— Republican representatives withdraw from Black and Brown Coalition – Paige Allen
http://kwqc.com/2016/10/15/republican-representatives-withdraw-from-black-and-brown-coalition/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Rock Island County Republican Party announced Friday that it is withdrawing its candidates from forums hosted by the Black and Brown Coalition. Rock Island County Republican Chairman Bill Bloom says that during the planning of the political forum, a Republican representative was asked to leave, and was told the planning needed to be a “safe zone,” though a Democratic representative was allowed to stay. Bloom also says there were other issues, including unanswered questions about the format and the exclusion of several races. “First off, we weren’t quite sure if it was a level playing field. You almost never get a completely level playing field, we weren’t sure what the slope of this field was at all. It also seemed that things were a little bit slap-dashed, a little disorganized with how it was coming together. And I know they’ve been trying to put it together in a very short period of time, but, but, there was just too many unknowns, too many variables and too many things that couldn’t be explained, uh for us to retain our position in the forum,” Bloom said.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The 2016 election will be remembered as the year the Republican Party ceased to exist as a viable national political organization. This is the year that an insurgent candidate, Donald Trump, captured the nomination despite the opposition of 16 establishment candidates, their operatives, party leaders, consultants, special interests, major donors and the majority of the “conservative” media. For a while, there was partial unity as most of the defeated candidates and their supporters endorsed Trump, even Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Yet, after the revelation of a 2005 ‘hot mic” recording of Trump engaging in crude “locker room” sexual banter with Billy Bush, an entertainment reporter, many of these party leaders have abandoned their nominee.)

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/sns-bc-us–catholics-gays-20161012-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: An ideological tug of war over the firing of a Rhode Island church music director for marrying his same-sex partner illustrates the confusion that permeates some U.S. Roman Catholic parishes over Pope Francis’ words on homosexuality. Francis’ famous declaration “Who am I to judge?” in 2013 energized Catholics who had pushed the church to accept gays and lesbians. Now, some gay Catholics and supporters who hoped for rapid acceptance find themselves stymied by many bishops and pastors. Francis is being cited by both the music director, Michael Templeton, and by Providence Bishop Thomas Tobin, known for taking a hard line on church teaching about marriage and abortion. Tobin has criticized Francis, writing after the pope’s summit on the family two years ago that “Francis is fond of ‘creating a mess.’ Mission accomplished.” The pope has upheld Catholic teaching on homosexuality, reiterating the church’s opposition to same-sex relationships. But his shift in tone and broad statements about mercy have left a trail of comments that amount to a Rorschach test open to interpretation, say those who have closely followed Francis.)

— SEPTEMBER 13, 2012 FLASHBACK: Wheaton group home (SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Group_home) for developmentally disabled moves forward  Proposed 15-resident care location would be northeast of downtown Wheaton – Bob Goldsborough
http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-09-13/news/ct-tl-wheaton-group-home-20120913_1_group-care-home-wheaton-stars
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Plans for a proposed 15-resident group care home for developmentally disabled individuals just northeast of downtown Wheaton cleared another hurdle, as the city’s Group Care Home Commission voted 3-1 to grant the project a necessary group care home license. The Wheaton-based nonprofit STARS Family Services, which operates another four-person group care home called Washington House on Wheaton’s north side, wants to construct a new group care home on vacant land at the southeast corner of Cross Street and Union Avenue. The project would be constructed on land currently owned by St. John Lutheran Church, zoned for single-family residential use and used for two parking lots. Plans call for two structures that would be linked by a common courtyard. Each would have six private bedrooms, a great room, a shared kitchen and shared baths for each pair of bedrooms. The project also will include housing for a couple who would live in the home and oversee the evening and the overnight. A volunteer or staff person also will be present in the home during the day. The project has drawn opposition from some neighbors, who criticize the scale of the proposal. In addition, they have questioned STARS’ financial strength and how the home would be used were STARS to no longer be economically viable. “None of the neighbors oppose a group care home,” said neighbor Kathy Langlois. “We embrace it, we applaud it and we welcome it. And it’s absolutely not a case of ‘Not in my back yard.’ It’s a question of scale.” Langlois also said she and her neighbors would welcome the construction of one single-family home on the site. “What happens if STARS runs out of money?” she asked. “This will be a group care home. It can’t go back to being a single-family home.” STARS president Ray Chase noted that the organization has taken great pains to ensure its financial viability. STARS plans to pay cash for the land and has vowed never to open a group care home until it has 150 percent of that home’s projected first year’s operating expenses. In addition, STARS’ College Avenue resale shop generates more than 40 percent of the group’s annual need, he said. “I think we’re pretty stable,” he said. “I think we’ve taken a very conservative approach financially.” Chase also said the group is continuing to try to work with neighbors. “We’ve also done some things to make sure the home looks like it would fit in a neighborhood and isn’t overwhelming in size,” Chase said. “There even are architectural variations between the two homes so they look like different homes.” Wheaton’s Planning and Zoning Board unanimously voted in June to recommend that the City Council approve the project. Last week, three-fourths of the Group Care Home Commission’s members signed off on the project as well. Group Care Home Commission board member Chris Ellerman praised STARS for proposing two linked structures rather than one larger one. He also lauded the group’s model, which involves a married couple living with the developmentally disabled adults, with the adults’ aging parents or relatives being involved on a weekly basis and typically coming by to visit over the dinner hour. “In terms of a home for disabled adults in the community they have grown up in, absolutely,” Ellerman said. “This is their town. I live two blocks away, and I’d be ashamed if I didn’t want to welcome them in my community..” Group Care Home Commission board member Matthew McNear was the lone vote against the license. In an interview on Friday, he noted his concerns about the “scope” of the proposed home and some of the other issues that neighbors had raised. “I think STARS is a great organization and they do a lot of good there, but I think this probably could use some more discussion or some more review,” he said. With the group care home license now in hand, the proposal next heads to the Wheaton City Council for its consideration, likely sometime in October, said Jim Kozik, the city’s director of planning and economic development.)

