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.

    US APOLOGIZES 

    A repentant US President Trump apologized to the world today on the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks for now 18 years of indiscriminate killing of men, women, and children in an international effort to make the US feel better about itself.  Trump was quick to add that most of the killings were Obama's fault and that only he had the insight to understand the error of the nation's chosen path to redemption.

    FACTS FINALLY SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS

    The impeachment narrative is going well at the moment.  The Democrats in the House of Representatives are making daily headlines about both substance and process.  They throw in a few Ukraine facts and witnesses that support the nar...

    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...

    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...

    PERSPECTIVE FROM AFAR

    Imagine a place where people seem to enjoy meeting in cafes, bars, and restaurants to talk with each other, connecting with other human beings to enjoy the moment.  Imagine casual eye contact like it used to be.  Imagine Spain.  I recently got back...

    THIS NONSENSE HAS GOT TO STOP

    With the Attorney General’s attaboy channeling of Robert Mueller’s investigation results bestowed upon Trump, it is increasingly likely that it falls upon the American electorate to halt the daily governmental carnage in our midst.  The US...

    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...

    MOVE LEFT AMERICA, A NEW MESSAGE IS COMING

    It is time once again to take stock of the shocking level of disinterest among the political and corporate classes in the well-being of the lower classes in America. First, despite routine repetition of the notion that America...

    CAN AMERICA BEGIN TO FIND ITS WAY?

    Here comes the cavalry, maybe.  A US House of Representatives controlled by the Democratic Party is empowered to start the ball rolling on addressing America’s real needs and to change the dynamic of a government now in full retreat fr...

    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...
