Last week, MRCTV's Dan Joseph went to American University to give the student body a little general knowledge quiz.
When asked if they could name a SINGLE U.S. senator, the students blanked. Also, very few knew that each state has two senators. The guesses were all over the map, with some crediting each state with twelve, thirteen, and five senators.
So, when it comes to politics, the students at American University are a little rusty - but, they passed with flying colors when it comes to pop culture.
It’s an arguable point the Juan is a Senator....
When do we go back to the legislatures choosing the senators?
But by God they all voted for obamadork...
Didn’t Senator Sarah Palin just send a twitter message about that Malaysian plane flying too close to Heaven? < /Sarc >
“I don’t remember his name but there was a D after it...”
Your future electorate...
College students of the 1960s knew they were espousing Communism under the banners of China, Cuba, North Korea, and the USSR.
Today they are ignorant pawns.
PS The college students of 1968 ru(i)n Amerika today.
“...When do we go back to the legislatures choosing the senators?...”
When we repeal the 17th amendment.
They wear the t-shirt that reads, “I’m glad I are a college student.”
I bet they know all about homo rights, global warning, and how Kim Kardashian is on the cover of Vogue magazine, ya know, the important issues/sarc
Of course they did, but by the looks of those morons, they had to be physically taken to the polling booth, I doubt they would have been able to locate it on their own or even know what a voting booth is
Right after we repeal the income tax.
Today, the FBI, IRS, NSA, et al are looking into the “threats” and “ties” of the Tea Party.
Boston jihadists, Ft. Hood jihadists, et al, not so much.
Doesn’t it make you just so proud to be an American these days?
When I went to Spain in the 90s I still all but flaunted it. Today though....
Nothing is better than a good command of the English language.
A college degree is better than nothing.
Therefore, a college degee is better than a good command of the English language.
Not this college student. I went to MSU and we did not support those losers in any way. We thought they were nuts. The closest we ever came was having Peter, Paul and Mary in concert. This was before they became so political. Some of us got to meet them afterwards. I really, really think they were starving from the way they ate. I kind of felt sorry for them.
My God, I went to AU in the late 60’s majoring in Pol Sci and serving as a Senate intern. It’s not conceivable that this would happen there then.
Our public schools are doing a fine job of creating graduates that are ignorant of the basic knowledge of our nation. This makes it much easier to convince them that the 2nd amendment specifically requires gun registrations and other left wing lies.
If there were aptitude tests for voting, Democrats would never win anything.
I graduated from college in 1969 and joined the Marine Corps. There are many of my brother Marines' names on the Wall and we did not "ruin" America.
A fine example of propositional logic: “Modes Rolaids”.
Just the way the communist/unionized public skool system wants it. Useful idiots all around....
Tree munths ago i cudint spel studint,
Now I are one at Merkin unibercity
I didn’t mean to cast all students into the same boat.
But academia, the news establishment, and many unelected offices of government today are infested with the 68 Revolution red diaper doper babies.
They knew the agenda they were seeking and they’ve gotten much of it and through the media and educational indoctrination are planting the seeds for the future.
The red diaper doper babies could name names in elected office. Today’s uninformed voting base (while college educated), not so much.
A university FIVE MILES FROM THE CAPITOL and they can’t name a single Senator?
Looking on the bright side, at leat they won’t be disappointed in someone (senator) they can’t name. Not many on this site can say they haven’t been disappointed in their senators (many times for me but then I’m from PA).
I’m thinking if someone asked me to name my state’s senators tomorrow I’d just say I have no clue, but I’m pretty sure one or both are liars.
I heard some of his questioning —
Can you name any serving US senators?
I would argue that most are not SERVING.
It’s always the ignorant who believe they are always right
They also learn about white privilege and the. 57 genders and crap
Democrats would write the test
Lindsey Graham is a single U.S. Senator.
Young naive clueless fools getting ripped off. Probably working towards a useless arts or communications degree, fifty thousand in student load debt and mounting, and upon graduation the only job offer will be a minimum wage part-time gig at Mickey D’s. and only if there aren’t any illegals applying for the job.
And they can’t name a senator? They would if they knew what a senator was. But don’t worry they’ll learn all about that stuff when they attend law school.
Oh well, who knows they might be president some day :)
Makes you proud to be an American...
Moron this story at 11.
They’re not supposed to, as are most anyone else not part of the Exempt Ones’ Club.
That’s what “education” is for now.
Serving the working taxpayers a big heaping help of craptastic tyranny every day.
As soon as the people have enough common sense to repeal the 17th amendment, i.e., never.
