Which reminds me that there was an episode of the classic series that
involved criminals sending out fake tsunami alerts so that they could rob
abandoned stores, or something like that.

Really? You begrudge the good people of Hawaii for pissing themselves
when their own government told them that a real missile, very possibly
nuclear, was on its way to them?

There was a delay that must have seemed endless between the time they
put out the alert and the time they announced that it was a false alarm.
In the meantime, those who heard the alert must have been absolutely
TERRIFIED. I can't begin to blame them.

I can't imagine how the dad could treat the whole thing as a big joke,
unless perhaps he was one of the EMA employees who knew it was a mistake
from the moment it happened. Maybe I'm just too serious....

Or maybe he realized that running around in a panic doesn't do you any
good and if a MIRV is incoming, there's really nowhere to go, so you
might as well enjoy the last few minutes you have.

your family and everybody you know to die.

If it's a nucular missile, you're just not going to have to worry about

What are you going to do if you're in Hawai'i and an atomic missile is
headed your way? If there's a girl, kiss her. If there's food, eat it.

Nor can I. The idiot "covering" the story on CBS (David Begnaud) ended
his piece by babbling that the guy who'd pushed the wrong button felt
"terrible."

Things I want to know:

How is it that one jerk can push a single button and get this kind of
result? Why isn't it two guys on separate buttons, or a keyed button,
or just about anything that doesn't result in "Duh, me pooshed wrong
button, me feels terrible"?

Why did those in charge initially think it was adequate to cancel the
alarm on Facebook but not via text alert, the way the alarm had been
sent in the first place?

The White House refused comment, saying the false alert was a "state
issue." No solace was forthcoming from the White House or the
traveling president for the people of Hawaii, who'd been scared out of
their minds. Remember that, all of you.

Rhino is absolutely right about this. I'm going to add that some
idiots in Hawaii really, really need to be fired, and they'd better be.

Hawaii governor: DEMOCRAT
Hawaii senate: 25-0 DEMOCRAT
Hawaii representatives: 46-5 DEMOCRAT

So, clearly, per CNN, the cause of an incompetent government alert that
falsely warned the people of a whole state that they were about to die
is a Republican 6000 miles away in Washington, DC.

If the president had expressed sympathy, wouldn't that help to change
the perception of the Republican Party in that state? The president is
absolutely dreadful at trying to win support from people who don't
already support him.

In the meantime, those who heard the alert must have been absolutely
TERRIFIED. I can't begin to blame them.
Nor can I. The idiot "covering" the story on CBS (David Begnaud) ended
his piece by babbling that the guy who'd pushed the wrong button felt
"terrible."
How is it that one jerk can push a single button and get this kind of
result? Why isn't it two guys on separate buttons, or a keyed button,
or just about anything that doesn't result in "Duh, me pooshed wrong
button, me feels terrible"?
Why did those in charge initially think it was adequate to cancel the
alarm on Facebook but not via text alert, the way the alarm had been
sent in the first place?
The White House refused comment, saying the false alert was a "state
issue." No solace was forthcoming from the White House or the
traveling president for the people of Hawaii, who'd been scared out of
their minds. Remember that, all of you.
Hawaii governor: DEMOCRAT
Hawaii senate: 25-0 DEMOCRAT
Hawaii representatives: 46-5 DEMOCRAT
So, clearly, per CNN, the cause of an incompetent government alert that
falsely warned the people of a whole state that they were about to die
is a Republican 6000 miles away in Washington, DC.
What gives you the idea that CNN said any such thing?
Then give us the proper quote or shut up, Johnston.
The proper quote from what?
I take it from your ignorance that even you don't read your own crap.
I do not know what CNN statement he was characterizing in that way or if
it existed at all, and therefore I can not give the "proper quote". If
you know what he was talking about, then feel free to give the "proper
quote". Otherwise, shut the hell up.

Jeez I've never seen so much freaking out on cable news over a false
alarm, get a grip.
Really? You begrudge the good people of Hawaii for pissing themselves
when their own government told them that a real missile, very possibly
nuclear, was on its way to them?
There was a delay that must have seemed endless between the time they
put out the alert and the time they announced that it was a false alarm.

It's all in the interest of deceiving that wily Wo Fat.
Which reminds me that there was an episode of the classic series that
involved criminals sending out fake tsunami alerts so that they could rob
abandoned stores, or something like that.
I thought I saw that in CSI:Miami (yes, I'll admit
I watched a couple of episodes...).

Then again, since Horatio's program was so pisspoor they could
easily have just recycled the script.

In 1971, there was a false Emergency Alert Notification from the Emergency Broadcast System that interrupted Saturday morning TV on some stations. Someone had mistakenly placed the wrong word to activate the system. It was on Saturday mornings that they tested the system, and many broadcasters ignored the false alarm.

Why does Hawaii even have a warning system when they have no instructions on where to go for shelter??? I guess it's so you can prepare for your meeting with God. But in all fairness, Hawaii did publish instructions not to use conditioner as it binds radiation to your hair. How very helpful. glad I don't live there.
