Before we get into the topic at hand, we will quickly discuss a related topic; President Donald Trump began mentioning and nicknaming Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (U.S. House member from January 3, 2013 – September 10, 2018) AFTER Trump learned that Paul RINO Ryan (U.S. House member from January 3, 1999 to January 3, 2019, and Speaker from October 29, 2015 – January 3, 2019) and Ron were spending a lot of time talking strategy.
Our normal disclaimer here: we already expressed our preference long ago for a Trump / DeSantis ticket in 2024. This doesn’t change anything. We will reevaluate if the situation requires it. Among other times, we also discussed Ron DeSantis HERE and HERE.
We prior discussed Ryan HERE and just detailed some of his actions since leaving the House HERE. He sorta kinda still controls it in a way as his former ‘right hand man’ Kevin ‘54% conservative rating’ McCarthy is now Speaker, which we detailed HERE (as part 4 of 4 straight days on the Speaker vote, with the other three conveniently linked there). Shameless self-promotion, because if we don’t do it nobody will. Phil Hellmuth would be SO proud of us!
Seriously, that guy never stops talking about himself or promoting himself. Great poker player, possibly a nice guy, but shut the fuck up about yourself (and who you know) already and stop jumping into other people’s interviews on TV. It isn’t all about you guy! And we realize that nobody is going to go read all 4 of those speaker vote articles now, but you could just look at the memes. Those were top notch too!
Since 1967 Disney has had a ‘special tax district’ (STD) status for their theme park and surrounding undeveloped area in Florida. Walt Disney himself pushed for it during early development of the area. He died in 1966. There is a longstanding rumor that he was frozen upon death. A more recent rumor is that the ‘Frozen’ movie was named that so that when people searched for “disney frozen” that would come up instead of the original rumor. We’ll but stock in that!
To this day, it is a mystery as to who actually gave Disney the STD, and it really doesn’t matter now. Rumor is it was a group effort. Possibly on a train…or Monorail. And you can’t get more selfish than Disney, having an STD and not wanting anyone else to have an STD too!
Within it’s STD, Disney has been grooming kids almost since the beginning (the animators used to hide things in the images, and also are known to have made porn cartoons), but it had become painfully obvious they were doing it lately, and luckily DeSantis decided to confront them. Part of that is ending Disney’s STD status.
The new Law changes the “Reedy Creek Improvement District”, which Disney self-governed (aka STD), into the “Central Florida Tourism Oversight District”, and gives DeSantis the authority to appoint the 5 members of the oversight board, which for some reason Disney was allowed to do before for their STD.
Can you say ‘bribes’? The Florida politicians who gave that STD to Disney can.
Under the STD, Disney was basically a state within a state. Now Disney also has to follow all Florida regulations, which effectively ends the district. Is it still a district when it has no ‘near autonomous’ abilities after decades? This STD is now an STDINO. Plus, Disney retains all prior debt from the old STD structure. Ha! The DNA deniers are now nut-less.
Losing the STD really hurts Disney, which just laid off 7,000 people as part of a larger cost-savings plan. Under the STD, Disney had the ability to act just as a local government would (taxes, bonds, police and fire), with the added option to build a nuclear power plant if they wanted one.
“Disney’s going to pay its fair share of taxes and Disney’s going to honor the debt and that’s exactly what this proposed piece of legislation will do. There’s a new sheriff in town, and accountability will be the order of the day.”, DeSantis said.
Recently, Disney (while still in their STD) and their child-like adult followers had gone after DeSantis for opposing their grooming and support of teachers who groom in government schools (AKA gubmint skewls). Even getting rid of fairly new CEO Bob Chapek and bringing back Bob Iger in November, 2022, to retake the position he had just given up on February 25, 2020, after 14 years on the job.
The only thing DeSantis and other elected Republicans didn’t get that they originally wanted was the dissolution of the district entirely. Baby steps. They can get that after the next election, OR after the next misstep by Disney.
