https://thehill.com/homenews/house/533720-republicans-gauge-support-for-trump-impeachment
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Centrist Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), an Iraq and Afghanistan war vet who’s clashed with Trump, has signaled support for impeachment. “I’ll vote the right way, you know, if I’m presented with that,” Kinzinger said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” program. “I just think it’s probably not the smartest move right now, but I think that’s going to be out of my hands.” A day later, after the article of impeachment was introduced, Kinzinger’s spokesman struck a harsher tone and indicated the Illinois Republican may very well vote with Democrats. “Congressman Kinzinger is committed to doing what is right, no matter the political cost. What President Trump did last week was incite violence and encourage a mob to attack the United States Capitol. Clearly, the President violated his oath of office and is unfit to serve,” the spokesman said in a statement. Kinzinger won re-election in November by 29 percentage points.)

https://www.chicagotribune.com/coronavirus/ct-nw-nyt-coronavirus-health-app-20201213-b6xgyjjh5ff6daeyvqielwklju-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But now, just as the United States is preparing to distribute the first vaccines for the virus, the entry ticket to the nation’s reopening is set to come largely in the form of a digital health credential. In the coming weeks, major airlines including United, JetBlue and Lufthansa plan to introduce a health passport app, called CommonPass, that aims to verify passengers’ virus test results — and soon, vaccinations. The app will then issue confirmation codes enabling passengers to board certain international flights. It is just the start of a push for digital COVID-19 credentials that could soon be embraced by employers, schools, summer camps and entertainment venues. “This is likely to be a new normal need that we’re going to have to deal with to control and contain this pandemic,” said Dr. Brad Perkins, the chief medical officer at the Commons Project Foundation, a nonprofit in Geneva that developed the CommonPass app. The advent of electronic vaccination credentials could have a profound effect on efforts to control the coronavirus and restore the economy. They could prompt more employers and college campuses to reopen. They may also give some consumers peace of mind, developers say, by creating an easy way for movie theaters, cruise ships and sports arenas to admit only those with documented coronavirus vaccinations.)

https://www.nationalreview.com/2020/12/the-working-class-party-myth-and-what-really-motivates-voters/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If there is one lesson conservatives claim to have learned from the last few election cycles, it is that the Democrats are the party of elites. In both 2016 and 2020, President Trump performed well among voters, especially non-Hispanic white voters, without a college degree. This has led to some speculation that a class-based realignment is underway. As Senator Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) recently put it, “The future of the [Republican] party is based on a multiethnic, multiracial, working-class coalition.” Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) went further, suggesting that a working-class realignment wasn’t just a goal but had already occurred, claiming that the Democrats had become “the party of the rich.”)

Rising incomes can help make saving more manageable, but they can also mean you will need to replace a larger income once you retire. That is assuming your income continues to increase over time. . .Regardless, plan for a secure financial future, so if for some reason, your income does not increase as much as you expected, you can still afford the lifestyle to which you have grown accustomed.)

https://www.lifezette.com/2020/10/abc-pulls-in-ringers-for-joe-biden-at-town-hall/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: To try at being non-partisan I also feel like Joe Biden’s optimism if he is elected is just as likely not credible in the difference he can make. In other words — for the foreseeable future we seem to be almost for sure living in a continued COVID world for some period between months and years. And just when I thought things were bleak enough, I read the World Health Organization’s assessment back in May of 2020 to which I cannot find a change of opinion published anywhere: “This virus may never go away!”)

— ‘The tyranny of merit’ is tearing America apart – Stan Grant (DIERSEN: According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, I was able to do the following a) only because my parents, my grandparents, my great grandparents, and the rest of my ancestors were not poor and b) only because me, my parents, my grandparents, my great grandparents, and the rest of my ancestors benefitted from discrimination against minorities and against females: 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. In my defense, I was the first of my ancestors to earn a college degree notwithstanding the fact a) that neither of my outstanding parents attended college, b) that my father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma, c) that after fighting type 1 diabetes from age 14, he died suddenly of heart failure in 1969 when he was 47 and I was 21, and d) that my mother never attended high school.)
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-10-18/us-tyranny-of-merit/12774726
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Regardless of who wins the US election, one thing is certain: it will be a victory for the meritocracy. The meritocracy are the elite, the richest, most privileged of Americans who have a stranglehold on power and wealth. Like the aristocracy of old they are distant from the rest of the population, often looking down on them, mocking them or exploiting them. Like the aristocrats they party together, live alongside each other in the same wealthy suburbs and attend the same weddings, even if they supposedly represent different sides of politics. Remember, Bill and Hillary Clinton were guests at the wedding of Donald and Melania Trump. The meritocracy has rigged the game to suit themselves, getting richer while the poor are getting poorer. Their children dominate entry to the best universities, a pathway to the richest careers ensuring this new royalty shores up its status for another generation. So entrenched and immovable is this elite that the Brookings Institution showed that, on current trends, “it would take six generations for family economic advantage to disappear”.)

