Testing Your Mettle (Redux)

Testing Your Mettle (Redux)

All right, kiddies, it’s that time again. Every now and then, Bob Livingston allows me to prod your cerebra with the proverbial sharp object. Actually, every now and then, I turn in one of my clever little civics quizzes so close to deadline that Livingston doesn’t have time to fill my space with old Herbert “Herblock” Block cartoons.

Granted, the average reader of Personal Liberty Digest™ is a veritable Rhodes Scholar compared to the low-forehead types who populate some of our dear liberal web counterparts, but I believe in encouraging you to exercise the old gray matter from time to time. “Use it or lose it,” sayeth the old sage. Plus, if you let your brains atrophy, you will start behaving foolishly. From there, it’s only a matter of time before you decay into liberalism and begin living green, speaking with your eyes closed and subscribing to Mother Jones. Being a cavalier sort, I’m here to help. So put away your laptops and iPhones and shut off the television; here comes the latest edition of the Personal Liberty Digest Citizen’s Quiz.

In constructing this examination, I tried to be fair, but firm. Don’t fret if you fare poorly. Remember: There are no stupid answers, only stupid people — and they are at, waiting for Dennis Kucinich to tell them where the aliens are going to land.

Question 1:

Dominique Strauss-Kahn is:

  1. The maître d’ at Oprah Winfrey’s favorite restaurant.
  2. A minor character from the film “The Boys from Brazil.”
  3. The disgraced ex-head of the International Monetary Fund.
  4. Trying to figure out if that crossbeam in his cell can hold his weight.

Question 2:

The IMF:

  1. Secretly controls the universe from its headquarters.
  2. Is the real-life basis for the DC Comics’™ Legion of Doom.
  3. An enormously influential — albeit shadowy — intergovernmental economic group.
  4. A national chain of greasy-spoon pancake joints.

Question 3:

President Barack Obama recently sold out Israel in order to:

  1. Demonstrate his commitment to continuing the peace process.
  2. Drive down real estate prices close to the beaches in Haifa.
  3. A result of his comprehensive ignorance of Middle Eastern politics.
  4. Get a discount at the DuPont Circle falafel cart.

Question 4:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s intransigence in dealing with Obama is:

  1. Uncalled for. Obama is the WORLD’S President! Why can’t Netanyahu see that?
  2. Likely to knock him off George Soros’ Yom Kippur card list.
  3. A bold, statesmanlike stand by the strong leader of an embattled country.
  4. Going to give Jimmy Carter a coronary if he keeps it up.

Question 5:

Pakistan appears to be edging closer to China’s sphere of influence because:

  1. Pakistan leaders figure Islamofascism and communism are no less compatible than Islamofascism and freedom.
  2. The ChiComs ask fewer questions about trafficking in human slavery.
  3. Pakistan is as loyal to its allies as teenage girls are to fashion trends.
  4. Pakistan is taking lessons in “how to roll over dissidents with tanks and still host the Olympics.”

Question 6:

Harold Camping’s prediction of the End of Days didn’t turn out because:

  1. He skipped a couple of important pages in Apocalyptic Cults for Dummies.
  2. God was out enjoying the beautiful spring weather.
  3. Please tell me you didn’t need help with this one.
  4. The world actually DID end Saturday afternoon; it’s just that purgatory isn’t as bad as we had been led to believe.

Question 7:

Herman Cain’s decision to run for President:

  1. Is really a cynical effort to boost his radio talk-show ratings.
  2. Is really a cynical effort to widen the market for lousy pizza.
  3. Will make a somewhat-moribund race for the GOP nomination much more interesting.
  4. Will give liberals another target for their racism besides Clarence Thomas.

Question 8:

Tim Pawlenty’s decision to run for President:

  1. Was greeted with all the fanfare of double-coupon day at the Stop & Shop.
  2. Gives Mitt Romney a challenger in the “Most Stereotypical White-boy Republican” competition.
  3. Gives moderate agricultural-state denizens someone to consider besides Obama.
  4. Will redeem Minnesota’s Presidential politics image after that whole Mondale ’84 disaster.

