Save 7-Year-Old "BOY Ja.D.Y." From Chemical Castration

UPDATE: In light of the judge's unconstitutional gag order on Jeff, we must clarify the following: This petition is run from outside the US and was not written or managed by Jeff at any point in time. UPDATE: Due to complaints by the opposition, who wish to stop our efforts to protect this child, Change.org first took away our comment section and now have sent us legal notice to remove the picture and name of "BOY Ja.D.Y." To learn more about "BOY Ja.D.Y." visit http://savejames.com/ To The Texas Senate Committee on Health & Human Services: Citizens across the United States of America and around the world are outraged to learn that the 255th Judicial Family District Court in Texas is considering a petition brought by Anne Georgulas the mother of 6-year-old "BOY Ja.D.Y." to: Deny his father Jeffrey Younger custody of his child. To order “social transitioning” therapy to prepare "BOY Ja.D.Y." for chemical castration at age 8. We the undersigned, demand that the Governor and Texas Legislature step in immediately to save "BOY Ja.D.Y." and all other children under the threat of "social transitioning." Sex change surgery on young children is a horrific form child-abuse that is liable to cause "BOY Ja.D.Y." and countless other children grave suffering in the years ahead. The petition to the honorable court can be read here:  The facts of the case from http://savejames.com  "BOY Ja.D.Y." is a 6-year-old boy – his mother is attempting to change his gender. "BOY Ja.D.Y." prefers to be a boy, but since the age of 3, his mother has chosen to dress him as a girl, and call him by the name “Luna.” She has enrolled him as a girl. He is currently in 1st grade. The teachers and administrators know that he is a boy, but the other parents and students are unaware He is undergoing “social transitioning” therapy to prepare him for chemical castration at age 8. "BOY Ja.D.Y." father, Jeff is fighting to protect his son all alone. His mother has support and financial backing. Jeff needs both financial help with legal fees and help networking to find expert witnesses who will help him keep his son safe. The court is requiring Jeff to pay for transgender therapy and the future sexual mutilation of his son. Courts have enjoined Jeff from dressing "BOY Ja.D.Y." as a boy at school, from teaching him that he is a boy, and from sharing religious teachings on sexuality and gender. He has been accused of ABUSE for saying that his son is a boy.

Save Net Neutrality

     Net neutrality preserves the right to communicate freely on the internet. Net neutrality requires internet service providers (ISPs) to give everyone equal access to everything you use on the internet-- email, watching videos, reading news articles, and listening to music. It prohibits ISPs from slowing down, speeding up, or blocking content on the internet. It is how the internet has always worked. Unfortunately, this is being threatened by the FCC- the Federal Communications Commission.     If the FCC ends net neutrality, then how we’ve used the internet changes completely. ISPs will be able to block content, slow down internet access, and favor websites over others. It will also end the Title II of the Communications Act, which charges ISPs for blocking content or slowing down internet and creating “fast lanes.” “Fast lanes” would allow certain internet service providers to give internet access faster than any other service providers. Ending net neutrality could have global impacts and change the way the world shares information and changes how information is processed.     As high school seniors about to enter into the real world, we cannot imagine what life would be like if we did not have net neutrality. Net neutrality allows us to use our freedom of speech on a platform that is like no other. I can go on the internet and research something without the fear that an ISP has favored a certain website that is completely biased one way or blocked certain websites.     If you believe we should have free access to the internet, sign this petition to show your support. This issue is time sensitive and must be addressed. Support free and open internet! Thank you for your support, Katie Lemon

Hold Military Moving Companies Accountable

An Open Letter To Our Elected Officials - UPDATE 1 to the petition: https://militaryspousechronicles.com/2018/10/02/pcs-petition-brings-change/ Every year thousands of military service members and their families pack up and move on military orders. All of their memories, heirlooms, worldly processions, keepsakes, pro-gear, kids toys, and some useless stuff, otherwise known as household goods (HHGs) gets packed up by contracted strangers, loaded onto a truck and driven across country. If you are on the lucky side of things, your HHGs will arrive with a few scratches and maybe a broken bowl.  However, most everyone ends up on the other side. Boxes will be unloaded smashed and torn, furniture will come off broken in multiple pieces, and other items will just go missing. It will be brushed off as “don’t worry, you can just file a claim”, and while that might be true, there are things that money just can’t fix.  Money can’t replace the broken hutch inherited from my grandmother. Money can’t fix the missing foot board from the custom made bed. Money can’t fix my discontinued, now smashed in to pieces wedding china. And money can’t fix the box of my children’s baby memories box that never arrived.  I know, we should just leave these things with family! While that is a good thought, it’s not always possible. Some service members just don’t have the family available to leave these things!  Every year, thousands of service members  file claims with moving companies. Within the last 2 years the average claim has been around $10,000, with an average of only 50-60% of that being paid out.  Over the last 5 years, the PCS season has become more and more horrendous to deal with. The major moving companies being awarded the contracts, often sub contract out to smaller, local companies. Many of these companies do not understand how military bases work- usually sending drivers or crews who have a felony background, can’t access post, or a truck that has expired registration.  These companies also do a poor job in packing and handling of the HHGs. Many times the crew will pack as quickly as possible to get to the next job to make more money. In doing so, things are usually packed improperly, allowing for damage to occur. When loaded into the truck or unloaded at the storage facility or destination, everything is usually just thrown around without a care. When Service members and families speak up about how things are being handled, we are usually scolded, degraded, and told to just let them do their job.  In one of our recent moves we had a mattress come off the truck soaking wet. When I questioned it and ask what my son was suppose to sleep on, the driver took a furniture pad off the dresser and said he could sleep on that.  When we moved to our current location, I questioned the driver about my high value list, and the markings on the inventory about the furniture. The response I received was “this is just how we do it.” Then when we arrived, our range bags complete with range equipment were missing.  Our military service members and their families already sacrifice so much for this country. The deployments, holidays missed, birthdays not celebrated, their children’s firsts moments, training time, and sometimes even their life. Is it so much to ask that moving companies take a little more care in handling our memories? Is it so much to ask our elected officials to step in and protect our service members from the headache and heartache during a PCS?  I challenge you to start holding these companies accountable. I challenge you to step up your game and ease the worry burden on our military families.   MilitarySpouseChronicles #PCSChronicles #MemoriesSmashed

