March 11 Morning Edition



— More Than 1,100 to Take Unpaid Leave for 5 Days at Northeastern Illinois University – Mary Ann Ahern


— A few reasons why men should pay for prenatal care – Heidi Stevens  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, anti-Trumps paint themselves as being anti-men.  How soon, if not already, will anti-Trumps demand that the federal government tax sex?  More specifically, that the federal government require men to pay a tax ($100, $500, $1,000+?) each and every time that they have sex with a woman.  Men would have to file a form with IRS each and every time that they have sex with a woman, or would weekly, monthly, or annual filings be OK?  How much information would men have to disclose on these forms?  Women would also have to file forms to deter and detect cheating, that is, tax fraud. How would IRS enforce this new tax? Just kidding. But, not completely. I worked for IRS’s Collection Division 1971-1980 and I worked for GAO on audits of IRS’s Criminal Investigation Division 1986-1988.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Why are men paying for prenatal care? Men don’t get pregnant!  So if I may … Because lots of men have sex with women.)
— Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade planners will allow gay vets to march – AP (DIERSEN: What do you say to anti-Republicans who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton who increasingly make it clear that they a) do not want Republicans to sponsor entries in Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and b) do not want Republican candidates, elected officials, or party leaders to participate in the parades?)
— ‘Swastika war’: When the neo-Nazis fought in court to march in Skokie – Ron Grossman  (DIERSEN: When will Grossman write about those who HATE Trump supporters; HATE Protestants; HATE conservatives; HATE Republicans; HATE Americans; HATE Whites; HATE males; HATE older people; HATE rich people; HATE gun owners; HATE German Americans; HATE draft avoiders (except Bill Clinton); HATE those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time; HATE current and former government employees and retirees; HATE DINKs (dual income, no kids); HATE owners of vehicles made by General Motors, Ford, or Chrysler; HATE unions; HATE current and former union members; HATE etc.?)
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: In an editorial unethically made to look like a news article, anti-Trumps glorify and praise those individuals, organizations, countries, governments, and countries that are anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders (except Bill Clinton), and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.


— Illinois Deputy Governor Leslie Munger’s salary listing removed from health fund – AP
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: An anti-Trump demonizes, denigrates, and condemns Trump.


— 3 found shot to death in St. Charles


— Local Democrats invited to ‘Join the Revolution’ – Dennis Moran  (DIERSEN: Democrats run Chicago.  Democrats run Cook County.  Democrats run Illinois.  Ever-increasingly, those Democrats hint/imply/argue/shout that they will use their tremendous clout to first drive out of Chicago, out of Cook County, and out of Illinois all those individuals, organizations, and companies that support Trump and then all those that are Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.  What do Trump, Pence, Bost, Davis, Hultgren, Kinzinger, LaHood, Roskam, Shimkus, Rauner, Sanguinette, Radogno, Durkin, etc. have to say about that?)


— Congressman Darin LaHood ‘skeptical’ of new health plan


— Kinzinger backs GOP health bill – David Giuliani


— OUTSTANDING: Sheriff Clarke wants to imprison elected officials for protecting (ILLEGAL) immigrants – Raina Johnson


— Downers Grove candidates raise some eyebrows – Glenn Minnis


— Pat Brady says Trump deserves a chance


— Amid sea of red, Illinois sings right-to-work blues – Glenn Minnis


— Rauner administration pushes back hard on Munger pay story


— Millennials ‘schooled’ on adulthood  (DIERSEN: What do you say to individuals, to organizations, to companies, to governments, and to countries that do everything that they can to promote LGBTQ activity, that is, to destroy the traditional family?)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Janice Crouse of Concerned Women for America suspects the breakdown of the family structure has put Millennials at a disadvantage when it comes to learning adult skills they might have learned from their parents. “Most of these young people who are not functioning very well have not had parents,” she tells OneNewsNow. “There’s no father in the home, and the mother is trying to survive, having to work and do the work of two people and be a parent and a homemaker at the same time.” Subjects taught at “adulting” school include money management, time management, personal relationships, and even how to make a meal, according to Crouse recalls when schools taught students skills they would need in adulthood, but she says that is now lacking in education.)
— ABC’s Huge Gay Propaganda Flop
— Rather than regulate panhandlers, give them a job  (DIERSEN: But what about bad jobs?  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that all the job that I had were bad.  Would they say that it would be cruel and unusual punishment to require panhandlers to take the jobs that I did doing yard work, delivering newspapers, washing dishes, cleaning golf shoes, chipping slag, pumping gasoline, delivering mail, working on an automobile assemble line, working as a security guard, selling tires, automotive services, and major appliances, collecting delinquent taxes, and auditing federal agencies? 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.)


