If they ever did that, it would crush Florida.  The ripple effect would go on for years.  And Governor Potsie would be out and selling used cars somewhere in scrub land.
Dissolving RCID would put about 350 people out of work, including 200 first responders, since the Back the Blue crowd seems to care about them sometimes…when there isn’t a Capitol involved. That came out in comments yesterday from one of the enemy representatives. The Orange County Tax Collector has been on Twitter a bit. He’s said it was upwards of 4k per taxpayer. That doesn’t go to renters…directly. It’s way too stupid, even for DeSantis. It’s gotta be a distraction to keep people from talking about Captain Ron’s Get Black People Out of the Florida House Delegation map.

I think Disney picked the wrong fight.  Corporations should stay the fuck out of politics. They crosse the line by threatening to take the state of Florida to court.    Now it’s biting them in the bottom line.  Anyone who thinks you can just pack up WDW and just move is smoking some good shit.  To put it into perspective it’s the size of San Francisco 

Most of the infrastructure like the monorails could not be replaced with todays cost to construct.  
 

There is talk of bringing back Bob Iger to hopefully mend fences.

Cite please. 
On Monday, Disney condemned the signing in a statement.

“Florida’s HB 1557, also known as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, should never have passed and should never have been signed into law,” a Disney spokesperson said. “Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts,

Corporations fight regulations all the time. Why do you pick on this fight?

Corporations are people too, my friend...sometimes. Citizens United is one of our good CorPersons...as was Disney until they turned off the money spigot. Disney didn't sue over Don't Say Gay.

Let's see the lawsuit, bullshitter. 
What part of threatened did you miss?  It’s hard to believe you are a lawyer.  If you make a statement on behalf of a client saying we are looking to the court to resolve this would you not be threatening to go to court?  
 

Or would that be bullshit?

Please post where anyone said there was a lawsuit filed?

Let's see the threat then. What you posted was not a threat to sue. All Disney did was turn off the money pipeline.

The Freedom Party is certainly getting into people's personal lives big time. So, masks are bad because freedom, but personal life choices aren't?

I mean seriously, What the actual Fuck??  Are there Gangs of transgender youth inundating the Florida countryside requiring the people to hide in their basements??

They are not fighting a regulation  they are threatening to fight a law that has nothing to do with their operations as a corporation.  
Disney said they hoped it was overturned. They would need standing in order to sue, and if it's correct that they are not impacted (debatable, some of their characters are gender inspecific) then they would not be able to sue.

No they didn’t say they HOPED.  They said “THEIR GOAL”   that’s specific verbiage to their being involved.  
 

That's pretty threatening, I suppose.
Sol’s spreading bullshit - with nothing to back the claim of Disney shutting off the money

Meh. When they file a lawsuit, let us know. Why do you hate Capitalism and Freedom?
