    Disney not subject to Anaheim’s ‘living wage’ ballot measure, judge rules - OCR/SCNG

    And that's why I'm not going to stereotype an entire generation - for better or worse. You and I are about the same age and have pretty similar stories. That's part of why it bothers me when people look down upon young people today for being vocal about issues that people should be vocal...

    Disney not subject to Anaheim’s ‘living wage’ ballot measure, judge rules - OCR/SCNG

    You are aware there's a difference between children and young adults in the workforce, right?

    Disney not subject to Anaheim’s ‘living wage’ ballot measure, judge rules - OCR/SCNG

    As has already been pointed out numerous times in this thread. Real purchasing power has declined since you entered the work force. You almost certainly made more - and hence had "more toys" than your peers in today's generation. It is a fact about our economy that young people today are more...

    Disney not subject to Anaheim’s ‘living wage’ ballot measure, judge rules - OCR/SCNG

    And when you show that me that person - I'll be just critical of them for whatever their sins may be. But I'm not going to go on a Disney forum and proudly put others down - certainly not for the tremendous offense of 'lacking historical perspective'. To get this conversation back on topic...

    Disney not subject to Anaheim’s ‘living wage’ ballot measure, judge rules - OCR/SCNG

    I get the sarcasm. It's just not appropriate. If the worst thing that you can say about someone is that they're too optimistic, that they are naive for believing things can change, or that they're wrong for believing that they can change it - if you make sarcastic comments and act like it's all...

    Notice of Preparation of a Draft Subsequent Environmental Impact Report No. 352 and Scoping Meeting for the DisneylandForward Project

    This is not correct. The Toy Story Lot would be zoned for theme park (and other uses) going forward. What would change is the elimination of a conditional use permit that currently applies to that land. "Disneyland Forward" really is just a marketing ploy for that zoning change. In the abstract...

    The name is based on the book and not the movie.

    As far as self-awareness (or the lack thereof) is concerned, this speaks for itself.

    Notice of Preparation of a Draft Subsequent Environmental Impact Report No. 352 and Scoping Meeting for the DisneylandForward Project

    The US market probably can't support more than two resorts. There's no doubt that if Disney expands further, it will be in Anaheim or Orlando. A new resort in the middle of the country simply takes guests away from Anaheim or Orlando. And no, it doesn't reduce risk in any meaningful way. A...

    This is a marketing ploy for a changing in a zoning ordinances. That's it.

    Yes, it's terrible that young people are concerned with solving these problems instead of leaving them for future generations.

    Public policy polling consistently shows what people mean by that. It's basically favoring something like the left graph (below) over the right. That doesn't mean that the left tax rates are what people prefer, but that people generally want marginal tax brackets to change according to these curves.
