“You don’t have to be positive all of the time, having feelings doesn’t make you a negative person”…

62533635_2191133010941201_7509656304516857856_n.png

Over the years of my life, people always complained of the way I am especially online. People often complained about my online ranting. When I have certain opinions on things and if I disagreed with others, people would be unhappy with that. I’ve always been accused of being a negative person… always having an attitude and being argumentative with people.

Maybe all that is true, admittedly but ya know what? There is nothing wrong with that. It’s all about being human and being true to yourself. That’s how I’ve always been really. I’m a human being with real feelings and I was never afraid to express it all.

People always expect me to be positive 24/7 and they want me to be positive all the time but they seem to get disappointed when I’m not positive all the time. That’s okay ’cause life would be boring as fuck if I was positive 24/7.

I’m allowed to have differences of opinion and I’m allowed to disagree with people. I’ve always been about being honest with myself but nope, I’ve always been the big bad Brock like how people treated me online.

I’ve been called an internet troll and people thought I was posting things for “shock factor” as a way to get a reaction out of things. Nope. It’s just me being real. If something’s on my mind, I’m gonna say it. I try to be positive most of the time but I speak for myself, ya know?

I’ve always been honest and real but unfortunately, that’s not gonna make everybody happy. People don’t get it yet that I’m a human being with real feelings but that’s okay. I’m not changing for anyone and you shouldn’t either. Nothing wrong with being yourself. If you’re pissing people off then you must be doing something right.

Happy 73rd birthday, President Trump…

So President Trump turns 73 today. I was one of those millions of Americans who helped voted him in. It wasn’t the Russians that interfered with the elections to help him. The election was fair and square. Trump won by the American people voting him in even though it was a rigged election by the Democrats.

I don’t regret my Trump vote at all as I will proudly vote for him again in 2020.

Trump is not gonna get impeached. He’s not going to prison and he’s not going to lose 2020 either. An easy re-election is coming. The Trump base is getting bigger and bigger and we’ll prove it once again in 2020.

Yes, the Trump haters are getting aggressive and getting even more childish which is amazing to see really, but I’m never going to abandon Trump just because they want me to. I’m gonna stick to my guns and support him no matter what the haters say.

It is funny, though… that each time lefties bash Trump in social media like FB/twitter… all they do is call him nasty names but they can never come up with examples of what makes him a bad guy. It’s like… all I see lefties is calling him all kinds of different names like racist, xenophobic, sexist, traitor, sexual predator, homophobic and they even went as far as calling him a pedophile. Lefties never cease to amaze me. They call him all that garbage and they can’t come up with examples or even proof like I said. It’s pathetic.

When it comes to me hating on Obama, I always come up with examples and specifics. It’s easy to explain why we hate Obama but lefties can never think of a single reason to hate Trump.

Lefties think everyone in Trump’s administration is a bad person… and that’s even crazier. The thing is that lefties despises people who are conservative and Republican… that’s why they do what they do, ya know? They live in this delusional world that “the right” are evil people.

The world of politics is pretty crazy right now and it’s getting even crazier as 2020 elections approaches. I’m so glad I don’t see myself as a liberal. People don’t like me being “conservative” but that’s tough. I would rather be a conservative than be a liberal who’s always angry and seems unhappy all of the time. I see myself as a happy and positive person and lefties aren’t that at all.

I am proud to be a die-hard Trump supporter ’cause we really needed him. I don’t agree with everything Trump says and does but I’m not gonna hate on him like a child. He really was the best thing for the country and anybody who doesn’t think so is brainwashed by the liberal media or better known as “Fake News”. There was no way I was gonna vote for Hillary. Couldn’t do it. I won’t vote for Biden or Bernie either. Trump’s the best president we’ve had since Reagan. I’m really impressed by Trump and can’t wait to hit the voting booth again in 2020.

Happy birthday, President Trump and thanks for all you do!

“Ironman” powerlifting meet confirmed for Albany Strength on Aug. 30th… I’m definitely competing for this…

So another powerlifting meet at Albany Strength has been confirmed for Friday evening, August 30th. I can’t wait and pretty stoked. I’m definitely competing for this one no matter what.

