What sins did your parents, your grandparents, and the rest or your ancestors commit?  Democrats believe that Republicans should be punished for the sins that their ancestors committed. Democrats believe that the longer that a Republican’s ancestors have been in America, a) the more that they benefited from their ancestors’ discrimination against minorities and against females, b) the more that they should pay the price of Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion, and c) the more reparations that they should pay.  What does Trump have to say about that?)

To vote for Clinton is to promote Islam.  Further, ever-increasingly, those who voted for Clinton have made it very clear that they are going to get rid of those like me who voted for Trump.)

— Inside Trump’s freewheeling vetting operation  The transition team’s approach is in marked contrast to that of past presidential transitions. – NANCY COOK and ANDREW RESTUCCIA  (DIERSEN: What do you know about the vetting process used by your Republican township/ward party organization, by your Republican county party organization, and by the Illinois Republican Party?)
http://www.politico.com/story/2016/11/donald-trump-transition-vetting-231786
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Nunes added that he isn’t aware of any lengthy questionnaire that Pompeo filled out, as is standard with major nominees. . . .Trump’s freewheeling approach is in marked contrast with that of past presidential transition teams, who have subjected nominees to weeks — and sometimes months — of vetting that includes deep-dives into their finances, taxes, previous employment and personal relationships. Barack Obama’s transition operation began contacting potential nominees months before he won the presidency — in the summer of 2008. After the election, the team tapped dozens of lawyers — many working on a volunteer basis — to help vet nominees and process their paperwork, according to former members of the team. . .Few of D.C.’s top political lawyers, typically hired to shepherd appointees through the process, have seen a copy of the Trump transition team’s vetting questionnaire, an internal document that past transition teams have used to uncover potentially embarrassing details of nominees’ past. Obama’s vetting document included 63 detailed questions about financial interests, past writings, professional experience and even social media posts.)

LAS VEGAS JOURNAL REVIEW
— Reforming the bureaucracy – Editorial  (DIERSEN: It seems that the only thing that those who support Trump and those who oppose Trump agree on is their hatred of federal employees like I was for almost 18 years, and by extension, their hatred of federal retirees like I have ben for more than 19 years. What is your attitude toward federal employees and toward federal retirees?  On what do you base your attitude?)
http://www.reviewjournal.com/opinion/editorials/editorial-reforming-the-bureaucracy
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: Incompetent or slothful bureaucrats may be among the biggest losers in a Donald Trump presidency.  Newsmax reports that the president-elect hopes to make it a top priority to remake the bureaucracy by looking at a hiring freeze and “addressing automatic raises [and] the inability to fire workers who perform poorly.” The Free Beacon noted last year that it takes almost six months to fire a federal employee — assuming the agency follows the proper protocol. A 2015 report from the General Accounting Office revealed that many supervisors opt to tolerate poor performance rather than to undertake a long, drawn-out process and risk litigation. The office found that the federal government dismissed only 3,489 employees for substandard work in 2013, just 0.18 percent of all personnel.)
