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.

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

Thanks Joan. :)  Yes, it has 2 of my favorite things; a cozy chair, and a cat!

Melinda, delightful tea pot. That should spark one to life walking into the kitchen after a good night's sleep and seeing that cheery pot.

Tony, when I see Heavenly Blue morning glories I think of my grandmother Denoo and her chicken pen, kept so beautifully fertilized by all the chickens that wandered in and out of the patch. Thanks for the memories.

Thanks Ian!  Ann Coulter is a repulsive, low-class, fear-mongering, hateful, mean-spirited, bitch.  Just to put it mildly. :)

Comment by Ian Mason on August 27, 2012 at 4:08pm

That's a great pot!

I  don't know who Ann Coulter is but she must be a dimwit. Trouble is dimwits can be dangerous.

I was more shocked by a public figure repeating (and tacitly approving) that blatant misogyny in 2012.

Pat's comment in that thread points out that the right-wing extremists want a one-party state, a "permanent Republican majority".

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 27, 2012 at 3:38pm

I guess after all this time I shouldn't be surprised at what Ann Coulter and her ilk say, but I really am surprised time after time at how low they can go.  It really is quite unbelievable. 

Comment by sk8eycat on August 27, 2012 at 3:31pm

@Grinning Cat: Is Ann Coulter still alive?  (Was she ever?) The last time I saw a photo of her she looked like a cadaver.

Home again, Home again, Jiggety-Jig.  lol, I just remember my Grandma saying that.  I'm sure it's from a children's poem.  Anyway, home from Green Bay, and here is my teapot!~ Melinda

Ugh! A new low in political discourse: "If we took away women's right to vote..." (Bryan Fischer on Twitter yesterday, quoting Ann Coulter) I've posted on it in Feminist Atheists.
