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.

    A RESOLUTE PATH TO A BETTER AMERICA

    Watching the exposure of the ugly underbelly of the American “dream” on full display in the impeachment hearings has been reaffirming for those of us in the body politic who have long thought that self-delusion, rather than freedom an...

    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...

    PLANNING FOR A PROGRESSIVE BLUE STATE FUTURE

    I have been thinking a lot lately about the state of the states in America.  For now, the nation is stuck with a Constitution that created a federation of states with a central federal government of limited powers.  While thi...

    VENAL "LEADERS" ARE FLEECING AMERICA

    Recent “breaking news" coverage of the Mueller investigation of Trump and his cabal and everything Stormy leaves the impression that lawyers of every stripe have their tentacles in all aspects of the sordid Trump drama.  And just whe...

    A PARTY THAT MOST OF US MISSED

    The bastions of conscience that are America’s corporate giants can hardly wait to spend the fruits of their latest income tsunami resulting from Trump’s corporate windfall tax scheme.  As we speak, Amazon is on the prowl for a second corpo...
