This time there were 8 lifters from Great Britain (two of whom, Ron Collins and John Pegler, did stints as Referees), 6 Canadians, 2 Puerto Ricans, 3 Zambians, and 1 from the West Indies. With 67 lifters in all, the other 47 were Americans. Lifts were still measured in pounds, the bench press was the first lift, and there were still no suits, power belts, or fancy wraps.

Probably somebody suffering from political schizophrenia! Aside from that, since Americans cant seem to agree on political issues, I decided to merge the faces of our conservative and liberal talking heads. I wish that political energy/resources could be used to do great things, but its not. Every time a see a mudslinging television ad, I wonder how much is spent on demonizing an opponent rather than funding a needed program (um......art is vanishing from schools). It seems that our political pundits pour fuel on the fire rather than bringing a sensible voice to the bickering. It is sometimes hard to remember that they are entertainers who depend on advertising revenue from their shows. It seems that `sensational` is more entertaining which doesn`t do anybody any good. It frightens me that liberal and conservative, Democrat and Republican are becoming identities rather than ideologies and we forget that we are on the same side! -</p><p> </p><p>Photoshop is the Gold Standard for Photomanipulation Art</p><form action=`http://www.tkqlhce.com/interactive` method=`get`> <table style=`width: 600px;` border=`0` cellspacing=`0` cellpadding=`5`><tbody><tr><td width=`10%` valign=`top`><img src=`http://drh.img.digitalriver.com/DRHM/Storefront/Company/adbevlus/images/product/detail/CS4/box_photoshop_cs4_150x150.jpg` border=`0` alt=`Photoshop CS4 - License` /></td><td valign=`top`><p><strong><span style=`font-size: medium;`>Photoshop CS4 - License</span></strong></p><p><span style=`font-size: x-small;`>Create powerful images with the professional standard.</span></p><hr /><input name=`pid` type=`hidden` value=`3724826` /> <input name=`aid` type=`hidden` value=`10674112` /> <input name=`cjsku` type=`hidden` value=`Photoshop CS4 - License` /> <input name=`url` type=`hidden` value=`http://store.digitalriver.com/servlet/ControllerServlet?Action=DisplayProductDetailsPage&Locale=en_US&SiteID=adbevlus&productID=108142600` /> <input type=`submit` value=`Buy` /></td></tr></tbody></table></form><p><img src=`http://www.lduhtrp.net/image-3724826-10674112` border=`0` alt=`` width=`1` height=`1` /></p> ARTMORPH (Martial Arts)- Lee + Seagal + Van Dam + Norris. <p>  <script type=`text/javascript`><!--  google_ad_client = `pub-6730899040960500`;    /* 728x15, created 2/3/10 */    google_ad_slot = `1049141337`;    google_ad_width = 728;    google_ad_height = 15;  // --></script>  <script src=`http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js` type=`text/javascript`></script>  </p>  <p>What do you get when you `Photoshop` Bruce Lee, Steven Seagal, Jean Claude Van Damme and Chuck Norris? - There would be lots of spin kicking, artificial testosterone, bad hair pieces,ex wives and Martial Arts trophies.
