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

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)

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

What a todo! The Turkish and the Dutch government bitching at each other and Geert Wilders - our own little trump clone - adding fuel to the fire. Mind - we'll have elections on Wednesday and I hate to think how that will work out. I fear a shift to the right..

I was a census enumerator one cycle. People aren't chosen at random to receive a knock at the door from census enumerators. Enumerators only show up when a household doesn't fill out the census forms.

Perhaps the person at your door was a poll taker rather than a census taker. The census is taken to determine the number of legislators in the House of Representatives. The Census doesn't ask questions about consumer spending.

Did you have a choice to answer them or not? Supposed if you  had refused?

Randy, who was taking the census?  The federal census is not for another 3 years.

The last federal census I completed on line, but a person came by a while after that and wanted to ask me some of the same questions, even after I told them I had completed it online.  I think I complied because she had identification, but if it happens again, I'll say no.

Yesterday, I heard a knock on the door and saw who I first thought was a dreaded J.W. But no, she was a census taker. I'd been forwarned last month about being interegated, chosen randomly.

The questions asked were bizarre. The theme of the census was my spending habits, basically. "Since Dec. 1st have you bought any clothing", for example (I bought socks the day before!). Furniture, car, TV (yes), etc. Did I go on any trips? Where? How much did you spend on lodging, gas, food, entertainment? Property taxes, utility bills, house payment--no page went unturned. I almost felt violated. But, I complied. The interview took about 30 minutes, and I was glad when it was over. Whew!

Do conservatives believe babies are chattle for economic growth?

I thought it was quite good too.
