Do your critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes demonize, denigrate, and condemn your parents as being filthy rich?  Mine do because my outstanding parents had enough money to send me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod.)

FED SMITH
— I Do Solemnly Swear That I Will… – Jeff Neal (DIERSEN: My Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the Constitution of the United States required them to get rid of federal employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran. It is called Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion.)
http://www.fedsmith.com/2017/01/18/i-do-solemnly-swear-that-i-will/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: People in the private sector do not take an oath of office when they get a job. They get an offer, report to work, and that’s it. For federal employees it is different. Reading so many articles about the inauguration that refer to the president-elect taking the oath of office on the 20th of January got me thinking about oaths and what they mean. I have taken that oath of office as a civil service employee. Raising your right hand and swearing to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States” is not something most people take lightly. It is a solemn oath and it means something to most people who take it.)
