…can’t hurt them.
While everyone seems to be discussing civil liberties and bemoaning their slow erosion, apparently only 28% of us can actually name more than 1 of the 5 freedoms granted by the first amendment. And, only 1 in 1000 could name all 5.
Just another example of people bitching about things that they know nothing about.
There is good news though - 22% of us can name all 5 family members from “The Simpsons”. Oh, yeah, and I saved a lot of money on car insurance by switching to Geico.
Can you name them? The freedoms – not the Simpsons.
To remember them, just think of “RASPR the Friendly Freedom Ghost”. I know, corny, but it works.
Honestly though, I have some SERIOUS concerns about the quality of this poll. The biggest tip off that the McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum’s research is somewhat shoddy is that they really think that there are only FIVE Simpsons. Shoddy research indeed. I tell you, I think there are grounds for alleging ageism.
For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s the FULL list of living Simpsons – in age order, I might add.
- Abraham Simpson, AKA “Grampa” Simpson
Anyway, you can read more of this SERIOUSLY flawed survey here.
Hat tip to Morning Glory for the info on the survey.
