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....

    FACING THE PAST WITH EYES WIDE OPEN

    There seemed to be a lot more bright stars in the sky in recent weeks, even over Washington, D.C.  Then suddenly, as national “leaders” slept wrapped in a bubble of delusion while disease was taking its ghastly toll, a black man in Mi...

    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...

    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...

    PERSPECTIVE FROM AFAR

    Imagine a place where people seem to enjoy meeting in cafes, bars, and restaurants to talk with each other, connecting with other human beings to enjoy the moment.  Imagine casual eye contact like it used to be.  Imagine Spain.  I recently got back...

    CAN AMERICA BEGIN TO FIND ITS WAY?

    Here comes the cavalry, maybe.  A US House of Representatives controlled by the Democratic Party is empowered to start the ball rolling on addressing America’s real needs and to change the dynamic of a government now in full retreat fr...

    COLLECTIVE COMA OVERWHELMS COLLECTIVE CONSCIENCE

    I happen to like to listen to country music, Christian preaching, evangelical problem-solving, and right-wing radio.  So, I had a lot to listen to on my recent solo car and camping journey through West Virginia, Kentucky,...

    PLANNING FOR A PROGRESSIVE BLUE STATE FUTURE

    I have been thinking a lot lately about the state of the states in America.  For now, the nation is stuck with a Constitution that created a federation of states with a central federal government of limited powers.  While thi...

    A NATION AWASH IN A SEA OF IGNORANCE

    The word “deplorable” got its own place in political lore when Hillary Clinton decided to create a “basket of deplorables” chock full of people who were buying so much of what Trump was selling in the 2016 presidential election.*  No...
