    Former Senate Democrat Majority Leader George Mitchell, who is one of the top dogs at Disney, tells us all we need to know how libs look at the poor.

    The Walt Disney Company is suing Anaheim, California over a city plan to build low-cost housing near Disneyland for low income people. George Mitchell's company has filed suite to stop the construction

    I wonder if ABC will report this? (Disney owns ABC)

    My, you have to love liberal love and compassion


    Disney sues Anaheim over low-cost housing plan

    ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The Walt Disney Co. is suing the city of Anaheim over a controversial residential project that would add low-cost housing in the city's resort district.
    Disney has long opposed the proposal to build 1,500 condominiums and apartments, including 225 units for lower income residents, near its amusement parks. The entertainment company says residents would be out of place in a district designed for tourists.

    "This lawsuit speaks to how important we view this Anaheim resort area and that we make sure the vision sticks," said Disneyland spokesman Rob Doughty.

    The Anaheim City Council is considering whether to reopen debate on the residential project after rejecting the proposal earlier this month with a split council vote.

    The project's developer appealed and argued that Councilwoman Lucille Kring, who was told to abstain over of a possible conflict of interest because she planned to open a wine bar nearby, should have been allowed to vote.

    Excellent show of just how 'liberal' democrats are. They are the pussy side of the business party. Republican-lite. I hope every paper reports this.

    Anyone who has lived in Anaheim (I lived there for 18 years, until I went to college) knows that Disney is the Anti-Christ. The Disney corporation believes Anaheim (and all of Orange County) should be a subsidiary of the Disney Empire.
    Disney is by no means liberal. Of course, the Bush apologists would not know this, since they consider anyone who fails to worship Bush doctrine without question as "liberal."
    You would have to live in Anaheim to understand what this is about.

    Sorry to bust your bubble, but former Sen George Mitchell (D) is Disney's corporate director. (He OK'd the suite) Disney also owns ABC News

    They are very liberal, and so is Disney.

    This is a perfect example of libs lecturing the people on how they should live their lives and how they should act - while doing the opposite themselfs

    Give me one good reason why Disney should say "Sure, build all these low budget houses next to our High dollar tourist attraction. We dont mind poor people drinking 40's with brown bags around them bothering our customers"

    You ever been to Atlantic City ? Its like a diamond surrounded by shit. Nice casinos surrounded by crap. Of course the crap was their first. But you get my point. I have no idea why you dont think Disney or any other prestigious place would oppose this.

    What if you lived in a wealthy area and they decided to build low income houses right next to your mansion ? Thats right, the price of your place just went down big time. Next time think before you post stuff like this just so you can slam liberals.

    But the point's perfectly taken. Liberals spend their lives pointing an angry finger at those rich, arrogant businesspeople and how they don't "care about the poor." But stick the poor under their noses, and they react the same. Or worse. It's called hypocrisy.

    Good post, rsr.

    It is so typical of the left. They lecture everyone else how to live their lives, how they need to be more caring, and how they should give more of their money in taxes; all to help the poor

    BUT when the libs have the chance to actually do something - forget about it -

    Yep, there are plenty of rich liberals in business. Of course their money comes first. Priorities, people. These guys are in it for the "greater good"...the greater good for themselves, that is. Poor people are just another means to an end...useful fodder with which to gain power through governmental control. Remember that in socialism the big businesses are basically controlled by the elite few running the government while their duped followers run around chirping how socialism is for the "greater good".

    Liberal compassion my ass.
