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.

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller Jan 1. 0 Replies

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

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.

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

Comment by k.h. 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.

Comment by k.h. ky on October 12, 2016 at 10:22am
That should have read the next debate.
Comment by Bertold Brautigan on October 12, 2016 at 6:54am

Before it was even over I felt like I needed a shower. Drumph was truly creepy.
