Morgan, who started the TARS Club at his high school, said, “ I've been concerned about the lack of interest shown by kids my age so I have decided to do something about it.

Speakers include: Rear Admiral James Symonds, Commanding Officer of USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) and Commander Navy Region Northwest; Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, Captain Michael DeWitt, Commanding Officer Navy Operational Support Center.
The Battle of Midway is often called the turning point of the war in the Pacific; the Battle of Midway was fought over a small dot of sand and coral in the middle of the Pacific Ocean that the Japanese high command considered essential to their conquest and control of the Pacific. With the capture of Midway Atoll, the Japanese Navy sought to lure the American Navy's aircraft carriers to their annihilation in open battle and finish the job they started at Pearl Harbor. Vastly outnumbered, the American Navy was able to pull off a surprise of their own.

·         Obamacare 'Navigators': Another Sebelius Snitch Brigade?  U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius controls a $54 million slush fund to hire thousands of "navigators," "in-person assisters" and counselors who will propagandize and enroll Obamacare recipients in government-run health insurance exchanges.

·        Can You Imagine Travis & Davy Crockett Surrending Their Guns? Can one imagine the response of Travis and Crockett to the suggestion that they disarm themselves? In truth, Santa Anna’s assault against the Alamo was mostly to do with confiscating the Texans’ firearms. The battle at the Alamo was, in fact, Travis and Crockett’s response to Santa Anna’s attempted gun confiscation. As with America’s separation from Great Britain, the Texas patriots drew their line in the sand (literally) over the issue of gun confiscation...by Pastor Chuck Baldwin

Will he care? Come to think of it, was he even paying attention when you were showing him those special shoes you wore for him?
