Delta Airlines paid for the services off CNN Newsource, CNN’s fake news division (yes there is such a department) to issue a press release and brag about having banned 460 customers from flying on their airline again for having apparently mouth back to the waitress or driver about having to endure the face diaper and inhale their own carbon dioxide for an hours-long flight.
I took the opportunity to send Delta a strongly-worded e-mail:
Corporate media is reporting that your airline is banning 450 “anti-maskers.”
I haven’t flown on your airline, or any airline for that matter since 2017, since a flight from Buffalo to Atlanta in which a TSA security guard shoved his hands down my pants (as if just being in Buffalo wasn’t enough). Since then, my wife and I have driven EVERYWHERE. Back in July when he had to travel from Orlando to Michigan for a funeral for my wife’s aunt, all four of us (myself, my wife and our two dogs), put everything we needed into my F-150 and pointed the truck north on I-75.
When we stopped for fuel and for food, we did NOT put on our face diapers. Fortunately, Georgia, Tennessee and Kentucky were respites from the mask crap.
I defy you to explain to me how that stupid piece of cloth across my face is helping ANYBODY when the very act of exhaling fogs up my sunglasses. And I suppose you have a logical, scientific explanation for me about how the face diaper stops the China Flu when I take it off to eat and drink? Is there some period of protection that one is afforded with if you eat and drink, so long as you were wearing the diaper before and put it back on immediately after?
The airlines have scammed HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS off the American taxpayer in the past 20 years. Over 25-billion of that since this hoax began in March. I was laid off from my job with one of the larger inter-city bus companies back in March because my employer didn’t get a bailout from Uncle Sucker to drive empty buses (or one or two people on the bus) back and forth across the country.
And in gratitude for the largesse you have extracted from us, the security guards, waitresses and drivers have been downright abusive towards your few paying customers. Not Just Delta, but ALL of the airlines.
So go ahead. I’ve given you my name and address. Ban me. Now. Put me on the TSA no-fly list. Because I can assure you there is absolutely NOWHERE I need to fly to. And if I can’t drive there, I guess I won’t be going. You couldn’t PAY ME to step on to an airplane.
And you’ll notice that our Republican senate has not paid Queen Nancy’s ransom and you haven’t gotten any more bailout candy since April. We intended to keep it that way.
I hope every single airline goes bankrupt and all of you join the other half of the country on the unemployment lines. Flying has been a miserable experience for decades, but now you’ve put the ship into hyper-drive.
Congratulations. We’re done with you.
Graham Media (formerly Washington Post) and WKMG-Channel 6, Orlando’s lowest-rated and least-watched newscast, continues to get results as it continues on destroying the economy of Central Florida and the United States in the name of “getting Trump.”
Your humble correspondent has been getting numerous “text polls” lately.
It has come to my attention that Trump supporters have been lying to the pollsters and claiming to be Biden supporters, thus giving Democrats and over-inflated sense of confidence.
I am always happy to do my part.
Oh, and, uh, Miss Occasional Cortex..
Sen. Kamala Harris came to Orlando on Monday and encouraged Floridians to vote early to “put our country back on the right track.”
The Democratic candidate for vice president held an outdoor, drive-in rally at the Central Florida Fairgrounds, where invited guests in about 50 cars honked their horns in approval as she and others spoke on the first day of early voting in the state.
“Orlando!” Harris exclaimed. “Look at what my eyes behold.”
“Today I had to come here on the kickoff of early voting in Florida because y’all are going to make it happen,” she said. “What you will do here in Florida and Orlando by early voting, you will be the first to put our country back on the right track.”
MIAMI, FL – This is what support looks like. Miami police estimated that there were approximately 30,000 vehicles that participated in a vehicle parade, comprised of Latinos in south Florida, and showed their support for President Donald J. Trump. Many of the participants migrated to the US from Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua.
They (the migrants), of all people, know what socialism looks like. They lived it firsthand. They felt the impact of communist rule. They understand the lifelong damage that these types of governmental atrocities bring. For many, it was the reason they left their home countries for a better life in the United States.
Now they find themselves just slightly more than 3 weeks away from a presidential election. Socialism is on the ballot, in the form of Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and the “progressive” liberal ideology they want to force down the throats of the American people.

Hundreds of thousands of residents in Orlando and Orange County remain unemployed as Lockdown Jerry Demings continues to sabotage any recovery in the hopes that voters will take their anger out on President Trump and Republicans and re-elect his partner-in-corruption, congress-critter wife Valdez “Val” Demings
Not satisfied with sending his “Strike Teams” to bars, restaurants, gas stations, stores and other small businesses, Demings’ health tyrants are now sinking their teeth into a new victim in an attempt to shut them down: the county’s theme parks (primarily Sea World, Universal Studios and the Big Kahuna: Walt Disney World.
