    I spent a fun-filled three days at Disney World this past week. I had a notification on my email about a Gun Broker auction that was about to end, so I selected the "View Auction" button and after awhile was shown a screen which informed me that my host had blocked that website. I tried to get on from various venues, hotels and restaurants on Disney property, with the same result. I found that to be very interesting and thought I would pass it along.
    (Almost forgot to mention that it was on my I-phone when I was using Disney WIFI.)

    Guns are evil and gun owners are dangerous creeps. It's the New Amerika. Get used to it.

    I was thinking about taking the grand kids to Disney World this fall. If they have gotten this bad, we will just stay home. I don't spend my money knowingly with business's, organizations, or people who are anti-gun! Some one needs to go check old Walts grave, he's probably kicked his dirt off.

    Blocking certain websites because of content is not new. The county park where the shooting range is located where I shoot here blocks any firearms related websites because it's a county wide computer system.

    In "The Happiest Place On Earth" ...( As Disney likes to describe itself)...BIG BROTHER will decide what is in your best interest to view,to know,how to act, and ultimately what to say.
    Don't THAT just make you feel all warm and fuzzy..!!!

    Try the above web site - it is a 're-direct' and should by-pass most site blocking software...

    It's Disneys house so it's their rules. Same as your house, your rules.

    I was on the Disney world property about 7-8 years ago with my daughters field hockey team. We went to main Street Disney and while in a Gift shop, Not too many of those there. I was approached by a rather large clean cut fellow and asked if I had a knife in my pocket. I said I had a small Swiss army knofe on my key ring.. I was asked to either surrender it or leave the park. I left the park. I assume the security guard is noe working for TSA as a Supervisor.

    I have carried this swiss army every where I go Except on planes for the last 20 some years. When I travel and check bags it goes in my shaving kit until I arrive.

    Go Mickey.

    Curiously, the shooting gallery at Frontierland is still operating.

    When my kids got old enough to "understand" I UN-educated them about Disney.

    They liked the cartoons and the characters, but now know and understand the "undertones" or if you like, the indoctrination of Disney.

    They know where the phrase, Bambi killer, originated now and why.

    Ole Walt was a pretty good guy, not perfect but good. I grew up watching and knowing some of Gordon Eastman's family. First introduction to Eastmans films, of all places, Jr. High school!! Stored a horse trailer one winter for a Family member, got paid by getting to watch EVERY one made!!!! Better then any outdoor channel!!!

    Disney wanted Eastmans films way back when, what stands out about the man Eastman was he Refused. Why, in the effort to acquire the film rights Disney wanted the "locations" of where he filmed. Gordon said NO because he knew once word got out "people" would "rush" out and destory what was there.

    Yes Disney is anti gun and anti hunting, was not so at the beginning. So what changed, OUR Educational system DID. We are in the grasp of "never will have to fire a shot" communism or as our PC crowd prefers "Progressive".

    Don't you just LOVE History!!!

    I was in Disney World this past week same as you. We stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Disney employees found a gun someone had lost on a ride in Animal Kingdom.

    Disney is "Hollywood". This doesn't surprise me in the least. But they are a private company. You have the right to withhold future business if you are truly offended.

    HSLDS,

    Thanks for the link. I can view TS.com from work but we have the Barracuda web filter and am unable to check out most gunning sites. Now all is well.

    As mentioned above, Disney definitely has their own agenda when it comes to family values. Right, wrong, or indifferent, Disney has been a long time supporter of gay rights, Disney through their movies have shaped the beliefs of an entire generation which raised kids and those kids are now raising kids!

    "Bambi Killer," yal, the human personification of cartoon animals has hugely helped create a nation of weenies that think hamburger comes from the supermarket.

    I challenge you guys to come up with Disney/ Pixar movies where both parents are alive and stay alive in the movie, as in one parent doesn't killed in front of the little animal/person or there is only one parent to begin with throughout the story...

    There are a few, but not many.

    I will start, I copied this off some other forum and I don't know that I disagree completely other than Peter Pan and the lost boys didn't have parents, but I guess that is a fine thread... so here is the copy and paste, out of all the Disney/Pixar movies, how many parents are alive and mentioned?

    <i> Peter Pan, 101 Dalmatians, Mulan and The Lady and The Tramp. With all others one or both parents either dies, is already dead or was never mentioned to start with…,</I>


    Offhand I can't think of any others, can you guys?

    What is that pattern of movies over 30 plus years teaching our youth?
