87 citizenship attained with distinction.  :lol:

That last bit where you match the saying with an event or person gave me some issue, wasn't quite sure about manzanar.

Oh and couldn't figure out which was Kaegan or Sotomayor, I swear the pics look the same.  :ttoung:

Your Citizenship Score: 51
 few screed me up, and of all the ones that bugged me the most?
12. Match the reference with its meaning:
 Commonsense, I still don't know who or what that was a reference to..

And I'm sorry, MLK should not be in there, he was not a representative of Govt, nor did he write Legislation, granted he is important to a minority of the people, he was not around during our founding, he was merely an actor of influence on the population.

3. Do you contribute to the health of your community in any of the following ways? (Select all that apply.)
Volunteering
Participation in local government
Membership in a civic group
Philanthropy
Participation in a political campaign

It's funny how often HAVING A JOB doesn't find a place on these lists.

We had a part-time high school student who asked for time off work because his school required him to spend a week "serving the community."   

:blink:  I asked him what the Hell he thought we were paying him to do.

I saw an IQ test where one of the questions was: When is Martin Luther King Day?

So if you haven't studied up on that particular Baptist preacher (or else have a government "job" that gives that day off) then you're not only a bad citizen... you're also stupid.

 :lol:  I remember when the union ask for Martin Luther King Day off in union negotiations.  After two weeks the company ask when was it!  NOT one union person could tell the company what the date was.  So the company said no!  The company give them one personal holiday to use as they like.

Lowering the bar as usual.
Depending on who you ask when mothers day is, some will tell you the first of every month. :scared:
