— Food-stamp rolls drop as states decline federally funded benefit – Bloomberg  (DIERSEN: Have you ever been on food stamps?  I have not.  Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used that to hint/imply/argue/shout that I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth and that I have always been privileged.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/sns-wp-blm-food-stamps-ed38a8fe-63d2-11e6-b4d8-33e931b5a26d-20160816-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: High enrollments rankle Republicans, including presidential nominee Donald Trump, who cited that “43 million Americans are on food stamps” as a sign of economic failure in his acceptance address at the Republican National Convention last month. Democrats pledged to protect aid at their party gathering.)
— Watch: State comptroller Leslie Munger says rival Susana Mendoza stinks at math, then flubs multiplication test – Kim Janssen (DIERSEN: Of course, needless-to-say, my nasty, troubled, failed, vicious critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois hint/imply/argue/shout that I stink at everything. In my defense, I passed the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations on my first attempt and I have a bachelor’s degree and thee master’s degrees, six professional certifications, and a professional license. My wife and I are financially secure.  Virtually all the operatives and dupes that my critic/opponents have suffer severe financial, health, and/or other problems. They will do ANYTHING for money, for a new home, for a new car, for a sweetheart job, for a sweetheart contract, for favorable legislation, and/or for anything else of value.  Should I write a book about my nasty, troubled, failed, vicious critics/opponents, their nasty, troubled, failed, vicious operatives, and their nasty, troubled, failed, vicious dupes?  Ever-increasingly, the aforesaid treat the Wheaton Bowl Banquet Hall as being one of their “safe places.”)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/chicagoinc/ct-munger-mendoza-math-comptroller-chicago-inc-20160818-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: After it was explained to her that she had challenged her opponent’s math skills and that a test of her own was only fair, she eventually corrected herself. “Nine threes are 27” she said, before recovering to correctly answer the final question: What is eight times four? Mendoza, quizzed a day later and moments before her speech, also boasted that “I’m good at math” but backed up her bold talk by acing the test without a moment’s hesitation. Munger complained that she had been caught unaware by the test and that “it’s hot and I’ve been up a long time today!”)

TINLEY PARK PATCH
— These are the 25 Most Diverse School Districts in Illinois  (DIERSEN: How diverse was the district where you graduated from high school? If you are a White male, and if you seek a government office or a political office as a Republican, the less diverse that your school district was, the more that anti-Whites, anti-males, and anti-Republicans will call you a racist, a sexist, a bigot, and even worse things.)

ALTERNET
— 10 Subtle Signs You’re About to Get Canned  Employers use some underhanded tactics to get rid of even the best workers. – Cliff Weathers (DIERSEN: To get rid of its employees who were White, male, older, and/or non-veteran, on October 1, 1993, when I was 45 years old and I had 25 years of federal service, GAO “offered” a $25,000 buyout and early retirement to all its employees who had 25 years or more of federal service. GAO ended its $25,000 buyout “offer” 1 year later and ended its early retirement “offer” 4 years later.)
http://www.alternet.org/labor/10-subtle-signs-youre-about-get-canned
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If the company’s goal is to rid itself of its long-term employees, it’s not stopping there. Buyouts are the first step in a larger workplace purge and unfailingly precede targeted firings. Even if company makes their buyout quota, any employee that meets its criteria remains a target for dismissal. So, if you qualify for a buyout that is offered by your company, you may want to consider taking it, according to financial adviser Roger Wohlner. It’s probably the best offer you’re going to get. “If your company has identified you as somebody who might be a good candidate for a buyout offer this generally means you are on their list,” writes Wohlner. “I’ve invariably seen folks who have turned down the first offer finding themselves out of a job within a year or so.”)
