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....

    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...

    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...

    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...

    IMPEACH NOW, ASK QUESTIONS LATER

    When times are bad, it always seems that bad people win.  When times are good, bad people always win.  When bad people win, the rest of us almost always lose.  Of late, bad people are succeeding at an alarming rate, most often with an am...

    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...
