Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

The Birds

Yesterday, the lovely Mrs. Gammons and I were enjoying a little beach time.  I had dozed off to the sound of the surf when I was jolted awake by the raucous cawing and cackling of twenty or thirty excited seagulls swooping and circling more or less right above us.  This flock of seagulls had suddenly materialized thanks to a silver-haired granny with a loaf of bread who was standing ten feet to our left, lobbing bits of bread into the air as the birds went nuts and the poop rained down.  (Granny was apparently not a fan of DuMaurier or Hitchcock.)
No, not this Flock of Seagulls

More like this flock of seagulls

We gave granny the stink-eye and she moved ten feet to our right, which improved things not a bit.  Indeed, granny was then joined in her bird-feeding circus by a cute little girl and her mother.  Despite a wide and uncrowded expanse of beach, the trio was determined to carry on right beside us until every last slice was gone.  (How did we get so lucky?)  We held our tongues and hoped to not be shat upon, and in a couple more minutes, the show was over -- the gulls and granny had, thankfully, moved on.

We could have and maybe should have asked granny to please take her Wonder Bread act further down the beach and away from us.  We could have told her that seagulls don't really need human help, much less a loaf of bleached white flour.  We could have pointed out that from Maine to the Keys, almost all shore birds are protected species and feeding them "people food", while amusing, is also prohibited and punishable by fine.

Woulda, coulda, shoulda.  We said nothing.  It's not easy to go enviro-Garp on a silver-haired granny and a cute little girl.

But the brief episode did make me want to share an oldie-but-goody from Tom Lehrer, satirical piano man from decades gone by.  This was the sort of stuff I was brought up on, which may explain a lot of things:

Non-PC Easter Tips

From the Conan O'Brien Show, it's prop-master Bill Tull's Easter Tips:

Mission Accomplished! (Ten Years Ago.) Now Can We Fix Our State Constitution?

Back in 2004, Republicans were worried about getting that imbecile George W. Bush reelected.  So GOP operative Karl "Turd Blossom" Rove got the bright idea to put gay marriage bans on state ballots across the country.  He figured this would draw gobs of socially-challenged conservative bigots to the polls, and he knew he'd need every one of 'em to keep Dubya in the White House.  He figured correctly.  All the prejudiced prigs turned out to vote against married gay terrorists, and Bush was narrowly reelected.

Mission accomplished.  (Worked out great, didn't it.)
"This is the number of people
who still believe my bullshit."

The GOP of ten years ago didn't have any real animus toward gays and lesbians, but they were happy to exploit those who did to keep their man in office.  But now the wheel of progress has turned, DOMA is toast, there is wide-spread acceptance of equal rights for all, and all the anti-gay laws still on the books look pretty stupid -- discriminatory and unconstitutional.

In 2004, Ohio went full-monty on the anti-gay thing.  We didn't just pass a law banning gay marriage, we wrote it into our state constitution.

Now we have four same-sex couples, living in Ohio but legally married elsewhere, who've sued the state to have their marriages legally recognized, and have both parents names listed on the birth certificates of their children.   District Court Judge Timothy Black found in their favor.

Well, sort of.
We welcome 8 of you for now.
The rest of you, check back later.
The judge agreed to delay state-wide implementation of his order, at the urging of Ohio A.G. Mike DeWine.  DeWine's job is to defend the state constitution, even when it's indefensible.  He argued that judge's ruling could prompt thousands of Ohio same-sex couples to rush to get married in other states, and this might be "premature" and could cause "confusion."  (Yeah, those sound like terrible problems, Mike.)  Both DeWine and Black agreed, however, to give full legal recognition to four couples who brought suit.  So I guess eight really is enough.  Ten?  Now you've gone too far.  Confusing!

Some right-tards say that Black's decision is an example of an "activist judge legislating from the bench."  That's bullshit.  Sometimes a law is unfair, mean, serves no useful purpose, and must come to an end.  This is one of those cases.  Conservatives can appeal all they like, but in this case, Ohio's constitution is unconstitutional, and sooner or later it must be and will be fixed.

