Scott Walker Omits Great Britain in Explanation of Independence Day

Most Americans on this last July 4th had a least a passing understanding that we celebrate Independence Day as a national holiday marking the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain and King George III on July 4, 1776.

Our founding fathers decided that we had "certain unalienable Rights" such as Life, Liberty and so forth and to borrow from the Declaration, "Governments are instituted among Men, [sic] deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."

Scott Walker, governor of Wisconsin, does not even know the basic facts of our government, certainly not our history. See below
[Came across this display of Scott Walker's utter ignorance and vacuity via Jeff Simpson, who has included a School House Rock video to help the poor man.]

Knowing Walker is a lightweight, I asked Dan Bice on April 18 2013 in a Political Chat column if Bice thought Walker would get savaged by the national press [for being so, in a word, dumb].

Bice wrote in part: "Gov. Walker is not an ideas guy like Mitch Daniels. You saw that during his recent Sunday morning TV appearance discussing gay marriage. Walker trotted out the idea of having govt get out of the marriage business and leaving that to religions. Not a great idea for any number of reasons. A couple of errors like that during a presidential debate could earn him the distinction of being the Gov. Perry of the 2016 campaign."

I think judged in terms of being a lightweight, "not an ideas guy," Walker has already earned the distinction of benighted clown.

We the people decide what our government is, its powers come from our consent, and we the people certainly do not want the Republican Party to decide when and whether a woman decides to give birth.

The problem for now of course is that Walker also happens to be a misogynist, extremist Tea Bagger and and corrupt public official selling away Wisconsin to the highest bidder, besides not being so very bright.
