Evil Bush joke: What’s a Tragedy?

President Bush makes an official visit to an elementary school and is invited to sit in for one of the classes. They are in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asks the President if he would like to lead the class in the discussion of the word, ‘tragedy’. So the illustrious leader asks the class for an example of a tragedy.
One little boy stands up and offers, “If my best friend, who lives next door, is playing in the street and a car comes along and runs him over, that would be a tragedy.”
“No,” says Bush, “that would be an ACCIDENT.”
A little girl raises her hand: “If a school bus carrying 50 children drove off a cliff, killing everyone involved, that would be a tragedy.”
“I’m afraid not,” explains Mr. President. “That’s what we would call a GREAT LOSS.”
The room goes silent. No other children volunteer. President Bush searches the room.
“Isn’t there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?”
Finally, way in the back of the room, a small boy raises his hand and says, “If Air Force One, carrying Mr. & Mrs. Bush, was struck by a missile and blown to smithereens by a terrorist like Osama bin Laden, that would be a tragedy.”
“Fantastic,” exclaims Bush, “that’s right. And can you tell me WHY that would be a TRAGEDY?”
“Well,” says the boy, “because it wouldn’t be an accident, and it certainly wouldn’t be a great loss.”

    Thanks, that was one of the best jokes I’ve read about our commander-in-thief since he literally ‘took office’. Now he will lead the troops into
    battle, of course from the safety of the Oval Office, which for Bush is more like a teenager’s den (no offense to the teen crowd in America).
    We are witnessing the Orwellian nightmare that
    was predicted many years ago, the horrors of
    a Big Brother state and the mind control brainwashing ‘war is peace’ ‘slavery is freedom’.
    Bush is dangerous because he is so stupid.
    Today Iraq, tomorrow N. Korea, and then the
    world!! The Empire era begins in ernest.
    How soon the decline and fall?
    But Bush is merely a puppet on a vast Washington D.C. stage. The major players are invisible and we will never hear of them, never.
    He does their bidding, a minion in the very real world of global domination and corporate control. Pity that empire might prove to be our doom not only as a nation but the very globe itself.
    Bush will not care one way or the other. When WWIII begins he’ll be reading a children’s book in some elementary school classroom totally unaware of the crisis.

    former american here
    (one cannot choose where where one was born!)
    who is not ashamed to say that I HATE my country -not just the evil politicians but the whole society.
    There is very little good in america, and if you find some there you will not see large numbers of people following it.
    I left that evil place because I couldn’t get away from the “smoke a camel” jokes -even at church!
    In my Christian outlook, the scariest thing about america is that all the americans are just as supid as Bush.. why do I say Christian??
    Because if any of these so called Christians would actually read the Bible they say they follow, they would find that Christ denounces everything they hold dear.. greed, selfishness, love of violence, hate, etc. etc. etc.
    Truth is, they are just as selectively ignorant to these facts as Bush who also says he is a christian.
    No true follower of Christ would ever wage war, it is completely against everything Christianity is supposed to stand for.. but as has been the case throughout history, leaders lay a smokescreen of Christian jargan and then do what they want, while all the while, stupid “christians” believe it because they don’t even bother to read the very book they say is the basis of their beliefs. (crusades, slavery, segregation, aparthied, the list is endless!)
    And if they did chance to read it, they would believe the leader of their country before they believed the God of the universe, this is due to their perverse Nationalism.
    I don’t have time to visit another favourite of mine.. “come let us reason together” the Bible states.. every american I’ve ever met has the reasoning ability of asphalt.
    Idiots all of them, I was never happier than the day I left that evil soil and I will never return of my own will.
    -free at last, free at last, thank God almighty, I am free at last!