My goals for this meet is that I want to smash a 300 lb. deadlift or over and I hope to smash a 200 lb. bench for this one. I have plenty of time for me to reach both goals and I believe I can achieve ’em. Just gotta stay consistent with my strength training for bench and deadlift week after week and I will.

This time I won’t stop the heavy lifting too early before a powerlifting meet. It’s more appropriate to stop the heavy lifting 1 week out before a meet.

If I don’t make it to a 200 lb. bench in time before this meet and I could only get 170 – 190 lbs., I’ll take it. I’m hoping to get 200 lb. bench in time. I’m doing all I can to get there. So far, my best bench as my 1 rep max is 160 lbs. so I’m almost there to the big 200 lbs. Since I just did a 150 lb. bench for a triple last week, I would think my estimated pr. could be about 165 or 170 lb.

I’m planning to max out again in a few weeks so I can see what my best deadlift and bench are for this meet. That way I can decide what my openers and 2nd attempts will be.

Once again, I want to keep getting better and better at every powerlifting meet I do. I want my numbers to keep going up and up and up and up. That’s how you want to do powerlifting, ya know? You don’t want your numbers staying the same or going down ’cause that’s bad. You want to keep getting better every time so you got to be careful and train smart. I am trying and I’m going to kill it at this next meet, trust me. Hoping to make it to 2nd or 1st place in my weight class if I’m lucky enough and I’m gonna do all I can.

And yes, I will film plenty of video footage and will make another videoblog for “My Story – Part 3”. Now I have a new Ipod Touch with an HD camera on it, there will be much improved video footage coming.

I’m gonna work real hard for this meet all summer. As always, last thing I want to do is disappoint the spectators and the judges. I’m gonna try to get 3 white lights on everything this time. At the last powerlifting meet there, I only missed one lift and won’t do that again. If I want to smash a 300 lb. deadlift or over successfully, I need to make my first two attempts much lighter to help save some in the tank. That’s the trick.

Here we go, New York State is trying to normalize prostitution…

Scary shit. Since douchebag Cuomo is our governor, I wouldn’t be surprised that he’ll be all for this and he signs this to law if the bill gets to his desk. The two female senators who introduced this bill are both you guess it ***cough*** Democrats ***cough***. Prostitutes belong in jail, not out on the streets selling their bodies. We don’t need this in New York.

If this becomes legal in New York State, I can see other states following suit and will try to do the same thing… legalize prostitution all over America.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/new-york-prostitution-legalization-sex-work-decriminalization/?fbclid=IwAR3o-CWyCSoV93jN9hEePFWw5sCzlY7B-SF7u63oxr_rG58qFgfjAOBFcbk

Ya see, first lefties rammed homosexuality and gay marriage down our throats. Now they were successful at legalizing gay marriage in America that will lead to crazy things such as legalizing prostitution and things like that.

Why do those two NY Democratic female senators wanna legalize prostitution in NY? They want these hookers to be protected from street violence and stop them from getting arrested. These nutjobs actually think “sex work is like a normal job”. Really?

Um, no you dingbats. “Sex work” isn’t a job… it’s a crime. They should be thrown in jail and not out in the streets selling their bodies. I see men in social media getting excited for this and that’s even scarier. Why is prostitution illegal in America? Well, for a lot of reasons… diseases for starters, drugs is another reason, could lead to underage sex, could lead to domestic violence, it helps pimps, less protection for women, etc. I can go on and on.

If these NY Senators think legalizing prostitution will help “protect” these women, they are delusional. I think they want to legalize “prostitution” ’cause I think they were prostitutes at some point in their life… that wouldn’t surprise me at all.

What I’m seeing in liberal New York is getting scarier and scarier. New York is still a “left-wing” state and it’s pissing me off. I can’t blame more people for moving out of this state.  Good for them, really.

Bad gym etiquette… totally out of control and getting much worse???

Yeah, commercial gyms are all over America now. Chances are, you probably have a public gym in your local town. Commercial gyms are very popular and mainstream in America. Yeah, a lot of people go to them but at the same time, I’m noticing that local gyms all over the place are slowing down. Gyms have a lot of members. There are some members of gyms that work out week after week and there are those who go to a gym for a while and then give it up later.

