Case Law [sic]
Sam Aurelius Milam III
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageHere's a definition.
5x5 Page Background GIF Image

sic, adv.  [L.]  Thus;  it is so;  in a quotation, used within brackets in order to call attention to the fact that the quotation is literally given, though containing an ingrammaticism or a misstatement;  as, whom [sic] do men say that I am?
 —Webster's Universal Dictionary
of the English Language, 1910-1911
5x5 Page Background GIF Image
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageI'll extend the usage to such things as the title of an article, such as Case Law [sic], above.  Why?  The next definition provides the reason.
5x5 Page Background GIF Image
Law vs. Legislation — The term law properly addresses things that are inherent or fundamental.  It addresses things that men observe or discover, such as the law of gravity or the law of supply and demand.  Laws operate of their own accord, whether or not any man is even aware of them.  They don't require enforcement by men.  Any violation of a law will result in a consequence, without the intervention of men.  The term legislation properly addresses the proclamations and declarations of men, usually intended to compel or to prohibit some specified behavior.  Legislation doesn't operate of its own accord.  The violation of legislation might not cause any consequence at all unless such violation is observed by men and such consequence is enforced by men.
5x5 Page Background GIF Image
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageAs it happens, case law [sic] is inherently unconstitutional in the USA.  Here's the reason.
5x5 Page Background GIF Image
All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.
Constitution for the
United States of America
Article I, Section I, clause 1
5x5 Page Background GIF Image
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageThus, the writers of the U.S. constitution intended that only the Congress, consisting of only the Senate and the House of Representatives, could make legislation.  Court decisions were not intended to have the effect of legislation.  That fact was previously known and acknowledged.
5x5 Page Background GIF Image
JUDGMENT  ....  The judgment must confine itself to the question raised before the court, and cannot extend beyond it.  For example, where the plaintiff sues for an injury committed on his lands by animals owned and kept carelessly by defendant, the judgment may be for damages, but it cannot command the defendant for the future to keep his cattle out of the plaintiff's land.  That would be to usurp the power of the legislature.  A judgment declares the rights which belong to the citizen, the law [sic] alone rules future actions.  The law [sic] commands all men, it is the same for all, because it is general;  judgments are particular decisions, which apply only to particular persons, and bind no others;  they vary like the circumstances on which they are founded.... 
5x5 Page Background GIF Image
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageIf the courts were in compliance with the U.S. constitution, then every case would be tried entirely from scratch, without any reference at all to any previous case.  Between 1889 and 1979, some big changes happened.
5x5 Page Background GIF Image
Case law [sic].  The aggregate of reported cases as forming a body of jurisprudence, or the law [sic] of a particular subject as evidenced or formed by the adjudged cases, in distinction to statutes and other sources of law [sic]....
Black's Law [sic] Dictionary, 1979
<underline added>
Judge-made law [sic]  ….  It is perhaps more commonly used as meaning, simply, the law [sic] established by judicial precedent and decisions.  Laws [sic] having their source in judicial decisions as opposed to laws [sic] having their source in statutes or administrative regulations.
Black's Law [sic] Dictionary, 1979
<underline added>
5x5 Page Background GIF Image
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageSo, the entire judicial process in the United States is in violation of the U.S. constitution.  It appears that everybody involved is too stupid to notice.  It's just one more argument in favor of my advocacy of personal sovereignty.  What sane and intelligent person would want to be a citizen of a government in which even the courts can't follow a few simple rules?10x5 Page Background GIF ImageGun

