Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

Latest Activity: 8 hours ago

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

Patricia, so sorry about the triple crown.  However, he really has a bright future ahead of him at stud.  Hope he sires many, many triple crown candidates.  Also, glad to know they are taking good care of him.

Did everyone have a nice weekend?

Thanks for the link Patricia I will check that website out.

Comment by sk8eycat on June 10, 2012 at 7:26pm

That's exactly what Judy Hayes' column/blog is about this month...the twits who say "I'm so blessed" over everyday stuff like being okayed for a car loan, while something like 6,000 children under the age of 5 die every day from starvation.

Maybe Mendel and Malthus are/were gods.

Afriend of mine, who ought to know better, sent me this saccharine thing (watch the video, if you can do it without barfing):

Power in Numbers
> They say mathematics is the language God used to create the universe. 

> The equations here are astounding!

So I replied with this:

PS: That is NOT "mathematics," it's just arithmetic.  BFD.

Patricia, I agree.  But if we could not have a triple crown, then let Phyllis Wyeth's horse Union Rags win just as he did in her dream.

Comment by Lillie on June 8, 2012 at 8:36pm

Paula, it is a sad state of affairs when you can't get elected to public office unless you are a christian.  Billy Graham's son even said President Obama isn't enough of a christian when Romney is not a christian at all.  How do they reconcile this?

Comment by Tammy S on June 8, 2012 at 6:39pm

I hope that's true Tony, but have we had our 'dark ages' yet in this country seriously? I think the slavery issue was probably akin to the dark ages, as was the genocide of the Native Americans, definitely the dark ages for millions therein, so I can be a little optimistic when considering those points in our history as having completed the cycle and say, maybe, just maybe this is the death throes of religious fundamentalism for this country...

Comment by Tony Carroll on June 8, 2012 at 6:32pm

Guys, do you think this is the last gasp we are seeing of fundamentalism rearing its head? I mean in most polls, the approval of humanistic values/equality/civil rights is winning, therefore causing this vitrolic backlash? What ya' think?
