What I Didn't Say
to Miss Andry
Sam Aurelius Milam III
I know a buxom young lass named Miss Andry. Okay, her name isn't actually Miss Andry, but she is a buxom young lass. Well, she's a bit more than buxom, kind of fat, to tell the truth, but she is a young lass. Or maybe not that young. She's younger than I am.
Anyway, some time ago, Miss Andry commented to me that some of the statements that I've made in this newsletter might be a little "anti-woman". She made the comment with some hesitation. She seemed to be afraid that I might not take it well. She seemed to feel that she was accusing me of being some sort of a heretic, or maybe even a pervert. I knew better than to argue with a woman, so I made a courteous reply and the conversation moved on to safer subjects. After I'd thought about it for a while, I decided to write this little article.
For decades, feminists have been notorious for their outspoken and flagrant anti-man statements. Here are a few simple examples that come easily to mind.
A woman can do twice the work of a man, in half the time.
Men never listen.
Men don't have sense enough to stop and ask for directions.
Men think with their penises.
Men are all sexist pigs who want only one thing from a woman.
Men can't "open up" and express their true feelings.
Miss Andry, having grown up after feminist ideology had already achieved the status of holy writ, accepts such anti-man statements as if they were the Word of God. She's been conditioned to believe that a woman can make such statements with impunity. She would accept any such statement as being correct by definition and also as being acceptable in polite company, if it was made by a woman. She disapproved of my allegedly anti-woman statements not because she believed them to be inaccurate, or even in poor taste, but because they were made by a man. That suggests to me some things about women. Maybe their anti-man statements are merely a consequence of the normal arrogance and hypocrisy of feminism. On the other hand, they might be the result of inherent but unadmitted misandry.
Letters to the Editor
I hope this finds you well.
Thanks for publishing my comments in the most recent Frontiersman I've received [November 2020, page 2]....

Play it again Sam, your music is always good to my ears! Keep doing what you do best....

