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.

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Sep 3. 2 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Aug 4. 2 Replies

They're all around us: people who perceive the world as revolving around them and will go to considerable lengths to make it so: narcissists.  Such beings have been with humanity, I suspect, since humanity emerged from the gene pool.  Even worse,…Continue

I'm in Italy this week, enjoying some 'a Roma' therapy.

We haven't heard anything from him for a long time, Chris. I'm worried that something bad has happened.

Grinning Cat, the legacy of the Cold War: legacy fighting

*godless Commies,

*"under God" inserted into the Pledge of Allegiance, *"ceremonial deism,"

*"In God We Trust" motto.

We have our work cut out for us.

Bertold, thanks for the piece by Michael Stone,

"An exercise in religious superstition and ignorance, the annual National Day of Prayer is more than just an insult to common sense and reason, it is a clear violation of the Establishment Clause to the First Amendment of the US Constitution. As such, the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional: it is nothing less than a government endorsement of religion."

I surely would like to read, "about my four years in Arizona politics."

Comment by Joan Denoo on May 3, 2018 at 1:10pm

Tom, I remember the murder of Don Bolles. Was his murder ever found, prosecuted, and sentenced? 

Do you have an idea who the murderer was? 

What was it like for you, running in Arizona politics in such a climate of fear? 

Is it any better today than in Bolles' day?
