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.

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

Carl, I feel the same. I can't imagine a worse prez taking office. He act's like a spoiled two year old. The electoral college should have been shut down years ago. I don't understand why it is still used. I'll be watching old movies during the barf fest Fri.
On the bright side large numbers are expected to turn out in protest. That's not really bright but it's all I got :)

Just a little eye candy:

Yes, there is a problem with our tax code. It is not a new problem and both parties contribute to its failure. We saw the signs of an out-of-balance system in the 1970s with many people warning the general population of the distortion of taxes as evidenced by the growing gap between wealth and poverty. TV worked as the weapon of mass distraction, using sports, game shows and silly programs to keep the public mind off of issues that needed to be addressed. The propaganda campaign against "socialism" fails to recognize that police, fire, libraries, roads, bridges, are all paid by taxes. 

"Socialism was a political, social, and economic system meant to empower the working class. In the U.S. today, though, it's often used as shorthand for 'the services that government provides and which are paid for by taxes.' Depending on who's talking, that idea is either a goal or a target."

Having enough wealth that playing roulete in the political system as a hobby should be an indicator that there is a problem with the tax code.

Uber rich don't need public services except maybe the court system, and militray to protect  business interests.

Odd how enough people pontificated over a wealthy reality TV personality and elected him president.

Cantelope is more dangerous than terrorism.

And I bet you went out on that socialist road to buy milk, bread, eggs, and other groceries that were socialistically inspected for food safety!

Comment by Loren Miller on January 14, 2017 at 2:11pm

Hey, Bertold!  That snowplow wasn't followed by a socialist police car, was it?  Or maybe a fire engine???
