— Millennials: Saving $1 million is easier than you think – Gail MarksJarvis (DIERSEN: How much money do the operative and the dupes for your critics/opponents have? Virtually all the operatives and the dupes for my critics/opponents have severe financial problems. They hint/imply/argue/shout that they will do anything for money. They paint themselves as being “thugs for hire.”)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Could you save $1 million over a lifetime? Millennials seem to think becoming a millionaire is completely out of the question. But many of them are wrong and are already blundering their way toward $1 million without realizing it. With a little more attention to handling their money, many could end up much better off than their parents. A new Wells Fargo survey shows that two-thirds of millennials figure it’s ridiculous to assume they will ever accumulate $1 million. But 59 percent are already going through the discipline of saving. The trouble is many are flying blind, unaware of where they should stick the money so their good intentions turn into powerful action. One obstacle for nonsavers is their view of adulthood. About 85 percent of millennials say that saving for retirement is an important part of becoming a “financial adult.” Yet many see that adult moment arriving at age 32, not at 25 when small savings make $1 million more attainable.)
— Signs your job may be at risk – Chris Dessi (DIERSEN: I should write a book about the signs that my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government gave me that they wanted to get rid of me. They would not have wanted to get rid of me if I had been a Democrat, a minority, a female, or a veteran.)
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Trumps say “To crossover Republicans, voting for Hillary Clinton is a first step to fixing GOP.” Anti-Trumps want the GOP to be more 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.
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Trumps say “Trump’s love affair with presidency is over.”
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Ever-increasingly, anti-Trumps viciously demonize, viciously denigrate, and viciously condemn Trump and Trump’s supporters. Ever-increasingly, anti-Trumps make it clear that if Clinton wins, anti-Trumps will get rid of Trump and get rid of Trump’s supporters once and for all. Ever-increasingly, if Clinton wins, it looks like RINOs will dissolve the Republican Party. RINOs are much closer to Democrats than they are to Republicans.

What if my critics/opponents would get together in the Wheaton Bowl Banquet Hall or in a larger venue and vote on who they want to replace me as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor? Who would win the vote? Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents want the next GOPUSA Illinois Editor to serve as their operative or as their dupe.)

Of course, needless-to-say, anti-Trumps, pro-Trumps, and everyone else have blamed me, are blaming me, and will forever blame me for everything that is bad.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If you’re a working journalist and you believe that Donald J. Trump is a demagogue playing to the nation’s worst racist and nationalistic tendencies, that he cozies up to anti-American dictators and that he would be dangerous with control of the United States nuclear codes, how the heck are you supposed to cover him? Because if you believe all of those things, you have to throw out the textbook American journalism has been using for the better part of the past half-century, if not longer, and approach it in a way you’ve never approached anything in your career. If you view a Trump presidency as something that’s potentially dangerous, then your reporting is going to reflect that. You would move closer than you’ve ever been to being oppositional. That’s uncomfortable and uncharted territory for every mainstream, nonopinion journalist I’ve ever known, and by normal standards, untenable. But the question that everyone is grappling with is: Do normal standards apply? And if they don’t, what should take their place? Covering Mr. Trump as an abnormal and potentially dangerous candidate is more than just a shock to the journalistic system. It threatens to throw the advantage to his news conference-averse opponent, Hillary Clinton, who should draw plenty more tough-minded coverage herself. She proved that again last week with her assertion on Fox News Sunday that James Comey, director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, had declared her to be truthful in her answers about her decision to use a private email server for official State Department business — a grossly misleading interpretation of an F.B.I. report that pointed up various falsehoods in her public explanations. And, most broadly, it upsets balance, that idealistic form of journalism with a capital “J” we’ve been trained to always strive for. But let’s face it: Balance has been on vacation since Mr. Trump stepped onto his golden Trump Tower escalator last year to announce his candidacy. For the primaries and caucuses, the imbalance played to his advantage, captured by the killer statistic of the season: His nearly $2 billion in free media was more than six times as much as that of his closest Republican rival. Now that he is the Republican nominee for president, the imbalance is cutting against him. Journalists and commentators are analyzing his policy pronouncements and temperament with an eye toward what it would all look like in the Oval Office — something so many of them viewed as an impossibility for so long.)

— No degree? No problem as tight labor market changes the game – Paul Davidson (DIERSEN: Do you have a college degree? In 1971, having a job-related bachelor’s degree was a requirement for IRS to hire you at the GS-7 level (currently $43,915/year). In 1980, having a job-related master’s degree was a requirement for GAO to hire you at the GS-9 level (currently $53,717/year).
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Less educated workers are suddenly hot commodities. San Diego-based Get It Done House Buyers, which buys homes to sell at a profit, began hiring salespeople without a Bachelor’s degree eight months ago because of the tight labor market, says CEO Todd Toback. Turns out they’re his best performers. “They’re really, really hungry,” Toback says. Now, instead of reviewing resumes, he says, “We see how people act during interviews.” One of those salesmen, Raymond Sylverne, 28, formerly a full-time Marine, says he was aware of employers’ bias toward college grads but, “I had confidence. If I had a college degree but couldn’t convert (sales, I’d) be useless.” The 4.9% jobless rate has left employers a shrinking pool of available workers, forcing many to hire candidates with only high school diplomas or less for jobs that previously required four-year degrees. Many recruiters are pleased with the results, prompting them to modify how they evaluate applicants.The shift is a boon for workers who have struggled on the outer edges of a labor market that has long deemed a college degree a requirement.)
