Wow, way to punish Disney there.

/I also wonder if they're preparing to sue as this is clearly a retaliatory move by the government.

Bootleg: Wow, way to punish Disney there.

/I also wonder if they're preparing to sue as this is clearly a retaliatory move by the government.


I mean, the sponsors of this legislation SAID as uch, out loud, so it is clearly a 1a violation, but I think Disney will hurt the legislators and the Governor FAR worse by NOT appealing this and letting them explain to Angry tax payers why their property taxes and utility bills doubled overnight.    Then maybe to twist the knife sue Florida's Gov for damages for violating their civil rights to add to the money being paid out by FL because of this idiot law.

Not to mention Disney is one of the major reasons Florida doesn't have an income tax and DeSantis just shot himself in both feet before his big Presidential Moment.

So they kill Disney and destroy a Dem voting metro area at the same time? That's a win-win for the GOP.

So Disney is gonna stop donating to R's who supported the bill, right?

Also, they'll let a Democrat become governor so when this all goes down they get the blame.

...and if you mention HetroSexual couples in childrends books. This bill would prohibit that.
Like no mention of Mommy/Daddy because that's instructing a child about sexuality.

/republicans are really twisted about sex. Sure...do taxes etc. But WTF GUYS...everytime there's a GOP person on the screen, they're just ranting about gays, sex, and soon Jews and Catholics. Because you know that's up stream waiting to be deployed.

Presidential debate should be fun.

"Because of you the county has to pay for Fire, EMS, and utilities that Disney was paying for, lets Disney pay $105 million less in annual property taxes, and puts the state on the hook for $2 billion in bonds issued by Disney. Would you call this a "success" and is this an example of how you will run the country?"

$105 mill a year in tax cuts as the punishment for being gay-friendly.

Disney can find that change wishing well coins and sofas.
Like "oh no...not 105 mil"
they get that from a imbedded commercial on a MCU "Wanda Vision" commercial 29 second header.

They're not a legitimate political party anymore. They've gone fascist, and parted from reality, so debating people who care about facts would be ridiculous and pointless.
 
2022-04-21 10:10:30 PM  
You're all assuming DeStupid cares about any consequences of this. He gets to attack an enemy and strut around for the Republican base, they get to cheer and hoot over stigginit, and when the hammer falls he'll be busy trying to become president so he can repeat the process on a national level. The right will gladly go down in flames along with the rest of Florida because the libs will be so mad.

Even if we admit that in theory the company shouldn't be getting special treatment, in practice Gov. DeShiatebag is fond of empty, badly thought out political gestures, and this is a prime example. Because in practice it doesn't do what DeShiatebag says it will, and just punishes normal people.

At least they can say that they stuck it to the libs even though they are sticking it to everyone. There must be a couple of libs living in that country that will have to pay higher taxes.
