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...

    THIS NONSENSE HAS GOT TO STOP

    With the Attorney General’s attaboy channeling of Robert Mueller’s investigation results bestowed upon Trump, it is increasingly likely that it falls upon the American electorate to halt the daily governmental carnage in our midst.  The US...

    A CRITIQUE OF  A “FREE” PRESS IN A “FREE” SOCIETY

    It sure seems like there is no bottom to the hourly breathless “breaking news.”  There is so much “breaking news” that the attempt to convey urgency has lost any impact.  We surely need a new go-to banner for those criti...

    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...

    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...

    EXPOSING AMERICA’S INSTITUTIONAL BREAKDOWN

    America owes a debt of gratitude to Donald Trump.  However, this debt will only matter if Trump’s rise in the Republican Party, Trump’s message, and the bile of his ardent supporters becomes a catalyst for long-overdue institut...

    WHEN ANGER WINS, WE ALL LOSE

    America is slowly coming to the climax of its painfully long presidential election process.  As usual, there is much talk about choices and little talk about the process for deciding which choices to make.  With the present election cycle cu...

    AMERICA THE GREAT IS ONLY MONTHS AWAY

     

    OK world, it is time for a wake-up call.  It sure looks like “the greatest nation on earth” is going to be led in the coming four years by either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.  This will be good news for those in the greatest na...

    THE FIGHT FOR IGNORANCE IN AMERICA

     

    It is reasonable to ask how Americans have permitted their nation’s march to self-proclaimed greatness to be so retarded by its present collective march to self-induced ignorance.  With ignorance oozing from so many pores, it is hard...
