The Black Mambas: All Female Anti-Poaching Unit Protecting Rhinos In South Africa!
This is awesome... I just hate poachers with passion after watching this gifv  http://imgur.com/eyc2zZ6 where a rhino was removed its horns while alive in South Africa by stupid poachers. Wish I was a billionare and I just donate half of my wealth to Rangers so that they can completely wipe off poachers from the face of the earth.

Best way to keep someone quiet and not making trouble is force them to have kids. They'll be so fucking busy trying to keep food on the table you'll never hear a peep out of them and they'll take any job you offer them. And if some of those kids end up being prison slave labour or cannon fodder for your next military adventure, so much the better for the plutocrats who own your government.

The American Dream, and the freedoms in your Constitution, are only really available to some Americans, frankly. Betcha people making six figures aren't going to have any difficulty getting birth control or an abortion for their little princess.

Another alt-right sensitive snowflake having a tantrum because someone disagrees with him. They're always getting triggered by debate. Time to run to your safe-space, Senator Dipshit.

The argument always comes up: "Why should I have to pay for someone else's birth control?"

Valid question but we pay for other people's stuff everyday. Whether you have kids in school or not, you're paying taxes to go towards schools.

Look at it this way, it might cost taxpayers $2000 to cover ~25 years of birth control pills for 1 woman. On the flip side, if that woman has a kid because she couldn't afford birth control, she definitely can't afford the kid. You be looking at probably $200,000 in taxpayer payments just to get that kid to age 18, and that's a low estimate.

Just need to tell someone, I've been sober for a year!

Just need to tell someone, I've been sober for a year!

I am proud of myself. Celebrating with cinnamon bears, feelgood movies on netflix and the pets are rolling in food comas from treats.

I didn't really tell anyone. I went cold turkey. I was spiraling down a black hole of depression and anxiety. I felt like I was losing my mind.

It was hard, but I've done it. I am going to keep going as well. This was a lifetime change.

Now I have my chronic health issues back under control, have gained weight back to a normal BMI, and am back on medication that let's me live with my PTSD as a small pebble instead of a boulder on my back. Even my supervisor at work acknowledged my new calm demeanor and gave me a raise!

I am alive. I am in charge of my life. I am strong.

So I raise my tea mug to my fellow peers out there who may be struggling, who may feel weighted down but are still fighting. There is hope, you can do this.

In the words of Kimya Dawson, "WALK LIKE THUNDER".

Wow this is just surreal. I am also celebrating 1 year of sobriety, which I decided to do because I, too, was diagnosed with PTSD. As well as because I felt like I was spiraling down a hole of depression and anxiety. Ummm, are you me? Anyway, congratulations! I'm very proud of us. I would 100% suggest sobriety to anyone struggling with this magnitude of mental illness. It has made a huge impact on my life as well.

Edit: Hey thanks sir or madam for the gold! I get a surprising amount of praise for being sober, especially from friends or peers who I know struggle with alcohol abuse (or abuse-like tendencies, i.e. "If I don't drink tonight, I won't have fun" or "Uhg I'm so stressed out, I need to drink until I don't feel"). I only ever tell them one thing- You can do it too!

My wife passed away 3 years ago, my daughters took me out yesterday instead.

They suggested it, we went out for a movie then pizza. I miss her deeply, but she lives on though others.

Some advice I'd like to pass on is that you should feel free to treat valentines as a day to go above and beyond expectations of your gestures, but still show gestures of love daily.

Some great girls you've got there!
