    Okay you red-blooded Americans... let's see how you do on this test:

    Very interesting questions.

    How well would you do if you took the citizenship test. <FONT face="Comic Sans MS"><FONT color=black><?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com[​IMG]

    Supposedly 96% of all High School seniors FAILED this test...

    AND if that's not bad enough, 50+% of all individuals over 50
    did too!!, and we WONDER why

    Take the test and be surprised at what we don't know.

    I missed 3, but they were pretty obscure in the scope of things.

    1. Didn't know Eisenhower was born in Texas...who really cares.

    2. Didn't know the 21st amendment prohibited liquor imports in States that were dry....why would it ? Under the 10th amendment, States or the People, have all power not specifically given to the Federal Govt ( in theory ).......so they can ban Volvo's, for example, if they feel the need without "permission" of the Feds.

    3. Missed the "Number of Presidents impeached" question......wasn't sure if they were using it in the correct sense, in which impeached simply means "charged" for trial by Congress or if they meant actually removed from office.....and I guessed wrong on their use......they did use it correctly.

    So I don't feel too bad.

    I didn't know about Eisenhower either

    My understanding (may or may not be correct) of the 21st is that, in addition to repealing prohibition, it returned control of liquor laws to the states.

    Impeachment is the accusation by the house but removal from office requires conviction by the senate.
