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.

Trump's KKK Kabinet -- Kooks, Klowns and Kommissars

To:  Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) and Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH)
Subj.:  Cabinet Confirmation Hearings

Betsy DeVos is utterly ignorant of education law and thinks guns in schools is an OK idea, in case of "potential grizzlies."  Are you kidding me?  Just say no.

Like DeVos, virtually all of Trump's cabinet picks are obscenely unqualified and strongly opposed to the purpose of the agency they would lead.  It's like hogs to the trough.  Tom Price for HHS, Ben Carson for HUD, Scott Pruitt for EPA, Andy Puzder for Labor -- they're all just ideological hacks temperamentally unsuited to the task at hand.

Want more?  The pick to lead the DOJ, Jeff Sessions, is an anti-immigrant racist devoted to voter suppression.  The Secretary of State nominee, Rex Tillerson, is in league with Russian oil oligarchs.  Rick Perry, the choice for Energy, wants to eliminate that very department!

I could go on and on with more absurdities, but I won't.  As your constituent, I urge you to resist the rush job and vote to deny confirmation to all of Trump's unqualified and unsuitable cabinet picks.  We must do better.
