So, I just came across this
video after far too many hours stumbling about, and it got me thinking: is the average American that
uninformed? I'm sure most of the folks here would know the answers to all of those questions or close to it, but, if you took people off the street and asked them, how many would get them right? America has a bad reputation at the moment among the international community for just this sort of thing, and I think that although the video obviously doesn't show those who answered correctly, it may be indicative of the general state of the nation. In three generations will we know who Andrew Jackson was? Do we know now? The thought disturbs me.