Wouldn't we have saved ourselves a whole bunch of time, trouble and money if we'd told Karl Rove to piss off and never gone down this stupid path in the first place?

Income Tax Day

Buster is no Pollyanna.  Life is not perfectly fair, but we should not begrudge the wealthy their wealth for that reason alone.  Yet . . . regarding the broad and general concept of "income inequality" (which these days translates to "gross income disparity"), a couple semi-related thoughts on income tax day.

First, a video from Robert Reich, discussing the fact that the very rich (Hello, Mitt!) typically pay income taxes at a much lower net rate than those pulling down "ordinary" incomes.  Familiar but important territory.    

Then, a flash in the old brain pan from Buster his damn self.  Much has been made these days of the extreme difference between top executive pay and rank-and-file wages:  Today's average CEO (just average, mind you) earns 300 to 400 times more than the average worker.  In 1950, the ratio was 20 to 1.  Since the 1950's, that average CEO has experienced a 1000% increase in compensation.

So let's revisit those good old days of Pat Boone, Howdy Doody, and American exceptionalism.  Way back then, before Ronnie reduced federal income tax rates (and eliminated deductions) with the Tax Reform Act of 1986, we actually had a top income tax rate 90%.  That's right, 90-friggin' percent!

Just like today, there were deductions and credits and write-offs out the wazoo, so nobody ever really coughed up 90% of their entire income.  But at some point, for the ultra-rich, some small portion of your  income just might be taxed at 90%.  Under those conditions, what was the point of ever-and-ever-higher executive pay?  Who needed 400 times more money than the average Joe Bagadonuts if the IRS was gonna take back 90% of it anyway?

There was a minimum wage back then, sure.  But the tax policy of the time also operated as a sort of de facto maximum wage limitation.  This with the blessing of our well-known progressive socialist president of that era, Dwight Eisenhower.  All things considered, a more fair and equitable distribution of wealth than today's fuck-your-buddy free-for-all.

I don't like to pay taxes anymore than you do, and I may be way off base, but the conservative no-tax ideology is simple brainless bullshit.  Just sayin'.

And Paul Ryan wants to cut the top rate from 39.6% to 25%.  God bless America.  Gimme a break.

She Does Have Nice Hands

In the recent Sports Illustrated Baseball Issue, the point was made that Atlanta Braves closer/relief pitcher Craig Kimbrel is the best strikeout pitcher in baseball history.  He's whiffed an amazing 43.1% of the batters he's faced in his short career.  The further point was made that although strikeouts are most valuable with the tying or winning run on third and less than two outs, the Braves never use Kimbrel in those situations.  They use him for "guaranteed" saves.  In all of last season, Kimbrel inherited just three baserunners.

The piece went on to suggest that the Braves might want to skip a few saves-on-a-platter for Kimbrel, and bring him in a little earlier if/when his bat-missing skill could help extract them from a tight spot.

The (sadly) unattributed writer ended with a classic line:

"Keeping the greatest strikeout pitcher ever away from spots where strikeouts are essential is like using Kate Upton as a hand model."

Well, as you can see, she does have nice hands.

No Sense Of Humor

In 2015, Stephen Colbert will replace David Letterman on CBS's Late Show.  As much as I'll miss his half-hour spoof on Comedy Central, at the same time I can't wait to see what he'll do with the late-night talk show format.  He's a real comic talent.  Should be good!

The choice of Colbert for the CBS slot drew almost unanimous praise, with two notable exceptions.

By hiring Colbert, Rush Limbaugh said, "CBS has declared war on the heartland of America.  They hired a partisan as an assault on traditional American values."  (Did the "heartland" move?  I ask only because Limbaugh lives in a Palm Beach mansion.).

Bill O'Reilly is the incoherent blow-hard upon whom Colbert based his schtick, and poor Bill still doesn't get the joke.  He said, "Colbert is an ideological fanatic, a progressive mouthpiece who is deceiving and damaging America."