The Parks are barely hanging on. They have laid off tens of thousands of staff and are employing a skeleton crew to keep things running. Yet the response of the incompetent Demings is to send his bureaucrats in to make sure the parks are enforcing “social distancing” and the very mask orders nullified by Governor DeSantis.
The Walt Disney Company has laid off over 32,000 workers: 28,000 in Anaheim, where Democrats have kept Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure shackled since March and other 4,000 at Walt Disney World in Orlando.
It’s still summer in Florida and Jerry Demings won’t be happy until customers and staff have dropped dead with their face diapers on in tropical heat and humidity. The Demings won’t be happy until every last worker in Orlando and Orange County is out of work, even the largest employers are bankrupt and left to rust and everybody is collecting welfare (which doesn’t exist in Florida) and left dependent and at the mercy of a tyrannical Democrat government.
The minimum wage in Florida is less than $9 per hour, but as a couple who have become multi-millionaires since Val went to the District of Criminals in 2016, the Demings needn’t burden themselves with such unpleasantness.
In short, the Demings and the Democrats won’t be happy until Orlando, Orange County, Florida and the entire United States look just like California.
Why Republican governor Ron DeSantis and Florida’s Republican-majority state house and senate continues to allow this disaster and obvious sabotage by corrupt Democrat municipal politicians like Jerry Demings is a very good question indeed.
ORLANDO, Fla. – Orange County leaders are cracking down on businesses not following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines. Now they have a new area of focus: theme parks.
The Orange County strike teams will start doing surprise checks at area theme parks. This is a county-wide effort going on for several weeks now.
“So far over 3,600, to be precise 3,620, different business sites have been visited,” said Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings.
Mayor Demings gave an update on the county’s strike teams on Monday that are working to ensure businesses are being compliant with CDC guidelines — most recently focusing in on businesses along Goldenrod and Curry Ford Road.
Now the teams are hitting the major attractions.
“In addition to smaller businesses, the strike teams will be once again visiting major theme parks unannounced very soon.”
Mayor Demings says the strike teams have been going out for more than two months.
The county says they’ve done about 450 follow-up inspections.

Dr. Jill Biden, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, stopped by Central Florida to campaign for her husband on Friday..
The Women for Biden event was held at a private home in Lake Mary. The longtime educator’s speech focused on education.
She also encouraged people to go out and vote as early voting is set to begin. Grace Nelson, the wife of former senator Bill Nelson, also spoke at the event.
At the same time, President Donald Trump also campaigned in Florida. He held a rally in Ocala.
Dr. Biden’s visit was short as she headed to St. Pete for another event Friday.
OCALA, Fla. – President Donald Trump is predicting a “red wave” of Republican voting in Florida.
Most polls show a close race in the important battleground state that both the Republican incumbent and Democrat Joe Biden are courting heavily.
Addressing a campaign rally Friday in Ocala, Trump reminded thousands of supporters that “I live here, too.” He recently switched his legal residence from New York.
HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!
Event at a private home vs rally in front of thousands. But Biden is really ahead in the polls and Trump will never catch up.
Yeah, sure. Whatever

Poor Tom and Jodi Utsman. They own a Christmas tree farm in the central Florida town of Eustis. They also sell pumpkins in October.
Orlando’s WOFL-Fox 35 TV news reported on the insufferable “harassment” this couple has been receiving due to their business’s mask policy.
“It really has been quite heartbreaking,” said owner Jodi Utsman.“It’s really upsetting,” her husband, Tom Utsman said.
So, what’s going on? Are people calling them leaving them nasty phone messages? Throwing rocks through their windows? Running them off the road? Yelling at them at the supermarket? Well, no. Not exactly…
The Utsmans are getting such pushback on their mask requirement, they posted on Facebook about it.
“Basically, we don’t want to hide our policy. We are not trying to hide our policy and we want everybody to know we are serious about our policy,” Jodi explained.
It sounds like your potential customers are just as serious about NOT being your customers why why they are NOT being your customers. And they are using the outlet YOU have provided them to let you know that.
The couple says their employees have been wearing masks on the farm since March. So when they decided to reopen a few weeks ago, they wanted customers to do so as well.
“We’re in the middle of a fake pandemic! We’re all miserable. We’re making ourselves miserable and goddammit we’re going to make you miserable, too! Because we’re all in this together!”
“When the guest buys their tickets online, they tick a box that says they’re going to mask when they come and we were all quite comfortable with that,” Jodi said.
There are also signs posted at the entrance and throughout the farm. But despite the clear rules, the couple says people have been breaking them.
