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 Nazis Are Coming! The Nazis Are Coming!

The mask was lifted and it was disturbingly dangerous.

Steve Bannon (the de facto president) spoke yesterday at CPAC.  He vowed the Trump adminstration will estblish "a new political order" which will "deconstruct" the federal government as we know it.  He acknowledged that the new Cabinet heads were chosen to help do just -- destroy the agencies they lead.  He spoke of a policy of "economic nationalism" (authoritarian newspeak for build a wall around everything).  He said Trump's war against the media is "going to get worse.  Every day is going to be a fight."
Today, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer banned the New York Times, the BBC and CNN from attending a press briefing.

OK, that does it!  It is indeed gonna be a fight.  Game on, and let's rumble, you assholes! 

Reince Priebus asked the FBI to publicly refute stories from the NY Times and CNN about the Trump campaign's Russian contacts and connections, financial and other.  The FBI rejected the reject, then leaked the story to the media.  (Says something about the FBI's assessment of new administration.)

A.G. Jefferson Beauregard Sessions has reversed federal LGBT protections and instituted the National Potty Police.  In other policy switches, his DOJ is promoting the idea of for-profit private prisons, and they're cracking down on recereational marijuana use.

Homeland Security/ICE has declared all Muslims, Mexicans and brown people to be terrorists and bad hombres, and is busily engaged in deporting any of them with an overdue library book.

My headline is wrong.  The Nazis aren't coming.  They're already here.