— FOR CONDOS, A LOST DECADE  When the housing market crashed in 2006, Chicago was awash in unsold condominiums—and the wave tripled in size as the crisis deepened. The meter is still running. Today, condos are worth about 7 percent less than they were 10 years ago. – DENNIS RODKIN  (DIERSEN: My wife and I got married in 1978.  In 1978, a) after owning a one bedroom condo in the Outer Drive East building for less than 2 years, sold it a $10,000 profit; b) I used that profit to buy a new 1978 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale and a new 1978 Chevy Chevette; and c) my wife and I bought 1017 East Harrison in Wheaton using her savings for the 20% down payment.)

— Would you be unhappy with $780,000 a year? – CLAIRE BUSHEY  (DIERSEN: How much do/did you earn? The most that I ever earned in today’s dollars was a lousy $120,427 a year.  Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes use that to demonize me, to denigrate me, and to condemn me as being a failed loser and even worse things.)
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20161013/NEWS04/161019898/would-you-be-unhappy-with-780000-a-year
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The average total compensation for partners at Chicago law firms increased 13 percent in the last two years to $780,000, according to a new study. The growth rate eclipsed New York, where partners in the country’s largest legal market averaged $1.7 million annually, but compensation only went up 5 percent from 2014. By contrast, partners in San Francisco saw their comp shoot up 51 percent to $997,000, according to the report from New York-based legal recruiters Major Lindsey & Africa. The survey sample included more than 2,100 partners from across the country, with 244 from Chicago. The survey only went to lawyers practicing at the country’s largest firms; approximately 8,600 of Cook County’s more than 45,000 lawyers work at such operations. The city’s partners had the 10th highest average compensation among the 14 legal markets ranked by the headhunting firm. Growth in compensation has slowed since the last time the firm conducted the survey: Between 2012 and 2014, comp for the city’s senior lawyers grew nearly 20 percent from $575,000. Chicago’s lower compensation average may stem from the city’s historic practice of making lawyers partner at a younger age, said Jeffrey Lowe, the Washington D.C.-based author of the study. More of the partners taking the survey in Chicago are likely billing at the same rates as associates elsewhere in the country. Chicago’s billing rates, too, are a comparative bargain compared to the rest of the country. Partners in Chicago on average billed at $687 per hour. Only Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas, Seattle, Miami and “other” markets had lower rates. Just over a quarter of Chicago’s partners rated themselves as either “not at all” or “not very” satisfied with their compensation.)

