— The importance of putting together a budget – Ashley Bihun (COMMENT: When I ran for the open Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) Treasurer office in 2004, I had served as the Treasurer for the a) Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter for 3 years, b) American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter for 3 years, and c) Illinois Center Right Coalition for 2 years. I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt, I had earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, and I had become a licensed CPA. I had worked for GAO for almost 18 years and for IRS for almost 9 years. I stressed to MTRO members that budgeting was a very important planning exercise. I stressed that I would draft a budget for MTRO each year, get the other MTRO officers to approve a draft budget, get the MTRO membership to approve a budget, and get MTRO to follow that budget. But my opponent for that MTRO Treasurer office, his operatives, and his dupes, including two CPAs, not only viciously attacked budgeting, they viciously attacked me personally. Just before the vote, they demonized, denigrated, and condemned me as not being a team player and that I irritate everyone around me. My opponent got 69 votes and I got only 13 votes. Since 2002, MTRO has punished me for Jim Ryan’s losing to Blagojevich because I supported Patrick O’Malley in the Republican gubernatorial primary. Since 2004, MTRO has punished me for my not covering up the wrongdoing of a MTRO officer and for Andrew McKenna losing the Republican U.S. Senate primary because I allegedly rigged a major MTRO straw poll. Since 2006, MTRO has punished me for Judy Baar Topinka’s losing to Blagojevich. MTRO continues to punish me for the aforesaid.)

— Chicago actor Mike Nussbaum dies at 99, the oldest working actor in the country. – Chris Jones (COMMENT: The Democrats who run the federal government force federal employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran to retire as soon as they are eligible so that they can give their jobs to their Democrat employees who are minority, female, younger, and/or veteran. In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” so that they could give my younger Black subordinate my job and my preferred corner office, and that is exactly what they did.)

I worked almost every Sunday and almost every holiday.)

They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)

— Democrats ever-increasingly promote Taylor Swift.

— While I worked for the Democrats who ran GAO’s Chicago office 1980-1997, they assigned me to supervise all their new-hired Democrat employees who were disabled.

Of course, they did everything that they could to turn the aforesaid employees against me.

— As Joe Biden’s poll numbers flag ahead of next year’s election, it might seem obvious for the president to look to the pop-star billionaire Taylor Swift who endorsed him in 2020, and whose every move is endlessly cataloged by US media. – Robin LEGRAND
