(COMMENT: GAO works for Congress. In Diersen v. GAO, my Democrat GAO superiors hinted/implied/argued/shouted that they treated me just like Congress want them to treat GAO employees who complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination and who had become an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $20,361 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

— JANUARY 22, 2014 FLASHBACK: What is a Precinct Committeeman? – Doug Ibendahl
(COMMENT: I have been a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999. I should write a book about how the following treat Republican Precinct Committeemen: past and present a) leaders of the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), b) Republican leaders of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton, c) conservative leaders, d) religious leaders, and e) Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct, their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers. Since 1999, I have had the best record by far for attending MTRO meetings and events. I served as the MTRO webmaster 2000-2004 and 2008-2010. I ran for the open MTRO Treasurer office in 2004. I served on the IRP Platform and Resolutions Committee in 2008. I have attended all the IRP state conventions since 2000. Between 2005 and 2019 I raised many thousands of dollars from many scores of Republican candidates, elected officials, and party leaders so that Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks. All five announced Republican U.S. Senate candidates attended a picnic that I organized in my precinct in 2003. I organized Wheaton’s 2004 and 2005 9/11 ceremonies. I have served as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000.)

— Diversity is not new to America – MICHAEL BARONE
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/restoring-america/equality-not-elitism/diversity-is-not-new-to-america
(FROM THE ARTICLE: When George Washington took command of the Continental Army in 1775, he immediately noted the differences in attitudes and behavior between New England Yankees and his fellow Virginians. In Federalist No. 60, written in 1788, Alexander Hamilton wrote of the “diversity in the state of property, in the genius, manners, and habits of the people of the different parts of the Union.” The founders lived when memory was fresh of how religious wars wore apart much of Europe and the British Isles. They knew that Massachusetts was founded by Calvinists, Virginia by Anglicans, Maryland by Catholics, and Pennsylvania by Quakers. The Articles of Confederation they drew up to govern their revolution against Britain purposely gave the states maximum autonomy. The framers of the Constitution aimed to create a more powerful federal government, but with limited powers. “No religious test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States,” they wrote in Article VI, fully aware of religious tests in Britain and Europe.)

NEW JERSEY 101.5
— NEW JERSEY IS OPENLY ENGAGING IN SYSTEMIC RACISM – Dennis Malloy
https://nj1015.com/new-jersey-is-openly-engaging-in-systemic-racism-opinion/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The term “systemic racism” has been tossed around a lot, especially in the last few years. Most of it is just hyperbolic, overheated rhetoric used by some to gain more power or political advantage. No evidence seems to exist in the way the term is being used by many, other than affirmative action, where race is used for preferential treatment in education and employment. Now the state of New Jersey is doubling down and promoting a more aggressive and blatant form of racism. At least one state agency has told its members not to participate as a speaker in any conference that is being given by only white males. The New Jersey Economic Development Authority put out this statement in response to our newsroom. “Under most circumstances, NJEDA staff should not participate when the panel/speakers are wholly comprised of white males. If staff are asked to participate in such a panel, they should inform the requester of NJEDA’s policy and, if appropriate, may suggest additional, diverse speakers.” Of course, that kind of directive would not be acceptable directed toward any other group. But the answer to racial prejudice or unfair treatment is not more of the same poison. It’s doubtful that if a panel happens to be composed of white males that other people from other groups were excluded for their race or gender. But this kind of policy supposes so, and therefore engages in racial animus and promotes division and resentment among people, who should have one purpose in mind: to get the job done well.)

AMERICAN LAWYER
— Law Firms Are Willing to Pay for More Diverse Lateral Candidates, Raising Questions for Recruiters – Patrick Smith
(COMMENT: In 1980, when I was 31 years old, the Democrats who ran GAO forced me to take a $20,361/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars, that is, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 (currently $97,395) to GS-9 Step 10 (currently $77,034/year) to transfer from IRS. If I had been a Democrat, minority, and/or female, GAO would have given me a promotion to GS-13 (currently $102,188/year) to transfer. GAO audits IRS. I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels (currently $85,935-$97,395/year). I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul. I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976.)

DAILY HERALD
— DuPage Regional Office of Education starts new work-based learning program for high school students – Luann Doman
(COMMENT: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. Did you work while you were in high school, and if so, how did that impact the rest of your life? During my junior and seniors years and the summer in between at Crete-Monee High School 1964-1966, I washed dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights. During the summer of 1966, I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline. While the money that I earned washing dishes enabled me to buy a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint (a poor man’s GTO) in May of 1966 to commute to/from classes at UIC from my parents’ home in Crete, the stigma of my having had such “bad jobs” was significant. I delivered mail for the Park Forest Post Office 1966-1969 while I attended UIC 1966-1968 and NIU in 1969. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted a) that they would never have stooped to take those jobs and b) that my having taken those jobs proves that I am a disgusting loser.)

Therefore, ever-increasingly, articles linked in my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters are depressing for Republicans in the aforesaid. Far too many of my critics/opponents in the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) talk and/or act like they a) believe that “ignorance is bliss” and b) believe in “shooting the messenger.” They do not want me to include links in the newsletters to articles that they do not like. Ever-increasingly, they blame me and blame my newsletters for the problems that the IRP, DCRCC, and MTRO have. Ever-increasing, they blame me and blame my newsletters for losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct suffer.

