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.

This speech gets my vote for her as POTUS. She knows the fight that needs to be fought and will not back down from it. This is not rhetoric with her. She is not a bought Senator and will not be a bought President.

Carl, I would like to see Elizabeth Warren as president as well. She is smart and tough, and not afraid of authority or power. She is a powerhouse that could get this country moving. She needs a Progressive Congress to achieve the goals to make our country strong again. 

I like the political discussion and think we need more of it here. I am always disappointed when the conversation slips into "Hello, how are you, I am fine". I like a good bone on which to chew.

It's not my intention to turn this forum into a political discussion, but here's a little snippet of Elizabeth Warren.  I would love to see her as our US president.

Mindy, as they say:  "Cool story, Bro."

That's a double bonus Mindy. You did good...

I just wanted to share that my son bought my daughter her dream camera, and gave it to her last night, for no other reason than he could afford it, and he wanted her to have it. It made her cry, and she doesn't do that very often. I am SO happy that my kids are close. I think they are both terrific! And bonus!, they are both Liberal Atheists! Lol

Let's have a Warren/Sanders ticket.

Or Sanders/Warren. Either one is fine with me.
Comment by booklover on July 17, 2014 at 4:44pm
Carl, I would vote for Bernie a Sanders and Elizabeth Warren also. They are both great!
As for people being intellectualy lazy, I don't think they have enough intelligence to even think of becoming more informed.
