    Did you skip a couple of questions? Somehow the arithmetic doesn't tally....I wonder if I put up a dodgy link?

    @Dunerunner Ah....well I doubt George Washington was around for WW1. ;)

    I missed the number of Constitutional Amendments by 1, got the number of senators wrong, and senatorial duration of office incorrect.

    It did the same thing to me as well - maybe an artifact of NoScript? Missed the numbers of Amendments by one as well, but was guessing that one anyway. I wonder how well we Yanks would do on a similar quiz about Australia or even our neighbor Canada? Likely not so good.

    I doubt that the kind of knowledge test of the kind used by the US and Australian nations actually tests the understanding and application of the core values and laws governing citizens in either country...they just test the ability to remember facts...learned by rote. Such tests merely assess one's memory for historical trivia...not comprehension of the underpinnings of a citizen's rights and more importantly, responsibilities; nor any demonstrated commitment to being a faithful and loyal citizen.

    [LMAO][sheep][LMAO] Whaaat?

    'In the arvo last Chrissy the relos rocked up for a barbie, some bevvies and a few snags. After a bit of a Bex and a lie down we opened the pressies, scoffed all the chockies, bickies and lollies. Then we drained a few tinnies and Mum did her block after Dad and Steve had a barney and a bit of biffo.'

    We'll give chelly a green card for the amusement he'd bring in.

    I think you'd pass the Aussie lingo test....bonus points for actually knowing what those idioms mean. ;)

    Aw BT...I don't hate TRump any more than I'd hate any other developmentally delayed person...I just don't much care for the way he (and his cabinet cronies) are screwing over the US citizenry. That some American citizenry prefer his brand of kool aid is neither here nor there. :rolleyes:

    Rest assured, I won't be seeking US citizenship any time soon....but I don't discount applying for a tourist visa some time in the future...:unsure:

    Don't worry, I have a cunning plan....a measure of sedation might disguise the wild eyes at least for the duration of the test.

    I think it more a case of bemusement than amusement ;)

    I find it amusing that non-Americans say that they don't want to be American, but they can do better on the citizenship exam than most Americans... Kind of makes you wonder why? I personally don't care how many amendments to the constitution that we have, but I do know we need to either change, or re-interpret the 14th.

    Very unfortunately, their education is better than ours. Most of them know more about us than we do of them.

    Actually, Our education System was just fine, up until it was taken over by the Liberal Teaching College Professors.... Them, and the NEA, have ruined our Primary and Secondary Education Systems... but if one has the drive, one can still get a quality Education in the USA, just by learning to READ, Wrire, and Do Arithmatic.... Once those are mastered, all the rest, is nothing more than JUST STUDY....

    That takeover was over 25 years ago, thus not a damn bit of a wonder we are where we are.
