July 2 is the actual birth day of the United States. John Adams proof thereof.
On July 3, Adams wrote his wife stating: “The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding generations, as the great anniversary Festival.”
The reason people believe it was July 4 is because the first printing of the Declaration of Independence took place two days after the Continental Congress voted to declare independence. Ergo, it is by accident we celebrate July 4 as Independence Day rather than July 2.
Rabbi Barry Silver has asked the Palm beach County School Board to ban the Bible. He is relying on Gov. DeSantis’ position that the school system should not be used to “indoctrinate” children. Silver is opposed to a number of things in the Bible.
A rabbi wanting to ban the Bible does not set right with me. His Jewish people have confronted and fought anti-Semitism forever. Does not make sense to me how he can be anti-Bible. Leaves me confused.
Bess Levin’s 6/29 Vanity Fair article is titled: “Trump, Who Has The Mind Of A Child, Still Thinks The Classified Documents He Got Indicted For Keeping Belong To Him.”
Trump so believes and wants his attorneys to get them back for him.
On this day 1938, the grand opening of the new Overseas Highway was held on the Bahia Honda Bridge. The new highway used some of the old railroad bridges. The purpose of the new highway was to eliminate auto ferries.

Enjoy your Sunday!
