— Why the paucity of men on campus is a problem and the beginnings of how to respond – Clarence Page (COMMENT: Earning college degrees, professional certifications, and professional licenses takes lots of time and effort. I know that because I earned four college degrees, six professional certifications, and a professional license. As employers give more and more and more preference to females, that is, as employers discriminate more and more and more against males, more and more and more males are discouraged from earning college degrees, professional certifications, and licenses. But for me, it was the opposite — it motivated me to earn them. I should write a book about the tremendous preference that my federal employers (GAO 1980-1997, IRS 1971-1980, and Post Office 1966-1969) gave my female superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates. All my female coworkers who my superiors promoted over me were Democrats who a) had less job-related work experience than I had, b) had less job-related education than I had, c) had no or fewer professional certifications than I had, and/or d) had no professional license like I had. I earned a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 (NIU-management) and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27 (Loyola-business), 31 (DePaul-accounting), and 48 (IIT-finance). I earned job-related professional certifications when I was 30 (CPA), 32 (Certified Internal Auditor), 41 (Certified Fraud Examiner), 45 (Certified Government Financial Manager), 47 (Certified Financial Services Auditor), and 48 (Forensic Accountant). I earned a job-related professional license (CPA) when I was 32.)

CENTER SQUARE ILLINOIS
— Illinois Republicans criticize Chicago mayor’s rhetoric over border crisis – Andrew Hensel
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Johnson on Tuesday criticized Republicans in regards to the border and suggested that the “right wing” was dishing out payback. “It is abysmal, and it’s an affront for everything that is good about this country, for the extremism in this country to use people as political tools to settle political scores for something that happened 400 years ago,” Johnson said. Johnson continued by questioning the sanctity of the party. “That’s what this particular party has been about,” Johnson said. “This is the same Republican right-wing extremism that stormed the Capitol. It’s the same right-wing extremism that refuses to accept the results of the Civil War. It’s raggedy, it’s disrespectful,” Johnson said. “It’s disrespectful, its mean spirited, it’s an unclean spirit.” Illinois Republicans responded to Johnson’s words, with some suggesting a history lesson for the mayor. “His statements are not even grounded in reality. I would recommend a history lesson for the mayor of Chicago, good grief,” state Rep. Adam Niemerg, R-Dieterich, told The Center Square. “To say Republicans don’t accept the results of the Civil War, I believe Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.” State Rep. Martin McLaughlin, R-Barrington Hills, fired back at Johnson. “The Republican Party was founded to end government Bureaucracy and to end slavery. Brandon Johnson and J.B. Pritzker are both obviously not students of history and are hoping many of their followers never get off Tik-Tok to discover accurate historical information,” McLaughlin said in a statement. “Independents, moderate Democrats, and Republicans are equally appalled at their recent statements.” Last month, Pritzker said supporting non-citizen arrivals has nothing to do with sanctuary status and the state would remain open. “Sanctuary status has to do with undocumented immigrants who are here,” Pritzker said. “Not people who are asylum seekers who are in a whole different category.” According to U.S. Rep. Nick Langworthy, R-New York, Democratic leadership and the inaction of President Joe Biden in regard to the border is what led to this influx of people and the use of taxpayer dollars to cover the costs. “This is just one small glimpse at a completely avoidable humanitarian disaster brought not by big bad Republicans in the House but by an administration that refuses to enforce our immigration laws and has flung the door wide open at our southern border,” Langworthy said. Johnson said the Republican backlash comes from targeted hate. “This is nothing new,” Johnson said. “Everyone knows that the right-wing extremism in this country has targeted Democratically run cities, and quite frankly, they have been quite intentional about going after Democratically ran cities that are led by people of color.” Illinois state Rep. Brad Halbrook, R-Shelbyville, said Johnson should not be taken seriously. “Mayor Johnson is a clown. He is not a serious person, and he does not deserve a response to his inane babbling,” Halbrook said in a statement. “He was elected thanks to the massive financial backing of the very public sector union leadership that has made Chicago’s finances a complete disaster. If Mayor Johnson is the answer, it must have been an extremely stupid question.” Last week, Chicago saw 25 more buses of migrants arrive. New York is seeing more than 2,500 arrivals a week.)
— Some Illinois law enforcement say enforcing gun ban violations not a priority – Greg Bishop (COMMENT: Anticipate/expect that Pritzker will force law enforcement to go after Republicans who share Trump’s demographics: conservative, White, male, older, gun-owner, non-veteran, non-poor, married, Protestant, German American, and/or ancestors who have been in America for a long time.)
