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.

Where Do We Go From Here?

What a week for the Abominable Showman.

Donnie Destructo is a one-man wrecking crew, single-handedly destroying NATO and our Western alliances, and then ignoring all U.S. intelligence by publicly expressing more belief in Vladimir Putin than in our own American agencies.  It was incredible, borderline treason.

What can we take away from Trump's European spree of damage and debasemant? 

  • American world leadership is over, at least for the time being.  Our would-be allies are gobsmacked by the unhinged words and deeds of our Cassino Mussolini.  He's squandered our global good will.  For now, America is an untrustworthy, counter-productive "ally."
  • Republicans are on the spot.  Will they go totally tribal, super-partisan, and close ranks in defense of the indefensible Dolt 45?  Or will they stand up to him and speak out?  Will any Swamp Administration officials locate their spines and resign in protest?  Or would it be better for those few (if any) of good conscience to remain in the fold to fight against the craziness of Dolt 45?  Time for the GOP to choose.
  • After watching Trump's weak and pathetic press joint conference, his fawning deference to a thug dictator, I believe Putin has a hell of a lot more "kompromat" on him than a simple pee tape. 
Where do we go from here?  Trump is a dangerously inept fraud.  He's gotta go ASAP.  Voting him out would be most satisfying.  We may not be able to wait that long.