Limbaugh is a hateful tub of goo, and O'Reilly is just a simple idiot.  Colbert makes me laugh.  Limbaugh and O'Reilly make me sick.

Boehner: "GOP Isn't Racist, We Just Hate Obama And Holder . . . Benghazi!!!"

On the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, what have Republicans learned about race and American diversity?  Not much.

Two years ago,  a kangaroo court House Oversight Committee found Attorney General Eric Holder "in contempt" over the "Fast and Furious" gun-walking program.  (It was Dubya's stupid program, Holder ended it, and Holder testified about it nine times.  Frustrated that they couldn't blame Obama for it, House R's found Holder in contempt instead.  Another symbolic vote that went nowhere.  Pure political B.S. theater.)

A couple days ago, Holder testified again to the Oversight Committee on a completely different topic.  On the Committee is Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, a racist Islamaphobic Tea-Bagger.  ( A Louie sampler:  He compared civil rights to rights for bugs and lizards, said Obama has been "complicit in helping people who want to destroy our country," and claimed that Obama has "stirred up more racial tension and violence than anyone since the 1960's.")

Gohmert saw fit to remind Holder that the Committee still held him in contempt, and Holder replied, in so many words, "The feeling is mutual, ass-wipe!  Don't go there with me!"  The next day, Holder said that President Obama and he have endured "unprecedented, unwarranted adversity" that goes far beyond policy disagreements.  Unspoken but understood:  it's personal and race-based.  Any semi-objective observer of the past 6 years would have to agree.

But not John Boehner.  Asked by a reporter if GOP criticism of the administration was motivated by race, Boehner answered, "There's no issue of race here," the quickly changed the subject by reaching into the Fox News fake-scandal grab bag and pulling out some familiar shiny objects.  The real issue, said the Orange Man, was getting the truth about the IRS, and Fast and Furious, and Benghazi.  And with that, Boehner walked off.  What?  No "botched healthcare website"?  No "war on Christmas"?  Why not go all the way with the red herring distractions?

What conservatives like Boehner don't seem to grasp is that white people don't get to decide what racism is, and merely declaring you're not a racist doesn't mean you aren't one.  The overwhelming majority of racists don't believe that they are; they can't recognize it in themselves, but others do.

Make no mistake, we're getting better in this country.  Racism is no longer the horrible, blatant, violent thing it once was, but neither has it vanished.  It will never go away entirely.  Sadly, nothing did more to expose our lingering vein of American racism than the election of our first black president.

So here's a note to John Boehner, Louie Gohmert, Joe Wilson, Justice Joseph Alioto, et al:

You say it's not a racial thing thing, but . . .  when your fellow conservatives say Obama and Holder are "the real racists"; when you believe that efforts to reduce discrimination are just as bad, if not worse, than actual discrimination itself; when you're openly contemptuous and disrespectful of the black president, his black A.G., his other black cabinet members and black diplomats in ways we've never seen before, it's going to be strongly perceived to be racism by the rest of us.  And you know what?  It is.

$400 Squirrel

Regular readers know that Buster has a hate-hate relationship with squirrels.  When they're not digging up my flowers or getting into my gutters or falling out of trees to land on my head, they're scurrying all over, chattering at me and giving me the little squirrel finger.  Bastards!

Now one of them has sunk to a new low.  This particular rat-with-a-bushy-tail had, unbeknownst to me, built a nest in my chimney.  Sitting in our family room last night, the lovely Mrs. Gammons and I noticed our cat was having a strange fixation with our fireplace.  We heard a noise, got a flashlight, and there behind the glass fireplace doors, sitting in the ashes, was the stupid squirrel who had obviously flunked Nest-Building 101.  It's nest had given way and the dumbass fell all the way down the flue.

So this morning the critter control service came out and removed the damn pest, and also removed $400 from by bank account in the process.  I did get a nice, new squirrel-proof chimney cap in the deal.  So that's good.  What will become of the squirrel, I do not know or care.

My t-shirt in the photo below speaks the truth.  At this very moment, I'm sure my local squirrels are in revenge-mode, planning their next insult against me.  I'll keep you posted.

Like Father, Like Sons

The more you learn, the worse it gets.

The Koch brothers are infamous for their wealth, their massive political contributions, and their to desire to make the world easier and more profitable for themselves.  They come by their arch-conservative philosophies honestly enough.

The tree, Fred C. Koch
After teaching Josef Stalin how to drill for Russian oil in the 1930's, their father, Fred C. Koch, returned to Wichita with a big wad of rubles and founded Koch Industries in 1940.  He prospered, which puts it mildly.

In 1958, Fred became a founding member of the John Birch Society, a far-right group of hysterical anti-government fear mongers and race-baiters.  The John Birch Society was the 1960's forerunner of the Tea Party, but even crazier.  They spread conspiracy theories, fought against union organizers, led witch-hunts for "subversives", and warned of impending armed Communist takeover.  (The JBS is still around today, and as lunatic-fringe as ever.)

In 1960, Fred self-published his own book, A Business Man Looks At Communism.  Fred wrote, "The colored man looms large in the Communist plan to take over America."  He claimed that welfare was a secret plot to attract blacks and other minorities to Communism and "get a vicious race war started."  (The guy sounds like Charles friggin' Manson!)

The nuts, sons Charles and David Koch
The boys Charles, David and William, who inherited their dad's fortune and political mind-set, are still worried about Communists, except now they use the code word collectivists.  Either you believe in the Koch's definition of "freedom" -- unregulated, unfettered, totally laissez faire, free-market, buyer-beware capitalism, or you're just a pussy, share-the-wealth collectivist.

Just this week, the Wall Street Journal published a wretchedly self-serving column written by Charles Koch, in which he whined that "collectivists" are ruining the world and just don't understand that the Koch way, the no-rules, self-correcting markets way, is fairness in action and the only way to be truly free.

The boys obviously share their daddy's sense of privilege and superiority:  They are the top dogs, and the rest of us are just a bunch of fire hydrants. 

GOP Health Care Plan

Who says the Republicans don't have an alternative to Obamacare?

50 Signs You're Watching Too Much Fox News

by Justin Rosario for Addicting Info.org

Talking to people who religiously watch Fox News is better than space travel.  You get to see what life is like on another planet without the risk of explosive decompression.  If you're a devotee of Fox News and insist that the rest of the world is crazy, this list is for you.  And please consider getting help.

You might be watching too much Fox News if . . . 

1.  You're outraged at how Obama has shredded the Constitution but can't name any rights you've lost since January 20, 2009.

2.  You think record-breaking cold weather in winter disproves global warming.

3.  You think record-breaking cold weather in winter disproves global warming, but record-breaking heat in the summer is just a fluke.

4.  You hate Obama for the almost 1700 American lives lost in Afghanistan on his watch, but have no idea how many died in Iraq before he took office.  (Hint: over 4000)

5.  You call Afghanistan "Obama's War", but ignore the entire first eight years of it.

6.  You think there's no way Chris Christie knew anything about the GW Bridge scandal, but you believe Obama clearly knew what a small IRS office in Cincinnati was up to.

7.  You think four Americans dying in Benghazi is "the worst tragedy since 9/11."

8.  You denounce Bill Clinton as an adulterer, but give a pass to David Vitter and Mark Sanford because they apologized.

9.  You're convinced Obama is a secret Muslim, yet you also go into a frenzy when someone mentions Rev. Jeremiah Wright,.

10.  You really do believe Obama is a secret Muslim terrorist who drinks beer, eats pork, has attended church for years (goddam Rev. Wright!), had his daughters baptized, had Osama bin Laden killed, and has had more terrorist leaders assassinated than every president before him combined.

11.  You know bin Laden was responsible for 9/11 because he ordered the attack, but you give Obama no credit for bin Laden's death because all he did was order the attack.