I’ve been going to the gym for over 10 years now so I’ve seen all that goes on. When you go to a public gym where there will be other people around, you’ll have to realize that you’re going to see a lot of weirdos and also see a lot of careless people about a public place.

Every time I go to my local gym, it’s amazing to me how many people don’t care to re-rack their weights when they’re done with a piece of equipment. Happens all of the fucking time. Each time I go to a gym and it still happens, I’ll see people just leave weights on a bench press, a leg press machine and people leave weights on a squat rack too. I’ve seen people leave dumbbells at the other side of the gym and didn’t bring it back to the rack and I’ve seen people put number of dumbbell racks way out of order of the way they’re supposed to be in. Also, people leave trash behind all the time.

When I see this stuff, I have no problem putting the weights back and picking up trash even though I didn’t leave them there just to show respect to a public gym. Yeah, there are staff members that work at the gym but they don’t go around picking up trash and putting the weights back after people leave ’em. When the place is slow, the staff just sits at the front desk being a lazy bum and there is no gym director (the boss/supervisor). There is a gym director but this person is hardly ever around.

I love my Greenwich gym but the place is a mess and gym etiquette is horrible in this place. People are real dumb for sure. Not only people not re-racking weights and leaving trash behind is a real problem… it gets worse here. Equipment hogging is a real problem here… people taking forever to use something when I need to use that thing… people taking forever on a piece of equipment pisses me the fuck off. Your sets should only take like 20 or 30 minutes… not an hour or over. People talking on their cell phones during their workouts gets annoying. That real chatty person trying to chat me up while I’m working out also pisses me off and it’s happening more and more. Look, I enjoy talking to people at the gym but not during my workouts, y’all. I’m fine socializing with people before or after my workouts but during is a no no.

Another thing that gets on my nerves is people super-setting. You see people super-setting at gyms all the time. You know what super-setting is that’s when people do a workout after another without rests in between… they switch back and forth. You need to use a piece of equipment and you think that person is done with it and nope. This person says he/she is still using it due to “super-setting”. So dumb. I’m probably one of the very few who don’t “super-set” ’cause I think it’s dumb and useless. “Super-setting” is just a way for ego-lifters to piss off others in the gym. I don’t super-set. I do my 4 sets of 12 reps on a workout, finish that and move on to the next workout.

Also dropping dumbbells to the floor continues to be a problem. Guys doing dumbbell chest presses or shoulder presses on a bench and they just drop heavy dumbbells to the floor. They don’t realize that it’s disrespectful to the dumbbells. Those things are expensive and when you break ’em, you could be paying them for the gym. Also, you could hurt someone dropping dumbbells to the floor.

While people at gyms are dumb and wacky, I just go to the gym and do my own thing. I don’t worry about everyone else and what’s going on. People just don’t care about public places and they are not smart at all when it comes to the gym.

I would love to make my own home gym but I can’t as of this moment which is why I go to a public gym but if I ever did make my own home gym…. say goodbye to gym memberships. Having my own home gym is a dream of mine, though. You don’t really need much for a home gym. All you need is a power rack, a bench, barbells, weights, dumbbells and that’s pretty much it. You can get all that stuff cheap on craigslist or even yard sales. I would love to get a home gym so I no longer have to deal with people’s shit at a public gym.

Bad gym etiquette is getting much worse. It’s crazy.

Thoughts on Justin Bieber vs. Tom Cruise fight, who do I think will win???

Well, I think Tom Cruise will win, of course. As you all should know by now Justin Bieber challenged iconic actor Tom Cruise to an MMA fight in the Octagon and requested Dana White to do it for them. I know Biebs is probably joking but who knows, maybe he’s actually pretty serious and this fight could end up happening for real. It’s gonna be interesting to see how Tom is gonna respond to this.

Some of you may ask, why would Biebs challenge Tom to a fight? Does he hate him? No. Not at all. I don’t think Biebs hate Tom at all as I think he’s probably a huge fan of Tom’s movies. Justin probably watched the “Jack Reacher” and “Mission Impossible” movies and thought it would be funny to challenge Tom to a fight.

