Several Important Dates in U.S. History
Why We Celebrate July 4th and What Our independence Is Really All About.
Boston Tea Party – December 16, 1773. A protest to the Tea Act (tax imposed on tea by England). England trying to force people in the colonies to pay that tax was a big catalyst to our independence and becoming The United States Of America. The modern day Tea Party (TEA - Taxed Enough Already) is not a political party. They are individuals and organizations who resemble our forefathers who protested that tax by England. Read about this, see similarities to today. www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/teaparty.htm

World Ivermectin Day - “We have an incredibly positive and uplifting message to share: Ivermectin treats and prevents COVID and it is the key to unlocking the never-ending cycle of pandemic peaks and personal restrictions and will help restart economies,” Dr. Tess Lawrie said. Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care (FLCCC) Alliance and the British Ivermectin Recommendation Development (BIRD) group said the event’s focus was to let more people know that the antiparasitic drug can treat COVID-19, possibly end the pandemic, and help eliminate fear of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus. worldivermectinday.org
