Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

A Prayer for Our Nation (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia yesterday. 1 Reply

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet.  Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has seen what is going on with the current occupant of the Oval Office, and my impression is that she is not at all happy with it.  True to her citizenship,…Continue

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Started by Idaho Spud. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 11. 30 Replies

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

While I've been peripherally aware of him for a while, David Smalley has not spent much time in the center of my focus when it came to scoping out atheist material on YouTube or elsewhere ... at least up until now.  His talk – Eating Our Own – came…Continue

This speech gets my vote for her as POTUS. She knows the fight that needs to be fought and will not back down from it. This is not rhetoric with her. She is not a bought Senator and will not be a bought President.

Carl, I would like to see Elizabeth Warren as president as well. She is smart and tough, and not afraid of authority or power. She is a powerhouse that could get this country moving. She needs a Progressive Congress to achieve the goals to make our country strong again. 

I like the political discussion and think we need more of it here. I am always disappointed when the conversation slips into "Hello, how are you, I am fine". I like a good bone on which to chew.

It's not my intention to turn this forum into a political discussion, but here's a little snippet of Elizabeth Warren.  I would love to see her as our US president.

Mindy, as they say:  "Cool story, Bro."

That's a double bonus Mindy. You did good...

Hehehehe, the numbers begin to show the shift in demographics.

Let's have a Warren/Sanders ticket.

Or Sanders/Warren. Either one is fine with me.
Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 17, 2014 at 4:38pm

I would vote for Bernie Sanders in a New York minute as well.  I have mixed feelings about Hilary Clinton.  At this point in time she is the apparent frontrunner in a presidential race, far ahead of any possible republican candidate.  I would much prefer her in the oval office over any of the nutcases presented from the GOP side.   Like they say:  the lesser of two evils.

I'm quite impressed with Elizabeth Warren, senator from Massachusetts.  I would love to see her as president.  The problem with both her and Bernie Sanders is that they are virtually unknown to the vast majority of the ignorant public.  They wouldn't have a chance against the usual superficial personality contests that permeate presidential elections amongst the general populous.  I wish people weren't so intellectually lazy.    

Comment by sk8eycat on July 17, 2014 at 12:30pm

I would vote for Bernie Sanders in a skinny minute!  Mrs. Clinton lost me when she made an impassioned speech in the Senate (in Oct. 2002) favoring the despicable invasion of Iraq.  If she really believed the WMD lies, then she's too stupid to occupy the Oval Office; if she knew they were lies, but favored the rape of Iraq anyway....SHE is despicable.  (Plus she still has connections to the subversive Family Fellowship and their "prayer partners."  Gullible twit.)

Barton is only one of many really ignorant politicians. Mercy! I see that Bernie Sanders (I, VT) is considering running for pres. I like him.
