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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    RESISTANCE AMID THE DELUGE OF DELUSION

    For those of you who thought that having a dream or being a dreamer is a good thing, think again.  Imagine being a “dreamer” and finding out that your dream car is underwater and headed toward the Gulf of Mexico without you.  Imag...

    COLLECTIVE CONFRONTATION WITH AMERICA’S TROUBLED PAST

    It has happened again, but will it amount to anything this time?  An unprincipled and ignorant narcissist laid bare the depth of the social and racial divide in America that elected a good old 20th century racist as...

    DEMOCRATS OFFER FREE ICE CREAM

    I guess that “New Deal” and “Let’s Make a Deal” were already taken, so America’s Democratic Party leaders settled on “A Better Deal.”*  As a floundering opposition party seeking to become an opposition party with a meaningful agenda, “a be...

    THE PRIVILEGED PROMISE OF A TRICKLE DOWN PARADISE

    The Republicans in the United States Congress are still mired in the morass of a major piece of tax legislation cleverly disguised as healthcare legislation.  The overwhelming beneficiaries of their proposed tax legislat...

    OBAMA MODELS A NEW ROLE

    It sure is nice to see former President Obama get back into the public arena.  As has been widely reported, he and his wife took some time after the inauguration of his successor to wallow in the embrace of a $65 million book deal and hang out wi...
