9 out of 12 too. For the ones I got wrong I almost chose the correct answer so I should have stuck with my gut instinct. It was fun.

10 of 12. Screwed up the TARP question and honestly thought we spend the most money on national debt interest.

9 of 12 correct…
Not sure why I thought India and Pakistan were “generally” friendly. Neither are at war.
Who really cares about the prime minister of Britain?
I thought social programs – SS, Medicare, Medicaid, etc were the largest killers of the budget. National defense? Go figure.

I got eleven right, but I do not feel very smart when it comes to figuring out what these clowns in Washington are doing.

Maybe I should run for Congress!

Thomas, India and Pakistan have a “cold war” going on. several years ago, there was a real threat of a nuclear exchange; the threat still exists, but has been tamped down a bit.
Get ahold of “War at the Top Of The World” by Eric Margolis if you are interested in the topic.
