To my fellow Americans:  Happy Independence Day!

I wanted to share this with you if you haven’t already seen it:

Whenever anyone says “This is history they don’t teach in school,” s/he is really saying, “I didn’t pay attention to shit in my history classes.”

Maybe he is.  Interesting how he uses original documents to come to his conclusions, though.

This doesn’t seem like a reliable rule to discern with.

No maybe about it.  His book was so thoroughly debunked his christian publishing house cancelled it, and no one else would take it. Then he lied about being on the Wayne and Schuster publishing list. Now he’s selling them himself, probably to folks who believe his revisionist BS. He is a master sophist.

Your comments prompted me to do some research… It looks like he’s had some problems for sure.  Thanks for shedding light on that!  Hopefully Ben will become aware of those problems if he isn’t already.

In spite of that bummer, Happy Independence Day!!  It’s my favorite holiday by far.

Anyway, Happy 4th. My hometown of Belton, Texas does a pretty big parade. Yes, there will probably be one group of Confederates going by, and I’ll avert my eyes and hold my nose. Yes, there will be some MAGA hats. But for the most part it will be a happy celebration of our nation and our freedoms.  “We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men were created equal, and that they were endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  Long live the USA, and long live freedom. 

Uh, and may the US women win their 4th World Cup!!

Yes, Happy Independence Day! I got to see the fireworks here for Canada Day, and if I go over to Dallas Road I’ll be able to seem the July 4 fireworks over in Port Arthur. I like fireworks, pretend that they are alien space invaders being shot down.

Some fireworks displays are really inspiring!  I really like watching them too.  Thank you for the happy wishes, sir!
