    Dude. You clearly don't understand the concept of team sports. Ties are for losers!

    I don't know. Seems like everything was perfect in the country with no problems whatsoever. Then that happened it's all gone to hell. Coincidence?

    "In God We Trust" is in that? Sorry, didn't realize that.

    I'm with you, Tim. I was just responding to Phil's assertion that stupid people elected Obama.

    I've always questioned these tests nobody has ever taken. No one in the 10 years I've researched has ever come across this test. I've asked congressmen and educators and none have ever been able to explain who has taken these tests. Hmm.

    Well, what sort of people supported the failed community organizer from Chi-town? Who supported a guy that added approximately $1.3 trillion per year to the US debt, taking it to $17 trillion ...... a guy that denigrated Bush (calling it unpatriotic) for increasing the debt $4 trillion over 8 years? Who supported a failed community organizer that uses the term "patriotic" .... when he doesn't know what it really means?

    I see quite a few of them wandering around downtown Gainesville and hanging out at the Probation & Parole office at 215 SE 2nd Ave, Gainesville, FL .... and based upon their behavior in public I'm not impressed or convinced they would score very well on many tests ..... especially one to determine intellectual capability.

    So you are insinuating that there are 62 million poor idiots on probation that got him elected?

    The bottom line is that any attempt at this "all liberals" or "all conservatives" statements are going to be prejudice. If they are fortunate enough to be a stereotype instead, there is probably a complementary stereotype that applies to the other side.

    It says Spain and Italy were low
    on the test. I blame our result on too much pizza and taco's.

    Hardly ..... try reading the statement, again. Geez ... now I'm beginning to better understand how America elected Ofailure and the other incompetents in DC .... and why we are staring at a $17 trillion debt! There are simply too many people with the right to vote who simply do not get anything beyond ..... how much larger is my next check from the federal government and will congress increase my EITC for 2013?:yes:

    Actually, most of these are more right-wing than us. Good God, some of the ones you listed have flat-taxes.

    Precisely ... they voted for the community organizer as he "bought their vote with taxpayer funded handouts" .... well, at least to those that were alive as I don't know what he's doing for the dead people that voted for him.

    Barry's supporters were/are not concerned at all with the well being of the nation as a whole. This current situation clearly underscores that.

    all the Obama supporters I know have jobs, own their homes, raise their kids. I don't know anyone getting a handout.

    Question on using a mouse is a dumb question
    as laptops dont have one.
    Figuring miles and how much pay you get if you recieve .44 cents a mile is
    business math while all have to take the useful
    in daily life algebra instead, here

    or is the question in kilometers...

    Either way the questions look easy so I question the questions.
