From the VOMITORIUM
I have been reading and writing about the impeachment thing….to me it is just a replay of the 1990s and the Clinton thing…..I find it amazing that in a country that is so proud of our Constitution……I mean it is a prop for every damn political campaign I have every heard……that so few people know what Civics is all about.
When I was in grade school and into high school American government was a required course and without it one could not move on to the next level…..apparently those days are long gone….
The lack of Civics education shows in the people we elect and the people we listen to for the “news”…..we are a nation readily willing to believe whatever some high paid pundit wants us to believe….that is pathetic…nay it is disgusting!
Most Americans can not pass a simple civics quiz….
… lawmakers in Oregon proposed a bill that would require all public-school students in the state to pass the civics portion of the U.S. naturalization test before receiving their high-school diploma. Under Senate Bill 1038, Oregon students would have to correctly answer 60 of the 100 civics questions to pass. A student could take the test as many times as necessary to reach that threshold and could begin taking the test even before high school. Just last month, Alabama, Arkansas, and Kentucky each enacted similar laws, joining at least 15 other states with such civics requirements for high-school graduation, according to the Joe Foss Institute’s Civics Education Initiative.
Just how much do you know about our way of governing?
This is the test given by the naturalization service…..take this one and see what you truly do not know about the government…..https://www.uscis.gov/citizenship/educators/educational-products/100-civics-questions-and-answers-mp3-audio-english-version
Personally, I would support mandatory civics in grade school through high school……I think this subject is as important as the economics many schools teach our youngsters.
It is sad that so many of our elected officials have NO idea what the Constitution says or what the duties of their office are all about…..and these are the people protecting this country from harm from external as well as internal problems.
It is sad and pathetic that these people know so little.