http://www.mysuburbanlife.com/2016/10/12/group-home-for-young-mothers-proposed-for-former-wheaton-inn/a8390an/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A group home for new and expectant single mothers is being proposed for the former Wheaton Inn building at 301 W. Roosevelt Road in Wheaton. The Clarendon Hills-based company Love From Above Inc. has a contract to purchase the building from its current owner, PCM Properties LLC, a subsidiary of Invesco PowerShares. The group is set to close on the property in December. Love From Above plans to offer a two-year transitional housing program for women who find themselves in “crisis pregnancies,” said Yvonne Florczak-Seeman, president and founder of Love From Above. A culinary program and fashion design program also will be offered, she said. “We’ll also have a full-blown child care program, where their children will stay within the building,” Florczak-Seeman said. “Babies will be taken care of by volunteers while the moms go to school. We’ll have a full-time licensed teacher on the premises as well who will also work with them on their homework and give classes on finances and mothering classes.” The program would be offered to women 18 to 26 years old, she said, and would serve both expectant mothers and single mothers. The facility would serve up to 12 women. This would be the company’s first facility, which will be called The Butterfly Garden…A Place for Healing and Transformation. Florczak-Seeman, who is 52, experienced an unplanned pregnancy herself when she was 16. “Unfortunately, the choice for me was made to have an abortion,” she said. “I didn’t have any other options. That abortion brought forth some very serious emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual aftermath.” Florczak-Seeman said she wants those in the program to understand “pregnancy is not a terminal disease.” “Pregnancy is not something that will kill them,” she said. “Pregnancy is something that lasts nine months. During that time, they can still continue their education. They can still do what they need to do. They can still have these children and be great mothers, and be successful young ladies in school.”)

www.gopillinois.com) and the emails that it has sent out free of charge and without any advertising since 2000.  Those emails have a) gone out each and every morning since 2004 and each and every evening since 2015 and b) included links to more than 247,700 articles and information on many upcoming events.)
http://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/511018371-former-cod-board-member-savage-asks-federal-government-to-shut-down-dupage-policy-journal
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The filing questions the independence of the DuPage Policy Journal — alleging it is run by a political organization — and contends it should not be entitled to press exemption from campaign finance laws. Savage’s filing alleges the DuPage Policy Journal is not an independent newspaper, but rather is controlled by the Liberty Principles PAC through Dan Proft. Proft is a businessman, a radio talk-show host and a principal of Local Government Information Services, which owns the DuPage Policy Journal. Proft denied allegations made in the FEC filing and said the newspaper is owned by a private company. “It’s a legitimate newspaper just like any other newspaper,” Proft told the Associated Press. “I’ll put the stories we do on politics and policy up against any other newspaper in the state.” Rich Miller, publisher of the Capital Fax political blog and newsletter, agreed in a post that the problem with the filing is that the newspaper is owned by a private company. “Look, I do not want the federal government defining what is and is not a legit media company,” Miller wrote. “Progress Illinois does good work, but it gets most of its money from SEIU. I don’t know who funds Illinois Review, but I’m fine with them, too. Stay the heck away.” The FEC has 15 days to get a response from those accused in the complaint. It will then make a decision on whether to launch a full investigation.)

Only 12 percent of voters say revenue alone is the answer.)

