That's on GP?

My little brother uses this a lot. I did a stint in the pen and heard the brothers from the Bay area use it a lot but what does it mean? That's on GP?

That's on general principle, meaning "for no reason" or "just because."

GP - on general principle - not too well known over here.

To us over here a GP is the person you go to see when you need medical attention or advice - ie your doctor. General Practitioner - a medic qualified to act in General Practice - ie medicine. Unless they operate privately (and you do have the option to register with private health practioners if you are willing to pay all their fees as and when demanded either straight off your own bat or through your private health insurance schemes) the vast majority of GPs in the UK operate within the NHS (National Health Service) which is paid for by all of us who slog our guts out for a living through the deductions taken from our salaries (or wages if you prefer) via NICs (National Insurance Contributions) with appropriate contributions simiultaneously being made by all employers.

Anyone over 60 years of age do not have to pay these NICs while still have access to full NHS facilities.