— Trump upsets another special interest group: Porn Addicts – Monica Showalter (DIERSEN: Who promotes pornography in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, and in Illinois?)


— DeVos meets with gay and transgender activists. Now pro-family groups want equal time – Peter LaBarbera  (DIERSEN: What would your critics/opponents say that you are an activist for?  My critics/opponents would say that I am an activist for the Republican Party platform, the Illinois Republican Party platform, the Milton Township Republican Central Committee resolution against video gambling, Trump, Protestants, conservatives, Republicans, Americans, Whites, males, older people, rich people, gun owners, German Americans, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.  My critics/opponents would stress the GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails that I have been sending out since 2000.)


— Trump Needs to Fire Thousands of Deep State Government Employees NOW! – Warner Todd Huston  (DIERSEN: While pay, benefits, and advancement opportunities are terrible in the government sector, they are even worse in the private sector.  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. Many millions have not and will not seek a job with the federal government a) because the pay and benefits are terrible, b) because the advancement opportunities are terrible, c) because they lack required education, work experience, professional certifications, and/or professional licenses, d) because they cannot pass an employment examination, e) because they cannot pass a background investigation, f) because they cannot pass a physical examination, g) because they cannot take the demonization, denigration, and condemnation that comes with being a federal employee or federal retiree, and/or h) because they are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran and they know that the federal government discriminates against its employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)


— Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Received Over $500K in Taxpayer-Funded Gov’t Grants – Joe Schoffstall


— DIERSEN HEADLINE: In a front page top of fold editorial unethically made to look like a news article, anti-Trumps treasonously glorify and praise a) those who come to America illegally, b) those who stay in America illegally, and c) those who bring others to America illegally.
— How Healthy Are You? G.O.P. Bill Would Help Employers Find Out – REED ABELSON  (DIERSEN: Many, if not most of my Democrat coworkers and subordinates in the federal government hinted/implied/argued/shouted that they had serious health problems.  Many of them used all their sick days as fast as they earned them. They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I had good health a) because I am White, b) because I am male, c) because my parents were filthy rich, d) because I avoided the draft, and e) because my wife and I gave up trying to have children, because we did not adopt, and because we did not become foster parents.)
— Wealthy Would Get Billions in Tax Cuts Under Obamacare Repeal Plan – JESSE DRUCKER  (DIERSEN: Anti-Trumps viciously demonize, viciously denigrate, and viciously condemn Republicans as being wealthy. Should it be a hate crime to say that someone is wealthy if their income is less than $200,000 a year? Just kidding, but not completely.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Two of the biggest tax cuts in Republican proposals to repeal the Affordable Care Act would deliver roughly $157 billion over the coming decade to those with incomes of $1 million or more, according to a congressional analysis. The assessment was made by the Joint Committee on Taxation, a nonpartisan panel that provides research on tax issues. It is not unusual for tax cuts to benefit mostly the wealthiest, but still save some money for a majority of Americans. But the benefits of these reductions would be aimed squarely at the top. The provisions would repeal two tax increases on high earners enacted in 2010 to help pay for the Affordable Care Act: an increase in capital gains taxes and other investment-related income, and a surcharge on Medicare taxes. People making $200,000 to $999,999 a year would also get sizable tax cuts. In total, the two provisions would cut taxes by about $274 billion during the coming decade, virtually all of it for people making at least $200,000, according to a separate assessment by the committee.)
— Are You Middle Class Enough to Deserve a Health Care Tax Break? – RON LIEBER
— What to Do if You Have Medical Debt – ANN CARRNS


— Applying For Financial Aid Just Got Harder. Blame the IRS – Kim Clark  (DIERSEN: Have you ever applied for financial aid?  I have not.  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used that to demonize me, to denigrate me, and to condemn me as being filthy rich.)
