But Disantis made it very clear he was taking this action because of their speech.
They have a right to free speech.  They don't have a right to government subsidies.  Keep sticking up for tax breaks for big corporations.

Again, he made it perfectly clear he was taking this action because of their speech. Remember when you thought you supported free speech when you thought it meant private companies should be forced to spread Russian disinformation? 😂

The agreement that Disney and the government of Florida had was one that had worked well for years. Disney operated its property almost like a municipality (with various tax and land use implications related to that), and Florida did not have to worry about providing various services (such as fire services, road maintenance, etc.) It was (in my opinion) a win-win for both sides.

Then Ron Deathsentence decided "My bigotry is more important than a good deal", saw that Disney was saying "gay people are not the devil" and decided to blow up the Disney agreement.

As usual more complete and utter nonsense.  Yes, the agreement did work for years, but that doesn't mean it must go on forever.  The problem with Disney is that they started to produce questionable material for children, and the government didn't support an ongoing partnership because of it.  Disney is free to pursuit any direction it wishes.  But the government is not required to continue any ongoing partnership.  Stop defending special treatment for billion dollar corporations, just because you like them politically.

Yeah, I figured asking you to substantiate your baseless allegation would shut you up. But I'm glad to see you agreeing that big corporations are a scourge that need to be dismantled and nationalized. 😂

Nope.  No need to nationalize as we donít live in a communist system.  Not carving out special exemptions is all Iím asking for.

Funny how you were fine with that arrangement before they exercised their right to free speech.

But I accept your humble apology for lying about them creating sexual material for children. You must be feeling pretty embarrassed for being such a weasel. 😂

Itís not just questionable material, itís also about their racist employee training, based on toxic material like White Fragility.

If youíre gonna teach and promote and racism, you may find some governments apprehensive about continued partnerships.

Well, for one they opposed the "don't say gay" bill.

I mean, its a sign of the end-times if those homosexuals actually get treated like real people! Next thing you know children will actually fail to see gay people as weirdos and perverts.

In yet another sign of the incompetence of Meatball Ron Deathsentence...

From: https://www.npr.org/2023/03/30/1167042594/disney-desantis-board-reedy-creek-charles
...the former Reedy Creek Development board signed its power back to Disney before leaving office, a binding declaration that doesn't expire until England's monarchy dies out....Basically, the board loses "the majority of its ability to do anything beyond maintain the roads and maintain basic infrastructure," as board member Ron Peri put it, according to local news outlet Click Orlando.

So what do you have?
- A governor that is trying to implement bigoted policies which are unpopular across the united states
- A ham-fisted attempt to cower Disney because they happened to speak out against Republican bigotry (which, of course, exposes the hypocrisy of the republicans, who claim to like "small government" but are quite willing to have government interfere in business and personal lives)
- And now, we find out that he and his Klan were incompetent in actually handling the legal aspects of the power transfer itself.