— What the Coronavirus Means for the Future of Financial Planning It’s time to rethink what our financial goals can and should look like. – Christine Benz
https://www.morningstar.com/features/what-covid-means-for-the-future-of-financial-planning
(FROM THE ARTICLE: How Can You Accommodate Low Yields in a Financial Plan? Finally, retirees of all ages—early or otherwise—have a huge challenge today in the form of very low bond yields, the result of Federal Reserve activity designed to ignite an economy that would otherwise be struggling even more amid the pandemic-related slowdown. . .Moreover, the fact that safe securities yield so little today has contributed to the ascent of higher-risk assets, especially stocks. But even as retirees have gained on one side of the ledger as yields have declined, they’ve lost on the other. Not only do low yields reduce how much retirees can wring from their safe investments, but yields are also predictive of what bonds are apt to return over the next decade. The Bloomberg Barclays Aggregate Index currently has an SEC yield of about 1.3%, suggesting that investors will barely break even assuming even modest levels of inflation.)

VANCOUVER SUN
— NDP, Liberal and Green parties have subtly different plans to keep people safe while campaigning – Lori Culbert (DIERSEN: Of course, ever-increasing, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes hint/imply/argue/shout that because of the pandemic and because of my terrible demographics (old, overweight, White, male, type-2 diabetic, Trump supporter, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owner, Protestant, 100% German American, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, and owner of six American nameplate cars and one SUV), I should NOT do anything to help elect candidates and b) I should resign as a Republican Precinct Committeeman. Nevertheless, yesterday, I finished hand-delivering door-to-door the following to all 150 homes in my precinct a) that had at least one Republican or Independent voter and b) that had no Democrat yard signs: joint candidate piece from the Milton Township Republican Organization, sample ballot, literature from the 14 Republican candidates on the ballot in my precinct who provided campaign literature, and my GOPUSA Illinois business card. Six of the aforesaid pieces had to be folded to fit inside the envelopes provided by the DuPage County Republican Central Committee. The envelopes had on them a) mailing labels provided by the DuPage County Election Division for each individual Republican or Independent voter and b) my return address label.)
https://vancouversun.com/news/politics/bc-election/dont-pet-voters-dogs-or-sneeze-on-campaign-literature-a-few-of-the-b-c-party-covid-tips-for-staff

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The three main parties supplied their safety plans to Postmedia, and there are obvious similarities around mask-wearing, social distancing, handwashing and staying home when sick. But there are also differences. At the NDP camp, workers from different parts of the campaign are “bubbled” and not allowed to interact with their fellow party workers. That is not only a drag for the Smith brothers, but for senior bus staffer Marie Della Mattia and her daughter, Emily, who works at NDP headquarters. The NDP says its rules are based on guidelines from WorkSafeBC and Henry’s office: At headquarters, staff work in small cohort teams that arrive and eat at different times while those on the bus sit in spread-out seats and hand sanitize after every stop. On Thursday, the party issued new protocols for journalists, which includes an online form that asks for symptoms and collects contact-tracing information. The Liberals’ safety plan includes many of those same elements, but also details minimizing the number of workers in campaign offices, prohibiting the public from entering the offices or requiring appointments, and using plastic or shower curtains barriers when physical distance cannot be maintained. The Liberals also have rules for canvassing, which includes limiting physical contact with doorbells and railings, hand-sanitizing between each house, never going into voters’ houses, and never petting their dogs and cats. Campaign material should be carried in a plastic bag, workers must “take every possible precaution to avoid sneezing” on it, and it should never be handed directly to a voter. Liberal events should have no more than 50 people, ideally be held outside, provide masks and sanitizer and, when possible, have assigned seating, the party says. In its safety material, the Green party acknowledges that “COVID-19 has created a situation where campaigning is going to look very different.” For starters, canvassers should wear gloves and, this year more than ever, respect a voter who isn’t interested. “Canvassers must understand that the public may not be comfortable with this type of activity at their place of residence. Team members will need to be polite, respectful and sensitive to people’s comfort levels,” the Green material says. Only team members in the same household bubble should travel in a car together. If additional people must be in the car, roll the windows down. In campaign offices, door handles, printers and sink taps must be cleaned several times a day, and Green party volunteers should avoid using common coffee pots, kettles or microwaves — which could make for some tired and hungry volunteers. Even when it comes to donations, the rules have changed. The Green party would prefer “contactless” transactions, presumably e-transfers, or old-fashioned cash can be dropped into a container with a slot on top.)
