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.

    It always seems to work here in America, no matter how many times it shouldn’t work and no matter how many times the only real outcome is more dead bodies.  So, this time it was Trump’s turn.  Run up the flag, kick off an armed conflict...

    The year 2019 is ending.  Traditions abound to celebrate the coming of a new year, and this time around a new decade.  There seems to be some notion that celebrating the coming year will wash away all of the detritus of the year just...

    A RESOLUTE PATH TO A BETTER AMERICA

    Watching the exposure of the ugly underbelly of the American “dream” on full display in the impeachment hearings has been reaffirming for those of us in the body politic who have long thought that self-delusion, rather than freedom an...

    FINALLY, ENOUGH MAY BE ENOUGH

    With only twenty-four hours in a day and so many people out to get him, Trump is so busy trying to slay his foes that even his faux friends can’t keep up with the effort.  Never has this been more apparent than in the present Trump abuse of...

    AWASH IN A SEA OF HYPOCRISY

    Cradled in the midst of all that is wrong with Trump and his silent and venal Republican accomplices is more hypocrisy than one essay could ever capture.  But I am going try.  To hit the ground running, racism is a good place to start....

    A CORRUPT ENTERPRISE WON THE DAY

    When a government fails to meaningfully respond to the carnage in its streets, every citizen should question the competence and corruption of those charged with the governmental responsibility to act, as well as the legitimacy of the gov...

    DEMOCRATS REMAIN ADRIFT WITHOUT A VISION OR A LEADER

    Trying to make sense of the US presidential election that is still well over a year away is a challenging task.  So much makes no sense at all.  The easiest example of this is trying to figure out why under-educated a...

    A DYING IMMIGRANT CHILD TORCHES AMERICA

    It is surely no secret that a significant portion of the American electorate hopes that the national nightmare of the Trump administration will begin to end in November 2020.  Beyond hoping, many have been moved to activism and ac...
