To hire, promote, and/or retain one person is to not hire, promote, and/or retain another person. To hire, promote, and/or retain those who are citizens of foreign countries, Democrat, of one minority, female, younger, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or have ancestors who have not been in America for a long time is to not hire, promote, and/or retain those who are citizens of America, Republican, of another minority, White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time. All those who my Democrat superiors promoted over me were Democrats who were most if not virtually all of the following: Black, Hispanic, Asian, female, younger, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or had ancestors who have not been in America for a long time. Further, all of them had less job-related work experience than I had, less job-related education than I had, fewer job-related professional certifications than I had or no certifications, and/or no job-related professional license like the one I had. The aforesaid is called patronage, up-or-out, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)

I have owned cars since I was 16 in 1964, and I own seven now and a SUV. Because I could not find a job in Crete in 1964, I bought a 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air in Monee in 1964 with money that I had earned doing yard work and delivering newspapers so that could take a job washing dishes for the minimum wage in Chicago Heights. After that, I used cars that I bought to get to/from jobs a) cleaning golf shoes in Flossmoor, chipping slag and pumping gasoline in South Chicago Heights, delivering mail in Park Forest, working on an automobile assembly line in Belvidere, selling tires, automotive services, and major appliances, and pumping gasoline again in Chicago Heights, collecting delinquent taxes in the south suburbs, and auditing federal agencies in the Chicago area and b) classes at UIC, NIU, Loyola, DePaul, Roosevelt, and IIT. While I own eight vehicles, I drive them very little because I spend 10+ hours each and every day putting GOPUSA Illinois newsletters together and sending them out.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “We should look at the vehicular miles program where people are actually clocked on the number of miles that they traveled,” LaHood told the Associated Press in a Feb. 19, 2009 interview. “What I see this administration doing is this — thinking outside the box on how we fund our infrastructure in America,” he said. Even the Obama administration, however, did not fully embrace what LaHood was suggesting. . .The Obama administration did not pursue a vehicle-miles-traveled tax, but Secretary LaHood did advance a plan to reduce American driving. On June 16, 2009, the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs held a hearing on “Greener Communities, Greater Opportunities: New Ideas For Sustainable Development and Economic Growth.” LaHood testified at this hearing on his vision for “more livable communities” and “transit-oriented development.” . . . “Transit-oriented, mixed-use development has the potential to provide efficient and convenient options for employers, developers, young professionals and families in many large and small cities around the United States,” LaHood said. “Transit-oriented development,” he said, “also has the potential to contribute significantly to the revitalization of downtown districts, foster workable neighborhoods, and offer an alternative to urban and suburban sprawl and automobile focused commuting.” On April 14, 2009, the Heritage Foundation published a report by Ronald Utt, which this writer cited in his 2010 book “Control Freaks.” Utt’s report was entitled “President Obama’s New Plan to Decide Where Americans Live and How They Travel.” “To save Americans from these alleged higher living costs,” Utt wrote, “the Smart Growth and New Urbanist movements want Americans to move into higher-density developments — such as townhouses and high-rise apartment buildings — which, the anti-suburbanists contend, can be better served by public transportation (hence the commitment to ‘transportation choice,’ a process whereby commuters are bribed or coerced into an inconvenient mode of transportation that most would not choose on their own) — thereby freeing the hapless American people from relying on their automobiles.”)
