George Bush Doesn’t Care About Blackouts

los angeles blackout mapOk, so apparently there was/is some kind of power problem in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley. From what we’ve been able to discern, it’s just some worker foul-up, not a terrorist attack (although the timing is peculiar).

Oh, and Disneyland is totally fine.

Try not to loot anything if you live out there… mmmkay? This is just a system hiccup.

PS- We’re totally scoping for the valley girl version of Kanye West to fulfill our title suggestion on live TV.

A comment over at BoiFromTroy (let the L.A. vs LA parody begin):

The Horror…no one to tell you what was happening?! OMYGOD! But you’re all OKAY? You’ve all made it? Thank God…there was 2-3 hours where no one was telling you what was happening…phew

If this had gone for more than 6 hours, the national guard would be air-lifting bottled botox into the Hollywood hills.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.

  1. The problem is that it is terrorism without the terrorists doing anything. All we need is a blackout and we get a media panic.

    This is due to our conditioning by the current administration since 9/11. Which changed one thing in my opinion. Many people are quick to jump to conclusions and to bury their heads and wait for the feds to show up.

    Wont it be a comfort when you realize the reason their has been a systematic bi-partisan dismantling of our armed forces was to establish a well trained and practiced mercenary military with no national bond. Where do they practice? Mostly south and central america. Some throughout the rest of the world.

    How do you like THAT conspiracy theory? ;-)

  2. oh… and make sure you download that terror alert tracker… it doesn’t fully permeate your psyche unless you continually see it and hear about it!

    blah!

  3. I don’t know about you guys, but I make hourly checks to http://www.dhs.gov/dhspublic/display?theme=29 and sync my desktop background to the current terror alert level. This way, when I’m sending e-mails to mom or checking out the latest scores on ESPN, I know I should be doing so in either an “elevated” or even “alert” manner.

    I enjoy living my life like a pavlovian dog. At least homeland security is kind enough to let me know when the bogeyman is going to get me.
