What government offices do they hold and/or have they held? What is their relevant education? What relevant work experience do they have?

In Wheaton, they stopped Republicans from helping sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks. How soon will they succeed in s) stopping Republican candidates and the Milton Township Republican Organization from having entries in the parades and b) stopping the parades and fireworks altogether?)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: This reworking of the now omnipresent Pride flag is not a threat that Nazis will round up the LGBTQ++ crowd and stick them into concentration camps. Instead, the point of the reworked flag is to show that the LGBTQ++ crowd has become so ascendant and powerful in Western society that it has Nazi-like control over others in society. As all who live in totalitarian societies know, criticizing those in power is dangerous. As if to prove precisely that point, on Friday, in England’s Hampshire, police arrested Darren Brady, 51, because “someone has been caused anxiety based on your social media post. That is why you have been arrested.”)
— The United States: Most Racist Nation Ever? – Brent Ramsey and Michael D. Pefley (COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, to get votes from minorities, Democrats shout at everyone a) that Republicans cause all the problems that minorities have and b) that Republicans are White supremacist, Nazis, KKK members, haters, racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things who should be gotten rid of once and for all. I should write a book about the success that my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government had in promoting hatred against federal employees like me who were Republican.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Those that allege the U.S. is a racist nation often cite income disparities between whites and other ethnicities. That’s the narrative that propels the Critical Race Theory initiative that has countless numbers of whites groveling and suffering from irredeemable guilt. White fragility and anti-racism pressures have brainwashed the Woke into endemic guilt over their white skin. Are minorities at the bottom of the income scale due to systemic racism? Hardly! 2020 Census Bureau data shows in stark terms, at least eight non-white ethnic groups do better than the average American, including Whites. Can the paucity of mixed-race marriages be an indicator racist country? How can it be that racist America has a 10% rate of marriages that are of mixed race? This percentage has been steadily rising over the years. In 2021 15% of all marriages were mixed race. And, according to Gallup an overwhelming majority of 94% of Americans approve of mixed marriages. The demographics of America is more diverse than ever and keeps going up year by year. If this were a truly a racist nation, Americans would not show up in droves every time to help their fellow citizens, no matter their race, after a disaster. America has 146 million people that identify as ethnic minorities. The continued lie that the U.S. is a racist nation is a repeated narrative from progressive groups, media, academia, and entertainment and it isn’t true. If the U.S. is racist, how could we welcome so many people from different ethnicities, races and cultures? You sure can’t tell it from U.S. immigration policy. In the data from the Census Bureau, as of 2016, the foreign-born population was in excess of 43 million of which only 8 million are white (18.6%). Why would America welcome millions of non-whites from all over the world to our shores if we were racist through and through? In the area of advanced degrees, 63% of the Masters degrees in 2020 were granted to whites and 37% were granted to minorities. According to the 2020 Census, the white/minority demographic was 61.3% versus 38.7%. The numbers above show that the American higher education system is clearly not racist.)

— The Season of Political Mea Culpas Begins. Apologies Do Not Really Restore Political Credibility. – Stu Cvrk
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Will the media try to provide shade for Democrats by claiming that they’re really old-school moderates as opposed to the flaming lefties that we have seen in Congress over the past two years? Can the credibility of Democrats and their media allies somehow be salvaged in the presence of $5 gasoline, 9.1 percent inflation, and the recession? Despite being wrong for years, we are now supposed to believe that Democrat mea culpas—and we will hear many more before November as the Democrats try to salvage their political hopes—are actually genuine. We’re supposed to believe that we should ignore what they said before, but believe what they say now. Sorry. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.)

I had lived with and had helped support my mother and brother in Crete since 1970 because my father had died suddenly in 1969. I worked full-time for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights 1970 -1971 and then part-time 1971-1972.

In addition to helping support my mother and brother, my Firestone and IRS salaries enabled me to buy a new 1972 Corvette in 1971 and to pay for graduate business courses at Loyola starting in 1972.)
