I should write a book about the way that GAO, IRS, and the Post Office treated those who shared my demographics. The way that organizations treat their members sends strong messages to everyone.

The way that governments treat their residents sends strong messages to everyone. I should write a book about the way that Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois treat those who share my demographics. I would focus on the adverse actions that GAO, IRS, Post Office, MTRO, DCRCC, IRP, WCC, AAPC, TAPROOT, and ICRC have taken against those who share my demographics. Those adverse actions drive people who share my demographics away from the aforesaid employers, organizations, and governments.)

PSYCHOLOGY TODAY
— What Is Conformity? (DIERSEN: I should write a book about what it takes to be accepted. I have the best record by far for attending Milton Township Republican Organizations (MTRO) meetings and fundraisers since 1999. I was a TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member 2003-2011, MTRO webmaster 2008-2010 and 2000-2004, Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member 2003-2007, American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member 2001-2004, GAO employee 1980-1997, Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter Executive Committee member 1983-1996, IRS employee 1971-1980, Firestone Stores employee 1970-1972, Post Office Employee 1966-1969, etc.) 
https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/basics/conformity
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Conformity is typically motivated by a person’s identification with a specific group. In theory, to be truly accepted as a member, an individual must adopt the norms and rules that govern the group’s behavior. . .That usually means copying the actions of others, looking to the group when deciding how to think or behave, or doing what is “expected” based on widely accepted (if often unspoken) social norms.)

Kresges in Chicago Heights part-time during my junior and senior years at Crete-Monee High School and full-time during the summer in between. My understanding is a) that I was the only White to hold that job, b) that I was the only male to hold that job, and c) that I held that job longer than anyone else.)

My goals for 2020 include helping elect all the Republican candidates on the November 3 ballot in my precinct. I will focus on getting yard sign locations in my precinct for the candidates.

FORBES
— You Must Answer This One Question If You Want To Maximize Your Career Success In 2020 – Mark Murphy (DIERSEN: What did you do to learn new job-related skills? I earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997 when I was 48 years old. I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981 when I was 32 years old. I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980 when I was 31 years old. I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979 when I was 30 years old. I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976 when I was 27 years old. I earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970 when I was 21 years old.) 
https://www.forbes.com/sites/markmurphy/2020/12/29/you-must-answer-this-one-question-if-you-want-to-maximize-your-career-success-in-2020/#7d5adbeb5449

(FROM THE ARTICLE: First, set a big career goal for 2020. Maybe you want new responsibilities, a promotion, to double sales, or whatever. But then, after you set that goal, ask yourself, “What new skills am I going to have to learn in order to achieve my big goal?” If you can’t identify any new skills that you’ll need to learn, then you’ve just discovered that your goal needs to be more difficult. Forcing yourself to learn new skills sounds like a pretty obvious task. But our study called “If Employees Aren’t Learning, You’re Not Leading” discovered that only 35% of employees say that they’re Always learning something new at work. Meanwhile, 52% of employees are Never, Occasionally or Rarely learning new things. And as bad as it is that most employees aren’t actually learning new skills at work each year, the situation is even worse: Employees who are always learning new things are 10 times more likely to be inspired than those who are not. Not only does learning new skills keep our careers progressing, it also significantly increases our fulfillment and inspiration on the job. And as you can see in the chart below from the study, the more we increase our learning on the job, the more inspired we become.)

