    You gotta give him the full 700...

     

    He wasn’t fudging by arcing his back, and that’s good. The only thing I question is how much the spotter helped it with him. It couldn’t have been a lot the way he was standing, but could’ve been helping him as much as 40 lbs.

    They should’ve had spotters at both ends at the bar plus the guy in the middle. That way the middle guy could keep his hands off the bar. If it were a real competition, that lift would’ve been disqualified. Amazing at bench.

    You don’t see a lot of big guys fully taking advantage of their body size and frame and developing them to the point where there could be an ugly catastrophic failure.

    Thanks convert. When I am thinking "is this racism?" You are definitely the authority I turn to. 

    You’re always pimping yourself as something much bigger than you are. Like the time you wrote a letter to the editor of your newspaper complaining about the numerous potholes in the streets where you live. When your letter actually got printed in the newspaper, you went around telling everyone that you were a Roads Scholar.

    Trump is not a policy guy.  A party can implement a policy and then that party's voters will hate it when the other guy is in charge. 

    Trump understands better than anyone that politics is 98% culture war.  Everything he sees and does is with that in mind.

    Our nations' leader does everything he can to divide our country into us and them, basically to just hold on to power. It's that simple. 

      

     

    That never happens on the left. 🤪🤪🤪

    Not following why it shouldn't matter on any account public or private, death threats and threats of violence are illegal. Of course they should be tracked down and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    Yeah, but you didn't tell us if they were hate crimes or not. That matters, just ask cappyhamper.

    Thanks convert. When I am thinking "is this racism?" You are definitely the authority I turn to. 

    I know you'll be devastated that the legal definition of racism and 'racial discrimination' has remained the same in this country, and doesn't agree with your 2019 evolving snowflake definiton. You want it include 'thought police' assumptions about how people you don't like, think. And it always assumes the worst case against the people you hate, and do so despite the fact that there isn't any actual evidence of it. It's extremely biased speculation bent into fact however you'd like it to be. And the ultimate irony is that you don't even care about what the people you 'like' are saying in that regard.

    The EEOC under Title VII defines racism, racial discrimination as:

    Race/Color Discrimination. Race discrimination involves treating someone unfavorably because he/she is of a certain race or because of personal characteristics associated with race (such as hair texture, skin color, or certain facial features).

    That is exactly how I defined it. So no, I just referred to the 'authority' that matters in how we do things legally in this country. You can make up any silly snowflake definition you want, and you do.

    There are 2 different Americas.

     

    The one America which decries racism, sexism, believes that immigrants are welcome.

     

    And then there's the other America, the one Trump is speaking to. The one that agrees with him.

     

    The only thing I find surprising is there are still people who fail to grasp this fact. He's not baiting dems, he is saying what he and a large number of Americans believe.  He's too stupid to have any strategy. He's simply speaking to his people.

    Wow, two America’s! Nothing in between or different altogether. I think you fail to grasp the simple concept that in reality, life is a lot more complex than black and white classifications. You also need to understand that disliking someone’s behavior is simply that, and dragging race into it just makes you a sad left winger in the year 2019.

    Yep, totally not racist

    As a president, definitely not the most diplomatic or politically prudent thing to say, but you guys don’t even know what racism is anymore. You’re just as embarrassing as Trump can be. 

    Let us analyze: 

    Racist: Go back to where you came from. The reason? We don’t want people of your race or skin color here. 

    Trump: Go back to where you came from .....if you don’t like it here. The reason? Your consistent BEHAVIOR that makes it perfectly clear that you don’t like this country. 

    A racist doesn’t want you around simply because of your skin color/race. Behavior has absolutely nothing to do with it. Trump’s sentiment is completely different. It’s more of a ‘love it or leave it’ statement, and that has always been based on behavior. During the Vietnam protests, it was coined towards very liberal student protesters that actually hated the US because of the war. 

    Now let’s say each of the 4 had a twin sister that held different beliefs of the US and were more appreciative of America in general. You know Trump would be the first one to tell them that he’s happy to have them here as American patriots and that their twin sister should be learning a lot from you. 

    You guys can’t even differentiate between obnoxious insensitive ranting over real actual racism. Pretty amazing, really.

  8. If they’re going to use a black female, at least use someone like Halle Berry as she already has a history in the franchise, great actress,  incredible looking, And apparently Joe Biden is a Halle fan, as well, per his recent take on it.

    ”I mean, you've got Halle Berry, the first sort of elite level African American actress super-woman available for the role, and it would be a shame not to use her. There aren’t too many actresses that give ol’ Uncle Joe here a woody. I mean, she’s intelligent, bright and clean. How often do you come across that? It’s story-book all the way, man," .

    It's only sexist if you request she be called agent 80085

    It’s definitely sexist if she doesn’t get paid the same as James. But wait, she probably doesn’t have the amount of experience that James has had. 

    Or maybe James had sex change surgery and it is James Bond as a woman. That would make the social liberals so happy they couldn’t see straight.

    I found the misogynist! 

    There are some trigger happy ultra PC’ers on this board that are ridiculously extreme with the ridiculous bogus labels....my God, to even think about questioning someone as hating women just because you object to a long standing icon being thrown out. People are so paranoid about being called a bad name here. There’s a lot on the socially left here that reminds me of being in high school where the most important thing in life is to be popular with whatever your peers are pimping. Pretty sad. 

    What if they announced Nevada was changing from blue to red. There’s nothing wrong with red on the uni’s other other teams, but blue is a deeply held tradition. It doesn’t make you a red misogynist to not want the red. 

    Ian Fleming is going to be pissed off and probably come back to life. Bond is British intelligence, so it should be a male with a British accent. I don’t think a couple of the Bond’s had much of an accent which was also disappointing. 

