A back from Redding GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, weekend celebration of life for one of my beloved Ju Jitsu Professors Jane Carr. Best of all was able to hang out with my Jitsu family from So. Cal…love those guys!
Monday Musings Ed-vise today. Cause it’s MONDAY! So GET AFTER IT!
Well, good ol’ Ron Desantis and his band of merry men managed to fire the warning shot at Disney! And the press is ALL OVER IT!
And when the press is all over it, that is when you MUST do a bit more research to see how this will play out.
See, Disney made the mistake of actually putting real money into political campaigns. That was their first mistake. Should have NEVER contributed to ANYONE’S campaign. Either party. Stick to fantasy and stay in your lane.
So, then, Florida decided on their school bills commonly known as “Don’t Say Gay.” Disney Corp came out and said they don’t like it. Of course this was AFTER they had already contributed to people who were FOR IT!
So, Florida legislature decided to strip Disney (and others) of their self governing status. That status is more or less a thing that allows the company to build their own infrastructure without burdening the local populace with additional taxes. Companies like Disney could build roads for their parks without going through a bunch of permitting stuff IF they shouldered the costs.
The press has taken this way up the flag pole and created all kinds of speculation about Disney leaving and losing it’s self governing privilege.
But they miss a HUGE KEY THING: this law is subject to the people of Osceola and Orange counties AGREEING to it!
Yup, the law will go on a ballot measure for both counties. The measure will go to the public of those counties. Those people will then decide if they want to incur a TWO BILLION DOLLAR DEBT. Yes, that’s BILLION with a “B.” I will put my money on a “NO” vote coming down the pipe.
Did the Florida legislature know this would happen? I bet they did. So did Desantis.
Why pass it? It appeals to the base of the newest version of Republicans. I’ll come up with a cool name for them soon.
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember the state known best for it’s extra small soft drinks is…MINNESOTA! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