— Who Must Protect the Ukraine-Trump Whistleblower? – Stephen M. Kohn (DIERSEN: While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, I blew the whistle on political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. My Democrat superiors took adverse actions against me because they knew that I was not “protected.” They knew that overwhelmingly, those who dominated the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) were anti-conservative and favored political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. I should write a book about those who have dominated the IRP since 1966.) 
https://www.natlawreview.com/article/who-must-protect-ukraine-trump-whistleblower
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The ICWPA anti-retaliation law is not limited simply to preventing whistleblowers from being fired. The law defines the types of “adverse action” the President must shield whistleblowers from, including “any change in working conditions.” In the case of the Ukrainian “quid pro quo” whistleblower, the catastrophic impact on the whistleblower’s ability to perform his or her job duties that would be triggered by violating his right to confidentiality is obvious. This would include undermining his or her ability to work oversees, be promoted to a covert agent (if not one already), or effectively interact with employees in the White House. Furthermore, breaching the confidentiality of whistleblowers is well established as an “adverse action” under whistleblower law. Federal courts and administrative agencies as divergent as the SEC and Department of Labor have ruled that revealing the name of a whistleblower is an adverse action. Anyone with experience working with whistleblowers knows that once their identity is revealed, their working conditions will never be the same, and they will have a target on their back for the rest of their careers.)

DENVER POST
— Weld County launches “marijuana is not harmless” campaign. – SAM TABACHNIK (DIERSEN: When will your county, your township/ward, and/or your municipality launch such a campaign?)
https://www.denverpost.com/2019/12/26/weld-county-marijuana-campaign/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: County officials started brainstorming this summer after the health department noticed youth marijuana and vaping rates were increasing along with car crashes, Aakko said. Those factors, combined with what the county found to be a lower perception of risk around marijuana, helped convince health officials that something needed to be done. “We wanted to get out there that there are consequences to heavy marijuana use and certainly when you get behind the wheel and drive,” Aakko said. Marijuana industry experts said it’s true that there are some harms and risks to marijuana.)

GALLUP
— How Much Does the World Trust Journalists? – ZACC RITTER (DIERSEN: According to my critics/opponents, you can be a journalist or a reporter ONLY if you claim to be non-partisan. However, beyond overwhelmingly, those journalist and reporters who claim to be non-partisan promote the Democrat, Libertarian, and/or Green party platforms.) 
https://news.gallup.com/opinion/gallup/272999/world-trust-journalists.aspx

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Another potential source of distrust in journalists is political polarization. In the United States, trust in the mass media, broadly, has fallen from 68% in 1972 to 41% today. Similarly, a recent Gallup-Knight report found that trust in U.S. local media declines for people who perceive a large gap between their political ideology and the perceived ideology of local news organizations. While trust in the media and trust in journalists differ, the two concepts are related enough to suspect a relationship between political polarization and trust in journalists may exist around the world. Political polarization — measured as the extent to which differences of opinions on major political issues in society exist by country-level experts and part of the Varieties of Democracy project — is strongly associated with less trust in journalists. As the graph shows, the more politically polarized a country is, the less trust the public tends to have in journalists.)

When leadership vacancies occur, are you given a) the applicants’ names, b) copies of what they submitted, and c) the finalists’ names? What opportunity are you given to comment on the applicants?

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Where is the transparency? Where is the respect? In less than six months, the Helena City Commission has been able to weaken Helena’s city departments, processes and strategic partnerships, resulting in a culture of distrust by hiring their handpicked city manager to implement their agendas and clean house. We are retired city employees who care about current employees and community groups that we had the honor of serving with in a productive and respectful environment. We retired before the new city manager was hired, and while it may appear we have an “ax to grind,” we simply care about the future of this city and staff. This letter strives to raise awareness and encourage Helena citizens to get involved and stay engaged. The 2019 City Commission election filing deadline is Monday. There are plenty of facts and documentation to support these concerns. However, for the protection of staff, details will not be disclosed in this format. Where is the community conversation? There appears to be a lack of public process and participation related to recent recommendations and decisions. City advisory boards are “informed” of decisions rather than consulted in a collaborative effort, and their recommendations are ignored. Longstanding and effective partnerships are dismissed and dismantled while priority is given to the rhetoric of entitled special interest groups and disgruntled individuals without any regard to the greater community benefit and other legitimate user groups. Research and you will find that decisions are made outside the framework of city ordinance and that contracts are being awarded without following a competitive process. We are concerned there is a total disregard for city code and legal processes. Is this transparency?)
