Of course, needless-to-say, while I attended Crete-Monee High School (CMHS) 1962-1966, UIC 1966-1968, and NIU 1969-1970, my critics/opponents predicted that I would drop out. They cited my parents never attending college, my father being the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma, my mother never attending high school, my just barely making it into the upper 20% of my 1966 CMHS class, my ACT being only 24, my spending my junior and senior years washing dishes in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights, and my working for the Park Forest Post Office 1966-1969.)

— O’Fallon Leaves IMRF – Cole Lauterbach


— ‘Dark money’ ads could give Rauner a boost  Popularity of term limits might just rub off on the governor – Rich Miller  (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents promote term limits. They stress how much better TAPROOT Republican of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee, Milton Township Republican Central Committee, Illinois Center Right Coalition, American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter, GAO, IRS, and the Post Office are since they got rid of me.)
— Top story of the week? Blagojevich’s hair color, of course  Whether gray or white, it’s part of political lore – Doug Finke  (DIERSEN Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes DEMONIZE, DENIGRATE, AND CONDEMN EACH AND EVERY DECISION THAT I MAKE TO INCLUDE OR TO NOT INCLUDE LINKS TO ARTICLES IN GOPUSA ILLINOIS EMAILS. THEY SHOUT THAT IF THEY, OR IF SOMEOME WHO THEY MANIPULATE/DOMINATE, HAD BEEN THE GOPUSA ILLINOIS EDITOR SINCE 2000, REPUBLICANS WOULD NOT HAVE SUFFERED ANY LOSSES IN ILLINOIS SINCE 2000.)

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Kinzinger says “It’s Not Fun Not Supporting The GOP Nominee” and says “Trump’s lack of appeal with conservative voters has led the Illinois congressman to focus more on keeping the Republican majority in the House and follow the lead of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.”  Kinzinger knows that Trump’s “lack of appeal” is with voters who are anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.

They blame me for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems.
