As a nation, we are severed. We are no longer defined or justified by a perseverance toward a dignified united nation where the best of human qualities are sought after and celebrated. We have fallen away from communal grace. We now seek each to his own. The great American spirit is faltering and flaying. It’s being pushed underfoot. It will soon occupy the space being vacated by every vulgar spirit from history. It will be entombed where the worst of humanity is being resurrected. Our darkest demons from our past are being dusted off and welcomed back. They are being celebrated—instead of being cursed as perverse phoenixes. The deceitful notions which are taking hold in our nation need to be tossed back into the dank holes and dark minds from whence they came. To be visited no more. As a nation, we are better than this. We are better than Trump.

“Happy Thanksgiving”

John is an author, a blogger, and provocateur who founded HuntingForThompson.com in 2016. Between 2019 and 2020 he wrote and published Red, White, and the Blues: A Long and Hard Ride over Treacherous Terrain. John's forthcoming book, Hunting for Thompson: Daggers from a Desperate Patriot, is slated for an October 2021 release.

John is a James Copley Scholarship for Journalism recipient. He studied journalism, psychology, communications and the dramatic arts at City College, San Diego, California.

John has largely traveled through life as a single and childless rolling stone, collecting little moss. He has been employed in numerous industries: first as a KFC dishwasher, then a Red Lion busboy, followed by soda jerking for Dairy Queen. All of that occurred before Uncle Sam whispered in his ear and he donned the olive drab green as a soldier in the U.S. Army. After that non-Yankee Doodle Dandy duty was over, he attempted a career in entertainment, performing comedy and magic. When those opportunities disappeared, John reappeared in the transportation industry as a taxi and truck driver. He's been a barkeep, a hotel manager, a street performer, a professional student, a business manager, a dispatcher, an oil field professional, an IT/IS professional, and a self-imposed gig economy prisoner (aka worker); he's even been a procurer of substances.

John developed and maintains Hunting For Thompson.com, Red White and the Blues.com, and John R. Hall.com. All of this basically makes him an omnipotent . . . (in his own mind, which, as he says: "Is all that counts").