MCCLATCHY DC
— Federal election agency gets complaint on DuPage Policy Journal – AP
http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-government/national-politics/article107700547.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: One of several startup newspapers tied to a conservative Illinois activist has been challenged in a federal complaint as a Republican mouthpiece, meaning it should count as a campaign contribution. Kim Savage, a Democrat from the Chicago suburb of Darien, argues in a Federal Election Commission filing that the DuPage Policy Journal is not an independent newspaper, but controlled by businessman and radio talk-show host Dan Proft through his political action committee, Liberty Principles PAC, which got a $2.5 million contribution last June from Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner. The paper is one of 14 co-owned by Proft that appeared last spring before the state’s primary elections. The complaint, filed last week in Washington, maintains the DuPage Policy Journal is illegally coordinating with GOP congressional candidate Tonia Khouri and that its publication costs should be reported as political contributions in her race to unseat incumbent Democratic Rep. Bill Foster. The PAC, Proft, Khouri for Congress and the Khouri campaign treasurer are named in the FEC document. It contends the DuPage paper is not entitled to a press exemption from campaign finance laws because it’s run by a political organization, is not published regularly, is sent to doorsteps or left in high traffic areas for free and includes “coordinated communications” with a candidate that the law bars for so-called independent expenditure committees. “I’m really concerned about all the dark money from special interest groups and their influence on elections,” said Savage, a former College of DuPage board member. She said she thought the newspaper “was a local, grassroots thing and I was kind of appalled when I found out it was a special interest group that publishes it.” Proft called the FEC complaint “factually incorrect in every possible way,” primarily because the papers are now owned by a private company called Local Government Information Services. According to records filed with the secretary of state’s office, Local Government Information Services incorporated on Aug. 15. “It’s a legitimate newspaper just like any other newspaper,” Proft told The Associated Press. “I’ll put the stories we do on politics and policy up against any other newspaper in the state.” The FEC must seek a response from the targets of the complaints within 15 days, then review those and decide whether to investigate further. There’s no expedited process despite the Nov. 8 election. Proft, a drive-time AM radio talk show host in Chicago who ran for the Republican nomination for governor in 2010, began publishing the newspapers last spring. According to the complaint, they are distributed in 14 areas, including DuPage County; Springfield; Chicago’s north, northwest, and south suburbs; the Quad Cities and the Illinois suburbs of St. Louis. Liberty Principles PAC, which Proft says is not participating in any federal races, was named in complaints about three of the newspapers — two in Chicago’s northern suburbs and one in downstate Cumberland County — filed during the primary election with the Illinois State Board of Elections. The papers were alleged to have improperly engaged in coordinating messages with legislative candidates and had not attributed their funding source. Documents indicate the board found the “coordinated communications” complaints were filed on “justifiable grounds” but took no action. In two cases, it ordered Liberty Principles PAC to include a “paid for by” disclaimer in future issues. Khouri campaign manager John Cooney issued a statement calling the federal complaint “a desperate attempt by Bill Foster and his cronies to divert attention” from issues such as protecting Social Security and Medicare and creating good-paying jobs. Foster, running for his fourth nonconsecutive term, declined comment.)

— Roskam flip-flops on Trump; now undecided – Robert Sanchez  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, anti-Trumps make it clear that they will get rid of you if you vote for Trump.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20161011/news/161019760/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Just hours after saying U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam was planning to vote for Donald Trump, spokesman David Pasch on Tuesday rescinded the remark. Instead, Pasch released a written statement saying Roskam is undecided on how he will vote Nov. 8. “Hillary Clinton has already disqualified herself by her actions and deeds,” Pasch wrote in an email Tuesday afternoon. “Donald Trump has 28 days left to convince him (Roskam) that he’s the right person to fix our broken tax code, bring accountability to the federal government, and restore American leadership to the world stage.” The statement is very different from what Pasch wrote in a Tuesday morning email. “I can confirm he is still planning to vote for Donald Trump,” the earlier email said. The confusion comes as other GOP leaders are distancing themselves from Trump after a video surfaced last week of a 2005 conversation in which the reality TV star talked about trying to have sex with a married woman and being able to grope women. Roskam, a Wheaton Republican, on Monday called Trump’s comments and the attitude they reflect “disgusting and corrosive.”  Last week — days before the scandal broke — Roskam said the election is a “binary choice” and he was planning to vote for Trump. He said he views Trump as a “wild card” who he was “choosing to vote for … over the unworthy candidate.” Roskam said Trump has made comments during the campaign that he doesn’t agree with. He also said he won’t defend “every wild statement” Trump makes.)

http://thehill.com/opinion/mark-mellman/299299-mellman-changing-patterns
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Much has been written about the increasing proportion of the electorate that is made up of minorities: African-Americans, Latinos, Asians and others. While Republicans’ grassroots hostility to diversity makes life very difficult for the GOP at the presidential level, important and under-discussed transformations have impacted white voters as well. The share of noncollege-educated whites has been cut in half since 1980. When Ronald Reagan defeated Jimmy Carter, nearly two-thirds of the electorate was made up of noncollege-educated whites. By 2012, that number had shrunk to just 37 percent. Meanwhile, as minority participation has risen, white college graduates’ share of the electorate has remained stable, so that in 2012, white voters divided about evenly between college and noncollege graduates.  That dramatic change in educational attainment presents profound political implications. Pew’s recently published compendium of party identification data helps sort through the numbers. In 1992, whites without college experience were more likely to identify as Democrats than as Republicans by a 9-point margin. In the quarter-century since, party identification among noncollege whites was closely contested, with Democrats holding on to a few more in some years and Republicans edging ahead in others. Beginning in 2008, the GOP margin with noncollege whites increased substantially, reaching 26 points this year. Despite what some would have you believe, this is not wholly an effect of Donald Trump. While the GOP advantage reached its current zenith this year, it had been moving strongly in that direction for the past eight. At the same time, a wholly opposite process is at work among whites who have graduated from college. In 1992, whites with a college degree were even more Republican than whites without a degree were Democratic. College-educated whites identified with the Republican Party by an 11-point margin when Bill Clinton defeated George H.W. Bush. But, beginning in 2004, that gap narrowed substantially — today, Democrats enjoy a 1-point edge with college-educated whites. That margin is fueled, importantly, by those with post-graduate experience. What was an even split in 1992 has grown into a 12-point Democratic advantage among those with a post-graduate education. So while Republicans are, and have been, making gains with noncollege whites, they are suffering continuing — albeit smaller — defections from whites who hold a college degree. In the long run, that’s bad news for the GOP, because while whites continue to shrink as a proportion of the electorate, noncollege whites — Republicans’ real base — are shrinking, too. Over the last 20 years, the percent of whites with a bachelor’s degree or more increased at about two-thirds of a percentage point a year, or 2.7 points every four years. Before conservatives start yelling about the liberal academic elite, it is worth noting that there is significant controversy about the magnitude and mechanism of what happens to political attitudes on campus.)

