— Even Amid Low Unemployment, Many Workers Struggle Finding A Job – Christian Weller (DIERSEN: What has frustrated your job searches? Since 1997, the following things have frustrated my job searches: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer.” Previous to that, they gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. They would not have taken the aforesaid adverse actions against me if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran.)

The median net worth for householders over the age of 65 was $170,516, while the median net worth for those under 35 was only $6,676. The median net worth also changed based on the education level of householders. For householders with no high school diploma, the study found a median net worth of $9,800. The study indicated a median value of $43,945 for high school graduates. Householders with some level of college, but no degree, generated a median net worth of $49,082. For householders with an associate’s degree, the median net worth was $56,512. Those who earned a bachelor degree generated a median value of $147,148. Finally, for householders with a professional or graduate degree, the median net worth was $240,750. Net Worth by Region The study also featured regional trends in median American net worth.

SUBURBAN LIFE
— DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: Those in Will County affected by war on drugs could see help becoming marijuana entrepreneurs – ALEX ORTIZ (DIERSEN: Wheaton is the DuPage County Seat. The Democrats who run the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (IDCEO) have outrageously designated western Wheaton as being a disproportionately impacted area (DIA), that is, an area that has high rates of arrest, conviction, and incarceration related to cannabis as well as poverty and unemployment. Needless-to-say, that must be a mistake. I ask the following and everyone else who has an interest in Wheaton to ask the IDCEO to immediately rescind its DIA designation: Wheaton Mayor and City Council members, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Milton Township officers and trustees, DuPage County Board Chairman and County Board members, and federal and Illinois officials who represent or seek to represent any part of Wheaton.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The state has designated parts of Will County as “disproportionately impacted” by the war on drugs, which could help local applicants seeking commercial marijuana licenses. Gov. JB Pritzker’s administration released a map of the state this week showing the areas where the state wants to provide opportunities for applicants to benefit from the legalized recreational marijuana industry. The map shows large parts of Joliet, along with smaller parts of Crest Hill, Lockport, Bolingbrook and University Park, as designated areas.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— What do your critics/opponents want? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

My critics/opponents want the following in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and everywhere else in Illinois:
– Pot to be sold
– Video gambling
– Booze to be promoted
– No zoning changes along Roosevelt Road in Wheaton
– More dependency on government
– More dependency on charity 
– LGBTQ activity to be promoted
– Abortion to be promoted
– Mass/illegal immigration
– Abolition of the First Amendment
– Abolition of the Second Amendment
– Patronage
– Political affiliation discrimination
– Reverse discrimination
– Age discrimination
– All the Republican candidates on November 3, 2020 ballots to lose

Further, my critics/opponents want the following:
– Trump to be impeached
– Me to stop putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out
– Me to resign as a Republican Precinct Committeeman
– Me to resign as a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce member

Further, my critics/opponents want to get rid of those who:
– They cannot manipulate

– Are older than they are
– Have more free time and/or money than they have

– Do not share their religion

I should write a book about my critics/opponents in the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, Illinois, etc. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout, their operatives, and their dupes.

My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes view the federal government as being a “dumping ground” for inferior people.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Rosenberg resident Delia Villarreal said citizens should have the right to express themselves. “You were voted (on council) to hear the concerns (of the people),” she said. “It’s the price you have to pay. You asked to run for city council. We got you up there. If you don’t like it, then you shouldn’t run for city council.”)

ATLANTA JOURNAL CONSTITUTION
— Need or desire keeping record number of older workers on the job – Christopher Quinn (DIERSEN: I should write a book about forced early retirement. Democrats run the federal government. They want everyone to know that they waste the careers of and get rid of federal employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they did not promote to GS-13 (currently $98,198) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $116,040) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $136,495) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $165,500) by age 40.)

— A Survey of 1,003 People Shows Millennials Lie on Resumes 5 Times More Often Than Baby Boomers Gen Z lies seven times more often. – Minda Zetlin
https://www.inc.com/minda-zetlin/millennials-gen-z-lie-on-resumes-more-than-baby-boomers.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But apparently, the younger you are, the likelier you are to be untruthful, at least when applying for a job. Eleven percent of Millennials said they had lied on their résumés, and 14 percent of Gen Z respondents said they’d done it. Only 2 percent of Baby Boomers said they’d ever lied on a résumé. And they don’t feel bad about it. While 54 percent of men and 42 percent of women who lied in all age groups felt guilty about doing so, only 27 percent of Millennials did. The difference may be changing attitudes about employment and employers.)

ASSOCIATION FOR TALENT DEVELOPMENT
— Don’t Make Risky Assumptions – Ken O’Quinn (DIERSEN: What assumptions do you make about those who read what you write? The only legitimate reason to read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails is to get information to help defend and advance conservative Republican principles. Nevertheless, I have always been fully aware that some read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails to get information to help them dismiss, discredit, belittle, badmouth, intimidate, insult, demonize, denigrate, and/or condemn me. I should write a book those who read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails to get information to help them dismiss, discredit, belittle, badmouth, intimidate, insult, demonize, denigrate, and/or condemn me.)