Question 9:

Jon Huntsman is:

  1. The tennis pro at the Salt Lake City Country Club.
  2. The real-life model for the “Politician Ken” doll; coming soon from Mattel™!
  3. Still a better choice in 2012 than Obama, for whatever that’s worth.
  4. Keeping that “Just for Men™” endorsement deal in his back pocket as an insurance policy.

Question 10:

Obama’s reelection message is “We need more time” because:

  1. He spent too much of his first term kicking it with the New Black Panther Party.
  2. It looks better on a bumper sticker than: “Mr. Soros says he has enough cash left over from the Media Matters for America ‘Hatefest 2011.’”
  3. Four years isn’t enough to utterly foul up both foreign AND domestic policy.
  4. Michelle Obama wants taxpayers to foot the bill for a few more 5-star vacations.

Question 11:

Donald Trump abandoned his Presidential aspirations because he:

  1. Couldn’t face four years of competing with his hair for attention.
  2. Couldn’t face four years of competing with other world leaders for attention.
  3. Couldn’t face four years of guys like me making lame comb-over jokes.
  4. Couldn’t convince NeNe Leakes to join his cabinet as Secretary of Temper Tantrums.

Question 12:

Cynthia McKinney recently appeared on Libyan state TV in order to:

  1. Boost her chances to win the Miss Islamofascism pageant.
  2. Debut her new single: “Let your hate flow.”
  3. Remind people that she’s so much more than just the “crazy broad that even Hank Johnson’s congressional district thought was too embarrassing.”
  4. Give Green Party members something to do besides reread their dog-eared copies of Unsafe at Any Speed.

Question 13:

The floods wreaking havoc in the Midwest are caused by:

  1. Global warming (aka global cooling, aka global climate change, aka An Inconvenient Slide Show).
  2. Al Gore and the staff at Current TV.
  3. The same meteorological and geological cycles which have existed for billions of years.
  4. An evil conspiracy of Piltdown Man enthusiasts, space aliens and the International Society of Phrenologists.

Question 14:

Obama’s trip to Ireland was:

  1. A journey of self-discovery for a man in search of his roots.
  2. A result of the fact that “First Black President” doesn’t mean you can cut in the beer line on St. Patrick’s Day.
  3. A nicely staged photo-op designed to convince American voters that a small Irish village should play a big role in selecting the leader of the free world.
  4. An expensive (for the taxpayers) way to make Obama look like he drinks beer instead of white wine spritzers.

Question 15:

America’s still-declining image in the Arab World is the fault of:

  1. George Bush.
  2. Dick Cheney.
  3. Obama’s ham-fisted, spineless foreign policy and the lack of respect it engenders.
  4. America’s stubborn insistence on allowing women to drive, vote and leave the yurt without being stoned to death in an honor killing.

Time’s up, students.  Pass your papers forward so that I may collect them, grade them and then use them for heating fuel this winter when utility rates are higher than Michelle Obama’s wardrobe budget. If you fared poorly, fret not. The good folk of Detroit are still trying to remember how to spell their names at the top of their tests.

I’ll ring the bell now, as I know you have important matters which require attention. There’s the thanks-to-Obama’s-economic-‘recovery,’-we’re-vacationing-in-the-back-yard trip to plan, the kidney you need to list on eBay so you can afford baked beans next month and the new Lady Gaga video coming up on MTV. I hear she’s going to wear a dress made up of strategically placed Filipino children.

Never let it be said that Professor Crystal isn’t hip enough to know what the kids are into these days. But don’t forget: Your final exam is set for November 2012. Study hard.

    Question 7, Answer:
    E) Will certify that Republicans aren’t really serious about shrinking Big Government, and restoring our Freedom:

    Vote Ron Paul.

    • nax777

      Yea he’s the real deal. Nothing fake just ignored.

      The US reached a zero population growth in the mid 80’s our leaders increased their yearly appetite for immigration. The legal yearly immigration rate went from 100,000 to 1,000,000. From the years 2000 to 2010 our leader’s yearly appetite for legal immigration grew to 3,000,000. At present levels the US population will swell another 130 million to 442 million by 2040! This is a very conservative estimate. US immigration rate is the sole reason for overpopulation in the US today and tomorrow!

