Being a low level pilot you see a lot more than you do from 30,000 feet in an airliner. You see the farmers planting their crops and in the end the harvest. I am not a farmer but they are almost 100% dependent on Mother Nature. Not enough rain, to much rain, rain at the wrong time and rain is just one factor.
You can get a lot from a map reconnaissance.
The poem Low Flight was written as a parody to High Flight.

LOW FLIGHT
Oh, I've slipped the surly bonds of earth
And hovered out of ground effect on semi-rigid blades;
Earthward I've auto'ed and met the rising brush of non-paved terrain
And done a thousand things you would never care to
Skidded and dropped and flared
Low in the heat soaked roar.
Confined there, I've chased the earthbound traffic
And lost the race to insignificant headwinds;
Forward and up a little in ground effect
I've topped the General's hedge with drooping turns
Where never Skyhawk [Navy A-4] or even Phantom [F-4] flew.
Shaking and pulling collective,
I've lumbered The low untresspassed halls of victor airways [low altitude airways][high altitude airways start at 18,000 feet],
Put out my hand and touched a tree.

Other versions of Low Flight.

Alternate versions[edit source]

Another version, dedicated to those who fly close air support for ground forces - REALLY close air, the following is from the prospective of flying 50 feet AGL at 400 KIAS (knots indicated airspeed).

LOW FLIGHT
Oh, I've slipped the swirling clouds of dust
A few feet from the dirt.
I have flown my plane low enough
To make my bottom hurt.
I've raced over desert, hills, through valleys,
And mountain passes too.
Frolicked in the trees
Where only gray squirrels flew.

Chasing cows along the way,
Disturbing ram and ewe.
I've done a hundred other things
You damned well shouldn't do.
I have smacked the tiny sparrow,
Bluebird, robin, and the rest.
Dragged vorticies through branches
Throwing eggs out of their nests.

I've hurled through total darkness
Just as blind as I could be,
And spent the night in terror
Of things I could not see.
I've turned my eyes to heaven
Sweating bullets through the flight,
Reached out my hand and pressed-to-test
—the Master Caution light.

C-130 Version Low Flight

Oh, I have slipped through
swirling clouds of dust,
A few feet from the dirt,
I've flown the C-130 low enough,
To make my bottom hurt.

I've flown in the desert, hills and valleys,
Mountains too,
Frolicked in the trees,
Where only flying squirrels flew.

Chased the frightened cows along,
Disturbed the ram and ewe,
And done a hundred other things
That you'd not care to do.

I've smacked the tiny sparrow,
Bluebird, robin, all the rest,
I've ingested baby eagles,
Simply sucked them from their nest.

I've streaked through total darkness,
Just the other guys and me,
And spent the night in terror of
Things I could not see.

I turned my eyes to heaven,
As I sweated through the flight,
Put out my hand and touched,
The Fire Warning Light.

"High Flight"
by John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
of sun-split clouds,— and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air....

Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.
Where never lark, or even eagle flew —
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
- Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

Blacks will bully whites in schools when they are majority. The exact opposite, I presume, will happen when whites outnumber blacks.
To call Poppo and Wojo rednecks, particularly Poppo, is as logical as calling the Ayatollah Khomeni the Pope.
You do know Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter are rednecks, don't you?!?

Ah the difference is, 1) blacks tend to be more violent than whites (just look at the crime rates)and 2) they are way to often given a free pass as compared to whites.
You see "social justice" dictates that black people have the right to attack white people because their distant relatives had been slaves. Two wrongs never make a Rev. Wright.

So, you believe that other races that have endured slavery, or other races that were slave owners, and there were plenty, justify your 200 years of slavery plus 100 years of discrimination? I don't give a hoot who practiced or practices it today or who were or are the slaves, IT IS WRONG, IT IS AN ABUSE OF HUMAN BEINGS, an affront to humanity. I'm well aware that slavery is still practiced today in many lands, and it is unbearable, unacceptable and darn it, why aren't we, the supposedly powerful nations, doing something about it?
I know about the (Mi)'Raj - you don't. Many black Africans who make the pilgrimage to Mecca are never seen again, particularly young men and women. They are often abducted, plain and simple, by rich Arab potentates. We know about this. Why aren't we acting? Petrol? Hmmmm. We are hypocrites.
As usual, the point went right over your head. Virtually all races in America have slavery attached to it, at some point in time. So, why are you not crying out for those people? You must think you're some kind of martyr or something. What a shame to bytch about something you can't change! You want to fix all the ills of the world but, in reality, you can't fix one of them! All you can do is complain. Shut up already!

