My outstanding parents invested in me a) by having me baptized as a Missouri Synod Lutheran (MSL) in 1948, b) by sending me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961, c) by sending me to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod, and d) by having me confirmed as a MSL in 1962.

I had partial red/green color blindness. During my junior and senior years, and the summer in between, I washed dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresge in Chicago Heights. In my defense, I took college preparatory courses, I graduated in the upper 20% of my class, my ACT score was 24, I got accepted by UIC, and with the money that I earned washing dishes, I bought a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in May of 1966.

My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used the aforesaid to demonize me, to denigrate me, and to condemn me as having always been filthy rich. Where did your money come from? My money came from what I earned a) doing yard work in 1962, 1963, and 1964, b) delivering newspapers 1962-1966, c) washing dishes 1964-1966, d) cleaning golf shoes, chipping slag, and pumping gasoline in 1966, e) delivering mail 1966-1969, f) selling tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971, g) pumping gasoline 1971-1972, h) collecting delinquent taxes 1971-1980, and i) auditing federal agencies 1980-1997.

FROM NATIONAL CENTER-LEFT LEANING SOURCES
— Democrats say that Trump says “Nixon had no support … I have great Jim Jordan.” Who supports Trump in your municipality, in your township, and in your county? Who leads the Trump campaign in your municipality, in your township, in your county, and in Illinois?
— Democrats say “Thousands of migrants head to Mexico city seeking U.S. asylum.”

— Democrats say that “Nearly 70 percent of Republicans support Trump’s 2024 White House bid.” Democrats run America. Democrats want the candidate who wins the 2024 Republican presidential primary to be the candidate who Democrats believe will be the easiest to defeat in the 2024 general election.
— Democrats say “Voluntary childlessness has become a topic of debate.” Government is nasty/vicious. Politics is nasty/vicious. Democrats are nasty/vicious. My Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates not only viciously demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me because my wife and I gave up trying to have children, because we did not adopt, and because we did not become foster parents, they a) hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I lied about our efforts to have children and b) severely punished me for that. In 1989, to punish me, they threw me off audits of IRS, gave me an adverse job assignment, gave me unfair performance expectations, turned my subordinates against me, gave me an unfair performance appraisal, and ranked me at the bottom of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes. They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that if my wife and I had children, a) I would not have been able to pass the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, earn a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, become a licensed CPA in 1981, or get promoted in 1986 and b) my wife and I would not have been able to have a house built in Wheaton in 1984, my wife would not have been able to earn a bachelor’s degree in finance from DePaul in 1986, and I would not have been able to buy a 1962 Impala SS collector car in 1989. I should write a book about the aforesaid. Better yet, I should sue my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates. I would focus on those who had children and/or had spouses who had little or no income and who blamed that for all their problems.

— Democrats say “As US job market cools, starting salaries are dropping in some sectors.” According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, the federal government always grossly overpaid me.
