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.

Stop Me When Any Of This Makes Sense

Some of the latest nonsense from The Donald:

Hillary is corrupt?  Puh-leeze!  Among a long list of similar offenses, Trump the "Debt King" owes his ass to Russia and China, refuses to show his tax returns, has six corporate bankruptcies, routinely stiffs his contractors, and built Trump Tower with illegal Polish immigrant workers he paid with vodka and threatened to deport if they made any trouble.  Etc., etc.  And you're worried about the Clinton Foundation?  Get over it.

Hillary is a bigot?  Puh-leeze!  Trump has surrounded himself with Breitbart, Fox News, David Duke, Roger Ailes, birthers, truthers, misogynists, and the alt-right wacko nation.  He settled a multi-million dollar lawsuit for racially discriminatory housing practices.  Who's a bigot?

The system is rigged.  The polls, the media, the election itself.  All of it.  Because if it wasn't rigged, Trump would be winning.  Yuugely!  Believe me.  

Trump is "moderating" his hard-line anti-immigrant stance.  Yes, he'll still build the wall, and he'll still have deportation squads, and every Mexican will still be sent back, but the "good ones" will be let back in.  It'll be "humane."  That sound you hear is Latino America rushing to vote against Trump. 

Trumpenstein is "reaching out" to black voters, because their lousy black lives don't matter and really, what do they have to lose?  Donnie's latest outreach involved bringing Brexit's nationalist, racist leader Nigel Farage to speak on race/class issues.  To an all-white audience.  In Jackson, Mississippi.  LMFAO!  Black support for Trump remains at 1%.

No word on how the Great Trumpkin plans to salvage the women's vote.  Ha-ha!

Not to get cocky, but the die is pretty much cast.  No matter what he says or does, Trump can't get much more support than he already has.  Which is not enough to win.

It is, however, enough to keep him in the Kardashian-style, faux-celebrity spotlight for the rest of his goofy, selfish, needy life.  Which is what he really wants.  Ratings!

Good gawd!
