— AUGUST 24, 2003 FLASHBACK: The New Couples Next Door, Gay and Straight – Kate Zernike (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, you are demonized, denigrated, and condemned if you do not promote LGBTQ activity. According to City-Data at http://www.city-data.com/city/Wheaton-Illinois.html, for Wheaton: “Likely homosexual households (counted as self-reported same-sex unmarried-partner households) Lesbian couples: 0.2% of all households Gay men: 0.2% of all households” Those who promote LGBTQ activity in Wheaton stress “OneWheaton.” SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OneWheaton)
https://www.nytimes.com/2003/08/24/us/the-new-couples-next-door-gay-and-straight.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mark Demich and Kevin Hengst, the couple across the street, are not actually married. Still, in the seven years they have lived in this Chicago suburb they have become like the Buckinghams, the Therrons, the Siconolfis — just another young family in the neighborhood, socializing porch to porch on summer evenings. Choosing the suburbs over the city, Mr. Demich and Mr. Hengst feared they would be The Gay Couple. But even in Wheaton — the home of an evangelical Christian college that until last year prohibited drinking and dancing, the seat of a reliably Republican county — they have found plenty of company. Sixty gay men and lesbians turned out for a wine-tasting a few weeks ago. About 30 played softball at a local park on a recent Saturday. . .In Wheaton, Mr. Demich, 42, said he liked the diversity. ”Of families,” he explained, after a brief pause. ”As opposed to city culture, where everything is around gay life, gay events. That’s not really the way America lives.” When he and Mr. Hengst decided to move to the suburbs, they told their real estate agent, ”Anything but Wheaton,” knowing its conservative reputation. Then they found the perfect house. They hung out a Gay Pride flag, and the neighbors invited them to a block party. The couple said they would bring fruit salad. ”Everyone broke out laughing,” Mr. Weinberg, a contractor, recalled. ”They were making fun of it, which went over well.” Neighborhood children have confronted the couple with questions: Do you two sleep together? Do you have wives? Their parents cringe, but also say they consider themselves, and their children, fortunate. ”Growing up in a good Catholic family, I didn’t even know about anything like this,” Ms. Weinberg said. ”It wasn’t thrown in front of me. These kids, if they don’t see it now, they’re going to see it soon. Living on a block like this is more the real world.” A few blocks over the train tracks, Ladd McClurg and Brad Ogilvie had similar concerns about moving to Wheaton when Mr. Ogilvie accepted a job in town. Mr. McClurg, who grew up in the Mormon faith, being taught that gays were sinners, said he arrived with ”almost a visceral disdain” for Wheaton’s many churches and their members. ”I learned to discover they’re not all bigoted,” Mr. McClurg said. ”There are a lot more variations on the middle out here than I was willing to give credit for.” Still, gays here say they step carefully to avoid causing offense. Betty Burns and Lisa Rechkemmer say they would never hold hands or hang out a pride flag for fear of upsetting their good relations with the neighbors. Mr. Ogilvie and Mr. McClurg display the flag, but resist the urge to hold hands unless they visit the city. One lesbian in Wheaton talked about how accepting her neighbors were, but did not want to be identified by name because she feared the kind of hate calls she and her partner received when they moved in two years ago. Mr. Demich and Mr. Hengst had to go to six or seven churches before they found one that did not preach that homosexuality is a sin. The church they chose, St. Paul Lutheran, had declared itself ”open and affirming” to gays five years ago, but only after a struggle. The decision was prompted not by gay parishioners — there were none at the time — but by a young man who had been baptized and confirmed in the church who died of AIDS. ”It lifted the issue,” said Marianne Avery, a member of the church council that debated the change. ”It was, ‘This is our children, this is not about letting someone in.’ ” Still, a handful of members left. ”What if they show up in drag?” the Rev. Melody Eastman, the pastor, recalled one woman asking.)

