    My only HS teacher with a PhD taught AP American History. He was famous for his emphasis on the Puritans and assigned a research paper on them each year that was due right before Thanksgiving. We then got around to less important topics like the Revolutionary War, US Constitution, slavery, Civil War, etc. We had only made it up to the start of WW1 on the day of the AP exam.

    But he was smart to focus on the Puritans - their stench really does permeate nearly all facets of American life, from our excessive work ethic, to our punitive justice system, to our extreme hang ups with sex and drugs, etc.

    I don't think I ever had an American History class at any level (elementary, middle, high school) make it past, like, 1900.

    You made it past the industrial revolution before the test? Cripes. I had to study on my own, which our teacher warned us about. He was fantastic though. Focused on the right parts.

    I was only one of three kids to pass. All that time in front of the History Channel was worth something. Now? Lol!!!!!!

    Yeah, and we had a question on the AP Exam on the Iranian hostage crisis (in 1990 - it was on 11 years before). That was my only 4 to go with my five 5s.

    Both my HS Modern European History and American History classes ended with the Senate rejecting Wilson's 14 Points. It was also a running joke in our school for years, and I was amazed when I got to college that many other kids had the same joke. "And then the 20th Century happened kthxbai."

    IIRC, we just barely made it to WW2. But most of the class (10th graders) got 3s or 4s. A few 5s from the overachievers.

    IIRC, I had 5s on calc AB and BC, chemistry, psych, and stats. I had fours on both C physics, English, Econ (might have been a five), and a three in APUSH.

    Edit: ap was the best and worst thing I ever did. Worst because I was woefully unprepared for how to learn in college. Took me two years to get back to a respectable GPA. Best because what entry level courses I did take in college, I got to pick whichever lecture times and discussion times I wanted.

    For AP Government, we spent pretty much the whole year on US government and only got to comparative government at the very end. I basically read the textbook cover to cover twice in the weeks before. Must have worked as I got a 5, maybe everyone else in the country was in the same spot.

    Getting out of the freshmen/sophomore chemistry and physics classes in the engineering college, with all of the pre-lab/lab/post-lab work that required (from what I heard from others) made it worth it for me for those classes. Getting a few social science electives covered right off the bat helped there too.

    Yeah that part rocked. The **** part was having quantum mechanics hour 1 day 1 freshman year. I limped through that class with a C+. The first grade I ever received below like a B+.

    That was pretty much my AP History class, although I did not go to a great high school. Also took AP English, which despite it being my 2nd worst subject (I SUCKED at Chem), I aced. Also took AP Biology, and was not doing well until the teacher (privately) called me out and challenged me in the manner of "I don't think this class is right for you." I ended up acing the rest of the class after that moment, because I actually applied myself.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Something like 2/3rds of Republicans favor closing the gun show loophole.

    GOP Members are such cowards, and GOP extremist voters are such lunatics, that they will even turn their backs on their own voters to appeal to the morons. That's because the nearly sane Republican voters don't primary the far right candidates the way the insane Republicans will primary the not quite Nazi enough ones.

    It has nothing to do with appealing to voters. It's all about the Benjamins, baby.
