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.

    AFTER THE TONE, PLEASE LEAVE A MESSAGE – “IMPEACH HIM”

    The Washington Nationals won the World Series, suggesting that anything is possible.  More importantly, the Nationals unlikely path to victory showed that if you have a cohesive team that pushes through the rough sp...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    COLLECTIVE CONFRONTATION WITH AMERICA’S TROUBLED PAST

    It has happened again, but will it amount to anything this time?  An unprincipled and ignorant narcissist laid bare the depth of the social and racial divide in America that elected a good old 20th century racist as...

    “FIRE ANTS” URGENTLY REVISITED*

    As a general proposition, I refrain from giving Republicans the benefit of my advice, but Trump is so pathetically ignorant that I feel like I need to step in to help.  My country needs me, particularly with John McCain largely on the dis...
