"We lose control over everything other than to maintain the roads and maintain the infrastructure."
"We gave governmental control to Disney."


(BBC)A board picked by Florida's governor to oversee Disney's Orlando theme parks says it has been neutered by a last-minute contract with a royal clause.

Disney ran the district for over half a century until Florida legislators punished the conglomerate for slamming state laws regulating sex education.

But the new board says its authority has been bypassed by restrictive covenants that cite King Charles III.

Such so-called royal lives clauses have been inserted into legal documentation since the late 17th Century, and they are still found in some contracts in the UK, though rarely in the US.

The 151-page Florida agreement also states that no "fanciful characters" owned by Disney, including Mickey Mouse, can be used by the board. The use of the name Disney is also banned.

Disney made a political enemy of the governor after criticising the state's Parental Rights in Education Act, signed by Mr DeSantis last April.



Signed into effect on February 8, just as the Florida House passed the legislation to take control of Reedy Creek Improvement District, the new Developer Agreement gives Disney significant control of the RCID landing and prevents the new board making any changes to the agreement.

At today's special meeting, where the board discussed the new Developer Agreement, one member said, "We lose control over everything other than to maintain the roads and maintain the infrastructure."

Board member Brian Aungst said, "We gave governmental control to Disney."


There’s also another safeguard. For as long as Disney owns property within 10 miles of the Reedy Creek Improvement District, the agreement will stand in force.

    Gosh, I thought I’d see more anger at Mickey Mouse from some quarters. I am hearing a Goofy laugh from somewhere.


  2. by HatetheSwamp on March 30, 2023 10:43 am

    I'm amused.

    That gay Guy you'd never heard of has been tracking the progressive SwampMedia's trashing of DeSantis and the subtle promotion of Trump. Gay Guy claims y'nes desperately want to crush DeSantis so you can continue to practice TDS.

    Y'nes are sooooooooo d@ng cute. Silly, but cute.

    Ah, OD, a little BABYLON BEE lingo, there. Nice!

    very common down here. Means the same thing.

    I'm still wondering how much the committee got bribed to do this. I'd love to check their financials, or to see if they all of a sudden moved in to a multi-million-dollar house on that site.

    The good guys, we progressives, are honestly enjoying the antics of the Bobbsey twins, Trump and DeSantis, as they make fools of each other, and DeSantis’ Disney fiasco was just frosting on the cake !! 👍

    Meanwhile we and the rest of the country will just continue to sit back and enjoy the show !! 🍻


  8. by HatetheSwamp on March 31, 2023 6:51 am

    I'm not picking up on much of y'nes in "enjoy" mode. From what I've seen, you're more angry than ever...as you find more reason to be pi$$ed.


  9. by islander on March 31, 2023 7:03 am

    What YOU can’t pick up matters not one whit to us, in fact, it only adds to our enjoyment ! 🤣


  10. by HatetheSwamp on March 31, 2023 7:07 am

    I watch progressive SwampMedia. I know how continually everyone is pi$$ed. My guess is that you do find joy in anger.

    It's one reason I found being progressive unbearable.


  11. by islander on March 31, 2023 7:29 am

    Oh my! You watch television!! 😁

    That's why you think we are so sad and angry that Trump lost the election, and we are so angry that he was just indicted by a grand jury, and why it hurts us so much to know that he will have to appear in court Tues and turn himself in, and we are so angry to know that this is just the beginning of the end for him and his supporters. We are also very angry that DeSantis made a fool of himself with his Disney fiasco and...Oh! Wait a minute! I’m not a conservative Republican! That’s what "you all" are so upset about! We progressives ”the good guys”, are overjoyed about all this ! But of course, it's not surprising that in your state of mind you cannot understand why we would be !!! 🤣

    isle,

    I honestly don't get why you bother lying to me straight to my, uh, phone about myself.

    I ain't angry nor sad about any of this. I'm, as po'd say, EFFIN amused and entertained. I despise Trump. If, somehow, Bragg sticks him with a felony, I'll meet you somewhere between Maine and Pennsylvania for a celebratory meal. 50/50. I ain't payin.

    I'm amused at all the people on the right who are rushing to Trump's defense...

    ...but, I'm bustin a gut over your side, which is getting exactly the substance of your wet dreams...

    ...yet, somehow, are more angry today than yesterday.

    I'm living large at the moment.

