— After 25 years, Naperville’s Jim Healy says he won’t seek another term in next election for DuPage County Board – ALICIA FABBRE
— Ms. Monopoly’s ‘woke’ rules are bad for girls, devalue women – RACHEL GRESZLER (DIERSEN: While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, my superiors were always under tremendous pressure from Democrat politicians to give tremendous preference to their female employees, and especially to their female employees who were Democrat, minority, and/or younger. Of course, that meant discriminating against their employees who were male, Republican, White, and/or older. Ever-increasingly, the officers of the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican party, Republican Party, etc. are under tremendous pressure to give tremendous preference to females, and especially to those who are minority, and/or younger. Of course, that means discriminating against those who were male, White, and/or older, that is, discriminating against the base of the Republican Party.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I have three girls and three boys. Some of them have recently gotten into Monopoly, the classic board game. But my kids won’t be playing Hasbro’s new version, Ms. Monopoly, which gives women 20% more than men when they pass go. . .But I do not see how a game that gives women a head start supports or encourages either women or men. Instead, it just embeds inequity and incites resentment. If my children played this game, I’m sure my girls would be thrilled — at first — over the advantages it offers. No doubt they’d gloat as they passed go and pocketed 20% more than their brothers. And I’m equally sure these things would upset my boys, leading them to retaliate with verbal jabs at their sisters. If one of the girls won, the boys would give her no credit, claiming it was only because the rules of the game were unfair. And if one of the boys won. Wow. I can hear the disparagements now, about how girls must be really lame if they can’t win even with a huge advantage.)

— How about some reparations for Irish Americans? – JOHN DONALD O’SHEA, Moline, Retired Circuit Court Judge
(FROM THE ARTICLE: To escape starvation, Irish peasant emigrated to America. Coming from rural backgrounds, most lacked the necessary skills required by industrializing America. They had to take unskilled jobs, paving the streets and digging the canals, while the women were forced into menial jobs as maids and laundresses. And there was prejudice against the Irish. America was largely Protestant. The Irish were Catholics. Many Americans believed the Irish owed their allegiance to the Pope. Additionally, the Irish immigrants threatened to take jobs from American citizens. Fearing that they would also take political power, there was a backlash, which produced the Know-Nothing Party, whose very reason for being was anti-immigration xenophobia. “Help Wanted” signs were modified to add, “No Irish need apply!” Then came the Civil War. As Irishmen disembarked, they were met by Union military recruiters who offered them $300 to join the Union Army. And they did.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Peter Breen, lawyer for Daleiden and vice president and senior counsel with the Thomas More Society, which is defending Daleiden pro bono, had called the motion “outrageous.” “We’re going to fight it very, very hard. It’s an incredible violation of the First Amendment, of the people’s right to know, of the right to a public trial,” Breen told LifeSiteNews in a previous report. “Everything that Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation have been trying to do is to shut down anyone knowing about their scheme to sell fetal parts and organs for profit which involves babies born alive, manipulating abortion techniques without telling women that they’re doing that to them, terrible things that they’re doing for money and not for the best interests of the patients,” he said. “And of course, for us who are pro-life, they’re taking and treating these poor little children like they’re cattle to be chopped up and shipped out,” he said. “It’s disgusting and so we’re fighting very hard on that front to get word about it and we’re doing it in a way that’s legal and appropriate.”)
