— Illinois Walmart employee’s sign-off message after 10 years on the job goes viral. Video of Gail Lewis’ farewell has been seen more than 20 million times since it was uploaded to TikTok on Nov. 16 – Matt Stefanski (COMMENT: While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, my superiors, superiors, coworkers, and subordinates who left or retired early were overwhelmingly Republican, White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or had ancestors who had been in America for a long time. Overwhelmingly, those who stayed were Democrat, minority, female, younger, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or had ancestors who had not been in America for a long time. Overwhelmingly, discrimination was why those who left or retired early and getting preference was why those who stayed. The aforesaid is patronage, up-or-out, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)

— No pay for elected school board members shuts out underrepresented communities. Those who pursue elected office do so to serve the public and, in the case of many Latinos, to be a voice for underrepresented communities — at a considerable personal cost, the leader of a nonprofit writes. (COMMENT: I continue to serve as a voice for grossly underrepresented conservatives, that is, as a voice for grossly underrepresented platform Republicans as a) a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999 and b) the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000. I served as that voice as the following until RINOs got rid of me: a) the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2021, b) the chairman of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois 2005-2012, c) a member of the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee 2003-2011, d) the webmaster for the Milton Township Republican Organization 2008-2010 and 2000-2004, e) a member of the Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee 2003-2007, and f) a member of the Association of American Political Consultants Midwest Chapter 2001-2004. I should write a book about the aforesaid RINOs who got rid of me.)

Keck (COMMEMT: What offices will be on the March 19, 2024 Republican primary ballot in your precinct? Which potential candidates are circulating nominating petitions for those offices? In my opinion, the leaders of Republican county, ward, and township organizations in Illinois should have long since provided their Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains that information in flyers for them to hand-carry to the Republican residences in their precinct. Failing that, I nevertheless hand-carried my precinct letter to the 370 registered Republican voters in the 228 residences in my new DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 59 in Wheaton in four batches that announced a) my candidacy for Precinct Committeeman, b) that the Republican primary would be March 19, 2024, c) that I would support those candidates who won the primary, d) etc.)

— Ignore Trump? Democrats Now Want Him Plastered All Over the News. The former president has been relatively quiet, out of the headlines and off mainstream social media. Democrats are hoping that more attention on him can help turn around President Biden’s fortunes. – Reid J. Epstein

In my defense, I stress that all my ancestors have always lived in northeast Illinois and never discriminated against anyone.

The Democrats who ran GAO in 1980, IRS in 1971, Firestone Stores in 1970, and the Post Office in 1966 hired me because they could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, veteran, or younger person who would take the job.)
