If you happen to live in or around Joliet Township in Illinois, located a bit to the southwest of Chicago, and you happen to be looking for work, there’s some good news coming your way. The Township is looking to hire a new clerk. If you’re interested, the job will entail many of the tasks you’d likely expect, including answering phones, filing and making copies. There is one special requirement, however. You have to be a Democrat to apply. (CBS Chicago) A help-wanted ad in the suburbs raised eyebrows this week – with its suggestion that only Democrats need apply. Such a restriction would be illegal.

They pretty much screen for political ideology, which explains why most government employees are so insufferable. Now, they're just being open about it. Sometimes I wonder why they feel so safely emboldened to just let it rip while we have a republican president in office. It scares me.

As the article states, access to voting records is available. The only thing wrong with the ad is that they mistakenly stated the obvious. Also, there are plenty of Republicans in Illinois (and California and New York), we suffer more than you know. The urban areas are D, the rest of the state is largely R.

This is one step beyond affirmative action, one step too far. Maybe the employer wrote this under "notes to self" and the advertising dept picked it up by accident? No, it's Illinois and this is a Chicago suburb.

My late Catholic grandmother, finding herself widowed with a small son to raise during the Depression, was asked during an interview for a civil service job what her religion was (this was sometime during the early 1930's). She knew what the interviewer wanted to hear and she replied "Episcopalian". She got the job. I guess the more things change the more they stay the same.

This is probably illegal. Hope somebody is taking the Town of Joliet to court over this. The only kind of job where there could possibly be a party requirement is if it was for the party itself. That's not the case here.

Back in the 1930's and 40's the world had this little party in Europe called the National Socialists. Today in America we have a group calling themselves Democratic Socialists. Since I have always called a Spade a Spade and not an Agricultural Cultivation tool I tell it as it is. I have studied the two and they're is absolutely no difference between our Democrat Socialists party and Germany's National Socialist party. America's Democrats are N A Z I's and Germany's National Socialists are N A Z I's. Face Book doesn't doesn't like it when a Conservative tells is like it is, but the truth needs to be told. We are in great danger of losing our Democratic Republic. The Demonrat party's handling of the so called "impeachment" is a great example. Make your voice heard and make your vote count.

Amid reports that he might skip out on the presidential debates altogether next year, President Trump issued a series of social media posts Monday blasting the Commission on Presidential Debates and suggesting that some major changes might be coming in how the debates are handled in 2020. The New York Times reported last week that Trump has been “discussing with his advisers the possibility of sitting out the general election debates in 2020” because “he does not trust the Commission on Presidential Debates, the nonprofit entity that sponsors the debates.”

Several cadets and shipmen were accused of white supremacy after flashing the OK symbol in the background of broadcasts covering the annual rivalry football game between the two military branches. The symbol, which is formed by making a circle with the forefinger and the thumb, has been considered by the Southern Poverty Law Center to be a white supremacist symbol, although it had long been considered the symbol for OK.

Americans who oppose large-scale immigration are “snakes and vermin,” says one of the most moderate columnists at the New York Times. The glib dismissal of ordinary Americans came from columnist Tom Edsall who has been warning progressives since 2016 they should listen to the concerns of ordinary Americans. But Edsall has apparently cracked under the stress of defending his fellow Americans from his radically “woke” elite peers, and he claimed on December 11: [Donald] Trump’s genius in 2016 lay in his willingness — indeed, his eagerness — to openly and aggressively unleash the forces of racial and ethnic hostility that Republican elites

By the time Harvey Milk's supervisors in the US Navy officially questioned him about his sexuality, he had graduated from officer school and served as a diving officer on a submarine rescue ship during the Korean War. Then his superiors caught him in a park that was popular with gay men, his nephew said. The sighting raised questions about Milk's sexual orientation in an era when the military banned gay, lesbian and bisexual service members. Milk was forced to resign. In a move that signalled an about-face on the issue of gay rights, the Navy began to construct the USNS Harvey Milk

Clearly Greta Thunberg is being exploited by her cynical puppetmasters, but equally clearly she’s a tiresome, bizarre Marxist scold whose exploitation of the hapless dummies who buy into the climate change hoax is part of what is an increasingly violent plot to undermine capitalism and freedom.

The comedians Bud Abbott and Lou Costello did a routine about baseball that is a cult favorite. In it, they kept batting back and forth the question, “Who’s on First?” “What” was on second and “I Don’t Know” was on third. “I Don’t Give a Darn” was shortstop. “Who’s On First” was a humorous and outlandish exchange between the two comics. As the routine went, so politics goes today. President Trump labels any Republican who questions his erratic and narcissistic style as a RINO (Republican In Name Only).
