librarians of Citrus County, Fla., had what seemed like a modest wish: A digital subscription to the New York Times. For about $2,700 annually, they reasoned, they could offer their roughly 70,000 patrons an easy way to research and catch up on the news. But when their request came before the Citrus County commission last month, local officials literally laughed out loud. One commissioner, Scott Carnahan, declared the paper to be “fake news.” “I agree with President Trump,” he said. “I will not be voting for this. I don’t want the New York Times in this county.” In a move that is generating intense online backlash, all five members of the commission agreed to reject the library’s request. The discussion took place Oct. 24, the same day the Trump administration announced plans to cancel federal agencies’ subscriptions to the Times and The Washington Post. While there’s no apparent connection — the Citrus County meeting began several hours before the Wall Street Journal broke the news of the new edict — the controversy unfolding in central Florida highlights how politicians nationwide are parroting the president’s disparaging rhetoric about the media.)

— Dear millennials, now is the time to invest in your unexpected future – JERRY DAVICH (DIERSEN: According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who saved far less for their retirement than I did, I was able to do save more for my retirement because I avoided the draft, the federal government grossly overpaid me, I had good health, I paid less federal income tax by itemizing, my wife had a good job, we gave up trying to have children, we did not adopt, we did not become foster parents, I did not give lots of money to churches like they did, etc.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/post-tribune/opinion/ct-ptb-davich-saving-for-retirement-while-young-st-1030-20191029-ljhsqft2drg2veqxg2zxbmmpmy-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: One hundred dollars a month. This was how much money my financial adviser told me to save, back when I was in my 20s and 30s. “Damn it, Jerry, if you do this you’ll have a retirement nest egg waiting for you 30 years from now,” George Wilson told me sternly. He was one of my father’s poker buddies who once sold me a life insurance policy. He was intimidating and outspoken. He also was 100% right. Wilson tried slipping me a proverbial ace in the hole for my losing hand of cards in life. I was too stupid and shortsighted to accept it. After a few years of scraping together $100 each month to pay into this seemingly mythical retirement fund, I stopped contributing. I eventually cashed it in to pay off some credit card bills, telling myself that I couldn’t afford it any longer. It was the cheapest rationalization I could afford back then. At that point in my life, I was earning a meager income in a family food business, I had two young children, and I was already thinking of cashing in my marriage. Putting away $100 a month, every month for 30-plus years, seemed impossible. My wiser self in the future has never forgiven my stupid self from the past. In my younger days, I likely spent $100 a month on “must have” purchases – my Coca-Cola addiction, drive-through junk food, weekend entertainment in Chicago, a massive collection of music cassettes and CDs, you name it. These unnecessary expenditures, in hindsight, have only compounded my anger toward myself. I try to keep this in mind when I now hear about millennials who believe retirement savings is a myth or a rumor they’ve been told by gray-haired geezers like me. What do we know, right? In my 20s, I thought the same thing about “old man Wilson,” who was only in his 40s at the time. He seemed to be in his 70s or 80s. (He’s still around. Please don’t tell him.) Youth has a way of distorting our perception of life. We had more answers than questions. We had more time than money. We had more reasons to not think about getting older, getting unhealthy, or getting prepared for retirement. It all seemed so… impossible, or at least improbable. As if it would never happen.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Chicago teachers can save 244 unused sick days, retire early under new contract The tentative agreement raises the cap on accrued sick days from 40 to 244; some longtime teachers could use those days to retire a year early and still collect their full pension. – Matthew Hendrickson (DIERSEN: Almost all of my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government took many more sick days than I did. Starting in 1966, when I was 18 years old, they made it very clear that they did NOT want me to take any sick days. They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I should NOT get that benefit for many reasons including I avoided the draft, had good health, was non-poor, had more education, professional certifications and/or licenses than they did, was Republican, was conservative, was Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), was 100% German American, my wife had a good job, we gave up trying to have children, we did not adopt, we did not become foster parents, and/or my ancestors have been in America since 1844. Nevertheless, they are furious that my Civil Service Retirement System pension is higher because of my many used sick days.)

