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

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 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

To a degree, Pence was the poison pill which may have been meant to insure Trump's position as president.  The obvious problem is that Trump may have outperformed his own "insurance policy" as it comes to that, and his incompetency may require his eventual removal from office.

Whereupon we're stuck with an apparent Dominionist.  And I'm perfectly happy to burn that bridge when I get to it.

Just to be cheerful, a few holiday snaps.

The NL election is, in one way a bit of a relief (re Wilders) but bad news in the main. The Social Democrats have collapsed completely so there's no middle alternative and the Red/Green wing aren't large enough to challenge the right wing. That's how I've understood it, anyway. Who'll form a coalition with whom is now the big issue and might take months to work out. It's happened before.

Online bookmakers are laying odds on Trump either going or being pushed within the first year at about evens, 50/50. I think toppling Trump be a good thing as it might unnerve the extreme Right and push them back down their holes.

Impeachment requires action by elected folk who are terrified of Trump's voters.

Removal via the 25th requires only Pence and the appointed cabinet. Who voted for Pence? Not Trump's voters.

Joan, ever the pessimist, aren't you?
Trump's sanity is in question. Pence's isn't.
Comment by Joan Denoo on March 16, 2017 at 1:50pm

OH! Thanks for the heads-up, Tom!  Pence is worse than Trump! OH! Ye gads!! We fell down a rat hole.

Impeachara - call your special investigator if you have an election that lasts more than two months.

Comment by tom sarbeck on March 16, 2017 at 1:10pm
Impeachara, no! It will require both House and Senate, Pence will become president, and will take months.

Taking him out via the 25th Amendment will require only Pence and the cabinet and take maybe minutes.

Impeachara!
