https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20191106/naperville-police-chief-no-evidence-of-hate-crime-in-buffalo-wild-wings-incident
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The confrontation was triggered by a white man, who officials have not identified, whose comments led managers at the restaurant to ask the party of 18 to move. Fuller said the man, who does not live in Naperville, has been notified he is banned from all Buffalo Wild Wings locations and the company is working on protocol to ensure the ban is enforced “within the bounds of the law.” . . . Buffalo Wild Wings says the managers — both women, one black, one white — were fired after the company’s internal investigation. Fuller said the host involved is a black man who quit his job the evening of the confrontation. . .Buffalo Wild Wings already was in the process of rolling out a diversity and sensitivity campaign and training program called RESPECT, Fuller said. A poster in the back of the restaurant was in place and the company is taking steps to begin enhanced training. Fuller, along with Buffalo Wild Wings President Lyle Tick and a regional manager, met Tuesday with Naperville Mayor Steve Chirico and city council member Benjamin White. “They were very forthright. They described their internal investigation and their decision to remove the employees who were removed,” Chirico said. “They apologized for the painful experience for the families as well as the image of the city.” White said the community “is taking a hit” from the fact the encounter occurred within its boundaries. “People are asking me, ‘Are we a racist town?'” White said. “I don’t want it to give a false perception of our community.”)

— 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.)

The Phoenix New Times posted audio of a July 15 speech during which state Sen. Sylvia Allen said a flood of immigration and low birth rates among whites amid a lack cultural assimilation mean “we’re going to look like South American countries very quickly.” The Republican from Snowflake, Arizona, who is white, also said the U.S. has to regulate immigration so the country can provide jobs, education, health care and other needs. “We can’t provide that if people are just flooding us and flooding us and flooding us and overwhelming us,” she said.)

BREITBART
— Resident of Baltimore Agrees with Trump: Cummings ‘Hasn’t Done Anything for Us’ – HANNAH BLEAU (DIERSEN: What has your Republican Precinct Committeeman done for the Republican voters in your precinct? Since 2000, I have made GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails available to the Republican voters in my precinct. Those emails have gone out each and every morning since 2004, and each and every evening too since 2015. Since 2004, those emails have included links to more than 341,800 articles and information on many upcoming events. Since 1999, I have kept the Republican voters in my precinct informed of who the Republican candidates were and how many votes they received in the precinct. Since 1999, I have circulated petitions for all the Republican candidates, distributed their literature, and encouraged the voters in the precinct to vote for them. Further, I have the best record by far since 1999 for attending Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) meetings and fundraisers. I served as the MTRCC webmaster 2000-2004 and 2008-2010. I save attended all the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Conventions as a Delegate since 2000 and I served on the 2008 IRP Platform and Resolutions Committee. Further, since 2005, I have raised funds from Republican candidates, elected officials, and party leaders to help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks. In the process of doing the aforesaid, I have come to know all the Republicans at the federal, state, county, township, and city levels who serve my precinct.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— U.S. Rep. Sean Casten backs Trump impeachment inquiry, sparking campaign issue in once strongly Republican district – RICK PEARSON
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-sean-casten-donald-trump-impeachment-20190620-cle5i6byj5cjlkxb3pegoc3tpu-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Casten was one of two Democrats to flip traditionally Republican seats in 2018, defeating six-term Republican U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam of Wheaton 54 percent to 46 percent, a margin of 22,556 votes out of more than 315,000 ballots cast in the 6th Congressional District. The district includes what once was the heart of suburban Republicanism. But GOP support in DuPage County has been gradually eroding — in 2016 a majority of DuPage voters backed Democrat Hillary Clinton for president, and in 2018 they supported Democrat J.B. Pritzker for governor. Casten becomes the third House Democrat from a competitive district to back an impeachment inquiry in recent days, joining U.S. Reps. Katie Porter of California and Tom Malinowski of New Jersey. They are among 44 legislators the DCCC says represent districts that are key to maintaining a House majority in 2020. U.S. Rep. Lauren Underwood of Naperville, the other Democrat who flipped an Illinois suburban seat in 2018 by defeating Republican U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren of Plano, has supported the House leadership efforts to further investigations into Trump in lieu of opening impeachment proceedings.)
