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.

Reader Comments On The GOP/Ryan Healthcare Plan

Animal Farm and Thinning the Social Security Herd.  Thank you, faithful readers!

It's true, "Animal Farm" is here now::: "All Animals Are Equal / But Some Are More Equal Than Others." When it was time to send the horse Boxer to the hospital, you do know where he was really sent ?... When the van arrives to take Boxer to the hospital Benjamin reads its side and learns that Boxer is actually being taken to a knacker, or glue-boiler. Welcome to Trump Careless America!


It's more than meets the eye::: The secret G.O.P. plan to “save” Social Security:: “According to the C.B.O. report, the bill would make health insurance so unaffordable for many older Americans that they would simply leave the market and join the ranks of the uninsured.” It’s so simple you might miss it. No insurance for “Older Americans.” “Older Americans” simply die much sooner than they would if they had health coverage. Hence, millions fewer Americans getting Social Security benefits. This is to say the least a stroke of genius from P. Ryan.
