Ever-increasingly, anti-Trumps demonize, denigrate, and condemn those who are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders (except Bill Clinton), and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

— JULY 6, 2017 FLASHBACK: The Cost Of Jobs Officials say jobs are key to reducing violence, but they’re not facing the scale. So WBEZ took a crack at the calculations. – Chip Mitchell (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I held jobs that should have been given to Democrats, to minorities, to females, to younger people, and to veterans. In my defense, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always demonized, denigrated, and condemned all the jobs that I have had as being BAD jobs. So therefore, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes want Democrats, minorities, females, younger people, and veterans to have BAD jobs. GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job. IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have made it very clear that they would never stoop to take the BAD jobs that I had. I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; worked on an automobile assemble line and as a security guard in 1970; sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; pumped gasoline 1971-1972; collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980; and audited federal agencies 1980-1997. )

— What to Do With the Kids This Summer? Put ’Em to Work – BEN SASSE (DIERSEN: My outstanding parents did not have to put me to work. I learned early on that my parents had far less money than many other families had in Crete. That is a major reason why I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; and worked on an automobile assemble line and as a security guard in 1970. My father fought type 1 diabetes from age 14, was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma, never attended college, worked in the office of a chemical plant, almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, did not buy a new car until he was 45 and it was a bottom of the line 2-door Chevy, and died suddenly of heart failure in 1969 when he was 47 and I was 21. My mother was raised on a farm and never attended high school.)
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
— Treasury wrongly ends plan to help save for retirement – Editorial (DIERSEN: According to this article, approximately 55 million Americans lack access to a workplace retirement plan. Do/did you have access to a workplace retirement plan? I paid into the Civil Service Retirement System 1966-1969 and 1971-1997. Most, if not virtually all of the operatives and the dupes who work for my critics/opponents do/did not access to a workplace retirement plan.)
— 4 financial milestones to reach before you retire – Maurie Backman (DIERSEN: How large is your retirement nest egg? 80% of my ending GAO salary in today’s dollars is $98,393. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is only $50,856/year and my Social Security is only $2,028/year so I am $45,509/year short. According to Social Security, I can expect to live 16 more years, so my retirement nest egg should be at least $728,144. Sadly, my retirement net egg is less than that because my Democrat superiors in the federal government wasted my career and forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 4. Amass a large enough nest egg to replace 80% of your yearly income In the absence of a crystal ball, it’s hard to predict exactly what your living expenses will look like in retirement. But as a general rule, you should expect to need at least 80% of what you previously earned times the number of years you expect your retirement to last. The latter is something you may have to guess at, but if it helps (which it should), the Social Security Administration says that 25% of today’s 65 year olds will live past the age of 90. If you’re planning to retire at 66 and would rather be optimistic about your health going forward, then you’d be wise to plan for a 25-year retirement (at a minimum). Assuming that’s the case and you’re currently within a few years of retirement earning $100,000 a year, to be on the safe side, assume you’ll need $80,000 per year times 25 years, or $2 million. Of course, not all of that has to come from independent savings. Say you’re entitled to $2,000 a month, or $24,000 a year, in Social Security benefits. That means you’ll only need $1.4 million in your IRA or 401(k) — less if your investments perform well in retirement, thus generating income, and you withdraw from savings at a moderate pace. If your nest egg has enough to meet that target, or get relatively close, you can feel comfortable pulling the trigger on retirement. Otherwise, it might pay to work a few extra years, amass some more savings, and simultaneously cut down on the number of years you’ll need those savings to pay for. But if you want a shot at a reasonably comfortable retirement lifestyle, you’ll need the right amount of savings to get there. It’s as simple as that. Once you leave your career behind you, you may have limited options for generating additional income. So before you retire, make sure to have a decent chunk of emergency savings, pay off your home, get out of debt, and establish a respectable nest egg. Otherwise, you risk encountering more financial stress later in life than you bargained for.)
— Benjamin Franklin Was America’s First Political Leaker – Andrew Belonsky (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes slanderously hint/imply/argue/shout that I use GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails to provide “confidential information to the public in a surreptitious way and without official authorization.” My critics/opponents want me to get their “authorization” before I do anything. Because they cannot manipulate/dominate me, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes paint me as being a leaker. Should I sue those who hint/imply/argue/shout that I am a leaker?)

— Thinking About Getting an MBA? Here’s What You Need to Consider An MBA can certainly propel your career forward, but you’ll sacrifice a lot to get one. – Maurie Backman (DIERSEN: My Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the undergraduate and graduate courses that I took a) were not job-related, b) did not help me carry out my job duties, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and d) were a distraction. To keep their jobs and to get promoted, my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government focused on getting rid of federal employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
