Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Monday

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.

appropriating morality (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo May 1. 7 Replies

We've all heard the claim: "Human morality comes from god."  And we've all seen for ourselves what Yahweh's "morality" looks like, from condemnations of homosexuality and the treatment of women as chattel to inexplicable sanctions against the eating…Continue

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

Started by Loren Miller Apr 19. 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

Thank you, Daniel and Qiana. Craig gives me great comfort and so do my A/N Support Team. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 13, 2016 at 1:23pm

Craig arrived and he sports a beautiful beard, a beautiful gray with white going up his cheeks into his temples. Oh, it felt good to have him here. 

Cary; in mid September was diagnoses with esophageal cancer that spread to his lymph glands, lungs, and into his brain. He was told he had one month to live. It is now five weeks. His weight is down to 132.

I will be posting his progress in "Cancer", Daniel's very supportive group.

That is "Every time", not "Overtime"  Autocorrect on this new computer is another aggravation.  

Comment by Idaho Spud on October 13, 2016 at 1:09pm

Congratulations Kathy.  I can understand the aggravation of things like that.  I put off things like that also.

I deleted my fb account about 2 years ago, but don't remember it being aggravating.  What was aggravating was them saving my account information for about a year after that.  Overtime I unknowingly tried to do something that required fb, it would give me my account details and ask me if I wanted to re-up, or something like that.  I always refused.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 13, 2016 at 1:07pm

Is there a secret to deleting fb? If you discover it, Kathy, let me know 

Comment by kathy: ky on October 13, 2016 at 1:02pm
I just spent 45 minutes deleting my fb account. I hadn't even looked at it for two years. Kept meaning to delete it and putting it off because I knew it would be aggravating. And it was.

Have a good time with your son, Joan.

I can see now why Trump admires Putin. He has opponents 'removed.'

Comment by Idaho Spud on October 12, 2016 at 1:18pm

Wow!  That's scary.  Threatening to jail political enemies.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 12, 2016 at 1:14pm

Grinning Cat, threats, intimidations, thuggery, and bullying reveals a new low. This country should end. We deserve better. We need a president and Congress who stand tall, proud to be a citizen of our country, members who support free speech and assembly, that opens its books to reveal how deals come into being, and debates, properly performed, to bring out all pros and con of an issue. 

I have to believe there is a strong undercurrent of voters who understand how a federal republic works and why citizen involvement is necessary. 

I can't think of anything positive to write. Give me minute, I will catch a positive thought. 

OH YES My son from Colorado arrives in less than an hour. 

Comment by Grinning Cat on October 12, 2016 at 12:28pm

Yes and yes. The tangerine would-be Mussolini (a.k.a. Hair Furor, the Calumnious Kumquat, the Screaming Orange Cheato [sic], and many other cheap but oh-so-appropriate names) threatened to jail his political enemies at the end of the last debate.

Not only that, he shows no remorse for having bragged about sexual assaults; he shrugs it off as "locker-room talk" that "all men" do.

In a truly civilized country, just one of these and other things he's done would make him unelectable to 99% of voters.
