My old man flew B-52 and did a year and ahalf flying out of Elmendorf in Alaska practices for the grand tour of Russian to make it glow. They'd always fly into Russian Airspace and get a friendly visit from the shitbags reminding them where they were and to please leave.

He's willing to die over some fucking cattle grazing in areas that he doesn't own....he deserves to get some Ruby Ridge justice. 


You're a fucking retard. They killed women and kids over bullshit. The only justice at Ruby ridge would have been if they beheaded Janet Reno on live TV.....fucking douche.

This guy is not slinging rock or crossing the border..he has cattle that graze on land that the fucking EPA wants to hold for friggen turtles. Fuck the turtles.....but ok fine....move his cattle...don't deploy Velcro Commandoes with Remington 700's  to scare the shit out of people.

Do you think the government is infallible...because that's what your last post basically says. This guy may be wrong...but if the Gov comes in guns blazing they have abdicated their responsibility under the Constitution. We don't have guns in this country to hunt...we have guns to ensure that the gov does not get out of hand. They got out of hand at Ruby Ridge and Waco. As far as voting goes..yeah every state that has opposed gay marriage did so with a vote...and then the douchbag judges change the law. The EPA can do whatever the fuck it wants.

workplaces generally just test for recreational drugs, not anabolics

may be stricter in the airforce but I really doubt it.

According to the reg I would have to specifically say Maxx is juicing and we're testing him for that. The shit either goes to Rhode Island or the Olympic training center in Colorado and its fairly expensive. The random tests don't test for that shit. He was an Officer as I recall and got out as a Captain. They'll hammer an Officer a hell of a lot more for popping positive then they will an enlisted guy so he made have not taken the risk. I have 3 years until retirement and while I don't take anything now, have no problem with it when I get out.

The administration collapse is beginning...


WASHINGTON — Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary, is resigning, ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act.

Mr. Obama accepted Ms. Sebelius’s resignation this week, and on Friday morning he will nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace her, officials said.

The departure comes as the Obama administration tries to move beyond its early stumbles in carrying out the law, persuade a still-skeptical public of its lasting benefits, and help Democratic incumbents, who face blistering attack ads after supporting the legislation, survive the midterm elections this fall.

Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy.

Even last week, as Mr. Obama triumphantly announced that enrollments in the exchanges had exceeded seven million, she did not appear next to him for the news conference in the Rose Garden.

The president is hoping that Ms. Burwell, 48, a Harvard- and Oxford-educated West Virginia native with a background in economic policy, will bring an intense focus and management acumen to the department. The budget office, which she has overseen since April of last year, is deeply involved in developing and carrying out health care policy.

“The president wants to make sure we have a proven manager and relentless implementer in the job over there, which is why he is going to nominate Sylvia,” said Denis R. McDonough, the White House chief of staff.

Last month, Ms. Sebelius approached Mr. Obama and began a series of conversations about her future, Mr. McDonough said. The secretary told the president that the March 31 deadline for sign-ups under the health care law — and rising enrollment numbers — provided an opportunity for change, and that he would be best served by someone who was not the target of so much political ire, Mr. McDonough said.

“What was clear is that she thought that it was time to transition the leadership to somebody else,” he said. “She’s made clear in other comments publicly that she recognizes that she takes a lot of the incoming. She does hope — all of us hope — that we can get beyond the partisan sniping.”

The resignation is a low point in what had been a remarkable career for Ms. Sebelius, who as governor of Kansas was named by Time magazine as one of the five best governors in the country and was even mentioned as a possible running mate for Mr. Obama in 2008. The two had bonded when Ms. Sebelius endorsed his presidential bid early in 2008, becoming one of the highest-profile Democratic women to back him over Hillary Rodham Clinton, and helping him deliver a big win in the Kansas caucus.

White House officials were quick to point out the many successes during Ms. Sebelius’s tenure: the end to pre-existing conditions as a bar to insurance, the ability for young people to stay on their parents’ insurance, and the reduction in the growth of health care costs. In addition, Ms. Sebelius helped push through mental health parity in insurance plans and worked with the Department of Education to promote early childhood education.

