Source: “What police face during protests" accuses protests of being more dangerous for the police than the protesters.
Peaceful protesters have been tear gassed, shot with rubber bullets, arrested, tackled, hog tied, maced, had guns pointed at them, and so much more. They really wanna try and compare pointing fingers, name calling, and cameras in their faces to everything protesters have faced PLUS the fact that Mike Brown’s killer, Darren Wilson is still free and still on paid administrative leave after 69 days?!?

Notes: after being gone 9 days because of the sicks, squats suffered a bit. I’m gonna put my legs through the ringer and make sure I’m eating right and icing after workouts so I can still try for 200 at year’s end.

Notes: tweaked something in my right glute. The booty hurts ;w; (might be more in my bicep femoris…it’s in that general area)
U CAN DO
GONNA GET SO STRONG
I was planning out my lifts for the next couple months, and I really think I could hit 200 on my squat at year’s end. It’d be a 30-pound PR, but I really think it’s doable.
I’m gonna work hard and go for it.

Notes: 150 was, at the start of this program, my goal max for the year. Now, I max 170 and I’m squatting 150 for reps. Ballin’.
Shit happens yo. Just make sure to get yourself back on track. Dont beat yourself up for slipping up.
I will try to do the thing. Thank you, friend.
food and eating are not a weakness or a punishment! Forgive yourself. You’re not a machine.
I haven’t been making great decisions for about a week now. It’s just discouraging because I haven’t been in the most stable (or buoyant) of moods lately, and this always sort of compounds that.
I’ll try not to dwell on it though, thank you friend.
I made really, really shitty food decisions this weekend that weren’t in line with my weight loss goals or my weightlifting goals.
I should probably go on the Cube or something after smolov is over…my bench press is suddenly lagging way behind my squat and deadlift.
I mean if I plan to pull 225-235 at the end of mag/ort and squat 200 at the end of smolov, my 125 bench will look a little….lacking….
My macros are 100% Pizza.

ISIS bombed by female UAE fighter pilot.
(Article by Erin McClam, 25 SEP 2014. Source.)
The first female fighter pilot for the United Arab Emirates led the mission when that country joined the United States and other allies in airstrikes against ISIS over Syria earlier this week.
Maj. Mariam Al Mansouri graduated flight school in 2007 and was one of the first three to join the Emirati air force when it admitted women. She flew an F-16 Desert Falcon on Monday night.
“Actually, funny story is, the U.S. tanker pilots called in for air refueling and asked for the UAE mission, and when they heard a female voice on the other side, they actually paused for about 20 seconds, radio silence,” he said.
Mansouri, 35, was born in Abu Dhabi and graduated college with a degree in English literature. She told the magazine Deraa Al Watan earlier this year that her love of country and a passion for challenge and competition drew her to aviation.
But she said that she never focused on competing with male pilots: “Competing with oneself,” she told the magazine, “is conducive to continued learning.”
Mansouri served in the Army before enrolling in flight training. She told The National, an English-language Emirati news outlet, in 2008: “A woman’s passion about something will lead her to achieving what she aspires, and that’s why she should pursue her interests.”
“Being in the air force is a responsibility,” she said. “I feel proud, especially that I am part of the first batch. And that encourages me to continue in this field.”
Earlier this year, the Emirati government presented Mansouri the Pride of the Emirates medal for excellence in her field.The Emirates were among five Arab allies that joined the United States in the first round of airstrikes in Syria to beat back ISIS forces. They were the first to confirm their participation.
Otaiba, the ambassador, told MSNBC that it was imperative for moderate Arab and Muslim countries to step up and say: “This is a threat against us.”
He said the fight comes down to: “Do you want a model or a society that allows women to become ministers in government, female fighter pilots, business executives, artists — or do you want a society where, if a woman doesn’t cover up in public, she’s beaten or she’s lashed or she’s raped. I mean this is ultimately what this breaks down to.”
