Name those C'zars :: Thursday's History Pop Quiz

This is your Chance to Bring your Grades Up -- "da' C'zars, American Style"
by Pat Darnell, the Grade Czar, and, Marinella, Czarina Bubbalina


"The online Washington mag Politico notes that Barry H. Obama himself is not fond of the term “CZAR.” ... It’s only a matter of time before this will prompt commentators to draw parallels between him and Vladimir Lenin."

EXAMPLE
Pratice Question 1) See for yourself, by the way, you can look up  how much any public company pays its top executives. Executive pay cuts are in the news. Some of Wall Street's top executives are included in cuts announced by ____________ .
A) Buttons and Bows C'zar
B) Soupie Sales C'zar

C) Rachel Ray Crepe C'zarettes
D) Pay C'zar Kenneth Feinberg
E) Sid Caesar C'zar of Comedy
########################### OK MooPigsters: Let's begin -- shall we?
1) Obama administration sees a challenge in coordinating all the federal agencies that have a hand in energy policy, including the Department of Transportation, which sets fuel economy standards; the Department of the Interior, which grants permits for oil and gas drilling on federal land; the EPA, which regulates air and water quality; the Department of Commerce, which develops infrastructure to promote economic growth and sustainable development; and of course the Department of Energy... by Energy C'zar ___________ .  [Source]
A) Carol Browner
B) Ed Montgomery
C) Earl Devaney
D) John A. Love


2) There’s little evidence that the Founding Fathers were inspired by Slavic autocracies when they drafted the framework of our republic, but the term has a fairly long tradition in US politics. President Johnson appointed a “poverty czar” in 1964, President Reagan appointed a “drug czar” in 1982, President Clinton appointed an “terrorism czar” in 1998, and President Bush appointed a “war czar” in 2007. And as lawmakers wrangle over how much the government should intervene in the failing auto industry, there’s been talk of appointing a “Car C'zar” to authorize loans and set benchmarks for progress. Who is in the news for appointment to "Car C'zar?"
A) Body il 'Fisher du Sade, Car Czar
B) Fleet Woods Irons, Car and Driver C'zar
C) Jim AC Crichey, Car and Alligator Leather Seat Covers C'zar
D) Isiah "Hurt Billionaire Athlete" Thomas, Car C'zar
E) Steve Rattner, Car C'zar
F) Romeo Alfa Guido, Car C'zar



3) Opinion -- Mark Hartley | 12.11.08 ::If the the events of the last few months teach us nothing else, it’s that the government should be working like crazy to get out of the way of commerce, as opposed to trying to control or manage it. An Energy Czar is yet another role that is outside the constitutional scope of the congress, an effort not capable of being effectively implemented in Washington and without merit considering our current economic outlook. President elect Obama should be slashing positions and departments, not adding to them.
Department of Transportation - Get rid of it
EPA - Get rid of it
Department of Commerce - Get rid of it.
Department of Energy - Get rid of it
The role of the congress is to oversee national lands and pays bills (read the constitution). Keep the Department of the Interior and get rid of the rest. Energy Czar… no way. “Climate czarina”… you’ve got to be kidding me. [Note: this #3 could be your freebie this week]

A) Strongly Agree
B) Somewhat Agree
C) Eh ..is Burt Reynolds available ...
D) Disagree
E) What again is a "C'zar" ?

