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.

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Speak English? YOU FIRST! (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Donald R Barbera Sep 27. 5 Replies

Honestly, the title to this piece is badly under-representative of the content.  To be far more accurate, what we have here is Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, going on a rant.  Before you say it ... Say WHAAAA?  Betty Bowers ranting? …Continue

It seems as though lately, Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is evolving into America's Best Patriot.  She has recently been taking some fairly well-aimed shots at a certain Orange Nightmare and his sycophantic hangers-on, regarding the…Continue

I did notice that the poppies in Attica and Boetia have a deeper hue than in other places. The soil is very red so that might be why.

Nice one, Chris/Plinius.

A proper health service would be the better option, Carl but believe me people have their battles with that too.

For Joan, some 'Greek' flora:

Well said, Chris and Loren!

Comment by Loren Miller on April 12, 2017 at 1:37pm

VERY well put, GC, and I like your commentary on that, Chris.  It's as though too many people see generosity as an evil, depending on its usage, and that's the kind of attitude which could tear a society to ribbons.

Comment by Plinius on April 12, 2017 at 1:08pm

And what do you get when you prevent every possibility of freeloading? A country full of people who are scared that someone else is better off, and you destroy all the chances of solidarity and generosity. Brrrr! 

Comment by Grinning Cat on April 12, 2017 at 12:53pm

Some people don't want to risk the "moral hazard" of people "freeloading" and receiving healthcare that they didn't themselves pay for or insure for. Many of those people are Christians... whose entire religion is based on the "ultimate moral hazard" of a rescuer/savior who gives people entirely unearned salvation out of his kindness and goodness!

You've nailed it again.

Because that would be SOCIALISM, Carl ... and we CAN'T have THAT!  That would make us like them godless commies!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on April 12, 2017 at 9:12am

Struggling with the ins and outs of Social Security, Medicare, supplemental insurance, non-covered insurance thresholds, non-covered prescription deductibles...Ugh!!  Why the F*CK can't we be a civilized and sane country with single payer health care?!   

Comment by Loren Miller on April 12, 2017 at 8:55am

So Jesus is all bent out of shape that us atheists don't go for the ridiculous and convoluted story that he / his dad cooked up and tried to lay on us ... and somehow, I can't even work up a good boo-hoo about that.

I do have a suggestion, though.  He's got a beer in front of him.  I suggest he drink it ... and another one after that and another one after that....