http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-millennials-economy-20161010-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: They’re known for bouncing around jobs, delaying marriage and holing up in their parents’ basements. Dubbed recently as the “children of the Great Recession” by Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, millennials are the best educated and most diverse population of young people in U.S. history. They are also perhaps the most coddled, some would say spoiled. As they emerge this year as the United States’ largest demographic group — some 75 million strong — millennials are taking up the mantle as the most impactful generation since the baby boomers. Their influence has started slowly, due largely to the economic instability that has left many struggling to find good-paying jobs and saddled with staggering student loan debt. But millennials — adults under 35 — are certain to shape the economy for decades to come. And their coming of age in the midst of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression has bred distinct traits that could pose special challenges for the nation’s future growth and prosperity. For starters, millennials are not big spenders, at least not in the traditional sense. Millennials tend to prefer experiences over buying things and accumulating stuff. To them, an impressive selfie capturing a memorable moment is, in some sense, as enviable as a new car or fancy watch was to their parents.)

KANKAKEE DAILY JOURNAL
— Who’s losing on legal gambling? Looks like those who can least afford it – Editorial  (DIERSEN: Gambling is a vice.  If you promote gambling, you promote vice.)
http://www.daily-journal.com/opinion/editorials/who-s-losing-on-legal-gambling-looks-like-those-who/article_188cbdb8-38e8-5c5a-95b2-fa2409cc1cce.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: During the first eight months of the year, gamblers dropped $18.9 million into video poker machines in the city of Kankakee.  Daily Journal senior reporter Lee Provost recently reported on video poker totals in his weekly business column. The numbers were sobering — and staggering. In Kankakee, $4.3 million was “lost” in the machines. Ask yourself this. Who can afford to lose $4.3 million? The totals wagered from Kankakee add up to roughly all the totals from Aroma Park, $811,751; Bradley, $8.5 million; Bourbonnais, $1.8 million; Manteno, $6.3 million; and Momence, $2 million — combined. Here’s what this tells you. A disproportionate number of the terminals, or the wagers, or both, are coming from middle class and lower middle class areas. Does it make sense that Kankakee’s wagers are 10 times those of Bourbonnais? When video gambling was legalized, the initial thought seemed to be to help out small restaurants and taverns. Instead, what has happened is the creation of mini-professional storefronts that have rows of machines. A discussion of Aroma Park’s experience indicated that is where the money is flowing now. One mainstream Aroma Park restaurant no longer operates its machines. In addition, one local mayor quoted indicated that she had not seen many cars in front of one wagering establishment. Translation: It might be that a small number of people are losing a lot of money. Moreover, the amounts wagered are escalating rapidly — up by a third or more in half a dozen communities. Now, we would not want to be Carry Nation with the ax, crusading against demon rum. It would be impossible to go back to no gambling. But a wide range of studies estimates that somewhere from 1 to 2 percent of the population can be classified as being “problem gamblers.” These are people who don’t know when to stop, and show up to follow a bad day with another long session to get even. So, in the pile of proceeds being raked in by the state, we ask a question: Is enough money being set aside to help those who will need help? Much like cigarette taxes, the government seems to need and relish the money. Unlike tobacco, are we warning people enough?)

