While I make mention of Brad Meltzer's show above, I haven't seen many episodes. I admit that I tend to question how much of it is real. I even question if the arrests I mention in the secret societies episode were staged. None the less, the episode implies that the Grove is tightly guarded
I'm not going to bother with your entire post because, frankly, I've learned around here that it's just not worth the time to argue with folks who are convinced that these things are true because nothing I say is ever going ot change your mind.
But I will point out something above - you mention the Brad Meltzer episode on TBG, but yet you fail to mention their conclusions:
Scott gets his buddies out of jail and by now their tone has changed significantly. The reality of being “stuffed and cuffed” as Buddy puts it, hit home hard and the spit has clearly hit the fan. Buddy goes on to say that the only way he would ever go into the Bohemian Grove now is as an invited guest and he supposes that the invitation probably isn’t coming any time soon. Mac summed it up succinctly by saying, “being in jail sucks”. In talking about their adventure the next day, Buddy compared himself to Thoreau saying that he also pushed boundaries and broke rules in the interest of learning more about our society. OK Buddy. During the wrap up session at the end of the show attitudes have changed dramatically and have become decidedly more practical. Mac says that the more she has thought about it, the less she is bothered by the Grove. “After all, it is their property and they are allowed to do what they want with it.” Scott strikes the nail on the head by saying, “there is nothing nefarious going on here, it is just of bunch of businessmen in a men’s club”. In the final scene of the show, with spooky music playing in the background, Meltzer says he begs to differ with his colleague’s conclusion. What gets under his skin is that fact that in this country, some people are getting together in secret and getting to have more say than others. I hope he is not just now realizing this in his 40’s. This is just the way it has always been.
Will I watch season two of Decoded? Sure, it has potential.
So again we're left with folks getting arrested for coming onto private property (yeah, that only happens at TBG, right?), some spooky rituals that seem to freak folks out (not sure why), and a private meeting of wealthy and influential people talking about stuff (which happens pretty much everywhere).
Oh, and here's another guy who has been there just like I have: http://blog.sfgate.c...y-brad-meltzer/
If you're so interested in going there and checking it out, I'd suggest you get some tickets to this: http://www.monterioshow.org/show.php
One last point - if Jimmy Buffett is involved, then perhaps the NWO/Illuminati/Freemasons, etc. probably ain't so bad.