12.  You swear Obama is coming for your guns.

13.  You've been swearing Obama is coming for your guns since before he was elected.

14.  You swear that Obama has actually restricted your right to own guns, but you can't explain how.

15.  You use the words "Obama's Katrina" to denigrate supposed failures that have nothing to do with a bungled response to a natural disaster.

16.  You're certain Obama isn't a true Christian, but it made you mad that he had "too many" Christmas trees at the White House.  (No, seriously, that was a thing.)

17.  You believe all Muslims are terrorists and religious fanatics, but you think that protecting gay kids from bullies is some sort of insult to your religious beliefs.

18.  You constantly complain that the "liberal media" takes things out of context, but you're still deeply offended that Obama said, "You didn't build that."

19.  You think ACORN stole the 2008 election.  Maybe the 2012 election as well.

20.  You believe "voter fraud" is a real and serious problem, but can't explain how cutting back on early voting stops it.

21.  In 2009, you thought cutting the $1.4 trillion deficit was the most important thing in the world, but now in 2014 you couldn't care less about how much the deficit has been reduced.  (Hint: by half)

22.  You hate Obama for never having served a day in the military, but you voted for Mitt Romney.

23.  You think Obama is the laziest president ever for taking "so many" vacation days, but conveniently forget that it's less than a third of his predecessor.
23a. Never mind how many days he actually took, the president should never take a vacation in a time of crisis!
23b. Never mind that Dubya enjoyed vacation time during two wars and a recession -- Obama is loafing on taxpayer money!
23c.  Who cares that Dubya took more than three as much vacation?  It only counts when the black guy takes a vacation!

24.  You feel that Obama "embarassed" America by bowing to other heads of state, but you forgot about this:

Dubya and Prince Abdullah hold hands and kiss

25.  You believe Obama has ruined the economy, although the stock market continues to hit all-time highs.

26.  You think that the stock market hitting all-time highs doesn't mean the economy is improving, but you still believe in Trickle-Down Economics.

27.  On second thought, you say you don't really believe in trickle-down economic theory after all, but you still insist that increasing taxes on the rich will hurt the economy.

28.  You're outraged at Obama for not unilaterally launching a full-scale war on Iran (or Syria or Russia or N. Korea), but you call him a "warmonger" for joining an international coalition to stop the massacre in Libya.

29.  You think Obama is "dumb".

30.  You really think a Harvard graduate is "dumb".

31.  You really, seriously think a Harvard graduate and former president of the Harvard Law Review is "dumb".

32.  You think Obama "hates white people," which would include his own white mother and white grandparents who raised him to believe he could someday become the President of the United States of America.

33.  You believe Obama is a cunning criminal mastermind who has broken dozens of laws involving thousands of government workers, but no one can actually prove anything.

34.  You believe Obama is a total blithering idiot who has broken dozens of laws involving thousands of government workers, but no one can actually prove anything.

35.  You think climate change is a vast liberal conspiracy designed to destroy capitalism.

36.  You claim evolution is a hoax, but you still take your kids to get a yearly flu shot.

37.  You say science is just another form of religious faith, but you don't think twice about boarding an airplane.

38.  You think the private sector can and should totally replace all government investments, but you're outraged that Obama ended the space shuttle program.

39.  You think using a teleprompter means you're stupid.  But only if you happen to be the president.  It's OK for everyone else.

40.  You think the suggestion to drink an extra glass of water a day is tyranny.

41.  You think being asked to do community service is tyranny.

42.  You think being asked to help the poor get health insurance is tyranny.

43.  You think being asked to let women choose to use birth control is tyranny.

44.  You think being asked to respect religions other than your own is tyranny.

45.  You think being asked to respect the human rights of gays and lesbians is tyranny.

46.  You think being publicly shamed for your racism is tyranny.

47.  You think preventing criminals and the mentally ill from buying guns is tyranny.

48.  You think allowing everyone to vote is tyranny.

49.  You think Obama's exercise of his constitutional authority is tyranny.

50.  You grew up in America, and you think you actually understand what real tyranny is.

Unlimited $ = Unlimited Corruption

On the brink of oligarchy:  

The Roberts Court is determined to unwind campaign finance laws.

