LARRY BECK

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.

    KILLING OUR WAY TO A BETTER WORLD

    It always seems to work here in America, no matter how many times it shouldn’t work and no matter how many times the only real outcome is more dead bodies.  So, this time it was Trump’s turn.  Run up the flag, kick off an armed conflict...

    A DEADLY SILENCE

     

    The US media is in full-throttle political campaign mode over a year before the next Presidential election and over five months before the first real ballot is cast in any primary election.  The impact on national discourse is to magnify personality at...

    AMERICA’S NEW TASTELESS TREAT