      It is irrational to think that any single payer social program will work best. It is irrational to think that nations can tax its way out of poverty. It is irrational to believe that a power convinced that you have nowhere else to go will do your biding.

      A true Conservative and a true Liberal agree on one thing though for different reasons. Any single payer social program is a nutty idea! Now each believes that it’s not so nutty as long as their side is managing it.

        Number 15 is a no brainer. Bush/Cheney of coarse. When you send armies into someone elses land and kill thousands you generally are not welcomed or looked at as conquering heros. The Muslims lost credibility in 9/11 and we lost credibility in our equally maniac response.

            I really dont remember writing anything offensive, so Im at a lost as to why my post was removed. I see full vulgar things people write and they seem to get posted all the time, and I get my post’s remove for offensive things, when I havent written any offensive words down. Maybe the truth is considered offensive, I dont know, but I dont understand how people can cuss and swear and write what we call dirty words on their posts, and those get printed. Hmmm. Makes me wonder.

    • Vic

      Apparently you include yourself into “anyone with any rational mindset”, but after your remark about 1967 borders it’s hard to imagine how did you come up with a rationale for such inclusion.

    • Cawmun Cents

      Just when have the Palestinians ever mutually agreed to anything?

    • Andrea B

      Because when they attacked Israel in the 40′s, Israel WON that land in the war. Why should they have to give it back, when they were DEFENDING themselves against an attack?

      And how is it fair that the leader of one country can determine the borders of another country, when he refuses to defend the borders of his OWN country????????? Who the hell does he think he is????????

      The ONLY difference between God and Obama is that God doesn’t think He’s Obama!

      • Angie

        That’s a good one, Andrea, and I agree wholeheartedly!!!

    • http://naver sook young

      Sorry but, if you went to war with someone and you won by gaining land from them, would you give it back? I would not give it back. Israel doesn’t have to give up anything for peace. Although, there will never be peace in that region. Thank you.

        If Obama really feels that way, about Israel giving Palestine land back, then maybe we should give Mexico back Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico and Southern Texas. Oh wait, they already have infiltrated these places and banrupted every one of them, and are taking them over.

          Al Gore is a joke that doesnt know squat. Its funny, these liberals gave him a nobel peace prize, and now that it is coming to light that he lied and was wrong about everything, why isnt it revoked and taken back? Funny how history reveals liars for their full worth. True stats show the earth has been cooling, even when Al was on the rampage, and now, more and more studies are coming out not only saying the Earth is cooling, but that they are forecasting a cooling planet. And now it seems, Al is in hiding, what with having been found out to be a snake oil salesman and a liar, trying to get rich by pulling the wool over peoples eyes.

      Herman Cain will be the continuation of Republican policies that helped grow our Government into the Leviathan that it is. If you want to shrink Goverment back to Constitutional levels, there are only two Republican candidates to choose — Ron Paul or Gary Johnson.
      Voting for Herman Cain just because he is black would be racist, and those who do would deserve our Government’s future trampling of our Constitutional rights. I don’t.

          I also, am from Indiana, Mitch jacked the sales tax from 6% to 7% after putting a cap on property taxes. Before that, West Wing (the now defunct show that entertained the Left) commented that “no one knows what time it was in Indiana”. Mitch wanted and got Indiana to go back to Daylight Savings Time. Come on! Like when I was a kid, we can put out kids to bed while the sun is still shining. Nice guy, but the petty crap he instigated, it’s almost like he is trying to get along with the left. I do like that he pushed State Union legislation that chased the Dems to Illinois for awhile (so they could play with the kids from up north).

    Click on the link to hear a private investigator explain that Obama is using a FAKE social security number from Connecticut.


    May 13, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    This is an article written by an ex IRS

    investigator..very interesting.

    Trump is correct, Barry Soetoro, AKA Obama is hiding something in his past that is very bad, and it may not be his citizenship. (Trump would not say this if he did not know something and he has the money to get the dirt.) As an IRS tax examiner, one of many former federal jobs, I have seen what it appears Barry Soetoro has done, mostly by illegal aliens, attempting to acquire a new identity in the U.S and/or criminals looking to acquire a new ID.

