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.

    New Military Draft

    US President Trump announced today that his bone spurs have healed so he is now healthy enough to be drafted into the military.  To celebrate his good fortune, Trump signed an Executive Order reinstating the military draft.  He instructed his Attorney General Bill Barr to develop a legal framework for the reinstated draft that would ensure "the fairest draft in history."  He concluded his remarks by noting that Obama and Hillary should be priority draftees under any "fair" plan.

    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 MIRAGE OF PRINCIPLE

    In today’s America, we seem to come face-to-face with some politician’s horse’s ass moment on an almost daily basis.  But Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona moved into horse’s ass hall of fame territory after initially trying to sound like a man of prin...

    “FIRE ANTS” URGENTLY REVISITED*

    As a general proposition, I refrain from giving Republicans the benefit of my advice, but Trump is so pathetically ignorant that I feel like I need to step in to help.  My country needs me, particularly with John McCain largely on the dis...

    ANGRY AND STUPID PUT US ALL AT RISK

    I have decided that my life matters, so I can’t countenance a Trump victory and another Republican Congress.  If this seems a bit self-indulgent, it is.  I am trying to figure out what the Republican Party has done for me lately, so I...

    AMERICA CONFRONTS GUNS, GODS, AND BORDERS

    America gets better every day.  Just when you thought the record for the number of folks slaughtered by gun violence in a single incident might stick forever at 32 (Virginia Tech, April 2007), up steps a true born-in-America Ame...
