I lived with my parents and brother at 1286 Wood Street in Crete 1954-1969 and with my mother and brother there 1969-1972 after my father died in 1969.  According to Zillow (
http://www.zillow.com/homes/1286-Wood-ST-Crete-IL-60417_rb/), it is worth $119,437. My bother continues the live there. My grandfather on my father’s side had the home built in 1926 on land that his grandfather bought in 1864.  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always viciously demonized me, viciously denigrated me, and viciously condemned me as having been born with a silver spoon in my mouth and as having always been privileged.)

— CNN’s Deplorable Smear of Pence – Brent Bozell and Tim Graham  (DIERSEN: If pressed like Pence was, I wonder how many of my deplorable critics/opponents, their deplorable operatives, and their deplorable dupes would publicly call me deplorable.)
http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/tim-graham/2016/09/13/bozell-graham-column-cnns-deplorable-smear-pence
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The CNN screen graphic at 6 pm on September 12 was blunt: “PENCE REFUSES TO CALL DAVID DUKE ‘DEPLORABLE.’” Mike Pence had granted Wolf Blitzer a 30-minute interview, and what he received in return was a reckless leftist smear.  Let’s be clear about this interview. Blitzer offered 39 hostile questions or interjections about Trump’s tax returns, medical records, charities, and offensive remarks before asking a single question about policy. In the middle of this contentious exchange, Blitzer arrived at Hillary Clinton’s gaffe calling Trump backers a “basket of deplorables.” Blitzer obnoxiously underlined that some Trump backers were truly deplorable: “David Duke, for example, some other white nationalists, who would fit into that category of deplorables. Right?”  Pence protested, “I’m not really sure why the media keeps dropping David Duke’s name. Donald Trump has denounced David Duke repeatedly. We don’t want his support, and we don’t want the support of people who think like him.” Blitzer pushed back: “Would you call him a deplorable? You would call him that?” Pence replied: “I’m not in the name-calling business, Wolf.” CNN ignored that denouncement of Duke and his backers. It was spiked in favor of a cheap National Enquirer-style “Pence Won’t Deplore Duke” headline. It’s the kind of gotcha journalism that has the public disgusted with the press.)

BOSTON HERALD
— Some Quick, easy steps to tell if you’re a deplorable – Howie Carr
http://www.bostonherald.com/news/columnists/howie_carr/2016/09/carr_some_quick_easy_steps_to_tell_if_you_re_a_deplorable
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In case you’ve been wondering which side you’re on, you may be a deplorable if you stand for the National Anthem. Or if you know all the words to the Pledge of Allegiance, especially, “under God.” Or if when you go to Market Basket, you tend to buy generic products, because you’re using your own money, not an EBT card. You may be a deplorable if you just got your car inspected. If you’re deployable, you’re definitely deplorable. If you wake before noon, if you call Islamic terrorists Islamic terrorists, if you don’t have an Obamaphone and you don’t believe that global warming is “settled science” — can you say deplorable? You may be deplorable if your passport, driver’s license and credit cards are all in the same name. Saying Merry Christmas — Deplorable with a capital D! You may be a deplorable if you wouldn’t mind showing some ID at the local precinct before you vote. You are most assuredly a deplorable if you have more than one job. You may be a deplorable if you’ve never used Western Union to wire welfare cash south of the border. You may be a deplorable if all of your children have the same last name — and it’s your last name. Or if while watching the second Monday night NFL game you were less irritated by the streaker than you were by all the fawning coverage of Colin Kaepernick on the pre-game show. You may be a deplorable if you resent training your H1-B replacement. Or the fact that the Earned Income Tax Credit is NOT earned. Nothing says deplorable like the National Rifle Association. If you liked your doctor and wanted to keep your doctor, if you wear pants rather than pajamas when you leave the house, if you were passed over for the job even though you got a 95 on the civil-service test — you know what you are. You may be a deplorable if you don’t think you should have to press one for English. If you lost your security clearance and your job for mishandling classified information, you are deplorable. You may be a deplorable if you identify as a member of the gender in which you were born. Or if you drained your 401(k) or took out a second mortgage on your house to pay for your kid’s tuition at UMass while the illegal alien down the hall goes on the arm. Or if you believe that good fences make good neighbors. You’re most definitely a deplorable if you have an American flag flying in your front yard. Or if you’ve never windsurfed with John Kerry on Nantucket, or stood in line with Sen. Warren at your local “cheese shop.” You are a deplorable if you believe All Lives Matter. If you’ve never needed a “safe space,” or heeded a “trigger warning” — deplorable. If you’ve gone to the www.howiecarrshow.com store and ordered a “Proud to be Deplorable” T-shirt — yes, you know very well what you are.)
