— Stats show carjackers target men over women, standard over luxury cars – Sarah Schulte

— COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, Democrats illegally encourage citizens of foreign countries to illegally come to America illegally and to illegally stay in America illegally.

— DuPage Regional Office of Education starts new work-based learning program for high school students – Luann Doman
(COMMENT: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. Did you work while you were in high school, and if so, how did that impact the rest of your life? During my junior and seniors years and the summer in between at Crete-Monee High School 1964-1966, I washed dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights. During the summer of 1966, I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline. While the money that I earned washing dishes enabled me to buy a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint (a poor man’s GTO) in May of 1966 to commute to/from classes at UIC from my parents’ home in Crete, the stigma of my having had such “bad jobs” was significant. I delivered mail for the Park Forest Post Office 1966-1969 while I attended UIC 1966-1968 and NIU in 1969. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted a) that they would never have stooped to take those jobs and b) that my having taken those jobs proves that I am a disgusting loser.)

— Battle between billionaires a sight worth seeing – Jim Dey

— Edgar Fellows: Followers or leaders? – JIM NOWLAN

— Illinois professor maps how to limit misinformation on Facebook – Emily Hays
(COMMENT: According to my critics/opponents, all government and political news and commentary is misinformation except for the government and political news and commentary that they put out or bless. They want the following a) to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) to stop everyone from reading those newsletters: a) the leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization; b) the leaders of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, and Wheaton Park District; c) conservative leaders; d) religious leaders; and e) Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct, their political consultants, their major donors, their fundraisers, their pollsters, their campaign managers, their campaign staff members, and their campaign volunteers. I should write a book about what the aforesaid have done to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and to stop everyone from reading those newsletters.)

(COMMENT: My critics/opponents reject the equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) plank in the Republican Party platform. They promote patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on past and leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization. I would focus on past and present leaders of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, and Wheaton Park District. I would focus on Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct, their political consultants, their major donors, their fundraisers, their pollsters, their campaign managers, their campaign staff members, and their campaign volunteers.)

— New York City to phase out gifted and talented public school programs that critics call racist – Jean Lee and Corky Siemaszko

— Stop making excuses for Joe Biden — he’s the one to blame for his far-left agenda – Deroy Murdock
— Gifted and Talented programs helped me and my family — de Blasio is taking away hope – Michael Benjamin
(COMMENT: When you were in grade school and in high school, were you viewed as being “college material?” I was not. Neither of my outstanding parents attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. I just barely made it into the upper 20% of my high school class. My ACT was only 24. I washed dishes for the minimum wage during my junior and senior years and the summer in between.)

— COMMENT: Democrats are extremely divisive. Ever-increasingly, if you are the following, they want you to put your demographics ahead of everything else: minority, female, younger, LGBTQer, veteran, liberal, moderate, Democrat, Trump-hater, non-married, non-Christian, non-Protestant, non-Italian American, non-German American, if your ancestors have not been in America for a long time, if you are in America illegally, if you have financial problems, if you have health problems, etc.

— LGBTQ+ Advocates from Across the Country Meet With and Urge Federal Lawmakers to Pass Equality Act – Henry Berg-Brousseau
(COMMENT: I should write a book about leaders who paint themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican, but who promote LGBTQ. I would focus on those leaders who have taken the strongest adverse actions against me.)

— Microchip Shortage Is Also Impacting Current GM Vehicle Owners – FRANCISCO CRUZ

— Ignorance Is Bliss and Shooting the Messenger
(COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, government and political news and commentary is depressing for Republicans in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton. Therefore, ever-increasingly, articles linked in my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters are depressing for Republicans in the aforesaid. Far too many of my critics/opponents in the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) talk and/or act like they a) believe that “ignorance is bliss” and b) believe in “shooting the messenger.” They do not want me to include links in the newsletters to articles that they do not like. Ever-increasingly, they blame me and blame my newsletters for the problems that the IRP, DCRCC, and MTRO have. Ever-increasing, they blame me and blame my newsletters for losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct suffer. Ever-increasingly, they blame me and blame my newsletters for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems.)
