    71/400 Eh?


    And in typical, brain dead, 'progressive' fashion... Manipulate the language to get the results you want. LOL

    A couple of examples. (Anybody notice you could not "select" the test on the webpage? One had to make the effort to type it out.... LOL 'Progressives' rely on LAZY people.)

    11.) The primary responsibility of corporations is to produce profits and returns for their shareholders, not to improve society.
    As if the two are mutually exclusive? Either you make a profit or you benefit society? LOL

    18.) Immigrants today are a burden on our country because they take our jobs and abuse government benefits.
    What KIND of immigrants?


    This "test" cleary shows that the 'progressive' movement relies on people who are unwilling to take an active role in their government. They just use language to make people feel a certain way.

    I had issues with those questions, and a few other as well.

    Just like push polling, you manipulate the interview to get the results you want.

    The question on terrorism was too limited, as were other questions involving international policy.

  5. Yikes. A few guys getting lathered over some silly "quiz." No wonder they call them "regressive."

    Why, if I didn't know better...I would offer them a buck to get a clue.

    A fine example of a "Progressive" response, when you have no intelligent reply, an insult will do.

    ETA: Notice the "Progressives" didnt post their scores. Being forthright must be a "Regressive" trait.

    I'll do it for you, ES.

    Once again, here's a buck, go buy a clue.

    Until you piped in I didn't see anyone getting "lathered". Now discussion is getting "lathered"? Amazing.

    (after all, I can't let ES use more rolly eyes than me....I am, after all, lathered)

    I couldn't finish the test - thus no score. Couldn't finish it for the reasons given by LH and Puck. Many of the questions were worded in such a way . . . . similar to an automated phone call questionnaire I had the other day from our state Republican party.

    And, of course, there is no one you can ask to clarify for you

    Hey People, it's just a quiz. There is no pass or fail, it's just a quiz.

    p.s. And there are no prizes.

  11. I first heard the label "Progressive" here on PetTalk. It was used, of course, as a pejorative.

    That strikes me funny as if someone is not progressive, are they regressive? Static? Stuck in the mud?

    I am not one for labels and I don't determine my beliefs from quizzes.

    I did not need to take the one sent in the mail recently by the "Morons Who Think Obama Is A Socialist" to know I didn't agree with them.

    I just find it funny - taking a quiz that is blatant marketing - when you know you disagree with it - and then discuss it as if it is something serious.

    It just a clue I got....

    I took it, best I could due to the ambiguity of the questions; as others have said, the wording was very poor (purposely, of course). My score would not be popular.

    LET'S GO O' S!!

  13. As for Michael Steele - I have confidence in the American people - they can count. They know how many years we have been sending troops to the Middle East and who was president when this mess started.

    Far more interesting is the Republican Party's inability to learn from the past. You would think they learned from the Sarah Palin fiasco - chosing leaders based on demographics (a woman! good looking! she hunts!) is not a recipe for success.

    So they wanted a good looking articulate black man as party chairman to counterpoint President Obama. Be careful what you ask for - you just might get it!

    It will be interesting to see how they extricate themselves. I enjoy imagining the backroom conversation!

    Yes, LH, R, b, PS - we all know you do not think President Obama is articulate or good looking.

    Since when have I ever made any statements about Pres. Obama's rhetorical skills?

    President Obama... Articulate? When the teleprompter is on, sure. But, so what? Good looking? I have no opinion. Does it matter?


    President Obama... The absolute worst disaster our economy could have asked for? You betcha. Foreign Policy is important right now for sure. But nothing is more important than the economy. What the President and his merry band of morons are more than happy to keep ruining. But are they really to blame? Who among them has ever even run a lemonade stand. No, WE are to blame. We elect our leaders and the past couple of decades we seem to select the guy who lies the best and promises the most of other people's stuff.

    President Obama is a direct result of our celebrity worship. He sounded good. He looked good... He is a unmitigated disaster. Unless you draw your livelihood from government. (Read: You live on taxpayers money.)

    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0710/39352.html

    "What can the government do to create jobs." NOTHING. Let the people and business keep more of THEIR money.

    All government can do is create MORE government jobs.

    It takes 5 (at least) taxpayers to pay for one new government job. Do the math. Where does it end? What are we to do? 109 TRILLION and counting in unfunded entitlement liability. The baby boomers will probably make out OK. But what about the rest of us? Who's gonna crack first?

    Baby Boomers.... What are you willing to sacrifice so that your posterity has even a sniff of a chance to live at least as good as you did? Social "Security"? Medicare?

    But, I know... I am just a crazy hate monger.

    As I have said before... Don't take my word for it. Read about economics. What happens when a country gets to a point like we are? Our debt (on ONE set of the books....) is about 90% of our GDP.... Do the math.
