I was a 3 year old orphan when I met Luke Kuechly. He found me on the side of the road, and nursed me like his own. 3 years after suckling from the teet of the chosen one, I am now a 28 year old man with chest hair and razor stubble. @Stumptastic87
As someone who is pro life, I am thankful that there are organisations like PP who are fighting tooth and nail to make contraceptives available to all free of charge. I do not agree with their stance on abortion, but the work they do prevents more abortions than they facilitate.
I can accept abortion being a necessary evil in life or death situations. I cannot accept abortion as a form of contraception. We have condoms, pills, IUDs and surgeries that can do the job in a safer, healthier and more morally reasonable way.
It is a crying shame that the pro life agenda is so singularly focused on outlawing abortion, that it ignores (or vilifies) the most promising avenues to curtail the practice that it rails against.
My go to is usually half a cup of kale and spinach, one banana, two big scoops of Greek yogurt and whatever random fruit I have in the house. The kale/spinach/yogurt combo will do wonders for your gut biome, which affects everything from your morning constitutional, to your mental health. (For some, those two things are more closely linked than others. I'm looking at you SCP.)
So basically, exactly what I said in the post you quoted.
Look, Arsen, we get it. Your embarrassed that your homeland rolled over to Putin. And you think that the US should start WW3 to avenge Ukraine's soiled reputation.
Take your cry baby war mongering somewhere else.
Made a margarita pork loin with mexi rice and mango salsa the other night.
Marinated the loin in lime juice, agave nectar, olive oil, cilantro and garlic. Pan seared, then baked to a nice medium.
Fresh mango salsa with tomatoes and jalapenos from the garden, onions, mango, lime juice and cilantro.
Toasted the rice with a few spoonfuls of the salsa and some chili powder before boiling.
Layer slices of pork loin over the rice and top with salsa.
Great light, filling meal with a good amount of heat. I'm about to warm up some leftovers right now.
I just left after living there for 5 years. The area itself is beautiful and the location is pretty nice too. But, it is a NAFTA town through and through.
I remember when we moved to NC from Savannah, Hickory was expected to outpace Charlotte in growth. Then, the furniture packed up and left for the South China Sea. Now, empty mills and retail shops falling into dilapidation as far as the eye can see.
The education and employment opportunities are almost non existent, and the crime rate, unemployment rate and median income all bear that out.
There are some things I absolutely love about Hickory. (Glenn C Hilton is by far my favorite disc golf park in the state.) I hope that the city can finally recover from the industrial exodus 15 years ago. A public university would go a long way towards that end.
Considering that Hickory was recently voted the most miserable city in America, I find it odd that it is not on this list.
Also, Statesville is not great, but they have gotten a whole hell of a lot better than when I left that town 10 years ago.
