It’s All Your Fault I Screen My Phone Calls

(Sorry for the title ripoff, Robyn. Couldn’t resist.)

Tell me. Does this not sound like a valid question:

“If you have to work so damned hard to get around someone’s call blocking/spam filters/restraining order, what the HELL makes you think they’re gonna buy your damned timeshare/viagra/crap?”

And yet, yesterday, idiot telemarketers got together to sue the FTC over its proposed Do-Not-Call List. They say it is a freedom of speech issue. I know. Stop laughing. They’re serious.

“The FTC is singling out this form of advertising now, what will be next?” said DMA President Robert Weintzen in a prepared statement.

Unprecedented popular adoration for a government agency would be my guess, Bob.
