Did you know that we celebrate on the 4th of July because we declared our independence from the south? Me either.


I have to tell you that part of me is not surprised at all by this video but it really does scare me how uneducated our fellow Americans can be. Listen, I'm not the smartest guy in the world but I pride myself on knowing why I am celebrating any major holiday, especially when it is one that involves fireworks!

These people in San Diego however are not as emphatic about the 4th of July. Much like the late night talk shows sometimes go out into the streets to interview the general public and perhaps ask them questions that most people should know, this guy Mark Dice went out to ask people things like "Why do we celebrate on July 4th?" and "What country did we declare our independence from?". You will be surprised at how many people did not know the answers to these questions.
