Is Desantis tired of having all his ‘legislation’ turn out to be just paper?

How’s the Twitter case going? Did he win?

Floridians are getting wise to this scam artist and con-man....who tries to manipulate the MAGA-masses with made up "faux outrage issues" while waging war with a company that sends $18 Billion a year to Florida state coffers...

Send him back to a job he's most qualified at - corner used car salesman...

The law eliminating the Reedy Creek Improvement District is very likely to be ruled illegal by a court. There is already at least one lawsuit against the law. I suspect bond holders will sue soon as at least one 2018 utility bond issue has a term that prohibits the bonds from being retired before 2018 and Florida law prohibits the elimination of any tax authority, which is exactly what Reedy Creek is, as long as there is outstanding debt. The state cannot pay those 2018 utility bonds off before 2028.

Right wingers are correct in supporting the use of government authority to punish Disney for exercising their freedom of speech on the government to which they pay taxes. This freedom to speak freely must be removed and they be censored by government authority.

You mean liberal voters, nothing new, they would say that of course.

who tries to manipulate the MAGA-masses with made up "faux outrage issues"

No, issues that are important to most people, this is why the Dems have a hard time getting anywhere in that State, no wonder Biden continues to send illegals to that State.

And what gives the rat the right to tell my kids what a woman is and how my kids should understand transgender rights, the rat is not the parent, I decide it, not the magic kingdom.

Thanks for admitting Florida is full of liberal voters....just like Georgia it will turn Blue soon...due to DeSantis and his Mickey Mouse war...which could bankrupt the state...

Made-up, fake, faux issues to manipulate the weak-minded....which they fall for....sad...

You don’t need Disney to indoctrinate your kids. That’s your job.

Nope.

"Florida's continued move from battleground to red"

 Republicans have gone from trailing Democrats to matching Democrats to now widening the gap. Democrats had a 124,000-voter advantage on Election Day in 2020. Florida’s Division of Elections reported that, as of the end of March, there are now 5.14 million registered Republicans versus 5.03 million registered Democrats. Yes, these are active voters only, but that means the GOP edge has now grown to nearly 112,000, and it keeps getting larger every day.

You dont think Disney regrets their wokeness now?

They should be sued by their share holders.

Down 30% year to date, the stock has fallen almost 20% in thirty days, while giving up close to 40% in six months. And if that horizon is expanded by one year, Disney stock has fallen 40%, trailing the S&P 500 in each span.

Lawsuit by Democrats? thrown out

A federal judge threw out a lawsuit by three Florida residents who claim Governor Ron DeSantis trampled on Walt Disney Co.’s freedom of speech, finding numerous holes in their filing and ruling the company can fight its own battle.

And how much of that is the stock market being down this year?

It's pretty disgusting, and frankly, authoritarian, to try and punish companies because you don't like how they're exercising their first amendment rights. What's with right wing cancel culture?

They should be sued by their share holders.

Lmao Why? Investment returns aren't guaranteed.

Now Mickey Mouse is getting cancelled.

Thanks for reminding us of that Biden economic failure of the stock market being down the entire year, lower than when Trump left.

Investment returns aren't guaranteed.

Public Companies have obligations to keep the interests of their shareholders as a primary consideration when making decisions and taking actions. Didnt you learn anything from Twitter?

"Disney stock has fallen 40%, trailing the S&P 500 in each span."

Yeah, stocks don't always go up. Sometimes they go down. With the exception of energy stocks, much of the market is down this year.

lol One man doesn't control the stock market, at least not in a free market.

A fiduciary duty. Yet I see no indication they've failed to keep investor's interests in mind. Companies make decisions sometimes, and we don't always agree with them, but that doesn't mean they're not acting in good faith towards shareholders.

Yep, thanks Joe! inflation is "down" to "only" 8.3%.

Time to celebrate!

so getting into a culture war with the state government who has the ability to take away your special tax status is a great idea?

going against a guy who does culture war extremely well, who is popular and well liked in his state?

Thats just dumb and in bad faith to your investors. They should be sued. Luckily I dont/wouldnt own them, or I would definitely be a party to that one.

Black, you're doing a good job of explaining why authoritarian/fascism is bad.

"A guy who does culture war well. " lol Much to the dismay of rightists like DeSantis, corporations have first amendment protections, and I think it is despicable for wannabes like DeSantis to try and punish them for doing so.

They should be sued. Luckily I dont/wouldnt own them, or I would definitely be a party to that one.

But they're not. Because it'd be a pretty stupid lawsuit, and Disney would easily win.

Florida is a great place to live with excellent Ultra MAGA style leadership. shout out to Matt Gaetz!

Getting more red every election, that is why Dems are crying about the redistricting plan.

Good luck with the conservative led Supreme Court in Florida, I guess?

Yes, good luck with conservative (surely unbiased) Supreme Court, with a court case that doesn't even exist.
