I thought this was a RINO being afraid to come out and face Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi back when Obamacare was first introduced...

What if you don’t have a desk?
Or four people with one desk?
What is sturdy under a desk to grab onto?

They know something. Comet Ison will be starting to fly over in November and it could cause some gravitational problems. Who knows why they are so concerned now? I don’t ever remember a Global Earthquake drill in my 42 years.

Utah has done this once a year for the past two years. All the school districts, towns, large corporations, organizations, etc. play along. The first time, they played “let’s evacuate the entire University of Utah campus” (faculty, staff, students, most of the hospital employees) and send them to “designated gathering areas” but with nobody in charge and no instructions for what to do once they got there. Ever seen close to 50K people milling around, going “ok what do we do now?” They asked for feedback on the drill. I told them they needed to practice what they would want people to actually do, instead of stupidity.

Must be easier than signing up for Obamacare. Or is that what they just did ?

there may be a somewhat blurred line between the Earthquake Drill and Obamacare but we have not been able to log on to determine....that relationship as yet.

I did however hear that the ghost of Saul Alinksy is planning on ducking beneath this desk this morning...
