BELLEVILLE NEWS DEMOCRAT
— St. Clair County plans to increase spending and tax revenue. How will it affect you? – KAVAHN MANSOURI (DIERSEN: Today, I received a notice from the DuPage County Supervisor of Assessments that the assessed valuation for my home at 915 Cove Court in Wheaton has been increased by 4.75%. Sadly, I doubt very much that I could sell the home for its new $515,750 “implied fair market value.) 
https://www.bnd.com/news/politics-government/article238043234.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: From 2017 to 2018, the county’s equalized assessed valuation, or the assessed value of all property, increased by about $5.1 million, or by roughly 3.17 percent. The county budget is partially designed around what officials expect to collect through property taxes. According to the St. Clair County treasurer’s office, the property tax cycle is a two-year cycle. Over the first year, the property is assigned a value reflecting its value as of Jan. 1. The tax bills are then calculated mailed and payments are distributed in the following year. Evaluation and collecting property taxes is a six-step process, starting with assessment and ending with collection.)

https://qconline.com/opinion/columnists/column-a-rapidly-approaching-future/article_9f5505a5-e611-51f9-94ee-8dd18838b9c2.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: No matter what side you take on Trump Impeachment Theater, or just about any other topic for that matter — from the politics of chicken sandwiches to climate change — if you dare challenge the views of the reigning political priests, chances are you’ll be called stupid and hateful. And someone will want to shut you up. The traditional American response to such silencing has always been: “This is a free country, isn’t it?” But is it now? Or are we building a new “Animal Farm,” where we are told what to think and how to think it? These are the central questions in “No Safe Spaces,” a profoundly important new film about free speech and thought by conservative radio host Dennis Prager and Adam Carolla, the libertarian comic and podcast superstar.)

— Considering AI In Hiring? As Its Use Grows, So Do The Legal Implications For Employers. – Alonzo Martinez (DIERSEN: All my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always promoted age discrimination a) because they want to get rid of those who are older than they are and/or b) they want to curry favor with those who promote age discrimination. I should write a book about those who took the lead in promoting age discrimination at IRS, GAO, Milton Township Republican Central Committee, American Association of Political Consultants, Illinois Center Right Coalition, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, Illinois, etc.)

https://www.forbes.com/sites/johnmauldin/2019/12/02/americas-full-employment-hides-a-dirty-secret/#9c6e22d7c157
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Should just being “employed” make people/workers happy? On one level, any job is better than no job. But we also derive much of our identities and self-esteem from our work. If you aren’t happy with it, you’re probably not happy generally. Unhappy people can still vote and are often easy marks for shameless politicians to manipulate. Their spending patterns change, too. So it ends up affecting everyone and everything. Unhappy Employment There’s this plight of people who, while not necessarily poor, aren’t where they think they should be—and perhaps once were. This disappointment isn’t just in their minds; the economy really has changed. Yes, you can probably get a job if you are physically able, but the odds it will support you and a family, if you have one, are lower than they once were.)

I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: When Hillary called us Deplorable, along with racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, and you name it, we laughed at her. We never cried, and we never demanded a phony apology. We did vow to never, ever vote liberal. Our latest name is Cult, but since we heart our beloved Deplorable name, perhaps Deplorable Cult will stick. And still, we will never, ever vote liberal. The Deplorable Cult has learned to expect truly deplorable behavior from the Democrats.)

And a profession of arms has standards that they have to be held to and they hold themselves to.” Spencer was reacting to President Trump’s statement defending his decision to reverse Gallagher’s demotion.)
