Amusing. Newsweek: “How dumb are we?”

After giving 1,000 adults the citizenship test, Newsweek released the results:

They’re the sort of scores that drive high-school history teachers to drink. When NEWSWEEK recently asked 1,000 U.S. citizens to take America’s official citizenship test, 29 percent couldn’t name the vice president. Seventy-three percent couldn’t correctly say why we fought the Cold War. Forty-four percent were unable to define the Bill of Rights. And 6 percent couldn’t even circle Independence Day on a calendar

62% passed. D minus. No surprise given that unions control American education. What struck me as funny was this subhead:

The country’s future is imperiled by our ignorance.

Really? Without that ignorant populace, your dreamboat POTUS would never have been elected. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. Hopenchange! 

Just sayin’.

  1. Did you read the whole article? The solutions to this problem were straight out of the socialism handbook according to the author of some book.

    He wants the schools to be headed by the feds and state run media.

    Hmm, which is the better choice, being surrounded by idiots or the socialist utopia? I would have to take the idiots.
