FK – What, you’ve never skylarked with or succored the lads?
To be ‘fair’ if that’s possible in this, sheeple and people at that time saw things differently. Kids were ‘taught to swim’ by simply throwing them in the water and if they successfully dog paddled to shore they were considered to be swimmers, and could maintain this falsehood their entire lives unless they ran upon a situation where it was necessary to float, at which point they likely drowned.
The dynamite doesn’t surprise me either. They weren’t as squeamish in those days. Some of them may have been veterans and had thus seen far worse things than a mangled drowned body.
On the other hand, I wouldn’t put anything past them since they consider us to be livestock.
And to be clear on a point: If you don’t learn how to relax and float you can’t swim and will begin to sink once you lose the energy to tread water or fight your way across the surface, which is what non-swimmers are doing.
Again, if you can’t float, you can’t swim. If you’re in water over your head and run out of energy to tread water or fight your way across the surface, which is what non-swimmers do, then you will sink and die.
All of which has put me on a tangent: Can you float like a pancake?
FK – Most kids of that age are naturally not afraid of the water. But if they can’t float they can’t swim and can die!
There’s no excuse for not drown proofing kids:
FK – Babies are natural floaters. I’m not convinced that some of them won’t have to relearn the skill as they get older unless they grow up around the water.
What am I saying? This planet is 70 percent water. Kentucky has more miles of running water than any state except Alaska. Swimming is one of the most basic survival skills.
And for the grownups who may be old enough to be afraid of the water:
FK – There’s no excuse for anyone of any age not knowing how to swim.
And more on floating:
FK – I was taught to float and get used to having my face in the water by holding onto the edge of the pool in shallow water and turning my head and breathing as if doing the freestyle stroke. It can take time for some.
Learning to overcome the impulse to panic is the key, as with all things. Panic in the water and you die. For those who are a little more daring:
Yeah, this is an old vid but the topic is still very ‘fresh.’
FK – Marx’s solutions were evil but he was right about the problem. Most people/sheeple have jobs(just over broke) because they’re poor, not because they give a drowned rat’s ass about the corporate mission, which is to make the owners/stockholders richer.
Did American corporations move their factories after NAFTA was passed because they felt sorry for the peasants in Latin America and Asia? Only a moron or blatant liar would claim so.
They’d have us all on 16 hour days 6-7 days a week if they could get away with it, sleeping within walking distance of the plant/office and shopping at the company store with company script.
We do need basic laws to protect workers and the environment with real penalties for the corporate workaholic assholes, not just fines their companies can easily pay then return to ‘business as usual,’ while keeping the modern commies out of our governments.
And we should force the assholes to allow part time hours for those who actually want a life outside of their ‘job’ and penalize them for forcing their workers to commit slow or fast suicide, degrading their health, in the name of keeping a job. If I order something from any online retailer I have absolutely no right to expect anyone involved in that process to commit fast or slow suicide or degrade their health in the name of getting that product to me. Neither do the corporations that make, warehouse or sell those products.
Many workers have jobs just so they can have health insurance. Basic medical coverage needs to be affordable. The insurance companies are like the banksters, they wouldn’t be in business if they weren’t making money hand over fist. As the old saying goes look for the biggest nicest buildings in town.
Well now that would include the ‘just-us’ center. But that’s another vid.
As someone who’s delivered freight for corporations I know that if a driver feels required/forced to drive sleep deprived either because of a ‘just in time’ delivery system or in order to earn enough money to justify the ‘trucking lifestyle’ which is basically shit, then kills or seriously injures someone because they fell asleep at the wheel the insurance carried by the trucking company probably won’t cover all the ‘costs’ and the driver can lose everything as well as go to prison.
When companies damage their employees beyond repair they just kick them to the curb when they can because they know there’s another desperate worker waiting in line.
The key is not that the exchange is ‘voluntary’ the key is that so many are so stupid/desperate they put up with being treated like jackasses which means everyone else has to put up with the same shit treatment, if they want a ‘job.’
The commies in our govt. passed the ‘regulations,’ as in healthcare, in the name of tearing down the old system so they could install their more evil system. It wasn’t done to help anyone, but to gain power, sew discord and chaos and confusion and fear. Often they and their commie front groups are funded by the very rich men they claim to oppose.
Funny thing that.
