REAL CLEAR POLITICS
— The Perfidy of Illinois’ Public Payrolls – Steve Cortes (DIERSEN: I worked part-time for the Park Forest Post Office 1966-1969.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I grew up in Park Forest, Ill., a working-class suburb of Chicago. In my youth, Park Forest was pleasantly middle-class — a solid community of well-kept lawns, strong churches, and active sports. Unfortunately for my hometown, times have been tough over the years, reflected by a jobless rate about twice the national one and a poverty rate 43 percent higher than the state of Illinois average. As a consequence, Park Forest has lost almost a third of its peak population of 30,000 since the 1970s. But like many such struggling communities, one class of people has found a way to prosper: public employees. Recently, Fox affiliate Channel 32 and Open the Books detailed the exorbitant pay package for part-time interim school Superintendent Joyce Carmine. She retired in 2017 making $398,000 annually, the highest-paid superintendent in Illinois, in a community where the median household income is $44,000. She will receive, courtesy of taxpayers, a pension of just under $300,000 for the rest of her life. Adding insult to injury, the school district hired this retiree back as a consultant at the rate of $1,200 per day for a total of 100 days, bringing her pay this year to $419,000 total for part-time work. Given the modest $75,000 median home price in Park Forest, her salary equates to 5.5 home purchases…per year.)

ANSWER: Those who are anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders, anti-GM, anti-Ford, anti-Chrysler, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

They glorify and praise foreign countries and their citizens, and especially citizens of foreign countries a) who are in America illegally and b) who want to get into America illegally.

— Why Are We So Uninformed? We Don’t Read What We Share – Peter DeWitt (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who ascribe bad judgment and/or evil motive to everything that I do, and especially to the decisions that I make a) to include or to not include links to articles in GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails and b) to comment on articles linked in GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. They blame me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails for all of their problems, your problems, my problems, and everyone’s problems. They blame me for all defeats that Republican candidates have suffered in Illinois since 2000, and especially for defeats suffered by Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct. What arguments will they make to blame me for the defeats suffered by candidates on the November 6, 2018 ballot in my precinct?)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Many people share articles that they actually don’t read, which contributes to a great deal of chaos on their social-media pages. In fact, this Forbes Magazine article cites research that shows that 59% of us share articles we never read. . .The reality seems to be that people don’t read the articles they share because they care less about the content of the article and more about what sharing the article does for them.)
