    Test Alert

    Must not have worked in my area. I turned on my TV, radio, computer, & cell phone @ 2 PM EDT and did not receive any alert on any of them. I've previously received local emergency management alerts such as evacuation advisory for chemical spills, etc. on my landline, but house phone has not rung this afternoon - not even a telemarketer call.

    I have 2 cellphones both turned on. Both received it. My home phone also runs cellular (StraightTalk Home). It didn't get it. But it's not capable of it anyway.

    I was hoping every liberal in America got the alert, blew a gasket and destroyed their phones. Then I thought better of it. They'd just go ransack and loot Starbucks stores to get enough to buy the latest overrpriced iApplePhone so they could complain to each other about Trump and sexism and misogyny and being white.

    So instead I took pleasure in seeing a number of tweets with them whining and complaining that they were forced awake in the afternoon (presumably after a hard night of gaming, or sitting around complaining all night about patriarchy, fascists and Trump).

    Owning guns isn't a right. If it was a right it would be in the Constitution.

    My mom, son , daughter and her boyfriend and I  were all sitting in the same room. Mom and my son got it. The rest of 
    us didn't. My son has a straight talk, Mom and me have AT&T prepaid phones. My Daughter and her boyfriend 
    have AT&T contract phones.
