Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jun 3. 1 Reply

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

appropriating morality (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo May 1. 7 Replies

We've all heard the claim: "Human morality comes from god."  And we've all seen for ourselves what Yahweh's "morality" looks like, from condemnations of homosexuality and the treatment of women as chattel to inexplicable sanctions against the eating…Continue

The following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty…Continue

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

The following links on YouTube to Sit and Be Fit by Mary Ann Wilson is available on YouTube.

Doing some of the excercises she recommends may help you gain strength and help you recover in the long term.

The Orange One is genuinely unlikable, regardless of age, race, religion, occupation, 

* Neocons hate him because he has upset their little applecart,

* Left hates him for his alleged xenophobia, Islamophobia, and other high crimes, such as being a successful businessman.

* Sensible Center hates him because of his unvarnished, unrehearsed resemblance to ordinary Americans (setting aside his possession of several billion dollars in assets).

I do not like him because he is unreliable, undependable, dishonest, exploitive, manipulative, selfish, narcissistic, paranoid, childish, egoistical, arrogant, megalomaniacal, pompous, self-indulgent, --- I am getting tired of typing, you add your words to describe tRump!

Yes, Spud, the great majority of us cannot stand that guy! They will find the odd one to interview on the news who claim they like him, but they are the ones who seem to act like a sackful of hammers.

Patricia, I like that comment about the orange idiot.  Do most people in Canada dislike him?

Comment by Patricia on November 1, 2017 at 6:09pm

Well your kids were kids & we expect them to do things like that until they outgrow it.

All your words about that creep are all right on.

I got a laugh in hospital.....The aides came along to give me a bed bath, along with the comment about getting the iodine washed off my right side, saying they didn't want any resemblance between me & that orange idiot in the US.

When my three kids were little we camped on the St. Joe River. Cary and Craig were playing on a gravel bar of the river some distance from Laura who was playing on a sand bar. She slipped and fell into the river and claimed that Craig pushed her. 

Does that not sound like Trump and his claim about Hillary?

Childish behavior, immature, babyish, infantile, juvenile, puerile; silly, inane, jejune, foolish, irresponsible, boyish, baby, naive, simplistic, and superficial!

Comment by Patricia on November 1, 2017 at 5:26pm cute, & cuddly.

  People who were involved with the Nixon Watergate (Carl Bernstein, James Dean, and others) have said there are remarkable parallels between Watergate and Trump Administration. I have the feeling that the big difference between the two and that the Trump supporters really don't care about the crimes committed under his watch because they are spiteful people. They are angry at Obama, and angry that Hilary wasn't indicted. They are hateful people who feel are licensed under Trump to lash out with their religious and political machinery to suppress the minorities. It was said that the majority of Trump supporters were the under-educated people but the fact is many are college educated and earn over 80K per year.