Free Michael Phuong Minh Nguyen

FREE U.S. CITIZEN MICHAEL PHUONG NGUYEN, HELD BY VIETNAMESE GOVT WITHOUT CAUSE Xin xem ở phía dưới cho tiếng Việt We wish to bring your attention to the plight of Michael Phuong Minh Nguyen.  On June 27, 2018, Michael traveled to Vietnam to visit friends and family. However, he did not return on his scheduled flight.  Through various sources, he is presumed to be currently being detained and imprisoned by the Vietnamese government. As of July 27th, Michael has already been missing for 21 days.  The government there refuses to acknowledge his detainment, or share any information about his condition. As of today, we have not been able to confirm his whereabouts or what he was charged with. For any government to incarcerate anyone without any probable cause is a blatant violation of human rights and of international law, especially if the detained is a citizen of another country. Michael, 54, is a U.S. Citizen, father of 4 daughters, an independent business man and an active member of his community and church.  His family is very concern for his safety. We, as U.S. citizens, hereby demand an immediate and unconditional release of Michael Phuong Minh Nguyen. Failure to do so only serves to further discredit the Vietnamese government in the eyes of the international community, and equally important, in the eyes Vietnamese people. We respectfully asked for your assistance in this cause.   ĐÒI HỎI TRẢ TỰ DO CHO CÔNG DÂN HOA KỲ MICHAEL PHƯƠNG MINH NGUYỄN ĐANG BỊ CHÍNH PHỦ VIỆT NAM BẮT GIAM KHÔNG LÝ DO Gia đình chúng tôi khẩn thiết kêu gọi sự quan tâm của tất cả mọi người đến hoàn cảnh của chồng và cha chúng tôi, anh Michael Phương Minh Nguyễn. Từ ngày 27 tháng Sáu năm 2018, anh Michael Phương đã về Việt Nam thăm viếng bạn bè và gia đình. Anh đã không trở về trên chuyến bay đã ấn định. Qua nhiều nguồn tin khác nhau, chúng tôi được biết anh đang bị chính quyền Việt Nam bắt giữ và giam cầm. Tính cho đến ngày 27 tháng Bảy, anh Michael Phương đã biệt tăm 21 ngày. Chính quyền Việt Nam từ chối xác nhận việc giam giữ, hay chia sẻ bất cứ tin tức gì về tình trạng của anh. Và cho đến hôm nay, chúng tôi cũng không xác định được nơi nhà giam nào và anh bị cáo buộc về tội gì. Bất cứ chính quyền nào giam giữ người không duyên cớ đã là một vi phạm trầm trọng đến nhân quyền và luật lệ quốc tế, đặc biệt hơn nữa người bị giam là công dân của một quốc gia khác. Anh Michael Phương, 54 tuổi, là một công dân Hoa Kỳ có bốn người con gái, một doanh nhân độc lập, và còn là một thành viên tích cực phục vụ trong cộng đồng nơi gia đình anh cư ngụ. Gia đình chúng tôi hiện đang cực kỳ lo lắng cho sự an toàn của anh. Chúng tôi, những công dân Hoa Kỳ, đòi hỏi chính quyền Việt Nam trả tự do tức khắc và vô điều kiện cho anh Michael Phương Minh Nguyễn. Việc từ chối sự yêu cầu chính đáng này càng làm chính quyền Việt Nam suy giảm uy tín trong cộng đồng quốc tế; và cũng ngang tầm mức quan trọng là cái nhìn của những người Việt Nam. Chúng tôi khẩn khoản kêu gọi sự hỗ trợ của quý vị trong công tác nhân quyền này.
