— Phillips hopes to work on education funding, structural reform – JARAD JARMON  (DIERSEN: What did you hope to work on?  GAO audits IRS.  After working for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels (currently $77,899-$88,286), I transferred to GAO in 1980 when I was 30 years old, and I not only hoped, but I asked to be assigned to audits of IRS so that I could use my knowledge of IRS.  But my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in keeping me off audits of IRS except 1986-1988, that is, for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO 1980-1997.  They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, a minority, a female, younger, or a veteran.)

— Trump campaign table on campus walkway is about all one triggered college student can stomach – Dave Urbanski
http://www.theblaze.com/news/2016/10/31/trump-campaign-table-on-campus-walkway-is-about-all-that-one-triggered-college-student-can-stomach/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Trouble didn’t take long to find University of Pittsburgh students who set up a campaign table for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on a campus walkway last week. It started harmlessly enough, depending on your definition, when passers-by yelled things such as, “F*** the white male patriarchy!” at those manning the table across from Hillman Library, the Pitt Maverick reported. Another “student came up to us and made a claim about how Trump wants to get rid of ‘his people,’” sophomore Kirk Breiner added to the Maverick. Then things escalated. A man declaring the table supported a “racist” candidate approached Breiner and another student volunteer Matt Kerlin, grabbed a stack of Trump door-hangers and nearly started a fight, the paper said. Later two students came over to the table, and one swept all the Trump literature to the sidewalk while the other flipped the table upside-down: The culprit then scurried away: “And we’re the violent ones,” one person, presumably a Trump supporter, was heard sarcastically noting on a video of the incident. Sophomore Steven Evanovich shot the clip and contacted campus police, who are investigating, the paper said. “It’s a shame that different opinions are met with such hostility at institutions of higher learning,” Evanovich told the Maverick. “Calling Trump’s rhetoric ‘hate speech’ actually reinforces and encourages the notion that violence against conservative or dissenting students is justified, and my own campus shouldn’t be a place where my friends or I are fearful for having opposing opinions.”)

http://triblive.com/opinion/editorials/11371626-74/federal-veterans-hiring
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: The lip service that the Obama administration pays to veterans about their health care — given excessive waits at Veteran Affairs facilities and suicide hotline delays — extends to hiring them for federal jobs. By law, disabled veterans and those with active-duty service are supposed to get preference in federal hiring. But a government report shows that’s not always the case, specifically when political appointees are considered for plum jobs. “There is a clear bias against veterans,” Darin Selnick, a retired Air Force captain and former Veterans Affairs official, tells The Daily Signal. “They think veterans should start at the bottom like everyone else.” Of course, experience and qualifications are factored for federal job applicants; the law is supposed to prevent political favoritism. But in hiring a quarter of President Obama’s political appointees, federal agencies didn’t follow policies to avoid favoritism, according to the Government Accountability Office. The GAO report sampled 30 federal agencies from January 2010 to October 2015. Never mind proposed changes to hiring policies that would limit veterans’ job preference to a single use. For vets who have secured civilian government jobs, that would eliminate any preference consideration when they apply for higher positions. Our country owes its veterans a debt for their service. Playing fast and loose when it comes to federal job hiring is an intolerable disservice that deserves no place in any administration.)
