Also...This does not bode well for our case and is not a true representation of us, but we have a show here called the "Tonight Show" where Jay Leno
goes out on the street and asks simple questions about America from the youth. It goes something like this:
Q. Who is the current Vice President? A. Ron Paul?
Q. Who did we fight in the Vietnam war? A. The Japanese?
Q. Who said "I cannot tell a lie, I chopped down that cherry tree"? A. John F. Kennedy?
Q. The Civil War was fought between what 2 groups? A. The Republicans and the Vatican?
Q. We were at war with the British over what reason? A. We didnt like their tea?
Q. Ok...then what did we do about it? A. We started a holiday called Thanksgiving.
Q. Who were the Pilgrims? A. The actors in a John Wayne movie?
O. Whom did Charles Manson kill? A. It was supposed to be "Marilyn Manson, rt? He killed his whole Manson family and that actor guy.
Q. Oh, ok. Who was that? A. Bill Cosby, rt? Or was it BING Crosby? David Crosby?
Sad, indeed. Its not what we are taught in American Schools...its really about how much we paid attention in class!