Signs of the Times
Sam Aurelius Milam III
Gun Necklace
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageRecently, a prisoner sent to me a letter, below, with which he included a small clipping that he took from another publication.  The prisoner was able to obtain permission for me to reprint the clipping and a copy of it is shown here.  However, I haven't read the publication from which he took it.  Thus, I'm not familiar with the author's beliefs.  I'm not commenting here on those beliefs.  This article, expressing my own beliefs, was inspired by the clipping.
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageComparing the meanings of a handgun to the meanings of a cross, with regard to Christian symbolism, is ingenious.  However, before I proceed, I'll dispense with the objections regarding other cross-shaped objects that would otherwise be raised by people who want only to confuse the issue.  For the purposes of this article, therefore, I'm referring only to symbols that represent crosses of the type that are associated with crucifixions.
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageA handgun can be used for various purposes, good or evil.  Honorable handgun symbolism will follow from honorable purposes for which handguns are used.  There aren't any honorable uses for a cross.  Inherently, a cross is an instrument of brutality, torture, and slow death.  It seems appropriate, somehow, that Christians have chosen to adorn themselves with such a symbol.  For most of its history, Christian doctrine has been used by evil people as a tool whereby they have continued to engage in the brutal kinds of behavior in which such people have always engaged.  Indeed, the good that has been done in the name of Christianity pales by comparison to the horrors that have been committed in its name.  People have been murdered in the most horrible ways that their allegedly Christian tormentors could imagine, sometimes for nothing worse than being nonbelievers.  I can't help but to notice the similarity between a cross and the stakes upon which so many people have been burned as heretics.  Even today, Christianity is one of the primary motivating forces behind repressive legislation, draconian enforcement, and zealous punishment of people whose only failure is that their behavior offends some narrow Christian notion of propriety.
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageWhenever I make such comments, I'm likely to be confronted by objections such as, "Wul, it ain't us that's doin' them ugly things, it's them other guys, an' they ain't even real Christians anyway!".  The difference isn't obvious to the rest of us.  Have you ever known a Christian who argued (for example) that prostitution ought not to be a crime?  All Christians appear to be happy that such things are illegal, making it easy to form the impression that all Christians are in favor of repressive legislation.  It's an important fact that people who're punished for noncompliance with Christian beliefs don't care if the punishment was demanded by fake Christians or by real ones.  It's easy to blame all Christians.  However, good Christians, don't despair!  The clipping that the prisoner sent to me has suggested a method by which you can distinguish yourselves from those evil "other guys".
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageHere's my suggestion.  All of those "other guys" can keep wearing the cross.  As a symbol of brutality, torture, and slow death, it suits them.  You, on the other hand, you "real" Christians, the ones who believe that the rest of us ought not to be punished for our different beliefs, you can wear around your necks and display atop your churches not the sign of brutality, torture, and slow death but, instead, the sign of the gun.  Then we'll all be able to tell the difference.  Better yet, I'll be able to criticize the "other guys" and leave the rest of you smelling like roses or, at least, like daisies.10x5 Page Background GIF ImageGun

The Letter from the Prisoner
Dear Sam,
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageI immediately thought of you when I saw this, & thought you'd get a kick out of it.  How true!  The source is on the back, published by my Christian friend, [name omitted].  (Perhaps) Then the govt could ban these religious neck-lace trinkets & steeple reminders, as potential thought crimes or a prelude — influence to "possible" thought crimes.  I guess that alone is enough by today's standards.

Letter to the Editor
Dear Sam:
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageThe information in the newsletter about the woman who was stopped from getting on to a plane [Letters to the Editor, February 2011], supposedly because she accessed your web site, is disturbing.  Recently, my email service has been somewhat erratic.  AOL has sent me messages apologizing, and saying that it's due to some sort of maintenance problem.  That might be true, or it might be that "They" are fishing for information, and the maintenance problem is merely a cover story.  The timing of this is what makes it suspicious.  I wonder how many other of your regular email correspondents are experiencing similar "mysterious’ email problems.

Somethingstorming Session
Original Source Unknown.  Forwarded by Lady Jan the Voluptuous
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageThe boss of a small company called an unexpected staff meeting in the middle of a particularly stressful week.  When all of his employees were finally present, the boss, who understood the benefits of having fun, told the burnt-out people the purpose of the meeting.  They were to have a quick contest.  The theme of the contest was "Viagra advertising slogans."  The only rule was that they had to select past advertising slogans, originally used for other products, and apply them as hypothetical slogans for Viagra.
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageThose present were divided into groups and went to work.  When they were done, they turned in their suggestions, and created a "Top Ten List."  The rest of the week went very well for everyone.
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageHere's the list, in reverse order.
10. Viagra, It's "Whaazzzzz Up!"
09. Viagra, The quicker pecker upper.
08. Viagra, Like a rock!
07. Viagra, When it absolutely, positively has to be there tonight.
06. Viagra, Be all that you can be.
05. Viagra, Reach out and touch someone.
04. Viagra, Strong enough for a woman, but made for a man.
03. Viagra, Tastes great!  More filling!
02. Viagra, We bring good things to life!
And the unanimous number one favorite:
01. This is your penis.  This is your penis on drugs.  Any questions?10x5 Page Background GIF ImageInfinity Symbol

Georgia Guidestones
Unveiled in March of 1980, Funding Source Not Revealed.
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageTen guidelines or principles are engraved on the Georgia Guidestones, in eight different languages.  Moving clockwise around the structure from due north, those languages are English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian.  I don't necessarily endorse every principle but the collection is noteworthy.

The Inscriptions

Astronomical features
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageThe orientation of the four outer stones marks the limits of the 18.6 year lunar declination cycle.  The North Star can be seen through a hole in the center column, regardless of the time.  A slot in the center column is aligned with the Sun's solstices and equinoxes.  The capstone has a 7/8" aperture that allows a ray of sunshine onto the center stone, indicating the day of the year, at noon each day.

The Georgia Guidestones are located on a hilltop in Elbert County, Georgia, approximately 9 miles north of Elberton.10x5 Page Background GIF ImageInfinity Symbol

Q:  Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for pulse?
A: No.
Q: Did you check for blood pressure?
A: No.
Q: Did you check for breathing?
A: No.
Q: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
A: No.
Q: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
