— Gun owners describe to Pew survey why they own their weapons – Jennifer Harper
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A sign of the times, perhaps: Gun owners in the United States continue to cite “protection” as the major reason they have a gun, according to a new Pew Research Center poll which reveals that 32% of Americans say they personally own a gun. Political persuasion plays a role. “About half of conservative Republicans (51%) say they own a gun. That compares with 38% of moderate and liberal Republicans, 24% of conservative and moderate Democrats, and 16% of liberal Democrats,” an analysis of the findings said. “While a sizable majority of gun owners (71%) say they enjoy having a gun, an even larger share (81%) say they feel safer owning a gun,” the analysis noted. The survey found that 72% of owners advise that “protection” is their major motivation — and it surpasses the shares of gun owners who cite other reasons for gun ownership — such as use in hunting, fishing, sports shooting or to satisfy a job requirement. “Gun ownership is far more common among residents of rural areas (47%) than among people living in suburbs (30%) or urban areas (20%). Republicans and Republican-leaning independents (45%) are far more likely than Democrats and Democratic leaners (20%) to report owning a gun,” the findings continued. Meanwhile, just 12% of the gun owners said they were worried about having a gun in the home.)

— Every parent should fight back vs. the left’s war on merit – Karol Markowicz (COMMENT: My critics/opponents have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I owe none of my accomplishments in life to merit, but that I owe all my accomplishments in life to my benefitting tremendously from discrimination against Democrats, minorities, females, veterans, non-Protestants, non-German Americans, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on what they owe their accomplishments in life to.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It used to be obvious that merit is part of achieving the American dream. But like it’s doing to so many self-evident things, the left is attempting to destroy this idea as it pursues a Sovietesque system of “equity.” Parents might not see merit’s decline as a more pressing concern than their children being told they can be any gender they choose from day to day. Most kids are academically average. Why fight over merit when there are so many other ideological fights to be had? Parents have to see merit as part and parcel of the left’s push to impose its ridiculous concepts on our kids. The idea that everyone can have an equal outcome has been tried again and again in failed socialist countries. When the left succeeds in ending merit in a school, you can be sure the rest of the woke ideas parents abhor have already taken over the curriculum. Beyond that, our schools’ loss of rigor has dumbed down our country, and the retreat from pursuing merit has slowed success for so many kids.)

