but starting next year, all cell phones will be required to have the chip that receives alerts
Dan Stiles: There is no need to have any new software or chips on a phone to receive texts. They are attempting to do something else under the cover of “emergency messages”. I guarantee that this special chip and software has some form of location tracking and spyware on it. Perhaps it is special software that instantly analyzes voice patterns, digitizes the voice characteristics into a packet which is sent to a central server to see if it should be taped. Imagine, worry-free wiretapping! If the voice is that of a wanted criminal or just someone on the wrong side of politics, it could then be directed to start broadcasting location. Big brother is here and he will even let you play games on his electronic handcuffs.
Scott Muller: So all existing phones could simply receive a mass text message gov-spam and you could call the system a success BUT…… “starting next year, all cell phones will be required to have the chip that receives alerts.”????? Why is some special gov-chip required to be in my phone? For the stated purpose of being able to receive “special government text messages” that apparently are incompatible with ordinary text messages and require a special chip? Big brother, intrusive, oppressive government is what it sounds like to me.

I don't think people can be herded like cattle as easily as many think.
Especially when we have officials telling us to get into trains so we can be relocated safely.
We all know where that one goes!