Ms. Sebelius said in an interview Thursday that she always knew that she would not “be here to turn out the lights in 2017.”

“My balance has always been, when do you make that decision?” she added.

The president had been under pressure for months to fire Ms. Sebelius. But he had resisted, in part because he did not want the Department of Health and Human Services to undergo more upheaval amid all the problems plaguing HealthCare.gov, and in part because of his general reluctance to publicly rebuke top officials.

In November, Mr. Obama defended the secretary, saying in an interview with NBC News that she “doesn’t write code; yeah, she wasn’t our I.T. person.” As recently as last week, Jay Carney, the White House press secretary, rejected any suggestion that Ms. Sebelius would be fired.

Mr. McDonough on Thursday praised Ms. Sebelius as “a fierce advocate,” and said she had been “tenacious in her belief” in the president’s health care law. “She’s fearless in her defense of this idea at the heart of the Affordable Care Act,” he said. “The president has commented to me countless times how much he admires that.”

But the Affordable Care Act faces a range of obstacles, political and otherwise, in the months ahead, and Mr. Obama is hoping that Ms. Burwell can smoothly steer the department and bring stability to its operations. In addition to the midterm elections, in which the health care law is the target of a flood of negative ads, the administration is grappling with policy questions: how it will levy the penalty on individuals who lack insurance, how much premiums will increase in the coming year, and how ultimately to administer the requirement that employers provide insurance.

Ms. Sebelius was not Mr. Obama’s first choice to lead the department; he wanted former Senator Tom Daschle in the job, but Mr. Daschle withdrew after acknowledging that he had underpaid his taxes for several years. She was hailed as a gifted political leader in Kansas who could work with legislators of both parties, but those skills were less evident in Washington, and she became a more distant figure within the administration.

In addition to the political battles over the passage and carrying out of the Affordable Care Act, she clashed with conservatives over contraception, and faced frequent calls for her political head by Republicans after the health care website failed to function properly last year.

In hearings on Capitol Hill, Ms. Sebelius sometimes grew rattled under grillings by lawmakers. In one hearing at the end of October, Ms. Sebelius declared that HealthCare.gov “has never crashed.”

“It is functional,” she added, “but at a very slow speed and very low reliability, and has continued to function.”

She made that statement even as large screens in the hearing room showed a live shot of the website with a page that said: “The system is down at the moment. We are experiencing technical difficulties and hope to have them resolved soon.”

An appearance on “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” last October went even worse. Mr. Stewart challenged her to “sign up for Obamacare” before he could download every movie ever made. “We’ll see which happens first,” he joked. She struggled to defend the website and the health care law.

The television appearance prompted headlines like “Kathleen Sebelius’s Daily Show Disaster” and accusations from Republicans that she was being misleading. Democrats squirmed at her stiff and halting performance, which did little to inspire confidence in the website’s performance — or her own.

But Ms. Sebelius has not been at the center of public attention in recent weeks. After the poor public performances, her national television exposure has been limited, but she has continued to make small appearances and has been active on Twitter to press for people to sign up for insurance. She submitted to another grilling before a Senate committee Thursday and later acknowledged that the idea of not doing “a hearing every three weeks sounds pretty good to me.”

The president’s choice of Ms. Burwell to lead the Department of Health and Human Services places a relative outsider at the helm of one of the government’s largest bureaucracies. Ms. Burwell has led the president’s budget office since taking over for Jacob J. Lew, who is now the Treasury secretary.

Ms. Sebelius said she hoped — but did not expect — that her departure would represent the beginning of a more cooperative period in Washington to make health care better.

“If I could take something along with me,” she said, it would be “all the animosity. If that could just leave with me, and we could get to a new chapter, that would be terrific.”


I hope so...before the country does.

He was Air Force for awhile and was drug tested enough that I'm sure he was natural for awhile. We had 45 lifters for a gym meet. I think crossfit has helped the sport. There are a lot more raw lifters around and a lot of folks who don't look like tubs of lard.

