Brian Leiter was actually pretty good this year, except for his lies about Trump which are sadly typical of a degraded profession.

Be specific, otherwise I'll assume you're just a trump fanboy.

Leiter is obsessed with Trump. He buys every lie and distortion as soon as the Fake News can hustle them off the assembly line (presumably with underpaid non-American labor). It's quite sad to watch someone talk up the school of suspicion so hard while being oblivious to the media-industrial complex crafting his every thought.

It should not be difficult to name one, then.

You have to be pretty fucking stupid to be a Trump fan. Or a sick sick puppy.

Gonna name a specific story Leiter was foolee by? Or is your fake news strategy one of those in principle unfalsifiable claims?

President Trump has done more for America in one year than the previous, Marxist, president did in eight. This is mainly due to undoing the economic and sociological (racist) turmoil brought about by the failed ideology of Trump's predecessor.

America isn't Mexico Norte or an experiment in the revolutionary transformation of society into a hive of genderqueer video-game addicts. Trump says this publicly and he is made out to be an enemy and a lunatic.

I suppose if living in a Communist hell-hole ruled by incompetent elites is your idea of paradise, or even a desirable end-point for for society to strive after, this would make sense.

The sane among us, who have families and culture and values that we would like to preserve in the face of your attempt to remodel society according to the radical "progressive" agenda, like Trump just fine. We are pleased that he will be in office for 8 years.

I weigh approximately 155lbs. How much should I bench for it to be regarded as "impressive"?

155 (= bodyweight) would be fine; 225 (= @1.5 BW) would be pretty damn good, plus the 2 big plates on each end is impressive

Assuming the 155 poster is a he and not a she, a real one, not an impostor. I've seen women who diligently train for strength and fail to get a BW bench or much over. (This is one reason why MtF transWhatever should not be allowed to compete in women's sports. . . .)

The numbers below are pretty wonky in some places, but they give you something to start with. They are pretty good for women's bench, but too light for women's deadlift.

http://sscfit.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/WLSTANDARDS.pdf

A crude set of ambitious goals for men is as follows:

Press=BW

Bench=1.5xBW

Squat=2xBW

Deadlift=2.5xBW

These are hard to achieve, especially as you get heavier. The bumper sticker version is 2,3,4,5. The upper body goals are nearly impossible for most women. If you hit these numbers and get tenure, you will likely be one of the 10 or so strongest tenured philosophers in the world.

Hell let's make a handicap. Aim for this and you'll still probably be in the club. You'd all fit in a small classroom:

Press=.75xBW

Bench=1.25xBW

Squat=1.75xBW

Deadlift=2.25xBW

Even if "Edward" were a homosexual, he certainly wouldn't be interested in a depressive little twink, especially one whose identity is built around vulgar toilet-humor and so fragile as to be "triggered" by a President who would have been called a moderate centrist a any time before the 1980s.

Agreed. Edward definitely wants a big bear he could bottom for.

That is hilarious, Mircea. Any time before the 1980s, when men were still men, Trump would have been regarded as exactly what he is--a gigantic pussy and an idiot. Think about a real "moderate centrist"--like Ike or JFK--and then imagine how a meeting between him and Trump would have gone.

"Claudia", I assume that squat figure is for back squats? How would front squats compare (I prefer them)?
