Before that, they stressed that my Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. Before that, they stressed that my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

If I sought a government office or a political office, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would stress that a) my MBA from Loyola is 44 years old, b) my passing the CPA examination on my first attempt is 41 years old, c) my master’s degree in accounting from DePaul is 40 years old, d) my passing the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt is 39 years old, e) my becoming a licensed CPA is 39 years old, f) my master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT is 23 years old, g) my almost 9 years of experience working for IRS is 40 years old, and h) my almost 18 years of experience working for GAO is 23 years old.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann posed a routine question to the lead attorney for President Trump’s election challenge in Pennsylvania: What type of standard should the court use to evaluate the campaign’s claims of fraud in the Nov. 3 presidential election? “Normal one,” responded Rudolph W. Giuliani. Lawyers from coast to coast listening in on Tuesday’s pivotal election fraud hearing in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, cringed at the response from “America’s Mayor,” making his first argument in court in years as he tried to back up Mr. Trump’s claims that the election was stolen from him. There are only three types of standards for review: rational basis, intermediate, and strict scrutiny. Nowhere in law texts is a “normal” review found. At that moment, the trajectory of Mr. Trump’s legal assault on the ballot count came into grim relief and reaffirmed widespread skepticism that the lawsuits — or the legal team pursuing them — will succeed.)

The aforesaid enabled me to graduate debt-free from NIU in 1970 when I was 21 and owning a 1969 Dodge Charger SE.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20201118/statistical-dead-heat-with-75-vote-difference-dupage-auditor-race-could-go-to-recount-
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Anything with big numbers, whether it’s processing checks here at the county or counting votes, there is no system that’s perfect,” Grogan said. “There’s always going to be an error rate, and so we’re just going to go and check out and see if there were errors that constitute more than one one-hundredth of a percent, which is what I lost by.” Grogan could request a so-called discovery recount of ballots in up to 25% of the precincts countywide. The partial recount is conducted to help candidates determine if there are enough discrepancies to seek a court order for a complete recount. . .”I read numbers and understand trends, and it was by the end of election night … a statistical dead heat,” Grogan said. Grogan, a licensed CPA and the president of the Illinois Association of County Auditors, said he’s heard from election lawyers and elected officials from around the state offering to help with a recount process. “I’m both gratified for the people that did support me, and I am gratified for having at least the 12 years to serve,” he said. “And if certain stars align in other ways, if I get to continue to serve, that will be another blessing on top of that.” . . . “I had a lot of crossover votes,” he said. “I got substantially more votes than my party’s top of the ticket, so, I mean I think that appeal was real.” Grogan would have until Nov. 30 to request a discovery recount. Newly elected countywide officials are scheduled to take their seats Dec. 1.)

— Conservatives, beware: The politics of retribution begins now – Editorial
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/nov/10/editorial-the-politics-of-retribution-begins-now/
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: Conservatives, beware — the politics of retribution and score-settling are upon you. If you think for a second that your vote to reelect President Donald Trump was interpreted as a ballot cast for the candidate you believe best championed your everyday concerns of life, liberty and the pursuit of justice, former First Lady Michelle Obama begs to differ. According to her and, one might assume, the DNC apparatus, “tens of millions” of you voted for the president even though it meant “supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division.” Comments like this deserve scorn and are normally best passed over unremarked. Except the sentiments of Mrs. Obama are part of an unsettling indication that unspecified forms of payback are coming. Last week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ominously tweeted: “Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?” And almost as if by sorcery, former staffers of Barack Obama and Pete Buttigieg responded. Why yes, they publicly noted, we are keeping lists, and we call our Little Red Book “The Trump Accountability Project.” The stated purpose of this (vague) initiative is to “Remember what [Trump supporters] did” by compiling a database of the names of anyone who “worked for the Trump for President campaign, Republican National Committee, and affiliated organizations”; those who “worked as political appointees in the Trump Administration”; and “individuals who used their wealth and influence to bundle money for Trump.” Political witch-hunts — straight from Mao Zedong and Pol Pot playbooks, will expand the definition of “Trump supporter.” For a short time, the former Democratic staffers left up the public Excel sheet so interested parties could read the names of the accused in real-time. Tabs for donors, endorsers, appointees, judges, campaign staff — you name it — were all searchable. Access has since been restricted, but will doubtless soon open again to the public. After all, that’s the whole point. To name, shame and enshrine in perpetuity anyone with the slightest affiliation to the Trump administration. So, conservatives, no matter how honorable and kind-hearted you may be, no matter the good you’ve done in the world, the people behind the Trump Accountability Project are here to ensure that future employers, friends, loved ones, strangers, your priest, rabbi, neighbors and, if possible, God himself, know your crimes. Or as NBC’s Jake Tapper recently put it, “I truly sympathize with those dealing with losing — it’s not easy — but at a certain point one has to think not only about what’s best for the nation (peaceful transfer of power) but how any future employers might see your character defined during adversity.” So, the stuff of dystopias is happening. The question, for all Americans, now becomes: What are we going to do about it?)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mayoral and city council hopefuls in DuPage and Kane counties officially launched their campaigns Monday with the start of candidate filing to appear on the spring ballot. In Aurora, the state’s second-largest city, Mayor Richard Irvin will face at least two challengers. Contested city council races also are emerging in Downers Grove, Naperville and Wheaton. . .Four city council seats representing Wheaton’s four voting districts are on the ballot. In the south district, Bill Nieman filed his paperwork in order to claim the first spot on the ballot, followed by Mark Yetsky. Lynn Robbins, who in 2019 was appointed to a 2-year term representing the west district, filed to retain the seat. Scott A. Brown has filed to run for the north district seat. Incumbents Mike Barbier and Christopher Zaruba as well as seven other residents — George Nieman, Scott Weller, David Diersen, Mark Yetsky, Gabrielle Reczek, Scott Brown and Stanley Garrett — have picked up nominating packets from the city clerk’s office but had not yet filed as of Monday afternoon.)

— With the failure of the graduated income tax, will the state finally close some tax loopholes? (DIERSEN: What tax loopholes have your critics/opponents charged you with unfairly, unethically, and/or immorally taking advantage of? Since 1972, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have charged me with unfairly, unethically, and immorally taking advantage of the “education tax deduction loophole.” I deducted job-related graduate business, accounting, and finance courses 1972-1980 and 1992-1997. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes shout that those courses were not job-related, did not help me carry out my job duties, were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and were a distraction.)
