as American as MoBob

MoBob had his citizenship interview today, and he passed! Woo-hoo! After miles of paperwork, several hundred dollars in fees, and drilling questions like "what is the rule of law?"

His five questions were:
who is the commander in chief?
what three states were from the original colonies?
which states border Mexico?
who signs bills into law?
who wrote the declaration of independence?

And his written statement was "The people elect Congress."

He still has to submit our 2010 taxes and proof that we've been at the same residence for the past few years; otherwise, he's waiting for his swearing-in ceremony date. And we should have a party!

I don't even understand what the second question means, so I guess US citizenship is out for me. I did pretty well on the others, though.

I got four of the five Mexico states, and I knew the other questions.

One day...

I'm embarrassed to see that I don't think I could pass a US citizenship test.

Though I think sooner or later, Texas will secede from the Union again so I'll probably be okay. ;)

The PoTUS - Obama

I'm assuming there was a map? Though I don't know that I could name the original 13. A guess, sure.
Mass, Va, NJ, NY,NH,PA,NC,GA,CT RI, MD, PA and.... South Carolina? You got me.

Texas! CA, NM, AZ

The president?

Thomas Jefferson?

Hrm. Feeling like a pretty crappy American. Congrats to MoBob, though!

Re: Q
Yep. I guess naming 13 would be too much to expect!
