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.

    A NATION IN DARKNESS CONFRONTS ITSELF

    As America’s 2020 Independence Day fades from memory, many things are clearer.  Americans love to go to beaches and bars as their petri dishes of choice, masks are a better idea than they were before Independence Day, there will nev...

    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...

    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...

    COLLECTIVE CONSCIENCE FEEDS THE SOUL

    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...

    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...
