UPDATED: More Proof Gov. Scott Walker is a Blockhead Dummy

Not a "Koch Sucker" eh??? Think gain...
(listen to Walker here - in his own words)

This update is mind boggling to say the least about Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) who is by all accounts and most standards is: Staunchly Anti-Union, Anti-Public Employees, Public Schools and Public Teachers, a Rabid Homophobe, total Dümbäss, and now, well, just Plain Stupid:
Wisconsinites Blast Gov. Scott Walker’s Stadium Deal as Outrageous

Depending on who you ask, building a new, publicly financed basketball stadium for the Milwaukee Bucks is either a horrendous example of corporate welfare and official corruption, or a chance to reinvigorate an economically depressed city. The county held its first public meeting recently to night to discuss the proposal to use tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to keep the team in the city. The large crowd took issue with many aspects of the deal, which would sell public land valued at nearly $9 million for $1 dollar to the team’s billionaire owners, post grabbed from Think Progress.

I note: A piss poor, but classic example of a GOP wheeler and dealer (for the top): Stick it the people, while saying you are protecting the people and their tax dollars while with the other hand, giving huge tax breaks (or whatever this deal is called) to the top crust (read: filthy rich) … so, you gotta luv the GOP: They always standing on principle and and they are not very selective about whose backs they stand on to appease the top … now that’s what I call "being principled" isn’t it? You bet cha’… (Damn I don’t believe I used that phrase – smile).

Now more key pieces data on this dimwit.

Update of the following post: From the NY Times:

Behind Walker, a Longstanding Conservative Alliance Against Unions

Walker Backs Constitutional Amendment Allowing Ban Same Sex Marriage

But, first this historical background about what Walker in essence now proposes and that is to amend the Constitution and allow discrimination against gay Americans who want to marry and seek happiness.

1.  The Constitution in Plessy v. Ferguson sanctioned and blessed discrimination against Americans in the USSC ruling in 1896 that basically said: “Separate but Equal” was okay and the law of the land.

2.  That same high-court attitude prevailed and did not change until 1954 in Brown v. Board of Education ruling in Topeka, KS that said “Separate but Equal” was not okay, thus overturning Plessy.

Now, the current story: Walker who is clearly anti-everything and everyone in public life (e.g., Unions, Teachers, Public Employees, et al) advocates a back to future attitude to allow the Constitution to once again legally discriminate, here in part:

WASHINGTON -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) said Sunday that he supports a constitutional amendment that would bar the Supreme Court from granting marriage equality rights nationwide.
The Supreme Court is expected to issue a decision this month that could grant, for once and for all, same-sex couples the right to wed across the country. But Walker said on ABC's "This Week" that he would support amending the constitution to protect states that still want to ban same-sex marriage.
“I personally believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. If the court decides that, the only next approach is for those who are supporters of marriage being defined as between one man and one woman is ultimately to consider pursuing a constitutional amendment,” Walker said, then added: “That the decision on defining marriage should be left up to the states.”
Same-sex marriage is legal in Wisconsin. Walker has said that he voted for the state's constitutional ban on marriage equality in 2006, which was overturned eight years later by the courts.  
In April, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who is also running for president, introduced legislation to establish a constitutional amendment protecting states that want to bar same-sex marriage.  
Both of these men should never be allowed anywhere near the White House … they advocate very sick and dangerous change the Constitution.  

Thanks for stopping back - I am sure more updates on this man (or men) will follow.
