RIVER BENDER
— With Application Deadline Approaching, Duckworth Seeks Additional Student Applications For U.S. Military Service Academies
(DIERSEN: Were you an outstanding Illinois student? I was not. I just barely made it into the top 20% of my high school class in 1966. My ACT score  was only 24. Further, a) my eyesight could not be corrected to 20/20, b) I had partial red/green color blindness, and c) I could not run because I had Osgood-Schlatter disease (SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osgood%E2%80%93Schlatter_disease ). Further, I did not demonstrate leadership ability. I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; pumped gasoline 1971-1972; and collected delinquent taxes for IRS 1971-1980.)
https://www.riverbender.com/articles/details/with-application-deadline-approaching-duckworth-seeks-additional-student-applications-for-us-military-service-academies-53303.cfm
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Each year Duckworth, with the assistance of a nomination committee, selects from the applicants a group of outstanding Illinois students to receive Congressional nominations to attend West Point, the Air Force Academy, the Naval Academy, or the Merchant Marine Academy. “It takes a special kind of young person to succeed at a U.S. Military Service Academy,” said Duckworth. “The rigorous nomination process demands outstanding test scores, a high GPA, and a commitment to community service. I encourage all interested Illinois students to apply for a nomination, and I applaud their desire to serve our country.” Service academies allow young people to serve their country while receiving a full four-year scholarship. Upon acceptance of an appointment into an Academy, a student commits to five years of active duty service after graduation. U.S. citizens between the ages of 17 and 23 may receive appointments from one of the four service academies. In order to be considered, a student must get a formal nomination from their Member of Congress, Senator, or the Vice President.)

— Unfair retirement cuts – James Glover, President, Chapter 1309
(COMMENT: I am one of those 99,640. My Social Security is $365 less each month because I get a Civil Service Retirement System pension. I paid Social Security taxes while I washed dishes, cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, pumped gasoline, delivered mail, worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard, sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances, etc. 1964-1974.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20210902/unfair-retirement-cuts
(FROM THE LETTER: I am a retired federal employee who loses $500 per month from my earned Social Security benefit. In 1984, Congress unfairly reduced public employee SSA pensions by two-thirds of the benefit earned and promised for no reason other than to save SSA money. No other category of pensions was reduced. We urge Congress to pass HR 82 and S1302 to remedy this unjust treatment. This unfair law adversely affects 99,640 citizens in Illinois and needs to be repealed so we can get the same benefits earned like everyone else.)

(COMMENT: I should write a book about my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government who worked the hardest to turn my many Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates who were Jewish against me. They stressed that I was baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, that I was 100% German national origin, that I was conservative, that I was Republican, that I lived in Crete 1948-1972, and that I have lived in Wheaton since 1978. In my defense, I stressed that all my ancestors immigrated during the 1840s and 1850s, that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans in WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII, and that my father would have fought the Germans during WWII if he had not been 4-F. Virtually all my Democrat superiors in the federal government who took adverse actions against me were Jewish.)

https://townhall.com/columnists/benshapiro/2021/08/18/the-fight-over-identity-n2594324
(FROM THE ARTICLE: America has been wrecked on the shoals of identity. Identity politics has been characterized casually as a form of tribalism: Americans grouping themselves according to biological or sexual characteristics, in opposition to other groups associated by biological or sexual characteristics. And there is certainly truth to the idea that such tribalism has damaged America in extraordinary ways — that tribalism acts as the sort of factionalism the founding fathers feared, tearing Americans from each other and forcing them into polarized units competing against others in a battle over control. But there is another form of identity politics even more sinister than the sort of tribalism we see so openly today. That is a form of identity politics that focuses less on politics than on identity: the redefinition of identity itself.)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— Biden is responsible for the ‘systemic racism’ he professes to oppose – Zachary Faria
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/biden-is-responsible-for-the-systemic-racism-he-professes-to-oppose
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to the Urban Institute, black and Hispanic landlords have lower incomes and own fewer properties than their white counterparts. They are also “more likely to have a mortgage than own their building outright” and make up a disproportionate number of the landlords who have at least one mortgage in forbearance. This isn’t the first time that Biden, who professes to care so much about equity, has pushed damaging policies that disproportionately harm minorities. Biden’s Title IX changes, which treat students accused of sexual misconduct as guilty until proven, also disproportionately harm black college students. The systemic racism Biden has warned so much about is coming from inside the White House. In pursuing policies that make liberals feel good but are damaging when put in place, as both the eviction moratorium and Title IX changes are, Biden is perpetuating the very problem he claims to be so concerned about. The narrative around systemic racism somehow does not apply to these Democratic policies, proving once again that it is a political narrative and nothing more. That will remain true the next time Biden takes the podium to denounce another GOP voting law as being a new version of Jim Crow.)

— The critical race theory haters are blind to savage structural inequalities in our public schools – DAN WEISBERG
(DIERSEN: My parents sent me to a) Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961, b) Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod, and c) Crete-Monee High School 1962-1966. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I had tremendous unfair advantages in life. If that is true, why did I take BAD JOBS that they would never stoop to take? I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; pumped gasoline 1971-1972; collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980; and audited federal agencies 1980-1997. They hint/imply/argue/shout that I took those BAD JOBS because I am lazy and stupid. 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. Further, in my defense, those who hired me and those who promoted me in 1972, 1973, 1974, and 1986 were under tremendous pressure from Democrat politicians to hire and promote Democrats, and especially Democrats who were minority, female, younger, and/or veteran.)

https://theintercept.com/2021/08/14/laura-ingraham-capitalists-labor/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: THURSDAY NIGHT on Fox News, Laura Ingraham straightforwardly expressed the key challenge for capitalism: How can bosses get people to do awful, degrading jobs for little pay in order to make other people rich? “The government is literally putting anvils, in many ways, on people’s shoulders, either through the mandates, regulations, and now through free money,” Ingraham said to her guest, reality TV host Jon Taffer. “If we are not causing people to be hungry to work, then we’re providing them with all the meals they need sitting at home,” Taffer agreed. “These benefits make absolutely no sense to us.” Capitalism has been grappling with this problem for hundreds of years, but as history and Ingraham show, the answer now is the same as it’s always been: The laboring classes must be forced into circumstances in which they must work or starve.)

I should write a book about those who have demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me the most for my using my time and money to a) earn an MBA from Loyola in 1976, b) pass the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, c) earn a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, d) pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, e) become a licensed CPA in 1981, and f) earn a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997. I would focus on my Democrat IRS and GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates who spent lots of their time and lots of their money on immediate pleasures.)