— Vietnam’s class war and our wars – DAVID PAUL KUHN
(DIERSEN: What was the biggest mistake that you have made in your life? For me, it was my avoiding the draft. I got student draft deferments 1966-1971 and a financial hardship draft deferment 1970-1971. I should write a book about those who have used my avoiding the draft against me the most. I would focus on the adverse actions that a) my Democrat Post Office superiors 1966-1969, b) my Democrat Firestone superior 1970-1972, c) my Democrat IRS superiors 1971-1980, and d) my Democrat GAO superiors 1980-1997 took against me.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/opinion/commentary/ct-opinion-vietnam-class-war-college-deferments-20211001-imtjszj7wnfuze3kjxgiz5p3oy-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A half-century ago, the cruelest case of legalized class privilege in modern American life was abolished. For America’s “fortunate sons” and future leaders, attending college was such a common route to avoid the Vietnam draft, though the policy’s inequity is now conveniently relegated to the footnotes of that fraught era. Unlike any war since the Civil War, Vietnam asked the least of those who came from more. The war’s unjust burden combined with how the anti-war movement manifested on college campuses — especially elite campuses — led Vietnam to play an early role forming a class and cultural fault line that severs us still. Most of the era’s youth who came to lead us had a student deferment — including Presidents Joe Biden, Donald Trump and Bill Clinton and Vice President Dick Cheney. Other privileged sons, such as President George W. Bush, avoided combat by attaining a coveted National Guard slot. Educational deferments were the lion’s share of the more than 15 million men who legally evaded conscription. College graduates were roughly 6.5 times less likely to serve in Vietnam than other civilians of the same generation. (High school dropouts were twice as likely.) Fewer than a fifth of those with a student deferment came from modest circumstances. By comparison, 7 of 8 protesters in this era had at least one year of higher education. A century after elites lawfully avoided the Union and Confederate drafts, there was again an understanding that only a certain sort did most of America’s fighting and dying in war. As Vietnam escalated in 1967, a majority of male collegians — and half of all students — considered themselves a war “hawk,” but two-thirds of them objected to “the same proportion of college students” being drafted as non-college youth. Rifts within that ’60s generation lingered largely ignored while, polls show, the “generation gap” was overhyped. Blue-collar whites, in particular, were not more supportive of the war than upscale whites but they were exceptionally critical of the anti-war movement. It was their kin and kind shouldering the bulk of the fighting in Vietnam. Because the wealthy were almost exclusively white, white soldiers were “actually more likely than Black veterans to be drawn disproportionately from the working class,” as one study noted. In fact, from their sense of “lost status” to most veterans’ low opinion of “draft dodgers,” veterans’ views were more divided by class than by race. Many of them resented “good boys” marred by the “bad war” and campus activists who lectured those with less status about social justice, even as their college sanctuary meant lowlier boys might die in their place. After the war, James Fallows challenged the “bright people of my generation who made a cult of their high-mindedness” but “willingly took advantage of this most brutal form of class discrimination.” At Boston’s Navy Yard in 1969, Fallows saw his fellow Harvard and MIT students “deliberately failing (their) colorblindness tests,” even as the next bus of the “white proles of Boston” arrived. “We knew now who would be killed.” Yet here we are, recently witnessing the end of another war that went on too long and asked too much of too few. The soldiers of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars disproportionately hailed from veterans’ families and, as with Vietnam, rural areas. Today’s leaders hardly bat an eye at how the coastal enclaves that steward our politics, economics and culture contribute little per capita to the military power that, whatever its mistakes, helps secure their dominance. Our small warrior class does choose to enlist. Though circumstances impact that choice. Struggling youth often still risk the worst in war to get somewhere better in life. Yet most Americans who served and died in Vietnam were also volunteers. And conscription, however divisive, lessened the class divide. The potential to be drafted also invested America in the war’s tragedy, unlike our 9/11 wars. Still, even when the affluent served, they were the least likely to see combat. Draft resistance almost always paid off for those who could pay (for college or a draft-law lawyer). Occupational deferments favored upscale fields. This overall inequity sparked an under-discussed class war that boiled beneath the real war and exacerbated America’s emerging culture war. It also portended a working-class outlook that they bore unfair stigmas and unjust burdens. “The critics are picking on us, just ‘cause we had to fight this war. Where were their sons? In fancy colleges? Where were the sons of all the big shots who supported the war,” one Vietnam veteran asked in Murray Polner’s book “No Victory Parades.” “For every guy who resists the draft one of us gotta go.” After witnessing a protest, the veteran added: “One of their signs read: ‘We’ve already given enough.’ And I thought, ‘What have they given?’” Near the war’s end, David Broder read the book and wrote that it highlighted what we “prefer not to think about … the least democratic war of our century. There was no equality of sacrifice.” Fallows later asked, “Why … especially in the atmosphere of the late sixties, people with any presumptions to character could have let it go on?” And in some sense, why do we still?)
