Bloviating Zeppelin: What's Your Score?

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

What's Your Score?

Take the test and see how you do.

I made a 95% -- missed question #2.

How did you do? Did you pass? Are you an American citizen?


Did you pick up on my clue?

I'm so sorry for you BZ,
questions like these are a breeze to me.
I stand tall,
I got them all
It's a matter of pride, you see.

VW, that's me

the sad thing is I know a lot of Americans would flunk this quiz. and what's more, they wouldn't care either.

VW: yeah, I screwed the pooch on number two, darn it!

Mark: hate to say it, you're quite correct, the bulk of Americans are ignorant and couldn't care less.

Yeah, but ask'em about the latest entertainment gossip and they'll pass every time!

Hi Bloviating Zeppelin. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your comment, which I appreciate.

I received the clue well - immigration.

I studied Constitutional Law so I scored a 100%. I believe INS should hire me so I could make that test harder. Of course I am sure that was a sampling, but I say still too easy.

Great find and thanks for this most interesting little test for your readers. We must keep up with our civic knowledge you know! :)

I did WAAY better than I thought I'd do..90%. WHO KNEW?

QUESTION: How could Delaware have been one of the original States if it's not a State now? I thought it was a 'District'??

I got 100% but I wonder what the Obama would get. He seems to have his own secret constitution.

Shoprat's a genius! I would love to see the results of Obama taking this test!

I missed two, BZ. #2 and 19, but shouldn't have missed 19, because I knew the right answer.

I'm positive that most Americans would fail this test miserably.

Darn, I got 64%. I need to brush up on US history, then again, I may know more than a lot of Americans (I am from Singapore).

BTW, hello BZ. I found your blog through American and Proud. I'll add you to my blog roll.

I did have to read a couple of the questions a second times.

You answered 100% of questions correctly.

Just lucky, I guess.

Hey, "z" - Delaware is a state, you must be thinking of the District of Columbia!

Isaac Lu: hey, thanks for taking the test and welcome aboard; comment and visit frequently! And yes, I'm certain most Americans, particularly the younger generations, wouldn't do half as well as you did.