“We never thought we would have a problem with people coming in and defying us on purpose,” Tom told FOX 35 News.
“You vill obey! Ve have signs! Ve have signs, you vill follow dem!”
“We have a very young staff and sometimes they have to ask grown people over and over again to put their mask on,” Jodi said.
That’s a pretty stupid position to be putting your workers in. Even the big box stores are telling their staff to NOT confront their customers who choose not to follow the face diaper mandates.
The Utsmans say they’ve had families leave and been trashed in reviews but they’re sticking to their mask policy loud and clear.
Good. I would do the same thing. I wouldn’t spend my money in a business that fancied itself a sole-remaining extraterritorial possession of East Germany.
“We are not asking anyone to change their beliefs on masking. We are just asking you to stay home if you are going to come on your property and not wear a mask,” Jodi said.
Do your banker and your accountant know you are deliberately trying to destroy your business by telling potential customers to get lost?
Eustis is in Lake County, one of the lucky counties in Florida where there is no “mask order.” So customers have every right to enter the business. Furthermore, a business has no right to put a customer’s health and safety in danger by requiring them to wear a device which inhibits the free intake of oxygen.
The Utsmans are either too stupid or too oblivious to know that their customers are sending them a message: “We know it’s a hoax, we know the mask is useless and we’re not going along with it.
The customers are saying, “Hell, no! We’re NOT wearing a face diaper in hot, humid, tropical Florida weather.”
It has been estimated that over 100,000 small business have either gone bankrupt or otherwise never coming back since the lockdown / shutdown / crackdown which started in March, 2020. The Utsmans should be thanking God almighty that their little farm is still in business.
Instead, they choose to impose a tyrannical, unhealthy and – most importantly – unnecessary “mask order” on their paying customers. Customers who just want to go out for a day of family fun and leave this nonsense at home.
They should have taken a hint from their Facebook messages, recognized that this was a hoax and used the opportunity to market themselves as “mask-free.” Instead, they decided to whine to whatever Orlando corporate media outlet would listen. And a soft-news J-school graduate at Fox 35 picked it up and headed out with a minicam.
The Utsmans have a Facebook presence. It’s a two-way street. If they are lousy businesspeople, they are going to get pushback. If they don’t like that, they should stay off of Facebook.
Frankly, if they are this tone-deaf to the demands of their customers, then they don’t deserve to be in business in the first place.
Developers looking for cheap land should keep an eye on this situation. There will be a Christmas tree farm coming up for sale shortly if the Utsmans keep this up.

WKMG Channel 6, owned by Graham Media (formerly the Washington Post) and named for the late publisher Katharine Meyer Graham, is Orlando’s most liberal (now approaching Marxist) and thus lowest rated news television station. They are dumb enough to allow comments on all of their articles.
An article advertising the schedule for the upcoming National Felons’ League broadcast season brought out comments which were almost unanimously indifferent to anything NFL. Other than a comment that called out everybody else in favor of a boycott as racist (of course), and another that insisted that football was still popular (based on previous seasons; another comment called out), the rest of the commenters didn’t give a shit.
And these were just the comments that were allowed to stay up, or that weren’t shadow banned by users oblivious to the fact that their work is not being seen by others.
And the three top comments, in the opinion of your humble correspondent:
More proof emerged this week that President Barack Obama has spent decades sowing his wild oats across Florida when Orlando Police took Trey’von Graham into custody in relation to a shooting at a Mall food court in an upscale (i.e. white) neighborhood.
While details still remain unclear, the general consensus is that somebody did something. Graham himself was heard hollering at reporters, “I din do nuttin’!” as he was thrown in the trunk of local congress critter Val Deming’s Crown Victoria. Prior to closing the trunk, Chief Orlando Rolon took a knee and offered his deepest apologies for the suffering and injustice that was occurring to Mr. Graham.
(WOFL-TV, Fox 35, Orlando)
At last report, “Commando” co-star Alyssa Milano and vice presidential candidate Kamela “Heels Up” Harris were seen rushing to Orlando bail out Trey’von.
George Zimmerman was unavailable for comment.
By Erik Sandoval and Andrienne Cutway, WKMG, Channel 6 TV, Orlando, October 8, 2020
ORLANDO, Fla. – A 19-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a shooting Thursday evening near the Mall at Millenia food court, police said.
Orlando police said Trey’von Jaheim Graham was arrested overnight on charges of attempted first-degree murder with a firearm and discharging a firearm in public.
Four people were taken into custody after the shooting, but their status is not known. Police said early Friday that no other suspects were being sought.
Like many other people across the United States and around the world, humble correspondent has been experiencing financial challenges since being put out of work in March.
