The best thing about the original jam sessionSubmitted by Michael Nystrom on Wed, 06/11/2014 - 23:17
The best thing about the original jam session (which by the way now is closed) is that everyone voluntarily checked their weapons at the door. They came in to chill, and share.
That was the best part. It was healing and transformative, not the usual fighting with each other like dogs, and pushing agendas of various factions.
The bright spot about it is that it was fun. We need more fun around here. Otherwise it feels like walking in here to DP world and getting clobbered in every direction from bad news.
Why do people love to focus on bad news? If you can choose to shift your focus, why not shift it to something good? Encouragement. Sharing. Kind words for one another.
The Jam Session was a transformational part of the Daily Paul.
I hold out the hope that there truly are more creative people like her here.
We're boiling them down.
The crowd is getting intimate.

Addendum: I would be remiss if I did not mention that we now have a new Jam Session thread, headed by JohnCarter444: Time for My Nightly Jam Session II thread.
Not to mention Cyril's Eargasms thread.
