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...

    FACTS FINALLY SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS

    The impeachment narrative is going well at the moment.  The Democrats in the House of Representatives are making daily headlines about both substance and process.  They throw in a few Ukraine facts and witnesses that support the nar...

    A DYING IMMIGRANT CHILD TORCHES AMERICA

    It is surely no secret that a significant portion of the American electorate hopes that the national nightmare of the Trump administration will begin to end in November 2020.  Beyond hoping, many have been moved to activism and ac...

    BRINGING THE KILLING FIELDS CLOSER TO HOME

    It may be foreign adventure time again for the good old USA.  With troops being pulled out of Syria and Afghanistan after successfully “vanquishing” the enemy and the wall being built to stop the hoards headed our way from Cent...

    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...

    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...

    “AMERICA FIRST” EXPOSES ITSELF

    I am recently returned from a month of travel in Europe.  While there, I searched far and wide for anyone who had a good word for Trump and managed to find one guy in Scotland who seemed a bit intoxicated who thought that Trump was a man o...

    AN EMPOWERED FOOL IS AT THE HELM

    Virtually all US presidents seem to learn very quickly how to use America’s military might to kill, maim and destroy.  It doesn’t seem to matter at all what they promised to the never suspecting populace about this critical issue.  Get e...

    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...

    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...
