6. What are the first 10 amendments to the Constitution called?
The Preamble
The Bill of Rights
First Ten Amendments
Lewis “Scooter” Libby
Ha!

And once I hit submit, the thing wouldn't load. I don't know what I scored, but I think I did pretty well.

not to give an answer away, but to be president you have to have been born in the US. if you're naturalized, you can never be president, regardless of how long you've lived here.

i scored 95%. i would have scored 100% if i still remembered every single amendment in the constitution like i did in high school. i was given a copy of the constitution for my US government class and had to study it constantly.

btw, the questions you get asked for the citizenship test are almost never this hard. especially if the immigration officer can tell your english is not that great. they usually give you questions like "what are the three branches of the US government?". i only got asked like 5 questions for my test.

I slipped on the chief justice of the Supreme Court (embarrassingly) and the last two.

Yeah, but if you were born here, then moved, you can't run unless you've lived here 14 years.

i think the department of homeland security would prefer to deport those with high scores. you know, the ones who know what's actually in the bill of rights.

I missed questions 3, 5, 8, 19, 20.

I'm a natural born citizen so I suppose it's only natural that I missed #19. I am embarrased that I missed #20.

I only knew the name b/c I helped a certain special someone fill out the petition for political asylum, and my best guess proved correct.

They don't ask any important questions, such as:

Who was Joe Hill, and who murdered him?

What and when was Haymarket?

Who Started the Korean War, and why?

Name 3 defendants in the Watergate Scandal

When did American corporations achieve 'person status'?

When was slavery offically abolished in the US? When was it eliminated in reality?

What American political party proposed giving freed slaves suffrage? What party was opposed?


gosh, we could go on and on...

Answer: 1926 (I think)

In NM and AZ, Indians were barred from voting until 1947.

Speaking of Kirk's loverman ways, wasn't there a sketch on In Living Color parodying this? Sulu complaining, "Captain, you get all the women, even the ugly ones." Jim Carrey as Kirk mugging away in the captain's seat.
