Speaking of sh**holes…

Hawaiian kids assigned to a sh**hole, literally

Panic spread through the state of Hawaii on Saturday morning when residents received a phone alert for an ‘inbound ballistic missile threat’ that was accidentally sent out by Civil Defense but which was not corrected for the best part of an hour. …

It read: ‘BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL’.

A similar message flashed up on local television networks …. It was caused by an employee at Civil Defense who ‘pushed the wrong buttons’ during a shift handover. The mistake was corrected by government agencies on Twitter 12 minutes later but it took 37 minutes for another phone alert to be issued confirming to residents that it was a false alarm. Some say they never received a second phone alert at all.

When it became clear that it was a false alarm, their panic turned to fury. [story]

Wellll… mebbe not everybody was furious.

Some CD guy is bein’ put-in for a NorKean medal.
It’s the one product they have no shortage of.

As some wag said,
Hawaiians now know what it’s like to live in Israel.

    This brings all sorts of scenarios to mind. Was this an extreme test if the Emergency Broadcast System? You know, let’s see how the peasants react. Was it really just some moron at the button? Or maybe, just maybe, Lil Kim got off a shot and all that “Star Wars” technology they made fun of Reagan about worked?

    If the Norks are a smoldering crater tomorrow morning, I think we can assume it was the last one.

    “This Hawaii missle scare is on YOU Mr. Trump. The real FEAR that mothers & fathers & children felt is on YOU. It is on YOUR ARROGANCE. HUBRIS. NARCISSISM. RAGE. EGO. IMMATURITY and your UNSTABLE IDIOCY. Shame on your hate filled self. YOU DID THIS!”

    An actual tweet from yesterday (typos and ALL CAPS in the original) by Hollywood hyper-intellectual Jamie Lee Curtis.

    Hawaii is not in danger. US Pacific Command is tracking every Japanese carrier. We know where they are….. This time…..

    Did anybody bother to head back to the storm drains and make sure all those kids have been recovered? And if you find Jamie Lee or Jim, you can leave them there. And weld the covers shut. Their careers are shot and nobody’s going to miss them anyway.
