#3327726 recent study shows that partisan politics has overtaken race as society's...

Posted by P.I.A on 20 April 2015 - 01:32 PM

I would never argue that economics (of the rich, by the rich and for the rich) is not a driving force behind most wars.

 

The "War Between the States" is certainly no different in that respect. 

 

The South had done a pretty effective job in DC protecting their "Peculiar Institution"  while expanding it westward in the decades prior to the war. 

 

Of course there were multiple reasons leading to the eventual conflict, but there has been a lot of revisionism in the last few decades that defies reality when it comes to the prime cause of the conflict. 

 

Don't take my word for it.  Here is the Confederacy's own Vice President, Alexander Stephens, addressing the subject on March 21, 1861 in Athens Georgia in what is now known as the "Cornerstone Speech":

Excellently written and sourced, sir.

#2977457 Police Officer asks driver for Drivers License, shoots driver when he reaches...

Posted by P.I.A on 25 September 2014 - 10:03 AM

In my training, and since all police departments seem to have my training now, how did this guy go from pulling the guy over to pulling his gun?!?! There is such thing as escalation of force. verbal commands, then soft controls, then hard controls, then non-lethal, THEN lethal force. This guy said fug it, and jumped to putting holes into a random pullover. He also fired I think 5 shots. Why in Gods name would you be dumping multiple rounds into a civilian filled gas station? Im glad this joker got the boot. 




#2868389 What US military is developing now?

Posted by P.I.A on 28 July 2014 - 07:42 PM

Instead of spending billions of dollars on stupid crap, how about we develop a boot that wont fall apart after 6 months of use. Or uniforms that dont disintigrate in the wash and arent completely useless in the Camoflage department.

#2764737 Coming home soon, Need some new places to go! ADVENTURE!

Posted by P.I.A on 07 May 2014 - 09:17 AM

Whats up huddle? Its been a while. Ill be leaving this hell hole in a few months and have had a HUGE feeling of wanderlust. So I will ask two questions:

1. where can I go locally (North Carolina)? Where are some of your secret places/ hole-in-the walls/ under travelled state parks?

2. Where can I visit nationally that some of you would recommend?

 

Im taking a road trip with three of my bros. We are for sure visiting Colorado and Washington State. We would like to hit up Rocky Mount Natl. Park. and Black Sand Beach, WA. I would love any travel hints/ cool stories/ and or super cool travel destinations you all might have! 

 

Also, we are camping at both set locations!!! woooo.

#2658020 Was reading PhillyB's thread about his decayed teeth.....

Problem with that is the fact I have a great memory and remember your story:

http://www.carolinah...l/#entry2467193


Gee, doesn't sound like you're happier? For the record, I can't remember the last time I broke something out of anger or felt rage, but hey, good try! Stay safe!

Hey man, Im proud of you for looking up my story! 

 

Now that im done puking:

1. youve never had my kind of stress before in your life. If you consider your weak attempts at crossfit and some vegan diet to be stressful, then congratulations, youre whats wrong with America. 

2. You dont have the responsibility I have. You've bragged about how your dad helped you get started with your buisness charades. Im in charge of human lives. 

3. annnnnd your weak attempts at trying to dig at me and others only validate the opinion that youre a pompous, proud, malcontent who only cares about what others think about you because you never had anyone dig the silver spoon out of your ass. 

Now, I suggest you read my post you so thoughtfully dug up. Why? because I want you to understand how it feels to be in charge of someones life. the stress, the anger, the Shiz you have to go through when in charge of something as meaningful as a human life. How it feels to be responsible when poo goes wrong and people die. This past week, I had three of my friends from my company get blown up by a VBIED. I want you to remember those men and women when you come onto this board and flaunt your wealth. Because thats the stress and anger and rage and emotion I and others on this board have expierenced.

 

Have a good day.

Took Fiz's advice about doing deadlifts strapped and got some chalk from a guy that I did deadlifts with on Wednesday...

 

Was able to easily get 405x4 and 455x2 unstrapped with chalk... that chalk is the bomb...  and that was a really good point about being able to simply drop the weight if you get in trouble... something you can't do if strapped up.

Ill catch you soon! Youre a beast!

Whats up all? Its been stupid at work so my posting has gone down the drain. I was able to compete in a camp wide powerlifting comp. this past week. I competed in the 191-202 class at 195 There was some stiff competition to say the least. 

My number were:

Back squat- 445

Bench- 325

Deadlift- 415

total-1185 : #1 in my class!!! there some great benchers here, but no one really squats. I think thats what enabled me to take #1. 

 

woooooooooooo