Although LGBT clients may directly ask about these neighborhoods, Berger said it’s important to show them every neighborhood that meets their needs and direct them to local LGBT centers and organizations for guidance.)

https://thesouthern.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/union-county-democratic-party-withdraws-legal-action-over-county-board/article_99de7213-eda0-58fd-906c-ff441241f069.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a statement to The Southern on Thursday, Union County Democratic Party Chair Teresa Vincent said that the county’s legal counsel has since provided her the necessary documentation establishing Klingemann’s affiliation to the Democratic Party. Klingemann, a private attorney in Marion who previously worked as an assistant state’s attorney with Edmonds, had not voted in primary elections, and was not active in party politics. The board confirmed his appointment by a 3-2 vote along party lines, with Republicans voting in favor of his confirmation and Democrats against. Union County Board Chairman Max Miller previously said that Klingemann stated to him during the interview process that he was a Democrat, which he said satisfied the party affiliation requirement under the law. But Vincent argued that Klingemann’s record was not sufficient to establish him as a Democrat. She pointed to a section of the law that specifically speaks to the replacement of state senators and representatives and defines party affiliation as follows: A person is a member of a party for 23 months after signing a petition for a candidate’s partisan candidacy for office, signing a petition joining a particular party, pulling a partisan primary ballot, running for partisan office or otherwise holding a partisan position such as state central committeeperson.)

RUSS STEWART
— BAIL-OUTS PROLIFERATE AMONG DEMOCRATIC COMMITTEEMEN
http://www.russstewart.com/articles/2019/09-11-19.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Here is a multiple-choice question for anyone who is still paying attention. A Chicago Democratic ward committeeman is (a) at the top of the political food chain, (b) at the bottom of the political food chain, (c) holds a non-paying post that is inconsequential, and/or (d) believes it’s a steppingstone to glory and power. Anybody who is now or has been a committeeman would answer (b) and (c). Anybody who aspires to and is running for committeeman in 2020 would answer (a) and (d). And everybody else, including this columnist, would give a resounding (c). After all, the sitting Democratic committeemen of the 1st, 39th, 40th, 41st, 45th and 49th wards, who were elected in 2016, lost 2019 bids to be elected or re-elected alderman, and the 50th Ward committeeman and the former 32nd Ward committeeman lost 2018 state senator and county commissioner races. Robert Murphy (39th) and Pat O’Connor (40th) lost the April 2 aldermanic runoff with, respectively, 44.1 and 46.2 percent. Proco Joe Moreno (1st), Tim Heneghan (41st), John Arena (45th) and Joe Moore (49th) lost the Feb. 26 primary with, respectively, 38.8, 29.7, 36.2 and 36.6 percent. And Ira Silverstein (50th) lost his Illinois 8th Senate District seat with 29.9 percent and John Fritchey (32nd) lost with 44.6 percent. They would surely answer the above question with a (b) and (c).)

If you wore a MAGA hat in your county, would your Republican county officials come to your defense? If you wore a MAGA hat in Illinois, would your Republican Illinois come to your defense?)

THE HILL
— How important is candidate age? – MARK MELLMAN (DIERSEN: How old are you? I am 70. All my critics/opponents, all their operatives and all their dupes promote age discrimination a) because they want to get rid of those who are older than they are and/or b) because they want to curry favor with those who promote age discrimination.) 
https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/460812-mellman-how-important-is-candidate-age
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Candidates are not simply bundles of age, race and résumé. They have issue positions and priorities, personality traits and personal stories, that weren’t measured in these conjoint experiments. We don’t know how much age matters compared to those factors. More broadly, moving from the generic to the specific is not always clear cut. In our example, while 70 may be too old, not all 70-year olds are too old. That’s exactly what a new CBS YouGov poll on candidate age tells us. In response to questions specific to each candidate, just 37 percent said Sanders was “too old” to be president, 31 percent said Biden was and only 5 percent believed Warren is too old to be president. Polls seem to tell us that age is important. But failure to ask the right questions, in the right ways, can lead analysts and strategists astray.)

My $53,316/year Civil Service Retirement System pension is only 42% of what my GAO salary was in 1997 in today’s dollars.)

— One Argument for Radical Income Transparency Our research suggests that disagreements about government spending may be partly based on misperceptions about how much others make – Oliver Hauser and Michael Norton (DIERSEN: My Civil Service Retirement System pension is $53,316/year.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/one-argument-for-radical-income-transparency-11568167323
(FROM THE ARTICLE: How much do people actually know about the income and wealth of people who live around them? And how does what they think they know skew the way they think about government taxes and spending? Recent research we conducted suggests that the answer to those two questions are: Not much and a lot. An emerging body of research suggests that citizens’ preferences for spending on public goods—from social programs to health care to infrastructure—are based in part about who they believe contributes and benefits. However, we discovered that many people are unaware of the true extent of inequality where they live. And in some cases, their beliefs are dramatically different than reality.)

