DAILY HERALD
— New paid leave policy may be smartest perk for families yet – Jena McGregor  (DIERSEN: Do/did you have dependents?  Government is nasty.  Politics is nasty.  Democrats are nasty.  All of my Democrat GAO superiors had dependents. They talked and acted like they were under tremendous pressure to give preference to their employees who had dependents, that is, to discriminate against their older non-veteran non-Democrat White male employees like me who did not have dependents.  They used the fact that my wife had a good job, that my wife and I gave up trying to have children, that we did not adopt, and that we did not become foster parents to demonize us, to denigrate us, and to condemn us as being selfish rich DINKs (dual income, no kids).)

— What keeps Illinois Democrats awake at night? – RICH MILLER
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20160918/NEWS02/160919857/what-keeps-illinois-democrats-awake-at-night
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Republicans have been saying behind the scenes that they have put four Democratic state Senators “on the bubble”—Tom Cullerton in DuPage County, Melinda Bush in Lake County, Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant in Will County and Gary Forby in deep southern Illinois. Understandably, Senate President John Cullerton does not agree. “If it wasn’t for Donald Trump maybe four would be on the bubble,” Cullerton told me the other day. Cullerton claimed that the one-two punch of Trump and Gov. Bruce Rauner was hurting Republicans in contested districts everywhere. “Downstate, Trump’s popular,” he admitted, “But Rauner’s not.” In Sen. Forby’s heavily targeted district, Cullerton said, “Rauner’s hated down there.”)

Haverluck  (DIERSEN: In 1997, when I was 49 years old and had worked for GAO for almost 18 years, because I was an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged GAO with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, because I had a GS-13 Step 10 (currently $120,427/year) job and a preferred office that GAO wanted to and did give one of my younger minority subordinates, my Democrat GAO superiors threatened to figuratively, if not literally, demote me if I did not take their early retirement “offer.”)
