OK guys, here's the deal. My sister in law (16) in school in Northern Ireland has been assigned a report, the premise is the following:

"You're in a hot air balloon, and you're losing altitude. There are several others in the balloon with you. In order not to crash, somebody will have to jump out to save the others. You are George W. Bush. Articulate what you have done for the world, and why you should be allowed to stay".

She's asked me to help her articulate what George Bush has done for the world as she knows I voted for him. Keep in mind this needs to be from a world perspective and not a domestic perspective. An example I gave her was GW giving 10 billion or whatever it was he promised to fight AIDS in Africa. What I need is brief examples of what GW has done for the world. I know it's soppy, but my sis in law is a good kid, and I promised. Help a brother out!

TIA!

Got rid of Saddam Hussein and the Taliban and freed over 50 million people to liberal democracy directly through his policies.

Answer is…

George don’t beg, he don’t whine and cry for his life he acts like a man and sacrifices all to save the team.

That will throw them for a loop.

Got Khadafy to give up on his WMD program.
Got India and Pakistan talking to each other and not threatening nuclear war.
Brought down the Taliban. Brought down Saddam Hussien.
Took on the challenge of really dealing with Terrorism.
Dealt successfully with the Clinton recession, and the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Served his country honorably as an intercepter pilot.
Good husband and father.

Sounds like a good record to me.

I don't doubt that John effing Kerry would come up with lots of reasons why someone else would jump, I'm not sure that Bush wouldn't sacrifice himself for others.

It's a fucked up, leading question to attempt to indoctrinate kids in liberal Europe. We all know this.

He also signed into law the Central American Free Trade Agreement Implemenation Act.

Not sure how Europe views this, but has opened up the country to more imports, and allow LDCs (Less Developed Nations, (aka 3 world shit holes)) to compete in our markets.

THat seems like a good question to me, possibly written by a conservative. It forces brick-head euro-socialists to research the good stuff that GWB has done.

And allows more exports, as it reduces import tarrifs in those countries.

That is an INCREDIBLY STUPID LIBERAL ASSHAT SCENARIO!!!

Ok...here is the correct answer: Think of this as your sister's Kobayashi Maru-a (No-win scenario.).

1. Unless there is a massive hole in the gas bag, the balloon will settle relatively slowly, thus nobody needs to jump.

2. IF there was a large hole and the gas was venting rapidly then NO ONE would survive.

3. All people are equal in this scenario. None deserve preference for any reason. That said, some of us would sacrifice their lives for others. Would Bush or another passenger do so? Doesn't matter because...

4. Bush, being a man of sound mind would not normally have climbed into a hot-air balloon without first ensuring that all safety features of the ballon were in proper operating order, that the pilot was not impaired in any way, that the weather was satisfactory for "flying" the balloon, and that there were no obstuctions that might damage the balloon.

5. Why pose this silly question in the first place? Her instructor could have just as easily have asked her to post a sort of curriculum vitae for Bush. Just tell the class of his accomplishments. Why put the BS in there about the requirement to sacrifice another life for Bush?

In any case, what Bush HAS done for the world is meaningless to liberals. They don't think like most of us...so this entire exercise is a waste of time.

Total BS. Tell her so.

I have. She knows how I feel about the mentality over there.

We had this girl here for 6 weeks this summer. I took her shooting with my M4, M1A, shotty, handguns, etc. Took her to Gettysburg for a 4 day weekend. Watched hours of Fox News ETC ETC ETC. I honestly think I made a significant dent in what has been force fed to her for 16 years.

Her sister (my wife) had a Bill Clinton light switch cover when I met her, along with a John Lennon poster on her wall. She is now a rock solid conservative and voted for GW.

Well done.

As President of the United States George W. Bush would do the following.

1. Since it is a hot air balloon he would tweak the propane jet and allow air to superheat in the envelope thus causing the balloon and basket to gain altitude.
2. That having assisted the people involved he would next release some sand that is used as ballast. Last time I checked passengers are not considered ballast.
3. Upon landing he would asswhip the silly SOB that had neglected to problem-solve his way out of the predicament, had him hauled off to Marion Federal Penitentiary for a period of not less than 20 years and instructed the warden to lose the key.
4. He'd then have organized a kick-ass Texas sized BBQ to celebrate the event and gone on to other issues of the day.

Because he's the 800 lb. gorilla in the balloon and the rest of the world can FOAD!
Link Posted: 9/21/2005 2:22:29 PM EDT
answer is easy...

live well, do your duty, die well

if it was life or death jump (if i was bush and had the balls i should have) instead of whining about what i've done in the past to justifice someone else jumping (unless it was michael more then i would just heave his ass out regardess).

Next question: If a category five hurricane is barrelling towards the coast, how can we blame it on Bush?
Link Posted: 9/21/2005 2:33:17 PM EDT
This is an incredibly simple answer: The other passengers are Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden. President Bush throws them out, and lands the balloon.
