Disney Has Problems. Decides To Make Things Worse.

These are rough times for the Mouse’s House:

Disneyland May Be Facing A $2 Billion Loss Due To COVID-19

It’s been a tough year for The Walt Disney Company. Theaters are empty, blockbusters are delayed, merchandise sales are way down and visiting a theme park is a potential death sentence. Throughout 2020, they’ve tried to figure out ways to mitigate the effects of COVID-19, reopening some of their parks with closed rides, social distancing in place and antiviral measures. It didn’t go so well, though, with the ensuing promotional videos widely dubbed as creepy and the company being condemned as irresponsible.

Now, financial analyst Michael Nathanson, founding member of firm MoffetNathanson, has projected the cost of COVID-19 closing the Disneyland resort. In mid-March, the entire complex shut down, though various wings of the park like the Downtown Disney shopping mall have since reopened. Still, the shutdown adds up to an eye-watering $2.2 billion loss for Disney in 2020, which will have devastating consequences for the employees.

In September, the House of Mouse announced that they’re laying off 28,000 workers from their parks divisions, resulting in Abigail Disney (granddaughter of company co-founder Roy Disney) commenting that:

Biden Spouts Off Nonsensical Advice On Shootings. Again.

You may remember back in 2013, then Vice-President Joe Biden offered this advice to his wife and people looking to protect their homes and family from criminals:

They don’t need an assault-style weapon. If there are bad guys on the property, walk out on the balcony and fire a couple blasts from their double-barrel shotgun. “You don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself,” he adds, and a shotgun’s easier to aim than an assault-style rifle. Plus, two shotgun blasts should scare off most intruders, Biden says.

Biden’s advice was rightfully assailed by many people as being ridiculous. There are three types of shotguns: break action, pump action and semi-automatic. “Break action” shotguns are typically used for hunting and skeet shooting and carry one or two rounds before they must be reloaded. Biden’s advice would essentially make it that people would not only have to get a shotgun to protect themselves, but would have to grab a fist full of shells with it. Loading a break action shotgun in a highly stressful situation by non-professional shooters is difficult to impossible. Experts said that Biden’s advice would leave home owners vulnerable.

Brevard County: Just Stop It.

The people that we are supposed to hold our nose and vote for are at it again.

This Photoshopped image has been making the rounds:

This appears to be part of an attack that we talked about the other day where State Representative Randy Fine had volunteered with the Boy Scouts. In that the Boy Scouts are in trouble for workers and volunteers sexually abusing young men and boys, a post was put up saying that if someone had any information about being abused by Fine, they should call a certain number.

Frankly, this is a disgusting thing to say or do. First, there is no indication that Fine did anything wrong. Secondly, it denigrates and cheapens the experiences of actual survivors of sexual abuse as it ties them into a cheap political attack. Third, Fine’s opponent Phil Moore has said he is not a part of this attack, but at the same time he has not condemned those who made the accusations and this Photoshopped image of called for them to stop.

On Friday, this post made the rounds from Randy Fine:

PALM BAY: New Campground? What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Palm Bay want to design, build and manage a campground. What could go possibly wrong?

Lots.

John Stossel explains:

Governments should not compete against private businesses as not only is there a conflict of interest in rules and regulations, but it is always the taxpayer that foots the bill when the government can’t manage things properly.



BREVARD COUNTY: Randy Fine Steps In It.

Representative Randy Fine sent out a text that contained the logo used by the Brevard County Public Schools.

While the main issue is the use of the logo, there is another issue at hand.

Fine claims that his opponent in the upcoming election, Phil Moore has “proposed legislation to close Brevard charter schools and end all voucher programs….”

That seems to be an overstatement. As far as we can determine, Phil Moore has never held an elected public office which means he has not “proposed” any legislation.

In addition. the charge Fine is making against Moore appears to go back to an interview in 2018 where Moore stated he was against funding of charter schools and voucher programs, but later walked back his opposition to not funding charter schools:

Florida House candidate Phil Moore says he misspoke last month when he said charter schools should not receive taxpayer dollars.
