Are you smarter than a fourth grader?

By Gary Hardaway

Here’s a quiz to test your knowledge of current events. According unscientific but credible studies, most fourth graders can probably pass. Let’s proceed.

 

In the past two years two political movements have arisen to protest what’s going on in the country – the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street (and other cities). The two are very different, opposite, in fact. See if you can identify which words describe which group.

Personal hygiene

Clean/tidy

Filthy/repugnant

Public behavior

Lawful/orderly

Violent/criminal

Political Speech

Clear/reasoned

Incoherent/incomprehensible

Attitude

Courteous/respectful

Hateful/disdainful

Ideology

Conservative

Socialist/Communist/Anarchist

Values

Judeo-Christian

Narcissistic/materialist

Agenda

Constitutionalist

Terrorist

 

You’ll find the answers on the nightly news, although your anchor person may try to obscure, distort, or explain away the obvious. However, “By their fruits you will know them.”

 

Which movement best represents you?