4) "He\She\It is passionate about HIV, and he\she\it knows health care systems. This means the office of AIDS C'zar ______________ will be relevant. She\He\It will champion us and our needs in the health care reform process."
A) Bonnie Adams Kapp
B) Jeffrey Crowley
C) Chris Collins
D) Magic Johnson
E) Davida Munar-Sheit

5) The most contentious issue that the "new Faith based C'zar," ___________________," will have to help resolve is whether Mr. Obama should rescind a Bush administration legal memorandum that allows religious groups that receive government money to hire only those who share their faith. Mr. Obama said last June, "If you get a federal grant, you can't use that grant money to proselytize people you help, discriminate against them - nor against the people you hire - on the basis of their religion."
A) Herod O'Psthumous
B) Mother Mara Vanderslice
C) Jeremiah Wright
D) Joshua DuBois
E) Pontious Pilate

6) Radio-Internet Fairness Czar – This may actually come under Cass Sunstein, Regulatory Czar, who is advocating The Fairness Doctrine for the Internet and which may also include Radio. In fact, I believe Rush Limbaugh will be on Glenn Beck discussing this very topic. I have a post here: New Censorship Czar to Target Blogosphere that discusses Sunstein’s agenda. Which of these below is a quote from Sunstein:
A) “Redistribution of wealth both within and among nations is absolutely essential, if a decent life is to be provided for every human being.”
B) "The movement some call “Obama 2.0″ is now recruiting students and offering to provide credits toward degree plans in exchange for their advocacy skills."
C) "A system of limitless individual choices, with respect to communications, is not necessarily in the interest of citizenship and self-government,” he wrote. “Democratic efforts to reduce the resulting problems ought not be rejected in freedom’s name.”



D) "... Holder’s evasive responses represent the first hint that the new Administration may re-open what has been “settled doctrine” within the Department of Justice and in the courts for over two decades; namely, that the old Fairness Doctrine is an unconstitutional restraint on free speech. Not to mention that the original argument used to justify these restrictions—that the scarcity of media outlets required the government to intervene in order to guarantee a "diversity" of political opinion—has long since been overwhelmed by the proliferation of cable channels, web sites, blogs, and so on.
E) "... The 1940s regulation that created the Fairness Doctrine was held to be unconstitutional by a 1986 decision of the Federal Communications Commission. The Department of Justice reached the same conclusion in 1987 when it advised the President to veto a bill that would have codified the Fairness Doctrine by statute."




7) The Great Lakes C'zar, ____________ , will coordinate efforts of about a dozen federal agencies working on the Great Lakes project, which deals with issues such as invasive species, polluted harbors, sewage overflows and degraded wildlife habitat. Obama promised during his campaign last year to create such a position. His proposed 2010 budget seeks $475 million in new spending on the lakes. [HERE]
A) Eerie
B) Hudson
C) Brooklyn
D) Aden Bay
E) Davis


8) And in the Homeland of the Czars – Russia – our very own homegrown Prez, Barry Obama, has exceeded the Romanov Dynasty with their historical reign of 18 C'zars -- with Obama coining plus or minus 51 presidential and Congressional appointed C'zars.

From 1613 – 1917, the Romanovs had only 18 Czars.
What’s next – Special Forces C'zars Appointments of Czars's Czar? Hulu Hoop C'zar?

Wake Up, America – Our Goverment is out of control.
A) True
B) False
C) Mostly True because the US Presidency is up for sale, unprotected ... suspect of NWO presage.... I don't know.
D) A, B,and E are correct
E) Insert: Cappucino Cafe C'zar for Wake Up America !
F) C'zar's watching C'zar's, when Colonel Hogan needed a strictly audio impression of Adolf Hitler, the men generally agreed that Kinchloe was the better choice for the job over Sergeant Carter ... alluded to in film "Inglourious Basterds" where one critic exclaims: " ... Tarantino is cinema's version of Girl Talk. Not to say there isn't artistic value in mash-ups, but no one will describe their production as 'song-writing'. [Whatever] you think that Tarantino did was cool, was stolen from other movies (SOURCE)" :: That's harsh, Dude.

I'm hesitamt to comment here, so I'll be brief.
"No comment; M_P Wiesenheimer, you have a near-perfect post with this one. I'm informed, appalled, outraged, entertained, relieved, uplifted, depressed, just to name a few of my emotions and thoughts. The only thing I see missing is an image of a beautiful woman which doesn't seem to have anything to do with it at all."
