As I said this was for personal growth.  Since there is no way to verify the results (for example, what you posted could be from the tenth time you took it after writing down your errors nine times) I only expected people to post their results when they thought it would fool someone.

Well  I only missed two questions and both had to do with illegals in the US. I said that Illegals have some rights in this country and apparently they said it was wrong' but any illegal can go to an ER and they get treated that is a right isn't it?  The other qu\estion is that Illegals are not the most important problem in the US and I answered that they were.

The whole issue is that I am pretty good at not being fooled by opinions but i detest  alternative facts and that is what many subscribe these days.

FACTS VS OPINIONS

254 Views
Message 34 of 34

Sorry, I've been remiss.  I mentioned there was a new PEW study out that showed that only 26% of adults in this country can distinguish facts from opinions and that I would start a new thread on the subject.  This is it.  But before I go any further, perhaps you might be interested in how you fare on the subject.  The reference below is to a little test PEW published that will answer that question.  This is strictly for your own use and I hope you learn something from it.  No need to tell us your score.  I can guess the outcome based on posts I've seen and, besides, there's no way to verify it.
