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.

    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...

     AMERICA WALLOWS IN A MORAL SWAMP

    There is so much that needs to be said about today’s American trajectory, but only a limited amount of space to say it. So, I am going to start off with a concept that seems so obvious but to which much of America has seemed so obliviou...

    COLLECTIVE CONFRONTATION WITH AMERICA’S TROUBLED PAST

    It has happened again, but will it amount to anything this time?  An unprincipled and ignorant narcissist laid bare the depth of the social and racial divide in America that elected a good old 20th century racist as...

    DEMOCRATS OFFER FREE ICE CREAM

    I guess that “New Deal” and “Let’s Make a Deal” were already taken, so America’s Democratic Party leaders settled on “A Better Deal.”*  As a floundering opposition party seeking to become an opposition party with a meaningful agenda, “a be...

    “FIRE ANTS” URGENTLY REVISITED*

    As a general proposition, I refrain from giving Republicans the benefit of my advice, but Trump is so pathetically ignorant that I feel like I need to step in to help.  My country needs me, particularly with John McCain largely on the dis...

    THE PRIVILEGED PROMISE OF A TRICKLE DOWN PARADISE

    The Republicans in the United States Congress are still mired in the morass of a major piece of tax legislation cleverly disguised as healthcare legislation.  The overwhelming beneficiaries of their proposed tax legislat...

    AMERICAN PUBLIC POLICY – VOID OF HUMANITY

    Maybe it is time for a Humanity Index for America, a way to measure the humanity of this nation’s public policy initiatives.  The Index should be free of political bias, ideology, and the rancor presently undermining the capacit...

    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...

    RESISTANCE WITHOUT SACRIFICE WON’T STOP ANYTHING

    There were way too many people watching Trump get inaugurated.  His speech was great.  And the Cabinet is the best in American history.  Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s move on to substance.  Have you eve...

    RESIST AND RENEW - THE QUEST FOR A COLLECTIVE CONSCIENCE

    The depth of the problem has finally dawned on me.  I went into the US presidential election expecting that an ignorant electorate could really get it wrong, and they did.  And, since I am not a big fan of America...
