No, they pulled them out of CLASS. Just a quick internet search will reveal this protest has been going on for days and students have been there many of the days.

Actually, it is pretty clear that many students had no idea why they were there. The logical conclusion is that their teachers were not making this a civics experience, if they were we can assume they would have provided relevant information to their students.

And it is clear that they were missing SCHOOL, not XBOX.

Oh, I totally forgot, regarding the doctor's writing excuses for the union protesters, it makes me sick.

If you want to be politically active, it should be on YOUR time, not the taxpayers and your student's time.

I attended a Tea Party rally on my LUNCH BREAK and took some VACATION TIME so I could stay longer.

And the Tea Party rally I attended didn't look like this.

And we didn't need DNC Organizing for America to bus people to the rally to make the turnout appear bigger.

Having to grow up and actually pay the bills rather than just creating debt to fund them is a harsh reality. What is going on in Wisconsin is just the beginning and in actual dollars is a miniscule amount of what needs to be done in this country. Things are going to get real over the next year and a half and I fear that many of our countrymen donít have the will or the backbone to survive it.

Whoops, I guess I am deloading all wrong, ha, ha.

Actually, one of the neat things about doing 2-a-days is when you deload you can still workout just as hard but just reduce 1 workout and there you go, 50% reduction in volume.

------

Deload week continues

311 days to get freaky

I actually pushed this workout heavier and harder than last week. I decided my deload for legs will be taking the week off from deadlifts as I really felt taxed last week after doing my deadlifts. So, I pushed squats hard since that is my only lower body work this week (well, I will still occlude on Saturday with extensions and curls).

Lunch

Squat
235x5, 2 sets
240x5, 2 sets
245x5, 2 sets
250x5, 2 sets
200x8
180x12

Suspended Bridge Leg Curl
BWx12, 12, 12

In other news...

Found this at the Washington Times

The big issue in Wisconsin today is whether or not public sector workers should have collective bargaining rights. In an Aug. 16, 1937 letter to Luther Steward, the president of the National Federation of Public Employees, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt had something to say about that:

[M]eticulous attention should be paid to the special relationships and obligations of public servants to the public itself and to the Government.

All Government employees should realize that the process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service. It has its distinct and insurmountable limitations when applied to public personnel management. The very nature and purposes of Government make it impossible for administrative officials to represent fully or to bind the employer in mutual discussions with Government employee organizations. The employer is the whole people, who speak by means of laws enacted by their representatives in Congress. Accordingly, administrative officials and employees alike are governed and guided, and in many instances restricted, by laws which establish policies, procedures, or rules in personnel matters.


Roosevelt would have absolutely rejected the mass demonstrations aimed at blocking access or regress from the state's legislative building, and at keeping children out of school:

Particularly, I want to emphasize my conviction that militant tactics have no place in the functions of any organization of government employees. Upon employees in the Federal service rests the obligation to serve the whole people, whose interests and welfare require orderliness and continuity in the conduct of Government activities. This obligation is paramount. Since their own services have to do with the functioning of the Government, a strike of pubic employees manifests nothing less than an intent on their part to prevent or obstruct the operations of Government until their demands are satisfied. Such action, looking toward the paralysis of Government by those who have sworn to support it, is unthinkable and intolerable.

Yet now we have a president of the United States using his political organization, Organizing For America, to encourage militant tactics that would obstruct the operations of a SOVEREIGN state government, in order to keep collective bargaining of the sort that the great liberal icon and friend of unions, FDR, said has "distinct and insurmountable limitations."

It appears as if FDR would say that President Obama is wrong on substance, and dangerously out of line with regard to tactics.

----

And from Heritage:

The founders of the labor movement viewed unions as a vehicle to get workers more of the profits they help create. Government workers, however, don’t generate profits. They merely negotiate for more tax money. When government unions strike, they strike against taxpayers. FDR considered this “unthinkable and intolerable.”

310 days to increase the size of me

Deload week continues...

------

AM

Occluded Dog Walk - this was brutal today

I wrapped fairly tight and it felt like I was doing high rep squats or running a 400m dash, or some weird combination, lol.

I kept going because I know 2 things, previous winners of the contest I plan on entering had good legs

Bob Brill - 2010 winner



David Turk - 2009 winner



http://bodyspace.bodybuilding.com/ph.../s/Turkish1530

And I kept going because I also know many of the contestants did not have good legs, this will separate the men from the boys

Lunch

Like Squats yesterday, I pushed this back workout heavier than I normally would because of my decreased volume this week.

Chin up
BW+30x5
BW+32.5x5
BW+35x5
BW+37.5x5
BW+40x5
BW+42.5x5

If you click on the link, you will see a picture of some strongman training I got to do last night with various sized atlas stones, as you can see, some were quite small, but I had to put them at different heights which increased the difficulty

Strongman Training

Good stuff I tried some strongman training the other night but stopped after my daughter smashed one of the stones over my head.