    Barry, AKA Obama, was lawfully adopted by a foreign national, Lolo Soetoro, and Barry’s name was legally changed to “Barry Soetoro”. (Barry’s own admission) Barry Soetoro was also made an official legal Indonesian citizen. (again Barry’s own admission) The adoption would be noted in Barry’s vital statistics record in Hawaii on his original birth certificate.

    OR Lolo Soetoro may have always been Barry’s legal birth father. The public does not know for sure at this point who Barry’s father really was and Barry himself may not know. Barry was raised as a Muslim in Indonesia and attended a Catholic funded school that permitted all faiths to attend. Barry’s mother dropped him as a dependent for some reason, maybe even when Barry was adopted by Lolo Soetoro. His mother’s passport records dropped Barry as a dependent indicating Barry was no longer a legal dependent of his mothers. (The passport records of his mother have been produced showing Barry was no longer a dependent when Barry was permanently residing in Indonesia .)

    Barry went to Hawaii to live with his alleged grand parents after Lolo Soetoro and Barry’s mother divorced. A “certificate of live birth” can have names changed on it including a child’s birth name, and birth parent’s names. Even a modified date of birth can be on a “certificate of live birth”. This occurs frequently for adopted children where the birth parent does not want the child to know who they are.

    The public has no idea who Barry’s real birth father is or who Barry’s real birth mother is. (Barry could have been adopted by his mother) The original birth certificate is the only legal vital statistics record of a person’s birth parents, birth location, birth date, etc. I can get a “certificate of live birth” for a dead person; I cannot get a birth certificate of a dead person without “Deceased” on it. (I’ve tried)

    There is no evidence Barry Soetoro ever lawfully changed his name to “Barrack Hussein Obama”. There is no proof Barry Soetoro was born with the name “Barrack Hussein Obama”. I’m willing to bet the name”Barrack Hussein Obama” is not present on the real birth certificate as Barry’s birth name or as Barry’s birth father. I have pictures of me with my mother and Jimmy Buffet. that doesn’t make him my father even if I start using the name Jimmy Buffet.

    The public knows Barry Soetoro finished high school in Hawaii as Barry Soetoro and attended Occidental as Barry Soetoro where he did drugs and flunked out of school. After dropping out of Occidental, Barry showed up in New York , homeless and on drugs. (Barry’s own admission) Barry then hooked up with a Pakistani to live with and traveled back to Indonesia on his new boyfriend’s dime to renew his Indonesian passport and traveled to Pakistan with him.

    Ask any law enforcement officer in a large city or detective and they will tell you homeless young men on drugs in large cities usually end up as male prostitutes. Barry ended up as a world traveler with a degree. (Not likely) Barry Soetoro returned to New York from Pakistan and began using the fictitious name “Obama” for some reason. (again Barry Soetoro’s own admission) One could only suspect that a person addicted to drugs returning from Pakistan to New York , the main route for Afghan heroin into the U.S., maybe Barry had a reason to start using a new name.

    There are literally over 1 million open warrants on file in New York . maybe Barry is one of them?..

    After spending some time in New York allegedly working under the name “Obama”, It appears Barry used the fictitious name “Barrack Hussein Obama” for the first time to file his federal taxes in Connecticut at a Post Office Box for the purpose of evading paying taxes in New York and /or to establish a new identity. (This is a felony with no statute of limitation.)

    When the IRS received Barry Soetoro’s federal tax filing, the IRS could not attach the name Barrack Hussein Obama to the SSI number provided or the address provided. So the IRS assigned the fictitious name “Barrack Hussein Obama” a tax ID number for a person from Connecticut (Where Barry unlawfully filed a federal tax form using a false name). Barry Soetoro began using the tax ID number as his SSI number when using the fictitious name Barrack Obama. This is why Barry Soetoro has a Connecticut SSI number.

    When I worked for the IRS, I saw this occur more than once and yes, it is a felony to knowingly file a fraudulent federal tax forms. Most of the politicians that cheat on their taxes claim it was an accident. That is how they get away with their tax cheat crimes. Using a fake name is no accident.

