Super Bowl Samaritan: Conservative Entrepreneur Makes Veteran’s Football Dreams Come True

For some in Atlanta, the Super Bowl is a major headache. For others, it is an opportunity to show their gratitude and support for our brave men and women in uniform.

Super Bowl

While the NFL continues its downward spiral into bizarre, political theater, the Super Bowl still means something to many Americans.

This is, after all, a spectacle to behold, especially here in the city of Atlanta, Georgia:  Home of the world’s busiest airport, Coca Cola, and traffic like you wouldn’t believe.  In order to make this entire event a success, there are millions of moving parts and people involved.

At Hartsfield-Jackson International, a well-timed compromise on the government shutdown brought security back up to its full force, just in time for the rapid influx of fans…many of whom will be rooting for the New England Patriots. The Pat’s stunning comeback win against the Falcons a few Super Bowls ago is still fresh in the mind here in the “city too busy to hate”.

Coca Cola’s confusing situation is bizarre for Atlantans too, as Super Bowl sponsor Pepsi has had a massive presence in the city this week.

The people of Atlanta are fiercely loyal to Coke, as demonstrated by the offer below:

While the above exchange is most certainly in jest, it just goes to show how we feel about our soda down here.

Now, an Atlanta area entrepreneur has decided to make one man’s Super Bowl dream come true.

From a recent press release:

On August 9, 2011, Army SPC Matthew Leyva’s life changed forever. While on patrol in Afghanistan he stepped on a pressure plate IED. He lost both his legs and several fingers on each hand. He spent two months in a coma and his recovery took more than two years.

Matt Leyva

Matt Leyva will be headed to the Super Bowl thanks to Romulus Marketing CEO Brandon Vallorani.

Now to acknowledge his service and sacrifice while defending America, Brandon Vallorani, CEO of Romulus Marketing LLC (Dallas, Georgia), is taking SPC Leyva on the trip of a lifetime.

That’s right; Vallorani is taking SPC Leyva to the Super Bowl.

SPC Leyva is going on an all expense paid trip to Atlanta that includes tickets to Sunday’s Big Game.

Brandon Vallorani learned about SPC Leyva’s sacrifice through the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, who gave the double-amputee Purple Heart recipient a mortgage-free smart home in 2017.

The Tunnel to Towers Foundation is named after firefighter Stephen Siller who laid down his life to save others on 9/11. The Foundation supports the military, first responders, and their families. Through the Smart Home Program, the Foundation builds smart homes that enable our most catastrophically injured veterans to live more independent lives. To date, the Foundation has delivered, started construction or is in the design stage of a total of 75 homes.

This isn’t Vallorani’s first foray into giving, either.

As a proclaimed Compassionate Conservative, Brandon Vallorani and Romulus Marketing LLC have donated to a number of causes including 4Ocean, Charity:Water and other veteran groups.

“Our Mission at Romulus Marketing is to put our money where our mouth is,” says COO and donation manager Liz Martin. “We fully believe that the citizens of our country have a duty to privately contribute to charitable causes, and our hearts are particularly devoted to causes that help our veterans.”

Upon learning about Tunnel to Towers mission “Partnering with Tunnel to Towers was a no-brainer,” says Vallorani. “I am forever grateful for veterans like Army SPC Matthew Leyva who made a great sacrifice to protect our nation and our freedoms. My family can live in peace because he was willing to put his life on the line. Taking Matt to the Big Game is one small way we could show our gratitude.”

Romulus Marketing has also made a financial commitment to further reach of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.

Texas Senate Passes Bill Banning Sex-Change Procedures for Minors

Last week, the Texas State Senate approved SB 1646, which would ban sex change procedures for minors, by an 18 to 12 vote margin.

Last week, the Texas State Senate approved SB 1646, which would ban sex change procedures for minors, by an 18 to 12 vote margin. The bill will now go to the State House before it can go to the governor’s desk. State Senator Charles Perry’s bill would define sex changes for kids as child abuse. If made into law, the state’s Child Protective Services (CPS) department would be tasked with dealing with violations. “Perry argued in floor debate that the bill was necessary to prevent children from making irreversible decisions that they may regret later, but experts say both parts of that claim are questionable,” the Texas Tribune reported. “According to Marjan Linnell, a general pediatrician, puberty suppression treatments are completely reversible and have been used for decades to delay early onset puberty. While other treatments such as hormones and surgery may cause irreversible changes, Linnell said the risks are discussed extensively with children and their parents before the procedures, which is typically only performed after puberty,” the paper added. Of course, the problem is, telling a 6-year-old about complex and possibly dangerous procedures is a waste of time since they aren’t advanced enough mentally and emotionally to make such important decisions. The bill in Texas is just one of the many bills in states across the country proposing limits on transgenderism. Not only are states trying to prevent the medical sector from dangerously affecting the health and wellbeing of children already suffering from confusion and pressures (usually from adults), but legislators are trying to limit men pretending to be women from playing sports against natural-born women.

“I am tired,” officer Kevin Dingle explained in a visit with Fox & Friends on Tuesday. His appearance came after his viral video in which he slammed anti-cop leftists. In his video, Maj. Kelvin Dingle — operation commander at the Morehouse School of Medicine Department of Public Safety in Atlanta — slammed those who constantly attack the left. “I wake up every morning and kiss my family goodbye, knowing that there’s a possibility I won’t come home,” Dingle said as he recorded his video in his car. “I am tired of every time I wake up in the morning there’s someone else polarizing the fact that maybe law enforcement is just not a good thing! All of us are not bad! I am not as they are! Most of us are not! There are bad people in every career! I’m so goddamn tired! Tired! Tired!” He ends up whispering: “I’m so tired. I give everything. I give everything! I’m tired.” https://twitter.com/stillgray/status/1388692295575244800 The original TikTok video earned more than 1.6 million views as of Wednesday. In his visit with Fox & Friends, officer Dingle said that hate for the police was not always this bad. “And that day, I just, honestly, had enough,” Dingle said. “My heart was broken because of the things that I saw in just traveling home to my family, and it wasn’t always that way.” H added that motorists on the road are often “frowning at me. He added, “People are purposely doing things to get my attention. They’re flipping me off.” “This is something new,” he continued. “It’s a new attitude.” Dingle confessed that “it’s really heartbreaking to me. When I got in law enforcement 20 years ago, it was not that way. In the last two years or so, law enforcement has really, really been…
