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.

    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...

    CAN AMERICA BEGIN TO FIND ITS WAY?

    Here comes the cavalry, maybe.  A US House of Representatives controlled by the Democratic Party is empowered to start the ball rolling on addressing America’s real needs and to change the dynamic of a government now in full retreat fr...

    A NATION AWASH IN A SEA OF IGNORANCE

    The word “deplorable” got its own place in political lore when Hillary Clinton decided to create a “basket of deplorables” chock full of people who were buying so much of what Trump was selling in the 2016 presidential election.*  No...

    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...

    DEALING DEATH BY FIREARM

    Here we are again, amid the greatest aggregation of firearms in the history of mankind, still pissing in an exceptionally fetid urinal.  What passes in America for political leadership is again paralyzed by an organized cabal of venal corporate...

    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...

    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...

    CONSTANT VIGILANCE AND CONTINUOUS RESISTANCE

    If you are in the wilderness being stalked by a large predator, you probably won’t notice the fire ants headed for your crotch until it is too late.  However, by the time the predator moves on to other prey, your crotch could...

    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...

    WHERE KNOWING NOTHING HELPS A LOT

     

    It is time for a little walk on the light side.  I try not to enjoy myself too much at the expense of others, but I am having a great time with the Republican Party at the moment.  There used to be a political party in America in the...
