Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 884
Latest Activity: on Saturday

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.

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

Started by Loren Miller on Thursday. 0 Replies

The following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty…Continue

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

"The Lord is our God; the Lord is One." "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father, but by Me." "There is no god but Allah, and Mohamed is his prophet." Assertions, taught as fact, but without any form of corroborative…Continue

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!   

Comment by Loren Miller on March 16, 2017 at 9:55am

The current administration getting you down?  Tired of facepalming at fatuous statements from clueless spokespeople and orange nightmares?  There's HOPE!  There's Impeachara!

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 16, 2017 at 9:38am

Plinius, it sure sounds like The Netherlands goes the way of U.S. We have a rocky road ahead of us if the planet allows us to remain on the Earth. 

Comment by Plinius on March 16, 2017 at 9:13am

I'm glad Wilders is isolated, but I'm not at all happy with the election results. The majority in the new government will probably be liberal, and that's not left wing liberal like in the US. Right wing liberal means support for big companies, and the support will be paid from cuts on allowances, medical care, care for the disabled and the elderly, care for refugees, education and more. O well, four more years until the next elections, or sooner, if the government topples... 

Comment by Randall Smith on March 16, 2017 at 7:55am

Chris, all I can say is "Whew"! Although I hear the final vote results won't be make public until next week, it appears Wilder has lost. I'm sure it's a big relief to you. I wish I could have said the same about our election results. It's becoming a circus.

Yes, the trump-clone has won 20 out of 150 seats in parliament, but he can do nothing but stay in the opposition because no one wants a coalition with him, they refused that deal before the elections. The coalition will be quite a patchwork this time, the bigger parties lost seats and many small parties won a few seats. An ominous sound came from a historian - that there haven't been so many small parties since 1933, just before hell broke loose.

Plinius - your election result is a welcome sign.
