Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

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

Such Lyrics!

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

There's no getting around it, Atheist Pig is fast becoming my fave secular comic, and as evidence, I refer you to the following.  Jesus and Mo had better watch their respective asses, 'cuz they got a porker coming up on the outside, and I'm pretty…Continue

Something to start your weekend with: an unusual and unique (I think) guitar, and a beautiful piece played on it, by one Jan Laurenz:

This is about as sports-fan-y as I get, Pat and Grinning Cat.

Hope you all have a good weekend.

Everything Loren said and then some. When Bernie made his now famous remark about the Hillary's emails l wondered how the t pity responded? That two people can disagree and still be decent to each other is an idea the repubs can't grasp. And they would want no part of it if they could.
How much of this shit the repubs spread do they really believe? I'm afraid it's much more than most people would think.

Loren, I missed the Democratic debate -- was in a rehearsal... You might like this cartoon that I shared in Politics, Economics, and Religion:

(Two Republicans, portrayed as anthropomorphized elephants, after watching the Democratic presidential debate) “No racism, sexism, Islamophobia, homophobia, insults, personal attacks, or denial of science...” “Boring!”Carl and Pat, I'm a "horrible" American guy... couldn't care less about sports. I grew up in a home where football season was actually meaningful, for one reason and one reason only: on Sunday nights "60 Minutes" would predictably be unpredictably delayed.

Carl, you didn't watch the Cubs annihilate the Motling Birds from Missouri?! Worse than tar and feathering, you run the risk of being exiled to Cellular One Field.

Go Cubs Go!

Oh Yeah - Go Bernie Go!!

The Democratic debate (what I saw of it [channel surfing!]) was a total breath of fresh air by comparison with the BS session which was the GOP version.  You'd think the Republicans would learn ... but then, aren't they the ones who oppose teaching critical thinking skills?

Comment by The Flying Atheist on October 15, 2015 at 12:23am

I'm a horrible Chicagoan.  I watched the Democratic debate instead of the Cubs game. Blasphemous!  I'm lucky I haven't been tarred, feathered and run out of town.

Ruth, your new profile photo is lovely. You look beautiful. your white hair looks golden in this image and complements your facial structure.
