The economy of Orlando, Florida, as the rest of the United States and much of the world, has been devastated. The hundreds of thousands of low-wage – mostly minimum-wage – workers upon whose backs this city was built upon are out of work.
We can thank, in part, Val Demings, (D-FL-10), Orlando’s congress critter who was returned to the District of Criminals by default in 2018 because the Republicans couldn’t even bother fielding a candidate.
Demings, not to be confused with her uglier, older sister Maxine Waters…
…has made a good life for herself. A former Orlando police worker, she rose through the ranks to become chief of police. While on the job, she met Jerry Demings, an Orange County sheriff’s deputy. They got hitched. Val got elected to congress. Jerry was elected sheriff, and eventually mayor of Orange County, which encompasses Orlando. Despite those middle-class roots, the Demings have managed to build up a $5-million fortune since Val went to Congress.
The State of Florida has a less-than-minimal unemployment compensation system. It pays $275 per week for up to 12 weeks. Until now, it really wasn’t needed. There was ALWAYS a job to be had in Florida. Even if it involved working at a McDonald’s or a Stop n Rob. All that changed last month. In Orlando, there are literally NO jobs. The streets are deserted. Even Uber was dead.
Last week, your humble correspondent called Val’s office in the District of Criminals and gave the fart-catcher who answered her phone what-for. I reminded him that Demings, as a member of the impeachment committee, was part of the prosecution against President Trump. I reminded him that while she was busy with her impeachment hoax, President Trump was distracted from, among other things, the virus which was then breaking out in China.
I told him, “I don’t care if we’re living under a bridge in November, there is no way in hell my wife or I would ever vote for Democrat.”
The fart-catcher said, “I have no comment to make. I will pass that along to the congress
Not content with that effort to make my voice known, I wrote a letter using the only means available to the average public: the web form. Congress critters do not public their e-mails or fax numbers. You can drop a letter in the mail if you want.
Dear Mrs. Demings:
While the China Flu was just breaking out in Wuhan last Fall, President Trump was being distracted by your impeachment hoax.
My wife and are as working class as they come. We own our own home on America Street. My wife works at one of the larger theme parks in town. Until two weeks ago, I drove a bus.
I want you to know that, for this among many other reason, there is no way in hell either of us would ever vote for you or any other Democrat. I don’t care if we’re both living under the 408 come next November, President Trump can count on our support NO MATTER WHAT.
This was done TO US . This is not an economic circumstance. This is economic sabotage.
And while the Republicans were trying to get a disaster relief bill through congress as quickly as possible, you people were busy loading it up with Democrats’ nocturnal emissions like same-day voter registration. You piled on crap that has nothing to do with the current emergency. Money for the Kennedy Center. Yeah, that’s what we’re really worried about right now.
We have an unprecedented, catastrophic economic emergency here in Orlando. Hundreds of thousands of people have been thrown out of work in our city ALONE. Millions across the country. And why is the Democrats top priority? Illegal aliens. Airplane emissions. The Post Office. And, of course, pork. Lots and lots and lots of pork.
Most of us don’t have millions of dollars in unexplained wealth built up over the past four years that we can fall back on. Myself, I had just left a lower paying job for a much higher paying one in January when the rug got pulled out from underneath me on March 15.
I was watching the senate vote live last week when your party voted against US. Hours later, Nancy “I want my crumbs back” Pelosi came out with her 1,400 page bill. How long does it take to write 1,400 pages anyway? I can only imagine what would have been in those hundreds of pages, but I suppose you would have had to pass it before we could find out.
My wife and I are absolutely disgusted with you and your criminal, corrupt Democrat party. For everything you have tried to do for the past four years, I can only hope that, when President Trump is re-elected in November with a landslide, and the Republicans see similarly impressive results in the House and Senate, he appoints an Attorney General with the courage to go after your party under RICO. The stench is truly that bad.
And, Biden? You’ve got to friggin’ kidding us.
In closing, you have managed to do what nobody would have thought possible. You have destroyed the economy of Central Florida. You have put hundreds of thousands of low-wage workers out of work, to the point where even McDonalds isn’t hiring.
You must be very proud of yourself.
Enjoy your millions.
Well, it would appear our congress crooks don’t give a shit what we think, because when I clicked on “submit:”

Demings and her fellow corrupt members of congress (Democrat, Republican and Miscellaneous) may be secure in the knowledge that voters will never rise up against their criminality, theft, extortion, insider training and other on-the-job misdeeds. Unfortunately – for them – they are making a tactical error. Government has ordered tens of millions of people OFF THE JOB. People who have a lot of time on their hands.
As John F. Kennedy (R.I.P.) once observed…
You know, Val, you guys are making things pretty goddamned hard to do things the easy way.
