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.

    STEP BEYOND THE DUNG AND DEMAND SOMETHING BETTER

    It seems like “implosion” should be the word of the day or week.  I think that the end of the Trump disaster is at hand.  However, I just want it to come slowly enough and painfully enough that the Republican Party in Ame...

    KIDS SUFFER WHILE THE LIAR IN CHIEF PERFORMS FOR THE CAMERAS

    It is hard to watch a president of the United States butcher his native language whenever he opens his mouth.  Even when trying to articulate a simplistic vision for America and an avenue to get there, little...

    KIDS CONFRONT AMERICA’S GUN CULTURE

    The day before 800,000 or so of their constituents showed up in Washington, DC for the recent March for Our Lives, the US Congress recessed yet again and left town.  At the same time, Trump fled to his golf course in Florida, not far...

    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...

    MEANWHILE, DADDY TAKES AMERICA DOWN WITH HIM

    I have always been a big fan of Ivanka Trump.  It is hard to figure out how Donald Trump, an intellectually challenged and relatively ugly creep, could produce the divine Ivanka.  But then you ask, how could someone so divine...

    HUMANE OUTCOMES DEFINE A NATION’S WORTH

    Changing times can be hard times, particularly for those without much of a moral compass to guide them.  It seems that after millennia of harassment and abuse, women have chosen 2017 to find their voice.  Likewise, after decades o...

    GIVING OF ONESELF IS THE BEST RESISTANCE

    The Holiday Season is upon us again.  Time for another holly, jolly Christmas, or whatever other celebratory shrine to consumption rings your bell.  As a pagan who annually shares space with a Christmas tree, I can assure you tha...

     AMERICA WALLOWS IN A MORAL SWAMP

    There is so much that needs to be said about today’s American trajectory, but only a limited amount of space to say it. So, I am going to start off with a concept that seems so obvious but to which much of America has seemed so obliviou...

    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...

    DEMOCRATS OFFER FREE ICE CREAM

    I guess that “New Deal” and “Let’s Make a Deal” were already taken, so America’s Democratic Party leaders settled on “A Better Deal.”*  As a floundering opposition party seeking to become an opposition party with a meaningful agenda, “a be...
