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.

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Such Lyrics!

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

K.H., Mindy is referring to this blog post on the main page:

I don't understand why it's taking so long for this guy to get the boot.  I'm all for free speech but I think his presence on A|N tarnishes our reputation.  I don't wish to be involved in a community with a white supremacist and who has Hitler as his avatar.

Booklover, who you talking about?
Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 7, 2014 at 10:23pm

I'm also happy with that verdict out of Detroit.  I'm tired of people getting away with crimes because of some weird loophole in the law or basically being allowed to forgo taking responsibility for their thoughtless actions.

Love the cats sentiment and I know how it feels. ;)

At least he didn't get off with "stand your ground". I'm glad I never had to serve. Sounds rough k.h. ky.

Speaking of trials, the man in Detroit who killed the 19 year old woman who was knocking on his door, asking for help, after an auto accident, has been found guilty.
And I'm glad. I was afraid it would be another case like Zimmerman.

Joan, that accident happened very close to where I live.
