marie--in what way? in that i freakin would hate spending my day in a big freakin fantasy world looking at dumbhead characters who i would rather strip of their costumes and chat up the individual underneath on reality based life issues? btw--i love your posts
When you have a kid you have to watch at least one Disney movie a week till they start to outgrow it. It's not fun.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Thanks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="">
well he is dead now anyway oatmeal--however what does disney support that is bad??? love your post though<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="">
marie--do you have kids? i totally do not watch movies with kids and would rather cut my arm off if i had too!!! we do not value tv watching and the kids really could care less. maybe once every couple of months i will let them watch monsters inc. this is the only movie we have and we have it because it was free. but still only every couple of months--like if someone is sick.
I don't know if Disney's marketed toys and clothes are made with fair or unfair practices, or even where they come from...<br><br><br><br>
For all we know, those poor kids up in Neverland are under slave labor right now. Hook finally got smart, and teamed up with Monsanto, so he has financial backing, and since Neverland did not support the US when we attacked Iraq, we are now shunning them like we are France. Meanwhile, Monsanto is plowing up the fields and marshes, and spraying Fairycides all over to rid the land of those pesky tiny glowing flying women.<br><br><br><br>
I loved Disney growing up! But now, the plots of the new stuff seems way too grown up, politically correct, and just not funny. I still get a kick out of the old, origional Mickey and Pluto and Donald cartoons. Those are so classic in their simplicity, but now kids find them boring.<br><br><br><br>
Why watch Foghorn Leghorn's antics when you can watch South Park and learn how to cuss?<br><br><br><br>
Ideally, I would raise my children with a television, a VCR, but no channels. I grew up like that, and hated it, but now I'm so glad I did. I still rented plenty of movies, and had cartoons on tape.<br><br><br><br>
So I was not exposed to commercials! Thank god! And my parents were smart enough to give me what I wanted to see, my older sister would tape saturday morning stuff for me, but they never introduced me to new things...and because of that, I was happy with the Ninja Turtles, Duck Tales, and the Price is Right. Yes, that's right, it's not a cartoon, but I loved it for some reason.<br><br><br><br>
Unplug your cable and start collecting good movies and cartoons. Besides, that way you'll still have them for future generations, or whenever you feel nostalgic <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="">.<br><br><br><br>

Hey Oatmeal-Wasn't Walt Disney a nazi sympathizer or am I just thinking of Henry Ford?
Disney ownes the Mighty Ducks NOOOOOOOOO! I do not want them to win ANY MORE GAMES! I do not wanna see Mickey skating with the Stanley Cup, its just wrong. I mean they named the team the "mighty ducks" cmon!
Smedley: I'm heading for bed, and don't want to get into it right now, but they are a chemical company known for creating many chemicals, pesticides, and are a leader in genetic modification of seeds. They created Roundup Ready and many others that were later proven to be harmful to both humans, and the environment.<br><br><br><br>
Their seeds cannot reproduce, so farmers that use their GM seeds are forced to buy the seeds repeatedly every year, rather than saving seed from their own crop.<br><br><br><br>
Check out <a href="http://www.organicconsumers.org" target="_blank">www.organicconsumers.org</a> and look around for links related to Monsanto. Also check out books such as Fatal Harvest and Our Stolen Future, relating to chemicals in the environment, industrial ariculture, etc.<br><br><br><br>
Disney has contracted the production of their merchandise (like clothing, toys, etc.) out to sweatshop operations all over the world. <a href="http://www.corpwatch.com" target="_blank">www.corpwatch.com</a> probably has some info for you to read about that.
