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.

Too bad Cheney didn' blast Scalia with his shotgun while they were out hunting drinks....would have improved his face:

Dishonorable SCOTUS Justice to American Democracy: 'Go Fuck Yourself'
RELATED: Al Gore Must Run Again...
By Brad Friedman on 1/25/2007, 11:52am PT  

AP reports the following comments made Tuesday by the unimpeached Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia concerning his decision to overthrow American democracy in the 2000 Presidential Election:

"It's water over the deck - get over it," Scalia said, drawing laughs from his audience.

We wonder what other decisions by the SCOTUS that Americans should "get over." We wonder if the voters of Florida who were denied their expressed intent to elect Al Gore should also "get over it." Doubtless, the more than 3000 U.S. troops killed by George W. Bush's unnecessary war have no choice but to "get over it."

Deceptively attempting to justify his wholly incorrect and unconstitutional decision by playing the unequally applied "Equal Protection Clause" card once again, Scalia reportedly added, "Counting somebody else's dimpled chad and not counting my dimpled chad is not giving equal protection of the law."

Interestingly enough, Scalia and the SCOTUS have stood by and allowed all forms of un-Equal Protection in Elections ever since --- from the myriad different voting systems and "standards" now used, to the myriad ways in which votes by voters in the very same county are counted differently and at different times. In other words, the repugnant democracy-hating Scalia is full of shit.

As pointed out --- though somewhat cryptically --- in the AP piece by Mark Sherman, subsequent study of the actual ballots in the state of Florida in 2000 showed that, in fact, had all of the them actually been counted (we know, it's a quaint idea) Gore would have won [PDF] the state, and thus the Presidency.

Speaking of which, Rolling Stone's Tim Dickinson says: Run, Al, Run. We concur, and offer John Lennon's "(Just Like) Starting Over" as our suggestion for the campaign's victory song.

Scalia considers himself a curmudgeon with his "cute" comments in and out of court session. And he wouldn't recuse himself from a case involving Dick Cheney after going hunting with him! Unfortunately, justices are lifers. The conservatives are too ignorant (and stubborn) to leave the court. Clarence Thomas was voted in (barely) at age 46, so he's going to be there for another 20 years! Horrors.  We all remember how Bush stole the election from Al Gore, thanks to the not-so-Supreme Court.

Comment by Randall Smith on November 19, 2014 at 7:55am

As a liberal, I've always been angry with most decisions of the Supreme Court, and now I see that I'm not alone. In The Case Against the Supreme Court, Erwin Chemerinsky elaborates on many of the ridiculous rulings handed down over the years. He's especially hard on the current Roberts court, and why shouldn't he be. We all know why. Still, it's good to have it in print. The author also details possible solutions to "the problem", but I'm not holding my breath.

Ian, I am sorry.

A bit of a problem with my afternoon. My daughter turned up only to go again. Her Grandfather is back in hospital and the doctors have told the family that there's not a lot more they can do. It's only a matter of time before his body just gives up.A life of hard work has taken its toll. Very sad because he's a smashing bloke.