I would say it is a push. Based on the information provided.
Some kid born into being raised in a ghetto? Or a suburban childhood with parents that can make a genuine effort to see you educated?
If you are in favor of reparations you should probably have some idea of how to make something at least a little closer to right.
What do they deserve?
Money? Or would that be insulting? And how much? Who pays the bill?
Preferential treatment in the job market?
40 acres and a mule?
Eat free at red lobster on Wednesdays?
Nothing works.
What about the Irish? Or the Chinese? They practically built America on waitress wages.
If you can find an Indian... what about him?
I don't think anyone alive today owes anyone else alive today anything at all that isn't included in your taxes.
You wrote : "What about the Irish? Or the Chinese? They practically built America on waitress wages."

Funny you should think that. At least they got waitress wages. The blacks did a whole lot more than "practically built America", they did it for NO wages.

Again, the question. We both have the same intelligence, the same schooling, the same qualifications. I am white, you are black. Tell me frankly, who has the better chance of success?

As to how to "fix it", I have no idea, but as I said, how about treating everyone the same way? And pursuing affirmative action, you gotta let them get a foot in the door to offset those centuries of unfairness. Some money, yes but not too much, it doesn't work.

I just see a problem, is all. It won't go away by itself and you ask me what I would do while so-called experts and consultants have fooled around and toyed with the problem for so long, and paid millions to do it. And you ask me what should be done? I don't rightly know. But let's start you and me treating minorities , blacks included, with fairness and dignity.

Scrutiny,
I'm just sayin' that when time is of the essence, they often gotta play it safe and go with the Cat scan in spite of the cost drawbacks.
It does give them a lot of information real fast.
I was just using that as an example.

Look, if you'll kindly start all over again and express yourself in comprehensible English, I will gladly reply. What the hell does "Virtually all races in America have slavery attached to it, at some point in time" mean? America as in USA? What races apart from the blacks were enslaved in the US?

free pass? Why is over half of the prison population more than half black? I sense you don't know what you're talking about. Free pass? Free pass is George Zimmerman. And Rogue, I haven't read a single comment on your part on his latest escapade. Is he still armed? Did he get ANOTHER free pass?

TRUCKERS ROAR TO D.C. WITH IMPEACHMENT MOVEMENT
'The goal is to wake up the sleeping giant, the people of America'

Facebook tries to shut truckers down

On Sept. 22, Facebook removed the truckers’ Facebook page,“Truckers to Shutdown America,” which had accumulated 86,000 “likes” within days of its launch.

“Political opponents attacked the Truckers to Shutdown America page within days, and they exploited a little known (to the public) feature on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter called ‘community standards’ flagging, which allows them to instantaneously shut down an account on these social media platforms,” the truckers group explained in a press release.

“[A]n administrator of the page offended someone by saying,‘God bless you, and God bless America.”

Do they not know they are messing with fire?
If the Truckers deem it so they could shut down the whole Country. Which I for one would applaud!
I will support the Truckers anyway I can including praying for them.

I drove a long nose International with the Owner Operator package hauling mail when I first retired out of the military.

My respect and heartfelt thanks go's out to the men and woman that haul this Country's life blood across the nation.

Fantastic! Good for the truckers! America's backbone!!! Finally, somebody with a backbone!! As for Facebook, I'm done. Closed my account. Everybody should do the same. Great they're also marching on Facebook's HQ. This is what the US is all about! As for shutting down the Facebook info - that's what liberals do!!!! They're snakes!! Nasty, scheming, devious bastards. Leftists can't stand the light of day, a constitution, or allow anyone to disagree with them. They're like gnats!

speakthetruth 34 minutes ago
Truckers do not run a empty load, pick up every illegal you find (at least thirty per truck) and once in DC, dump them and let congress take them in. They want them in the US so bad, wanting us to give them a free ride, then do so,

Pick up; any town USA,

drop off: Washington DC, suburbs of Arlington, and any town in MAryland.

one way ticket only.

Be sure to drop a few loads at Martha Vinegary, any or all golf courses in the DC area.

That's easy. They were given a free pass ..... until they murdered someone. The average convenience store robber robs five stores before he shoots and kills someone!!!
George Zimmerman was NOT a serial criminal. How many people did Trayvon assault before he assaulted someone with a gun?
Oh, did you hear about the gun being tabbed to death after a football game in California a few days ago? It looks like self defence. Everyone has the right of self defence. EVERYONE!!!
