FEDSMITH
— Executive Order Seeks to Increase Federal Employee Donations to CFC – Ralph R. Smith  (DIERSEN: Should the time that I spend putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out be counted as a “monetary donation” to those who read the emails?  I spend 10+ hours each and every day putting the emails together and sending them out.  At $100 an hour, that is $1,000+ each and every day, $7,000+ each and every week, $30,000+ each and every month, $365,000 each and every year, and $3,650,000 each and every decade.)
http://www.fedsmith.com/2016/10/16/executive-order-seeks-to-increase-federal-employee-donations-to-cfc/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Contributions to the CFC have been going down each year since 2009. A new executive order seeks to reverse this by allowing retired federal employees to donate as well as allowing agencies to count federal employees’ time spent working for charity as a monetary donation.)

Author: David Diersen

The opinions that I express in GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails are based on experience that I have gained doing many things since 1948. I base my opinions on what I learned a) working for the federal government for almost 30 years -- Post Office 1966-1969, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997, serving on the Executive Committee of the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter 1983-1996, and being a union member while I worked for the Post Office and IRS; b) earning an MBA from Loyola in 1976, a masters degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, and a masters degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997; c) passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979 and passing the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981; c) serving as a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999, the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000, the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois Chairman 2005-2012, a member of the 2008 Illinois Republican Party (IRP) Platform and Resolutions Committee, a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member 2003-2011, the Milton Township Republican Central Committee webmaster 2008-2010 and 2000-2004, an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member 2003-2007, and an American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member 2001-2004; d) attending the 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, and 2016 IRP State Conventions as a delegate; e) being the subject of a nasty 4-page article in the February 1978 issue of Money Magazine; f) pursing litigation including Diersen v. GAO and Diersen v. Chicago Car Exchange; g) being married since 1978; h) living in Crete 1948-1972, in University Park 1972-1976, in Chicago 1976-1978, and in DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton since 1978; and i) being baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran.
