Two Bizarre (drowning)Deaths at Bohemian Grove

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.

What to teach your kids

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:

Top 10 Best Videos of 2015 – Learn Liberty

FK – Haven’t watched any of these but I’m completely in favor of modern ‘liberals’ and ‘progressives'(communists) being ‘free’ to sell their brains to medical science to further our understanding of willful ignorance and evil and how those two human traits are contributing to the created downfall of western civilization. Is that too ‘conspiratorial’ for ya’?

Speaking of ‘conspiracy’:

FK – It started decades ago. We’re so close behind the 8 ball we may never get a shot. Time to end the doomsaying and focus on victory against our greatest enemies, our domestic blood enemies.

History is transition. What will we transition to?

This law California just passed may signal the END of our Republic.

FKThe ‘republic,’ like the Roman republic, only lasted about 80 years. The amerikan military hasn’t fought a war for Liberty since 1865 and the bad guys won that one.

The only real difference is we exist under the illusion that we elect our dicatators and our empire enforces many of its edicts by other means than blood war.

It’s time for real patriot leaders to man up and cross our Rubicon, or Potomac, and re-establish the Bill of Rights, the document that makes us exceptional.

Hillview man arrested for shooting down drone; cites right to privacy

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — A Hillview man has been arrested after he shot down a drone flying over his property — but he’s not making any apologies for it.

It happened Sunday night at a home on Earlywood Way, just south of the intersection between Smith Lane and Mud Lane in Bullitt County, according to an arrest report.

Hillview Police say they were called to the home of 47-year-old William H. Merideth after someone complained about a firearm.

When they arrived, police say Merideth told them he had shot down a drone that was flying over his house. The drone was hit in mid-air and crashed in a field near Merideth’s home.

Police say the owner of the drone claimed he was flying it to get pictures of a friend’s house — and that the cost of the drone was over $1,800.

Merideth was arrested and charged with first degree criminal mischief and first degree wanton endangerment. He was booked into the Bullitt County Detention Center, and released on Monday.

WDRB News spoke with Merideth Tuesday afternoon, and he gave his side of the story.

“Sunday afternoon, the kids – my girls – were out on the back deck, and the neighbors were out in their yard,” Merideth said. “And they come in and said, ‘Dad, there’s a drone out here, flying over everybody’s yard.'”

Merideth’s neighbors saw it too.

“It was just hovering above our house and it stayed for a few moments and then she finally waved and it took off,” said neighbor Kim VanMeter.

FK – Historically there is no real ‘right to privacy’ from the air. He did a very stupid thing, even if he did use a shotgun:
