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.

Carl, a minimum wage fast-food joint is NOT my idea of promoting job growth.  It's a dead end for desperate talented people whose real work has been outsourced to Asia where life is cheap.

But you know that.

IMO there is nothing more hypocritical than a public xian...

I signed the petition as well, Patricia.  The first Chik-fil-a opened up here in Chicago last year, but not without controversy and a fight.  They finally got their way and approval.  Many city counsel members vocally apposed allowing a company with a history of discriminatory polices to do business here, but they were also blasted for standing in the way of free market and for stifling job growth.

Monday already? Send in the clowns.

Thanks for the petition link, Patricia. Signed.

I loved your cartoons, Ian and booklover.

Patricia, signed it and passed it along to about 20 friends who still have open minds after all these years.

Comment by Patricia on June 7, 2014 at 2:49pm

I've never seen anything happen here in my small city with the gay population, & I most certainly don't want to see anything start, here or in the rest of the country because of a damn food joint!!!

Comment by booklover on June 7, 2014 at 2:39pm
Signed it Patricia! They opened one in my city and I won't even drive past it. Makes my blood boil.