    It appears Barry fled New York to Chicago using his new identity to get a job . He likely ordered a fake diploma to bolster his new identity as “Obama”. Fake Diploma’s were very big in the 80′s and diploma mills were even being used by federal workers to get promotions. There is evidence his alleged attendance at Columbia was faked (Barry never attended Columbia ) and Barry lied his way into Harvard (he had no transcripts to get in). Including telling the Saudi royal family he was fighting in Afghanistan with the Muslim Jihad against the Russians, so they would help him get into a law school.

    The Saudi’s apparently loved Barry’s story of Jihad in Pakistan/Afghanistan and paid for Barry to attend Harvard under the name “Obama”. The Saudi family has admitted to paying for Obama to attend Harvard and gave Harvard a gift of $20 million dollars. Harvard in turn made their special attendee President of the law review a person that never wrote a single law review.. I guess that is what $20 million buys at Harvard.

    It is unlikely Barry was a Jihadist and was most likely a drug mule if anything, maybe even a CIA street hire to haul Afghan heroin back to New York, so the Afghans could buy U.S. made stinger missiles with U.S.dollars to shoot down Russian helicopters? I hired people over seas to do work below my pay grade all the time, even foreign nationals. I think this is the story Barry told the Saudi’s, but he was most likely really just a drug mule/dealer and probably still wanted on an outstanding warrant in New York.

    Barry’s selective service registration is not normal either. Click on the link for info on Barry’s Selective Service number.


    After I looked at Barry’s selective service filing I noticed it was most likely fraudulent too based on the name he used. Barry did not start using the name “Obama” until he returned from Pakistan (long after he flunked out of school in California ) His selective service record (maintained in Chicago coincidentally) shows he registered at a Hawaiian post office as “Obama” in Sept 1980.

    Problem, Barry was getting high in California at Occidental in Sept 1980 (Barry’s own admission) and was not using the fictitious name “Obama” at that time. Barry began using the fictitious name “Obama” only after he returned from Pakistan. The selective service filing is fraudulent. NEW NOTE – On the the Selective Service Registration, Barry did not have the Connecticut Tax ID number he used on the Registration until after he began using the name “Obama” in New York . More evidence his Selective Service filing is fraudulent.

    Barry returned to Chicago and attended a semi-christian radical black church with his first female love Michelle. Barry admits keeping in touch with Phil Boener, who traveled to New York from Occidental to be with Barry and was most likely Barry’s first love. Barry still could not get a real job, because he was still a fraud, even with his Harvard degree in hand he could lie and take the Bar exam, but he could not work as a lawyer for a major law firm without a back ground investigation and he would never pass one.

    So, Michelle got Barry a job at her law firm. Barry never filed a case alone and never filed a motion. He wrote lots of memos according to the law firm where Barry worked. (I think they knew Barry was a fraud and didn’t want to be sued by previous clients) Barry rescinded his law licenses, so as not to be disbarred for fraud. The Bar knows Barry lied on his application. Michelle also had to turn over her law license for her involvement in corruption with the Chicago mayors office.

    With time on his hands Barry, a well spoken black man, was able to get elected to a state office, oddly because he looked for fraud in his opponents voter registrations and got his opponent disqualified from running. Barry a well versed liar was a natural in state politics. He used his political influence to get himself a position as a lecturer at Chicago’s law school. Barry embellished this position as a “professor of law” which everyone knows is completely false. Barry was not a professor or even a specialist at anything but lying.

    On a whim Barry ran for United States Senate for the State of Illinois . Politicians do this all the time to make a name for themselves even if they can’t win. At the time the Republican Ryan was a shoe in for the Senate seat, so no real Democrat contenders entered the race, but Barry did.

    On a fluke after the primary Ryan’s wife Jeri Ryan (Seven of nine from Star Trek) went public that her husband was making her have sex with other people while he watched. Ryan dropped out and Alan Keys moved from Maryland to run against Barry Soetoro. The election got all kinds of press because there were no blacks in the U.S. Senate and one of these black men was going to be a Senator. Alan Keys did his best to warn everyone Barry was not who he claimed to be, but the public saw him as a carpet bagger.

    Barry kept the lie going and presented himself as a clean black man that talked like a white man. Illinois elected Barry to the U.S. Senate. The Democrats had already began scrubbing Barry’s back ground when Ryan dropped out. Phil, Barry’s boy friend from Occidental, was found working in California as a communications specialist (receptionist) for a dental hygienist school and given a diploma from Columbia and cover story.

