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.

Don't forget that the Zionists are the oppressors.

www.isidewith.com scores me as siding 98% with Bernie Sanders, vs. 79% with Hillary Clinton, 51% with Chris Christie (on environmental issues), and much lower for other Republicans.

Name-calling that I've seen online that's sometimes quite appropriate: the "Republican't" party.

Ruth, a few years ago I took some sort of political identification assessment test on line.  I don't remember the website or if I saved the results.  But I remember that I scored something like 98% Green Party identification and 94% Democratic Party.  (I think Republican was around 35%.)  In today's environment, it's frustrating that here in the US we don't have any major political party that seriously has environmental issues on the front burner at all times and that creates common-sense policy based on that issue.

'Zionists are just as brutal as Palestinians'

Have you any idea what your talking about Joan???????????????.

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 16, 2015 at 2:16pm

Ian, I am enjoying te Dowland/Sting documentary. The late Tudor period was a bloody time, with children learning a rhyme of Henry VIII wives, "Divorced, Beheaded, Died, Divorced, Beheaded, Survived". Quite a history lesson these kids acquired. 

"Divorced, Beheaded, Died: Divorced, Beheaded, Survived"

I'd vote for Bernie, if I get a chance. But since I'm Green rather than Democrat, probably won't get one.

Carl, I loved the guitar fan dog. Thanks for a bit of cheer.

Comment by Ian Mason on June 16, 2015 at 12:31pm

Yes, Carl, election soon. The polls say that things are about 50/50 as to which side wins, so the 'Atlantic Seats' may actually decide who gets to govern. The party that's predicted to make the biggest gain in Denmark is the Nationalist 'Peoples' Party' although most of the others are also using slogans about being tough on foreigners. There's been a nasty tone in the whole debate.

John Dowland: Melancholy was the fashionable mood in the late Tudor period so he didn't write up-tempo songs.

Bernie hits all the right notes about economic and social conditions. I don't like his stand on Israel. I will vote for Bernie because of his stand on socialism ... I think he would work to implement a social democracy. He would have little success with the present congress. If someone appears who has those values and does support the rights of both Israel and Palestine to have sovereignty over their lives, then I will reconsider. I do not support a one state solution because I don't think it would ever work. Zionists are just as brutal as Palestinians and I do not see peace coming from that option. 

None of the present candidates for POTUS will get my vote, especially with the Supreme Court judges that might be replaced.

Carl, that is sooo funny!! And Golden nods right on the beat!

I'll have to look up Simeon ten Holt. Hope you're doing well.
