    I would just like to make it known here that tonight as I read chapter IV of The Hobbit to my 7-year-old daughter (who is LOVING it so far) I used my best Donald Trump impression for the part of the nasty Great Goblin. She thought it was hilarious, for different reasons than I, and we were both laughing our heads off. Times like these you’ve gotta find humor where you can.

    Here is a good example of feeding fear. Listening to this president, you would think there is no hope for our country. Heap on another dose of Hannity and Fox News and the amygdala would be firing at an awesome rate.

    The Washington Post is reporting The Trump administration plan changes to citizenship test.

    How about we pass a law that states the President needs to pass the citizenship test immediately before being sworn and we all get to watch him take the test and see his answers in real time.

    I think it’s a pretty safe bet Trump couldn’t pass the test.

    Our president should be required to pass the citizenship test. My guess is past Democratic Presidents could pass the test.

    Trump cancels appearance at the NAACP National Convention in Detroit.

    I’m sure Trump could pass the citizenship test even better than it's ever been passed before, because he’s the greatest citizen who ever citizened in the U.S. Oh, and he’d hire his own proctor, and if by chance he still couldn’t pass, he’d just lie and say he did (150%!!!) anyway.

    I did, :praise: but this was 42 yrs ago. I probably would flunk the test today. :shhh:. The immigration officer asked me like 18-20 Qs :o and I answered every one of them correctly. She almost made me sing the Star-Spangled Banner. :bigsmile:

    I think it depends on your age. They seem to take it easy on the elderly. My dad didn't apply for citizenship till he was like 62 yrs old. He said the immigration officer only asked him like 5 easy Qs.

    The study was done on native born citizens not immigrants, the old ones answered 74% correctly, the young ones not so much. ;)2

    This is what we get for putting so much emphasis on STEM education at elementary and secondary school at the expense of other important courses, particularly civics. It's really a shame. (And I say this as a math teacher.)
