LARRY BECK

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.

    GOING POSTAL

    Attorney General Barr announced today that President Trump has "gone postal." Trump went ballistic with fear that his own mail-in ballot won't get to Florida on-time.  To ensure on-time delivery, Trump has ordered VP Pence to personally get it there and ordered AG Barr to take over the US Postal Service.  Barr has ordered Dept of Homeland Security "freedom fighters" to surround all US postal facilities.  Jared Kushner is figuring out postal stuff to allow for an efficient and effective electoral process.

    ALTERNATE REALITY IS ALL THE RAGE IN ELECTION TIME AMERICA

    It should be obvious by now that “reality” has Americans very confused.  This is nothing new.  This happened when the word “reality” somehow became a synonym for fantasy, delusion, illusion, and fake.  I am...

    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...

    POLICING IN SEPARATE WORLDS

    Frankly, with all the bad actors in blue uniforms on the public stage in America at the moment, this old white guy would think twice about calling the police.  Which warrior would show up and how prepared would that warrior really be to addre...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    GIVE IT UP AND GET OUT OF THE WAY

    With the next US presidential election right around the corner, I feel compelled to make some predictions based on recent events.  Billionaires seem like a good place to start.  No billionaire is going to win in 2020 with or without dis...
