— Expand Chicago aldermen’s clout? No, thanks – Editorial (DIERSEN: Who has the most religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, and in Illinois?  To what extent do they use their clout to reward those who give them money, who glorify and praise them, who pander to them, and/or who serve as their operatives or dupes? To what extend do they use their clout to punish/destroy those who do not do the aforesaid?)

— HARDCOPY ARTICLE TITLE: Should I tell my boss I’m ready to move on? – J.T. O’Donnell  (DIERSEN: In early 1971, when I was 22 years old, I told my Firestone Store boss that I had accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile.  He immediately exploded and fired me. Then, Oldsmobile withdrew its job offer saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. Then, unemployed that I was and needing a job to help support my mother and brother because my father had died, I accepted an offer from IRS to be a GS-7 (currently, $44,853/year) Revenue Officer. Then, my former Firestone boss offered me a part-time job which I accepted pumping gasoline.  I held that job until the end of 1972.)

— Don’t let stress over retirement saving overwhelm you – Jill Schlesinger  (DIERSEN: I had much less stress over retirement saving 1966-1969 and 1971-1997 because I was earning credits toward a Civil Service Retirement System pension.  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always been furious about that.  Few of my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes a) have held or are holding jobs that put them in line to get a pension or b) are getting a pension.)

— For blacks, college is not an equalizer – Ray Boshara  (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted a) that instead of me, the Post Office should have hired a Black in 1966, b) that the Post Office should gotten rid of me much sooner than it did so that a Black could have my job, c) that instead of me, IRS should have hired a Black in 1971, d) that instead of me, IRS should have promoted Blacks in 1972, 1973, and 1974, e) that instead of me, GAO should have hired a Black in 1980, f) that instead of me, GAO should have promoted a Black in 1986, and g) that GAO should have gotten rid of me much sooner than it did so that a Black could have my job and my preferred corner office.)

DEPAULIA
— DeVos discontinues Obama-era student loan protections – Danielle Harris  (DIERSEN: What percent of those who take out student loans have no intention of paying those loans back?  Why don’t lenders require parents to co-sign student loans?  Did/could you get a student loan?  I doubt that I could have back in 1966.  I was draft bait. I just barely made it into the upper 20% of my high school class.  My ACT was only 24. Neither of my parents had attended college.  My father had fought type 1 diabetes from age 14 and made only about $40,000/year in today’s dollars.  My mother never attended high school and was a housewife/homemaker.  My vision was never correctable to 20/20 and I have always had partial red/green color blindness.  I had demonstrated no leadership potential in high school; I washed dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights during my junior and senior years and the summer in between. Upon graduation from high school, I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, pumped gasoline, and delivered mail.)

USA TODAY
— The future of jobs: More men doing ‘women’s work’ – Jon Swartz  (DIERSEN: What jobs have you held?  Because all the jobs that I held 1964-1997 were bad ‘men’s work’ jobs, with the exception of the first job that I held, my superiors always had an extremely hard time getting women to take those jobs.  My first job, a ‘women’s work’ and a ‘minorities work’ job washing dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights 1964-1966 was so bad that women and minorities would not take/keep the job.  My understanding is that I was the first and only White male to hold that job and that I held it longer (18 months) than anyone else. The bad ‘men’s work’ jobs that held after were cleaning golf shoes, chipping slag, pumping gasoline, delivering mail, working on an automobile assembly line, working as a security guard, selling tires, automotive services, and major appliances, collecting delinquent taxes, and auditing federal agencies.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— Older Workers Challenge Firms’ Aggressive Pursuit of the Young  In one class action against PricewaterhouseCoopers, two men say they were rejected because they lacked the youthful profile possessed by many PwC recruits – Jacob Gershman  (DIERSEN: How old are you? Democrats use Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion to get rid of their employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran. Non-veteran White males who are seeking a job with the federal government should be advised that with only rare exceptions, a) your career will be wasted and you will be gotten rid of if you do not make GS-13 ($94,610) by age 25, GS-14 ($111,801) by age 30, GS-15 ($131,508) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service ($161,900) by age 40 and b) you will be expected to help your superiors and supervisors get rid of their employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran. When I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old, my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates shouted that I could never have a successful GAO career, that is, that GAO could and should waste my career and get rid of me.  They stressed a) that I was a Republican, b) that I was 31 years old, c) that I was White, d) that I was a male, e) that I was not a veteran, and f) that GAO forced me to take an $18,847 pay cut in today’s dollars, that is, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5, currently $90,173, to GS-9, Step 10, currently $71,326, to transfer from IRS to GAO.)

— Opening Our Borders Would Overwhelm America  When I screened visa applications as a foreign service officer, I learned how many want to come. – Dave Seminara  (DIERSEN: America is especially attractive to citizens of foreign countries who are minority, female, younger, and/or poor because by law, America gives tremendous preference to members of the aforesaid groups.)

— FRONT PAGE: Embraceable You: When the CEO Is a Hugger  Handshakes have given way to bear hugs in some corners of the corporate world as top bosses greet business associates with open arms; ‘You don’t lose your job if you don’t hug.’ – Rachel Feintzeig  (DIERSEN: Are you a hugger?  I never was and I never will be.  I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years 1966-1969 and 1980-1997.  If a White male non-veteran federal employee like me hugged anyone, they would immediately branded a sexist or even worse things and they would be immediately gotten rid of.)