https://chicago.suntimes.com/columnists/2019/10/27/20932730/laura-washington-trump-chicago-visit
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In March 2016, then-candidate Trump was virtually run out of Chi-Town in the wake of a highly touted campaign event. Trump was set to appear before 10,000-strong at a “Make America Great Again” rally at the UIC Pavilion on the near West Side. Inside, the stadium was packed with rowdy masses of supporters inside. Uber-angry masses of protestors marched outside to decry what they viewed as a racist, xenophobic and misogynist campaign. Shortly before Trump’s scheduled appearance, his campaign cancelled, citing safety concerns. Fraidy cat.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Former White House chief of staff John Kelly says he warned Trump on impeachment – AP (DIERSEN: No one has ever accused me of being a yes-man. If I had been a yes-man, the federal government would have promoted me into its Senior Executive Service long before I was 40 years old. Yes-men help the federal government get rid of its employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who did not make GS-13 (currently $98,198) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $116,040) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $136,495) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $165,500) by age 40.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/sns-bc-us–trump-kelly-20191027-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Donald Trump ‘s former chief of staff, John Kelly , says he advised the president not to fill the job with someone who wouldn’t be honest with him and provide a check on his impulses because he would end up being impeached. “That was almost 11 months ago, and I have an awful lot of, to say the least, second thoughts about leaving,” Kelly told the Washington Examiner. “It pains me to see what’s going on because I believe if I was still there or someone like me was there, he would not be kind of, all over the place.” “I said, whatever you do — and we were still in the process of trying to find someone to take my place — I said whatever you do, don’t hire a ‘yes man,’ someone who won’t tell you the truth — don’t do that. Because if you do, I believe you will be impeached,” Kelly recalled in an interview at the Sea Island Summit, a political conference hosted by the Examiner. Kelly said he does not believe the president would be in his current predicament if he had stayed as chief of staff. White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement of her own Saturday: “I worked with John Kelly, and he was totally unequipped to handle the genius of our great President.” Trump pushed back on Kelly’s comments in a statement: “John Kelly never said that, he never said anything like that. If he would have said that, I would have thrown him out of the office. He just wants to come back into the action like everybody else does.”)

— The Widening Gap Between the Super-Rich and Other Americans – Dr. Lawrence Wittner (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents side with the super-rich. My critics/opponents have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I was overpaid. In today’s dollars, I earned $46,554 when I was 22, $56,945 when I was 23, $68,897 when I was 24, $82,579 when I was 25, $93,592 when I was 30, $98,198 when I was 38, and $127,654 when I was 49. In my defense, I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In August 2019, the Economic Policy Institute reported that, in 2018, the average pay of CEOs at America’s 350 top firms hit $17.2 million―an increase, when adjusted for inflation, of 1,007.5 percent since 1978. By contrast, the typical worker’s wage, adjusted for inflation, grew by only 11.9 percent over this 40-year period. In 1965, the ratio of CEO-to-worker’s pay stood at 20-to-1; by 2018 (when CEOs received another hefty pay raise and workers received a 0.2 percent pay cut), it had reached 278-to-1. An AFL-CIO study, released in June 2019, had similar findings. Examining compensation at Standard & Poors 500 companies, the labor federation reported that average CEO pay in 2018 had increased by $5.2 million over the preceding 10 years. This resulted in an average CEO-to-worker pay ratio of 287-to-1. These figures, of course, are only averages, and at numerous major corporations, the economic gap between boss and worker is much greater. According to the AFL-CIO, the CEO-to-worker pay ratio at Walmart (America’s largest private employer) is 1,076 to 1, at Walt Disney Company 1,424-to-1, at McDonald’s 2,124-to-1, and at Gap 3,566-to-1. At 49 S&P 500 firms, noted an Institute for Policy Studies report, half the work force―that is, 3.7 million employees―received wages below the official U.S. poverty line for a family of four.)

I could have done much better in the organizations that I am/were a member of if I had a) found out who had the most clout in those organizations, b) glorified and praised them, c) pandered to them, d) served as their operative or dupe, and/or e) given them money.)
