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.

    DO NOT RESUSITATE

    US President Trump announced today as a special Easter treat that "do not resusitate" orders for all hospitalized Christians, especially Evangelicals, should be executed with haste to ensure that Easter resurrection is fully available as a benefit for the faithful.  Trump noted that it will have the added benefit of relieving hospital overcrowding in these difficult times.

    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...

    FINALLY, ENOUGH MAY BE ENOUGH

    With only twenty-four hours in a day and so many people out to get him, Trump is so busy trying to slay his foes that even his faux friends can’t keep up with the effort.  Never has this been more apparent than in the present Trump abuse of...
