http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-workplace-under-trump-0103-biz-20170103-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: OUTSTANDING: E-Verify. A chief rallying cry of President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign involved limiting immigration to boost employment among native-born Americans, and a position paper outlining how he would do that includes mandating E-Verify nationwide to keep employers from hiring those in the country without legal permission. E-Verify, a system for employers to electronically check a new hire’s identity information against government databases before permitting them to work, has been required of federal contractors and vendors since 2007. Some states require public or private employers to use the system; Illinois does not. Critics of E-Verify raise concerns about privacy, implementation burdens and inaccuracies that keep legal immigrants from working.)

— The money numbers you need to know – AP  (DIERSEN: All my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are filled with envy.  They have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that a) I have money because I avoided the draft and because I have always been overpaid and b) that my wife and I have money because we gave up trying to have children, because we did not adopt, and because we did not become foster parents.  They are furious that my wife and I converted much of are income into wealth.  I assert that all my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have spent a far higher percent of their income on “immediate pleasures” than my wife and I have.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20170102/business/301029908/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 1. YOUR WEALTH RATIO  A wealth ratio is a measure of how effectively you’ve converted your lifetime income into wealth. . .2. YOUR OVERHEAD RATIO  How much of your after-tax income is eaten up by basic, must-have expenses? If you’re having trouble making ends meet, calculating your overhead ratio can help explain why. It also can be handy to know when you’re determining if you can afford new loan payments or how much to save in an emergency fund. . .3. YOUR TAX RATES  Your tax bracket doesn’t reveal the amount of taxes paid on your total income. Instead, the bracket (also called the marginal tax rate) reflects how much Uncle Sam claimed of the last dollar you earned. If you’re a single filer in the 25 percent federal tax bracket, the first $9,275 of your 2016 taxable income is taxed at the 10 percent rate, the next $28,375 at 15 percent and the amount above $37,650 at 25 percent.)

— See How Chicago Has Grown Since 1830 — And What It Could Look Like in 2030 – Justin Breen  (DIRSEN: How long have you and your ancestors lived in northeast Illinois?  During the 1840s and 1850s, all my ancestors immigrated to northeast Illinois from what is now Germany. On my father’s side, in 1844, my great great grandfather immigrated to Chicago and worked in a brick factory. In 1854, he homesteaded a farm in southeast Crete Township.  In 1864, he bought 10 acres in northeast Crete and he and my great grandfather began operating Crete’s only hardware store at the northeast intersection of Main and Exchange; tragically, in 1966, the building was torn down and the land sold.  In 1902, my great grandfather had the 1285 Main Street built on the aforesaid 10 acres; it is one of Crete’s landmark homes; tragically, it was sold during the 1940s.  In 1926, my grandfather had 1286 Wood Street built on the aforesaid 10 acres. Between 1948 and 1954, my father, my mother, and I lived in an apartment above the aforesaid hardware store.  In 1954, my father, my mother, my brother, and I moved into the 1286 Wood Street home.  My father lived there until he died suddenly in 1969.  My mother lived there until she died last year.  I lived there until 1972.  My bother continues to live there.)

http://nation.foxnews.com/2017/01/03/luck-donald-trumps-opponents-have-set-him-some-major-successes
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Everything in life is luck.” The words are attributed to Donald Trump and they continue to make regular appearances in the press notwithstanding that the president-elect long ago declared it fake news. “I never made this ridiculous statement,” he tweeted in 2014, in language that sounds much closer to the spirit of @realDonaldTrump.  Even so, it takes nothing away from Mr. Trump’s stunning Nov. 8 victory to note that he enters the Oval Office a very lucky president.)
