Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Sunday

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.

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

how dogma pollutes discourse (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller Apr 3. 0 Replies

"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

To me, this is a big deal (though it may not be to them): two great YouTube video producers have joined forces to deliver one very powerful message on an important subject.  TheraminTrees and QualiaSoup (brothers, I believe) have recently released a…Continue

Ballot issues sound good Daniel.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on October 21, 2016 at 8:43am

That sounds like a fun time, Randy. A good meal with fun company.

I like those ballot issues, Daniel. If we end up with both a Democratic president and congress, I suspect Citizens United will be fixed by law.

Have a good time Randall!

Comment by Ian Mason on October 21, 2016 at 8:06am

Have a great time with the grandkids, Randall.

Comment by Randall Smith on October 21, 2016 at 7:59am

We have no propositions on our ballots. Only one "extra"--whether to retain a judge or not. I like your firt measure, Daniel.

I have a book recommendation on Nexus Book Club group.

I've invited my daughter's family (the "farmers") over for dinner tonight (potato and ham casserole), with the two oldest (4 and 7) staying overnight and much of Saturday while their parents do a farmers market. I think I can handle it. Wish me luck! No prayers, however.  

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on October 21, 2016 at 7:46am

Thanks for posting those, Daniel. I haven't been paying a lot of attention. There's also an interesting one in Oregon, BM 97. It would tax corporations with over $25M annual revenue at 2.5%. Of course the usual corporate shills are out screeching about what a bad idea it is.

If ky ballots looked like those I would be excited too :)
Comment by Randall Smith on October 20, 2016 at 8:08am
Speaking of windmills, my county (in Indiana) has a controversy raging on whether to permit landowners to have them built or not. I'm not sure who has the final word--zoning comission?

I've found a prayer I can get behind. By Chuck Lorre:

A nonpartisan, nondenominational prayer for America
God,
Please make this election be over soon
Amen

Now and again a cartoon says more than a philosopher.
