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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Started by Idaho Spud. Last reply by Jonathan Simeone Aug 5. 29 Replies

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

It's shocking how politics are lurching further to the right and how nationalists are gaining ground. In Britain there's been a campaign to bring back the 'golliwog' that used to be a trademark of a brand of jam.

Of course, and it's not the children who protest, but their parents...

Rutte is often described as a psychopath, and as far as I can see it's true. Four months more until the elections, and Wilders is the winner in the polls - another psychopath and that one walks on the Mossad's leash. I'm afraid we're in interesting times...

Chris, I saw that same video. (I subscribe to the Vox channel on YouTube.)  I have to agree, your Prime Minister seems rather flippant and insensitive about the whole blackface issue.

Comment by Randall Smith on December 4, 2016 at 7:40am

Chris, I had no knowledge of this "blackface" story. Interesting, but disturbing. It needs to be eliminated.

Comment by Plinius on December 4, 2016 at 3:52am

Almost Sinterklaas - santa Claus - his birthday is celebrated on 5th December, and the discussion about his blackface servant has become quite heated in the last few years. Unlike our PM I want playing blackface to end - it's disrespectful and has its roots in a disgusting colonial past. More on YouTube...

Joan, those are beautiful images.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 2, 2016 at 2:05pm

Beautiful images Joan.  I'll have to think more of what image I would like on a stamp to represent atheism. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 2, 2016 at 12:40am

Daniel, your new kitchen looks brand new, not like a remodel to suit the inspector. I hope all goes well with your plans and project. How do you like your sink? I see them in modern kitchen photos and wonder if they work well for you? My friend, Char, had one that looked like that and loved it. Is your energy holding up through all this? 

Spud, you are correct, we need an atheist Winter Solstice stamp. Do you have an idea for a design? I kind of like the images of the shortest day of the year and the returning of the light. 

The sun's path over Fairbanks, Alaska on the shortest day of the year.

Great work, Daniel, and I admire the methodical way you ordered your plans!

Yes, people will discover all over again what patriotism does to people, but we can only encourage them to read their own history.
