(DIERSEN: Were you viewed as being “college material?” I was not. Neither of my outstanding parents attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. During my junior and senior years in high school and the summer in between 1964-1966, I washed dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights. But nevertheless, I a) took college-preparatory courses, b) got into the upper 20% of my class, c) got a 24 on the ACT, d) got accepted by UIC in 1966, e) got accepted by NIU in 1969 and graduated with a bachelor of science degree in management in 1970, f) got accepted by Loyola in 1972 and graduated with an MBA in 1976, g) got accepted by DePaul in 1976 and graduated with a master’s degree in accounting in 1980, h) passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, i) passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and j) got accepted by IIT in 1992 and graduated with a master’s degree in finance in 1997. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes attribute the aforesaid to my benefitting from “White privilege.”)

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.)

(DIERSEN: I should write a book about those in Illinois who have wasted my knowledge of IRS the most. I would focus on my a) Democrat GAO superiors and b) Republican U.S. Senators and U.S. Representatives, candidates for the aforesaid positions, their major donors, their political consultants, their fundraisers, their staff members, and their volunteers. I would focus on the aforesaid who demonized, denigrated, and condemned my knowledge of IRS the most. GAO audits IRS. Before I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old, I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $85,935-$97,395/year. My Democrat GAO superiors let me work on audits of IRS’s Criminal Investigation Division 1986-1989 when I was at the GS-13 Step 1-3 levels, currently $102,188-$109,001/year.)

(DIERSEN: In 1970, when I was 21 years old, when I graduated from NIU with a bachelor’s degree in management, potential employers saw me as being draft bait and they were under pressure big time to hire minorities, females, and veterans. They did not believe that my application for a financial hardship draft deferment would be approved. Starting in 1966, when I was 18 years old, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have used my avoiding the draft against me big time. I should write a book about that.)

(DIERSEN: What about bad jobs? Should people be expected to take bad jobs? According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, all the jobs that I had were bad jobs that they would never stoop to take. 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 assembly 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. To qualify myself for better jobs, I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32.)

— Bakersfield Republican Assembly meets Thursday
(DIERSEN: I should survey the Republican Precinct Committeemen in Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois.

I would ask them for suggestions on what I should do to encourage the aforesaid to encourage GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletter readership.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The GBRA is a new conservative grass roots organization chartered under the flagship California Republican Assembly (CRA). The 40th President of the United States Ronald Reagan referred the CRA as “the conscience of the Republican Party.” The GBRA became an official charter of the CRA in late April. The group meets the second Thursday evening of each month from 7-9 and has had meetings at various businesses in Bakersfield. . .The top priority of the GBRA is implementing and developing a Precinct Leader (captain/committeeman) Program in Bakersfield and Kern County. Kern County has not had a Republican precinct program in decades.)