I know when banks, credit card companies and bill collectors are calling, obviously. When I choose to answer, and after they give me their Miranda warning (this call is being recorded and this is an attempt to collect a debt), I respond by similarly warning them that the very fact that I answered means they will be dealt with harshly and with hostility and ask if they wish to continue.
One woman said, “I am going to terminate this call.”
Recently, in responding to a collection agency who had admitted purchasing a debt from another company, I wrote:
I hope you didn’t pay too much for this debt because until this country returns to normal, it isn’t getting paid. Our credit has been destroyed because of this planned-emic. We had stellar credit before this.
I have just returned to work after being off since March. I am making half of what I was making before. After returning to work with a limited number of hours in July, (redacted) has now been furloughed entirely.
You can expect this account to be paid when all of the following happen:
a) All businesses in the state of Florida are allowed to open unrestricted
b) Democrat Population Centers cease to forbid their citizens from traveling to Florida
c) Walt Disney World reopens in full (and) Universal Studios reopens in full
e) (transportation company) returns to a full operating schedule
f) All “social distancing” and “mask orders” are repealed
If the above is unsatisfactory, I suggest you take the matter up with President Donald Trump, Governor Ron DeSantis, Orange County “Mayor” Jerry Demings and Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. These four gentlemen are responsible for Melissa and I being out of work, and thus the original debt going unpaid.
I would also add that, due to this ill-advised government policy which threw half the country out of work, our mortgage has gone mostly unpaid and is approximately $5,000 in arrears. We are now in forbearance until the end of December and THAT will be the priority.
Upon two million Floridians being rendered unemployed on St. Patrick’s Day, the unemployment system here collapsed. It took until June for me to get any money, and (redacted) didn’t receive any money until August. Not the whopping $275 state benefit, nor the $600 federal supplement. When checks did start arriving, the payment dates were unpredictable. We did NOT receive the back weeks between the time we applied and the time we received our first payments. This is a matter of public record which can be confirmed with a simple search engine new search.
I can assure you that as soon as we are in a position, (redacted) or I will contact you and make arrangements to settle this account for an amount that works for both of us.
Until such time, you are requested to cease any further contact with (redacted), her employer, or anybody else in relation to this debt. Your continued harassment will not assist (redacted) in paying this account any quicker.
If you do call, I assure you, you will be treated with the utmost hostility and non-cooperation.
We did not ask for the rug to be pulled out from underneath us in the name of fighting a hoax “pandemic.” Had this not happened, we would not be in this position.
(redacted) and I lived through the SARS outbreak in Toronto in 2003. At the time, the government of Canada brought in the CDC’s Dr. Julie Gerberding (later CDC director). Businesses remained open. ALL businesses. Restaurants. Hotel. All stores. Salons and barber shops. Tourist traps. NOBODY was ordered closed. Public transit continued to run as usual. I was a transit worker at the time. My train carried upwards of 3,000 commuters PER TRAIN at rush hour and we were FORBIDDEN from wearing masks. Suspected exposed people were quarantined at home. Sick people were treated. There were no B.S. “mask orders” and no “social distancing.” The whole thing was done and forgotten about in two months. So, having shared all of that with you, I have no hesitation in telling you that this situation is NOT our fault and is a gross – and I allege willful – overreaction on the part of our governing masters.
You will recall that around March 17th, we were told the country would be shut down in order to save the lives of 2.2-million Americans and this would only be for “15 days to slow the spread” America has now been held hostage for 190 days. That’s over six months.
Maybe if we’re really lucky, the whole scam will mysteriously disappear on the morning of November 4th.
Finally, I would be interested in knowing how many people in your office have gone without a check since March?
Here in Florida, hundreds of thousands of workers are still out of a job due to the ongoing “pandemic” hoax. Since March, we have had to endure politicians, bureaucrats, public health tyrants, “entertainers” and other celebrities and “concerned citizens” telling us to stay home, wear a mask when we DO go out, and to avoid any “public places” or events.
Of all of these people, I have yet to find one who has missed a paycheck, gone without a meal, been threatened with utility disconnection, is facing homelessness, has had their credit destroyed or suffered any of the other consequences the rest of us have had to endure. On the contrary, they have benefited from empty roads and cheaper prices for consumer goods and housing.
In fact, the banks have benefited more than any other single industry. By “deferring” payments for a few months, they have maximized interest. As payments continue to be missed, they tack on late payment fees every month.
There is absolutely no down side to the banks regarding what the rest of us are facing.
There is no way Wall Street would ever allow the economy to be “shut down” unless they not only allowed it, but it was their idea and they didn’t think they would make a killing (literally) off the plan.
We are living through a massive economic bankster take down.
