Is the author insinuating it is OK that 'Podunk A&M' would fail such a test? Podunk? That's low.

I will say that at the junior college level I took three American History courses, two of which were taught by professors who pointed out the problems with government. Rockefellar, Bad. Standard Oil, bad. Ford, the bad. etc.
Sadly, all I can remember is how the professor inculcated in us the perks and privlidges of those in office and how they themselves were criminals moreso than the NFL or NBA. That many Senators had Drunk driving records, etc.

My civics class was the only class that was taught more "conservatively."
here are some answers to her article:

-Jefferson's Establishment Clause
-Brown V. Board of Education
-Support to ratify the Constitution
-System is which power is shared by both National and local governments
-Doctrine that declared for Europe not to interfere with American affairs
- A tax system in which the tax rate increase as Income increases, hence the more you make the more they take.

I have no problems with execs getting stock options as long as the stockholders are the ones determining the amount awarded and on what conditions they are disbursed.

I'm just getting familiar with all this "business world." I don't know if it is because I'm from a small town in Mexico where there were not too many businesses or just because I'm just disconnected from this world. My husband said that I live in my own world, and that I think there are no bad people here.
I guess I’m just opening my eyes to the real world. What I see in the company where I work, is that the people have so much control of the company that is almost impossible to touch them. By saying touch them I’m referring to fire them. I’m not saying everybody, but many of them make such a use of their benefits that they can go to work one month and take three months off. And we as supervisors cannon do anything – we just have to welcome them back and assume they have been helping us when we need. The company does not need that kind of people, we need a person who wants and needs to work every day – they have to understand that it is for their and the company’s benefit. If the company goes down, we will not have jobs.

I don't think such writers have much interest in the regional state colleges. I would say you are more likely to get a more balanced perspective at a CC or regional state school than the typical liberal well financed campus.

Michigan is reaping the benefits of exactly what Maria is describing. For decades unions managed to insulate their workers from any punative action by the employer car companies. The results were too often absenteeism, drinking on the job, and shoddy work on the cars. GM has now shrunk from 400,000 jobs to 70,000 jobs, and some of those 70,000 are now on strike. Michigan with all of its shuttered auto plants and out of business parts suppliers has had a net exodus of jobs. The state has hired Michigan native and actor Jeff Daniels to plead its case on television. The difficulty of dealing with such workers as Maria describes is what has driven business to take its chances in the dicey legal environment of places like India and China. That influx of money has finally given rise to capitalism in those countries. Look at who is in the math and stat and engineering classes here and you will find, guess what, Asian and Chinese students taking their skills back to their homes. How much longer can we kid ourselves that we can exist as a service economy while India and China capture manufacturing which is what really creates wealth.

All the fault is not with the unions in the case of the car companies. As Winding Road Editor David E. Davis has said, GM has let go of hundreds of thousands of workers but there is not a shred of evidence that they have kept the right ones. As I write the lots are still full of heavy gas guzzler pickups, whoops.
