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.

@Kit - You lost me. What video? Is the video called "think I'm speechless."?
Comment by Kit Blumenstein on June 17, 2011 at 6:40pm

I watched the video, think I'm speechless.  Just how dumb are people? 

"As the creation–evolution controversy developed, the term "anti-evolutionists" became more common, then in 1929 in the United States the term "creationism" first became specifically associated with Christian fundamentalist opposition to human evolution and belief in a young Earth, though its usage was contested by other groups, such as old earth creationists and evolutionary creationists, who believed in various concepts of creation."

And that's just from wiki. 

But the founding dads had this debate?  They really were able to leap tall buildings!

Paula - Good question. We just starting talking about why people believe in the SWifT group (Southeastern Wisconsin Free Thinkers). I think it's going to be a long topic!

AKron - how does such a dim bulb earn so many awards??  I've seenthe episode of The Daily Show where he was a guest and this clip and I am not impressed!  I thought he was really grasping and straws and stretching the truth the entire time.  Twisting facts to give the appearance they support his hair-brained ideas about history.
Comment by Paula T. on June 10, 2011 at 9:51pm
That was my thought, too!  I think the Founding Fathers were more concerned with forming a new government and nation.  I have a feeling that creating a public school curriculum, let alone a public school system.