The simple truth is that the elites know the ‘ordinary citizen’ is a herd animal that will graze and breed its way through it’s existence in this world while extolling some mindless ‘work ethic’ it was taught in school or at home or in church that was really designed to make sure it stays a good slave while working for some false ‘amerikan dream’ or ‘paradise in the next life’ with ‘pearly gates’ and golden arches, err, streets.
The income tax, brought about by the elites/banksters, was placed on every one during WWII which was also brought about by the elites/banksters, so when they steal their money out of our paychecks before they even reach our hands it proves we are still their slaves. The inter-generational parasites/constituents intentionally created by the welfare state are also slaves/tools designed to help keep the elites in power.
It’s really just one version of authoritarianism vs another because we’re still a very primitive species and we still exist in a very dark age.
FK – Well that’s as clear as mud, or lard. How does the host stay so slim? And I’m not sure we can stand another ‘crisis.’ There are so many the average brain dead sheeple is ignoring now and/or voting for or waiting for some savior to alleviate our self-created misery.
Most blue collar types don’t exercise and never will. They’re on their feet for hours a day on concrete and when I’ve done that I sure as hell didn’t feel like jogging at the end of the day.
The squirrels and deer I kill and eat here in central Kentucky don’t seem that much fatter than years ago.
There are so many fatties now it has to be something we’re all exposed to, besides the weaponvision.
FK – It was easier for me because I was still a teenager when the 80s came in. When I was fitted for a suit after college graduation I told the store clerk I’d always be that size. I’ll never forget the look she gave me. I’ve haven’t seen 28, in age or inches in a very long time.
Someone with more spare time than me can read this:
FK – It’s commie care. The Marxist mutt is just a tool. The klintons tried to do the same thing.
At age 12 or so I weighed 168 lbs. Didn’t get to the point of my skin folding but close. Then as I grew into my teen years it slowly melted away as I grew up enough to realize I couldn’t eat that way all the time. By my late teens I was almost too skinny, like my mother had been. What I needed were parents or guardians or whatever that didn’t allow me to eat that second full plate of food when I was 8 or 9 years old and then keep deserts around the house.
But then at that time, in the 60s and 70s, I was the exception to the rule. Most kids ate like horses and were active, or at least more active than me, and most kids weren’t fat. What’s the percentage now? I think it’s something in the food, the growth hormones, or something that the public at large wasn’t getting back then. I was raised mostly on garden grown vegetables but much of our meat did come from the grocery but the additives in the feed probably weren’t the same back then.
In my mid forties I got up to about 235 and felt like crap all the time and had to stop gaining 10 lbs every winter from all the flour and sugar based stuff I was stuffing in my mouth. After age 40 or so you can’t eat like you did at 25. Simple fact.
Just watched the vid in question and I agree with her except for the ‘shaming’ part, which maybe is the point. Many obese people may also suffer from some form of depression and the ‘shaming’ thing may not work so well with them.
We need to return to national conscription and send all young adults to boot camp and basic military training for about 6 months. And if we’re gonna have govt. schools then there should be a focus on proper diet and exercise which would mean they have to hire people for their cafeterias who know more than how to open a can and turn on the stove and gym teachers who’ll focus on the kids who need help and not the athletes.
FK – The comments on this vid were disabled. I’m guessing after it became so popular, or unpopular, whatever the case may be. Here’s my post to her YouTube discussion board:
Now that I’ve seen some of the responses below I agree with her fat vid even more except for the fact that lots of fatties suffer from some form of depression as well and ‘shaming’ them may not help. Otherwise she is spot on. We need to return to conscription for our young adults. Ship them off to boot camp regardless of their entry condition and get them in shape provide all with basic military training because if our tech ever fails or falls behind guess what?
She’s brave enough to stand up to mainstream morons:
FK – (Her interview starts about 20 minutes in. I had to click through as I generally can’t stand this kind of garbage.)
“You’re here, this is your shot….” the old commie bitch says. What arrogance. The mainstream can’t come to grips with the fact that it’s dying.
Watching her face off with this bunch of commie cows makes me respect her even more.
“This sounds like you’re against women.” – Thanks for proving my point commie cow.
It’s all about divide and conquer for the commies. They’ve developed it into an art form.
Too many morons depend on trash like this show to tell them what to think. That’s why they’re ‘offended’ by reality. One day reality will show up and crush them and they won’t even have time to whine about it.
