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.

    COLLECTIVE CONSCIENCE FEEDS THE SOUL

    The year 2019 is ending.  Traditions abound to celebrate the coming of a new year, and this time around a new decade.  There seems to be some notion that celebrating the coming year will wash away all of the detritus of the year just...

    A RESOLUTE PATH TO A BETTER AMERICA

    Watching the exposure of the ugly underbelly of the American “dream” on full display in the impeachment hearings has been reaffirming for those of us in the body politic who have long thought that self-delusion, rather than freedom an...

    GIVE IT UP AND GET OUT OF THE WAY

    With the next US presidential election right around the corner, I feel compelled to make some predictions based on recent events.  Billionaires seem like a good place to start.  No billionaire is going to win in 2020 with or without dis...

    STEP BEYOND THE DUNG AND DEMAND SOMETHING BETTER

    It seems like “implosion” should be the word of the day or week.  I think that the end of the Trump disaster is at hand.  However, I just want it to come slowly enough and painfully enough that the Republican Party in Ame...

    KIDS SUFFER WHILE THE LIAR IN CHIEF PERFORMS FOR THE CAMERAS

    It is hard to watch a president of the United States butcher his native language whenever he opens his mouth.  Even when trying to articulate a simplistic vision for America and an avenue to get there, little...

    KIDS CONFRONT AMERICA’S GUN CULTURE

    The day before 800,000 or so of their constituents showed up in Washington, DC for the recent March for Our Lives, the US Congress recessed yet again and left town.  At the same time, Trump fled to his golf course in Florida, not far...

    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...

    MEANWHILE, DADDY TAKES AMERICA DOWN WITH HIM

    I have always been a big fan of Ivanka Trump.  It is hard to figure out how Donald Trump, an intellectually challenged and relatively ugly creep, could produce the divine Ivanka.  But then you ask, how could someone so divine...

    HUMANE OUTCOMES DEFINE A NATION’S WORTH

    Changing times can be hard times, particularly for those without much of a moral compass to guide them.  It seems that after millennia of harassment and abuse, women have chosen 2017 to find their voice.  Likewise, after decades o...

    GIVING OF ONESELF IS THE BEST RESISTANCE

    The Holiday Season is upon us again.  Time for another holly, jolly Christmas, or whatever other celebratory shrine to consumption rings your bell.  As a pagan who annually shares space with a Christmas tree, I can assure you tha...
