This is not really my photo, but that of Geronimo, a Bedonkohe Apache leader of the Chiricahua Apache, who led his people's defense of their homeland against the military might of the United States.  He died in US military custody in 1879, far from his Southwest American homeland.  On his deathbed he is reported to have said: "I should have never surrendered. I should have fought until I was the last man alive."

 

HARD LEFT TURN is my best effort to keep on fighting for a better human condition on the planet we share.  I encourage others to use this platform to contribute to this cause.

    BUNKERED DOWN

    Attorney General Barr announced today that President Trump has been moved to the official White House bunker.  The move was necessitated by Trump's concerns about a lawless "autonomous zone" in Washington.  Jared Kushner has been tasked with locating this zone, determining its proximity to the White House and personally eliminating the threat.  Kushner's family has been moved to a secret country club in New Jersey until the mission is completed.

    CONTENT, NOT CULTURE, SEPARATES AMERICANS

    It has finally come to pass in America that armed bands of federal government thugs in camouflage gear are taking over parts of selected US cities to serve the interests of the country’s fearful “leader” and autocrat-in-chief....

    POLICING IN SEPARATE WORLDS

    Frankly, with all the bad actors in blue uniforms on the public stage in America at the moment, this old white guy would think twice about calling the police.  Which warrior would show up and how prepared would that warrior really be to addre...

    RETURN TO "NORMAL" IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH

    This is a time in which an invisible virus is stripping us naked, leaving many shivering in the dark and wondering how our society could have ignored so much about so many for so long.  I feel a bit like the proverbial canary in the...

    MARCHING TO THE BEAT OF A MINDLESS DRUM

    It has finally happened.  Trump is all in on saving the world from the Coronavirus pandemic, not just America, but the whole world.  Just so there is no confusion, Trump sees himself as the savior.  And the annual resurrection-fes...

    A NATION CALLED ITS GOVERNMENT AND NO ONE ANSWERED

    I have just finished a couple of weeks on the road in Texas during which time the Coronavirus pandemic blew up across the American landscape.  The best sign that something serious was happening while I was on the road w...

    BERNIE IS CONNECTING WITH US

    In politics, as in life, there is a major distinction between “I” and “we.”  And because “you” can be both singular and plural, the gulf between “I” and “we” is often glossed over without a mention.  However, it is time that America took sto...

    TESTING AMERICA’S NATIONAL CHARACTER

    I hope that Americans who want to believe in the promise of their nation have paid attention to the presidential impeachment trial.  I hope that those in the international community still clinging to the hope that America will finall...
