Can the calls!

June 5, 2014 

I cannot even express into words my extreme disapproval and disgust over the amount of campaign calls I have received in the last two weeks before the elections! The abuse of privilege and the disregard for people’s privacy in their own homes. I could not hold a simple conversation, long distance, without having someone chime in five times within an hour. I received up to eight calls a day, more if it’s call waiting, from potential campaign candidates. This is outrageous!

There need to be boundaries, regulations and laws, put into place, regarding these issues. These calls were worse than telemarketers. At least telemarketers only call once. If it is this bad now, what’s it going to be like down the road? No more calls, please. They’ve gone too far!