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/11/business/dealbook/were-he-seeking-any-other-job-hr-would-flag-trump.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Donald Trump describes himself as a businessman. And he says he wants to run the government more like a business. But would any business hire Mr. Trump? It isn’t a trivial question. Given the Republican presidential nominee’s vulgar boasts about sexually assaulting women and trying to coerce a woman to commit adultery with him — among other things — it is hard to believe he could get past the human resources department of a Fortune 500 company. Over the last decade, much of corporate America has put in place strict policies to deal with sexual harassment and other offensive behavior, trying to make amends for an abhorrent history of letting such conduct go unchecked (remember “Mad Men”?). Hiring procedures at large companies, particularly for senior positions, include extensive background checks, which typically include interviewing former colleagues and combing through articles, court records and, yes, social media. Thousands of employees have been fired or pushed out for using far less repugnant language than Mr. Trump’s words about how he gropes women. Walmart, the nation’s largest employer, with some 2.2 million employees, has explicit policies, for example, that prohibit “sexually explicit language, off-color jokes, remarks about a person’s body” as well as “using slurs or negative stereotyping,” “verbal kidding, teasing or joking” and “intimidating acts, such as bullying or threatening.” By those definitions, it is not clear if Mr. Trump would qualify to be hired as a janitor, let alone a senior executive. A spokesman for Walmart, asked whether Mr. Trump’s comments would disqualify him from employment there, said: “We’ve got a policy of not entertaining hypotheticals.” Mr. Trump has apologized for his language, which he described as “locker room talk.” But he used the language while on the job; he was recorded on a live microphone while working to promote “The Apprentice,” his popular reality show.)

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/11/opinion/campaign-stops/count-trump-among-the-takers.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Because Donald J. Trump hasn’t released his tax returns, we don’t know exactly what portion of his fortune he has sent the federal government. But in the second presidential debate, he confirmed that there were a number of years where he paid nothing at all. A week ago, The Times published his partial state tax returns from 1995 that show a substantial business loss that could have allowed him to avoid paying income taxes for nearly two decades. When asked by the moderator Anderson Cooper whether he indeed used the loss to get out of a tax bill, Mr. Trump replied, “Of course I do.”  But rather than attempt to convince the American people that he had paid his fair share of taxes, Mr. Trump has vociferously defended the virtue of his ways, even arguing that paying nothing makes him fit to be president. “That makes me smart,” he retorted when presented with the idea during the first presidential debate. He told the Fox host Bill O’Reilly two days later, “A lot of people say, ‘That’s the kind of thinking that I want running this nation.’ ” He’s now calling it “brilliant.” Mr. Trump’s assertion that people should pay as little as they can in taxes — because, as he told Mr. O’Reilly, the government will “waste the money” — fits with quite an old conservative ideology. The government is bloated, inefficient and trampling on freedoms, the thinking goes; therefore, it deserves as little of our tax money to prop it up as possible. It’s no coincidence that Mr. Trump proposed a tax cut during the primary that was unprecedented, costing the government about double the revenue as would have been lost to Mitt Romney’s plan.)

— A dozen hikers busted while police escort Governor Rauner through Starved Rock  Despite a busy holiday weekend, there were no falls to report at Starved Rock State Park. Conservation Police Sgt. Phil Wire says they did hand out 27 tickets counting Saturday and Sunday at the park. Four of them were for having small amounts of pot while the rest of the tickets were either for alcohol or being caught off the trails. Governor Bruce Rauner and his wife hiked about five miles at Starved Rock Saturday according to Wire. While walking with the governor, police nabbed a dozen other hikers for being off the trails.

WASHINGTON POST
— ‘Lecherous and worthless’: Megachurch pastor from Trump’s own evangelical council denounces him – Sarah Pulliam Bailey
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2016/10/10/misogynistic-trash-megachurch-pastor-from-trumps-own-evangelical-council-denounces-him/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A member of Donald Trump’s evangelical council wrote a sharply worded email calling the Republican presidential candidate’s lewd comments made in a 2005 video “misogynistic trash that reveals a man to be lecherous and worthless,” saying he is no longer willing to offer more of his time without a “change of heart and direction.”  On Monday, Ed Stetzer, executive director of Wheaton College’s Billy Graham Center for Evangelism, published an email on his blog from a Chicago-area megachurch pastor who is on Trump’s council. (Stetzer does not serve on the council.) James MacDonald, pastor of Harvest Bible Chapel, a nondenominational evangelical church in Rolling Meadows, Ill., wrote the email to several members of Trump’s faith council, his campaign liaison and to some who oppose Trump’s candidacy.)
