— School supply giveaway Saturday in Park Forest – Jerry Shnay (DIERSEN: My outstanding parents never had to seek charity; my critics/opponents 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. My father made enough money to pay the family’s bills by working in the office of a chemical plant in Chicago Heights and by working second jobs. He fought type 1 diabetes from age 14, was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma, and never attended college. He did not buy a new car until he was 45 in 1967 and it was a bottom of the line 2-door Chevy with almost no options.)

— CPS vows ‘balanced’ $5.4B budget; CTU sees cuts, threatens strike – Stefano Esposito and Rosalind Rossi (DIERSEN: During the 1980s and 1990s, the Democrats who ran GAO were more that happy to use Republican-lead budget cuts to get rid of the agency’s employees like me who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran. Were it not for those Republican-lead budget cuts, I might still be a GAO employee.)
— Whatever they’re called, appointments reinforce ‘insider’ image of townships – Editorial (DIERSEN: What do township officials and township employees think of you? How do they treat you? What do they say about you? I should write a book about those past and present Milton Township officials and employees a) who blame me for all of their problems, b) who blame me for all of your problems, c) who blame me for all of my problems, and e) who blame me for all of everyone’s problems. They blame me for all the defeats that Republicans have suffered in Illinois since 2000. They talk and act like they have been promised lots of money, a new home, a new car, a sweetheart job, a sweetheart contract, favorable legislation, and lots more if they succeed in stopping me from putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out. They work harder against me than they have ever worked against any Democrat. They focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate. They hint/imply/argue/shout that I am a religious hypocrite and even worse things.)

Based on how hard their operatives and their dupes work against me, my “Republican” critics/opponents must be saying extremely slanderous things about me. My “Republican” critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois have always worked harder against me than they have ever worked against any Democrat. My “Republican” critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, or RINOs.)

McCaskill (DIERSEN: From what I see, many, if not most of my “Republican” critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are going to vote for Clinton.

— A disenchanted Republican, fearing Trump, launches third-party run – GINGER GIBSON (DIERSEN: Who wants you to be disenchanted? The following want me to be disenchanted: those who a) reject planks in the Republican Party platform and work against those like me who support those planks, b) reject planks in the Illinois Republican Party platform and work against those like me who support those planks, c) reject the Milton Township Republican Central Committee resolution against video gambling and work against those like me who support that resolution, d) focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate, e) were defendants in lawsuits that I have filed, f) are operatives for the aforesaid, and/or g) are dupes for the aforesaid and those 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.)
— Donald Trump teases plan to tackle costs of child care (DIERSEN: How rich were your parents? During the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s, my father made enough money working in the office of a chemical plant and working second jobs a) that he could send my brother and me to Missouri Synod Lutheran grade schools and b) that my mother could stay home and raise my brother and me. My critics/opponents have always used that to demonize me, to denigrate me, and to condemn me as having been born with a silver spoon in my mouth and as having always been privileged.)

— The Great Affluence Fallacy – David Brooks (DIERSEN: Overwhelmingly, operatives and dupes for my critics/opponents have severe financial problems. They talk and act like they will do anything for money.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As we’ve gotten richer, we’ve used wealth to buy space: bigger homes, bigger yards, separate bedrooms, private cars, autonomous lifestyles. Each individual choice makes sense, but the overall atomizing trajectory sometimes seems to backfire. According to the World Health Organization, people in wealthy countries suffer depression by as much as eight times the rate as people in poor countries.)

SEIB (DIERSEN: From what I see, the more of the following that you are, the harder that anti-Trumps work to get rid of you: Protestant, German national origin, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owner, and your ancestors have been in America for a long time. Who are the leading anti-Trumps in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, and in Illinois? How hard are they working to get rid of you?)

Here’s Some Early Evidence – GEORGI KANTCHEV, CHRISTOPHER WHITTALL and MIHO INADA (DIERSEN: For many years now, the Democrats who run the federal government have kept interest rates far below inflation. Consequently, the buying power of your savings is rapidly going down. That is one reason why I took money out of savings to buy a new 2016 Ford Mustang earlier this year.)
— Trump Is Worth $4.5 Billion, According to a New Report – Alicia Adamczyk (DIERSEN: When I was 29 years old, in a 4-page article in its February 1978 issue, Money Magazine put my net worth at $53,950. Of course, needless-to-say, my Democrat IRS superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates used that to demonize me, to denigrate me, and to condemn me as being undeservedly filthy rich.)
