I don't think ANYONE from Owensboro could even get ONE answer right...no multiple choice then.
Most people who come on topix can't even spell their name. They are all so ignorant.
I dare anyone to take the quiz and tell us their score.
I couldnt pass it

Wow! So some tea baggers are actually still dusting off the old TelePrompTer line? I suppose no politician used them before he did? Like an eloquent speaker such as W didn't?

<quoted text>You picked Chicago lite to move to? That's a shame. There reasons the students there are so unprepared are myriad but the most glaring examples are because of the f**ked up bussing plan they've been using for years and gross misspending of funds on administration rather than education. Really,what school principle is either so screwed up they need a vice principle and/or a couple assistant principles? Just how many secretaries DOES the school board need in the information age where computers are the norm? Finally,get the politics out of education and teach those kids,require uniforms and re-institute discipline to the classroom. What many fail to realize even the BEST teachers are only as good as the students/material they are given.
Well we are not all born equal. Some are smarter than others. Many kids are failing the education system as it is. If there were no strafication in our ability to learn, no other inequality would exist. There needs to be people in the buttom in order to have people in the top. If some kids just arent smart, nothing you do will change that. If the kid really wants to learn, he will, no amount of money will change anything.. If your kid is failing school, maybe you should blame yourself and not the education system.

Cracker says that doing the same thing over and over hoping for different results is the definition of insanity. If that is the case, then there is surely a plethora of insane nonsense being posted on here. Self Portrait?

It's easy to tell the crazy Rush Limbaugh listeners when they use words like "Messiah". Rush repeats that mantra on his show daily. Every post the Mumsfordville troll makes is just jargon repeated from the Limbaugh show and childish name calling.
Let me get this straight. You just used the terms "crazy Rush Limbaugh listeners", "the Mumsfordville troll" to describe the people you hate. Isn't that "childish name calling", or are you just 'special'?

well it's too fun not to poke fun at the democrats and watch them go
10 kinds of stupid. As soon as I posted my opinion, their collective panties all wadded up. I'm sure the 8th grade test is fun to think about and everything, but it's not near as fun as watching
these geniuses go into pure stupid mode because of one sentence.

LOL...so true...but they still don't get it. They will just repeat what Rachael Madcow tells them to say. That's how they roll. Is is funny but it's kind of sad how stupid they are and what their stupidity does to their kids lives. Oh well! lmao

I now know why would have difficulty, your reading limited. That would explain why you wouldn't get any of the questions. Hint Grammar is 3rd part of the test.

What words are that exactly? Hint. If you want to critique people for being partisan. It's best not to repeat verbatim the tired old republican bumper sticker slogans that your entire paragraph consisted of...just saying.:)
And you would fare better in the intelligence category if you didn't hang on to those old "whaa Republicans" excuses you have been crying about for years to make your fairy tale seem plausible...just saying...right back at ya!

Well, Hyden poster. The only waking of the dead you seem to be concerned with is the GOP dead rhetoric. Blind parisans like yourself aren't doing much to help with that.
if you notice i have not got any body that i follow and bow to in the gov.like you do.i speak when i can see things that is true and has a 90% chance of happening.by the way look at the stock mkt. how much its down and then check out oil and gold prices.i have said 6 month ago the mkts would start tumbling down and be at 600 by the next 2 yrs.that i admit i could have been wrong about i think its going be before the new yr. begins.and oil and food and other things will be sky rocketing.and its all apart of the plan.now lets see if that don't awake some sleepy hollow fast.
