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.

Are you battling cancer or a cancer survivor?

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

Outbreeding is most certainly not the answer, but I doubt anyone would be able or allowed to ''get to'' their children. I'm just glad I won't be here 50 years or so from now.

Then what would you do, outbreed them? The best I can think of is contact their children and make them think. And refusing immigration doesn't help either, the young are thrown into the world, in this country or another. Here is better of course, then you can help them with their education and the second-generation immigrants have fewer children than their parents. More immigrants lessens the religious pressure of the xtian fundies. If there's one thing I don't like, it's a monoculture, so put on the mixer...

The trouble is.......the muslims are taking over everything by huge birth numbers......the more ignorant & uneducated, like the 3rd world countries, reproduce like rabbits. Then they expand, with their sob stories, into all of our countries taking our resources & insisting we become them or die. Controlling our population won't help this unless we start refusing so much immigration, but I think it's too late & I don't hold much hope for the future generations unless they clue in about religious bullshit......of course I won't be holding my breath for that.

Here too Carl, of course.  But tomorrow is supposed to be rainy and colder!!! :(  Beautiful tulips, and great cat-gif!

Speaking of population=control, my husband's friend's brother and his wife have TEN children ranging in age from 1-15.  You guessed it, they are religious (and not catholic.)  One of the girls has a severe facial birth defect.  The husband has been out of work.  They are staunch republicons, tea-baggers, etc., yet they are taking all of the government handouts they can get.  Guess 'god' can't provide.  They don't see the irony in this. Luckily, we have nothing to do with them. 

I went out last night with my Atheist, Liberal friend, and a group of her Atheist, Liberal friends.  SO REFRESHING!  At 46, I was the 'baby' of the group.  I loved being able to speak about anything without having to use the edit-button on my mouth (not that I use it that much anyway!) lol.

Have a great hump-day everyone!~ Melinda