Some of you may say, “Well, movies aren’t real and Tom really doesn’t know how to fight.” Oh yes he does! While Tom didn’t have any martial arts and MMA experience, he was a wrestler back in his high school years so he does know some “fighting” skills before Hollywood.

Look at the response in this post in Quora:

https://www.quora.com/Did-Tom-Cruise-have-martial-arts-training-early-before-filming-his-first-Mission-Impossible-film-1996

Movies maybe fake but since Tom wanted to do all of his own stunts, including all of the fighting… yes, all the fighting scenes he has done over the years in movies were all him. I’m sure he was trained by martial arts professionals and MMA coaches to learn how to fight for film so Tom definitely does have plenty of fighting experience in film.

I think everybody knows that. Maybe Biebs doesn’t really want to fight Tom at all, he’s just joking and stuff, ya know? I think this is just Biebs way of showing Tom respect for doing his own fighting in action films. People are finally starting to catch on about Tom doing his own stunts and people are finally starting to give him respect for it.

I’m pretty sure Tom will respond to this challenge. I’m sure he already heard about it. Will Tom accept and could it actually happen??? Who knows. I doubt it will ’cause Tom is a pretty busy guy and I’m sure he has better things to do like making movies. He’s still working on “Top Gun 2” right now, I believe. I’m sure Tom heard about that tweet Justin posted and I’m sure Tom had a good laugh about it. Hopefully Tom responds this week.

Original “Ghostbusters” cast returning to reprise their roles in Ghostbusters III but will Annie Potts and Rick Moranis return as well, hopefully?

Yes, pretty much the whole gang of the Ghostbusters cast are coming back for Jason Reitman’s “Ghostbusters III”. Yes, Sigourney Weaver is coming back as Dana Barrett, Bill Murray coming back as Dr. Peter Venkman, Dan Aykroyd coming back as Dr. Ray Stantz and Ernie Hudson coming back as Winston Zeddemore.

Only Ghostbuster that can’t return is obviously Harold Ramis who was Dr. Egon Spengler and Harold passed away in 2014. I’m glad “GIII” is finally moving forward but it still won’t be the same without Egon, though.

https://www.slashfilm.com/ghostbusters-sequel-cast-original-cast-members/?fbclid=IwAR1UQKcgcMpMJEcTZ1y2ZUa5ADnSRwe4GfGC308RBlQPvoroh8BxI_VQXuQ

Now I’m wondering if Annie Potts will return as the Ghostbusters secretary Janine and wonder if Rick Moranis would come out of acting retirement to reprise his role as Louis Tully. I can see Annie coming back maybe but Rick? We’ll have to wait and see on that one. It would be awesome if Louis Tully did come back ’cause that character was what helped make the first two Ghostbusters movie entertaining.

I didn’t see the all-female reboot directed by Paul Feig and I don’t plan on seeing that film at all. I haven’t even touched it and still haven’t seen it. Don’t want to.

Now that we have a more appropriate Ghostbusters movie in the works, I’ll probably see “Ghostbusters III” if the trailers look good enough.

I’m a huge Ghostbusters fan. Have been all my life. The first one and the original was one of my all-time favorite movies. The second one was pretty good but the writing could have been better.

I wonder what the plot for “Ghostbusters III” is gonna be about? It’s probably gonna be the same plot Dan Aykroyd has been talking about for years… a passing of the torch kind of story. It’s probably gonna be about Ray, Peter and Winston teaching up and coming recruits on how to be a Ghostbuster. I’m sure we’ll see Slimer back and I’m sure we’ll see Staypuff back, but I’m sure the film will have new ghosts and new villains.

I’m hoping Jason don’t disappoint with this film. I’m sure he’s getting a lot of help and advice from his father, Ivan Reitman.

Some of you may say that Ghostbusters shouldn’t continue without Harold but this is a new movie franchise and series. It’s probably gonna continue on and on kind of like James Bond, Star Wars and Star Trek. Ghostbusters is definitely a franchise along those lines.

Even though Sony is continuing on without Harold, I’m sure the film will give Harold a tribute in some way. I bet Egon’s ghost will make a cameo appearance if anything. That will probably happen.
