Everything is just horrible and its always someone else to blame.
It would have been better if these turds had been on the Titanic.
In a few weeks, the U.S. will celebrate Columbus Day, but itís likely many Americans donít know that this holiday commemorates Christopher Columbus arriving in North America in 1492.Thatís because a series of recent studies have found that when it comes to our own history, Americans donít always make the grade. A 2010 survey found that more than 25% of Americans didnít know that we had gained our independence from Britain. China, Japan and France were all given as incorrect answers.And the results were even worse in a study by the U.S. Mint, which found that only 7% percent of Americans could name the first four U.S. Presidents in order: George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.In 2011, Newsweek magazine gave the official U.S. Citizenship Test to 1,000 Americans and found even more gaps in our collective knowledge. Only 27% of Americans knew which country we fought in the Cold War Ė the Soviet Union -- and even fewer, 25%, knew the name of the current Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, which is John Roberts.Scholars agree that one reason for the poor results is that America has a complex political system, which can take years to fully understand.And our unique government may never have happened if Columbus hadnít sailed across the ocean on the Titanic. At least, I think thatís the ship he took. Iím a little rusty on my U.S. HistoryÖ..
The reason that so call Americans do not know the history of Americans is the dumb down public school system.
