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...

    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...

    COLLECTIVE COMA OVERWHELMS COLLECTIVE CONSCIENCE

    I happen to like to listen to country music, Christian preaching, evangelical problem-solving, and right-wing radio.  So, I had a lot to listen to on my recent solo car and camping journey through West Virginia, Kentucky,...
