A large focus of the right-wing conversation is on Senate Bill 4-C & taking away the Reedy Creek Improvement District

is this a political punishment, is this against freedom of speech & 1rst amendment
legit concerns & I share some of them,

they miss the point of this move by @GovRonDeSantis & Florida GOP,

Ending #ReedyCreek is about putting Disney in its place & taking back control of Florida politics from the Mouse
#politics #disney #florida #ReedyCreekImprovementDistrict
For the last half-century,
Disney called the shots in Florida,

if something happens in the legislature that Disney doesn't like, then it doesn't happen

until now

The relationship between Florida & Disney started
in 1965 when Walt began buying up worthless swampland in what was then the middle of nowhere

Disney wanted land, power, and control and they wanted it cheap!
linkedin.com/pulse/story-wa… #disney #florida #reedycreek #politics #news
Wasn't just cuz Walt wanted to build another Theme-Park,

“Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow”

Disney wanted to build a self-sustaining 'imagineered' city where folks would live, work & play under the auspices of Disney
milwaukeeindependent.com/syndicated/cit… #disney #epcot
So under that premise, the Florida Legislature let Disney have independent autonomy under the

Reedy Creek Improvement Zone

Where Disney would be its own county gov, run its own police, fire, sanitation, etc without any of that messy local political oversight #disney #florida

So that's how @TaylorLorenz figured out the @libsoftiktok

So apparently @washingtonpost got a tip from following @travisbrown, who found the info looking at the registration details on Libs personal website, Image
honestly, it's a pretty easy scoop & a surprise it took this long if @libsoftiktok is such a threat to society🙄

washingtonpost.com/technology/202… #libsoftiktok
Note in the piece they cannot show or prove in any way any actual harm caused by @libsoftiktok

so instead this throw in this clunker for the last paragraph Image

so fun update:
I have walking Pneumonia!
I really didn't want to go to the doctor till my friend forced me, they ran some tests, & i had developed influenza that developed into pneumonia,

so that's fun
being disabled is a hoot,

i catch just about any virus, cold or bacteria that comes across my way, I should start living in a bubble

i usually end up with something like this every year, so its not exactly a shocker, still a nuisance though

The largest #comics social media page on the net,

r/comics on Reddit banned @BloodyRedBaron & his new pro-cop superhero comic for racism & misinformation,

They also banned the @FDRLST citing my article for Baron's ban

Hat tip to @BleedingFool & @BoundingComics
In addition, Facebook has made it all but impossible for Baron & others for ads on Facebook for the Thin Blue Line @Indiegogo campaign,

Blocking ads under the "sensitive social issues that could influence public opinion" rubric

A little journalism lesson:

The problem in journalism is that unless your screw-up gets big, or your org forces you to face it

U can basically ignore requests to fix it or comment,
It didn't use to be that way, but that's how the news media works these days
But just cuz the industry is in a bit of a moment when it comes to rectifying bad reporting,

Be a good journalist cuz its the right thing to do not cuz U will get in trouble #journalism #news #writing
As a journalist you will inevitably screw up something, make a mistake, it happens

the right thing to do is fix it, acknowledge it & move on

Learn from your mistake & do better next time
