What do you say to those who falsely state that they are religious, conservative, and/or Republican and who read my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails? Of course, they fail/refuse to come to my defense.

— What Reparations for Slavery Might Look Like in 2019 The idea of economic amends for past injustices and persistent disparities is getting renewed attention. Here are some formulas for achieving the aim. – Patricia Cohen (DIERSEN: Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, and Inclusion are reparations.

— Charging Rent When Your Adult Kid Moves Home Many parents don’t charge their boomerang children rent, but some experts say that’s a mistake – Beth DeCarbo (DIERSEN: After you earned your bachelor’s degree, did you live with your parents? My father died suddenly in 1969 when he was 47 and I was 21. My mother had never attended high school and she had never worked outside of our home. After I earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in August of 1970, I applied for and eventually got a financial hardship draft deferment to help support my mother and brother. I lived with my mother and brother in our Crete home and helped pay their bills until September of 1972 when I bought a new town home in University Park. I helped pay their bills with money that I earned a) working for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights full-time 1970-1971 and part-time 1971-1972 and b) working IRS in Chicago during 1971 and then in Harvey.)
— The ‘Underpaid Teachers’ Myth – Jason Richwine and Andrew G. Biggs (DIERSEN: According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, the federal government grossly overpaid me. In my defense, first, none of my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would have taken the jobs that I held because the pay was too low. Second, most, if not virtually all of them lack education, work experience, professional certifications, etc. required for the jobs. And third, 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.)

What will be your purpose be the next 20 years?
