I should write a book about the aforesaid.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Facing tough Recession decisions, Mayor Tom Weisner declared early that year the Fourth of July Parade would be axed from the city budget. That announcement was quickly followed by another from Roosevelt-Aurora American Legion Post 84 Cmdr. Norris “Doc” Erickson and Ald. Stephanie Kifowit, a member of the post and now a state representative, who declared the veterans group was taking over the parade so the community could “continue to show our pride in our country.” In a matter of months but with a lot of hard work, the post raised $30,000 to keep this tradition going. A couple years later, the city got back in the game, splitting the cost with the Legion 50/50 and taking on more of the operations. “By 2019, the city was paying two-thirds and we were paying one-third,” noted current Post 84 Cmdr. Mike Eckburg, adding that the cost of the parade was reduced to around $15,000 to $19,000.)

PITTSBURGH POST GAZETTE
— Retired Pittsburgh police officer sues city, alleging reverse discrimination over benefits denial for partner – TORSTEN OVE
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A retired Pittsburgh police officer has sued the City of Pittsburgh on reverse discrimination grounds, saying the city has denied benefits for his girlfriend while providing them to partners in same-sex relationships. Richard Nicholas, an officer from 1994 until his retirement in 2015, said the city has refused to grant health care benefits to his domestic partner, Kim Koller, because they are not gay. The complaint, filed in U.S. District Court this week, says the city has a pattern of discriminating against heterosexual couples while granting benefits to same-sex partners, citing an example involving a retired female officer and her female partner. The suit says that under city policy, domestic partners of employees and retired employees get the same benefits as spouses.)

Constructively, my Democrat superiors rendered worthless the following that I earned: a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970, b) job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, c) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and d) a job-related professional license when I was 32.)

I should write a book about critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes and the pretexts that they have used. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois.