    The rest of Barry’s drug friends were all given jobs or money by the Democrat machine to keep quiet Because Barry was such a news maker as the only Black in the Senate, and he could speak like a white man he was made key speaker for the Democrat convention.

    Barry then decided to run for President to keep the lie going. No one thought to question Barry’s back ground in the Democratic party. They helped cover up the ugly back ground. The only person jumping up and down warning Barry was not who he claimed to be was Alan Keys and he was discarded as just an angry loser.

    Now we have a complete fraud sitting in the Office of the President. Clearly the most corrupt, inexperienced, and ignorant President in the history of the United States who’s only quality is that he can lie with a straight face.

    Barry Soetoro is more of a fraud than Bernie Madoff and we can only hope his house of cards will one day fall down. This is what the main stream media is feeding to the American people as a fine up standing leader who deserves a second term as our President. This needs to be passed around all over the Internet.

      One addition just for your info:

      When it came time for the Dems to vet Oblama before running him at the Democratic National Convention, Nancy Pelousy signed the papers. The first one stated that he was a “natural born citizen”. The next day she signed another set of papers that did NOT include that statement. Otherwise it was an exact duplicate.

      So it is evident that the Dems realized that he was not a citizen so they left it off the vetting papers.

        Pelousy Galore strikes again.

        • jibbs

          Did, you buy the Berkey!

          • Carlucci

            jibbs – I haven’t bought the Berkey yet. I asked a question a few days ago when we were talking about it, but didn’t see an answer. What I’d really like to know is how does the water taste once it is filtered through the Berkey? I’m hooked on Ozarka bottled spring water. If the Berkey makes water taste as good as or better than that, it sure would save me some bucks in the long run. Anyway, how does the Berkey water taste?

          • jibbs

            The taste is great, as a matter of fact, we quit buying bottled water.
            Hmm, Ozarka water, sounds like you live near the Ozarks.

          • Carlucci

            jibbs – I just bought the Big Berkey, which they offered to upgrade to a Royal Berkey for the same price. Can’t wait to get it.

            No, I don’t live in the Ozarks now, although I did live there as a child (Bentonville, Arkansas). Now I’m back in Big T, where I was born.

            Thanks so much to you and Kate8 for the great info and testimonials on the Berkey.

        • jibbs

          I’m sure you will more than happy with it. Crystal clear clean water!!

    • jibbs

      Thanks for the condeming information on the illeagal, I passed it around and sent it to my e-mail list, the Speacker, the reps. and congress in my state.

    • Marty S.

      So if everything about this guy is a farce then he has to keep it going by lying and covering it up. He cannot possibly have any ability to truly lead this country as he doesn’t qualify to flip burgers without the proper I.D.s etc. We basically are without a president -no wonder Hillary and Biden pulled the trigger on the OBL op. It was not going to happen with “whatever-his-name-is” running it. America was asleep at the switch during the 08 campaign/elections and allowed the biggest scam to go undetected. Why no charges or investigation by congress? The first time I listened to this prankster speak I grew very sick to my stomach; something just wasn’t right about him. Anybody else experience that back in 2008?

      • Angie

        Absolutely, Marty, I had a sinking feeling deep in the pit of my stomach that some know-nothings would vote him in and that’s exactly what they did!!! It seems like one of those nightmares that you just can’t wake up from!

      • Old Henry


        Yes I did, in 2007 actually.

        When necessary I am a pretty fair judge of charactor and this guy triggered every bell in my head and made the hair on my neck stand up.

  • Vic

    Gee, Ben, why there’s no ‘All of the above’ option? It would be fun to have it as an answer for almost all of the questions!

  • Philip Scott


  • 45caliber

    Darn! There wasn’t any “ALL OF THE ABOVE” answers!

  • Michael

    Most of the correct answers are “C”. The exceptions are 7 and 8 (D), and 11, 12 and 14 (B). Some questions have more than one valid answer, like B and D for 4, and D for 10. D would also be valid for 15 as a sarcastic answer.

  • iam
