— Freedom is the right to inequality, or an equal right to be unequal – Oleg Atbashian
(COMMENT: My Democrat superiors in the federal government were furious when I earned job-related university degrees in 1970, 1976, 1980, and 1997; job-related professional certifications in 1979, 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997; and a job-related professional license in 1981 because my Democrat coworkers and subordinates failed/refused to do that.)
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/09/freedom_is_the_right_to_inequality_or_an_equal_right_to_be_unequal.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: People, by their nature, are not uniform. We are all different, and immediate equality among us can only be achieved by forcibly bringing us to the lowest common denominator. Equality between the rich and the poor can only be achieved by confiscating the riches. Equality between the strong and the weak can only be achieved by emasculating the strong. Equality between the smart and the stupid can only be achieved by casting intelligence as a defect. Thus, a fully equitable society would be a society of the poor, the weak, and the stupid, held together by force.)

— Reporters Furious After Screaming White House Staffers Block Them From Asking Biden a Single Question – Jack Davis

They stopped me from raising funds from Republicans so that Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day parade and fireworks. They ended my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship, my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership, my Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster service twice, my Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee membership, and my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member ship. They almost succeeded in getting ICRC to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters.)

(COMMENT: Should everyone involved in politics and in government be required to fully disclose how much education and how much money that their parents’ have/had? Neither of my outstanding parents attended college. My father fought type 1 diabetes from age 14, was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma, worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights, almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, and died suddenly of heart failure in 1969 when I was 21 years old. My mother never attended high school.)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/gavin-newsom-white-privilege-larry-elder-racism-inequality-california-recall-election-11631566580
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If the polls going into Tuesday’s recall election in California hold up, Gavin Newsom will keep his job as governor. But if he does, no one should ever again take seriously progressive complaints about white privilege. Because if white privilege is a thing, Mr. Newsom is drenched in it. Mr. Newsom’s father was a well-connected state judge who once managed one of the trusts for the family of oil magnate J. Paul Getty. As for his son, the Los Angeles Times says that “a coterie of San Francisco’s wealthiest families has backed him at every step of his rise.” This privilege is reflected in the $70 million Mr. Newsom raised to fight the recall—more than five times the $13 million raised by his leading challenger, Republican Larry Elder.)

— Unfair retirement cuts – James Glover, President, Chapter 1309
(COMMENT: I am one of those 99,640. My Social Security is $365 less each month because I get a Civil Service Retirement System pension. I paid Social Security taxes while I washed dishes, cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, pumped gasoline, delivered mail, worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard, sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances, etc. 1964-1974.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20210902/unfair-retirement-cuts
(FROM THE LETTER: I am a retired federal employee who loses $500 per month from my earned Social Security benefit. In 1984, Congress unfairly reduced public employee SSA pensions by two-thirds of the benefit earned and promised for no reason other than to save SSA money. No other category of pensions was reduced. We urge Congress to pass HR 82 and S1302 to remedy this unjust treatment. This unfair law adversely affects 99,640 citizens in Illinois and needs to be repealed so we can get the same benefits earned like everyone else.)

— Who are the real RINOs? The Trump critics or the Trump enablers? – Editorial
(COMMENT: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. Most commonly, RINOs reject the traditional family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform. Far too often, RINOs promote dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, patronage, reverse discrimination (wokeism, BLM, CRT, 1619, reparations, etc.), and/or age discrimination. I should write a book about RINOs. I would focus on RINOs who destroy a) those who they cannot manipulate/dominate, b) those who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) those who refuse to pander to them, d) those who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, e) those who refuse to cover up their wrongdoing, and/or f) those who refuse to give them money.)

(COMMENT: I should write a book about my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government who worked the hardest to turn my many Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates who were Jewish against me. They stressed that I was baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, that I was 100% German national origin, that I was conservative, that I was Republican, that I lived in Crete 1948-1972, and that I have lived in Wheaton since 1978. In my defense, I stressed that all my ancestors immigrated during the 1840s and 1850s, that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans in WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII, and that my father would have fought the Germans during WWII if he had not been 4-F. Virtually all my Democrat superiors in the federal government who took adverse actions against me were Jewish.)

https://townhall.com/columnists/benshapiro/2021/08/18/the-fight-over-identity-n2594324
(FROM THE ARTICLE: America has been wrecked on the shoals of identity. Identity politics has been characterized casually as a form of tribalism: Americans grouping themselves according to biological or sexual characteristics, in opposition to other groups associated by biological or sexual characteristics. And there is certainly truth to the idea that such tribalism has damaged America in extraordinary ways — that tribalism acts as the sort of factionalism the founding fathers feared, tearing Americans from each other and forcing them into polarized units competing against others in a battle over control. But there is another form of identity politics even more sinister than the sort of tribalism we see so openly today. That is a form of identity politics that focuses less on politics than on identity: the redefinition of identity itself.)
