Further, they stress that I am not paid for what I do as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor, that I do not have a degree in journalism, and that neither GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails nor www.gopillinois.com contain advertising or pictures. Further, they stress the many ways in which the following treat me like I am not a journalist: past and present a) leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois and b) activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, etc. who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican. The aforesaid treat me like I am not a journalist a) because they cannot manipulate me or dominate me, b) because I refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, c) because they are anti-religious, anti-conservative, and/or anti-Republican, and/or d) because they want to curry favor with the Illinois Democrat Party, DuPage County Democrat Party, Milton Township Democrat Party, Capitol Fax, Daily Herald, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, those who I have sued, etc.)

— 6 key steps to retiring next year – Jessica Dickler (DIERSEN: My $53,316/year Civil Service Retirement System pension is only 42% of what my 1997 GAO salary was in today’s dollars.) 
https://www.cnbc.com/2019/12/13/6-key-steps-to-retiring-next-year.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Retirement readiness nationwide is shaky overall. Only 23% of men and just 12% of women are “very confident” in their ability to fully retire with a comfortable lifestyle, according to recent research from the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies. . .Consider how your expenses will change in retirement. “The dollar amount is dependent on how long someone expects to be retired but also the lifestyle they plan to lead,” added Lauren Anastasio, a certified financial planner at SoFi in Claymont, Delaware. “The first question people should ask themselves is ‘what do I expect retirement to look like?’” she said. “Some folks want to be close to their family, others want to travel the world.”)

MEDIA BIAS/FACT CHECK
— GOPUSA: “GOPUSA is a private company whose mission is to spread the conservative message throughout America.” Dr. Robert Eberle is President and CEO of GOPUSA. In review, GOPUSA utilizes headlines that contain moderately loaded words and almost all stories are pro-right and anti-left. While they tend to source their information to mostly credible media, they also have produced a false claim via a fact checker. Overall, we rate GOPUSA as right biased based on story selection and mixed for factual reporting based a failed fact check. (M. Huitsing 8/16/2017)

— Your GOPUSA Illinois Editor Dave Diersen will urge the Wheaton City Council at its meeting Monday, July 1, 2019, at 7 P.M. to make Wheaton the first municipality in Illinois to ban the sale of pot. Municipalities and counties that do not ban the sale of pot shout that they are NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY. Your mayor and your city council members and your county board chairman and your county board members should ASAP call for a vote on the sale of pot and ASAP announce that they will vote against the sale of pot. I urge Wheaton Mayor Phil Suess and Wheaton City Council members Michael Barbier, Erica Bray-Parker, Suzanne Fitch, John K. Rutledge, and Todd Scalzo and the new North District Council member (soon to be Christopher J. Zaruba) to a) call for a vote on the sale of pot in Wheaton ASAP and b) vote NO on the sale of pot in Wheaton. I urge DuPage County Chairman Dan Cronin and DuPage County Board members Donald Puchalski, Ashley Selmon, Sam Tornatore, Elizabeth Chaplin, Peter “Pete” DiCianni, Sean Noonan, Greg Hart, Brian Krajewski, Julie Renehan, Grant Eckhoff, Tim Elliott, Mary FitzGerald Ozog, Sadia Covert, Dawn DeSart, James Healy, Robert Larsen, Sheila Rutledge, and James Zay to a) call for a vote on the sale of pot in unincorporated DuPage County ASAP and b) vote NO on the sale of pot in unincorporated DuPage County. – Dave Diersen

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Gov. J.B. Pritzker should establish an Office of GSGBO (Get Stoned or Get the Bleep Out) to make a few bucks off those fleeing the state – John Kass (DIERSEN: DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: Because Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, RINOs, and other anti-Republicans ever-increasingly promote pot and promote gambling in Illinois, ever-increasingly, more and more and more of those in your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, and in Illinois will harm themselves with pot and harm themselves with gambling. Ever-increasingly, that will harm you and harm everyone around you.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Our politicians are doing what they can, trying to stupify us with pot smoking and sports betting, and they’ll probably legalize prostitution next, so the rest of the state will be like Springfield, but here’s the question: How can Illinois take advantage of the Illinois Exodus and monetize outmigration from Madiganistan?)

— Recent surveys agree that more than one-third of all college students suffer at times from bouts of food insecurity. The rate is far higher for students with an extra risk factor: belonging to a racial minority, having a single parent or being the first in their family to attend college, for example. . .A recent study by the Government Accountability Office says only 29% of those now in college are “traditional students,” who enroll right out of high school and depend on their parents for support. The rest, especially in community colleges, can be older, and financially fragile — often with children of their own. – Cokie Roberts and Steven V. Roberts
