Hang With Friends

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.

The myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 16. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

As Maynard G. Krebs would say, He's, like, a real human being.

Bertold, my brother in law just finished that book and has raved about how good it is and what an impressive person Franken is.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on August 8, 2017 at 9:56am

I'm reading Al's book, Giant of the Senate. He quotes Kevin Drum in Mother Jones:

For the fat-cat donors, special-interest lobbyists and elected officials who usually run the Republican show, Trump is an invasive species. But he had grown large and strong in the manure they have spread across the political landscape.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 8, 2017 at 9:49am

Oh, Gods and Powers of the Universe, to have a president who has common sense!

Comment by Thomas Murray on August 8, 2017 at 9:44am

Back in 1983 I would laugh if someone told me that Al Franken would someday be a Senator. Today I am glad he is. His use of  politics, common sense, humor, and graceful sarcasm would make him a great president.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on August 8, 2017 at 9:15am

Minnesota is lucky to have such a conscientious and well-intentioned senator. Actually, they're lucky to have two.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 8, 2017 at 8:42am

Bertold, I've never seen that clip of Al Franken.  Stupendous!  Who in 1983 would have thought he'd become a respected US Senator. 

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on August 8, 2017 at 8:14am

OMG! Now Senator Al Franken does an unbelievable Mick Jagger imitation.

So you can do the same thing while in your wheelchair.....
