The latest howler from our beloved government: a revised citizenship test:

BBC | US unveils new citizenship test


Mr Gonzalez says those who want to become US citizens should not be allowed to do so by simply rattling off historical facts they have memorised but should show a passion for the country of which they are becoming an integral part. The new questions will require those taking the exam to demonstrate a deeper understanding of the American political system and its history.


They are going to test this new quiz on immigrant volunteers. What I would really like is for them to test it on some “real” citizens.

Here are some of the new questions:

Why does the United States have three branches of government?
Name two rights that are only for US citizens
Name two cabinet-level positions
Name one important idea found in the Declaration of Independence
What does the Constitution do?

I know! I know!!

1. So that the loot can be shared equally among the rich and powerful
2. Bigotry and Ignorance
3. Token black person, Secretary of Torture
4. Separate and Equal
5. Gather dust?

    That’s great. I think that many Americans would fail this new test and even the old test too.
