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.

Never let it be said that Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is anything less than up to date with the state of the art as it comes to the modern household.  However, as a discriminating conservative Christian, Betty would never tolerate…Continue

New Rule: Church and Destroy (Real Time with Bill Maher - HBO)

Bill Maher is an atheist [whoa, shock and amazement!].  He is also a dedicated opponent of Donald Trump and anyone who would support the man or his goals ... and that includes ol' Yahweh, himself!  As it turns out, there is a substantial correlation…Continue

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 23. 3 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Grinning Cat Aug 27. 20 Replies

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

I got that trump/russia Tweeted....maybe Twitter rules are different here.

Comment by Patricia on February 16, 2018 at 2:07am

I've always thought that that was one of the most ridiculous phrases I'd ever heard.

Maybe deciding not to have children is an unintended outcome that would be best for the planet. It seems that choosing not to have children presents a weak force against the influence of religion to "go forth and multiply" imperative.

Maybe the young ones who make it to adulthood, may decide not to have kids for risking them to bullets!

Comment by Patricia on February 16, 2018 at 1:29am

Yes, I support public education too, but I'd be very uncomfortable sending them to the US schools until something changed. I could never quit worrying during the 5 days a week they were there, & who needs that stress, for the kids & the parents? You aren't going to have any of your young ones left if this doesn't change..

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 16, 2018 at 1:08am

Patricia, I agree, parents have every right to take their children out of school, public and private, and homeschool them. 

I say this as a firm supporter of public education. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 16, 2018 at 1:06am

Well, well, well. I just tried a half dozen times to retweet Trump fucked by Russia and could not get it published. Does censorship raise its ugly head?

Comment by Patricia on February 16, 2018 at 12:45am

I just saw something on Twitter about parents should take all the kids out of schools for a week or until something gets changed in the gun laws.

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 16, 2018 at 12:43am

Patricia! Perfectly stated, "Engage with reality and fix your fucking fun laws!"
