Government spam

NOTE: I used lowercase spam this time, as it seems the processed meat company doesn’t like me when I use it in all capital letters.

OK, here we go, I have a new number one annoyance. As most of you living in the US know, election day is very close. Well here in Illinois, it seems that our Democratic party has taken up the old fashioned way of reaching people, the telephone. What is wrong with this? Nothing actually, as I enjoy listening to the respected candidates proposals.

What I don’t like, is when I receive 31 phone calls a day from the candidates. In Illinois, Tammy Duckworth, who everyone knows as the woman who lost her legs in Iraq, and actually has a lot of strong views, that even me as a conservative, enjoy. What I don’t like, is that it is 12pm, lunchtime, here in the Chicago land area, and I have 9 10 Tammy Duckworth phone calls, from a stupid computer. Now don’t get me wrong, Tammy isn’t the only one, just the worst offender currently.

I think the “smear” campaign ads on TV, the radio, and the Internet are enough. I think this mass calling crap is going to wear thin on the people, and only move them against you, because you bother them from 9am to 9pm. And people wonder why I hate telephones ๐Ÿ™‚

OMG! Right as I go to hit post, guess whose computer called me?

    File a police complaint for harassment. Seriously.

  • I can’t stand the police, but you have a good idea. I wonder how easy it would be to follow through on something like this.

    I liked this lady too, but I have found myself rather annoyed at the messages. If I am one who is like this, I wonder if there are others, and that this could actually hurt a campaign. I could only imagine mothers who are at home with their children constantly getting up to answer the phone. I wonder if they get annoyed as well.
