Theme Parks; a Conservative and Liberal's Paradise
Daniel EtcheberrySubmitted by
Published: August 11, 2014 at 11:50 AM I'm very liberal, and I have a friend who is very conservative; we disagree on many issues, but both of us share the same passion for theme parks.

From Robert Niles on August 11, 2014 at 2:14 PMSome slogans...
Walt Disney World: Bringing Republicans and Democrats together to complain about Fastpass+ since 2014.
Universal Orlando: Where people of all beliefs can come together to wait for the Gringotts ride to start running again.
Disneyland: Where it doesn't matter whom you vote for, just that you have an Annual Pass and keep talking about how much better things used to be.
From Tim Hillman on August 12, 2014 at 5:03 AMDisney World: Where liberals have to spend their own money, and the 1% get the behind the scenes tour so they don't have to wait in line with the proletariat.
From Court E on August 12, 2014 at 11:22 AMI see you purposefully left out the moderates out of your InclusionLand... Nice!
From Daniel Etcheberry on August 12, 2014 at 12:50 PMI just wanted to show how theme parks appeals to a wide range of people. Of course moderates also enjoy theme parks.
From Brian Emery on August 12, 2014 at 1:08 PMJust Imagine the tan man without a plan - Mr. John Boehner waiting to get on It's a small world ride....
Ya Know - because this line is somehow Obamas fault..

Hersheypark: Because who doesn't like chocolate? (Swiss and Belgians not admitted.)
Legoland: Celebrate the building blocks of democracy!
SeaWorld: Fighting climate change deniers on one side and anti-animal-captivity activists on the other. Please come visit us before we're left with no friends at all.
Busch Gardens: Where liberals and conservatives agree -- they both liked us better when we offered free beer.
Canada's Wonderland: Yeah, we are laughing at you, Americans.
Knott's Berry Farm: Whether you support Garfield or Hancock, you're welcome here!
Six Flags: With conservative theming and liberal parking fees, we're open to all.
Carowinds: We're all about straddling the line. (That one was terrible; forgive me!)
From Tim Hillman on August 13, 2014 at 4:46 AMLoved the Carowinds slogan, Robert. +5
From Anon Mouse on August 13, 2014 at 10:57 AMTheme parks are a Liberal's Paradise. Most are owned by Liberal media corporations like Disney and Comcast, but fortunately, they haven't turned the theme parks into liberal heathens and instead are largely conservative in appeal to the general public.
One thing that's clear, look at how Disney treats its workers and ask yourself could it be better?
From Chad H on August 14, 2014 at 6:24 PMI don't think anyone can honestly describe a major non-pubic-broadcaster media corporation these days as "liberal"....
From Tim Hillman on August 15, 2014 at 4:54 AMTypo of the year goes to Chad!
From Anon Mouse on August 16, 2014 at 5:05 PMReally? You can't call major media corporations as Liberal?
There is ONLY one corporation that gives a fair shake to conservatives and that one is FOX. Disney owns ABC and you can tell their liberal bias with The View.
From Eli G on August 17, 2014 at 12:22 AM@Anon Mouse
I don't want to offend you, and you're entitled to your opinion, but saying that FOX "gives a fair shake to conservatives" is a pretty big understatement.
From Tim Hillman on August 17, 2014 at 5:11 AMActually, Eli, Anon made a very accurate statement, and the viewership numbers bear that out.
If you don't believe that the bias of most reporters and editors who vote overwhelmingly Democrat doesn't affect their presentation of the news, then you are kidding yourself.
