It’s all Wordnerds fault. She posted this on her blog and, of course, I was forced to take this test. I was kinda’ surprised. I expected my dominate intelligence to be plumbing or leaning against the wall outside of the Quick Stop. I answered the questions honestly and to the best of my abilities. Let’s see how yous’ guys’ do. Post your results in the comment section below.
Your Dominant Intelligence is Linguistic Intelligence
You are excellent with words and language. You explain yourself well.
An elegant speaker, you can converse well with anyone on the fly.
You are also good at remembering information and convicing someone of your point of view. A master of creative phrasing and unique words, you enjoy expanding your vocabulary. You would make a fantastic poet, journalist, writer, teacher, lawyer, politician, or translator.
What is your Dominate Intelligence?
The second really cool thing that happened today is the wonderful news out of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal appeals court overturned the District of Columbia’s long- standing handgun ban Friday, rejecting the city’s argument that the Second Amendment right to bear arms applied only to militias.
In a 2-1 decision, the judges held that the activities protected by the Second Amendment “are not limited to militia service, nor is an individual’s enjoyment of the right contingent” on enrollment in a militia.
The ban on owning handguns went into effect in 1976.
How cool is that? A federal court actually upholding the Consitution rather than twisting it to mean what it was never intended to mean. Ever since this ban was put into law Washington DC has been the murder capitol of the US. There are more shootings there than anywhere else in the country year after year. It’s kind of like Austrailia, proof that gun bans don’t work. Hurray for the Court of Appeals! If the gub’mint of DC decides to continue the fight I’m told the next step is the Supreme Court.
HERE is the pdf of the decision.
