What This Florida Couple is Doing for Active Military Members is Awesome

Published

Steve and Jamie Lloyd are the founders of Naples Take a Soldier Fishing event which just wrapped up it’s eleventh year, and what it does for the brave men and women in our military is super awesome.

Over 150 soldiers got together in Florida for three days of music, golf, and fishing, where the ultimate goal is to make these folks feel like rock stars. Now that’s something we can all get behind.

“We like to keep it around 140, just for logistics and coordinating with the boats. Any bigger and it could take away from what the soldiers are able to do while they’re here,” Jamie said.

While they’re in Naples, Jamie said the soldiers are treated to free hotel stays, a Thursday night dinner, free golf on Friday and then a fishing tournament all Saturday morning – along with breakfast, lunch and dinner all donated from restaurants in the area.

“We want them to feel like rock stars,” Jamie said. “Because in the eyes of people that don’t understand what they do, they really are rock stars.

“Look at where we live, we live in paradise. Look at what they do,” she added.

“We thought, ‘Why Tampa? We have the best fishing in Naples. We should be bringing soldiers here,’” Jamie said.

Thus started the Naples Take a Soldier Fishing venture, which focuses on mainly active-duty military — though retired and wounded veterans are still allowed to participate.

“When we first started, it was just a day thing. A barbecue and some fishing,” Jamie said. “We only had 35 soldiers.”

“And then each year we just did a little bit more, and it got a little bigger,” she continued. “It spread just kind of like wildfire. People heard about it and wanted to help out.”

This is the kind of thing we need more of in America today, as our soldiers are often neglected and sometimes forgotten in the shuffle of modern day politics.

These individuals, the ones willing to lay down their lives for our freedom, are a special breed who deserve to be honored and supported at every step in their journey.

There is truly nowhere for parents to go for entertainment for their kids that is free of the radical transgender agenda and now even the Muppets are pushing this sexualized garbage on kids. The Disney Junior kids show Muppet Babies recently featured an episode with Muppet favorite Gonzo going transgender. In the episode, Gonzo’s friend, Summer, happily told Gonzo that she was going to dress like a “princess” for a royal ball. But when Gonzo became excited that he also could wear a dress, Summer said he was a boy so he couldn’t dress like a princess. After he said he wanted to wear a dress, Summer told Gonzo, “But Gonzo, Piggy and I are the princesses, we wear the dresses.” “That’s right! According to the royal handbook, the girls come as princesses, and the boys come as knights,” Piggy added. Gonzo was portrayed as being upset over the conversation. He wanted to dress like a princess, but was told he cannot do so. As Gonzo sulked, Rizzo the Fairy RatFather appeard to magically bestow a gown and mask on Gonzo so he can attend the ball as a female, too. So, Gonzo attends the ball as a mysterious woman named Gonzorella. And then comes the big reveal. https://youtu.be/Rw6h1NZkzQk https://youtu.be/BkyaenLCZ8k “Everyone, there’s something I need to tell you,” Gonzo said, placing a glass slipper on his foot. “The princess who came to your ball tonight was me. I’m Gonzorella!” When Gonzo was questioned about the dress, he answered, “You all expected me to look a certain way.” “I don’t want you to be upset with me. But I don’t want to do things because that’s the way they’ve always been done either. I want to be me,” he said. https://twitter.com/HistoryMuppet/status/1418996764397420544 Unsurprisingly, the Disney videos had comments turned off on its…

American ‘Medical’ Association Argues to Remove Sex from All Birth Certificates

The American Medical Association is now openly saying that there is no such thing as “sex” and it should be removed from birth certificates.

The American Medical Association, an organization supposedly dedicated to science and medicine, is now openly saying that there is no such thing as “sex” and so the designation should be removed from all birth certificates. The AMA once again proves that politics, not science or medicine, is what drives them. https://twitter.com/WebMD/status/1421312166108581888 “Designating sex on birth certificates as male or female, and making that information available on the public portion, perpetuates a view that sex designation is permanent and fails to recognize the medical spectrum of gender identity. This type of categorization system also risks stifling an individual’s self-expression and self-identification and contributes to marginalization and minoritization,” said AMA Board Chair-Elect Sandra Adamson Fryhofer, M.D. Not all doctors were on board with the move. Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Robert Jackson told WebMD Health News that he opposed the measure. “We as physicians need to report things accurately,” Jackson said. “All through medical school, residency, and specialty training we were supposed to delegate all of the physical findings of the patient we’re taking care of. I think when the child is born, they do have physical characteristics either male or female and I think that probably should be on the public record. That’s just my personal opinion.” In any case, it is clear that the AMA is not interested in facts or science. Eliminating gender on birth certificates would put the health of many people in danger when doctors can’t easily discover what biological gender their patients are.
