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 MIRAGE OF PRINCIPLE

    In today’s America, we seem to come face-to-face with some politician’s horse’s ass moment on an almost daily basis.  But Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona moved into horse’s ass hall of fame territory after initially trying to sound like a man of prin...

    DR. FORD MADE ME CRY TOO

    Sorting out the ramifications of what has become known as the Me Too movement has become daily fare for those who make a living dissecting America’s political, social, and cultural developments.  Unlike some movements that never catch on – remem...

     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...

    AMERICA CONFRONTS GUNS, GODS, AND BORDERS

    ATTACKING AMERICA’S GUN CULTURE

     

    Terrorism driven by religious extremism in America is alive and well, and it’s not coming from atheists.  It is coming from armed hardcore Christian jihadists seeking to end abortions and undermine a woman’s right to choose.  It is comin...

    THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY

     

    It is a good time to be a white, middle-class Christian.  The US Supreme Court can’t wait to find faith based rights and freedoms under every rock, so you are good there and getting better.  Those pesky women who think that access to con...
