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.

    AMERICA’S LOST SOUL, AGAIN

    I got back from a couple of weeks of wandering in Mexico just in time to see the scariest moment of the Trump regime.  There was Trump entering the halls of the US Congress to give his first speech to the assembled Representatives, Senators, a...

    RESISTANCE WITHOUT SACRIFICE WON’T STOP ANYTHING

    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...

    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...
