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.

    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...

    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...

    THIS NONSENSE HAS GOT TO STOP

    With the Attorney General’s attaboy channeling of Robert Mueller’s investigation results bestowed upon Trump, it is increasingly likely that it falls upon the American electorate to halt the daily governmental carnage in our midst.  The US...

    A CRITIQUE OF  A “FREE” PRESS IN A “FREE” SOCIETY

    It sure seems like there is no bottom to the hourly breathless “breaking news.”  There is so much “breaking news” that the attempt to convey urgency has lost any impact.  We surely need a new go-to banner for those criti...

    A PARTY THAT MOST OF US MISSED

    The bastions of conscience that are America’s corporate giants can hardly wait to spend the fruits of their latest income tsunami resulting from Trump’s corporate windfall tax scheme.  As we speak, Amazon is on the prowl for a second corpo...

    OBAMA MODELS A NEW ROLE

    It sure is nice to see former President Obama get back into the public arena.  As has been widely reported, he and his wife took some time after the inauguration of his successor to wallow in the embrace of a $65 million book deal and hang out wi...

    EXPOSING AMERICA’S INSTITUTIONAL BREAKDOWN

    America owes a debt of gratitude to Donald Trump.  However, this debt will only matter if Trump’s rise in the Republican Party, Trump’s message, and the bile of his ardent supporters becomes a catalyst for long-overdue institut...

    WHEN ANGER WINS, WE ALL LOSE

    America is slowly coming to the climax of its painfully long presidential election process.  As usual, there is much talk about choices and little talk about the process for deciding which choices to make.  With the present election cycle cu...
