It's Just Thirteen Questions and a Pew Thing

Dear America,

happy monday

we are trying something new today...
I encourage you to take a simple quiz via the Pew Research Center.
It will only take about three minutes -- or less.

Go ahead. Go here.  I'll wait.

It's just thirteen questions.

But if you are anything like me, the quiz itself is nothing; the true test comes immediately upon finish...when you are assaulted with how the average American has responded, with demographic breakdowns and all.

It's just thirteen questions.

Your little G thing got every question right [because they were simple-simon] -- BUT the average American girl, only got 6.8 of the answers correct.   [men, 8.5 out of thirteen]  With 100%, thirteen out of thirteen, I landed in the top 8%; meaning, 92% of the respondents got less than that. [hate to have to spell it out, but kinda feel like I have to be really clear]

When given the answers right in front of you -- with a straightforward, multiple choice selection and no tricks -- only 40% of all women who took the quiz could pick out how many troops have been killed in Afghanistan since the war began; only 36% of all women could emphatically point out that Republicans control the House; only 51% of all women could demonstrate their full awareness of the current unemployment percentage (as promoted by this administration) holding steady at a rocking 9%.  (Did they really think it was five, or the fifteen?)

Quite honestly, this is heartbreaking.

How can we expect to uphold the fundamentals when we can't even keep up with the current events?

Do you really think we can get away with walking around in our own little bubble without responsibility to the whole?

Sure -- maybe this Congress has a NINE percent approval rating (meaning, we dis-approve of 90% of the lot); but what does it matter when 90% of Americans answering thirteen SUPER SIMPLE questions can't even get a hundred percent correct? This only goes to prove one thing -- seems ninety percent of us are walking stupid (or ignorant, or uneducated, or selfish, or ingrates, or spoiled, or looking forward to being communists...to name only seven out of thirteen).

Think about it, but don't hurt yourself; it is only Monday.

Make it a Good Day, G
