Service Workers' Union  
I have come to the conclusion that the Service Workers' Union is dealing with employment loss in the state of Indiana by having their members call registered voters. Many times. Hourly. For two days.

Kudos to them for the full employment plan. One hopes they will find valued positions as telemarketers for timeshares after the election is over.

At this stage, I'm about ready to vote for any candidate that will promise a federal law banning pre-election telephone calls...

Our Telephone Preference Scheme has (surprise!) an exception for politicians.

So when one lot called me up I explained to them that I had made it clear by joining that scheme that I did not want such calls, and that the fact that they had given themselves that exemption did not change this.

That, in fact, anyone who thought that the existence of that exemption meant that I would welcome such calls was obviously far too stupid for me ever to consider voting for.

So how did they show that they were actually intelligent and competent enough to run things? The same lot called me again the next day.

Of course these days those calls (or the ones to you) may be a Joe Job - I saw some reports that the Republicans pulled that the last time round.

So does the US Do Not Call List law.

Welcome to what we got in Iowa in December (and November, and for that matter, October).

It'll end tonight - about the time the polls close :-)

Alan's temporary apartment in Lansing came with a landline telephone. Obviously listed. It got more robocalls in a week than my unlisted Ohio landline gets in several month.
