Q; What are the two main political parties in the US? A: Communist and Republican
In a survey of 1000 Oklahoma HS students, 11% think the two main political parties are Communist and Republican.

The truth shall make you mad..

3. We know where the next crop of teabaggers will be coming from.
What a sad indictment of their educational system. No wonder it's a red state.

4. What I find really sad is that for 80% of the questions "Don't Know" got the most responses. nt

Nope, and there's the proof.

Heads need to roll for this, but I doubt anything will be done.

9. I thought Democrats were facists these days?
Could people please start including the rest of the world in the memos about what defines socialism, communism & fascism. It's really hard keeping up.

11. Of course, but not a single one got more than 7 out of ten correct..
I doubt they were *all* smart asses..

And, for what it's worth, in what other culture is calling someone "smart" part of an insult?