Hi Sam - Your latest issue was excellent, but I am concerned about your finances.... I understand you have worked and paid into social security for a while. Since you are well past full retirement age, why don't you apply for social security, and get retroactive payments? That should provide income for you!
Tom from Redwood City
I can't give you a simple answer to your question. I can only suggest that you study jurisdiction, social contract, sovereignty, citizenship (as it's defined in the fourteenth amendment to the U.S. constitution), and the status and pedigree of the U.S. constitution. That information is available in Pharos, under the headings Liberty, Sovereignty, and the Doctrine of Social Contract and The Supreme Flaw of the Land Essays. If you study that information, then you still might not agree with me but at least you'll understand why I won't use Social Security.
Greetings. My letter finds you well I pray....
... onward to your Dec. 2020 Frontiersman, in your article "trans rights & unalien wrongs", boy did you hit it on the head. Political correctness has become an imposed secular orthodoxy and we have 2 versions fighting for ultimate control.
You have the far left trying to abolish white America. And you have the far right trying to abolish everyone who isn't white. And both sides are amazingly effective at getting both sides to war each other.
By using the media to inflame one side against the other by using topics
such as racism, homosexuality, xenophobia, religious dogmas, fear of (?)
(fill in the blank) they, (the rich), maintain control of the poor because
they effectively erase individualism and achieve "herd mentality" control
by inciting and appealing to one's bellicose nature. The rich don't
care about us or our issues. They only want to maintain control
of our money and of our labor.
Get real, people, do you really think someone like Donald Trump gives a shit whether you live or die? Nancy Pelose earns a salary every year that would take the average working man 1/3 of his life to make. Do you think she gives a shit if you go hungry?
In reality, it's not about left or right, Democrat or Republican. It's about the rich maintaining control of the masses. Research the "rich", like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway, Rothchild. They all donate money to both sides. Red and Blue. Why? To keep us fighting against each other. Instead we should rebel and overthrow and start over. That's how the USA got its start.
In your letter to the editor, J.M. from Victorville, is right in his assessment of Buddhism not being a religion.
I've done a shit ton of reading of Buddhism and Siddhartha, the real name of Buddha. Like most things, people have molested the original person involved and wrote things that weren't true of the original person Siddhartha. At 80 years old, on his death bed he said he was not a god, nor did he consider himself a prophet. Instead he was a man who tried to do right by being a service to mankind.
Siddhartha had what he considered visions of "truths", but he also would go through marathon meditation and prayer sessions while fasting, denying his body and mind of sustenance can cause hallucinations.
I know Buddhists who are also Christians. They are people who believe in God, and a person who lives by Buddhist traditions are in line with what Christ taught, love you're fellow man, give what you have, offer the other cheek to your enemy, etc. But, Buddhism has been twisted into different sects that have strayed from the original path. Anywho, I shall close.
Be safe. I really enjoyed your childhood story "Refuge".
S.H., a prisoner
... let me tell you things here have gotten much worse since I last wrote you, there was another stabbing death out in population last week, and now over 1/2 of the entire prison is infected with the Corona Virus! The whole prison is on quarantine lockdown, and they've still got me locked up in an isolation prison cell, and there is no heat at all in this building and we've all been freezing our asses off especially at night and early morning when the temperature dropped to 25 degrees! Myself and several others have filed grievance complaints about it, but it don't do no good, they lied and said the heat was on. They did feed us good for Thanksgiving, and I am sure they'll feed us good for Christmas & New Years too....
H.L., a prisonerReal Bears Do It in the Forest
Sam Aurelius Milam III
I'm not advocating censorship but, darn, it would sure be a good thing if the advertisers didn't sometimes tend to show such a deplorable lack of (sorry about this) good taste. I'm referring to some of the commercials about toilet paper. I haven't actually tried to keep track of this but I recall both blue bears and red bears. So, I suppose that there are at least two companies that are using bears to advertise their product.
Actually, the advertisers, however many of them there are, appear to be competing to see who can produce the most (sorry about this again) tasteless commercials. I'm reminded of the movie Honeysuckle Rose (1980, Willie Nelson, Dyan Cannon), where a lady member of the band commented, "If it wasn't fer bad taste you guys wouldn't have no taste at all!"
Why advertise toilet paper anyway? I've never purchased or rejected a particular brand of toilet paper because of an advertisement. People are going to buy the stuff anyway, whether or not it's advertised. Wouldn't it make more sense to declare a dividend, or even to reduce the price of the product, instead of using the funds to produce advertisements that are in such (gah!) poor taste? Also, why bears?
The blue bear advertisements have deteriorated even below (sigh) bad taste. A while back, I heard on one of them the claim that a person can use four times less of the stuff. There isn't any such thing as four times less. Four times less is mathematical gibberish. Did any of those advertisers even study arithmetic? When you multiply by four, you get four times more, not four times less. When you divide by four, you don't get four times less. You get one quarter as much. As I noted in Milam's Dictionary of Distinctions, Differences, and Other Odds and Ends, "The sloppy use of words
| both reflects and encourages sloppy thinking."
Furthermore, why would they want people to use less of their product? If they want to reduce their sales, then they have an even more puzzling problem than poor taste (whatever) or mathematical gibberish. I'm not sure just what kinds of sloppy things they might be doing in either the boardroom or the bathroom (don't want to know) but sloppy thinking is probably among them.
Be the Revolution
Sam Aurelius Milam III
The difference between one government and another, or even between one form of government and another, is a difference in degree, and not a difference in kind. All governments control people. All governments do so by force. It necessarily follows that all governments, of whatever style or form, are evil.
Any traditional revolution inherently contains the seeds of its own inevitable failure. That's true because it's necessary for any traditional revolution to be centrally organized and directed. Thus, a revolutionary movement isn't much different from a government. Every such revolution that has ever succeeded has simultaneously failed because it succeeded only in replacing one bad government with another bad government.
The only kind of revolution that has any legitimacy at all, and any hope at all of ever accomplishing anything useful, is a revolution within an individual, within his own mind. A man can't buy the revolution, or make the revolution. He can only be the revolution.
Be the revolution.

My only predicable cash flow ended in July of 2016. Since then, I've mostly been using occasional contributions, plus what I'd previously saved, which is now mostly gone. Even though I'm 74 years old and I'm being stingy with my funds, it seems likely that I'm going to outlive them. If I do, then it's going to be difficult for me to pay for things, including the publication of this newsletter and the maintenance of my websites and domain names. Things like socks, hand soap, and light bulbs also come to mind. So, donations are welcome. Maybe somebody might even buy something from the Moonlight Flea Market. Please remember that I can't cash checks or money orders. Cash is best.
My thanks to the following: El Dorado Bob; Betty; Tom, of Redwood City, California; and F.L., of Soledad, California