    Bahahahahahahahahahaha, ahhhhhhhhhhh.

    What “lie” LoL !! Do you think what I said about you conservative Republicans being angry that we good guys are so happy about and are enjoying all the developments in the political news was a lie? 

Or...Are you now going to tell me how happy you are that your guy, Trump, lost the election? We were and are very happy about that! 😁 We’re also very happy to see your party self destruct since you all voted for those Republican politicians who are destroying and making a mockery of what used to be GOP..The Grand Old Party. 



    And we’re happy to see DeSantis making a fool of himself ! 👏

    Like I said...
    It’s your unfortunate state of mind that makes you say things like we the good guys, “are more angry today than yesterday.”

    I identity as a Republican. I do not identity as a conservative.


  15. by oldedude on March 31, 2023 1:28 pm
    Interesting. I identify as a conservative libertarian and not Republican, although that's who I vote with most of the time. I've lived outside of the states enough to know we can't isolate, although we need to keep that identity that is uniquely "American."

    isle is a neo leftist. Meaning he, like most leftists, doesn't have a clue about our constitution or laws except where they think they can cherry-pick one "thing" and avoid all other factors. They pluck out something out of a European country and think we have the same laws. They whine incessantly about thing "ought to be MY way" forgetting there are other people in this country.

    They are also so dogmatic that anything except for their facet of the world doesn't exist. Like indy, they spend 17 days in Europe 40 years ago and say they've "traveled the world."

    You can identify with whatever you wish, Hate! I have no problem with what people identify themselves as !!!


  17. by oldedude on March 31, 2023 4:40 pm
    And yet, you were VERY specific about how you identified the people you mocked. I don't get it. Either you care or you don't. Choose one and stick to it.


  18. by HatetheSwamp on April 1, 2023 2:51 am

    Y'know, OD, I think that J6 obsession is a separate strain of TDS.

    "In July of 2022, 42% of self-described Democrats described themselves as moderates or conservatives, opposite 58% who considered themselves liberals. The gap is even bigger in the Republican Party, where 77% identified as conservatives, whereas only 23% said of themselves that they were moderates or liberals. According to the survey, this makes Republicans in fact a whole lot more conservative than Democrats are liberal." `Forbes

    "In American politics, a conservative Democrat is a member of the Democratic Party with conservative political views, or with views that are conservative compared to the positions taken by other members of the Democratic Party. Traditionally, conservative Democrats have been elected to office from the Southern states, rural areas, the Rust Belt, and the Midwest.[1] In 2019, the Pew Research Center found that 14% of Democratic and Democratic-leaning registered voters identify as conservative or very conservative, 38% identify as moderate, and 47% identify as liberal or very liberal.[2]

    21st century conservative Democrats are similar to liberal Republican counterparts, in that both became political minorities after their respective political parties underwent a major political realignment, which began to gain speed in 1964. Prior to 1964, both parties had their liberal, moderate, and conservative wings, each of them influential in both parties. During this period, conservative Democrats formed the Democratic half of the conservative coalition. After 1964, the conservative wing assumed a greater presence in the Republican Party, although it did not become the mainstay of the party until the nomination of Ronald Reagan in 1980. The Democratic Party retained its conservative wing through the 1970s with the help of urban machine politics while blue-collar workers still aligned with the Democrats. This political realignment was mostly complete by 1980.

    After 1980, the Republicans became a mostly conservative party, with conservative leaders such as Newt Gingrich, Trent Lott, and Tom DeLay. The Democrats, while keeping their liberal base intact, grew their centrist wing, the New Democrats, in the 1990s, with leaders such as Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and Evan Bayh. In the U.S. House of Representatives, the New Democrat Coalition represents the moderate wing of the Democratic Party, and the Blue Dog Coalition represents centrist and conservative Democrats."

    What I know is that I expected to be a lifelong moderate Dem in the tradition of Jimmy Carter and Joe Lieberman and Pennsylvania's Robert Casey...and I held on a looooooooong time.

    But, in time, I realized that there was no place among Dems for people like me. The Dems are the party of Bernie and AOC and the "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" of the 020s.

    The GOPs?, they're the party of openness and inclusion and tolerance, diversity and acceptance.

    In the 020s, the GOP is more antiSwamp than conservative and that's why I'm GOP.

    The only difference are some nuances and what we call ourselves. I was the same until the 1990's.
