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.

It's beyond talking points, beyond spin, beyond Fox News, and beyond fake news.  The thing-which-will-soon-become-president is a Twitter addict, and he refuses to seek help for his habit because he prefers to "communicate directly" to his millions of Twitter followers, i.e. lie to them directly.

Example:  He's upset that recounts may occur in a couple states, and he's embarrassed that Hillary Clinton received 2 million more popular votes than he did.  (Nothing bugs him more than "losing.")  So he tweeted out that of course he would have had way more popular votes than her if not for "millions of people who voted illegally," and he claimed that California, Virginia and New Hampshire all had "serious voter fraud."

There is not a shred of truth to his assertions.  None.  And his followers simply don't care.

It has come to this:  Our next president is the most brazen disseminator of  lies and disinformation we've ever known.  With his phone in his tiny little hands, he simply makes shit up to make himself feel better and tweets out his falsehoods to Idiot Nation, who lap it up.

He is beyond the Drudge Report, Breitbart.com and InfoWars.  He is his own Joseph Goebbels.

Get ready for four years of Trumpaganda.
