    Current Scandals in Bush Administration

    Hello everyone. I’m dropping a thread here just to update you on the current scandals in the Bush Administration.

    1. Bush is funding Al Qaeda. …The U.S. has been “pumping money, a great deal of money, without congressional authority, without any congressional oversight” for covert operations in the Middle East where it wants to “stop the Shiite spread or the Shiite influence.” Hersh says these funds have ended up in the hands of “three Sunni jihadist groups” who are “connected to al Qaeda” but “want to take on Hezbollah.” http://thinkprogress.org/2007/02/25/hersh-qaeda

    2. Walter Reed Hospital, the crown jewel of US military hospitals for rehabbing wounded soldiers back from Iraq, has become a substandard shithole thirdworld clinic under the Bush Administration. "But problems at Walter Reed are just the tip of the iceberg. When these same veterans leave Walter Reed and return to their local clinics and hospitals, they will be entering the chronically underfunded and understaffed Veterans Affairs system -- where these very same veterans will again face the long wait times, aging facilities, and inadequate staffing….Tell me that doesn't impact the morale of our people on the front lines." http://www.military.com/opinion/0,15202,126557,00.html?wh=news

    3. Bush is cutting funding for Veterans’ Health Care at the same time he claims to support the troops. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17117430/“Either the administration is willingly proposing massive cuts in VA health care,” said Rep. Chet Edwards of Texas, chairman of the panel overseeing the VA’s budget. “Or its promise of a balanced budget by 2012 is based on completely unrealistic assumptions.”

    The evil this administration does is amazing; All in the name of privatization, crony capitalism, and malevolent incompetence.

    Your political workout is admirable, even if it's in the wrong forum.

    I, however, would never do such a thing.

    I thought this was a funny name for a journal.

    I was waiting to see some crazy parallel or connection.

    Your diet will set you free.

    I hate exercise, I love training.

    In other news, Decker's 1 RP max on flat bench is like 450 LB's.

    Only when angered by something Bush did.

    After about 4 months of doing almost no lifting and diet, I start again.

    I'm going to run with this journal

    FBP 135 x 10 x 2
    225 x 10 x 2
    295 x 6
    295 x 8
    315 x 2

    That's alot better than I thought I could do. But I feel it today.

    Hammer Curl
    55 x 8 x 2
    60 x 8

    I pushed myself but I have a ways to go.

    FBP = Flat bench press.

    Nice. It's about damn time!

    You haven't worked out for 4 months and your bench still destroys my own.

    When I quit lifting those months ago I was 222 @ 6" (I thought I was taller but the doctor told me differently at my last exam). Last week I took some before photos which I will likely post.

    My old w/o was:
    DBP 135 x 10 x 2
    225 x 10
    295 x 10
    340 x 5
    375 x 2
    IBP
    245 x 8
    255 x ?
    CGBP (ez curl narrow grip) I forgot
    Hammers
    60 x 8
    65 x 8
    70 x 6
    ___
    Leg day
    squats
    245 x 20x 2
    Bent over row
    135 x 10
    155 x 8-10
    165 x 8
    Cable Pull downs wide grip (I forgot)

    I will probably do a schedule similar to this only with sumo deadlifts added.

    I plan to w/o 4x week with cardio 1-2x/week

    I've been doing this on and off for almost 25 years and you just started.

    I follow your journal, and your success has really inspired me to get back on the horse and give it a go. Especially re diet and cardio.

    So I thank you for that.

    You know, if you'd actually answer the phone when I call, you'd get even more encouragement.

    What are you plans for back work?

    I know and I do apologize for that. Work has been busy and I honestly have not been able to do much else. I got messages and emails backing up so I still have to catch up. March 15th is my liberation day target.

    For backwork, I want to do sumo deadlifts and yates style rowing. I had a bad episode with bentover rowing and I probably won't do that exercise again.

    I'm still fleshing out the details. Usually I figure out what I'm going to do when I go downstairs to lift.

    I'm always open to suggestions.

    You should try the pull-up device that I purchased. It's not expensive, it doesn't damage the door, and easily supports my 225 body weight. You could also buy a t-handle that slips over your Olympic barbell so that you can do rows. The pull-up device retails for about $65 and the T-handle retails for about $50 (I think; it's been a while).

    Yes, I remember we did discuss this.

    I might rig something up on my house's I-beam for pullups and if it's a go, I'll get something more sophisticated.