NEW YORK TIMES
— Democrats say “Trump Dominates in New Iowa Poll.”
— Hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters want Republicans to “narrow the field.”
— Democrats say “Ramaswamy’s Faith Singled Out in DeSantis Super PAC Memo. An opposition research memo suggests that Vivek Ramaswamy, who has been gaining on Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida in some polls, “was very much ingrained in India’s caste system.” My critics/opponents have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I owe none of my accomplishments in life to merit, but that I owe all my accomplishments in life to my benefitting from discrimination against Democrats, minorities, females, veterans, non-Protestants, non-German Americans, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on what they owe their accomplishments in life to.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The document’s first paragraph, addressing Mr. Ramaswamy’s past support for inheritance taxes, draws a link between that policy position and his Hindu upbringing as the son of Indian immigrants. “Ramaswamy — a Hindu who grew up visiting relatives in India and was very much ingrained in India’s caste system — supports this as a mechanism to preserve a meritocracy in America and ensure everyone starts on a level playing field,” the document states. . .Asked to comment on the reason for highlighting Mr. Ramaswamy’s religion and background, the super PAC’S chief executive, Chris Jankowski, said in a statement: “We are highlighting that his philosophy of government is a direct reflection of his life experience. When his parents moved here from India, they had an 85 percent inheritance tax. In fact, his support of the inheritance tax is connected to the argument he makes in his book against meritocracy.”)
— Democrats say “Courts Need to Protect Press Freedoms.” Since 2000, my critics/opponents have shouted at the leaders of the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) that because I have been a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 2000, they have the power to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters, and failing that, they have the power to dictate what I include and what I do not include in those newsletters. I should write a book about the many big adverse actions that IRP, DCRCC, and MTRO leaders have taken and continue to take against me since 2000.
— Democrats say “The 6 Kinds of Republican Voters.” If you are a Republican, what kind are you? I am a “Traditional Conservative,” but my critics/opponents to the left of me demonize me, denigrate me, and condemn me as being “Right Wing.” Since at least at least the 1970s, the leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican have ever-increasingly been “Moderate Establishment.” They reject the individual responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving), and/or other planks in the Republican Party platform. They ever-increasingly focus on driving out of the Republican Party Traditional Conservatives and Right Wingers out of the Republican Party. I should write a book about the aforesaid. Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Moderate Establishment (14%). Highly educated, affluent, socially moderate or even liberal and often outright Never Trump. The Traditional Conservatives (26%). Old-fashioned economic and social conservatives who oppose abortion and prefer corporate tax cuts to new tariffs. They don’t love Mr. Trump, but they do support him. The Right Wing (26%). They watch Fox News and Newsmax. They’re “very conservative.” They’re disproportionately evangelical. They believe America is on the brink of catastrophe. And they love Mr. Trump more than any other group. The Blue Collar Populists (12%). They’re mostly Northern, socially moderate, economic populists who hold deeply conservative views on race and immigration. Not only do they back Mr. Trump, but he himself probably counted as one a decade ago. The Libertarian Conservatives (14%). These disproportionately Western and Midwestern conservatives value small government. They’re relatively socially moderate and isolationist, and they’re on the lower end of Trump support compared with other groups. The Newcomers (8%). They don’t look like Republicans. They’re young, diverse and moderate. But these disaffected voters like Democrats and the “woke” left even less.)
— How electable are you? Ever-increasingly, hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters shout that if you are a Republican, the more demographics that you share with Trump, the less electable that you are. I share the following demographics with Trump: heterosexual, conservative, Republican, White, male, older, Protestant, German American, our ancestors have been in America for a long time, married, non-poor, draft-avoider, and gun-owner.

NEW YORK MAGAZINE
— Democrats say “DeSantis Targeting Ramaswamy in Debate a Sure Sign He’s Losing.” Who targets you? I should write a book about those who target me. I would focus on those who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. I would focus on those who destroy those like me a) who they cannot manipulate or dominate, b) who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) who refuse to pander to them, d) who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, e) who refuse to cover up their wrong doing, and/or f) who refuse to give them money.

He worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant, almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, and never earned more than $50,000/year in today’s dollars. My mother never attended high school. I should write a book about my critics/opponents who have always treated me like I am low class. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. I would focus on those who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me.

— What Is the Difference Between a Disciplinary Action and an Adverse Action? (COMMENT: I should write a book about my Democrat GAO, IRS, and Post Office superiors and the adverse actions that they took against me. Of course, my critics/opponents side with my Democrat superiors against me. My critics/opponents reject the equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) plank in the Republican Party platform and/or they promote discrimination against those who are conservative, Republican, White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time to curry favor with those who are liberal, moderate, Libertarian, Green, Independent, RINO, minority, female, younger, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: An adverse action is a more severe form of discipline that affects an employee’s permanent record. Examples of adverse actions include: Demotions, Suspensions of more than 15 days, Removals from federal service)
— Federal Employees Could Be Fired at Any Time for Any Reason, Under a Bill That Was Just Reintroduced – ERICH WAGNER (COMMENT: Democrats run the federal government. Beyond obviously, Roy and Scott have no problem with those Democrats wasting the careers of and getting rid of federal employees who are Republican and conservative, White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, and Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., are the lead sponsors of the Public Service Reform Act (H.R. 3115), which would make career federal workers at-will employees and get rid of most of the avenues currently available to appeal adverse personnel decisions. It also would abolish the Merit Systems Protection Board.”)
