Crash Site Recognition
EgyptAir Flight MS843

This is another in the series of articles in which I'm showing pictures of airplane crash sites. I intend the pictures to clarify the difference between what is and what isn't a crash site. It's important for people to be able to recognize the difference. It seems to me that the difference ought to be obvious but, apparently, some people believe that a situation is a crash site, regardless of obvious evidence to the contrary, just because the government says that it is. Study the pictures and learn to determine for yourself what is, and what isn't, a crash site.
Crash Statistics and Description
Letters to the Editor
The following message is in response to my editorial reply in the April issue, after Ptosis commented about my article Predators.
OK: You're right I don't have a clear understanding so I googled it....
There's not a clear line there when we're talking about at what age difference we're talking about a relationship between an adult and a teen and two peers: that's somewhat arbitrary. Personally, I think that if you're asking about someone 18 or 19, for instance, that
|strikes me as pretty same-age to a 23-year-old,
and is not something I'd consider hebephilic behavior. If we're talking
about someone your age and someone 14 or 15, on the other hand, I'd say
we're no longer talking about peers, particularly when we consider how
much change happens on all levels in just the handful of years that are
IMHO it is still fucking CREEPY with a big "EW" factor - just like some old male/female is have sex with another person with a 40 age difference.
Your mention of relationships between people of widely different ages brings to mind something that I read many years ago, probably while I was in college. I don't remember the name of the article or of the author. Anyway, the author proposed that everybody involved would benefit from marriages between middle-aged men and young women. Here are some of his comments, as I remember them.
By marrying a middle-aged man, a young woman would be getting a man who was old enough to have established himself. She wouldn't need to guess if he could support her and the children. She'd know what she was getting. The man would get that dream of all older men, a sweet young thing. She would be young and healthy enough to have children. The middle-aged man, when he married her, would already have a lot of experience with women. Thus, she wouldn't have to go through his learning process. He could satisfy her sexually, right away. A new bride might appreciate that. Given the age difference, the man would probably die of old age while his wife was relatively young, maybe at about the time that the children were leaving home. That would leave his accumulated estate for the benefit of his widow. She'd be free of him and the kids, relatively young, and have the residue of his estate for her own enjoyment. And, where would the middle-aged men have acquired all of that experience with women, while they were young? From those well-healed, experienced older widows who were out looking for fun.
Any problems that might arise in such marriages can just as easily arise in the kind of marriages that we have today. So, I don't see any particular disadvantage to the idea. I'm not necessarily either advocating or opposing such relationships. As with many other things, people ought to make their own decisions and everybody else ought to mind their own business, "EW" factor or no "EW" factor.
.... Everybody knows what the other guys should do and they want laws to make them do it. Why can't we all just live and let live?
Your April Frontiersman is excellent throughout and touches on many important subjects.
The Lufthansa crash demonstrates that the media is mostly image and very skimpy on content. The airline goofed but won't admit it.
On prison slavery I can only say that the purpose of the prison system should be to make law abiding citizens out of convicts. More on this later. It is one of my pet subjects right now.
On Black Annie and racism, have you noticed that a black person may be good or bad and can be just as racist as a white person? It is not the difference in race that matters. It is our attitudes. It is really not that difficult to get along if we do not classify others or ourselves.
Your comments on the flag issue were right on. The flag was indeed only a symbol of what the students disliked.
Best to you,
Your "live and let live" idea brings to mind an article that I published in 1995, on page 2 of the September issue of that year. I suggest that everybody should read the article because it doesn't seem to have been used yet. There hasn't been any improvement at all. The things that I was fighting then, I'm still fighting now.
I can suggest a different point of view about the prisons. When you consider the nature of the legislation and the fact that citizenship is only another form of slavery, then maybe the goal of "law" abiding citizens isn't such a good idea. The prisons might already be performing a better service than that. My impression is that the prisoners understand the situation a lot better than most of my other subscribers. Maybe the prisons are destroying the brainwashing and creating a group of people who can recognize a police state when they see one.
Yes, I've noticed that blacks can be just as racist as whites. Racism is human behavior, not just white behavior. Surprisingly, blacks can sometimes be prejudiced against other blacks. Many years ago, I had a black girlfriend, let's call her GFH. Every time that
|we were out in public together, and another
black woman came into view, GFH would grab my arm and start strutting.
She was showing off her white boyfriend. On one such occasion, when
the other black woman walked past us, she muttered in a stage whisper to
GFH, "How sweet!" That's a true story.|
Dear Mr Milam;
Thank you, for carrying the truth forward and allowing the silenced to have a voice....

A Slave by Any Other Name
Sam Aurelius Milam III
The Fourteenth Amendment informs us that a citizen of the United States is subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. government. The various dictionaries inform us that jurisdiction means power and control. Since the government doesn't regard citizenship as being voluntary, and since a citizen is within the power and control of the government, there isn't much difference between citizenship and slavery. Anybody who's in doubt can consider the way that the government controls the behavior of citizens.
There are three kinds of behavior in the United States: required behavior, prohibited behavior, and regulated behavior. If you're caught failing to engage in required behavior, then the government will punish you. If you're caught engaging in prohibited behavior, then the government will punish you. If you're caught engaging in regulated behavior without a license or a permit, then the government will punish you. If you try to resist the punishment, then the government will initiate the use of force against you. If you try to resist the use of force against you, then the government will kill you. The authority of a master to punish or kill a slave verifies the nature of the relationship.
Smitten With Embarrassment Department
Sam Aurelius Milam III
In the April 2013 Frontiersman, I wrote an article about an NCIS episode named Chained. Among other comments, I criticized the writers for a scene in which DiNozzo and a prisoner changed clothes while they were handcuffed together. While I was writing the article, I started to doubt my memory. Could the writers really have made such a stupid mistake? To check on it, I bought the DVD and watched that sequence on my computer, several times, in step-frame mode. Yes, while DiNozzo and the prisoner were completing the change-of-clothes scene, they definitely stayed handcuffed together. So far as I could tell, the seemingly impossible change-of-clothes wasn't explained.
In spite of the fact that the team members on NCIS tend to behave like Nazi thugs, it's an entertaining show. I'm quite a fan. I've seen most of the episodes several times and, this past March, I watched Chained again. Here's the problem. While I was watching that episode again, I noticed in a subsequent scene, after the change-of-clothes scene, that the shirt sleeves on the hand-cuffed arms of both men appeared to have been cut from cuff to shoulder, and then crudely mended. See the picture. The scene is in a truck in a wooded region and, consequently, it's poorly lighted and difficult to see. It appears very briefly, for only a second or less. So, it's easy to understand how I missed it. I haven't noticed any other scene in the entire episode in which the condition of the sleeves is visible. Even so, it appears that the writers didn't make the stupid error of which I accused them. Consequently, I'm smitten with embarrassment.
