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.

Jabal that is a lovely quote. I agree completely. Thanks for posting that.

Is it true that the beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them?

Natalie -  to me, as long as a person is a 'good' person, i don't care what religion she is. as long as they respect me for my belief structure, i respect them, even if i totally disagree. wm. Buckly was very good friends with Galbraith (liberal) and they would debate each other all the time, even had him (G) on his pbs show.

hi sk8eycat - i seem to write you a lot -  yes, i do remember when weed was called 'tea'.  maybe we could skew the meaning of the 'tea party' to embarrass them - wish i had power like that sometimes  :]

I don't blame Ron Paul for anything the Tea Party does.  They are a force all their own.  I don't think anyone controls them.  They are like a stampeding herd of cattle.  They're scared, they're stupid and they have no idea where they're going.


I am

Grace Fitzpatrick, if you watch that clip closely you'll see that while the Tea Party was cheering for the uninsured man to die, Ron Paul said we shouldn't let him die.  Regardless, the Teap Party is an extremist organization of political terrorists and should be treated as such.

Grace, last year I had a diabetic coma, and I was left to lie in my own pee for more than 12 hours in a Catholic hospital. Later, I was asked to evaluate the care I received, and I gave them a "worst" rating in all areas. But at least they saved my life -- do have to give them credit for that.

Weiner's spot. 

".... voters in New York elected a conservative Republican to represent a Democratic district that has not been in GOP hands since the 1920s."    


Nevada and now this. ugh.