My retirement income is far less because my Democrat superiors in the federal government wasted my career and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)

https://thehill.com/opinion/technology/460595-liberals-haunted-by-social-media-tactics-they-use-against-the-right
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The reason why liberal editors are so distraught that independent conservative journalists are publishing evidence of the racist, anti-Semitic, and otherwise vile sentiments expressed by their supposedly “objective” employees comes down — as it usually does — to power. Many journalists are in the profession not to inform the public, but to gain the power to destroy people who question them — and they don’t like those tactics being turned against them. “[U]sing journalistic techniques to target journalists and news organizations … is fundamentally different from the well-established role of the news media in scrutinizing people in positions of power,” the Times wrote in its article — which was of course labeled “news,” not “opinion.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “San Francisco’s actions pose a nonfrivolous constitutional threat,” the lawsuit argues. “Defendants are intent on targeting the NRA for its advocacy, chilling the NRA’s and its members’ rights of free speech and association under the First Amendment, all with an eye to silence the NRA from the debate on Second Amendment rights.” . . . “This action is an assault on all advocacy organizations across the country,” NRA lawyer William A. Brewer III said in a statement. “Fortunately, the NRA, like all U.S. citizens, is protected by the First Amendment.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “This action is an assault on all advocacy organizations across the country,” said William A.

Fortunately, the NRA, like all U.S. citizens, is protected by the First Amendment.”)

BLOOMBERG
— Richest Would Have Lost Half Their Wealth Under Elizabeth Warren’s Tax Plan – Rich Miller and Laura Davison (DIERSEN: How soon will the Democrats who run Illinois, your county, your township/ward, your municipality, your school district, your park district, etc. impose a wealth tax on you? How much will they say that your home, your vehicles, your possessions, your etc. is worth?)
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-09-10/richest-could-lose-hundreds-of-billions-under-warren-wealth-tax
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Massachusetts Senator Warren has proposed that the wealthiest 75,000 households pay an annual tax of 2% on each dollar of their net worth above $50 million. It would rise to 3% on every dollar above $1 billion. She has said this would combat rising inequality. Critics have charged that the tax would be hard to administer and easy to avoid. They’ve also questioned its constitutionality.)

When I was a federal employee, if I had put my own personal selfish self-interest first, I would have been a Democrat. If I had been a Democrat, the federal government would have promoted me into its Senior Executive Service long before I was 40 years old.)

FINDLAW
— Elements of Libel and Slander
https://injury.findlaw.com/torts-and-personal-injuries/elements-of-libel-and-slander.html
(FROM THE POSTING: Defamatory Statements One essential element in any defamation action is that the defendant knowingly or negligently published something defamatory about the plaintiff. A communication may be considered defamatory “if it tends so to harm the reputation of another as to lower him in the estimation of the community or to deter third persons from associating with him,” according to the American Restatement of Torts (or “The Restatement”). Examples of defamatory statements are virtually limitless and may include any of the following: . . . A communication that exposes a plaintiff to ridicule A communication that reflects negatively on the plaintiff’s character, morality, or integrity . . . A communication that suggests that the plaintiff suffers from a physical or mental defect that would cause others to refrain from associating with the plaintiff)
— 3 Crimes For Threatening a Politician (DIERSEN: Of course, I reserve my right to sue anyone, and their accomplices, a) who hints/implies/argues/shouts that I am not a journalist, b) who hints/implies/argues/shouts that I harassed anyone, and/or c) who threatens to stop anyone from reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.)
https://blogs.findlaw.com/blotter/2012/09/3-crimes-for-threatening-a-politician.html

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ever think of threatening a politician? With the endless loop of commercials and phone calls, it’s only our sanity and knowledge that threatening a politician may be a crime that stops most of us from doing so. But every year, a few people do lose it and lash out with threats and actions against a politician or political candidate.)