    The studio is probably counting on the traditional white male to come see Bond movies out of habit, and by making it a black person, it would draw a new kind of demographic. And then making it a black woman would draw in female viewers. There’s no integrity, it’s all about selling out to make a few more bucks. This will bomb badly.

    Thank you.

     

    I've been reading up on the whole post concussion syndrome issue and all the chemical changes and broken pathways and calcium oxalate crystals.....MRI was yesterday and the St Luke's concussion group will get back to me. They have various therapists, neuropsychologists and neurologists. I'll PM you if I'm not happy with how it's being addressed.

     

    I'm in Meridian just outside Boise. I appreciate your thoughtful input. This is frustrating but I gotta do what's going to get me better with minimizing future complications. Like dementia and parkinsons.

    I’ll post more about this later, but head injuries can damage your pituitary and hypothalamus glands which tell all the glands in your body what to do, how much hormones to make and a lot more. If this is not addressed, you will die young!!!

    And the years left of life you have, the severe dysfunction will make you become a depressed, un-social person that’s always feeling terrible with headaches, fibermyalgia and can’t do much physical work because your body doesn’t recover well from it, heart problems, easily have strokes, diabetes, seizures, etc. You’ll be broke with all the constant medical treatment you’ll need to deal with symptoms, but not addressing the real problem. 

    You almost certainly have AGHD (Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency) with a head injury like that. You’ll need to take easy and pain free shots of rGH, and while it ain’t cheap, a dose equivalent to your early 20’s with keep you looking and functioning around 15 or so years below your current age. It’s not a fountain of youth, but it definitely has anti-aging effects down to the cellular level. When I first took it, I had grey strands of hair, but virtually all the grey hair went back to brown. If I stop taking it for a while, it comes back. Some people didn’t believe me until I showed them some hair I pulled out that were half grey and half brown. When it went goes back to brown, there’s a rough little bump on the piece of hair.

    Nowhere did I say that.  What I think is irrelevant.  The only way the EC goes away is if a Constitutional Amendment is passed.  

    Personally I think it’s a waste of time as you’ll never get smaller states to agree to that.  There are other, easier ways to get around it and dilute the power of low population states like Wyoming and Vermont that don’t require amending the Constitution.  The easiest way would be to expand the number of representatives in the house from 435 to say 1,200. That would increase the number of electoral votes from 538 to 1303.  States like Wyoming and Vermont would likely still have 3-4 electoral votes while a State like California would probably g nearly double the electoral votes.  

    Or we could just wait for the pendulum to start to swing in the other way, and the Dems would want the EC back. It kills me why either party doesn’t just come clean state their real agendas. And it would score good points with voters.

    As predicted, you tried to claim victory. You're very Trumpian in your behavior, it's all about "winning" to you. There's no honest exchanges, only you looking for ways to try and "own" people.To quote the man you're apparently using as a role model... "sad".

    Dude, don’t insult Trump like that. There are many things he really does honestly care about. He was mentally and sometimes physically abused by his father growing up.  Nothing Trump ever did was good enough to get his dad’s blessing. So he’s really into issues where kids are suffering because of abusive parents, as an example.

    I like her because I believe her to be honest and she’s not interventionist as she understands the cost of war.  Although I do have some serious policy differences with her on things but I could vote for her anyway, if she became the Dem nominee, despite those disagreements.  I think she would enter negotiations for her policy priorities in good faith and work to find common ground solutions. 

    I didn’t think there were any odds she could be the nominee. Since she’s so in love with Assad, and he seems to really like her, maybe she’d have better chances taking a high office in Syria. 

    I still don’t know why some of you guys think she has all this integrity and character. I’m not saying she doesn’t have any, but for God’s sake, she’s telling you what you want to hear.

    Priests abused the trust of their parishioners. And the Catholic Church is rightfully paying the consequences. 

    The federal government pays state and local government to abuse children both directly and indirectly. Yet somehow none of the three ever seem to lose business.

    I can tell you how to get the church out of your family's life. Can you tell me how to get the government out of mine?

    I was feeling a bit down this morning, and then I read your post and it got me thinking more positive and uplifted my spirits! Thanks.

    Are you in favor of the US adopting a policy of compulsory voting.

    Are you like 8 years old and haven’t gotten to your civics course yet? Holy shit. Why does it have to be me to break the news to you that your assumptions of how civics work is wrong. 

    First of all, it’s your civic duty to become knowledgeable about all the issues on a ballot, and it’s also your civic duty to vote once you’ve learned the issues. Compulsory voting is stupid because if you’re forcing people to vote that don’t want to spend the time and hassle of doing so, they’re obviously not going to spend any time on their own learning about the issues they’ll be voting on. And that’s even more 

    Just like in Vietnam, the draft forced kids over there to fight when they didn’t want to be there.  But that didn’t mean that they could get the kids to fight hard or work hard to become good soldiers once they got there.

    I'm not sure our founding fathers should be the first place we go when discussing who should vote and why they should vote. Just sayin'

    Come to think of it, I can’t think of any accurate or sane statement on anything you’ve said lately. I normally don’t pay attention to you, but when I do, you’re pretty much wrong all the time. Your takes on things can be so bizarre.

    But I did vote.  Do you not ever skip anything on your ballot?

    We’re talking about the presidency, and I specifically said ‘voting for president’. I don’t know why you’re playing games with this. It’s a very simple concept.

    Yep

    Not voting is a failure of your civic duty as outlined by our FF’s to keep the democracy of America healthy and strong. According to the FF’s, by not voting, you’re not meeting your civic duty to support this country. Of course, that also means informed voting.