STANDARD MEDIA
— Do you need a higher degree or is work experience sufficient? – Nancy Nzalambi (DIERSEN: According to this article, “A degree earned 20 years ago may be useless now.” Of course, my critics/opponents stress that all my education, paid work experience, professional certifications, and professional license are at least 21 years old.)
https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/lifestyle/article/2001334657/do-you-need-a-higher-degree-or-is-work-experience-sufficient
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Employers are lured by your work experience, but you must have the relevant experience to appeal to them more. Work experience should highly relate with the job that you are looking for. Your experience has to show some aspect of growth. You are more marketable when there are quantifiable results from the time and effort you put into work.)

BROOKLYN PAPER
— There is a biblical saying. “Do unto others as you would have done unto you.” – STEPHANIE THOMPSON (DIERSEN: How do people treat you? One can assume that people treat you like they want you to treat them. I should write a book about how people in my neighborhood, in my precinct, in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois have treated me since I moved to Wheaton in 1978. I would focus on those who read my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, but who a) fail/refuse to share relevant information with me and/or b) fail/refuse to return my phone calls. I would focus on those who dismiss me, discredit me, belittle me, badmouth me, intimidate me, insult me, demonize me, denigrate me, and/or condemn me. I would focus on those who ascribe evil motive and/or bad judgment to everything that I do or that I do not do. I would focus on those who blame me for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. I would focus on those who blame me for all the losses that Republicans have suffered in Illinois since 2000. I would focus on those who forced me to sue them. I would focus on those who focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate. I would focus on those who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican, but who do not talk and/or act like they are religious, conservative, and/or Republican. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and/or Illinois, their operatives, and their dupes.)

PEORIA JOURNAL STAR & MORTON TIMES NEWS
— OUTSTANDING: Morton bans recreational marijuana businesses within village limits – Steve Stein (DIERSEN: I commend Morton Mayor Jeff Kaufman. Municipalities and counties that do not ban the sale of recreational pot can no longer claim to be family friendly. At Wheaton City Council’s meeting yesterday evening, Tim Whelan and I urged Wheaton Mayor Phil Suess and the Wheaton City Council to make Wheaton the first city in Illinois to ban the sale of recreational pot. Meeting attendees included Rick Carney, Gary Muehlfelt, Yadav Nathwani, Janet Shaw, John Zaruba, and Mandy Zaruba. Christopher Zaruba was sworn in to fill the Wheaton North District City Council vacancy.)
https://www.pjstar.com/news/20190701/morton-bans-recreational-marijuana-businesses-within-village-limits
https://www.mortontimesnews.com/news/20190701/morton-bans-recreational-marijuana-businesses-within-village-limits
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Recreational marijuana businesses won’t be allowed in Morton. After a brief discussion, Village Board members voted unanimously Monday to ban recreational marijuana growers, cultivation centers, and dispensing, processing and transporting facilities that could have set up shop in Morton after the passage last week of a new law legalizing recreational marijuana within Illinois. “This is the tip of the spear,” village attorney Pat McGrath told board members. “I’ll be bringing more ordinances to you before Jan. 1, 2020, that deal with other issues caused by the state law, like public possession of marijuana.” Just recently, the General Assembly approved and Gov. JB Pritzker signed into law a bill that legalized the use of recreational marijuana. The measure allows ordinances that can not only ban such businesses but also to create to “reasonable” zoning restrictions for cultivation centers, craft growers, processing organizations and dispensaries. On-site consumption may also be regulated by local governments, according to summaries provided by the governor’s office. Trustee Rod Blunier asked McGrath if businesses that sell products with CBD oil are included in Morton’s ban. They are not, the village attorney said, as long as they’re selling products that contain less than the federal legal limit of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Mayor Jeff Kaufman said the recreational pot ban in Morton was his idea. “I asked Pat (McGrath) to write the ordinance that was presented (Monday) to the trustees,” he said. “These businesses are not something Morton residents want. Just like video gambling.” Trustees voted 5-0 in 2009 and 4-3 in 2013 — with then-Mayor Ron Rainson casting the deciding vote — to ban state-approved video gambling in Morton. The 2013 vote followed two months of heated debate at Village Board meetings and on social media. An audience of about 150, mostly video gambling supporters, gasped when Rainson announced his vote. There were about a half-dozen audience members Monday, and no public comments on the recreational marijuana business ban. . .Illinois has 55 medical marijuana dispensaries, none in Morton. These dispensaries are expected to get the first shot at licenses for recreational marijuana dispensaries.)

CENTRAL ILLINOIS PROUD
— OUTSTANDING: Morton Village Board votes to ban cannabis businesses 
https://www.centralillinoisproud.com/news/local-news/morton-village-board-votes-to-ban-cannabis-businesses/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Morton Village Board voted unanimously 6-0 Monday to ban cannabis businesses, according to Village Clerk Sam Ritthaler. The ordinance includes cultivation centers, craft growers, processing organizations, dispensing organizations, or transporting organizations. Governor J.B. Pritzker last month signed a bill allowing recreational marijuana sales in Illinois, though the bill does allow municipalities to ban sale and manufacture. Organizations and municipalities also have some control over use. Under the new Morton ordinance, if a business is found to be selling marijuana, it will face a fine of up to $750 for each offense. Each day a violation is found is considered a separate offense.)
