    Yes, but you've actually read what's going on.

    Laura. Barbara is either W's mom or daughter. If he married either of them, that would be sick.

    No. Now that you have posted the two sentences side by side, can you not see the difference?

    Actually, 1950s Disney. The entire movie that the Br'er rabbit animations came from never was released on VHS or DVD, but portions of the animation and some live action were fairly common even growing up in the 80s. If you've heard "zip-a-dee-doo-da" before, it's from the same thing. Or if you've rode on Splash Mountain at Disney World

    It's unfortunate that brair rabbit never was released on home video.

    So, when a black person is involved in a situation that just gets stickier the more they try to deal with, we can start calling it a superglue baby - of course someone will have to write a new story about this superglue baby. However, when a white person tries to deal with a situation that only gets stickier the more they try to deal with it, we can still call that situation a tar baby. I personally find that opinion to be the real idiocy. The term fits perfectly, use it. Use it as often as possible, because, oike I said previously, I love irking liberals.

    If Michelle Bachmann's reference was to the Price of Gas/Barrel of Oil, I hope someone pulls her to the side and let's her know that the President really has no say so in that matter.

    I know the reasons why it wast released. If you knew the story of what Walt Disney himself did for the actor that played uncle reamus you wouldn't mind it being released either.