The Citizens United decision unleashed unlimited dark money campaign contributions via Super PACs and bogus "social welfare" 501 c-4 non-profits like the Kochs' Americans For Prosperity and Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS.

The recent McCutcheon decision raised the individual campaign donation limit from $123,000 per election cycle to $3,600,000.

Justice "Silent" Clarence Thomas has written (because he never speaks) in favor eliminating any and all campaign spending limits.

Progressives howl; Conservatives rejoice.

With a straight face, wealthy Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) pooh-poohed the idea that the super-rich have been given carte blanche to buy elections and control the game, saying "Not a lot of people contributed $123,000" per election.

No shit, Robbie.  But the point is those same few can now pony up $3.6 million a throw, and many of them will do just that.  That's 30 times more per election than before.  And the GOP would have us believe that this won't be a significant change, won't make any difference.  Really?

Ya gotta hand it to the Republicans.  They're a disciplined bunch:  when they tell a lie, they tell it in unison.

Interesting Garage Sale Item

Here in our subdivision, we're having a Neighborhood Garage Sale in about a month.  For now, we're collecting responses from our residents about who is participating and what items will be available.  I received the following in an email yesterday, and just about ruptured myself in convulsive laughter.

Our Goose Is Koched

Oops, they did it again.  The conservative bloc of the U.S. Supreme Court again found that money is speech and opened the cash spigot even a little more with its McCutcheon v. FEC decision.  Individuals may now contribute the maximum of $2600 to an unlimited number of candidates.  The prior limit of 9 candidates was ruled unconstitutional.

Citizens United v. FEC was the big crappy cake.  McCutcheon is the shitty icing.

Chief Justice Roberts wrote that his court's legal protection of unlimited campaign contributions is no different than 1st Amendment protections of flag burning or funeral protests or Nazi parades.  He said campaign contributions are just like a newspaper's editorial opinions and cannot be silenced or regulated.

Since most of the morons who burn flags or join Westboro Baptist or have swastika tattoos don't have two nickels to rub together, and since newspaper circulation is in free fall, the idea that these bits of free speech are "no different" than allowing the multi-billionaire Koch brothers to do whatever they fucking like is muddle-headed and dangerous.

My kind of free speech is this silly blog.  I sign petitions and contact my elected officials and donate $5 or $10 here and there when I can.  Charles Koch's kind of free speech buys businesses and politicians and media and magnifies, amplifies, exaggerates his message in a way the rest of us can't.  There's a world of difference.  No contest.

So I beg to differ with Roberts and the rest of that righty bunch on the bench.  They're just wrong.  Their ideological fervor blinds them -- they're compelled to side with those who already have the most power and influence and give them even more.  They're poor students of history.  They forget why campaign finance laws have been necessary throughout the years.  They ignore the fact that from the Gilded Age robber barons to the Watergate scandal, Big Money/Big Business has always tried to buy themselves a nice, warm lap-dog government.  But when it goes too far, America has always taken corrective legislative and regulatory action.  It's gone too far, again.

Although the Supremes' misguided McCutcheon decision applies equally to both parties, and there are big-money players on the D side, there are more on the R side.  Most of the benefit of this ruling will flow to the R's, and everyone knows it.  That's why Herr Reince Priebus is so damn happy about it.

This is a teachable moment.  It points out the critical importance of the Supreme Court and of who appoints who.  We can only hope for a chance to replace some of these far-right robes with a few reasonable, mainstream jurists.

Failing that, it will take constitutional amendments to formally erase the Citizens United and McCutcheon decisions, and institute complete and equal public funding -- and nothing but -- for future elections.

That'll be, to use the current phrase, a heavy lift.  Eat your spinach.
