My late friend, Larry Tucker, was the first person who ever told me about the Reedy Creek Improvement District. Larry was a wise former Tallahassee lobbyist for rural health care and Farm Bureau, formerly a youthful UPI journalist in North Carolina and LBH's White House, former Florida newspaper publisher, retired Democratic political consultant, talented photographer and great storyteller.
No one ever challenged the Reedy Creek Improvement District, until Disney opposed oppression by the RONALD DION DeSANTIS GANG.
The Reedy Creek Improvement District was left alone for six decades.
Then Disney dared stand up for LGBTQ rights against the demonic demagogic anti-democratic Governor RONALD DION DeSANTIS, whose confession of retaliatory motives will likely lead federal courts to conclude he went too far.
Rather than Disney "crossing a line" -- one of the insecure, insincere, whiny tBoy Governor's own creation --- I predict the federal courts will hold that DeSANTIS crossed a line.
Corporations are jural persons, clothed with First Amendment rights.
DeSANTIS and his Flori-DUH legislature are fixing to get a legal education, one that obviously escaped this hobbledehoy in our employ when he was at Harvard Law Schoo.
