Default National Emergency Activation Notification Test‏

Around 2pm today Obama is going to disrupt America some more. What's he up to that we really need to make sure this is working If something so big is happening to us that we have to alert the whole country at the same time we're screwed and should just go home to get turned to dust

i wonder if the emergency alert will be broadcast through the new "smart meter" installed at my house by DTE the other day.

they install, took about 30 seconds. the guy said i could refuse the meter if i wished. he is a contractor and has DTE people tell him that those who decline the smart meter could expect a month fee tacked onto their bill because a person would have to come out and read it.

especially since lots of folks switch to another station when they hear the buzz. today they're going to get the same static and it could be 5 minutes of "War of the Worlds" type panic.

This am at school I jokingly said to some people "ready for the big national alert test today" and they all went "what?" At that point Orson Wells 'War of the Worlds' came to my mind

Go head and blame Obama if you want, but it was Bush that started it.

Oh sure there you go trying to bring common sense into this. Everything is Obama's and Granholm's fault.

Jesus Christ you two, get the fukc over it. I was joking about the president pushing a button for a test & bugging 99% of us for 3 minutes and you get all fucking unglued and have a love fest.

Hate to burst your bubbles but politicians on both sides of the isle don't give a fukc about us and are all just a bunch of millionaires trying to sound bite themselves through another election.

Guess I should have put this in the Pub so you hardliner could fucking recognize a joke. Oh ya, you do know what a joke is, you all put him in the oval office

Tae Bo is Back! on ValuTV

Nothing actually. I even just sifted through the TV listings for 2:00 p.m. today to think of something probably yet funny and could come up with anything worth recording. Tae Bo is Back! was the best I could come up with.