I just don't understand why everything is so "hazy"  how come is brad virtually unknown in the strength world?

I was reading about how Ed Coan challenged greg kovacs one time, who was claiming these ridiculous poundages who people swore were legit. But he always failed to meet up with Ed. Grin

show me  Brad on the platform benching 600 pounds in competition..or up against a guy like sam byrd. .until then I don't believe it. 

He's in Cali..Mark Bell and the rest would be all over this guy to come up and train..that shredded..he be very marketable. Byrd would beat him to death with one of his fake plates.

I think the Gov took it in the 30's. If 2-3 dudes with weapons holstered, like many the local police show up with the BLM dudes and cattle trucks....nothing much will happen. A 200 man Infantry company supported by sniper teams, helicopters and armored vehicles...yeah this guy is gonna go a little nuts. He appears to have a big family.

Bundy has vowed to do whatever it takes to protect his property, and his 14 children and hundreds of supporters stand behind him. Dave Bundy, his son, was arrested on Sunday afternoon while attempting to film the contract cowboys at work, and cited for failing to disperse and resisting arrest.

Thus far, 234 cows have been impounded as the Bureau of Land Management has temporarily closed the public recreation area. Bundy’s plea to the Clark County Sheriff to intervene was stymied as the action fell under federal jurisdiction.

While the last rancher in southern Nevada argues “it’s a freedom issue,” federal officials are executing the “no trespassing” court mandate.

Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval weighed in with a statement Tuesday scolding the Bureau of Land Management:

“Due to the roundup by the BLM, my office has received numerous complaints of BLM misconduct, road closures and other disturbances. I have recently met with state legislators, county officials and concerned citizens to listen to their concerns. I have expressed those concerns directly to the BLM,” Sandoval said.

“Most disturbing to me is the BLM’s establishment of a ‘First Amendment Area’ that tramples upon Nevadans’ fundamental rights under the U.S. Constitution. To that end, I have advised the BLM that such conduct is offensive to me and countless others and that the ‘First Amendment Area’ should be dismantled immediately. No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans. The BLM needs to reconsider its approach to this matter and act accordingly.”

Whether violence and bloodshed can be avoided remains to be seen.

“It’s high time for the BLM to do its job and give the [endangered desert] tortoises and the Gold Butte area the protection they need and are legally entitled to,” senior Center for Biological Diversity scientist Rob Mrowka told the Mesquite Local News. “As the tortoises emerge from their winter sleep, they are finding their much-needed food consumed by cattle.”


I have raised cattle on that land, which is public land for the people of Clark County, all my life. Why I raise cattle there and why I can raise cattle there is because I have preemptive rights,” he asserted, explaining to TheBlaze that this includes the right to forage, too.

Furthermore, Bundy has argued that it is the United States trespassing on Clark County, Nev., land, not he, and that he is a better steward of the land. He points out that the manure from his cows fertilizes the soil, that he’s built water sources for wildlife, and that his cattle prevent the vegetation from growing overly dense and creating a fire hazard.

The penalty for grazing cattle on Fed land is a 7.62 bullet to the head. Round up his cattle...dump them in his front lawn...ignore the 'range war" shit and that's the end of it. OR we can go the Obama out of control route and kill his family "see ruby ridge' and make it a goddam rally cry for every ultra far right winger to the folks on Prison planet.

The gov has the right to say move your shit.  Once that didn't happen, they can fine him etc. I guess they can grab the cattle...but they should dump them on his land. The land grab to save some fucking turtles is ridiculous. Nobody got to vote on that 240....the EPA is way out of control. I suspect if a vote was held, they weren't getting any or all of the acreage to keep the turtles. Once sniper teams were deployed the gov crossed the line. While some of the guys might sympathize with the farmer..somebody there is willing to shoot his entire family over a turtle. Make no mistake getbig...where I ordered to kill unarmed US civilians I would execute the official so ordering that and turn my men and equipment over to Gov Perry or whoever was opposing Obama and his bullshit. The guy is dangerous.
