— After Facebook settles class action, Google is sued – JOHN PLETZ (DIERSEN: Have you ever been a member of a class in a class action lawsuit? I was. In 1988, when I was 40 years old, I became an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged my Democrat GAO superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. The members of the class were GAO employees who were White, male, and over age 40. The lawsuit failed because instead of uniting, class members “cut deals” with their Democrat superiors “under the table” to keep their jobs. Class members agreed to help their Democrat superiors get rid of other class members. I should write a book about the class members in GAO’s Chicago office who did everything that they could to get rid of me to keep their jobs. They kept me off audits of IRS. They gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals. They always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes. They did not promote me beyond GS-13. They stressed the following to demonize me, to denigrate me, and to condemn me: a) I was conservative, b) I was Republican, c) I had avoided the draft, d) I was baptized, raised and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, e) I was 100% German American, f) I lived in Crete 1948-1972, g) I had lived in Wheaton since 1978, h) my wife had a good job and we had retirement savings, i) my wife and I had given up trying to have children, j) we did not adopt, k) we did not become foster parents, l) I had owned a 1972 Corvette since 1971, a 1962 Chevy Impala SS collector car since 1989, and a 1968 Dodge Charger R/T collector car since 1994, m) my ancestors had been in America since 1844, n) etc. And then, in 1997, when I was 49 years old, they helped my GAO superiors force me to take their early retirement “offer.”)
