*20-16 Correct = "The Patrick Henry Award" (He said "Give me liberty or give me death!" That's the stuff that great nations spring from.)

*15-13 Correct = "The John Wayne / Ronald Reagan Award" (choose yer American cowboy).

*12-10 Correct = "The Calvin Coolidge Award" ("Well, what DID Calvin Coolidge say?" ~Mayberry barber, Floyd Lawson)

[*Note: When I was in junior high school, my Spanish teacher allowed me to create an oil painting of a bullfight for "extra credit." Although the oil painting didn't add a single word of Spanish to my vocabulary, it DID save me from failing the class. If, therefore, you have failed this test but want to create an oil painting of the signing of the Declaration Of Independence and send it to us for "extra credit," we will take this into consideration.]

  1. >The Second Amendment secures your >right to bare arms

    Since I'm pretty certain the Founding Fathers were not guaranteeing our right to wear short sleeve shirts (although they would have had Arizona been a state at the time) don't you mean the right to BEAR arms?

    Do I sense some dissatisfaction with the Slick Willie administration?

    When I first read your comment on my dashboard - and not fully remembering what I had said in this blog bit - I thought: Oh, my gosh! Don't tell me I wrote "the right to bare arms" when I meant "bear arms".

    But coming here and reading my post to refresh my memory, I am relieved to find that I had not made such a dumb error. It was just me being "clever" and "witty" (or somethin' like that).

    I hate to admit it, but rereading this old blog bit, some of my questions actually made ME laugh to myself. ["Oh, Stephen, you CAN be funny!"]

  3. Enjoyed reading your post on Arlee's blog and this posting. I agree many American's do seem to be dumbed down as to issues going on in this country.

  4. Thanks, GOSSIP_GRL!
    And I especially appreciate you clicking the link that brought you here. I told Arlee Bird that he might want to delete the link because I figured no one would actually use it. You've proven me wrong. Good work!

  5. After your hijack post, I wanted to reread this.

    I think when I left my comment about "bear arms" I was mistakenly thinking you meant "none of the above" and "bare" was a typo.

    Now that I reread it a couple of years later, I get the joke.

    The last two years when I was laughing, I was only faking it...

    It's still funny. But I still sense some dissatisfaction with the Clinton years...


    You sense some dissatisfaction on my part regarding the Clinton years? I can't even begin to imagine why you'd say such a thing.
