    “The time has come,” the Walrus said,
    “To talk of many things:
    Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
    Of cabbages—and kings—
    And why the sea is boiling hot—
    And whether pigs have wings.”
    ― Lewis Carroll

      Interesting...the "correct" answers all run counter to the actual information being put out. Amazing that anyone believes that the increasing budget, for example, will not increase the national deficit. Apparently, these questions were provided by the White House, because they certainly didn't come from any reliable news outlet.

      Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes? Who is watching the watchers?

        Someone must have gotten a typical FN watcher score.

          82%. But, I answered the questions the way they were asked. I also thought that many of the answers while technically correct are also wrong in their conclusions.

          For instance, I think the first two as answered correctly are technically correct at an academic level. As for actual results, nope, most economists are wrong.

            You mean a perfect score?

            Or is your Foxophobia getting the best of you again?

            Never met anybody as bigoted as you are.

              Exactly, and the nation functions at the practical level, not the theoretical/academic level.

              As far as answering them "correctly", this is like one of those "white privilege" college exams...the "right" answer is wrong.
