Comments:We truly wonder where the FTC Officials who are contemplating this lunacy went to school. It could not have been Penn State, Michigan, Texas, Montana, or similar. Was it DeVry? Or Brown? Or a JC? What is wrong with you people and why can you not understand the concept of Private Property Rights? Decent Americans do NOT wish to EVER be violated by ANY intrusive telephone calls. NONE. EVER. Not even by Sears at 2:00 PM to give us a friendly reminder that our dishwasher warranty is expiring. We don't even want to hear from the FTC or any of their Associates, Poll Takers, or Follow-Up Contact Workers. Ever, ever, ever. Being a lawmaker or a bureaucratic official is a super-easy job. It's a sit-down job. A lot of schmoozing and Brooks Brothers styling. And that's ok with us. We find it silly, but it's ok. But couldn't you please find the time, as good Christians, to "Just Say No" (as Nancy proclaims), to all of the schmucks, hucksters, marketing folk, direct mail people, telemarketers, pitchmen, auto-dialers, customer "service" folk, discounters, catalogers, bankers, brokers, and all the rest of these hideously offensive vulgar ilk? Please? We do not wish to hear from them, their marketing "affiliates", or any form of their automated dialing / contact machinery. Ever. Ever. Ever. Ever. Thank you for listening. God Bless all of you and the Great United States of America. PS - and, if you find the time, you're welcome to ban cell phones. No hurry, but 2005 will do nicely.
