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.

    AWASH IN A SEA OF HYPOCRISY

    Cradled in the midst of all that is wrong with Trump and his silent and venal Republican accomplices is more hypocrisy than one essay could ever capture.  But I am going try.  To hit the ground running, racism is a good place to start....

    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...

    A DYING IMMIGRANT CHILD TORCHES AMERICA

    It is surely no secret that a significant portion of the American electorate hopes that the national nightmare of the Trump administration will begin to end in November 2020.  Beyond hoping, many have been moved to activism and ac...

    IMPEACH NOW, ASK QUESTIONS LATER

    When times are bad, it always seems that bad people win.  When times are good, bad people always win.  When bad people win, the rest of us almost always lose.  Of late, bad people are succeeding at an alarming rate, most often with an am...

    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...

    BUT MAYBE WE CAN BE BETTER TOMORROW

    Just when some recent events suggest a ray of hope for America’s moral compass that might even result in a re-examination of the nation’s contract with humanity, the supposedly good Christian folks of Iowa returned Steve King to the U...

    AMERICA LURCHES TO THE PRECIPICE

    America is a nation given to superlatives.  We even have a World Series that is played annually by two baseball teams chosen from only two eligible countries (29 USA teams and one from Canada).  So it is hard to get people in the US, nev...

    MEANWHILE, DADDY TAKES AMERICA DOWN WITH HIM

    I have always been a big fan of Ivanka Trump.  It is hard to figure out how Donald Trump, an intellectually challenged and relatively ugly creep, could produce the divine Ivanka.  But then you ask, how could someone so divine...
